Melt-y Matthew

Matthew McConaughey 04 November 1969matt

This good ‘ol boy from Texas chose not to join his family in the oil business, instead earning a degree in film, made a few movies, started a production company and in 2005 was voted as the Sexiest Man Alive by People magazine. Ladies love his Southern charm, his easygoing smile but those deep blue eyes… are the eyes of a Scorpio. If Scorpio’s eyes have the hypnotic power of a snake charmer, Matthew’s living proof! His split with the beautiful Penelope Cruz has us thinking about Scorpio’s reputation for bachelorhood. Worth re-stating, the Scorpion is deeply, deeply private. A feminine sign, he feels life on the emotional level, speaking the language of desire with his body and soul. The Scorpion’s urge to merge with another warm body is a gateway to soul connection – no other sign so closely associates sex with an experience of surrender, oneness and bliss. Physical, sexual involvements easily turn into emotional entanglements, and sorting out the complex passions and strong attachments in Scorpio’s love life takes perspective and humor. Humor us, Matthew!


Daring Demi

Demi Moore 11 November 1962demimoore

Who can forget pregnant Demi posing on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine? Moore was a breathtakingly sexy picture of pregnancy, and this instantly challenged the cultural assumption that pregnant women look un-sexy. Scorpio’s imperative is to uncover social taboos, expose the hidden conflicts we’re uncomfortable naming but guide our behavior nonetheless. Like: why we think only size 2 models are beautiful. Or why an older man can be with a young woman but an older woman with a younger is cause for speculation. Case in point: the sixteen year age difference between Demi and husband, Ashton Kutcher. The more dangerously repressive the accepted norm, the more necessary it is for Scorpio to transform things. Demi on society’s double standard toward woman: “There’s this idea that if you take your clothes off, somehow you must have loose morals. There’s still a negative attitude in our society towards women who use a strength that’s inherent – their femininity – in any way that might be considered seductive.” This sexy Scorpio is working on changing female stereotypes.


The Devilish Side of Anne

anne-hathawayAnne Hathaway 12 November 1982

This young starlet made her debut as a Princess in The Princess Diaries I and II, a rags-to-riches story that took her character from a reluctant unknown to royally glamorous and she landed the same type of role in The Devil Wore Prada as a struggling journalist unwittingly gaining entry into the world of high fashion. A recurring theme in the actresses onstage roles are coincidentally a lot like Scorpio’s -innocent ingénues become powerfully creative through truth-to-self moments about corruption, morality and integrity. Prada epiphany: Money changes people. Power can be used for good or evil. It’s easy to sell your soul to the devil for all the wrong reasons. These powerful questions are part of Scorpio’s probing psychological search for the truth about things we crave, why we want them and how they change us. Eventually Scorpio recognizes the wolves dressed in sheep’s clothing, giving her penetrating insight into people’s character and motives. Has Anne wrestled with her angels and demons in real life? Anne confesses to wanting to be a Nun before she hit stardom!


Halloween Loves Your Alter Ego! Costumes For Every Sign Under the Sun (Libra-Pisces)

What’s so fun about Halloween? You get to dress up, and wear an aspect of your personality people may know – or not! The cool thing about the zodiac is that each sign contains universal archetypes, or ways of expressing (like Aries, the Warrior) making it really easy to tap your innate character for character inspiration. Instead of just your Sun sign, choose your Moon sign Ascendant/Rising sign. Your Rising Sign is your mask – a visible “costume” you wear every single day. Your Moon is the more hidden part of your personality, so wearing a costume for this sign feels natural to you and a little exciting, too, like inviting your alter ego out to play.

Love Smart: Maria Bello, Venus in Gemini

What makes Maria Bello so love smart? She has Venus in Gemini, of mbellocourse – sitting pretty with a sextile from Saturn in Aries and Moon in Leo.

And is perfectly content never marrying. Did you hear that girls? There’s more than one role model for happiness. Here are some excerpted quotes (real) in a (fictional) interview with Moonkissd.

Gwyneth Paltrow, Politely Purist

gwenythGwyneth Paltrow: 28 September 1972

In her academy award winning performance in Shakespeare in Love Gwyneth played Shakespeare’s cross dressing love interest – again, another Libran who is both neither/nor! But her English rose features aren’t her only asset. In Hollywood, where beauty is confused with sexy, Libra’s beauty is eye catching but it’s her brains that captivate. Gwyneth’s beauty is characterized by intelligence and grace, outstanding characteristics of Libra, observed in her demeanor, dress, and movement. She’s been accused by press and fans of being elitist and snobby, but it may be more a matter of tact – for example, criticizing other actresses for playing unimportant romantic comedy roles instead of portraying “real women”. And she moved to England because people there aren’t capitalistic like in America but “have real conversations”. Perhaps Gwyneth’s influenced by her British husband – Librans have a knack for adopting their partner’s tastes, style and preferences. She may also be a bit of a purist for the Libra with “good taste” prefers quality everything.
