For The Week Of May 25-31, 2009

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Standstills are not your cup of tea, but realize you don’t have to take a passive route and think you have to wait around for others to make a move. You have many other directions to head and many other options to forage. If you think in any other way, you will only be screwing yourself of chances that hold way more promise.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Your tastes have been somewhat questionable and this week, even you will be taking a second look at your choices, trying to sort out what is happening and how you were led into the moment you are currently faced in. Of course, this could be a grand ole surprise too. Whatever the case, a big 180 won’t be out of the realm of your possibilities.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Your anxiety levels are finally going to start dropping and you will start to feel like a sane person in a matter of time. The crazy issues you’ve let you brain get wrapped around and the dramas you’ve create in your head will reach a very anticlimactic breakthrough that will suddenly have you shrugging your shoulders and saying, “Okay, now what?”

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

If you keep cruising from the explosive energy of last week, then this week will basically continue your giddiness. If you didn’t have a fab week last week, the perhaps look out for this week to serve it up, as this is your time when karmic payback will light you up in places you thought only the dark could witness.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Your diva routine is going to backfire on you if you don’t infuse a sense of humor into your act. Even though you may be right and you have every reason to make demands in your love life right now, humility will take it that next step and keep your classy aura intact. Otherwise, remember there is a fine line between having balls and just being a bitch.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Options make your life go around, because if there is something you like, it’s having your brain wander into the far reaches of the universe. This week you imagination starts to turn onto a higher level, making you realize there is more than what you want to see. Seems there are things that exist that you have to learn to see and this week, you’ll be seeing them!

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

There are always two sides to every story, so before you go rushing to judgment and thinking you know it all, wait. In time, the truth will reveal itself and vindication will clear that guilty suspect on the line. Otherwise, blowing up and assuming the worst inevitably will cause your relationship to suffer.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Money issues are a drag, which will be brought up again this week and put a damper on your mood. However, if you just face up to the drama now and sort it out, a compromise will come as your ingenuity for negotiations are in prime form. While this may not forever kill this issue, consider this a big enough band-aid to hold it down for a decent amount of time.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Don’t be too shocked to run into people you haven’t thought of in ages. This will make you have a major blast from the past and a bout of nostalgia that’ll have you thinking all sorts of crazy things about your current life. Hopefully this will be an enriching and ego boosting movement, because as these things go, anything can happen.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Forgiveness is an easy thing you give out. However, it’s the follow through and never bringing up those arguments again that can drag you back down the pit. Luckily, this week, you will have one last hoorah of that old and worn out issue that seems to rain on your parade and by the start of the new month, all will be sunshine and smiles once again.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Your boo’s friends will be a point of contention with you and if you don’t want to turn a mountain out of a molehill, you’re going to have to find a way to deal in the less intrusive manner because if you place yourself in the hot spot for too long, you will explode and it won’t be a pretty picture. Perhaps this is a week to catch up your friends.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Just when you thought power struggles would be the death of you, a light will come at the end of the tunnel that’ll shower respect and accolades onto you. Sure, you’ll have to truly put yourself to the test and humble yourself to the unknown to get it, but there are far worst things you have had to do to get reverence in your past, so consider this pass a piece of cake.

“Being Fat Is Grounds For A Divorce,” Plus Other Scary Advice From A French Wife

Some female bloggers call the U.K. paper the Daily Mail the “Daily Fail” because the paper likes nothing more than to bait its readers, especially on its women’s interest “Femail” section. It’s the go-to source for incendiary articles about how bosses should distrust women who don’t have children and you can’t have a family and a career. Nope, we weren’t making those up.

But nevertheless, the paper is fascinating to us—especially a recent article about what it is supposedly like to be a French wife. We romanticized about the sexy accents, and yummy facial hair, but zut alors!, it sounds a bit like being the captive of a very demanding tyrant.

When Does A Couple Become A Family?

My grandparents are celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary this summer with a big party of family and long-time friends. I’ll be flying to St. Louis with my fiancé, my sister’s flying in from Austin, and my parents will be visiting from their home in Germany. It’ll be as much a family reunion as a celebration of my grandparents’ long marriage — a testament, really, to the bonds they’ve helped create and nurture over the last six decades. As a gift, one of my aunts wants to make a family tree, which seems like a nice enough idea. But when another family member alerted me that my fiancé won’t be included on the tree because our wedding isn’t until several weeks after my grandparents’ anniversary, it got me thinking: when does a couple become a “family”?

Dating Don’ts: The Downside Of Online Dating

Although there’s still a certain inexplicable stigma attached to it, I am a huge proponent of online dating. I met my long-term boyfriend that way and the majority of weddings I’ve been to over the past couple years have been for couples who’ve met via the internet.

So whenever I hear a friend whine about how they never meet anyone, I give them the online spiel. Heck, Nerve.com should be paying me a commission because I’ve talked so many people into joining.

But as awesome as online dating is for expanding your dating pool, there are also some negatives. The biggest being that it can bring out the worst in people. And by people, I mean you.

    10 Ways Not To Say “I Love You”

    On Monday night’s “Gossip Girl” season finale, Chuck told Blair he loves her. While the gesture was nice, the words missed the mark. He didn’t say, “I love you.” He said, “I love you, too.”

    Adding the “too” is fine every once in a while, but it’s definitely not cool the first time someone says it. The “too” takes the emphasis off how they feel about you, and it reinforces how you feel about them. Keep reading for other no-nos when you’re saying those three words. Keep reading »

    How To Tell A Man He’s Bad In Bed

    Mike Alvear wrote a two-part series on how to tell a man or a woman he or she is bad in bed. For dudes, he suggests they repeatedly ask their ladies what she likes in bed in hopes she’ll get the hint and ask what he likes. He also advises bringing up the conversation casually while ready the morning paper (not in bed and definitely not just after sex), and telling a woman what you want more of and not less of. For women, he makes the same suggestions, but advises them to have their conversation side-by-side and not face-to-face since, he says, men are intimidated by eye contact. His advice is OK, but it’s a little passive-aggressive. I get that it’s a fine line to tiptoe, but with a gentle touch a little constructive criticism never killed a guy. After the jump, five ways to let your guy know his “skills” leave a little to be desired. Keep reading »

    10 Wedding Vows I’m Making To The Public

    For our July wedding, my fiancé and I have decided to write our own vows. Of all the wedding preparations, I’m pretty sure this aspect will the most challenging — with the exception of breaking the news to my heat-intolerant mother that the ceremony would be held outdoors at noon in the middle of summer — if only because it’s so personal.
