What Hairstyle Would Your Sign Be?

Here at Horoscope.com, we’ve shown you your sign’s signature traits, perfect bathing suit, best sex position, and ideal perfume. Now, we’ve got the just-right hairstyle for your sign: the look that embodies your zodiac spirit to a T. More than that, your perfect hairstyle holds a message that can help you get past the hurdles your sign has put up for you—so you can not only look your best, but be your best. In other words, look past the hair and look into the soul. Work with us here. Trust us like your favorite hair stylist.  

Your Sign’s Signature Hairstyle:


Aries 

You’re the Grace Jones flattop. Just like the look of the musical icon, you’re confident and adventurous, but also impatient and impulsive. As a fire sign, you’re a tad temperamental, but whose hair isn’t? No one’s that we know.

If The Look Could Talk: Bold is beautiful, but patience and restraint can be good for the soul. Radical choices are great, as long as they feel right, deep down.

Taurus 
You, Bulls, are the donut-aided oversize bun. You appear calm and unbreakable, but who knows what lies within? That’s a secret between you, your mirror, and your bathroom sink. 

If The Look Could Talk: Yes, you can do anything you put your mind to—but sometimes, it’s okay to let things go. Letting your hair down and cutting loose does not mean letting go of your dreams and aspirations. 

Gemini 
Gemini, you’re the asymmetric chop, just like Chrissy Teigen rocked over the winter. You had to have seen this coming, right? Gemini…two-faced…asymmetrical…booyah. Just remember that what others may see as inconsistent or fickle is really just versatile and ready for change.

If The Look Could Talk: Trying two things at once is thrilling—but sometimes exhausting. Experiment with one thing at a time! 

Cancer
Super long, super straight, super luxe—your hair is 
clinging, protective, and craving a stable home life. While the look is gorgeous, it also requires a lot of maintenance. Any fluctuation from routine leads to total mayhem.

If The Look Could Talk: Fluctuations, are part of life. Embrace the unknown (and humidity-induced frizz), and just see what happens! 

Leo 
Leo, friend, you are the iconic look of Farrah Fawcett’s feathered (f)locks. Current contemporaries include Selena Gomez, who rocked the waves for the recent Bad Liar movie. Expansive, pompous, and with a flair for drama, don’t let yourself become intolerant. That’s a good message for everyone actually—everyone read that last part!

If The Look Could Talk: Sometimes, it pays to chill out when you’re ahead. Going a little over the top can definitely get you noticed, but is that always a good thing? 

Virgo
Hello, MSNBC star Mika Brezinski, Claire Underwood from House of Cards, and any background extra in a film scene meant to convey corporate or political power. You are the power bob. Attentive to details, you keep your emotions—aka split ends—reined. Be careful that the meticulous eye you keep on your do doesn’t result in seeming shy or closed off, or worse, actually being shy or closed off!

If The Look Could Talk: Imperfection can be hot as hell—and help you stand out from the crowd. It’s okay to be a bit messy, and let your hair down! 

Libra 
Your sign wants hair like Blake Lively’s. Like her romantic and flirty boho waves, you have a spirited, carefree, devil-may-care attitude—which can come with a bit of an identity crisis. Is your hair curly or straight? While you eventually embrace the in-between (with the help of a lot of product) others can be confused about how to lock down your personality. 

If The Look Could Talk: When you’re in love with your life, nothing else matters. Let if flow! 

Scorpio 
You are your hair extensions: powerful, bold, attention-grabbing, and potentially problematic. The key to making this hairstyle harmonious in your life is both embracing the upkeep and also keeping the deets on the down low. That’s right: Let everyone think you #wokeuplikethis; sometimes keeping your moves to yourself can pay off.

If The Look Could Talk: Personal upkeep is important. If you don’t attend to your needs (like regularly taking care of your hair … or your heart) something dramatic will happen. And it won’t be pretty. 

Sagittarius 
Sag, baby, you’re a Halle Berry pixie—careless and in love with freedom (from having to brush your hair or wait for it to air dry)! But it doesn’t have to be permanent: Those who roam free will often return home, aka grow out their hair. Wander as you wish, Sag.

If The Look Could Talk: Just because the look is short doesn’t mean it doesn’t need some love! Same goes for your own well-being. Take those five minutes to put in some product and meditate, already!

Capricorn 
You’re The Rachel! You are loyal, yet at times hard to maintain a relationship with, even according to Jennifer Aniston! Stability is great, but don’t forget to be open to change…like Jennifer Aniston is! For example, you may want to get Jen’s 2017 look, while embracing the sassy spirit of her Friends-era do.

If The Look Could Talk: Change is good. Just because you’re known for one thing doesn’t mean you can’t branch out a little bit. Seriously! 


