LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Are you being silent when you need to speak up? This is so unlike you. If you continue in this manner, you’ll surely blow your top at an inopportune time. You have a right to your opinion.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Be careful not to mistake spirituality for art. They relate to each other, but the artist isn’t necessarily always a good person, and a good person isn’t necessarily an artist.

From NowSmellThis:

Parfumerie Generale has launched two new limited edition fragrances, Bois Blond and L’Ombre Fauve.

Bois Blond is “one evening in August, the time of the harvest”, and includes galbanum, cut grasses, cedar hay, blond tobacco, amber and musk.

L’Ombre Fauve is an animalic scent with amber and musk, and perhaps best described in the original French: “Une olfaction animale. Son raffinement bestial.”

Bois Blond & L’Ombre Fauve are 75€ for 50 ml; 120€ for 100 ml, and are mixed to order with a personalized label. Update: these two fragrances will be available on the Parfumerie Generale website (see link below) until 3/30 only; luckyscent will also get a few bottles of each.

A third limited edition fragrance, Ether de Lilas Blanc sur Feuillage Tendre, will launch soon. Ether de Lilas is described as the “poetic flight of a floral infusion”, and features notes of passionflower, orange blossom, bark, mandarin, lilac, leaves, iris and musk. Ether de Lilas Blanc Sur Feuillage Tendre is 58€ for 50 ml; 78€ for 100 ml. (via Parfumerie Generale website)

***I want #1 L’Ombre Fauve and #2 Bois Blond or both!!!****

From Creators:

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’re delivering the stark, bare-bones, gleaming truth now. You’re not afraid of the reaction to it, either — you just don’t want to be there when it happens. … OK, maybe you are a little bit afraid.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Though there’s a pressure to look busy, there’s really nothing to be gained by running around and flailing your arms. That won’t stop some — but you have enough sense to be lazy.

From 24hours:

LEO: Keep everything upfront. Taking action in secret or signing a long-term agreement could turn into a liability later.

PISCES: Your romantic nature is nagging you to zero in on a potential partner, but he/she might be a suspect instead of a prospect.

A recent magazine survey, interviewed fifty bartenders and they were asked if they could identify a customer’s personality on what drinks they ordered?
Although interviewed separately, they concurred on almost all counts.
The results:
IF WOMEN DRINK …

BEER
Personality: Casual, low maintenance; down to earth.
Approach: Challenge her to a game of pool.

COCKTAILS OR BLENDER DRINKS WITH UMBRELLA
Personality: Flaky, annoying, dizzy, and a pain in the ass.
Approach: Avoid her, unless you want to be her cabin boy.

MIXED DRINKS – NO UMBRELLAS E.G.; GIN AND TONIC / SCOTCH AND SODA
Personality: Mature, has picky taste; knows what she wants
Approach: If she wants you, she’ll send YOU a drink.

WATER
Personality: Pretentious and is looking for a serious relationship.
Approach: Don’t.

WINE – (BOTTLED, NOT 4 LITRE CASK)
Personality: Conservative and classy, sophisticated.
Approach: Try and weave Paris and clothing into the conversation.

BACARDI BREEZER, RED SQUARE, ARCHERS COOLER, SMIRNOFF ICE, MUDSHAKE ETC.
Personality: Easy; thinks she is trendy and sophisticated actually has no clue.
Approach: Make her feel smarter than she is… and you’re in.

CAPE VELVET
Personality: Annoying voice, bit of a tart.
Approach: Stand close and mention the alley next to the pub.

SHOTS AND SLAMMERS (TEQUILA, VODKA, AFTERSHOCK ETC.)
Personality: Hangs around with male work pals or looking to get drunk…and naked.
Approach: Easiest hit in the pub, Nothing to do but wait…….

IF MEN DRINK… (As always, very simple and clear cut.)

CIDER
He’s probably under-aged and wants to get laid.

CHEAP DOMESTIC BEER
He’s poor / student and wants to get laid.

CASTLE LAGER BEER
He likes good beer and wants to get laid.

IMPORTED BEER
He’s old; he likes good beer and wants to get laid.

GUINNESS
The man is a rapist and will get laid one way or another.

WATER
He just threw up and is trying to wash the taste out of his mouth so that he can still get laid

WINE
He’s hoping that the wine thing will give him a sophisticated image and help him get laid.

VODKA OR BRANDY
Extremely horny hound, would shag a warm scarf. Desperate to get laid.

PORT
Thinks he’s sophisticated, secretly likes men and wants to get laid.

WHISKY
He doesn’t give two $hits about anything and will hit anyone who will get in his way of getting laid.

JACK DANIELS
Not as masculine as the whisky drinker, knows all about feminine activities (knitting, crochet etc.) to weasel himself into getting laid.

RUM OR TEQUILA
Likes fighting almost as much as getting laid.

BACARDI BREEZER, RED SQUARE, ARCHERS COOLER, SMIRNOFF ICE, ETC
He’s gay (blatantly) – don’t turn your back or pick up any dropped change

From Creators:

For Sunday Feb 25th:

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Think about it: No one has lived precisely as you have on this planet. The stars urge you to retell parts of your life story. Better yet, write it down. An Aries person is the perfect audience for you.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’re in a sassy, loud, sarcastic mood, and that’s just why loved ones adore you. The key is in keeping some kind of social balance. You can get away with using more humor than others, but don’t push your luck.

