Raydene Salinas Hansen/Rider-Waite deck

This week is about some fast-paced change coming everyone’s way. The Wheel of Fortune card is a powerful totem of transformation and asks you to pick one pivot point in your life to focus on. The wheel will start to turn, swiftly gain momentum and create a ripple effect across your whole life. This time next Monday, you might not feel quite the same!

ARIES: THE CHARIOT

image

Raydene Salinas Hansen/Rider-Waite deck

Any travel-related plans or activities brewing or happening this week, Aries? The Chariot hints you’re either on the move, planning a move, or dealing with something to do with your personal transportation. Keep at it, and keep going, because this is exactly what you’re meant to be doing. We all need to take control of our literal physical location and direction in life, and you’re on the case.

TAURUS: THE MAGICIAN

image

Raydene Salinas Hansen/Rider-Waite deck

You’re in the mood to select one of your talents or strengths and make more of it, career-wise or financially. The Magician is the tarot’s entrepreneur and advises you to start something solo, or as a side-venture–something which you’re good at and others are willing to pay for. Making money is one of your top favorite things to do, and you know how to commodify a talent. Get to it.

GEMINI: TEN OF CUPS

image

Raydene Salinas Hansen/Rider-Waite deck

You’re in for a very romantic week ahead, Gemini, so I hope you’re in the mood for love. If you’re single, look out for a Water sign (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) and if you’re attached, then arrange a particularly magical date night. Ideally, make this happen someplace around water–be that the ocean, a lake or river, a pool or spa, even a hot tub! This card wants to make some waves in your love life.

CANCER: TWO OF SWORDS

image

Raydene Salinas Hansen/Rider-Waite deck

A decision hangs over you, which you’ve long avoided making, and this week is crunch time! The Two of Swords asks you to look at all the possible outcomes of this choice–the good, bad and ugly. Then, make an informed decision and execute it promptly–no more procrastinating. Move on with confidence because you ARE going to do the right thing, and momentum will swiftly be regained.

LEO: THE EMPEROR

image

Raydene Salinas Hansen/Rider-Waite deck

The Emperor is a power card, showing that if you focus your intentions, you can move mountains. You need to take ownership and responsibility for making your ambitions a reality–no one is going to do this for you (and you don’t want to share the limelight or rewards anyway!) Start boldly, then carry on, and the progress you can make will honestly astound you! A BIG week lies ahead, so make the most of every minute.

VIRGO: FOUR OF COINS

image

Raydene Salinas Hansen/Rider-Waite deck

We can all get into ruts we know we should move on from… and yet… well, it’s familiar, and you especially love your comfort zone. The Four of Coins asks you to identify such a stuck place in your life right now and bravely step away from it. You’ll feel immediately better, and new opportunity will almost immediately flow back into your life to replace whatever you were worried about losing.

LIBRA: FIVE OF SWORDS

image

Raydene Salinas Hansen/Rider-Waite deck

People can be such dicks, and this week, your nerves are reaching their very last shred. The Five of Swords shows you in conflict with people around you (conflict is Libran kryptonite, so this especially is hard for you to deal with.) Maybe it’s with family, friends or colleagues, but whatever it is, it’s been tough. The key here is to let the negative feelings go. Some battles cannot be won–they just drag you down. Identify if and where this is happening, and cut ties, yield, walk away, call a truce–whatever you need to do to move away from the drama.

SCORPIO: KING OF SWORDS

image

Raydene Salinas Hansen/Rider-Waite deck

A total snack of an Air sign might be sashaying into your love landscape this week, Scorpio (hopefully it’s a Gem because you two have especially hot chemistry, but it could also be a Libra or Aquarius too.) Sparks will fly, you’ll feel like you’ve known them forever, and the talks will last long into the night. This is a person who’s an intellectual match for you, and even might feel like someone you have to work to impress through your banter. So enjoy the verbal sparring and whatever else comes with it ;).

SAGITTARIUS: SIX OF SWORDS

image

Raydene Salinas Hansen/Rider-Waite deck

Departure of some sort awaits you this week, Sagittarius–where are you thinking of heading off to? It doesn’t have to be a physical place–it could be a new role or relationship. The Six of Swords sweeps in when it’s time to move on, and you’re readier than you currently believe. So, pack your bags (metaphorically or otherwise) with confidence, this IS the right move.

