This month is all about focusing on your love life—whether you’re in a relationship or not. If you're currently experiencing turbulence with a significant other, surprise him by taking this time to focus on your look. Light shades work in your favor this month­. Try a nude mani for a sexy and sophisticated look.

You might be enduring money issues right now, but the good news is it’s not for long. Your financial situation improves significantly this month, but in the mean time cutting expenses is your best bet. Skip the spa visits and give yourself weekly at-home facials instead. Your skin (and wallet) will thank you.

Finding new ways to stand out this month inspires opportunities in a creative field at work. This is your defining moment—don’t miss your chance to show others how inventive you are and set yourself apart from the crowd. What better way to do that than with a new hair color? If you really want to make a statement, try a shade of green.

You are an avid planner but crossing tasks off your to-do list doesn’t come as naturally for you. This is your time to bring in the big guns and stay on track. Surround yourself with new, motivated people. This month, paint your nails with an orange polish–every time you look down at the power color, remind yourself of what you need to do.

You are currently at a crossroads between your work and play lives. Break old, bad habits like staying out too late and instead focus on your professional life. This decision could come in tandem with a broken relationship—either a friendship or with a significant other. Trying out the new tortoiseshell hair trend (a new take on ombre) is the perfect way to show your professional side at work without looking too staid.

Opportunities are coming your way, and there is no better time for you to stay strong and be brave. Don’t be afraid to take risks in your professional life and in your beauty routine. This month, try a new cat eye­–it shows confidence and matches your bold, go-getter attitude.

You will be experiencing a unique new start this month in love or in your career. Don’t rush into anything too quickly. Instead, take time to think about your direction with a girls’ weekend. Travel to a warm climate, sip margaritas poolside (your symbol is water after all) and indulge in a relaxing mani-pedi. Pack silver or blue polishes­–these are your power colors.

This month will send you on a roller coaster ride of unforgettable, wonderful and unusual events. Your skin will likely experience breakouts due to the influx of emotions. Not to worry–just make sure to be extra good about washing your face before bed every night and trade your heavy foundation for a BB cream. The no-makeup look is in anyway.

This month is all about finding yourself and breaking down barriers. You will soon feel free of burdens and boundaries. Don’t be afraid of the unknown: Break out of your shell with a beauty update. Try a new cut or color or give eyelash extensions a go–any of the above are bound to pay off.

You are known for being a hard worker and a passionate person, and your boss is impressed. This month, take extra initiative and let your charisma shine. Give your look a notice-me update by finding a new shade of red lipstick­–it’s professional and classic.

March is a tough month for love for you–your partner is feeling neglected, and it may have something to do with your success at work. Emotions are running high right now, but it will all blow over. Be patient in all aspects of your life (especially your beauty routine), and choose your words carefully. Whether you are in a relationship or not, go the extra mile with your makeup. Try a sexy contour–it’ll boost your confidence when you need it most.

You are feeling extra sensitive this month. The tiniest things will send you over the edge. Book some much-needed girl time, and take this opportunity to unwind and get your spirits up. In the meantime, double up on the waterproof mascara–waterworks are likely.
