    Hi Joy and Tracy!! Hello from Cincinnati! I love listening to your podcasts while I’m at work redacting documents or copying, which I guess mean I get paid to listen to you two be awesome on a weekly basis. I have a question/best idea ever for you two. For as much as you two talk about Cookie Butter, I had to go try it. I did, and it’s damn good. I was struck with an idea yesterday that you probably both already thought up, but if not, hear me out: Cookie Butter buttercream icing. I mean, you can have peanut butter buttercream, no? Also nutella buttercream (divine!)? So I thought why not? My question, however, is what cupcake would you pair it with? Do I go the delicate route with a nice vanilla cupcake, or all out with something chocolatey? For a work function I was considering Joy’s vegan chocolate avocado cake made into cupcakes with the experimental Cookie Butter buttercream icing. Anyhow, keep doing what you two are doing because I love listening to it! If you swing through Cincinnati, we’ll have some bourbon together. Thanks, bye!

    greetings from an english taurean! my mum says the main thing about my star sign is a deep, deeeep love of food (also evident in my granny, who eats her pudding first).

    i absolutely love your podcasts, they brighten the rainy days over here!! this one had me snorting aloud into my tea. keep up the awesome, inspiring work, your blogs are 2 of my favourites! xxx


  • Nikkilooch June 21, 2012 at 5:39 am

    I am an aries. And an interesting fact, my husband is an aries, too. Right after we got married I was applying for my passport and the woman helping me saw our birthdays and told me without hesitation that our marriage was doomed because we were born a week and a year apart. I always took it as a good sign that we were exactly one year and one week apart, but this woman single-handedly put doubt in very young mind. Well, so far we’ve been married 6 years. Take that passport lady.

    Tracy, every morning I wake up HUNGRY. I totally feel your pain. My husband wakes up and eats a banana and is ready to tackle the day. I need more.


  • Caitlin June 21, 2012 at 6:20 am

    Virgo here, ladies!



  • Magar@thefullwoman.com June 21, 2012 at 6:51 am

    I am totally obsessed with astrology (Capricorn here!) and so is my boyfriend (Pisces). The two of us have this weird game we’ve been playing for years where we try to figure out the astrological signs of strangers. It started about five years ago when we first met (the obsession with astrology was something we had in common), we used to watch a TON of movies together and after a while we started getting into the habit of trying to guess what an actor’s astrological sign was and checking it on IMDB (and we got pretty good!). After a while we branched out to trying to guess the astrological signs of other people in the theater. “That guy with the hat and the tattoos, TOTAL Gemini”. We’re weirdos I know. I can’t resist though, I do the same thing when I start reading a new blog, I HAVE TO to a “birthday” search to check what sign they are to check against my predictions. It’s a sickness.


  • Brittany June 21, 2012 at 8:24 am

    I’m a Gemini and my best friend is a Capricorn. She turned me on to you guys because she said you guys are us..which five minutes into your first podcast I realized immediately. I now listen to you every day at work when I’m faced with super boring tasks. You guys keep me laughing out loud at my desk and thinking of all the good times with my best friend through even the worst days. Thanks for brightening my day :)


  • Katrine June 21, 2012 at 8:28 am

    I read Astrology zone because you told me to, and I do everything you tell me to, of course. It said if I am artistic it will take off this month. I have always been the creative type, but I picked up my paint brushes for the first time in years this past week. It also said something surprising would happen on June 20th (yesterday). My husband surprised me with tickets to a Def Leopard concert. I have never been a big fan of rock, but I had the best time, also surprising! Maybe there’s something to this Astrology thing!


  • Amanda Leigh June 21, 2012 at 8:30 am

    I’m also a Gemini – with my birthday only 4 days after Joy’s! And, Tracy, you completely cracked me up with your comments about Geminis loving skincare/beauty products – because I’m totally there. I’m even a Mary Kay consultant I love them so much! “Hi, I love skincare and makeup products – so let me share them with you.” :-)

    Thank you for another fantastic podcast ladies. You make my Thursday mornings totes awesome!


