You’re a Capricorn Sun, Taurus Moon with a Libra Ascendant, – which of your signs do you credit to your aesthetics?
100% Libra rising with a touch of Taurus Moon. I always think it’s funny how Libra I come off and appear to be.

What was your first introduction to Astrology?
My first introduction was probably on a key ring in a random gift shop, but when I really started looking into astrology was maybe in 2012 and when I really took it seriously was in 2015.

Do you have a favourite astrologer or app that you like to use?
I use TimePassages App and my favourite astrologers on YouTube are Jewel (Truth In Aspect) and Yasmin Boland because she is so clear.

How do you think the perception of astrology is changing? Where do you see it going next?
To be honest I see it becoming a very big thing soon, being in the Information Age I think people are beginning to take this subject seriously. I think there will be many businesses involved in astrology.

AQUARIUS SEASON ♒️ Approx: 20/01- 19/02 Element: Air Quality: Fixed The sign of freedom, expression and ideas. I’m ready to be cooky and let live again. So let’s lighten up now and free up the ting. It’s that Aquarius Season coming through. As the ruler of Uranus, Aquas don’t have a box, they despise boxes, it’s all about freedom and expressing that weird strange alien creature that lives within, don’t put baby in a box cuz she’s not having it. Stay true to your individuality. And in my opinion that’s one of the most beautiful things you can be. It’s also the times we are in (Age of Aquarius), as you can see, anything goes, walls are breaking down and people are finding their paths and speaking their truths. This sign is about the community and the people and they will be the people to come up with amazing ideas and will encourage you to shoot for the stars. Be your true individual selves and live your best life! Now is the time! Where you’ve got Aquarius in your chart, you’re probably quirky and don’t like people trying to tell you how to be or what to do. Think: Individuality, freedom, Quirkiness. If your sun sign is Aquarius but you don't resonate with a lot of Aquarius traits maybe it's because your moon sign is an opposing or more dominating sign. Find out your moon sign by going online and typing in moon sign calculator (you'll need to know your time of birth). @astrologystuff wearing Aquarius, she has one the best astro instas! . . . . . . #aries #taurus #gemini #cancer #leo #virgo #libra #scorpio #sagittarius #capricorn #aquarius #pisces #witch #astrology #zodiac #woc #starsign #wicca #aquariusseason #lunareclipse #eclipse #fullmoon #leofullmoon #supermoon #redmooncycle #bloodmoon