CAPRICORN: THREE OF COINS

image

Raydene Salinas Hansen/Rider-Waite deck

You’re the zodiac’s hustler, and there’s no one more ambitious or conscientious than you. Which is an especially great trait to have this week, because the Three of Coins shows that more responsibility, maybe a raise or promotion too, is headed your way. Others have noted your dedication and talent, and think you’re ready to step up a notch. Put yourself in the pathway of opportunity, and rewards will follow!

AQUARIUS: KNIGHT OF CUPS

image

Raydene Salinas Hansen/Rider-Waite deck

Whatever your love life sitch is, you can make it even more warm n’ fuzzy this week. If you’re single, head somewhere new and exciting, someplace with a creative edge, and that ranks high on the social charts (has everyone you know ‘grammed it? Great, go there.) If you’re in a relationship, then plan a surprise for your partner, someplace new that neither of you has been to before. “New” is the key word this week, and if you embrace it, then love will flow in.

PISCES: TEMPERANCE

image

Raydene Salinas Hansen/Rider-Waite deck

Temperance is a powerful tarot card that sweeps in when we’re unbalanced in some way. Where have you been overdoing it? It’s time to regain your equilibrium and come back to the center. You may have been working too hard (or not enough), investing too much in one particular person (or avoiding someone else), partying 25/7 (or hibernating away some beautiful weekends.) Identify where there’s an overspill and adjust your priorities to even it out.

Best Shark Movies of All Time

As you know if you’ve watched even 10 minutes of Shark Week, sharks aren’t *actually* that interested in eating or attacking humans. But don’t tell that to Hollywood, an industry that is all about portraying sharks as merciless psychopaths who are fixated on killing people for literally no reason—usually in the ocean, but sometimes in the air (think Sharknado) or on the beach (hi, Sand Shark). On that delightful note, here’s a list of the highly inaccurate but extremely entertaining shark movies that have been keeping people out of the water for decades.

1. Jaws

Jaws has the fine distinction of being not only the greatest shark movie ever made, but also one of the greatest horror movies ever made. No matter that fake-shark technology has advanced about a million percent over the past 40 years; Jaws is still terrifying enough that you wouldn’t want to watch it on a beach vacation. And it definitely helps that John Williams’ score is so iconic that it conjures doom no matter where you are when you hear it.

STREAM IT

2. The Shallows

The premise of this movie is ridiculous—beautiful girl goes surfing alone in a secluded cove, ends up on a rock fighting for survival before the tide comes in—but the execution is flawless. Every single piece of Blake Lively’s wardrobe becomes useful in her fight against the murderous great white that wants to eat her for dessert (a whale carcass is dinner), and Blake’s costar, Steven Seagull, truly deserved an Oscar.

STREAM IT

3. Deep Blue Sea

In this 1999 treasure, scientists accidentally engineer shark brains so that sharks are smarter and more dangerous, thus making it problematic when they start escaping from the research pens and attacking people. This movie is recommended for those of you who saw Snakes on a Plane and thought, “Hmm, I wonder what it’s like to watch Samuel L. Jackson fight sharks instead.”

STREAM IT

4. Open Water

This horror show is partially based on the true story of a couple left to fend for themselves in the open ocean after the rest of their scuba diving expedition forgot them. What happened to the real people remains a mystery, but Open Water‘s characters meet a very, um, definitive end.

STREAM IT

5. Sharknado

Say what you will about the quality of this cult favorite, but there’s no question that it revived the public’s interest in intentionally bad made-for-TV movies. The title says it all, but just to make it super clear: Los Angeles gets hit by a cyclone that causes shark-filled water spouts all over the city. You’ll laugh until you remember that the movie was such a hit it spawned a zillion sequels.

STREAM IT

6. The Reef

After their boat capsizes, a group of friends attempt to rescue themselves by swimming through open water to get to the nearest land. Unfortunately that water turns out to be home to a shark who’s not that willing to share his territory with these human swimmers, and chaos ensues. And that’s why you never agree to get on a boat!