Aquarius  
Bold, brash, and unconventional, you are the Sinead O’Connor—or the Amber Rose, or Miley Cyrus, or whichever era you prefer—of hair. Inventive, if a little perverse, this shave is close—just like you are with people, once you get to know them!

If The Look Could Talk: Your hair is making a statement. Make sure your voice can match and speak up the next time something is driving you nuts.

Pisces 
You’re Rihanna’s bouncy, full, lush curls—when she decides to let them loose. Sensitive (to humidity), and fearful (of straighteners), this hairdo carries the illusion of naivete. Make up for it with your actions, Pisces.

If The Look Could Talk: Keep embracing authenticity! Your fans (and friends) can’t get enough.

Your Sign’s Biggest Beauty Weakness and How to Fix It

Your Sign’s Biggest Beauty Weakness and How to Fix It

By Ruby Warrington

Your Sign’s Biggest Beauty Weakness and How to Fix It

Click for a complimentary psychic reading.

I remember being surprised to discover that Aries (my Sun sign) is the sign most likely to battle with their hair. I’d always associated the sign of Leo with all things to do with the tresses—as most Leos I know are instantly recognizable for their luscious manes. But, since the head is the body part ruled by Aries, it actually makes sense that we also obsess over our hair more than any other sign. And as I wrote in my recent guide to best summer hairstyle by sign post, I can most definitely relate.
 
So, does this mean every sign has a beauty “issue”? Yep! And all you have to do is look at the body part governed by each sign to see where it might show up. 
 
Read on for an overview of the unique beauty challenge for each sign and how to fix it …And, as with everything related to appearance, also read your rising sign as well. 

 
Aries 
Aries beauty issue: bad hair days 
Aries beauty fix: A close relationship with a stylist you trust 

Not only does Aries rule the head, but being governed by the look-at-me first house of the zodiac means first impressions matter more than average to this sign. Having a trusty go-to up-do can save many a bad hair day, while regular visits to the salon are a must to keep hair healthy and in good shape.

Taurus 
Taurus beauty issue: lipstick on your teeth
Taurus beauty fix: subtle compact checks

Taurus is both the foodie and the beauty junkie of the Zodiac—a combo that doesn’t always mix! A full mouth of luscious lipstick is often a Taurean signature, and to keep it looking neat, choose a brand with staying power. Maybelline’s SuperStay 24-hour lip color is a great pick, and take extra care to check your teeth after every meal.

Gemini 
Gemini beauty issue: bitten nails 
Gemini beauty fix: pretty polish
 

Not only does Gemini rule the hands, but their agile mind can lead to overthinking, anxiety, and nail biting as a result. It’s much harder to bite your nails when you have a clean, fresh manicure; making a weekly appointment at your local nail bar should help curb the habit.

Cancer
Cancer beauty issue: bloating
Cancer beauty fix: a new drinks strategy

Sensitive Cancer rules the stomach, and as the sign that tends to have the most trouble “digesting” difficult emotions, this can show up as bloating around the mid-section. Give your gut a helping hand by investing in a good probiotic, and add some probiotic foods, such as kimchi and kombucha, to your diet. 

 

Leo 
Leo beauty issue: sun damage 
Leo beauty fix: SPF all day, everyday (even in winter, Lions!) 

Ruled by the Sun, Leo is likely to the first sign to hit the sundeck—and suffer the worst sun damage as a result. This could mean anything from freckles and hormone-related discoloration, to outright raw, burned skin—ouch! Wearing a daily moisturizer with an SPF of at least 20 and taking regular timeouts in the shade are crucial in helping Leo dial it back.

Virgo
Virgo beauty issue: too much makeup
Virgo beauty fix: an inner glow 

The perfectionist of the zodiac, Virgo tends to fixate on how they appear to others, and in our hyper-visual, selfie-obsessed culture, the temptation can be to layer on the cosmetics and conceal any perceived imperfections. But too much of a good thing is … no longer a good thing. Focus on eating right and getting enough sleep to get that glow from within.

Libra 
Libra beauty issue: skin problems 
Libra beauty fix: a water bottle 

As the ruler of the kidneys, the organs responsible for cleaning toxins from the blood, zits and skin rashes could occur when this process isn’t able to be performed efficiently. Since the dawn of time (well, beauty journalism) the number one beauty rule for every sign has been to drink more water—and this applies doubly to you, Libra!
 

Scorpio 
Scorpio beauty issue: skin eruptions 
Scorpio beauty fix: deep breathing

When the Scorpionic depths decide to erupt … this often shows up on the skin. Zits can be hormone-related, too, since Scorpio rules over the reproductive system. Chinese herbs, like Women’s Formula by Dao Labs, could help regulate any imbalances, while a regular meditation practice will help process deep emotions.
 

