Get ready for things to start heating up in the romance department this week as you right-swipe on some Tinder hotties (and hopefully find your match). Whether you’re looking for a summer fling or something for the long haul, Memorial Day weekend is the perfect time to get things rolling in the summer dating department. But first things first: Work duties call as you’re presented with a slew of deadlines and projects that need to be completed before the extended weekend. Read: This is not the week to slack off.

Cancer: June 21 – July 22
Whatever you do, don’t quit daydreaming. A true visionary like yourself is destined for big things. Join forces with like-minded creative types that will inspire you to launch your side hustle and be your own boss. Channel confidence with a daring new ‘do, and don’t take “no” for an answer when it comes to negotiating the bottom line.
Leo: July 23 – August 22
Drama begone! If (and when) conflict rises at work or on the homefront this week, choose to be the bigger person. Make an effort to hear all sides before turning a petty argument into a full-blown showdown. Not seeing eye-to-eye with your roommates or S.O.? It might be time to give them some space — a spontaneous getaway to the beach with your squad is exactly what the doctor ordered. Live a little, Leo!

Taurus: April 20 – May 20
Beware of your splurgy side these next few weeks as a trip to the mall could quickly turn into a mini shopping spree. Before venturing out to pick up that one thing for an upcoming getaway, set a budget… and stick to it!
