'Tis the season, ladies! The leaves are falling and temperatures are dropping, which can only mean it is time to get in tune with our best autumn and third quarter selves. And listen, for some of us, we have no clue where to start. Are we in Mercury retrograde? Am I an earth sign? Wait, how do I know if I am compatible with my partner?
Well, just in time for the shift, Tarot reader, Dani Simone joined Amer and Sheriden for this week's episode of the xoNecole's Happy Hour Podcast to get all of our vibrations in check! Also known as The Mystic Model, Dani's resume extends way beyond your local newspaper clipping. She also serves as the resident horoscope writer for xoNecole, and as Amer says, "Sis, don't miss!" So, grab your crystals and conjure up your best manifestation, spirituality, and zodiac questions. We're tapping into our higher selves today.
(Oh, and there may even be a live tarot reading for Sheriden and Amer too!)
xoNecole's Happy Hour Podcast Season 2, Episode 5 Show Notes:
Have you ever invested on a luxury bag or purse? -- Telfar bags, black-owned luxury bags. People have been buying them and marking them up like 200%. So, they offered pre-orders to prevent mark-ups and were criticized for the process. Either way, it's important to support these brands.
OnlyFans or nah? -- Sheriden: too much porn is already free; hates faux-enticement. Amer: it's exploitative for celebrities to join, was originally for sex workers who want more access to more coins.
Various porn categories, and how black women are disrespected...even in porn
OnlyFans buyer's remorse?
White people showing up to hate on black women's bags. Again.
Zodiacs And Horoscopes
"Your Partner's Love Language, According To Their Zodiac Sign": an xoNecole article written by Dani that explores different signs, planets to consider when it comes to compatibility, your moon, communication, and more. Expresses the importance of knowing sun energy in relationships and how deep it can go, as well as other signs you should consider in dating. Also, understanding how our energies interact with others.
Our experiences and connection with the spiritual world -- Sheriden: connection to God, the universe, and their energy is usually through sex and orgasm. Amer's connection: has an uncle that was a healer. Often dreamed of future, which caused her to get into zodiac signs. Was introduced to tarot cards. Has practiced or studied astrology ever since.
Zodiac Terms Defined
What does sexuality mean to you?
"Sexuality is energy and intention that you bring to the fact that you are a sexual being. That can never be separated from you, even if you're not in the act of sex. And when I'm in full alignment with that energy, I feel like I tap into a state of being that feels spiritual. There's a reason why in the throws of passion we say, 'God.' We come face-to-face with our highest selves." — Ev'yan Whitney
"What's your sun, moon, and rising signs?"

Birth charts: snapshot of the cosmos at the time you were born. You need to know the exact time for accurate chart.
Synastry: comparing your birth chart to someone
Mercury retrograde: the planet is back-tracking, you revisit energies, themes, situations, relationships. That's why your ex is popping up, sis! Considered negative because of frequency (half of the year), but it's more inconvenient than negative.
Sex magic: visualizing what you want to manifest during orgasm. Get into it!
