The amount of relationship advice that I've provided to others over the years is amazing to me, esp when many of those years I was simply single and mingling or dating short term! You learn a lot over the years from simply noticing patterns from others, having educational backgrounds in -ology fields, individual research, and unique travel experiences. Common sense also goes a long way. ;)
For some reason a lot of people get into the YOLO energy when they travel, esp overseas. They want to get their spring break "groove" back, hike off the paths, venture into every cave, and jump off every waterfall like it's a slip and slide in the backyard. I'm all for living that adventurous life, but a lot of those "adventures" are quite risky. Dating overseas is the same.
You have to apply the same logic as if you were dating in your home country. As I'm about to embark on an overseas Bucket List adventure, I want to share some dating advice. My spirit guide is already providing me with some funny and annoying dreams on what to avoid...hence this post. ;)
* Stay Safe - Basic rules apply by staying in safe areas, visiting safe areas, hanging out in safe areas, etc. Just do your research beforehand. You know nothing good goes down after midnight anywhere around the World. Have yourself inside by that time as a golden rule. ;)
* Be Yourself - You can be whoever you want to be when you're dating. That's a problem all around because you never really know someone until you have lived with them and/or have dated them for some time. Being yourself just makes things easier for everyone.
Travel mode already makes many people simplify their routines from hair to makeup to styles. This is quite positive for many reasons. The rest is merely about sticking to basic Q & As (first name (Travel Numerology Tip HERE), interests, nationality, etc). If you want to tell people that you're Black, White, and Asian after living in enough countries and befriending enough people since childhood, well then go right ahead! haha Yes I have said that someone before. lol
* Burner Phones - A lot of people get burner phones that they can rent or throw out when they travel. This is a great thing when you plan on meeting new people and/or doing business.
* Be Blind - If your weakness is any and everything pretty, it's time to get mentally strong. Pretty doesn't always mean sane and/or safe! It's easy to fall for that "exotic" stranger in that new "exotic" land that's offering up an "exotic" experience. lol Stay strong ladies! The MIND is always sexier at the end of the day. Have an intellectual conversation first to see what you're working with. That P.Y.T may be off to another after you ask them about their arts and culture interests.
I'm just saying. ;)
Happy and Safe Travels!
Your biorhythms are your daily energy patterns. You can calculate your daily biorhythms with just your birthday. You can also calculate how your energy patterns flow with another individual. It's important to note that your biorhythm compatibilities will never change. The only thing that will change is how much the other person is on your "energy radar". It's also best to calculate your biorhythm compatibility with people that you actually know vs. random strangers. There needs to be a relevant connection to feel things out on a daily basis.
The ideal biorhythms to have for friendships and friends with benefits are between 70-89%. Biorhythm compatibilities between 90%-100% will be the most intense with highs and lows. You will always have 100% with people who share the exact same birthday as you.
* Legal Age Compatibilities are just a number if there's a relevant connection.
* I support all the noonas and cougars of the World who are aging backwards in life. Over the age of 24 is often ideal for romantic partnerships based on
Astrological Maturity Ages (ages 24-30 and ages 31-40).
I have used my birthday as an example to showcase the Main Biorhythm Compatibilities
(Emotional, Physical, Intellectual).
Emotional Rhythms describe how your daily moods flow with one another.
Physical Rhythms describe how your daily physical energies flow with one another. This can also highlight physical attractions.
Intellectual Rhythms describe how your daily mental thoughts flow with one another. This can also highlight telepathic connections if both individuals are intuitive.

The talented group ASTRO inspired this post obviously. lol Three out of six members are enjoying a loving ear massage while celebrating their Japanese album "Venus".
Although ear reflexology massage points can reduce pain and assist in digestion, it's actually a lot more painful than the post on Foot and Hand Reflexology points. I did get a good laugh out of their cute attempts though. lol
The Japanese version of their song "All Night" is just as good as their Korean version by the way...a beautiful video that inspired the Venus-ish Feng Shui Gardening post.
Venus is the planet of love and beauty. It describes aspects of your personality and what you're attracted to in others (temptations, friendships, and/or romantic relationships). It can give clues to your flirting style as well. Scroll to the end of the post to discover your birth chart's Venus sign.
My Venus sign is in the sign of Aquarius. I'm often attracted to quirky individuals who aren't afraid to stand out from the crowd. This includes innovators, artists, comedians, musicians, dancers, and overall entertainers. Although I'm quite direct and humorous when I like someone due to being a Sagittarius, my Venus sign in Aquarius keeps me rather cool and detached at first. It's a lovely balance. Some may call Venus in Aquarius's initial approach a bit "cold". I just call it Swag. ;)
Venus Sign in Air Signs (Aquarius, Gemini, Libra)
- Detached, Objective, "Swaggy", Creative, Fickle, Intellectuals, Chatty, Friendships, Easy Going
Venus Sign in Fire Signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)
- Variety is the Spice, Enthusiastic, Passionate, Tempermental, Direct, Adventurous
Venus Sign in Water Signs (Pisces, Cancer, Scorpio)
- Romantic, Emotional, Passionate, Sensitive, Picky, Charming, Private, "Loyal", Intuitive
Venus Sign in Earth Signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)
- Dependable, Picky, Practical, Grounded, "Loyal", Organized, Sensual, Reliable
Destiny vs. Free Will is often a question many people have. It's often misunderstood how your life path works. I'll keep it pretty simple though.
You have some parts of your life that are predestined and some parts that are not. At the end of the day, your life path lessons will all be learned...in this life or the next one! Relationships are often the best and quickest teachers in every lifetime.
