A few weeks ago we talked about the common experiences most likely to give each sign a nervous breakdown, so we thought it was only fair to even things out and talk about the challenging situations that each sign can handle like a pro.

Here are the situations that bring out each sign’s inner badass: Keep reading »
Starting June 7 (and lasting until July 2), the planet Mercury went retrograde, causing our lives to go haywire. Mercury Retrograde happens several times each year, but somehow, it never gets any easier to cope with. Mercury is thought to rule communication, transportation and deep thoughts, which skews all these things off-balance when retrograde begins.
Mercury retrograde often inspires people to get themselves into grand predicaments or make rash decisions they later regret. Life feels dreamlike and hazy, emotions are running high, and trains and planes are delayed. It’s almost as if life is moving in slow motion and takes extra effort. People you usually communicate with perfectly suddenly misunderstand your intentions. During this time, our subconscious thoughts come to the surface and rule our minds more than our more logical sides.

Kiki T’s Friskyscopes are my forever fave, but count me among Debra Silverman’s newest fans.

I can only speak for myself, but her Scorpio impression is both terrifically accurate and hilarious. Scorpio, whether she’s been drinking or not — Debra’s Scorpio seems like she’s had a few — is always at risk of blurting out what she really thinks, which explains why we can be kind of quiet. Check out a few more of Debra’s astrological impressions after the jump and the rest at the link! [ViralNanoNews] Keep reading »
