Whenever I think of heat -- as many of us surely do throughout July -- I also sometimes think of people getting a little hot under the collar. External heat can sometimes lead to internal overheating, so this month I'd like to share a "many blessings" meditation that can help cool down any complicated situation -- past and/or present.
Firstly, find a cool and quiet place where you will not be disturbed for at least ten minutes. Once you've done this, get yourself comfortable by either sitting or laying down, with your back straight and your

Professional Integrity and Your Sun SignRead More »from Professional Integrity and Your Sun Sign
A work colleague of yours has been treated unfairly by management, and your knowledge of the situation exceeds what others know. Will you help your bruised co-worker and reveal the truth, or look out for number one and remain quiet?
Aries is competitive and likes moving up the ladder; at the same time, they prefer a victory that comes after a fair fight. In professional matters, they can always be counted on to speak the truth as they see it.
Taurus will keep their own counsel and wait to see which way the wind blows. They may offer behind-the-scenes support, but they're also less likely to be proactive with public condemnation.
Gemini will be tricky to pin down if asked for support. They won't act the role of hero until they're certain they won't do themselves any damage.
Cancer is regularly swayed by their emotions and will feel inclined to back up their co-worker. On the other hand, they're ambitious, so they may end up disappearing into their shell until they see which way the tide
How Your Sun Sign Can Help Attract Abundance!Read More »from How Your Sun Sign Can Help Attract Abundance!
Prosperity is at your fingertips! Even though Jupiter left Taurus on June 11, the positive aspects of this powerful transit will linger through the remainder of this year because of its connection with powerhouse Pluto. Due to the tenacity of Pluto, anything you launch now will not only stick, but continue to grow over the next nine years.
However, you'll have to free your ingenuity if you wish to avail yourself to greater opportunities for improvement. Here's how your Sun sign can help you attract abundance throughout the second half of 2012!
Your place to prosper throughout the rest of this year is in finance. While other elements of daily life may grab your attention, your ways of seeking prosperity just happen to dovetail with your higher priorities.
You have the Midas touch right now, so your life is free to grow in any area you desire! You may have to sort weeds from flowers ... but those flowers will blossom and bear fruit over the next several years.

Dads come in all signs, shapes and colors. In honor of giving props to our pops, here's a sign-by-sign breakdown you can share with your father while he tries on his new necktie and gloats over his "#1 Dad" balloon.
Macho, macho dad -- the super-hero daddy / emperor of the house! This firebrand father is all fun and games until somebody's ego gets hurt -- preferably not his. When it comes to taking daredevil risks, let your Ram daddy show you the way. Hint: Always let him win ... and always wear a helmet when accompanying him anywhere.
This is the Rock of Gibraltar guardian who will never falter from his fatherly duties. Let him teach you a thing or two about determination, beauty and sticking to your guns. Sure, he's stubborn as all get-out, but you'll always know where things stand with him. Wimpy offspring need not apply.

How Astrology Affects Your Interpersonal Skills at WorkRead More »from How Astrology Affects Your Interpersonal Skills at Work
After a protracted battle in your workplace, you've been proven right against much resistance. Your Sun sign holds the key to your reaction: Do you shout triumphantly to ensure that everyone knows of your victory? Radiate a quiet pleasure that your judgment has been vindicated? Or something in between?
As an ultra-competitive sign, Aries is likely to proclaim their victory loudly at first. But before long, they'll realize that their vociferousness isn't winning them any friends, so they'll move on.
Taurus will be conflicted. After all, they don't like their achievements to go unnoticed ... but at the same time, they're quite reserved. They'll end up feeling pleased and resentful in one confusing swoop.
Gemini will gloat and poke fun at those who didn't believe in them. They'll be sure to make it clear who's got the brains in the business!
Cancer will remain bitter that they weren't listened to in the first place. And they'll also make sure everyone eats their humble pie!

Does Your Sun Sign's Element Make You a Saver ... or a Spender?Read More »from Does Your Sun Sign's Element Make You a Saver ... Or a Spender?
Do you stash away money like it's going out of style? Or does your spending behavior lean toward showing no concern for long-term security? Your Sun sign's element may hold the answer!
Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) tend to be in-the-moment people with an unshakeable belief that money will always be there when they need it. Their belief is: Why should I deprive myself today when my guardian angel will swoop in to help tomorrow? These signs are not the best when it comes to strategic planning, so money doesn't concern them much ... unless they run short, of course.

Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) are well rooted in the material universe and realize full well that money is a finite resource. They budget with an eye toward unexpected emergencies and long-range financial goals. They can certainly be indulgent from time

All you recent college grads now set to go looking for your first big job in the so-called real world -- this one's for you! (It's also for anyone else out there in search of payment for their passion.)
I'll start by offering a reminder that it only takes two seconds for someone in a hiring position to form a first impression of you. And of course, while we all know that first impressions ideally shouldn't be based on looks alone, well, unfortunately that's not our reality. Any advantage you can bring to the employment party, all the better.
