Star Signs (042709)

 

Pisces (Feb 19 - Mar 20)


The Bottom Line

People will have great curiosity for you today, and are likely to keep you talking!

 

In Detail

People will have a great curiosity for you today, and are likely to keep you talking with their nonstop questions. They want to know what you're doing now, what you're doing next and what you think about what they're doing -- it could be exhausting. You don't have to be too specific about what you are doing in your life right now -- especially if you feel it will be an invasion of your privacy. Besides, the details are a bit tedious. You could bore someone.

 

✬✬✬

 

Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21)

 

The Bottom Line

It'll only take one minor detail to derail your plans today, so be on the lookout.

 

In Detail

Just like it only takes a minor snag in the carpet to trip you up, it will only take one minor detail to derail your plans today. But instead of turning a paranoid eye on everything you see, just be aware that little slip ups have a chance of occurring today, and try to carry on as normal. You can't make every little thing perfect, so don't waste your time trying. Just stay limber and be ready with a backup plan, should your plan A go awry. You are spry and smart enough to bob and weave.

Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20)

 

The Bottom Line

There is a lot of indecisive energy around you, which could cause scheduling delays.

 

In Detail

There is a lot of indecisive energy around you, and it could cause some scheduling delays. The good news is that whatever delays happen are for the best! So if you can be flexible and just go with the flow right now, you will open your life up to more spontaneity and excitement. Let things be messy and imperfect, and you'll enjoy them more. Who cares if you don't have the perfect outfit, or you're five minutes late for the movie? Trying to make things perfect is not worth the trouble.

Gemini (May 21 - Jun 21)

 

The Bottom Line

Someone is playing a very flirtatious game with you, but it's about to get serious.

 

In Detail

Someone has been playing a totally flirtatious game with you for a while now, but don't worry if it feels like it comes to a stop today. This is not the end! They are simply reorganizing their ideas and revising their approach. They have a big surprise in store for you, so stay tuned. The tables are about to be turned and you're going to find yourself in a situation you've never been in before. It may be uncomfortable at first, but just give it time -- this is going to be an exciting experience.

A part of me can't believe that this is the first time in April that I've posted Star Signs.  Then again, asides from checking my Facebook account, I hardly do anything in the net anymore.  I guess I've been busy with other things - the training team, volleyball practice, 24... hehehehe... Speaking of which, I've been planning to write something about that.  It might not be what most people would expect a review to be, but then again, when have I ever colored within the lines?  *wink wink*

Wiccan Wishes

Goddess...

 

Grant me enough humility to admit when I have committed fault...

Enough self-respect to realize my worth...

And enough insight to forgive myself for every single moment when I feel I am not enough.

 

Help me, Goddess...

 

Save me from being without faith.

One Day (Anything but Numb)

Oh, Johnny wishes he was famous

Spends his time alone in the basement

With Lennon and Cobain

And a guitar and a stereo

 

And while he wishes he could escape this

But it all seems so contagious

Not to be yourself and faceless

In a song that has no soul

 

I remember feeling low

And I remembering losing hope

And I remember all the feelings

And the day they stopped

 

We are, we are all innocent

We are all innocent, we are, we are

We are, we are all innocent

We are all innocent, we are, we are

 

Oh, and Gina's losing faith in what she knows

Hates her music, hates all of her clothes

Things of surgery and new nose

Every calorie's a war

 

And while she wishes she was a dancer

And that she never heard of cancer

She wishes God would give her some answers

And make her feel beautiful

 

I remember feeling low

And I remember losing hope

And I remember all the feelings

And the day they stopped

 

We are, we are all innocent

We are all innocent, we are, we are

We are, we are all innocent

We are all innocent, we are, we are

 

One day you'll have to let it go

You'll have to let it go, no

One day you'll stand up on your own

You'll stand up on your own, yeah

 

Remember losing hope

Remember feeling low

Remember all the feelings

And the day they stopped

 

We are, we are all innocent

We are all innocent, we are, we are

We are, we all innocent

We are all innocent, we are, we are

 

One day 

(We are, we are all innocent)

You'll have to let it go

(We are all innocent)

You'll have to let it go, no

(We are, we are)

 

One day

(We are, we are all innocent)

You'll stand up on your own

(We are all innocent)

You'll stand up on your own, yeah

(We are, we are)

We are, we are all innocent

- Innocent

Daily Discoveries (IX)

So for some strange reason, I went to Instyle.com today and started looking through their posts (this is a mag site and it's the first time that I've ever tried going to one of these).  Personally, I blame Boyfriend.  I've turned into suck a kikay freak ever since we got together... but I have to admit, being a Kikay Freak is uber fun!!!

