For The Week Of November 2-8, 2009

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Seems still waters do run deep, as circumstances that you didn’t think were really moving along will give you a jolt of surprise when confessions start to pour in and emotions you didn’t suspect were there are, in fact, there. This will turn you a bit topsy-turvy. Your instincts will kick into autopilot. Get ready for a cliffhanger kind of week.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Image matters to you. Not to say you are totally superficial, but you do believe the way someone holds him/herself is not just on the surface – you think what shines from the inside should be powerful enough to negate the flaws on the outside. Of course, these little tensions have a strange way of turning you on and, well, sometimes you have to dig deeper to find the beauty within.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

There will be a major moment of clarity when it comes to your feelings for that special someone and knowing what you are willing to lay on the line. Seems transformations are in store, and to get that ball rolling, fate will throw you a crazy oddball surprise – one that’ll assure you that your current state of affairs is truly on the up-and-up.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

End your boring routines this week. You know what works for you and what doesn’t. Trying to make any more excuses is directing your energy the wrong way. Be bold and be willing to start to make those changes that will effectively lay down the foundation to a lifestyle more your speed. If this means changing up the scenery altogether, do it for your libido.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

You will be acting out in all sorts of ways that may make you unrecognizable to even yourself. Instead of going the loner route, trying to sort out crazy emotions that seem to erupt suddenly, ride it out. Hit the town and have fun with this new side of you. This will help you unleash pent-up emotions and teach you that being safe won’t get you laid.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

You’ll be in a more serious mindset, which will make you dive into an introspective mood. However, what you will discover is that emotions from the past are not as dead and buried as you thought. With nagging sentiment lurking about, be ready to dig deep into your psyche to sort through the mess. Yes, this is your week for the full exorcism that will finally set you free, once and for all.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Loosen up those lips and let the words pour out of your mouth. Realize your hopes and ideals are within arms’ reach and make the efforts to make that stretch. Although you do think the world should come to you, there is no time to be petty about who should do what and sticking to roles. Be progressive: your body will thank you for it.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Who cares how much pride you are going to have to fork over if it means your redemption? It’s never too late to win back something you’ve lost, especially if it’s holding you back from moving ahead. Yeah, groveling and backtracking are not your speed, but to show you care, humility will be as effective as Spanish Fly.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

As long as you can stand your ground and be pushy with your agenda, it’ll work wonders in the sexy bravado category. It will captivate your boo more intensely and get him to do as you say. If you’re single, don’t waste any of your mystique on lying around at home in your grubbies. Work it where you can and watch your love life take a turn into more exquisite territory.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

There is nothing wrong with living in fantasy land, but don’t think that you have to be the only one steering the wheels. Give that someone who has the imagination to keep up the chance to co-pilot the ride. While this will require you to give up some of your control freak tendencies, realize you’re not always the one with all the good ideas.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

You can run and you can hide, but it’ll only buy you time. The inevitable is coming and there’s nothing you can do. The more you resist your emotions and the situation you’ve gotten yourself in, the more dismal other parts of your life will get, as your focus and anxiety levels will suffer. Get real with yourself and step up to the plate already — not everyone is out to burn you.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Put your foot down and let him know where your boundaries lie. The nurturing route is sweet, but not everyone responds to the soft touch; obviously, by now you see he doesn’t. This time, it’s all about tough love and doling it out as you see fit. Besides, as you should know by now, breaking out the whip is your most effective method to getting want you want.

Porn Is Good for Relationships

With titles like “When Harry Ate Sally,” “ET: The Extra Testicle,” and “The Bare Bitch Project,” it’s no wonder porn has a bad wrap. But, not all porn is of the absurd nature. In fact, porn’s intimidating nature is disintegrating and actually more and more women are seeking it out—to invigorate their sex lives. Keep reading »

Ask The Astrosexologist: Will Things Ever Be The Same Again?

