Your Love And Professional Prospects Have Real Potential Now That Venus Retrograde Is Over

Congrats on surviving Venus retrograde, chicas. You’re just in time to experience the next planetary back peddle, courtesy of none other than the ever-popular Mercury. With romantic realms getting set straight but communication being thrown off, a lot of you might be seeing stars that aren’t necessarily there and creating your own personal fairy tale in your minds. Some might have found your soulmates while others are just painting it that way in your minds. Whether or not these pretty little bubbles might burst, it’s at least nice to live in them for a moment, right? What fun is real life, anyway?

Aries

Things might seem very confusing this week, Aries, and no, it’s not in your head. A full moon in your communication sector on Friday might have you feeling delusional in love like you are holding on too tightly to something that might just be of your imaginative creation. Just remember to breathe and, instead of wondering if you’re being unrealistic, use that energy to manifest what it is you truly want. If anyone can do it, it’s you, my determined Aries.

Taurus

Money, money, money. If there’s one thing you’re good at having self-control over, it’s that, Taurus. Mercury’s retrograde is only going to highlight your relationship with money, so now is the time to reevaluate, budget and plan out your finances for the future over the next three weeks. This sense of control over your livelihood will only invite more savings into your life and help you gain a further sense of your financial autonomy. You don’t need anyone’s help. You pay your bills all by your damn self, bull.

Gemini

Friday’s full moon in your sign will leave you feeling vulnerable and raw, Gemini, and now that Mercury has also turned retrograde, setting off miscommunication, you may feel like you’re going a little crazy. Use this time to find of the matter in situations and to calm your head a bit before overthinking too many things. Use this time to reflect and focus on the love in your life that helps calm these matters.

Cancer

With Venus retrograde behind you, you’re feeling more comfortable and centered back in your shell, as usual, Cancer. However, you might also find yourself getting too inside your head and not saying what’s really on your mind to a loved one or someone else close to you. Mercury’s retrograde creates a lapse in communication, so you might not feel comfortable talking out a concern that has been bothering you or that your feelings won’t be well-received. This worry is to be expected, but remember that holding things in only makes for a larger explosion in the end.

Leo

You’re feeling completely at home and content with your current love situation, but you may have realized that your financial planning together has left a lot wanting. Perhaps you were unrealistic about some of your goals despite doing your best to calculate your future appropriately. In a time of Mercury retrograde, a way to use this towards your advantage is by reassessing your spending habits and making cuts where needed. You work hard, so make sure you and your money maintain a healthy relationship like the one you have with your partner.

Virgo

Mercury’s retrograde is a time for you remind yourself that, when it comes to your spending habits, focus first on what it is that you need versus what you want. Work might be slow for you right now, but this means you have the time to focus on getting your finances in the spot they need to be. The same will go with your relationship, Virgo. In the past, you’ve felt like you were the one who was always doing the heavy lifting, but your refusal to give up on your love connection pays off this week when all you see is stars in the eyes of your paramour.

Libra

With Venus direct now, you’re ready to put your best foot forward, Libra. Perhaps this a good time for a makeover that makes you feel more empowered and sexy, or gives you the confidence to finally step up about what is making unhappy at work. There’s a strong potential you might have been carrying on with a workplace romance, and for some, this might even mean you’re ready to put this relationship over your career. Think before you act, Libra. Especially during a Mercury retrograde, when it’s not the best time to be making life-changing decisions. Ruminate over your actions for the next three weeks before you potentially self-sabotage.

Scorpio

Mercury may be in retrograde, Scorpio, but with Mars moving through your true love sector this week you won’t even notice. However, you could be so willing to see your prince or princess in anyone you meet that you could be setting yourself up for a dud. While it’s beautiful to believe in true love, trying too hard to find it could open you up for disappointment and delusions. Make sure you’re really choosing the right mate, Scorpio, if not only for you but also for their sake. Remember the strength of that sting you give whenever you feel burned!

Sagittarius

A full moon in your partnership sector this week will highlight the truth of your relationship, Sag. As with your typical Mercury retrograde, something from the past could be rearing its ugly head, and it’s impacting the health of your current relationship. Getting this concern out in the open and having a discussion with your loved one is the only way to move forward and to know if it means it’s time to also leave this relationship in the past. Some time alone might be needed to help guide you to want you truly need for your future.

