StyleScope: August 2013

Your astrological guide to cosmic chic.


Aries: You finally have the energy to hone the skills you’ve been longing to perfect, whether you’ve been trying to become an expert at Excel or a yoga master. Let your hard work pay off and treat yourself to a colorful new tote, one that’s spacious enough to carry your yoga mat… or your laptop.


Taurus: Now is the perfect time for you to take some time to relax at home, in hopes that you can avoid  conflicts that may arise. Look on the bright side and take this time to polish up your look with a cheerful pedi – it’s also the perfect excuse to score those open-toe booties you’ve been eyeing.


Gemini: Your work at the office will finally slow down and allow you extra free time, so plan one last summer holiday or a long weekend getaway—you’ve earned it! A chic-yet- practical convertible backpack will take your from day adventures to dinner al fresco.


Cancer: The new moons on the 6th and 20th of the month will bring you wealth and success, so now is the most ideal time to invest in wardrobe essentials like a luxe leather bag or tall riding boots – you’ll love them forever and they’ll never go out of style.


Leo: A full celestial satellite in your solar home will provide good luck in any endeavors this month. Show appreciation in what and who you have in your life by giving your loved ones a “just because” gift. Share your good fortune with an up-to-the-minute watch.


Virgo: Your month will start off slower than normal. Indulge in some much-needed R&R because you’ll be packed with appointments and projects in the latter half of the month. Use this downtime to your advantage: grab a new fedora and a light denim jacket and head out for relaxing strolls through the farmer’s market or along the river.


Libra: You’ll feel a heightened sense of instinct and foresight this month, so follow your gut and set high personal goals for yourself. Channel this shrewd, fearless energy with a sharply tailored printed blazer and sky-high statement heels.


Scorpio: The long, hot summer is winding down and a fresh jolt of energy will awaken your spirits. Swap out the sandals you’ve been wearing all season for some on-trend wedge sneakers or booties. A new pair of kicks will be the perfect addition for exciting adventures in the fall.


Sagittarius: Go the extra mile in the office and your boss will surely recognize your hard work. Stand out from your colleagues in bold colors and sharp tailoring. A sleek new purse with special compartments for your tablet and phone will also help keep you organized and stylish.


Capricorn: With the Sun, Mercury, and Venus aligned, you will have much luck in your love life this month. Whether you’re having fun being single or happily in a relationship, keep a sexy dress and eye-catching clutch on hand for some hot dates!


Aquarius: Your self-determination and motivation will drive you to improve your physical and mental health. You’ll feel invigorated both inside and out, so update your wardrobe with new-season military-inspired pieces that are sure to command attention.


Pisces: This last month of summer will feel hectic as you scramble to get everything on your plate finished. Focus your energy towards your work and keep your clothes simple and versatile, changing your look up with great shoes and accessories. The black-and-white trend is the perfect platform to let a bright bag or pump pop.
