Beloved Starman on the Road to Recovery

Drew Chittenden is our beloved Starman, reading and mapping the stars for us every issue, telling us what is up up there. This month he is taking a break, recovering from a car accident, but will be up and writing (if not running) soon. I for one can’t wait to here about his adventures in induced comas, his brush with death, and his amazing recovery!

For those of you who don’t know, Drew was in a car accident early this Fall in which he suffered massive trauma to his legs, and ripped his aorta. He underwent several surgeries, and each step of the way doctors were amazed that he was still alive. We gathered together, we circled, we sent him our love and energy, and he decided to stay with us!

As is typical of Drew, his attitude is amazing, and he is recovering faster than any of his doctors predicted. He will soon be undergoing intense physical therapy on his leg, though being the yogi he is, he’ll probably be in sun pose before
Valentine’s Day.

Everywhere I go, people comment on his astrology column. They love the way he teaches and informs in a fun, informal, and interesting way. People tell me they love his work even though they never read astrology columns in other papers, or have ever been able to understand it before. I’ve always likened him to an astrological weatherman: whenever I tell him anything that is going on in my life, he calmly tells me that, “well, you know that Jupiter is in transit right now,” in the same tone someone might say, “well, it looks like rain on Thursday.”

While I know that many of you would love to contact Drew, please respect his recovery process and refrain until he puts himself back in the game.

Much thanks to you Drew, for sticking around, for shining bright, for having the time to write that book you’ve always wanted to write now, and for all that you have left to teach!
