Your Love Horoscopes for the Week of December 30th

There’s no easy way to say it folks: 2013 is not about to go out gently. A slew of difficult aspects will likely aggravate every area of your world, prompting you to make extra potent New Year’s resolutions. For many, love and relationships will come under an exceptionally somber review period now. More unhappy couples will call it quits than ever before, citing an inability to live with their frustration any longer. There’s also greater emphasis on business rather than pleasure in the cosmic sky these days. One thing everyone will have in spades, however, is the resolve to be the master of your universe.


Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope (Mar 21 – Apr 19)

Devotion to your career is admirable, but it might cost you in the relationship department. This week it’s likely that professional opportunity and obligation will conflict with your ability to offer attention to your mate. A New Moon on Wednesday looks potent and positive for you in terms of your ambitions, but it’s unlikely you’ll receive the support you yearn for from your partner. Sometimes, it’s lonely at the top. If there’s ever a time you’ll feel this way, it’s now.

Taurus Horoscope
Taurus Horoscope (Apr 20 – May 20)

One priority in your love life is that you must feel a deep spiritual connection with the person you’re with in order to fuel the sparks. If you aren’t connected in the soul department, then sex becomes empty. This week, expect a test in this arena. On Wednesday, you may begin a new quest that you’re passionate about, but you’ll quickly discover that your mate doesn’t share your same enthusiasm. In fact, it may conflict with his or her ideology. This could be a problem. You can’t open your heart to someone who keeps a closed mind.

Gemini Horoscope
Gemini Horoscope (May 21 – Jun 20)

The tension in your love life might hit an all-time high. You’re ready to explore deeper intimacy with a partner, but you might feel frustrated as you attempt to get closer. This may have to do with your sex life, but it can just as easily be a deeply personal matter you hope your mate can open up to you about. If you’re ready to fight for this relationship, you’ll certainly have an opportunity. Your sweetheart will not make it easy, but if you’re convinced the love is strong enough, then no amount of frustration will deter you.

Cancer Horoscope
Cancer Horoscope (June 21 – Jul 22)

A fresh start is possible for you and your partner, but it certainly won’t be without its share of stress. If you’re committed to working things out with your mate, remain confident in your ability to make it happen. At the same time, however, you may be at an impasse when it comes to a domestic situation you can’t seem to agree on. Optimism and faith may be renewed by Friday, but don’t forget that any conversation involves listening and speaking. Remember to take turns!

Leo Horoscope
Leo Horoscope (Jul 23 – Aug 22)

If you’ve been caught up in a bad office romance, things are about to get messier. Perhaps you and your lover have tried to keep this a secret affair, and if so it’s possible that by Friday someone at work will let the cat out of the bag. Another possibility is that you have unrequited feelings for someone or unrealistic expectations about a current relationship. Consider talking to a counselor or someone you trust about your love life debacle. It’s time to unravel a few knots.

Virgo Horoscope
Virgo Horoscope (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Out of all the signs, you win the cosmic jackpot for the most promising developments in the romance department this week! You can thank a potent New Moon in your true love sector this Wednesday, joined by an even more transformational connection between the Sun and Pluto in the same area of your chart. You crave intensity and depth more than ever these days when it comes to love. Fortunately, you’re likely to attract someone who can meet your expectations and satisfy your hunger. Still be aware: An obsessive love connection is possible.

Libra Horoscope
Libra Horoscope (Sep 23 – Oct 22)

If you’re married or live with your partner, this may not be an easy week. It’s possible that you and your love are knocking heads these days when it comes to a domestic problem or living situation. You may be at a deadlock — unable to agree on where to live, whether or not to move, or even how to live with each other without losing your sanity. If you’re dating someone and plan to introduce him or her to your clan this week, you may want to think again. Hold off until next week, because that might be the difference between your family embracing your new sweetheart or rejection.

Scorpio Horoscope
Scorpio Horoscope (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

When it comes to your love life, you want to know the truth — no matter how hard it may be to digest. A New Moon in your communication sector on Wednesday may set the stage for information overload. You’ll likely have at least one new writing, teaching or sales project to focus on, and this may take your attention away from matters of the heart. Still, if there’s any secret information or unspoken words between you and someone close, this will be the week to get things out into the open. Besides, you already hear the screaming beneath the silence, don’t you?