The Forrest Gump meme is really just a truth statement to how life should be enjoyed. Be open to welcoming new people, places, and things throughout it. You never know if you'll like something until you try it. Take time to savor one by one. You may even put some in categories (nuts, fruits, and decadent fillings). Life would be pretty boring and restless if that box of chocolates was all the same. Welcome life's mysteries by making the efforts to take a bite. Just make sure that you're having fun with it. That's what's important at the end of the day. :)
Ah Love. It can be a wonderful journey of self discovery when higher perspectives are taken into account. Many often get confused when words like "soulmate" are thrown around though. I often hear "I'm looking for my soulmate" or "I thought he/she was my soulmate?". The truth is that we have many soulmates! Trust me! I know! I also know how to move on from them (if necessary) so that the next ones can arrive. This is why I am writing this post. :)
Soulmates are people that we have chosen to learn life lessons from. Many come in from previous lifetimes to resolve spiritual karmic debts. They don't guarantee happily ever after for this reason! They can come in many forms as well (parents, teachers, bosses, siblings, friendships, crushes, dating partners, marriage partners, etc). Magnetic attractions are often at work to get us into many of our romantic/sexual soulmate unions. Once we are in, it can be quite a ride of self discovery, esp when it comes to discovering our Egos!
The word Ego is not a bad word though. Egos are there to push us forward in life. Ego helps us to achieve our goals. The Ego becomes a hindrance in relationships when it's used to restrict ourselves and/or our partners. This is when the Ego becomes focused on wanting control over a relationship vs. allowing a relationship freedom. I see this all the time with couples who go back and forth with ex partnerships, esp when the ex attempts to move on into a new relationship. It can get even more dramatic when children and step parenting are involved. It doesn't have to be that way though.
The best thing to do in these cases is to look at the qualities that you still admire about the other person. Relationships act as mirrors at the end of the day. Two people are simply reflecting the same qualities within one another. Bringing those positive qualities up within helps couples to focus more on their own inner strengths. This builds an independent vs. dependent mindset in relationships. The mutual and secure appreciation creates a True Love bond during and after the relationship's expiration date.
Understanding how the Universe works is also crucial. The Universe vibrates to 3s. Checkpoints in relationships for reevaluations often come in multiples of 3s. Every 3 weeks, 6 weeks, 3 months, 6 months, 3 years, 6 years, etc, are major checkpoints. These checkpoints become even stronger when couples choose to get married. The 9th and 12th year are often some of the strongest reevaluation checkpoints for long term couples. An ideal way to take on these checkpoints is to travel. Getting away from your normal stomping grounds can breathe new life into healthy relationships that are seeking a refresh. Unhealthy relationships that didn't have many positive reflections will use these checkpoints to go their separate ways. This is when the couple's unhealthy shared qualities can get the healing that is necessary and required. :) <3
I personally use Chinese New Year (Feb 5th Year of the Pig for 2019) as my Official New Year. I personally recommend asking for someone's Chinese Astrology Sign before their Western Astrology Sign, esp in romantic relationships.
Guess my Chinese Animal Sign from the image above. My Sagittarius Western Astrology Sign just adds to fun barnyard mix! You'll eventually start to see everyone as the animals that they are...atleast until the robots take over. ;)
Chinese Astrology is based on a 12 year cycle with an animal representing each year. Each animal has a different personality with negative (things you need to improve/release) and positive characteristics (things you need to bring up more).

Feng Shui (fung shway) is the ancient chinese art of
placement. Feng Shui design is all about balancing and harmonizing your environment's chi (energy). Through the use of colors, design, and compass directions, you can truly transform your environments. A transformed environment translates to a transformed life. Here are five ways to transform your love life today.
Clutter creates energy blocks in your environment.
Get organized by ridding everything that's nolonger working in your life.
Divide your home into sections for daily or weekly cleaning.
Create bins labeled Trash, Donate, File, and Recycle.
Take your bins to their designated dumping grounds at the end of each day.
This will help you to stay organized and avoid overwhelm for the next day's tasks.
Take a look at everything from furniture clutter to paper clutter.
The feng shui energy starts grooving the minute you start moving!
2. Southwest Sector
The Southwest sector is known as your Love and Relationships
sector. This is the area that governs all of your relationships
(business, family, friends, romance).
Bring in pinks, yellows, beige, white, and a little red to the Southwest.
3. Pair Items
Love starts within before it manifests outward.
See yourself paired up by pairing everything else up. Enjoy two end tables
next to a cozy loveseat, artwork that displays a couple in love, and/or a lovely
dining table set for two. The pairings are truly endless.
4. Bedroom Decor
Your bedroom rules your health and relationships.
Pay attention to the design and decor of the environment.
Make sure that your bed has a side table on each side.
This will manifest equal partnerships.
Have a strong headboard and baseboard as well.
This will manifest stability and security in your relationships.
Bring in the essence of sensuality with silk sheets, faux sheepskin rugs, and cozy blankets. You want to create a relaxing and cozy environment for yourself.
Bedroom No Nos
Avoid blacks and blues. These colors are associated with the water element.
You don't want to water down your relationships.
Avoid a home office in the bedroom. Your bedroom is for rest and relaxation.
Avoid mirrors that reflect the bed. Mirrors bounce energy around. This disturbs your health and sleep. Mirrors can also create a "third party" energy in your relationship. Televisions should be covered up or taken out.
You want your bedroom to be a sanctuary where the only distraction is your partner.
5. Create Your Ideal Partner
Knowing what you want will save you a lot of time in relationships.
Create an ideal partner and/or relationship list to place in the Southwest sector.
List the Top 20 qualities that you love about yourself.
This will help you to understand the partner qualities that will compliment you best.
