Capricorn 24° (January 14)
This day will end with chicken from Sal’s and some Lobster Dumplings as dessert from Mews. Long walk through town in the cold. Doodle loodle loo Doodle loodle loo. Okay I need to start wording changes to what will be my new proposal What began as “a word-of-mouth phenomenon” (Time) and grew into a “marketing triumph” (Vanity Fair), Sextrology: the astrology of sex and the sexes is the most critically acclaimed and universally celebrated astrology book of its generation. Since hitting stores in 2004, it has appeared in fifteen foreign editions, sold upwards of 250,000 physical copies worldwide and it continues to grow in sales and popularity both here and abroad, right alongside the profile of its authorship, namely Starsky + Cox. As a brand and equal partnership, the duo created an array of compelling content in various forms and media, conducting a private consultancy and event business, making broadcast appearances, and staging live performances at important venues in New York and other cities. Already a seasoned writer, journalist and editor before publishing the brand’s first book—serving on numerous mastheads and contributing interviews and features to top magazines and newspapers, including The New York Times and The Boston Globe—Quinn Cox undertook the writing of the Starsky + Cox books as well as the many articles, columns, performances pieces and all creative content generated under the shared byline, his partner playing the role of editor. Quinn Cox—that’s me! And for the first time in my career as a writer of all things zodiacal and metaphysical, and an experienced astrologist, I am psyched to be going solo in publishing this exciting new book under my own steam and name (nom de plume though it is). It’s been said that our brand and books reinvented the genre—the astrological wheel, as it were—dragging the subject out of the occult aisle and ushering it straight into the zeitgeist. The books are smart yet accessible—just academic enough to have made their way onto universities’ syllabuses, while remaining widely appealing to a pop sensibility. I gleefully explore so-called heady realms of mythology and archetype, but only as they relate to modern life and real human experience. Astrology is jam-packed with symbolism, and I am wont to explore every bit of it. I’m singularly devoted to its study, and spend my days, primarily, as a humanistic astrologer in private practice consulting clients. It’s no secret that there are famous names among them, as a number of celebrities have sung the brand’s praises in the press and media. Of course, I welcome such endorsements, and have stockpiled these notable names in anticipation of this next book. For now, let’s catch you up with a little backstory:
To view the original Sabian Symbol themed 2015 Cosmic Blague corresponding to this day: Flashback! The degree point of the Sabian Symbol may at times be one degree higher than the one listed here. The Blague portrays the starting degree of for this day ( 0°, for instance), as I typically post in the morning, while the Sabian number corresponds to the end point (1°) of that same 0°-1° period.
Typos happen. I don’t have a proofreader. And I like to just write, post and go! Copyright 2022 Wheel Atelier Inc. All Rights Reserved.
