“To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, a time to reap that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;

A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;

A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.” — Ecclesiastes 3:1

  20. Kelly, I am confused about Saturn being in Virgo? I thought that Saturn was in Sag? Please explain. I feel so restricted this year.

  21. Yes, Saturn is in Sagittarius until December 21, 2017. This is when he enters Capricorn. I do not follow where you are getting Saturn in Virgo? Be well.

  22. Hi Kelly, love to you! I thought Saturn is in Virgo’s root cellar, and that is why Virgo’s are so retricted right now…?

  23. I love you too miss Scarlett. Yes, Saturn is in your root cellar because Saturn is in Sagittarius which rules your fourth house.

  24. That sucks Kelley, this energy has caused so many retrictions this past year. I am trying to stay positive…! Love you Kelley! Thank you so much for your valued optimism!

  25. When does Saturn leave Virgo’s fourth house Kelley? I hope soon.

  26. Hello Kelley, you totally explained the Virgo blocks happening in my life in your 2017, 2018 podcast! Thank you! I can’t wait until Saturn leaves my root cellar!

  27. Linda Iris Rozner

    Dear Kelly, I am Leo, with Virgo rising, both my MC and Moon in Gemini. I continue to read, as you know were in a Ascension year. My year of birth is 1950. So, I am a old soul in this POP at form, I follow the combo of western and Eastern approaches in this life. Love is on the way and trying to maintain. Messages are received in my spirit before they manifest in my life, Appreciate you ! Great Energy about you

  28. Curious of your opinion Kelley ,so since the nodes are shifting to leo-aquarius how does that affect the same node combination of leo aquarius in the natal chart? Is it like a return?

  29. What will Saturn moving to the second house do to Sagitauurs sun & moon
    I think my Saturn birthchart was forth house in cancer family problems
    Will it give me money problems when it leaves Sag?

  30. Help Kelly! I am so worried now that I signed a contract after being interviewed at a job fair with a school district to work for the fall 2017 school year. The offer seemed to good to be true. What should I do now? What can I expect now that I signed the contract on April 1, 2017? I’m so worried now because it says to not sign any contracts and I did already :/


  32. Life and business goes on. Live your life with no regrets.

  33. Kelley, you rock! I heard you say in a recent podcast that “the Earth is ascending”. I have been haunted for decades by our destruction of the Earth’s ecosystems, and am wondering if you could write more on this subject; or perhaps a personal consultation would help.
