The Aries Child


This baby is going to be the boss from day one.  How dare you spend any of your attention on anything but them?  There is not a subtle bone in this child's body.  They will be very direct in their actions; if they don't like food you give them they will spit it out or spit it at you and then giggle about it.  They like to do things faster than most babies too.  They will be quick to crawl, walk, and talk.  They may just skip the whole crawling phase altogether so they can get around a lot faster.  Baby proofing is going to be essential with this child.  Teething will be really bad, so make sure to stock up on the cold gummies for them.  If you tell an Aries baby no, they will say it right back to you and do it anyways.  Headstrong is an understatement.

The older they get you will see how truly affectionate they are.  This child will always be hugging and kissing.  As soon as they are done with that they will be throwing a tantrum, but then win you over with their big smile.  There is rarely a dull moment.  They pretty good sharers, unless they don't like someone than forget about it.  You will have to warm the babysitter to stand their ground with your child no matter what.

Aries children have beautiful imaginations.  They are not a huge fan of schoolwork, because they would much rather be playing.  If they actually put their mind to something there will be nothing to stop them.  Finding a way to make homework fun will be crucial for good grades.  They will probably love reading, so stock these children up with lots of books.  They are natural born leaders being the head of their pack of friends.  Their hearts are as soft as they are strong, and they are as mean as they are nice, all wrapped up in a fiery little package.  People that pick on them will surely feel the Aries fire, but it will then be followed by tears.  Whenever they take a tumble in life, they will pick themselves right up and brush themselves off.  They are such spunky and strong creatures.

Holidays will be magical times for Aries babes.  They will love all the fairytale creatures that come with the holidays.  Let them believe in Santa for as long as possible, because they will believe fiercely.  You must hide presents well, seeing that they are quite impatient and may go looking. 

You will need to teach the Aries child how to make and KEEP their money.  They will love to spend their allowances.  Teaching them how to save is very important with this sign seeing that they are overly generous with material items.  These kids LOVE praise.  So giving it to them when they are deserving of it will go a long ways.  If the Aries kid isn't kept busy, they will get themselves in trouble.  Finding constructive hobbies and projects for them is key in their growth.

These children are magic, and will always believe in magic long after they are grown and gone.  If you gently lead them while letting them lead themselves at the same time, they will make the impossible happen in their lifetime making you one proud parent of such a strong, fierce, and bold individual. 


Libra Woman - Taurus Man

When you first meet these two you will assume he is the strong earthly grounded one, and that she is the feminine sweet and quiet one.  You are quite mistaken.  You can never be too sure about a Libra.  Their scales go up and down constantly balancing everything in their lives.  She is a sassy woman, and a natural born leader, and he is a lot more sensitive than you would ever assume.  He is definitely stubborn, but it is balanced by his sweetness.

He will really appreciate her strong yet feminine beauty.  There is something that is so airy yet rock solid about her.  Helpless to you, but pioneering in her own way.  She encompasses everything you didn't think was possible to be wrapped up in one human being. She is a mental sign that will talk out all of her decisions quite frequently.  He will try to find interest in everything she says, but sometimes it will lull him to sleep.  This will put her in a tizzy, but I promise you he doesn't mean any harm by his boredom.  He just makes the most practical decision there is to make, and that's the end of it.  It is so simple for him, yet so complicated for her.  This will make her upset at times, but he just needs to learn how to show that he cares by really listening to her.

They are very sexually attracted to one another.  They are both ruled by the romantic and sweet sign of Venus, who we all know is the planet of love.  She is sugary and lite when it comes to sex, and he is deep and sensual.  Together they will have wonderful togetherness.


He will really change things when he comes in her life for the better.  He will settle her mind, soothe her, and help her make good decisions that seemed so complicated before she met him.  He just makes her life make more sense all around.  His common sense is something she lacks at times.  In retrospect, her optimistic spirit will make him so much happier on a day to day basis.  All she has to do is flash him her dimpled smile, and he will start to turn his frown upside-down.  After she flutters around in her charming way, he will want to keep her forever.  He must remember that caged birds don't sing they cry, so he must always give her an element of freedom.

These two lovely signs will need slight adjustments here and there, but overall their beautiful auras will blend well.  He will be her teddy bear, and she will be his beautiful pink bird.  She will love his masculinity, and he will love her clear as a bell voice and intelligence.  They both manage each other with charm and tact.