  • Megan June 21, 2012 at 8:34 am

    Can’t wait to listen, but in the meantime I totally read my Astrology Zone business and I’m so glad it approves of my vacation at the end of August and now I know not to go on any dates until July. Whew!


  • Erin Hess June 21, 2012 at 9:10 am

    Hi Joy and Tracy! I just finished listening to this podcast. I listen to the podcasts while I do yoga on my own at the gym. When Joy was talking about her shake/shave typo I happened to be in a headstand. I was laughing so hard I nearly fell over. I wish I had taken a picture of my yoga mat at the gym since this is generally where I listen to you lovely ladies. Next time.

    I am a Pisces.

    Thanks for good ear time!


  • ashley June 21, 2012 at 9:13 am

    virgo! i love astrology too. i used to try and guess people’s signs. i haven’t been as into astrology recently as i used to but am getting inspired to get back into it! and tracy, i’m definitely hungry in the morning too. also, i have a friend that says she gets super full from eating a large apple – like it’s basically a meal to her. that’s crazy talk to me.



  • haley June 21, 2012 at 9:46 am

    guys. guys. guys. seriously… how didn’t i know about this earlier?? i’m a pisces, and i’m transitioning between second and third year of medical school… and astrology zone was totally right on. i took my first set of boards on june 18th… and i kind of wish i’d read this before! i think it’s time to get back into astrology. also, you’re totally my favorite. the end.



  • Nicole June 21, 2012 at 9:59 am

    Capricorn here! I just have to tell you, when you were helping Nicole (not me) with her question and were saying “Hi, Nicole!” I waved at my computer with a huge smile. Thank god there’s a partition between me and my officemate.


  • Heather June 21, 2012 at 10:06 am

    Ya’ll have caused Astrology Zone to crash! That is serious power. I’m a Taurus! Thanks for making Thursday mornings the shiz.


  • Megan June 21, 2012 at 11:20 am

    P.S. I’m a Capricorn!


  • Katherine June 21, 2012 at 11:36 am

    Aries what what!

    Ramming my way through life!


  • Betty June 21, 2012 at 11:42 am

    Another Virgo representin’! I do hope the typo in the sentence describing the typo was intentional. Hehehehe.


  • Christine June 21, 2012 at 12:06 pm

    Pisces, through and through. I’m also a Rabbit on the Chinese calendar, which is pretty much spot on as well.

    And, I’ve been reading Susan Miller for yeeeeeeears. My mom got me into it. It tends to be right a lot of times…except for anything related to relationships. It’s always saying I’ll meet someone, and I never do. Other than that, though, pretty spot on.

    ALSO, loved the call from the 17 year old. Exactly what I was trying to figure out when I was that age!



  • michael June 21, 2012 at 12:53 pm

    BTW. I totally didn’t yell. I’m not a yeller.


  • Hilary June 21, 2012 at 1:20 pm

    Virgo, what what!

    Also, the typo in the third paragraph made me giggle. You silly kids.


  • Kmarie June 21, 2012 at 1:59 pm

    LEO! Hi Tracy!
    This was my favorite podcast! I liked that you told us some inside info about the podcast (that Michael said the astrology bit was boring and you had to do it over). I hope one day, you guys let us hear some of your early practice podcasts that didn’t air :)
    I also loved hearing you both die laughing about Joy’s typo!


  • JenMarie June 21, 2012 at 2:03 pm

    Leo, too… Tracy, I fret about my haircuts, too…
    I have long been a believer of astrology signs giving cues to personality traits, but have never believed much on the horoscopes. However, I read June’s horoscope and there was a major one for me that was spot on the date…. I gasped. Outloud.


  • Amanda W. June 21, 2012 at 2:41 pm

    Joy and Tracy, you have totes converted me! Astrology zone is eerily, eerily spot on for my summer. I’m a cancer by the way…

    Oh, and Tracy, I was up starving everyday! I had to train myself to be able to function when I go out to breakfast. I used to have to eat something before I left the house for fear of having a melt down while waiting in line. I’m prevailed and can now wait…a little while at least!

    I appreciate YOU! You rock my socks off, ladies.


  • Winter June 21, 2012 at 3:31 pm

    I think Emmalou (sp?) and Dustin need to start writing or something!

