    GIRLS JUST WANNA HAVE SUN

    Happy Monday! We hope you've had a lovely weekend. We've spent ours thinking about what we'd like to do this summer when we will hopefully be able to travel.

    Speaking of summer, the summer solstice is just around the corner. The longest day of the year has traditionally marked the beginning of a season that is filled with beauty and abundance.

    Well, it sounds good so far and the fact that this year's solstice heralds the sun in Cancer and Jupiter in Pisces, means we should have a feeling that anything is possible.

    To find about what all this means for your sign, check this out.

    WHAT IS A VENUS SIGN?

    Basically, the function of Venus astrologically is to tell us how we gel with people and give and receive love.

    The planet of beauty, love and extreme pleasure tells us a heap of things about the kind of person we are, who we are attracted to and what turns us on.

    It tells us what type of relationship we really need and all the things that give us butterflies.

    CAN YOU REALLY HAVE TWO SUN SIGNS?

    According to the AstroTwins, there is actually no such thing as cusp signs.

    They believe that due to the way the sun moves into each sign, there is no way you can be born under two at the same time.

    A Pisces – Aries cusp for example, might display all the common characteristics of a Pisces, but maybe their Lilith is in Scorpio.

    THE BLACK MOON CAN BOOST YOUR SEX LIFE

    Black Moon Lilith is the point in the sky that marks the furthest point of the moon’s orbit around the earth.

    Astrologers call Lilith the “dark moon.” Think unresting bitch face— the part of you that flips your lid when your chip your fresh manicure.

    Knowing your Lilith’s zodiac sign can reveal the darker side of your sexuality and where you might start crushing just a little too hard on someone.

    In an astrology chart, Lilith, also referred to as the Black Moon, represents a person’s primitive reactions and attitude – warts and all.

    THE STAR SIGNS DESTINED FOR FORTUNE

    Think your star sign doesn’t affect how wealthy you are?  It turns out you may be wrong. Although there are billionaires all over the zodiac, nearly one in FIVE are Libras.

    The second most prosperous sign is Aries, which has nine per cent of people in the top 100, such as internet leader Larry Page. 

    The next best signs are Gemini, Cancer and Capricorn, who are all tied on eight per cent of the top 100. 

    But it's bad news for entrepreneurial Sagittariuses, as only one person in the top 100 has this sign – Chinese businessman Lei Jun.

    See how your sign compares in the graphic below:

    WHICH CELEBS HAVE STAR SIGN TATTOOS?

    Zodiac sign tattoos are one of the most popular ink choices especially among celebs.

    Pop diva Rihanna adores the astrological art getting a glyph of her star sign Pisces tattooed behind her right ear in one of her first ink sessions.

    Eco-superstar Jessica Alba also paid close attention to the tattoo trend using her children’s zodiac signs as inspiration to add to her collection of ink.

    Free-spirited Sagittarius Miley Cyrus meanwhile opted to put her gorgeous glyph on the inside of her arm. Hopefully it protected her from all those wrecking balls!

    WHAT ARE THE SYMBOLS FOR EACH STAR SIGN?

    The bizarre little symbols we see next to our horoscopes known as glyphs, represent each zodiac sign.

    While they may not immediately resemble virgins and crabs, each sign depicts the zodiac symbol it’s related to.

    Some of the more obscure symbols include Virgo’s star sign associated with a maiden, represented by an ‘M’ shape.

    The two lines in Aquarius’s glyph are thought to represent water while lovers of balance, Libra are represented by a sunrise or a set of scales.

    ARE ‘ANGEL NUMBERS’ MORE THAN JUST A COINCIDENCE?

    Some writers say that 11.11 indicates the presence of the spirit. For some, seeing 11:11 is an auspicious sign and the numbers have magical powers themselves.

    Likewise, the number 333 has some different interpretations but it is also broadly thought to be a message from a guardian angel to tell you to keep going down the path you are.

    It is thought to offer comfort, inner-strength and encouragement.