STREAM IT

7. Mega Shark Versus Giant Octopus

Is this movie bad? Yes. But does it feature a humongous shark fighting a humongous octopus? Yes, so I fail to see the problem.

SHOP NOW

8. Shark Night

This film asks the question, “What if sharks lived in saltwater lakes and ate people for sport?” The answer is blood. Lots of blood.

STREAM IT

9. Ghost Shark

The only thing scarier than a living shark is a dead shark that comes back to life and decides to eat you. In the titular ghost shark’s defense, though, it is only dead because a human decided to torture and kill it. Its victims kind of had it coming, you know?

SHOP NOW

10. Blue Water, White Death

Finally, something a *little* bit less sensational. This 1971 documentary follows the quest to film a great white shark underwater for the first time. The doc doesn’t exactly diminish the shark’s reputation as a killer, but it’s an interesting tale nonetheless.

STREAM IT

11. Sand Sharks

It’s sharks, but they swim through sand instead of water. Makes perfect sense.

STREAM IT

12. 47 Meters Down

In this 2017 gem, two sisters (hi, Mandy Moore!!) are on vacation in Mexico when they decide to go shark diving with some sketchy dudes they meet in a bar. Naturally, the chain holding their shark cage breaks, so they get stuck—wait for it—47 meters down and must fight off the bends, faulty air tanks, and yes, a giant shark.

STREAM IT

13. The Meg

This movie features Jason Statham fighting a two-million-year-old megalodon! It is literally perfect. Also, it’s based on a book that has sequels, which means this could end up being a franchise. God bless.

STREAM IT

14. Avalanche Sharks

In case the title didn’t make it clear, Avalanche Sharks is about a bunch of sharks atop a snowy mountain who spend their time murdering skiers. And watching it made me realize that the best genre of shark movie is “SURPRISE, SHARKS ARE ON ON LAND NOW” movies. We are not worthy of this creative genius.

STREAM IT

15. Zombie Shark: The Swimming Dead

Wow, what did we do to deserve this? This being a zombie shark movie, of course. But don’t get it twisted: the premise of Zombie Shark isn’t that sharks are turning into zombies. It’s that shark bites are turning humans into zombies. It’s the genre mash-up we never knew we needed.

SHOP NOW

16. Bait

First of all, this movie was released in 3D, which yes please. But also the plot is so extra: a group of hot people are chilling in a grocery store when a tsunami hits and floods the building. Unfortunately, a great white shark is washed into the store—ugh, hate when that happens—and proceeds to murder everyone.

STREAM IT

17. 47 Meters Down: Uncaged

Technically this movie isn’t out yet, but I already know it’s going to earn a place on this list. The plot? Some friends go diving in underwater ancient ruins (NEVER A GOOD IDEA), which are naturally inhabited by a bunch of blood-thirsty sharks that have just been waiting for some dumb humans to kill. Expect this one to hit theaters on August 16, 2019.

18. Malibu Shark Attack

Okay, so, take the plot of Bait but make it even more insane and you get Malibu Shark Attack. A group of sexy lifeguards get trapped in their station after a tsunami hits and unleashes a pack of…wait for it…”prehistoric goblin sharks.”

SHOP NOW

19. Toxic Shark

The only thing worse than going on a tropical couples’ retreat during which a shark rolls up and kills everyone? Discovering the *hard* way that said shark spews poisonous acid out of its mouth—a totally realistic thing that could definitely happen IRL, don’t question it!

STREAM IT

20. Ghost Shark 2: Urban Jaws

Kinda like Ghost Shark, only in a big city. As a reminder: our toothy friend is super pissed when a bunch of randoms kill him during a fishing trip, so he decides to become a ghost and come back for REVENGE—this time in New Zealand. Also, I’m genuinely dead at this picture, though not as dead as this shark.

Best ‘Big Little Lies’ Memes and Tweets

  • Another episode of Big Little Lies just dropped and social media delivered with a buncha lol tweets and memes.
  • FYI, spoilers about Sunday’s episode lie below. Don’t keep reading if you haven’t watched the episode and want to remain pure.

