At the beginning of every month I read my friend’s horoscopes and send them a little synopsis of their monthly happenings. While some may find this silly, I find it a great excuse — not that I need one — for my friends and I to talk about our love and work lives. While reading this month’s horoscopes, I found a common thread — August 26th a.k.a. the luckiest day of the year. According to Susan Miller — my online astrology guru — on Wednesday the 26th, the Sun and Jupiter, the giver of “gifts and luck,” meet in Virgo to make your wildest dreams come true. Okay, so maybe not your wildest dreams, but this planetary alignment is supposed to give you luck in your career, finances, health, and last but not least, true love. While this may sound too good to be true, Miller does say that we have to put in some work to reap the benefits of this astrological holiday. To see how you can capitilize on this day of good fortune, scroll down to find out what the stars have planned for you and your wardrobe.
