Rue Horoscopes: November

Get a glimpse into your stylish future – minus the crystal ball

We may not be experts on astrology or the moon’s position, but we do know style alignment. And in forecasting the next month, here’s what’s in store for you.

Scorpio
Sure, it’s always easier to react once your emotions have kicked in (as proven by your utter lust for that elbow-patched corduroy blazer that’s now in your closet). But sometimes it’s better to weigh decisions based on logic rather than feelings. For example, yes, supple suede boots are needed in 3 colors: for home, office, and your best friend’s house.

Sagittarius
Nobody likes the feeling of being unprepared. The best counter attack? Quell all gift-giving worries with a closet stacked with what-if gifts that cover everyone from the hostess to the dog next door. Besides, anything left unused by the end of the season becomes yours by default.

Capricorn
It’s a fact: friends should be able to tell one another the bitter truth. So be wary of surrounding yourself with people that are too sensitive (sniffling while watching The Notebook doesn’t count). If your bestie can’t accept that her choice of wide-leg pants aren’t the most flattering – especially when flares look like they were made for her – it’s time to toughen her up.

Aquarius
It’s no secret that things are better in groups: parties, bangles, après-ski drinks. But sometimes, you crave a little alone time. Our advice? Add some cozy touches to your bathroom (scented candles and some decorative flourishes are a must), grab a good book, and lounge in the bathtub until you’re pruney.

Pisces
That urge to add some creativity into your professional life is becoming unbearable. Sigh. But until that looming promotion gives you creative license, try mixing inspiring fashion into your workwear. Color and pattern are everything, so pop in a pocket square (yes, that means you, ladies), rock a bright pump, or spice things up with a confidence-boosting red lip.

Aries
You’re a big self-motivator – your high-strung nerves alone are proof of that. But in the spirit of this hearth-loving season, you deserve a break. First up: Create your own sanctuary. We’re talking layer the couches with textured throws, pile on the pillows, and light a holly-berry scented candle (or three).

Rue Horoscopes: October

Get a glimpse into your stylish future – minus the crystal ball

We may not be experts on astrology or the moon’s position, but we do know style alignment. And in forecasting the next month, here’s what’s in store for you.

Libra
“Yes” can be a beautiful thing – especially when it results in a cashmere sweater in every color – but it may mean you’re overextending yourself. Our advice? Learn to say no. No to leggings as pants, ill-tailored suits, and juice-only diets. With all that money (and closet space) you save, you’ll have enough to double-up on the good stuff.

Scorpio
There’s been a change recently, and we’re not just talking about the seasons. You’ve had trouble showing empathy (go on, admit it), but fear not, there’s a quick fix for this conundrum. Try on a new trend – a pair of to-die-for, over-the-knee boots might be just the thing. After all, finding common ground is all about putting yourself in someone else’s shoes.

Sagittarius
Spoiler alert: you take yourself too seriously. So you have strict orders this month: Don your most fun-loving ensemble (a lived-in, oversized sweater and prairie boots will do nicely) and go to the circus, pick apples, or jump on a hayride. No matter what you do, just make sure you’re smiling (and not thinking about work).

Capricorn
There’s one sure way to guarantee you’re feeling supported and successful (and it has nothing to do with undergarments). ‘Tis the season for cinnamon and everything pumpkin-spice-latte, so infuse your home with that same cozy sentiment by adding a rich chocolate throw, harvest-scented candles, and a centerpiece featuring the season’s favorite gourd.

Aquarius
Indecision is totally normal this time of year (burgundy or nude lip?). But there’s an exercise to help enhance your decision-making skills. Step 1: weigh pros and cons – burgundy lips are huge this season. Step 2: assess the facts – nude lips require far less re-application. Step 3: identify winner – who needs statement accessories when you have bold, burgundy, look-at-me lips?

Rue Horoscopes: September

We may not be experts on astrology or the moon’s position, but we do know style alignment. And in forecasting the next month, here’s what’s in store for you.

Virgo
Rational, you may be (yes, it does make sense to pay off that credit card bill in full before racking it up again), but emotional, you are not. Step out of your realm of comfort and try out a trend that’s a little scary to you. Unsure about rocking a headpiece? Give it shot. Too shy for a bold brocade print? Wear it with a neutral. You may uncover a new signature look.

Libra
Let’s face it, your mood is all over the place right now. Counteract those unstable emotions with a home space that’s uniquely you. Be it a window seat that demands a good book or a living room that relaxes you upon entry; find and design a sanctuary for yourself. If that doesn’t work, make some tea, climb into bed, and watch Sixteen Candles on repeat.

Scorpio
You know those futuristic dreams you’ve been having (think less sci-fi and more future owner of a Versace gown)? Now, more than ever, they’re likely to become reality. No matter how far-fetched they may seem, keep your practical sights set on your goals and good things will happen. And if they don’t, there’s always pre-loved vintage.

August Style Forecast: Rue Horoscopes

We may not be experts on astrology or the moon’s position, but we do know style alignment. And in forecasting the next month, here’s what’s in store for you.

Aries
That empty feeling you’ve been harboring? Don’t over-think it. It’s probably just your inner need for an array of arm candy. Experiment with mixing metals and textures – we’re talking woven rose gold, meets shiny silver, meets striking pops of neon. Not helping? Consult the candy aisle.

Taurus
Go ahead, plow through those tasks you’ve been avoiding like the plague — like finally pulling the trigger on that fringe handbag. The payoff is so much more rewarding than the unease of an unfinished project (or void in your closet).

Gemini
Mile-a-minute? It’s just your style. So keep yourself in check with a new statement watch, a day on an empty beach, or a much-deserved hot fudge sundae. Little indulgences will keep you relaxed during even the busiest of weeks.
