Let Astrology Help You Get Your Kids Back to School Smoothly
Heading back to school can be a tricky transition for kids, with many having to deal with new friends, new teachers, and even new social dynamics. It's normal for your child to feel some anxiety about heading back to school, so based on your child's Sun sign qualities, here are some tips to help you support their transition!
Cardinal signs: Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn
If your child is an Aries, Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn, they are a Cardinal sign, which means they like to initiate change. Paint the back-to-school experience as an adventure full for new possibilities, and your child will likely start to get excited about heading back. Helping your child understand that onward and upward change is a normal part of life will make it easier for them to navigate any changes they may initially resist. You'll see new maturity emerging in your child as the school year begins.
Stock up on new sportswear for your Aries child; revamp an old favorite toy or piece of school equipment for your

Once every three years or so, we see two full Moons in a row in the same sign; in fact, the last time we had two consecutive full Moons in the sign of Aquarius was August 1983. With this month's second full Moon occurring in Aquarius on Tuesday, August 20, it's round two of the contest to remain emotionally objective in all situations. Do all you can to take the high road!
During full Moons, the tides of emotion and passion are at their peak. However, Aquarian Moons aren't known for unbounded emotional displays. Instead, they prefer a more cautious and reserved approach to self-expression.

How to Speak to Your Man's Sun Sign!Read More »from How to Speak to Your Man's Sun Sign!
Do you get tongue-tied around a cute guy? Does it seem as if your partner isn't listening as actively as you'd like? Or perhaps you simply feel misunderstood?
Mercury, the cosmic minister of communication, is the fastest moving planet in the sky and loves to throw you off-balance with its quick-changing ways. But if you learn how to speak to your man's astrological sign -- which can strongly affect his style of communication -- you can effectively get your message across.
Youthful Aries sometimes childishly blurts out things most adults would agree shouldn't be said. However, these utterances come from an honest place and certainly aren't intended to harm. When communicating with an Aries man, a direct approach is best, rather than tiptoeing around with formalities. He can take the blunt truth.
Taurus responds well to sensory messages. Elaborating about the way things look, feel, taste, and sound will make your message come alive in the Bull's imagination. If your topic is dry, juice

Now that the communication planet, Mercury, has entered the fiery and fixed energy of Leo through August 24, talk has become direct and dramatic. Rather than analyze and dissect information, it's likely that you feel more compelled to simply speak from your heart.

Use Astrology to Help Plan the Ideal Family Vacation!Read More »from Use Astrology to Help Plan the Ideal Family Vacation!
You're a Taurus with a Libra partner, an Aries daughter, and a Scorpio son. How do you plan to keep everyone happy during your late-summer vacation? Since they'll all want something different out of the trip, you're going to have to put your astrological thinking cap on!
The excitable signs -- Aries, Sagittarius, and Gemini -- want to travel to exotic places and experience high-speed adventure that takes them away from humdrum reality. They're not good at lounging around the pool or catching up on their reading; they need action.
The holiday explorers are Aquarius -- who, despite a love of state-of-the-art gadgetry, also has an interest in archaeology and all things historic -- and, oddly enough, Pisces, who loves roaming off the beaten path. These signs may not appreciate too much rough living, but their souls yearn for wide-open spaces.

The Relationship Between Your Baby's Moon Sign and Eating HabitsRead More »from The Relationship Between Your Baby's Moon Sign and Eating Habits
You can spend half your life building a career, learning, and becoming a better person. And yet, the challenge of feeding a baby his or her first solid foods can reduce even the most successful, intelligent, and patient among us into a screaming ball of frustration.
In personal birth charts, the Moon represents a person's basic emotional and physical responses, so it's no surprise that, quite often, babies act much more like their Moon sign than their Sun sign. Just like your own eating habits, those of an infant are strongly influenced by the sign placement of their natal Moon. Learning that placement and working with it (rather than against it) can go a long way toward making meal times more smooth -- for both yourself and your baby.
Fire: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
You'd think these little gaffers would be too tired after asserting their wills all night long -- or as you like to put it, "not sleeping" -- to put up a fight about eating their creamed spinach. But babies with a Fire
