As an Aries, you have to make it a point to avoid dating a Leo at all costs. You are just purely incompatible with one another and it’s likely that if you do get together, you will end up drawing the short straw in this scenario. You both have strong and fiery personalities and there is just no way that either of you could effectively contain yourselves within a single relationship.
Taurus (April 20 – May 21)
Like an Aries, you have to make sure that you never date a Leo as a Taurus. It might seem like a good idea at first. You like to place your romantic partners on a pedestal and Leos always like the feeling of being cherished. But it will never work because of how possessive, controlling, and territorial you can get in your relationships. Remember that the Leo values freedom and individuality above everything else.
Gemini (May 22 – June 21)
You can’t handle the life of secrecy and discretion that you will be forced to live if you get into a relationship with a Scorpio. You are loud and you are volatile and that’s why it could never work out with a Scorpio at all.
Cancer (June 22 – July 22)
Never date an Aries. As a Cancer, you are naturally withdrawn and you hate having to put yourself out there. You are very slow-paced and you never like to be rushed into doing anything. You constantly like to take your time and that’s why it would never work with an Aries. They are always living life on the fast lane and they will constantly be forcing you outside of your comfort zone even when you don’t feel like you’re ready for it.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
You could never date an Aquarius. Just forget about it. As a Leo, your ego is the most valuable thing to you whether you’re willing to admit it or not. And you can never count on an Aquarius to fluff your ego whenever you need. Remember that an Aquarius will call things like they see it. They will never beat around the bush and they won’t care about the kind of impact their words might have on your emotions. You need an ego-booster, and an Aquarius is far from being one.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
You can’t date a Capricorn if you are serious about getting into a strong relationship. As a Virgo, you are like a Capricorn in the sense that you are both practical and pragmatic. However, because of your pragmatic tendencies, you will have substantial difficulty with maintaining the sparks in your relationship. You really won’t be able to offset one another because of how alike you are.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Just don’t date a Cancer. It’s wrong. You wouldn’t be able to handle the weight of their emotions. Remember you have a happy-go-lucky attitude and you wouldn’t be able to take the heaviness that comes with the feelings of a Cancer.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)
You can’t afford to waste your time by dating a Pisces. As a Scorpio, you have to know that because of your personalities, a relationship between you and a Pisces would never work out. You have to understand that it’s virtually impossible for either of you to establish the kind of trust that two people need to make a proper mature relationship work in the long run.
Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)
Just avoid dating a Virgo. You can’t deal with someone so uptight. It would never work. You are too free-spirited and you value your freedom way too much. You could never be happy with a controlling Virgo.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)
Don’t date the Libra. It can be tempting to date the Libra. They are charismatic, attractive, and amiable. But you are in for a load of trouble if you allow yourself to become seduced by a Libra. Remember that a Libra is known to be fiscally irresponsible – and you hate that. You always like to make sure that your finances are always in check. And so you’re really risking your sanity if you allow yourself to date a Libra.
Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)
You independence matters to you. And that’s why the possessiveness of a Taurus wouldn’t bode well for your personality. You really want to live your own life but being in a relationship with a Taurus would make things difficult for you.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
The one Zodiac sign that you really need to avoid dating is the Gemini. As a Pisces, you are a lover of peace and harmony. However, the Gemini is never going to be able to give you the peace and harmony that you so desperately search for. Remember that the Gemini has a very volatile personality that you can never find stability in. So if you’re looking for peace and harmony in a Gemini, you’re looking in the wrong place.
The whole rule of ‘never explore strange noises in the basement/woods/haunted attic’ was created for the Aries people of the world. They are brave and adventurous to a fault. When a serial killer is on the loose, they won’t play it safe and will eventually be axed when they go off on their own to investigate.
(April 20th to May 21st)
A Taurus will nearly make it to the end, but their demise will be their independence. At some point someone will tell them what they should do for their own safety and they’ll think, “who the fuck are you?” and do their own thing. In scary movies, there’s safety in numbers.
(May 22nd to June 21st)
A Gemini will DEFINITELY be one of the first people to die. They see the good in everyone so they’ll be the one basically trying to make friends with the killer as he’s killing them. RIP Gemini.
(June 22nd to July 22nd)
Sweet, sweet Cancer might survive if they surround themselves with one or two stronger friends, but if they’re on their own — lol, no. Cancers are lovers, not fighters, they’ll be murdered doing something cool like going for a midnight swim (water sign yo) or making love to their honey.
(July 23rd to August 22nd)
TBH a Leo would probably end up being the killer. They are smart and creative enough to pull it off, and they’d love the attention that came with their extremely infamous death.
(August 23rd to September 22nd)
A Virgo would not survive a horror movie. It’s hard to imagine a Virgo being so impractical as to find themselves in any setting in which a horror movie would take place. They would never get lost on an abandoned road, feel tempted to explore a now defunct insane asylum, and they’re savvy enough with real estate transactions not to purchase a house that was built cursed burial ground. They are the minor character we are only introduced to in order to seem them murdered in some spectacular way.
