Sappho 80

Sappho was a famed poet of ancient Greece, from the isle of Lesbos.

Her poems portray a broad spectrum of the human sexual experience, but she has become best remembered for her championship of female homosexual relations. Her birthplace, Lesbos, gave its name to our term “lesbian”, a female homosexual.

Astrologically, Sappho relates to poetic or artistic ability; graceful self-expression; friendship, especially between members of the same gender; and same-sex attraction, for men as well as women.
