TAURUS SHUISTROLOGY FOR APRIL 2012

Your Stars:
Ahhh, April – almost couldn’t get her soon enough, especially for you Taurus.  Let’s face it, April is almost always faboolus for you since it’s the month when the Sun enters your own sweet, sensual and luxury loving sign, but, this April is even sweeter still since you are about to enter a new and thrilling cycle full of excitement, energy, growth and change!  So, then, why wouldn’t a certain someone(s?) be jealous of all the deeeeluxe and delicious energies heading your way now?  These bright and beautiful energies about to infiltrate your entire life should also prompt you to remember to keep your friends close but your envious rivals closer still.  Keep them close until you can make the changes you need to let go of people from your past that no longer fit into your visions for a fortunate and fulfilling future.  Once you clear the decks of useless, unsupportive and quite possibly immature irritations you can get ready to receive!  And receive you will Taurus especially where more money is concerned.  In fact, there are a few days in April when turning your dreams into reality can turn a very nice profit for you too.  I want you pay attention and focus on your finances during these potentially prosperous days as they will also pay out and pay off in other beneficial ways as well.  Get ready to really go green and, now, read on to see when!

GEMINI SHUISTROLOGY FOR APRIL 2012

Your Stars:
Communications are really going to be critical this month in order for all of your recent efforts to begin to bring you the recognition and rewards that you have been so strenuously working towards.  Be confident and have faith as this is definitely not a month for any uncertainty or cutting corners even.  You are going to soon step into an entirely new two year cycle and this month begins that burgeoning.  Look, you are super swag this month and will be attracting attention all over the place but you can’t let that magnetism make you foolish or unfocused or rather risk missing a major (read: MAJOR!!) opportunity.  I know that you’ve been feeling stress over what you consider to be outstanding and unfulfilled dreams and desires but a bit of long delayed gratification is heading your way especially on one specific and super nova day when you finally let go of the fear and feel full of anticipation to explore the exciting and, as yet, unknown territory ahead.  In fact, this one particular day offers you a lucky break of sorts, a chance for change that can advance and evolve all of your intentions.  Embrace optimism now as you are about to experience new directions that will, eventually, affect your relationships at home and at work as well as with your own internal creativity.  This month, Gemini, the stress does start to subside, you just need to know when.  For that info and more, read on.

CANCER SHUISTROLOGY FOR APRIL 2012

Your Stars:
Ohhhhhh, lots of pleasant surprises are in store for you this month, so many and so much  that you’ll be glad to come out of the one season while shedding your shell in anticipation of the next!  In fact, this month will also offer an opportunity for you to stop sidestepping an irritating issue or agenda you’ve been wrestling with – that’s right – that annoying agenda with someone else will all but disappear as long as you are willing to be as upfront and honest as can be while also being willing to be as clear and concise too in order to put this all behind you. Then it will truly be time to embrace ALL the fresh starts that April is allowing you!  For all intents (literally) and purposes (literally) you are about to see some forward momentum and some serious magical mojo on two fronts:  retrograding Mercury moves into direct motion in your 9th House of the BIG Idea (and Travel too!) so you can be sure that this astro transit will be emphasizing and even encouraging you to plan for your faboo future early in April.  Now, you can also take some of those same BIG ideas and apply to make every day is an extraordinary one – and you can do that as soon as Mars ends its recent retrograding cycle during some exciting April days as well.  Mars might even share some swell surprises with you that might also make it much, much, MUCH easier to finally let go of something from your past that def  has been holding you back.  So, you see, you’ll have every opportunity to finally finish something unfulfilling from the past so you can go on now to start to create a seriously satisfying future.  You are growing bolder day by day, but some days are simply better than the others.  Let’s take a look at which is which.  Read on.

LEO SHUISTROLOGY FOR APRIL 2012

Your Stars:
Ding! Ding! Ding!  WOWZA Leo, I’ve not seen such great energies affecting any of the other astrological signs in a long, long time!  In fact you have a such a stupendous month heading your way that I’m a wee bit anxious about you missing some other fabulous opportunities in April while you’re busy swimming in newly restored optimism and enthusiasm!  Other than a few teensy and potentially troubling money matters this month is filled with fortune, luck, great energies and some really good times too.  You’ve been through the ringer lately but there will be bells and whistles blowing you away in April while also announcing your return to the world of the living.  The time for reveling and revisiting the past is coming to a close and now, once you get some of the last niggling financials finally taken care of you’ll be ready to rock and roll with confidence, clarity and a boatload of contagious excitement, ambition and, yes, even exhuberance!  I can even pinpoint an exact day when your life takes a turn and gets completely back on track!  And, then, there’s another super and stellar one that posits and positions you on a pathway that will put your professional life in the spotlight and your ambitious goals within reach.  All those setbacks of late.  All those dark days of directionless, rudderless reckoning.  ALL coming to an end in April.  Want to see when?  Read on.

