Neptune goes retrograde in Aquarius

What you see isn't always what you get.

If my brain wasn't swallowed up by PMS, I'd write something inspiring, informative or at least a little funny about Neptune retrograde...but instead, I found these two, and they say it all! Too cute!!!! Love them! Take it away Purple Moon Flowers...

Saturn goes direct in Virgo

Forward ho!

After this retrograde started on January 13th, back in Libra, sorting out the facts may have been a bit cloudy, but weee, now, times are a changing and some sensible insight is on its way. Even if it'll be kind of slow, consider today the turning point and a cosmic light bulb moment. Yes, forward ho!

As for where you’ll see some relief…

Uranus enters Aries

When making sense turns subjective.

Ever since Uranus went into Aries I can't stop thinking about fried chicken. In particular, this sandwich:

Last Sunday I wandered into the cutest restaurant that resembled a barn, (Cheeky Sandwiches), looking for an ice coffee. Little did I know it would house one of the greatest culinary creations I'd seen in ages — the fried chicken sandwich on a homemade buttermilk biscuit with gravy and slaw. If I didn't already just scarf down a kimchi dog, it would have been down my throat already...So I swore I'd be back.

...After a few days of hitting the gym extra hard, and obsessing on this sandwich as if it were Christmas, I gave myself the green light to go get it and OMG, did it live up to the anticipation: juicy, tasty, crispy, milky and oh so comforting — YUM! ...words can not describe...and if only the story ended there...but it was the awakening of my secret obsession for fried chicken that grew day after day. The next day, while riding my bike past Kyochon Chicken, the latest fried chicken chain to hit Koreatown, NYC, forces beyond me pulled me in and momentarily, there I was with my Original Sal Sal Chicken Strips.

While I loved it, it wasn't as succulent as I'd wish, but fulfilling none the less and I ate ever crumb of the 6 piece box as if I were on death row and even contemplated getting a few more after. Yes, delicious! ...But instead of hopping back in line, I then got lost in memories of the most delicious pieces of fried chicken I've had through the years like some whacked out lovelorn ex. Obviously, KFC and Chick-fil-A have its own untouchable panache, but other NYC choices that I feel carry the torch in which I can't resist are:

  • F&B, which has the best chicken frites ever, but are no more, at least on 23rd in NYC.
  • Oh My Chicken in Flushing, Queens that hopefully have fixed their menu to not read, "One taste you forget after one bite."
  • Erb Thai in Greenpoint that has delicious popcorn chicken with tangy dipping sauce that melts all cares how I think I'm a vegetarian.

Anyway, with this transit lasting for the next 7 years, I can only hope I can control myself...Until then, expect more fried chicken updates to come...

Full moon in Sagittarius

Celebrating whatever way that means to you.

Little did i know I would take on this day so literally...I bought this beautiful dress on Saturday., and was going to rock it out tonight for a party to launch a new mag, Richardson, but argh, thanks to PMS and most likely the large amount of my favorite yummy cookies from Parisi Bakery in Astoria, Queens that my amazing friend Jay, a Pisces (an artist, of course), brought over, I no longer fit in it. Just 5 days later and my boobs have expanded beyond this dress! WTF! Wish I had something else exciting to report, but I don't. So, Happy full moon in Sag....and here's hoping to my boobs deflating soon! xoxo, K.

Moon In Scorpio

From deep inside your body will churn.

I use to think rat road kill was the most disgusting of all the urban decay, never stopping to snap the many dead pigeons I’ve seen — as they never looked so detrimental or so shockingly gruesome that I had to shoot it…at the least, they get to fly, not like rats who never know freedom beyond the want of survival…. but today, today I changed my mind…

Those INTESTINES! THAT EYE! THAT EYE IN THE BEAK!!!! It’s just TOO horrid for words. It’s SO INTENSE; it’s impossible not to feel as if you can smell the repulsion from just looking.(Click on pic for the complete vomit-inducing effect.)

