For The Week Of November 29-December 5, 2010

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Subtlety isn’t going to work on the home front. If you aren’t with their program, speak up and voice your ideas. As it stands, this isn’t an easy time, but reverting to silence or any sort of passive behaviors will only prolong or aggravate the agony. Besides, if you don’t guard your boundaries, where will you draw the line and how else will anyone know where not to tread?

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Keep up the pace and don’t let yourself slag behind. The slower you are now, the more questions may creep into your mind and cause trouble. The point is to avoid being your own worst enemy, and stay busy. If that means saying “yes” to all invites, go for it. At the very least, it’ll keep your brain from going over the deep end by taking yourself or any others too seriously now.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Indulge yourself, as the pressures hanging heavy over you are lifting and it’s time to exhale. Celebrate your accomplishments and know you make a direct difference to the world around you. Yes, this is your moment to toot your own horn and love it, as you’ve passed all your tests with flying colors. Plus, you’ll need this last hurrah before entering your next phase of challenges.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Throw away all that you know and take a walk on the wilder side. This is your time for a little reinvention and showing off a new side of yourself. That’s right, no matter how bold you think you already are or willing to go, amp it up a few notches. Flinging open a few doors isn’t enough; it’s making an entrance that’ll go down in history.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Forget the excuses. You have bled your compassion dry. Now, it’s time to focus back on what truly matters — you. Yes, time to shut down all those extraneous voices that have been drowning out logic and come back to a tranquil peace of mind where you aren’t always the one left with the shortest end of the stick — because as of today, size does matter!

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

You already know the answers; so make it about acceptance this week. You know your gut has been trying to tell you something, and you won’t be able to deny it this week, as even more confirmations will come through friends, so heed the warning. Not to say the news is going to be bad, but change is coming and once it does, it’ll rock your world in quite an interesting way.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Crazy offers will find their way to you from a friend or some weird association. Whatever the case, jump on it. If this opportunity takes you far out of your current routine, even better, as this is your time to break free and go off onto new horizons. Seems trying out new positions will benefit you in more ways than just the obvious.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Forget trying to hear what you want to hear, because it won’t work. There is no deluding the truth now, as whomever you’re entangled with is not as liberal as you might assume. While you can try to push and pull until the break of dawn, realize there are more exciting and productive ways to expend your energy, because barking up this tree won’t get you anywhere.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

You don’t have to change what you’re saying, but if you want that someone to connect to what you’re feeling, you are going to have to use alternate methods to get your point across. Seems your intensity may not be so easy for another to digest, making this disconnect occur. Instead, throw in a dose of humor to get them to bite; from there it’ll be much easier to go in for the kill.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Breathe a sigh of relief as you and your honey get on the same wavelength in a huge way or, at the very least, you find a powerful resolve in yourself that will have you feeling your most confident. Whichever the case, good times are in store as you turn your issues around to work for you, creating new pathways to success and a revived feeling of hotness. Yes, love the burn!

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

The comfort level in your relationship is going to that place when calling up just to hear each other’s voice is going to feel as natural as breathing. Yes, this is a time to revel in the togetherness that is you two, but don’t be shy in sharing your feelings and thoughts, as now is also your moment to start dropping bigger crumbs to where you want your boo to follow you.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Your mojo is on and if you have to lay it on extra thick this week, oh well. Sure, your nose may grow a few inches, but it won’t be for nothing, as being a bit sycophantic could make a lot of other things in your life grow to the size you need and want. Realize for the greater good, this act must be done and at the end of the day, whom does it really hurt anyway?

I’m A Guy With A Sugar Mama

When I was working as an English professor, my fiancée ran a medium-sized company and made 15 times as much money per year as I did—before her bonus. Like many men, I’m proud and competitive. I had already accepted that I wasn’t going to earn more in my lifetime than my father. Now I blanched when I wanted to take my darling to dinner: would we go to the kind of place she’s used to, which I couldn’t come close to affording, or would she be willing to slum it with me again?

Dear Wendy: “Should I Pursue A Long-Distance Relationship Or Move On Already?”

I have been talking to this guy for a few months now. We were good friends in college and reconnected via Facebook and upgraded our flirtatious banter to texting and phone calls. He lives about four hours away from me (I realize this is not really that long distance considering you moved across the country for a guy). We have each visited each other once in the last two months. Both of us have spoken candidly about wanting to date but it’s always under the pretext of “if you lived here.” He’s asked me to move in with him numerous times, and while I know I wouldn’t do that on a whim, I would be willing to do long-distance for a little while to see how compatible we are and then in, like, a year revisit the idea of moving. Should I give up and move on? Or should I try to talk to him about it? I can’t imagine losing anything by telling him how I feel, even if he says absolutely no to long-distance, then I’ll know for sure that we should stop talking, right? – Feeling Lost

Girl Talk: Forget Sisters, It’s My Brother Who Keeps Me Sane

When we were kids, my younger brother Greg drove me bonkers. His favorite activity was lying like a corpse on my bed while I screamed, “GET OUT, GET OUT, GET OUT!” until I finally dragged him into the hallway. He also liked hiding, then jumping out and scaring me. He wailed like a cat in an imitation of my singing in the shower. I found out he read my diary. (How? By reading his.)

But we were still fiercely protective of each other, especially as the only Chinese kids in a neighborhood rampant with racism, and as we got older, we became more friends than squabbling siblings, banding together against our nagging parents and their disapproval of our non-traditional pursuits (book writing for me, screenwriting for him). But it was when I was going through the toughest time in my life that Greg became not just my ally but my voice of reason, my Cassandra, the one person I knew who was unafraid to tell me the truth.

How To Survive The Holidays Stress-Free

November and December are a time when we come together to catch up with loved ones, enact family traditions and celebrate life. But the season of good cheer is not always cheerful. Between selecting the perfect gift for him, booking expensive, last-minute flights and spending hours in a cramped car with family, most people get frustrated at some point during the winter holidays. Unfortunately, the closest target for those frustrations often happens to be one’s partner. Keep reading »
