Considering Self-Employment? Check Your Sign!
Some Sun signs are corporate-minded and prefer organizational structure, while others positively flourish when left to their own devices. In an era when contracting or freelancing is sometimes the only option, here's how you might consider giving self-employment a shot!
Aries doesn't operate well in isolation. They need the input and camaraderie that colleagues offer, so they're best off finding a business where there's a partner (or even a friendly competitor) in tow.
Taurus adores working at home, although motivation may turn into a problem. They're geared toward design and are good with people, so a business with a solid clientele will keep them on schedule.
Gemini enjoys working with people, and would probably explode if left to a full day without opportunities to chat. Any home business they pursue needs a good deal of interaction -- and a few travel opportunities wouldn't hurt, either.

How Astrology Affects Your Spending HabitsRead More »from How Astrology Affects Your Spending Habits
Every sign have its special extravagances -- things worth buying without a second thought given. Then there are other items certain signs would never dream of spending a dime on without being pushed. What's your money mojo?
You love adventure -- romantic or otherwise -- so if it's going to bring a spark of excitement, you won't hold back for a second. It's the dreary practical things like toothbrushes and garbage bags you really resent.

Fire sign Moons: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
Fire symbolizes heat, so flavorful, spicy foods are the top preference for Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius. Garlic, ginger, and chile pepper add the intensity you crave. Focus on high-nutrient foods, such as fresh fruit and vegetables, to squeeze maximum fuel from the least amount of calories. Fire is linked to energy, which comes via iron-rich foods -- typically meats and dark green vegetables.