    I’m a Pisces! My Astrology Zone was spot on–I can’t wait till the end of the month where it says I can go shopping for home stuff! That should be fun.

    By the way, I was doing the crossword puzzle today and the clue was “ear parts” for a 5 letter word. I thought the word was “balls” as in ear balls…because they ARE ear parts in my book!


  • Ciara June 21, 2012 at 5:23 pm

    I’m a virgo and was also going to write virgo what what?! until i saw like three other virgos had done the same……awkward sauce.


  • Karly W June 21, 2012 at 5:54 pm

    I’m a scorpio!


  • Sarah McG June 21, 2012 at 6:09 pm

    I’m a Capricorn but don’t know much about astrology- I do know that I love the podcast and it’s the highlight of my week!


  • Kim June 21, 2012 at 6:31 pm

    I’m a Libra!
    Also totes addicted to Astrology Zone now! The newsletter for June was dead on.
    Also also, yay Michael! I’d love future podcastios where you talk more about the behind the scenes goodness.


  • Josie June 21, 2012 at 6:38 pm

    I’m a capricorn, and my sister who listens with me is a Virgo :)


  • Josie June 21, 2012 at 6:42 pm

    Oh my god after writing the above comment I went and read my horoscope on the site and OH MY GOD YOU ARE RIGHT! IT IS SO SPOT ON!


  • Maggie @ A Bitchin' Kitchen June 21, 2012 at 7:16 pm

    Don’t be embarrassed! At least your typo resulted in a VERY funny story :)

    I’m an Aries , but I think I’m right on the verge of being the next sign…I’m April 18th. Although, aren’t Aries people supposed to have tempers? That unfortunately describes me…


    • Meg June 24, 2012 at 6:03 am

      Maggie –

      They’re called “Cusp” Birthday, and being an April 19th girl myself I’m also on the Aries/Taurus cusp…. I prefer to pick my more favorite of the two when presented with both. Though I’ve been told I’m more Taurus than Aries – I don’t know how I feel about that

      -Meg


  • Amanda Barkey June 21, 2012 at 7:26 pm

    bahahaha I totally read the shave your groove thang typo but it was late at night and I was too tired to even comment… I just laughed out loud to myself in my quiet house and went to bed… made my night :)


  • emily | nomnivorous June 21, 2012 at 8:09 pm

    I’m a Sagittarius on the cusp, so I have a touch of know-it-all Scorpio in me.

    Also, Astrology Zone? Yeah I just read the May forecast for Sags and had a smack-my-head moment. She totally called out something for me regarding business/partnerships. Yeah. I’ll be reading that regularly.




  • Freddi June 22, 2012 at 3:53 am

    Hey guys! I made Tracy’s Salmon cream cheese recently, and it was HEAVEN! I must of ate my stash of bagels in two days because of this stuff! Look here! http://thepalatablemisspreece.com/2012/05/08/smoked-salmon-cream-cheese/

    Still loving your podcasts, keep going :)

  • Lauren June 22, 2012 at 5:54 am

    Virgo! Love listening to you both.


  • Elisabeth June 22, 2012 at 6:01 am

    I’m a Virgo!
    And from Bonn, Germany so there’s another pin you can add to your imaginary map of world-wide-listeners! :-)
    Love the podcast, thanks for all the hard work you Ladies (and Gentleman of course) put into it!


  • latasha June 22, 2012 at 7:10 am

    leo here!! august 14th in fact :)


  • Kelly June 22, 2012 at 7:10 am

    Yay for astrology zone! That Susan Miller is SPOT on… I wonder what HER sign is?!
    I’m a Sagittarius myself, but you ladies seem to have a lot of ‘earth’ sign listeners… interesting! I loved all the astro talk, but I’m a little disappointed that the name of this episode is not ‘Shave Your Groove Thing’ Ha..
    Too funny!! Keep up the great work :) )

    PS.. when can we expect another episode of We’re About to Be Friends?


