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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

It’s Your Lucky Week!

posted by Karen A. Kay

We’re all getting lucky this week, thanks to jolly Jupiter moving direct in Gemini on Wednesday, Jan. 30. As a Gemini, I’m especially excited about this — I believe it will give me just the lucky boost I need. Lookout […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Sparkles of Genius

posted by Karen A. Kay

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

posted by Karen A. Kay

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 […]

Weekend Love Horoscope: Hearts Beat Fast

posted by Karen A. Kay

I can’t believe another weekend is almost here already! Life sure speeds up while the Sun is in Gemini, doesn’t it? But I’m happy to report this weekend’s lovecast is once again as hot as the weather. This makes two […]

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

For the past year I’ve been reading and hearing about “Uranus square Pluto” — an upcoming series of epic Astrology aspects that is likely to usher in a period of profound change on a global scale. Whoa. You can’t help […]

Spread Your Wings: Mercury in Gemini

posted by Karen A. Kay

It’s time to talk up a blue streak and flirt up a storm! (Not that I don’t usually do that already, I am a Gemini, after all). But now mental Mercury is speeding into its home sign (and mine) — […]

The Latest Forecast: Brain Fog

posted by Karen A. Kay

Whatever you’re doing Sunday, be prepared for some surprises — your plans are going to be eclipsed (literally) by some hot planetary action. The Sun is moving into Gemini, and there’s also a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Gemini the […]

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 […]
