Your Holiday Party ... and Your Sun Sign!
Amp up your role as hostess or host this year by throwing your best holiday bash yet! Based on your Sun sign, here's a sleighful of holiday hosting ideas sure to resonate with your nature.
Keep things short and spicy by serving cocktails and hors d'oeuvres rather than a formal sit-down meal. Your fiery nature loves activity, so be sure to create space for a dance floor as you decorate in bright colors.
Quality counts, so keep your guestlist short so you can splurge on decadent drinks and snacks. A low-key get-together ensures you'll have time to catch up with friends. Make sure your party space is comfortable with soft lighting -- and even softer pillows!
Since you're a social butterfly, host a drop-in party -- and encourage guests to bring a friend. Deck your place out with wild decor, and keep the music edgy but low to encourage conversation.
Quality time with your inner circle matters most, so host a cozy dinner party. Home-cooking fits your nurturing

How Your Sun Sign Handles the HolidaysRead More »from How Your Sun Sign Handles the Holidays
Now that Thanksgiving has passed, we're now into the heart of the season of family gatherings. For some, this is cause for celebration; for others, great dread. Even the healthiest of families can experience tension when everyone is again thrown into one place. How does your Sun sign handle the holidays?
Aries' usual spontaneity is a bit squelched throughout the holiday season, for they may find that family members are more defensive or critical than before. They need to be less of an entertainer and instead focus on trying to pull everyone together.
In their own placid way, Taurus is able to keep everyone calm. They don't look like they're doing much, but they wield a positive influence that's very persuasive. Their strength of personality invariably wins their loved ones over.
Gemini is thrilled to have a wide range of conversations to be part of. At first, they may need to push themselves to join the party. Once they warm up, however, everyone is bound to enjoy their company.

Health Remedies for a Neptune-Radiant ThanksgivingRead More »from Health Remedies for a Neptune-Radiant Thanksgiving
On Thanksgiving 2012, the stars will inspire a day when you'll be able to readily connect to a wellspring of gratitude! That's because Neptune, the planet of compassion and heart-centered understanding, will be quite strong tomorrow, squaring the luminous Sun and forming a harmonious trine with the love planet, Venus.
Neptune dissolves boundaries and can make you overly sensitive to those around you. Holidays themselves usually elicit many powerful feelings, and with Neptune radiating so strongly tomorrow, you can expect greater potential for experiencing feelings of low-level anxiety -- notably the type where you can't pinpoint the source. If this becomes the case for you, consider Aspen flower essence, which helps to instill calm and provide protection for a sensitive heart.
