The Empress card suggests that if you are overly focused on domestic responsibilities or other people's needs, then now is a good time to consider taking the initiative and indulging your prerogative, for you could be ripe for a little romance or passion. As long as your heart is in the right place and your intentions are good, it's okay to accept and enjoy a little goddess worship.

Although our love for our spouses is not based on how much they get on our nerves, the reality is that some things are hard to ignore. Most often we can close our eyes, make a wish, count to 10, or do whatever it is we do to cope, only to find that the man we married is still the same man he was 10 seconds ago. And those crumbs? Yup, they're still on the counter.

Wedding season is upon us! Before you know it, your mailbox will be sprinkled with save-the-dates, bridal-shower invitations, and wedding invites - if it isn't already. Your mission, should you choose to RSVP, is to be the best wedding guest ever. The kind the couple will want to have there beside them on the day and in the wedding photos as they reminisce in years to come. The kind whose thank-you card won't somehow get "lost" in the mail.

Let's face it, most of us would like to get a better handle on the where's, when's, why's and how's of love. And now that neuroscience is starting to tackle questions that were previously left to poets and philosophers, there's a glut of love and sex advice out there-supposedly guaranteed by the objectivity of cold, hard science.

Try to avoid saying these things to a heart-broken friend.By Chiara Atik for HowAboutWeRead More »from The Five Worst Things to Say to Someone Who Just Went Through a Break-Up
Julie Klausner gave some advice on her most recent podcast of what not to say to a friend going through a break-up: "Don't say now's the time to learn a new language."
