Fiery Mars in Adventurous Sagittarius: Anything Goes!
This past Sunday, October 7, Mars entered the wanderlust sign of Sagittarius, a transit that represents one of the more restless positions for the tempestuous planet of war. Between now and November 16, Mars wants to run free, untethered to anything small, petty, or mundane -- all while firing up the sign of the Archer!
Physical outlets are crucial during this time, so if all else fails and you feel overwhelmingly pent up, take a brisk run around the block before you bite someone's head off! Anger can escalate quickly now, but as long as no one adds fuel to the fire, you can also burn through frustration more quickly than usual. Sagittarius is not known for being particularly patient or tactful, so expect plenty of blunt confrontations. And remember: If you can't take it, don't dish it out, because anything goes under this transit that infamously favors between-the-eyes honesty!

Break out the rubber gloves. A treasure eludes you, which may force you to search in some unlikely -- and perhaps undesirable places -- to find what you're looking for today. Don't give up so quickly. Your wedding ring is most likely just stuck somewhere in that drain muck.

recycleCompanies know that using eye catching, environmentally friendly sounding marketing claims makes them attractive to consumers. But how do you know if that earth friendly lingo is true? When it comes to green claims, there's some big news that's hot off the presses: The Federal Trade Commission just released its updated "Green Guide." Now if a business promotes something as "green" what that means can no longer be a "gray" area.
Uncle Sam's consumer watchdog agency warns companies now better be able to prove any green claims with scientific evidence! If a product has some seal or stamp of approval on it, the certifying organization better be real and there better be data to back it up.
