About the Author

Linda Moonrabbit Zlotnick began studying astrology in 1973. After formal training with Zipporah Dobyns in 1977, she began full-time practice as a professional astrologer. In 2005 she began her study of astrological death charts, which she went on to use in her work with clients. A longtime lesbian feminist, she identifies as a spiritual seeker, a Jew, a motherless daughter, and a twinless twin. She and her wife have two grown children and live in St. Paul.


"Zlotnick's memoir is an astrological mystery, an anatomy of grief, and a thoughtful exploration of the complicated individuation that twins must navigate. But most of all it's a story about making sense of loss and of how two wounded healers learn to transform their own pain to help others. By looking deeply at death, this moving memoir unlocks what life has to teach us."
--Alison Bechdel, author of Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic

"Star Sisters is a moving expression of the deep bonds, intertwined identities, and magical connection that twins experience in life, and an honest narrative of the unique loss when one twin dies."
--Gayle Sherman Crandell, MA, LPCC, grief therapist and co-founder of Crocus Hill Counseling Center, St. Paul, MN

"An excellent book about dealing with the loss of a loved one. Linda Zlotnick fits astrology into the narrative in a way that is easy for the lay person to understand and shows how astrology can have an important role in health and healing."
--Arlan Wise, former president and current vice president of the Organization for Professional Astrology

"An intricate and nuanced portrait of twin living and losing. Twin loss is an under-researched and under-resourced topic. When I lost my own twin, Bob, at the age of thirty-one to HIV, Linda's book would have been just what I needed at the time to understand the complexity of my grief and to know I was not alone."
--Beth Zemsky, MAEd, LICSW, intercultural organizational development consultant and (always) Bob's twin