  • Dana June 22, 2012 at 7:40 am

    Not only am I one of only 2 cancers to respond to this post so far, but today (june 22) is my birthday! Thanks for starting my day off on a positive note :)



  • Jen Whitfield June 22, 2012 at 7:48 am

    Cancer. I don’t really buy into astrology but once-in-a-while things seem creepily spot on. Let’s hope Susan Miller is spot on with this statement “the course of your career will improve, thanks to Mars’ faster orbit” as I have two job interviews next week! Also, one time, at band camp (just kidding – it was a grown-up slumber party), I did our personology charts just for giggles. Mine said I should choose web design as my career path – I had been working in web design for about 5 years! I promptly walked away from that devil book.


  • Candice June 22, 2012 at 10:39 am

    August 17 birthday here! Tracy and I are almost birthday sisters. :) My parents are Geminis (BOTH of them so I often joke that I had four parents growing up) and my husband is a Scorpio… so I know aaaall about the personalities making up this podcast. Maybe that’s why I like it – it’s the same balance as my life. :)


    • Tracy June 22, 2012 at 12:50 pm

      oooh birthday neighbor! were you born in 79 too? That would be crazy. Also…I’m ready for July. June has been blah!


  • Candice June 22, 2012 at 10:41 am

    Oh, and Astrology Zone? LOVE IT. Right now I’m just counting the days until July 1 because she told me June was going to suck… and it is SO SUCKING.


  • JenMarie June 22, 2012 at 11:50 am

    You guys rock my world.


  • Kathryne June 22, 2012 at 11:57 am

    Capricorn! I generally think astrology is bs but Ms. Miller’s predictions for June were eerily correct… except for finding love, no luck on that front.


  • Emily D. June 22, 2012 at 12:06 pm

    I am a Pieces, and my personality generally fits, but horoscopes are usually waaaaaaay off.


  • Jesi June 22, 2012 at 12:38 pm

    Oh ladies! I have to fess up. I didn’t draw that moose on a bike– although I wish I could draw that well. It was actually one of a set of greeting cards I bought at Anthropologie forever ago. Embarrassing! I promise I’m not a plagiarist, at least not on purpose. But I’m glad you liked it!


  • Jesse June 22, 2012 at 12:45 pm

    Hi, I am an Aries.


  • Gaby June 22, 2012 at 1:13 pm

    I’m a Gemini and I’m listening from Saudi Arabia! I’m obsessed with Astrology Zone too. I print out my horoscope for the months and highlight all the important dates with multiple color highlighters…


  • Sandra June 22, 2012 at 1:18 pm

    My sign is Cancer (only just because my birthday is July 21st).
    It’s strange to see so few of this sign have replied, shy I guess….:)
    Love from Holland


  • louise June 22, 2012 at 1:56 pm

    Sagittarius! And I hate the word ‘moist’ too :)

    and I thought your typo was going to be ‘shake my gross thing’

    too funny!


  • kelly June 22, 2012 at 4:27 pm

    I’m a pisces and I’m married to a Gemini and our daughter is a Leo:)


  • maija June 22, 2012 at 4:32 pm

    I’m a Scorpio! It was so funny listening to you talk about Scorpios, as it felt like you were talking specifically about me. I am always driving people crazy because I am stubborn about things that I am right about. But the thing is – it’s true, I am always right! I won’t fight about it if I don’t strongly believe that I am.

    Susan Miller was pretty spot on for June so far. It was fun to read now that the month’s nearly over, so I could see what was accurate. Good timing on directing us to this!


  • Wendy June 22, 2012 at 4:44 pm

    Taurus! April 24… Am I really the only stubborn Bull here?


  • Marilyn June 22, 2012 at 6:00 pm

    Taurus, taurus, taurus!!!!!


  • Dede Bruington June 22, 2012 at 6:12 pm

    Pisces ftw! and by the way I am dying, crying, and rolling on the floor laughing about the WORST typo ever, sooooo funny Joy! Thanks for sharing and making it real :)


  • Caitlin M. June 22, 2012 at 6:34 pm

    Joy and Tracy! i was once super into astrology, and i’m less obsessed now but i remember all about it and proud to say i am a PISCES!! woot. which also means the astrology books will tell you i would have my feelings hurt by the teasey leo! i don’t believe everything i read though. love the podcast


  • Laura June 22, 2012 at 6:41 pm

    Aries!!! And I needed this pod cast- I don’t think I’ve laughed that hard in ages!!


