Scope it Out is an original A Plus Lifestyle series: Each month, we take a lighthearted approach to horoscopes, and provide lifestyle advice based on each zodiac sign to maximize the positivity in your month.
While science may not be on the side of astrology, that doesn't mean we can't have a little fun imagining our futures are guided by the stars, because why not? After all, such predictions often end up becoming self-fulfilling prophecies, and this doesn't make their effect on our reality any less impactful.
Riding that wave, we've decided to take cues from the cosmos to give you some inspiration on things you can treat yourself with this month to get into the groove. Whether it's a special dress to boost your confidence and help you meet that special someone, or some running shoes to help get those endorphins pumping, there are lots of little things you can do to improve your lifestyle this month.
Scroll through this sign-by-sign guide for lifestyle tips based on your sign:
Astrology King says: "You should feel beautiful and your friendly aura will attract beautiful people and things. An excellent time for giving and receiving love and affection, spending time with loved ones and socializing with friends. This is the ideal time for dating, buying gifts and making extra cash."
We recommend: Sounds like you'll be seeing everything through proverbial rose-colored glasses this month, so why not get literal about it? Try some 60s-inspired rose-tinted shades, and some pink comfy shoes to take longs walks with all the new people you'll meet. And if you're of age to go to prom this year, try a floral print dress to accentuate your friendly aura. Try a new wallet for all that extra cash you'll apparently be banking this month, too.
Astrology.com says: "You love tasty food on the 30th, but your eyes could be bigger than your stomach. If you don't want to trade in the bag of chips for some celery, at least get some exercise!"
We recommend: It's totally cool to indulge in all the yummy treats you want this month, so long as you balance it out with some healthy lifestyle choices like a daily yoga practice. Try out some yoga pants and get a mat so you can take part in a class, or just follow instructions from a YouTube tutorial at home. Running shoes are always good to have on hand too in case you feel like picking up the pace.
Astrology.com says: "Although you thrive on routine, you love variety on the 3rd and 4th. Try cooking a new dish or going to a new restaurant to celebrate your newfound sense of adventure."
We recommend: Since you're trying different things this month, you might as well test out some new cookbooks that offer healthy recipes with lots of fruits and/or greens. Get a blender, so you can make your friends happy with smoothy creations, perfect for the warm weather.
Maria DeSimone at Tarot.com says: "If you're thinking about going back to school to pursue an advanced degree or obtain a license or certification, act after the New Moon on June 4. This lunation will help support your intentions for an advanced education in a remarkable way."
We recommend: To get excited for school, treat yourself to a new backpack, notebook, and, of course, some pens. Once you get into the thick of your classes, you'll probably be having some late study nights, and a favorite coffee mug with a fresh brew is always a good motivator to help you get through those long hours.
Maria DeSimone at Tarot.com says: "There is a strong possibility that any investment you make now will profit, thanks to Venus also being in this area of your chart until June 17. Even if you don't make any new investments, you might receive a generous bonus, royalty, or commission check. Finally, if you're in negotiations for a settlement or insurance compensation, it's possible that you'll hear favorable news."
We recommend: It's your month to majorly splurge since the money will be rolling in. Of course you'll need a nice place to keep all that mullah, so get a fancy schmancy new purse and wallet. Sunglasses and ankle boots will tell the world you are a boss lady who can't be messed with. You probably won't be making any big investments like this for a while, but fortunately these well-made, timeless styles can last you years.
Maria DeSimone at Tarot.com says: "With a New Moon in your partnership sector on June 4, you and your mate can anticipate a fresh start in some area of your relationship. It's also possible that you'll be forming a new alliance either in your business or personal life. This connection will likely be quite favorable and harmonious since Venus will be in the same area of your chart until June 17. Enjoy the positive vibes that are flowing now in all relationship matters!"
We recommend: Traveling with your significant other is always a great way to bring some new life into your relationship. Get some suitcases and a comfy dress and sandals so you can be on your way. While you're traveling be sure to take along some business cards. Networking opportunities can arise wherever you are.
Maria DeSimone at Tarot.com says: "Expect positive changes at the workplace this month. After June 4, you'll be in a strong position to send out resumes and interview for a new job if you're looking to make a move. If you're happy at your current place of employment, you'll still see an opportunity. Perhaps relationships with your colleagues will improve, making you happier to come to work every day. Or, you might receive an assignment that you've been hoping to snag for quite some time. If you're a business owner, this will be a favorable month to hire new staff."
We recommend: Since this is your month to excel in business, you might as well pick up a nice pant suit. After all, you should always dress for the position you want. Get a watch so you can look classy and always be on time for meetings. Maybe even spruce up your resume by giving it some graphic design touches to really set it apart from the rest.
Maria DeSimone at Tarot.com says: "If you have any children there could be a lovely development for one of them, and you'll want to celebrate! Thinking about starting a family? This month could be the time something magical happens."
We recommend: Since it's a month to celebrate your kids, if you have 'em, get them some toys to fill up their toy basket. And when they grow out of these toys, they can still make for some nice decorative pieces around the house.
Astrology.com says: "The 26th and 27th are excellent days to try out a new look, but you might want to get a temporary tattoo or run your pic through a hairstyle generator before going for the real thing. That way you can change your mind, no harm no foul!"
We recommend: June is festival season, so why not choose some gold and silver temporary tattoos that'll look awesome reflecting in the sun while you dance the day away? Test out a multi-tone hairstyle and a fun hair accessory to make your festival experience that much more colorful.
Astrology.com says: "You give a lot of thought to your relatives on the 7th and 8th, and if there's a distant cousin or grandparent somewhere that you haven't talked to in a while, why not give them a call or shout-out on social media? Family is important."
We recommend: This is your month to be with your relatives. Buy some frames specific for family photos, and a new phone case that'll make you excited to pick up your phone and call your mom or dad. Get a fun family activity, like a game or a puzzle. It's always nice to bond over things like that don't involve a screen.
Astrology.com says: "Your sense of generosity is absolutely overwhelming on the 3rd and 4th. You'd actually give away the shirt off your back if you think there's someone who needs it more than you. Of course, you love to be thanked for your acts of charity, but if sleeping good at night is the only real payoff, then you're good with that, too."
We recommend: Shower your friends with gifts this month. Perhaps your BFF will appreciate a friendship bracelet that represents the unique connection you share with them. Some classic wrapping paper is always great to have in the house for all the presents you'll be doling out this month, too. And, even if no one thanks you for your generosity, you'll be happy to sleep sound at night on some new bedding that looks like a galaxy.
Astrology.com says: "The 11th, 12th, and 13th are good days to analyze and evaluate things, and there really is no such thing as overthinking. Look at all of the tiny details and read through all of the fine print to be sure you've got all your bases covered. "
We recommend: This month will be all about introspection and observations. Get some new glasses and maybe even a magnifying glass so you can pay close attention to the details in the world around you. A new journal will help prompt you to write your thoughts and observations down. Having plants in the house, or around you, is also great for inspiration and can give the space some tranquility to help you really think.
And with that, make June your best month yet.
