It came as no shock when Drake named his new album, The Scorpion. With songs like Trust Issues and song lyrics like, "I only love my bed and my momma, I'm sorry." His work truly reflects him as a true, loyal Scorpio. Even if he is on the cusp of Libra, Drake certainly relates more to his Scorpio side. A lot of rappers have shown that their star sign means something to them. Rapper Nas has an entire song called the "Virgo", and Nicki Minaj is famous for her line, "he asked my sign, I said a Sag, I'm a star, Sheriff badge. The dream even does an entire rap on the zodiac, giving it life and presence in our musical world. Lil Wayne is a Libra and is constantly referring to his Libra scales. With all this in mind, do you find that you too relate to your star sign? Check out these horoscopes, which will cater to the prototype of each sign and see if anything connects with you. We will also touch on the month of August, and the end of summer.
Aries (Mar 21-Apr 19)
You've been busy, sometimes it feels like you don't get a moment to rest, but you like it this way. Aries would feel very empty if they didn't have an agenda of some kind. August will be no different as you will be jet-setting and exploring and creating all kinds of adventures. You also will be pulling your weight at work. Accomplishments are very important to you, as you strive to be at the top of the pyramid. This is a sign that likes to make money, and will better themselves and work hard to get to the top. Relaxing Aries is totally different from working Aries. They still like adventures just of a different nature. They know how to party and have a good time. If Aries is in the mood for a party, they might overdo it. Aries loves attention and when they don't get it from their partners they can look elsewhere. Aries kicks ass in an argument, and knows how to play the game. They will strike but they can be over it in a matter of minutes. The emotion they lead with is anger. Aries is more likely to get frustrated about something oppose to crying their eyes out over it. Though there is a sensitive and loving aspect to an Aries person. They might seem really hard and hard to impress, but they do care about others. Sometimes they just don't have the words, and sometimes they do. Aries will find a loophole to get out of trouble. They have an alluring charm that people can't help but forgive. Aries means well, but sometimes they can forget about things and people who are important to them. Aries can't help but get caught up. August will be another on the go month, as Aries probably has their entire schedule sorted out. It's important for Aries to make room for people that they can get deep with and who they really love. Sometimes Aries is so busy they don't have time for romance, but they do what they can to make it work and usually pick partners who also have demanding careers. Regardless, Aries, while they can be bossy, is a very friendly, good-natured sign. As first in the zodiac they can't help but be a little demanding. Aries has a vision, so get on board, or get off the train.
Taurus (Apr 20-May 20)
This is a sign that wants the best things in life. They want things to brag about. As a highly material sign, Taurus will like clothes, stuff, toys, gadgets. They will love to shop when they can though they are known for the pragmatic purchase. They will mull it over before they buy it. Taurus is like this with a lot of things. I know a Taurus who stayed with her company for over ten years. They don't change easily and are pretty set in their ways. Other people can open them up to new things, places, food and drink, but Taurus has a stubborn side and will only do as they wish. Taurus is ruled by Venus (the planet of love) so while they might look like they hate you, they are actually very loving, tender and warm inside. Taurus makes for excellent partners, with the least likely divorce rate in the zodiac, if you fall in love with a Taurus it is likely for life. This August Taurus will do intimate things like spend time with close friends and family. They love to travel and see new spaces. They usually have really good taste and dress well naturally. Taurus girl is often thought of as the zodiac princess in that they are almost always put together perfectly from their head down to their toes. Some Taurus girls can only go glamping, though they do love the sunshine and the outdoors. Taurus just wants to be in a space that they love, and hopefully can call home one day. A big change is on the rise; Taurus simply cannot be lazy. They are very hard-working, and this work pays off, but sometimes they slack in other areas. Taurus is a true friend, someone who will likely be in your life forever. They are usually the best people to talk to about stuff, and give great earthy advice. Taurus needs to be confident right now so that they can get what they want. They have so many wonderful ideas, it's just a matter of putting them into place.
