Mercury and the Brain Spins

posted by Karen A. Kay

Mercury in AriesMercury in Aries always makes me feel like I’ve had a little too much Chardonnay at lunch. But this time I’m going to get prepared!

Mercury, the planet that rules our thoughts and speech, is racing into bold Aries on Saturday, April 13.

Whenever Mercury is in Aries, we all notice a collective speed-up in the communications happening around us — we think faster and talk faster and can even be a little bit aggressive with the things we say.

If someone who’s usually quite mellow and patient suddenly snaps at you, it’s probably Mercury in Aries. And if you can’t sleep because you can’t turn off your brain and just stop overthinking everything, that’s probably Mercury in Aries.

The thing to do is just put a little extra effort into thinking before you speak for the next two and a half weeks of this transit, and hey — maybe I really should have that glass o’ wine before bed to help me sleep!

Don’t Tax Yourself!

posted by Karen A. Kay

Financial Tarot reading from Tarot.comI don’t know anyone who thinks taxes are fun. They’re too complicated, they eat into your precious time and more often than not you owe more money than you thought you would.

Of course, this is our civic duty and I’m only grumbling slightly. But the truth is, I do think tax reform is in order. I mean, I’m a relatively smart gal and they’re still way too hard for me to handle on my own.

Should taxes really be so complicated that a person is required to spend so many days and hundreds of dollars to hire help, just so they can pay up? I don’t think so.

OK, I’m done ranting. My whole point is just to say that doing your taxes is hard, but I’ve found something that will make it a little easier.

Tarot.com has a Financial Celtic Cross Tarot reading that can help you take a closer look at the way you handle money, offer insight on financial opportunities to watch for, provide advice on things you can do to generate more income, and just make you feel more balanced about your whole financial situation in general.

It’s genuine tax relief!

They’ve put this Financial Tarot reading on sale from now up until Tax Day (Monday, April 15), so as long as you’re thinking about money and doing your financial paperwork, this is a good time to get a little more insight about how you can set yourself up to make more money in the coming year.

Good luck!

The Dark Side of Pluto

posted by Karen A. Kay

Pluto RetrogradePluto is such a misunderstood planet. I can remember growing up in the era of “Mork & Mindy,” and I would get very confused whenever I heard Mork say “Don’t ever go to Pluto, it’s a Mickey Mouse planet.” Huh? What?

But I get it now. Pluto is a Mickey Mouse planet, in that some people don’t take it any more seriously than they would a cartoon. It was even downgraded to a “dwarf planet” in astronomy in 2006. But in Astrology, Pluto remains a strong planetary player.

And unlike Mickey Mouse, Pluto should be taken seriously. It’s tiny, but powerful, and it’s going retrograde in hardworking Capricorn for five months starting tomorrow.

Pluto goes retrograde every year, so it’s not groundbreaking in that sense. But you should know that when Pluto is retrograde in Capricorn it will put us in a more reflective state of mind that forces us to confront our own dark sides.

This will be a period of personal reckoning intended to lead to self-improvement — after all, we can’t fix the things about ourselves we don’t like until we take a closer look at them, right?

Pluto means business, and there’s nothing Goofy about that.

New Moon in Aries: It’s All About YOU!

posted by Karen A. Kay

I’ve been getting ready for tomorrow’s New Moon in Aries for what feels like weeks! And that’s because it’s all about ME ME ME. OK, well, it’s also about YOU.

The Full Moon in Aries on Wednesday, April 10 is a fiery lunation that gives everyone the right to be selfish for a spell. And I don’t mean that in a bad way — I mean that it’s just meant to get people focused on their own needs for a couple of weeks so we can all take charge of our lives.

That has to happen every once in a while, right? Right!

This Full Moon is a chance to jump-start our lives in all kinds of exciting new directions! Things you might normally be afraid to do will seem easier now, and you’ll have the energy and spirit to start new things, end bad things, try different things — however you want to use this power.

I read that this New Moon is so strong we might even do impulsive things that are out out-of-character, and some of them could backfire if we’re not careful. So the thing to do is seize this energy to take a leap, but also look before we leap.

My New Moon in Aries Horoscope for Gemini says this New Moon takes place in my 11th House of Groups, which means we Geminis can expect to see the most excitement in our groups of friends, co-workers and teammates.

Sounds like this is the time for me to start planning all my summer group backpacking trips, and maybe I can finally get together with my girlfriends and put those plans in motion for the cat fashion boutique -slash- Keanu Reeves poster shop we always talk about.

OK, just kidding, that’s still a stretch. (Although if the economy were a little better, I’m sure there would be a huge market for such amazeballs one-stop shopping). But you know what I mean — it’s time to make things happen! Let’s get to it!
