The Planets and St. Patrick's Day
The once-religious holiday celebrated in honor of Saint Patrick and the holy trinity is now associated with parades, the color green and lots (and lots) of imbibing. So what does any of this have to do with astrology?
St. Patrick's Day falls very close to the Vernal Equinox (and the start of the tropical zodiac), so some consider it the party-hearty precursor to the dawn of spring. In addition, this rambunctious holiday always falls under Pisces, a sign that's known for enjoying a libation or two.

Mercury Retrograde In Aries: Scream First, Think LaterRead More »from Mercury Retrograde in Aries: Scream First, Think Later
Brace yourself! Mercury -- the neutral messenger planet that shoulders the blame for every missing check, delayed train, lost item and text war -- has entered, yes, yet another retrograde cycle.
It's very common for people to protest, "Again?! Wasn't Mercury just retrograde?" Certainly it feels as if Mercury's reversals occur more often than any of us would like, but in fact, they only happen a few times each year. Mercury's current retrograde period, which lasts until March 23 in the firebrand constellation of Aries, could give a whole new meaning to the concept of anger management!

Does your manager use bullying tactics? Is his or her combative attitude toward you driving you crazy? Your Sun sign indicates how you tend to react to sticky relational situations in your workplace. Learn more now!
Aries never puts up with unfair treatment for long. They'll let their feelings be known ... but probably by the water cooler rather than in the boss's face!
Taurus will take it on the chin and seemingly ignore the situation. However, the Bull is quite adept at the art of passive resistance and will secretly design roadblocks to trip up their boss.
Gemini is good at being elusive at work, making them tricky to pin down. As a result, it's very likely that their boss will learn that his or her aggressive behavior won't have its intended effect.
Cancer will withdraw after feeling initially hurt, but will turn around and demand fair treatment soon enough. They also won't waste time searching for a more harmonious job situation.

Your Relationship Sign: How Well Do You Two Match Up?Read More »from Your Relationship Sign: How Well Do You Two Match Up?
Everything has a moment in time when it begins -- including your relationship. This means that, just the same way you have a Sun sign, your relationship has one as well. Your relationship sign, which is determined by your anniversary date, shows the true nature of your partnership and reveals what works -- and what doesn't.
Certain relationship signs are better for long-distance love, while others are suited to a more traditional style of domestic romance. Along those same lines, some couples are built for commitment; others simply for casual flings.
Where does your relationship fit in? Instead of trying to force it to be something it's not, use the wisdom of your relationship sign to help make the most of what you and your partner have to offer one another!
