The Strength card suggests that you should try to be flexible and receptive. Listen to your instincts and believe there is light at the end of the tunnel and you will be able to persevere, take action or get over it. Be honest with yourself and open to suggestion. Trust in your own ability to demonstrate patience and hang in there; courage, determination and action -- not words -- can help you more effectively influence and deal with the demands of daily life.

A year or so ago I was on a date with someone. It was our third date or so, and it was a warm, sunny early fall day. (Already sounding like a Nicholas Sparks novel, right?)Read More »from The Best Date I’ve Ever Had Cost $36
She was the type of gal who would get a kick out of going to a fancy restaurant. At the time I didn't have a lot of cash. Actually, that's a massive understatement. Waiting on a freelance check that had yet to materialize in the mail, I had about $150 in my account that day and $40 in my wallet. We had planned to do something that involved $60 tickets that day, some outdoor concert, but when I went online to buy them that morning they were sold out. I silently thanked the ticket gods.

"Come over anyway," I said, and sure enough, she did about an hour or two later. "What are we doing?" she asked, and I had no real idea. "We're going to go to Prospect Park," I said, thinking that I'd surely think of something along the way. It was about a thirty minute walk. Surely I could think

When a man takes me on a date, I want to be wowed. Unless it's a date with a man that I met online. Then I am open to a generic coffee date at Starbucks or a slice at Ray's Pizza (actually, the New Yorker in me finds that very romantic). Because, you know, he may be a future stalker. So, what must a man (that I've met offline and find attractive) do to dazzle my pants off? There must be wining (cause I'm a bit of a wine-o), romance (a bouquet of peonies does a heart good) and creativity. Don't get me wrong. A night out at a restaurant is nice, but it isn't romantic. A drink at a bar makes my heart flutter but it won't have me tripping over you, unless I've had too much tequila. But it's better than the following places.

.Perhaps you remember when online dating came with an "embarrassed to say how you met your S.O." stigma. But, that's just not the case anymore. For women everywhere, these virtual matchmakers provide not only the chance to connect with someone who we may have never met otherwise, but they're also able to tailor our search for what we truly want - and deserve - in a relationship.
Therefore, we turned to a group of women who have each looked for their own special somethings through the Interwebs - be it a ring or just some Friday-night fun. They're filling us in on how the world of online dating works, how to make the most of the experience, and how the Internet - yes, the Internet, Grandma - can sometimes be the best thing to happen to your love life.

My friends got married. One by one, my amigas from childhood and BFF's from college walked down the aisle. They have families now. They don't have time to go out for a drink. And forget about telephone conversations; I'm lucky if we speak for five minutes…uninterrupted. Alas, that is life of many women who are married with children. The life of a single woman is different. Still challenging and busy, but different. Challenging? My married friends ask. Busy? They scoff. "But you only have to worry about you," a married friend once retorted. Yes, we single gals aren't on diaper duty while perhaps juggling careers, but our lives aren't easy either. Here are eight things married girlfriends don't understand about being single. -By Sujeiry GonzalezRead More »from Tied the Knot and Forgot: 8 Things Married People Don’t Understand About Being Single

Way to Boost Your LibidoKegels, schmegels... No one's ever worked this hard to get you off, and we aren't talking about your college boyfriend
Sexual health researchers are sweating bullets tackling science's next frontier, the female libido. What turns us from frosty femmes to breathy, toe-curling, spine-arching sexpots? And why do 42 percent of us have trouble flipping that switch, according to a recent study of 31,500 women? Help is on the way, in the form of a drug billed as the "female Viagra." In 1998, men went from limp to lusty with a pop of a pill. In early 2011, we could follow suit if Flibanserin - currently under FDA review - makes it to pharmacies. Till then, read our tips on staying revved up. Cue the Marvin Gaye ... (And if you're really feeling libido-less, check out sexbrainbody.com orsexandahealthieryou.org for help.)

Three women suing Merrill Lynch for gender discrimination say they were fired for failing to "seduce the boys club," the New York Post reports. Seriously: Female trainees were allegedly given copies of a book called Seducing the Boys Club: Uncensored Tactics From a Woman at the Top, and ordered to attend a lecture by author Nina DiSesa, the first female chairwoman at ad giant McCann Erickson. Other alleged girls-only duties included answering phones, being "perky" and "bubbly," and attending events on topics like "dressing for success" and "preparing healthy meals while working full-time." But the book alone would be enough to make a gal litigious.

Here's one way Eliot Spitzer can distinguish himself from Anthony Weiner in the minds of voters: While Carlos Danger had his beleaguered wife speak on his behalf as he casually admitted to another round of extramarital sexting, Spitzer confirmed on Thursday night that his wife Silda won't be joining him on the campaign trail. "I think it's fair to say I'm running for office. No other member of my family is running for office. And I think the public is going to judge me, not who else is with me or not with me," Spitzer told the Post. He noted, "She's got a career," but the paper claims it isn't Silda's job that's keeping her from shaking a few voters' hands, but the fact that she's on the verge of divorcing the former governor and prostitute enthusiast.

The Nine of Pentacles card suggests that the hard part is over. You've paid your dues and you have nothing to prove. Let the results speak for themselves and don't dirty your hands with idle, trendy or high maintenance indulgences like lovers who don't give back. Take appropriate precautions and nurture the finer things that are in tune with your needs and that faithfully satisfy multiple senses. Craft a flowing comfort zone, retreat, home or romantic paradise from these established simple pleasures or self-renewing efforts. Maintain self-confidence, self-control, independence and the art of being alone. Consistent feeding of your spirit creates a rich and replenished soul.
