How it works: Look below for your favorite type(s) of candy to find out what the sweet stuff is forecasting for your future! At Candyality, you really are what you eat!

(Pixie Sticks, Runts, Fruit Blast…)
You’re such a go-getter, but you deserve a break. Mercury goes into retrograde on the 12th, and you should go into chill mode at the same time. Hit snooze on your alarm clock this week and focus on relaxation.

(Sour Belts, Worms, Poppers, Balls…)
With two eclipses and Mercury in retrograde, this August is going to be chaotic–but we know you enjoy the thrill of the unknown so we’re sure you’re loving the ride. We suggest that you keep being your spontaneous self and see where it takes you.

(Jelly Belly, Gumdrops, Skittles…)
The planets have aligned this month to bring you lots of luck, so don’t be afraid to take a chance this month because it will probably work out in your favor. Luck is on your side, but try not to take advantage of your winning streak or you might accidentally attract negative karma.

(Haribo Raspberries, French Burnt Peanuts, Peanut M & M’s…)
It’s eclipse season and it’s causing an intense competitive energy to brew inside you. Put those feelings of restlessness to good use by channeling them into sports or upping your performance at work. Don’t forget to reward your productivity with a bag of your favorite crunchy candies!

(Cotton Candy, Taffy, Airheads…)
A lunar eclipse on the 7th will put an emphasis on your love life that will set the tone for the rest of August. Romantic relationships will be your top priority this month, but don’t forget to make time for your platonic relationships as well. Strike a balance between love and friendship and you’ll be in for a month of intense connections.

(Gummy Bears, Swedish Fish, Bubble Gum…)
The first half of August is smooth sailing for you, but beware of the storm brewing around the 15th. Power struggles and jealousy are on the horizon, so keep your guard up as we enter the second half of the month. You’re a tough cookie so we know you’ll be fine.

(Lemon Drops, Jawbreakers, Peppermints…)
You’re usually pretty on top of things, but expect a heavy dose of chaos and miscommunication around the 12th when Mercury goes into retrograde. This is not a good time to embark on any new projects, so just focus on the task at hand until retrograde passes.

(Red, Black, Good & Plenty…)
Usually retrograde is a time to avoid communication, but this time around Mercury is urging you to reconnect with your partner in a meaningful way. This retrograde will strengthen your personal relationships if you make an effort to engage with your loved ones in a significant way.

(Anything Covered in Dark Chocolate…)
We know you have a dark side, and this Mercury retrograde will put an emphasis on your more mystic qualities. Put on your favorite dark shades and embrace your mysterious tendencies.

(Anything Covered in Milk Chocolate…)
Mercury retrograde is a bad time for making big commitments or business decisions, so try to avoid setting important plans this month. Instead, go with the flow and let things happen organically–you’ll feel less stressed and you’ll be less likely to fall victim to the woes of retrograde.

(Anything Covered in White Chocolate…)
The stars are telling you to put yourself out there this month, and we advise you to listen. This month is full of opportunities for you to be noticed, and we know that a trend-setter like you loves to be seen! Don’t say no to anything this month and you’ll find yourself feeling at home in the spotlight.

(Tootsie Rolls, Mary Janes, Bit O Honey…)
Mercury in retrograde is making you feel super nostalgic this month. Take a stroll down memory lane and do the things that remind you of happier times–perhaps that means a trip to the candy store to stock up on your favorite retro treats!

Hello FREAK! Your life is always sugar coated and sweet. Congrats you MANIAC on being so connected to your confections that you make the world taste good.
