(March 21 to April 19)

You go, Glen Coco—that's this month's motto because really, as far as relationships go, you can make anything you want happen. And no, we don't mean working voodoo magic to make someone fall in love with you. You can make anything you want happen within your sphere. Manifesting the love you want isn't about switching someone's feelings for you but making a change in how you love yourself so that all the other magic just naturally follows.


(April 20 to May 20)

You're usually really great about putting in the necessary work a relationship needs (i.e., watching that game with your guy even if you just don't get basketball)… so why is it such a struggle this time around? Maybe it's time to figure out if you're really as invested in this partnership as you were in the beginning. If your priorities have changed and little sacrifices are now becoming a huge pain, it's time to rethink your situation.



(May 21 to June 20) 

Well hello there, lover—you seem to be just full of all the feelings this month. There hasn't been a better time to capture "my cup runneth over" than this August. This kind of luck doesn't come around too often, so live it up while you can. If you're positively bursting with feelings for someone and still haven't made it known, now's the best time to get a little vulnerable in the best way possible, and make your love known.

(June 21 to July 22)

Let's be honest, the road to relationship happiness hasn't really been paved with the best intentions. You've been having a tough run and we get it. When you feel like your heart's been trampled on one too many times, it's completely understandable for you to want to get all the rage out. You're usually so forgiving when it comes to feelings, so forgive yourself for going on an all-out angerfest, even for just one day. Get it out 'til it's all gone and then move on.



(July 23 to August 22) 

For the most part, you're pretty sure you can weave your way into the best situation possible whenever it comes to love. Don’t be too confident, Leo—not everything works out perfectly 100% of the time. Watch your step and be careful who you have to hit in order to get your ideal relationship going. Self-love is awesome but being too self-serving can make someone insensitive to other people. Someone might be suffering as you work your way to getting the love you want.

Rest easy, because your upcoming birthday is the perfect time for romance. That's great if you're actually looking for a serious commitment—not so great if you're skirting around the idea of settling down with a boyfriend. If you've been avoiding getting into a relationship and would rather date whomever you please, try stepping back. Maybe it's time to give yourself the benefit of finding The One. (The One for now, at the very least).



(September 23 to October 22) 

Your most significant love relationship—whether it's unrequited love, a best friend turned boyfriend, or a serious commitment—may be coming towards a serious turn this month. And by serious, we mean really deep, sometimes painful stuff. Deep breaths, Libra, you can handle this for sure. It's not going to be easy and there may be tears, but positive change awaits you on the other side of the bridge. You just have to get through it.


(October 23 to November 21) 

So PDA can be a little offensive from time to time, and so your friends may be really sick of seeing you and your boyfriend's googly-eyed snaps. So what? You're in a positively great place when it comes to your relationship and sometimes you just want to flaunt it. Throw caution to the wind and stop being so self-conscious when it comes to whom you love and why you love him. Shout it from the rooftops while you're on a high!



(November 22 to December 21) 

Vulnerability can come to an all-time high when you fall in love with someone. You're willing to bear your soul and leave it hanging. You seem to be in some kind of relationship limbo at the moment. You've said your peace and are now waiting to hear back from your significant other. It can seem uneasy when the ball is in someone else's court but you won’t have to wait too long before this restlessness is over. Hang in there.


(December 22 to January 19)

You usually prefer to stay in the sidelines and not bring too much attention to yourself. But if you're going to get that guy to notice you, or if you're going to take your relationship to a place that works for you, you're going to have to step up to the plate and be your own boss. You've got way too much potential to lose it to shyness or timidity—you can totally have the love you want (perhaps you even have it already and just don'r realize it!). You just have to believe it.



(January 20 to February 18)

Sometimes, it just feels good to crawl into our own little holes and just be away from all the chaos that can come with relationship drama. Give yourself a chance to be on your own to catch your breath, Aquarius. If you dive in and get messy before you can gather your thoughts, you might get lost in all the madness. You can't be in an effective relationship if you don't know how to put yourself first. It's time for self-love.


(February 19 to March 20)

Let's put a pause on all the seriousness this month, Pisces. Love doesn't always have to be so complicated, after all. It's time to feel the good, clean fun of first crushes, first dates, and first kisses. You've got the rest of your life to figure relationships out and you'll never be as free as you are right now. Put the brakes on getting overly serious and just learn to have fun. It'll be so worth it.

5 Mystery-Thriller Novels to Read

If you’re stuck at home and out of Netflix shows to binge-watch, then you might want to try and read these mystery-thriller books to match your homemade Dalgona Coffee.

1. The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides

The debut novel, and Goodreads Choice Awards Best Mystery & Thriller of 2019, follows Alicia Berenson, a well-known painter married to an esteemed fashion photographer. Life seemed perfect for Alicia, until one evening when she shot her husband five times, and… never spoke again.

2. Lock Every Door by Riley Sager

From the author of Final Girls comes this page turning novel about an infamous building in Manhattan called the Bartholomew. After stumbling upon an ad to become an apartment sitter, Jules Larsen has set out to look after apartment 12A under strict and somewhat odd conditions. Not long after stepping foot in the building, Jules has been met with unfriendly tenants, eerie noises in the apartment unit, and an abrupt departure of a fellow sitter named Ingrid.


