What's in Store for Your Love Life This September, According to Your Zodiac
(March 21 to April 19)
Feeling lost and alone and hopelessly single? You might be looking too far away. Sometimes, limiting your love landscape can actually be a good thing. It's time to get really pensive this month and reexamine the kind of partner you're looking for. When you get specific about the characteristics you feel you'll fall in love with, your eyes may start opening up to people who are within your social circle. Some folks deserve a second look—what you're looking for may be staring at you right in the face!
(April 20 to May 20)
Having someone be the object of your affection can totally wreck your sense of self-worth sometimes—insecurities start popping up out of nowhere and even when you feel 99% on point, that 1% can sneak up on you and totally ruin your flow. The stars are reminding you this month that you are awesome, exactly as you are. And that person you've been trying to impress? They're already pretty impressed—and that's without you having to change a single thing. You go, Glen Coco!
(May 21 to June 20)
It's way too easy to lay all the blame, bitterness and jadedness on the ex. But if you really want to move away from the past and start shedding all that baggage, you’re going to have to acknowledge that those past loves—no matter how ugly and hurtful they got—have helped shape the you of the present. All the mistakes you've committed before have brought you to where you are, and any hope you have for a better love in the future springs forth from that. Accept your past and be okay with it.
(June 21 to July 22)
You downplay your good points way too often, Cancer. This month, allow yourself to be bold and wonderful and totally worthy of someone's full attention. You are epic! And don't let anybody make you think otherwise. You're great at helping prop your friends up when they're going through their own love dilemmas, it's about time you took the spotlight and enlisted their support—trust the stars, they'll be happy to help you out. When that guy you've been eyeing returns your attention, don't shy away. Embrace it.
(July 23 to August 22)
You appreciate a good shakeup, Leo, because having things be calm and peaceful on the love front can get a little too boring and ho-hum for your fiery spirit. This month, your relationship may take a couple of non-threatening hits—perhaps an argument here or there, a little bit of jealousy being riled up. Know that the conflict is part and parcel of growing together and evolving together. Just don't get in over your head so that pettiness doesn't take over!
(August 23 to September 22)
You're definitely all for equality when it comes to relationships—you're totally being okay with "leading" and making important decisions for you both, and your partner doesn't have any problems stepping back. That said, it's time to give your receptive, feminine energy side some attention this month. Explore the fun in being led, being surprised and perhaps, even being courted this month. Let yourself be treated and be confident enough to know that that you're still both on equal footing.
(September 23 to October 22)
Before you start whining about never getting your way when it comes to your love life, consider this first: have you actually asked for what you want? There are a ton of wins waiting for you, Libra—if only you bother to ask for them. If you've been waiting around for a prom invite forever, have you even thought of being the first to ask? Great rewards come from great risks. Sure, rejection may sting a little but the stars are reminding you that there is an abundance of love surrounding you. The Universe supports you.
(October 23 to November 21)
If you've been dumped recently, or have been out of that old relationship for so long but haven't gotten out of your rut, then it's time to enlist your friends to help you find your joy once again. Moaning and whining is not a good look for you, Scorpio. You may like to play up the feels and the pain and the "woe is me" mentality, but you're never going to find new love if you're constantly hemming and hawing about your past. Ask your best girls to take you out for a night out. Open yourself up to cheer once again.
(November 22 to December 21)
Things aren't going to change between you and your partner (or that person who you've been wanting to hook up with forever but haven't) if you don't initiate change. How many more times are you going to let yourself be a doormat before you realize that you can actually end it yourself? There is so much light in you, Sagittarius—but if you’re refusing to see it and are continuing to stay in a pattern of self-deprecation, you're not going to feel any better. Change starts now. Rinse and repeat.
(December 22 to January 19)
Has something been bugging you about the person you're interested in? Your friends may say you're being unreasonable, and your logic may even tell you that you're making no sense. But those gut instincts are there for a reason and if you really feel ticked off one way or another about the person you're with, then perhaps you should explore not being with them anymore. It's time to accept the hard lessons and receive what the Universe offers up to replace them. Things could get a whole lot better!
(January 20 to February 18)
Is your love life stressing you out, above school work and family obligations and extra curriculars? It's time to drop those worries and let your inner queen take over—someone who's feathers don't get ruffled by the little things, someone who can fiercely deal with any attacks coming up, and someone who knows that life has got more to offer than the stress on your table at the moment. Love and falling in love should feel good. Make space for that kind of love in your life, not any other kind.
