Sassy sophisticated relationship advice for real women everywhere: dating advice, love advice, and more!

For The Week Of May 9-15, 2011

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Admit it, you need a bigger sense of spiritual understanding to motivate you these days, as just being caught up in routine is making you feel like a robot. So, what to do? Take the bull by the horns and sort out a wild adventure, whatever that means to you, as this is the time when catharsis will be waiting at the end of that journey.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Go ahead and lose control, as balance is so passé. Yes, dive in head first into obsession, as it’ll fuel your fire in a way that nothing has in ages, making you feel like one indomitable vixen. Live out sensually and embrace this madness, as it’ll be just what it takes to prove to you that civility has no place in the presence of passion.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Weird impulsive behavior will be coming, perhaps triggered by you. Whichever the case, expect a crazy series of events that will take you around a spectrum of emotions. While there won’t be much rhyme or reason for what is to come, you can’t stop to question it, as it’s about looking ahead and seeing how to steer yourself to sunnier shores, as the past will start to blur.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Hold off on the Little Miss Know-It-All routine, as you’ll have to take a much more slack approach to dealing with those around you now. Yes, your words won’t be so helpful, as they will seem more nagging, leaving you walking that fine line between helpful and harassing. Not to say it’s all you, but a matter of an inevitable skewed perception of you. c

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Be aware of your “all about me” mindset taking over; it might get your laid and all, but it won’t get you the compassion you need to satisfy your ego. Not to say you can’t say what you want, but do take that half-second more to think about how your actions will play out, as it may be more brutal on another than you first assume.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

You can’t be everything to everyone and when this week hits, all you will want to do is sink into homebody mode and just watch the world drift by from the inside. No matter, there are lots of delightful treats you can dial up and enjoy behind closed doors, as not everything you enjoy now will have to require so much effort.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

When it comes to enticing your libido, realize it’s all about the tease and playing a flirtatious game of cat and mouse now. After all, time is on your side, so it’s the perfect time to work out the kinks of a love affair that has become staid and give it that last college try. As you may discover, the crash course approach can score you an A+ in the romance department.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

When life isn’t going as you wish, there is one guaranteed way to cure your blues — throw some money at it. Yes, when it comes to any issues you are facing now, don’t hesitate to think of buying your way out of it, because as it goes, taking the most direct route will work best for you now.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

You have every right to believe what you want to believe, but even so, not everyone you’re dealing with will own up to what is right immediately. So, this isn’t the time to get too pushy or overconfident when dealing with more passive or proud types. For now, just trust those instincts of yours and know that an upcoming victory is in the bag!

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Although you do love to share, this isn’t the time to show off what happens behind closed doors. As it goes, a secret and saucy affair can start to stir, which will be way hotter in clandestine mode. Besides, who knows how you may really feel and if anything, your aloofness will give you the space to sort it all out when the time is ready.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Hot athletic sex is in your stars! Yes, get ready to work that body of yours a little harder, as you will likely have to stretch your stamina to new levels of endurance. An all consuming, yet quirky affair may get triggered, leaving you to break records and dazzle with new and naughty feats. Funny how others think you’re just so innocent? Hahahaha….

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

This is your time to have the world at your feet, doing your bidding All you need is some persistence and vision, as the gods of charm will be bestowing you with everything else you need to get yourself to the top. However, scandal and gossip are sure to follow, but as you’ll find, being envied is all part of the glamour of success.

Define Your Own Boundaries (Or Why You Shouldn’t Feel Guilty About Casual Sex)

So there’s been a lot of talk lately about slut shaming, casual sex, and what exactly defines a girl as “whorey.” Instead of clearing all of that up for you with this post, I’m probably just going to create another grey area, but hey, that’s what life is all about, isn’t it?

Right. Okay.

So I want to talk to you ladies about one night stands. Casual sex. Hookups. Booty calls. Those guys you sleep with once and probably never see again. The reason I want to talk to you girls about this is because a lot of you are probably cringing right now, recalling your last one night stand, the last time you slept with a guy and then walked home in last night’s clothes, the last time you had casual sex and then felt guilty about it. In fact you’re probably feeling guilty all over again right now. And I want to tell you to stop. Stop cringing. Stop feeling guilty. Stop second guessing and over thinking and feeling bad about yourself. Because you know what? Casual sex is okay. And you know what makes it okay? The fact that you wanted to have casual sex.

Eve Ensler’s Secret To Becoming A Powerful Woman

“To be a strong woman, to be a fierce woman, to be a true woman, to be a leader, to be truly powerful, you have to get to place where you can tolerate people not liking you. And know that when you actually do that, you have to fall back on your own moral imperative in your own moral trunk and say, ‘I don’t care, this is what I believe. This is who I am.’”

– Eve Ensler in the Logo documentary “Beautiful Daughters”, which is about a group of women putting on the first all-transgender production of “The Vagina Monologues.” I stayed up too late watching this movie last night and I can’t stop thinking about this statement. As women, we are socialized to care what others — our friends, our family, our lovers — think of us, so much so that we often lose focus on ourselves. To be powerful, we need to harness our energy and focus it on the positive. When it comes down to it, caring too much what others think of us is not a powerful or creative act. It’s a waste of our precious energy. I needed to be reminded of that. So thank you, Eve. Keep reading »

In Defense Of Dry Humping

Cameron Diaz recently shared her one rule to live by. “One should dry-hump as much as possible. It leads to great things. I’d prescribe at least once per day. What’s also nice about dry humping is that it can happen anywhere,” she told Maxim.

I could not agree with Cameron more. Dry humping is the most underrated sexual activity in my opinion. But sometimes I feel like the rest of the world doesn’t get it. Keep reading »

An Open Letter To My Unintentional Mothers

You may be wondering why I am writing to wish you a Happy Mother’s Day when A) I have my own mother whom I love very much (your gift is in the mail, Mom!) and B) I did not come out of your vagina. I shall explain. Keep reading »

Girl Talk: When Breakups Get Ugly

I guess I was lucky: I made it to age 26 without any really messy breakups. Sure, there were breakups that I thought were bad at the time. In the moment, they all felt terrible. But getting dumped after traveling an hour and a half to see someone or getting dumped on a sailboat in the middle of Long Island Sound — two breakups from my “Worst Of The Worst Highlights Reel” — mostly turned out to be good stories later. Hurt feelings soothed, cooler heads prevailed and I’m pretty much on friendly terms with everyone I’ve ever dated. I even had a coffee with one of my ex-boyfriends just recently. For better or for worse, I’m a deeply loyal and forgiving person. I see the best in people because I want to see the best in people. My most recent breakup was messy and nasty from the get-go and I’m adamant now that we can’t be friends. I put that relationship behind me as much as I could. So I was totally unprepared this week when it once again got unexpectedly nasty. Keep reading »