    First of all: SpOiLeRS from Sunday’s episode of Big Little Lies are coming atcha. Second of all, the episode was once again completely iconic—mostly thanks to Queen of My Life Meryl Streep ramping up her shade in ways I never thought possible. But to be quite honest the memes were even better than the show (kay that’s a lie, but it’s close!).

    How-ev-er, before we get to Sunday’s best tweets and memes (a bright light in the otherwise dank hellscape that is Twitter), here’s a brief recap of what happened on Big Little Lies: Bonnie’s mom shows up in town to stir the pot and dig into her marriage, Celeste discovers that her twins know Ziggy is secretly their brother, Ed accidentally finds out about Madeline’s affair and it’s heart-breaking, Renata’s husband Gordon gets hauled off to jail for some sort of finance bro crime, and Mary Louise (aka Queen Meryl) becomes obsessed with proving Perry’s innocence after she finds out about his abuse. In other words, a lot went down and Twitter is in its feelings.

    Honestly, sometimes Twitter is just the best. Emphasis on sometimes because as we all know it’s usually the absolute worst. On that note, bye while I start a petition to give Meryl an Emmy before the nominations even come out.

Why Prince Harry Told Meghan Markle to “Turn Around” at Trooping the Colour

  • The internet has been freaking out about a video of Prince Harry seemingly telling Meghan Markle to “turn around” at Trooping the Colour.
  • The video was silenced and edited to appear more dramatic, and the full video offers way more context about the moment in question.

    This weekend, the internet had what’s best described as a full blown meltdown about a video of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on the Buckingham Palace balcony during Trooping the Colour. In the video, Harry can seemingly be seen telling Meghan to “turn around,” and both Twitter and the media alike have been chatting non-stop about Meghan appearing somewhat upset during the interaction. Here’s one of the video clips that’s making the rounds:

    Before you start side-eyeing, keep in mind that this video doesn’t show the whole picture. Far from it. While lip readers conclude that Harry did, in fact, say “turn around…look” the second time Meghan looked at him, the first time he spoke to her was to say “yes, that’s right.” In other words, he appears to have been answering a question.

    And if you watch the full video with sound, it’s clear that Meghan was asking a question right before “God Save the Queen” started playing, and Harry asked her to turn around in time for the song to begin.

    So, perhaps the reason Meghan looks so serious wasn’t necessarily because of what Harry said—but because the National Anthem was beginning and everyone was assuming their “Official Royal” expressions.

    And for what it’s worth, a lot of royal fans aren’t here for the video being manipulated to make it look like Harry and Meghan were arguing.

    “Only they do not show it’s because the anthem would begin, and so Meg turns and gets serious,” one fan wrote. “They’re using this to say that Harry mistreated her, when in fact I think he told her that the hymn would begin and then she’d become like everyone else.”

    Another added, “Thank you for posting the actual video. The haters are twisting the video to say that Harry told her to turn around, and she wanted to cry.”

    The royal family haven’t responded to the buzz around this video and chances are they never will. But on Sunday, Kensington Palace did post a fully adorable photo of Harry and Archie, so there’s that!

Is OJ Simpson Khloe Kardashian’s Dad?

  • OJ Simpson has released a video addressing rumors that he had an affair with Kris Jenner and is secretly Khloé Kardashian’s father.
  • OJ says “the simple fact of the matter is she’s not mine.”

    First of all, ugh, this again? Despite this entire plot line being done and dusted on Keeping Up with the Kardashian, OJ Simpson has decided now is a good time to resurrect those tired rumors that he’s secretly Khloé Kardashian’s father due to an “alleged affair” (eye-roll) that he had with Kris Jenner. (Which, to be clear, never happened!).

    OJ hit up his new Twitter account (side note: what is life) to deny the persistent rumors that he’s secretly Khloé’s dad, saying “Bob Kardashian was like a brother to me. He was a great guy. He met and married Kris and they really had a great time together when they were together. Unfortunately, that ended. But never—and I want to stress never—in any way shape or form had I ever had any interest in Kris, romantically, sexually, and I never got any indication that she had any interest in me. So all of these stories are just bogus. Bad, you know, tasteless.”

