For The Week Of June 6-12, 2011

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Having a little egg on the face is just a fact of life; so, as this week starts up and has you realizing you were wrong about a certain situation and person, do take note of it in a big way, as this will set a precedence down the line. No, it’s not a time to make excuses, and yes, the pendulum theory will swing harder and truer this week.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Despite any discomfort you are feeling now, you’re actually in a great position! Yes, little do you know that from here, you can switch to new places that will give you a greater sense of leverage than you’ve had before. While it might feel impossible, only you can hold yourself back now. So, instead, dream that larger dream and understand the view is much bigger than you can see.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

You may be the hardest sign to surprise, but when it happens do, you can count on having the most major one of them all. Yes, watch for emotions to swing around the spectrum and lead you to a journey that encapsulates a spiritual evolution you haven’t had in ages. Lucky for you, this one will end with a huge and life-altering thud that will break you of the tedium for quite a while.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Just sit back and let your baby make the choices now. Why worry your pretty little head with any of the details when you can just wait for all to settle and then put in your two cents that leave you with the ultimate control? Timing is essential now, and although not your strong point, patience will mean a powerful payout.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

To get romance working in your favor this week, it’ll mean working on all the little details and responsibilities that you’ve been avoiding, thinking (hoping) someone else will do it for you. As you should know, entitlement is the biggest squelcher of love, so do heed this warning and reevaluate your behavior now, as what you want isn’t a moment you can wait for.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Don’t ignore hunches you have now, as small curiosities can lead to big love. After all, passion is about spontaneity and surprise. So, forget trying to play out far-off scenarios as you think they’ll happen, because storylines worth pursuing won’t be so cut and dry, but only you can keep turning the page.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Security is nice, but not if you’re getting complacent. Instead, use the knowledge that you have a place to rest your head to propel you towards something bolder. It’s all about making moves to test out new waters now; there’s no reason why your realm of security can’t have a bigger reach with you claiming the world as your oyster, not just the few blocks you live near.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Crazy confessions will pour out, leaving you shocked, confused and aggravated. Yes, if this other was just honest from the start, this could have saved a lot of time that you don’t have to waste. While these secrets may not be intense, as they’re annoying, they will strike at the heart of your anger anyway. So, get ready to have to smack a head straight once again.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

You have the power to get whatever you need. Not that all can be perfect with a wave of a wand, but don’t discredit the work you’ve put in. Sure, you aren’t exactly where you dreamed, but trust a few more big steps will get you further up the mountain towards the perspective you need to know that all is good and that you’re exactly where you’re supposed to be.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

There is no one to impress that is more important than you, so forget trying too hard with the whole show pony routine. Besides, anything that doesn’t come natural now is something you should question, rather than trying to fight through. Not that there is ever a time to relegate yourself to second-class status, but especially not this week.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

What was once old may become new again, as a surge of sentimentality may take over and make you do all sorts of crazy things. However, insanity is blowing in the wind these days, so as impossible as the situation may appear, fate may have a few ways of twisting the situation to your liking and giving you the surprise of a lifetime.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Don’t settle on any decision about anyone now, as what you see won’t be what you get. Not to say that person is putting out shade, but first impressions won’t be as valuable as you would like to them be. So, keep the mind and heart open, as the jury is out — which even means being too optimistic as well. As it goes, the answer may be 50 percent good as it may be 50 percent bad.

Would You Have Your Pets Be A Part Of Your Wedding, A La Miranda Lambert?

The self-shot venison dinner, the cowboy boots for the bridesmaids, the wearing of her mom’s wedding dress, the fishing honeymoon—yes, we have been thoroughly obsessed with Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton’s sweet downhome wedding. But now a new detail has reeled me in even further. Apparently, Miranda and Blake were adamant about their dogs—chihuahua Cher, chihuahua-pug Delta, and terrier Delilah—being a big part of their nuptials. The three pups walked down the aisle with one of Miranda’s boot-clad bridesmaids. The doggies even got their own rhinestoned bandanas and collars for the occasion. “They were rock stars! Total rock stars, ” says Miranda’s publicist/wedding planner. “They were tiny little representatives, but they got a lot of laughs and attention. They were right in the big middle of everything … [Miranda] wanted a place where everybody would be comfortable, would have a great time, just feel at home and her dogs could be a part of it.”

This has me wondering—would you have your pets be a big part of your wedding? Keep reading »

Girl Talk: How Commuting Killed My Relationship

“The commute is killing me,” I said, tears streaming down my face.

My live-in boyfriend Jeff looked at me, puzzled. I couldn’t blame him. The way I behaved when I got home from work every day was, well, puzzling. After a 12-hour work day as a high school teacher and a two-hour commute home through bumper-to-bumper Los Angeles traffic, I arrived home every night in a rage. On the worst days, I would push through the door of our apartment like a tornado, slam it shut, scream at Jeff, run into the bedroom and cry like a five-year-old. This is embarrassing for me to admit, but it’s true. I should probably also mention that I am usually a fairly calm, only occasionally histrionic person. I was not behaving like myself.

Girl Talk: Why Being Drunk Is A Feminist Issue

Too Drunk?
If you're a drunk woman who gets raped, will you be taken seriously? Read More »

Last weekend, I stood on the subway platform, thumbing through a magazine and grumbling about how the next train wouldn’t arrive for another 11 minutes. As I waited, more and more feet descended the stairs. Two pairs caught my attention — one was manicured with bright red polish and strapped into a sky high silver sandals, the other was in electric blue stilettos. Both pairs of ankles wobbled as their owners awkwardly lowered their feet. It seemed like at any moment, one—or maybe both—of them would come plummeting down the stairs. A few unsteady steps later, two women appeared in full view—both their faces were flushed and they clung to each other’s arms for dear life. “Wha a you lookin’ at,” one of them slurred to a guy who shook his head as they passed.

These girls were trashed. It was only 8 p.m.

Watching them zig and zag down the subway platform, I felt adrenaline rush through me. I felt like I should do something. But what? These are adults. They’re just having fun, I thought. They can take care of themselves.

But then another part of me thought: how naive. Keep reading »
