Don’t Be a Fool!

posted by Karen A. Kay

Astrology of April Fool's Day 2013April Fool’s Day always puts me on edge. I do have a good sense of humor, but I just don’t like being tricked. And this year if you try to trick me, well, the joke is on YOU!

That’s because the Astrology of April Fool’s Day 2013 is setting us up for a pranks-gone-wrong comedy of errors.

See, there’s a “Void of Course Moon” today, which happens when the Moon has no more aspects to make with other planets before it enters the next zodiac sign. So the Moon just kind of meanders without any directed energy.

Whenever there’s a Void of Course Moon, people have less focus and they are unlikely to do things their best or finish the things they start during this time.

And that means that if you’re planning some kind of elaborate April Fool’s Day joke to play on me or anyone else, it could quite possibly flop. Either it won’t be understood, or your timing will be off and the whole thing will backfire.

That’s the bad news. The good news is that the Moon is in sunny Sagittarius and there’s an optimistic vibe all around, so those of us who do get tricked will at least be in a good mood about it.

Enjoy your April Fool’s Day!

p.s., I quit! This is my last blog! (Just kidding ;)

My Boyfriend Is “The Fool”

posted by Karen A. Kay

Free Tarot reading at Tarot.comEvery time April Fool’s Day rolls around, I think about what a fool my boyfriend is. Heh heh. But I’m not talking literally — I’m talking Tarot.

I’ve had some incredible experiences with Tarot cards, and one of them is having the same card turn up repeatedly in readings to represent the same person. I wouldn’t even believe this is possible if it hadn’t happened to me personally so many times.

Usually it’s the Major Arcana cards that represent people in your life, and sometimes the Tarot cards even resemble those people. I’ve pulled cards that look like me, my boss, my mom — even cards with cats on them when I’m asking a question about something related to my household.

And more often than not, when I do a reading about my boyfriend I pull The Fool Tarot card. It has turned up far too many times to be a coincidence, and down to every detail this card IS him.

In the classic Rider Waite Tarot deck, the figure on The Fool card doesn’t resemble my boyfriend (that’s a good thing, because I’m not into men who wear tights), but there is a small light-colored dog that resembles his dog, and he’s holding a rose — my favorite flower.

The meaning of the card is that of someone who is a bit naïve about what they are getting into — i.e. a relationship with me. It’s a card about someone who is pure of heart and has good intentions, but maybe isn’t so hot at relationship nitty-gritty.

That’s how I interpret it, anyway, and I think I’m right. The only way this card could represent him any better is if he was holding a burrito.

And frankly that’s what Tarot is — it’s about listening to your own intuition, and then realizing that your guy might be The Fool, but he’s still the fool for you.

Or something like that.

Has this ever happened to you? Please do a Tarot reading and let me know what happens. I’d love to hear about your experience!

Feng Shui Diet Tips

posted by Karen A. Kay

Feng Shui Dieting Tips at Tarot.comI don’t usually worry too much about my weight or dieting and stuff like that. I’m a jittery Gemini, so I’m lucky to burn through extra calories just by chattering and tapping my toes restlessly throughout the day.

But this time of year, when the weather starts warming up and I know that swimsuit season isn’t far behind … well … I’m a little more interested in doing what I can to shape up.

And guess what! I just found out that you can use Feng Shui tips to shape up your body just the same way you would to shape up your house. Pretty cool!

Feng Shui has a powerful impact on the subconscious, so choosing what you put in your body by its shape, color and substance will have an effect on your overall conditioning. It’s also important to think about the environment you’re in while you’re eating.

For example, eating things that are brightly colored will stimulate your appetite, whereas eating things in mellow earth tones will make you feel more satisfied and less likely to over-eat. Similarly, painting the walls of your dining room the same earthy tones will also help prevent over-eating.

That’s just the tip of the iceberg (lettuce) when it comes to Feng Shui for weight loss. Get more tips from and I’ll meet you at the beach!

Put On Your Big-Girl Panties

posted by Karen A. Kay

Maria DeSimone Blog: Full Moon in LibraI love Maria DeSimone. She’s such a talented astrologer, and she also has such an amusing way with words. Do you know what she said about today’s stressful Full Moon in Libra? She said we should all “put on our big-girl panties and smile.”

She has a point.

Because even though this Full Moon in Libra on Wednesday, March 27 is making a ton of harsh aspects that will rock our relationships and cause many to come to a crashing end … well, that’s just life. You can’t bury your head in the sand and hide.

Maria’s latest blog points out that life will go on, as it always does, and the best way to handle curveballs is to stay positive. I completely agree with her — attitude is everything.

Maria also points out that we experienced a similarly challenging Full Moon on September 29, 2012, and we made it through that, didn’t we? I did!

In fact, I just looked back in my calendar to see what happened on September 29, 2012 and … whoa! I just realized that was the night I had a huge stupid fight with my boyfriend (we never fight!) and we almost broke up right beneath that fiery Full Moon in Aries. But we didn’t break up, and life went on.

I might choose to lay a little low tonight to make sure no more fights happen. I’ll just stay home and bury my head in some Pad Thai noodles for one. But whatever happens I’m sure life will go on. And I’m thankful to Maria for her honest Astrology advice, whether the news is good or bad.

Good luck tonight, friends!
