Talk, Chat, Tweet * Gemini Sun 5/21/15!

On Thursday May 21, 2015, the Sun bounces into the fun, flirty, focus challenged, flexible, flighty third sign of the Zodiac. The natural versatility of Gemini, with its willingness to adapt, keeps the wrinkles, both mental and physical, at bay. While under its influence, we will feel encouraged, regardless of birth sign, to teach, learn, meet and greet, read and write, chat too much/gossip too much and try to be in two places at once (that Castor/Pollux, “twins” thing). And don’t forget travel, whether it be real or arm chair, the search for greener grass will be enticing....more

Breaking of the bulb! What do I do now?

This past weekend was a “clean-up” weekend for my two girls. We had recently reorganized the room in the basement for their own personal play room. They spent the day putting toys away, deciding on a new color for the walls, adding some decorations and stealing lamps to brighten up the room. Of course the lamp they want did not have any light bulbs…so they began to scour the house for a bulb....more

Time to Shine! – Leo Sun 7/22/14

The Sun rules the 5th sign of the Zodiac and you can tell.

Leo urges us to be generous, attention seeking, creative and full of a lion’s pride. When the Sun struts into this regal Fire sign, expect to have some fun for the duration of its stay....more

Gemini Sun 5/20/14 - Let The Multi Tasking Begin!

Gemini has the sign of the “twins” as its Astrology symbol and while the Sun is in this 3rd sign of the Zodiac, we will all have the urge to double the fun regardless of our actual birth sign. The characteristic youthfulness of Gemini, they usually look younger than their age, has nothing to do with immaturity. It is a curiosity for new places and things, the enjoyment of doing several things at once and the willingness to adapt that keeps the wrinkles, mental and physical, at bay. Fun, flirty, festivity loving, focus challenged, flexible, flighty (Full disclosure – I have a Gemini Sun, so I’m really having fun w/ this :)...more
