March 2013 Horoscopes

Pisces

Happy Birthday Little Fishies!  Truth be told, I have a soft spot for Pisces.  They truly are the kindest and tender-heartedest folks, but I do like to joke that if Pisces are fish then their subspecies is Self-fish.  Don’t fret little Fishies, I mean that in a loving way.  It isn’t that you aren’t generous; you are very giving, but also very self-involved.  Pisces just aren’t capable of personal objectivity, but it isn’t a deep character flaw and you make up for it in many other ways.  Pisces are super charming, fun to be around and usually decent in bed (don’t expect them to choke you out or anything though).  This year has all the makings for wonderful growth opportunities if you wildly abandon your drippy fears.  Grab opportunities when they come, but maintain your integrity at all costs.  Without your honor, you have nothing.

Aries

Aries, one of your best traits is your dependability and general talent for making shit happen.  A true energetic catalyst, you draw people near and then get them all buzzed up.  This Aries flame gets some people all hot and bothered, so watch out for relationship interlopers.  If you are single, watch out for the HPV – contrary to the Girls propaganda not All Adventurous Women Do…  What else?  March asks you to dig deep and make some decisions about work.  What do you really want and what are you willing to sacrifice with regard to your quality of life?  Time is your most precious gift; use it wisely.

 Taurus

With the wake of February’s crazy upheaval behind you, now you must put one foot in front of the other and make decisions to right the course.  Determine what you really want from your life and relationships.  Vigorously pursue the very best for yourself because you deserve thorough satisfaction.  Talented and trusted, professionally Taurus has no where to go but up, up, up.  Those threatened by your success turn an evil eye on your back.  Repel the negativity with a shield of confidence.  Even though you are deeply sensitive, don’t let ‘em get you down.  Stand strong in the face of evil.

 Gemini

Intellectually Gemini surpasses most, but they can be some of the dumbest motherfuckers when it comes to common sense.  Focus.  When you are scattered you are at your least effective.  Ruthlessly clear obstructions blocking your path.  Gemini excels with a plan and plenty of time.  The question is whether you are able to truly formulate a plan of your own volition and with your own dreams in mind.  Let go of the coattails of those you’ve been clutching and move forward on crafting the life you truly desire.  If you want to be admired, turn yourself into someone admirable.

 Cancer

Recently Cancer has experienced some of the calmest waters in recent memory.  Professionally, you’ve made critical gains.  Personally, Cancer experiences greater and more intense intimacy than ever before.  So what is missing little Crab?  When completing your moral inventory do you get paper cuts?  You can’t go back and change the past, but you can stop recapitulating the same mistakes while recreating the same situations.  Look at what is going well in your life right now and properly nourish these areas.  Distractions are landmines for Cancer; remain committed to the beneficial.

 Leo

Bold Leos occasionally write checks their asses can’t cash, and this March they find themselves overdrafted.  Friends and family react with impatience at the pickles you get yourself into in March, Leo.  Hopefully, you’ve banked some goodwill because you are going to need it.  Let me spell it out for you: Leos need help this month.  What all this drama reveals is an unexpected confidant.  You’ll grow closer to a person you weren’t even sure you liked and that will surprise you.  Whether or not this person has romantic inclinations is yet to be determined, but you certainly have some sway in intensifying or deflating the potential suitor’s feelings.

Virgo

Mostly Tauruses wear the stubborn crown in the astrological court, but you could really threaten to dethrone Bulls this month Virgo.  For some reason you refuse to accept certain realities of your situation.  A change is in order and you must abide the universe and what it has in store for you.  No amount of digging in of the heels will prevent the inevitable.  Resistance is futile.  Virgo has been looking better than ever lately.  Goes to show your commitment to certain regimes provide legitimate results.  This month invest in a good moisturizer and perhaps even splurge on a facial if time and finances permit.

 Libra

In some ways February felt like the longest month for Libra, and you welcome March with open arms.  Don’t worry, this month will embrace Libra with affection in return.  Simple pleasures like long walks bring deep satisfaction as you peek towards an early spring.  These easy afternoons and honest conversations begin to stir Libras from their winter funk.  While flipping through fashion magazines you contemplate a new look for spring.  You always do well with black & white in modern shapes, but how can you add some unexpected sex appeal to your daily swagger?

