Doja Cat’s birth chart reveals she’s unapologetically a ‘Boss B–ch’

Doja Cat, self-anointed for her teenage affinity for weed and felines, has become a veritable sign of the times.

Riding the wave of viral fame and the sea foam of controversy, Doja has collaborated with the likes of Nicki Minaj,Ariana Grande, Bebe Rexha, Post Malone, The Weenkd and SZA.

For her work with the latter, she won a Grammy Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for their certified sex positive space alien bop, “Kiss Me More” and nearly missed collecting the award because she was taking a “p–s.”

Doja rose to fame as a teen with her ode to drugs and dudes, “So High.” Since then she has stayed in the crossfire of cancel culture, having been called out on claims of homophobia, alt right leaning TinyChats trolling, appropriation and keeping seriously bad company in the form of disgraced producer Dr. Luke.

Doja recently announced, nee threatened, early retirement from music after getting into a social scuffle with her fans, known, adorably, as her kittens.

From cat fights and controversy to to cow costumes and cosmetics, what does Doja’s birth chart reveal about the erratic icon? Read on to learn more,

Doja Cat Big Three

Doja Cat, given name Amala Dlamini, was born unto us on October 21, 1995 making her a Libra sun with a Virgo moon. Normally, we don’t trust the dubious interwebs for accurate birth times but according to this clip and the testament of Doja Cat’s mom at minute 1:15, our girl was born at 7:14 AM making her a Libra rising, with sun, Mercury, North Node and Chiron all in the twelfth house of the unconscious mind and her Moon in the eleventh house of friends.

Sun in Libra – chocolate, sex, and vape

In astrology the sun is the self, our source of vitality and the direction of our life path. Doja has her sun in the cardinal sign of Libra. As the only sign in the zodiac represented by an inanimate object, Libras need something to react to and rebel against. We see this tendency in Doja, who, in addition to her frequent musical collaborations, often takes to social media to spar with others, presumably to draw inspiration and attention.

Libra is ruled by Venus, planet of beauty, music, attachment, assets and aesthetics. It is thus utterly in keeping with her zodiac sign that Doja is a musician as well as a cosmetics entrepreneur. Venusian influence, which tends towards indulgence is at least partially to blame for Doja’s hierarchy of needs which includes, “Chocolate, sex, and vape,” not necessarily in that order.

As an air sign, Libra is intellectual and highly adaptable. “There’s money, professional success in the face of disrespect, feminine power, plenty of sex,” The New York Times Magazine said of Doja’s 2021 album, “Planet Her.” “But the delivery is eclectic, shuffling through genres — hyperpop, disco, trap — with aplomb.” Within this album we clearly see Venusian themes delivered with the unmistakable style of an air sign.

Sun Square Uranus equals no filter

To add intrigue to the picture and chaos to the structure, our girl has her sun square Uranus, punk rock planet of boundary crossing and upheaval. This square bears the the mark of radical individualism. Those with this aspect are compelled to express themselves even, and perhaps especially, when that expression is in conflict with others or the status quo. The general energy here is abrupt and despite the influence of Libra, verbal exchanges can be accidentally jarring or intentionally shocking.

We see this in Doja’s 2021 Grammy acceptance speech, which she began with the now viral admission, “I have never taken such a fast piss in my whole life.” Further evidence of her confessional IDGAF style of communication is found in Tweets like “dragonflies are f****n little kinky little bastards.” Science by Doja Cat, a poem.

Perfectionist moon in the house of pals

Doja has her moon in the eleventh house. In astrology the moon represents our emotional interiority and the eleventh house is the house of friends. The placement of the most vulnerable celestial body within the house of community suggests a deep seated need to belong, to find purpose and validation through external relationships and to seek solace in platonic, like minded bonds. This need is both compounded by Doja’s sun in Libra, the sign of partnership, and complicated by the sun’s placement in the twelfth house of isolation.

There is a tension here between wanting to escape and wanting the acceptance of the group, a push and pull made manifest in Doja’s recent bid for retirement and general pension for social media trash talking. With a Virgo moon, the person can be petty and bent on perfection but within the eleventh house their path to success will be paved with supportive, invested associates. For Doja’s part, she repays the loyalty of her allies by throwing absolutely banging, and truly aesthetically aspirational birthday parties.

Venus in Scorpio in the first house

Doja has Venus in Scorpio in the first house. Within the birth chart, Venus indicates our aesthetic preferences, what and who we attract and our attachment style. Ruled by death daddy planet Pluto, Scorpio is concerned with themes of power, discovery, death and transformation. In this way, Doja fulfills the archetype of Scorpio by employing “a devour-digest-excrete rhythm that keeps up with consumers’ notoriously diminishing attention spans.” Indeed, Scorpio rules the genitalia and the excretory system, suggesting that Doja’s sexuality and the aforementioned devour, digest, excrete modality of her music are full frontal and fully present in her personality,  

As astrologer Chris McNulty of Hearth and Herald Astrology notes, “A native with Venus in the first house is a naturally magnetic person that can allure people with their style, wit, charm, and/or beautiful features, sometimes intoxicating those around them with their seductive aura. When Venus is in Scorpio, all of these characteristics take on an air of mystery or secrecy, as if the source of the native’s allure lies behind or below the immediate appearance. While Venus in the first house offers the native an innate charisma, Venus in Scorpio also requires a fair amount of energy from the native to achieve or maintain their aesthetic and may indicate some challenges in relationship, as this is the sign of Venus’s detriment.”

Sun conjunct Pluto

To add more Plutonian energy to the mix, Doja has her sun conjunct Pluto. This joining together of the sun, planet of selfhood and vitality and Pluto planet of death and power, is a lifelong lesson in limitation, destruction and the purification of purpose through trial and destruction. This is by no means an easy conjunction but it is one that is rife with potential. We see the reactive, dark nature of this conjunction in Doja’s response to the surfacing of controversial and homophobic language she had used in social media platforms in the past. Her initial retort was defensive and fell short, very, very short of acknowledgement and apology.

This conjunction pushes natives to and back from extremes and it took being effectively canceled to get Doja to admit her failures. Yet, given the grace of reflection, she came around to a humbled, contrite conclusion about her behavior. Like Doja, many of those who share this conjunction will struggle with feelings of obsession and resentment but they are free as soon as they realize that all of the obstacles and opposition they face exist to render them into their finest, and final, form. 

To that end, our girl seems to be very much in the process of becoming and whatever form that takes, we the world wait to witness it.
