The intersection of astrology and literature, ritual, wellness, pop culture, creativity — and, of course, wine. Expect guests, giveaways, & games — and get ready to go deep with us.
Your water-sign hosts are Andi Talarico, poet, book reviewer and Strega (@anditalarico) & Lisa Marie Basile, poet, author of Light Magic for Dark Times, & editor of Luna Luna Magazine (@lisamariebasile + @lunalunamag).
We want to hear from you! How do people get your sign wrong? Who are your favorite Scorpio poets? How do you use the zodiac as a healing tool? Tweet us attwitter.com/astrolushes
During this full moon, partial lunar eclipse, cancer season, Mercury RX recording the Astrolushes get into the Astrological houses, which fragrance notes work best with each sign (to help you build your own scents), pop culture (including Tiffany Haddish + a focus on foster care), Lana Del Rey as a cancer, plus lots of wine (it’s cancer season!). We also tackle astrological cultural appropriation and some of our future episode plans around astrological history and culture. Plus a bonus segment on why cancers are freaks in bed!
In this episode, we discuss what each and every planet means in relation to astrology, giving you a glimpse into which planet rules which sign, and what lessons the planets can teach us. If your Venus is in cancer, for example, what does that mean? We also go in-depth about our personal backgrounds, cultures, and life experiences + how we came to astrology, magic and ritual. Did Lisa lead a ritual to call upon the dark lord at 13? Take a guess! How did Andi come to Stregheria? Find out!
It was important to us that our listeners got to know us a little better, and because we're two SUPER emotional water signs, we really didn't hold back here. You were warned! In short, this episode deals in the heavy topics — like poverty and trauma — as much as it deals in the cosmos. So grab a cup of tea or a glass of red and tune in.
In this episode, we get into the depths with the Big 3: your sun sign, your moon sign, and your rising sign. We talk practical applications for this knowledge (dating! Job interviews! Parties! Shadow work! Writing!). We chat about our Twitter fans’ charts, and our recent favorites, including The Astrological Grimoire by Shewolfe & Gravesguard, the Sanctuary World app, Baron Fig, Light Magic for Dark Times and Billie Eilish. We also do a rapid-fire celebrity sign guessing game round and, of course, enjoy our fine red wine. And lots of it (but not too much like last time!).
Aries season is upon us! We talk about Aries qualities and Aries season lessons and the elements! Are you earth, water, air or fire? Join us as we get chat cities as signs and Hogwarts Houses. We also guess the signs of Aidy Bryant and John Keats, among others. We get into astrological ‘compatibility’, and why we think it could be reductive. . Also more wine. Also more Rihanna lyrics. And a shout out to author Colin Bedell. Visit us at twitter.com/astrolushes
In which we discuss what astrology means in the contexts of our REAL lives, reductive astrology memes, pop culture, folk magic and trauma. We also do a Rapid Fire Round of Guess That Sign & discuss future episodes. Background noises includes a warm roaring fire & distressed cat whining (he’s okay, he just wants attention). We also mention the podcast That’s So Retrograde, which has a great episode of Drunk Astrology, as well as a new podcast called Drunk Astrology + we send lots of love to Apothic Wine, and the new books HausWitch: Transform Your Home With Witchcraft. We also mention Luna Luna Magazine (lunalunamagazine.com) and the book Light Magic for Dark Times. You can follow us at @lisamariebasile @anditalarico @astrolushes!
