    Do You Take Financial Risks? Check Your Sun Sign!
    Wondering how your Sun sign inherently affects your relationship with money? Learn how to better understand what really drives your financial choices -- with a little help from the cosmos!

    Aries
    You're a risk-taker at heart, and you love a challenge. Sometimes you stretch due dates to add excitement to your otherwise dull money strategies. Try investing to keep things interesting -- without incurring late fees.

    Taurus
    You crave security and stability. Making sure essentials are provided for before you splurge is key for you, as you find any uncertainty about money to be extremely unsettling. You tend to hold onto stuff, so consider a garage sale to clear clutter -- and make a few dollars in the process!

    Gemini
    You're of two minds about most things -- and that includes finances. Set up parallel money plans with different time frames in order to keep your curiosity piqued and your mind active.

  • Saturn Direct in Scorpio: Inward and Onward

    Saturn Direct in Scorpio: Inward and Onward
    Today, taskmaster planet Saturn stations itself direct in the dark and fixed waters of Scorpio. Saturn has been retrograde since February, and during this time, it's asked you to integrate into your life all the change and loss that began as early as last October.

    Saturn rules the structures inherent in your life, as well as your integrity and any day-to-day issues such as business and bills. Now that you've had a solid five months to digest the lessons of Saturn's lengthy retrograde period, you're about to be asked to put all that wisdom into practice. Look to the houses Saturn rules in your birth chart to identify any areas on which you'll especially need to hone in.

  • Jupiter Enters Cancer: Wisdom of the Feminine

    Jupiter Enters Cancer: Wisdom of the Feminine
    Last week, Jupiter finally left the sign of its detriment, Gemini, and moved into its sign of exaltation, Cancer. This means that Jupiter's finest qualities -- wisdom, expansion, opening -- will now express beautifully through the sensitive and nurturing waters of Cancer through July 2014!

    After a year of doing time in so-many-choices-it-makes-your-head-spin Gemini, Jupiter's entrance into Cancer is a welcome shower of emotional healing -- a return to your gut instincts. Instead of spinning your wheels and never quite coming up with a viable answer, you can now delve more deeply into your core and connect on an instinctual level with what really nourishes your soul.

    Whenever I think of heat, as I often do in July (who doesn't?), I sometimes also think of getting hot under the collar. External heat can sometimes lend itself to internal overheating, so this month I'd like to share a "many blessings meditation" to help cool down potentially heated situations!

    To begin your meditation, find a cool and quiet place where you won't be disturbed for approximately ten minutes. Then, make yourself comfortable by either sitting or laying down with your back straight and your shoulders and neck relaxed.

  • How Your Sun Sign Impacts Your Beauty Routine

    How Your Sun Sign Impacts Your Beauty Routine
    Whether it's for others or simply for ourselves, each of our Sun signs takes a different approach to looking good. How do the qualities of your own sign impact your beauty routine? Learn more now!

    Aries: Low-key.
    You're fuss-free and low-maintenance. Fast beauty fixes appeal to you since you've got too much else to do to spend time primping and preening.

    Taurus: High-maintenance, mostly for comfort.
    You love being pampered and, since you're the most tactile sign of the zodiac, you enjoy all kinds of beauty and grooming treatments. Plan a spa day every month to indulge yourself.

    Gemini: Low-key ... but curious.
    Color and fun are your beauty motivations. Keep makeup to a minimum, but experiment with hues, especially on your nails. Rings, bracelets, and necklaces are key for you.

    Cancer: Low-key -- as long as it feels good.
    Comfort is more important to you than looking like a beauty queen, so opt for easy-to-use products in neutral colors. Sentimental jewelry soothes your spirit.

  • Your Sun Sign's Role in Balancing Work and Play

    Your Sun Sign's Role in Balancing Work and Play

    While work offers you a sense of purpose, taking time out plays a crucial role in refreshing your spirit. Enjoy the following tips designed to help your Sun sign create a healthy balance between work and play!

    Aries
    Burn off excessive energy or frustration with intense workouts. At work, break down large tasks into small objectives, then race the clock to get them done -- it's no secret you work best under pressure.

    Taurus
    Pleasure and pampering are your best rewards after a long day at work. Schedule monthly massages or beauty treatments; DIY methods at home will do the trick as well.

    Gemini
    Socializing activities such as trivia or comedy nights help you unwind after intense workdays. Isolating yourself isn't ideal for you, so head out at least once a week with friends.

    Cancer
    Home-cooked meals with close friends or family help you put your work pressures in proper perspective. Frequent quality time with those in your inner circle is key to your well-being.

    What's Your Sun Sign's Decorating Style?

    Whether you prefer a minimalist look or an abode full of mementos, decorating according to your Sun sign's natural style will help you truly feel at home. Astrology can help you discover the key ingredient to making your home reflect your true self!

    Aries: Function.
    Storage must be efficient and easy to access. You simply don't have the patience to fuss with time-consuming details. To match your endless energy, decorate with bold and bright colors.

    Taurus: Comfort.
    Go ahead and splurge on big-ticket items such as a sofa and bed. Quality counts, while natural fibers create a relaxing environment for you. Earthy tones and soft neutrals are ideal. Donate what you no longer use to keep things fresh.

    Gemini: Communication.
    Upgrade your in-home technology to be as streamlined and multi-functional as possible. Consider wall mounts for TV-computer screens, and invest in speedy Internet connectivity.
