Optimistic Aries is at her best this time of year. There’s nothing like summer sunshine to charge up her soul and set her aglow! The sun can’t shine every day, though, so she’s always looking for backup sources of radiance. This year, all she needs to achieve daily supernova status is her Blue Topaz Gold Vermeil Stud Earrings from Blue Nile. These oval-shaped stunners are fresh and feminine, with enough dazzling color and sparkle to render the weather irrelevant! Luminize yourself at www.bluenile.com.

Demure Taurus has a love - hate relationship with jewelry. She loves modern, edgy designs, but the idea of actually wearing them makes her cringe! Classics with a twist are a much better fit for her style, so her Signature Initial Necklace from Isabelle Grace Jewelry is a new summer staple. Featuring a brushed silver disc with her stamped initial accented in 22k gold and a pretty gemstone charm on a delicate silver or goldfill cable chain, her handmade piece is as refined and unique as her personality.

Fun-loving Gemini lives for adventure. It could be anything, from a new hiking trail to an impromptu weekend in Vegas! Whatever comes her way, though, she’s always ready to jump right in. Readiness requires organization, though, so she relies on her Myra iPhone 5 case from MAPi to keep her essentials in check. This sleek, durable leather all-in-one wallet-style case has pockets for her cash, credit cards and identification and a design that gives her full access to every function on her phone while protecting it from any danger her shenanigans might toss its way.

Soft-spoken Cancer can usually be found trying to blend into her surroundings. She loves the comfort and safety of anonymity and rarely says, does or wears anything that might draw attention. When she has no choice but to step into the spotlight, though, she goes all the way! Fabulous dress, perfect hair and her favorite accessory: her gorgeous silk evening clutch bag from Light in the Box. With silver scalloped cage-style hardware and a twinkly Austrian crystal clasp, it has a fun, fresh look that’s both retro and modern. It’s also the perfect size for conversation starter notes! Not that she needs them. Her admirers will take care of the introductions. Choose your own lipstick-toting work of art at www.LightintheBox.com.

Analytical Leo often finds herself conflicted. She loves electronics and spends more time on her iPhone every day than she does sleeping at night! She also cares deeply about the environment and struggles with reducing her carbon footprint while increasing her gadget collection. One very cool, footprint-reducing thing she can do: protect her beloved iPhone with the Nite Ize BioCase. Soft and flexible yet surprisingly durable, the 4, 4S and 5-compatible BioCase is made of organic materials and comes in simple, 100% post-consumer recycled paperboard packaging printed with non-toxic ink.

Independent Virgo is a quintessential one-woman band. Every day is met with thorough analysis to ensure optimal success in all of her solo endeavors. Pursuit of that degree of perfection can be lonely and exhausting, though, and a few words of encouragement now and then could really prop her up. Asking friends for help just isn’t her style, so she relies on her Encouragement Bracelets from Alef Bet by Paula. These delicate sterling silver and nylon (red or black) bracelets are both beautiful and supportive, brightly reminding her to “Hang Tight” and that “It’s All Good” every time she glances at her wrists.

Easygoing Libra is the diplomat of the zodiac. Peace and harmony are essential to her happiness, so she protects them by solving every problem and squashing every conflict that ventures into her orbit. All that universe balancing can really wear a girl down so, when she’s feeling less-than-perky, she grabs her Derek Cardigan 7005 Black sunglasses from Coastal.com. Comfy and cool, these updated classic cat-eye glasses with spring hinges and grey polarized lenses soften her view and freshen her look instantly.

Responsible Capricorn rarely makes a move without considering its far reaching effects. Would money spent on a sun-drenched vacation or a pretty new handbag be better spent adding solar panels to her home and planting trees for future generations? Being so practical can leave her feeling righteous, but blah, so her mood brightening compromise treat is the Sunshine Bag by Pelcor. Made of cheerfully colored canvas and trimmed with unique, waterproof cork skin, this perfectly sized drawstring tote makes her feel like she’s strolling along a tropical beach AND keeping the environment all warm and fuzzy!
