For The Week Of August 22-28, 2011

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Time to start assessing where exactly you stand on all the things that matter, as it’s time to discern if it’s going to be one of those long winters or not. Chances are you will like what you see, but on the small chance it’s not, that just means you’ll have to hustle a little harder, as there is still some time left on the clock.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Despite what you might hear, you are going to have to pay attention to your intuition, as it’s going to be at its peak now and can lead you out of pending despair — if you bravely face the truth and its consequences. Yes, we’d all like to see the world with rose-colored glasses, right now, you should know that point of view will eventually catch up with you in a bad way.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

You aren’t one to trust everything you hear, especially when there’s so much information coming at you. However, you know you’re not one to get sucked into vapid sweet talk either, so do know these facts will add up in your favor and it’s about you believing it. So, your task for this week is understanding that your fear of being a sucker is as big as your fear of accepting the truth.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

You’re near the finish line of a tumultuous cycle and all will start to feel a lot rosier this week. If you’ve been putting forth towards your dreams in the bigger sense, then this will be the time when rewards will start to roll in and you’ll understand your calling in a bigger sense. You know it, feeling good is going to be a more intense sensation, inside and out!

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

You can’t care what anyone else wants. If this means going all out selfish and closing off the world to just do what you want, then so be it. It’s not like you’ll be icing them out forever, but sometimes that nagging is just too much and for some reason the people around you just don’t understand the word “No.” Thankfully, though, they will understand a closed door in their face.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

We all love dirty little secrets when shared by that one and only, which is why this week will be so special, as those trust issues that have been driving you a bit batty over the course of your latest tryst finally get settled with a big bang. Yes, that key to that mystical land called trust will become yours; so don’t screw it up now by being judgmental about what you hear.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

You can’t be everything to everyone, but you can always count on being good to yourself will put a smile on your face. So, as this week becomes all about being-with-my-baby-and-no-else-will-matter, know it won’t make you too popular with anyone but your baby. However, you can’t feel guilty for your pleasures, because as it goes, you need to get it good while the good can be got!

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Embrace practicality, organization and routine as your new tenets, because you’ll have no time for much else anyway. However, this is more of an attitude that you’ll need to adopt, rather than a indication of this week’s pressures —this is your time to start revving up your engine, but until you light that spark inside, nothing is going to happen.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Not everything has to make sense, least of all love. Seems just about anything can surprise you now, as something way out of the ordinary will start to float your boat in that scheming, horny devilish way. Yes, a new attraction will hit, bringing out that darker and lustier side in you — and you’ll love it.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

There are endless excuses to evade the truth, or if you want to take it in baby steps, that is fine too. However, if you’re postponing it due to what you think is a pending disaster, realize it might not be — as you might actually be delaying your happiness instead. As it stands, nothing is set in stone now; so do take part in creating your destiny, rather than avoiding it.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Be warned: no matter what you say, your honey is going to take it as nagging. Seems there will no winning this week, without waging a small battle each time. Whatever, a little spunkiness here and there never hurt anyone, even if it’s inspired by crabbiness. If anything, it’s putting up with him when he’s like this that’ll really let you know you love him.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Whatever you need this week, whether it’s more time alone or getting him to do what you want, you’re going to have to throw some money at the problem. Call it the easiest solution to the dullest of issues, as dealing with it in any other way will bore you. This week, it’s invigorating relaxation you want, not tiresome tedium.

1 In 4 Men Fall In Love In “Seconds”

Forget notches on the bedpost: When it comes to true love, men fall hard fast. Most think they can tell whether it’s “the real thing” after a single date, whereas women aren’t certain until the sixth, a study finds. For nearly a quarter of men, things move even faster: They believe in love at first sight and know whether a woman is “the one” after just seconds, the Telegraph reports. Men who hail from Britain, where the study was conducted, also fall in love more often than women—an average of three times, compared to once for women. Read more… Keep reading »

Thoughts From Guys On Our IM: Why Are Dudes Either Flaky Or Non-Committal About Time?

Why Are Men Non-Committal About Time?
What is it with dudes and time? By that we mean, why do they—and of course we are generalizing because that is what we get paid to do—either refuse to be committal when it comes to making a date or are super flaky about the plans/statements they do make? The Non-Committal Type says things like, “Let’s hang out soon” or “I’ll call you sometime.”
Meanwhile, The Flaky Type is super specific, but has zero follow through. “I’ll call you Monday to make plans for a date on Thursday” results in no call Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday, so you make alternate plans for Thursday night, but guess what? He’s all up in your grill that morning, saying, “Psyched to hang out tonight!
What should we do?” We are in a constant state of trying to decide which type we hate more. But more important, why do guys generally fall into one of these two buckets? Why is the “Guy Who Makes Specific Plans And Sticks To Them” such a f**king dating unicorn? We went to the guys on our IM to find out.

Infographic: What Your Bra Says About You (On A Date)

Hey ladies! (And some dudes!) In honor of Bra Recycling Month (this is an actual, real thing and not just some creepy internet guy trying to get you to send him your old bras) we’re addressing that age-old question: If you hook up on a date, what can a guy tell about you from your choice in bra?

As it turns out, if you obsess about which over-the-shoulder-boulder-holder to pull from the ol’ bra(wer) drawer, you’re totally justified. We can tell quite a bit about you from the type of breast support you rely on. Keep reading »

Girl Talk: Why I Got Married Young

When my boyfriend and I were 24, the topic of marriage began appearing before us everywhere. There, at our dinner-table, the word ‘marriage,’ as we sat talking. ‘Marriage,’ on my lips as we sat on the couch with a glass of wine. Everyone says “you just know” and I guess that is true, but there is also a lot of just “yeah, it does feel right.” Then falling—sure you’ll be caught by clouds. Keep reading »
