Queery co-host Megan Elliott Flowers chats it up with Brookly-based astrologer Alice Sparkly Kat, who says astrology is the ideal magical lens through which we can parse the harsh neoliberal and colonial systems of power that harm marginalized people. Their new book Postcolonial Astrology: Reading The Planets Through Capital, Power, and Labor explores astrology as an intersectional, political and magickal language, decoding the planets from a postcolonial perspective.
Postcolonial Astrology is available for pre-order at Madison’s queer and trans-owned A Room of One’s Own Bookstore. Alice Sparkly Kat will hold a live virtual event with Room next Wednesday at 7pm on Instagram. Find more information on the event here.
