Goals! Goals! Goals!

Winter blues got you down babes? With the holiday season in full swing, it’s time to set your eyes on some goals for your best year yet: 2016. Get your power playlist going to set the ambitious mood for the new year and go get 'em! Shoutout to Refinery29 for the sweet pics and horoscopes!
 
Sagittarius Goals Forecast
Since you hate being bored, you’ve been known to make yourself a little TOO busy. This week, the stress levels could creep up — and that’s no way to spend your birthday season. It might be essential to bow out of a commitment or give yourself a longer timeline for finishing everything up. (Really, would it be the end of the world if you saved a project for January? Probably not.) Another option? Delegating some duties instead of being such a DIY-er. This might require a budget or some spotlight sharing, so make sure that it’s really worth the investment. 

A fantasy-fueled chapter opens up for your love life this Friday, when Venus takes an enchanted three-week voyage through Scorpio and your dreamy 12th house. While you might not have the best boundaries (pass on that third drink at the office’s holiday party) your dropped defenses could give a shyer crush an opening to come and talk to you. For some Archers, this Venus cycle could be bittersweet, forcing you to deal with the fact that you’ve outgrown a relationship. Take a time out if you’re feeling claustro, though. Absence CAN make the heart grow fonder. Venus is also the celestial stylist. This sentimental cycle sends you straight to the vintage aisles. You might even incorporate a piece from your grandmother (or maybe get that cocktail ring she gave you updated into a cool cuff).
Capricorn Goals Forecast
How much is too much, Capricorn? With Wednesday’s quarter moon in your house of expansion, you may realize that you’ve been overshooting the mark. Perhaps you don’t need to add ALL of those bells, whistles, and bling. (Um, are you exhausted yet?) There’s beauty in minimalism, after all, and you can still crush it with a simplified plan. On the flip side, have you been playing it too safe? This lunation nudges you out of your comfort zone. Talk to strangers — especially if they are from another culture, scene, or corner of the world. Those so-called differences could create a real spark!

Your interest in all things unusual heats up further on Friday, when love planet Venus enters your eccentric 11th house. The buttoned-up bankers and baseball-cap-sporting bros just ain’t cuttin’ it for ya between now and the 30th. Pink hair, leather jackets, badass tattoos? Why yes, please. While intriguing people tend to wear their style on their sleeves, be careful not to judge every book by its cover. A beautiful mind is far more compelling than anything during this Venus cycle, so give the geeks a chance, too. Keep swiping right if you’re single, as digital dating gets an extra bump from Venus’ beams. Over the weekend, don’t let worries about what your friends and family will think prevent you from following YOUR dreams and desires. You don’t have to explain, justify, or even share your latest “controversial” move with them. At least wait until you’re feeling a little more confident before bringing them in on it.
Aquarius Goals Forecast
Edgy Aquarius, you don’t suffer fools gladly. In fact, we kind of feel sorry for anyone who steps to you with weak game. With your comedic chops, they won’t come through unscathed. But this Wednesday’s quarter moon sounds the call for (a little more) compassion. You can simply walk away or deliver the death stare instead of going, er, “nutcracker” on ‘em. Rewind and be kind! And are you still feeling guilty for going off earlier this year on someone who’s actually super cool? Extend the olive branch this week. A genuine apology will set you both free.

On Friday, amorous Venus heads into your prestigious 10th house until the 30th, sounding a power-couple alert. Don’t settle for less than Grade-A arm candy this season, even if that means polishing up your adorably boho bae. Dress-up dates will be your thing and you could meet a hot prospect at an invite-only event. This Venus cycle also brings an end-of-year career boost. Socialize strategically, because you could meet your future boss, investor, or business party at a holiday soiree. Careful of the TMI this weekend! Laying too much on the table too soon could scare a good one off.
Pisces Goals Forecast
That hotline bling is going off this week! But you’re in no rush to pick up. With Wednesday’s quarter moon in your house of relationships, you’re assessing what you really want and need from the people in your life. But once you figure it out, don’t expect them to read your mind. From BFFs to bedroom buddies, you’re responsible for vocalizing your needs. Before you bail, summon the courage to communicate. If they’re truly into you, they’ll AT LEAST want to work out a compromise!

Fortunately, Venus swoops in on Friday, helping you with your quest to be more candid. Until December 30, she’ll twerk through Scorpio and your outspoken ninth house. In addition to blurting out the first thing on your mind, this Venus cycle opens you open to a new type — or three. Cross-cultural and long-distance relationships could heat up. If you’re already involved, there couldn’t be a better time for traveling together. Don’t just go home for the holidays, enjoy some “honeymoon” vibes, too. Keep your jealousy in check this weekend! Just because the object of your affections in conversing with someone for more than a few seconds, doesn’t mean you have to hire a PI to find out if they’re cheating. You’re a little too quick to jump to conclusions, though. Get the fact BEFORE you react!
Aries Goals Forecast
Word of the week: streamline. Wednesday’s quarter moon in Virgo sounds the call for a simpler, more systematic approach to everything. If you can’t lifehack it, let someone else help you take it to the finish line. This is the week to delegate, outsource, and even hire some assistance for a few hours here and there. Keep those yoga classes on your calendar, too! It will be tempting to let self-care slide with your busy schedule, but those stress-busting workouts are what keep you calm and productive.

