7 Shocking Things You Might Discover By Snooping On Your S.O.

Yeah, we know, snooping is wrong. It’s unethical. It demonstrates a lack of respect and trust. But it’s just so goddamn hard to resist! I’m a Scorpio, which means I am curious by nature (hence my career as a Super Serious Journalist), and I’ve never met a medicine cabinet or open email account that I didn’t have the intense desire to peek at. For the most part, my snooping has resulted in a big fat wad of nothing, though one time I discovered a woman I was babysitting for was pregnant again before her husband knew. When it comes to significant others, snooping can be especially tempting, but the results of that clandestine investigating can be far more fruitful — and hurtful — than finding out the woman who pays you $10 an hour to watch TV with her toddler is about to add a screaming baby to the roster. Here are seven shocking things you may not want to find out about when snooping on your S.O. Keep reading »

Venus Goes Direct: Everyone, Back To Falling In Love!

Breathe a sign of relief if you were one of those people who couldn’t get a break in love, money, or even squeezing out a good hair day in the last month. The good news is there was a reason for that mayhem: Venus was in retrograde, a trying period when all things dealing with love, beauty and pleasure go haywire. Your moods swing between emotional extremes, while also, at times, skewing your vanity. However, November 18th marked the day when the insanity officially ended, giving us just one more week of its aftershocks before fully subsiding its dastardly power, which took hold on October 8th in intense Scorpio. (It then re-entered indecisive Libra on November 7th, where it will stay until November 29th, until it returns to Scorpio until January 7th, 2011, which is an extra long and sexy place to be!)

For The Week Of November 22-28, 2010

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Be warned: you might feel a bit more neurotic than usual, tuning onto a psychic power that will make you see deep beyond surfaces. Go ahead and don’t let anyone talk you out of your “craziness. Instead, dissect whatever is on the examining block to the core, as your security and sense of trust are now under fire — it’s time to find solid ground where you are or elsewhere.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Don’t be shy in running what you hear past friends before considering the offers that have come in. Not to say you need their permission, but you may be projecting, hearing what you want to hear instead of getting the facts straight. Of course, in time what you wish may come to pass, but for now, the pace you are moving at is likely to be slower than the one you want.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Just because someone is aggressive doesn’t make him or her passionate or smarter. Sure, it’s hot being with someone who knows what they want, but this has to be a two-way street for it to truly work. If you are feeling even a bit of apprehension, take that as your red flag. Understand moving ahead isn’t always the right option, especially if staying where you are works for you.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Believe your own hype because this isn’t the time to cut corners to accommodate anyone. Yes, you might come across as a little too bossy for some people’s taste, but screw them. This is your time to shine and if they can’t add to your luster, then they need to step off. There is no holding you back now, even if you don’t know where you are going, as all will unravel in time

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

An epiphany is coming for you, as long as you put yourself out there and voice what is bothering you. Seems that in your verbiage will come the answer: You will hear yourself in a way that will start to make all things clear. So, time to double up on the shrink appointments, journal writing or purging to friends, because a breakthrough is destined.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

This is your time to be who you want to be and throw caution to the wind, as a burst of energy is about to hit you and send waves of inspiration to your brain and body. Seems nothing can stop you now. You have all the right people at your disposal, helping you to whatever goals you set. The catch: put out the signals loud and clear, because those around you are not mind readers.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

There will be more promises made to you than you’ll know what to do with, but you’re a smart lady and if you pay attention closely, you will know which opportunities are for real and which are just meant to flatter. Yes, seems there’ll be more than a few who want to kiss your ass, but only a precious few who will actually have the ability to do so properly: know the difference.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Forget what you see and pay attention to what you feel, as nothing you assume might be what truly lies beneath. You know it; time to listen to that higher being in you and take the higher road, as the one less traveled now will be the one that will bring the answers you need. Of course, it may also bring some suffering along the way, but nothing you can’t handle.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Get behind closed doors and pull the shades shut, but don’t be foolish to think you can go it alone. Instead, grab someone delicious to join in on your hibernation. All you need now is some real intimacy to recalibrate yourself and make you feel powerful. Otherwise, trying to submerge yourself solo into your deep unknown will only put you farther down the hole.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Relationship woes are about to end and a new balance will be achieved, redefining the purpose and direction of where you both want to go. Yes, a love renaissance is in the works, putting you and your baby on the same page in every way and making all the pieces of the puzzle fit together easily, as now you both are finally seeing the same picture.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

A surprise is about to enter your day-to-day life, breaking you out of your current malaise. What you once thought was cute will no longer suffice, as something new and improved is heading your way. Once it arrives, you might not know what to make of it, but your curiosities won’t be able to resist wanting to make something of it.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Not that you aren’t already playful, but this week will unravel a new level of flirty, as fate will have quite the way of nudging you into a fun, new, sexier adventure that will have even you wondering how far you would go. Yes, challenges are in store, as in new boundaries to push and new ideals to grasp. Seems you haven’t done it all, yet.

Ask The Astrosexologist: “Will My Virgo Ex Ever Want Me Back Or Should I Move On?”

My Virgo ex-boyfriend and I dated for over a year and a half. We met in high school, when he was a senior and I was a junior. He left for college, but we wanted to stay together, so we tried a long-distance relationship. For the majority of that year, everything worked out well … but then he changed. A lot. He chopped off all his hair and became the epitome of a “frat boy” even though he never joined one. I tried to suppress my feelings, thinking that it was just freshman year experiences and I couldn’t say anything because when I went to college I’d probably change too. As far as I know, he never cheated, but he did become increasingly distant.

I Have An “Indoor Boyfriend”

I had been dating Jared a few weeks when my friends started questioning whether or not I’d made him up.

Jared was the awesome boyfriend they only heard about and never met. He cooked for me, we loved the same TV shows, he looked great in pajamas, we had great chemistry, and we could laugh for hours. There was only one problem with our relationship: I couldn’t stand him once we were out of the comfort of our living rooms. Read more Keep reading »