Sagittarius 
Sagittarius beauty issue: unwanted extra pounds 
Sagittarius beauty fix: a sweat sesh 

Not only does sporty Sagittarius rule the thighs, but since this sign loves to say “yes” to life, this can also mean saying yes to an extra glass of wine or pizza slice. “Yolo” may as well be the Sag motto, and while life most definitely is too short to skimp on the simple pleasures, you can mitigate the effects of any over-indulgences with regular cardio work and sessions in the steam room.

Capricorn 
Capricorn beauty issue: stained teeth
Capricorn beauty fix: a multi-step cleaning routine

Teeth are a symbol of maturity, and it makes sense that they’re ruled by Capricorn—the most grown-up of the signs. Teeth-grinding is a Capricornian trait; and Caps can also use coffee to fuel their steady climb to the top (not to mention red wine to wind down from it each evening), leading to stains if they’re not careful. Religious flossing and trips to the hygienist every six months will help keep things in check.

Aquarius 
Aquarius beauty issue: puffy ankles 
Aquarius beauty fix: long walks 

Aquarians rule over the breath and circulation—yet, with all the time they spend in their heads, circulation-boosting exercise can often be an afterthought. Swollen legs and ankles from long periods sitting at the computer mean you simply must factor regular dance breaks into your day!

Pisces 
Pisces beauty issue: pedi probs 
Pisces beauty fix: comfortable kicks 

Oh, Pisces and your sensitive feet! It’s as if you never got quite comfortable with swapping out your fins, and you’d definitely be happier with your feet constantly in the ocean—meaning too-tight shoes tend to do more damage to you than most signs. A regular pedicure (with time for the extra foot massage) isn’t an indulgence for you—it’s a must.

The Sexiest Jewelry for Every Zodiac Sign

The Sexiest Jewelry for Every Zodiac Sign

The Sexiest Jewelry for Every Zodiac Sign

I’ve never been the kind of girl to mix and match my jewelry. Rather than choose pieces to compliment my outfit each day, when I find something that “fits,” it becomes part of my person. My favorites come and go, evolving over time and serving as talismans and markers of important transitions and phases in my life. 

And of course, this has included many pieces that speak to my love of astrology. What better way to be reminded of my connection to the cosmos, and of my wider path, on the daily? Based on the pieces I’ve loved (and sometimes lost) over the years, here’s a roundup of what I think is the best astro jewelry on the internet. What better way to show off your sign?
As Above So Below by Jessica de Lotz
British designer Jessica collaborated with my lovely friend Louise Androlia on this collection, which has pieces for each sign as well as more general zodiac-themed designs. I also happen to know that Gabby Bernstein is a fan! 

***

Satya Jewelry
A former social worker, Satya launched her collection as a way to give back in a wider sense, and has since donated millions of dollars to children’s charities globally. A big-time lover of astrology, her zodiac pendants also feature the birth stone for each sign.

***

Laura Lee Jewellery
The sun, moon and stars are regular motifs for another UK-based designer, the double Leo Laura Lee. I love her Zodiac wheel coin necklaces and diamond-encrusted pendants for each sign, while an eclipse necklace inscribed with the words “We are all made of stars” is perfect for August 2017! 

***

OpaLand
I adore the teeny tiny opal zodiac pieces in this Etsy store, and they’re also a great price point. The collection includes pretty moon and star pieces, and a Hamsa for protecting against negative energy. Colorful and cute.  

***

Beau and Stella
If you want to get to know what the actual constellation for your sign looks like, then look no further than this New Orleans–based company. The constellation necklaces are delicate talking-point pieces that also offer a visual connection to your place in the cosmos. Can you see your constellation in the night sky?

***

Logan Hollowell
At Logan Hollowell, the constellations of the zodiac get the bling treatment with diamonds or turquoise. The Big Dipper and Ursa Major constellations are also available as earrings, and I love sun and moon Unity necklace from the Many Moons collection. A girl can dream!

***

Asha
An Aries zodiac pendant from Asha was the first piece of astro-themed jewelry I ever owned, and I wore it non-stop for about five years. The mother-of-pearl finish looks elegant and sophisticated and felt like the perfect talisman for that period of my life. 

***

Haute Bauble
Spell out your sign for the world with a zodiac name pendant from Haute Bauble, who specialize in astro jewelry. A forever SATC fan, this would totally be my Aries piece of choice, if I didn’t already wear a “Numinous” name chain—a gift from my husband after I first launched my site. 

***

Which one speaks to you? If you do buy one, Instagram your look and tag me—would love to see how you rock your talisman!

For a Tattoo You’ll Never Regret, Tap Your Zodiac Sign!

For a Tattoo You’ll Never Regret, Tap Your Zodiac Sign!