3. The Sun Down Motel by Simone St. James

If you loved Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho or David Lynch’s Twin Peaks, then this book is for you. After the disappearance of her Aunt Vivian while working as a night-shift clerk at the Sun Down Motel in 1982, Carly has set off to Fell NY, to work the same job at the same place as her Aunt had 35 years ago – with hopes of uncovering the truth lurking behind the Motel walls.

4. Verity by Colleen Hoover

While known for Young-Adult Novels such as Slammed and Maybe Someday, Colleen Hoover offers readers a romantic thriller about Lowen Ashleigh, a struggling author who was given the opportunity to finish the three remaining novels of a successful series after its original author, Verity Crawford, suffered an accident and has become immobile. After receiving an invite at the Crawford manor to sort through Verity’s notes, Lowen discovers an unpublished autobiography revealing the truth about Verity. With the eerie atmosphere of having Verity confined in her own home, and who is seemingly aware of her surroundings, Lowen is certain Verity is not what she appears to be.


5. Dark Matter by Blake Crouch

A mind-bending science fiction thriller from the best-selling author of Wayward Pines – Dark Matter is packed with the concept of the Multiverse and the philosophy of existentialism. The novel follows an ordinary Physics professor, Jason Dessen, who was looking forward to dinner with his family while walking the streets of Chicago. The next thing he knew, he was being held at gunpoint – by a man wearing a mask – and injected with an unknown drug and blacks out. When he regains consciousness, he learns that the world he woke up to was different from the world he knew.


Here's a poem I wrote a while back reflecting on what it's like over-rationalize a simple thing like crushing on a dude -- hence, the title "Scientific Method"

Scientific Method

You were a phenomenon I cannot wrap my head around

When I first met you, my heart forgot to make its signature sound

And it's overwhelming, your presence;

And underwhelming, so science will be the only language I'll hide in-- For now.


At first glance, I notice your top button unbuttoned,

and your shirt fully cotton

Complete with a smile as nervous as me

And a swagger in your step only I can see

Further on, I find your wit to be at a pace

That doesn't leave any space for tension to rise

and it's all too nice

And ridiculous and a bit too suspicious

That this isn't another (well,) circus.


Now, let's take a wild guess,


Oh, but it has to be smart, yes,

That this could lead to something with potential

That this isn't another differential easily solved

With a formula, tried and tested but never evolved


For so long, we've both been independent of any dependent

Keeping our variables fixed and ourselves distracted

With anything, everything,

But not a single thing

Could stop me from pushing this blindly to find its threshold,

Hoping that it's a quantity my hands could still hold

Over hours, days, and weeks

Through minor revisions and tweaks

Then comes the analysis -- that these weren't accidents

So, now I find myself in a conundrum

With the anomaly in a blue shirt right in front of me,

That this had to be processed logically,

But the findings are as follows:

None of which were shallow, so I therefore conclude that it's true,

I therefore conclude that it's you.


Mi Luna: The Light in My Dark Soul Locked in… Alone…

Why do I feel comforted by darkness? Oh cause maybe because… I am a jolly and very enthusiast kid back then. All I know is to have fun, laugh and play. But as I grow older, everything has changed, a lot. I can feel the changes. I know the more I get older, I’m turning to something I’m not. You know what, I just realized I like it even more. And that’s how I turned a monster. A monster to my own self. Always questioning life and even God about the things that are happening with my life. “Do I deserve this?”. Every day was a struggle. “Which mask should I wear now?”. And every night is my judgement time. “Should I still continue with my miserable life?”. This certainly sum up my whole life. I have this mindset since I was young. I can say that my experiences made me like this. I always want to escape, but every time I tried to pick up myself up, there is always shits that pulls me down. And there, I get tired. Hoping that no one would ever see this. As I despise myself as well. What I can do now is to just embraced everything, I just embraced darkness- reflecting my own self.

“Look at the moon, it can shine alone and it can give us light at night.” A line I was keeping in my mind that a friend of mine helps me realize things and been there to fix my path. And there I started seeking for my moon but I do not know which part should I start. As days passed, I started to open up myself. I started to act as what truly inside me. It is very hard at first and there is this time that even the situation got worst. But as I continue exploring with my life, a question pop out on my head “Why did I still get this far?”, I can say that maybe I should do this, maybe I really can do this but it is myself who is holding me back because I’m afraid.

Now as far as I am trying to revive my soul, there I know that many people care. Yes, I learned to open up but not to all, on different situations there are people who can understand me because they have the same situation as I am. I learn to open up as long as they did not force me. I learned to navigate and open up for whom I trusted and at the same time when I am ready. The light that I am seeking is my own understanding and acceptance about myself. My light is myself and I am Mi Luna. So it is not too late to save myself. I have thought that, I should be a survivor and winner. That I should also be the ruler of my own mind and soul. Eliminate the room for darkness and let the light shine through you, that I can say how I earned myself again. Mi Luna’s darkness have turned to spotlight.