Gemini (May 21-Jun 20)
Gemini can be a jack of all trades. They figure things out easily and don't need a lot of help. Gemini runs their own show. While, Gemini is getting a lot of slack seeing as Donald Trump is one, they actually can be wonderful, very generous and charming people. They rule communications of any kind. They know what to say and when to say it. Many are good writers, but some write like they talk, which could be the case of our president. Gemini's mouths can get them in trouble. They tend to be attracted to gossip and popularity. They want everyone to like them, and sometimes they play the part to make this happen. Other Gems don't give a fuck about what people think, they say what's on their mind and stick to it. Gemini is a visionary. They see things. They notice things. They know how to put things together, and like Taurus often dress to impress. Even if it is a masculine sign, Gemini is quite fem. Gemini males will have plenty of gal pals and they will love to shop and have deep, meaningful conversations. Gemini girls will know how to glamorize. This is an interesting sign because no two Gemini's are alike. As the twins they can either have multiple personalities or play into the good and bad aspects of the twins. Either way, if Gemini is in any trouble, they will know how to talk themselves out of it. Gemini knows how to fake it till they make it. They know how to make connections. They know how to be a leader, and someone that sets the bar high for others. There is a joke that there isn't anything a Gemini couldn't do. Gemini lead with your confidence and your heart. Sometimes you are in your head so much you reject your heart. It's time to stop thinking so much, if you can stop that running dialogue in your head. When it comes to love, Gemini needs a mental connection as well as a physical one. They connect mentally and especially with people they can really open up to. There are good and bad in every sign, but sometimes Gemini is just a gem. Pure and sweet and giving. You never know what you are going to get with this bunch. I once met a Gemini who barely talked, but when he did he was witty and very funny. Gemini knows how to play the game; they just have to keep up on self-care. Taking care of yourself is paramount. Don't go for just anyone, the doubt will sink in. Trust your gut when it comes to love, you'll know you've met them when you're not thinking about their flaws. Gems do strive for perfection, but they just have to find someone who is perfect for them.
Cancer (Jun 21-Jul 22)
Cancer can be tricky because if they don't like you, they won't want to have much to do with you. If Cancer is uncomfortable, they will revert into their cancer shell where they keep hidden thoughts and emotions. Sometimes Cancer avoids certain people all together because they don't mix well with them. As a water sign, Cancer is very sensitive and emotional. They don't want to be the punchline of your joke. They don't want to be put down. Cancer is a moody sign, but when they are in a good mood, they are some of the best people to be around. Known as the zodiac comedian, Cancer is very funny and will make their friends laugh. They usually have close groups of friends or people they hang out with one on one. Cancer isn't a player, even if they try to be, Cancer wants love. The real thing. Cancer is a relationship sign. They are also very paternal, good with kids and animals. Cancer wants to build a foundation. They want to build a home. As a crafty sign, they can be very artistic, and know how to make a space look amazing. Cancer can battle for confidence, but it's important that they own it because this is how they get what they want. When Cancer takes charge, or moves quickly on an idea they can be quite powerful. Cancer might be shy at first, but once you open them up, you will be in the presence of a lovely individual.
Leo (Jul 23-Aug 22)
Happy Birthday, Leo! This is your time to shine and really work on the things you need to seek help with. Don't cut people out who love you just because it suites the optics of your life. Be that 24K gold Lion who will make friends with anyone and show heart and kindness on the regular. August will be a busy month as you celebrate yourself and the direction your life is heading. Things are starting to look up, but they often are for a Leo. The biggest misconception is that Leo's don't have pain or insecurities. In truth, they have much stress and don't always deal with it properly. Leo man will likely shut down and shut off. He will take space from whatever is bothering him and ignore in the hopes of getting back to that good place. Leo girl will need to vent about her problems and will probably take solace in a good friend or even a therapist. Leo puts pressure on themselves to be the best, look the best, and act the best. Sometimes this gets tiring, but Leo pulls it off so well. Leo would rather look at things positively, make jokes, and have a good time. Whatever they do, they are best when they are their own boss and in charge of their business or line of work. Leo is a natural born leader. People admire them and look up to them. As rulers of the heart, Leo can be quite loving and knows how to make other people feel good. Sometimes Leo is too busy taking care of others and forgets their self-care but it's important that Leo find an outlet just for them. Take some alone time. Take some time for you. Leo's love attention, but I know one who hates his birthday and never wants to make a big deal out of himself. This is the modest Leo. The type that knows they've got a lot going for them, but doesn't feel the need to share it with the world. Leo is picky in love, and probably thinks it is never going to happen, but once Leo meets their love, they are certain and there is no going back.
