July 23 – August 22
Diamonds and champagne? Really? You can’t even afford a soda and box of Cracker Jacks ®. Why would you spend that anticipated windfall before you even have it in your hands? Do yourself a favor and open an account with your local credit union. By the time May rolls around, you will be happy you did.

August 23 – September 22
Congratulations! You’ve accomplished a difficult task and need to breathe for a beat. But hold up! Remember, you have to finish what you started. You may have won the battle, but there’s still a war to be fought. Take that breath, rejuvenate yourself and come out swinging.

September 23 – October 22
The color blue surrounds you this month, Libra. It may represent your favorite color or your current mood, or possibly your recent high level of integrity. But don’t play “high and mighty” just because you did the right thing. Remember to have a slice of humble pie every now and again; it’s more palatable than a heaping serving of arrogance.

October 23 – November 21
Things are looking up for you, Scorpio. And just in time, too. You’ll be able to get that repair done and still have money left over to put up for emergencies. And you thought it wouldn’t happen. Just remember, like attracts like. So when your knickers are in a twist and your negative vibes are in full force, guess what you’re attracting?

November 22 – December 21
What is with you and your flippant ways? You need to make a decision based on how you truly feel and not based on what others think. And why do you go out of your way to help people you barely know when those who care the most wait patiently for you to take notice of them? It’s time to rethink your priorities. Seriously.

December 22 – January 19
The holidays are over, and it’s back to work as normal. But just because “the season for giving” is over, doesn’t mean you should closet the philanthropist inside you. Say “yes” to those less fortunate than you. Roll up your sleeves and do some charitable work. You will be surprised to find that the one who gains the most from this experience will be you.
January 20 – February 18
Take that trip! Stop making excuses as to why you shouldn’t go and just go. Life is going to happen whether you’re ready for it or not. Why not take some time out and enjoy it rather than watching it pass you by? By the way, your obsessive compulsive behavior needs some tending to. Let it go.

February 19 – March 20
What are you thinking! You cannot dive head first into a new relationship and not expect rejection. You come on too strong too fast. Take things slow and let them happen. Forcing something isn’t going to get you anywhere but Lonely Street. Oh! And don’t forget that the ones who help you when you’re in need, are the ones who deserve a little respect.

March 21—April 19
Oh Aries, what are doing? Pining away after someone who truly never cared about your feelings in the first place is so beneath you. And chasing after rainbows isn’t helping either. Snap out of it! Once you ground yourself, there will be no need to search for the love you so desperately seek—it will find you.

April 20 – May 20
Why are you complaining, you did it to yourself. And now it’s time to pay the piper for the sins of the past. Hopefully, you will learn from your mistakes and use them to your advantage. Unfortunately, your track record does not show promise. Instead of getting even, stop the vicious cycle by admitting you were wrong and apologize. You’ll free yourself from the discontent you’ve been feeling and lighten your load in more ways than you know.

May 21 – June 21
You can be a real stinker at times, can’t you? But you’re also so very wonderful too! So why not let the nice twin out to play more often, and save the stinker for those who deserve it? Remember, Gemini, being nice is not a sign of weakness, and it’s very becoming on you when you decide to wear it. Also, will you stop living in the past and step into today! You’re missing out one of life’s precious gifts—the present.

June 22 – July 22
Between family, friends, school and/or work—not to mention your own problems—your life is a kaleidoscope of emotions right now. There’s a lot being thrown at you and not enough “you” to go around. Take a deep breath and deal with one thing at a time. Remember, it’s okay to say “no.” You can’t solve everyone’s problems and you, alone, cannot save the world. Take time for yourself once in a while, and don’t feel guilty for doing so.
