The June Swoon of Gemini’s New Moon

I never liked being called a chick. I certainly never liked “bitch” or “slut,” though some people embrace both terms. But I am and always will be a broad. I mention this because while we’re knee-deep in Gemini season, self-definition and redefinition is the name of the game.

You know what else is the name of the game? Collaboration and communion. Continue Reading →

Interstellar Eve Babitz

Eve in her 50s.

Happy Eve Babitz Day! As a Gen Xer forced to spend hundreds of dollars I didn’t have in the 90s to track down Eve Babitz’s out-of-print books, there’s a part of me that’s irritated the millennial girls think they’ve discovered the brilliant writer, groupie-adventuress, and auto-muse. Just a tiny part, though, because everyone should have an Eve who gives Lilith a run for her money. Every female-identified person in particular should have a star-fucking, bridge-burning, convention-flouting, binary-busting, sexy and smart, lush and arch, totally mean and totally kind, self-identified-spinster role model like Evie.

Taurus Season? This Metaphysician Is In!

Taurus season is my favorite season—a time of new beginnings and solid foundations, of practical magic and gentle progress. As of today’s new moon in Taurus, it’s also a time to manifest graceful, step-by-step change, especially when it comes to your financial and creative resources. Don’t force these goals. Let them come to you, ideally as you take a moment to breathe in May’s sweet air.

Venus rules Taurus, but in the most stabilizing ways. In this sign she is about natural bounty, living in rhythm with Mama Earth. Not for nothing was Mother Mary, that beacon of radical receptivity, born this month. For the next few weeks, life is one big pink peony—-gorgeous at every stage, pleasing to every sense. Which is to say: I’m always excited to see my clients but reading for them right now is like filling my office with spring’s most beautiful blooms. If you’ve been considering booking an intuition session, may I suggest doing so now? No matter what’s going on in your life, we’ll have so much fun.