Among Stars

Hello my wonderful readers!  I want to introduce to you someone very special that can take you beyond your Sun Sign.  Her name is Cannelle (which is cinnamon in French - so cool); she is a Leo Queen, fellow blogger, and Astrology lover over at Among Stars.  Her blog is a great one to follow if you want more of a read that updates you on what's currently going on with the stars.  She writes about important transits (planets that pass across or through certain houses or signs), as well as the moon, important Trines, and so much more.  This will really take your Astrology knowledge to the next level.  You can easily find the link to her blog on my sidebar to the right.  So without further adieu, Cannelle...



 

So I'm sure not many of you know me, My name is Cannelle and I have an astrology blog by the name of Among Stars. I'm also a big fan of the lovely Scorpion lady Desiree and follower of this awesome blog. Alright, now that we've gotten introductions out of the way I want to tell you about a current astrological aspect that I'm actually quite excited about being a Leo with Aries rising and having a lot of fire both in my chart and personality. This aspect is the Grand Fire Trine. 

As you may or may not know Uranus has been in Aries since May of 2010, Jupiter entered Leo earlier this year in July and Mars just entered Sagittarius on September 13th forming a Grand Fire Trine. This fire energy is all about self-expression, self discovery and showing the world who we are and what we have to offer. I'm going to break down each transit individually so you can better understand what these combined energies bring to the table starting with Uranus in Aries. Uranus energy is all about inventiveness, experimentation, rebellion and originality and we have this planet in the sign of Aries which rules the first house of self-identity. Aries energy is out spoken, independent, impatient and self-centered. This transit in itself is a bit brash. Then we have Jupiter the planet of expansion and optimism in Leo, the ruler of the 5th house of creativity, legacy, children and romance. Leo energy is gracious, creative, honorable and needy of praise or recognition. Which brings us finally to Mars which is all about action, initiative, passion and even aggression in the sign of Sagittarius, the ruler of the 9th house of travel, philosophy and religion. Sagittarius is adventurous, truth-seeking, wandering and brutally honest. 

All of these energies combined form a cosmic explosion of fire energy. It's a time of passion, adventure, and breaking down barriers. It's about taking center stage and being a leader in your life. It really brings about a focus on the self (Leo, Aries) and the energy and passion to show that off and put it out there. This Grand Fire Trine is about self discovery and coming to terms with your identity and letting it shine. Who are YOU? What do YOU want? What are YOU going to do to get it? That my friends is the Grand Fire Trine broken down. This trine will awaken the fire in us all and it's energy affects us all but will have a greater effect on anyone with a lot of Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius in their chart. It will also affect the area in your charts in which you have those fire signs. This trine will only last about six weeks when Mars will then leave Sagittarius and enter Capricorn in October and is pretty much giving us a little taste of what's in store when Saturn will enter Sagittarius at the end of the year forming another goodness, gracious, great trine of fire! Annnd with that corny zinger, I'm out!
 

 

Libra on the Cusp of Virgo: September 24-27


You are a Libra through and through, but you have that touch of Virgo perfection that glazes your personality ever so slightly.  You analyze situations a bit more than the average Libra would, but you are not harshly critical.  You handle things in a fair way with an analyzed approach.  You will love beauty, especially flowers.  Virgos love gardening, so when you mix that with Libra's love of beauty you get a person who will swoon over a dozen pink peonies. 

You like to work in groups so that you are able to lead like a Libra, but talk to others about your thoughts like a Virgo.  Libras are balanced, and Virgos spend a lot of attention on details that don't always matter.  Having your Libra to even those traits out will make you a beautiful blend of knowing when you have reached the end.  These people will make wonderful critics of movies, food, restaurants, etc.  This is because they have a true eye for beauty as well as having a touch of constructive criticism.

Being a Libra, you will steer clear of conflict, but you will be able to handle it with a level head.  You are all about harmony and pleasant. You are a wonderful balance of two truly beautiful signs.

 

It's Libra Season

 

It is officially Libra Season!  Happy Birthday to all of the beautiful Libras out there in the world.  What would we do without your heart-melting dimpled smiles, your fair nature, your sweet charm?  The world would be such a saltier place without all of you. 

This year I met a very special Libra Man that has completely swept me off my feet all the way up to Cloud 9, and I am so thankful every day for him.  I am sure you are very thankful for the Libras in your life, and want to find them the absolute perfect birthday gift!  I would say that Libras are the hardest Sun Sign to shop for, because their taste level is so high.  I have put together some fun gifts that you can purchase right here on Simply Sun Signs that will surely live up to their high standards...

Libra is all about beauty and charm. Some even say they are the most beautiful sign in the Zodiac, and I can't disagree.