(February 19 to March 20)
It's about time you turned the story around, Pisces, and focus on yourself first. It may appear ruthless to dismiss all the people who are interested in you (and hanging around by the sidelines), but there comes a certain integrity and honor when you say "Wait a minute, I'm going to need some ME TIME right now." How can you give yourself the love you know you deserve in your heart, instead of waiting to receive it from someone else? Fall in love with YOU.

Hi everyone! I just want to share my first collaboration with my father. I converted two of my digital arts, Oneness and We Got Each Other's Back, into a vase and a bookend. I designed it and he made it into a reality. The Oneness Metal Vase is perfect for dried flowers and or artificial flowers. The We Got Each Other's Back Bookend is made from solid metal in which the cubes can be arranged to the user's liking. Both metal sculptures work as an accent piece that can liven up one's space. In case you guys are interested, you can reach me through Facebook/Instagram: @artdkf.ph
Imagine you are holding a photograph. There, there you are. A 5-year-old you is being carried by her momma and papa while holding your rag dolls. That innocent, charming little girl is looking at you and said, "Where are you now?"
Life is filled with several U-turns and unexpected twists of events and during these times in which silver spoons are nowhere to be found: Our families ensure we still get and experience the best as we survive this pandemic. Here's my song, I wrote back 2 years ago entitled: "Won't Let You Cry" and take time to honor and appreciate our parents as they are the biggest front liners in our lives throughout the years.
If you're still single now, there are probably a a lot of questions running in your head. But being on your own for a long time helps you discover more about yourself. It's more than just freedom or independence. It's facing the world with so much courage. It's trying to make the most of your life without having to depend on someone. It's being happy on your own and loving yourself with all that you are.
We've been chasing love only to realize that it's not gonna work out that way. The right time will come that you will be blessed with the one you deserve. The one who also prayed to be with you. The one who will make you believe in love again. Let life surprise you. Hang in there.
The most thrilling and delightful moment of any school day is opening up your baon during breaks. There is always so much excitement in unveiling your homemade meal and snacks housed inside matching heat-insulating containers. Because preparing packed meals is an age-old tradition of showing parental love, loved ones pour effort into curating a nutritious meal accompanied by a selection of side dishes, desserts, and beverages daily; it reminds us that we are being taken care of, even from far away.
Baon plays a significant role in a Filipino childhood. Almost every Filipino child comes to school with baon made especially for them by their parents or household helpers. Even Filipinos in the labor force continue to bring baon for varying reasons: to save money, recycle leftovers, cater to personal taste, or attend to special needs. Nonetheless, eating your baon is a heart-warming experience that allows Filipinos to bring a piece of home along with them wherever they go.
Even other cultures practice making packed lunch. In Japan, mothers create bento--Japanese meals in partitioned boxes. Because of the popularity of bento, trends have emerged, such as the Kyaraben, or character-themed bento. Naturally, Japanese parents and students began competing for who had the cutest and tastiest bento, and this is similar to what I have witnessed in my own childhood. I remember seeing my classmates sharing their snacks and lunches. They would compare and boast about their parents' or yayas’ cooking. In my case, I never had the chance to join in the competition or indulge in homemade cooking. Up until this day, I have never brought any baon to school.
For a long time, I envied others. As trivial or petty as it may seem, not having baon became a problem for my grade school self. During that time, I had to sit in a separate cafeteria away from my friends because the kids who bought food were assigned to sit elsewhere. You could consider me spoiled, but I wanted to experience something most kids did. I had food at home, so what made it so hard to bring some with me to school?
Now that I am on my final year in high school I have come to realize the benefits of purchasing my own food. Since I spent on food everyday, I learned to budget my allowance at a young age. Over the years, I learned to practice self-control whenever I wanted to eat more greasy fries and drink sweetened beverages. I have tasted the strangest viands at the school cafeterias, and I have repeatedly satiated myself over my latest delicious discoveries. Despite the struggles, I am thankful that I have never had baon because of what I have learned. Not to mention, I never had to experience eating cold food.
Literally to begin with, I am writing with little shaky hands because this is the last time I went for a vacation like most of us must have and can’t plan any for now. The coronavirus outbreak has compelled us to stay at home for our safety and others in the vicinity.
I remember how I penned down my year 2020 to be the most remarkable year of my life in the hope of doing everything I desired for a long time and overcoming few obstacles. Whilst planning things ahead, I forgot to truly value all of things in the present.
I remember being chipper and grateful for my last summer vacation but now I feel I should’ve valued each and every moment. Considering the current gnarly situation, I want each one us to motivate ourselves to look for a positive side and to make the most of our time no matter the situation.
Make a promise to yourself that you won’t give up in these circumstances and reckon that there are a lot of good things for us in the store. We’ll have the most amazing season of our life post pandemic. Let’s accept for the change and become the change. Propagate love and only love.