Your inner vixen takes the wheel on Friday, when Venus slinks into Scorpio until December 30. Throw a Yule log on the fire and draw the drapes. With your erotic eighth house activated, there’s fun to be had in the Aries boudoir. But lust and trust must go hand in hand now, since you’re also playing for keeps. Don’t underestimate the strength of your feelings. What seems like an “ain’t no thing” hookup could turn into a month long obsession. So. Not. Worth. It. Watch for power struggles in your closest relationships this weekend, too. Conflicting goals could interrupt the pre-scheduled programming with your BFF or bae. Trying to force your agendas on each other will only make it worse. Take a time out to handle your respective business. Then, regroup next week.
Taurus Goals Forecast
Taking charge or taking over? Easy does it, o’ ambitious one. In your quest to get the job handled, you may have plugged into other people’s power grids, igniting friction and unfriendly sparks. Either that, or you’ve watched other people become incredibly lazy while YOU are verging on overburdened and resentful. With Wednesday’s quarter moon in your leadership house, you may need to dial it back a bit. Though you’re only trying to be helpful, standing down could save an important professional relationship. Focus on what’s truly yours to manage. On the flip side, have you allowed a strong personality to steamroll you at work? Stand up for yourself this week — and let ‘em know you’ve got it covered. If need be, call a meeting to map out the division of duties so you’re not stepping on each other’s toes. And this weekend might be a working one, since you could discover some “Oh, shit!” tasks that fell off your to-do list.
Forget Santa. Cupid comes a-calling this Friday as Venus beams into Scorpio and your relationship house until December 30. A real-deal romance is coming your way, one that can stand the test of time. But it takes two to tango, so do your part to initiate conversations and make it obvious that you’re actually interested. Already spoken for? This Venus cycle can deepen your bond and could bring a key (or ring!) exchange under glow of the tree or menorah.
Gemini Goals Forecast
Keep that velvet rope raised around your girl gang (and sure, the bro nouveaus who have infiltrated the ranks). You’ve been known to turn a stranger into a BFF in 0.2 seconds, Gemini, but how deep is that love...really? Wednesday’s quarter moon in your intimate fourth house wants you to honor your time-tested bonds. If you’ve been shuffling the loyalists to the backburner, brings them up to the hi-pri placement on your list. On the flip side, some Gems may be veering into cliquey terrain. Bust out of that bubble and nurture ties with newer friends — ones who have a good chance of making it into the Gemini Illuminati one day. 
On Friday, give your body some love. Radiant Venus beams through Scorpio and your healthy living zone until the 30th, sounding the call for self-care. It’s not that you have to pass on every gingerbread house, latte, or cocktail, but keep things balanced with nourishing meals and regular physical activity. Since Venus rules love, take a more practical approach in December. You could even turn your bedroom buddy into your gym buddy — those sexy endorphins only make the bedroom, uh, Iron Man that much hotter. Over the weekend, beware the player in sheep’s clothing! A signal-scrambling mashup of Mars and Pluto could make it easy to mistake a hookup for a genuine bid for your love. If you doubt someone’s intentions, make ‘em wait. Anyone who truly wants you will work for it — and should.
Cancer Goals Forecast
If you see something, say something — but choose your words wisely. Wednesday’s quarter moon in your communication house calls for a more balanced way of expressing yourself. Holding in your feelings will only lead to resentment. But pointing fingers in the heat of the moment could lead to a coup. Speaking in the first person (as a opposed to the accusatory “you!”) can make a major difference. For example, “I want to spend more time together” goes down a lot smoother than, “You never make time for me anymore!” Get it?

