Please another

Hello! As a poet and astrology nerd, I’m writing to say that I miss you both! Also, what’s a Scorpio sun, Cancer moon, Scorpio Asc., Uranus in Scorpio to do besides check every day for a new show!?? :)

More episodes!!

I love the show (and Dorothea and Alex) and hope more are on the way. Can you interview Kaveh Akbar?

filoweco ,

Super basic lacks depth

Fun, shallow conversations about sun sign assumptions. This is the kind of sun star astrology that gives astrology a bad rap.
