You're usually the life of the party, but you're going to have less capacity for small talk and surface-level chitchat than usual, Leo. That's OK — just forego any major social events in favor of quality time with your closest confidants instead. You'll be able to open up and get real in the way that you need in order to sift through your existential feelings.

Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)

You're in the mood to stay home and relax, so invite a close friend or two over to your place for drinks and snacks instead of hitting the town. It's a great opportunity to connect and bond in a way that's hard to do when you're hitting a nonstop flow of social events.

You can still live it up in your social life without breaking the bank.

Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
