If You Love Art, Astrology, or Just Need a Different Platform, Check Out my New Website

Karina Lafayette – February 24th 2023

If there’s one thing I learned during my Saturn Return, it’s I’ll never fit in, and that’s absolutely okay, because neither do a lot of people. A lot of voices aren’t counted in the world of social media and even beyond it, and what does Nina Simone say? “You’ve got to learn to leave the table when love is no longer being served.” But to put her idea further, you have to build your own table, and make sure that the people sitting there genuinely are meant to be there. And that’s what I’m doing with my brand new social media space. I’m building a table especially for those who don’t have a seat at the others. And I’m not doing this to be rebellious or make a statement, I’m really doing this to prove that social media can be done properly, with feeling. What started as an idea for a space for artists and astrology lovers, became more.

The Talking Stage: A Great Way to Disrespect Yourself

Wednesday Journal Entry, Week 36

June 7th 2023 – Karina Lafayette

“But what if I don’t want to live the way you live?”

“Don’t be ridiculous, Andrea, everybody wants this.”

Most of us have seen the trend on Tiktok, where people mock this classic dialogue from The Devil Wears Prada to refer to things that are normal to those who do it, but that seem atrocious to everyone else. My favorite version is when people use this trend to mock situationships within the horrendousness known as today’s dating scene.

Of course, situationships wouldn’t exist without the infamous talking stage.

What It’s Like Being the Chronically Late Person

May 28th 2023 – Karina Lafayette

“I’m very late, for a very important date!” Said the White Rabbit.

If you’re anything like me, the White Rabbit is probably the character you relate to the most in Lewis Caroll’s Alice in Wonderland. You feel like everybody hates you. You set your alarm clock an hour earlier, and still show up late. People give you looks and wonder where you got the audacity to seem so out of touch.

The Key to Deeper Relationships… Astrology

Wednesday Journal Entry, Week 35

April 19th 2023 – Karina Lafayette

All it takes is a spark, but where does that spark come from, and how do we know when it’ll lead to a warm glow, or something destructive? Do you give every person a chance, or do you practice some discernment?

For some reason, we live in a world where a lot of us are taught this idea that when it comes to relationships, we should settle for the first person to smile from across the room, or that we shouldn’t be picky. ‘Cause apparently we need to be grateful for getting some attention, even any attention at all. But the more I’ve become familiar with my birth chart, and the more I pay attention to the people in my life, the more I realize that not everyone I meet will be for me. And you don’t need to believe in astrology to understand that.

The Day Juno Divorced Jupiter: Uranus-Juno Transit 2023

Wednesday Journal Entry, Week 34

April 12th 2023 – Karina Lafayette

Trigger Warning for sexual assault mention**

Rain poured down from the heavens as something least expected took place amongst the gods. It’s a shock for everyone, but in all honesty, it’s been a long time coming.

Maybe it was due to the fact that Jupiter was known for his many indiscretions in his marriage. Maybe it was due to his affair with Io, where he turned himself into a cloud in order to be intimate with her without Juno knowing. Maybe it was due to him transforming into a white bull to lure Europa and kidnap her. Maybe it was due to him conceiving Mercury with the goddess Maia. […]

This Virgo Rising is Done with Limerence

Wednesday Journal Entry, Week 32 ½

March 29th 2023 – Karina Lafayette

I remember the first time I saw him. I remember the last time I saw him. I came back to my locker to get something and on my way out, he was standing at his, getting ready to leave, too. I turned to him and said “bye”. I had to repeat it twice, and I’m not sure if he didn’t hear me the first time, or if he just didn’t want to look at me. Finally he turned around to say it… “Bye”. I left. It was silly, but I almost imagined like in the movies, that he would chase after me and ask that I stay. It was raining, just hard enough so no one could tell I was crying. He didn’t chase me. He came to work in his car, so part of me hoped that he’d pull over instead. He didn’t. I just kept marching on to the bus stop.

Social Media Tried to Paint Me as Just an Astrologer: I’m Literally an Artist, Babe

Wednesday Journal Entry, Week 32

March 29th 2023 – Karina Lafayette

Earlier I was watching the movie Divergent, and it got me thinking about my own life, and how if I were to live in that type of society, divided by factions, I would have been just like Beatrice, or Tris- divergent. A rebel. An embarrassment. Someone who has the audacity to not belong, because my mind simply isn’t wired in one direction. The younger me would’ve tried to do what she did, blend and fit in in order to please and pander to the masses. In the scene where she picks Dauntless at the Choosing Ceremony, I think of all the times I did something just to appease others, to not rock the boat, and ensure peace was maintained.

Luckily I’m not that young anymore. I’m thirty, the age where you give less of a shit what society teaches you, or at least, you get better at pretending just enough that people have no choice but to stop telling you what to do. And if they try, you get ready for war.

Pluto is Now in Aquarius

March 22nd 2023 – Karina Lafayette

Fasten your seatbelts and welcome to the future! Pluto enters Aquarius today for the first time since the French Revolution. As one of the slowest moving planets, Pluto marks the generations, which means Generation Beta is slowly on the way. One notable person who had Pluto in Aquarius was none other than Mary Shelley, the mother of science fiction and author of Frankenstein. Her own mother was Mary Wollstonecraft, one of the pioneers of women’s rights.

Pluto will be in Aquarius till June, before it retrogrades back into Capricorn till January. For now, we’re getting a glimpse of what’s to come for the next twenty years! To learn all about Pluto in Aquarius, click here.

Juno, Not Just a Wifey in Astrology

Wednesday Journal Entry, Week 31

March 22nd 2023 – Karina Lafayette

Sometimes, this is the first person you go to when something good happens in your life. This is the person you want to give everything to, whether you receive in return. It’s the person who’ll give you a side-eye anytime you make a mistake, but who still sees the best in you. They’re the person who struggles to tell you “no”, because they haven’t learned that love means having boundaries. It’s the person you take the bus with when there aren’t any cabs available. More importantly, this is the person who’s there when everyone else has given up on you. At worst, they can be the person who shows you where you need to put your foot down. And often, this is the person you can’t forget and who you’ll love forever, even when it’s been years since you’ve last spoken. They’re probably your Juno, or you’re theirs.
