Next order of business: I GOT ENGAGED!!!!!!! On our 4 year anniversary Pablo took me sledding and now we're gonna have a wedding! 🛷 👰 It’s a little scary how hard I’m leaning in to the corny vibes of getting engaged / getting married. Like...I really want matching airbrushed t-shirts for a Bachelorette Party in the Florida Keys. WHO AM I? #pabloandstevie #itsagoldsteinthing. You can hear the entire engagement story on this week’s episode of What’s Your Sign? It’s our opening convo up top, as part of our void-of-course moon episode!
Take that Sun sign astrology! A Leo King and a Taurus Queen, defying the odds!!!!!! Sextile Moons in harmony <333333333

SO WHAT’S UP WITH THE SKY RN?
Right now it is Pisces Season, I think we were all ready for some water in the sky. Don’t get me wrong, Aquarius cluster time was...uh...interesting...but I’m already in my head 24/7/365. I’m ready to get into my heart. Mars has recently spent some time in Taurus and will be moving in to Gemini on March 3rd, where it will stay until April 23rd. Mutable energy, hello, nice to see you!!! Mars, the action planet, in social Gemini is big collaborator energy. If you have had something you really wanted to work on with a partner or partners, this could be a super-charged time for that. Put out the feelers! Has your project been sitting collecting dust? Have a trusted friend give you notes! LET’S MOVE PEOPLE!!!!
The New Moon in Pisces happens on March 13, and a few days after that Mercury will also move into Pisces on March 15. Woooof that little Mercury Retrograde session we all just had. Who else felt that one? I’m so ready for some fresh water. Maybe it felt extra powerful with all that influence from Uranus & Mars in Taurus cuz mama’s entire laptop exploded and I lost two recordings of What’s Your Sign?...tragic. BUT on the flip side, that technology meltdown I experienced really helped me reevaluate my relationship with my gadgets and I am now motivated to take better care of them and not be such a screenshot hoarder. Annnnyyyways, later this month we will ram into Aries Season on March 20th and the next day Venus joins the Sun in the sign of Aries. We end the month with a Full Moon in lovely Libra on the 28th :) I hope this change over into more Mutable Water & Cardinal Fire will spark some conversation and action on what we need to feel and act like ourselves <3 Unedited and unapologetic, do no harm.

WHAT I’M DIGGING
Should I retitle this to ~*Taurus consumerism corner*~? Anyways, some things that have been sitting pretty with me:
UGG SLIPPERS - Trend report!!!!! These slippers are cute, stylish, and warm for the feet. Thank you so much to Ashley Ray for encouraging me to purchase them! Check out Ashley’s newsletter on Substack: TV I Say with Ashley Ray, for the most comprehensive place on the internet for TV show reviews, recaps, and recs! (Yes this was a double recommendation bullet point boooooom)
The Wilds - So I watched this show for a special project you’ll be hearing about soon, and hoooonestly it hits such a sweet spot for me. If you are into Lost or Riverdale, this show is an amazing blend of the two. *DISCLAIMER* I thought the last two episodes were a bit bleh, but I was in LOVE with 8/10 eps so that’s pretty good* And it’s coming back for a 2nd season!
The Reagans - I’m only seen 3 of the 4 episodes, but if you love a good old historical doc and want your hate for the Reagans rejuvenated, this is the series for you! I haven’t gotten to the astrology episode yet but I did order Joan Quigley’s book. Shout out to my podmate Julia Loken for the rec! History buffs come thru.
My Scorpio pal Nick invited me to this intro lecture on Jung and Astrology and it was really cool! I’m still debating taking the course at this time (only cuz of my stacked life atm) but it’s fairly affordable and seems pretty rad for those interested in astrology and psychology (I know many of you are therapists/work in mental health). Here’s the link! <<I’m not affiliated with this course in anyway, just popped in and thought it was neat>>
I’m always on the quest for a good lip stain and these ones called It'S SKIN Colorable Draw Tint have really impressed me. It goes on creamy and lasts! Link here!
In terms of astrology books I’m reading The Inner Sky by Steven Forrest. Capricorn legend. If you want a no non-sense book about understanding astrology, this is the one. It’s very straightforward and easy to comprehend. You know a Cap is not gonna over complicate things!
You ever have a moment where you order something but you get something else, and the something else is something you would NEVER get for yourself…but now that you have it you’re like, how did I ever live without this? So that’s the meet cute story of me and these COSRX Hyaluronic Moisture Pads. I’m a broad who uses washable make up wipes, so I tend to think of pads as ~wasteful~ but these ones WOOOO they make my skin feel so good and it’s a nice little treat at the end of the day or the start of my morning. As Sheryl Crow once sang, you’re my favorite mistake.
Barb and Star Go To Vista Del Mar - I coughed up the $20 bucks to rent this video on demand and WOW!!!!!! A modern day Romy & Michele with the absurd elements of Harold & Kumar. Buddy comedies, I live. Barb and Star made me so so so so happy. That is all. Pure slumber party movie joy!
Radiooooo is an app that I learned about from a Kacey Musgraves interview in Rolling Stone and it’s pretty nice for those of us who often go “UGH I JUST NEED SOME PRETTY MUSIC TO WORK OR VIBE TO”. Ta-da, meet Radiooooo: you select a country and an era and it plays music from that time. It usually plays stuff I can’t even find on Apple Music or Spotify. My only note is that some countries have limited amounts of music (maybe its a new app thing or maybe Greenland in the 70s had a limited discog) but either way it’s been a nice little addition to my music listening!
CANCER RISING COOKING CORNER
:::Vegan Bone Broth Recipe:::
Scoff all you want at the paradox, but I love sippin’ broths and I’m a minimal meat kinda gal. So I created a recipe for vegan bone broth! I combed through a bunch of recipes online and made a mash up of my own that I’ve been doing for a couple years now. The mushrooms and seaweed are a nice little digestion aide and it’s very easy to make. All you need is the ingredients and a crockpot!
In a large crockpot, slow cooker, whatever combine the following ingredients:
3 stalks of celery chopped
3 carrots chopped
3 cloves of garlic chopped
1 big chunk of fresh ginger chopped
8 oz of shiitake mushroom (or sub whatever mushroom you like)
1/4 cup dried seaweed
turmeric (sprinkle as much as you want!)
10-20 raw peppercorns
salt to taste
10 to 12 cups of water
Slow cook for 8-10 hours (I usually do it overnight) and then strain with a cheese cloth. DO NOT STRAIN IT HOT! Let it cool.
Oh and in other food news I tried the TikTok pasta it was good!!!! Very easy, very tasty, I followed this recipe: https://www.delish.com/cooking/recipe-ideas/a35421563/baked-feta-pasta-tiktok/. Some pix:
Alright y’all that’s the end. I love creating this newsletter for you and thanks again for supporting me, my work, and my weird little lists.
Love you lots!
