VIRGO (Aug 23-Sept 22): Hey, guess what, Virgo? You’re looking out for others this month while putting your own needs on the backburner. Does that sound like every other month? It should. It’s just a Virgo thing. This month, however, others may take notice and appreciate the work you do – and you should let them. Enjoy that pat on the back or high-five. Let your partner spoil you for a change. Or, if you’re single, get ready to meet someone who is even more of a “giver” than you are.
LIBRA (Sept 23-Oct 22): You have a wild desire to spend money this month, Libra. And if you have some wiggle room in your budget, go ahead and treat yourself. Chances are, you won’t splurge too much, and you’ll reign in your spree well before mid-month. Then, it’s likely that you’ll get a sudden windfall of cash from an unexpected source. It is, after all, all about balance with you, isn’t it? If you are in a committed relationship, trust your partner’s guidance on an important matter.
SCORPIO (Oct 23-Nov 21): You are all about self-improvement right now, Scorpio, and you’re looking fabulous. Sure, other people work out and achieve fitness goals right before bathing suit season, but you’re not one to follow the rules. No, you march to the beat of your own drummer, and it works for you. And when October hits, you’ll be able to fit into a pretty sweet Halloween costume. And, speaking of self-improvement, get ready for an unexpected win at work. That thing you’ve been wanting? It’s well within reach.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22-Dec 21): You have a lot of energy to help others this month, Sagittarius. So, you may find yourself volunteering some time to a good cause, and this charitable activity will boost your spirits and put a spring in your step. Unfortunately, though, September doesn’t look great for romance. If you are single, your dating life may be less than stellar this month. However, you may meet a special, bighearted do-gooder while volunteering – Just in time for an October romance.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan 19): This month, you have developed a strong independent streak, Capricorn, and you’ve taken interest in solo activities. You may also find that you are going against the grain at work – not always siding with the popular opinion. And your individuality may pay off when you’re right and everyone else is wrong. Just don’t allow your victory to inflate your ego too much. Toward the end of the month, you may find that you need the full support of a team (at least a few individuals) to accomplish your goals.
AQUARIUS (Jan 20-Feb 18): If you have recently had some trouble keeping up with schedules and due dates, September is the month to turn things around, Aquarius. Lately, both your work and your home life have demanded the need for better organization. And, once you get everything in order, it is likely that you will be rewarded for your efforts. This is also true with matters of the heart. Singles will find that dates go better when they show up on time. And those in committed relationships will enjoy happier partners when they don’t forget birthdays and anniversaries.
PISCES (Feb 19-Mar 20): Asserting yourself is tough this month, Pisces, and this may make things more difficult at work. However, you have an uncanny ability to adapt to practically any situation, and this skill will come in handy while you’re in the process of finding your voice again. If you are single, a special someone might get your back toward mid-month and send some sparks flying in the process. And you’ll be just assertive enough to ask this person out for a coffee, an ice cream cone, or a fun stroll through the park.
ARIES (March 21-April 19): While it may seem like a strange concept for you, Aries, this is a good month to just sit back and chill out. Things are going well for you at work and on the home-front, and the more you just let things be, the better things will go. This even applies to your love life. If you are single, get ready to make a surprising connection in a familiar place. Or, if you are in a committed relationship, you will reconnect with your partner over simple things that both of you enjoy – morning coffee, a favorite television show, or a casual stroll through a nearby park.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your greatest strengths are in the creative sphere this month, Taurus. So, now is a good time to pick up a hobby. Take a painting or drawing class – or purchase one of those adult coloring books. Creativity comes in many different forms and skill levels. If you already have an established artistic streak, you may want to take the plunge and open that Etsy shop or rent space at a craft fair. When it comes to relationships, your artsier side will allow you to surprise your partner with something unexpected.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): If you’ve recently experienced the rockier side of romance, get ready for smoother sailing ahead. For Geminis, September isn’t a great money-making month, but it is an excellent time for matters of the heart. Those in established relationships may notice that ongoing quarrels come to a halt. And singles will suddenly have fewer free weekends. Take the time to nurture your connections, and you will encounter nothing but bliss in the days ahead.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Get ready to be the life of the party, Cancer. Your social calendar is booked, and you are more popular than ever. However, unless you proceed with caution, you may lose sight of the things in your life that truly matter, such as your career and your personal relationships. Just maintain a healthy balance, and all should be well. In fact, your bubbly personality may help you get ahead at work. Or, if you are single, your undeniable charm might catch the eye of a special someone.
LEO (July 23-Aug-22): This month, all work and no play will make Leo – happy. That’s right. You’re really focused on your career right now, and that’s okay. Impress your boss, get that promotion, and show your parents that your college degree is really paying off. Just be careful about mixing work with romance. If you are single, you may be tempted to pursue a relationship at your place of employment. But you should think twice before taking the plunge. The distraction could easily inhibit your success.