(September 23rd to October 22nd)
A Libra would probably survive a horror movie. They are too well-liked to be anyone’s target and they are smart enough to figure out how to get out of a bad situation.
(October 23rd to November 22nd)
A Scorpio would survive a horror movie, but only because they are willing to put up a hard fight to get through it. Scorpios are scrappy. They will fight tooth and nail to survive.
(November 23rd to December 21st)
Let’s be honest, we all love Sagittarius people, but they definitely aren’t going to survive. They’ll be the comic relief that cracks jokes through the whole movie and then dies in a scary-but-hilarious way like drinking a beer bong full of blood.
(December 22nd to January 20th)
A Capricorn would not survive a horror movie. They are shrewd and adept, sure, but they also have a likeability problem. They are the accountant that gets murdered after yelling at a sweet old lady for being slow and everyone in the audience cheers inside.
(January 21st to February 18th)
An Aquarius’ sense of charity would be their downfall. They are the person who picks up hitchhikers or stops to help someone who falls down and then gets murdered. The every man/woman for themselves mantra you need to survive a horror movie would never appeal to an Aquarius.
(February 19th to March 20th)
A Pisces would survive a horror movie. They would be the quiet genius you don’t really pay attention to until they end. Pisces are creative and underrated, they’d notice ways to get out or hide that other people wouldn’t see — they can also kill a bitch if need be.
I’m the type of woman who will love you, but only when I’m ready. I’m not the type of woman who will sit around and jump at the first person who shows interest in me. I’m not the type of woman to go out and look for love. I’m not the type of woman who will settle. I’m not the type of woman who fears being alone.
I’m the type of woman who will love whole-heartedly when I meet the right person. I’m the type of woman who will care for you, surprise you, treat you well and let you know how much you mean to me.
I’m the kind of woman who always wants to love deeper. I want to learn your strengths and weaknesses. I want to know your favorite way to spend Sunday afternoons and what you like to do in thunderstorms. I want to know about your childhood and how your past shaped you into who you are today.
But I’m also the woman who will stand up for myself, every time. I won’t let you push me around. I won’t let you walk all over me. I won’t stand for being treated any less than I know I’m worth. I won’t let you tell me what I can and cannot do.
I’m the kind of woman who hates anything and anyone that tries to control me or belittle me. I won’t let you try to hide who I really am in front of your friends or your boss. I’m not the kind of woman to hide in the background. I’m not the kind of woman to sit back and watch you do all the work. I’m going to be next to you, I’m going to be sitting by your side. I want to be sitting by your side. I want to walk hand in hand with you through every step of the world.
I’m the kind of woman that will never make you question if I’ll be there for you.
I’m also the kind of woman who will push you. Who will help you strive to be the best version of yourself, to live up to your full potential. I won’t let you sit on the sideline and let life pass you by without getting in the game. I want you to know how strong you are, how great you are. I want you to love yourself like I will love you. I’m the kind of woman who will make you challenge yourself.
I’m the kind of woman who will always be as I am. I’m not the kind of woman who will change to please someone else. I’m not going to play dress up to make you happy; I will only do it if it makes me happy. I’m not the kind of woman to force a fake smile when something is eating me on the inside. I’m the kind of woman that will tell you and work through it with you.
Most importantly, I’m the type of woman who will love you with every fiber in me, but I won’t put up with your shit. That’s the kind of woman I am.
2017 was a year of ups and downs for most of us. No one can handle roller coasters better than a Leo. Leos almost crave a challenge, because they find it that much more rewarding. They have accomplished more than they could ever imagine this year. While they are still always planning ahead, Leo still knows how to enjoy the moment. In 2017, Leos learned how to take everything in and appreciate it. Leos took everything at face value. Instead of blaming themselves and being insecure (like most signs are guilty of), Leo learned how to turn the negative into a positive. While they could beat themselves up when something does not work out, Leos do quite the opposite. Leos do not blame themselves, they blame the situation.
The situation or scenario was not right for them. It was not meant to be, and that is okay. Leos know when to get in and when to get out. They are not one to waste time, which is why they conquered 2017. Instead of dwelling on failure, they moved onto to their next success. You can not be good at everything, even Proud Leos know that. Leos’ acceptance of reality is one of their strongest qualities. Leos are not worrywarts, they are not easily torn down. Their confidence can come off as cocky sometimes, but it never disappoints them down. It’s true that confidence is everything. Fake it until you make it.
In 2017 Leos accepted that they can’t be the best at everything. However, they still want to be the best at most things. This undying determination always keeps Leos on top. What makes Leos unstoppable is their faith. They are dreamers with a work hard attitude. When the world is turning their back on them, their dreams are not crushed. It is just a cloudy day to them, it is not the end of their world.