Capricorn

Mercury retrograde is reminding you to reign in how much you’ve been throwing out there, Cap. Perhaps you’ve been overexerting yourself in the name of career and the universe is telling you to slow your roll and focus on how to better make the most of your time and energy without throwing yourself into every possible situation. The same might also be the case for your love relationship, as you’re willing to overlook certain issues in the name of love. You can’t ignore these forever, even if it helps you feel like you’re living in a fairy tale.

Aquarius

You’re unique and original, Aquarius. We all know this, but do your best to listen to the ideas of others this week as Mercury’s retrograde can affect communication. Are you giving everyone their due attention or forcing more of your brilliant plans? Take the time to make sure someone else gets the mic. When everyone gets a chance to play, better teamwork and creativity abound. As for your romantic world, you might be feeling the true love butterflies this week, my water-bearer. Don’t play games, express how you really feel about this person if you know you’re 100% ready to go all-in.

Pisces

With Mercury retrograde beginning just last week, this is the time to turn off those gadgets and spend quality time reconnecting with the people dearest to you in your life, Pisces. Neptune turns direct in your sign this weekend, helping you see the positive in all situations. Whether that’s good or bad is what you make of it, but remaining uplifting in any situation obviously always has its benefits.

Your Weekly Horoscope For The Week Of December 3rd According To Guacardo

The weight from our final Mercury retrograde of the year lifts on Thursday and, boy, aren’t we glad to leave that notorious backward spin in the dust! As we enter the holiday season and the final month of the year, issues that became hazy during the last three weeks become so clear that a lot of you may be feeling an epiphany. Be that in work, love, or your living situation, prepare to enter the latter half of the first week of December with a wonderfully refreshed outlook!

Aries

From finances to sexuality, your mind is such a jumble this week that you can’t seem to focus on which one is more important or how to go about it. It’s hard to make decisions when Mercury is in retrograde, especially when he’s out there continuously throwing things off as is. Fortunately, that pesky planet turns direct in your sign on Thursday, finally bringing you the clarity to tackle whatever important issues need attention in your life.

Taurus

Paranoia about the way things are going in your life only increases confusion and miscommunication this week. By addressing issues head-on, you can get the clarity you need and have a conversation about your concerns. In terms of your love life, not hashing things out only creates a disaster. Fortunately, this won’t be the case. Worrying only creates more problems, while clear communication this week provides a breath of fresh air between you and your love. Embrace this soulful connection!

Gemini

Expect a glowing, romantic week that’s nothing short of a fairy tale, Gemini! On the 7th, a New Moon in your partnership sector will see a major level up in your personal game of love! Whether that means making it official, moving in together, or tying the knot, you’ll have more sweet bliss than you’ll know what to do with. What a fun problem to have!

Cancer

You might be feeling some trust issues with those closest to you this week, Cancer. Either you’re starting to put two and two together in terms of shady things they’ve done or said (or haven’t said!). You’re right to be skeptical, as it’s a reminder to put your needs first. Is this someone you’re ready to commit to? Your decision-making clears up on Thursday when you’re better able to access the situation and trust your intuition.

Leo

Say hello to your fiery love life, my feisty Leo! On Friday, a New Moon occurs in your love life sector, setting your romance world aflame. Jupiter’s in your corner, the planet of luck, and it feels like nothing could go wrong. The feeling’s right! For those who are single, you might meet “The One” this week, while attached Leos might feel a stronger bond with their special someone. This luck will carry over to your work life as well, so take advantage of any and all opportunities.

Virgo

You’re living in a bit of a fantasy this week, Virgo, as a conjunction between Mars and Neptune in your partnership sector ignites both dreams as well as well your drive to make them happen. You and your partner might get a little extra freaky this week as you explore new things together. Nice! Basically, whatever is on your mind right now, you’ll more than likely be able to make happen. You’ll feel as if you’re actually made of magic!

Libra

You’ve most likely been doing the heavy lifting in more than one situation in your life, and this week you’ll really feel it. The resentment from always having to clean up someone else’s messes who won’t hold themselves accountable for their actions reaches its final straw with you, and you might just combust from the build up. Don’t feel bad about an outburst – you’re the one being taken advantage of. Stand your ground and own up to how you’re feeling so you can either mend it or cut that person out.