Sagittarius Horoscope
Sagittarius Horoscope (Nov 22 – Dec 21)

Financial strain might distract you from romance this week. While it’s true that Wednesday’s New Moon in your earned income sector will invite the opportunity to earn cash from a new revenue stream, at the same time it appears that your expenses are unusually high these days. You might have decided to cut back on your holiday spending, and if so your sweetheart may take it personally if he or she didn’t get the material gifts hoped for. If this happens, you will begin to see your lover in a whole new light. A turn-off for sure.

Capricorn Horoscope
Capricorn Horoscope (Dec 22 – Jan 19)

This week it’ll be impossible to ignore the rumblings inside of you that demand change. If you’ve been less than satisfied with the course of your life or a love relationship, this Wednesday’s New Moon in Capricorn will urge you to be the change you want to see in the world. As you move toward the fresh chapter in your life, if there’s an old, outworn relationship holding you back you’ll examine whether or not it’s time to breathe new life into it or just let it go.

Aquarius Horoscope
Aquarius Horoscope (Jan 20 – Feb 18)

The roadblocks in love may continue for you this week. Not only is Venus Retrograde in your private 12th house, but a New Moon in the same area of your chart will occur on Wednesday. This lunation will be a tense one, and although there is the potential for new beginnings, it’s not without stress. In your case it appears that the fresh start has everything to do with your ability to let go of a past disappointment related to heartbreak. You deserve to move forward. What’s stopping you?

Pisces Horoscope
Pisces Horoscope (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

A testy New Moon on Wednesday, followed by the Sun connecting to Pluto, may stress you out socially. A power struggle between you and a friend might begin to surface, and if so it’ll be difficult for you to remain diplomatic. Not helping the situation is the potential for your lover to get involved by Friday. He or she may run off at the mouth to your pal in an effort to defend you. Do your best to resolve this situation on your own. This week, keep your friends and your sweetheart apart.

The Daily OM for December 12th – Putting People on a Pedestal

Putting People on a Pedestal
Allowing Our Loved Ones to Be Human

by Madisyn Taylor


When you put somebody on a pedestal it is giving away your power and saying you are not good enough.

When we fall in love with someone or make a new friend, we sometimes see that person in a glowing light. Their good qualities dominate the foreground of our perception and their negative qualities. They just don’t seem to have any. This temporary state of grace is commonly known as putting someone on a pedestal. Often times we put spiritual leaders and our gurus on pedestals. We have all done this to someone at one time or another, and as long as we remember that no one is actually “perfect, the pedestal phase of a relationship can be enjoyed for what it is—a phase. It’s when we actually believe our own projection that troubles arise.

Everyone has problems, flaws, and blind spots, just as we do. When we entertain the illusion that someone is perfect, we don’t allow them room to be human, so when they make an error in judgment or act in contradiction to our idea of perfection, we become disillusioned. We may get angry or distance ourselves in response. In the end, they are not to blame for the fact that we idealized them. Granted, they may have enjoyed seeing themselves as perfect through our eyes, but we are the ones who chose to believe an illusion. If you go through this process enough times, you learn that no one is perfect. We are all a combination of divine and human qualities and we all struggle. When we treat the people we love with this awareness, we actually allow for a much greater intimacy than when we held them aloft on an airy throne. The moment you see through your idealized projection is the moment you begin to see your loved one as he or she truly is.

We cannot truly connect with a person when we idealize them. In life, there are no pedestals—we are all walking on the same ground together. When we realize this, we can own our own divinity and our humanity. This is the key to balance and wholeness within ourselves and our relationships.

Daily Motivator for December 3rd – Choose a positive response

Choose a positive response

No matter what happens, you can respond in whatever way you choose. So make  your response the most positive one for every person it affects.

There’s nothing to be gained by adding more negativity on top of negativity.  You have the opportunity to break the pattern.

Instead of responding to anger with more anger, challenge yourself to respond  with understanding and compassion. When you’re tempted to respond with  frustration, make the more positive choice to respond with patience.

For your world to be a more positive place, you must take responsibility for  putting more positive energy into it. Though a positive response may be the more  difficult one, it is also the more valuable choice in the long run.

Rather than choosing a response based on what has happened, choose your  response based on the direction you wish to go. Even when life has let you down,  your best choice is a positive response that creates a more positive future.

Each response to life is an opportunity to make progress. Choose a positive  response, again and again, and create a much more positive world.

Celebrating Spirituality 365 Days A Year – Last Chance Day

November 28th

Last Chance Day

This was considered to be the last chance to marry before the beginning of Advent, during which marriage was frowned upon. It was believed that if a man wanted to marry women who were in debt, he would not be responsible for the woman’s financial obligations if he took her, dressed in her undergarments, from the hands of a Priest.