Almost perfect year for the perfectionist Virgo. Almost Perfect is the definition of a Virgo, because nothing will ever be perfect enough for a Virgo. They accomplished most of what they wanted. Virgo will always have that one regret, of taking an extra nap when they could have been more productive. They have endless nights of edits and sleepless nights of anxiety. Hard work does pay off and Virgo is living proof of that. No matter how hard Virgo can criticize themselves, they never truly doubt themselves. They know they can work like a machine. When there is a coffee there is a way. Well, make that a liter of coffee.
Although Virgo can be a tad insecure, it is really all in your head. It is mind over matter. You accomplish more in a year, than some people do in a lifetime. The reason you are not always on top is, because you always find a way to beat yourself up. You are not flawless no one is.
Even when you are number 1, you are still competing with your past self. The anxiety of staying on top can drive anyone crazy, especially sensitive Virgo. You are always thinking of ways you can outdo yourself. You are terrified of peaking, you are always searching for new ways to achieve greatness. As I said nothing is enough for Virgo. They should learn to enjoy their moment in the sun, instead of planning ahead for that sunburn they do not even have yet.
In 2017 Virgo learned to live a little. They took more risks than they ever have before. Virgo is still debating over their last pro/con list, but baby steps… You are not going skydiving overnight.
You live in your own world, which is why every year is your year Aquarius. You truly believe in creating your own destiny. You are amazing at tuning out outside noise. You do not let negativity or doubt get to you. The only thing that matters to you, is what you truly believe. If Aquarius genuinely believes in what they are doing, nothing in the world can stop them. They are different. They are the changers in the world. Aquarians are the dreamers, that never let harsh reality stand in their way.
As positive as Aquarius may be, the real world can kick their ass some time. They are not the most compromising bunch. Yet life is all about compromises. You can’t run from what you can’t change. A temporary fix is just a band aid, not a solution. Not everyone can go along with your daydream world. People can lose their patience with you, when you are always living in lala land. You have Peter Pan syndrome and we love and hate you for it.
Aquarians are truly magical people. The problem is not everyone believes in magic. You will continue to run into obstacles, if you are not realistic. Avoiding these obstacles is also not attainable. You need to make peace with the real world and your version of reality. Dreaming can only get you so far. You must take greater action. Organization has never been your friend Aquarius, but you need to start making plans and sticking to them. The only way you can achieve your goals is with effort. You can be the most talented person in the world, but being lazy will kill you more than anything.
In 2017 Aquarius learned to have hope with logic. Dreaming is not always enough. They need to keep their dreams alive, but start living in reality. Aquarius learned the power of communication and consequences. You do not always land on your feet when you jump. People are not always at your beck and call. Everything is give and take and not just when you feel like giving.
He loves me, he loves me not. Libras are the queen of indecisive not just with their love life, but with everything in their life. Which career path to take? Should I go back to school or should I travel now while I can? Can I afford to move out? Do I want a roommate or do I want to move in with a partner? Black or white crop top? Do I trust buying it online? I should really try it on first…. Gigi or Bella? Libras answer a question with another question.
Libras are filled with possibilities, but they tend to self-sabotage. They spend all their time over analyzing, making pro/con list, jumping from opportunity to opportunity, they can never make a decision that sticks. Libras are very social, with that being said they can have a short attention span. They can be passionate one moment and moving on to bigger and better things the next.
Libras are not quitters when they finally decide to commit, they are in it for the long haul. However, this is not always beneficial. Timing is everything. Knowing what you don’t want anymore, is just as important as knowing what you want. Everything has a timeline. Sometimes it is not quitting, it is letting go. It is not called giving up, it called growth.
In 2017 Libra spent most of the year questioning themselves. The second they learn to trust themselves they are free, of their own imprisonment. This year Libra cared less about, what other people wanted from them. This was a testing year for them. They tried things they always wanted to try and decided if it doesn’t work out, there will be something else for them. There will be something better.
Sagittarius says yes to now, and says no to later. Sagittarius are known for living in the moment, but the present can affect your future. Sagittarius are known to make rash decisions- which usually bring them temporary happiness, yet they do need to spend more time on long-term plans. Sagittarius grew up a lot this year, they learned how to be serious and still have fun. However they may still be telling you, what you want to hear. Old habits die hard.
While Sagittarians have learned they can not do everything all at once, it does not mean they have not stopped trying to. With endless options and the lack of restraint to say the word No. Like Libra, Sagittarius can often find themselves at a crossroad. While Libra will overanalyze until the death of them. Sagittarius is more likely to leap before they look. Sags are huge risk takers, they know they have one life and they want the most of it.
Prioritizing will always be an issue for fun-loving Sags. There is so much they want to experience and so little time to do it. We all admire your thirst for adventure. As much as you love to fly Sag, you need to learn how to keep your feet on the ground too.
In 2017 Sagittarius realized they haven’t done it all, but they have done most of it. Instead of knocking off another venturesome item off their bucket list, Sagittarius got serious. They realized they need to do something scarier than jumping off a plane. They need to grow up. Their next goal for 2018 will not be a 3rd trip to Asia, but a new career plan. They have lived the good life and they are grateful for it, but it is time Sagittarius start grinding.