Virgo on the Cusp of Libra: September 18 - 23


This will bring a lot of balance and harmony to the typical Virgo's uptight attitude. Don't get me wrong; you still have wonderful precision because you are a Virgo after all, but you are a little more flexible than most born under your Sun Sign.  This is a placement that makes the person fair and thoughtful.  You will work hard at everything you do, but if you don't get it perfect you won't totally freak out.  Your social life is a lot more lively, and put into importance than most Virgos; you just know how and when to let loose.  Most Virgos see things in a calculated way, but you are able to see the gray.

You love harmony, and will accomplish whatever it takes to get it in your life in any way possible.  Gardening and yoga are two great things that this placement will love.  There is rarely anyone with this placement that is self-absorbed or self-centered.  You will see this person caring for others often, and beautifully.  You don't care for a ton of compliments for what just comes to you naturally.  There is a wonderful humbleness about you.

You enjoy options like a Libra, and love to talk like a Virgo.  You are easy to like, and will find friends with no problems.  There is a loveliness mixed with a lot of self-discipline in this person.  There are quite a few musicians and artists with this placement because they have a wonderful precision mixed with great artistic taste.  There is a need to educate and interact with people on a day to day basis.  People will love to listen and learn from you.  You may even just change the world one day.   Your charismatic nature, and comfort with sparking up a conversation with anyone will make for a beautiful personality mix altogether.

 

SHOP - GRAND OPENING

Wow!  I can't believe the day is here. I have put in a lot of work, thought, and preparation for today.  I have scoured the internet and even the local farmer's market to get you the best products that I could possibly find.  I am so excited to share all of these amazing and personalized items with you.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.  Please let me know if you have ANY questions.  So without further adieu, I introduce to you SHOP...



 

Cancer Woman - Taurus Man


When he meets this mystical Moon child, he is in trouble; trouble in a good way.  This beautiful woman has a way of seeping into his soul so deep that he will be forever changed.  She will show him how to feel with all of his heart, which none before have really been able to do.  Many Cancer women I meet are just waiting for that right partner in life to reach her full potential.  Don't get me wrong; Cancer women are great alone, but it is innate in them to care for others.  They truly shine in that area.  Before she can get to that part she needs to find a stable and secure partner.  Taurus' middle name is stable.  He will turn all of her frightful dreams into a fairytale reality.

He likes things to go at a slow and steady pace.  He loves permanency, and so does she.  She will just have to let love grow naturally, and be patient with him.  It is not going to happen overnight, but it will happen.  He does not break down easily, but she does.  He will be a great rock and support to her through her lunar swings.  They also both have a wonderful sense of humor that will mesh well with one another.  These two have so much in common, but there is one thing that they do not; jealousy.  His jealousy can lead her into deep sad emotional states.  She may even snap her claws at him in rejection, but with compromise and understanding, this can be an easy fix.  Her clingy attitude will also drive him insane, but what they must see that jealousy and clingyness are similar.  Not the same, but similar, so they should be able to empathize with one another. 

She has a hard time telling him her feelings, but not great at hiding them.  If she could just let him know how much she needs him he would feel so much better, and secure.  She will try to make it up to him by baking him his favorite cupcakes, but he doesn't want cupcakes; he wants words of affirmation.  Then he wants the cupcakes. We all know how Taurus men love their food.

Sex with them is amazing.  It is sensual, sweet, and satisfying.  He can coax her right into his arms so smoothly she will wonder how she gets there at times.  There is something so personal about how they make love, and it makes her feel so special and safe.  He makes her feel wanted and needed, which is a wonderful way to feel.  His sincerity touches her way past her shell all the way to her soft soul.  In return she will admire him the way every man wants to be admired.  She will never leave him, give him a beautiful cozy home, and beautiful bouncing babies.  They can have it all.

Her moods are like the Moon; waxing and waning, but he has all the patience in the world for her because he knows she is worth it.  They always find their way back to each other, and it is not hard because their love is genuine.  Genuine love is not something you find everyday.

6. You act obnoxiously, and have no hygiene - A screeching wild banshee of a woman who wreaks of alcohol will send this man running.  He wants a classy poised woman who smells like vanilla with a touch of floral.  This guy is all about showing his lady off, so be worth bragging about.

7. You are not ladylike - If you show up on a date with chipped black nail polish, a baggy shirt, and flip flops he will notice.  Spend time on your appearance, and look put together because he sure as shit will be.

9.  You think that you are better than him - You don't want to completely fall for his charm, but you don't want to act like a stuck up bitch either.  This guy is going to want a solid balance of both. 

10. Dress skanky - This guy will not be impressed by a short leather skirts, and hooker heels with spikes on them.  If you wreak of sex appeal he will see you as too extreme.  He wants a feminine, classy, smart, balanced, and secure woman.  Secure women do not need to sell a man with their body.
