Moving on . . .

While I’ve already bragged that my new book is half-finished, I was still completing the sixth chapter up until a few minutes ago. Now it’s done — officially! Moving on from Virgo to Libra shouldn’t be difficult. I feel as if I know both signs quite well. I’m not a Virgo, but I have a lot in common with most Virgos. […]

I’m Seeing Double

A second full moon in Sagittarius arrives this Monday, just hours before the solstice. Things like this don’t happen very often — once in a blue moon, as the saying goes.

I don’t have an especially large eighth house (it’s about 32º), but it’s big enough for this to happen. The first […]

Typical Pisces Glamour

I’m still reeling over yesterday’s Gucci show at Westminster Abbey and how press darling Alessandro Michele has managed to make his everything-but-the-kitchen-sink style into a marketing sensation. Everything about Gucci right now makes me want to avoid Gucci. In my book, “Cosmically Chic,” I portray Pisces as the anything-goes sign. Pisces style is about piling on things that don’t match […]
