Aries (March 21 – April 19) Gearing up for that big interview, Aries? Your career will be the center of attention on August 25. Spend some time reviewing your résumé and updating your list of references. Spending the extra $1.75 on luxury paper for your CV is worth the change—if you really want the job, that is.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20) Get out there, Taurus! Your house of true love is ready for some attention. The more you mingle, the likelier it is that you’ll run across a potential dearly beloved who hits almost all the marks on your checklist. Leave the judgment at home, plus or minus five days around August 25. Meeting someone at a dive bar isn’t the end of the world—after all, what are you doing there?
Gemini (May 21 – June 20) Stay in, Gemini! Your friends might wonder if you’ve slipped into a deep depression, but just assure them that everybody needs to channel their inner homebody once in awhile. You’ll be turning down party invitations left and right. If you need extra motivation to stay home, it’s kitten season—go get one!
Cancer (June 21 – July 22) Carve out some time for a good ol’ family vacation, Cancer! There’s nothing like renting an RV and traveling across the country with some of your favorite people to fight with—we’re talking parents, cousins, aunts, uncles and kids. No one should be left out of this family bonding trip—pack your bags on August 21.
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22) Money in the bank, Leo! Your finances are starting to make their way into the clear. Say goodbye to the red—and hello to an extra chunk of change that will land in your bank account around August 25. Don’t jet set to the casinos just yet; the cash will come from a freelance project that you’ve most likely forgotten about, not from a round of Craps or Texas Hold’em.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22) Make a list and check it twice, Virgo! Jupiter meets your sign on August 26, so what does that mean for you? You’ve got all week to write down your personal and professional hopes and desires. Want a new mattress? Write it down. Want a new partner? Jot it down. Whatever you’ve been hankering for is just around the corner celestially.
Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22) Sign on the dotted line, Libra! Whether you’re selling your house, opening a checking account or adopting a pet—you’ve got a commitment to make. Don’t worry—Jupiter is on your side with your signature. Go with your gut and quit worrying about the fine print. You’ve done all the research you can!
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21) Take a risk, Scorpio! Invest in Alphabet—go skydiving—head to the casino! Moral of the story: Listen to whatever your daring heart desires. Spoiler alert: Nothing can go wrong on August 25, so live it up. Feel free to bring along friends for the ride, but keep in mind that this extra dose of luck is pretty much exclusive to Scorpios.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21) And the award goes to … Sagittarius! Your hard work has paid off—and the stars heard you whistling while you were working, as did your boss. (More like heard you humming “Uptown Funk” while you were working, but you get the point.) A new position or promotion is headed to your résumé. Wear your best outfit to work on August 24.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19) Take a break, Capricorn! It’s time for a little vacation. Work has been full of, well, too much work. While the thought of a vacation might sound more like a distant dream—this will not be a mirage you are experiencing on August 25. The countdown begins and so do your endless mimosas.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18) Did you hire a personal banker, Aquarius? It’s starting to show! Whatever adjustments you’ve made to your budget—leaving the Two Buck Chuck and chocolate bars behind at Trader Joe’s—is paying off. A new sense of fiscal responsibility has overtaken you! Enjoy the ride and your hefty savings account.
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20) An emotional breakthrough is headed straight for you, Pisces! We’re talking your significant other here. Think big: Your partner might start doing his or her own laundry and the dishes without any nagging. Could you even imagine?! You can thank Jupiter for that one.