  • Lea June 23, 2012 at 1:56 am

    OHHHHH MYYY GOD!
    I am freaked out. Astrology zone TOTALLY WORKS!
    I’m a Capricorn, by the way :)
    LOVE the podcast!


  • Kate @eatrecyclerepeat June 23, 2012 at 3:36 am

    I’m telling you, we need a “Ladies be Blazin’” t-shirt. Boom boom POW!


  • Katie June 23, 2012 at 7:54 am

    I’m a cancer, feeling proud to be in the minority up in here!


  • Laura June 23, 2012 at 5:35 pm

    I’m a capricorn! I love you guys (Joy, Tracy, Michael) and am so thankful for you! You make my morning runs so much more bearable… Thank you for that!


  • Sha June 24, 2012 at 3:01 am

    Whoa, lots of Capricorn listeners. I’m another one!

    I hope Elena makes Tracy’s Coconut Maple Granola. I make a new batch every other week. It’s the only kind I eat anymore. And Joy, thanks for reminding me of your Brown Sugar Bacon Biscuits. I made them today and…I love you. That’s all.


  • Mikel Posh June 24, 2012 at 7:34 am

    OMG… I love Astrology Zone… I’ve been translating the “cancer” newsletter into spanish every month for a friend for a year and a half…

    i’m also a cancer so i get to read mine while translating hers…

    anyway, loved today’s podcast and your ideas for Elena.. Suerte Elena con tu café en Venezuela!

    I´ll be doing my summer bucket list in my blog (so ill be tweeting the link) :P

    as always… you are TOTES MAJ!!!


  • Jenn June 24, 2012 at 9:37 am

    Leo!

    A funny thing happened when I was listening to this podcast… I was walking down a fairly empty street, and about a block away from me there was this couple standing on the corner making out. As I walked closer to them I was making fun of them a little in my head, because why stand right on the corner in a residential neighborhood and do this awkward makeout session… but anyhow, just as I got near them, Joy announced her amazing typo and I just BURST out laughing. Obviously the couple thought I was laughing at them and they kind of jumped apart, which made me laugh even harder as I scurried away.

    On a totally separate note: I’m so glad you answered Elena’s question, because I’ve been wanting to call in with a similar one – my sister is hosting my day-after-wedding brunch, but obviously no one has time to be baking that morning or the day before, so I was going to ask about what brunch items freeze well. So, perfect! Just one follow-up though – when you freeze banana bread or similar items, do you just defrost at room temp, or in the fridge?

    thanks, and keep up the great work!


  • Staci Magnolia June 24, 2012 at 10:23 am

    LEO!
    Tracy, I’m curious, what is Casey?
    ((I haven’t listened to the rest of the podcast yet so maybe you disclose that.))
    Joy, you know who else is a LEO? Your friend Jah from Uhh Yeah Dude!


  • Lindsey June 25, 2012 at 10:37 am

    You ladies are the best! I’ve shared you with so many people now, and I feel like it makes me even cooler to be the one to introduce people to your hilarious and awesome podcast and blogs. I’m a Capricorn, and while listening today, I checked my astrologyzone.com forecast and have to say that she was SPOT ON about June! Amazing. Can’t wait for next week’s podcast, and can’t wait to read Susan Miller’s July predictions for goats like myself!
    Thanks so much!
    Lindsey


  • Barbara June 25, 2012 at 11:12 am

    Hi, you guys! I’m an Aquarius! Thanks for cluing me in about Astrology Zone! I LOVE it! It was a good time for me to get into it because apparently I’m entering a very good period regarding love. I hope it pans out the way she says it could. I have been talking to someone new recently, so…we’ll see :)

    This is totally another topic from a while back, but my siren song is that when I’m waiting for the train here in Boston I am SOOO tempted to throw my book and/or ipod (whichever is in my hand at that moment) down into the train tracks!! I actually back up a little bit and hold on to them tighter when this feeling takes over! It’s like the listener who said that she holds on to her keys tight because she is tempted to throw them into the water when she’s on the ferry! That whole topic cracked me up! I love you guys…so much!!!


