Our online magazine is going to print!

Are you an astrologer and want to share your expertise? Do you have a new slant on the same old planetary revolutions? Got some fiction or poetry that fits with a particular sign? How about some non-fiction about your favorite head-banging Aries or socket-shocked Aquarius? What’s it like to have your moon in Pisces in the 4th or a Grand Trine? Or have a fabulous new band, artist, DIY superstar or author you think the world should know about? Please write us with your article ideas and we’ll get back to you in about the time it takes the moon to go from one sign to the next. And don’t forget to send us your art, photographs and astrologically-relevant quotes you might stumble upon. If you want to receive our call for submissions update, please write and we’ll put you on our email list.

THE BIG PICTURE:
Please email all articles or ideas to
submissions@constellationmag.com.
Please include the following information in your submission:

Full Name:
Email Address:
Mailing Address:
Day and Night Phone Number:

Please email your submission as an attachment in addition to a copy pasted in the body of the email. If we’re interested in running your piece, we’ll get back to you. If we aren’t, we’ll do our best to let you know but it might take a long time and we can’t promise that we’ll be able to. Please don’t take it personally: we just have a very busy, very small staff.
If you are submitting an article idea rather than an article, please also send us clips of your previous writing.

THE DETAILS:
Does your star-studded idea fall into one of these categories? If so, please specify the section when submitting:

Connecting the Dots
Do you know an up-and-coming artist, musician, metaphysical rockstar, performer or just a cool person who you think we should feature in an upcoming issue? Write us with an idea and we'll let you know if it fits.

Moon Landing
Besides the traditional look at what it means to have the sun in a particular sign, we’d like to feature articles about the placement of the moon or ascendant in that sign. Got an Aquarius moon? Cancer rising? Just want to write about them? What about Venus or Mars in those signs or the Moon’s Nodes? We need more technical astrology articles. But just remember, we are not your grandma’s astrology magazine! Submissions should be no longer than 1000 words.

Astro-fashionista
We want to know your recommendations for health, beauty and style by the sign. What scents, seams and latest looks would a Gemini die to have two of? If you’d like to cover a designer or have style suggestions for our upcoming fashion shoots; or if you are a hair/makeup artist, stylist or model who would like to work with us, we want to hear from you!

Features
Each issue features the sign that the sun is in for that month. We always have a particular lesson, theme or keyword for that issue. If you’re signed up for our submission updates, we’ll send you the theme. This decision is usually just before our editorial deadline, so you’ll have to be able to pump out those flashes of brilliance. We are always open to reading feature submissions that don’t necessarily fit with our guidelines; the only thing we ask is that it’s relevant. Also we love articles sent in advance (like sending us an article for a Scorpio issue while the sun is in Leo). Also note that feature articles should be no longer than 2500 words.

Reviews by Sign
We want up-to-the-minute reviews of movies, music, and books that fit the theme of the featured sign. Either the author, musician, actor or director has their sun in that sign or the theme is clearly aligned with the stars. Please read our old issues to get a sense of our review style. Submissions should be 250-350 words.

Stars in your Alphabet Soup
We want your fiction, non-fiction,erotica, and poetry inspired by the energy of a particular sign. Write about your Leo ex-flame, your scattered Gemini aunt, or what happened when Mars went retrograde. Remember, irreverent or serious, intriguing or Mercurially-talented, we want to see it all. Fiction and non-fiction should be less than 2500 words. Poetry should be no longer than two pages double-spaced.

Artwork
Artwork (including photographs) should be sent in jpeg format, preferably compatible with Photoshop, Illustrator or Quark XPress. Please submit full-page resolution: 300 dpi, measuring 8.5 x 11 This includes bleed.

Copyright
If we decide to run your article, you’ll receive a copyright release form which you should sign and return to us promptly. If you have any questions about the form or about reprint rights, please direct all questions to
editors@constellationmag.com. Although the specific terms of the release can be altered by circumstance, we must have a signed copyright release on file before we can publish your article online. Also please know that we usually allow authors to maintain reprint rights and that can be stipulated in the agreement.

Thanks for reading Constellation and we look forward to reading your submissions!
