Star Crossed - Minnie Darke

I am loving this story taking place in Australia. We are following Justine (a Sagittarius) and Nick (Aquarius) along with other people/couples who apparently are star-crossed as well. It does feel a little shameless that Justine is using her magazine's horoscopes to nudge Nick into asking her out instead of her just telling him, hi, I like you. Seems overly complicated. 

 

As someone who is an Aquarius, but born on a cusp, I tend to have some Aquarius traits (absent minded professor, full of hope/change) so it's pretty funny for me to read about how Aquarius people are just too full of dreams and artistry and need to be brought down to Earth at times.