    THE STAR SIGN MOST LIKELY TO GET MATCHES ON DATING APPS

    According to Tinder, 18-25 year olds are 29% more likely to match with someone based on a star sign than members over 25.

    What's more, those who straight up identify their sign in their bio consistently rank as a top profile feature.

    Leos may be vain, as demonstrated by the camera emoji often included in their bios, but when it comes to Tinder, they’re definitely at the top of the dating game. 

    They are the only sign to list CEO as their top job – and they’re also most likely to "Flex" in their bios. 

    They get the most "likes" and are the most likely to name their star sign in their bio. So it's safe to say they're killing it at this online dating thing.

    On the flip side, Capricorns are the least likely to include their sign in their bio.

    They’re ambitious, frequently touting their determined nature in their bios, with the inclusion of the "working out" emoji in their bios, which doesn’t leave them with much time for swiping. 

    They have the fewest swipes (right or left) of any sign.

    THE STAR SIGNS MOST LIKELY TO CHEAT

    Kerry King has revealed the star signs who are most likely to cheat, so is your partner on the list?

    According to the expert, Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, Cancer, Gemini and Libra all fall on the ‘just can’t help it’ side of straying from relationships.

    She says: “Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are all Fire signs, which means they are ruled, first and foremost, by their passions. They are lusty, spontaneous, dramatic, flirtatious, and attractive.

    “Their sexual energy puts them in the danger zone for affairs, and their leaning towards living in the moment and following their heart (or other bits of their anatomy) makes them vulnerable to making bad choices. 

    “Cancer is a sucker for love, and needs huge amounts of loyalty and affection in relationships. If it’s not forthcoming at home, but is being served up elsewhere, then they are 100% tempted to head where their needs are being better met. They just need love. They are also SUPER-secretive. 

    “Gemini is an out-and-out rascal. Geminis love shiny new things, and hate to be tied down to any kind of routine or humdrum-ness, and that includes relationships. Geminis do it because they can, and because they believe if they can get away with it, then they should. YOLO. 

    “Libra is ruled by Venus, the goddess of love, and is the zodiac’s ~people pleaser~, AKA the f***boy of the cosmos.

    “Librans love to be in love, are experts at flirting, enjoy all manner of sexual foreplay, and are programmed to focus on the thrill of the chase, more than the long-term commitment part. A classic heartbreaker.”

    WHAT IS NUMEROLOGY?

    Similar to astrology, numerology is the belief that the day you were born contributes to your personality.

    The concept gives everyone a “life-path” number that helps to tell you the truth about your personality, your outlook on life and any obstacles you’ll be forced to face.

    Different numbers are associated with different things, with the most powerful numbers believed to be numbers that are paired with the same number.

    For example 11, 22, and 33 are considered “master numbers: and have the “highest potential for success”.

    The number 9, meanwhile, is believed to be the strongest number and its traits include wisdom and enlightenment.

    HOW DOES ASTROLOGY WORK?

    Astrology is the belief that the alignment of stars and planets affects every individual’s life depending on when they were born – from their mood to their personality to what happens in the future.

    It can be pretty complex stuff for the average person and is often referred to as “the language of the sky” – a language only astrologers understand.

    People have been studying astrology for thousands of years, and to become a horoscope reader, you need to get to grips with the basics, by reading books, reading horoscope charts and practising interpretations.

    The horoscopes is an astronomical map that shows the placement of the sun, the moon, and the planets within 12 sections of the sky—the signs of the zodiac.

      WHEN IS MERCURY IN RETROGRADE IN 2021?

      IF you've ever heard someone say "I blame Mercury retrograde" we know exactly what they mean. When the planet of communication, travel and technology goes backwards we can expect all sorts of delays, glitches and horror of all horrors, texts sent to the wrong person.

      Mercury completes its orbit around the Sun in about 88 days, while the Earth takes 365 days. Since Mercury moves faster, it whizzes past the Earth 3-4 times each year.

      As the planet nears us, it appears to slow down, stop, move backward, stop again, then move forward.

