How your sun sign can help you set boundaries with others
Though it's certainly important to be there for those you love, do you feel as if others sometimes have the tendency to take advantage of your kindness? Are there people in your life who are often in need, yet unwilling to do the slightest thing to help themselves? Learn how to use your Sun sign to disarm anyone who threatens to usurp your energy!
Among all the Sun signs, you're least likely to succumb to an energy vampire. You may feel tempted to be a hero by rescuing someone who's playing the victim ... but you'll encourage them to rescue themselves instead.

Mercury retrograde: think before you speak!Read More »from Mercury Retrograde: Think Before You Speak!
Expect rampant foot-in-mouth syndrome during Mercury's retrograde period in Sagittarius, November 24 - December 14. Not only will you be more inclined to speak before you think, but even your most innocent comments could well be misconstrued. Snafus galore will be par for the course during this transit -- and under the domain of the Archer, your blunders will be all out in the open!
At times like this, humor can go awry, so make sure your jokes translate and are not ill-timed. Missives that seem hilarious to you may fall flat -- or worse, seem offensive to the receiver. Consider your words carefully and weed out anything that sounds brash, judgmental or preachy. One minute, you may think you're just horsing around; the next minute, you've alienated someone.

A sign-by-sign survival guide to ThanksgivingRead More »from A Sign-by-sign Survival Guide to Thanksgiving
Not that you need a Thanksgiving survival guide, but because you're grateful for your family -- grateful they don't live with you year-round! -- here's a sign-by-sign rundown of how to approach Turkey Day this year. Keep your attitude of gratitude ... and hopefully also your sanity!
ARIES: Circulate your blood.
That's what keeps it from boiling, you know. It's easy to forego physical activity as you tend to the meals, clean-up and extra needs that come with family gatherings. But you'll be in better spirits if you remember to prioritize your workout.
TAURUS: Be a master of focus.
Not your own focus -- rather, that of your guests. You have more control over it than you think. Need we remind you that you're the Earth sign grounding influence for your group? Bring their focus to the wonderful food, the lovely scent of pumpkin pie and how lucky you are to enjoy it all with your loved ones.
GEMINI: Get trendy.
You're always in a good mood when you're trying something new. Whether it's

Solar eclipse in Sagittarius: make the most of Thanksgiving!Read More »from Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius: Make the Most of Thanksgiving!
Thanksgiving Day this year sees a solar eclipse in Sagittarius, so let its exuberant energy help you turn tight funds into a fun feast with loved ones. Don't let a shortage of cash get in the way of everyone's fun (and appetite)!
Aries will bring out old holiday mementos, ornaments and outfits to give their celebration a homey theme at very little cost. As always, their enthusiasm will be infectious.
Similarly, Taurus will dig eagerly for holiday trinkets that have been hidden away over the years ... and they'll be delighted with their discoveries!
Gemini will realize that the only thing that really matters is love. The eclipse in their opposite sign of partnerships will make them happy just to snuggle with their partner.
As usual, Cancer's role will be one of nurturing. They normally like to add a touch of luxury, but in today's tough times, they'll be happy just to be of service to others.

Use your astrological element to better understand your sibling!Read More »from Use Your Astrological Element to Better Understand Your Sibling!
Understanding the element that rules your sibling can help you strengthen your common bond. After all, wouldn't you rather enjoy each other's company than fall into the trap of having the same old, triggered arguments? No one has a shared history quite like you and your sibling!
Fire sibling: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
Fire siblings are active, feisty and able to deal well with tension. They have a competitive side and can become bored easily, so sports or other physical activities are ideal ways to connect. You'll find it easiest to get along with a Fire sibling if you're an Air sign.
Earth sibling: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn
Earth siblings are practical, conservative, reliable and very aware of timeliness. They're also dependable and have a deep liking for the physical world, so spending time outdoors, at a spa, cooking or gardening together is a terrific way for the two of you to bond. They crave stability to feel safe. Earth siblings are easiest to relate to if you're a Water sign.
People all over the world are trying to find meaning in the symmetry of Friday's date, November 11, 2011. The numbers 11.11.11 seem to speak of some marvelous, mysterious meaning. Hollywood will be giving us another nightmare of a movie, 11-11-11, which insists, "The end is now", whereas new agers are viewing this day as an energy gateway to spiritual dimensions and global unity.
So on the continuum of cultural meaning, how can the rest of us look at this imagined marker for change?
You can rest assured that 11.11.11 will not be the end of anything -- neither time nor the world. The date is based on the western Gregorian calendar, introduced by Pope Gregory XIII in 1582. Other cultures used other calendars, so we are not seeing a cosmic marker here, but rather a cultural one.

Rams love a challenge. After all, you could probably buy a fixer-upper and flip it into a profit. However, don't expect things to go smoothly, for Aries people have a knack for attracting all kinds of obstacles. Your best bet is to tackle as many projects as you can handle on your own; only hire contractors you can rely on. Otherwise, sparks might fly!
You love beautiful things and appreciate the finer things in life. Bulls also have a strong connection to nature, so don't hesitate to bring natural elements into your home -- hardwood floors, cherry furniture and leaf prints are just a few ideas. While you're at it, go ahead and splurge on some key pieces that could double as investments.

"If you realize that all things change, there is nothing you will try to hold on to. If you are not afraid of dying, there is nothing you cannot achieve."
When the Sun shifts gears on October 23 from the sign of equilibrium, Libra, into Scorpio's dark and dramatic waters, we must all heed the call to excess. Forget about mediocrity or middle ground -- such tame temperance has no place in the realm of Scorpio!
Get ready, as we are all about to go off the deep end. How else can we truly know what it means to hit bottom?
