Watch your mouths today, friends! Communication planet Mercury is heading into fiery Aries from April 7-23, 2014, and it’s quite possible that we’ll be thinking and speaking so fast during this time that we’ll make a few flubs. Mercury in […]

Get Ready to Bliss Out!

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 […]

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 […]

It’s Summertime, But the Living Ain’t Easy … Yet!

posted by Karen A. Kay

Summer arrives with the Sun in Cancer this Friday, June 21, but we still have some work to do before we let ourselves sink into the sunshine completely. Don’t let that frighten you — this week is actually looking pretty […]

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 […]

May Day, May Day! It’s Mercury in Taurus!

posted by Karen A. Kay

As a chatty Gemini, I always struggle when communication planet Mercury transits tight-lipped Taurus. But then again, it’s probably good for me to shut my mouth and focus on being practical every once in a while. Mercury, my own ruling […]

What’s that smell?

posted by Karen A. Kay

If something smells bad this week, it could be your own rotten thoughts stinking up your otherwise pleasant world! Why? Well, there are a number of cosmic events this week that could give us all a case of the blahs, […]

Lights … Camera … Nap Time!

posted by Karen A. Kay

Action planet Mars is moving into Taurus tomorrow (Saturday, April 20), and I always tend to think of this as a lazy transit. But it’s not! Even though Taurus loves to lounge around getting comfy on the couch with a […]

Slow Down, It’s Taurus Time!

posted by Karen A. Kay

The Sun is moving into Taurus tomorrow, and I’m INTO it! This highly indulgent transit lasts from April 19 to May 20, during which time we’re all inspired to slow down the pace of life, let our senses come alive […]

Hey Venus! Show Me the Money!

posted by Karen A. Kay

Money stresses me out. They say it’s the root of all evil, right? And while I don’t necessarily think of it as “evil,” per se, I certainly don’t have enough of it myself. And I’m well aware of how much […]

Calm Yourself! It’s Taurus Time!

posted by Karen A. Kay

The week got off to a terrible start yesterday, with tragic news of the Boston Marathon bombings clouding over what was supposed to have been a lovely day. Venus moved into Taurus yesterday (Monday, April 15), but instead of being […]

The Dark Side of Pluto

posted by Karen A. Kay

Pluto is such a misunderstood planet. I can remember growing up in the era of “Mork & Mindy,” and I would get very confused whenever I heard Mork say “Don’t ever go to Pluto, it’s a Mickey Mouse planet.” Huh? […]

Happy Birthday, Aries!

posted by Karen A. Kay

Is there anything better than a birthday? Sure there is — there’s YOUR birthday. But no matter whose birthday it is right now or what zodiac sign they are, it’s important to celebrate. Why? Because being acknowledged on your birthday […]

Watch Your Temper: Mars in Aries

posted by Karen A. Kay

Here we go! Action planet Mars, the planet that rules war, is charging into fiery Aries today for the first time in nearly two years. There’s so much fearless and impulsive energy in the air that I’m a little bit […]

Don’t Miss Saturn sextile Pluto!

I was just studying up on a rare and powerful planetary aspect between Saturn and Pluto that’s coming up this Friday, and I want to share it with those of you who could use a change. A big change. Saturn […]

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 […]

Putting the “Ex” Back in MRx

posted by Karen A. Kay

As 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 brokenhearted. Many times these people are eager to know if Astrology can […]

Love in Retrograde

posted by Karen A. Kay

Mercury, my ruling planet, is going retrograde this Saturday, February 23, and I’m always interested to see how it affects my love life. Because it always does! Last time Mercury went retrograde in November 2012, my love life kind of […]

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 […]

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 […]

The Wacky World of Mars in Aquarius

posted by Karen A. Kay

Yesterday I mentioned that action planet Mars was moving into quirky Aquarius on Christmas Day, but I didn’t elaborate on the fact that this is a very personal transit for me because Mars is in Aquarius in my own birth […]

Love’s Great Adventure

posted by Karen A. Kay

There’s a pretty sweet love transit happening this weekend and I can’t wait to tell you about it, so I’ll tell you now! Love planet Venus is moving into sassy Sagittarius on Saturday, Dec. 15 and it’s going to make […]

Ch-ch-ch Changes! Uranus Is Turning Direct

posted by Karen A. Kay

Uranus is the rebel planet of shocks and surprises, and it’s been retrograde for the past five months. So when it starts moving direct again this week, we should brace ourselves for change. Uranus goes direct on Thursday, Dec. 13, […]

