- Valentine's Day Horoscopes by Signs from Tarot.com's astrologer, Jeff Jawer!
Valentine's Day falls on a Friday in 2014, bringing extra opportunities to celebrate the romantic mood of this holiday ... which is intensified further by a Full Moon in dramatic Leo the same day!

Desiree Hartsock and Chris Siegfried
Capitalizing on the recently concluded "Juan-uary" Bachelor madness-which included the premiere of Juan Pablo's current Bachelor season, Trista and Ryan Sutter's 10-year-wedding-annivesary-slash-vow-renewal-special, and Sean Lowe and Catherine Giudici's televised wedding spectacular-last season's Bachelorette Desiree Hartsock announced that she's this close to setting her wedding date.
In an interview with Cupid's Pulse, Hartsock revealed that she and Chris Siegfried are looking into throwing a fall wedding, and like Sean and Catherine, she's not opposed to letting millions of TV viewers in on her big day. "We're open to having it televised and still planning for the fall," Harstock said.
She also revealed more details about her two wedding dresses, which she will be collaborating on with bridal design favorite Maggie Sottero. "Both dresses will reflect my personality in different ways," sheRead More »from Bachelorette Desiree Hartsock is About to Set Her Wedding Date (And It's Sooner Than You'd Expect!)

The Two of Pentacles card reversed suggests that it might be tempting to give up in the face of conflict or romantic stagnation, especially if it seems like you're facing a 'catch-22' or a 'lesser of two evils' decision. When it comes to your partner, you may not be on the same wavelength regarding this matter. There is a chance that one of you may be overcompensating for what may be perceived as a deficiency in material or financial considerations or in satisfying a hunger for physical indulgences or intimacy. Don't think you have to try to keep up with others to keep from looking foolish, or that if you keep smiling and going along, it will work out. While it may be a hassle or a struggle, making an effort to dance the fine line between practical realities and sensual pleasures can put you in position to resolve this issue.

February 14th is a day to celebrate being in love. February 15th is a day to celebrate being single. Have you ever heard of Singles Awareness Day (aka S.A.D.)? Check it out, it's a real thing! According to this Singles Awareness website, here's what the day is all about: "In response to the huge push by retailers for us to buy all of their candy, flowers and greeting cards, February 15 has been declared Singles Awareness Day! This is the day that all of the single people can proudly stand up and show that it is OKAY to be single! The goal of Singles Awareness Day is to let singles have celebrations, get-togethers, etc. and to exchange gifts with their single friends. The awareness day was established by single people who were just sick of feeling left out on Valentine's Day, and support of the day is growing every year."

Excuse us for a minute while we get very excited: Recently engaged style star (and one of our favorite MTV reality alums) Whitney Port just shared some new wedding planning details!
While at a Mindy Weiss-designed luncheon celebrating her recent engagement and wedding stationery collaboration with Wedding Paper Divas (where the Instagram snap, above, was taken), Port spoke to E! News about her pending nuptials. She unveiled that she's planning to host an outdoor destination wedding, complete with 150-200 guests, at the end of this year.
"I'm pretty sure we know where we're getting married, so the location kind of speaks for itself in terms of what kind of vibe it lends itself to," she told the entertainment news network. "I just have so many different ideas so I haven't quite pinned it all down yet."

As Valentine's Day approaches, couples everywhere contemplate taking their relationship to the next level. In some cases, this means moving in together, a big step worthy of celebration… and logistical concerns.
Whether you're moving into a new place together, or, moving in with your partner, follow these guidelines, and cohabitation will be smooth as can be.
1. Adhere to the 60/40 rule. If there's a male and female involved, the woman automatically gets at least 60 percent of the closet AND drawer space. I hate to be sexist, but if you want this move to go smoothly, do as I say.
2. Divvy up the drawers. Each adult needs at least three to four drawers in the bedroom. One for undergarments, one for socks, one for sleepwear, and possibly one for gym clothes/shorts/swimwear. Anything else can be folded on shelves.
3. Dump the duplicates. You don't need two sets of dishes, two cheese graters, two sets of steak knives… you get the picture. Pick the best,Read More »from 7 Tips for Moving in Together
