Leo (July 23-August 22)
"The sun in your sign this month should have you getting lots of attention, but you’re all weird and mysteriously emo thanks to all the Cancer planets in your 12th house of secrets. Don’t be passive aggressive and pay close attention to your dreams. Venus in your 2nd house of finance in Virgo can help you get a raise, so it's a good time to ask."
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
"Who’s the sexy librarian/secretary with Venus in her sign this month? Huh? You, my dear! So, vamp it up! Saturn in your 3rd house gives you superpowers of serious conversations that roll off your tongue with ease. So, go ahead and talk to all the big CEO's."
Libra (September 23-October 22)
"O.M.G.! Saturn finally left you alone only to scoot into your house of finance — time to grow up! But, with all those planets in Cancer in your house of career, you can get some serious accomplishments happening this month, so get out there! As for your relationship, it's hot and cold for now."
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
"Oh karma is ze bitch! Don’t try and get away with anything this month. If you got something to put out, do it now, since the sun in your career house will get it noticed. Traveling is not so good this month, unless it's to see an ex."
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
"Ugh! When will Pluto leave our money house alone? Wait until after September 20 to make big buys, or best buys, or whatever else you're wishing for. Make-up sex is oh so steamy this month, just try not to cry! With so much action in your sexy-time house in Cancer, you will hate to love them. Venus in your career house is giving an extra nudge to beam some juju your way, so get it going on!"
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
"Cappies! Pluto is still messing with you! The last few years have been crash and burn, but he goes forward again come September 20. If you’re a December Cap, you’re through the worst. January Caps, hunker down for some losses. That Hades jerk is opposing your relationship house packed with planets this month, so best to save a fight till later, lest it get epical."
Aquarius (January 20-February 19)
"Break some taboos with that voodoo that you do so well. Venus in Virgo in your sex house puts a little kink in your stride. Focus your procrastination for a second, because Saturn is giving you lots of responsibility at work, and if you don’t blow it, you just might blow up."
Pisces (February 20-March 20)
"Poetry much? All your sensitive feelings will practically be oozing out of your every pore looking for a way to make some stuff! A full house in Cancer in your creative/romance house makes it easy to Casanova it all the way to your writing desk/paintbrush/guitar for that rock-opera masterpiece you have been brewing. Venus in your relationship house will send you a muse."
Aries (March 21-April 19)
"Pluto the party pooper is keeping your career a bit pokey till September 20, so keep your power trip in your pocket until then. The planet in charge of the worldwide revolutions, Uranus, just slipped retro in your sign, so your big coup d'état will be better after December."
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
"Slap that heart on your sleeve as the month starts. With three planets in Cancer in your communication house, you might as well eat your heart out while it's ripe. Thinking about tying the knot? Saturn in your marriage house will make you antsy pantsy for that ring, but make sure it's serious."
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
"Maybe a little Gemini whirlwind energy over your décor would be wise, and Venus in your house of home can help you get it together. Saturn is helping you (yes, you, Gemini) get disciplined on a health regime. Grab it while it’s hot and before you get bored."
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
"Don’t get pissy, with Mars in your sign this month you’ll fell mumbly jumbly. But use the guff to get stuff done instead. Pluto the dominatrix is retro in your relationship house till September 20, so don’t let your honey bunny tread on you, stand up for yourself! Jupiter in your sign is giving you extra luck, so take a chance."
