Do you gravitate towards certain signs as friends/collaborators/partners?
I noticed in my circle there are a lot of Aquarius, Virgos, & Sags.
What’s a typical morning look like for you? How does astrology play into that?
I am an earth sign so I’m very grounded but also love to have a schedule. Usually I wake up at 6:40 AM for my workout at 7:00 AM with @balicabrera (everyone should follow her). After I usually pick up the apartment so I can have a fresh space to work since I am working from home, make my breakfast, and go about my work day. I am usually done with everything around 6:00 PM and make sure all computers & phones are off. This is very important to me since social media/work can get overwhelming.
How, if at all, does astrology impact your daily life? Do you read your horoscope?
I love @thehoodhealer & Co-Star app. It helps me with my mind and life.
What does the work day look like for you? Does your zodiac sign help you out?
I must have a to-do list, and as a Capricorn, I tend to write too many things, so I keep it about 3-4 things per day.

How do you unwind/decompress at the end of the day?
Disconnecting from social media, spending the rest of the day talking to my partner.
Are you watching/have you recently watched anything you’d recommend?
My friend put me on to this show call Prodigal Son. It's sort of a crime film vibe but it's more psychological. It's about a father and son – the father is a serial killer and the son works for NYPD as profiler expert, specifically with killers, but he constantly turns to his father for help. It's really good.
What’s your favorite thing to do on the weekends?
It all depends since I work from home. I wish I could just relax every weekend but my schedule changes pretty often. Sometimes I work on content on weekends.
Any given day is incomplete without…?
