For The Week Of July 20-26, 2009

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Whatever issue has been pressing hard into your pretty little mind is finally going to go away, as clarity is coming. This week a revelation is in store for you, opening your world to more fated and fabulous possibilities. Seems all the things that were frustrating you will be easily disposed of and laughed at shortly. Thank goodness, logic comes in exactly when you need it.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Among your friends with benefits and stockpiles of booty call options, there will be someone in that mix that has a serious possibility of wowing your panties off in a way that is deeper than just orgasm — rocking you to the core and making you do a big ole double take. Yes, what could be happening is that you find what you need has been right under your nose this entire time.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Love and all that other crap can go bite it this week, because that won’t be where you get your thrills. Seems your gratification will come through career dealings or anything regarded as being in the public eye. While it seems you’ll be hot, it’s more of a, “Look, don’t touch!” vibe and frankly, you’ll most likely find this voyeuristic thrill to feel better than sex.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Boredom happens fast in your world and thankfully so. After all, you know what you want and if you aren’t feeling it fast, you know you won’t ever feel it at all. However, this week an opportunity to go off a beaten path will strike. It might not hit like lightening that you should take this route, but for sh*ts and giggles, do it! Answers will come in time.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Ultimatums are so dramatic and rarely do they ever give the person giving it the satisfaction they want. After all, being forced isn’t cool, sexy or romantic — and that is what you should keep in mind this week when someone tries to powerball you into doing as he wants. Joke is on him; show him his bark is WAY bigger than his bite.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Happy bonding times are in store for you, as you and your baby get more romantic than ever, opening up discussions that bring you further into your future than you ever allowed yourself to think with him. Seems commitment is on the agenda and cracking open this nut will finally break the tension to truly allow you to be yourself.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Batting your lashes is all the work you should have to put out this week to lure in the interesting prospects, as the less you do and the more you make them submit, the better the foundations you lay down to be able to trust the situation — as this is going to be one of those weeks were it’ll be harder to tell a sheep in wolf’s clothing. Actions are going to have to speak louder than words.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Your tastes won’t be quite the same, as it’ll be the underdog that somehow finds a way to pull at your heartstrings. While you won’t know what to say for yourself, in terms of whom you are falling for, the thing you will be grappling with is that you have fallen. Seems you do have a soft spot and that person that knows how to press it will be giving you a run for your money.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Focuses get turned to the domestic front, as big steps towards shacking up happen — and if he isn’t bringing it up, feel free to drop the bomb first, because this page turner will prove to be a pinnacle point in which revelations are made and plans get set into motion. If you’re already living in sin, time to invest more into the situation. Yes, it’s all about stepping it up!

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Grand declarations are coming and the information you learn may shock and amaze you. Not everyone in your life is as he appears and when you uncover the shocking facts, it can lead to a deluge of lust or loathing. Either or, passions will run high and confusion will throw you into a tizzy. Of course, the drama will make you feel hot as hell too.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

The presentation of yourself will matter, so let vanity get the better of you. Time to pamper, preen, and polish yourself up; an attitude adjustment will do wonders for you soul and overall morale — and if there is anyway you’re going to get laid this week, it mean getting back in touch with your je ne sais quoi.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

If ever there were going to be a lucky week for you, it’s this one. New beginnings and just flat out random luck will be working to give you exactly what you visualization. However, don’t waste this gift, like using it to lure in that underachieving hottie you’ve been eyeing at happy hour, but rather a sex god with his life together. Yes sister, this is the time to dream big!

What I Learned From My “New York Post” Date

Here’s proof that you can never read a guy, or never know what he’s really thinking. Last week, I participated in The New York Post‘s “Meet Market,” a weekly feature that sets up couples, and then reports on their dates. Aside from a horrible photo of me in a high-circulation newspaper (really…are my cheeks really that big and shiny?), the experience was enjoyable because I got a free meal, and for the first time ever, I also saw the honest report of the man’s side of the date. And let me tell you, it wasn’t at all what I expected. For starters, the moment I saw the photo, I knew my perception was off. During our date, a photographer came and had us act out different scenarios, for example, where we’re both happy and the date went great, or if I gave the evening a bad report, I would look bored and he would look amused, etc, etc. I was fairly sure that I would open my paper to see a picture of us both smiling. Wrong. There I am, beaming like a fool and my date, Travis, looking horrified. Oh no, I thought. He’s said something awful about me, I imagined, before I could even begin reading the article.

Love And Marriage 101: What Is A Mistress?

My great Aunt Agatha prided herself on being married for 75 years and she had a diamond ring on each finger – gifts to her for allowing Guiseppe, her husband, his afternoon “exercise.”

We often asked her why she had so many diamonds and she would say, “Some day, you will understand.” And what we came to understand is that her husband had mistresses, or as we came to hear her whisper, “comare.” Continue reading Keep reading »

  • When “I’m Dating Someone” Is A Lie

    I got an email asking a very simple question:

    “If a guy says he’s seeing someone, why is he adding pictures to his dating profile?”

    Well, it’s not a simple question. It’s just one that requires you to think a bit like Dr. House. Everyone lies.

    If you sent a guy an email via your online dating site and he replied, “No thanks, I’m seeing someone” and then started adding new photos to his profile a few days later, one of two things is happening…Continue reading Keep reading »

    The Eight Rules Of Rebounding

    Jon and Kate Gosselin announced their split less than a month ago, and Jon certainly didn’t waste any time getting with a new girl. Meanwhile, Kate continues to wear her wedding band. Is Jon cruel for moving on so fast, or is Kate just slow at accepting the fact that her marriage is over? This got us thinking about our rules for rebounding the right way. Keep reading »

    Marriage Is Changing, Whether It’s For Better Or For Worse

    While many fear that America is falling out of the marriage habit, and that, these days, all is bad in love and more, new stats show otherwise. Supposedly, 86% of women marry by age forty. This says something, considering that a 20-year-old article in Newsweek declared that “a 40-year-old single woman had a better chance of being killed by a terrorist than getting married.” Ouch.

    Decode My Dream: I Keep Getting Pregnant!

    “I had this really weird dream the other night about having a baby. I’d already given birth and the baby was with a group of other babies who were being given up by their mothers for whatever reasons. I didn’t recognize mine at first and started playing with another one. Then I realized it didn’t look like me and went over to the baby that I was sure was mine. I had decided to give the baby up for adoption because I knew I was in no place to have a baby right now — I’m 20 years old, in college, and single — but the more I played with it the more I didn’t want to let it go. I started breast-feeding it at one point, but I tried to do it covertly because I was afraid that I wasn’t allowed to feed it seeing as how it wasn’t really mine anymore. I knew in my dream that I couldn’t keep the baby but I kept going to visit it and hoping that no one would adopt it.

    A few months earlier I had a similar dream. I realized I was seven months pregnant and got scared that I hadn’t felt the baby kick yet. Then immediately it started moving around. Someone stole it from me when I was about to give birth and I was on this mission to get it back. I was on the run at the time because the people who had stolen it were also after me. I woke up before I found it. What gives in these dreams?” – Too Young to be a Mother Keep reading »

    Should A Man Have A Say In What A Woman Does With An Accidental Pregnancy?

    Remember that abortion party we told you about? The general reaction to that little shindig was, um, “Appalled!” But, as I’ve never heard of one before, I don’t think it’s an indication of a trend. However, one aspect to the story did inspire another conversation about how much say a man should have in a woman’s decision to keep or terminate a pregnancy. Keep reading »
