Badass #Repost from @astrotwins using @RepostRegramApp - ⏰ BLACK HISTORY MONTH ⭐️ We astrologers owe much of our work to Benjamin Banneker (1731-1806), a self-educated African American with Sun, moon and Mercury in mystical Scorpio ♏️, who was born free and taught himself astronomy and mathematics. From 1792-97, Banneker wrote and published his own yearly almanac and ephemeris (map of the stars), an annual guide that modern astrologers (including us!) use to track the planets and zodiac transits each year. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Banneker’s ephemerides, which he constructed by hand using a telescope, were uncannily accurate. In 1788, using books and a tools borrowed from a friend, Banneker correctly predicted a total eclipse of the Sun. He began publishing his almanacs, which contained his own political and humanitarian writings.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This outspoken astro-hero even called out Aries Thomas Jefferson for hypocrisy. Banneker sent a copy of his almanac to Jefferson, along with a letter chiding him: If, as the Declaration of Independence claimed, all men are created equal, then why couldn’t Jefferson abolish slavery? Slaves, at the time, were only considered “3/5 of a person.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Jefferson wrote back directly, praising the almanac and letting Banneker know that he’d submitted it to the French Academy of Sciences. Although the Founding Father did not come through beyond that, gutsy, unapologetic Banneker published Jefferson’s response in his 1793 almanac, along with his original correspondence. (We credit his outspoken Jupiter in mighty Leo, and fearless Mars in blunt Sagittarius.)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Banneker was born while Saturn (a.k.a. Chronos, the ruler of time) was transiting its home sign of Capricorn. No surprise he’s most famous for hand-carving a striking wooden clock, which he made after only seeing two timepieces in his life. The clock ran for 40 years and eerily, burned to the ground along with Banneker’s cabin, on the day of his funeral. (Scorpio magic?)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Banneker’s contributions to astrology may not be well known—yet—but we are forever grateful to this smart, fearless triple Scorpio. 🙏🏾

A kiss is a powerful thing 💓💋
Repost from @britishmuseum using @RepostRegramApp - ‘The Kiss’ is one of Auguste Rodin’s most famous works. Made in 1882, it was inspired by a moment in Italian writer Dante Alighieri’s epic poem The Divine Comedy. Dante meets the lovers Paolo and Francesca in his travels around hell. They had been murdered by Francesca’s husband (Paolo’s brother) after he discovered the lovers together. The sculpture sees them at the moment just before death, lost in reckless passion. The sculpture was soon detached from its literary reference, and became a more general image of a kiss – a passionate and private moment. Rodin sought to capture the essence of his models, and give them a new form, rather than rigidly copy from nature. Whether the viewer knows the literary origins of this work or not, the sculpture casts us in the role of voyeur.
See this and other masterpieces on loan from @museerodinparis in our #RodinExhibition, which brings together exceptional pieces of sculpture to tell the story of one of the most radical artists of the modern era. Learn more and book tickets via the link in our bio.
