In the last 100 years, the number of marriages per 1,000 people has steadily declined (outside of the postwar bump of the 1950s). Over the same time period, both men and women who do choose to tie the knot do so at an increasingly older age, while the number of people cohabiting, coparenting, and raising children solo have all climbed. These might seem like depressing statistics to those in favor of traditional coupling, but we’d like to make the case that the institution is alive and thriving…

Thrive Beneath the Skies: Winter 2023

Let go of what you were taught.
After Libra’s autumn equinox sent our relationship and business dynamics into a frenzied upheaval, we needed some time to rediscover what’s truly worth investing in and some space to feel comfortable asserting it. Voluntarily or not, you were positioned to question the accepted patterns which defined your relationships with love and money. Now we’re taking this renegotiated value system for a test-drive. This winter the sun will make its way across the constellations of Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, and Aquarius; these represent the eight, ninth, tenth, and eleventh houses of the zodiac, respectively.

Eat it, treat it, put it on your face; castor oil is an age-old quick-fix to a host of common complaints. The magic behind its countless uses lies in the castor plant’s uniquely high concentration of a special organic triglyceride called ricinoleic acid.
