How Your Sun Sign Reacts in Times of Stress
Are you able to remain positive through difficult times -- be it the economy, job stress or simply life in general? There are three general types of people, as defined by how they react to stressful situations: optimists, pessimists and the ever-resourceful. Which type are you? Your Sun sign may hold the answer!
Aries trusts that their guardian angel -- or their own initiative -- will come to the rescue in tough times. The Ram enjoys the thrill of risk, so these folks don't become too jittery when times get rough.
Taurus believes that if they stand still long enough, the world will come to its senses. However, the Bull gets edgy if they're expected to adapt to new situations in a hurry.
Gemini is good at detaching themselves from hysteria. They're also highly adaptable, but can be more nervous than they appear -- which can overstress them when uncertainty goes on too long.
Cancer gets uptight when their well-balanced life is threatened. And being a super-sensitive sign, they tend

Certain Sun signs are dedicated individualists who refuse to compromise for anyone; others can happily merge their identity into their partner's way of life. Can you be in a relationship and still remain true to yourself?
Two signs which can co-exist in a relationship and yet remain their true selves -- albeit in very different ways -- are Aquarius and Scorpio.
Aquarius knows there's nothing more valuable than independence of mind and spirit, so it's no surprise that they demand a partner who shares their approach. This may result in an arm's-length relationship, but they'll be able to happily dance between their own interests and those of their partner without ever feeling diminished.
Scorpio, on the other hand, knows that they can only find their true identity through a close, passionate relationship. They have the ability to remain connected to their core even as they're engaged in a truly interdependent partnership.

Perhaps you've read about sign compatibility when it comes to analyzing relationships. How much do you know about how well each Sun sign's element -- Earth, Air, Water, Fire -- relates to others? Which signs connect most naturally with one another, and which ones might have the most difficulty communicating?
The three Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn) tend to get along well with one another simply because they speak the same language -- all three are interested in practicalities and take a common-sense view of the world. For example, when a Virgo person meets a Capricorn, they don't need to spend too much time figuring each other out!
It's no different with the other three Sun sign elements (Air, Water and Fire). After all, you probably know that it's often easier to be around people who share your own worldview.

Eclipses Are Coming! How Will They Affect Your Life?Read More »from Eclipses Are Coming! How Will They Affect Your Life?
Solar eclipses occur at a new Moon, while lunar eclipses take place at a full Moon. And with one of each on the astrological calendar over the next few weeks, it's time to prepare and make the most of these crucial -- and visually spectacular -- sky occurrences!
It makes sense that, in ancient times, people watched eclipses carefully and learned how to predict their occurrences. In our modern world, astrologers pay great attention not only to the signs of eclipses, but also to their planetary aspects in an effort to figure out what, when and where dramatic events will occur.

How Your Sun Sign Can Help You Handle Work OverloadRead More »from How Your Sun Sign Can Help You Handle Work Overload
In today's unsteady economy, cutbacks on staff have left those still employed to pick up the slack -- often to the point of being heavily overworked. Here are some suggestions for how your Sun sign can best survive an intense workload.
Fire Signs: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
Unfortunately, Fire signs tend not to be very well tuned in to their body's needs. Consequently, they often assume they can forever continue on an adrenaline rush ... but the truth is that these folks need to regularly recharge their batteries, just like everyone else.
How to best cope: On weekends, be sure to get plenty of rest; also, take soothing nature walks and stick to a healthy diet. At work, teach yourself to recognize when you've reached your limit -- when you do, take a break and wait until your energy picks back up so you can dive into your tasks refreshed.

Using Chinese Astrology to Move Beyond a BreakupRead More »from Using Chinese Astrology to Move Beyond a Breakup
While breakups are never easy, it can be even harder to deal with the mess they leave behind. Based on the wisdom of Chinese astrology, here are six important things to avoid after the split so your situation doesn't become any muckier than it needs to be.
1. Communication with your ex.
Seems obvious, right? But, we often start calling, emailing or texting soon enough. Sometimes it's out of loneliness, or maybe things seem unfinished and we want to hash out the details -- again. Either way, don't do it. If you're a Rat, you might be more prone to pick up the phone (you love to talk); resist this urge. Rabbits also may feel the pangs of loneliness more than others. If you get the itch to dial, call your best friend -- or even the operator! -- instead.
2. Hanging onto romantic mementos.
Those ticket stubs from the baseball game you went to together last summer? His oversized college jersey you adopted as your loungewear? Toss it all! Pigs in particular might become upset over getting

Which Sun Signs Age Most Gracefully?
Are you still wearing miniskirts well into middle age? Or have you decided you're old even before your time? Certain Sun signs gracefully embrace the inevitable signs of aging, while others fight them furiously.
The sign most associated with aging is Capricorn, mainly because it's ruled by Saturn, planet of time. Curiously, though, Capricorns live their lives in reverse -- they're very serious as children before loosening up as they grow older.
Aquarius has Saturn as a co-ruler and, like Capricorn, can be stuffy throughout childhood. That said, these folks tend to become more eccentric with age, not caring whether anyone thinks of them as odd for still wearing gypsy earrings at 80.
Aries and Sagittarius ignore their advancing years altogether. They live for the moment in an ongoing assumption that tomorrow will never come, all while wholeheartedly throwing themselves into the same activities they enjoyed 30 years before. Their vitality of spirit keeps them young.