VIRGO SHUISTROLOGY FOR APRIL 2012

Your Stars:
Breathe Virgo, that’s right – go ahead and breathe out a great big sigh of relief and then let that breath blow big because, as of April, there is plenty of smooth sailing ahead for you which will represent quite a difference from what you’ve been used to the last few emotionally and energetically draining months!  Relationships with your loved ones will improve exponentially this month and any misunderstandings between any family or friends will almost magically clear away leaving you feeling freer as well as wanted and/or needed too!  You will find your finances transforming as well with change being more than what you get back from the cashier at 7 -11.  In fact, for the first time in a long time money issues will no longer be on the front burner but, conversely, they will be heating UP your bottom line.  Did I say ‘smooth sailing’ before?  Maybe what I should have said is that with all the fresh and new beginnings heading your way, your ship is finally about to come in!  Especially when the ruler of your sign give comes back again on one special and spectacular day allowing you an opportunity to rebuild and renew on both personal and professional fronts.  This day will represent resurrection and pull you from the pain of the past.  And, then, there are some others ones that make you want to woot woot as well, even if the money agenda with another could come into play forcing the fun to take a break.  Want to know when, where, who, why and, yeah, when?  Read on.

SAGITTARIUS SHUISTROLOGY FOR APRIL 2012

Your Stars:
April brings you just what the doctor ordered, if that doctor had the last name of Suess that is.  Because Sag, OH, the places you (are about to) go this month all filled with opportunities to turn a corner and head down a pathway of prosperity and success!  Not only do you get to reclaim your old clarity and self-confidence during a month filled with positive changes that you can finally capitalize on, BUT you are also being offered opportunities to transform the delays and distractions of the last few months into more concrete communications!  Said a mouthful there didn’t I?  Look Sag, there is one specific day this month that promises and predicates an out of the blue, sudden and unexpected opportunity that will then prompt some serious and significant advancement on the job front.  But it’s the new romance headed your way that has me most intrigued.  See, on another special and love soaked day there will be a significant shift occurring in your romantic life and you just might be the beneficiary of a new love at first sight, even if that new love turns out to be hiding inside an old and established relationship.  Honestly, all the research I’ve done shows that April might be bringing more than May flowers when this month showers your with the possibility of finding the one great romance of your entire life.  This month you will simply need to be ready for anything even if that ‘anything’ might just take a bit of time to unfold.  All you need to know now is that both mojo and momentum are building and magic’s in the April air.  More magic on some days than others though.  Want to know when you shouldn’t leave the house without your top hat and wand?  Read on.

CAPRICORN SHUISTROLOGY FOR APRIL 2012

Your Stars:
Extra!  Extra!  Capricorn gets some very, very, VERY good news this month either on or around a moon related day and, then, the positive messages just keep on coming!  You will also need to be prepared at most any time to hit the open road where you will be blessed to also keep an open mind – because you are being given tons of opportunities to learn new and potentially life-altering information from on high that will lift you up but also keep push you forward for all practical purposes and intents.  And, well, it’s a good thing that you’re alarmingly charming for most of the month since the propensity for you to be always at the right place, at the right time with all the right people around is off the hook!  In fact, there is one planetary transit on one certain day in the middle of this month that could conceivably be considered one of the most important aspects of your entire year.  You’ll want to know about this day and the ones that follow since activating energies then will also allow you to garner and get more love, money, admiration and pure pleasure down the road.  See I told you that you’d be traveling – even if only down the road to future satisfaction and success.  The proof, as always, is in the pudding, so, if you want to know when in April you can expect this creamy goodness, then, read on!

AQUARIUS SHUISTROLOGY FOR APRIL 2012

Your Stars:
Renewal!  Rejuvenation!  REJOICE!  Oh Aquarius just when I thought that you were destined to power through 2012 pulling all your personal resources of determination and strength to help towards that same end objective, well, here comes April to offer you new energies of confidence, self-assurance, and, most importantly, optimism!  That’s right obstacles and challenges simply fall away this month leaving you oh so hopeful and even anticipatory for the exciting days ahead!  I KNOW that you’ve been feeling limited and even restricted lately and oh so ready to break out of all your everyday rituals and routines, and, guess what, April allows you to do just that.  In fact April is encouraging you to step out and embrace adventure in order to satisfy and fulfill your eager optimism.  Now, all that said, if you thought you were busy before – um – uh – just you wait until April unfolds!  But what could be construed as chaos is actually just, as previously mentioned, a breakthrough in what was previously perceived to be an almost immovable wall.  Not only does April tear the wall down it blows it to smithereens.  Except on a couple of days when you will need to stick to your plan(s) by slowing down and following a set plan.  Yes, yes, I get it, it will feel like deja down all over again, but, what you don’t understand is that there is so much going on behind the scenes that you are not aware of right now that you can’t even begin to know.  The groundwork for your future is being prepared now and you will need to be ready to jump when new and wonderful opportunities come knocking.  Some of then actually come calling, right to your own front door, on a specific and spectacular couple of days when fresh energies fill your whole home!  Financial challenges start to fade and income now begins to flow your way.  On these durable days you are well advised to simply kick back and relax – you do remember how to relax right?  Let’s take a look at when relaxing will reinvigorate your entire life, shall we?  Read on.

