Sex and Astrology – Earth Signs.

So we’ve just discovered those hotly passionate signs of fire. Now let’s take a good look at the most lusty sensuous signs out there. Earth signs are very ‘feet on the ground’ types. Now this doesn’t mean there isn’t some simmering passion lurking here. There’s a sort of slower pace with these signs that seems to appeal to so many romantics. Earth signs are Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn.

TAURUS: Sensual, lusty and pretty simple. It’s going to be rather standard sex until the Bull is able to trust and open up. Challenge is written all over trying to get Taurus to do anything they don’t want to do. They tend to take their own sweet time about everything. Trust with them is something you prove over time based on your actions. There’s a real connection to the senses of touch and smell with this sign so don’t be stingy about where they can put their hands on you or be surprised when they try to catch your sent in the air.

Women: A classy lady who’s stubborn. They need a partner who is capable of keeping their interests as well as having both feet on the ground. She’s a bit set in her ways but appealing to her sense might be something to look forward to. Touch is magic to them, sensual kissing anything to be romantic is an absolute must.

Men: The manly man who’s mostly calm and in control. There is no mushy emotional side to this man. He is the ultimate rock who only expects the 4 things in life that keep him happy. Sex, food, money and security – fulfill these basic needs and he’ll stick around and show you how happy you’ve made him feel.

Lover’s bonus: The neck is a very sensitive place for Taurus so kissing, licking, and tenderly clutching the neck as you kiss is a major plus. Solid actions are huge here since Taurus aren’t one to directly say something if they’ve shown you the answers. Ex: if you ask ‘do you love me?’ a typical Taurus answer would be ‘I’m here, aren’t I?’. Try a little bit of light bondage toys like handcuffs. Think ‘ownership’ the thought and proof turns them on. Have foods like fruit, nuts, m&m’s, and granola available just in case your Bull gets hungry after they’ve fulfilled your pleasures.

VIRGO: Not one of the more sexed signs of the zodiac but there’s a deep intellect here. They have no issues talking about sex unlike the other earth signs mentioned. There’s need for a plan with this sign, mostly because they are aware of everything going on around them. There’s rules to follow here and regulations with how the mechanics of this works. This doesn’t mean there will be no period of sowing your wild oats but at the end of the day you’ll go back to order. As the symbol of the Virgin everyone assumes you keep yourself aloof to sexual matters. In fact it’s quite the opposite because you want a perfect type of union and as a Virgo there’s an appeal in the pursuit in finding that perfection. It’s a slow and sensual sex style once properly lit.

Women: She’s the prized woman who knows where everything is at home. There’s a love of the idea of seduction and once she’s ready to go be prepared for the lacy practical garments she’ll seduce you with once you’ve convinced her you are trustworthy.

Men: The perfectionist who doesn’t like crumbs in the bed. This lover will have everything planned out perfectly. He’s not one to initiate wild and crazy things into the bedroom but if it’s something you’ll enjoy he’ll be happy to oblige… as long as it’s not too messy.

Lover’s Bonus: You’ll need to be well groomed and avid about details in your surroundings. There’s a sense of rich meaningful sex ahead but you’ve got to prove you’re trustworthy to keep it. Try a lovely dinner with good food followed by a sensual massage. Natural scents or herbal aromas like sage, lemon, or the scent of clean linens would be good aroma to set the mood. Foreplay is a must with this sign so try to set off the imagination. Don’t be critical it’s a major turn off to them when you are.

CAPRICORN: There’s a deep sense of security with this sign. And let’s admit it, sometimes security is very appealing. They are a lusty sign but they have the self discipline to appear cool and collective on the outside. Break that exterior and watch the flood gates open. A word of warning: once you’ve open the door it’s going to be hard to close it again. If Capricorn has a good idea of what ground they are standing on expect them to move forward. Their very loyal and will remain faithful once a commitment is made. Prove unfaithful to them and jealousy will come out in a ‘hell hath no fury’ kind of way.

