September 23 is Roxxxy Andrews’ birthday.
I was surprised to discover that I haven’t written a birthday post about Roxxxy Andrews because I’ve discussed her a few times already on this blog, most notably here.
After her initial stint on Season 5 of “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” I loathed her in the way that I loathed her fellow Libra, legendary workroom villain Phi Phi O’Hara. But after her successful quest for redemption in “All Stars 2,” I’ve learned to like her — sequins dress and all.
I wouldn’t be surprised if she showed up again on a future season of “All Stars” as a contestant because of her appearance as a lip-sync assassin on “All Stars 5” where she virtually ate Miz Cracker alive, leaving nothing but a trail of crumbs on the stage.
I had a look at her natal chart to see if anything in particular stood out because I’m always fascinated by how many Libra contestants (A) quit the show, (B) become fan favorites, and (C) behave as passive/aggressive villains on “Untucked.”
The most interesting thing is that she only has the sun and Pluto in Libra. The sun in Libra can be a weak placement. Her moon is in Aries, which does nothing to make her more balanced, diplomatic and/or Libra-like. She also has Venus and Mars conjunct in Leo, and Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto all in Sagittarius. There is far more fire in her chart than any other element.
So, to say that she is a typical Libra would be a mistake. Aside from her passive/aggressive workroom terrorism in her debut appearance on the show, she’s nothing like the queens who typically define her sign. However, many astrologers believe that individuals grow into their sun signs as they age, dropping the pretense provided by their rising signs. Maybe she’s doing that right now. With every appearance she makes on “Drag Race,” she becomes a little more likable. Does that mean that she will eventually join the ranks of fan favorites like Adore Delano, BenDeLaCreme, Chi Chi Devayne, Vanessa Vanjie Mateo and Heidi N Closet?
Probably not, but at least she’s on the right track. I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to say the same about Phi Phi O’Hara . . .
