Cosmic Candor

Oh boy, here we go again. Every time love planet Venus moves into serious Capricorn, which it does tomorrow (November 5, 2013), it gets me a little bit concerned. I guess it’s really a good thing, but I’m not sure how it will play out in my own life. See, when Venus is in Capricorn,…

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 and passion and jealousy and trying to figure out the truth about life’s mysteries. Of…

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, long walks in the city parks to watch the leave fall in colorful piles, and…

I always think of my love life as an adventure. Sometimes it’s good, sometimes it’s bad and sometimes it’s ugly, but it’s rarely boring. How could it be with my fiery Leo Rising there to spice things up on a daily basis? And now, with love planet Venus moving into Sagittarius today (Monday, Oct. 7),…

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 most of us fun, flirty Gemini Twins. I started thinking and Googling some costume ideas…

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, which is where the “hate” comes in. Hate is a strong word, I know, and…

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 Sun and my theatrical Leo Moon. I’m always saying the wrong things at the wrong…

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 going on?! Is it the series of Uranus-Pluto squares the Astrologers keep referring to? Is…

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) and the cosmos are backing up this theme of “not working” nicely. This week we…

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! Mercury moved into Virgo on Friday, which sharpens our minds and words significantly — in…
