Publish date:


ARIES, March 21–April 19

For Aries, this summer is a great time to expect the unexpected, or the ability to start something new and inspired. Aries love to start fresh, and this is their chance to let themselves open up to a new beginning. 

TAURUS, April 20–May 20

Taurus' energy is more settled and stabilized this summer. Their issue is more enjoying what they already have instead of wishing they had more of everything. In romance, this means "love the one you're with." Fun summer date ideas for Taurus include partner yoga, getting outside, picnics.

GEMINI, May 21–June 20

Gemini is going through a hard time right now, and they need to introduce more stability, consistency, discipline, and patience. This summer is not about new chapters in any area, including romance. It's about letting something come back that was once there before. It's also a great time to work hard and develop a regular yoga practice.

CANCER, June 21–July 22

Cancers are known for their commitment to family and relationships. This summer is a really good time for Cancers to say to their partners, "Let's get the house redone, or increase our commitment to the kids and each other." Romance for them is to play house and do what really matters to them with family.

LEO, July 23–August 22

This summer is a very powerful and fiery time for Leo. Leos must be careful about being too argumentative and ego-driven to prevent challenges to their relationships. It's a great time for Leos to work out their aggression with a higher-voltage practice, like hot yoga.

VIRGO, August 23–September 22

Last summer Virgo fell in love, this summer they are moving in with someone. Whatever started for Virgo last summer is coming to fruition now.

LIBRA, September 23–October 22

Jupiter is in Libra now, which happens once every 12 years, leading to abundance, joy, and very high energy. Libras tend to pretend to want relationships and then become distant. This summer, it's a really good time for their romantic relationships, because they can admit how much they love love.

SCORPIO, October 23–November 21

This summer is a great time for Scorpio to open up the doors of expansion and opportunity, as starting this fall with Jupiter coming to get them, they will be on a roll in business and romance. They can feel the energy building right now. 

SAGITARRIUS, November 22–December 21

For the last two years, our Sag friends have been forcing themselves to work hard and be disciplined. It's not the easiest time for them right now. In relationships, they must be vulnerable, receptive, and humble, and willing to ask for help. They also must learn how to be generous with their heart and not such a know-it-all.

CAPRICORN, December 22–January 19

This is a really good time for Capricorns to resolve to spend more time on their relationships. They have discipline in their corner right now, so it's easier for them to focus than it usually is.

AQUARIUS, January 20–February 18

Aquarius doesn't like to commit and be in only one relationship--they prefer more nontraditional forms of relationships. This summer is their chance to change it up, step outside of the box, and enjoy the freedom of the summer.

PISCES, February 19–March 20

Pisces is in a change cycle. Establishing a consistent, solid, disciplined yoga practice is a good idea for them right now, to help them cope with the change that's coming to their relationships.
