A short one, but just to update you all and end Season 1 of Hacking Astrology. Thank you for listening!
'When Astrology is Toxic' with TheDivineVenus, OG of Astrology Youtube | Episode 4, Part 2/2

Spillin' Tea with TheDivineVenus, OG of Astrology Youtube | Episode 4, Part 1/2
This week, I was joined by one of my astrology teachers and mentors, someone who helped me get into astrology, Alyssa Sharpe, aka TheDivineVenus. Alyssa is one of the OG content creators in the astrology community, and once we became friends and realized we had flipped conjunct lunar nodes, we knew we had to get her on the podcast. In this first part, I interview Alyssa about her life story from birth to her future. We talk about her origins in the church and how that fueled her passion for astrology. We discuss her marriage and divorce, and we get into her experience of fame on Youtube and dealing with being "canceled" multiple times.
Decolonizing the Astrology of Career & Money: Capitalism, Purpose, and Materialism in Your Chart | Episode 3
In our third episode, I am discussing toxic capitalism in astrology and how we, as an astrology community, eternalize capitalism through certain perspectives we have on signs, houses, and planets. I talk about capitalism present in the tenth, sixth, and second house, the houses of money in your chart. I also talk about the historical framing of astrology to be capitalistic. What is your purpose? Is it career? Or is it your liberation?

We talked about the boundaries that someone should have when using astrology in their love life. We also discussed how astrology proves the existence of the LGBTQIA+ community. Check it out and hear our unique perspective on the astrological concepts of love, such as synastry charts and compatibility.
Deconstructing the Astrology of Love, Gender, and Sexuality: Compatibility and Queerness in Your Chart | Episode 2, Part 1
In this second episode, I am breaking down the basics of love astrology and identifying when someone’s relationship with astrological compatibility goes sour and toxic. Why does this happen? And how can we do synastry in a healthy way? I also discuss heteronormative gendering that happens in the astrology community, break down the basics of gender in the zodiac, and queer up astrology to teach you how to identify queerness in the chart.
