Zora Neale Hurston, “Old To Young” Capricorn
With new works of hers continuously being discovered, Zora Neale Hurston was an anthropologist and writer of the Harlem Renaissance, whose life was committed to documenting Black life and the Black experience. Her most famous work, a novel titled Their Eyes Were Watching God, has been loved by generations and even been adapted into a film since its original publication back in 1937.
Related to her love of societal documentation, Miz Chartreuse said that Capricorns’ sense of responsibility pertains to society, culture, and the world at large. As “Born bosses,” people with birthdays ranging from December 22nd to January 19th, are said to “age in reverse” because they tend to be mature and wise in their youth — while becoming more relaxed as they get older. As a cardinal earth sign, the astrologist continued, they bring tenacity, discipline, and groundedness to the table — with the willingness to keep climbing the mountain for a purpose bigger than oneself always being there. Fellow Capricorns include Michelle Obama and Madam CJ Walker.