  • Christina June 25, 2012 at 11:25 am

    I’m a Capricorn, and I share a birthday with Ricky Martin! Dude the description of the Gemini is totes my sister! She’s four days younger than Joy. Every time I see her she’s trying a new skin care line. Cray cray.


  • JamieK June 25, 2012 at 12:31 pm

    Scorpio and I share a birthday with Vivien Leigh.


  • erica June 25, 2012 at 12:43 pm

  • Amy S. June 25, 2012 at 12:58 pm

    I am literally wiping happy tears from my eyes about the typo and Cooper’s mis-speak! I need these laughs on a blah-Monday. Thanks girlies!

    P.S.-I’m a virgo…


  • Lexi June 25, 2012 at 4:32 pm

    LEO! High 5 to Tracy!! August 16.
    Much love from Corning, NY


  • Caitlin June 25, 2012 at 7:14 pm

    Tracy, my birthday is August 18 too!! I would always hear you talk about being a Leo born in August and I always wondered! I used to fight my interest in astrology, but I’m going to have to check out this Astrology Zone…


  • Tess Krovetz June 26, 2012 at 5:08 am

    I’m a Sagittarius (obsessed with Astrology Zone. apparently my month of stress ends tomorrow, which is kind of great). As to epic embarrassing typos, when i was in high school and had to get tech help from our computer teacher, i emailed my mother the following INSANELY INAPPROPRIATE typo: “it’s fine, mom, he suck a disk in the computer”. mom said she cried laughing. i, meanwhile, crawled under a desk and died. i think hideous typo moments are a rite of passage at this point.



  • Kelsey June 26, 2012 at 12:22 pm

    Leo! August 13.


  • Darlene June 26, 2012 at 1:34 pm

    Libra here, but I’m on the cusp so I always read Scorpio too.


  • April Mae June 26, 2012 at 2:18 pm

    Dear Joy & Tracy, (Possible name combo, Troy?–eww nevermind.)

    I am seeing stars after checking out Astrology Zone. Here’s why, I feel like Susan Miller gently caressed my cheek while she told me, “You have an extraordinary chart, with layer upon layer of signals that from now on, life is about to become joyous and softer, and far more romantic than anything you’ve experienced over past years.” I thought, “AWESOME!! It’s prolly ’cause my lover boy and I are tying the knot on July 21st!” However, then I went to the Love and Life section of the Astrology Zone website and Susan punched me in the face. She socked it to me when she told me Aquarius and Taurus are, “…not an easy match, unless you have some extra earth signs in your horoscope to compensate. Both Taurus and Aquarius are fixed signs, a tough combination because neither of you is likely to budge from your position. Pure stubbornness could kill your union.” Sweet–thanks Sue! I guess all we can do is pray we’re extra earthy–whatever that means…maybe a good roll in the dirt will do the trick?!

    Aside from Susie’s 1/2 great 1/2 awful news, I thought I might suggest some new words. I know you two like to speak in clippings–ya know “Toats Maje,” “Cra-Cra,” Et cetrea… The words, I am about to suggest are not clippings, but are quite fun. Number one, “Hamajang,” this is an old school, Hawaiian word which means, messed up. For example, “Shaving your groove thing at some else’s house is hammajang!” Number two, I made up–it’s “Shmarmadon”. A shmarmadon is a creeper-dude on the beach, on the dance floor, Et cetrea… Number three, now my man
    came up with this one and I LOVE it, “Prehistoric Mellows,” which takes the adjective, “mellow” and turns it into a noun. Prehistoric mellows are the really old leathery people who live on the beach or have become ex-pats and now live in Baja or Costa Rica. I can actually picture a prehistoric mellow wearing a neon green Boom-Boom shirt.

    Hi Joy & Tracy! Love listening to your show and cackling away to myself as I walk around Dublin. This morning I was heading down the street when a little old man passed me by on the pavement carefully balancing two HUGE trays of eggs in his arms; there must have been around 50 eggs there … the sirens were doing opera.

    Boom boom pow.

