Happy Virgo—I mean, Labor—Day! It is a happy astrological time indeed, for the work-lovers among us. For everyone else, the planets are primed to help us get more purpose and satisfaction from our careers. As a Capricorn star-translator, I would be remiss if I didn’t offer a little aid toward this end. Hence, I am doing AMAZING LABOR MONTH CAREER MINI-READINGS for $20 a pop.

*Begin manly movie trailer voice* In a world…where bosses forget to send emails…where text messages never arrive…where computers crash for no apparant reason…and vacation plans change AT THE LAST MINUTE…it’s happening again. Mercury Retrograde: She’s Baaaack! Some of you may be already dreading the Merc rx, others rolling your eyes, but how many of you are looking forward to it? In my opinion: not nearly enough! Yes, Mercury retrograde can be a pain in the butt. Yes, it can also pass […]
This post originally appeared on Little Red Tarot. A while back, I was talking to an adored friend about her latest round of love drama. Another long-distance romance that was fun for six months, then fizzled. “Why can’t I have a good relationship?” she said. So of course, we looked at her chart. When I put in her birth info, I took in the most basic astrological picture of what she’s looking for in relationships (Venus in Sag, in the 3rd house, opposite Mars […]
This post originally appeared on Little Red Tarot. Mars – the principle of anger and selfishness – is not an easy planet.

Cheesy lines like this teaser from Linda Goodman’s 1978 classic Love Signsmade me roll my eyes practically out of my head: A Scorpio woman…will expect a Sagittarius man to pay for his sins. Aside from the assumption that everyone reading the book was straight (so 1978!), it also suggested that women and men inhabited separate universes […]
A phrase appears repeatedly throughout novelist Jeannette Winterson’s books: “What you risk reveals what you value.” She might have been preparing us for the shift of big-gun outer planet, Uranus, into Taurus, the sign of personal values, money and what we “own” (including our bodies and planet). Everything we value as a culture–and everything you value personally–is subject to change now. The role and form of money is shifting (cash headed the way of compact discs) and micro-apartments and tiny dwellings might be […]
