Libra: September 23 – October 22
New Libra, new rules: It’s time to take matters into your own hands and go after what you want. You’d be ah-mazed at what you can accomplish when you stop making sacrifices for everyone else and start setting goals. Whether you resolve to work out more, cut out unnecessary spending (sorry, but those velvet ankle booties will have to wait!) or start saying “yes” to more opportunities, there’s nothing you can’t do.

Sagittarius: November 22 – December 21
Resist the urge to get caught up in petty drama that will only leave you feeling more defeated in the end. Instead, man (or woman up) to any mistakes you might’ve made and be all ears when your roomie or bestie is ready to talk. At the same time, know when it’s okay to stand up for yourself — whether at home or in the boardroom, disrespect is one thing that should never be tolerated.

If August proved to be a doozy, then expect September to be 10 times crazier.
