Even if you don't follow astrology at all, there are certain events in the sky that you just can't miss. Sunday, May 20 is one of those days. Both the New Moon and a Solar Eclipse are happening at the same time. I am an astrology fan and have consulted both quirky and quacky astrologers in my day and there are a couple of astrology websites that I follow. I don't read my horoscope every day but I do tune in when I have an important decision to make and knowing my Scorpio nature helps me manage my emotional energy for sure.
Do you enjoy fondue flecked with gold? A chilled bottle of Moët & Chandon on a king-sized bed of 1,000-thread-count Egyptian sheets? If you answered yes, than you'll have no trouble adapting to Taurus as the sun enters the second sign of the Zodiac today.
Are you an astrology junkie? In that case, you already know that Mercury went retrograde on Aug. 2, and will stay that way until Aug. 26. What does this mean for your love life?
Just in time for Independence day, love goddess Venus glides into the home and family sign of Cancer. Does that mean you can expect a warm and fuzzy family reunion? In your dreams, baby. Seriously—if you want a peaceful holiday, you may have to use your imagination to get to a place of compassion or understanding with your peeps.
What a month this is going to be! From the get go we start the month with the sha-bang of a solar eclipse which will also happen to be doing a dance with Pluto, Saturn,Uranus and the Black Moon forming together a Cardinal Grand Cross. Now this planetary alignment is with the slow moving planets so the configuration actually began and has been peculating right along since the last week in June. And the common feeling that these planets are bringing out of us is one of frustration at the slow movement of the growth we want to see happening in our lives.

As a note before I begin your monthly horoscopes, this New Moon on the 1st is when you want to write your wishes or affirmations for how you want your life and the world to unfold and what you want to create.
We've now successfully exited Gemini and the sun has entered Cancer—so what does this mean for your relationship? Only good things! Expect lots of eating, snuggling and sweet talk for the next month. Cancer is the fourth sign of the Zodiac and arguably the most sensitive and nurturing. Cancer's ruling planet is the moon, which is associated with motherhood and femininity. Indeed, those born between June 21st and July 22nd are natural caretakers and pride themselves on therapeutic listening skills and culinary talents.
The longest lunar eclipse since July 2000 will take place on Wednesday, June 15, and it will occur during June’s full moon, starting at 1:24 p.m. EDT and lasting until 7 p.m. EDT.
Love may be a little confusing from June 5 to 15 as love planet Venus meets Neptune, the planet of dreams and illusions. If you’re not quite sure where things stand with you and your beloved right now, try to relax and go with the flow, since pushing for clarity during this planetary transit will only muddy the waters more.
Relationships get steamy as Venus, the planet of love, meets up with Mars, the planet of sex, in the slow, sensuous sign of Taurus. If you’ve got a hot date planned, you’re in luck; if not, you might want to schedule something ASAP. This is the moment to savor your partner like a fine wine, or a delectable piece of chocolate. Between now and June 9, take the time to enjoy every second you spend with him or her, reveling in the experience and letting all your senses awaken to your lover’s presence. Venus in Taurus is all about receptivity, so allow yourself to soak in each and every pleasurable moment, taking in as much as you can of the good (and yummy) that is available to you now.
On May 21st the sun officially enters Gemini, the third astrological sign in the zodiac. If traditional folklore is to be believed the sun in Gemini is the perfect time to open up the floodgates of communication and talk things out. Words, ideas and the finesse to string them all together in an engaging manner should come extremely easily during this period. This isn't the time for hysterical flare-ups or illogical attacks—Gemini is far too diplomatic and flexible for such a dogmatic approach to conflict.
Strong and silent types rule until the end of May as Mercury, the go-to planet for communication, meets up with Mars, the action planet. This energetic union—which peaks on Friday, May 20—takes place in Taurus, the sign of the Bull. Since Taurus is known for expressing itself using the body rather than words, this is a time to get your point across using more non-verbal forms of communication.
While sexy Mars travels through earthy Taurus, slow down and enjoy sexy, sensual pleasures. While sexy Mars travels through earthy Taurus, slow down and enjoy sexy, sensual pleasures. When the planet of passion (Mars), moves into the sign of sensual indulgence (Taurus), earthly temptations will be hard to ignore—and there's no reason to neglect them! Mars travels through Taurus from May 11 to June 20. Now is the time to dive into the pleasures of the physical realm and enjoy being a human being in a human body. Appreciate all that the world offers now: good food, art, music, flowers and sex—especially sex.
Have you ever yearned for a more passionate love life? Have you ever wondered why you haven't found your soul mate, or if you have, have you wished she or he was more romantic? This spring you can stop wishing: On April Neptune moved into Pisces, ushering new era of enchanting, extravagant romance. Neptune changes signs once every 14 years, so this is a major shift. Here's what it means for you.
On the 19th of March, the moon was as close to the Earth as it has or will be for the next 18 years. A feat that most assuredly comes with cosmic strings attached. An astronomer predicted that the onset of this would cause the universe, or Lady Earth, as we know her to revolt. And she did.
As many of you know, and by many of you I mean the proud few that indulge in my occasional cyber rants; I’m “involved” in an ambiguous relationship with a man by the name of NsSA, Not-so-Starving-Artist. I’ve chronicled our dealings since our initial meeting last November during a SEC mash-up at his flat. From that initial meeting of the minds to an impromptu proposal of faux life partnership with a ghetto gold band we are a couple of humans – proudly. He said yes!