For a Tattoo You’ll Never Regret, Tap Your Zodiac Sign!

Summer in my local ‘hood of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, is officially tats-out season. As the mercury rises and jeans and long sleeves make way for tanks and micro shorts, my streets become a walking, talking gallery of ink.

If it used to be considered rebellious to get a tattoo, in 2017, the fact that I’ve personally yet to go under the needle (that kind of needle, anyway—me and Botox are a whole different story!) feels positively anti-establishment!

I considered it for a while there, back when I was 18 or so. White tattoos, which would only show up on my Caucasian skin when I had a tan, were a “thing,” and I liked the idea of a design that would only be visible half the time.

After a few weeks of research, I decided on an ornate crayfish design to wrap around my ankle—and thank Goddess I talked myself out of that one! Having a small mollusk inked on my body for life may have been befitting of my Cancer moon sign, but wouldn’t exactly fit with my current look. And for now, at least, I’m happy to be ink-free. But if I’m ever again tempted to get tattooed, I’ll know where to turn for ink-spiration: my sign, of course!

The signs of the zodiac are grouped into three different categories: Cardinal, Fixed, and Mutable. And when it comes to making big decisions and implementing change in our lives (yes, getting a tat totally counts), knowing which group our sign falls into can help us make a choice we’ll love now—and always.

The Zodiac’s Guide to Picking the Perfect Tattoo: 

Note: As always, in matters related to personal appearance, read for your rising sign, too! 


CARDINAL SIGNS: 
Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn
Qualities: Trend-setting, change-making, entrepreneurial; you grow through projecting your feelings, thoughts, and ideas into the world; and you use your will to make things happen.

Tattoo tactics: The urge to get inked may be linked to a big life change, as a way of marking the transition from what has been to all that could be. If this is the case, then consider what you truly want to bring with you into your new incarnation—and what you’re ready to leave behind. Is there also a way to incorporate an intention—a goal or a wish—for your future into the design?

Cardinal signs are inspired by text tattoos.

* * *

FIXED SIGNS: Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius
Qualities: Comfort-loving, determined and resolute; you seek consistency, security and order.

Tattoo tactics: For you, a new tattoo could be a way to imprint a cherished memory or state of being onto your body forever. Tats can be a source of comfort for you, a reminder that some things in life are indeed permanent, even when the outside world appears to be in a constant state of flux. Choose a design that triggers this sense of stability and reminds you that your body is your “home,” no matter where you are in the world.
Love the ocean? A fixed sign’s happy place makes great inkspo. 

* * *

MUTABLE SIGNS: Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces 
Qualities: Accepting and adaptive to external changes; you move quickly from one thing to the next and happily play the chameleon. 

Tattoo tactics: Two words: impulse control. You are likely to be talked into getting a tat because all your friends are doing it—and if you’re not careful, you may find yourself paying a fortune to have it removed a few years down the line. Give yourself at least two weeks to think things over before you commit, and take extra time to find a design that truly speaks to you, perhaps drawing your own symbol, speaking with a respected artist, or drawing upon your zodiac sign’s traits instead of just choosing the first thing you see in a flash book.

Birthflowers, like this May lily, are wise choices for mutable signs.

Use Your Zodiac Sign to Pick Your Perfect Bathing Suit!

Use Your Zodiac Sign to Pick Your Perfect Bathing Suit!

By Ruby Warrington

On July 5, 2017

In Fashion, Style, Summer

Use Your Zodiac Sign to Pick Your Perfect Bathing Suit!

Are you feeling the heat? Whether I have actual beach time on my calendar or not, something about the month of July always gets me fantasizing about days spent drinking watermelon juice, reading a good novel with my toes in the ocean. Which mainly manifests as me trawling the Internet for a new bathing suit. Once upon a time, the mere prospect of swimsuit shopping—online or off—gave me a headache.

But as I’ve grown to understand the power of my sign to guide my big and little life choices, I’ve come to discover that the zodiac holds the key to helping me choose the beach look I love—one that makes me feel amazing in my body. You could also say choosing a bathing suit you feel good in is a form of self love and self care.  After all, I think it serves us well to get comfortable with the body we’re in, and choosing a bathing suit we love is just one way to do that.

Read on to discover the perfect swimwear style for your sign. 

And remember, it’s always worth reading for your rising sign too—since this rules how we present ourselves to the world! 

Aries 
Minimalist “no-fills” looks suit your slightly tomboyish style, and you’ll dig a sporty-yet-glam look like this one from Melissa Odabash. “Baywatch red” is always a good color for Aries babes. 

Sizzle on the sand this summer in a sporty, curve hugging number. Bari Racerback in Red, Melissa Odabash, $252

Taurus 
Your sensual sign loves to flaunt what your mama gave you. Think Marilyn Monroe in full 1950s bombshell mode, and check out vintage styles this season. A high-waisted bottom and cleavage-enhancing top will put you directly in touch with your inner siren.