Scorpio

Clarity is wonderfully bestowed upon you this week when Mercury turns direct in your sign on Thursday. If you’ve felt misunderstood in any aspects of your life lately, it’s been causing you to retreat into self-doubt and depression. As Mercury allows you to say what’s on your mind, you’ll learn that nothing can get better without speaking your mind. If you don’t, you’ll only continue to stay in that recluse state you’ve put yourself in. 

Sagittarius

A fresh start is in the cards for this week when a New Moon in your sign on Friday connects to Jupiter, showering you with all the luck. Whatever you feel in your heart, follow that desire to watch just about anything you’ve been hoping for come true. Talk about manifesting, Sag! Strike while the iron’s hot!

Capricorn

Are you getting some steamy signals from a platonic friend this week and not sure what to do about it? With Mercury retrograde in your sign and moving through your friendship sector, things might be buzzing off with someone you’ve only considered a pal. Are you reading the situation correctly or is this person really laying on the hints right now? Mercury turns direct in your sign on Thursday, which means you’ll be able to more clearly decide on whatever path you want to take with this situation. 

Aquarius

With Mercury finally turning direct on Thursday, a career decision you’ve been weighing on finally becomes clear. That is to say that we hope you held off on making big choices during Mercury retrograde, Aquarius! Confide in loved ones when it comes to narrowing down your choices, as you’ll find lots of good advice from those close to you. Sometimes you just need an outside perspective in order to make the decision that’s right for you, and, fortunately, this person is very much on your side.  

Pisces

You might unintentionally be finding yourself retrospective this week, Pisces, but if there’s one thing you’re good at, it’s living in your head. You’ll likely put a magnifying glass on your personal life, questioning why you’re really with the person you’ve chosen to commit to. Is it really love or have you let mere physical attraction go further than anticipated? Is this partnership truly grounded? Your passions and feelings ebb and flow on any given day this week and you’re not sure which feeling is the truest. Consider this, though – if you have to question it in the first place, was it right all along? Trust that fishy intuition.

Find The Perfect Wine And Queso Pairing For Your Zodiac Sign

Find The Perfect Wine And Queso Pairing For Your Zodiac Sign

Between red, rosé, white or blends, people’s favorite wine can not only divide them amongst friends but it also says a lot about their personality. If you’ve ever found yourself at the bar wanting to order something fancy but can’t tell apart a Merlot from a Pinot Grig to “what in the world is a Gewurztraminer?!,” look no further than our guide on the best wine for your zodiac sign. Make yourself a winning charcuterie with the perfect cheeses to go with that glass and enjoy a pairing that truly reflects you.

Aries: Apothic Inferno and Smoked Gouda

Aries are known for their fiery and stubborn temperament and impatience, so if you’re an Aries and need to a wind after a long day of being a boss, you like to turn to a red wine. There’s something about that deep devilish color that makes you feel empowered, which is why we love Apothic Inferno Red as the quintessential wine for an intense ram. Aged in whiskey barrels, this wine comes with that extra kick that’s as badass as you are. Pair with a smoked gouda for a flavor that’s as bold as your personality.

Taurus: Red Burgundy and Pistachio and Fig Goat Cheese

Bulls are all about the finer things, which is why you definitely expect no less when it comes to your wine. A red Burgundy from France has your name written all over it, Taurus. It’s refined, delicious, and very expensive — just how you like everything. This Pinot Noir pairs best with a goat cheese, but if you really want your Taurean stamp on it, bougie up that chevre even more by opting for one with fig or pistachio to truly please your rich palette.

Gemini: Moscato and Brie

Twin Geminis thrive on duality, so when it comes to your taste buds, you crave sweet as much as you do salty and savory. The perfect wine for a Gemini is a sweet Moscato, something fruity and still a bit fancy. Noted with apricot, peach, and nectarine, this pairs beautifully with the savory flavors of soft cheeses like goat or brie. A citrusy glass with a bit of chevre? This pairing is as likable as you are.

