    How Your Partner's Sun Sign Can Help Keep Your Relationship Fresh!
    While relationships need a certain amount of excitement and unpredictability to remain interesting, ongoing traditions are also important to maintain stability. The element of your significant other's Sun sign can offer insight into what types of activities they enjoy most, allowing you to explore ways to not only keep the fire of love alive, but also make it thrive!

    Air signs: Get the Word Out
    Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius like to communicate, so a ritual that involves talking, writing, or anything to do with words will certainly engage them. Air signs need to be mentally stimulated to prevent boredom, so plan activities that keep their mind active.
    Activity ideas: A Saturday night of word games (Scrabble, Boggle, etc.) for just the two of you; a monthly poetry exercise, in which you take turns composing poems about your feelings for each other; attending a poetry jam, or perhaps a book reading featuring one of your favorite authors.

    Mercury Enters Leo: Open-hearted Communication
    Following a long retrograde phase in June, the planet of communication, Mercury, has finally finished its trek through the signs of Gemini and Cancer. On Thursday, July 31, it lands in a new sign at long last -- the loving, open-hearted constellation of Leo. After months of over-analysis and mood swings, you'll be ready to lay your feelings on the table without fear, regret, or passive-aggressiveness.

    If you've struggled to relate to your partner throughout the last few months, it's no wonder. Any Mercury retrograde can cause communication havoc, but these issues become even more intense in Gemini, where it's almost impossible to get people to say what they mean. Before Mercury returned to Gemini on June 17, it spent the first few weeks of its retrograde in Cancer, where it heightened all emotions past the point of no return.

    Staycation Ideas from the Stars
    Getting a break from work and your daily routine doesn't have to involve an expensive trip to some exotic location. A "staycation" -- a short vacation close to home, or even right in your hometown -- is a way to enjoy some fun while not breaking the bank. Use your Sun sign as a guide to plan time off that's nearby, affordable, and ideal for you!

    The perfect Aries staycation is high-energy, fast-paced, and exciting. Try unwinding by taking a rock-climbing trip, visiting a local racetrack, or getting tickets to a major sporting event.

    Earthy Taurus will appreciate a trip that allows them to commune with nature and enjoy the sensual pleasures of life in a leisurely way. Camping, a garden tour, or a day spent touring local wineries will surely make this easygoing sign happy.

    A great staycation for this curious and communicative sign involves plenty of opportunities to acquire new information. Think creatively: A tour of a famous writer's home will

    Use Your Child's Sun Sign to Plan Summer Fun!
    Looking to nurture your child's self-esteem while making this their best summer yet? It's not too late to use your kid's Sun sign to plan some exciting summer activities for them!

    Though Aries children love to be independent, team sports can help these feisty youngsters learn how to play well with others, while still providing them with a healthy dose of competition. Try getting them started on a swim team or another summer sporting activity.

    Taurus kids may simply want to laze away their summer days in front of the TV or computer, but these Earth sign kids will thrive if you kick them out into nature -- even if they resist at first. Start a garden together, or perhaps take them on a short hike to teach them about local flora.

    Gemini kids enjoy learning, though they'll likely enjoy a break from the formal structure of school. Expose them to new experiences, books, and people over the summer, and make sure they have plenty of opportunities to
