Introducing the Davide Torchio Salon
June 4, 2010

I have to share with you 2 very special people who I met by chance in New York (but we all know there are no accidents!)

Davide and Fabrizio set up the most amazing hair salon, the Davide Torchio salon, at 954 Lexington Avenue and have created a fabulous, chic space and salon, which is such a magnet for the creative types that abound in NYC.

The minute I walked into their salon on New Year’s Eve I felt immediately at home and very soon they showed me their horoscope charts which naturally they keep to hand and we talked about the year to come.

Davide is the most remarkable and talented stylist (he’s so in demand across the US that he practically lives in the air – which is fine for an Aquarian), Fabrizio the best and most charming Libran front of house.

They are soul mates to me – we immediately fell into that easy shorthand way of connecting and they have become my New York family. For anyone in need of tlc for their tresses and souls they are fabulous.

Mystical Mystic
June 1, 2010

The lure of magical Mystic in Connecticut is irresistible to an astrologer like me.

So, on the US Memorial Weekend it was off to a little clapboard cottage on the beach to star-gaze and feel the wonderful tranquil serenity of the coastal water off Long Island Sound.

Long Island

It did not disappoint. Better still, Mystic has its own Planetarium which is small, but perfectly formed.

The Planetarium at Mystic

With Venus, Saturn and Mars visible in the night sky and Jupiter coming up around 3 am, not to mention the amazing Sagittarian Full Moon it was a wonderful sight. There is hardly any light pollution in the area, just the lights from the boats and a few houses so the planets and stars were sensational and accompanied by a resident orchestra of cicadas.

The beauitful view

The whole town is beautiful, charming and fixated by mermaids – and somehow here you can almost believe they exist! Then there’s the obligatory drop into Mystic Pizza made famous by Julia Roberts in the film of the same name and the Mystic Drawbridge Ice Cream Parlour where you can indulge in pistachio and cashew nut ice-cream. What’s not to like!

Having a lightbulb moment!
May 27, 2010

Lightbulb moment

It must be Uranus arriving in Aries. Last night I was woken up in the small hours by the main bedroom light coming on. All by itself. If you think this is crazy, so did I. Stumbling out of bed to switch it off, back to sleep. 10 minutes later it happened again. These kinds of things always intrigue me. What does it mean I ask myself. Is it a wake up call, a lightbulb moment, a message, or do I simply need to call an electrician. Please post your thoughts…

Debbie in New York

Destiny of a Duchess
May 24, 2010

Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York has definitely felt the arrival of Saturn in Libra over the past few months.

Sarah Ferguson caught in a 'sting'

She’s turned 50, lost her U.S. source of income, built up massive debt and caused a diplomatic incident over her Turkish TV documentary. Now she is the subject of a hugely embarrassing exposé for pocketing thousands of dollars in exchange for access to Prince Andrew.

Saturn is due back to Libra on July 21 when the karmic consequences will be made clear. The incident is brought to light on the Venus-Pluto opposition (falling directly on Fergie’s own Saturn in early Capricorn). This aspect is the chief undercover operator and dealer of dirty deeds.

When the Queen’s favourite daughter in law, Sophie Wessex was ‘stung’ by a British newspaper for the fake sheik debacle she was subsequently sheltered by the royal family. Fergie unfortunately is going to be hung out to dry – the royals’ modern equivalent of being hung, drawn and quartered.

Teany Café Is The Best
May 24, 2010

Out in Lower Eastside on Sunday I chanced upon the Teany Café in Rivington Street.

The fantastic Teany Cafe

This slightly grungy area is shabby chic personified – brimming with vintage shops selling everything from old 30’s dresses to flower power bell-bottoms.

The Teany Café is terrific. Lavender lemonade iced tea with fresh lemon juice anyone? Or how about a ‘teanychino’? Ingredients: Roasted mate (don’t ask), almond bits, vanilla bean, cornflower blossoms, sunflower petals with milk. You can snack on delights such as edamame hummus or chocolate macaroon cake. They also sell teany tiny cans of tea – with names to die for – Organic Darjeeling First Flush, Masala Cha or how about Hairy Crab Oolong (Cancerians would love it)!

Visit Teany’s website to check out their amazing range of teas.

Constellations At Grand Central
May 21, 2010

Grand Central constellation

Saw the fab astronomical constellation ceiling at Grand Central Station. This is my kind of place and the beauty of it would make any commuter feel better! Painted in 1912 by Paul Cesar Helleu the sky is in fact illustrated backwards with the stars displaced. Some say it’s all due to the Precession of the Equinoxes – others that it’s a simple mistake. But one thing not in the original celestial scheme of things is the hole just above Pisces where a piece of plaster has been cut out to make way for a missile exhibit in 1957. Whilst Uranus spends its final few days in Pisces I think it’s a graphic representation!

Diana Ross rams it at Radio City
May 21, 2010

Diana Ross wows the crowd

For soul diva Diana Ross, the Aries spirit is still as fabulous as ever. I saw her at a New York’s packed to the rafters Radio City Hall last night and she shimmied in her sparkly frocks and belted out those golden oldies with retro film clips and stills of her from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s playing behind her. Uranus arrives in Aries next week – it will put an end to the Silence of the Lambs…

Meanwhile at MOMA…
May 21, 2010

Marina Abramovic's exhibition at MOMA

An unmissable exhibition recently opened at the Museum of Modern Art involves sitting and staring at a performance artist. For as long as you want, or it takes. Just staring at them staring is quite surreal. Marina Abramovic is a Sagittarius with Mercury, Venus and Jupiter close together in Scorpio – she can spook anyone out.
