    Let Astrology Help You Know Your Dad Better This Father's Day!
    If you want to grow closer to your dad this Father's Day, it's important to figure out what makes him tick. By exploring his Sun sign, you can discover how to develop a stronger, more satisfying relationship with your dad!

    Aries
    The Aries dad is at his best when active, so spend time with him while exercising, or perhaps attend a sporting event together. The fiery Aries father is the brave and courageous sort, so listen to him talk about past victories since he loves to share stories of his success.

    Taurus
    Traditional and stable, the Taurus dad likely always has time for you. Since he enjoys quiet time above conversation, find a sunny day and try doing some gardening or yard work with him. This earthy father also loves to eat, so invite him over for a meal of his favorite comfort food.

  • Neptune Retrograde in Pisces: Redemption Time

    Neptune Retrograde in Pisces: Redemption Time

    Neptune -- the planet responsible for submerging you into dreams, illusion, glamour, and delusions -- went retrograde in its home turf of Pisces last Friday. The next 22-plus weeks now present an opportunity to confront any areas of your life where you've been living in denial, so the time is right to examine your favorite modes of escapism, as well as any potentially deep emotional caves you've been avoiding.

    Neptune's retrograde is an ideal time to connect back to your spirit and your unconscious in a powerful way. You're more likely at this time to turn your mind away from logic and reasoning, and instead towards creativity, mysticism, symbolism, and subtle energy. If you have strong Pisces, Neptune, or twelfth house energies in your birth chart, you'll feel this shift profoundly and may even become overwhelmingly sensitive.

  • Venus Enters Cancer: Nostalgic Love

    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!

    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!

    Aries
    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!

    Taurus
    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!

    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 Sign

    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
    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!

    Taurus
    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.

    Gemini
    Gemini is a true Air sign

  • Can Your Sun Sign Handle a Job Promotion?

    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
