    For The Week Of February 2-8, 2009

    Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

    You can’t be everything to everybody and even if you could, would you really want to? No. People are ungrateful and you’d be wasting your time. For now, this is the slogan and this is the reason why you need to put those efforts back into yourself. Work up a sweat at the gym, as it’ll be the best and only place you’ll see results

    Libra (September 23 – October 22)

    If you want to get what you want, you’re going to have to get pushy—but not in the obvious way. This means moving ahead of your competition or who ever is bugging the hell out of you, to put them in their place. Yes, this week will launch a bit of a soap opera theme to your life, but whatever, at least you’ll know you’re the star.

    Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

    Sunlight deficiency is a bitch, especially when it comes to a nocturnal creature like you. Although you’ll be feeling less motivated to get out and about, this will be your time to make a concerted effort to start switching up your routines and trying out new habits, as being a vegetable right now is the biggest curse you can place on yourself.

    Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

    Your mind will be racing along at twice the speed and this will mean coming up with many hair-brained schemes. Whatever bizarre ideas you dream of, explore it. You’ll be way ahead of yourself and with this energy; it’ll put you in prime position to magnetize a few odd, but worthy, options.

    Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

    Time to bust out the new man on your friends. Enough of trying to sort out the picture alone — what fun is that? You need a few trusted opinions to seal the deal. Chances are if you take the plunge now, things will fall into place easier — as in scheduling one big meet and greet, rather than sporadic one-on-ones that’ll only breed a chain of preconceived notions.

    Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

    When it comes to all matters of power and love, this is when you’re going to be able to take the reins and call the shots as you see them. However, be clear about stating your case, as in not wasting time barking up the wrong tree because once you start setting the demands, it won’t take too long to see who is with you or who isn’t.

    Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

    When you love, there is no holding you back. You give all of yourself and want to get the same indulged feeling back. This week, go all out on taking it in, because the love will be there for you. In fact, the more you get lost in it, the higher your creativity will soar and the more you will feel in your element. The catch, this source might need to stay secret for now.

    Aries (March 21 – April 19)

    If you want anything done this week, you’re going to have to get into the trenches and work it yourself. Sure, friends are there to help, kind of, but they’ll be more focused on their own agenda than being able to do exactly as you say — so don’t rely too much on their advice or favors. This week, seize and conquer on your own.

    Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

    Your patience runs thin and there’ll be no more making excuses for having your kindness exploited. Time to stop it dead in its tracks, come to grips that you are not at your best and rectify the situation. This will mean some big changes, but really, making a decision is the hardest step to make. From there, hire movers to do the rest.

    Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

    A feeling of wanderlust is going to hit and removing yourself from your current environment in any way will do wonders for raising your chances at a spiritual catharsis that can set your world straight. If no such opportunity arises, then it’ll be up to you to make it happen. If this means finding yourself a foreign sex partner for the week, that’ll also do.

    Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

    Take a deep breath and take one day at a time. Seems you will be your own worst enemy this week, as your ability to create paranoias and think up insane scenarios will be at peak levels. The odd thing about it though, it will give you a lot more energy to run from your demons, which can turn out just right if you happen to be darting off in the right direction.

    Leo (July 23 – August 22)

    Watch out for a tumultuous turn in your love affairs, as your honey will be feeling way more agitated and you’ll seem to rub each other in all the wrong ways. However, a little tension won’t kill anything, but if you take the high route and use it for good, it can be just the way to reignite the sparks back into the boudoir to put you back in sync, at least sexually speaking.

    Super Bowl Silliness: What Does Your Favorite Chicken Wing Flavor Say About You?

