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.

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!

astro-planets-380x235As we fast approach New Year’s, it’s one thing to read the 2014 Horoscopes for your sign, but it’s quite another to get personal predictions for the entire year ahead based on your very own unique birth chart.

It’s amazing to be able to pinpoint right down to the day or week what the biggest turning points are in the year ahead, and it’s also the best way to prepare for the biggest challenges.

All of the 2014 Horoscopes point to another challenging year in which we will all spend a lot of time look more deeply into our desires and reevaluating our relationships.

This means it will be a year of ups and downs for every zodiac sign, so if you want help navigating the roller coaster of 2014, I highly recommend you get a 2014 Big Picture Yearly Forecast.

To use this Astrology report, all you need is your birth date, time and place and your current location. Master Astrologers Rick Levine and Jeff Jawer wrote the report to examine the long-term astrological cycles and major planetary transits in relation to your own birth information, so it’s highly accurate in predicting what’s ahead for each of you.

I just ran my own 2014 Big Picture Yearly Forecast, and I love the way it breaks down the various areas of my life — I can see what’s coming up in general, in my love life, in relation to the cycles of the Moon and more. It even tells me when to expect surprises!

For example, it says that I may get a surprise in my relationship on May 11, 2014, when Venus is opposite Uranus, so now I know I’ll be keeping an eye on that date and I’ll try to be on my best behavior, wink wink.

See what’s in store for you — 2014 is going to be one for the books!

holiday-lights-380x235Happy Christmas Eve! I know various people and cultures celebrate many different holidays, and I respect them all … but personally speaking, I’m a Christmas gal.

I’m also a Gemini, so I tend to celebrate Christmas by running around like a spaz trying to make it to every party and every store to find the perfect small-but-funny gifts for my close family and friends.

I don’t enjoy the commercialism around Christmas, so I just try to keep it lighthearted and fun, without spending too much money or stressing out if things don’t get done. I really just want to laugh with my friends this time of year.

I learned this from my quirky Aquarius mother, who couldn’t find the Christmas tree topper one year, and so she replaced it with a Yoda hand puppet from my brother’s Stars Wars collection.

My mom also couldn’t be bothered to send out Christmas cards on time, so one year she just quit forever and refuses to feel guilt about it. And at the same time she has the heart of a humanitarian, so she gives generously to everyone she encounters who is less fortunate — and she does that all year, not just during the holidays.

I’ve inherited a lot of my own holiday traditions from my mom, but I put a Gemini twist on it. I give as much as I can to as many people as I can handle, I decorate erratically and I don’t send cards, either. And I won’t often risk setting my kitchen on fire to bake cookies or anything like that — let’s leave that holiday activity to the more domestic signs out there.

Every zodiac sign takes a slightly different approach to celebrating, no matter which holiday. So wherever you are this time of year and whatever holiday you’re celebrating, take a look at those around.

I’ll bet it’s the Taurus who’s preparing a feast, the Pisces who’s going to midnight mass and the Gemini who wrapped a bunch of little presents so fast she forgot which gift was what and for whom it was intended. Yeah, I do that every year. Merry Christmas Eve!