Ready for a romantic December? On Friday, love planet Venus pulses into Scorpio and your passionate fifth house until the 30th, turning up the heat. Someone could literally sweep you off your stilettos — or this bold transit could inspire YOU to take the lead in love. Coupled Cancers could wind up talking about big topics, like hunting for a one-bedroom apartment together or going ring shopping. (Again, don’t be shy about initiating such talks.) Follow your heart instead of letting friends and family have the final say. This weekend, their “helpful feedback” could derail your devotion and do damage to your relationship. It’s nobody’s business but your own!
Leo Goals Forecast
What do you consider valuable, Leo? From consciously mined diamonds to the unbreakable bonds of friendship, you get to set the standards in your life. Forget keeping up with the Joneses, Kardashians, or those kids in Buckingham Palace. This week’s quarter moon reminds you to live by your own truths. For many Leos, that may mean stepping down materialistic pressure you’ve been putting on yourself. It goes without saying that money doesn’t make anyone a better person. This week, you could meet an inspiring soul who reminds you that it’s what’s inside that counts. Be careful about getting into ethical debate, though — especially this weekend, when hotheaded Mars and Pluto clash. Beliefs are a personal thing. You may have to agree to disagree if you want to keep certain people in your life.
Start taking applications for your girl gang, too! On Friday, friendly Venus heads into Scorpio and your feminine fourth house until December 30. Some incredible new GFs could enter your world before 2015 is through. Already found your sister squad? Pop on the entertainment director’s hat and get some big plans on the calendar for the holiday season. Venus rules love, so the next few weeks could bring some epic nesting. You could even meet your match through the introduction of a female friend — or, yes, that nice guy or girl your MOM keeps telling you to meet!
Virgo Goals Forecast
Who do you think you are, Virgo? Your identity’s been shifting ever since expansive Jupiter moved into your sign for a year this past August 11. But as you grow and change, are you also rejecting important parts of your past? On Wednesday, a quarter moon in Virgo reminds you not to throw out the baby with the bathwater. Some aspects of the old you are worth hanging on to and reintegrating. Conversely, if you’ve been afraid to step into your truth, this quarter moon helps you come out of the proverbial closet and live freely as the person you’re evolving into.
Friday arrives with a code orange flirt alert. Venus, the cosmic coquette, zips into Scorpio and your game-spitting third house until the 30th. You’ll have them at hello, Virgo — but you might not want to keep them there for long. Turn on your charms selectively. (Read: don’t get too drunk with the hot-but-way-too-young intern at the office holiday party.) This Venus phase brings excitement to your social circle, too. Branch out and mingle in a new scene, because you could meet some kindred spirits before the month is through. Weekend alert: Before you go batting your lashes, check for wedding bands and ask what seems like a too obvious question: Are you seeing anyone?
Libra Goals Forecast
Romantic or romanticizing? This Wednesday’s quarter moon in Virgo and your dreamy 12th house puts a bookmark in the fairy tale. Give yourself a little reality check. Are you applying a soft-focus filter over a harsh reality? You don’t have to bolt on people or situations just because they aren’t “perfect.” But you DO need to vocalize boundaries, especially with people who have been sketchy about keeping their word. When you set limits, they’ll either straighten up and fly right or show you what they’re really all about. Better to know the truth than labor in delusion.

Your weekend is off to a sensual start! On Friday, love planet Venus slips into Scorpio, starting a slow-burning fire in your scintillating second house. Cue the Adele, kick up your marabou slippers, and relax behind closed door with the one you adore. Screw the peacocks and swaggering badasses. The boy- or girl-next-door type could win your heart — yes, even if you labeled them “a little boring” last week. This Venus cycle whets your appetite for the finer things in life. Make a budget for an investment piece or two, but go easy on the retail therapy splurges. Warning for the weekend: Do not engage with the drama queens, especially the ones who share your DNA.
Scorpio Goals Forecast
Set it off, Scorpio! Wednesday’s quarter moon in your social networking house calls you out of your private little cave and back onto the scene. It’s not that you should give up ALL of your “me time,” (Your cat wouldn’t have it!) but your squad is missing you, so make a point of making plans and getting out more often. You might even don the entertainment director’s fedora and organize a few group outings: that ski house rental or a group rate block of tickets to see a hip-hop remastering of The Nutcracker at the local theater. You’ve always been the one to find those gems. Do you need to do a little squad sorting? If you’ve outgrown certain friends, you don’t have to keep inviting them everywhere out of obligation. Taking a breather can be a good thing, especially if it creates space for some new blood.

Friday brings THE best news of the week! Passionate, radiant Venus makes her annual stopover to Scorpio until the 30th, amping up your charm and irresistibility. You’re the hottest thing in town (#ScorpioOnFire) and will attract a ton of interest. But hang on to your single status for a minute, because this sultry phase will be fun for dabbling and hooking up. Already spoken for? Give yourself a longer leash. You at least need permission to flirt without crossing lines. But this weekend, don’t push it too far. You’ll be attracted to the “excitement” of blurred lines and temptation, but stopping that runaway train could be a lot harder than hopping on it!

    Apple unveils new iPhone 6S

    It is that time of year again! Apple has just recently launched a new model of the iPhone 6, aptly call the “6S”. So what does this mean? The difference is more internal than external, so all your favorite iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus cases from Zero Gravity will remain the same.

    Externally the new iPhone comes in rose gold which is a chic deviation from the classic gold and silver. To prevent “Bendgate” II they have enforced the exterior shell with a stronger aluminum-zinc alloy and gone ahead and changed the glass to the “most durable yet”. The biggest change is the addition of 3D Touch, a new pressure-sensitive interface that senses the difference between your taps, normal presses, and firm presses. It’s basically the iPhone’s version of a right-click. Add in a new higher resolution camera, their new feature Live Photos to animate your coolest still images and you end up with an amazing upgrade to the iPhones that we have all come to love and depend on (maybe a little too much).