Scorpio

Oh Scorpio what are we going to do with you?  Some may perceive your recent course of action as impulsive, but you never act rashly.  Quite the opposite actually, Scorpios ruminate on decisions at length before setting forth with a decisive and definite plan.  Get on board or get out of the way.  Conduct yourself with integrity and kindness regardless of how momentarily impatient or hostile you may feel.  When you look back at your greatest regrets, you’ll note they almost universally involve your mistreatment of others, especially those you love.  Remember Karma is only a bitch if you are.

 Sagittarius

Sags always try to paint everything with a pretty pink rosy brush.  One Sag I know just told me a long story culminating in a dead dog and she still tried to tie it up with a positive bow.  It’s a dead dog, lady.  There really isn’t an upside.  After a period of aimlessness, Sags find clear and unequivocal direction in the coming months.  Just because you follow the map doesn’t mean it will lead you to your destination.  Ballsy Sags explore detours to get where they really want to go.  There will be a few moments that test your honor and dignity.  These tests you must not fail.

 Capricorn

Dutiful Capricorns feel particularly put-upon and resentful recently.  The hang-dog looks have been dimming your shine and bringing down your daily circle.  Expressions of gratitude help reverse your sad-Sally attitude.  Maybe when you realize how good appreciation feels you’ll send some to the deserving.  Caps excel at sweet and attentive gestures.  It is the grander proclamations of love that choke you up.  Clear your throat Cap.  Nut up and make your intentions clear.  You know what you want, that’s never been the problem.  Effectuating your desires is a different story.  Get out of your own way Capricorn.

Aquarius

Aquarius floats in and out of March like a feather.  Mostly you spend the next few weeks in a period of preparation, setting everything up to properly execute on future plans.  Richly talented and great at navigating the nuances of your professional world, there is really no excuse for you not to succeed.  Two possibilities?  Aquarius isn’t punctual and occasionally lacks gravitas.  Consider if one or both of these qualities limits your growth.  A cleanse could do you good right about now.  Abstain from food and alcohol for a day and see what good comes of it.

February 2012 Horoscopes

Aquarius

Happy Birthday Aquarius!  Neptune enters the scene this month for Aquarius, leaving you cloudy, burry, and seeing life through a Vaseline-coated lens.  This is not the month for communication, big decisions, or executing plans.  Seek a second opinion from a trusted expert if you must move ahead with major moments in February.  This phase of lapsed judgment will pass as the stars change, so don’t panic.  Stick to habits, routines, and grounding activities.  Your greatest moments of clarity will come from artistic expression, so put energy towards painting, sewing, dancing, or whatever your form of creativity.  The theme of your romantic life this month should be STFU.  Don’t whine and keep your feelings to yourself.  You will save yourself from a mountain full of unnecessary drama, and others will not only notice, but admire your silent suffering.

Pisces

Pisces turn inward this February and regroup with periods of peaceful isolation.  To move forward, Pisces must formulate a plan without distraction.  Money has never been of greater concern, and financial strategy becomes an essential part of charting the course ahead.  Get ultra organized, follow a schedule, and handle your bizness.  As you well know, time is passing quickly.  Do not let it pass you by.  As for love, inhibitions leave you uncommunicative, and you rightly sense a general lack of receptivity to your ideas.  If relations become too strained, take a break.

Aries

The theme for Aries in February is caretaking.  Take care of yourself, family, friends and animals.  Clean the house.  Bake a muffin.  Make others feel loved and important.  Push through daily goals.  Receive acknowledgments, praise, and recognition with tact.  In intimate relations, frustrated desires and obstacles trigger anger resulting in rash behavior and ultimately regret.  Control that fiery temper in the face of unavoidable conflict and confrontation.

Taurus

Taurus splits energy between two areas this February: spirituality and law.  First, the strictures and confines of traditional religion comfort Taurus, and now more than ever you may feel drawn to worship in the traditional sense.  Feel no shame in exploring this path further.  Legal matters take practical precedence.  Document drafting, financial planning, and future predictions mix together to make or break the venture.  Provide authentic and accurate information.

