Your Horoscope for the Week of August 19, 2019

Leave the high-stakes drama behind as the sun and Venus shift into methodical Virgo this week. Tidy up, refine and polish recent creations or romance. Cut loose thoughts, habits, or people that don’t amplify the best version of you. Most importantly, attend to your mind/body connection; settle racing thoughts by creating a simple ritual you can adhere to, to begin your day in a mindful way. Read on to discover what’s in store for your sign during the week of August 19 through to August 25, 2019, and double down by getting to know your rising sign.

Aries | Aries rising

Your fiery enthusiasm often sees you out in front Aries, yet sometimes you charge through your day without abandon and miss special moments. Sidestep life’s speeding tickets this week and try to be one with each moment. Develop a ritual to ground your actions in a way that encourages presence. Try savoring every sensual experience from opening your eyes in the morning, to your shower, to your daily coffee/chai/green juice. Smell its aroma, taste its flavor, feel it as you sip and notice your body buzz as it wakes up into the day. Continuing the theme from the last few weeks, it’s also a good time to share your creative ideas in a big way. Tuesday is the day to aim high and take your best shot. Launch or connect with a media platform or person that inspires and resonates with you.

Taurus | Taurus rising

You’re a lover of pleasure and, this week, the sun and your ruling planet Venus moves into your sphere of romance so—if you’re single—get to mingling and tidy up your dating profile. If partnered, focus clearly communicate your language of love so your needs can be met. It’s all about the details under Virgo’s fastidious light, so pay extra attention to what you’re doing to bring joy by pursuing your personal interests. DIY slow foods like sprouting, fermenting or even trying your hand at making bread—healthy and nutritious could serve as a meditative past time that also tastes great. This last quarter moon phase is prime time to let go of activities that aren’t serving you and refine what is.

Gemini | Gemini rising

This week continues on the theme; ‘Home is where the heart is’ for you as the sun and Venus take up residence in your zone of hearth and family. As active Mars is also in the sign of Virgo, you can make the most of this earthy and practical energy with a major stock take and edit of accumulated gadgets. Get out your tool kit or call a handy person to repair anything you’ve been avoiding around the homestead. Or tap into your practical side and work some magic with a makeover. It doesn’t need to be your perfect vision of a luxe pad, sometimes it’s those extra touches and small details that make a difference. Virgo is associated with simple health and exercise so get moving this week, consider trying your hand at cooking your own meals, or just add a few superfoods to your breakfast each day to start the morning right.

Ashley Graham Posted a Pic Showing Off Her Stretch Marks, and People Are Loving It

Ashley Graham is currently pregnant with her first child, as the world learned last Wednesday (August 14), when she shared the news on Instagram. “Nine years ago today, I married the love of my life,” Graham wrote with a video of her and her husband being adorable. “It has been the best journey with my favorite person in the world! Today, we are feeling so blessed, grateful and excited to celebrate with our GROWING FAMILY! Happy anniversary, @mrjustinervin ❤️ Life is about to get even better. 😘”

As it tends to happen during pregnancy, Graham’s body is changing as the baby grows—and she’s clearly excited about the process: On Sunday (August 18), she posted a nude photo of herself to Instagram, showing off some stretch marks. “Same same but a little different,” she wrote in the caption.

Other celebrity friends were here for her post: “❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️,” Lily Aldridge commented. Makeup artist Katie Jane Hughes dropped in three two-heart emojis. Even Dr. Pimple Popper got in on the emoji shower: “💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼💥💥💥”

Fans were also excited to see Graham’s pic: “I freaking love you for this… ” one wrote. “This is me, what I look like. Fabulous empowering amazing beautiful fearless!!!”

Graham’s shown off her body-IRL to fans before on Instagram before, and she’s long been an advocate for body positivity of all kinds. “I’m using my body to let other women know that imperfections are OK. That cellulite, rolls, curves, all of it, things that jiggle that shouldn’t be jiggling, it’s OK,” she told Glamour in 2015.

Or, as she captioned another iconic pic, “I workout. I do my best to eat well. I love the skin I’m in. And I’m not ashamed of a few lumps, bumps or cellulite.. and you shouldn’t be either. #beautybeyondsize #lovetheskinyourein.”

During pregnancy or otherwise, we’re here for all of the positivity and realness Graham has to share, whenever she wants to share it.

Selena Gomez, Jennifer Lopez, and Other Celebs Sign Powerful Open Letter to Latinx Community

More than 200 Latinx celebrities, activists, and other prominent public figures—including Selena Gomez, Jennifer Lopez, and Eva Longoria—joined forces to sign and publish an open letter to the Latinx community on Friday following ongoing ICE raids, the continuing separation of families at the U.S./Mexico border, and the recent mass shooting in El Paso.