    All changes aside, one thing is still the same: the entry-level version of the new S is 16GB. Defiantly something to think about, given that they shoot at a much higher resolution, have 4K Video and the new tricks they do with the Live Photo feature. Storage is always essential and it may be better to steer toward the 64GB and 128GB version.

    Gotta have one? No problem! You can preorder beginning this Saturday the 12 and Apple says they”ll ship by September 25.

    Confessions of a Bad Ass Babe: Tuesday Bassen

    Inspired by go-getters and badass babes in general, this series is basically me spending time with women who built and followed their own yellow brick road (and then re-painted it the color they wanted when it was finished). From how they're Buffy the Vampire slaying it, to who they've been double-tapping on instagram. I get to the bottom of how they became the badass babes they are today.

    As my last #Confessionsofabadassbabe post here on ZGLA.com (*tear*), I def. had to hang with the raddest babe in town >> Miss Tuesday Bassen. This bi-coastal phenomenon just hit home in LA and is splattering the town with her amazing illustrations. Besides having the same birthdays (no big deal on the rad meter), Tuesday is the definition of a badass babe. From her cute and sassy characters to her must needed patches and pins, Tuesday oozes raw talent. Her "Ugly Girl Gang" zine is what  initially drew me in, her bad attitude babes exude confidence with the perfect don't mess with me stance. After proudly swiping my credit card for a few of her goodies at a pop-up in LA, I knew I had to sit down with her and pick her badass brain. Read below our convo, and be sure to heart eyes times a million on her 4-legged side kick.

    For more heart eyes head to her instagram >> @TuesdayBassen to keep up with her goods (gotta have them ALL) and daily drawings (NEED to see them ALL) <3

    When did you start being awesome aka being an Illustrator? What inspired you to pursue illustration as a full-time career?

    Ha! I think you’re being generous. Early on, I thought that I wanted to study foreign relations. I took both French and German, served as Captain of the debate team, and studied abroad in Russia by the time I was 14. I started at a public art school by 15 and all other aspirations went out the window. I got my BFA from MCAD in 2011 and have been a professional illustrator since.

    Being a freelance artist, what is your daily schedule like?
    I try to maintain some level of spontaneity to keep things interesting, but ultimately I bounce between working at home and running errands around Los Angeles.
    Usually, it goes a little something like this:
    Wake up at my boyfriend Ben’s house, walk our wiener dogs, grab a coffee at Cafe de Leche, answer some emails while traffic dies down, go home to Mid City and ship any orders that piled up overnight, drink too much coffee, work on client projects, shower around 3, drop stock off at local stores (like my favorite, Pygmy Hippo), meet up with a client about a collaboration over a drink, go home and either work more or plan a new project with Tiny Splendor—who are both my roommates and my printers. 
    I try to surround myself with other creatives so that working becomes downtime and downtime sparks more projects. My boyfriend is an art director and chainstitch embroiderer, so we end up collaborating a lot without trying very hard. 

     

    Looks like you always have amazing ideas for new projects. Where do you find inspiration?

    I honestly feel most inspired when I’m angry. I definitely hulk out in my sketchbook and end up cracking myself up!
    Your female characters are all bad ass and they seem to all carry their own individual attitudes, did any of these characters develop from personal friends or people you’ve met?
    I usually just draw them from my imagination, but there are a few people that make frequent appearances. My friend Jillian Newman, for example, is definitely my muse. She’s a foul mouthed and bodacious native New Yorker that I met at age 16 in a pre-college program.

     

    Can you share some female artists that are currently blowing your mind?

    Louise Z Pomeroy aka @louisezerg
    Jemma Jones aka @wolfspit
    Megan Campagnolo aka @rosehoundapparel

     

    When you put down the ink and paper, where do like to hang/chill in LA?

    Something I love about LA is that each neighborhood is like it’s own universe. I try not to repeat destinations too often, but I love popping into Pygmy Hippo to shoot the shit with Emi and snacking with friends at Swingers because every lady (especially Barbara, what’s up giiiiirl) that works there is such a badass friendly babe. For drinks, I hit up dive bars with photo booths, because I’m all about cheap thrills. 

    Most used iPhone app?

    Instagram, of course.

     

    Looks like you have a 4-legged buddy, who is he and how awesome is he?!

    GUS! He’s pretty great. I got him through Southern California Dachshund Rescue and he is stuck to me like a googly eyed cartoon always. I also have a half blind cat with three teeth named Mischka who is pretty sweet, but Gus is always with me and therefore gets photographed more often.

     

    Give us 3 essentials that Tuesday needs on the daily?

    I have a new dress by Osei Duro from Myrtle that I love, Coconut Rose MSM lotion by SunFood, and lots of coffee. 

     

    Are there other creative activities you wish to try in the near future?

    I’ve already delved into the world of shitty stick n’ pokes, but I think neon bending would be fun! 

