Your weekly horoscope is here. Times are tough right now, but you got this.

Read on to discover what’s in store for your sign during the week of March 30 through to April 5, 2020, and double down by getting to know your rising sign.

Aries | Aries rising

Mars, your ruler, is moving into your social sector while your local environment is also being stimulated. This period has potential for connectivity so it may be time to open up a Zoom account if you haven’t already, or give your FaceTime a daily workout. Doing things differently never held an Aries back because you thrive on challenges, so lead the charge by organizing some upbeat group video calls or hosting a virtual happy hour or dinner party. If you belong to a common interest group, it’s especially important to keep everyone in touch right now.

Taurus | Taurus rising

This is your month to take action at work. If one door seems locked or has closed altogether, take the initiative to knock or open another. Consider stepping up to lead in some way, even in the short term. Use the skills you know you have but might not get to show in the office day after day. In terms of that community project, you are voted most likely to get the ball rolling. You understand how important simple things are—breaking and sharing bread, for example—to feeling safe and stable. Go forth and (virtually) organize.

Gemini | Gemini rising

Venus, the planet of love and beauty, is gracing your sign this month turning the dial up on your attractiveness and sparkling charm. This planet is social and so are you, so make sure you keep up connections. Perhaps you start a series go Instagram Lives or an IGTV show. Or you may want to document your experience more artistically so the rest of us can reflect and share our own with you. At the very least, this is your goddess month so enjoy the cosmic glow-up.

‘Tiger King’: Cardi B Wants to Free Joe Exotic From Jail By Starting A GoFundMe

Everyone’s obsessed with Tiger King right now, especially Cardi B.

In fact, the rapper is very much team Joe Exotic after watching Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem, and Madness, the most-talked about new docuseries on Netflix.

The “Money” hitmaker has been serving up some amazing quarantine content, including her viewing of the bonkers seven-part series, which follows the story of the eccentric zoo-owner who was arrested and is currently serving a 22-year prison sentence for two counts of murder for hire and other charges.

In a nutshell, Tiger King follows Joseph Maldonado-Passage (aka Joe Exotic), an unregulated zoo owner in rural Oklahoma, and the story of his epic feud with Carole Baskin, the founder of Big Cat Rescue and animal-rights activist. Then, in a wild turn of events, Maldonado-Passage ends up in jail for allegedly hiring an assassin to murder Baskin (don’t worry, she’s alive and well).

On Thursday night, March 27, Cardi live-tweeted her binge and revealed that she doesn’t believe Maldonado-Passage should be in jail, despite his conviction. The rapper said she’s planning to set up a GoFundMe account to free him from prison. “He shall be free,” she wrote on Twitter.

“They did Joe so dirty over and over again,” the rapper added.

Cardi also isn’t the biggest fan of Baskin, like many viewers who couldn’t really tell the difference between Big Cat Rescue and the zoos she rallies against. She even asked her followers to respond with their thoughts. “Who you think is more wrong,” she asked. “Narcissist joe? Or Greedy Carol? And why?”

Cardi is obviously not the only celebrity who’s obsessed with Tiger King. Everyone from Jared Leto to Chrissy Teigen and Kim Kardashian cannot stop talking about the true-crime series. Leto even dressed up as Maldonado-Passage for his watch party and I’ll never recover.

Other stars, including Dax Shepard, hope to be cast in a future biopic or series based on Tiger King.

They may just get their chance. According to Deadline, Kate McKinnon is set to star and executive produce a limited TV series in development at UCP. Based on the podcast Joe Exotic: Tiger King, the miniseries will follow Baskin (McKinnon) in her quest to take down Maldonado-Passage.

It sounds like the purrrfect casting if you ask me. Hopefully, Cardi will make a cameo appearance.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Are Reportedly ‘Committed to Having Another Baby’

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are reportedly planning to expand their family in the near(ish) future.

As the royal couple settles into their new Los Angeles home, a source told Us Weekly that the former senior royals want to try for a second child “pretty soon.”

“They’ll be trying in earnest pretty soon,” a source told the publication. “They just want to get firmly settled into their new surroundings first and give Archie as much attention as they can.”

So yeah, 10-month-old Archie will probably have to wait a bit for a little brother or sister. “They’re still enjoying these precious early days with him,” the source added. “They’re committed to having another baby, but don’t want to put too much pressure on the situation.”

This speculation comes after the news that Markle and Prince Harry recently moved from their new home in Canada to Markle’s hometown of Los Angeles.

Relocating to Los Angeles does make a lot of sense for the couple. Not only does Markle’s mom, Doria Ragland, live in L.A., but the former Suits star has recently picked up her Hollywood career with a new Disney gig. She’s also reportedly considering relaunching her lifestyle blog, The Tig.