I’m a Capricorn (25/12/91) and I’ve been seeing a Pisces (24/02/93) for about one and a half years. Our relationship has been very good most of the time. He is everything a Pisces guy should be: romantic, giving, loving and gentle. However, for the past few months, we’ve had several quarrels that lasted for days, but everything turned out all right in the end and things went back to normal — but just last week, we had another quarrel over a minor issue and I pushed him away in a moment of anger and used harsh words. He took it all in and acted fine, but then later the same day he told me he needed a break. At first, he told me that the reason was because he didn’t want us to continue like we have been and for things where we wouldn’t be able to keep in contact. I took it for real and told him I would move on. Right after that, he told me he still loved me a lot and that he was simply very tired from the quarrels and needed time to pick himself up. He added that he would return for me when he was feeling better again. I love him very much and asked him to stay. He did. He still tells me he loves me and we still go out often, but he doesn’t seem to be the same. When I am not out with him, he doesn’t talk to me and told me he needed some time alone. He used to be very caring, but now he seems to keep to himself. It is making me feel insecure. I am confused by the reasons he gave for the breakup and I am worried things will remain this way. Is there any way that I can help him or am I just wasting my time hoping things would be like how it was before the breakup? – Lost Capricorn

4 Tricks To Instantly Connect With Anyone

It’d be great if dating and flirting were easy—things you could approach with excitement and nonchalance. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case. You want to make a good impression on your potential love-interest, yet the very act of pondering how the other person perceives you can make you less confident! Below are four tricks for making a great first impression whether you’re cruising the pick-up scene at a bar or on a first date. Keep reading »

Road Trip Essentials So You And Your Man Don’t Break Down (Or Break Up)

Taking a road trip with a lover is sometimes as precarious as a first date. Say or do the wrong thing — or forget to bring a proper caseload of snacks — and you’re in trouble. While it’s clear that some things should be utterly avoided on the road — like discussing whether dating for two months makes things “exclusive” — other major tragedies in coupledom can be avoided if you follow a few helpful tips.

From a guy’s perspective, here are 10 essentials to bring along to ensure that what is intended to be a bonding experience doesn’t end up in a breakup. (Note: Your dude gets bonus points if he packs these things in the glove box or in the trunk without your knowing.) Keep reading »

Tucks of skin trickled out from a pink, tropical bikini top. My half-naked body glared back at me from the unforgiving gleam of a fitting room mirror as I modeled a two-piece suit, gripped to the grooves of my body.

Dear Wendy: My Husband Can’t Cut The Apron Strings

I am 24 and have been married for about 2 1/2 years. Since getting married, we have visited my husband’s parents, who live about 45 minutes away, at least once a week, including practically every weekend. My husband and I both work full time and weekends are really the only downtime that we have together. He’s really close to his parents — he lived with them until we got married — and sometimes I feel like “the bad guy” if I don’t want to go over. Even when I don’t go with him he’ll still make it a point to go alone, which obviously still interferes with our time. It even goes beyond weekends; forget about trying to go away for the holidays — his family has always spent the holidays together and it would be unheard of not to. I’ve tried talking to my husband because as much as I love his parents and get along with them, I feel like we’re too connected to them. I feel that he’d rather not “rock the boat” and would just feel guilty for saying anything. He just tells me he feels that once a week is reasonable and that he feels holidays are “family time.” I’ve even convinced myself that there’s no way we can ever have kids if we live in the same city as them because I’m worried it will only get worse! Is my husband too attached to his parents or am I making a big deal of nothing? — Annoyed Daughter-in-Law

Dating Amelia: For Once I’m Not Being A Complete And Total Spaz

A wise Mind of Man once told me, “Generals are always prepared to fight the last war.” People — well, OK, I — try and work through the crap of their last relationship with the person they’re with currently. This, I think, explains why, for the better part of my adult life, I have been a complete and total spaz when it comes to men and dating. I know, shocking, right? if I was a spaz before the relationship with my ex-fiance, I was a complete and total bunny boiler after he broke up with me. I was an insecure, over-analytical nutter and wasn’t sure how, when, and what it would take for me to stop fighting a war in which I was the only participant. Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: It’s Been 7 Years And He’s Still Not Ready For Marriage

I am 30 years old and I’ve been dating my fiancé for seven years. We have one child together and I have a child from a previous relationship. He proposed last year, and we’ve recently been talking about going to the justice of the peace. He keeps saying he wants to marry me, but now he has to “get his business off the ground” and get money for a pre-nup first even though he doesn’t own any property or have large savings. Before the pre-nup talk it was “we have to wait until we get the house” (which didn’t work out). It just seems like he is constantly coming up with ways to delay marriage. I tried to discuss a date last week and he went off telling me not to pressure him. It’s been seven years — how long am I supposed to wait? I have been with him since college, we broke up and got back together. I can’t wait any longer but I don’t want to give him an ultimatum. Something is wrong with this picture. All of this time invested warrants a marriage. What do I do?? I am so frustrated and I think I need to leave. — Frustrated Fiancée
