The weird saga of New York’s “hottest Vegan” fascinated many people but I was most surprised by the Sarma Melngailis astrology! She’s a Triple Virgo! Seriously when i first saw The Downfall Of NYC’s Hottest Vegan I thought it was a tragicomic vehicle for Reese Witherspoon or Rachel McAdam even. But it’s real.
Read the story for full details but basically, it is about Sarma Melngailis a Virgo vegan, with a super-chic-successful restaurant and fit as a fox, who came undone via a Saturn transit. Note: If you’re living a lie, Saturn transits will effectively unmask it. You’d think Change Gods Uranus or Pluto would but no – those transits are when you unmask yourself.
Anyway, she is now in prison, facing multiple charges, including grand larceny, tax fraud and violation of labor laws. The dude is facing even more charges, but they’re no longer a couple. This is not a love story.
The Most Shocking Sarma Melngailis astrology fact? She’s Triple Virgo
But, she’s got Mercury square Neptune which has a transcendental dimension but which can also be slippery with the truth. Mercury-Neptune people are seductive, eloquent and aspirational.
It is a surreal tale complete with lines like this;
“He said he was a retired Navy Seal, shot in the line of action in the chest. I would always see what I thought were bandages, but he was just taping his man boobs down.”
“A delivery of non-organic, cheesy Dominoes outed them.”
“She was lonely because she was obsessed. She worked constantly, often sleeping at her office.”
“There are no gluten-free, vegan, organic options in jail. She is having to make do with cucumbers…”
I am paraphrasing but you get the point. How could such a now person end up bemoaning the lack of contemporary nutrition options in a prison? A staunch anti-gambling advocate & icon of the raw foodie scene turned felon? She is charged with stealing the profits from her healthy restaurant chain to fund this guy’s dodgy gambling/biz crap. She was also nabbed ordering a particularly greasy – animal fat laden variety of delivery pizza.
It is the latter that seems to be shocking the most people. It is also haunting. Many people know what it is like to be grinding away, putting your all into a business you love and being literally unable to meet potential lovers. Perhaps she lifted her head up from the books, jumped into online dating and met a marginal man?
Of course, there is a court case to come out of all this yet and Ms. Melngailis will have the chance to tell her side of the story. It somehow seems so zeitgeist.
