Aries (March 21-April 19)
July: Your focus is on home and family this month. However, be patient with others to avoid disputes. Harmony is essential to the happiness and health of every family; and family is everything. Fortunately, fair Venus will sweeten your words and make it easy for you to be diplomatic and charming with everyone. Excellent!
August: This is your month to play! Movies, picnics, parties, vacations, sports and playful activities with children will be tops on your menu. You will also want to redecorate and make your home look more attractive this month. Good time to entertain loved ones. However, your efficiency on the job will suffer with delays and goofy errors. Good luck!
Lucky Days: July 15, 16 August 11, 12
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
July: The pace of your days accelerates this month with short trips, errands and talking to everyone. But you will love it! You will be forceful if you have to negotiate with anyone. This is a strong month for finances. Enjoy shopping for beautiful things for yourself and loved ones. Ka-ching.
August: You continue to charm everyone you meet. In fact, this is a great month for writers and those of you in sales, marketing, teaching or acting. Yes, your words are gold. However, this month your focus turns to home and family because there is increased chaos and activity at home. This might be due to renovations, visiting guests or residential moves. Be patient with relatives, especially parents.
Lucky Days: July 19, 20 August 15, 16, 17

July: Shop for wardrobe items this month because fair Venus is in your sign, which means you will like what you see in the mirror. It’s easy to be charming and sociable with everyone. Meanwhile, your primary focus is on money and cash flow this month. You are working hard to earn it and working hard to spend it! (Oh dear.)
August: Your days will quicken in August because your schedule is much busier. Expect to take short trips and be involved with visits, family discussions and increased reading and writing. Relatives you have not seen for a while will be on your doorstep – so stock the fridge. Someone will end up on your sofa, almost certainly. You might boost your income this month.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)
July: This is your power month and your chance to rejuvenate yourself for the coming year! You are strong, direct and effective in all your dealings with others. Try to get physical exercise or compete in sports to release pent-up energy. Secret love affairs might blossom in secret for some of you. You’re filled with money-making ideas and this pleases you.
August: Your money-making ideas from last month now become a top priority for you. This (possibly something else) galvanizes you into action to work hard to boost your earnings. You might want to show off something new that makes you proud. Warning: Mercury retrograde will create transportation delays. This is a poor time to buy ground transportation, computers and cell phones.
Lucky Days: July 21, 22 August 18, 19
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
July: Take a breather this month so you can ground yourself (you can’t be all things to all people all of the time). Nevertheless, you will enjoy group activities and fun times with friends. Group activities will be a positive experience whether social or business. Things are so warm and easy with someone; a friend could become a lover (hmmm, that’s tricky).
August: Ta da! It’s your turn to step out centre stage and greet the world. With the Sun in your sign, you attract favourable situations and important people. You are also energized because fiery Mars is in Leo as well. Go out in full dazzle. Enjoy schmoozing with everyone. One dark cloud on your horizon is that finances are delayed this month (nothing is perfect).
Lucky Days: July 23, 24 August 20, 21
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
July: A popular month for Virgos. Everyone wants to see your face. Accept all invitations. You might also be involved in group sports or some kind of competition. Meanwhile, relations with bosses, parents and VIPs couldn’t be better (a romance with a boss might begin). Someone wants your creative input on how to make something look better.
August: You will meet with some frustrations because Mercury is retrograde in your sign at this time, which brings delays, confusion, mixed-up conversations, missed appointments, car problems, and lost or misplaced items. Equipment breakdowns as well as computer problems are likely (sigh). Fortunately, friends are warm and supportive this month. A blessing!
Lucky Days: July 25, 26 August 22, 23
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
July: This is a powerful time because bosses, VIPs and parents are impressed with you (you don’t even have to do anything special). Take advantage of this blessing! Advance your own agenda. Ask for what you want because you couldn’t pick a better time. Meanwhile, travel for pleasure beckons (let’s hope you get top service).
August: You continue to enjoy a good reputation in the eyes of authority figures. But now, groups and friends will demand your attention. You might be elected to head a club, organization, class or meeting because you are in takeover frame of mind. You can direct the efforts of others. Note: This is one of the best months of the year for your sign to set goals.
Lucky Days: July 1, 2, 27, 28 August 24, 25

(Bonus!) Someone will give you the money or the support to travel. Meanwhile, sex is hot and passionate!
August: This is the only month all year when the Sun is at the top of your chart casting you in a flattering light. You impress everyone, especially people in power. While this is happening, use it to your advantage. Ask for what you want. Romance with someone from another culture or a different country might blossom. Expect to hear from old friends you haven’t seen for a while.
Lucky Days: July 26, 27, 28 August 26, 27, 28
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
July: An interesting month! Relations with partners, spouses and close friends are excellent. However, disputes about shared property, inheritances and anything you own jointly with others are likely. This means you have to be open-minded because we do not all share the same values. Meanwhile, passionate intimacy will be juicy diary fodder, but who has time to write?
August: You are the traveller of the zodiac and this is one of the best months all year to travel. Say no more. Pack your bags and get thee to an airport (someone will help you do this). Expect to deal with parents and bosses you have not seen for a while, which might be an opportunity for closure or bonding.
Lucky Days: July 5, 6, 7 August 1, 2, 29, 30
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
July: Don’t worry if you feel low energy this month because this is to be expected. One aspect that is draining is that you feel annoyed with partners, spouses and close friends. Challenging times like this sap your energy because you need to be patient to survive. Fortunately, relations with work colleagues are excellent (Whew!).
August: What a difference a month makes! Now your relations with partners, spouses and close friends improve. Admittedly, you might face disputes about shared property, inheritances, taxes, debt and insurance issues. Nevertheless, the support of loved ones is a treat. Be on the lookout for travel delays and mix-ups regarding travel. Double check everything.
Lucky Days: July 7, 8, 9 August 4, 5, 31
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
July: Romance, playful activities with children, sports and the arts appeal. However, this month your primary focus is to get better organized. You want your efforts to count. You want the most bang for your buck. Perfect. This motivation guarantees results. Your work will make you feel on top of your scene at home and on the job. A welcome reward!
August: Once every two years, fiery Mars sits opposite your sign promoting dissension with partners and close friends (basically, you find them annoying). Be assured that by next month, this is gone. What a relief! In the meantime, patience is your best ally because patience is the antidote to anger. Enjoy warm relations with work colleagues.
Lucky Days: July 10, 11 August 6, 7, 8
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

Enjoy movies, art performances, parties, social occasions, sports events, picnics, playful activities with children, flirtations, and romance. Grab every chance to express your creativity. This is an ideal time for a vacation. You also want to redecorate your home and entertain. Enjoy!
August: Although romance and fun times are still favoured, now your focus turns to work and getting better organized. It’s time. Delegate work to others if you can because you want the satisfaction of feeling caught up and in charge of a situation that is running smoothly. Yes!