For Saturday, Feb 24th:

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Introspection brings a realization. Carl Jung said that your vision will only become clear when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakens.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). People expand under your praise, becoming a more vibrant version of themselves. And if you go so far as to applaud someone, the repercussions of your clapping could positively alter the course of history.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “Please explain the compatibility between Pisces and Taurus as marriage partners.”

I don’t believe that astrology is meant to limit our choices in any way, especially not in love. Therefore, let me first say that any astrological coupling can work, each in a different way, highlighting unique aspects of our personality and focusing our lives on different kinds of issues. Pisces is a water sign, and Taurus, a sign of the earth. These two have many qualities together that can make a marriage successful. However, hard work is implied in this coupling. If both parties are willing to make the marriage a priority, the combined assets that befall this twosome are well worth the effort. Pisces brings out the most profound and provocative emotions in stoic Taurus. Together they make the subtle nuances of love their playground. Romance is a strong suit with these two. Both know how to savor each sweet moment together. So where does the work come in? Taurus has a hard time understanding Pisces’ mood swings and can become inflexible. Pisces likes that Taurus is adept at making decisions, but will resent that Taurus’ stubborn streak keeps those decisions unamendable.

For Friday February 23rd:

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There’s a tendency to over-think things, and this could cause you to hesitate or procrastinate with what you need to do. Don’t get it right, just get it done. You’re brilliant once you dive in.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’re on the verge of pulling off something incredible. You can do this. You only need to dedicate a block of time to it on a consistent basis. Motor on.

WEEKEND LOVE FORECAST: ARIES: You’re willing to travel to share your heart. TAURUS: Even the oldest story in the book sounds new when someone you’re interested in is telling it. GEMINI: Don’t let the fear of being wrong keep you from knowing that you’re right. CANCER: To be dependent on others is a disguised blessing. You let down your guard and are well taken care of. LEO: Planets set your social life abuzz — you flicker and flit from person to person, sharing your effervescent affection. VIRGO: When you’re not looking for love, it finds you. LIBRA: You’ll experience echoes of past love in a new relationship. SCORPIO: You love without worrying about how it’ll come back to you. SAGITTARIUS: The most romantic thing you can share is play. So remain playful, even while engaged in a mundane or serious process. CAPRICORN: Accept gifts only if you really can accept the affection of the giver. AQUARIUS: A relationship is transforming, but don’t worry, it gets stronger as it grows. PISCES: Try not to mistake a loved one’s comments for criticism. In their nosey, overbearing way, they’re attempting to love you.

COUPLE OF THE WEEKEND: With the sun in their sign, Pisces people are emboldened to go for their desires. While Pisces is in the process of cooking up a recipe for love, he or she could go knocking on a zodiac neighbor’s door to borrow a little sugar. Both Aries and Aquarius are receptive to requests, but Aquarius is the more enthusiastic of the two. The connection that Pisces and Aquarius share is sweet indeed!

Horoscopes for week of February 22-28 (macsstars):

LEO: t is just the craziest time for the Lions of the zodiac. Saturn continues his lengthy visit which is never really comfortable. “Do we always have to be on our best behavior?” you may ask. Now life is destined to become even more intense and strange. Read the intro regarding the grand trine taking shape these days. Saturn in Leo is the apex and focal point of the grand trine configuration. A tremendous amount of planetary energy is focused in Leo. Fortunately you are hard wired to properly handle whatever the universe brings your way. Many different realities may loom into the picture.

PISCES Strap on your snoopy helmet and scarf and prepare for a journey into who knows where. Life could become strange and strained if you allow as life is changing and you must accommodate the changes and go with it. Don’t let fear get in your way. Know that you will land safely with many a tale to tell. Adventures in consciousness is what I am talking about. A tremendous time of great journeys of the mind has arrived and life is only limited by our own imaginations. A flowering of the spirit is taking place as your consciousness takes root in the higher realities.

PISCES: Your senses are focused as you become attracted to one specific goal, instead of thinking about a variety of possibilities. Financial concerns may be the deciding factor if you are pushed to make a decision. Money issues can either be very good or quite difficult during the next weeks, but either way, you want to spend to have fun. Just remember that what you can spend may necessarily limit what you are able to do.

pg querelleI was introduced to Querelle by Naz at The Perfume Shoppe. She had previously introduced me to the Serge Lutens and PG (Parfumerie Generale) lines and I have been hooked ever since. She has an uncanny ability to find what you would like and most importantly, what would smell gorgeous on you. I went in there on a cold and bitter January day, looking for a pick-me-up, and because I wasn’t feeling the scents I had. SL’s Un Bois Vanille and PG’s Brulure de Rose were perfect for the time I bought them; Un Bois Vanille was perfect for a cold but sunny fall day, and Brulure de Rose was femininity in a starched white shirt. Alas, none suited the cold and bleak January days. My scent for the day highly depends on the weather… everything depends on the weather. Where I go (if not work), what I wear, my makeup palette, my jewelry, and lastly my scent all starts from the weather. I need to know the current and forecasted temperatures, percentage of rain, and when the sun is going to break… but as confirmation, I usually just look outside. Sure most people can’t dress without a mirror, but I can’t do anything without looking outside.