Virgo (Aug 23-Sept 22)
Virgo is the modest version of Leo, they want to make it, but they'll leave the bells and whistles at home. This is a highly intelligent sign who is an extremely hard-worker. They enjoy the comforts of home, but they can't help but want the best out of life. Money is something they hope to make a great deal of. Virgo is very analytical and some are even intuitive. If they know you well, they can just read you. A great sign to lend an ear, Virgo makes for one of the best listeners in the zodiac. Even if they seem like extroverts, there is always something they are keeping to themselves. Virgo doesn't fuck around. They are real people who tell it like it is. Sometimes Virgo takes it too far and is too much. They have to watch that they stay within their limits, and don't reach too far ahead too fast. There are two types of Virgos (as a mutable sign there are actually many) one who wants the attention and will demand it and one who doesn't want to be seen. We're talking very minimal social media usage and ghost profiles. Virgo doesn't always know how to engage, but the other type is flamboyant and will certainly spark a "look at me" vibe. Some Virgo people love to be seen and heard, while others like to keep to themselves. A Virgo might struggle with communication because it is all pent up inside them. Some Virgos can't find the word and are better at getting it down on paper. Generally, a grammar Nazi, Virgo will be the type to fix and notice your mistakes. Bad spelling will be a turn-off to the hardcore Virgo. You've probably noticed that things work out in time, but it takes a lot of hard work and wishing to get there. Virgo needs to stop being so self-critical and secretly hard on themselves. Virgo will strive for perfection if it's possible. Some Virgo people have a smug attitude where they think they are better then everyone else. Emotionally, they might feel connected, but often they are not. Virgo will think before they feel, and sometimes they just do with any caution. Virgo doesn't mind being in love, they are a capable relationship sign, but they are very picky and looking for a love that is perfect for them. It's okay to be different from your partner, Virgo could benefit from a little opposition. What's important is that Virgo learns how to forgive and let things go. It's only hurting you to stay mad at someone. Try to get rid of the saying, "I forgive, but I don't forget." Forgive and forget, everyone is human and makes mistakes. We already have too much hate in this world, let's try to eliminate some of it. Everyone has their story and you don't know where people are coming from or what they've endured in life.
Libra (Sept 23-Oct 22)
Libra is the charmer of the zodiac. Every Libra I've met, knows how to turn it on and turn it off, but they usually turn it on. As the Libra Scales, they often have a hard time figuring how they feel. They can't make decisions easily, and often miss out on things and opportunities as a result. Don’t get it twisted though, Libra can make things happen when they are ready. Many of them are gifted smart. Libra is a flirt, but a bit of a butterfly as they may land somewhere only to fly off to someplace else. They are undecided in love, and often don’t know how they feel. When I say this, I mean that I know many Libras who have stayed in relationships for a long time, without it going anywhere. Some Libra are scared of commitment and saying “I do”. Libra is the type to be attracted to strawberry and vanilla at the same time. They want the best of both worlds. Libras are usually very attractive by nature and quite thoughtful and romantic. They can be players, Libra isn’t always a one love at a time kind of sign, but if they meet someone of control who can provide them with a backbone then they are golden. Libra this is the time to take charge. You are due for a big move. Don’t sit on your thumbs. Start putting plans in motion, even if you have to take it one step at a time. Some signs are killing it on the regular, but you are due, and some of you are overdue.
Scorpio (Oct 23-Nov 21)
If you relate to Scorpion Drake, then you are likely a person of mystery. You have a lot of secrets and secret behavior. You’re not one to talk to much about yourself, in fact you deflect the conversation back onto the other person. Scorpio is the toughest of the water signs, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t have emotions or feel things. They feel things very deeply. Loyal to an extreme Scorpio isn’t the type to flake out on plans. If they say they are going to be there, then they will be there. Scorpio women are usually very capable souls. They know how to build the fort and hold it down. At work, they are usually excellent and produce great results. They are not afraid to step up and take the lead. Scorpio can be controlling and will want things their way. They tend to organize and plan very well. This is an intellectual sign with sharp minds and wise words to share. Scorpio isn’t afraid to roar if they have to as sometimes they can be quite bitchy. That being said they hate having bad blood with the people they love and would love to have harmony at the end of the day. Scorpio wants to say their piece but at the end of the day they want harmony.
