There is so much to know about astrology, way more than just your sun sign; Scorpio or Aquarius. Each planet tells us a little bit about ourselves. From our temperament to learning styles to how we like to communicate. Recently I learned how to read a birth chart and have discovered a lot of truth from what it has to say. Let me tell you what all the planets will convey and see if you're interested to find out more about yourself.

About the Sun 

It is our basic personality, identity, ego, and consciousness. It describes how we see ourselves. It indicates how we can best feed our spirit and the unhealthy patterns that we are prone to.

What the Moon tells us 

It represents our inner psyche and emotional nature. Showing us how we actually are. It rules our instincts and vulnerability. It also tells how we receive and support the ones we love.

What the Ascendant tells 

The ascendant is known as the rising sun, comes from the ascendant from the sun to the moon. Tells how others see you. it describes our outermost layer and what people's first impressions of us are. It is an indication of our outer traits and elements of our personalities. Giving an idea of how we show up in our daily lives, how we relate to coworkers, acquaintances, and friends.

What Mercury tells us 

This planet rules the mind, communication, and intellect. Indicating how we speak, learn, write, and reason. It can also show subjects that you are likely to study.

What you'll learn from Jupiter 

It is known for being the most joyful planet. It sheds light on what we will have an abundance of, how we will expand our horizons, what we will have good fortune with, and even our style of humor.

What Saturn shows 

Referred to as the planet of obstacles, responsibility, and ambition. It forces us to grow by handing us adversity. But also proves that the places that we struggle are our gifts, and by overcoming obstacles they become the strengths.

What Mars highlights to us 

Is the embodiment of our physical energy. From how we show aggression to our sexuality. It also reveals things about our drive and temperament.

What Venus tells us 

Rules creativity, femininity, love, and pleasure. It indicates what relationships you'll be drawn to, how you'll manage wealth, and even what aesthetics you'll like. It tells how we like to attract others, how we charm people, and how social we'll be.

What Uranus tells us 

Shines a light on your intuition, energy, and revolution. It is the cause of the great awakenings, that jolt us out of complacency, through sudden change and sometimes chaos.

What Neptune shows us 

Known for spirituality and healing. It helps us connect us to life's invisible layers. It dissolves all boundaries revealing our infinite nature.

What Pluto tells us 

Believe it or not, Pluto is the most powerful planet in astrology. It rules death, rebirth, and transformation. It reflects our struggles, passions, and metamorphoses.

There is so much to learn from astrology. Whether you already believe it in or you think it's bogus I encourage you to look up your birth chart and find out what it has to say. I think most people will be surprised by how spot on the results are and will want to know more. I would recommend using to look up your birth chart and that webpage will tell you the rest.

I received my information from Juliana McCarthy, in her book 'The Stars Within You'.

I began suffering the symptoms of PCOS — acne, fatigue, weight gain, and an irregular cycle — when I was about 16, but I wasn't diagnosed until about nine years later.

The symptoms were, of course, frustrating, but I am now thankful for all of the time I spent trying to manage them naturally with my diet, herbs, and vitamins. Now that I am diagnosed, I do take a small dose of prescribed spironolactone which has helped immensely, mostly with my skin.

However, I have recently become exhausted with the number of comments I get, so I decided to rate all the ones I received in the past month to prove that misogyny is alive and real.

With the pandemic, so many of my friends and I discussed how it was hard to find new things for date night when so many places were closed. It seems like date nights were just endless nights of bingeing Netflix and stuffing my face with Halo Top and SmartSweets. I tried those other date night ideas like cooking together and playing cards. But even those things can get old after a while. Finally, I had it and decided we need to make date nights COUNT again, even if we had to social distance.

Here are 5 different and unique ways you can spice up date night with your partners.

- Since my late teens, I have had wavy, unruly hair that is susceptible to frizz from heat damage.

- I've made a conscious effort to try and eliminate heat styling products from my hair regimen in order to do less damage in the form of split ends and hair loss.

- When I first tried Tineco's MODA ONE Smart Ionic Hair Dryer, I was immediately amazed by how quickly it dried my thick strands and how straight/sleek my hair was with minimal work.

Up to my late teen years, my thick, soft, silky straight hair was the envy of nearly everyone I encountered. I totally took it for granted till my hair began to evolve into being more wavy and unruly with random patches of wavy and straight hair.
