For The Week Of August 15-21, 2011

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

You’re going to have to hustle a bit to get your schemes in order now, as things will likely be falling apart fast if you don’t stay on it like white on rice. Yes, time to push back all unimportant appointments and put out fires as they spark, even if they aren’t yours. No, this won’t be the sexiest week — that is, until you save the day.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Trying to be friends is impossible. After all, if things don’t come natural to you, forcing yourself to “try” always equals coming across as false — to yourself and often times to that other. So, as you move ahead with this week, pay attention to your feelings, as the trepidation is there for a reason, like a form of self-protection.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

People can be such crackheads. While you make it a job to be painfully honest, understand it’s not the same for others. So, keep this in mind as someone talking an impressive game might not be as forthright as you want. Not that you should sympathize, as it is likely they are trying to sound as if they’re on your equal plane. No matter, a liar is a liar.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Hot attractions make you burst at the seams, as you’re not one to hide excitement when you’re feeling it. However, this week, someone will be stirring your curiosity in a more mysterious way and it’d be best if you keep this one on the down-low until you can sort it all out and figure this secret’s place in your life. He or she will not have proven their worth in just a week.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Perhaps it’s work stress or annoying family issues, but whatever the case, it’ll be making you need your outlets in a bigger way. Yes, expect to feel dirtier and hornier this week — but lucky you, your honey will be on that same vibe to, so don’t be shy in initiating XXX scenes, as they’ll be one thing in your life that will be as easy and tasty as pie.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Life is flying by you so fast, it might seem as if you’ve hardly have anytime to absorb all the recent events and sort out where you want the future to go. You know it, that mood to break out those talks with your latest piece will be happening, as you’ll be feeling a bigger need to find a secure set of shoulders you can count on.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Every day will feel like a struggle, as everyone around you will think they’re right and of course, everyone will have a differing opinion. While you’ll wonder if it’s worth the battle, don’t waste time deciphering that answer. As it goes, when things get so hectic, it’s best to just bow out and let the bloody mess work itself out. Until then, enjoy going under the radar at the beach instead.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

This week, don’t bother with the underwear. It’ll just be another thing getting in your way, as your unbridled passion and inner romantic will be taking over and making you act out on all sorts of insane impulses. No matter, it’s about time you had something in your life that makes you want to get off the couch.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Get ready as the flakes will be out this week, making you want to kill as the disappointments add up. So, as you read this now, save yourself and make a note not to set any plan in stone this week, because there will be more than enough communication snafus that will be out to bite your ass.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Don’t wait for your turn to talk. Strike while the iron is hot, even if it’s just for you. Yes, your show of power will put another off, but a change of mind will come in time. After all, there is never a good time for truth, especially when it comes with a painful sting, but once it settles, you’ll get the respect and results you’re ultimately aiming for.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

You’re just getting your stride going, so keep your eye on the prize. As it goes, this is your time to move ahead of the pack, as you have all the elements going for you — expect people. No, you won’t be getting the support you will need, but screw it, that validation isn’t necessary now. In fact, it may help you — sticking it to those slackers will be your best motivation yet.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

You’re not one to be shy, but somehow someone will be making you a bit timid — despite the fact you can talk night and day about them to others. Honey, wake up and realized you’re obsessed! While talking non-stop to others may make it somewhat real, only actions can make it truly come alive. So, work it now and don’t settle for looking without touching.

6 Things Not To Do On A First Date

Set your DVRs! Why? Bravo’s latest must-watch reality TV show, “Most Eligible: Dallas,” debuts Monday night. In honor of our new favorite guilty pleasure, which follows a group of hot singles in the Texas city, we’ve got some first date tips that you – and they! – should follow.

The unthinkable has happened. He asked you out. The only guy who renders you speechless. The guy so smart, handsome and unbelievably hot you can do little more than blush and stutter in his presence. And now you’re going out with him. Tomorrow. Hooray?

Your friends think it’s cute that you’re in such a panic, but you can’t see any humor in the situation. Not only do you have to lose 10 pounds, grow an extra cup size and somehow talk your mousey mop into looking like Jennifer Aniston’s—you have to do it all by tomorrow. Oh, and you should probably also think about regaining your powers of speech. What to wear? What to smell like? What to do?

Okay, we can’t really help you with that, but here are a few things you definitely shouldn’t do, after the jump… Keep reading »

Girl Talk: On Being A Slob

My name is Winona and I am a slob.

Growing up, my mom affectionately referred to my bedroom as “the pig sty,” and rightfully so: the clothing, books, art supplies and cereal bowls that covered the floor would often reach knee-height before I felt the urge to tidy up a bit. At some point my brothers began gathering up the trash from their cars and setting it my room instead of putting it in the garbage. Months would pass before I found the bags of Slurpee cups and cracked Green Day CDs.

When I moved into my college dorm, my roommate was also a slob, and within months the trek from our doorway to our beds had become eerily reminiscent of the scene in “Star Wars” where Luke Skywalker falls into the Death Star’s garbage compactor. Keep reading »

First Time For Everything: Posing Nude

My first concern when preparing for my appointment was: What I should wear? Sure, I was going to be stripping down to nothing, but maybe I could strip down to nearly-nothing instead? I looked through my closet. What could I artfully drape over my body while still keeping the safe spots — shoulders, ankles, torso — bare? What did I have that could simultaneously reveal and conceal? Why in heck had I never purchased anything with ruching?

What Your Taste In Music Says About You (On A Date)

It’s one of the quintessential (and sometimes dreaded) first date questions: What kind of music are you into?

There’s a reason that most people tend to side-step this question with a deft, “A little bit of everything.” It’s because your taste in music reveals a lot about you to potential partners. Here’s the breakdown of 71 bands/musicians/singers and what they say about you… Keep reading »

Date Like A Gay Man

“I met someone I really like,” my friend Greg*, who’s gay, announced.

“That’s great!” I said. “Is it serious?”

Yes, he felt it might be. But that hadn’t stopped him from keeping his options wide open while finding out. Greg proceeded to tell me that since meeting his new romantic interest, he had hooked up with three other guys, had a man that he saw when he was in town from San Francisco, and 12 others that he was flirting with online.