Women: This might take a while because she needs wooing and does not care for someone who is too eager. It’s important to coax her and getting her ready might be something that could take a bit of time. There’s a love of textures so it’s a plus to have luxurious materials like fur, ivory satin or leather. She’ll look good in and on all of it.

Men: This man likes the classy women who follow the old saying ‘lady in the parlor vixen in the bedroom’. They won’t make the first move until they are almost 100 percent sure of the success. This is mostly due to the fact that in their opinion if you stir the pot something now has to happen.

Lover’s Bonus: They like to know what’s coming so any type of structured sex play is always a good option. Jokes and laughter before getting serious is another way to set the mood. They like the tension and release of sex so don’t be surprised if they just jump right into it. Incenses like sage, sandalwood or jasmine to help simulate the senses and to set a sexy mood. Once they’re ready to go and you’ve told them you were too be prepared for some sensual delights. A list of major turn off’s would include being indirect and irresponsible.

So as we all know there’s another installment to the saga of Twilight with Breaking Dawn out in theaters recently. And it’s been rumored quite a lot that Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson has been an item through out their time playing the immortal characters of Bella Swan and Edward Cullen.

So I’ve taken it upon myself to do a basic analysis of their relationship based on Astrology. Now this is a very lose interpretation as I was not able to complete their charts due to birth time information. Hopefully I’ve gotten close with the limited information I was able to pull. So what do the stars say about this sexy couple if they continue with this relationship they may or may not have?

The individuals:

Kristen Stewart (Bella Swan) is an Aries. She enjoys a good challenge and has a child like charm. She’s one to play fair and things like sneaky behavior, violence and rage are offensive to her. She wants to be considered accomplished and important while facing her harder obstacles. She’s conflicted a lot internally because she needs one thing but wants another.

She’s very diplomatic in the sense that she’s capable of viewing both sides of the coin in any given situation. Her moon sign is in Libra so she’s got a strong need for a partnership and she can feel that void when someone isn’t there to share her with. It’s not uncommon to see people with this placement involved in marriages or living situations early on in life.

With her Venus in Pisces, she comes off as a dreamer or someone who’s extremely soft-hearted. She’s got an air of romance and sensitivity so letting her know that the love she’ll get from her partner is unconditional has great importance. Her Mars is in Aquarius which makes Kristen a bit unique and original when it comes to her views of the world as well as her pride in her independence. Honestly there’s a method to her madness even if it’s hard to follow. In the end she’ll get what she wants.

Robert Pattinson (Edward Cullen) is a Taurus. He’s the solid type who’s always dependable. He’s sensual in all areas such as food, sex, and environment. When working this means he’ll be working hard with a steady effort that will pay off to his liking. Security is very important and it will most likely be a driving force behind this guy.

His moon sign is in cancer so he’s very capable of getting in touch with others feelings and moods. There is a tendency to cling to things like home, the people he cares for or the memories of the past. This is not good because some have said with moon in its native place on a persons chart is a usual sign Robert won’t forget anything.

This could mean he’ll try to ‘draw blood from a stone’ about issues from the past especially if it was an emotional event. There is a sense of humor that’s very attractive and charming. He’s caring, homey and likes the comforts of his little world. With his Mars in Capricorn there’s a subdued and controlled style to life. He’ll like to stay on top of things and generally he’ll display a goal oriented personality. This means he’s on the low key but his determination will get him through to places he wants to go.

As a Couple:
There’s a chance that this couple will have frequent disputes with the tendency of placing them on the back burner because they want to keep the peace. This really isn’t a good thing for the long run. They’ll get along well enough and they do seem to truly enjoy each others interests and tastes.

There’s a passionate type of love here with a great deal of affection between the two. They can create a stable environment which could lead to a quite life together. Since Robert’s sun trines Kristen’s Saturn this means she could press some dominance which could make it difficult on him to accept. But Kristen’s Saturn will bring security which will make Robert feel much better about this dominance.

There is a chance that Robert will resist Kristen on things like marriage on a formal level because of his need for freedom. No worries, there’s a level of respect between the two because they appreciate what the other can bring to the table. There’s a feeling from both Robert and Kristen that makes them feel that this relationship has forced them to grow which is a very good sign of endurance.