It’s unclear what else is next for the couple, but sources told People that the family is currently living in a “secluded compound” and are hunkering down amid the COVID-19 crisis.

On March 18, Markle and Prince Harry addressed the pandemic via Instagram to encourage their followers to come together.

“These are uncertain times,” they wrote. “And now, more than ever, we need each other. We need each other for truth, for support, and to feel less alone during a time that can honestly feel quite scary… We are all in this together, and as a global community we can support each other through this process—and build a digital neighbourhood that feels safe for every one of us.”

This ‘Bored’ Sports Broadcaster Filmed A Play-By-Play of His Dogs Racing to Eat Their Dinner and It’s Brilliant

People are finding all sorts of interesting ways to stay busy while social distancing, but this sports broadcaster’s play-by-play of his pups racing to eat their food is exactly what we all need right now.

Though many sporting events have been canceled and postponed across the world due to the coronavirus pandemic—including the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games—BBC sports broadcaster Andrew Cotter found a new way to keep doing what he loves.

The clip, which was posted to Twitter on Friday, March 27, shows his two Labradors, Mabel and Olive, racing to see who can finish off a bowl of dog food the quickest. However, it was Cotter’s colorful commentary that made the footage so brilliant.

“I was bored,” Cotter captioned the recording, which has garnered over five million views in just 24 hours.

In the video, he put all his skill and experience to good use by describing his dogs’ mealtime as though it was a competition. It featured all the elements of a real sporting event and there was even a sassy person in the “crowd” telling him to “get on with it” at the beginning of the race.

“You can see the contrast in styles. Mabel’s heavy tail use. Happy to be alive. Everything’s amazing. Olive more steady, wasting little energy,” Cotter commented before delivering the best line of the video, “Focused, relentless, tasting absolutely nothing.”

You can watch the video for yourself below:

In the end, the winner was Olive, who finished her bowl first. “What a final we’ve had here. Great rivals, but great friends,” Cotter concluded. “Join us again tomorrow live coverage of a snooze on the sofa.”

The clip has been so well received online that people are urging Cotter to release a sequel.

They’ve also been thanking him for providing them with this feel-good content.

It’s safe to say people are obsessed. Here’s hoping there are more funny dog videos like this one to come from Cotter. We deserve it.

‘I Swore Off Social Media—Until Now’

I live in London, and my mother lives in my hometown of Bray, outside Dublin. I’ve been trying to get her to join FaceTime for years, and this week she finally did. Our first attempt was a conversation with her perfectly groomed eyebrows (thankfully, done just in time for lockdown), but now I see her smiley face every day, just for a check-in before she does the gardening or I binge the next box set.

Since I’ve lived in London, I’ve never even really laid eyes on my neighbors, let alone known their names. But now our neighborhood “Nextdoor” app chat is thriving, and we’re helping one another. I’ve joined every platform out there to stay connected with people: Zoom, Houseparty, TikTok. I am on them all.

I’ve fallen in love with online all over again, and it feels so good. We’ve both grown up. Although my joining TikTok reminds me of when my mother got Instagram. I’m a millennial trying to be part of Gen Z, and I don’t care! It’s silly, it’s fun, and it makes me laugh.

We want you to share YOUR love and relationship stories from COVID-19 with us. Here’s how…

Last weekend I got tipsy on the Houseparty app from the comfort of my kitchen… popping into different “rooms” and spending time with friends I hadn’t spoken to in years and living in all corners of the world. We had a sing-along, we talked about real-life issues, and we played virtual board games. I’ve been physically in contact only with my boyfriend, but I’ve talked to more people than ever. I am more alone than ever, but I don’t feel lonely, as there is a whole community out there that I’m part of. That I want to be part of.

Life works in mysterious ways. The one thing that made me feel disconnected for so long has connected me more than I ever knew it could. I really hope out of this dark time we’ll see a real catalyst for permanent change, to be nicer to each other. I would, still, however like to wake up and see my boyfriend’s face in front of me instead of his phone. And if we can be nicer to each other online, anything can happen.

If you want to share YOUR COVID-19 relationship story with us, write to us or record a voice memo and email it to love@glamour.com. Tell us where you are, what relationship you’re talking about and whether you want to stay anonymous or not.

Grey’s Anatomy’s Showrunner and Ellen Pompeo React to The Shortened Season Due to Coronavirus

Grey’s Anatomy season 16 is coming to an end sooner than expected. On March 27, ABC announced that the medical drama will not resume production on the final four episodes of Season 16, meaning the season will end Thursday, April 9, with episode 21 serving as the finale.

After learning that the current season of Grey’s Anatomy will officially be cut short due to the coronavirus pandemic, Ellen Pompeo and showrunner Krista Vernoff took to Twitter to reassure upset fans the impromptu finale will still be a “satisfying” one.

