Remember, it was the Pluto in Scorpio era. We had mousse that led to flammable hair and geometrically applied blusher that you could see from Space.
We had aunts who modeled themselves on Dynasty characters and if we wanted to talk to someone or say we had the hots for them we had to phone them up or see them in person.
Luckily all the hair product and lurex thread served as a de facto aura shield.
Everybody smoked, Harvey Weinstein level hell was “a day at the office” and even our dressing gowns had shoulder pads.
And an Eighties Tarot card reading often involved a telling-off.
Or, the Tarot reader hitting on you. A certain style of person in that era associated the occult with getting laid.
