Time to talk about the L word again…. Libras! Libra is ruled by Venus and Venus is all about our values so this episode we’re putting our values under a delicate vintage magnifying glass. Is it possible to own land and still be invested in justice? Once you marry someone who wants to colonize space are you queer? What makes a lesbian commune vs. a queer lesbian commune? And since Venus was still in Scorpio, and Scorpio loves other people’s money, play along while we imagine what dyke diversions we might dip into with $89,000,000.

Bisexual Blazer Energy
Join Rose and Gala as they wrap up Virgo season and prepare for Mercury retrograde in Libra by asking hard-hitting questions and not expecting you to answer them. Everyone knows that while Virgo is The Virgin in the texts of olde, they’re everyone’s favorite freak. But, isn’t it also true that Virgo’s the most bisexual of all the Zodiac signs? Cameron Diaz, Sara Ramirez, Evan Rachel Wood, Pink, Lili Reinhart, Jada Pinkett Smith, need we say more? Never-mind, we do. Speaking of bisexuals, and we definitely are, isn’t it time to retire “Gold Star” as a thing? Don’t we all put on our blazers one sleeve at a time? Isn’t it time for a little mutual reception? Whether you’ve been sowing and reaping, or heauxing and sleeping, the hosts of BDE are here to serve up a farmer’s market of dyke digressions.

Laughing, Lions, Loving, Labrys, Lusting (the way that we live)
Sun’s out and so are we in the newest episode of BDE. If pride is such a Leo thing then how come so many Gay Prides happen in Cancer season? Maybe that’s what Sister Sledge was singing about. Speaking of Leos, and we are, what was UP with Lion’s Gate? Listen to Rose’s case for Water Gate instead. In Leo season, we all get a gate. Except the younger generation of L Word: Gen Q, that is. Find out why we think they should be seen to the door instead.  And, if two medium age dykes droning about dramatic disappointment isn’t your cup of fair trade brew, we’ve slipped in more than a few rounds of “Top, Bottom, Verse?” to keep you in the game.  L Word Spoiler Time Stamps: 43:15-60:41

Are Jncos back?
As we savor the last hours of Taurus season, let’s take a beat and ask ourselves... is there anyone hotter than Kehlani? Nevermind, let’s talk about acrylic nails. Hands are a Gemini thing.

Squaring Saturn, Sexing Satan
When the dykes are online talking about fighting Mary Oliver and conservative squares won’t let Satan have a lap dance, we know it’s Aries season. In this episode, we spend a good deal of time talking Aries magic and the Chiron in Aries healing journey by way of Lil Nas X, his video for Montero and his natal transits too. What's healthier for a Chiron wound than a little sexual expression? What's the diff between an Aries Sun and Aries Moon? Nerd out, Astro-enthusiasts, while we venerate Mars and stimulate Pluto. Get in the car, homos, we’re going to hell ...metaphorically.  If you’d like to look along, the charts we pulled up use these dates and details: Birthday: 12:00 pm April 9, 1999, Atlanta, GA. 14th Birthday: April 9th, 2013 Old Town Road Initial Release: December 2, 2018 Old Town Road Hits Number one: April 13, 2019 Call Me By Your Name video premiere: March 25, 2021 Satan Shoes Released: March 29, 2021

Cut My Life in 2 Pisces, This is My Last Rebirth
Gather, gentle perverts, for another episode of BDE and another anniversary: a year since COVID19 forced all goddess's homosexuals apart and into their underwater caves. It began in Pisces season and to Pisces season it returns. In the hazy days of March, as we crawl about seeking vitamin D and good news, we mustn't forget our Pisces babes who work so hard to remind us how to have fun while never leaving the confines of one's imagination. In this playful yet persuasive episode, your hosts with the most (tears to shed, love to give) ponder the big questions: Are all Pisces doe-eyed dream babes in silks like Niecy Nash, or are some of them more likely to be found wearing RealTree t-shirts while boating with wild cats in a swamp? Does Rose have con-artist adjacent traits and what does being a Pisces rising have to do with it?
