Off the Charts

Aquarius: Hey, neighbor! Am I going to see you tomorrow at Virgo’s baby shower?

Pisces: Sadly, I won’t be able to make it. Mercury’s gone totally retrograde since I had the baby; I think she needs some one-on-one mommy time.

A: Why don’t you just bring both kids along? The Galaxy Girls will be there; they’ll be able to help.

P: With babysitting?

A: No, you loon! The Galaxy Girls are a trio of ace astrologers with expertise in motherhood, relationships, and life purpose. They read charts at moms’ gatherings.

P: So they can tell me what’s up with Mercury?

A: Even better. They’ll give specific advice on how a Pisces like you can help her fulfill her life’s goals. Or you can just take a break and focus the reading entirely on you.

P: Lord knows we moms rarely get to be the stars.