Flirty and feminine, Bulls will love the retro vibe of AShopZ’s retro bikini set, $19 on Amazon.

Gemini 
You’re all about having some fun in the sun, and the current slogan swimsuit trend was made for you, Gemini! Say, “Yes way, rosé,” or whatever your mantra of the month may be! I love the winky ones from Crowned Queen.

Make a statement without saying a word in a Crowned Queen “Aloha Beaches” suit, $49.

Cancer
Summer days wafting about in caftans are perfect for comfort-loving Cancer. Is there an easier way to get dressed and still feel like a total Goddess? I love the floaty ones from Calypso St. Barth.

A look that effortlessly goes from beach to after hours. Soleil Lili Tunic, Calypso St. Barth, $50.

Leo 
Every day requires wardrobe, right Leo? You’re all about an outfit that projects an Image to the world, whether you’re in full professional mode or out on the sand. The new collection from designer Lisa Marie Fernandez is one I love, and puts the swimming into costume.

These dots will look especially darling in Instas. Lisa Marie Fernandez Sabine Polka Dot Maillot, $450.

Similar: Eternatastic Women’s Retro Polka Dot Tankini, $20 on Amazon.

Virgo
Form and function are of equal importance to you, Virgo, and the less fuss and frill, the better! The chic simplicity of preppy label Solid & Striped will appeal to your less-is-more mindset. Think stripes, solids, and a clean, crisp look that fits in on any beach or pool deck.

Stripes are always in style. Elle Bikini, Solid & Striped, from $61 on Amazon.

Libra 
Your life is your art, Libra, and your beach retreat is no exception! As the curator of the zodiac, you’ll adore the collectable prints and chic shapes of Mara Hoffman’s Summer 2017 swim collection. Choose a suit that makes a style statement and hugs your curves.

Who said one pieces were basic? Mara Hoffman knot front scoop neck one piece, from $98 on Amazon.
 

Scorpio 
Sexy and sophisticated, check and check! You want your beach look to be as elegant and mysterious as you, Scorpio. I love the looks, including off-the-shoulder ruffles, at Midsommer Swim; mixing and matching tops and bottoms can create a signature look that will serve you all season long.

Off the shoulder gets seriously sexy. Tops and bottoms from $85. 

Similar: JIANLANPTT off-the-shoulder swimsuit,  from $14 on Amazon.

Sagittarius 
A woman of the world, your beach look is Boho gypsy meets Amazonian adventurer. You’ll dig the colorful, hand-crafted styles from Turkish-born “world citizen” Ipek Irgit and her label Kiini. Prints and patterns are awesome, and don’t be afraid to mix and match to suit (pun intended) your mood!  

Play with patterns and structure! Tasmin Mono Maillot, $305.

Similar: EA Selection Backless Bandage Bikini, from from $20 on Amazon.

Capricorn 
Cap has a rep for being the most “sensible” sign of the zodiac—but this doesn’t have to mean stuffy. Structural styles can form the foundations of a super sexy beach look, like any from the designer Lonely, who I love.

Black and white is anything but simple and everything about style. Dita Swim Suit in Black and White ZigZag, Lonely, $193. 

Similar: Cocoship High-Waisted Bikini, from $27 on Amazon.

Aquarius 
“Just individual enough” sums up your approach to beach style—you love to stand out, but also to feel like one of the gang. The simple style and pretty quirks at Cami And Jax fit you to a T.

A one-piece that can be a statement piece all summer long. Frieda Tattoo, $250. 

Similar: Ekouer Women’s Vintage Monokini, from $18 on Amazon.

Pisces 
Hello, Mermaid! Beach life is your absolute fave, and of course you wanna dress the part. Get swept away with the modern romance of Irish print designer Carla Johnson’s line, Mona Swims. Cut-outs, swirls, asymmetric patterns—go big and go bold at the beach. 

Pisces adore the water—and love a look that’s memorable on and off the beach. Phoenix Marilyn Swimsuit, $175, Mona Swims.

Similar: Hibelle Women’s Sheer Beach Coverup, from $20 on Amazon.

A Hair Shaman’s Tips for Lovely & Lustrous Locks

A Hair Shaman’s Tips for Lovely & Lustrous Locks

By Ruby Warrington

A Hair Shaman’s Tips for Lovely & Lustrous Locks

Planning my recent trip to L.A., I knew I wanted to fit in a visit with Andi Scarbrough, (aka @crown_works on Instagram)—a “hair shaman” all my friends have been seeing. My hair has always been flimsy, and decades of bleaching and blowing it out have really taken their toll. Not to mention the additional “stress damage” inflicted on my poor locks of late. 
 
