Lovers, It’s Time to Get Serious

posted by Karen A. Kay

venus-capricorn-380x235My favorite planet is making news today. Venus, the planet of love, relationships and beauty, is going direct after a month and half in retrograde motion.

Matters of the heart have been complicated during this time — feelings were conflicted and nothing seemed to move forward. There was a lot of over-thinking and analyzing and churning during this time. Do I really want to be with this person? Are they right for me? Do I deserve more?

I’m not speaking of myself, per se. This indecisiveness in love is universal with Venus Retrograde. But now that Venus is going direct, we’ll be able to see our relationships clearly for what they are so we can decide — finally — what to do.

Venus is moving direct in cool Capricorn, which means love will still have a serious tone until it moves on into quirky Aquarius on March 5, 2014. We can expect to take our relationships and commitments more seriously until then, and we will demand the same of our partners, too!

Now is a great time to work through any relationship issues, tackle problems and commit to shared goals. Get to work, lovers! You can accomplish a lot together right now!

Fly Free While the Sun Is in Aquarius!

posted by Karen A. Kay

bird-sunset-300x300Here comes the Sun, nah na nah na, and I say it’s better than alright because it’s in airy Aquarius!

The Sun moves into breezy, brainy, independent and zany Aquarius on Sunday, January 19, and it signals a beginning of the end of the longest, coldest and most isolating part of winter.

Aquarius is friendly and social and experimental, so this is a great time to get back out of the house you’ve been hibernating in. It’s time to meet up with friends, discuss new ideas and make plans for the future.

I identify strongly with Aquarius because it’s an Air sign, like my own Sun sign of Gemini, and also because my Mars and North Node are in Aquarius — which makes me kind of kooky, like most Aquarians.

My mom’s an Aquarius, and she’s definitely a brilliant eccentric that fits the Aquarian stereotype. Being raised by this quirky lady has given me so much appreciation for this sign. There was never a dull moment growing up with this woman, and now Aquarius season is one of my favorite times of year.

This is when everyone behaves a bit more unpredictably, which makes life more interesting, and people are more willing to get together for happy hour or brunch and just chatter non-stop about all kinds of wacky things.

Prepare to be entertained, people! The Aquarian Sun is melting that icy Capricorn state of mind and amazing things are on the horizon!

Going Mental: Mercury in Aquarius

posted by Karen A. Kay

mercury-aquarius-380x235Let your freak flags fly! Mental Mercury moved into quirky Aquarius this weekend, and it’s time to embrace your most eccentric ideas!

Mercury is the planet that rules thoughts and communication, and Aquarius is highly intellectual and innovative. So think of this as a good thing!

This is a great time to look at your life from a different angle and gain new perspective. Also, Aquarius is very future-minded, so you can use this time to think about how to make your future bright.

And even though Mercury in Aquarius is a very mental transit, it’s far less emotional than many Mercury transits. Mercury in Aquarius spurs us to think and talk and question, but in a slightly detached and aloof way.

You’ll be juggling so many brilliant ideas now that you may lose touch with your sensitive side, but that’s OK for a bit, right? Sometimes curbing your emotions can cut down on worries and help you get more accomplished.

I can use this transit! If I can spend some time thinking up brilliant thoughts and grand ideas about my future, maybe it’ll help me stop worrying about it so much — at least for the length of this transit, which is a little over two weeks.

The Astrology of 2014: An Awakening

posted by Karen A. Kay

planets-spotlight-free-300x300Hmmmm … will 2014 be a repeat of 2013? The cosmos are serving up some similarities, for sure, and judging by the 2014 horoscopes, it looks to be another challenging year.

I actually had a great 2013, personally — lots of good times with wonderful people — but I do feel the tug of transformation at hand. I have no doubt that you, me, and everyone we know will be in a very different place and state of mind by this time next year.

Master Astrologers Rick Levine, Jeff Jawer and Maria DeSimone, all of whom I work with at Tarot.com, have each talked much about these transformational times and how much change is in store for the next few years.

We’ve already seen much upheaval in the news, and most of my friends and family have been going through ups and downs, too. I expect 2014 will indeed be challenging, but I’ve been preparing myself to make the most of it.

The general horoscopes for 2014 continue to reference the series of Uranus-Pluto squares taking place between 2012-2015 — and two of those happen in 2014 (April 21 and Dec. 14). That series of squares combined with other key planetary transits indicate we will be pushed to our limits this year, but breakthroughs lie on the horizon.

For me and all the rest of you Geminis out there, the news is pretty good. Lucky planet Jupiter will be in our house of Self-Worth until mid-July, so we should be feeling good. And yes, it’s going to be a year filled with hard work and a focus on career, but ultimately it will put us into a better position financially.

If you want to make 2014 better than 2013, I suggest studying up on the 2014 horoscopes for life, love and career. Read what’s in store for your sign and jot down some of the key dates to watch for. Mark them on your calendar and really use Astrology to your advantage!

Happy New Year!
