Happy Birthday to My Sagittarius Bestie!

posted by Karen A. Kay

As I get ready to celebrate my BFF’s birthday tomorrow, it’s time to reflect on one of the things I love about her the most — her zodiac sign. My best friend Elizabeth is a Sagittarius, and she’s completely awesome. […]

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

posted by Karen A. Kay

Wow, what a cruddy couple of weeks I’ve had. Lots of stress and fatigue following the death of a friend, and all around me others have been going through a similar spell of bad luck and loss. What exactly is […]

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!

posted by Karen A. Kay

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

posted by Karen A. Kay

I have a flair for drama, thanks to my Leo Rising. Combine that with my gabby Gemini Sun, and let’s just say I tend to communicate in a theatrical manner — which is probably how I’ve managed to become a […]

Watch Out for Wednesday!

posted by Karen A. Kay

I fell down in the bathtub the other day. I felt like a little old lady, but of course it could happen to anyone if you’re careless about rinsing out slippery hair conditioner right before standing on one leg to […]

Merry Christmas … in July!

posted by Karen A. Kay

Ho ho ho … there’s so much happening in the cosmos this week it feels like Christmas in July. And that includes both the good and the stressful parts of the holiday season. Check it out — there’s a Full […]

Get Ready to Bliss Out!

posted by Karen A. Kay

Could you use a little bit of renewed hope and inspiration right now? I sure could — this Mercury Retrograde business has been getting to me. Mercury has been spinning backward for weeks, and I’ve had more than my fair […]

If You Lived Here, You’d Be Home

posted by Karen A. Kay

So you know that old saying, “Home is where the heart is?” How true is that?! And sadly for me, my actual home is rather far removed from the various people and places that hold my heart. In my case, […]

Planets Gone Wild!

posted by Karen A. Kay

BANG! I’m excited about all the fireworks this week, but I’m not just talking about the Fourth of July. Many of Astrology’s key planets are acting up, too — and it might be a rocky road, but there are plenty […]

Join the Cosmic Circus!

posted by Karen A. Kay

I loved going to the circus when I was little. I was mesmerized by the big cats jumping through hoops of fire and the glittery ladies flying through the air with the greatest of ease … It’s been years since […]

Strange Love

posted by Karen A. Kay

It’s my birthday, it’s my birthday, I’m gonna party like it’s my birthday … and somebody better get me a bottle of Bacardi stat, because it looks like we’re going to need it this week. I’m heading out of the […]

Brilliant? Crazy? Or Both?

posted by Karen A. Kay

Woo-hoo, it’s one week ’til my birthday and I’m counting down! I’m also laughing out loud because I just read this week’s Astrology overview and it says we’re likely to dream up a lot of brilliant ideas that other people […]

The Cosmos Is Getting Cuddly

posted by Karen A. Kay

Here we are smack-dab in the midst of Gemini season, and as predicted things are action packed. It’s Memorial Day weekend, of course, and many of us have the day off. That’s great, but also unfortunate cosmic timing because today […]

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 […]

Go Get ‘Em!

posted by Karen A. Kay

If you’ve got a case of the Mondays, hold on tight — this is going to be a powerful week, and today’s just the beginning. Mercury is trine Pluto on this Monday, May 6, which means that both today and […]

Totally Eclipsed Out

posted by Karen A. Kay

My good friend Tiffany does the best karaoke version of “Total Eclipse of the Heart” I’ve ever seen or heard. She lovingly mocks the overly-dramatic theatrics of the original Bonnie Tyler lyrics, wailing and collapsing into faux sobs as she […]

Aries: The Selfish Sign?

posted by Karen A. Kay

Hmmmmm, interesting. I just read Maria DeSimone’s new blog about how every zodiac sign has a lesson to learn, and she talked a great deal about how selfish Aries is. That sounds bad, right? Except the way she put it, […]

Cha-Ching! It’s the Best Week of the Year!

posted by Karen A. Kay

Well, we made it through April Fool’s Day unscathed — at least I did, and I hope you did, too. But that’s not the only good news: This just so happens to be one of the best weeks of the […]

Put On Your Big-Girl Panties

posted by Karen A. Kay

I love Maria DeSimone. She’s such a talented astrologer, and she also has such an amusing way with words. Do you know what she said about today’s stressful Full Moon in Libra? She said we should all “put on our […]

