Janay Anthony, Vice President (she/her)
Janay Anthony (she/hers) is a Hellenistic astrologer and tarot reader based in Chicago, IL. Her study of the subjects spans the better part of a decade, and she incorporates both traditional and modern techniques into her practice. In early 2020, she started getting actively involved in the astrological community and noticed an alarming lack of accessibility in the field. Along with accessibility, Janay is passionate about bringing inclusion and representation to astrology. As a queer, black woman with disabilities, she understands the pain of being part of communities that don’t hold space for such intersecting identities, and It’s her goal to create that space in astrology.
Outside of astrology, Janay’s interests span across a wide array. She graduated with a BA in Screenwriting in 2017. She also has a background in acting and is a singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. Another passion in Janay’s life is her love of human sexuality and sex education. She is currently in a Master’s program to become a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and receive certification as a sex therapist.
