Happy Solstice! The longest day of the year is coming up and during a time that is/used to be my favorite time of the year. It makes sense that the winter holidays coming during Sagittarius, ruled by Jupiter, the bringer of joy, as the fire signs like having a good time, and Sagittarius likes to … Continue reading Pre-Solstice Transits and No Winter Wonderland
No, really. You weren't. I'll stop you right there and repeat: You. Were. Not. Born. On. A. Cusp. You were not born on a cusp. Period. I don't care if your birthday is October 23rd, November 22, or December 22nd and for the love of the universe: Virgos, stop telling me that you were born … Continue reading You were not born on a cusp.

In a sense, I have a stepdaughter and now a stepson I don’t actually know very well. Someday, I may be a young step-grandmother. I actually like that idea a lot.