    Leo here! My birthday is July 26th — same as Sandra Bullock and Kevin Spacey.

    OMG bodysuits & flannels?! My high school wardrobe! What about the half cowboy boots & glitter belts?? And now thank you for getting me hooked on Astrology Zone, I just read my June Virgo horoscope and it was creepily accurate. Joy, I love that the Moose is your power animal. I’m going to send you some of my favorite Moose photos from Idaho/Montana.

    I’m totes a Virgo which I used to fight but now totally heart. I have to say Astrology Zone is good but I like to kick it old school as well – Linda Goodman’s love signs was required reading for me and my BFF in college. Thanks for keeping me company while I do boring work stuff – you guys are awesometastic!


  • dayna @kaleidoscopebrain June 27, 2012 at 9:22 pm

    HOLLA Tracy! Leo, too!
    I totally get your clean-freak-ness, and I defs am crazy picky about my hair and my haircuts. Sadly, I just moved away from a fabulous hairdresser that I just found, and now imma have to find a new one all over again.. ahhh! AND I have super short hair, so it really matters! (No baseball caps or ponytails for me, if she decides she’s going to punish me cause I’m super pretty….. )


    • Tracy June 28, 2012 at 11:43 am

      It seems like whenever I find a good stylist, something happens! I move…they move salons…SUCKS. Still looking for a good one. Sigh…

    Capricorn! Actually I’m a Sag/Cap cusp – what does that mean, Cap with a touch of Sag? I’m December 22. I love Astrology Zone, thanks for turning me on to it. I was so excited to check the forecast for July. Yay! Love you ladies.


  • Kalena Boller July 3, 2012 at 7:05 am

    So, Joy, how about this for a snack of interesting?

    I was born on May 25th, which makes you and I not only Gemini but Birthday Sisters as well! I find it so amazing! Not only that, but my sister, Lauren, is a Leo like Tracey. She ALSO is obsessed with astrology. She is my best friend. She makes me laugh. She’s totally corny but super smart. According to her, Leo and Gemini are a match made in the stars.

    So I was slowly getting into this subject with her when I came across this episode. Astrology zone was so accurate it was scary. She even flipped out because she JUST got pregnant! I was so hooked that I checked the sight every hour on July 1st and 2nd until it was back up with the new forecasts. Three days in and it hasn’t missed a beat. I smell a new favorite pastime.

    LOVE your show, you two! Keep it up!



  • Danielle July 6, 2012 at 10:20 pm

    I’m a Scorpio! Hard core. All the way.

    Love you guys!


  • Stef July 8, 2012 at 4:44 pm

  • Angela July 13, 2012 at 3:29 pm

    I’ve been reading Astrology zone for at least 3 years now!!! I cannot believe I have found others as obsessed with it as I am. It’s always right (ok 90% of the time) haha. Glad to see Im not alone. I’m a taurus to the tee!
    Susan Miller rocks…she has such a pleasant and kind tone to her writing. Feels like home. I swear it’s like therapy to read. I always get excited at the start of a new month…


  • Cortnie Cleary Enns July 17, 2012 at 11:42 am

    Hi, I’m Cortnie and I’m a Cancer. I think you girls have got me hooked on Astrology Zone!!

    Tracy, I could eat from the moment I get up until I go to bed. This includes espresso.

    Joy, I was laugh/crying about the ‘shave my groove thing’. Don’t be mad.

    Love you girls!!

    First of all, Joy, I am also a Gemini. Jekyll and Hyde persona? That is me. Nickname: Moody McGee. Whateves. It’s totes cool. Question for Tracy: I JUST moved into a new space, a four bedroom duplex. W00t w00t! My question is: how do you effectively organize a closet, the length of a wall? I’m now a spoiled lady and I need a bit of help! Thanks ladies. ;-)

    Hey ladies, Late response here. I’m listening to all the podcasts in reverse order since I just discovered this amazing treasure a few weeks ago. I was listening to this one today and was tickled when I heard Joy’s birthday is May 25, May 26th-er here. Yay Gemini unite. I am also INFJ as well so we might as well be twinsies. Hot Bod, can you guys never stop saying that. I love it.
