Leo (July 23-August 22)
Fellow Leos Casey Affleck and Charlize Theron turn 40 this month. (Casey’s brother, Ben, is also a Leo, as is Sean Penn.) This continues to be a fabulous summer for you Lions, because fair Venus is in your sign for 16 weeks (most unusual), making you diplomatic, charming, and attractive to everyone. This is your hour.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
James D’Arcy turns 40 later this month. What’s more significant is that lucky Jupiter returns to Virgo to stay for an entire year! This fabulous blessing will not occur again until 2027, so make the most of it. Jupiter will bring luck and good fortune; but do get out of bed.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
This is the most popular month of the year for Librans, as Kate Winslet and Marion Cotillard (who isn’t turning 40 in Hollywood this month?!) will agree. Accept all invitations. Join classes, clubs, and associations. Artistic people will appeal. Share your dreams for the future with someone to get helpful feedback.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
This is the only month all year when the sun casts a flattering light on you from the top of your chart. You look sharp and capable to people in authority! Use these “smoke and mirrors” to advance your situation. Scorpio Dierks Bentley, who turns 40 this year, will do this, too.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
The movie The Rocky Horror Picture Show is 40 years old this year. (Time flies when you’re unconscious.) Get ready for action, because travel opportunities abound. Keep a packed bag by the door. Expect benefits from publishing, the media, medicine, the law and higher education because the world is your oyster!
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
This is a passionate, sexy month! It’s also a time when you will benefit from the wealth and resources of others. Use this to your advantage. Go for a mortgage or ask for a loan. Even Bradley Cooper will use this influence to improve his negotiations.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
Your focus is on partners and friends this month, because the sun is opposite your sign. Fear not: Your closest relationships have never been better! All is sweetness and light. Casual relationships might become committed. Fellow Aquarian Sara Gilbert turned 40 this year.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
Eva Longoria turned 40 on March 15 of this year. Like her, you’re focused on improving your job. You want to get better organized and run your life more efficiently. You’re so keen to have it all that you will buff your bod as well. These efforts will bring praise or a raise.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Your life is brimming with opportunities for vacations, social events, parties, sports, playful times with children and romance, romance, romance! (You really hit the jackpot this summer.) Even financial speculation is blessed. Aries Zach Braff turned 40 this year and is celebrating along with you.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Home and family are where you have excellent luck. Do everything to beautify your surroundings by redecorating or even relocating. (You love your creature comforts.) The sign of Taurus rules the throat, which is why you have a great voice. Just listen to singer Enrique Iglesias, who also turned 40 this year.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Fellow twins Russell Brand and Angelina Jolie turned 40 in 2015. This is a busy month filled with short trips, errands, and mucho conversation. You will read and write more and you will slowly start to notice how much beauty there is in your daily surroundings, as well as love and affection! Who knew?
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
“Show me the money!” (Jerry Maguire star Tom Cruise is a Cancer). However, Tobey Maguire turned 40 on June 27. All Cancers are focused on money and cash flow right now, and in most cases, a boost in earnings. This is why you’re buying beautiful treasures for yourself and loved ones. Ka-ching!