The only cautions I would advise is that these two need to be completely honest with one another because deceptions have a way of coming out so both need to be wary of living in fantasy land instead of reality. The reality check will be one that will bring great disappointment if honesty isn’t involved.

Sex and Astrology – Fire signs.

November 20, 2011, 10:38 AM

By: Lulu Gleason

I’ve done a lot of research involving love and the signs, but lets face it most of us want to know about how the signs are connecting in intimate ways. Most astrologers tell you that in order to see if someone connects on a sexual level that it involves where Venus and Mars are located in both charts etc. It seemed a bit complicated to me so I’ve devised a list of general basics for each sign. This is the beginning of a 4 part blog where we’ll look at each different sign and how sexy they can really be. For this first part let’s start off with the warmest signs out there now that winter is around the corner. Fire signs consist of Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius.

ARIES: Passionate, hot, and exploding with sexual attraction is Aries. Though it should be said that sometimes there seems to be something missing on an intimate level, but that’s because Aries are not known for the emotional approach to getting dirty in between the sheets. Ruled by Mars Aries partners are straightforward when pursuing their partner. They love the thrill of the chase and if danger is involved it becomes an exciting adventure. The downside to all this would be if Aries feels boredom. The ram needs to have its ego fed and sometimes this is why they seem to have that ‘grass is greener on the other side of the fence’ mentality. They love a good challenge so incorporate it in imaginative ways they’ll be sure to appreciate it.

Women: Highly independent, you won’t see this woman boosting anyone’s ego. They will be direct with how they feel about their lovers. You’ll need to be a strong secure man to handle this fire cracker.

Men: The zodiac ‘tough guy’ who underneath that is a great guy. They LOVE the thrills in pursuit of their partner. Bold, direct with a touch of charm this potential lover is ready for just about anything.

Lovers Bonus: Don’t be ‘easy’ or play games. Be independent and make sure you let them know they are the best you’ve ever had. Tell them something about them that drive’s you crazy. Run your fingers over their face and then passionately grab it and look them directly into the eyes. Remember sometimes Aries can be a bit insensitive in the approach of love or sex but you can always let them know it’s a lot of fun to discover new heights together in the bedroom… if you dare.

LEO: This sign is the center of attention but how can you resist when they are so attractive? Leo’s are a very strong loyal lover and they will do just about anything they can for the people they consider special to them. Leo’s have dignity though so always be aware if they perceive something beneath them they will walk away. Not overly imaginative in the bed with a partner but once you’ve awoken the beast be sure to compliment the ego… a lot. There’s a sense of pride when it comes to the performance and if a partner let’s their sexy Leo know then even more pleasure can ensue.

Women: The prima donna of the zodiac, this sexy girl is seductive and pretty choosy about the lovers she takes on. This sexy kitten wants a macho man who can handle her wildcat side. She’s not overly experimental but she makes up for that in the quality she provides.

Men: Good looking and let’s face it down right sexy. He likes to play and wants someone who’s willing to do that. Well groomed ladies seem to turn this sign on so make sure you look extra good. Compliment and stroke his ego and you’ll never regret it!

Lovers Bonus: Give a lot of attention, undivided, direct and unwavering attention. Keep any types of distractions out of the bedroom because you’re dealing with an uncontrollable, passionate and unexpected time of your life. Light some candles, stroke your lion’s mane, and remember: Men like to dominate and the ladies expect you to make the first move.

SAGITTARIUS: A most good-natured sign with the fiery disposition and a lively appetite for some adventure. They are usually ready to go and are one’s to be impressed by impulsiveness. Being upfront and honest about things is what seems to be extremely important to this sign so laying out the cards might be a good way to start things off. There is a tendency of putting there foot in there mouth because they are so honest about opinions and terrible with secrets.
Women: They can attract men easily and if they are inclined to keep you they’ll make sure to do just that. She’ll be helpful in anything you need assistance in but she’ll do so in an honest way, sometimes it hurts.

