According to Indian tradition, the human energetic system runs through the spine, from the perineum (near the tailbone) to the top of the head. Along the way, it consists of a series of chakras, or energy centers, which themselves are associated with different astrological signs. Learn which chakra is connected to your Sun sign!Read More »from Which Chakra Are You?
Aries is associated with the Manipura, or solar chakra. Located right under the ribs and traditionally visualized as being yellow, the solar chakra is the center of self-confidence, power and charisma. If these qualities sound familiar to the charming Ram, it's no surprise!
Sexy Taurus is all about the Swadisthana, or sexual chakra. The Swadisthana is related to sociability and, of course, sexuality. Colored orange and located just behind the pelvic bone, this chakra helps make the Bull particularly adept in the fine art of seduction.
Muladhara, or the root chakra, is Gemini's special spot. Located at the perineum, the root chakra is a center for physical

Focus on the stress you carry in your face, then release that tension by channeling any aggressive impulses into very raw movement. You can even start by giving yourself a little facial massage with chewy mouth stretches to release jaw tension. Punching, kicking, lunging forward or any martial arts activity will get you right into the Aries vibe of activating your instincts and aggression.
Slow yourself down. Truly listen to your body as you use deliberate, earthy and sensual movements that allow you to feel as if you are using all five senses. Work closely with sound and movement together, and allow your movement to remain close to the ground. Focus specifically on the neck and shoulders, where Taureans tend to carry

The North Node of the Moon represents energy potential, and is massively influential as it draws us in the direction of what will be most fulfilling in our lives. It demands the conviction of our vision without having had the trial-and-error to guarantee us that what we undertake will be successful or a complete flop. It compels us to seek a new path and to imagine, What if?Read More »from Your New Year Resolutions: Let the Moon Guide You!
The South Node, on the other hand, is simply what is. It represents qualities perhaps mastered in childhood or in past lifetimes.
While it's a comfortable extension of our life and circumstances, the South Node is considered more of a gift to others than to ourselves -- one that we give blindly and often by rote. The North Node -- its sign, placement and house -- is that precious potential that reveals itself to us with the exhilaration and mystery of the Magician. It's as if the universe, if we dare listen, keeps conspiring ways to pull us out of our comfort zone and place us on a path that promises freedom.
"Among other things, you'll find that you're not the first person who was ever confused and frightened and even sickened by human behavior. You're by no means alone on that score, you'll be excited and stimulated to know. Many, many men have been just as troubled morally and spiritually as you are right now. Happily, some of them kept records of their troubles. You'll learn from them -- if you want to. Just as some day, if you have something to offer, someone will learn something from you. It's a beautiful reciprocal arrangement. And it isn't education. It's history. It's poetry."Read More »from What it Means to Be a New Year's Baby

What is the significance of being born on the first day of the year? Do you feel the pressure of being special -- the gift of the New Year? Do you always need to be first? Were you born with a whole host of past life New Year's resolutions programmed into your genes? Are you obsessed with goals and resolutions? Do you have an attachment to the beginning of
Surely you're familiar with the usual advice offered when making New Year's Resolutions: setting realistic goals, taking baby steps and valuing each small and measurable result.

While the purposeful Sun is concerned with achieving New Year's resolutions, it is the Moon - your emotional center - that has the power to anchor them. By considering the emotional character of your Moon sign (determined by where the Moon lies in your birth chart), you can better understand your deepest needs and follow thorugh on your resolutions!
The Aries Moon is restless, excitable and seeks action. It bores in stagnation and wants the rush of feeling like the first sign of the zodiac that it is. This Moon will not sit well with stodgy or conservative goals that don't honor its thirst for adventure. The trick with this Moon sign is to keep it entertained by coming up with new and exciting ways
Even for people who love shopping, the holidays can be a minefield. You want to give something personal, but how can you guess the hearts' desires of the ones you wish to spoil? Is little Susie a Mac or a PC? Does your man want kitchen knives or a weed whacker? Can't remember if your guy even wears cuff links? The animal sign of your recipient can give you helpful hints about the presents they really want, and steer you clear of items likely to be re-gifted. Here's an easy cheat sheet identifying what's sure to please the animals in your life!Read More »from Gift Guide: What to buy your favorite animal sign
Self improvement is a Rat's motto. Anything that helps them be (or look like) an expert is appreciated. Gift suggestions: how-to books, embossed stationery, monogrammed accessories, executive accoutrements, personal grooming products.

Rams are fiery, impulsive and active, so any gift that saves time or enables an athletic hobby will go over well. Aries are playful, so try a fun gift such as a game, or an 'experience gift' such as sky-diving lessons -- or for the tamer set, a gift certificate to miniature golf. Don't give the Ram anything too practical; the gift that challenges them, initiates a new project, or utilizes some of their intense physical energy will stoke their spirit!
For the Aries men in your life:
A durable watch, the latest digital camera, sturdy sunglasses, shaving kit (nothing too fancy), sky-diving lessons, tickets to the Super Bowl, fireplace
The holidays are here and we know that means: Parties! Even the budget-conscious will probably pick up a few new pieces for the festivities.

Not everyone can pull off a leopard-print cocktail dress under the mistletoe -- but if you're a Tiger, your wild side may be your best side. Your animal sign can tell you about your own personal kind of charm, and how your wardrobe can showcase your natural essence this season.
Perfectly polished Rat should always dress for success, and jazzy executive touches are appropriate, no matter how formal or informal your event. It's the details that set you apart: a silk neckerchief tied smartly, with matching shoes and clutch. Coordinate jewelry and hair accessories for that put-together finish.
Timeless elegance is your domain, so avoid this year's "it" dress. A truly classic look suits you

Ephemeral Aries can't be bothered with too much maintenance. In fact, it sometimes seems like Aries would forget their hair entirely if it weren't attached to their heads. How to explain, then, how this laissez-faire approach always ends up looking so good?
Sensual Taurus gives their hair a hundred strokes before bed to keep their locks gorgeous. Then they probably double that in morning before leaving the house. Add some high-quality hair product, and it's clear why every day is a good hair day for the beautiful Bull.
Gemini is not one to have the same hairstyle their entire life. They might grow it way down their back, then chop it off on a whim. Of all the signs, they're by far the most likely to sport brunette hair one day, then strawberry blonde the next. Experimentation
