Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes her on Twitter: "we were trying to have a "vacation in our hometown" but now it looks like we might end up on someone's couch.#greensboroproblems" [1], "First of all, as a cancer sun cancer moon, every time I hear about a fire or air sun with a cancer moon I just pray for y’all" [2], "Honestly I been hiding from IG bc this app gives me anxiety but in the meantime I’ve taken so many pictures and videos that I’ve been wanting to post BUT my Virgo rising got me out here stressin over nonsense like… " [3]. A speculative birth time of 12 noon gives Virgo rising.