     

    Name TWO truths and ONE lie about you (In random order so we can guess and most likely guess wrong).

    My real name isn’t Tuesday, my favorite snack is raw cashews, I have an extra tooth. 

     

    What’s next for Tuesday Bassen, anything cool you can share OR secret stuff your willing to spill beans on?

    A few super secret things, but I also have a line coming out with Valley Cruise and a pop up at Madewell, so keep your eyes peeled.

     Stay tuned for where #Confessionsofabadassbabe lands next and K.I.T at: 
    @Eatherbrains
    Till next time ladies and gents....keep being badass!

    What's LOVE got to do with it? EVERYTHING!

    Your June forecast is here and we're talking about that 4-letter word L-O-V-E! Because let's be honest, it's "summer fling" season and we need to know whether to leave our heart at home or not. So read this with caution or with full on heart eyes, either way this will keep your eyes peeled for Cupid.

    Horoscopes + photo via the babes from Refinery 29.

    Gemini Love Forecast

    As much as you love to be part of a perfect pairing, you’ll need more “me time” this June as your independent spirit is called forward. But, absence can indeed make the heart grow fonder — and the affection hotter. As you cultivate your separate interests, you’ll bring intriguing topics of discussion to your dates and mates. Be careful not to create too much distance though, especially while Mercury is in retrograde until the 11th.

    At the beginning of the month, a full moon lights up your partnership house and ensures that you don’t push true love away. Your heart will be wide open, and you could manifest someone who wants to go the distance with you. An existing connection could get a new title, too — more like “In A Relationship” than “It’s Complicated” (phew). Strict Saturn gives you some reprieve when it moves out of your partnership house from June 14 to September 17. You’ll feel like your flirty, lighthearted self again, so it’s fitting that Venus will be in your curious, experimental third house from the 5th on. Go ahead and taste the rainbow of options out there. Digital dating brings a higher click-through rate in June, too. Right swipe away! Although the peacocks and players will turn your head early this month, you’ll be ready to give the nice ones a chance after the 22nd. What seemed boring earlier in the month could be sheer heaven later on. Who wants to cuddle under the AC?

    Cancer Love Forecast

    Let it go, let it go. June’s star map sounds the call for surrender. Relax, Cancer, we aren’t suggesting you dump the love of your life or walk away from a promising prospect, but maybe you’d benefit by not holding on quite so tightly. See what happens if you create a little more breathing room with your boo. Get back into your own creative passions, start meditating, or take guitar lessons. Grounding in your own self-worth is the antidote to the insecurity that inevitably bubbles up when a sensitive soul like you falls in love. Plus, being a teensy bit out of reach makes you a hundred times more desirable.

    As for that negligent lover who failed to call after your awesome third date (the one that turned into an extended sleepover)? If you haven’t made amends by the new moon on the 11th, shut the door for good. A bonfire burning of the Black Keys shirt he left at your place wouldn’t hurt either — a jilted Capricorn friend may happily help you heap fuel on that fire. Saturn slips back into your romance house from June 14 to September 17. You’ll be far more discerning about who and what you’ll accept in love. You’ve learned your lessons over the years, and you won’t be making the same mistakes again. This Saturn phase could bring a solid commitment, proposal, or even a pregnancy. Or, you may be attracted to someone a little older or more mature than your usual type. Then, the heat turns up big time at the month’s end. On the 22nd, the brilliant sun enters Cancer, followed by lusty Mars. The six weeks that follow will find you totally in demand. Take the lead in love, and be more assertive about making your fantasies come true.

    Leo Love Forecast

    Get out and mingle! With a star-powered stack-up in your social 11th house, you won’t have any trouble meeting interesting people this June. So, why not find someone who shares one of your passions or interests? Group participation can bring the bonus of a love connection before the 22nd. You could meet your match through mutual friends this month, too, or reconnect with an old pal only to discover that your bond is far more than platonic this time around. The 11th house is on the tech sector of the chart, so fire up your dating apps and do some right-swiping. Amorous Venus will cruise through Leo from the 5th on, so you’ll be quite in demand. With your magnetism off the charts, clean house of anyone who doesn’t appreciate full-volume Leo. You might even take a short dating hiatus (a few days or weeks even) to regain your connection to numero uno. There’s nothing like being in love with yourself to attract a high-quality selection of admirers. Luck is on your side.

    The full moon at the beginning of the month could bring a passionate connection with someone new — or an exhilarating milestone with the one you adore. This full moon falls in your fertile fifth house and could herald a pregnancy. (Double-protect all month if you’re not ready for cradle rocking.) It could also be the moment where you finally fess up to feeling the l-o-v-e. Already spoken for? It takes a village to make a relationship work — provided you have the right people on your team. This month, think about whether your friends are supportive or disruptive to the harmony of your love life. Create some space from people who are always making you second-guess your decision to commit.

