The Cosmos Is Getting Cuddly

Aries: The Selfish Sign?

A Taurus Moon Makes Me Purr

The Perfectly Annoying Sun in Virgo

When Life Gives You Lemons ….

Meet Your Moon Sign

posted by Karen A. Kay

I’ve always known I’m a Gemini Sun sign, but it wasn’t until I learned my Moon sign that everything began to make sense. I used to wonder why, if I’m a lighthearted, scatterbrained, easy-breezy Gemini, why I also was such […]

Taurus-Gemini: The Cusp of Energy