Men: Happy to initiate and or try out some new technique you’ve heard, but not so happy about the foreplay to get you into the mood he’s in. There is no plan in his chaos of passion because he feels that his instincts are there to make things happen.

Lover’s Bonus: They might be clumsy about getting you into the bed but those are just small details they make up for it once they’ve gotten to the delights of exploring. Find one of those round beds in a spacious room, light some candles and you’re on your way. Nothing will stop Sagittarius once it’s going if there are any distractions they’ll just get it out of the way and keep doing what they do best. I should warn potential lovers that if there’s a small hint of manipulation or if you’re artificial they’ll call it quits. There’s nothing wrong with compliments but stroking their ego to get them in bed will only fail.

Join me next time with Earth signs.

Holiday Planning.

November 13, 2011, 5:57 AM

By: ARA

Aunt Edna is upset because Cousin Billy is bringing his new girlfriend, and she doesn’t think she should have to buy her a gift. Sue and Harry’s family can only come on the Saturday before the holiday, and Aunt Judy insists that everything be home cooked. Considering the obstacles and opinions, why will Americans mob the airports and highways this holiday season, as they do every year, to attend gatherings with their extended families?

“People need to feel that connectedness,” surmises Charlotte Shoup Olsen, an associate professor of family studies and extension specialist at Kansas State University in Manhattan, Kan. “When everyone is together you get that sense of being part of a bigger community — not in the sense that you live close by, but just in a sense of belonging. Holidays, especially, offer a good opportunity to build that family history together.”

According to a recent poll conducted by Harris Interactive and sponsored by Modern Woodmen of America, Rock Island, Ill., 90 percent of Americans attend a holiday event such as Thanksgiving or Christmas with extended family.

“Nearly all Americans in our survey (99 percent) feel it’s good for children to know their relatives and family history,” comments Sharon Snawerdt of Modern Woodmen. Snawerdt adds, “Ninety percent of survey respondents indicated that spending time with extended family is one of the most important parts of their lives.”

Family Feuds:
The holidays are a time for “peace on earth,” but that doesn’t stop Uncle Joe from fighting with Aunt Helen.

“Holidays are a time when people come home, and grown, mature adults will fall back into those old childhood roles in the family and past hard feelings resurface,” explains Olsen. “Big sis just can’t get over feeling that baby brother was spoiled rotten, even if they are both in their 40s.”

Olsen says that all family members should be included in the invitation, even the black sheep, or the two family members having a feud. “If someone refuses to come because so and so will be there, there is nothing you can do about it,” she says. “That is his or her baggage.” Olsen offers some tips for how to handle family members who may not like to be in the same room with one another.

- Appoint a neutral member of the family to take on the role of mediator. (This person should use humor and tact to encourage guests to avoid touchy subjects. In other words, if Uncle Joe starts discussing Grandpa’s will, the mediator should gracefully make it known that this isn’t the appropriate time to bring up that topic.)
- Assign seats using place cards.
- Set up smaller table arrangements throughout the house.
- Limit alcoholic beverages. Alcohol makes some people braver and more confrontational.

Giving and Receiving:
It wouldn’t be the holidays without gift giving, but as families grow larger many struggle with how to handle it. Olsen offers these tips:

- A grab bag. In this system, set a price limit and have each guy bring a guy gift and each gal bring a gal gift.
- A drawing; each participant planning to attend the event draws a name from a hat (or via phone or email) and brings a gift for only that person.
- A homemade gift exchange; crafts, food items, and artwork are good suggestions. This is for the family willing to invest some time, but not as much money.
- A “time” gift certificate exchange; these can feature anything from snow shoveling to babysitting services.
- A kids-only exchange.
- A collection of donations for the local food pantry or group sponsorship of a needy family.

