Everyone loves a well-dressed family ... but of course, it's not easy getting your clan to look great. Try getting a five-year-old to put on what you want her to wear, or an adolescent boy to listen to you about anything at all -- this isn't a job for the weak. Now, with summer about to end, perhaps you could use a few cosmically inspired family fashion ideas for fall! What's your sign, mom?
Bold is beautiful. You're drawn to the energy of bright colors and can do color-blocking like nobody's business, so don't focus too much on matching outfits. Instead, let your youngster choose their own color in one of the cheery hues to which you're so naturally drawn.
Tactile Taurus falls in love with the feel of a fabric -- the softer, the better. Get the whole family into one type of fabric -- be it soft linens, silk jerseys or seersucker -- and the effect will be downright huggable.
Clothing is communication to the Gemini mom, so you want your family's clothing to speak

Associated with the Greek messenger god, Hermes, Mercury symbolizes communication and information exchange. Every year -- for three periods that last about three weeks each -- Mercury moves backwards in what's commonly known as a "retrograde" pattern.Read More »from Mercury retrograde alert: communication blunders ahead!
Between August 3-26, 2011, Mercury reverses itself through the sign of Leo, making communication bloopers much more likely. Wires will get crossed, misunderstandings will occur, and dates and times will be easily mixed up.
But Mercury retrograde doesn't entirely represent problems. In fact, its reverse motion offers you the chance to slow down and, rather than try to come up with new ideas or make fresh contacts, follow up on existing deals and outstanding communications. This is a time to review and redo. And since communication and contractual arrangements are more flexible during a Mercury retrograde, it's also a terrific time to renegotiate existing schedules.

Like astrological wild cards, June's pair of eclipses highlight opposing signs, Gemini and Sagittarius. Each of these cosmic events illuminates a dominant theme for your summer to come. What's yours? Find out now!Read More »from How this month's eclipses affect your sun sign
What exactly is the effect of an eclipse? These events make certain new or full Moons unique, and when they occur, it's possible to glimpse a preview of the future.

Alternately, a lunar eclipse sees Earth pass between the Sun and a full Moon, blocking the Moon from receiving the Sun's light for a short time.