 

Anyway, I found a relatively interesting article about how to have great-looking hair.  The stuff they wrote actually made sense and it doesn't really require humungous amounts of money or energy, so I've decided to share it with you :) (this is me, being nice)

 

10 Ways to Sexy Hair

 

Number 1: Lots of Layers

There's a reason wind machines are a photoshoot staple: Hair that's tousled is more provocative than stiff, straight planks.  So fake the breezy effects of a blower with swinging layers.  If you have medium to thick hair, ask your stylist for choppy layers all the way around your lead (like Jennifer Aniston's).  If you have fine strands, all it takes is a few chin-grazing pieces in front.

 

Number 2: Condition First

For silky strands, apply a treatment mask to dry hair for 10 minutes before you shampoo.  This allows natural oils to penetrate the cuticle and soften it from within.  After rinsing, lather your scalp with a gentle shampoo to remove dirt and residue.

 

* Recommended Buy:  Neutrogena Triple Moisture Deep Recovery hair mask.

 

Number 3:  Knotty is Nice

The most appealing looks aren't perfect.  Giselle Bundchen's mane an Harry Josh tells us how to re-create her signature rumpled style: "Flip your hair upside down and give it a good shake.  Then flip it back over, scrunch the crown, and finger-comb the ends."

 

Number 4:  Veer Off Center

"A low side part works on every face shape," says Josh.  Use the end of a rattail comb to draw a line from the hairline at the outer corner of one eyebrow diagonally back to the center of the crown.  It creates a sultry swoop in front while maintaining balance of both sides.

 

* Recommended Buy:  Speert comb

 

Number 5: Be a Brunette Bombshell

A rich cocoa hue "has a dramatic quality that you just don't get from lighter shades," says N.Y.C. colorist Jason Backe, who likes Clairol Perfect 10 at-home color kit in Medium Auburn (* recommended buy).  For Beyonce's golder brown, try L'Oreal Paris Feria in Sparkling Amber (* recommended buy).

 

Number 6:  Ulterior Movements

According to body language expert, Patti Wood, tossing hair back while showing the palm of your hand "is mysterious and sexy."  But avoid twirling hair - it signals insecurity.

 

Number 7: Indulge Fantasies

No, we're not pushing Princess Leia's braids and bikini!  But next time you reach for a ponytail holder, think sexy secretary.  Twist hair into a low chignon, then secure it with a pencil, chopstick or, our fave multitasker, Clarins's smoldering black liner pencil with a tapered, tuckable end (* recommended buy).

 

Number 8: Spice Things Up

Our pick: Armani's new frangipani, licorice and patchouli blend.  It's a sexy floral oriental fragrance.  Spritz the nape of your neck, and with every flirty toss of your hair will release the come-hither scent.

 

* Recommended Buy:  Giorgio Armani Onde Vertige

 

Number 9:  Dare to Gleam

There's a fine line between glossy and greasy, but new featherweight silicone sprays make it an easy one to navigate.  For touchable shine,, mist spray on palms and run them over the hair.

 

* Recommended Buy:  Sebastian Professional Trilliant shine spray

 

Number 10:  Go Untucked

Experts agree that the surest way to fizzle your sizzle is by pushing hair behind your ears.  "It's juvenile and generally not flattering on anyone," says N.Y.C. hair pro Garren.  "Pull your hair back if you're at work, but on dates you can let it fall in your face in that flirty, Kate Moss kind of way," says Harry Josh.

 

*Enjoy*

Ungrateful

Today...

... I just want to be selfish.  I don't want to worry about things I feel I shouldn't be worrying about.

... I want to be resentful.  I do not want to apologize for not wanting to be in the position I am now.  I do not want to be sorry for feeling a little bitter about life.

... I want to be able to breathe.  I do not want to keep feeling that slight pain in my chest every time I take a breath.

... I want to be angry.  I do not want to be appreciative all the time.  I do not want to feel that I owe something to every single person who has been kind to me.  I want to be free to feel what I feel without being sorry.

... I do not want to be sorry.  Mainly because I'm not.

 

***


In light of being selfish, I'm only posting my horoscope today.
 

 

Pisces (Feb 19 - Mar 20)

The Bottom Line

Someone's been sitting on the fence too long for your taste. Tell them so today.

 

In Detail

Someone's cliche commentary will start to get on your nerves today -- you're sick and tired of them beating around the bush, trying not to offend anyone. You want them to choose a side, say their true feelings, and face up to the consequences! You can't control another person's behavior, but you can show them how you want them to behave. Encourage the type of direct communication you crave. They might be surprised by your boldness at first, but they will get the message.

 

***

 

.. And the result of a quiz that I took...

