Friends On A Rotten Day is an astrological guide to understanding your BFF's.
Lovers come and go, spouses and partners never seem to understand, and sooner or later, the kids grow up and leave home. But our girlfriends sustain, nurture, and protect us from the cradle to the grave. FRIENDS ON A ROTTEN DAY is the first astrology book to focus entirely on these woman-to-woman relationships. The book explores these supportive, sometimes complex and, often, uproarious relationships through an in-depth astrological analysis of each Sun sign.
Discover why a Gemini buddy changes her mind so often, why the Virgo gal pal sweats the small stuff, and why a Scorpio girlfriend sometimes seems distant. It reveals the reason a Leo chum needs frequent head-pats, a Pisces pal should never be forced to make a snap decision, and a Capricorn girlfriend might seem too serious for her own good. FRIENDS ON A ROTTEN DAY uncovers the truth about a Taurus friend’s hidden anxieties, an Aries chum’s competitive side, and what causes Cancer pal’s emotional train wrecks. It explains an Aquarius buddy’s rebellious side and a Sagittarius girlfriend’s occasional angry outburst.
FRIENDS also gives the inside scoop on phony friends, including a sign-by-sign description of backstabbing behaviors. Plus a guide to the guy-pals in your life.
From grade school to menopause and beyond, female friendship is the one, dependable relationship upon which women from every walk of life can count. Told in the author’s girlfriendly style that’s straightforward and humorous, Friends On A Rotten Day provides insights on how to perfect, protect, and preserve these priceless relationships.
When real people fall down, they get right back up and keep walking.
Sarah Jessica Parker (March 25)
She’s the first sign of the zodiac and has been called everything from ballsy to bitchy. Her jets are always on high, and she is happiest when she’s leading a cause, the gang, or first in line waiting for tickets at the box office. She’s also going to be the first girlfriend to rush to your side for a wild night of fun or to hug you and hand you a tissue when you’re having a rotten day, as long as she feels that she’s the number one friend in your life.
I can spend hours in a grocery store…arranging my baskets so everything fits in and nothing gets squashed. I’m really anal about it, actually.
Cameron Diaz (August 30)
Remember watching ants when you were a kid? Those perpetually busy little creatures were always carrying ten times their weight and never stopped to rest. Your Virgo girlfriend is like that; she always has a lengthy to-do list and is rarely without her daily planner. Yes, she strives to always do her best. No, she is absolutely not the humorless nitpicker that some astrology books portray her. Winning her casual friendship is easy as she is a social creature. But if you think getting elevated to her BFF status takes two things—never be late and always be tidy—you’re wrong. Common astrology is full of misconceptions about your Virgo friend.
Normal is in the eye of the beholder.
Whoopi Goldberg (November 13)
Despite the sometimes scary astrological descriptions of Scorpio, this girlfriend is not a control-freak who’s hell bent on revenge over every real or imagined slight. Neither is she a sexual sorceress trampling over the worn out bodies of her lovers. She has powerful emotions that she doesn’t give lightly either in love or friendship. Your Scorpio pal keeps her own council. So how do you win her friendship? By winning her trust and that takes time.
I bear no grudges. I have a mind that retains nothing.
Bette Midler (December 1)
I’ve mentioned that no Fire sign is known for its sensitivity. Well, Ms. Sagittarius can sometimes be the most insensitive but well meaning lady of the zodiac. Don’t misunderstand. As a rule, this girlfriend doesn’t have a mean bone in her body. She’s neither spiteful nor vengeful. She is kind, affectionate, and never knows a stranger. It’s her fondness for shooting verbal arrows without considering the consequences that has earned her the Universe’s rep of having terminal hoof-in-mouth disease.