Yes, this is apparently a thing, as I learned on the London leg of my book tour. When I stopped by a local salon for a bangs trim, I found myself lamenting to the stylist that my hair was feeling weaker than ever, with large sections where it just seemed to have stopped growing. “Have you been extra stressed lately?” he asked. Uh … just a little. For the past two years, I’ve been writing and promoting a book, while simultaneously running my online magazine, The Numinous, and launching an online spiritual mentoring program as well as a “sober curious” event series. All while grappling with relentless multiple “opportunities” to overcome my fear of public speaking. Apparently, when things get hairy (pun intended), the scalp is often the first place to show it. 
 
Deep conditioning treatments and split-end serums are one thing, but this felt like a job for spirit. I mean, why go the trad route when you can get witchy with it?! And so, cut to a cloudy Sunday morning at the Frame salon in Santa Monica (L.A.’s “June gloom” is also a thing), where I’m settling into Andi’s chair, ready for her to work her magic. 
 
We begin with me choosing a crystal and a card to help guide the session, and continue with a special conditioning treatment using root-stimulating essential oils of rosemary and cedar. Andi uses reiki and sound-tuning forks to stimulate my heart and crown chakras, while also delivering psychic messages about my current state of mind. Dusting the ends with her scissors to close the treatment, I’m handed the offcuts in a little envelope to be burned ceremonially at a time of my choosing. 
 
It’s too soon to tell if the treatment will have any impact on growth, but my hair has been feeling noticeably softer, shinier and more lustrous since the treatment. I’m planning to burn the offcuts to complete the process on the night of the Cancer Full Moon.

 
Do you have thinning or less-than-lustrous hair? Try the hair shaman’s volumizing secrets:
 
The days leading up to (and including) the full moon are the best days for a haircut, as hair grows strongest and thickest during this period of the lunar cycle. Cutting on the full moon itself can be an intentional way to release stress, past trauma, or negative energy.
 
If you cut your hair during any time of transition and/or gratitude, keep the offcuts to make a ceremonial offering marking the occasion. These can be burned, buried, let fly on the wind, or washed away by a river or the ocean.
 
Use the condition of your hair to divine your current state of mind and to practice self-love. “A woman’s opinion of herself shows up in how she cares for her hair,” says Andi Scarbrough.
 
The way you wear your hair can be used to protect and activate the crown chakra (what connects us to our higher self/spirit/universal truth/God/source etc.). For maximum impact—and a connection to that power—pile it on top of your head. 
 
Use a crystal comb—as in a comb made of actual quartz crystal! “Using a crystal comb transforms a regular at-home deep conditioning treatment to beauty ritual—helping to clear your crown and re-energize both your intention and your hair!” says Andi.

Your Zodiac Sign Can Help You Love Your Body. Here’s How

Your body. Pretty awesome, right? I mean, literally where would you be without it? Still, we’re pretty down on our bodies: hating on what we see in the mirror, filling it with toxic food, starving it to a certain size, or working it to the bone without making time to relax. 
 
I know I’ve been guilty of all of the above! I suffered from an eating disorder in my teens, abused alcohol in my 20s and early 30s, and have been a lifelong workaholic, spending hours hunched in front of my computer. But over the past few years, I’ve made it a goal to love my body. I want to show my body the love she needs, and the love she deserves.
 
But knowing how to love your body isn’t easy—and it looks different for everyone. For me, getting into a regular yoga practice has been instrumental in accepting my myself in all my changing states. I’m also mainly sober these days and eat an 80 percent plant-based diet, which helps my body feel more vibrant and energized than ever. Finally, I make a point of saying nice things to my body, and getting regular massages to show her my appreciation!
 
As we move into bikini season, here are some ways each sign can begin to practice body love. And since your rising sign rules your physical appearance, read for that too!
 

If you’re an: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
Fire signs are all about action and can suffer physical burnout, meaning aching limbs, tight, hunched up shoulders, and bruises and scrapes from all that time on the front line of life. Yes, your body is a machine … and it requires regular servicing to keep it running smoothly! Regular bodywork is a must—even a DIY massage counts! Fire signs also tend to be competitive—so set an intention to not compare your body to others.
 

If you’re a: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn 
The earth signs are the most associated with our physicality, and when out of balance can either overindulge or get super regimented about food and exercise. What earth signs are really good at though, is enjoying sensuous pleasure—so taking time to prepare food that’s healthy and delicious is a way to show your body how much you care. Try Jessica Murnane’s One Part Plant recipe book (she’s Taurean Lena Dunham’s nutritionist). 
 