    He also addressed the Khloé rumors directly, saying “Khloé, like all the girls I’m very proud of just like I know Bob would be if he was here. But the simple fact of the matter is she’s not mine.”

    Khloé has yet to respond to OJ’s Twitter video and something tells me she’ll opt out of partaking in this particular narrative.

Lady Gaga Kisses Married Musician Brian Newman Video

  • Lady Gaga kissed trumpet player Brian Newman on stage over the weekend, and fans are freaking out because he’s married.
  • Brian and Gaga are close friends and the kiss was “a playful, harmless part of her act.”

    Okay, so some sh*t went down during Lady Gaga’s Las Vegas residency show, and even though it was ~no big deal~ people are not okay. Basically, Gaga kissed her trumpet player Brian Newman, and um…he happens to be married.

    In a video posted to the Gaga Daily Twitter page, Gaga serenades Brian while holding his hand. Then she belts out the lyrics “Darling, kiss me” and goes ahead and does just that. To be clear, Gaga and Brian are just friends. In fact, they’re more like family.

    A source tells Us Weekly that “There is nothing to see here. Gaga is a performer, and it was a playful, harmless part of her act. She and Brian have had an incredible friendship for years and see each other as family.”

    But that hasn’t stopped Twitter from absolutely losing their minds over this kiss, and repeatedly pointing out that Brian is married to Angie Pontani.

    “I know they are friends since…. Forever. But Christ’s sake, he [is] married!!! GAGA should behave better,” one fan tweeted, while others were quick to point out that “His wife was there” and that “He is kissing her too honey. It’s an act. A burlesque show at 2 a.m.”

    In other words, this wasn’t a big deal!

    And TBH, Gaga has always made it clear that her artistry comes with a lot of acting. After her much-debated “Shallow” performance with Bradley Cooper at the Oscars (which also caused fans to flip out), Gaga explained “People saw love and guess what? That’s what we wanted you to see.”

    MMMKAY, EVERYONE?

Kylie Jenner Shares New Stormi Pics for Father’s Day

  • Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott just shared a bunch of cute photos of their daughter Stormi for Father’s Day.
  • The couple are still very much together and are either engaged or super good at trolling people.

    Yesterday was Father’s Day so here’s hoping that you remembered to call up your dad and tell him how much he rules. Unless you were too busy trolling around Instagram to check out celebrity Father’s Day posts, in which case all is forgiven because Kylie Jenner’s tribute to Travis Scott was cute enough to forget your responsibilities over.

    Kylie shared a bunch of never-before-seen pics of Travis and their daughter Stormi to IG, along with the caption “Happy Father’s Day @travisscott 🖤 I love the love you share with our daughter. 🖤🖤 Thank you for all that you do.. today we celebrate you .. 🖤”

    Scroll through for all the pics, which include Stormi as an itty-bitty baby:

    Meanwhile, Travis also hit social media with a bunch of new Stormi content (aka the content you crave), including pics of her riding a horse, and of them sleeping together in a pile of stuffed animals. His caption? This pure cuteness: “The day mommy made me a daddy I couldn’t wait to spend everyday with u to conquer this planet.”

    You definitely already know this, but in case you aren’t up-to-date on all things Travis and Kylie, the pair are still living together in ye olde Calabasas, and are still trolling us with their maybe-engagement and maybe-wedding. All we really know is that they call each other “hubby” and “wifey” non-stop and that Kylie wears a ring on ~that~ finger, but the verdict is still out on their status.

There’s Backlash Over Charlotte and George Missing from Prince William’s Father’s Day Post

  • Kensington Palace’s Father’s Day post for Prince William didn’t include Princess Charlotte or Prince George.
  • Fans are calling out the Palace on Instagram and slamming them for rejecting William’s other kids—not to mention Kate Middleton’s dad.

    Happy Father’s Day to everyone except trolls who lurk on Instagram! The internet is currently somewhat upset over Kensington Palace’s IG post celebrating Father’s Day, which features pictures of Prince William with his son Prince Louis, and with his dad Prince Charles.

