Putting the “Ex” Back in MRx

Get a free 3-card Love Celtic Cross Tarot reading from Tarot.comAs an Astrology writer, I often hear from women with questions about love and dating and relationships, and sadly I hear from way too many people who are broken-hearted.

Many times these people are eager to know if Astrology or Tarot cards can offer any insight or advice for getting back together with someone who broke their heart, and the answer is “yes,” of course. But then I always have to ask, are you sure you really want that??

I bring this up now because Mercury is retrograde until August 8, and whenever Mercury is retrograde it’s easier to win back a lost love. This is because Mercury is the communication planet, and when it’s spinning backward people also tend to think back.

During this time people spend more time reflecting on former loves, and maybe even begin to miss their exes. So if you’re thinking about a love who got away, it’s likely they’re thinking about you right now, too. Which means, if you want someone back now’s a good time to reach out.

That said, I must ask again, are you sure you really want that? Because honestly, most relationships that go bust once are bound to go bust again. There are exceptions to the rule, of course, and maybe you’re one of the lucky ones.

But if you’re clamoring to win back a lost love who cheated on you or didn’t treat you well, you should consider yourself lucky to have another chance to be single and hopefully meet someone who’s a better match.

I know this from personal experience, because I went through a breakup several years ago with someone I thought I would have given ANYTHING to win back. Then guess what — I did win him back, only to soon realize he was a totally creepy loser who should have stayed gone the first time.

When we broke up for the second time, I was finally free to meet the wonderful man I’m with now. And maybe my lying, cheating, narcissistic ex boyfriend is thinking about ME during this Mercury Retrograde, but until this blog I sure haven’t been thinking about him.

So yes, it’s true Astrology and Tarot can help you win back an ex. But they can also offer plenty of insight and advice for meeting someone new, too!

Sun in Leo: A Roaring Good Time!

posted by Karen A. Kay

Read your Cosmic Guide to Sun in Leo at Tarot.comRAWR! It’s Leo time! I have a Leo Rising, so I always come alive when the Sun moves into Leo, which it did today at 3:01 a.m. (PT).

What I love about the Sun in Leo is how it seems to make everyone more playful, creative and romantic — and we also get a burst of social energy that takes things up a notch.

It’s perfect timing, as we’re in the heat of summer and most of my friends and family are out playing in the sunshine, anyhow.

The Sun was previously in slow, sentimental Cancer, which kept many of us snuggled up close to home. So now this energy is just what we need to get out and make the most of all those barbecues, family reunions, company picnics and summer vacation travels.

As for me, I’m not quite as animated as I usually am this time of year, but it’s likely because Mercury Retrograde is holding me back. As a Gemini, which is ruled by Mercury, I tend to feel’s Mercury’s backward slide more than others. It turns me inward and I get too caught up in my own thoughts.

So, unfortunately, my energy is a little lower than I’d like, and I expect it will be until Mercury goes direct on August 8. But at least now that the Sun is in Leo I’ll get a little pick me up from the big cat known for turning yawns into roars.

Moon Day: The Eagle Has Landed!

posted by Karen A. Kay

Learn about your Moon sign at Tarot.comHappy Moon Day! It’s the 43rd anniversary of man’s first walk on the Moon by Neil Armstrong on July 20, 1969, and I’m looking at it as the perfect opportunity to celebrate all things lunar.

Right now the Moon is in lively Leo, which makes us a little more playful and show-offy than usual. Leo is all about attracting attention, big romance and expressing  creativity, so it happens to be one of my favorite placements for the Moon.

So, yes, this is where the Moon is today, and keep in mind it will change signs every couple of days. But we each have a personal Moon sign, too.  Our Moon sign is based on where the Moon was when we were born, and it rules our emotions and our inner world.

My own Moon sign is Capricorn, which is pretty hardcore. Having a Capricorn Moon means I’m extremely serious, practical and hardworking, but I’m also a little too controlled. And because the Moon rules emotions, this means I’m pretty good at hiding mine. I’m not proud of that, but hey, I’m working on it!

Mostly, I’m pretty happy about having a Capricorn Moon because it balances out my playful, scattered Gemini Sun and my overly dramatic Leo Rising so that people will take me a bit more seriously. (Er, at least I hope.)

Do you know your own Moon sign? Celebrate Moon Day by looking up your Moon sign here and see if suddenly sheds new light on an important part of who you are:

Past Life Lessons

posted by Karen A. Kay

Get your Edgar Cayce Past Life report from Tarot.comI saw a question on the Facebook page the other day that asked, “Do you believe in reincarnation,” and I was blown away to see how many people responded, and how many of those replied yes. Reincarnation is a fascinating topic for me, and it sounds like I’m in good company.

I’ve been intrigued by the idea of reincarnation for years, and I’ve read many books on the topic that describe how the things that happened to you in your past lives can affect your current life.

I’m not just talking about “karma,” per se — ie, if you did something bad or good in a past life it will lead to bad or good things happening to you in this life. That may be true, but I’m talking more about the fact that who we WERE shapes who we ARE.

For example, get this — true story: Long before I began writing about Astrology, a psychic medium told me that in a past life thousands of years ago I was the female leader of a South American Indian tribe, and I was revered for my knowledge of the stars. I would use the stars to guide the tribe, and now check me out — I earn a living as an Astrology writer, helping many modern “tribes” make the most of their daily lives. Hollah!

If you’d like to get started digging into your own past lives, you should check out this intriguing Edgar Cayce Past Life report, written by the most documented psychic of the 20th Century. The report uses your Astrology birth chart to tap into your past lives and personalities that shape who you are today, and it’s full-on fascinating!

The best part is, once you know who you were, you’ll be further on your way to becoming who you want to be now. :)
