Welcome to the fourth Queer Astrology Club meeting! At this point, you should know your sign, have a working list of the people in your inner circle and their birthdays, and you should be aware of who in your life was born under the elements of fire and earth.
Go ahead and pull that list out again, as this week we’re going to breeze through a lesson on air signs. In life, air gives us breath, freeing our souls to enjoy our time on Earth. In the same sense, people born under air signs crave independence and liberation. They can become easily restless if tied down in stuffy, regimented surroundings. As air is the one element that connects all the others (fire, water, and earth) air signs are known for their social natures and innate intelligence. Almost universally, those born under the three air signs strive to stop worrying about others’ opinions and feel liberated enough to follow the pull of their brilliant and bright ideas.
Arguably the most ridiculed sign of the zodiac, other signs often assume that Geminis’ twins symbolize unsavory, two-faced behavior. In truth, Geminis are gentle, affectionate, communicative, and intelligent people. They are complicated signs, housing two unique personalities, which can make it difficult for them to find their “other half” in other people.
As the scales suggest, Librans are known for being fair-minded individuals. However, their diplomatic nature and urge for balance can sometimes lead to indecisiveness. Innate people-pleasers, Librans crave partnership and will often avoid confrontations at all costs.
♒Aquarius (born Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Symbol: The Water Carrier
Famous Aquarians: Samantha Irby, Stephanie Beatriz
Though their name and symbol allude to water, progressive, insightful, and caring Aquarians are very much air signs. They are independent individuals who love alone time. Though they love being a part of a community, they can appear shy, quiet, and aloof as they sometimes lack the confidence to express their eccentric personalities publicly.
Did you mark the air signs on your list as we moved through them? If not, get to it: That’s your homework for this week. As you note the air signs in your life, think about how their connective nature manifests in your relationships with them. Do they connect you to other people? Another side of yourself? New ways of seeing the world? Share your findings with us in the comments.
Just like that, we’re more than halfway through the queer astrology series and you all are doing great! Next week, we’ll dive into the signs belonging to the final element: Water. In the meantime, keep your eyes on the skies.