Cross My Heart: Venus in Scorpio

posted by Karen A. Kay

Love planet Venus has been in peaceful, balanced Libra since October 28, but I have to admit I hardly noticed. Frankly, my own love life has been more of a struggle for peace and balance since then, and I’m pretty […]

Uranus Square Pluto: The Great Shake-Up

posted by Karen A. Kay

I’ve had earthquakes on the brain for the past few months, ever since Uranus and Pluto began squaring off. And today, many parts of the U.S. and other countries also have earthquakes on the brain. That’s because today is the […]

2012: It’s Not the End of the World

posted by Karen A. Kay

I can’t believe it’s almost October. That of course means it’s almost 2013, which means we’re growing close to that ominous date of December 21, 2012 that so many people are freaking out about as “the end of the world.” […]

Mercury in Libra: Messages of Love

posted by Karen A. Kay

Mercury moves fast, changing signs every two and a half or three weeks, and it’s a good thing because its trip through Virgo since August 31 has turned me into a witch. Ok, not really, but it’s been a rough […]

Mercury in Virgo

posted by Karen A. Kay

I’ve done a lot of complaining about Virgo in the last week or so, but here’s a Virgo transit I actually like: Communication planet Mercury is moving into Virgo on Friday, August 31 (the same day as the Full Moon […]

Fiery Mars in Scorpio

posted by Karen A. Kay

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 […]

Just Another Manic Moon-day!

posted by Karen A. Kay

Everybody hop on the mood swing! The Moon, which rules our emotions, moved into balanced Libra last night at 9:45 p.m. (PT), but it’s making so many crazy aspects today that our emotions will be pulled in many different directions. […]

Love Is a Battlefield

posted by Karen A. Kay

Wow, tomorrow is going to be off the cosmic charts! Wednesday, August 15 is filled with all kinds of conflicting planetary energy that will seriously affect personal relationships. We might need to call in some professional help! On the one […]

Kiss Up to Venus in Cancer

posted by Karen A. Kay

Oh, thank heavens — literally. Love planet Venus is moving into Cancer tomorrow, and I’m looking at it like a much-needed relationship IV that will feed my starvation for intimacy. Sorry, that sounds melodramatic (you can blame that on my […]

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 […]

Past Life Lessons

posted by Karen A. Kay

I saw a question on the Tarot.com 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 […]

New Moon in Cancer

posted by Karen A. Kay

I love new things. New friends, new adventures, new shoes and New Moons! Tonight’s New Moon in Cancer (9:24 p.m. PT / 12:24 a.m. ET) begins a new lunar cycle, so it’s time once again to spend a little bit […]

Sparkles of Genius

Have you had any flashes of brilliance in the past week? I sure have. My best idea yet was deciding to bring my disco ball camping, where I then proceeded to make a rope out of duct tape (more brilliance!) […]

Getting Ready for Retrograde

What are you doing today? I know what I’ll be doing: Backing up my hard drive, taking my car for a tune-up and double-checking my campground reservations for this weekend. Why? Because Mercury goes retrograde tomorrow, and I want to […]

Uranus Retrograde: Freedom Calls

posted by Karen A. Kay

As a freedom-loving Gemini, I can’t help but wonder if I’ll even notice when Uranus goes retrograde this Friday the 13th. It’s happening one day before Mercury also goes retrograde, and I know I’ll feel THAT — but Uranus Retrograde? […]

Do You Know Your Venus Sign?

Love planet Venus went direct in my personal Sun sign of Gemini yesterday, and that means we’re all going to want to make plenty of mental connections when it comes to romance. This is likely going to affect me and […]

Weekend Love Horoscope: Hearts Beat Fast

Your Saturn Return: It’s a GOOD Thing

posted by Karen A. Kay

I completely freaked out when I turned 28. At the time I thought it was just some kind of existential crisis about nearing the age of 30, but now I know it was related to my Saturn Return. It’s pretty […]

Chiron “The Wounded Healer” Is Retrograde

posted by Karen A. Kay

You know what they say — Time heals all wounds. Or wait, is it time wounds all heals? Whichever it is (probably both), the time for healing is now. That’s because Chiron, “the wounded healer,” is retrograde, and this planetary […]

Lucky Jupiter in Gemini

posted by Karen A. Kay

I thought I was excited about my birthday this past weekend (it was excellent, thank you), but now I’m even more excited about Jupiter in Gemini! I always think of giant Jupiter as the lucky the planet, because it opens […]

Get Real: Neptune Retrograde

posted by Karen A. Kay

No 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 […]

Same Sign Dating: My Gemini Twin

Uranus Square Pluto: Change Is Coming

Spread Your Wings: Mercury in Gemini
