Summer Things and The Signs

The Fire Signs - Aries, Leo, Sagittarius

“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.”

water balloon fights, camping, amusement parks, berry picking, beach volleyball, freckles coming out, tanned legs, finding fun shapes in the clouds, music festivals, roasted marshmallows, flowercrowns, blowing dandelion seeds, drinking ice-cold cocktails


The Earth Signs - Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn

“At these times, the things that troubled her seemed far away and unimportant: all that mattered was the hum of the bees and the chirp of birdsong, the way the sun gleamed on the edge of a blue wildflower, the distant bleat and clink of grazing goats.”

stargazing, rollerblades, family barbecues, lying in the sun, iced coffee, strawberries for breakfast, waking up to birdsong, wearing your swimsuit all day, the warm evening breeze, relaxing in a hammock, walking through fields of flowers, the gleaming morning light


The Air Signs - Gemini, Libra, Aquarius

“Overhead hung a summer sky furrowed with the rush of rockets; and from the east a late moon, pushing up beyond the lofty bend of the coast, sent across the bay a shaft of brightness which paled to ashes in the red glitter of the illuminated boats.”

the smell of sunscreen, taking photos in the open countryside, travelling, driving at night, long walks on the beach, open-air concerts, jumping in lakes, farmer markets, long and flowy summerdresses, blowing bubbles, picking wild flowers, sleeping under the stars


The Water Signs - Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces

“In the long dusks of summer we walked the suburban streets through scents of maple and cut grass, waiting for something to happen.”

collecting sea shells, sunsets, walking barefoot, midsummer thunderstorms, going on a roadtrip, bonfires, reading a book by the pool, drive-in movies, late night walks, eating watermelon, snorkeling, watching fireflies, sleeping with the windows open, sandy feet, soft warm breezes stroking your ankles

The Twin Peaks sign, by day and by night. Twin Peaks opened in 1935 and has been operating as a gay bar since 1972. I believe it is SF’s oldest continually operating gay bar, and it’s said to be the first gay bar in the country to have a windowed façade, allowing patrons to see out and be seen in a time when homosexuality was criminalized and heavily policed. It’s still a great place to hang out in the Castro! 🌈
