The Gender Gap and Your Sun SignRead More »from The Gender Gap and Your Sun Sign
Ever wondered why lady Libras are very different from male ones? Or why male Cancers don't seem to be designed from the same template as female Crabs? Some astrological signs differ greatly between the genders, while others barely demonstrate any difference at all. Learn how your gender affects your Sun sign qualities!
Aries is an active, fiery, and quite masculine energy that reflects on both men and women. With Aries, there's always a thrusting ambition to reach the top of the heap. Both sexes are competitive go-getters and adventurers. Aries women are not frilly or feminine, and like Aries men, they make it happen!
The Bull is known for being earthy, placid, security-conscious, and possessive. Both Taurean sexes share an indulgent approach to life, though men tend to be higher up the gourmet scale; Taurus females generally aim more for home comforts. Both can be stubborn, though males are more inclined to be noticeably power-hungry.
Gemini is a true Air
Can Your Sun Sign Handle a Job Promotion?Read More »from Can Your Sun Sign Handle a Job Promotion?
You've earned the promotion you've been working toward for ages, and now it's time to step into your new role of greater responsibility. But, can you rise to the occasion -- and above potentially envious colleagues -- to make the most of your newfound success? Assuming a leadership position comes more naturally to some Sun signs than it does to others.
The two signs who will stride most confidently into a promotion are Leo and Capricorn. Leo adores being looked up to, and they'll relish the chance to be above the common crowd; in fact, they'll truly come into their own with higher professional status. Capricorn will ignore any digs from co-workers and simply get on with the job -- with their mind focused on their next move up the ladder!
Scorpio has always been one of the top signs for military leadership because they're so determined and resourceful. They'll rise to the challenge and do well -- just beware of anyone whose spiteful remarks get under their skin. They certainly won't

Typecast As a Mom? Let Astrology Nurture Your Independence!Read More »from Typecast as a Mom? Let Astrology Nurture Your Independence!
With Mother's Day just ahead this coming weekend, are you feeling a little frustrated being seen as simply a mom? You want to be yourself for once -- can your Sun sign help you carve out time to enjoy a bit of freedom and independence?
Since they don't tend toward domesticity in the first place, Aries has no problem making time for themselves. They're free spirits by nature, and they'd rather assert their individuality than be tied down. Because of this, the Ram is often a role model for other freedom-seeking signs!
Taurus enjoys the security of home and family -- especially because they get to exert more control over how everything runs. The Bull doesn't have the same urge for freedom as other signs. Rather, their identity comes from nurturing what makes them feel safe.
Wanderers at heart, Gemini knows that their independence comes from having a wide circle of friends. If they're not out and about, odds are you'll find them feeding their voracious appetite for reading. When

Employ your children! Make it a fun family activity for you and your little ones.

According to ancient wisdom, the white magnolia is considered a great symbol of purity. A single magnolia tree planted in a home's front garden is believed to attract love, happiness, and a sense of completion and contentment.
If grown in the back yard of a home, the magnolia is said to represent hidden gems and jewels, as well as the gradual accumulation of great wealth.
And since spring is always a popular season for nuptials, it's worth noting how Feng Shui masters have long believed that including magnolia blooms in a bridal bouquet will

Whether you're a juice-loving Sagittarius or a mango-munching Leo, the stars have something useful to say about what you should eat or drink to be at your best!
There's a reason why you sometimes choose to withdraw into your private space with comfort food -- say, a pint of strawberry ice cream -- to help calm your nerves after a trying day.

Give Your Partner A Birthday Party Their Sun Sign Will Never Forget!Read More »from Give Your Partner a Birthday Party Their Sun Sign Will Never Forget!
Does your partner have a milestone birthday coming up? If so, are you wondering how you can give them -- and their Sun sign -- a celebration they'll never forget? Learn more now!
Aries won't appreciate a quiet family dinner with elderly relatives. No, they'll prefer a rowdy party with all their favorite friends and games aplenty. Rent a roulette wheel, get out the dartboard, and bring in a pool table. Food should be easy to grab, because your convivial Ram will be in constant motion all party long. A raucous barbecue would be ideal.
Taurus needs to be indulged, so amazing food and fancy drinks should be the main priority. Decorate the party location with plenty of flowers, classy tablecloths, and velvet cushions. After all, Taurus just loves to be pampered!
Gemini isn't concerned with having a fancy bash. Rather, what would warm their heart most would be to invite every friend they've ever had (and there'll be a lot). Those who can't come should be asked to write a birthday note

Want to join the green parade on Earth Day today? Though there are many ways to celebrate this eco-holiday, you can maximize your planetary contribution by tuning into the skies above to help guide your environmentally minded actions. Your Sun sign offers not only clues on how to best nurture Mother Earth, but also suggestions for greening your life every day of the year!
Volcanos and hot, tropical climates bring out the fiery Earth warrior in you. Consider making a donation to protect the Amazon rainforest, or make a pilgrimage to a famous volcano to celebrate your own special connection to the planet.

Despite your best efforts to keep a smooth financial flow going in your life, how many times do you fail to set it straight? If you're willing to face your inner saboteur induced by quirks of your Sun sign's personality, you'll be halfway toward getting it right!
Just as you start to make progress on your spending-savings ratio, impulse buys and kamikaze spending habits can instantly set you back in the red. You love challenges, so try saving a quarter of your income over the next year. Put that Arian noggin to good use -- a penny saved is one Ram less burned.
Playing it too safe, putting all your eggs in one basket, or being loyal to a financial fault are just a few typical Taurus no-nos when it comes to avoiding monetary fiascos. Of course, with Taurus being the sign of money, it's rarely that dramatic. Rather, it's usually a slow draining of funds that happens over time when you refuse to bust a risky move.