Sagittarius (Nov 22-Dec 21)
Sagittarius is the boss of the zodiac, like rapper Jay-Z, Sagittarius can be quite the business person. Sagittarius sees what they want and then they go after it. They have no problems spending time alone, in fact many prefer it. Sagittarius can also suffer from trust issues. They don’t really want everyone knowing their business. If they do want you to know, you will hear about it as Sagittarius can be the type to brag. They are also good at saving money. They don’t believe in reckless spending. They believe in making good investments that are going to benefit them in the long run. Sagittarius love adventure and they will love traveling and doing exciting things. They can be the life of the party as they know how to socialize, especially in a business setting. Very smart, Sagittarius knows what is important in life. They know they have to get a good job and support themselves or a family. In love, they are looking for a ride-or-die partner, someone they can open up to and someone who is going to bring them out emotionally. This is a really great time to ensure that you are communicating with your partner, make sure their needs are met. Don’t be selfish or make it all about you. That will only turn your partner off. Spend the money you’ve saved, but spend it wisely. Make sound investments and trust your natural instincts. You know when someone is coming off a little shady so stay clear.
Capricorn (Dec 22-Jan 19)
This is the time to demand more for yourself on a personal level. You’re likely killing it at work because Capricorn is one of the hardest workers in the zodiac. They just need to be told that their work is good, or that the meal they prepared is tasty. This is a sign that needs their validation, or at least they’d like to get it without having to fish for it. If you’re dating a Capricorn woman let her know she looks good. Compliment Capricorn on the things they are doing right. Capricorn wants the best things out of life. They have high expectations. They want to live a good life and make a lot of money. Capricorn usually is the type to get that promotion or become manager or CEO—because they work for it. They literally will work themselves from the bottom to the top. They like nice things and will go after them. In love, they want someone they can rely on. Someone who will always be there. Capricorn is a long-term relationship sign. They are looking for a partner they can ride through life with. Steady, capable and caring, Capricorns make excellent partners. This is the time to be honest about what you really want. Don’t be boring, express your feelings. Take time for yourself and find a safe haven to relax. At the root you are pretty simple so welcome more complicated things into your life.
Aquarius (January 20-Feb 18)
I have this running joke that in this sign, there is a “Jennifer Aniston” complex, meaning that Aquarius can often find love later in life. This isn’t true for all Aquarius people but it is a known fact that Aquarius “thinks” more about love than they “feel” it. This is why it can be hard for Aquarius to find love in their earlier years. Also, Aquarius is sometimes emotionally challenged and has a hard time connecting with people on an emotional level. Aquarius can be aloof and need space. Though friendliness is their key zodiac trait, and they love to have a lot of friends. They love adventures and planning them. Aquarius isn’t really a chill sign. They are more of an out and about sign. Aquarius is the weirdo of the zodiac, which isn’t an insult it just means they are eccentric. This is a good time for Aquarius to continue with the chapter they just opened and see where it takes them. Aquarius is also the genius of the zodiac, which means a lot of very bright and intelligent people are born Aquarius. Aquarius usually has their eyes set on achieving more and more. They are unconventional about marriage. In fact, I know an Aquarius mommy who had her baby with her love and they didn’t get married. Aquarius doesn’t always do things the way society claims they are “suppose” to be, they follow their own compass. Regardless, whatever you are up to, ensure that you take some time for yourself. Even if that means going back to work or school. Aquarius needs something that is just for them.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
Pisces is the last sign in the zodiac, which they are actually all the signs in one. You never know what you are going to get. Just like the symbol, The Fish, there are plenty of different kinds. Some are a total catch; others you’ll want to throw back. A true Pisces is very compassionate, they are kind, sweet and care about people’s feelings. They are generous to a fault. Pisces doesn’t always see how great they are. They doubt themselves and get overwhelmed by feelings. This is the sensitive, intuitive sign that has physic energy. Pisces can usually finish your sentences or will know what you’re going to say before you say it. They are highly emotional and just want love. The way love is meant to go in their heads, but it often doesn’t go their way. Either way, Pisces has a lot of love to give and they need to meet the right person to give it to. Now is the time to stop going with the flow. Switch it. Throw something different down on the table. You might think you are good at games in love, but you suck at them and are always so obvious. If you’re in a bad mood or mad about something it will show. Pisces is simply too honest of a sign. It’s important that they figure out what they want, when they want it and set the bar high. It’s okay to walk away if something is missing, you deserve the full deal. Don’t swim to red flags, let them be a learning lesson to you, as in never again will you go down that road. Be confident. Don’t stutter. Don’t hold back, just be you. The person who is going to love you is going to love you for exactly who you are. If you’re holding back feelings or not getting what you want, don’t compromise. Also, don’t let people do things to you that cross your comfort zone. You’re growing up, ever so surely and you are realizing a lot of things. Listen to yourself, a Pisces gut is seldom wrong.