      We're exhausted just reading this, but this is why the cycle is known as retrograde from the Latin word "retrogradus" meaning "backward step."

      In 2021, the planet will be in complete retrograde movements during the following dates:

      • January 30 to February 21
      • May 29 to June 22
      • September 27 to October 23

      WANT TO FIND YOUR MOON SIGN?

      While your sun sign is easy to determine – based on the date you were born – it’s a little more complicated to work out your moon sign.

      Your moon sign is determined by calculating your full date, place and time of birth and finding your position around the moon.

      It moves quickly around the zodiac, visiting each sign for around two to two and a half days.

      Your moon sign is likely to be different from your sun sign – i.e. you might be a Taurus, but your lunar sign might be in Sagittarius.

      Luckily, there are Moon Sign Calculators available online, such as this one from Lunarium, which can help you work out your sign.

      THE BEST DIET BASED ON YOUR STAR SIGN

      According to our resident Tarotscope reader Kerry King what you should be eating could be written in the stars.

      She says: “There aren’t many of us who naturally enjoy and relish the idea of dieting, it’s hard to stick to something based on denial.

      “However, you can give yourself a better chance of success if you can align your dieting technique to your star sign.

      “The personality traits and strengths associated with each sign can lead to a great match with a particular diet that won’t turn you ALL the way off. No pain, no gain… but let’s ease the pain.

      HOW TO DRESS ACCORDING TO YOUR STAR SIGN

      From floaty and floral to sexy glam, tarot card reader Kerry King reveals the ultimate outfit guide according to your star sign.

      Aries – According to Kerry, you, Aries, have swagger, so think fashion choices which draw attention – athleisurewear works for you.

      Aquarius – Anything is possible for you in your eccentric, bombastic and crazy world of Aquarius fashion. Think astronaut suits, vintage wedding gowns, see-through vests, cat-ear hats, you wear whatever you discover in the closet.

      Scorpio – Being rich, powerful, and in control is in your nature but these traits are reflected in you wardrobe too. Think couture, designer labels and blingy statement-jewellery – you love to “power dress”.

      WHERE DOES THE ZODIAC COME FROM?

      The Zodiac is the term used to describe the circle of 12 divisions of celestial longitude that are centred upon the path of the sun.

      The 12 divisions share the names we know as our star signs.

      The term zodiac derives from Latin zōdiacus – meaning “circle of animals”.

      Throughout history, the zodiac has been used to predict or echo characteristics of personality.

      WANT TO BECOME A HOROSCOPE READER?

      Firstly, you need to get to grips with the basics, by reading books, reading horoscope charts and practising interpretations.

      The best next step is to get certified from a reputable school that teaches astrology.

      Then, you should determine where you’d like your career to go, be it doing individual horoscope readings, for corporate events, online or for magazines or newspapers – to name a few.

      It could be a good idea when you start out to intern or get an apprenticeship with a professional astrologer, who will be able to give you valuable guidance. 

      Once you have a solid foundation to your knowledge, you can start forging a business out of astrology, should you wish.

        Kate (Capricorn) and William (Cancer) are a perfect astrological match as they are opposite signs.

        According to tarot queen Kerry King this dynamic mix helps the pair fit together perfectly. It’s written in the stars!

        “Cancer and Capricorn ignite powerful, opposites attract chemistry, which has both drawn them together and kept things alive and interesting for all these years,” says Kerry.

        WHY MORE MILLENIALS ARE RELYING ON HOROSCOPES

        Astrology has been around in various forms for thousands of years, but now horoscope meme machines are amassing more interest than ever.

        Tarot queen Kerry King tells us: “For some years now, astrology has played the role of therapist, counsellor and decision making aide for millennials.

        “Every generation tends to discover the stars at some point, but, for this generation, it is more than curiosity.

        “Birth charts are analysed, events like Mercury Retrograde are planned around, dating apps using astrological matching are sought.

        “In what is a very uncertain and volatile world, astrology offers structure and sense.”

        Astrologers around the world celebrate their love of the stars on March 20 which is considered the start of the astrological year.