Today’s Quiz – What Soul Sign Are You?

What Soul Sign Are You? Quiz

This elemental approach to the human soul is a fascinating way to understand  who you are, especially in relationship to others. Do you crave attention from a  partner? You may be a Fire type. Do you like to organize and plan activities  with your significant other? You may be an Earth.

Take this simple quiz to find out your soul-type so you can learn more about  the ways you relate:

1. You sometimes have regrets, but nonetheless you revel in the joy of having  created an effect, whether good or bad. You live in a drama of sorts, either  emotionally or creatively.

2. You are a person who needs attention, who needs to be recognized and  admired, who is sensitive and easily hurt over the smallest thing, who can love  and hate with equal passion.

3. You are a person who thrives on love and passion in personal  relationships, who needs to be number one in their partner’s life, who likes to  have their own way, who feels easily neglected and is capable of being quite  jealous when their spouse’s attention is somewhere else.

4. You are a person who needs to plan before acting, although you are  determined to turn your plans into action. You make lists and like to take  control.

5. You pay close attention, striving for perfection, even in the little  things, generally organized, especially in situations you consider important,  sensitive but able to reason and to be fair, steady, and reliable.

6. You thrive on being the organizer in the family; are loyal to your spouse  and expect the same respect and loyalty in return; can seem on occasion to be  bossy and you like to take charge; you like to be romanced and need genuine  affection.

7. You don’t like pressure, and you don’t like to be upset or argue, but you  do like new people and new experiences.

8. You love animals and children, do not sweat the small stuff, and are  usually easygoing, happy to go along in life without fuss, generally calm, and  somewhat passive.

9. You thrive on simply being loved, are undemanding in your personal  relationships, like to keep things simple and uncomplicated, hate arguments and  fights, and will try in most cases with your spouse to pacify and keep things on  an even keel.

10. You usually find a way, through compromise, to please others and  yourself. You are able to evaluate and solve problems by negotiating and seeking  harmony.

11. You avoid attention, shy away from the limelight but still like approval  from others for work well done; you strive to be fair and considerate of others’  feelings, but can be so immersed in your own life that you can be neglectful of  issues outside yourself or your family.

12. You thrive on the ability to communicate with your spouse and family;  feel the need to always strive to be seen to be reasonable, even when they  perhaps cannot be, and are strong-minded and capable of standing your ground in  an argument when issues are important.

If you answered yes to 1, 2 and 3, you are a FIRE.

If you answered yes to 4, 5, and 6, you are an EARTH.

If you answered yes to 7, 8, and 9, you are an AIR.

If you answered yes to 10, 11, and 12, you are a WATER.

Be sure to read this great book to find out more about your sign and the ways  it manifests.

Divorce with Grace

Divorce with Grace
A Life-Altering Decision

by Madisyn Taylor

If you are divorcing, look to your inner heart for guidance and surround yourself with loving friends.

Like the act of marriage that binds two people together, divorce is the result of a life-altering decision. It is the dissolving of a relationship that we believed would last our whole lives. We may not even be able to articulate how we got to this place, yet we may also feel we have no choice but to sever this tie. Whatever we feel, we need the support of the friends and family who will stand by us no matter what we decide. At some point, we may need to be challenged to look deeper inside ourselves as we make this very important decision, but what we need most of all is unconditional love and loyalty.

Divorce is a process that, once in motion, becomes difficult to stop, and this can be painful if we find ourselves having second thoughts. We may feel that we should do more to save the marriage, or we may wonder if there is something about ourselves that we could fix or change instead of going through with this painful separation. On the other hand, we may be seeing in hindsight that our marriage was truly only meant to last for a short time so that we could learn something we needed to know. Whatever the case, we need friends who will allow us to linger in confusion when we don’t have the answers and who will support us whether we find ways to reconcile and stay married or whether we walk away.

Of course, the most essential ally we have lives inside our hearts and speaks to us from within. We can trust this inner guide to help us choose people who will support us in kind and loving ways as we navigate the rough terrain of confusion and loss. Sometimes all we can do is look to the horizon, remembering that we will get through this time, and no matter what happens we will once again feel whole.

Daily Feng Shui New for Nov. 6th – ‘Birthstone Of November’

The birthstone of November is the mystical, magical topaz. The ancient Greeks believed that this gemstone had the power to give strength, improve eyesight and make its wearer invisible in times of emergency. Ages-old traditions also say that topaz is a symbol of friendship, love, fidelity and purity. I suppose that getting all of those gifts from this one stone would make anyone celebrating one have a very happy birthday this month!
