  1. this is beautiful, as always, and i love that i got to spend time with you while you were drawing it to see how it gets made! so so so cool – you are super talented and also a fucking wonderful person. JUST THOUGHT YOU SHOULD KNOW. xoxo.

  2. I always look forward to reading your comic! I’m a fellow Leo and growing up I hated reading horoscopes that treated me like a drama queen so I did my best to tuck that undesirable quality away. That advice really resonates with me, thank you! Also, do you have a stellium in Leo? (I don’t know the rest of your chart, but your Mercury is probably either in Leo, Cancer, or Virgo).

    • MJ, this is so funny! Alyssa is my housemate and is resplendent in her triple Leo-ness, and you’re the person who is my direct frame of reference oftentimes for how Alyssa expresses herself. Alyssa, MJ is the person who first introduced me to legit astrology! Most of the advice/facts I’ve mentioned about Leo’s to Alyssa are my interpretation of what MJ has taught me! I’ve definitely mentioned them to your a couple times. THIS IS ENTIRELY FULL CIRCLE. I love that together we have all been deconstructing what it means to be a Leo in so many beautiful ways. I LOVE YOU QUEERS. This is so blessed.