PISCES SHUISTROLOGY FOR APRIL 2012

Your Stars:
Communications finally clear this month Pisces and you will find yourself getting back to business, monkey and otherwise!  That’s right, there’s fun, fun, fun in the air, unfortunately though that doesn’t include finding any time to play with your finances.  But, it does include invaluable information that is about to flow much more freely than it has in months and months.  And all that info will than also allow and invite some critical and truly interesting, illuminating, possibly even life-altering conversations!  The stars say that you are now getting set to make the most out of a month filled to the brim with momentum and progress.  Yes, I said PROGRESS!  I know, I know – you almost forgot what that word meant.  Not this month though!  Everything returns to some state of normalcy in April, especially and specifically because of one particular planetary transit happening on one tremendous transformational day.  On this one day you won’t want to even go to sleep because there’s so strong a chance that you are about to make a dream come true.  Keep your plans flexible all month long, but, most especially in the days surrounding these special energies.  And speaking of energy, your levels should be high this month.  That is where you should be aiming in April as well, high that is!  You will have every available opportunity to properly promote yourself where your work is concerned but must be careful not to rattle relationships when doing same.  Overall though this is a month filled with insightful conversations and all the information you might possibly need to build a foundation for a fulfilling, secure and comfortable life.  Wear comfortable shoes especially on those days when you simply MUST take proactive and intentional steps.  Want to know what days I’m talking about?  Read on.

Best Friends Forever

Staff writer, Stephanie Becerra, gives food for thought about friendships and the lines that can be crossed when too much is shared and how it can affect romantic relationships. In the battle of significant other vs BFF, who would win in YOUR situation?

 

I’m not ashamed to admit that I have an unhealthy, codependent relationship with my best friend. We are basically in constant 24/7 communication, coordinate “best friend dates” and have each other’s work/school schedules on hand so we know where the other one is at all times of the day. Is it a problem? Well if we were romantically involved, most definitely it would be. It would be a perfect example of a possessive, overbearing relationship. However, since we are not, it is perfectly normal to demand to know where and what she is doing all times.

 

My point is this. I was watching NBC’s new show, “Best Friends Forever” last night and it got me thinking of what happens to best friends when a third person is added to the mix. The basic premise of the show consists of BFF #1 being hit with surprise divorce papers and being forced to move back in with BFF #2 who now has a serious live in boyfriend. Hijinks ensue.

 

The dynamic between best friend’s and romantic partners is tricky. If the change is tough for the best friend, imagine how intimidating it must be to be the third person walking into a relationship that’s already set with traditions and rituals, and where words are basically unnecessary because true best friends can communicate solely through facial expressions.

 

It is the classic case of choosing between your best friend and your partner. The choice is simple. Neither. It is possible to have two very deep, very meaningful, very different relationships. While your best friend will probably always be your go to person when your life is in shambles and you need someone to be fat with and watch The Notebook and cry, your partner will also be there when you need someone to hold you and tell you how beautiful you are. Both relationships can bring you happiness and satisfaction, the trick is knowing how to balance them. Also, I may be extremely biased but “Best Friends Forever” is hilarious and I highly recommend it.

My Best Friend Slept With My Husband. Now What?

This article by staff writer, Rigby Rat, tackles a situation that is a nightmare almost every woman never wants to be a part of. If you have ever been in this situation or know someone who has, please feel free to email me with your story to share.

This happened to a friend of mine. She was incredibly civilized about the ordeal. Hubby’s breach of the marriage contract did not send her swallowing fistfuls of antidepressants, or grabbing the largest steak knife from the kitchen drawer and hurling it at the bastard. Instead, she waxed philosophical. For several days she methodically revisited her history with her husband. Then she looked for the answer to this question: What part did I play in my husband’s straying?

Does a woman play a part in her husband’s straying? Absolutely. Men are insecure creatures; more so than women. Bruise their ego and they step into another woman’s embrace (or a strip joint) for validation that they are worthy of love, sexual intimacy, and attention.

However, when a guy’s self-esteem is dwindling, that doesn’t give him the right to switch partners. Instead, he needs to sit you down and have a heart to heart. What should you do? Shut up and listen. Don’t bring up YOUR feelings, just zip it for once in your life and empathize. Pay attention to what he wants, or doesn’t want: more sex, more hand-holding, showers together, no name-calling, no arguments, a kiss goodbye every morning…

If your husband already slept with your best friend, it’s your decision as to whether you want to kick him in the nuts, or remain rationally calm. Know this: if you’re in a relationship, it takes two – two to make the relationship fail, or two to make the relationship succeed.

What did my friend do? She divorced her husband and remained amicable with him. He married the best friend. My friend attended the wedding. She harbors no ill will, carries no baggage, nor stuffs herself with chocolate bars and pints of Häagen-Dazs. Is this the answer for everyone? No. However, clemency and moving on sure beats the hell out of a lifetime of acrimony.
