Sagittarius muse and dance student, Jaylen Brown (AKA Awkward Jay), showcases his effortlessly cool style and choreography in his vibrant dance videos. We can't get enough of how he styles his Zodiac Bandana –turning it into a 90's-inspired dance accessory.
What are your big 3 – Sun, Moon, and Rising signs?
Sagittarius Sun, Capricorn Moon, Libra Rising. My sun in Sagittarius truly shows how independent I am & how willing I am to push boundaries. My Capricorn Moon shows my emotions and how I find security & safety through things I know. I’m a very private individual so that explains a lot. I love how I have a balance with my rising in Libra. I’m inclined towards balance of all forms: aesthetic, romantic, and judgement!
3 adjectives to describe you?
Courageous, ambitious, and charismatic.
Where do you live/where are you from?
What do you do for work? Does your sign play into your career at all?
I’m a dancer that attends a performing arts school where my prime is dance. We mainly train in ballet & modern, so for hip-hop I train at B.funk dance company. The director of our hip hop team is Laura Edwards! Her & the other amazing teachers there really push me as a dancer.
Do you gravitate towards certain signs as friends/collaborators/partners?
Virgos, Leos, Libras, Aries, Scorpios, Aquarians, and Capricorns – it's actually surprising how many Libras and Virgos I associate with!
How, if at all, does astrology impact your daily life? Do you read your horoscope?
I’m always looking at horoscopes on my timeline and I’ve even gotten tarot card readings as well. I think it’s very entertaining to see how astrology can resonate with our daily life!
What does the work day look like for you? Does your zodiac sign help you out?
My work day consists of me filming a dance video or taking pictures in an outfit (majority of the time I’m dancing even outside of my dance training classes)! I can get easily distracted and completely forget about something, so I tend to put reminders in my phone that way I’m always prepared! I wouldn’t say I’m the MOST organized person but I can get myself together. My Libra rising is probably why I’m like this....I’m indecisive. But this is where my Capricorn moon comes into play. Anytime I get distracted by something I always remember it’s something for me to get done and I have no time to play games! My Capricorn moon is VERY serious.
How do you style the Sagittarius Bandana? How do you feel when wearing your sign?
I would definitely give a 90s vibe look with the bandanna and wrap it around my leg! Kinda like it’s a patch!