     

    Virgo Love Forecast

    Newsflash, Virgo: Organizing your dates into a spreadsheet and ranking system isn’t exactly sexy. But, you’ll be feeling rather goal-oriented about affairs of the heart this June, so you might actually go there. (Hey, whatever makes the agonizing process easier…) Getting clear about your longer-term desires would be a smart move. With the sun, Mercury, and Mars in your traditional 10th house, you’re advised to aim high. Someone you considered uptight or too mature a while back could actually be just what the love doctor ordered this month. You’ll be attracted to the power players, too — and a suit-and-tie type might just sweep you off your stilettos near the new moon on the 11th.

    If you’re in a relationship, you could start a business with your sweetie or earn your reputation as the enviable power couple in your circle. Be fair warned: Talks could grow serious in June — maybe too much so. If you find yourself getting dragged down by those “Where are the two of us heading?” inquiries, take a break and do something spontaneous. You, too, can spiral out too far into the future. There’s no point in arguing over baby names if you aren’t enjoying each other’s company right here, right now. Slow down, and let things happen in due time.

    Libra Love Forecast

    Think you have a type, Libra? Guess again. June’s star map is sure to broaden your horizons, proving that you can’t judge a book by its cover. With planets in your global ninth house for much of the month, you could fall head over Dr. Martens for a cutie from another culture. Signed up for summer school? A workshop or seminar could unearth a brainy hottie who loves a good intellectual chat as much as you do. Now’s also the time to post some new pics to your online profile — Venus will tour your tech sector from the 5th on, bringing some promising prospects from the digital realm.

    This is the month for a couple’s getaway, so if you’re already spoken for, reserve that double room and get your passports out of storage. One caveat: You might want to wait until Mercury snaps out of retrograde on the 11th to take your sexy sojourn. Whether on vacay or in your home city, get out and socialize more as a pair. This is a fabulous month to co-host a soiree and introduce all your friends to one another. The sun and motivator Mars move into your traditional 10th house for the last week of June. Have “the talk” about your shared future — or ditch the players and save your final rose for someone who can actually go the distance.

    Scorpio Love Forecast

    Now they see you, now they don’t. With an assembly of stars in your enigmatic eighth house, your mysterious allure is fully deployed. You’re down for the cat-and-mouse games and the drawn-out seductive dance, just don’t be so hard to get that the pursuer gets thrown off your trail. While you’re at it, keep your radar on for power players — a sexy suit could enchant you after the 5th. Truthfully, you’re also jonesing for an intense and passionate connection. But, you’ll need your alone time in between the proverbial “Red Room” romps, thanks to stoic Saturn’s retreat to Scorpio from June 14 to September 17. A little extreme? Yes, but ‘tis the Scorpio way. Be honest about wanting time to focus on numero uno, so your love doesn’t think you’ve pulled a disappearing act.

    Coupled Scorpios could feel that urge to merge in more meaningful ways. When Mercury ends its retrograde on the 11th, ring shopping or apartment hunting plans could be underway. The last week of June will be much lighter as the sun and Mars head into your jet-setting ninth house. Book the couple’s getaway or take your sexy single self to a festival, glamp-out, or far-flung city full of attractive strangers.

    Sagittarius Love Forecast

    Feel like you keep taking two steps forward, one step back? With communication planet Mercury in retrograde in your relationship house until the 11th, June could be off to a confusing start. Ride the wave, Sagittarius, and expect a series of highs and lows. If you stay steady — despite your love interest’s wavering desires and needs — you’ll come through with your heart (and relationship) intact. Don’t spend early June obsessively checking for you-know-who’s texts! With the annual full moon in Sagittarius lighting up the skies, it’s time to pursue your solo passions and interests. Absence most definitely will make the heart grow fonder.

    You’re attracted to a wide spectrum of types this month, and with Venus nearby, a cross-cultural romance will simmer with extra spice. Vacationing could bring a bonus perk of romance — don’t rule out the long-distance relationship. After the 24th, the sun and Mars connect in your playing-for-keeps eighth house. If you’re not exclusive (or even putting a ring on it) by then, you’ll be ready to deliver the ultimatum, “Commit to me, or I’m moving on.”

    Gym buddy by day, bedroom buddy by night. With a posse of planets assembled in your well-being sector this June, you’re taking “healthy relationship” to a whole new level. Sharing morning smoothies, TRX workouts, and, er, Iron Mans between the sheets will certainly ignite your lit-from-within glow. Just be careful not to overschedule your sweetie or get super rigid about time. Spontaneity is the essence of romance, after all. Single Caps could feel the sparks with the cutie on the adjacent elliptical. Keep those earbuds cranked to a respectable volume so as not to miss that opening line.

