Dating While Gray, WUNC

Laura’s a Scorpio, and she reads her horoscope every morning for fun. But is there more to astrology than sun signs, and can it help us make romantic connections? | Support this show with a donation to Share your gray dating stories and questions with Laura at

In this episode, Laura talks with Koku, who looks to the zodiac as a “quiet consultant” in her life. Then Laura sits down with astrologer Leslie McGuirk. Leslie says sun signs and daily horoscopes can be entertaining, but there’s a lot more to it than that. After, Laura meets with a self-taught chart reader to learn what might be in the stars for her romantic future. Mr. G, Mr. T or Mr. W – whose planets are best aligned with Laura’s?

Astrologer Leslie McGuirk is an illustrator and best-selling children’s book author. She also wrote “The Power of Mercury: Understanding Mercury Retrograde and Unlocking the Astrological Secrets of Communication.”
