Then ride that productive wave and feel the glorious satisfaction as you check things off your to-do list! The sixth house also rules health and exercise, so use this mercurial motivation to get back into the fitness groove.

Bulls on fleek! You’ll feel like a scintillating siren for the next few weeks as cosmic tease Mercury dances into Virgo and your glamorous fifth house until September 5. If you’ve been crushing on someone in your Crossfit class, suggest a post-workout smoothie run and see where things go from there. Maybe you’ve been considering a few different Tinder or Bumble possibilities? Stop texting and get on a video chat or, if you’re comfortable, meet in person. You can narrow down your options once you’ve done a live assessment of their potential. If you’re already in a relationship, spice things up with an out-of-the-box surprise. Rose petals on the bed are always fun, but how about organizing a sexy scavenger hunt? See the full week >
Reach out to the all-important ladies in your life. It’s time to strengthen those bonds as your ruler, messenger Mercury, sails through Virgo and your feminine fourth house until September 5.

Supporting a powerful woman at the office could evolve into a serious career boost. Place a call to your mom, sister or a favorite aunt and see about setting up a get-together.

Shout those wise words from the rooftops, Cancer! Eloquent Mercury voyages through Virgo until September 5, supercharging your third house of communication. For the next few weeks, broadcast your big, brilliant ideas without holding back. The world is listening and ready to reward you for your thrilling insights. It’s a stellar time to launch any writing or multimedia projects that you’ve been developing and watch as they quickly gain momentum. Maybe you finally need to film that YouTube series, get your artwork hung in a coffee shop or find an illustrator to collaborate on that children’s book.

Your money won’t manage itself, Leo, so it’s a good thing that today Mercury wings into Virgo and your financially savvy second house until September 5. If you play your cards right, you could experience a lucrative surge in your cash flow. Be proactive about getting that green! Ask for a raise, go after a big-bucks client or apply for a plummier job. If you’ve got the resources, hire a financial planner to help grow your assets or start an investment portfolio. For Leos with limited means, an app like Mint could be a more cost-effective method of monitoring your budget. Got a promising project in the works? Team up with savvy colleagues who can help make this venture even MORE bankable. Then kick back and watch your future valuation rise! See the full week >
Don’t hold back, Virgo! You’ll have no trouble offering your unfiltered opinions between now and September 5 as your ruler, mouthy Mercury, marches through your sign. Be candid, but also kind. A spoonful of diplomacy helps the harsh critique go down. Remember that the goal is to engage people in thought-provoking analyses—not to alienate them with your overly frank perspective. If you find yourself playing life coach, flip to “selfie cam” mode and focus on yourself instead. This is a fine time to tweak (or totally overhaul) your image, from your online presence to your fall wardrobe. See the full week >
Ready, set, streamline! Get your life in order (and rip through that to-do list) as messenger Mercury hunkers down in your twelfth house of healing and completions until September 5. Tie up those loose ends now, whether you’re trying to resolve an issue in your personal life or crushing a major project at work. While you’re at it, take care of all those pesky errands and schedule any necessary doctor’s appointments. Sure, attacking all these tasks can be annoying, but here’s the bonus: When you’re done, you’ll have empty space on your calendar for self-care. Try doing a daily meditation (apps like Insight Timer are great for this) and, if the budget allows, book at least one healing treatment before your birthday. See the full week >
There’s strength in numbers, Scorpio, so tap into the electrifying buzz of group projects as gregarious Mercury zips into your popularity zone, making you the life of every party for the next few weeks (virtual or non).

Bring your friend along to a group event instead. Mercury’s media-savvy influence helps you evaluate your online presence with a critical eye. Where could you benefit from a digital makeover? Update your profile pics, launch that YouTube channel or write the blog post that’s been brewing in your brain. See the full week >

Over the next few weeks, you’ll impress everyone in your path with your business savvy and initiative. Don’t be surprised if people start using the word “leader” to describe you. Use your power to inspire and lift up others. With all this momentum, you may find it impossible to escape the spotlight. Don’t panic! You don’t have to be “perfect” or have all the answers. Aim for “authentic and engaged” and ask all the right questions to get the intel you need to succeed. See the full week >