...and speaking of intensity, and Scorpionic insanities, today my obsession with The Real Housewives of New Jersey took control and I had to trek my ass over to see the mess that is Danielle, who was doing a Q&A/book signing for her new memoir, The Naked Truth. Through traffic I rode my bike from way east downtown, through the midtown rush hour and on over to the upper west side, making it just in time to catch her in all her glory: the spray-tanned skin, the tight black dress, the perfectly manicured nails, the blown out hair, the utterly botoxed face and of course, nipples sticking right out to say, "Hello!" It just makes me love her even more.

...and of the most memorable moments of this otherwise fairly anti-climatic event: the insane fan in the front row that kept raising his hand to give his almost tearful monologues about how she is his inspiration, how fabulous he thinks she is, how she is such a great mom, etc. etc., etc, and how could I not love how she repeated several times throughout the Q&A in a completely solemn tone that she was, "not a victim, but a victor." Pure inspiration!

Moon and Venus in my 8th house

Lurid pleasures.

Here is a video of my two newest heroes. This couple came to the park today and set up a tent to get it on outside on this beautiful spring afternoon. The light hit the tent in just a way, so we were able to see most of the show. The craziest part, when they were done, as we all anxiously awaited them to emerge, out came a well-dressed couple that just walked away, leaving the tent, never to return. LOVE THEM!

New Moon In Taurus, in natal 12th

A 12th-house-light-bulb-day.

It's a much more relaxing life when you believe in the greater good of humanity... and to feel good about yourself for half-a-second, spot the kitty!

Mercury goes direct in Taurus

Put your best foot forward!

My new shoes arrived just in time to walk ahead, right out of mercury retrograde in my 12th...and it's kind of funny too, since the 12th house rules the feet. New shoes are just what the universe is saying I have to have...and here they are!

They are as cute as pie, completely eco-friendly, made out of recycled/recyclable plastics and breathable, from this Brazilian company called
Melissa, which ranked as one of the greenest companies in the world....and what is even cooler, I just recently found out, is that they are also bubble gum scented!!!! Of all ridiculously adorable things, I'm in love!!!

Happy Mercury Goes Direct Day and enough of the menacing drama it brought with its trials and tribulations of communication sabotage! (...and btw, if you are a Gemini or Gemini rising, this too means you should go out and buy yourself a new pair of shoes
— a cosmic mandate!)

Mercury retrograde in my natal 12th house

Ahh! Argh! WTF!

The craziest/stupidest thing happened to me today. I lost one of my tarot cards. I left my them by my window, which was barely open, but it was windy...and of all bizarro things, the card that jumped ship was the Knight of Wands, the card that represents departure!!!!!

I've had my cards for more than half my life, getting them at the mall back in my teen years one random evening after being oh-so curious about them for so long. My friend drove me and helped pick them out, of all uninteresting stories...but through the years they've had quite the adventure, traveling throughout the country, east coast, west coast, the south, to Canada, South America and over to Europe and Asia several times. They have met many and helped more than a few.

Since obviously they are tarot cards, I can't help but read into the fact that this card went missing. Do I have to leave something, is something leaving me, am I running from a responsibility of some sort, etc.?

Later in the evening a friend came by and over a bottle of Prosecco on my roof we pondered why this could be, all the while me trying to use my night vision to spot the lost card on some random rooftop...but no, and then my friend said something that struck a cord, "Maybe it's time to let it go."

He theorized maybe my cards were holding me back from responsibilities of some sort. He was a bit buzzed, so was I, so he kind of lost his train of thought after a while, but the message came in loud and clear. Not to say I don't do anything without asking my cards, because I don't. I hardly even remember the things I say to myself and would say overall they have been more of a help to others than me, but I love them like one of my dearest friends and can't even imagine not conversating with them every so often like a friend...but even the dearest of friends grow apart.

Anyway, I don't even know the point of this post, other than to complain and whine, but it's so the perils of the 12th house in Mercury Rx which plagues one with hidden messages and psychological twists, so I thought I would throw this onto a page. How annoying!!! I can't wait until this retrograde ends and I can get my sense of humor back.

*Note: Mercury retrograde officially ends on Tuesday, May 11th, @6:28 PM EST. However, Mercury won't return to the degree it was when the retrograde started until May 29th. Until then, good luck and don't count on anything!!!
