In every generation, there are individuals who dedicate their lives to fighting for civil and women’s rights as well as sticking it to “The Man” when he just won’t do right by us!
The following twelve people are either social activists or artists who we feel have used their platforms to promote change, and we believe embody everything that their respective zodiacs signs stand for. Tell us if we nailed it!!
Capricorn – Martin Luther King Jr.
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
Capricorn believe in the natural order of things so why would they not go against what’s tried and true?
Aquarius – Angela Davis
“We have to talk about liberating minds as well as liberating society.”
Those born under the sign of Aquarius are very intellectual beings which makes sense that a woman like Angela Davis stressed the importance of changing the way people think.
Pisces – Erykah Badu
“If we were made in his image, then call us by our names/ Most intellects do not believe in God but they fear us just the same.”
Pisces will call you out if you don’t give credit where it’s due. Put some respeck on the originator’s name!
Aries – Maya Angelou
“Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.”
Fiery Aries is one of the signs that doesn’t easily give up on the things that they want. They remain hopeful that the stars will align with their intent.
Taurus – Malcolm X
“Be peaceful, be courteous, obey the law, respect everyone; but if someone puts his hand on you, send him to the cemetery.”
Taurus can be very aggressive, but they only put that much energy behind something that is important to them.
Gemini – Tupac
“My mama always used to tell me, ‘If you can’t find somethin’ to live for, you best find somethin’ to die for.’”
Very rarely will you meet a Gemini with no sense of purpose.
Cancer – DeRay McKesson
“I love my blackness. And yours.”
Cancer loves people in their natural state and blackness is so beautiful to them!
Leo – Haile Selassie
“If you are open-minded and ready to learn, there are many things which you can learn not only from books and instructors, but form the very life experience itself.”
Leo lives life to the fullest and this quote is a definite key to getting all that you can out of life.
Virgo – Beyoncé
“You just might be a black Bill Gates in the making/ I just might be a black Bill Gates in the making.”
Virgos know that they can achieve any goal they set. Why not set out to be one of the richest people on this planet?
Libra – Honorable Elijah Muhammad
“The black man is the first and last, maker and owner of the universe.”
Libra is about facts and what’s just. To them, justice is giving credit where it’s due.
Scorpio – Angela Rye
Scorpios just don’t have time for the mess, okay? They’ll shut you down before you can even start with the alternative facts. Case in point:
Sagittarius – Symone Sanders
“People have been telling me to shut up my entire life, and I just can’t. And I won’t.”
Sagittarius tell it like it is no matter how blunt! You won’t be able to silence them especially when it comes to matters that they’re super passionate about.
