April 20-May 20
Your month gets off to a fabulous start, Taurus, with lots of action happening around you. This is a monumental time of the year filled with positive energy and new ideas! You’ll be eager to commemorate your birthday in style. While you’re often the type of gal to stick to a casual vibe, you’re looking to upgrade your birthday ensemble from jeans and a tee to something a bit more elegant, like this stunning cocktail dress. You’ll be the life of your own party this year, so stay polished in a sleek pair of heels. Round out your birthday look with a pearlescent beaded clutch and diamond-esque rhinestone earrings (an accessible nod to your exceptional birthstone, April babies). You’ll keep your pout perfectly shiny with this fruit-flavored lip gloss infused with real flowers — ideal for earth signs and a real conversation piece.
Ruled by Venus, the planet which bestows beauty and love into the world, you’re likely to feel your best when you look your best, Taurus. Start your mornings off right with a marvelous motivational mug that’ll inspire you to keep the good vibes flowing for the rest of the year!
May 21-June 20
With your ruling planet, Mercury, going retrograde this month (April 28th-May 22nd), you may discover that your phenomenal communication skills are not up to par. When words aren’t enough, express yourself with a statement piece of jewelry. We love this versatile necklace with emerald-hued stone embellishments (ideal for May babies). Prep for your new year with lots of rest and relaxation. You’re worth it, Gemini!
June 21-July 22
Relationships are a major focus for you this month, Cancer. With the Moon as your ruler, emotions have the tendency to run high when the celestial body is at its fullest on April 22nd. Use this mystical time to meditate and focus on your intentions for the month! If you happen to be tapped into your natural psychic abilities like many water signs, use this charming keepsake box (appropriately adorned with gilded moon & stars) to store your tarot cards or crystals.
July 23-August 22
Often a leader and standout trendsetter, you may find yourself being overly influenced by others this month, Leo. To regain your sense of individuality, shine brightly in a bold pair of shoes. We love this style for its vibrant yellow hue — sure to represent the lioness at her best. If you’re feeling emotionally stretched, spend some time in the fresh outdoors to recharge your batteries. With the Sun as your ruler, you’ll find the added dose of vitamin D to be invaluable!
August 23-September 22
This will be a rather hectic month for you, Virgo. Be careful not to overcommit on too many projects. Always a go-getter, you’re out there conquering the world — but don’t forget to stay fueled! Keep your bevvie of choice close at-hand in this on-the-go ceramic travel mug, perfect for midday pick-me-ups! Try to remain flexible with your routine by taking some time out for yourself. As an earth sign, spring is an excellent season for you to begin a new yoga class or explore the parks in your area.
September 23-October 22
Communication is tricky for you this month, Libra. You may find yourself in a battle between your head and heart. Convincing other people that your opinions are sound may not be easy right now. Win over friends and colleagues by sharing your ideas in a visual way. To ensure that you don’t forget anything of importance at home, stay prepared with this posh bucket bag. Its gentle carnation color (ideal for warm-hearted Libra ladies) and adorable tassel detailing is fab for every occasion from desk to dinner!
October 23-November 21
Known for your passionate spirit and emotional depth, this month will challenge you to be even more receptive about relationships, Scorpio. Ever the type to broach a wide range of subjects with an open mind, you could potentially find yourself questioning your stance on an important issue. If the mood strikes, be ready for anything in this delightfully flirty bralette. Its lace fabrication provides a fabulous foundation that will accommodate every outfit from workout gear to a breezy blouse.
November 22-December 21
This is a positive month for you, Sagittarius. It’s a wonderful time to make new changes and forge a brighter path ahead! With Jupiter as your ruling planet, your natural inclination to explore unchartered territory is strong. Use any extra bursts of energy you may experience during this period to find the time to visit a new place. You’re at your best when you are expanding your knowledge of the world. While making your way from one destination to the next, be sure all your absolute must-haves are at the ready! This handy travel wallet is not only charming, but also highly effective at concealing everything from a passport and boarding pass to currency of all kinds.
December 22-January 19
This is a complicated time for you, Capricorn. Your intuition could potentially send you mixed signals. It would be wise to withhold from making any important decisions until Mercury goes direct on May 22nd. Focus on relationships with your closest loved ones. Ambitious and constantly climbing the proverbial ladder, this is a crucial time for you to sit back and smell the
roses home cooking! Many Caps are gifted chefs. If it has been awhile since you whipped up something delicious in the kitchen (or you’ve never bothered to try), find the time to create something new! When you’re mastering the recipe for your new favorite dish, stay looking fresh in a lively floral-print apron.
January 20-February 18
Stand by your convictions this month, Aquarius. You’re attuned to a heightened sense of creativity. Allow your innovative ideas to flow freely! It is innate for the water bearer to be ahead of her time. When others don’t understand your approach to a situation, have patience. You may be misunderstood at first, but eventually your positive intentions and idealistic visions will be made clear to all. When you’re dreaming up your big plans for the future, we recommend doing so in this fanciful maxi dress! With its beautiful boho vibe and artistic pattern, it suits the Aquarian energy wonderfully.
February 19-March 20
This month will deliver an unexpected monetary safety net for you, Pisces. Your hard work is finally paying off, and you’ll be able to reap the rewards of your labor. While basking in the glow of financial freedom, make time for a weekend getaway with a partner or close pal. The fish lady is naturally at home in any body of water, be it a hot tub, pool, lake, or ocean, so be sure to get out there and experience the life aquatic! In need of a new suit for the season? This eye-catching one piece is sure to make a splash wherever you go.
