Bess Matassa is a New York-based astrologer and writer. After completing a doctorate in urban geography, she went rogue and co-founded Mojave Rising, an astro biz that offers everything from birth chart walking tours to zodiac wine tasting parties. When she's not busy wandering star-studded landscapes, Bess finds magic in pop music, pink lipstick, and the wild prints of Lisa Frank. Read more about her sensuous approach to astrology on our blog, and check our workshop calendar for her monthly astrological celebrations where you can explore the current cosmic climate through sound, scent, flavor, and more.