2017 was a great turning point for Taurus. They broke themselves and rebuilt themselves into better people. Taurians are the type of the people, that only learn through experience. You can give someone all the advice you want, but nothing teaches you like falling. Mistakes are really what stubborn bull Taurus needs to whip them back into shape. They have only learnt when they have lost.
While Taurus is usually the first to raise their hand to help others, they need to realize they need to help themselves first. You can not fix someone, if you yourself is still broken. Taurians are incredibly devoted and they have a soft spot for the broken bird. However focusing on someone else’s problems (as chivalrous as that might be..) does not diminish your own. Your hero mentality is a distraction from your own issues. You can waste most of the year and most of your energy on people who do not deserve you.
In 20117 Taurus learned the importance of being selfish. Their helpful nature will always be one of their best qualities, however it seems they can be displacing their emotions. Instead of focusing on saving the world, start with yourself Taurus. In 2017 Taurus spent the latter half of the year, reflecting on themselves. They have made active steps and changes to make 2018 a very successful year.
Capricorns usually land on top, but this year they got beaten up. Capricorns are one of the hardest working signs, they usually succeed at literally everything (we kinda hate you for this…but we know you deserve it). They are the true definition of practise makes perfect. They are the symbol of earning. But what happens when you do everything right and everything still comes crashing down? What happens when you have no one to blame? What happens when all your hard work seems thrown out the window? What happens when all your efforts seem like they have gone to waste? For most signs I would say a nervous breakdown is on it’s way… but not Capricorn.
Even in the midst of a tornado Capricorn can stay strong through anything. 2017 was a test for Capricorn’s limits. They proved in the hallow of darkness they still found a gleam of light. While Capricorns are not always known for being the most positive, they are not necessarily negative. Capricorns are the realists of the zodiac. Capricorns do not dwell on the negative. They also do not sweep things under the rug. Capricorns take things at face value. The way they get over something, is to throw themselves into something else. This is a reflection of their goal-oriented mentality. When an obstacle is presented instead of letting it overcome you, Capricorn focuses on a project. They throw themselves in anything and everything they can to remain productive.
Being productive is good. Being productive is being busy. If you are too busy working on yourself, you have no time to dwell on the negative (that is out of your control). Some people can distract themselves in a self-destructive way, but not Capricorn. Capricorn is not delusional, they are not pretending their problems are not there. However, they are choosing to not let their problems consume them. They are focusing on other tasks like fitness, career goals, spending more time with family, rather than letting something take control of their whole life. Capricorns are the master of self-control. They always know how to stay poised in chaos.
In 2017 Capricorns learned while they are the master of most, they are not the master of everything. It was a hard pill to swallow, watching their efforts disappoint them. Yet they learned it is better to cut their losses than to hold onto something dying. Capricorns are far from quitters, but this year they knew when to give up. Their hard-working efforts should be saved on something worth it, and someone who appreciates them.
In the midst of all your running, you have finally stopped to look around. You have taken a moment to breathe. You have taken time to think. Now you are more confused than ever. Truth be told Pisces the answer to your problems, is usually another problem. You have explored every option and have finally exhausted yourself. Instead of running, you have finally learned to sit still and look for yourself (without escaping). It is much harder to figure out what you want, when you continuously jump from one thing to the next.
You are finally sticking to one thing and giving it your whole heart. Pisces is done experimenting, they are ready to commit. With that being said, they have no idea how to do this (because they never have..) Like Capricorn says “practice makes perfect”. Pisces have some catching up to do on adulting, but that is okay we all run at different paces. However, unlike other signs, Pisces has no regrets.
Pisces truly live their best life every day. They love experiencing all that life has to offer. While other people could criticize them on “not being enough of a grown-up”, Pisces wouldn’t want that “boring 9-5 adult life” anyways. Pisces are huge dreamers, which is why they are usually misunderstood. Not everyone can grasp the mind of an artist. Some people are far too cynical to understand Pisces aspirations. While Pisces can be emotional, they are quite good at not letting other people tear them down. Pisces are not here to impress you. They actually hate know-it alls, so if you dismiss them (it actually helps them). Pisces will do anything to prove a naysayer wrong.
In 2017 Pisces learned while passion is important, so is focus. Once they dedicate their energy to one main thing over six little things, they will be unstoppable. While emotional intelligence is significant, they also need to learn how to be rationale. They are very intuitive, but that will only get you so far. Ideas do not get past the light bulb stage, without a plan. Do not let your laziness make you settle to mediocrity. You are better than that Pisces.
The truth is Cancer you are the most sensitive sign, but you hate for anyone to know that. Half the time you put on this fake facade of “pretending not to care”, which only leaves you more hurt. When you do not speak up, nothing changes. If you do not express when people hurt you, they will believe their behaviour is acceptable. If you keep reassuring people that “everything is okay”…even when it is not, people will continue to hurt you.
