The Nine of Chalices card reversed suggests that it might be time to come off the sidelines or out of the comfort zone. Deal with loss, resentment, a break down in communication or some other issue that might be affecting intimacy, self-acceptance, or gratification in your love life. This could be a dramatic turning point and might even bring a certain amount of relief. Ultimately, with little left to lose, this upset could create an opening for you to let go of old, constraining circumstances and surround yourself with what really matters. Afterward, you can conquer the mess or clean up your act while honoring your experience. You can then put it behind you once and for all and be free to be receptive to the joy, pleasures and love you deserve.

Truly one of the only times in our lives that we'll consult and trust the Farmer's Almanac is when we're predicting the weather on our wedding day. When else are you going to check the forecast for the third Saturday in June when it's only April? It might sound silly to some, but as brides, we know we can never be too prepared! And, GASP (!), what would happen if it did rain on one of the most important days of your life? Well, besides the old wives' tale of rain being good luck for weddings, we think embracing the downpour can be fun and romantic. And think of all the wonderfully unique photos you'll have to remind you of the day you said "I do" under an umbrella. Check out the slideshow for some of our favorite images from rainy day weddings.

There are lots of random, unconventional ways to make money when you're in college and in your twenties.
-1. Sell your stuff on craigslist (varies based on the quality of your stuff- $1-$1,000s, but you have to endure potentially weird people coming to your house)
-2. Sell your services (like tutoring or dog walking!- ahem) on craigslist (varies on your talent- $25-$200 per hour, but you have to put in the work)
-3. Sell your sperm and eggs (About $50 for sperm… if you pass the intense pre-qualifying requirements. About $8,000 for eggs- but first you go through an extensive background check, therapy, hormone shots, daily ultrasounds and an egg retrieval surgery)
-4. Post a 30-second video of yourself on a website where people vote on how "eligible" you are ($100)

Regardless of how men treat us, sometimes we just have to look at ourselves and our actions and realize, "Oh gosh, I'm being the Crazy Girl," says Jessica Massa in her book The Gaggle: How to Find Love in a Post-Dating World. Do any of the following sound familiar?
- You check out the Facebook page of every girl he's added as a friend-and let's not even get started on girls who post on his wall!
- You leave an article of clothing at his house to see if he mentions it without being prompted.
- You secretly check his phone or email to see who else he is talking to.
- You demand that he not hang out with his friends, family, or any girl who comes within a ten-foot radius of him.
- You fight with him in front of other people.
- You trick him into meeting up with you under false pretenses.
- You time how long he takes to text you back and have a set average in your head. More than two hours, and he must be with another girl!
- You count his condoms.
- You respond

Last year for Mother's Day, I got my wife one of those machines that make seltzer water. I thought it was pretty cool, 'cause it has this canister of compressed air that you slot into it, and when you "seltzer-ize" water, the machine makes this fantastic noise, like a sick goose is honking up phlegm in your kitchen! My wife was less than excited. "But you love seltzer," I said. "And now you'll never have to buy it, or wish we had it around. You can make your own!" "Brian, it's an appliance." And that, my friends, is how I learned: There are some presents that, no matter how much they make sense to you, are not appropriate for Mother's Day! So that you don't make the same mistake I did, I hereby present to you my guide for what NOT to buy that special mom in your life. - By Brian Gresko

Moving in with your partner is not like trying a side part. It's a BFD and you should really think it through before you take the plunge. Below are six essential tips, gathered from relationship experts and seasoned friends, to consider before sharing a lease with your lover.
1. The "Talk"
An essential question to ask yourself before moving in together, is WHY? Why are you doing this? Is it out of financial convenience? Is this a step toward marriage? Whatever the reason is, make sure you are in sync. Remember on Girls when Shoshanna suddenly realized that her boyfriend, Ray, basically moved in even though they never discussed it? Let's all learn from Shosh and not let a guy twice our

If someone were to ask me what makes me happy, my answer would most likely vary depending on the day. The obvious answer would be being a mama to my two girls. While I love being a mother nothing makes me happier than being their mama. It always feels like God handpicked us for each other. Although being a parent can be scary and challenging nothing has brought me more joy.
Another obvious answer would be being married to my husband. We annoy each other sometimes but we truly love each other and one of the things that I love about him is that he genuinely wants me to be happy. We both want that for each other. Other things that make me happy - smiling children, dessert, puppy breath, the sale section at Anthropologie, reading something that evokes emotion and making a difference in the life of another human being (and that's just my short list).
I wouldn't say my husband mopping the floor makes me happy or the fact that he cooked dinner last night so I could rest my stillRead More »from New Study Shows How Husbands Can Make Their Wives Happier
