Jupiter Enters Cancer: Wisdom of the Feminine
Last week, Jupiter finally left the sign of its detriment, Gemini, and moved into its sign of exaltation, Cancer. This means that Jupiter's finest qualities -- wisdom, expansion, opening -- will now express beautifully through the sensitive and nurturing waters of Cancer through July 2014!
After a year of doing time in so-many-choices-it-makes-your-head-spin Gemini, Jupiter's entrance into Cancer is a welcome shower of emotional healing -- a return to your gut instincts. Instead of spinning your wheels and never quite coming up with a viable answer, you can now delve more deeply into your core and connect on an instinctual level with what really nourishes your soul.

Whenever I think of heat, as I often do in July (who doesn't?), I sometimes also think of getting hot under the collar. External heat can sometimes lend itself to internal overheating, so this month I'd like to share a "many blessings meditation" to help cool down potentially heated situations!
To begin your meditation, find a cool and quiet place where you won't be disturbed for approximately ten minutes. Then, make yourself comfortable by either sitting or laying down with your back straight and your shoulders and neck relaxed.
How Your Sun Sign Impacts Your Beauty RoutineRead More »from How Your Sun Sign Impacts Your Beauty Routine
Whether it's for others or simply for ourselves, each of our Sun signs takes a different approach to looking good. How do the qualities of your own sign impact your beauty routine? Learn more now!
You're fuss-free and low-maintenance. Fast beauty fixes appeal to you since you've got too much else to do to spend time primping and preening.
Taurus: High-maintenance, mostly for comfort.
You love being pampered and, since you're the most tactile sign of the zodiac, you enjoy all kinds of beauty and grooming treatments. Plan a spa day every month to indulge yourself.
Gemini: Low-key ... but curious.
Color and fun are your beauty motivations. Keep makeup to a minimum, but experiment with hues, especially on your nails. Rings, bracelets, and necklaces are key for you.
Cancer: Low-key -- as long as it feels good.
Comfort is more important to you than looking like a beauty queen, so opt for easy-to-use products in neutral colors. Sentimental jewelry soothes your spirit.

Your Sun Sign's Role in Balancing Work and PlayRead More »from Your Sun Sign's Role in Balancing Work and Play
While work offers you a sense of purpose, taking time out plays a crucial role in refreshing your spirit. Enjoy the following tips designed to help your Sun sign create a healthy balance between work and play!
Burn off excessive energy or frustration with intense workouts. At work, break down large tasks into small objectives, then race the clock to get them done -- it's no secret you work best under pressure.
Pleasure and pampering are your best rewards after a long day at work. Schedule monthly massages or beauty treatments; DIY methods at home will do the trick as well.
Socializing activities such as trivia or comedy nights help you unwind after intense workdays. Isolating yourself isn't ideal for you, so head out at least once a week with friends.
Home-cooked meals with close friends or family help you put your work pressures in proper perspective. Frequent quality time with those in your inner circle is key to your well-being.

Whether you prefer a minimalist look or an abode full of mementos, decorating according to your Sun sign's natural style will help you truly feel at home. Astrology can help you discover the key ingredient to making your home reflect your true self!
Storage must be efficient and easy to access. You simply don't have the patience to fuss with time-consuming details. To match your endless energy, decorate with bold and bright colors.
Go ahead and splurge on big-ticket items such as a sofa and bed. Quality counts, while natural fibers create a relaxing environment for you. Earthy tones and soft neutrals are ideal. Donate what you no longer use to keep things fresh.
Upgrade your in-home technology to be as streamlined and multi-functional as possible. Consider wall mounts for TV-computer screens, and invest in speedy Internet connectivity.

Neptune Retrograde in Pisces: Redemption TimeRead More »from Neptune Retrograde in Pisces: Redemption Time
Neptune -- the planet responsible for submerging you into dreams, illusion, glamour, and delusions -- went retrograde in its home turf of Pisces last Friday. The next 22-plus weeks now present an opportunity to confront any areas of your life where you've been living in denial, so the time is right to examine your favorite modes of escapism, as well as any potentially deep emotional caves you've been avoiding.
Neptune's retrograde is an ideal time to connect back to your spirit and your unconscious in a powerful way. You're more likely at this time to turn your mind away from logic and reasoning, and instead towards creativity, mysticism, symbolism, and subtle energy. If you have strong Pisces, Neptune, or twelfth house energies in your birth chart, you'll feel this shift profoundly and may even become overwhelmingly sensitive.

With Venus, the planet of beauty and love, now in the sensitive waters of Cancer as of last Sunday, you'll find your affinity for family, tradition, and the past becoming pronounced. You'll crave cozy connections with others -- especially those who remind you of your roots.
You may easily find yourself longing for the past and feeling exceptionally nostalgic at this time. Cancer rules motherhood and home, so your domestic desires may even begin to kick in. You'll also become more concerned about what feels nurturing. In fact, the mantra of Cancer is "I feel," so be sure to pay further attention to what feels good -- and what doesn't.

Rice used to be commonly tossed at newlyweds as a wish for fertility. These days, however, with speculation that uncooked rice kills birds who eat it after the revelry has moved on, this grain-tossing tradition has largely passed.
As a replacement for throwing rice at the happy couple, Feng Shui suggests the following methods of symbolic well-wishing:
- Toss birdseed, believed to infuse a marriage with comfort and nourishment.
- Blow bubbles, as their soft and watery nature imparts peace and healthy flow.
- Toss flower petals, for their tree
