Venus Enters Cancer: Nostalgic Love
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.

Given that you may well feel ultra-sensitive and emotionally reactive, it could be easy to pitch a fit ... when what's actually necessary is more self-control over your moods. It's all too easy now to take things personally, which could get you

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
Use Astrology to Turn Weaknesses into Strengths!Read More »from Use Astrology to Turn Weaknesses into Strengths!
While we tend to unconsciously rely on our strengths, we rarely stop to consider how we can make our weaknesses a doorway to greater achievement. Your Sun sign plays a role in how you can accentuate buried personality traits that could help you succeed, so stop concentrating on who you are -- and try being who you aren't!
You're the courageous type, and doing things well -- quickly and with flair -- comes naturally to you. Think about cultivating sensitivity, as well as practicality that will allow you to figure out in advance what works and what doesn't. If you succeed, your inspirational approach will pack an even greater punch!
You're steady and sensible, a rock of stability. But rather than acting the part of a deeply rooted oak tree, try being a reed that bends in the breeze and adapts to others. Find the faith to follow your hunches, rather than double-checking all the practical angles. If you listen to your heart, your strength will become that much more

Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius!Read More »from Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius!
Tomorrow's powerful full Moon lunar eclipse in Sagittarius comes right on the heels of another exact square between revolutionary Uranus (in Aries) and evolutionary Pluto (in Capricorn). Don't be surprised if your heart and mind find themselves dramatically turned upside-down!
Despite the fact that eclipses tend to fall on the ominous and chaos-creating side, there seems to be an expansive and potentially magical element to this eclipse that's worth considering. Since tomorrow's eclipse squares Neptune -- something that's sure to add illusion (and perhaps even a bit of delusion) to the mix -- it all depends on how you use the energy of Neptune in Pisces. Perhaps begin by considering how conscious you are of the subtle, non-verbal exchanges that take place in your everyday life.

The Gender Gap and Your Sun SignRead More »from The Gender Gap and Your Sun Sign
Ever wondered why lady Libras are very different from male ones? Or why male Cancers don't seem to be designed from the same template as female Crabs? Some astrological signs differ greatly between the genders, while others barely demonstrate any difference at all. Learn how your gender affects your Sun sign qualities!
Aries is an active, fiery, and quite masculine energy that reflects on both men and women. With Aries, there's always a thrusting ambition to reach the top of the heap. Both sexes are competitive go-getters and adventurers. Aries women are not frilly or feminine, and like Aries men, they make it happen!
The Bull is known for being earthy, placid, security-conscious, and possessive. Both Taurean sexes share an indulgent approach to life, though men tend to be higher up the gourmet scale; Taurus females generally aim more for home comforts. Both can be stubborn, though males are more inclined to be noticeably power-hungry.

Can Your Sun Sign Handle a Job Promotion?Read More »from Can Your Sun Sign Handle a Job Promotion?
You've earned the promotion you've been working toward for ages, and now it's time to step into your new role of greater responsibility. But, can you rise to the occasion -- and above potentially envious colleagues -- to make the most of your newfound success? Assuming a leadership position comes more naturally to some Sun signs than it does to others.
The two signs who will stride most confidently into a promotion are Leo and Capricorn. Leo adores being looked up to, and they'll relish the chance to be above the common crowd; in fact, they'll truly come into their own with higher professional status. Capricorn will ignore any digs from co-workers and simply get on with the job -- with their mind focused on their next move up the ladder!
Scorpio has always been one of the top signs for military leadership because they're so determined and resourceful. They'll rise to the challenge and do well -- just beware of anyone whose spiteful remarks get under their skin. They certainly won't

Typecast As a Mom? Let Astrology Nurture Your Independence!Read More »from Typecast as a Mom? Let Astrology Nurture Your Independence!
With Mother's Day just ahead this coming weekend, are you feeling a little frustrated being seen as simply a mom? You want to be yourself for once -- can your Sun sign help you carve out time to enjoy a bit of freedom and independence?
Since they don't tend toward domesticity in the first place, Aries has no problem making time for themselves. They're free spirits by nature, and they'd rather assert their individuality than be tied down. Because of this, the Ram is often a role model for other freedom-seeking signs!
Taurus enjoys the security of home and family -- especially because they get to exert more control over how everything runs. The Bull doesn't have the same urge for freedom as other signs. Rather, their identity comes from nurturing what makes them feel safe.
Wanderers at heart, Gemini knows that their independence comes from having a wide circle of friends. If they're not out and about, odds are you'll find them feeding their voracious appetite for reading. When they're