A Week of Full Moon Madness

posted by Karen A. Kay

We’re in for a challenging week, my friends. Get ready for power struggles in your most important relationships, and do your best to stay positive and roll with the punches. The biggest and most stressful Astrology event this week is […]

Were You Born to be Rich?

posted by Karen A. Kay

I’m pretty sure I wasn’t meant to be wealthy. I was born to a poor family, and no matter how hard I have worked over the years, I can never seem to get ahead. Is it possible I am just […]

Mercury Retrograde: Come Out and Play

posted by Karen A. Kay

By now, most of us have heard of Mercury Retrograde. We know it causes problems and we think of it as something to fear, but it’s silly to think you need to hide out under a rock during this time. […]

This Week Is a Cosmic Treat!

posted by Karen A. Kay

I don’t believe in fairy tales. I’m a little too jaded at this point in my life to believe in things like fated love or forever soul mates. But according to Astrologer Maria DeSimone, this week might change my mind. […]

Astrology Unlocks Your Love Life

posted by Karen A. Kay

I’ve been trying to figure out my love life for a long time now. I’ve survived umpteen boyfriends, a 10-year marriage and then another umpteen boyfriends only to come out of it all dazed and confused. I’m in a relationship […]

Wake-Up! Saturn Is Going Retrograde

posted by Karen A. Kay

Karma is a tricky topic to write about, because it’s kind of esoteric and hard to explain. But its basic premise is that you get what you deserve, right? So when Saturn, the planet of karma, turns retrograde, it means […]

Walking on Sunshine

posted by Karen A. Kay

From Mars to the Moon, the first week of February is blasting off this brand new month with several amazing Astrology events! Today, Mars is conjunct Neptune in Pisces, which is a beautiful event that doesn’t happen very often. This […]

Jupiter Direct: Eat it up!

posted by Karen A. Kay

As I mentioned yesterday, lucky planet Jupiter is going direct today (January 30) after about four months in retrograde, and it means today’s your lucky day! OK, it’s my lucky day, too, so I’m expanding on my plans to buy […]

A Stellar Week for Astrology

posted by Karen A. Kay

Well, I must say it’s going to be a great week — how can it not when so many of us have the day off from work to celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr! But it actually gets even better than […]

Bright Insight for December 2012

posted by Karen A. Kay

November was a tough month for many of us, including me and my colleague, Astrologer Maria DeSimone. For me, it was mostly emotional turmoil, but for Maria it was very rough in the material world. In addition to Mercury Retrograde […]

Introducing Liz, My Fave Sunny Sagittarius

posted by Karen A. Kay

My best friend Elizabeth is a Sagittarius, and she’s completely awesome. She’s so awesome, in fact, that she goes by Liz instead of Elizabeth because it’s less stuffy and more suited to her active social life and sense of adventure. […]

Don’t Just Honor the Dead, Talk to Them!

posted by Karen A. Kay

Can you feel it? There’s an air of mystery today, as the veil to other dimensions lifts and we honor those who have passed. It’s Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, and they say it’s easier to […]

September 2012: Sh*t Hits the Fan!

posted by Karen A. Kay

For a long time Astrologers have been saying that September 2012 is going to be epic, but I’m finally beginning to fully realize what they mean. I just read the latest blog from Maria DeSimone at Tarot.com, and while she’s […]

Living with Virgo’s White Gloves

posted by Karen A. Kay

Remember the other day when I was going on and on about Virgo and why it’s such a tough sign for me to get along with personally? Well, check it out: Astrologer Maria DeSimone was married to a Virgo, and […]

Once In a Blue Moon

posted by Karen A. Kay

Have you heard that expression, “Once in a Blue Moon,” and wondered what exactly that means? Does the Moon really turn blue? Does this only happen once in a couple hundred or every thousand years? Well, no and no. But […]

Life with Leo: This Lion Can Roar!

posted by Karen A. Kay

I’ve always gotten along so well with Leos. I’m a Gemini, and I actually noticed how compatible our signs must be long before I began studying Astrology. Leos would just naturally come into my life — my dad’s a Leo, […]

Love Alert! Venus Is Retrograde

posted by Karen A. Kay

Okay, I already was whining about Venus Retrograde yesterday, so I’ll try keep this short. But the thing is, it’s kind of a big deal. I’m on high love anxiety wondering if my boyfriend is going to call and tell […]
