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.

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.


When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.


I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.


We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."
