By Christine Schoenwald Life is so busy, and we don’t have nearly enough time to really sit down and talk with our close friends and family. By the time you’re finally able to have that coffee date or dinner with a dear friend, you spend most of the time just catching up. Sometimes the things we really want the people in our lives to know only come out in times of stress (like in the middle of a heated argument). But based on your zodiac sign, here’s the things people really want you to know.
Yahoo Beauty’s monthly beauty horoscopes are made possible by Aurora Tower, an astrologer who is passionate about the intersection of astrology and beauty. August is the Leo time of year when we feel buoyed by the warm weather, encouraged and impassioned to take our creative endeavors to the next level, and let ourselves be enchanted by the flutter of playful love and fun. Leo beauty is confident and carefree: Think “Big Hair, Don’t Care!” But with Venus, the planet of beauty and love, moving retrograde all month, we are each asked to re-evaluate certain areas of our life and comb through the past and present for clues to a better future.
Ask your friends to make introductions. If your friends tell you that you need to get out there, only you can tell yourself when it’s time to step out.
The Moon in your sign this New Year’s Eve is making you the star attraction, Taurus, so get yourself to the place the world will be watching: New York City! Bundle up for the all-day all-night party in Time’s Square while you wait for the legendary Waterford crystal-covered ball to drop, signaling the start of the New Year for the USA. Give whoever you’re with a nice big smooch as the fireworks explode above Manhattan, then join in as the entire crowd sings “Auld Lang Syne.” Grab some New Year’s Day brunch in the Village, and perhaps a little sip of the hair of the dog to set you straight.
This week, honor Venus in your sign: Go to Guatemala for a jubilant Day of the Dead celebration and create barriletes gigantes (enormous decorated kites), a key part of the holiday. Or connect with Saturn in Scorpio on Halloween as you sit at the at the Sala Keoku Sculpture Garden (in in Nong Khai in Northern Thailand) with some shaking skeletons or a stone god with 10 arms clenching swords, daggers, and tridents.
Be inspired to break down those stubborn emotional walls as you walk along the beach near the beautifully eroded rocks in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, or in Étretat in Haute-Normandie, France. This week, recognize that when you let things flow, even the most seemingly solid structures can come down, and it’s for the better.
Or head into the magnificent nature of Madagascar — the island is full of the colors you need to surround yourself with. Allow Venus to open your eyes (and heart) to the natural beauty around you and allow Mercury Retrograde to give you a chance to just breathe and enjoy yourself. Why not satisfy all of these needs in beautiful Mallorca?
