Cancer (Jun. 22 Jul. 22)

Sure, Cancers love a beach day, but hiding out with Netflix and air-conditioning can be even better. Mars is in your domestic zone, so it’s prime time for home improvements. Just don’t feed a money pit like William and Kate – their revamp is approaching $ 6.6 million.

Leo (Jul. 23 Aug. 22)

You’ve bitten your tongue until now, but you’ve had strong feelings for a while. With Mercury direct and Mars in your communication zone, there’s no reason to stay quiet: Your truth will set you free. (Unless you’re Robin Thicke, whose truth creeps everyone out.)

Virgo (Aug. 23 Sep. 22)

Mars has set up shop in your get-money zone, so start striving. Be a little friendlier to clients, add extra polish to your presentations, and get some social media buzz going. Putting your soul into your work right now will pay off later – literally and figuratively.

Libra (Sep. 23 Oct. 23)

Expansion is the word of the week, Libra. You might travel to a new state, make a fascinating acquaintance at a 4th of July BBQ, or simply taste-test a vegan hot dog. Stay open to unconventional impulses and you’ll have much more fun.

Scorpio (Oct. 24 Nov. 21)

You may have been treated like a rock star in the past at your office or in your social group, but the situation has changed. To make a mark, you’ve got to step up your game. Throw yourself into a new venture like Gwen Stefani and Pharrell – the challenge will motivate you.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 Dec. 21)

To bring in the new, you’ve got to get rid of the old. Now that Mercury is direct, the time for ruminating is done. Attract abundance by putting on your work gloves and clearing your closet, car, and storage unit of unnecessary items (and the emotional baggage attached).

Capricorn (Dec. 22 Jan. 19)

The wafting smell of sunscreen is urging you poolside, but try to stay focused for at least the first half of the week. Mercury is no longer retrograde and your holding pattern is finally over. Get new business cards printed up and start practicing your firm handshake.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 Feb. 18)

You’ve been feeling sluggish and it’s no wonder – you seem to think soft serve ice cream is the most important meal of the day. Luckily, with Jupiter in your fitness zone, now’s the perfect time to resculpt your body. Listen up, Aquarius: Kale, sweat, repeat.

Pisces (Feb. 19 Mar. 20)

Is it hot in here, or is it just you, Pisces? (To be honest, it’s probably a little bit of both.) Put on your brightest lipstick and let your sexiest self fly. Whether you’re single or paired up, July 4 won’t be the only night you see fireworks this week.

Aries (Mar. 21 Apr. 19)

If you were an octopus, you still wouldn’t have enough arms to hug everyone who needs one this week. Your urge to nurture is due to Jupiter in your domesticity zone. The time may be right to expand your family with a new baby, an adopted pet, or a summer orchid.

Taurus (Apr. 20 May 20)

Mercury is direct (hallelujah!) and it’s time to get out and about. Make sure to get noticed at a party or social function. Please, not like Steven Tyler who wore rainbow hair extensions and a maxi-dress in Milan last week. Just network with as many people as you can.

Gemini (May 21 Jun. 21)

The French call it je ne sais quoi. Simon Cowell called it The X Factor. Whatever it is that makes you sparkle like the world’s most special snowflake, you’ve got it in spades. Make the most of your fortuitous situation and put yourself in the public eye.
