Hi everyone, If you are on media or literary Twitter, this headline does not surprise you. If you have no idea what's going on, I am going to give the simplest of overviews. Other people — Jude Doyle (start here), Britni de la Cretaz, Emily VanDerWerff

Hi all, This one took a minute. A head’s up that it’s about Roe, and Cancer energy, and how we show up for each other. Also, just a reminder that my signature course Astrology for Writers: How to Make Your Writing Work for You is currently available for immediate download for the next two weeks only.

Hi friends, I’ve been writing this newsletter for two years now (its solar return was earlier this month — she’s an Aquarius!). I truly cannot express how grateful I am to all of you for reading, and for the conversations that these missives spark.

Hi friends, Normally, I have an essay for you, but this newsletter is going to be a little more brief, addressing the tenor of tonight’s full moon. Health issues have reared their head (connecting, ironically/predictably enough, to the New Moon in Aquarius

Hi friends, Welcome to eclipse season! The four eclipses of the year arrive in pairs: today’s, April 30th followed up by one on May 15th, with the next set arriving in the fall, October 25th and November 8th (election day — god, this country needs an astrologer, among other things). Mark your calendars. It’s gonna be a ride.

Hi everyone, Today is busy (the Winter Solstice! The Great Conjunction!), but the tl;dr of this newsletter is… don’t feel like you actually have to do anything immediately at this moment. If you’re feeling pressure, or like you’re going to somehow “miss out” on the astrology, take a deep breath. In. And out.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been listening to the Encanto soundtrack pretty much non-stop. The song that is most resonating with me in this moment is “What Else Can I Do?”, a duet between the heroine Mirabel and her practically-perfect-in-every-way older sister Isabela.

The subscription includes a detailed guide to every month’s upcoming astrology and how it impacts writers. Best days to pitch or revise? It’s all in there. It also includes specialty newsletters on planetary events like major ingresses, Mercury Retrograde (coming up at the end of the month!), and more.

The writing is not coming as easily these days. It’s Aries season, and Mercury — the planet of communication, the planet that governs writers and our thought processes — is also in Aries, burning fast and furious. This is a setup for new insights, and theoretically, for some, probably quite a bit of new writing. But for me, focus has been fleeting, and the words are few.

For much of the last month, my apartment smelled of pine cones. I had impulsively purchased them at my local grocer here in Brooklyn — something seasonal, something to harken back to the country wilderness of my youth in the cityscape of my adulthood. Their scent quickly overwhelmed the wildly overpriced woodsy candles I burn 12 hours a day, every day.

Hi everyone, A quick reminder that my self-paced course Astrology for Writers: How to Make Your Writing Work for You will only be available for download until midnight tonight! If I’m totally realistic with myself, this is likely the last time the course will be released in 2022; with book promotion already kicking up (HERETIC comes out in October), I have a feeling that’s going to consume the rest of my calendar year.

Hi friends, Astrologically, there isn’t anything particularly profound about the clock striking midnight, pushing us over into a new year. Personally, I celebrate the new year on the winter solstice; other traditions celebrate the first New Moon of the calendar year (sometimes called the Chinese New Year), which this year is the New Moon in Capricorn on January 13th. But there is something undeniable around the collective energy we all put into the transition from one year into the next.

Mecca Woods is the kind of astrologer who takes the horoscope off the page and into your everyday life. She does, and has done, it all. TV? Check. (TLC’s Stargazing.) Podcasts? Check — her long-running Stars on Fire, with fellow Sag astrologer Janelle Belgrave, is one of the best out there. You can find her astrological savvy on jazz albums and even on beer bottles.

Hi all, This one breaks form for the first time in the history of the newsletter. We’re still talking about the oncoming eclipse season, the first of which is Monday, November 30th, and there are still writing prompts for your sign down at the bottom if you’d like to skip. But we’re opening with some personal writing — hope you enjoy.

New Moon in Leo August 18, 10:42 PM ET The New Moon in Leo arrives with all the energy of a coronation. Leo energy is king shit: the King of Wands in the tarot, quite literally—all passionate, bold fire, incapable of staying in their seat, needing to get up and move and make shit

Welcome to astrology for busy bitches! Thank you for your patience; many of you know that this first newsletter was supposed to go out yesterday. It was delayed due to a variety of backend issues, which are now thankfully worked out. However! To express extra gratitude for your patience, today’s newsletter is

The New Moon in Scorpio arrives in the dead of night, just after midnight here on the East Coast (12:07a on November 15th). New Moons are, generally, a time to begin, but in Scorpio, that is not so much the case. The moon, generally, craves the creation of safety, of nurturing: at home in the connective waters of Cancer, exalted in the fertile fields of Taurus. But Scorpio is a sign that just wants to compost, to sort through what in our lives is going through a period of rot and decay, that is more invested in challenging and understanding our relationship to power than in messages of unity.

Hi everyone, I am continuing to tinker with how best to present the information in this letter, which, for the new paid subscribers (welcome & thank you!) always goes out at the top of the month. Perpetually trying to organize this for you in the most helpful way, especially for those of you who copy/paste the notes into your calendars! Feedback is alway…
