Astrology in real life
I was talking to satori and she reminded me of this old post. The comments are amusing. I was right about this. I would not have made the claim if I couldn’t back it up!
I think this is such an important topic and rarely (if ever) discussed in life or in astrology.

Astrology and Fashion
A Cancer often presents in a style that is a bit pulled in and pulled back but with a distinct style that most Cancers love. When first meeting or seeing a Cancer one might find them to be less than talkative and more likely to be watching others. The Cancer type flaunts the chest area with clothing whether it’s with a neckline that is low, ties in a bow, is decorated with some sort of pattern or jewels/sequins around the neckline or with jewelry that decorates that area of the body. The male Cancer often lifts to develop a bigger chest or wears clothing that shows their upper body if they have an upper body to flaunt. As the Cancer observes they will eventually put themselves in a position to meet the person they decide they trust or have interest in.

Fashion Through The Zodiac
Virgo women, deep down you are woman who likes to look nice. It may not be the first thing on your mind or even the fifth thing on your mind to go shopping and have a good time but you like to look nice, pulled together and yes, attractive! It’s something that if you try, you will like; putting yourself together well is a fun thing once you commit to it. A mind-girl, you think before you feel. Art and fashion are about feel in a lot of ways. But, you can think your way through it and come up with what you love best: a uniform.

Ask the collective
Over the last couple days there have been a slew of comments that characterize Virgos as controlling. I don’t get this at all. I consider the Cardinal signs to be the control freaks of the zodiac without question.
Now don’t get pissed off at me, I have both Capricorn and Libra prominent and it takes one to know but for the people who think Virgos are controlling – Please ‘splain to Lucy.
In my mind, Virgos communicate what is wrong with you and then go off to do their other work. Um…
Who is the control freak King (or Queen) of the zodiac?
I have been married for a little over a year. When I was dating, I knew my husband would never live anywhere other than his family’s land, and I told him I would try to live there once we were married. It is beautiful where we live – however we are about 40 miles from any town to work in. It is getting redundant driving so far every day, when we could move closer. Also, I am about to finish my Masters degree and when I do, I would like to be closer to a good employer; I do not want to drive 1.5 hours to work daily.
I have tried like I promised, but I hate it here! He also has all his friends and family near, who are constantly at our home. His friends and family think I am different since I am from the city, and we have really clashed. They also feel that if I do not like the area, that I should just leave. As a matter of fact my Mother-in-Law asked me to leave, and her mother said I needed to leave before we had a child and he “gets stuck with me forever”.
Sadly my husband is too nice to say anything to them for comments like this. Needless to say, I am miserable. I cry myself to sleep, I am losing weight, and I desperately need my husband to see my point of view! I don’t want a divorce, and he says he doesn’t either; however, he also says he cannot move from here, and that it would be to hard on him.
I am a hard worker. I take care of the bills, the yard, the cooking, and cleaning. I also work two jobs while pursuing my Masters degree. Do you think I am being unfair in needing to be closer to my employer and civilization? I am on the verge of running away! Please help!
I feel very bad for you because it seems you are surrounded by the enemy. Just who is on your side here? No one I can identify.
Now I am very sorry but I don’t think your situation is likely to work out and your husband is the reason why. He is not really married to you, is he? He is married to his mother, to his mother’s mother, to his friends and to his motherland. And if you will accept all this, then fine. He’ll be married to you too and if not? Well then apparently you can kiss his ass.
Now to his credit (and yours for being honest about this), it does not seem he misrepresented himself. So what you got here is exactly what you bargained for, which was a really crappy bargain.
Because it sounds like you do everything. Except maybe plow the back forty and rub down the cows and as you can see… none of this matters. You are not only not appreciated, you are completely discardable to these people – and preferably as soon as possible.
So you see the situation here. I believe you’ve made a mistake. And I agree with the grandma, you should get out before you have a child – but not for his sake, for yours!!
Because it’s obvious you are not cut out to live in a family compound and believe me, these pricks are going to keep up the pressure until they win and they will win. Why? Because you are one. And they are many, and they are mean.
I say, run! Run for your life. This is not a family you want to be part of. As if they’d let you.
And if you leave, brace yourself. Because this family is going to blame you for everything while they coddle him. So you get the picture. Stay or go, you aren’t going to win.
Have a question? Need advice? Ask here!
I feel like I’m in the midst of yet another transition or maybe still transitioning, having not yet found my place in the world, not yet found my love/life partner in this world, not yet found my livelihood in this world and desperate for all (and secretly wishing they are all intertwined with each other). It’s not for lack of opportunity or interested companions -I’ve had & have numerous wonderful men profess their love & desire to be married or build a life together. Ok, so maybe I’m a commitment-phobe aka having to have everything right & perfect before I can completely trust and commit.
Where is this ridiculous fear coming from? I know… it’s coming from me. I suppose the real question is, how do I bust it?…will I bust it?…so I might fully engage in life like I know is possible!!
Many thanks Elsa for your insight!!
Looking For My Captain’s Hat
I have no idea what your signature means but I left it intact for others to puzzle over while I try to crack your problem, which I feel is far more common than the people care to admit. The cause, and the specifics from person to person are endlessly varied but what you have in common is this: You have cracked 40 years old and you are alone. I’ll tell you exactly why I think this is.

“…You don’t want anyone stupid – you’re a Virgo! But to find the right partner, you will have to let go the “little maiden” thing because you are far more complicated. Part of you is voraciously demanding for example, though this is not something you would put in your press kit, lol!
My point here is that by accessing your own intensity, you will increase your ability to attract someone who has what you need where denying same will leave you standing around looking confused…”
There is no debate that Virgo is a critical sign. Whether this is a boon or a bust for people who interact with them depends on the Virgo. For example, I work with Virgos (The Mechanic and HQ). They are both critical thinkers with keen minds and I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to run my ideas through their filter.
Virgos are efficient and can save you a lot of time and pain. The have the ability to catch your errors on all levels and provided you can bear this, you’ll be helped and often tremendously. I realize there are people who want to make their own mistakes but there are circumstances where mistakes are costly. For example you don’t want to print a million copies of something that contains a typo so in a case like that, it’s foolish not to run your copy by a Virgo.
On the other hand, I have definitely met Virgos who are absolutely insufferable. They can’t go three feet without criticizing you (or themselves) and they feel all pristine about it too.
What are your experiences with Virgos and criticism?
Notes from the Psychoscape
Went out for a bite to eat after class the other night with my yoga teacher and the Scorpio guy. The topic of conversation: Scorpio guy’s new girlfriend. Clarification: Scorpio guy’s new much younger girlfriend.
Apparently he is setting a date by which she needs to “get it together” or he’s walking.
“What does that mean, get it together?”
“Simple things. Laundry.”
“You want her to do your laundry?”
“No, I want her to do her own laundry.”
“So, you’re doing her laundry?”
“I have done her laundry a few times as a favor, but not regularly.”
“So… YOU… just want HER… to DO… her own laundry?”