Speaking up does not make you weak, staying silent makes you weak. There is a time and place for everything. You do need to choose your battles, however, you can not always roll over and let your pride win. You are truly inhibiting yourself, by holding back. By keeping your cool you are losing a whole lot more. Subconsciously you sabotage yourself before you even get started. You care way too much about how other people perceive you. Stop looking at them, it is making you trip before you can walk.
You need to realize the only person’s opinion that matters is yours Cancer. Do not be afraid to chase after what you love (even if it could be the unconventional/unpopular choice). Once you stop trying to please others, you will be less insecure. Do what you want, when you want it. The people who love you for who you are, will still be there (even if you stop baking them cookies).
2017 was the year you took off. You made a huge risk, and we are all proud of you. Yet the question is Cancer…. are you going to keep this up? Or are you going to go back to your old doormat ways? Do not let this newfound discovery just be an escape. This change was a crossroads for you, and it is your choice of where to go from here. Decide what you want for once, not what everyone else wants for you. Only you know how to make yourself happy.
Gemini your split personality has the tendency to fool people (you can even fool yourself). The sign of the twin, Gemini meets somewhere in the middle between heaven and hell. You are in a constant battle with your conscience and your desires. Your passion versus being practical. Slow and steady wins the race or jumping off a plane? The problem is Gemini, you are always torn. You are in a constant torment between your conflicting traits. You are impossible to predict because you barely know what is going on. Geminis are the Alice and Wonderland of the zodiac. They are extremely curious, but their endeavors usually just leave them more dazed and confused than when they started. They are a ping pong going back and forth until the death of them.
You are a quick learner and you adapt even faster. Gemini is a sight for sore eyes in any social setting, they always find an unique way to capture everyone’s attention. You have many different worlds Gemini, and you are a master in all of them. However, nothing in your life currently fits. Everything is in conflict with each other. It is time to make those tough choices you were avoiding. You can no longer get away with balancing everything. Gemini is a master juggler, but even you are about to drop the ball. You need to figure out which lifestyle works for you because you do not have the energy to keep running around anymore. You are jeopardizing all your options, by not making a decision. Not everyone is going to wait for you Gemini. You may lose people if you treat them like options and not priorities.
2017 was the year of clean up for Gemini. They made those dreaded decisions and cut out a lot of the fat in their life. It is hard to let go Gemini, but it is harder to keep holding on. This year will be tough, but you will thank yourself later for it. Remember Gemini, the truth will set you free.
You always have your eye on the ball Aries. Your determination is nothing to be reckoned with, however, your self-control could use some work. When everything is going your way Aries, you are a delight to be around. The hostess with the mostess, the belle of the ball, but this is the best case scenario. Sometimes your spit of fire can reign terror and not passion. You are a superhero Aries, use your powers for good not evil.
When the world is tearing you down, do not tear someone else down to make yourself feel better. Do not point fingers, look into the mirror. Once you learn humility, you will be free of your own ego. Admitting those hard truths to yourself, won’t be as hard as you think. You will feel a great relief, once you stop hiding behind others and take responsibility for your actions.
This year was the year that your lies came down like a house of cards. But, it’s okay you are an Aries…. you pick yourself up better than anyone. You are an unstoppable nature, when your mind is clear. Aries are very goal-oriented. If their focus is directed positively (not out of spite) then their results should be successful. Do things for yourself Aries, not to prove a point.
“Expectation is the root of all heartache” William Shakespeare.
No one has higher expectations than a Scorpio. Aries, Capricorn, and Scorpio are all intense goal-oriented signs, which is why they could find themselves more easily disappointed. They work so hard and usually it all pays off. However, the odd time that it does not, their world can come crashing down. Scorpios are not used to failing. This is unacceptable to them. They have a picture of the way their life is supposed to look. They have an image they want to uphold. However, the masques Scorpio wears are about to come off.
While Scorpio is one of the most honest signs (sometimes a little too brutally honest), they have been holding things in this year (which is unlike them). Their bottled emotions are finally about to burst, they can not live with secrets. Unfortunately, not everyone can appreciate your honesty, your truths might bury you. Not everyone is as strong as you Scorpio, some people like to live in an ignorance is bliss bubble. Yet Scorpios hates white lies more than anything. They will not be able to breathe again, until they release themselves from their own guilt.
Some people will appreciate your courage for being truthful Scorpio, and some people simply won’t…sometimes pride overrides love. We can not always come back. It is lonely on the top Scorpio.
In 2017 Scorpio unleashed themselves from their sins. Some people forgave them, some people couldn’t. The most important lesson is, Scorpio is learning to forgive themselves. You can not get anywhere if you continue to beat yourself up. The past is in the past. 2018 is a new year. Your ghosts only follow you, if you let them.
Sky watchers are in for a treat over the coming January as NASA have announced that they expect to see incredibly rare Moon presentations at various points in the month beginning with the first supermoon of the year which will appear on New Year’s Day.