 

"My Hidden Talent"

The Artist

You love freedom and want to follow your heart's desires. You might not be at your best when dealing with other people. Once you are given the opportunity to work your chosen way, your gift will shine. A tip for you is not to concentrate too much on your own work, but widen your focus and consider the opinions of other people.

Daily Discoveries (VIII)

We bought a couple of installers for my Mac and I was able to find a copy of COREL.  Before going into the call center industry, I was seriously thinking of pursuing a career in graphic design (which would explain why my interviewers initially thought of putting me in Adobe).  Anyway, I haven't done any work in COREL for the past 4 or 5 years and the last program that I used was several versions older than the one I have now... not to mention that I used to work with a Windows-based computer.

 

Moving on... I've been spending some time playing around with COREL (trying to figure out the ins and outs) and came up with this...

 

 

Needless to say, I'm very, Very, VERY happy.

Star Signs (032509)

 Pisces (Feb 19 - Mar 20)

* for me *

The Bottom Line

If you don't treat yourself well today, then how will other people know to do it?

 

In Detail

If you don't treat yourself well, then how will other people know to do it? Today you need to set an example for your friends and family to follow. Treat yourself to an indulgence you've long restricted yourself from enjoying. Maybe it's a splurge at a jewelry store, that new gadget you've had your eye on, a day at the spa, or a meal at a four star restaurant. Remind yourself that you are in charge of your own life by getting yourself something you really, really want.


✰✰✰

 

Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20)

* for Jutes *

The Bottom Line

You have logic on your side, and can get your people focused on working together.

 

In Detail

If your group of friends or coworkers just isn't making any progress right now, then it's a good time for you to step in. Throw your weight around! You have facts and logic on your side, and you will be able to get your friends focused on working together instead of trying to outdo each other. You can turn things around and get great results because you know that if you appeal to the best in people, they will show you the best that they have to offer.


✰✰✰

 

Gemini (May 21 - Jun 21)

* For Ate V *

The Bottom Line

To protect your reputation, you've got to make a tough call all on your own today.

 

In Detail

The position you're put in today will require you to make a tough decision -- do you opt for the choice that will be best for you, or best for someone else? Avoid the urge to consult other people about what you should do. While getting input is a fine idea, it could end up confusing you in the end if you talk to too many people. Plus, you might come off as someone who doesn't really know what they are doing. To protect your reputation, you've got to make this call on your own.


✰✰✰

 

Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21)

* for Mario *

The Bottom Line

Your aesthetic senses are heightened now, and you can beautify just about anything.

 

In Detail

Your aesthetic senses are heightened right now, and all day long you will see ways to improve the space around you. Every drab room you see will spark your creativity and get your imagination working -- there should be some redecoration projects in your future. Take another look at your bathroom, bedroom, or kitchen and make some plans. Start sketching out your ideas. Pick up a few magazines for additional inspiration. Beautiful changes are coming.

Star Signs (032309)

Pisces (Feb 19 - Mar 20)

* for me *

The Bottom Line

No matter how strong your opinions are, you need to be open to change right now.

 

In Detail

No matter how strong your opinions are, you need to be open to change right now. Someone will come onto the scene who has a very different style of thinking, acting, and dressing today. The temptation, for you, will be to not take them seriously. But they are a force to be reckoned with. Listen to what they have to say and observe how they capture people's attention. You could learn a lot from a person who sees the world so differently from you.

 

Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20)

* for Jutes *

The Bottom Line

When someone does something outrageous today, give them the benefit of the doubt.

 

In Detail

Before you say what's on your mind when someone does something outrageous today, stop for a moment. Review the situation. Put yourself in their place and their behavior might make a lot more sense. Things that affect you might not be meant to affect you, so don't jump to any conclusions or take this person's actions personally. Be objective, analytical and cautions -- listen to your conservative side today and give people the benefit of any doubt. They'll do the same for you.

 

Gemini (May 21 - Jun 21)

* for Ate V *

The Bottom Line

All the facts you need are right in front of you and only you. You have the power.

 

In Detail

All the facts you need are right in front of you (and only you) today, which means you are in a particularly exciting and powerful position. While everyone else is struggling to figure out what the heck is going on, you will be able to see right through all of the chaos and misunderstandings. Your ability to sort through all the data to find the information that really matters will help you save time, money, and your sanity. You will be the big hero.

 

Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21)

* for M *

The Bottom Line

No matter what your philosophy of life, you will need to be open to new ideas.

 

In Detail

No matter what your philosophy of life is, you will need to be open to new ideas and different types of thinking today. Someone very influential in your work or school could help you move farther along on your path, but they don't feel the same way as you do about a lot of important topics. You need to accept this -- you can't change people's minds about things that are important to them, so don't even try. But don't just agree with them in order to earn their favor, either.
