New moon in Capricorn tonight, abutting a solar eclipse no less. Capricorn is a cardinal sign–a leader, a head goat, a captain of industry–and I should know, being a bossy Cappy if ever there were one.

PS I’m doing new year/new moon Ruby Intuition readings this and next Sunday and still have some free slots. Message me to set up your in-person or video-chat session.

You can tell when a witch is in her element because her eyes start looking wildly different from each other; right now, I’m positively cockeyed. So while I usually just see clients on the weekend, I’m booking sessions all day tomorrow and New Years Day. Let’s chart your 2019 through tarot cards, astrology and the wisdom of your highest, most beautiful self. To schedule an intuitive reading for you or a loved one in person or via video chat, message me or read more here.

But I also know that God is not always concerned with such details, and that their love helped them develop as humans and writers. That he was unseasonably proud of his wife’s artistic development. That she professionally outstripped him before succumbing to a voracious cancer a few weeks shy of her 48th birthday. Continue Reading →
