Typecast As a Mom? Let Astrology Nurture Your Independence!
With Mother's Day just ahead this coming weekend, are you feeling a little frustrated being seen as simply a mom? You want to be yourself for once -- can your Sun sign help you carve out time to enjoy a bit of freedom and independence?
Since they don't tend toward domesticity in the first place, Aries has no problem making time for themselves. They're free spirits by nature, and they'd rather assert their individuality than be tied down. Because of this, the Ram is often a role model for other freedom-seeking signs!
Taurus enjoys the security of home and family -- especially because they get to exert more control over how everything runs. The Bull doesn't have the same urge for freedom as other signs. Rather, their identity comes from nurturing what makes them feel safe.
Wanderers at heart, Gemini knows that their independence comes from having a wide circle of friends. If they're not out and about, odds are you'll find them feeding their voracious appetite for reading. When they're

According to ancient wisdom, the white magnolia is considered a great symbol of purity. A single magnolia tree planted in a home's front garden is believed to attract love, happiness, and a sense of completion and contentment.
If grown in the back yard of a home, the magnolia is said to represent hidden gems and jewels, as well as the gradual accumulation of great wealth.
And since spring is always a popular season for nuptials, it's worth noting how Feng Shui masters have long believed that including magnolia blooms in a bridal bouquet will

Give Your Partner A Birthday Party Their Sun Sign Will Never Forget!Read More »from Give Your Partner a Birthday Party Their Sun Sign Will Never Forget!
Does your partner have a milestone birthday coming up? If so, are you wondering how you can give them -- and their Sun sign -- a celebration they'll never forget? Learn more now!
Aries won't appreciate a quiet family dinner with elderly relatives. No, they'll prefer a rowdy party with all their favorite friends and games aplenty. Rent a roulette wheel, get out the dartboard, and bring in a pool table. Food should be easy to grab, because your convivial Ram will be in constant motion all party long. A raucous barbecue would be ideal.
Taurus needs to be indulged, so amazing food and fancy drinks should be the main priority. Decorate the party location with plenty of flowers, classy tablecloths, and velvet cushions. After all, Taurus just loves to be pampered!
Gemini isn't concerned with having a fancy bash. Rather, what would warm their heart most would be to invite every friend they've ever had (and there'll be a lot). Those who can't come should be asked to write a birthday note or

Want to join the green parade on Earth Day today? Though there are many ways to celebrate this eco-holiday, you can maximize your planetary contribution by tuning into the skies above to help guide your environmentally minded actions. Your Sun sign offers not only clues on how to best nurture Mother Earth, but also suggestions for greening your life every day of the year!
Volcanos and hot, tropical climates bring out the fiery Earth warrior in you. Consider making a donation to protect the Amazon rainforest, or make a pilgrimage to a famous volcano to celebrate your own special connection to the planet.
Every day really is Earth Day for you, so you probably don't need to do much more to connect with the planet. If somehow you don't already have a garden, this is the ideal time to get one started!

Despite your best efforts to keep a smooth financial flow going in your life, how many times do you fail to set it straight? If you're willing to face your inner saboteur induced by quirks of your Sun sign's personality, you'll be halfway toward getting it right!
Just as you start to make progress on your spending-savings ratio, impulse buys and kamikaze spending habits can instantly set you back in the red. You love challenges, so try saving a quarter of your income over the next year. Put that Arian noggin to good use -- a penny saved is one Ram less burned.
Playing it too safe, putting all your eggs in one basket, or being loyal to a financial fault are just a few typical Taurus no-nos when it comes to avoiding monetary fiascos. Of course, with Taurus being the sign of money, it's rarely that dramatic. Rather, it's usually a slow draining of funds that happens over time when you refuse to bust a risky move.