Rare super blue moon to appear in January
The supermoon will be the first full moon of the year, a phenomenon which is referred to as the wolf moon, following the notion that wolves howl at full moons. The appearance of the first full moon of the year would be special enough, but this first full moon will also be a supermoon.
More unusually, this will be one of three supermoons occurring in a row. The first supermoon occurred on December 3rd, the second will appear on New Year’s Day and the final supermoon of the season will appear on January 31st.
Looking to January 31
According to NASA, the supermoon of January 31st is expected to be the most spectacular and worthy of staying up late for. The space agency explains that this supermoon will be an incredibly rare experience. It is quite unusual for full moons to appear within the same month as one another meaning that this moon presentation is a ‘blue moon’ – which occurs only every two and half years. In addition to this, the super blue moon will feature a total lunar eclipse which occurs approximately every six months.
A representative from NASA writes on their official website that during the lunar eclipse “The Moon will lose its brightness and take on an eerie, fainter-than-normal glow from the scant sunlight that makes its way through Earth’s atmosphere. Often cast in a reddish hue because of the way the atmosphere bends the light, totally eclipsed Moons are sometimes called ‘blood moons.'”
Noah Petro, a research scientist, based NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center has said that the fascinating and rare sight will be visible to people living in the eastern United States, but they will have to get up very early morning if they want to see it with their own eyes.
However, even if people are not able to see the stunning moon over the coming month, Petro reminds them that the Moon is always worth looking at. “The supermoons are a great opportunity for people to start looking at the Moon, “he said, “not just that once, but every chance they have!”
At the New Republic, Christopher Beam looked into horoscope-related hiring choices in China, where “astrology-based discrimination is real.” He reports that astrological signs often influence employment, based on assumptions about personality and perceived compatibility with other signs. Beam writes:
In this astrological version of natural selection, no one has it tougher than Virgos, born between Aug. 23 and Sept. 22. The persecution is mostly playful. This month, Virgos have been taking a ribbing online for the usual sins: They’re picky, they’re spoiled, they’re fussy to the point of being obsessive-compulsive … An online survey conducted by Sina this week asked, “Which astrological sign has the most trouble finding work?” Virgo won—well, lost—by a long shot.
The maligned Virgos, meanwhile, have begun a campaign to reclaim their reputation. Typical Virgo. They just want to put their exasperating diligence to work — for you, hopefully! Please reconsider their applications. Don’t forget to double-check their references. They just love the concept of double-checking, that’s all.
The early stages of romance can be quite the rollercoaster ride. It’s a series of ups and downs with a few twists and turns in between. But that’s what we sign up for when we take a chance on falling in love. We can’t just pick and choose the parts that we want. We have to be willing to go through the motions. We have to be able to take things as they come and we can’t afford to rush.
There are phases that come with building physical intimacy with another person and we can’t just speed through these phases if we want to do things right. We have to be meticulous with our ways. So what are the phases of intimacy? At what phase are you currently in with your relationship? How do you know when your levels of intimacy are practically rock solid? Read on until the end of this article to find out the answers to these questions.
1. Initial infatuation.
It’s thrilling. It’s exhilarating. It’s a rush of blood to the head. You just meet someone for the first time who actually makes you feel different. You encounter a person who seems to tick off all of the things on your checklist for the perfect romantic partner. Things are going great so far and you know that this really has the potential to be something special.
The infatuation phase of intimacy is always great. It’s the phase where you feel like nothing could possibly go wrong. It’s where we completely suspend our rational behavior and we walk on the clouds of happiness and romance. Think of the initial infatuation phase as the part of your relationship where you are actually building the foundation of your intimacy. This is where intimacy is perceived to be at its most ideal for a lot of couples.
2. The landing of the flight.
Think of this phase of intimacy in your relationship as an airplane that’s about to make it’s landing. It’s different for every couple. There are so many variables that come into play in this phase. A smooth landing depends on the skills and experience of the pilots. The weather must also be in cooperation. There are plenty of things that are going on and they must all be taken into consideration. This is the phase of intimacy where people will really start to get rid of their rose colored gasses that were there during the initial infatuation phase. This is when they really start to realize that perfection doesn’t exist after all. This is where the raw imperfect natures of their relationship really come to life – and they could pose as potential threats to the intimacy of a relationship. Some landings are rough and some are smooth. But it’s not the defining moment of a relationship at all.
3. The role assignments.
You’ve practically seen the relationship’s good and bad side. If you’re still together after that, then it means that you still believe that the level of intimacy that you established with one another in the first phase has some real potential. But now, you take a pragmatic approach to your relationship. You can no longer afford to just be walking on clouds all the time. You really have to acknowledge that you have to get stuff done as a couple. You need to have your share of roles and responsibilities. You understand that intimacy isn’t always going to look pretty. You have to embrace the grind of love and relationships if you are going to move forward in your relationship together.