    Missing from the pics, however? Prince William’s other children Princess Charlotte and Prince George, not to mention Kate Middleton’s father Michael Middleton.

    “Royal Watchers” have taken it to the comments to question Kensington Palace excluding their faves, and honestly everyone’s being incredibly salty. “Apparently Kate doesn’t have a dad and William only has one child,” one person wrote, while another mused “KP made no effort at all in making this post. Where are pictures of him with his two other children? hm KP?”

    Eye-roll, but there’s more. Behold: “WAIT WHAT? Who posted this… you know you have 3 children.. and where is Kate’s father? Your family is so beautiful, you mean to tell me you can’t pose for one photo of the 3 kids and both the grandfathers?”

    Like…guys…obviously Prince William cares about all three of his children! And obviously Kate Middleton loves her dad—and if she had a private Instagram account he’d probably be all over it! Whoever runs Kensington Palace’s account, however—and I’m guessing not the actual royals—probably just chose a couple pics on the fly and went with it, so let’s all calm down like Taylor Swift would want.

Khloé Kardashian Still Mad About Tristan Thompson Jordyn Woods Cheating

Khloe KardashianInstagram

  • A new report shares that Khloé “never wants to see Jordyn again” after the Jordyn Woods/Tristan Thompson cheating scandal.
  • Khloé also posted a bunch of pointed Instagrams today, and it looks like she is *not* happy with Tristan right now!

    Oh, did you think that the residual drama from March 2019’s Tristan Thompson and Jordyn Woods cheating scandal was over? That’s cute. According to a new report, it looks like Khloé Kardashian is still smarting about the situation, and we also haven’t even seen the drama play out on Keeping Up With the Kardashians yet, so this scandal is FAR from over, friends.

    While Kylie Jenner and Jordyn Woods are hanging out at nightclubs together again, a source tells People that Khloé “never wants to see Jordyn again.” It’ll take a little bit of maneuvering for the sisters to figure out how that’s going to work since, as the source explains, “Kylie isn’t putting 50/50 blame on Jordyn and Tristan—as far as she is concerned, Tristan is the person she blames more. And since Khloé agrees with this, Kylie will be respectful and not talk about Jordyn with Khloé, but at the same time, Kylie wants to be able to say hello to Jordyn when she sees her out.”

    But it might take some time for Khloé to get used to this new normal, especially since it seems like she is still super pissed at Tristan. Yesterday, she pulled a very Khloé move and posted a ton of cryptic Instagram quotes that seem like they’re directed at him. They said things like “advice of the day: stop having relationship problems with someone you’re not in a relationship with” and “no matter how good your heart is, eventually you have to start treating people the way they treat you…”

Why Queen Elizabeth Is Not Going to Archie Harrison’s Christening

  • New reports reveal that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s son Archie Harrison will be baptized next month.
  • FYI the Queen won’t be attending.

    I’m about to make royal stans very happy, because not only did we get a great new pic of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s baby Archie Harrison today, but there are also new reports about his baptism.

    According to Daily Mail, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor will be christened next month at St. George’s Chapel, which is also where Meghan and Harry got married last year and where Harry and Prince William had their baptisms.

    Royal christenings are private events, so only friends and family get invites, however, the royals do get their photos taken, which means that we’ll get even more pics of the nug that is little Archie.

    The other intel that we have about the christening is that Queen Elizabeth reportedly won’t be attending the ceremony. She “will be absent on other duties,” so Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla will be leading the royal party. But it’s not a snub to Meghan and Harry or anything—the Queen doesn’t go to all of her great-grandchildren’s christenings. While she was there for Prince George and Princess Charlotte’s ceremonies, she didn’t attend Prince Louis’ last year.

    And besides the new Archie photos that we have to look forward to, after the christening we’ll also finally know who Meg and Harry chose as godparents. Some people think that they may go Hollywood and have George and Amal Clooney, Serena Williams, or Priyanka Chopra as godparents (though George has denied those rumors). But obviously Harry also has tons of royal family members to choose from too, so it might be a mix of celebs and royals who end up with Archie as a godson. Can’t wait to see who it is!
