The Occult #9: Mixology


Okay, it wasn't exactly satanism, but astrology was all the rage in the seventies and late sixties. It may have annoyed logically minded folks like Carl Sagan (who was known to rail against astrology on occasion), but the "in crowd" was all over the zodiac.  "What's your sign?" has become a cliched joke; it's hard to believe it was once a legitimate pick up line.



That being said, I was still surprised to find this booklet sponsored by Southern Comfort on mixed drink preparation - all revolving around astrology and other occult beliefs.  Amazing!

  1. The girl on the cover looks somewhat like Cathy Lee Crosby, but the blonde woman in the second pic, looking straight into the camera, has to be Deidre Hall, aka Electra Woman and Marlena from Days of Our Lives!

  2. So...you find the thought of using the stars to mix spisits a tad baffling, do you?;-)
