For The Week Of August 8-14, 2011

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

It might feel as if the weight of the world is on your shoulders, so avoid letting yourself get run down. However, it’s likely this is more psychological than physical, as you’re playing your own worst enemy a little harder these days. Whatever the case, rely on traditions you have to pamper yourself, as it’ll take some self-bribery to truly motivate you properly this week.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

No matter how many judgments you have about yourself, you’ll be happy to discover that you are actually someone’s idol. Yes, love in the form of worship will be working its way to you and will cheer up a few dark spots in your life. As it goes, it’s just your perspective that needs some shifting and it seems that kick in the booty will come soon enough with ribbons and bows.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Your trust issues can be such a bitch, but luckily the one person you trust the most, as in yourself, will prove to be a winner, as a hunch you’ve been hauling around will finally be confirmed, as the green light you’ve been hoping for will finally shine bright and give you the go ahead for the future you’ve been dreaming of.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

You can’t force anyone to believe in your ideology by just saying it; they’ve got to watch you live it, as that is where you’ll gain the most fans. So, this week, despite just wanting to bark demands and have everything fall into place, realize it won’t be that easy. Motivation this week means taking action and truly being what you say.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Although having conflict is evil and can drain the life out of you, this week, when you get your sweet revenge, you’ll finally learn the sweeter points of war. Yes, those bitches that have doubted you and waited for you to fail will finally get a show they won’t forget, as they can all kiss your booty as you ascend up that ladder of success.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

This is your week to shine, as love and commitment will finally be one in the same. If you’re with someone, then expect the thrills to increase and more exciting responsibilities that bind to occur. If you’re single, work those sparks, as full on fire can ignite now. Yes, this isn’t the week for you to be sitting at home and knitting tea cozies.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Summer will start to truly sizzle now, as love, sex and destiny will all be happening in obvious ways. Yes, no more having to scour the scene for clues, as the mystery of emotions will start to unravel and reveal something sweet for you to hold onto. Of course, whether you get bored of this victory shortly will remain in question… However, doubtful. So don’t get dramatic!

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

The world will revolve around you, dammit! To get it so will mean being a bit more assertive about where you want to go. So, no being a wallflower, and reach out to everyone with what you want. The more contact, the better. After all, nothing ventured, nothing gained, but as you’ll discover, there will be a lot of others who’ll want to spin around your axis.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Break out the bubbly, as good news will likely land into your life in terms of career. However, this can upset the balance on the homefront in some way, as a touchy ego won’t be so easy to maneuver around. No matter, don’t let anything or anyone rain on your parade now, no matter how hard someone wants to guilt-trip you. This is your week, so take it.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Madness does make you curious, but this time around, be ready to look beyond the surface, as the show that’s being put on can appear to be more dramatic that it actually is, so beware. If you want the truth, it’ll mean sitting back and taking in the bigger picture. As it goes, if you look long and hard enough, you will see everything for what it is.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

You’re going to have to do a lot more leg work than you would like, but if you want what you want, it’ll mean setting an example and the minions will follow from there. Yes, power can be a bitch to wield, but if you stay focused, the rewards will arrive one by one. So, have faith, as now things won’t move too fast for anything or anyone but you.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Hold people to their word! Otherwise, if you start to give in now, there’s no telling how far you’ll stretch your limits and once you go there, what’s the point? If you do, it’ll put you on the defensive, rather than the offensive, and that is just not an acceptable position for someone as charming and divine as you. Seriously!

The 10 Commandments Of College Dating

As a college grad, seeing the words “college” and “dating” together in one sentence almost seems like an oxymoron. The [sad] truth is that in a college environment, traditional dating is very far from the norm. As we all know, dating culture in college = hooking up. There are still plenty of romantic hopefuls, though, who prefer to tread the traditional waters. Whether in college or not, everyone could always use a little guidance when it comes to the dating game. (And now that the new school year is quickly approaching, I’m sure a few of you undergrads are getting the jitters about picking up the pace again with that college boyfriend of yours!)

So in light of these back to school jitters, I present to you the 1o Commandments of College Dating… Read more… Keep reading »

Is Your Body Image Hurting Your Love Life? 3 Ways To Change

There’s no question that our body image influences our relationship behavior (heck, we did a week-long Experts spotlight on it, that’s how influential it is!). Low body image and self-esteem blinds us to our own self-worth, which in turn can make us settle for a so-so relationship or give up on searching for love altogether. As part of our Love Starts Within spotlight, YourTango Experts sound in on how to stop hating on our thighs (or stomach, or whatever we’ve deemed our “problem area”) and start loving ourselves fully—because if we don’t love and accept ourselves, flaws and all, how can we expect someone else to?

Girl Talk: I Always Ask The Big Questions

Can you see yourself with him forever? I asked myself just, oh, the other day.Yes. Yes I can. I had asked this question of myself a few months ago too, but about someone else. The answer was the same. And about six months before that. Same question, same answer. Did I mention I’m currently single?

This week, I read Dater X’s latest column with great interest. The idea that maybe we should be asking ourselves bigger questions — “Can I see myself marrying/spending my life with this person?” — about the people we date is not a foreign concept to me. I ask myself that question almost right away with nearly every single person I date; and, with a few exceptions, my subconscious usually answers “yes.” At least at first. Keep reading »