    Capricorn Love Forecast

    Is the ghost of a lover past still haunting you? The full moon at the beginning of the month helps you mourn and release. You might even do a ceremonial purging under this moon. Gather up those birthday gifts, photos, and tattered tees (that still smell faintly of Acqua Di Parma), and let them be the tinder for a beach bonfire. Attracting new love — or stirring up the magic with your amour du jour — will be a snap as Venus slips into your sexy, magnetic eighth house from June 5 on. Keep those little black dresses at the front of your closet, and treat yourself to some new lingerie. This Venus phase makes you a total night owl. Coupled Caps, get your post-workout disco naps in so you can enjoy evenings out, too. The sun and passionate Mars will both be in your relationship sector at the beginning of the month, and things could get serious. Save the talks about the future until June’s final quarter, though — you’ll have a clearer idea of what you want from relationships.

    Aquarius Love Forecast

    Cupid is most definitely in your corner this June, as the sun, lusty Mars, flirty Mercury, and a new moon all ping your fifth house of true love. Let your low-key, “it’s all good” MO fly out the window. Your desires are bolder and more complex this month — and that’s a good thing. Besides, if anyone could afford to be a little more diva-like, it’s you. Spell out your wishes, both in and out of the bedroom. When you’re clear about your wants and needs, you have a far better chance of getting them met. The new moon on June 11 could bring a promising prospect — or a blast from the past. Mercury will be in retrograde until that same day, which might just lure an old flame back into your orbit. Don’t rush to reconcile or be too quick to say no. Give yourself until the month’s end to see how it all pans out.

    June’s stars could also bring a rush of baby fever, even a pregnancy if you’re ready to rock the cradle. Ardent Venus camps out in your commitment zone from the 5th on, so make sure anyone you open your heart to is looking for something more than a spicy summer fling. With stern Saturn slipping back into your ambitious 10th house from June 14 to September 17, finding the balance between work and love could get dicey. And, while you love a big project, if it causes stress in your personal life, scale back, or save it until you’re more prepared to handle the time and expense required. On the 24th, capricious Jupiter forms a lucky triangle with your ruling planet, unconventional Uranus. The element of surprise will work in your favor, so do something unexpected to woo your boo.

     Pisces Love Forecast

    Let’s hear it for your girls! This June, having a solid sisterly crew could be the very best thing for your love life. Find the Bella to your Gigi or the Marnie to your Hannah. Your friends will bolster your confidence, keep you in the reality zone, and provide a welcome distraction when you start obsessing over your latest crush or romantic drama. In between girls’ nights out, you could be prepping for your first home visit with your latest love interest or even scoping out apartments for your future cohabitation station. If you’re single, give the nice guys a shot this month. Also, consider creating a blank space in your home to attract a mate. Leave a few empty hangers in the closet and even work a little feng shui magic. Make sure your bed is accessible from both sides, and place pairs of objects around your home to symbolize the power of two.

    Meeting the parents could go really well after Mercury ends its retrograde on the 11th. The sun and red-hot Mars zip into your flamboyant fifth house in the last quarter of June, ensuring that your nurturing nature doesn’t take you from hot mama to mommy dearest. Kick off the flip-flops, slip on the Loubs, and go enjoy some sultry date nights on the town. Single Pisces, expect to meet your mate at an upscale event, party, or concert after the 24th.

    Aries Love Forecast

    Flirt alert! You want to be noticed this June, and you’re willing to make the extra effort in the name of turning heads. Venus spends most of the month in Leo and your fifth house of passion, glamour, and flamboyant style. Dress up and paint the town crimson — whether you’re stepping out solo or with some enviable arm candy. The full moon at the beginning of the month could bring a cross-cultural click or a vacation romance for rams on summer holiday, so keep your ears perked for sexy accents. But, beware: Attracting admirers is the easy part this June. Figuring out which one you like best, however, may leave you feeling like the bachelorette at her first rose ceremony. On the 14th, serious Saturn backs into Scorpio and your playing-for-keeps eighth house. You could have misgivings about a 2014 breakup or not giving a good prospect a chance. Extend the olive branch, and see what can be done to repair the rift.

    In a relationship? That doesn’t mean you have to dim your bright lights. Witty banter with handsome strangers makes you feel attractive — and you can bring that mojo back home to enjoy with your mate. This three-month Saturn cycle could bring up some pretty deep discussions with your S.O. about what the future holds. Everything from your romantic fantasies to how you divide the household bills will be on the table. Bottom line: Lust and trust must go hand in hand after the 14th. From the 22nd on, your nesting instincts will come out in full force. Start shopping around for that cute two-bedroom or summer share with your boo. Single Aries, invite your crush for a home-cooked dinner, and watch the romance bloom.

    Taurus Love Forecast 

    June is off to a sultry and intense start for you, Taurus, as a full moon in your eighth house of permabonding brings a relationship to a make-it-or-break-it point. There’s no room for gray here (unless it’s the Fifty Shades variety). Decide for yourself or deliver an ultimatum: Are you in or are you out? The full moon may also herald a more exclusive label for casual connections or a marriage proposal for the coupled Taurus. Follow your urge to merge — or your intuition’s SOS cry to bounce from a bad romance. Thankfully, the rest of the month won’t be so extreme. With a cluster of planets in your grounded second house, you’ll enjoy some delicious courtship rituals and clear signals from the one you adore. Set your Spotify to a slow-jam station — holding hands and cuddling on the couch can be a totally sensual experience. If that pace is too agonizing, don’t worry. It’ll pick up when Mercury ends its retrograde on the 11th.

