You may feel especially nostalgic this month as your minds drifts to fond memories of summer vacations and childhood friends. Reach out to the people that you think of. They would love to hear from you! At work, higher-ups may be considering you for a leadership spot. On the 13th, cut yourself some slack.
Aquarius: Jan. 21-Feb. 19 / Flower: Orchid
“Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.” This sage advice comes from Albert Einstein and this is the month to heed his words! If you feel overwhelmed, decide that you will chip away at projects a little bit at a time. The key though is returning to them regularly so that you can eventually finish them all. Keep your energy up by keeping your love life exciting. The 8th is a good day for a calculated risk.
Pisces: Feb. 20-March 20 / Flower: Alstroemeria
Make a point of kicking off your shoes and hitting the dance floor. More likely than not you will be the belle of the disco ball. You are poised for major success at work when your favorite project gets all the attention it deserves because of your stellar efforts. You need to make a final decision about an on-again/off-again situation. The weekend of the 17th is perfect time to flirt so don’t be shy. Life is short, enjoy every moment!
Aries: March 21-April 20 / Flower: Tulip
Bide your time with a testy situation with a colleague or neighbor. She/he may just need some distance.

Work calls for extra discretion; remember that gossip is never good.
Taurus: April 21-May 21 / Flower: Lily
Married Taurus: As summer heats up, don’t sweat the small stuff. Instead, ask yourself: “Will this matter in five years?” Single Taurus: That sweet guy that needs a makeover keeps knocking at your door. You could tactfully suggest new jeans or a new ‘do, but a major overhaul is too much too much. Remember you can’t change another person. But the good news is there’s a whole lot o’ fish in the sea.
Gemini: May 22-June 21 / Flower: Rose
This month, focus on listening, even if you feel more like talking. On the work front, you have been discouraged. Be patient, persistent and consistent, and you will triumph! Also remember that networking is a two-way street, ie when working the room, ask not what other people can do for you but what you can do for others. This is a great time to pick a weekend to meet friends for a girls getaway or couples gathering.
Cancer: June 22-July 22 / Flower: Delphinium
You may be asked by a person from your past to keep a major secret. Oblige for a period of time. Friction at work lifts as the team bands together; meanwhile, change is in the air. And you may suddenly find that mentor you’ve been after. Toward month’s end, don’t let your need to take care of others get you into trouble. Your sly sense of humor saves the day on the 22nd.
Leo: July 23- Aug. 22 / Flower: Sunflower
You are often seen as playful and proud, but you also deserve credit for your less-showy traits like determination and patience. You are seeking a way to fulfill your prodigious talent and you will find it. Then, watch out because you are unstoppable! Your numerous skills and abilities have not gone unnoticed by your special someone. Just the opposite: learning more and more about you is deepening and intensifying your bond.
Virgo: Aug. 23-Sept. 23 / Flower: Daisy
Ralph Waldo Emerson said: “We are all inventors, each sailing out on a voyage of discovery, guided each by a private chart, of which there is no duplicate. The world is all gates, all opportunities.” Little Virgo likes order and logic, but let yourself be dreamy sometimes. That’s how good ideas are hatched. An exciting new romance has long-term potential. Let yourself swoon!
Libra: Sept. 24-Oct. 23 / Flower: Hydrangea
You may need an extra page in your calendar to keep track of all your social events. You will sparkle and shine, and you just might make an important connection at a midmonth gathering. A tense conversation midmonth makes you realize that someone close to you is experiencing a flash of jealousy at your success and good fortune. This will pass, though, so be diplomatic. Volunteer your time the weekend of the 24th.
Scorpio: Oct. 24-Nov. 22 / Flower: Peony
A family reunion makes you realize how lucky you are, in more ways than one. The first part of the month is best for travel. A May/December romance may take on some summertime sizzle. Ooh la la! Rely on your intuition the week of the 12th. Your healthy eating habits are much admired at the workplace. Why not take center stage and make lunch for the whole crew one day?
Sagittarius: Nov. 23-Dec. 21 / Flower: Carnation
You may be asked to negotiate a tricky situation and be tempted to back away. Give it a shot as it is likely lead to growth for all concerned.

The 8th, 11th and 27th will be lucky.