If you’re a: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
Air signs can spend a lot of time in their heads, treating their bodies a bit like an add on. As such, engaging with any practice that helps you get back into your body will be a way to show your appreciation for the precious physical envelope that she is! Yoga, dance practice, and self-pleasure are all great places to start. Air signs can also be over analytical and self critical, so meditation can help you learn to silence the inner body critic.
 

If you’re a: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
So sentimental, water signs! Your emo tendencies can pull you into a negative spiral, with a lot of “coulds” and “shoulds” thrown into the mix as you reminisce about times your bod looked “better” to you. To counter this, think about ways you can literally romance your body—like you would your partner! Yes, I’m talking all out rose petals and scented oils in your bath water, beautiful lingerie and fancy dinners for one. Because you’re so SO worth it!

What’s Your Secret Power Color? Your Body Knows.

What’s Your Secret Power Color? Your Body Knows.

What’s Your Secret Power Color? Your Body Knows.

In “healing” speak, the chakras represent the seven energy centers of the body. Running from the bottom of the tailbone up to the crown of the head, these seven spots are especially key for harnessing our full potential. That’s because our life force energy (some might call it “spirit”) runs through these cosmic portals, “powering up” different organs and, in turn, ruling different areas of our lives. 

Optimum wellbeing is the result of all seven chakras spinning at full speed, while blockages in any area can lead to unease—often showing as emotional issues first, going on to manifest as physical ailments if not addressed.

So, how to get your chakras spinning at top velocity? Since each chakra is represented by a different color, the color of your outfit can help “charge up” the energy center that needs a boost. It’s a genius practice that, as a New York transplant who has most definitely adopted the local tradition of mainly wearing black, isn’t always the easiest to follow. That’s why I often wear just a touch of the chakra power color I need—a canary-yellow bra, a green crystal pendant, hot pink socks….

There’s a total guide to the chakra system in my book, Material Girl, Mystical World, but check out the below tips on how to find the color that will make you feel—and radiate—amazing vibes!

ROOT CHAKRA
Location: Base of the tail bone.
Governs: Our overall sense of safety and material stability.
Connect to it for: An important meeting or interview.
Power color: Red. It’s no wonder this color is traditionally said to bring more confidence to whoever wears it. Even a slick of bright red lipstick can do the trick!

 * * *

SACRAL CHAKRA
Location: Just below the navel.
Governs: Our creativity and sexuality, as well as how we feel about ourselves and others.
Connect to it for: Sexual confidence.
Power color: Orange, like the burning embers of our desire and the flames fanning our creative visions. Try a pretty tangerine balconette bra to harness some flirty energy before a date.

  * * *

SOLAR PLEXUS CHAKRA
Location: Just above the navel.
Governs: Our willpower, self-esteem, and drive to get things done.
Connect to it for: An energy boost.
Power color: Yellow. Yep, just like the Sun, aka the cosmic power charger that literally gets us up in the morning. How about a pair of bright yellow sneakers for your AM sweat session?

  * * *

HEART CHAKRA
Location: Center of the chest.
Governs: Our sense of compassion and unconditional love for ourselves and others.
Connect to it for: Empathy, serenity.
Power color: Green, as a reminder that we’re all bonded by our connection to the natural world. Think gorgeous emerald tones, not the slime seen on YouTube video tutorials!

 * * *

 THROAT CHAKRA
Location: Center of the throat.
Governs: Our ability to express ourselves and communicate with others.
Connect to it for: An important conversation, when you really need to be heard.
Power color: Blue. Perhaps the easiest color to incorporate into your everyday look—faded vintage denim totally counts.

   * * *

 THIRD EYE CHAKRA
Location: Middle of the forehead.
Governs: Our imagination, wisdom, and intuition.
Connect to it for: A creativity boost.
Power color: Indigo. Think deep ocean hues, since this part of our psyche is also ruled by the water element. Bonus: This dark color is a great alternative to head-to-toe black.

 * * *

 CROWN CHAKRA
Location: Top of the head.
Governs: Our higher self and connection to spirit.
Connect to it for: A day filled with creativity and clarity.
Power color: White, which is one of the reasons white is so popular in spiritual circles! Also, it looks amazing for a summer barbeque—a great outfit option for when you know you’ll have a run-in with your ex. This is the color to keep you focused on what you really want in life.

A Crystal a Day Brings Good Vibes To Stay

A Crystal a Day Brings Good Vibes To Stay

My phone feels like a sixth limb, so you’d think I’d embrace wearable tech, right? Wrong. In fact, the very idea makes me feel on the cusp of a mild anxiety attack.
 
But while the idea of attaching a piece of technology to my person makes me cringe, I’m in love with “wearable healing,” aka crystals. I never leave the house without tiny rubies (how could I?) my vintage diamond engagement ring, and an opal piece created by Communion By Joy, one of my favorite designers.
 
