There’s even more to this clean sweep: On July 18, Venus will make her annual stopover in your sign until the 31st. Meow, baby! Your magnetism is off the charts when the planet of love is in Virgo. There’s one clause, though — from July 25 to September 6, Venus will be retrograde. This could stir up some old insecurities or a conflict that was never fully dealt with. Be brave and face those demons head-on. You could rise to a new level of emotional maturity in the process. If you cut off a connection prematurely, Venus’ backspin gives you a chance to mend fences. The sequel could be far better than the first run (but you might not know for certain until the fall). Single Virgos, get out and mingle. With the sun in your 11th house of teams, you could meet your mate in a kickball league, at a meditation retreat, or while caravanning to Lollapalooza with a large group of friends. Digital dating is promising, too, especially near the new moon on the 15th. Click and ye shall find.

To get the nails, apply basecoat or a two-in-one nail color that contains one to protect your nails. Paint a rich-green polish over your nails and let dry. Finish with topcoat.
