English term or phrase: raid
"If you meet a dashing stranger who wants to whisk you to Paris in June, and your June goal was to organize your desk, well, raid Office Depot next month. Most likely, one of your biggest goals is to have an exciting life. The sojourn in Paris will keep you on the right path for that."

agree  NancyLynn: Not sure about the horoscope nonsense; it might be targeted marketing (Cosmo mag, etc.) but yes, get yourself to OD and shop till you drop
