Christina and Sally Talk Astrology

What’s in store for the month ahead? Which Sun Signs are up? Which are, well, coasting? What dates should you take a risk and when should you stay at home? And why was last month so … last monthish?

Here’s my monthly podcast with my friend Sally Kirkman of Sally Kirkman Astrology.  Once a month, we take astrology by the scruff of its neck and give it a good shake out. We chat over a cup of strong coffee or weak tea about our favourite topic – the language of the stars.

New episode on the 18th of each month.
