Make this the BEST summer of your life!
"In the summertime when the weather is hot, you can stretch right up and touch the sky." This song and countless others have all been written as an ode to the season with the longest days and shortest nights, Summer.
Warm weather, sun dresses, cool ocean breezes, sand between your toes, sun-kissed skin, and a cold margarita in your hand are just a few of the best parts of summer — according to myself.
Everyone has certain activities they love or hate to do in the summer.
Find your zodiac to see how you can make the most of your summer!
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Make this your summer of comfort and peace by finding your inner Zen at a meditation retreat. Chill out for the weekend or the week to find some peace and quiet, or take a couple days and go to a yoga festival. You definitely wont regret it.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Get in touch with nature by creating your ultimate back yard oasis, complete with the PERFECT herb garden (so you can cook ALL summer long!) Because who doesn't love a summer cookout with a nice potato salad topped with fresh chives from the garden?
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Give your nervous self a break and instead of spending money on hotel, airfare, food, and activities — plan a staycation. Discover new and exciting things about your own town. You might be surprised at all there is to do right at home (without having to deal with the stress of overextending your finances).
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Let your imagination and creativity flow by building your own art studio. Whether it be separate from your house, or a special place inside you decide to dedicate to your craft, take the time — while it's still hot and muggy outside — to throw yourself into your passions. Explore all that you are capable of.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
Get ready to do one of your FAVORITE things ... get dolled up and head to your local theater to see some of the newest talent. There's no need to fly to NYC to see the shows on Broadway when the show will come to you.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Let your inner introvert shine and plan out which books you want to read in advance, and schedule time for yourself every night so you can dive in to your reading. The great thing about books is that they can go where ever you go. So whether you're traveling or lounging on the beach, don't forget to bring a good book.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
Hey social butterfly! Quench your thirst for human connection and host a HUGE summer bash with all of your favorite people. Heat up the barbeque, throw on some tunes and set up the sprinkler (hey, NO ONE outgrows a back yard sprinkler session!) You and Taylor Swift will be fighting for the title of best summer party thrower.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
Go on a cruise with a select few of your very-BEST friends. You won't feel overwhelmed with the thought of being around TOO many people, but it'll be nice to get away from the "real" world for a bit. So why not dedicate some of your time to the people you love most? With so many options, it's hard to pick just one, but it's important to make sure you choose the right one for your group.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
Quench that explorer thirst in you by buying the next Groupon trip you see and jetting off to another country for a while. There are some crazy-good deals on last-minute summer vacations, so why not just see where life takes you? You needed some time to yourself anyway. Decompress and be adventurous.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
For Capricorns, family time is a MUST, so dedicate some time every week to spending some quality time with your family. Plan day-long excursions at state parks or theme parks — something that will get you all out of the house and bonding. You WON'T regret it. These are the adventures that make for great stories and pictures.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
Instead of planning a vacation, use that time to immerse yourself in a helpful cause. Take a month to volunteer at your local homeless shelter or animal shelter, or better yet, create your OWN charity for a change. This time of the year people can get pretty focused on themselves, so put your talents to good use for a GREAT cause.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
It's been a tough year for Pisces, so take some time to yourself this summer and dive into what makes YOU happy. Start writing music or poetry again, or learn something new and creative (you KNOW you've always wanted to learn how to DJ!) Now's your chance to make your summer SHINE!
