Hi there. I'm Aliza.
I'm a New York City-based practicing astrologer, host, and author.
As the resident astrologer of Cosmopolitan Magazine, my work appears in digital, print, and video. In addition to my monthly digital horoscopes, my cosmic advice column — Ask Astrolobestie — is published each month in Cosmopolitan’s print magazine. I also have contributed to numerous publications including Allure, Girlboss, BuzzFeed, Cheddar, Sanctuary, among many others.
Oh, I’ve also written two books: The Mixology of Astrology: Cosmic Cocktails for Every Sign (Adams Media/Simon & Schuster) and Starring You: A Guided Journey Through Astrology (Little Bee).
I spend my days studying space and mythology, researching the history of esotericism, and leading dynamic workshops and events. In my private practice, I have read birth charts for hundreds of individuals, including celebrities and public figures (~fancy~).
Within each person is a complex cosmology — a symbolic bond between the universe and existence. We alone have the power to manifest meaningful transformation. Astrology provides an ancient vocabulary that helps us understand our incredible superpowers, as well as our frustrating blindspots. I vehemently believe in demystifying the mystical: I practice an astrology that is accessible, applicable, and fun.
Before I began my journey into the stars, I was an art gallery owner and technology co-founder. I graduated from Carleton College, where I received a joint bachelor's degree in Art History and Studio Art. Oh, and by the way, my name is pronounced uh-LEE-zuh. It's like Ibiza.
