An informal friendship could grow into a bigger, much more important relationship today; they could become a person who influences your life in either a romantic or a business sense. To make sure you know who you're dealing with, pay attention to the details around them. Ask the type of probing questions that will reveal what they really think of the current situation – and how they might like it to change. Make sure you're the one pushing things forward, not them.
CancerJun 21 – Jul 22
Your brain is still in high gear as the week begins. Expect to have a quick wit and a sharp memory on Monday – but just be sure you think before you speak. That mental might should transform into irresistible charm on Monday night and continue on through Wednesday. Use that boost in charisma to socialize, especially in large groups. Others will look to you to take the lead. On Thursday and Friday, take a walk on the wild side. You need to challenge expectations and try something new. This weekend, you've got the energy and confidence to accomplish anything.
There’s a Mercury-Venus sextile on September 3 that starts your month on a fun and positive note. You’ve got oodles of charm, which comes in handy when asking people for favors. Never one to take something for nothing, though, you always offer whatever you can manage in return.
A Mars-Venus square on the eighth is a very sexual transit, but it can also highlight problems where there’s already tension. This is an active time (if you know what we mean!), but increased desire can lead to increased risks. Don’t forget about the consequences.
The new moon is in practical Virgo on September 9, limiting your indulgences. Virgo’s practical energy makes this a good time to evaluate your goals and reprioritize your to-do list if necessary. Wasting time is one of your worst pet peeves, so you’re only interested in doing what’s necessary to get the job done.
A sun-Mercury conjunction on the twentieth makes you curious about a lot of different things, and it’s the perfect time to do research and interviews. Spending your free time having long discussions about a variety of topics is your idea of a good time, and why wouldn’t it be? Your thought processes are crystal clear, and your communication skills are unmatched.
