posted by Karen A. Kay

Hmmmm … 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 […]

Scorpio: The Dark Season

posted by Karen A. Kay

Now that the Sun is in Scorpio (it moved there last Wednesday, Oct. 23, I can feel an edgy intensity in the air. Can you? Scorpio has a serious dark side — it’s a secretive sign that’s all about probing […]

Get Ready for Retrograde!

October in Oregon is the most beautiful time of year. OK, well, October almost anywhere is gorgeous — but it’s also one of my favorite months because there is so much fun stuff to do. Trips to the pumpkin patch, […]

Start a New Love Adventure Today!

Have you started Halloween costume shopping yet? It’s a month away, but it’s time to get started if you’re going to go all-out, like me. See, I’m a Gemini, and I’d venture to guess that Halloween is a favorite for […]

Scorpio Sure Can Sting

posted by Karen A. Kay

I have a love-hate thing with the zodiac sign of Scorpio. Apparently we’re attracted to each other, because they keep turning up in my life over and over again — especially in the dating realm. But it typically ends disastrously, […]

Speak No Evil

posted by Karen A. Kay

Oh dear, I’m in for a challenging week. Whenever the horoscopes tell me to watch my mouth, I know I’m in trouble. See, I already have a big mouth to begin with — I blame it on my chatty Gemini […]

Getting Back in Balance

Take the Day Off!

posted by Karen A. Kay

Happy Labor Day! I’m going to celebrate by NOT laboring, which means I’m going to keep this blog super-short today. I did want to share that I just read Maria DeSimone’s Weekly Astrology Overview for this week (September 2-8, 2013) […]

Mercury Rules!

Mercury rules — literally. It rules my sign, Gemini, and it also rules communication and matters of the mind. And this week it rules in general because it’s the best week for communication and critical thinking for the entire year! […]

Don’t Bet On It

posted by Karen A. Kay

I’m not a big risk-taker, so gambling doesn’t hold much appeal for me. But if you’re one of those who do enjoy a slot machine here or a video poker game there, you’ll want to think twice about taking a […]

Let’s Talk About Me

Prepare for a Cosmic Punch

I’m coming off a lovely couple of weeks — in fact, many of us are, as we’ve been enveloped in a fuzzy Neptune fog that has made it easy to relax a little, put business aside and pursue creative endeavors […]

Lost in a Fog

posted by Karen A. Kay

When I read Maria DeSimone’s Weekly Astrology Overview for the week of May 6-13, 2013, I groaned out loud. That’s because it’s all about being lost in a fog, and having a difficult time finding clarity. For some people, that’s […]

Charge Ahead with Mars in Sagittarius

Fiery Mars in Scorpio

Action planet Mars is on the move, but I’m sure not. I’ve got one of those dreaded summer cold-flu things, with the fever and the chills. And believe you me, it’s no fun to be down and out when the […]

The Perfectly Annoying Sun in Virgo

posted by Karen A. Kay

I have a confession to make: I’m not a huge fan of the zodiac sign Virgo. I’m a Gemini with a Leo Rising, neither of which are naturally super compatible with Virgo, and I don’t have much Virgo in my […]

Just Another Manic Moon-day!

It’s a Creative New Moon in Leo!
