For centuries, people have been using Astrology to understand more about themselves and the people around them. For some, it's a way to dive deeper into their spirituality; for others, it's escapism and an excuse used by people to justify their flaws and mistakes.
But the thing is: just like any other system, Astrology might say a lot about us, but it doesn't say everything.
You can either let it define you, or let it be one more tool towards your self discovery.
Learning who you are, what you like, what you feel, is a long journey. And you know what else helps? Art, creativity, self expression. Music.
Take, for example, a track like Princess Nokia's "Gemini", in which the rapper and singer shows her pride in being a Gemini Sun. The funky, jazzy "Gemini" is part of Nokia's "Everything is beautiful", a really good album in which she explores different sounds, topics, and so much more.
It's a beautiful record of a human being exploring her potential through her musicality, acknowledging that she, as a multi layered human being, can dance from one rhythm to another and still keep her balance ("I am Gemini, two heads, one eye", she raps, in a reference to the concept of the third eye), finding herself in all of these rhythms, cohesively.

About the curator: Ana Clara Ribeiro
Music, art and entertainment have always played a big role in the life of Ana Clara Ribeiro. She grew up in Gurupi (an inland city in Tocantins, the youngest State of Brazil), listening to all kinds of music, reading, writing, watching stuff and connecting them to her personal beliefs and other ideas she read about.
As she became a lawyer and a writer, all the topics to which she is constantly exposed continued to give her insights about life, people and the universe, through the lenses of art.
Nowadays, when she isn’t analyzing lawsuits or producing content about Law, Marketing, Business or Music, she is certainly doing something related to her various personal and professional projects, always to the sound of a playlist as eclectic as her life.

Snoop Dogg’s voice and relaxed flow fits the beat extremely well, and the opening line of his verse might explain how he manages to still be on top of his game even after almost 30 years active: “Nothing last forever unless you talking ’bout my rap game“… Quoting a famous Brazilian song, “nice and slow is how we get there” – this seems to be his philosophy…
