Many people aspire to be Leo, but not everyone can attain such golden grace. It is particularly tricky when you are a Virgo striving to be Leo.
Lina Plioplyte New York
Where did you grow up?
In Vilnius, Lithuania
Where do you live?
I lived in a few places in the American West, but I found a home in Brooklyn.
Your star sign?
I’m the first day of Virgo, but I like to call myself Leo. I feel more like Leo.
Who is your style icon?
Right now, maybe Axl Rose-Grace Jones-Daphne Guinness hybrid.
What do you do or what would you like to do when you grow up?
I make videos right now (teenagepeanut.com). I would love to make Videos when I grow up.
So I was going to call this post The Wannabe Leo, but that felt a bit Mean Girl.
Going off the pics here, is Lina an actual Virgo? Or could she be born “on the first day of Virgo” but maybe the Sun was still in Leo. If she were born before 6 am, she could have Leo Rising, and the Sun could STILL be in Leo.
One thing is tres clear; she is trying extremely hard to vibe Leo. Leopardskin hatboxes, purple suede boots, a feather quill pen, dinky little violets (did you know that in the olden days, to give someone violets as a gift meant “you are vulgar”?), platinum blonde statement hair, the fuqing fox stole & well you guys figure it out for me.
Is she secretly an actual Leo?
An alien trying to morph into Leo?
A Virgo in denial? Her site is meticulous, v.Virgo & observational.
A bullshitting Aquarius – purple? Axl Rose as a role model, style icon whatever?
All her style icons are Fixed Signs: Aquarius, Taurus, Leo – she craves the definitive nature of the Fixed Signs?
It’s not easy to be Virgo striving to be Leo. Is she pulling it off? I feel like she is aspiring to be Performance Leo but has skipped the preliminary steps.
