How did the AstroTwins learn astrology?

We always loved reading our horoscopes as kids. In fact, we had a paper route as tweens and before we distributed The Detroit News to our neighbors, we’d pause to check our Sagittarius ‘scope and to read Dear Abby (who was twins with fellow advice columnist Anne Landers, featured in The Detroit Free Press). Can you say foreshadowing?

When were students at The University of Michigan, a friend gifted us a birth chart, which mapped out the placement of all the planets at our times of birth. (December 2, for the record, Tali at 10:00 and Ophi at 10:04AM.) We were fascinated—and a little bit shocked—at its accuracy. How did this 20-page booklet read us so well? We were obsessed! Which was explained in the chart by our moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars in Scorpio, incidentally. We couldn’t stop devouring books and began doing charts for all of our friends. Then, one fateful day, a friend offered us a chance to write our first column for Teen People magazine, and the rest is cosmic history.