    Coupled bulls will find themselves stressing over money matters early this month. Keep things fair with clear spending agreements, and make sure you aren’t living beyond your shared means. Meanwhile, structure-hound Saturn slips back into your partnership house from June 14 until September 17, making you a lot more serious about the parameters of love. A recurring issue — the one you always seem to fight about — demands real solutions this time. Figuring out a compromise doesn’t necessarily mean splitting things 50/50. Sure, you need your relationship to be fair, but play to your individual strengths, and consider outsourcing some of the things you both hate doing. In the last quarter of June, your flirty nature will come out full force. Whether you’re planning adventurous playdates or Tinder-ing away, variety will be the spice of your love life.

    Confession Of A Bad Ass Babe: Amy Pham

    Inspired by go-getters and badass babes in general, this series is basically me spending time with women who built and followed their own yellow brick road (and then re-painted it the color they wanted when it was finished). From how they're Buffy the Vampire slaying it, to who they've been double-tapping on instagram. I get to the bottom of how they became the badass babes they are today.

    This week we caught up with a triple threat of a babe. A born and raised LA native who is a total slashie: DJ/Model/Host! You might know her from hosting the fashionably savy Youtube series, "The Platform". Yup, we're talking about Amy Pham! We literally had to throw out a bat signal (since she was in London at the time) to get this babe to chill with us for a moment and answer some must-needed questions. Check out what she's currently obsessing with and more below. (PS. If you want to see some behind the scenes of her daily life, including her hilarious videos then follow her on instagram @IAMAMYPHAM - No lie, she got jokes!)

     

    You’re literally a triple threat: DJ/Model/Host, what came first? And is there a favorite from the three?
    Why thank you! I just consider myself to be very indecisive. DJ came first and was pretty much the jumping point for everything else. My brother initially taught me and after making a lot of friends in the nightlife scene through DJing, I was asked to model for some local brands. That led to getting signed, going out on auditions, and one of those auditions happened to be for Disney's Maker Studios. I guess they didn't hate me so here I am, host of their fashion show "The Fashion Statement" almost 4 years later!
    After a long working day, where do you go (or what do you do) to unwind?
    HOME. I am a huge homebody, so I need to have a base where I can decompress, change into PJ's asap, and completely veg out. Snuggles are definitely a must in this department.

    You know in movies when girls walk into a party (think Can't Hardly Wait, Jennifer Lawrence), what song would be your party entrance song?
    For some reason my first inclination was to say "Gwen Stefani - Hey Baby" without hesitation. But my second choice would probably be anything by Beyonce.

    You travel a ton, where in the world have you not yet touched and are dying to go?
    Asia! Especially Vietnam, the motherland. I haven't been yet but have been told numerous times I need to.

    Which leads me to this question: You’re stranded on a desert island, who would you need with you to survive?
    My boyfriend Anthony, duh! 

    3 emojis that best describe you?

    If you had to choose ONLY one, what social media app would you commit to for life?
    Instagram!

    We all got that THING we can't stop talking about, what's your current obsession/thing you can't stop talking about?   
    I LOVE CHIMICHURRI SAUCE. I've recently discovered it and it's the best thing ever. I put it on my chicken, my eggs, my rice, literally everything.

    Favorite LA hang out for a girls night out?
    I haven't gone out in SO long, I'm usually either working/ DJing/ sleeping. But I know my girl Sam (SoSuperSam) throws a helluva night at 143 (Los Globos) and I've been meaning to go for a while. 

    Zero Gravity is all about elevating your look, what's your favorite accessory?
    I love hats. Hats on me, on my boyfriend, I'm a big hat person (especially headscarves for summer and beanies for winter)

    Working long days could be brutal without some power snacks/food, what would you have delivered to you daily (from anywhere – even flown out) if you could?
    QUEST BARS. They're the best protein bars ever and anytime I'm running around town or traveling, I absolutely make sure that I have at least 6 bars in my bag. My favorite flavors are chocolate chip cookie dough and cookies and cream, and they're sooo tasty. 

    What does the next chapter of “The Adventures of Amy Pham” look like? Any exciting projects coming up?
    Hopefully more sleep!!! But always new and exciting things on the horizon, I just live it week by week! I'm supposed to go to Australia (first time ever) soon for a couple campaigns and nightclub events, so that should be fun. I also am launching my actual own Youtube channel, which is very exciting for me since I've never had my own before (I just play host on The Platform). And I have a new show that's set to happen with Maker Studios that involves food... so I'm very very very excited about that! Stay tuned!
    STAY TUNED FOR THE NEXT BADASS BABE!