Though some fans are disappointed, the good news is the new finale episode, titled “Put on a Happy Face,” will be jam-packed with drama and a new potential love story. According to the description, “Hayes asks Meredith a surprising question, Owen makes a shocking discovery,” and “Link tries to convince Amelia to take it easy during the final stage of her pregnancy.”

Plus, Vernoff promised fans that any lingering question will be answered next season in a new Twitter statement. (The series had already been renewed for Season 17.) “We are disappointed that we don’t get to complete our storytelling this season,” she tweeted on March 27. “The good news? 1621 plays like a satisfying finale! It’s not where we planned to end, but it’s beautiful & the questions that linger we will answer next year. #GreysAnatomy #StayHome”

Ellen Pompeo, who has played Dr. Meredith Grey for the past 15 years, also reacted to the show’s shortened season via Twitter.

“When you hear the full season of #GreysAnatomy is not going to air,” she tweeted with a throwback pic of Meredith.

Although clearly not ecstatic about the news, the actor is looking on the bright side. For one, Killing Eve, starring her former co-star Sandra Oh, is returning earlier than planned!

Pompeo even teased a fan after they asked if this means the season finale will not be “full of people dying.”

“That’s what that means,” she quipped.

Grey’s Anatomy is just one of many TV and movie productions that shut down in an effort to stop the spread of COVID-19. They’re also among a number of medical dramas that donated supplies to hospitals amid the pandemic.

“At Grey’s Anatomy, we have a back-stock of gowns and gloves which we are donating as well,” Vernoff said in a statement to Good Morning America on March 19. “We are all overwhelmed with gratitude for our healthcare workers during this incredibly difficult time, and in addition to these donations, we are doing our part to help them by staying home.”

Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream Review: Worth the Money

Every year, when the cold weather finally begins to wear and spring really starts to bloom, two things happen to me: my family in the Philippines implores us to come and visit them (our spring is their summertime), and I dust off my Brazilian Bum Bum Cream. While it’s impossible for me to spontaneously book a two-week trip to the Philippines (especially in the time of a global pandemic), I can reach for my big yellow tub o’ cream and feel like summer is truly within reach.

I’ve always had a soft spot for tropical ingredients you might not find in popular beauty products. As a kid, my mom rubbed virgin coconut oil into my hair, massaged papaya soap into my skin, and slathered seaweed masks onto my face. She’d swear that these ingredients were the real secret to beauty products that worked—not the kind you’d find at your local drugstores in the States. It should come as no surprise, then, that I’ve been a loyal Sol de Janeiro customer for a few years now. I was first introduced to the brand by its Coco Cabana Cream (imagine coconut lotion teaming up with water cream) and eventually made my way to its marquee product, the Brazilian Bum Bum Cream.

If you can’t tell by the name, the product (pronounced Boom Boom in case you were wondering) is advertised as your butt’s best friend. In addition to being a great lotion, it’s supposed to firm and tighten areas that may have cellulite or dimples and give an all-around toned appearance to your skin. I was intrigued by this, mainly because my butt is not, in fact, soft like a baby’s bottom—that is until I met this cream.

First, let’s get one thing straight: This is not your normal body butter. When you apply it, like a popsicle on a hot summer sidewalk, it melts into your skin and leaves a dewy, velvety finish. You know those body butters that make you afraid to sit down after applying, for fear of leaving a greasy stain on your leather Article couch?? Not the Bum Bum Cream. This leaves you feeling perfectly moisturized without any residue for hours on end. Plus, there’s a very subtle sheen to the formula—so you feel like silk and look like it, too.

When you first open it, you’re hit with an intense and pleasant smell. People describe this cream as “vacation in a tub” and they’re not wrong—it smells like a vanilla bean ordered a margarita and then lit some Palo Santo. That’s because the lotion is infused with all kinds of delicious ingredients pulled right out of a Rio de Janeiro travel brochure. It’s blended with antioxidants from Amazonian fruit, coconut oil, and (the star ingredients) cupuaçu butter and Guarana. The butter is full of fatty-acids to lock in moisture, while the Guarana is loaded with caffeine—making it the Bum Bum Cream’s main firming agent. You’re supposed to apply it in small, circular motions over areas you want to tighten-up, like your bum, or your thighs, arms, and anywhere else.

Many reviewers love the cream for its firming qualities alone, and while I can’t say that it’s wiped away any skin dimples, that’s not why I keep coming back. I just love how hydrated it leaves me feeling (without aggravating my sensitive, eczema-laden skin). The only other lotion that has a similar smoothing effect is Augustinus Bader’s The Body Cream, which costs for a cool $165. Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream on the other hand is $45. And little goes such a long way, it lasts you forever. So, if you don’t want to break the bank for an all-over cream, buy the Bum Bum. Trust me.