The letter, titled “Querida Familia Latina,” or “Dear Latinx Family,” and written in both Spanish and English, was published in The New York Times, El Nuevo Herald, El Diario, and La Opinión, on Friday, August 16. According to a press release, it was authored by actresses America Ferrera, Eva Longoria, Diane Guerrero, and Olga Segura, director Alex Martinez Kondracke, and activist Mónica Ramírez. Their overall message is one of love, solidarity, and action, and they call on the public to speak up against hate, donate resources as possible to organizations that support the Latinx community, and “hold our leaders accountable.”

“If you are feeling terrified, heartbroken and defeated by the barrage of attacks on our community, you are not alone,” it begins. “We have been smeared by political rhetoric and murdered in violent hate crimes. We have been separated from our families and have watched our children caged. We have been targeted with mass shootings and mass ICE raids meant to terrify us, squash our hope, and break our spirits.”

“But, we will not be broken. We will not be silenced. We will continue to denounce any hateful and inhumane treatment of our community,” the letter continues. “We will demand dignity and justice.”

The letter addresses the Latinx community directly before calling upon its allies for support. “Though real pain and fear are sweeping through our communities, we remain powerful. The indignities and cruelty we have endured will never change the truth that the contributions we make to this country are invaluable. Our humanity must be respected. And, we won’t stop organizing for ourselves, our children, and for the soul of this nation.

“To our allies who feel our community’s pain, we need you. We cannot make change without your voices and action. We call on you to speak out loudly against hate, to contribute your resources to organizations that support our community, and to hold our leaders accountable.”

It closes with a vision for the future: “We ask you to join us in building a better country where we are all safe and valued. May we turn this time of despair into a time of action. May our love for one another be the guiding light in these dark times.”

Signatories include Rosario Dawson, Salma Hayek Pinault, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Zoe Saldana, Wilmer Valderrama, Diego Luna, Ricky Martin, as well as activists Dolores Huerta and Teresa Romero.

Brooklyn 99 star Melissa Fumero also signed.

As did Jane the Virgin‘s Gina Rodriguez.

On Friday, Ferrera also appeared on MSNBC to discuss why it’s important to come together right now, despite what can seem like a constant barrage of terrible news.

Sophie Turner Wore $56 Bike Shorts With Louis Vuitton Sneakers Worth Your Rent

The bike shorts trend shows no signs of cooling down this summer, especially not after Sophie Turner was spotted once again sporting the look while out and about New York City with her husband, Joe Jonas. The Queen in the North also reclaimed the high-low throne, completing the look with a pair of white Louis Vuitton sneakers worth approximately your rent.

Turner was photographed walking hand-in-hand with Jonas on the streets of Manhattan on Friday, August 16, ahead of his 30th birthday celebration (at which, by the way, she looked incredible in the same dress Taylor Swift wore to the 2016 Vanity Fair Oscars party).

Check out the look for yourself, below:

We stan an affordable A-list wardrobe pick, and Turner’s high-waist Alo Yoga bike shorts are currently available for $56—which is fairly budget friendly, as far as celebrity wardrobes go. They’ve become something of a cult-favorite pick for their comfort and streamlined look.

Turner’s done a few other high-low looks over the summer: In June, for example, she was captured by paparazzi wearing a $25 Dickies T-shirt, mules from Mango, and Celine bag. (Sister-in-law Priyanka Chopra, it should be noted, has also proven herself a total pro at high-low combos.)

It’s not the first time Tuner’s opted for bike shorts, either. Earlier this month, she was seen in another pair while out with Chopra in Miami. Though she wasn’t wearing Louis Vuitton on that particular occasion, she did pair the shorts with a checkered shirt and white sneakers again. It’s a wonderfully low-key summer uniform—and a nice change from the standard T-shirt and jeans combo, should you be looking for one. P.S.

Chrissy Teigen’s Lips Got Crazy-Swollen Thanks to Altitude Sickness, Apparently

Chrissy Teigen rarely shies away from sharing updates about her personal life on social media—and over the weekend, she let her followers know about the reaction she suffered after flying from Los Angeles to Utah for the wedding of her friends Meghan Mackenzie and Luke Dillon. In a series of tweets, Teigen explained the condition is called angioedema, which she believes is due to altitude sickness. Not only did it cause her mouth to feel like it was “about to explode,” but photos show her bottom lip swollen to almost twice the normal size.

According to Mayo Clinic, angioedema causes the deeper layers in your skin to swell as a result of an accumulation of fluid and usually affects loose tissue areas like the eyes and mouth.

“Very upset and saddened that my own birth state, Utah, has chosen to poison me with terrible altitude sickness,” Teigen first tweeted on Saturday, August 16.

She followed that up with a close-up photo of her swollen mouth. “Did u know angioedema can be triggered from altitude sickness? Learn something new every day! My lip about to explode. Goodbye world,” she added.

