This month Taurus needs to be cautious and do some serious thinking in the love department. Until fall, it’s best to focus on being with people you’re close to but not romantically involved with.

The emotional and loving nature of Cancer will heighten this month as Venus, the planet of love, will enter Cancer and increase your power of seduction and charm. Surround yourself with lilies, the flower most associated with your sign. They’ll certainly help in those endeavors and keep you feeling both cheery and oh-so-affectionate. Spritz on LiLi Eau de Parfum by Joots. This new fragrance was created for the woman who appreciates beauty in everything that surrounds her. Opening notes of white peach and freesia move on to heart notes of the lushest green petals, jasmine, and of course, lily, which remain sparkly and fresh. This isn’t your grandma’s floral. LiLi is light and airy, and fortunately doesn’t grow weak. The award nominated bottle features a frosted glass flacon with a lady rising out of a lily petal.

Whether it’s a love relationship, a business venture or a beauty product, she wants perfection and will work nonstop to achieve it.

Water-loving Aquarius, rejoice! Jupiter enters your house mid month and will stay around for a full year, infusing generosity and high energy into your relationships. Additionally there’s great potential for happiness and fulfillment because lovebug Venus also appears later this month. Hmm… if you’re single and in a long-term relationship, perhaps that means someone’s getting ready to put a ring on it? Whether that’s true or not, the beauty lover in you wants to make sure your nails always look gorgeous with the Plie Wand by Julep. This “how-did-I-ever-live-without-it?” applicator makes at-home nail polishing ridiculously easy and will deliver salon results. The ergonomically designed long wand renders it easier to control the brush, and for the mess creating non-dominant hand, the wand twists to a 90-degree angle. This genius swivel is a game changer and appeals to your independent nature as you boast of a professional looking mani you’ve done yourself. The Plie Wand kit also comes with an overcap to fit a variety or polish bottle caps, and a creativity kit that includes a dotting wand and a long thin brush for accuracy in making lines and stripes.