Finally, Olsen suggests forgoing the gift giving altogether and replacing it with activities even more meaningful. Aside from the standard board games and card games, your family may want to try these ideas:

Games and Activities:
- “Picture Lotto” – Make your own game using copies of your family pictures.
- “Frosty” – Use some toilet paper, construction paper and family teams to have some family fun in this interactive game.
- “Unwrap the Gift” – This game uses a bag of candy or small gift items, a multi-layer-wrapped gift box and some music to create fun for the very young, as well as the adults.
- Scrapbook, photography, and video ideas
- A Family Time Capsule – It can’t get much easier than videotaping the festivities to save for posterity. You can incorporate interviews with family members asking them to share their favorite memories or a song.
- Gathering Scrapbook – More than compiling a multifaceted record of a gathering, creating scrapbooks can be a rewarding. At your next family event have each family create a page. Take pictures that day thinking about each family, so you can get a representative sample. When the film is developed, place the appropriate pictures with that family’s page. Compile together and share at your next gathering.

“The important part of gift giving isn’t so much what you get, but prolonging the family time together,” says Olsen. “Instead of a gift exchange, you can think of activities or games to do together. You can sing carols or look over photo albums. You can view family videos or make a video heirloom. Any holiday tradition is an opportunity beyond eating to spend time together. You have a short amount of time together, but you want to make it a good memory for the whole year.”

“That’s one gift everyone will appreciate.”

Thanksgiving Decoration Ideas

November 6, 2011, 6:17 AM

By: Brigitte Smith

Thanksgiving is a wonderful holiday! What a spiritual renewal to take a day to reflect over the past year about just how good God has been to you and your family, to give you harvest and shelter, health and hope.

To get the most out of this joyous occasion, make some holiday crafts with your children. These days, Thanksgiving often gets squeezed out by Halloween’s spooky decorations and the lights and gala of Christmas. With the following holiday crafts, your home can be decorated for this quieter but important celebration.

Turkeys are a natural choice for decorations. A familiar project at this time of year is for a child to trace around her hand and make the resulting drawing into a turkey. The thumb is the head and the fingers are the tail feathers all displayed.

While many of the turkeys that are raised for food are now the domestic white variety, the turkeys eaten by the Pilgrims at the first Thanksgiving were the wild brown ones. The tail feathers on a wild turkey are brown, but they are iridescent. Catching light and appearing to be multi-colored. This is why children color the tail feathers in bright colors.

The turkey’s head has a wattle under the beak. This is a vertical flap of loose skin that is red colored. Be sure to draw this in order to make the hand turkey look like a turkey. Add skinny legs and bird feet. When done, the children can cut out the turkeys and hang them on the wall. It’s really cute to make a whole flock of these turkeys in the sizes of all the hands in the family. The little hand shapes are particularly sweet.

Another nice turkey decoration to make when making Thanksgiving holiday crafts is a turkey door decoration. Make a brown construction paper body and head of a turkey. Now make a large number of colored feather shapes. Each family member writes on a feather something he or she is thankful for before attaching as part of the turkey’s tail.

Repeat until all the feathers are used, and hang the turkey on the front door to greet visitors with a message of gratitude. Make a sign to accompany the turkey that says “Give thanks to the Lord for He is good!” or simply “Be thankful!” or “We’re thankful for you!” or whatever you like.

Children love making construction paper chains. To further decorate the house for Thanksgiving, let them make a paper chain in fall colors as one of their holiday crafts. Using 9 by 12 inch construction paper, cut the paper in half across the long side and cut the halves into one inch thick six inch long strips. Use a stapler to attach the ends of the strip into a circle. Loop the next strip into the circle and staple it.

Continue the process alternating colors of brown, red, yellow, and orange. When the chains are long, you can drap them along the ceiling or stair rail. If you don’t make the door turkey, the children can write something they’re thankful for on each strip of paper before adding it to the chain.

Thanksgiving is too nice a holiday to let the other more commercial holidays crowd it out. By making holiday crafts to decorate the home for Thanksgiving, you can keep this day special, too. The extended family, aunts, uncles, grandparents, etc., will be pleased to see the holiday crafts the young ones have made to decorate the house and make it cheerful for their visit.