Gemini

Geminis always feel a bit put upon, like no one appreciates their gifts.  Give the constant quest for recognition a rest, and turn your energy towards your financial resources.  Are you allocating them wisely?  Tend to debts and everything you and your partner hold in common.  Speaking of partners, perplexing relationship issues seem clear to you now.  Geminis begin to understand their part and the part their honeys play in relationship breakdowns.  Patience, compassion, and kindness smooth rough patches.

Cancer

February continues a theme of balance and stability which extends throughout 2012.  To really feel heard, you need to share your troubles with those around you.  The wise advice of your confidants proves especially helpful and soothing.  Listen to your intuition and avoid involvements that feel uncomfortable.  This time you’ll get a second bite at the apple.  When on a pessimistic jag, Cancers can get a little me-against-the-world.  Don’t give into that self-pitying tendency.  Indulge it, and you’ll end up feeling overwhelmed and pressured.

Leo

Leos must balance practicality against romanticism and provide a generous allotment of time for both.  Professionally, get organized and maximize your contribution by remaining orderly and efficient.  Make deliberate and mindful decisions.  This is not the month to play therapist with troubled co-workers.  At most, help colleagues with new methods.  Play with puppies, ride horses, and walk the dog.  Now is the time for the joy of animals.  Leos fan the flames of romance this Valentine’s Day, and your effort is noticed and appreciated by the recipient of all your good woo.  Leos relax competitiveness, work to please and create harmony.  Someone will try and seduce you; only you can decide if you want to fuck.

Virgo

Spend energy showing others how much you care this February Virgo.  Repair any frayed relationship edges.  Put your own concerns aside and offer others sustenance and praise. You will receive great blessings for your generosity.  Unfortunately this February won’t be particularly romantic.  Discord plagues personal relationships.  Finding meaningful emotional connections proves challenging this month.  This fleeting phase will pass, so don’t overreact.  Closeness resumes between you and your partner as the stars change.  Allow this energy to pass without forcing any issues and all will return to normal soon.

Libra

Libras need to tie up loose ends in February.  Envision the end result and then consider how to methodically implement order and complete the unfinished.  Picturing goals accomplished conjures magic that will help Libras spin action into manifestation.  Remain patient.  Use talents for the benefit of others.  You will shine brightest when you share your resources.  Appreciation and positivity follows.  A beneficial opportunity may arise from an opportunity or contact.

Scorpio

Scorpios look to find their highest purpose and means of serving this year.  You must communicate values, ideals, and beliefs to shape your destiny.  Chat with neighbors, reach out to family, and keep the lines of communication open.  Honor responsibilities and commitments.  So few folks are reliable; take pride in your dependability.  Now more than ever, Scorpios crave love, affection, beauty and pleasure.  Impulse control might be a problem for Scorpios who haven’t learned to manage their baser instincts.  Lingering unhappiness in a close relationship surfaces now.  Discuss your concerns, make an effort and see what happens.  Short trips provide beneficial insights.

Sagittarius

Ambition surges through Sags in February.  This is a time to define and determine your values.  Give thoughtfully.  Surprise your loved ones with unexpected tokens of affection. These small gestures create indelible memories for the recipients.  Sags reap rewards when they let go of expectation.  Extra charming, your flirting boosts the confidence of those around you.  Those in your circle perceive you as loving, affectionate, and aware of their needs and feelings.  Because of your strong relationships, others are willing to help and cooperate with your trajectory.

Capricorn

Capricorns focus on health and creating a lifestyle which supports wellness.  With this new regimen of self-care, you will take on a new glow and even the Sun will shine a little brighter. Capricorns spin self-esteem out of accomplishment.  The New Moon brings old conflicts.  The easiest solution is to flee the scene.  Strange, cryptic, or unsettling moments are actually disguised compliments.  Unexpected friendly messages arrive from unlikely sources.  While you may not understand, listen.  Use honesty and share.  Avoid assumptions.

