Venus in Virgo: A Time for Reflection
Venus influences the way you relate to others, as well as what you find most beautiful in the world. And whenever Venus takes up residence in earthy Virgo -- as it did last week -- you're bound to feel more related to practical matters such as work, health, and your daily routine.
It may sound a bit dull if you're a romantic -- Virgo is the opposite sign of glamour-adoring Pisces -- but Venus's tenure in Virgo signals an excellent time to fall in love with the simplicity of your daily regimen. You may crave more time alone so you can catch up on sleep and devote additional attention to details. Furthermore, work will feel more satisfying if you apply yourself wholeheartedly, as honoring your need to hone and perfect your craft can prove to be immensely healing now.

Fiery Mars in Adventurous Sagittarius: Anything Goes!Read More »from Fiery Mars in Adventurous Sagittarius: Anything Goes!
This past Sunday, October 7, Mars entered the wanderlust sign of Sagittarius, a transit that represents one of the more restless positions for the tempestuous planet of war. Between now and November 16, Mars wants to run free, untethered to anything small, petty, or mundane -- all while firing up the sign of the Archer!
Physical outlets are crucial during this time, so if all else fails and you feel overwhelmingly pent up, take a brisk run around the block before you bite someone's head off! Anger can escalate quickly now, but as long as no one adds fuel to the fire, you can also burn through frustration more quickly than usual. Sagittarius is not known for being particularly patient or tactful, so expect plenty of blunt confrontations. And remember: If you can't take it, don't dish it out, because anything goes under this transit that infamously favors between-the-eyes honesty!

Mercury Enters Scorpio: Secrets and ScandalsRead More »from Mercury Enters Scorpio: Secrets and Scandals
Tomorrow, October 5, sees Mercury move into Scorpio through October 28, so forget about making small talk and make sure your lips are sealed! Scorpio is all about keeping secrets and taking them to the grave. Now more than ever, confidentiality is a must when dealing with matters of sex, life, and death.
Once Mercury -- the messenger planet that rules your mind and communication style -- enters Scorpio's deep and psychological waters, it's time to dig into life's mysteries and uncover any and all scandals, for better or worse. Under this cosmic influence, issues that may normally feel too off-limits or controversial now become perfect conversation topics. Superficial topics (and responses) will be shunned, so be prepared to go deep into the heart of matters.

Does Your Sun Sign Make You a Rock-solid Friend?Read More »from Does Your Sun Sign Make You a Rock-Solid Friend?
When a dear friend is suffering through a difficult situation, are you there for them? Your Sun sign plays a significant role in your ability to provide a shoulder for others to lean on.
Aries will attempt to pull their friend out of depression by suggesting diversions ... but this may not quite do the trick. What most bereaving folks look for in a time of need is empathy -- which isn't exactly Aries's strongest trait.
Taurus can be a real rock to lean on during an emotional crisis, since they offer a calming sense of continuity. After all, "life goes on" is their motto. They'll offer a strong shoulder for a time, although they may grow impatient if the misery drags on longer than they think is appropriate.
Gemini can supply enough verbal motivation to fill ten self-help books, but they're never quite sure how to handle a flood of tears. They're wary of their own feelings, so they'll eventually back off to make sure they don't drown in someone else's torrent of intense emotion.
Considering Self-Employment? Check Your Sign!Read More »from Considering Self-Employment? Check Your Sign!
Some Sun signs are corporate-minded and prefer organizational structure, while others positively flourish when left to their own devices. In an era when contracting or freelancing is sometimes the only option, here's how you might consider giving self-employment a shot!
Aries doesn't operate well in isolation. They need the input and camaraderie that colleagues offer, so they're best off finding a business where there's a partner (or even a friendly competitor) in tow.
Taurus adores working at home, although motivation may turn into a problem. They're geared toward design and are good with people, so a business with a solid clientele will keep them on schedule.
Gemini enjoys working with people, and would probably explode if left to a full day without opportunities to chat. Any home business they pursue needs a good deal of interaction -- and a few travel opportunities wouldn't hurt, either.
Cancer, though very home-centric, enjoys working around others. A freelance business requiring
How Astrology Affects Your Spending HabitsRead More »from How Astrology Affects Your Spending Habits
Every sign have its special extravagances -- things worth buying without a second thought given. Then there are other items certain signs would never dream of spending a dime on without being pushed. What's your money mojo?
You love adventure -- romantic or otherwise -- so if it's going to bring a spark of excitement, you won't hold back for a second. It's the dreary practical things like toothbrushes and garbage bags you really resent.
You love indulgence -- as well as practicality. If it's for eating, drinking, or smelling divine, or if it has a useful purpose, you'll bring it home without thinking twice. But you just don't see the sense in shelling out for dreadfully overpriced designer labels just to impress others.
The Twins go for books, tech gizmos, and anything else that helps fill their heads (all two of them) with information. Sentimental knick-knacks for anniversaries and birthdays don't do much to excite you ... and neither do dreary domestic items

Are You Built for Commitment? The Stars Hold the Answer!Read More »from Are You Built for Commitment? Your Sign Holds the Answer!
Some signs are better suited to committed relationships than others. Rather than your Sun sign (which describes your personality), it's your love planet -- Venus, Mars, or the Moon -- that most accurately points out your love needs and can help you figure out if you lean more towards commitment or independence.

Taurus, Leo, Scorpio
These three Fixed signs are loyal and, when it comes to love, definitely in it for the long haul. Indeed, Taurus, Leo, and Scorpio prefer steady, stable relationships. They're happy to commit, but it may take time for them to make long-term promises. Once they do, though, they'll stick by their partner through thick and thin.

How Your Moon Sign Influences Your Eating HabitsRead More »from How Your Moon Sign Influences Your Eating Habits
Since the Moon rules the stomach and digestion, it greatly influences your health and eating habits. Exploring the element of your Moon sign can help reveal your most personal tastes, as well as what works for you -- and what troubles you -- when it comes to food.
(See below to learn how you can quickly determine your Moon sign!)
Fire sign Moons: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
Fire symbolizes heat, so flavorful, spicy foods are the top preference for Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius. Garlic, ginger, and chile pepper add the intensity you crave. Focus on high-nutrient foods, such as fresh fruit and vegetables, to squeeze maximum fuel from the least amount of calories. Fire is linked to energy, which comes via iron-rich foods -- typically meats and dark green vegetables.

What's the Best Pet for Your Sun Sign?Read More »from What's the Best Pet for Your Sun Sign?
Certain astrological signs are well suited for sharing their home with an animal; others, less so. If you're considering getting a pet or expanding your animal family, learn what your Sun sign suggests is the best choice for you!
Traditionally, Aries, Taurus, Leo, Sagittarius, and Capricorn are each linked to animals. It's no surprise, then, that these signs are collectively known as the "signs of the beasts"! If you're one of these signs, you'll flourish living with a pet, especially a four-legged kind such as a cat or dog.

Gemini, Libra, Aquarius, and Virgo are known for the emphasis they place on humanity, so if you're one of these signs, it's highly likely that human contact is more important to you than pet company most of the time. That said, talking birds can be a great fit, especially for Air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius). Earth sign Virgo,
