Cat Marnell Astrology Notes. She is a Virgo beauty columnist, keen drug user, and millennial Hunter S Thompson, if he were in women’s magazines.
She is is the media anti-thesis to all the green smoothie chugging insta-It-girls at ease in the lotus position and with influencer contracts/hedge fund hubbies.
If you don’t know her, she was the offbeat beauty columnist for XOJane and then wrote a ‘drugs column’ for Vice called Amphetamine Logic. When i first heard she had a new book coming out – the just-released How To Murder Your Life – i was honestly surprised she was still alive and happening.
She could be the daughter or mysteriously cloned psychic DNA offspring of the big-in-the-90s Leo Elizabeth (Prozac Nation) Wurtzel. And like Charlie Sheen, she comes across as the Anti-Virgo. What sort of Virgo would make such a horrendous fuq up of a much longed-for media career? Or so brazenly describe her squalid bedroom or being shit-faced on a night out attending the Cirque De Soleil with a V.I.P. beauty client?
Marnell polarizes people. I wouldn’t want my daughter reading this book. She’s an unapologetic addict and with presumably little consciousness as to how her carry-on has affected the people who have to work with her. She has shat all over opportunities that her peers would have seized with open grateful hands. This is not a how-to sobriety memoir.
But I tell you where she is totally Virgo – She can WRITE. Really, really well. There is an extract here and i cannot help but speculate whether the V.I.P. was Taurus beauty billionaire heiress Aerin Lauder. So, I loved this book. Another Cat Marnell Astrology detail of interest. She has Mercury in Libra conjunct Saturn and Pluto. Yes, that Saturn-Pluto conjunction of late 1982, which I refer to in my Saturn-Pluto 2020 Mp3. So she has a super-strength Mercury with a formidable voice through all the noise, buzz and smoky haze.
