Most people who work with animal totems and other animal spirits don't do much with their plant, fungus, and other counterparts.

How can we re-connect with our full ecosystem, both locally and globally? Lupa, author of the new Nature Spirituality from the Ground Up, explains.

Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), or tapping, is a simple technique to release your stress and overwhelm, emotional pain and bad memories, limiting beliefs and unhelpful ways of thinking, and challenging behaviors.

It encompasses the body and the mind, as well as the body's energy system. It's quick, it's easy, it's free, and anyone can use it. So how do we begin to use EFT to address our issues?

Brad Kronen's new book, Love in the Stars, profiles the romantic dynamics created between each of the twelve signs of the Zodiac whenever dating one another. The book illustrates that every combination of sign can work together, but that some combos take more work than others just to achieve a state of equilibrium. This is especially true when you consider the astrological rule of thumb that same-signed unions are generally frowned upon, due to each sign having its own unique issues to confront whenever dating itself. Since we're currently in the sign of Sagittarius, he discusses the issues that can arise with same-sign unions through the lens of the double Sagittarius couple Jim Morrison & Pam Courson.

If you've ever taken a yoga class—or studied the chakras—you've probably been told that you have seven chakras. And you do—sort of. The truth is that the number of chakras you might perceive, as well as ideas about their function, is based on cultural viewpoint. For instance, a few hundred years ago, many Hindu experts said there are six, not seven, chakras. Yet others counted dozens of chakras. And yet, most people in the West conclusively believe there are seven Hindu-based chakras. So which number of chakras is correct? Is there even a correct number? Cyndi Dale, author of the new Llewellyn's Complete Book of Chakras, explains.

Every few months, for about three weeks, the planet Mercury goes retrograde, appearing to move backwards in the sky.

Bernie Ashman, astrologer and author of the new How to Survive Mercury Retrograde (And Venus and Mars, Too), provides some great ways to navigate this potentially frustrating time period.