Cancer: Tempranillo and smoked meats

Strong-willed and clever, Cancers need a wine as strong as their dignity. Reach from your protective little shell for a Tempranillo from Spain, a ruby red wine known for its notes of berries, vanilla, and tobacco. You’re all about creature comforts and this wine will definitely taste like home, which is why we suggest opting for some warm comfort food over traditional cheese pairings for this particular wine. Sip a glass with a bit of lasagna or smoked meats and kick up those precious ‘lil crab legs, Cancer.

Leo: Cabernet Sauvignon and Asiago

Ah, what wine could possibly be suitable for someone as regal as a Leo? You’re a leader, an attention-grabber, and as dignified as they come. A red Bourdeaux Cabernet Sauvignon is you in a bottle, my royal lion! With notes of currant, plum, and cedar, this French wine will have you saying “oui oui oui!” to another glass. Cabs go best with nutty, aged cheese, so pick out a block of some bold aged Asiago or Parmigiano while you watch over your kingdom.

Virgo: Sauvignon Blanc and Goat Cheese

Grounded and reliable, a Virgo expects the same from their wine. Every Virgo should reach for a Sauvignon Blanc if they want something as down-to-earth as themselves. This wine has grassy notes of herb and citrus that are just as balanced as your personality. Nom on some goat cheese and maybe even add some greens like asparagus or zucchini and a plate of oysters for some time to reflect on how you always get things right the first time — just like your vin et fromage!

Libra: Sparkling White and Camembert

For Libras, your wine consumption probably means you love finding any excuse to celebrate with friends. As a very social sign of the zodiac, you view drinking spirits as something done in the festive company of others. For the outgoing people person that you are, nothing says a great night like a fun sparkling white as bubbly as your personality! Since this spirit is dry, a soft and creamy cheese creates the perfect balance in taste and texture, so slice up that brie or camembert and share with friends for a fun and lively evening.

Scorpio: Syrah and Manchego

The tannin-packed dark and sexy flavor of a Syrah is Scorpio in a bottle. Too bad there’s no way you could ever put a cork on your passionate nature, saucy Scorpion! You’d be a fool to think a Scorpio would be seen drinking anything other than a deep red, and nothing matches their personality more than the full-bodied punch of flavor of a Syrah and its peppery aftertaste. Just like your old soul, partake in a nutty aged cheese like a Manchego as you eye everyone who isn’t as cool as you.

Sagittarius: Malbec and Aged Cheddar

For someone as a clear-thinking as my centaur explorers, you need a wine that envigorates that sense of adventure in you. Look no further than the ever-drinkable Malbec from Argentina. With its plush taste and ripe tannins, this smooth red perfectly fits one of your chill nights spent only with a couple of your closest friends, as Sagittarians like to do. Cut up some aged cheddar while you talk about your big picture ideas for the rest of the night!

Capricorn: Cabernet Sauvignon and Aged Cheddar

Practical, ambitious, and wise, the classic Cabernet Sauvignon simply screams ultimate Capricorn. You work hard and need a drink that matches your drive, which is exactly the popular regality of a good, bold cab. Aged, nutty cheeses go best with this type of red, so go for something fun like an aged cheddar with caramelized onion to celebrate your latest achievement you undoubtedly just conquered like the hard-working boss babe you are.

Aquarius: Orange Wine and Gruyer

Aquarians are one of the most offbeat and unpredictable signs of the zodiac. You’re funny, smart, but also a huge humanitarian with a big heart and a socially-responsible outlook at life. For quirky Aquarians, go for something like an orange wine, a skin-contact wine soaked in citrus peels with a bold, nutty flavor. This unconventional wine flavor sums up the water-bearing Aquarius’ individuality and complements with the flavors of something like a gruyere cheese to really stand out from the pack.

Pisces: Rosé and Feta

Sweet, dreamy Pisces, is there any wine that seems more well-matched for your light and earthy persona than the summer Rosé? The popular sunny day spirit of choice is a no-brainer for our sincere Pisces. Just like our last night of the zodiac, Rosé is actually one of the oldest forms of wine and has probably seen as many past lives as you, my fish friend. Pair a glass with some chunks of creamy feta or Havarti to bring out the fruity and floral flavors of the Rosé. It’s sweet and well-liked, just like you!
