Brain power. Thanks to Mercury, you can reshape relationships and save some money with a little thinking. Those super-charged synapses can also help you heal old emotional wounds.

Life at home in August will get even better if you can find a compromise between realistic desires and what you really want.
Cancer: June 21 to
Fear not. In June, a friend can end your jitters. Reading will help, too. To solve a relationship problem, give a lover the same freedom to screw up that you give your closest friends. End June by starting to teach, mentor or write. You've got a great piece of wisdom to offer; July could be more profitable if you do. In August, return to your social roots. If you're traveling to visit old friends, good times will outweigh travel delays.
Leo: July 23 to
The troubles you need. Every favor from a friend will come with a problem attached. However, problems can be fixed with a little courage and no fear. Your love life? This summer, there's nothing sexier than self-confidence. In July, think of more work as more chances to show how good you are. People are watching.

Someone older than you will steer you in the right direction.

Sagittarius: November 22 to December 21
What are friends for? In June, let them play Cupid. Does someone have the perfect spot for a romantic escape? Can you borrow it? Go.

Capricorn: December 22 to January 19
Grow up! Your charms can draw favors from friends. Those favors might help at work, but they won't resolve serious troubles. You'll find those solutions in books and magazines.

In August, follow Kerouac and Steinbeck into road scholarship. You might find yourself. Relationship? It gets more serious when summer ends.
Aquarius: January 20 to February 18
It's all in your head. Drop old emotional hangups. Then you can really enjoy being a mental hottie. That's right. It doesn't matter how you look or what you wear. This summer, people are totally turned on by your mind. Your verbal striptease? Talk about philosophy, religion, art, music or books. Work may pile on in July, but you've got the power. Can you handle a more intense relationship? Somebody hopes so. Spend August prepping for September. Rest. Study. Plot the months ahead. But don't make a move until after Labor Day.
Pisces: February 19 to March 20
Trendy or timeless? Resist the urge to reinvent your surroundings in June. By July, all of June's great-but-conflicting ideas will come together in unexpected ways.

In August, a love note could get you into trouble -- so whisper, but don't write.

Saving for a sunny day. Resist all those new-toy temptations and hold on to your money in June. July is your best travel month. Whether you like hiking in the mountains or gambling in Las Vegas, timing is the secret to a great summer getaway. Thinking about throwing a Gatsby-style summer bash for friends and neighbors? You could create the most over-the-top event, but it won't make you or your guests happy. They want relaxed time with you. Looking for (more) love in August? You'll find it in the healthiest places.