4. The re-invigoration.
This is the phase of intimacy wherein you both go back to your roots. This is where you take yourselves back to the initial thrill and joy that you used to feel in the infatuation phase of your relationship. This is where you take a step back to just try and remember the greatest things about your relationship – the happiness that you can find in one another. This is where you just remind yourselves of the reasons why you got together in the first place and why you’re both still willing to stick things out together. This is the phase of intimacy where you can really start to feel like you have something stable and real.
5. The Love
And at the end of it all, the ultimate goal of building on intimacy is love. This is why you chose to stick things through with one another. It’s essentially the evolution of your intimacy into something that is real, hot, and heavy. If your intimacy served as the foundation for your building, your love is what is going to take you to the next level with one another. Love gives you the courage and the tools to take your relationship even further.
There is absolutely no denying the truth that Zodiac signs can reveal about a person’s character and personality. That is why it comes to no surprise at all that a huge bulk of men turn to Zodiac signs in trying to determine their most suitable life partners. This post is then dedicated to all the men who are relying on the knowledge of the Zodiacs to find their perfect brides. Before you start buying those engagement rings, improve your chances of getting a happy marriage by reading more about the best kinds of women to spend a lifetime with. These are the absolute best women to marry based on their Zodiac signs.
If you have ever met a Cancer woman before, then you would know that they are some of the most intense and passionate people on earth. They are always intense in their expression of love for the things and people that they are passionate about. They are the types of women who would go through extreme lengths to protect their love and romantic engagements. They are the kinds of women who would never miss an opportunity to let their men know just how much they are loved and cared for. That is why it would make a lot of sense for men to want to wed Cancer women. They would go to the moon and back just to make sure that their men feel safe and secure in their love.
Another thing that you should know about Cancer women is that they have a tendency to sensationalize a lot of things. This can be seen as a minor drawback in getting into a relationship with a Cancer woman, but it shouldn’t be enough to turn you off to the prospect of marrying her. A Cancer woman still brings lots of very good things to the table, and you shouldn’t hesitate tying the knot with one as soon as the opportunity arises.
They are very family-oriented people who know what it takes make a great home environment for you and your future children. They know their way around the house like not many people do. They always manage to promote great chemistry and positive vibrations within the household. They are also great at cooking and you will never go hungry so as long as you are together. Another benefit of marrying a Cancer woman is that you are marrying a natural educator. She is very smart, patient, and eloquent.
Two of the things that she prioritizes above all others when finding potential mates are respect and complete honesty.
An Aries woman is the kind of girl who has the power to bring men to their knees. They are incredibly captivating and they know how to use this power to their advantage. They are immensely beautiful creatures and they are very ambitious people. They are hardworking and they never hesitate when it comes to going after things that they want. They are very goal-oriented, and they always try their best to do things the right and noble way. She has big dreams, and she is only looking for men who are able to dream as big as she does. She doesn’t have the patience for men who aren’t willing to work as hard as her. She also has the power to command the respect of every single person she meets. She is able to walk the talk and she always manages to wow people with her accomplishments.
She is also the kind of woman who pushes her man to be just as strong and as successful as she is. She never settles for mediocrity and her zeal for excellence is just infectious. They are very responsible human beings and they are also very willing to own up to their mistakes. She would also make a very good mother who is just born to raise future trailblazers and innovators.
She will only choose to be with men whose characters are strong enough to match her own. She doesn’t want to waste her time with men who won’t be able to handle the heat that she brings to the table.
Leo women will be some of the proudest and strongest characters that you will ever have the opportunity of meeting. They are modern-day Wonder Women who possess uncommon levels of strength and determination. A Leo woman is not one who merely settles for the everyday kind of guy. She only looks for the men who are able to separate themselves from others; the men who are able to rise above the rest. The most captivating part about them is that when they do find the men who they feel are worthy of their love, they don’t really have to do much to win their affections. Men are falling at Leo women’s feet left and right. They are very charming, charismatic, and attractive women who make it easy for a lot of men to fall for them.
One other major benefit of dating a Leo woman is being safe in the knowledge that she is going to be very loyal to you. You would never have to worry about a Leo woman being unfaithful in the relationship. She is very respectful and she always trusts that you would also grant her the respect that she deserves.
When it comes to Zodiac signs that know how to make relationship works, you could do much worse than these 4 particular signs. It is common knowledge that relationships are never easy, nor are they ever perfect. Relationships can get very ugly fairly quickly for just about any couple. The best kinds of relationships have people who are able to practice extreme patience, humility, understanding, and empathy for one another. These people understand that open communication is essential in building a strong foundation for a long-lasting relationship. Successful relationships don’t just happen out of thin air. There are many variables that go into having a relationship that has the potential to go all the way. Everyone in a successful long-term relationship can attest that sustaining a good partnership with someone is definitely a grind; a grind that you have to tackle day by day.
Maturity is another important aspect of building a quality relationship that is able to withstand trials and adversities. It is practically impossible for immature people to sustain a relationship considering the complexity and the hardships that these relationships bring. Being in a relationship can wreak havoc on a person’s emotional and mental state. They carry with them a lot of pressure and responsibility, and not everyone is able to take that pressure. A lot of people can crumble amidst all that emotional weight, and it always has the power to topple any relationship.