Demeter Clarc Manners Moment: The Rules of Engagement

With the New Year comes the inevitable flood of engagement announcements.  Word trickled out that boring Biel and Timberlake got engaged in Wyoming.  Always-the-bride-never-the-bridesmaid Drew Barrymore and her boyfriend Will Kopelman also allegedly agreed to marry.  Trawick recently sprung a diamond on Britney, and Matthew slid carats on Camila’s finger too.

So let’s have a chat about a proper proposal shall we?  These rules apply hetero or homo or any which way.  Here at Demeter Clarc we believe you can put your dick wherever you like as long as you do so politely.  Without further ado, the rules of engagement:

1) Do not piggyback on the excitement of another holiday.  No rings under the tree.  Don’t double down on a birthday.  Don’t plunder the thunder of another fun day because you are too damn lazy to come up with an interesting proposal.2) Don’t ever hide the ring in food.  Fucking fromage yo.  This approach is not only lazy, but also a choking hazard.  Nobody wants to wait a couple days to “pass” an engagement ring before showing friends.3) Ask a parent.  Now this is going to be a controversial position, but hear me out, okay?  Approaching the parents first is a respectful and deferential gesture.  By going to the parents prior to proposing, it provides them an opportunity to voice any concerns and feel heard.  Now maybe you don’t want to hear what they have to say?  Well, hear this; the parents will have their say one way or another.  Either give them the opportunity early on or hear the truth after they get three cocktails deep into the engagement party.4) Don’t hijack other events and turn them into your engagement party.  Yes, you must announce your engagement, but I’ve been to more than one event where a self-important, love-dazed couple decided to announce their engagement to the room at a totally non-related event.  It’s weird and kinda rude.  And it kinda means you have to invite all those people to the wedding.5) Prepare for a range of reactions.  To be totally dead honest with you, when most people inform me of their engagements I give good congratulations and best wishes, but inside I’m humming the death march to freedom’s funeral.  And I’m not even a jaded divorcee who would very much like to tell you where to shove all that bright-eyed engagement talk.

Are we over ombré?

For the last few years, many ladies have been rocking the ombré hair as seen here on Lily Aldridge.  This low maintenance style actually looks better as it grows out with darker roots and lighter tips. Transitioning from solid root-to-tip color towards gradual dark-to-light makes a lot of sense for fall.  Summer’s highlights can appear a little harsh against fairer skin.  It never hurts to freshen and revise your presentation every season.Ombré mimics the hair’s natural darkening as the Sun retreats and most of us head indoors.  This look feels right for this time of year, no?When executed correctly, the color shift should be subtle and without clear lines of demarcation like Mz. Simpson.  It should not look like the tips of your hair were soaked in a bucket of bleach à la Teyana Taylor.  Some may argue that ombré is so over, but this inexpensive alternative to pricey and high maintenance highlights ain’t going anywhere.  This modern and easy color option flatters most folks.At the moment, Giuliana Rancic is the unabashed poster girl for this trend.  She’s been repping this look for a hot minute.  We agree her extensions are about six inches too long though, right?  Desperate much?Those who want to crank it up a notch, consider a gradient of red hues or working a strong bang into the mix.

Afternoon Delight: Happy 420

Christmas Cleavage

Another weekend in December means more office holiday parties and more felonious fashion choices.  I think it’s time we sat down and had a little chat about appropriate cleavage.  Honestly, deep cleavage is gross.  More porn than Prada, cleavage is a cocktease, not fashion.  Sporting more than two inches of visible cleavage also guarantees no one will look at your face all night.  Acknowledging that some of you bitches love your chichis, and whether they are store-bought or natural, come cocktail hour, you like to put your girls on display.  Keep the following examples in mind if you must display the bust.

Dita does it right, subtle and sexy.Christina, I love you, but no.  Her titties arrived fifteen minutes before she did.Blake’s so much less offensive when she doesn’t force the girls front and center.Borderline Barrymore, she saves it with soft makeup and covered arms. They shouldn’t face east and west.¡Ya basta! Vergara!A skosh too much moonz, Mz. Greene.
