Cosmic Coupling is a fun, fast-paced exploration of every possible relationship between star signs, both straight and gay, from the authors’ unique sextrological perspective. With rich knowledge, expert wordsmithing, and signature wry humor, celebrity cosmic consultants Stella Starsky + Quinn Cox delve into the specific rules of attraction inherent in each bond and the perks and pitfalls particular to each partnership.

Smart, sexy, and sophisticated, with a wink, Cosmic Coupling profiles couples in a threefold manner: • Chemistry—describes the sparks, clashes, and underlying motivations of the couple’s mutual attraction • Compatibility—depicts the relationship needs of each sign and explains how the pair best meshes • Carnality—details the sexual dynamics of the bond, right on down to the nitty-gritty With a profound understanding of astrology and human psychology, original insights drawn from ancient, literary, and pop archetypes, and a frankly intelligent, frequently funny delivery, Cosmic Coupling illuminates the dynamics of one’s (and others’) existing relationships and guides any singles seeking Mr. and/or Ms. Right, while giving the phrase “starry-eyed lovers” a whole, spicy new meaning.

"The present work is based upon lectures given at Harvard University in the autumn of 1869 and spring of 1871. At the outset these lectures were designed to include only a criticism of the Positive Philosophy, or Positivism, but I have enlarged the course to make it include a somewhat complete outline-sketch of the new philosophy based on the Doctrine of Evolution. The extravagant claim of Positivism to stand for the whole of attainable scientific philosophy is, I trust, finally disposed of of when it is shown that a system of philosophy has been constructed, out of purely scientific materials and by the employment of scientific methods, which opposes a direct negative to every one of the theorems of which Positivism is made up.; I call this system Cosmic Philosophy"--Preface.