    Chances are, if you’re watching the Super Bowl, you or someone watching it with you, is eating chicken wings. What flavor you’re eating can be super revealing — or so we like to think. After the jump, what your favorite wing flavor says about you… Keep reading »

    10 Chick Flick Cliches That Are NOT In “He’s Just Not That Into You”

    You know what? I know that everyone and their mom is going to hate on the movie version of “He’s Just Not That Into You.” Maybe there was a reason to hate on the book — I don’t know, I didn’t read it — but this movie looks funny. For starters, I love Ginnifer Goodwin; I also have been known to stare at a cell phone for over an hour, willing it to ring (with a call from a guy I totally love); I also have spent many, many years making crap excuses for bad boy behavior because I just didn’t want to recognize that maybe he was either A) a douche or B) a perfectly fine who was just not that into me. Am I betraying women everywhere for admitting to that? I don’t think so. Anyway, in the hilarious video above, the male stars of the film explain the 10 Chick Flick Cliches that are NOT in this particular chick flick. So you could technically maybe bring a dude to it. Only I wouldn’t, if you ever want to hear from him again. Keep reading »

    You Go Girl: Female Merit Badges

    Artist Mary Yeager has created a line of “Female Merit Badges” which resemble Girl Scout Merit Badges, but represent female rites of passage like childbirth, inserting a tampon, breast exams, and birth control pills. While you can’t order the individual patches to sew onto your awesome Army jacket (What? You don’t have one?), you can order a full color poster which features 28 of the patches.

    DIY: Instant Art

    Looking to make your cell of an apartment a little less depressing without pissing off your crotchety landlord? Painting your blues away will also mean kissing your deposit good bye and those N’Sync posters are kind of unacceptable at this point. So what’s a budget-conscious girl to do?

    Though the options outside of boy bands and large scale art are admittedly slim, check out Kate’s Paperie or Papyrus for vintage-looking wrapping paper sheets worthy of framing. Blown up maps and post cards, old school anatomy textbook images and embarrassing ’70s yearbook pictures are looking for a home at less than $4.50 a pop.

    Slide the poster-sized sheets into cheap as hell frames from A.I. Friedman and just wait for your friends to jealously ask where you got your new art. Be sure to tell them it’s from a gallery in SoHo or Paris. Feeling just a tad superior is half the fun. Keep reading »

    Dress Up Your Downstairs

    Apparently it’s not enough just to get a bikini wax anymore. No, now you have to adorn your lady parts. Completely Bare Spas are now offering their Opulent Bikini Wax at their six locations. It includes: a wax, followed by a 24k gold spray and Swarovski crystal decorations (you can either get a heart of your significant other’s initials). Oh, and if you’re single but don’t want to miss out on the waxing fun, you can get a broken heart or a skull and crossbones instead. [Couture In The City] Keep reading »

    Forget Significant Others, Give Yourself A Valentine’s Day Present

    Valentine’s Day is mere weeks away, and if you’re in a relationship, don’t expect to get much in the way of presents. A study found that couples are expected to spend nearly 17 percent less on gifts and Valentine’s Day merchandise compared with 2008, or an average of $102.50. With skimpy Valentine’s Day gifts expected among couples, it’s not a bad time to be single. You don’t need to waste your hard-earned cash on a nice present when you might not get something of equal value (or anything you like) in return. You don’t have to spend money on new lingerie, sexy dresses, or bikini waxes. And you don’t have to throw away dough on sex toys, teddy bears holding roses, or boxes of chocolates. Why don’t you celebrate yourself and take the $102.50 or whatever amount you would have used to buy a present and buy yourself something you like. Not only have you been saving money by not being in a relationship, but we buy ourselves the best presents anyway. Keep reading »

    Hot Outta The Oven: Class Up Your Super Bowl Menu

    Alright, ladies, 7-layer dip and a case of Bud was a perfectly swell Super Bowl spread back when everyone crowded around the TV on your bean bag and futon. But now that you’ve upped your style (and upgraded your digs) why not kick up your menu a notch? Don’t worry, we’re not trading out chicken wings for caviar. But thanks to recipes from Wolfgang Puck and other star chefs, you can add a touch of gourmet to your “Game Day” staples… Keep reading »