Teigen also described her lip as “so big it’s shiny and hard like glass.”

But, in true Chrissy Teigen fashion, the Cravings author made light of the situation by joking with her friends. “This is premeditated murder if you ask me,” she tweeted.

9 TV Shows and Movies to Watch the Week of August 18, 2019

From the new season of 13 Reasons Why to new documentaries and comedy specials, this week’s slate of TV shows and movies is robust, interesting, and, in some cases, quite compelling. So go ahead and cancel your weekday evening plans, because you’ll need the free time to binge-watch as much as possible.

Below, all the best TV shows and movies to earmark for this week.

The Righteous Gemstones: Per HBO, this new comedy series “tells the story of a world-famous televangelist family with a long tradition of deviance, greed and charitable work.” It stars John Goodman, Danny McBride, Edi Patterson, Adam Devine, Cassidy Freeman, Tony Cavalero, Tim Baltz and Greg Alan Williams. 10 P.M. ET on HBO

I Ship It: Season two of this delightful series, about a fan-girl who uproots her life to become a writer’s assistant on her favorite TV show, kicks off tonight. 9:30 P.M. ET on The CW

Simon Amstell: Set Free: The British, openly gay comedian tackles love, egos, and intimacy in this standup special for Netflix. Streaming on Netflix

The Flay List: Bobby Flay and his daughter, Sophie, scour New York City for the best local eats in this new reality series. 10:30 P.M. ET on Food Network

Burn: The official description for this new thriller film sounds so creepy, and I’m 100 percent in: “Burn follows a lonely, unstable gas station attendant Melinda (Tilda Cobham-Hervey), tired of being overshadowed by her more confident, outgoing co-worker Sheila (Suki Waterhouse). When the gas station is held at gunpoint by Billy (Josh Hutcherson), a desperate man in need of quick cash, Melinda finds an opportunity to make a connection with the robber, regardless of who gets hurt.” In theaters

Watch Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello Rehearse their Steamy “Señorita” Music Video

Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello have been steaming up the summer with their chart-topping duet, “Señorita,” not to mention the smoldering video that goes with. The pair has also been sparking romance rumors as they’ve been spotted together doing everything from sipping coffee to kissing. Camila even professed her love for Shawn to celebrate his 21st birthday, calling him a “magic human.”

If you can’t stop shipping this super-talented couple, you’re in luck: As noted by Entertainment Tonight, Shawn released a three-minute clip of rehearsal videos from the filming of “Señorita,” and is it hot in here or is it just their chemistry?

In the video, we see the musicians stretching it out during warmup and rehearsing their choreography, which includes Shawn gracefully lifting Camila. The cutest part? The short but sweet moment of the pair playing patty-cake together during their downtime. The footage is pretty simple, but it’s totally adorable nonetheless.

Whether or not the two are actually in the midst of a summer romance, these behind-the-scenes clips at least show that Shawn and Camila are very good friends who are very comfortable with each other. After all, they’ve had plenty of shared history, and the two go way back.

It’s certainly been a busy summer for Shawn and Camila. They’ve been spotted together many times as Shawn travels the U.S. on tour. Romance rumors first began during the 4th of July holiday, when the singers were seen holding hands. They attended a Blink-182 concert in late July and shared a kiss during Shawn’s birthday celebration in New York City.

Of course, we haven’t heard anything official from Shawn or Camila themselves, so until we do, this is all just ~speculation~ over the state of their relationship. But that doesn’t mean we can’t watch this super-steamy video on repeat, which is definitely what we’ll be doing for the rest of the summer.

Taylor Swift Fans Already Have So Many Theories About the Official ‘Lover’ Track List

Being a Taylor Swift fan can often feel like working a second job as a private investigator. Swift’s got a, well, reputation for dropping Easter eggs in music videos, Instagram posts, and even outfits to clue fans in about her next steps. Her cryptic hints have gone into overdrive during the Lover era, with fans counting palm trees and jacket pins to decode her seventh album—and the list of potential hidden meanings got even longer when Swift released the Lover track list.

Swift posted three back-to-back Instagram posts revealing the official track list for Lover on Friday, August 16. In a series of posts with her new era’s cotton-candy aesthetic, Swift listed all 18 track titles for the upcoming album, her longest record to date. Naturally, the information embedded in the song titles sent fans spinning—once they could read what the faint title fonts actually said.

Some of the song titles confirmed theories fans have discussed since the first single of the Lover era, “Me!,” dropped in April. “Me!” includes the lyric, “There’s a lot of cool chicks out there.” In the music video, the camera pans to a wall hung with paintings of baby chicks surrounding a painting of iconic country band the Dixie Chicks. Fans took it as a sign that the Dixie Chicks would appear on the album; the Dixie Chicks and Taylor Swift further fueled the fire by sending cryptic tweets to one another after the video premiered.
