Cosmic Candor

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 financial risk this week. See, the planets are making a jumble of complicated and contradictory…

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 successful writer. I’m also pretty entertaining company at the dinner table, if I do say…

OK, so I’m not technically a Leo, but I am a Leo Rising — and as such I’m pretty excited about this week in Astrology. It’s going to be the best week of summer — and I mean for everyone, not just for us lovable Lions (or part Lions). There’s a gorgeous New Moon in…

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 shave. Er, right? What’s my point? My point is that this happened almost exactly at…

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 Moon in Aquarius, love planet Venus moves into Virgo, the Sun enters Leo and then…

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 share of freakouts. In fact, just yesterday my mind was playing all kinds of tricks…

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, it’s simply “Home is where my stuff is.” I bring this up because the Astrology…

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 of good times mixed in, too. Most of this week’s cosmic pain points happen early…

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 I’ve been to the big-top, but at least this week is pretty much like one…

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 good, Astrologically speaking. It’s just that it’s going to require some extra effort to balance…
