November 3 is Kandy Muse’s birthday.
I don’t like Kandy Muse. To me, she is the drag equivalent of a sledgehammer to the head. I guess I prefer my queens to be a little more subtle.
Anyway, for a hot minute she was the most-successful Scorpio queen in “Drag Race” herstory. Sherry Pie had a better track record than Kandy, but we all know what happened to her. Carmen Farala from “Drag Race Espana” actually won the competition, but I typically don’t discuss the foreign language versions of the show while they are airing because it sometimes takes a few months for my readers to catch up on those shows (I don’t want to be accused of spoiling the outcome). Coincidentally, today is also Carmen Farala’s birthday.
I’ve published a few posts on this blog about how badly the Scorpio contestants have fared on “RuPaul’s Drag Race.” Along with the Capricorn queens, their fortunes have changed somewhat over the past couple of seasons. When Carmen Farala won, she claimed the victory for the only zodiac sign that hadn’t ever taken home the crown. Symone, the queen who beat Kandy Muse in the finale of Season 13, became the first Capricorn winner. Shortly after that happened, Capricorns Silky Nutmeg Ganache and Laganja Estranja received their redemption edits on “All Stars 6.”
With Pluto still in Capricorn, that makes sense. It also makes sense that the Scorpio queens are also making their comebacks in the competition. I probably should sort through the zodiac signs of the current and upcoming contestants on the Canadian, English and Italian versions of the show to see if there are any scorpions in the mix. The cosmic climate may still favor the queens born under those two signs.
And that all reminds me that I still would love to start a podcast to discuss nothing but “Drag Race” astrology. If anyone out there would like to co-host something of that nature, please drop me a line in the comments section or on one of my social media accounts. I’d love to pair up with a drag queen who knows a little more about what it’s actually like to do drag because that is certainly not my area of expertise.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to get back to disliking Kandy Muse . . .