A lot of people also have tendencies to lean over towards shorter flings as opposed to long-term partnerships. Their personalities just never allow for them to find the appeal in committed and sustainable relationships. Perhaps they just naturally gravitate towards spontaneity. The long-lasting relationships always have to have a semblance of steadiness and consistency. Another factor that you have to take note of with regards to the success of a relationship is the timing and context of a relationship. The people involved have to be at the right places and times in their lives to be open to committing themselves to a union with another person. They have to be comfortable with sharing their lives with a significant other.
While getting with any of these 4 Zodiac signs don’t necessarily guarantee success, they do significantly improve your chances of finding success in a relationship. It’s because they possess a lot of the qualities and characteristics that you look for in people who are able to sustain relationships. While it may be difficult to find the right people with whom you can build a solid foundation for a relationship with, you can be comforted in the fact that these people are definitely out there. All you need is a little more patience and open-mindedness. These are the 4 Zodiac signs you should be looking out for if you want to be dating someone with a long-term relationship in mind.

One of the most important things that women look for in a man is sincerity. A woman always wants a man who is genuine in his intents to love her. No woman ever wants to date a man who is selfish and only gets into a relationship thinking only of himself. Generosity, thoughtfulness, empathy, and sensitivity are all important personality traits that men need to have in order to make their women happy.
However, some women will be unlucky enough to get into relationships with men who will not prioritize them. They will be too blinded by love, they are willing to get emotionally abused by a man who wouldn’t even think about her. So how do you know you’re not being blinded by your love? How do you know that you’re not dating a man who is just using you for his own personal pleasures? There are some red flags that could help you out.
Here are 14 signals that your man is just plain selfish and doesn’t ever think about you:
1. He refuses to engage in talk about commitment.
If he doesn’t like discussing commitment with you, then he’s probably using you for his own personal pleasures. He doesn’t really care about you because he’s not really invested in this relationship. You’re practically expendable in his eyes.
2. Your friends tell you that he’s not being genuine.
Sometimes, the best perspective on your relationship is one that comes from the outside. Your irrational love could be blinding you to the truth, and your friends need to be honest to you when this happens. If they’re telling you that he’s no good, then maybe you should heed their advice.
3. He’s selfish in the bedroom.
He doesn’t care about whether you’re happy with his performance in the bedroom or not. All that is important is that you make him happy. He never asks you about what you like or what you’re feeling and so in the end, he’s the only one who is satisfied.
4. He doesn’t introduce you to his friends or family.
Friends and family are always important aspects of a person’s life. If he doesn’t introduce you to his friends or family, then maybe you aren’t an important part of his life. If he really did value you and this relationship that you have, then he would have no problem introducing you to his friends and family. He would want your social circles to merge if he truly cared about you.
5. He depends on you for money.
If he’s always looking to you to buy him his toys or to help him get out of financial binds, then that is a definite cause for concern. He should be ready to love you whether you are rich or poor. If at some point, you start having financial problems, he would be the first guy to run out the door.
6. He’s always asking you to do him favors.
He treats you as if you’re his nanny. He asks you to do him favors to the point where you’re babying him while he gets to have fun all the time.
7. He doesn’t think about how you’re feeling.
He doesn’t care about the repercussions of his action. He just does whatever he wants regardless of how his actions will end up making you feel or what effects they can have on you as a person. All he cares about is himself and what he can do to keep himself satisfied.
8. He doesn’t express his love or affection often.
Kisses, hugs, and expressions of intimacy are practically out of the question unless he needs something from you. He never shows you any gratitude and he always has trouble expressing his love for you. He doesn’t feel like it’s important to make you feel appreciated as a person and as a girlfriend.
9. He’s inconsistent.
If he’s hot one minute, and he’s cold the next, then that is definitely a bad sign. His actions and moods are always motivated by his own wants, and not on your personal needs in the relationship.
10. He never opens up to you.
He’s very secretive and he never likes to open up to you. As a result, you don’t know much about him or his interests. You see a man with no personality because he never lets you all the way in despite the fact that you’re an open book to him.
11. He only contacts you when he wants something.
The way he interacts with you is purely dependent on what you can offer him. If he doesn’t need anything from you for the moment, then it’s highly unlikely that he’s going to make contact with you.
12. You don’t go out on dates together.
If you don’t go out on dates together, then it’s either he’s embarrassed to be seen in public with you or he feels that you’re just not worth taking out. Either way, you’re in a bad relationship and you probably deserve much better.
13. He has a reputation for being a bad guy.
If he has a rep for being a guy who treats girls badly, then most likely, he’s doing the same for you. Those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it, right?
14. He’s seeing other girls.
The one true sign that he’s being a selfish little prick is when he doesn’t stay loyal to you. When he makes himself available to other ladies, then that just means he really doesn’t give a damn about your feelings and emotions. He’s not invested in your relationship and it’s time to just cut him loose.
