Are you a shop-a-holic? Or a mall-a-phobic? Let the stars size up your shopping style: Back to school means back to the stores.
Leos love taking chances, going to dances, having romances-and stealing all the boys’ admiring glances! Your charisma is legendary… and so is your lion-size temper! Still, when you flash that sunny smile and clown it up, you’re the life of the party. In fact, it feels like a party just to be with you. You’re a magnet with that classy laugh, superb posture, and bodacious mane of hair!
Guess what: Your circle of friends is going to expand over the next year. New and old pals will revive your social life; join as many clubs and groups as you want for the best luck.
Aries (March 21 to April 20)
The decisive shopper. You like to zip in and out fast. Long lines and pals who take all day to decide drive you crazy. Shop alone at malls, where you can pop into small stores and make a speedy getaway.
Taurus (April 21 to May 21)
The quality shopper. You like to go to department stores, where you’d rather get a great pair of jeans than three cheap ones that fall to pieces in six ugly weeks! You shop slowly, carefully, and wisely.
Gemini (May 22 to June 21)
The perennial shopper. Boutiques, five and-tens, department stores, malls-you love them all. You like to hang out with friends, buy clever doodods, study the latest fashions-and then shop some more!
Cancer (June 22 to July 23)
The queen of shoppers. You love to shop at home–by raiding your mom’s closet! You love old clothes. And as a champion bargain finder, you have a sixth sense for finding fantastic clothes at sale prices.
Leo (July 24 to August 23)
The princess shopper. Saks, Bloomingdale’s, and the Neiman-Morcus catalog are Your Majesty’s favorites. You like the best, and you don’t mind returning items if they fail to please you, either!
Virgo (August 24 to September 23)
The nervous shopper. You loathe the tacky atmosphere in discount stores; you feel crawly because you think the clothes might be dirty. You like bargains but prefer liner stores: The hems stay in longer!
Libra (September 24 to October 23)
The true shop-a-holic. Shopping is an essential function for Librans, like eating. You were born to shop-anytime and everywhere. When you can’t shop, it’s time to call in the doctor.
Scorpio (October 24 to November 22)
The fussy shopper. You’re very sure of what you want, but you don’t often find it. Take a Libra along to help. Intense and emotional, you agonize over choices. You hate crowds and love discount outlets.
Sagittarius (November 23 to December 21)
The impulse shopper. You like a big sale, a deal, a bargain, auctions, outdoor flea markets, and ethnic and foreign shops. You already own 101 pairs of sweatpants; you snicker at designer labels.
Capricorn (December 22 to January 20)
The organized shopper. You pore over the paper searching for sales; when you find an item you like, you get two in different hues. You’re an extremist, too: It’s either the best or the cheapest for you!
Aquarius (January 21 to February 19)
The eccentric shopper. Thrift shops, secondhand stores, garage sales, army/navy stores, and pretty boutiques have the cowboy boots, odd hats, and wild stuff that you enjoy so much!
Pisces (February 20 to March 20)
The shoe shopper. Soon you will have 4,907 pairs of shoes in the closet, but it doesn’t hurt to look for more, eh? You like nice, quiet boutiques, too, but shopping solo is no fun. Bring a friend.
