DIY Astro Guide: What Your Horoscope Means This Week, 8/1/2016
Cue the WTF moments — August’s off to a fiery start. Between a creativity rut, drama in paradise with your boo and an itch to travel the world, you’ve got your work cut out for you. Join forces with like-minded creative types, and face all problems head on, for a streamlined work week that won’t send you running for the hills come Friday. Beat a case of the Mondays with a couple boozy espresso drinks, and scroll down to see what the stars have in store for you in this week’s AstroStyle horoscope.
Leo: July 23 – August 22
This is NOT the week to trek out to the market in your frumpiest sweats. Between a dreamy suitor, an ex from your past or the CEO at your dream company, you just never know who you might brush shoulders with. Use this time to invest in a killer jumpsuit, a come-hither slip dress or an off-duty bomber jacket for subtle sex appeal.

Virgo: August 23 – September 22
Brace yourself, Virgo! While you’re not one to typically get involved with petty boardroom drama, this week could be the exception. You need to be able to stand up for yourself (and ask the tough questions) when things take a turn for the worse. Not seeing eye-to-eye with the roomie? Let the search for your very own bachelorette pad begin!

Scorpio: October 23 – November 21
It’s raining moolah all this week! But not so fast, Scorpio. Before you go spending your life’s inheritance on a cool new sports car or that designer bag you’ve been eyeing, put it toward your Jamaica fund. Better yet, invest it in some stock or use the funds to turn your side hustle into a full-time gig.

Sagittarius: November 22 – December 21
Blame it on this week’s Bachelorette finale or call it fate, but this could be the week you hand out a final rose to your Prince (or Princess) Charming. Before committing to forever, take all necessary precautions to make sure you and your boo are on the same page about kids and a charming cottage in the countryside. Single? Ditch the Tinder romance for an IRL date with that cute barista at your favorite coffee shop.

Capricorn: December 22 – January 19
If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again! Allow this to be your mantra for the week as you revisit old goals and direct your attention to any home decor projects that got put on the back burner. It’s ah-mazing what a little Martha Stewart-inspired decorating (a small gallery wall here, a DIY color-block dresser there) can do for the soul.

Aquarius: January 20 – February 18
Resist the urge to sweep your problems under the rug — you’ll have to confront your demons at some point, Aquarius! Be it creative differences with your design team or a fallout with your boo, there’s no point in avoiding the inevitable. A change in direction on a website redesign project or a “break” with your S.O. could be just the clarity you’ve been hoping for.

Pisces: February 19 – March 20
It’s go time, Pisces! After downing one too many calorie-filled fruity cocktails during holiday, there’s no time like RN to jump back on the wellness bandwagon. Kick off your week of clean eating with a homemade açai smoothie bowl and an early-morning yoga sesh in the park. A workout partner may or may not be encouraged as you sign up for your first 5K.

Taurus: April 20 – May 20
Feeling cramped in Chateau Taurus? A new neighborhood (or swanky loft in the city) could be a necessary change of pace. DO start the apartment hunting process, but steer clear of any leases that are too good to be true. (Odds are, they are!) Can’t foot the bill for a big move this month? Embrace small apartment renovations and try maximizing your space with some feng shui.

Gemini: May 21 – June 20
Relationships rule supreme all this week as you find yourself growing closer to potential love interests and reconnecting with former flames that have done you wrong in the past. Proceed with caution, but do open your heart to the potential of finding your soulmate. Just as you would ask for a prenup in a marriage, don’t hesitate to seek out legal help when working with business partners.

Cancer: June 21 – July 22
Dedicate this week to making smart choices that have a positive impact on your physical (and mental) health. Make a vow to drink more water and pack healthy snacks (carrot sticks! apple slices!) that don’t leave you feeling deflated by the end of the workday. When you find yourself running on zero momentum, desk exercises and power naps will kick any creativity rut to the curb.