You see, while the quartz crystals in computers (you know, the ones that make up the silicon) help you tap into data—how many calories you burned, hours you slept, steps you took—the crystals that make up a gorgeous amethyst pendant help you tap into your inner knowing. The opal I cherish? It’s supposed to inspire love, hope, innocence, and happiness. How could I possibly leave home without it?
 
And while I admit the crystal jewelry scene can get a little crunchy, there are some amazing designers who make creations as chic as they are soul-enriching. Here, some of my favorites that deliver gorgeous fashion right along with heady vibes.
 
Communion by Joy
Describing her pieces as “sacred art for the modern mystic,” L.A.-based Joy Smith is inspired by the mysteries of life “beyond the veil.” My personal favorites are her raw gemstone rings. Also clutch: Her pieces are ethically sourced and made from recycled gold.

Pound Jewelry
So many women in my
Numinous crew  are proud owners of the signature pendulum crystal pendant from Pound, which doubles as a divination tool. Also amazing: their cluster crystal pendants. These have so much energy that they can be used to cleanse other stones simply by leaving a stone that needs clearing on the cluster overnight.

Jill Urwin
With a background in fashion buying, Urwin, who co-founded London’s high-vibe boutique and event space She’s Lost Control is all about merging the edgy, the modern, and the mystical. Her favorite stone to work with is the Herkimer Diamond—known for its unrivaled natural symmetry.

Rock n Raw
While the UK brand is known for its striking and delicate “Ultimate Guardian” pendant, I personally adore the signature crystal-set head-chain (pictured at top, perfect for Burning Man!). Delicate and super high end, the pink tourmaline “Gentle Courage” pendant is pretty close to the top of my wish list!

Alexandra Derby
Featuring different stones for each moon phase, Derby’s unique collections are a beautiful—and powerful—way to connect to the different phases of the moon cycle. She also has a pendant set with each birthstone to correspond to each sign of the zodiac.

Melinda Lee Holm
I adore Melinda’s “Prescription Adornments”—in which she creates a custom piece based on a tarot reading! The two-part process is divided into “Gathering Wisdom” and “Choosing Aesthetics,” making each piece a personalized talisman to tap into your inner powers.

This Stealth Little Ritual Will Attract Abundance

This Stealth Little Ritual Will Attract Abundance

This Stealth Little Ritual Will Attract Abundance

Several years ago, I found myself scouring Shopstyle in search of the perfect wallet. This “perfect wallet” was different than ones I would have looked for in the past: I was looking for one that was red, gold, or green, three colors that would make my wallet a money magnet. I had learned about this theory from my friend Gala Darling, and as an entrepreneur living in expensive NYC, I felt I needed to give it a go.
 
It took another year or so for me to find a red wallet that also fit my personal style—one by Philip Lim that was even embossed with a subtle dollar sign. Flawless! Whether it’s played any role in my never missing a rent check for the past few years, I can’t really say. But what I do know is that a recent Skype meeting with a woman known as The Modern Money Witch (a.k.a. Lara-Rose Duong) took the concept of using your wallet to actively attract cash to a whole new level.
 
And OF COURSE she reached out to me during Venus retrograde. The planet ruling love and abundance has been in a backspin since March 4, 2017 (resuming direct motion on April 15), during which time all things concerning love, money, and self-worth have been up for review. And according to Lara-Rose, love is money. It’s the grown-up symbol for the nurturing (food, shelter, hugs) we receive as love when we’re babies. 
 
Step one in Lara-Rose’s system for receiving more money in your life is to create an actual abundance altar in your wallet. Fun! And what better activity for the April 11 Libra full moon (a sign ruled by Venus), to get active with your manifestation process?
 
Here’s a step-by-step guide to creating an altar in your wallet:
 
1. Take everything out of your wallet and smudge it with smoke from white sage or Palo Santo incense sticks. 
 
2. Hold your empty wallet with both hands and set an intention. Something like: “I am open to receiving abundance so that I may share it with the world,” works. Say it as you hold your wallet. 
 
3. Choose an “altar” in your wallet—it can be an individual pocket or an entire section.
 
4. Place items in your wallet altar. Some classic things to include: an image of Lakshmi, or other abundance icon (I chose a card of prosperity Goddess Abundantia); a piece of citrine, a silver dollar, or an abundance spell, sealed with a pentagon sign. And feel free to choose items that feel meaningful to you, too. 
 
5. Also include a paper money offering to your abundance icon. This bill is not to be spent, but can be refreshed annually on a date that resonates with you (like the Spring or Fall Equinox, Beltane, or your birthday).
 
6. Toss our old receipts, business cards, etc., and return only the items you absolutely need to your wallet. Commit to regularly clearing out any unneeded items to keep energetic pathways of abundance clear.
