Your Daily Western and Chinese Horoscopes for Friday, July 9th, 2021

Western Astrology

In the morning, the Cancer moon squares Chiron in Aries, stirring sensitivities relative to personal safety. Instead of seeking validation from others, we commit to being our own rock. But in the present moment, self-protective instincts can be hard to negotiate alongside self-doubt. Following this connection, the moon sextiles Uranus in Taurus, helping us to shrug off morning moodiness and be more proactive in our engagements with others. Prevailing problems don’t seem as deep now. We can make adjustments that will leave us feeling more centered, acknowledging that we can’t always control our circumstances, and that all moods eventually pass.

Overachiever Magazine was started by Rehana Paul in October of 2018 to give a platform to all Asian women, non-binary people, and other gender minorities.

Our name is poking fun at the stereotype that all Asians are overachievers, especially Asian women, non-binary people, and other gender minorities. It’s also in recognition of all of us who have had no choice but to be overachievers: managing societal expectations, family obligations, and educational opportunities, all while fighting the patriarchy.

We have grown since then, putting out bimonthly issues (we are contributor powered: apply to write for our next one!), and weekly reviews of culture, and news that is important to us.

You can find announcements, more news, and get to know our staff on social media: give us a follow, and learn how you can get involved today!

We do not claim to speak for all Asian women, non-binary people, and other gender minorities. We are just here to give them a place to speak for themselves.

We hope you’ll join us.
