What Sets A Lady On Fire: @notallgeminis Valentine’s Day Memes

Happy Valentine’s Day, queerly beloveds! Because romance is nothing without astrology, and astrology is nothing without lesbian memes, the endlessly truth-telling Instagram meme artist @notallgeminis aka Courtney Perkins, kindly dropped us a sly little valentine on what sets our hearts blazing. She asks that you check your Venus and Mars, so don’t be lazy. And yes, it is okay to call out yourself and others in the comments, love is about being seen.

  1. Me: Cap sun/Cap Venus/Aquarius Mars
    My partner: Aquarius sun/Cap venus/Sag Mars

    And yes, last night we skipped going out dancing and instead toasted cava and then went into separate rooms to work on our personal creative practices. It was divine.

  2. Maybe I’m really a Sagittarius with Libra moon rather than a Cancerian with Venus AND goddamned Mars in Cancer and Scorpio moon.

    Also, Virgos – the ones I know – are secretly thinking “get out that nice high-quality kinky toy of yours I really like and … (just don’t touch that part/misplace my glasses/get icky things on the sofa)”
