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. You can also use the wisdom of astrology to aid yourself in contouring goals that reflect your own nature.
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?

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.
Generous Ox genuinely enjoys sharing their gifts with others. Gift suggestions: homemade pie or desserts, specialty coffee or tea, a fruit-of-the-month club membership, a fresh wreath or seasonal decor,

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. Every store window tells us what to wear, but the fact is, the style that makes you glitter is based on more than passing trends, or even your body type.Read More »from The Perfect Holiday Look for You
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
Are you the wash-and-go type, or do you spend hours in front of the mirror with a spray bottle and comb? How you handle (or don't handle) your hair could have a lot to do with your sun sign.Read More »from How Do You Handle Your Hair?
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
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!Read More »from Halloween Costumes for Your Little Cuties
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

A cool customer you are, Scorpio. You gals run the gamut between laissez-faire leaders and ingenious disciples of style. Known for calm demeanors, Scorpios are sensual, stern and sometimes secretive. It's no surprise that Bill Gates and Julia Roberts are both Scorpios, born on the same day (October 28).

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
