Welcome to #DOOZMUSE Diary, where we spotlight friends of the DOOZ community to take a glimpse at their lives through an astrological lens. To kick off the series, we spoke with Julia Johnson, a Cancer.
Hey Julia, what are your big 3 — Sun, Moon, and Rising signs?
Cancer, Aquarius and Capricorn.
3 adjectives to describe you?
Outgoing, patient, attentive.
Where do you live/where are you from?
I live in Montreal, Quebec, Canada! I was born in Montreal, moved to Vancouver for a few years when I was younger and then came back to Montreal.
What do you do for work? Does your sign play into your career at all?
I work for a fashion distribution company. We distribute around 25 lines across Canada and I am the brand manager for a couple of them - Jbrand, Rails and HVISK.
Cancer is known as the crab, which, of course, has a tough external shell. Clothing is a sort of armor we all wear, so that’s an interesting parallel. Your job sounds like it requires major organization and staying on top of many accounts. That Capricorn energy must come in handy.
What’s a typical morning look like for you? How does astrology play into that? For example, are you an emotional water sign who likes to get their feelings out by journaling every morning?
I am such a morning person! Most mornings I wake up in a good mood and love being around people. Although, lately, I really have come to appreciate my alone time in the morning. I recently moved into an apartment alone and I make sure to wake up a bit earlier than I used to, feed my dog, bring him for a walk then I’ll make myself a coffee and sit, read and/or scroll through my phone lol. I find giving 30 mins to myself before actually starting my day and going to work really helps me relax and get my mind around what I have to do during the day!
Given your chart placements, it makes so much sense that you crave that time to yourself. Also, prioritizing your pup first thing, that’s a classic nurturing Cancer for ya!
What books are on your nightstand right now?
I just started reading Normal People by Sally Rooney.
Sally Rooney is a Pisces, fellow water sign.
Current playlist/songs on repeat?
Hmm so many!! But lately I am super into Belgian singer Angèle.
What’s your one beauty secret?
I don’t wash my face with water every night! I use micellar water and every other night will exfoliate my face. My skin has been pretty clear since I started this routine.
How do you style the DOOZ Sweater-T?
I have been dressing so casual lately - I guess because of WFH so usually just with a pair of jeans and flip flops!
Flip flops = summer = beach. Very aquatic and appropriate.
What does the work day look like for you? Does your zodiac sign help you out? Are you a super organized earth sign that loves to check off a long to-do list?
My day usually consists of communicating with my accounts, seeing if the merchandise is selling well, working with the customer to see what they need to improve sales, etc. During sales season, I am usually in selling appointments with buyers or traveling to see the new season’s collection. I believe Cancers are warm, approachable and easy to get along with which helps me create a connection and relationship with the buyers, they trust my taste and know I am giving them my honest opinion.
Do you gravitate towards certain signs as friends/collaborators/partners?
Many of my friends are fire signs which are usually supposed to “clash” with water signs! Seems to be working out just fine for us though! :)
How do you unwind/decompress at the end of the day?
Depending on my mood, I either do an at home barre class or have a glass of wine or two :p
Are you watching/have you recently watched anything you’d recommend?
Just finished watching Unsolved Mysteries on Netflix - so spooky! A must watch if you're into crime/murder stories.
What’s your favorite thing to do on the weekends?
I’ve been really into vintage furniture shopping lately so I go to different flea markets and try to find treasures!
That makes a lot of sense with your Aquarius Moon since Aquarius is all about uniqueness. So fun to fill your space with one of a kind finds.
What are your favorite DOOZ pieces? Which color(s) do you gravitate towards, even if they’re not signs in your chart.
I’m so into the Zodiac bandana!! But also love the Sweater-T. Favorite colors are dark teal and lime.
BWE – Big Water Energy! We also love Cancer Dark Teal and Pisces Lime.
