Murdering Zodiac Myths–Scorpio, 1 1

MURDERING ZODIAC MYTHS A SERIES from DAR ALEXANDER   SCORPIO Slandered as the most villainous, self-serving bastard you don’t wanna mess with, Scorpio is the most butchered sign of all — and no mortal wants to feast on the meat. Scorpio is the “DARK” one. I already revealed that your lovely Libra, the scorpion’s claws, is the […]

MURDERING ZODIAC MYTHS A SERIES from DAR ALEXANDER   LIBRA Themis, titaness of law and order   Since we’re on the issue of JUSTICE this week, I say chaos is the balm for an unhealthy sense of order. So I’m even turning the order of the signs over on its happy head. In the mission to ignite […]


SkyCode Horoscopes for June 5-11, 2017

Codes to unlock the stars, not to be locked down by them. “Flowering Understanding and Love” The Buddha spoke about love coming from understanding, according to Buddhist teacher Thich Nhat Hanh in his captivating book, Old Paths, White Clouds. This idea appears to have much merit, if we pay attention to this week’s planetary line […]

SkyCode Horoscopes for November 21-27, 2016

Codes to unlock the stars, not to be locked down by them. Dancing with Pluto   Pluto’s dubbed by many modern astrologers as the ruler for Scorpio. I maintain that the ruler for Scorpio is Mars. I do this mainly because I believe early 20th century astrologers didn’t fully understand what rulership was about. We […]


SkyCode Horoscopes for September 5-September 11, 2016

Codes to unlock the stars, not to be locked down by them.  This week’s planetary SkyCodes remind me “Time in a Bottle,” by the late Jim Croce. My elementary school music teacher, Ms. Pados, introduced me to it. I liked the song as soon as she played it for us to sing in chorus. She […]

Meet the people of the Zodiac Lounge — Lauren McBride, Astrologer

    I have been a practicing astrologer since 2012. I couldn’t decide what to write in my bio (because #Libra) so I asked my son. Here’s what he said: “My mom? All she does is paint her nails and read Astrology books.” Valid. But I do other stuff too! Like practice as much yoga as […]


A reflection on a coming Mercury Retrograde

Weekly Horoscopes for September 29 – October 5, 2014 I’m writing these horoscopes from sunny, hot and beautiful Chandler, Arizona for the International Society for Astrological Research’s 2014 conference. Although virtual classes and conferences are great ways to learn subjects from the comfort of wherever you want to be, there’s nothing like being inspired by […]

That moment when you thought you could control how Pluto comes back...

Pluto returns with a new Libra moon

Weekly Horoscopes for September 22 – September 28, 2014   If two weeks ago you found yourself heavy, then this week is likely to be earth shaking or mind-blowing for a good number of you. For starters, starting on Monday, the Sun finally stops crossing its “t’s” and dotting its “i’s” to find its level […]


Fast and furious: Five Things To Consider with Mars in Libra (starting Friday!) 1

I can’t help but think about an odd synchronicity between the death of Paul Walker, the newest details about the Metro-North train derailment in the Bronx  and tonight’s new moon at nearly 11 degrees of Sagittarius. If we make allowance of a little more than a degree of orb, tonight’s new moon is conjoined to […]


At the cross… 1

Today’s “Eid Al Adha,” a special day for Muslims.  It’s a day of sacrifice and celebration, preceded by fasting. I can’t help but be struck how this Eid comes just before a lunar eclipse at 25-26 degrees of Aries/Libra. This is the same axis at which we celebrate Passover in the spring, just before Easter. Of […]


The Churning… 1

Today, Mercury “conjoins” with Saturn. Literally Mercury gets hooked at the hip with Saturn (from the Earth’s perspective). But what it means is that it’s a time for ponderous thoughts and some thoughts could get too heavy, even for speaking or writing. So it’s no wonder that I don’t feel inclined to write so much […]


Random thoughts on an analogy for Air signs… 2

In NYC, where I live, we have bodegas. They’re like your local corner store, stocked with a fresh meat deli and a sustainable mix of perishable and non-perishable items in about 800-1000 square feet.  It’s mostly for those items you need in the moment and don’t want to go far to get.  Unfortunately, you’ll only […]
