Question: I met her last semester, and I was immediately drawn to her in a big brother/little sister type of way. Over time, we grew closer as we got to know each other and I soon began developing deep feelings for her.

There are two major celebrations in the month of December, one Christian and one Pagan – one see in the stars and one led by a star. How do you celebrate the Winter Solstice and Christmas?

The days of Libra and her scales of justice and balance come to an end as the sun enters Scorpio on October 23rd. What does this mean for Scorpios and the rest of us? Scorpio is a water sign and a fixed one at that – leading to change and metamorphism.
