Hello, summer. We’ve been waiting for you. 

It’s been too long since we’ve been able to embrace your sunny nature to its full potential, but it’s safe to say we will never take you for granted again. Temperatures are rising and the mood is exuberant. With both Mars, Planet of Action & Desire, and Venus, Planet of Love spending most of July in Leo, hot girl summer may officially commence. 

As we begin summer with Cancer season in full swing, it’s time to take time for you, especially during the dark new moon in Cancer on July 9th. Turn on that OOO message ASAP and head to the beach, or plan a girls’ trip for some collective rest and relaxation. You deserve it. 

Being a wallflower is so 2019. Don’t be surprised by a sudden burst of main character energy on July 12th as our two passion planets Venus and Mars conjunct one another. Forget about July 4th, because these are the fireworks you’ve been waiting for. Ask out your crush. Apply to that dream job. Whatever trend has been tempting you, now is the time to take it for a spin. You’d look great in neon.

Leo season will rule the summer, beginning on July 22nd and running all the way ‘til August 23rd. Your creative juices will be flowing with no sign of slowing down, especially as the full moon in Aquarius on July 23rd pushes your rebellious spirit to its peak. A second full moon in Aquarius on August 22nd will bring a glowing, cheerful energy to gently welcome the start of Virgo season. 

With these unprecedented levels of positivity and fearlessness, there’s no holding back. It’s time for pure style entropy. What fashion risk is written in the stars for you? 

Water Signs

Pisces, Scorpio & Cancer

More than any other signs, enjoy this time as a personal creative renaissance. Lean into the self-care rituals you spent all of 2020 perfecting, building confidence in the top half of the summer. Prepare for a burst of inspiration, and allow your style to follow suit. Embrace your most artistic self with a fresh take on the classic maxi dress, or pair a midriff-baring crop top with a long skirt in an eye-catching print. 

Fire Signs

Aries, Leo & Sagittarius

It’s always been about you (you know what we mean). That’s not changing anytime soon. As the stars bring a wave of confidence and creativity to all the signs, it’s time for you to push the envelope even further. You’re the hot girl summer blueprint, and even you can take it to the next level. Pause for a moment to breathe at the beginning of the summer, because once Leo season comes knocking, so will the professional and social opportunities that you have been manifesting. Is there such a thing as being too popular? No, we didn’t think so. Amp up your sex appeal with slinky separates and delicate jewelry that put all the focus on the real star of the show: you. 

Air Signs

Gemini, Libra & Aquarius

If one thing is certain, it’s that you love to keep things interesting. The full moon in Aquarius on July 22nd will have your rebellious instincts kicking in, ready to throw caution to the wind and follow your wildest impulses. Bring on the whimsical and the weird. Fresh ideas and ambitions will lead you down the path of success, and there’s no need to rush it. Everything will happen at its own pace, so why not have fun with style as you go? Push your sartorial choices further than ever before. Forget the old, tired rule of taking off one accessory before leaving the house. Now, add two more. Pick a frock with more ruffles, a shorter hem, bigger sleeves. Might we interest you in a crop top? Whatever you choose, turn up the volume to the max. 

Earth Signs  

Taurus, Virgo & Capricorn

You always keep it real, and there’s no reason to change that now. Be gentle with yourself and those around you as we enter Leo season, and reap the rewards later on. A boost of confidence is on its way to reassure you in your ambitions; keep your mindset light and carefree, and know that everything will work out in the end. You’ve always known the value of luxury and true classics, but there’s always opportunity to loosen the reins. Use this time to try on an edgier look without losing your innate chicness. Show off a little (or a lot) more leg with a mini dress that goes from high tea to party, or swap precious ruffles for a more avant garde option. Classic doesn’t mean boring.
