RHONJ Episode 7 After Party ~ The Love Zodiac

All the single ladies…listen UP! Entering the dating world can always be full of confusion and angst ~ but it just doesn’t have to be. As we continue commenting on this week’s Valentine’s episode I figured I’d keep giving you more about L-O-V-E.  This weekend in East Hampton I hosted an event to support Project Ladybug with my go-to astrologer Ophi Edut of The AstroTwins. We snuck in some time to give you some juicy inside tips on understanding compatibility with certain signs.

Decode the drama and be free! Get your hands on a copy of The Love Zodiac. I refer to it as my “bible” (relax…not “The” bible) of sorts about trying to understand the maze of dating.

Be sure to also follow The AstroTwins on Twitter @astrotwins. Tweet out with #lovezodiac and we’ll give away a copy of the book this month!

You heard Nicole offer to set me up in this episode. Enter Venus Retrograde. Yeah, not happening Nicole! What exactly is a Venus Retrograde? Here’s my girl Ophi to help you get your Astrostyle on!

What the hell is a retrograde?

New Moon – Making a Fresh Start

new moon 2We all make them; whether you call it a resolution, a wish, or a goal, we have a love affair with setting our deepest desires out into the universe. It’s one of my very favorite parts of New Years and birthday celebrations (second only to the parties themselves)! Every year, on these special days, we make the commitment to achieve our goals and make our dreams a reality. On those days only, we get a taste of the true power we have to command our own fate. They are days that we spend getting clear about what it is that we want to create for our lives. They are days known for shedding the old and openly embracing the new.

But what kind of power could we have over our lives and our situations if we took the time to make these intentions for ourselves on more than just one or two days out of the year? I’m sure you guys are expecting me to say something along the lines of, “Make every day your New Years. Every day is a fresh start,” or something like that. And while that is the […]

Aries New Moon: Fight For a Cause

It’s been a month since my voyage out to the desert, and another new moon is here! Today’s new moon is in Aries, which is the first sign of the zodiac. Unlike peaceful Pisces, Aries is more of a fighter. But hey, we all need to find that warrior in us, especially when it’s for a cause. (For more on this, my friends The AstroTwins wrote a great post on how to tap into the power of the Aries new moon to find your passion and purpose!)

Desert Zen: Pisces New Moon


When a new moon falls in your zodiac sign, it’s considered your “personal new year,” according to my friend and astrologer Ophi of The AstroTwins. So imagine how lucky I felt to be a short drive from the Nevada desert on March 11, the day of this year’s Pisces new moon.

Ophi, a few friends and I drove out to a dry lake bed (okay, okay, so were chauffeured there…in a chromed-out EmpireCLS Escalade…but as I always say, you can be glamorous and spiritual at the same time!) A little escape from the chaos of Vegas is just what I needed as a special little belated birthday treat.

My friends and I wrote our intentions, burned them at sunset and shared a magical night filled with inspirational banter and yes, a little potato launching. You heard that right: I shot my first potato into the horizon. I told you I was well rounded! ; )


Libra Full Moon: My “Monstermoon” Bath!

dina-bathtubSo today is the full moon in Libra, the sign of balance, peace and harmony. But this full moon has not been easy, and it seems that the stars are to blame. Several planets are pulling us all in a few different directions. Some astrologers are even calling this a “monster moon” because of all the intense energy. Anyone else multitasking like a maniac? Or feel like you’re having trouble juggling it all?

Guess that’s why this Pisces decided she needed a decadent soak in the tub—candlelight and all. When the going gets tough, a Pisces turns up the self-care. Probably a good idea for any sign!

My  friends The AstroTwins wrote a great post about this Libra full moon that you should read. It will help explain any chaotic feelings in the air today, and how to use change to your advantage. Read it here and enjoy!

Astrology: My Go-To Astrologers, The AstroTwins

dina-ophi-ladybugAnyone who knows me knows that I love astrology. I’m a proud Pisces (with Sagittarius rising & moon). Thanks to The AstroTwins, I finally understand what that means, and the importance of knowing your chart!

In early 2012, I had a reading with Ophi (one-half of The AstroTwins), and I was amazed by how accurate it was. She quickly became my honorary oracle and “spirit sister,” and as crazy as it sounds, I turn to her for advice for business and personal matters.

Ophi is more of an intuitive astrologer, and she has a background in coaching, too. The combination is really powerful, and I rely on her wisdom and guidance for all aspects of my life. She also keeps her Tarot cards handy whenever we hang out. Often, a ladies’ lunch or a girls’ night out becomes a spiritual soiree!

I’m so happy to share The AstroTwins’ gift with you on my site!
