NEW YORK MAGAZINE – Deb McBride SCHOLARLY READING
April 21, 2003 Cover Story “Psychic New York”
DEB MCBRIDE, WITH HER ROSY CHEEKS, friendly smile, and chintz-filled Park Slope walk-up, is probably the coziest astrologer in town. But she’s also one of the most academic: She’s the author of some of the practice’s more scholarly articles, and treats her craft like a true science. ‘There are certain things in an astrological chart that we carry with us our whole lives; she says, “and I know when they’re going to get pinpointed time-wise based on what the planets are doing.’
PHILOSOPHY; “You tell me what’s going on, I tell you what’s going on, and then we try to meet in the middle and figure it all out. I just like people to know that if they feel like they’re going through the juicer, they’re not crazy. There are bigger forces at work here.’
WHAT TO EXPECT: While McBride is a very by-the-books astrologer-not only does she spend a good deal of time with your chart before you arrive, but she frequently studies other charts during the reading in an attempt to identify patterns in your life – she recently completed a three-year course in counseling. It’s almost like talking with your favorite R.A. from your college dorm: gentle and wise.
