Although the temperature is rising, that doesn’t mean that you can’t cuddle and raise your own heat index this summer.

Aries (March 21-April 20)

Fun-loving lambda Rams can jump in way over their heads this August as their appetite for romance, overall pleasure and monster festivities mix to form a potent and intoxicating brew. You are the one to know in every possible sense. Your attendance is required at all of the best parties. It will be easy to get lost in all of the dissipation. But isn’t that the point?

Taurus (April 21-May 21)

Stay close to home this August and spend your time reviewing your domestic agenda by feathering your nest and solidifying relationships. Or if you have itchy hooves, why not trot over to a local watering hole and see who grazes by? Sapphic Bulls need no excuse to lounge the month away but do so with a bevy of beauties who rest on your every word… or rest on something else.

Gemini (May 22-June 21)

You know just what to say to turn a girls head. Now that she is paying attention, now what? Geminis can be very flirtatious and coy but sometimes that is as far as you go. Take action this August.  You need to figure out your next big move before the summer heat begins to cool. Maybe you can get some advice from a co-worker. Or maybe you are just working with her.

Cancer (June 22-July 23)

Cancers are flush with cash and are looking for a face and a place to spend it. You will have lots of choices for both! So watch your bottom line all through August while you fritter your assets and expand your universe. Try gatecrashing a few top-notch events or launch a soon-to-be-legendary one yourself. At the very least become a legend in your own mind.

Leo (July 24-Aug 23)

Charisma is your middle name this month, Lioness, as the world beats a path to your door. Your personal oil can be spread all over town and among some very influential and powerful folks. Start cooking. Be sure to make the social rounds and lead some ladies to your lair. By Labor Day you may have a houseful of girlfriends. When is too much? I don’t know either!

Virgo (Aug 24-Sept 23)

You have a secret admirer who is not afraid to reveal herself to you. Now that you know who she is, what is your next move? Virgos are conservative by nature but you can now benefit from taking a little risk or two. Why not say exactly how you feel. Then see how she feels back. All this feeling back and forth could begin to get very interesting…

Libra (Sept 24-Oct 23)

Girlfriends want to get in on your act this August. Are you ready to lead a pride parade of gal pals? Libras are very sociable and love to be in the epicentre of all the friendly fun. But be sure that all the festivities don’t blow your budget. Fun may cost much more than you expect. When in doubt try socializing on the cheap. Is a bathtub full of champale anyone…?

Scorpio (Oct 24-Nov 22)

You have a tiger in your tank and it is time you release her, Scorpio. Get out and about, meet and greet and sweep a few powerbrokers off their feet. August brings you corporate advancement, political acumen and a chance to grab more money and power. Hurry before your tank empties and your best move is from the couch to the beer locker.

Sagittarius (Nov 23-Dec 22)

Sagittarians are always up for adventure and August is an especially good month to get out of town. No matter where you decide to travel, your vacation will be filled with romance, luck and great memories. So choose a particularly lovely locale and travel with a bosom buddy. If time and money are tight, infuse your life with exotic stimuli closer to home. Anyone, we know…?

Capricorn (Dec 23-Jan 20)

Expect some confusion between platonic and passionate relationships this August as signals may be mixed and intentions misunderstood. But that is part of the fun, like a blindfold in an orgy.  Or is it? Capricorns like to see things clearly so carefully delineate the parameters of your relationships like who is who and what is what.  Then you can figure out the why, how and where.

Aquarius (Jan 21-Feb 19)

There is nothing sexier than a woman on top and in charge. Whew! So broadcast all of your accomplishments this August and don’t be shy, Aqueerius. You will find that it will strengthen any current relationships and forge new ones. For those seeking a connection, plug into the social circuit and see who lights up. Burning the midnight oil at work does not count.

Pisces (Feb 20-March 20)

August could be a good month for summer school. Self-improvement and personal advancement should be on your agenda, whether educational or physical pursuits. To expand your horizons, apply yourself to the job at hand and reap the rewards this fall. You will become a major force in anything you decide to do. Prepare, Pisces. Then rule. Heh, heh.
