DIY Astro Guide: What Your Horoscope Means This Week, 7/18/2016
Time’s a-ticking to check off your summer bucket list and live more in the moment. If work obligations can wait, do meet up with friends for mini golf on a Friday night or go see an outdoor movie with your boo. Bitten by the travel bug? Keep an eye out for cheap international flights and pencil in a spontaneous getaway STAT. Beat the heat with these scrumptious layered popsicles and scroll down to see what the stars have in store for you in this week’s AstroStyle horoscope.
It always comes down to the moolah! Before you go spending all your hard-earned cash on a new bikini or lace-up ghillies, consider putting a long-term budget into effect. Meet up with a financial advisor, download a budgeting app or go on a spending spree (drastic times call for drastic measures). Hold off until the end of the month, and a splurge (or two) may be in order.

Leo: July 23 – August 22
Ditch the “all work, no play” ‘tude for a more streamlined workflow.

Come the weekend (hello, birthday celebrations!), the only thing on your mind will be cupcakes and bubbly.

Virgo: August 23 – September 22
Don’t let a major case of FOMO get the best of you, Virgo! Turning down a party invite or skipping out on a wild GNO is not the end of the world, especially if it gives you a chance to catch up on those precious Zzzzs. Dial things down a notch by holding a vino-night-turned-girl-chat on Wednesday and skipping happy hour on Friday for an at-home pampering sesh.

Libra: September 23 – October 22
Get ready for LOTS of drama on the homefront this week. Between roommate wars and feng shui disputes, you’ve got your work cut out for you, Libra. It doesn’t matter if you’re shacking up with bae or sharing bunk beds with your college bestie, there’s no time like RN to have “the talk.” If personal space is an issue, then it may be time to find new digs elsewhere or knock down some walls for a much-needed expansion.

Sagittarius: November 22 – December 21
Honesty is the best policy, Sag! Resist the urge to be a people-pleaser when you know there’s something you’ve been wanting to get off your chest. Whether it’s a small pet peeve (your coworker stole your yogurt from the office refrigerator again!) or a full-on spat with your S.O., it’s best to confront things head-on rather than sweep them under the rug for later.

No more excuses, Cap! Don’t settle for second best when you know you’re destined for greatness.

Between a fancy-schmancy headshot and a slew of upcoming projects under your name, it won’t be long before you’re a CEO-in-training.

Aquarius: January 20 – February 18
Kick off Monday with a healthy acai bowl that will help you power through the rest of the work week. If you’ve been feeling more tired and restless than usual, then it may be your body’s way of telling you to get outta town. Unplug for 48-hours, play hooky for the day or wake up to some morning meditation — anything that gives you some peace of mind.

Pisces: February 19 – March 20
Workin’ on your fitness doesn’t always have to correlate with having the perfect bikini bod.

Once you find solace in healthy living, the good vibes are sure follow.

Aries: March 21 – April 19
Not so fast! Resist the urge to get all wrapped up in a fairytale romance when you’ve only been on a handful of dates. You’re not on an episode of The Bachelorette with roses to give out, Aries! Already coupled up? Before making things officially official with your S.O., be sure to have those potentially uncomfortable convos that could prove to be a deal breaker down the road.

Taurus: April 20 – May 20
Have wanderlust, will travel. Name the destination of your dreams and take the necessary steps to make it a reality. Can’t drop everything for a stint in Maui? Try swapping vacay weeks with a coworker or penciling in a getaway for this time next month. In the meantime, grab your squad for an epic road trip (or two) that will push you to play explorer for the day — even if it is in a familiar city.
