I’m a writer, artist, and troublemaking socialite who spends her days professionally wandering about the universe and its many wonders, oversharing my ongoing inner monologues, and not being afraid to climb out on the ledge first.
My favourite beverage is entitled white male tears on the rocks with a chaser of fat babe in a crop top. I'm a Scorpio Sun, Leo Moon, Leo Rising, with an Aries Midheaven and a no-joke Capricorn North Node. My Internet Certified Archnemesis™ is Gary Vaynerchuk. I’m a sucker for anything salted caramel and an enthused evangelist for Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams. I’m a queer, disabled Black + Indigenous femme. And last but not least, I am also the proud daughter of a Pushcart Prize-nominated poet and the grandchild of a Black Panther and internationally respected artist. My family is dope as fuck.
Devoted to Truth, Justice, and Liberation, I live in the spirit of my foremothers: Unbossed. Unbought. Unbothered.
Current Residence: The Windy City (Chicago, Illinois, USA)
The symbolism is many levels thick and well thought out, not just provocateuring for provocateuring’s sake (although that’s fun, and sometimes I do that!)
Here’s a run-down:
I have a stellium in Scorpio (ruler of the 8th house, which is the domain of transformation, healing, sex, finances, death, the occult, power, etc., all the shit), sitting in my 4th house, which is your family and your roots. I am literally rooted in death, sex, and taxes.
I was also born during the time of the year when the Dead are traditionally honored (I was the night before Halloween, and celebrate on Halloween), in the middle of harvest and humping season. My actual birth is also tangentially related in very potent + specific + private ways to all three of these topics in ways that had significant impact on me as a person from childhood through to my adult years.
It's also a clown on the fact that my writing topics trend towards the controversial as fuck and basically everything I word-vomit about is in some way connected back to one of those topics, or is generally just considered a topic you don't discuss in ~polite~ society or company.
I have a deep interest in axiology (the philosophical study of value - i.e., ethics and aesthetics), which is all tangled up in discussing Big Questions related to death, sex, and taxes.
Death, sex, and taxes all represent conceptual values (The unknown & change; vulnerability, intimacy + pleasure; community, power, and value) that are repeat themes in my world and work.
