Feel This: Mercury in Cancer

posted by Karen A. Kay

Learn about Mercury in Cancer at Tarot.comAs a Gemini, I’m stuck with that “I can’t turn off my brain” feeling most of the time, but it’s been even worse with mental Mercury in Gemini the past few weeks. Fortunately, relief is at hand.

Mercury, the planet of communication and brain-spins is moving into more comfortable cancer. Here, it will slow down our thoughts a bit and turn us into something more sentimental.

With Mercury in Cancer, our communication with others should deepen, and we’ll be able to soften up our sharp intellect side. Ultimately, this should increase our chances for intimacy, which is always a good thing, right?

Well, mostly yes. But with a transit as emotional as this one, we’ll want to watch for becoming TOO emotional — talking about your feelings is one thing, but putting them upon someone else is another.

I’m going to watch that I don’t do that, but mostly I’ll just be happy to be feeling more and thinking less for a few weeks.

Get Real: Neptune Retrograde

posted by Karen A. Kay

See the Top 5 Reasons Neptune Retrograde Rules at Tarot.comNo way, Neptune, we didn’t forget about you! But in all the hullabaloo over Monday’s Full Moon Lunar Eclipse and Tuesday’s Venus transit of the Sun, we haven’t had a chance to discuss Neptune Retrograde.

Nebulous planet Neptune went retrograde on Monday, which will require us to get real for the next five months.

As the planet of dreams, spirituality and personal possibilities, Neptune helps us gloss over the harsher aspects of life. So when it’s retrograde, it’s time to face the truth.

This isn’t bad, of course. It might be difficult, as reality checks can be. But this is a really productive time to get clear about what you’re doing, where you’re going and who you’re spending your time with.

Personally, I think Neptune Retrograde is a real game changer, and I like it!

Astrology You Can See!

posted by Karen A. Kay

Read about the 2012 Venus transit of the Sun at Tarot.comIt’s one thing to feel Astrology, but it’s even more amazing when you can actually see it in action. So take a look up this Wednesday, June 5 as love planet Venus visibly transits the Sun in a once-in-a-lifetime event.

Venus will cross the Sun from about 3:06 p.m. to 10 p.m. (PDT), and if you pick up a pair of solar glasses or welder’s glasses from a home improvement store, you’ll be able to see it from most places in the world. This won’t happen again until 2117!

Aside from the visual spectacle, this Venus-Sun conjunction has significant meaning in Astrology, too. It’s great news for love and relationships! When the Sun is conjunct Venus, it puts an emphasis on creativity and self-expression. It’s about getting out to meet and mingle, throwing parties and putting energy into pleasurable activities.

So go on, get out there! Maybe you’ll meet someone special while you’re shopping for those welder’s glasses!

Total Eclipse of the Mind

posted by Karen A. Kay

Read your free Full Moon Lunar Eclipse Horoscope at Tarot.comHere we go again! There’s another eclipse today, but this time it’s a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius, so it won’t rattle us quite as much as the Solar Eclipse in Gemini a few weeks back.

That said, Monday’s Lunar Eclipse may still turn our plans upside down. It’s about letting go of old dreams so we can pursue new ones, and we might be surprised by how willing we are to make some big changes today.

This is also backed up by another significant cosmic event happening today, which is Neptune Retrograde. Neptune is the planet of dreams, spirituality and personal possibilities, so when it spins backward the next five months we’ll find ourselves getting real.

It’s time to re-examine our beliefs, so don’t be afraid to change your plans if they no longer sound appealing. This may result in disruptions — either by you or to you — so stay on your toes!
