The Seventies Vampirella Zodiac

Seventies Astrology Art like this launched the “You must be a Scorpio?” trend. It took Astrology from the Hippy Shop’s fusty confines into the swingers circuit and suburban cheese fondu belt. Speculating on Geminis ‘going both ways‘ was acceptable repartee, and someone made a fortune selling Zodiac Sex Positions Iron-On patches.

A Saturn Return Success Story

Saturn Return success stories are always preceded by a prolonged phase of obsessive work, self-doubt, rejection, and fluctuating finances. You could vary the ratios and throw in a toothache or sore neck but that’s the sum of it. But with persistence, the results can be unbelievable.
