Impulsive Aries is a classic idea person. She’s always coming up with brilliant plans, but her follow-up skills are less than stellar. Her vanity is littered with beauty products that never fulfilled their promises because she was onto the next gadget before they had a chance! She needs a magic wand to simply wave across her face for eternal youth and radiance. Until Tinkerbell moves in next door, LightStim for Wrinkles is the next best thing. A hand-held wand featuring a combination of amber, red and infrared LED light, this FDA-cleared device penetrates deep into her skin, energizing the cells responsible for producing collagen. In just a few weeks, she’ll have so much collagen going on that it will push pesky wrinkles right up and out. It’s even got an iPhone app to make the process simpler! Treat yourself to a rejuvenated epidermis at www.lightstim.com.

Luxury-loving Taurus is always at her best when she feels pretty from head to toe. In the right shoes, she can conquer the world. Add a fabulous hairstyle and universe, watch out! Keeping her mane amazing without personally paying her stylist’s rent every month is a challenge, so the Amika 4P Interchangeable Barrel Curler Set is her beauty arsenal’s MVP. A swivel-corded curling wand with adjustable temperature and four clip-free ceramic-fused tourmaline barrels ensure that she’ll never run out of options for bouncy, healthy, easy-to-create styles. Bonus: it’s wired for dual voltage, making world domination even simpler! Invest in your own tress taming supertool at www.Sephora.com.

Quirky Gemini is a total gadget girl. Anything that can connect her with the world in 10 different ways at once is a must-have. Staying on the cutting edge is an expensive endeavor, though, so she needs to find ways to make what she’s already got feel fresh and new. Funky cases and skins work, but even they can add up quickly. Her quick, easy and budget-thrilling solution: Bubble Buttons! These stylish raised stickers are designed to cover the home screen/menu button on her iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. With insanely economical theme packs like Hipster, Prints and Mustache, she can go from goofy to ironic and back again in seconds. Snazz up your smartstuff at www.bubblebuttons.com, www.amazon.com and Urban Outfitters.

Traditional Cancer is a bit of a reluctant technophobe. She loves innovation and the look of sleek, sophisticated technology, but the thought of having a conversation on a cold, flat slab of glass and metal makes her yearn for the days of land lines and big, comfy handsets. Sadly, she can’t take a land line on the road, but Native Union has the answer to her handset dreams! The retro-inspired POP Phone easily plugs into smartphones, laptops or tablets through an audio jack or syncs wirelessly via Bluetooth™ technology. With a variety of colors and patterns available, she’ll love looking at it almost as much as cozying up to it. Add a little fun to your phone at www.NativeUnion.com.

Confident Leo knows she’s stunning and prides herself on looking eternally youthful. As the years go by, though, effortless perfection takes more and more work, so anything that will help to keep her face lifted and lovely is welcome. BMR Facial Toner does that and more! All she has to do is wear this comfy, innovative, FDA-cleared device for 20 minutes a day, five days a week for 12 weeks each while it gently stimulates her facial muscles right back to their 20’s tautness and that’s one facelift avoided. With all that money and down time saved, she can hit the town and rake in the compliments! Lighten up your looks at www.nordstrom.com and www.neimanmarcus.com.

Analytical Virgo takes her health and appearance very seriously. There’s always a new diet book or workout program to be studied, new moves to learn and superfoods to taste. No matter how much effort she puts in, though, keeping her muscles taut and toned takes more time and energy than she can spare! That’s where the BMR Lift Series has her covered. Used in conjunction with any beauty regimen she chooses, this series of arm, bottom and tummy lifts uses clinically proven Electrical Muscle Stimulation (EMS) technology to contract and relax her muscles, firming and toning while she gets on with her day. Talk about a hands-on personal trainer! Give your body a boost at Neiman Marcus stores and www.neimanmarcus.com.

Hospitable Libra loves to welcome friends and family to her home. Whether for a night or a week, there always seems to be somebody warming her sofa. On days when she can’t stay home to keep her guests entertained, there’s always a PLAY Video Memo player waiting on her fridge to brighten their morning. This adorable pocket-sized device records up to three minutes of video so she can tell them where to find every yummy breakfast treat in her kitchen and exactly how to work the TV remote with a smile and a personal touch that a sticky note just can’t offer. Keep your loved ones warm and fuzzy at www.NativeUnion.com.

Passionate Scorpio has the highest libido of all the zodiac signs. She is also fiercely independent and ambitious, which means she’s far more likely to spend her time pursuing lofty career goals than romantic relationships. This often results in equal parts success and frustration! Her ideal way to discreetly relieve one without jeopardizing the other: Dear John by Pure Romance. Cleverly masquerading as a sparkly pink, functioning pen, this one-of-a-kind … intimate massager provides pleasure on the go without raising a single eyebrow if it falls out of her purse. With a companion this fulfilling, commitment can wait! Give yourself a pretty little thrill at www.pureromance.com.

Kind-hearted Sagittarius sees the world as a playground to be explored and enjoyed. She’s always thinking of new places to go, things to see and way in which she can enjoy it all without leaving anything more than positive vibes in her wake. Whether she’s gazing at a sunrise from the front porch or trekking through the Andes at dusk, her bobble hot and bobble iced bottles are always along for the ride. Reusable, sustainable and made of durable, BPA-free Tritan plastic, both are perfectly portable and exactly what she needs to stay hydrated and energized without an ounce of waste to be found. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that they’re cute! Find out where to buy your liquids a happy new home at www.waterbobble.com.

Curious Aquarius loves anything with a story to tell. Whether it’s a new friend who’s traveled the world or a painting that reveals something new each time she encounters it, the more intriguing something is the more it attracts her. Her newest fascination: Sprout Watches! Made of beautifully sustainable materials such as cork and bamboo in a variety of styles and colors, the collection features mother-of-pearl and even conflict-free diamonds.

Compassionate Pisces is the quintessential shoulder for her friends to cry on. She’s a terrific listener and always has just the right nugget of wisdom to make them feel better after a crisis. No matter how quickly she turns others’ frowns upside down, all that sadness can really mess with her own moods and worry lines come with the territory. That’s why she keeps a standing appointment with her Clarisonic Opal. A palm-sized sonic infusion device, the Opal maximizes her skin’s absorption of their luxurious Anti-Aging Sea Serum to keep eye, lip, brow and forehead lines at bay. 30 seconds a day is all it takes to keep her skin and her psyche happy and healthy!
