Angelina Jolie, despite the fact that she was not a nominee, was the talk of the Academy Awards. There was the whole Leg Thrusting Debacle — the actress was quite dramatic about using the high slit on her dress to display her right leg — but the blogosphere was also exploding with comments and questions about her weight. Namely, that she looked “gaunt,” “too skinny,” and “shrinking,” with many crowing that she should “eat a cheeseburger” and “put a lil’ more meat on those bones.”
I will admit to being one of those people who commented on her being too thin. I’ve been thinking about that reaction though, and am disappointed in myself for snarking on her weight. Keep reading »
Every astrological sign has good and bad qualities. Last week we gave you seven glowing compliments about each sign. This week, do you dare to read about your bad qualities? Just as astrology can be a warm and fuzzy reminder about how awesome we are, it also gives us a chance to reflect on the things we might want to improve on. If you think you can handle it, click through to check out the top three not-so-nice things about each sign…
Pisces (February 20-March 20): If you can’t fight the system, you can at least fight to find a sense of peace within and learn to live with the challenges you face. After all, what is life without the uphill climbs and the sweetness of coasting down the hill and enjoying its breeze? Yes, take this week head on, as it’s the only way to gain momentum towards a pleasant resolution.
Aries (March 21-April 19): The world can revolve around you if you set the pace. So, speed it up and stir up that energy, as only you can generate this positive power. If you accelerate the ideas and the actions, all else will follow. However, you must be prudent in monitoring all your irons in the fire, as it can result in one hot explosion. Keep reading »
Astrology can be a powerful tool to better understand yourself, but it’s also a fun reminder of the great qualities each of us possess. I’ve teamed up with astrologer extraordinaire Katelyn Kollinzas to compile a list of things that make each sign uniquely awesome. Whether you’re astrology-obsessed or just curious, check out your zodiac love letter for a little confidence boost. And, of course, tune in next week when we explore the not-so-awesome side of each sign!
Pisces (February 20-March 20): Rise above and let things fall to the wayside naturally. After all, you should never have to fight that hard to make something yours, if it is really yours. While it might be painful, the shedding of the skin will have its rewards, as when this process is over, you will feel the lightness of all possibilities once again.
Aries (March 21-April 19): You can’t expect people to change and if you do, then shame on you. As the next week starts to unfold, you will have to deal with the same ol’ issued you’ve dealt with in the past, but this time around, you will be feeling more fed up than ever. So, what does this mean? Time to really sit down, sort out what you want and stop this cycle from happening again. Keep reading »
Aquarius (January 20-February 19): There is only so much you can do to make people be more honest with you. If they’re going to be jerks, then you just have to see it for what it’s worth and go with it. Otherwise, trying to reform anyone now will only make you lose your mind and your faith in humanity. Don’t let that one a-hole ruin your party!

Be prudent about the circumstances you’re in and what kind of words you use to compensate for something that might not be there. In the end, the truth will always catch up to you, so realize sugarcoating things now will only lead to decay. Keep reading »
