A Look Ahead

posted by Lynn Hayes

Financial markets defy astrological predictions

posted by Lynn Hayes

The Art of Compatibility

posted by Lynn Hayes

The Lovers by Jiri Borsky Not surprisingly, one of the questions that most often comes in for the advice column is “Are we compatible” or “Will we stay together.” I like this quote on the subject: What counts in making […]

Cory Lidle’s Plane Crash

posted by Lynn Hayes

Why Eris? Why not Sedna or Quaoar?

posted by Lynn Hayes

Ever since the tenth planet was discovered as UB313, nicknamed Xena and now officially named Eris, it’s been calling to me. I don’t know why Eris speaks to me and not the other recently discovered planets, Sedna and Quaoar, but […]

Mark Foley’s Fall from Grace.

posted by Lynn Hayes
