A Guide to Astrology for Lesbians

Hey, Sister, What's Your Sign?
Has your girlfriend (or ex-girlfriend) ever told you to stop being such a sloppy Sagittarius? Have you ever wanted to crack the shell of the cute but quiet Cancer shelving books in your local bookshop? Do you read the monthly horoscope columns in your favorite lesbian magazine and wonder what it all means? Well...attention all women who wear comfortable shoes, lipstick lesbians, and drag kings! Listen up, fems, butches, pillow queens, and all women who refuse to be labeled! HerScopes is the key to unlocking the mysteries of the stars, full of insight and enlightenment about every aspect of your life.
Speaking as one girlfriend to another, Charlene Lichtenstein, one of the foremost astrologers in the gay and lesbian press, offers a comprehensive guide to the zodiac that is infused with wit, wisdom, and a nod to all that makes lesbian life unique.
HerScopes offers a detailed description of the characteristics of women born under every sign, and a revealing glimpse into sign-by-sign compatibilty -- in love, in friendship, and in work. Complete with a list of famous gals (and some guys) who might share your birthday and irresistible profiles of some of your favorite stars and icons, HerScopes is a welcome resource for all the strong, smart, and courageous women striving to understand their place in the universe.
