August 4, 2013 

Aries: March 21-April 19

A friendly moon is increasing your sex drive. You'll want to hook up with somebody, even if getting involved isn’t such a great idea. It probably isn’t wise to look up your ex, even if you’re still hung up on him or her.

Taurus: April 20-May 20

You'll have loads of energy, thanks to Mercury. You'll go on three dates in one night or schedule a bunch of new job interviews with companies you’ve been dying to work with. The good news? Some of your efforts will definitely pay off.

Gemini: May 21-June 21

You’re wondering if you should get back in touch with a missed connection. Maybe you went out on a date with somebody just once, and things were awkward. You might still be thinking about this person. The moon says it’s worth it to give things another try.

Cancer: June 22-July 22

Group situations have never been your thing, and this week, you'll be more annoyed about parties or networking events than ever before. Try to overcome your nervousness. Pluto says you might meet some really cool people.

Leo: July 23-Aug. 22

With Mercury entering your sign, you could be inspired to reach out to friends you haven’t seen for a while. Maybe there’s somebody you used to date, and you’re wondering what happened to him or her. It’s worth doing a little detective work.

Virgo: Aug. 23-Sept. 22

It’s important for you to be surrounded by quality friends and companions. You hate hanging out with dumb folks or people whose idea of enlightenment is listening to Fox News or hanging out on hate-filled Web sites. Venus says ditch the losers.

Libra: Sept. 23-Oct. 23

A friend might try to set you up with someone. You’ve been a little shy and withdrawn lately, but it would be good for you to get out there and socialize. The moon says attend a party, visit with some long-lost friends, or go to a business networking event.

Scorpio: Oct. 24-Nov. 21

Jupiter is reminding you that you want to accomplish big things. Talk with your honey about your plans to take over the world. Consult a mentor, a therapist, or a spiritual advisor. If you focus on making your dreams come true, anything can happen.

Sagittarius: Nov. 22-Dec. 21

The new moon is reminding you that there’s no need to let negative people hold you back. You might need to let go of a long-term friendship or romantic dalliance that has been dragging you down. You’re better off alone than expending energy on somebody yucky.

Capricorn: Dec. 22-Jan.19

It’s time to access your spiritual side. Neptune is reminding you that you have a lot of intense impressions about people, and you should pay attention to your instincts. If you’re interested in somebody but you get a bad vibe about them, don’t ignore your feelings.

Aquarius: Jan. 20-Feb. 18

With Mercury moving opposite your sign for a few weeks, it’s important to be patient about your social life. If you’re interested in someone, don’t try to put a lot of pressure on the situation. Allow more time for things to unfold.

Pisces: Feb. 19-March 20

A super sensitive moon could be making you moody. You’re wondering why relationships have to be so complicated. You know what? They don’t. If you’re involved with friends or lovers who drag you down, maybe it’s time to reevaluate those relationships.
