Every Halloween, the inevitable question rises: What will I dress up my child as this year? The options may be endless, but the costume choices are not always easy. Finding one that matches your child's personality -- and that won't break the bank -- is the key. The stars may have some clues!
As the warriors of the zodiac, the costumes that work best for these little ones allow them to exert their inner Mars. Think Olympic athlete or gladiator.
Depending on the kind of Taurus your child is, opt for either a socialite or a hippie outfit. The former is a great costume option for kids who aspire to the glamorous life; consider the latter idea, however, if your child is more a fan of the natural world.
A librarian or stand-up comic will fit the bill perfectly for these little bookworms and class clowns!
Intuitive and imaginative by nature, Cancer children make wonderful fortune tellers on Halloween. Give them a magic eight-ball, wrap a scarf around their head

Everybody does something a little differently when it comes to home decor. Some hang antique crystals from their chandeliers, while others favor a Star Wars theme; some like pastels, while for others only black and white will do. How does your star sign affect the way you go about feathering your nest?
Aries is the quintessential minimalist. They tack an abstract canvas onto the wall, throw a pillow on the ground and call it a living room. They sleep on the ground and cook in a single pot. And they look so good doing it that visitors wonder if they should go minimalist, too.
The sheets are satin. The duvet is velvet. The bathrobe is plush. The towels are super high-thread count. When Taurus decorates, they go all the way. The luxury-loving Bull doesn't cut any corners when it comes to their home, and it shows.
Gemini's just as happy camping in the woods as they are in a bubble bath at a five-star hotel. When it comes to their own home, the Twins do a little of

In-laws can seem positively heavenly if you're willing to glance up at the Stars. As our spouse's family members, we don't have as much history with these folks, but we surely hope to make more in the future. (Right?) These astrological profiles can serve as a handy guide to family dynamics.
If you've got an Aries for an in-law, you'd better be ready to run! Not from them, but with them. This is someone possessed of a great deal of energy, and they would surely appreciate it if you were the same. You might also find them to be a bit brash and rash, and at times, they are. The Ram is likely to say whatever comes to mind without thinking about it first. Perhaps it's because they're fond of stirring the pot to see how you react. Extroverted, bold, and even a bit selfish, the Arian in-law will often ram their way toward what they want, and good luck to anyone standing in the way! Ah, but you love their child, don't you?
The Taurus in-law is conservative, traditional, and in

Your Sun Sign can tell you much about your attitude toward money -- how you spend and save, as well as how likely you are to earn it. Read on to learn more about yourself and your financial habits.
Does the Ram seek fame and fortune? Definitely the former, not the latter. While Arians could hit it big and make a bundle (many are entrepreneurs), it's more than likely that any fortune attained will have been as a result of their incredible will to succeed, not a desire to get rich. Arians are daring and bold, the go-getters of the Zodiac. They like to run the show -- and they like to win. This quality might get them in trouble every now and again where money is concerned, but invariably, they wriggle out of it. It's action and adventure the Ram craves, whatever the cost. With the world as their oyster, Arians will purr like a cat. The Rambo of the boardroom has arrived!
The slow and steady Bull is one of the Zodiac's great providers. Those born under this Sign are
They're your parents' parents, and often your best friends. Grandparents play special roles in the family: protector, mediator and unabashed fan. What should you expect from these folks, and how can you enhance your relationship with them? The profiles herein will show you why a Capricorn grandparent might be more conservative and traditional, where a Leo grandparent will always be the life of the party. Send your musical Pisces grandmum over to the piano to play a few melodies. Read on to get the scoop.
Think of your Aries grandparent as a pal - a really active pal. This is a person you can count on to accompany you to a soccer game, or to cheer you on while you attempt a triathlon. Chances are good that in their youth, your Aries grandparent would have engaged in these activities as well. An Aries grandparent is a built-in, non-stop cheering section. These are very active folks who will have little trouble keeping up with you. Initiators that they are, the Ram grandparent

Just as they have distinctive personality traits, goals and needs, each Sun Sign has its own sense of fashion and style. Aries can usually be found in red, Scorpio is dressed to kill and Sagittarius doesn't much care what it wears, so long as their clothing gives them room to move. What you wear can say a lot about who you are and what you want out of life.
As a Ram, you want to be first in everything. This means you probably know, up to the minute, all about the current trends in fashion. One step ahead of the game, you're a trendsetter. Not afraid to try new things, as long as they appeal to your sense of fun and adventure, you'll wear the most daring of styles. As soon as you see a new item on the rack, you know it'll be the latest trend, and you're not afraid to spend your hard-earned cash to be the first to have 'the look.' In the eighties, you might have been the first to wear shoulder pads (and the first to rip them out toward the end of the decade); in the nineties, you
Read More »from What City Suits You?
Every city has its own character, and every astrological sign has their own particular needs. Why do some people love New York City, while others can't imagine living there? Finding a city is like falling love, and your Sun sign has a lot to do with which cities you're drawn to. Where should you live?
ARIES Action-loving Aries needs to be on the go, which why New York City feels like their very own Big Apple. As soon as the Ram hits the pavement in the city that never sleeps, they know they've found just the place for them. But Aries should be sure to spend a weekend away from the city once in a while to counter all that activity with some slow, quiet energy.
TAURUS Taurus loves Madison, Wisconsin. The Bull is happy as can be in the heartland, and loves to be able to get to their favorite organic store, their yoga studio and their office with just a few, short drives. Taurus loves the steady pace and great food in a place like this, where they won't get bored, but they won't be

It's back-to-school time, and your kid is off to meet another year's batch of classmates. Wondering how they'll behave this school year? As children develop their personalities, astrology can serve as a guide to better understand their new-found quirks and behaviors. While the Cancer child is likely to be a homebody, the Sag kid will want to be out and about exploring. True to their Sun sign, it's the Leo child who will clamor for the spotlight, while the Pisces tyke will be happiest in a dream world all their own. Read on to explore your child's natural essence, and to better understand them as autumn approaches.
The Aries child is a junior dynamo, whizzing from here to there in a constant blur of activity. Pioneering by nature, this is a child who loves to explore and possesses tremendous energy. After-school activities are a must for your little one, so think boy or girl scouts, or the soccer club. Sports are actually a good choice for the Aries child, as this youngster is

Toss out those guys for the night -- you deserve an evening of chick flicks. Whether you tune in to hopeless romantic comedies or hard-driving girl-power dramas, let astrology be your guide to your all-time female film faves. Pour the libations, gather your gal pals and indulge in those guilty pleasures.
ARIES When the charismatic Aries gal wants to escape from reality, she pulls out the heavy hitters. This girl wants drama and nothing delivers quite like 'Cat on a Hot Tin Roof', 'The Big Chill' and 'The Color Purple.' She allows the intensity of the story and the characters to draw her in and bring her to another reality.
TAURUS She loves Hugh Grant movies. Not only is this leading man a charming hunk, he's terminally commitment-phobic and unavailable, which makes him all the more appealing to the tenacious Taurus gal. Pop that corn and pour that hot chocolate because this is an evening filled with the essentials: life, death and love. From 'Four Weddings and a Funeral' to 'Bridget
