um, i think this is my new favorite thread because not only do i love fashion but i love astrology! i used to do people's charts and stuff in college
i am sun in cancer, moon in aquarius, rising sign is virgo and venus is leo -- a real mix!
i used to explain the relationship between these aspects are being a little like this: your rising sign is sometimes the "first impression" of your character, or the instinctive lens through which you view or process the world. your sun sign is often your character -- what you value or how you express your dominant energy. your moon sign is often considered your hidden side, your shadow, your unconscious, or the side of yourself that becomes known only by those who are intimate with you. your venus is often your romantic nature, or rather the part of you that craves beauty, art, romance.
i've never thought about fashion and how it relates to astrology before, but i do see aspects of it in my personal style. with virgo being so precise, modest, discerning and often called "picky," i think this is definitely reflected in the fact that i veer towards more refined, unfussy clothes and practical shapes, and prefer a clean, uncluttered look with not many accessories. cancer is a imaginative, emotional, moody sign for whom family and home are important, and i think this is reflected in how i like to wear things that have a bit of coziness to them and that the only jewelry i really wear has sentimental or emotional value for me. (also, i gravitate towards typically cancerian colors: silvery grays, blues, etc.) my "hidden side" is aquarius, which is cerebral and loves unconventionality and revolution -- this is definitely present in my personal life and politics, and in terms of clothes, i think it shows up in how much ann demeulemeester and martin margiela is in my closet! also, i do think of fashion as a political/intellectual subject a lot (what with globalization and such) and i very much try to shop 'ecoconsciously.' and my venus in leo definitely pops up because i do like a tiny bit of flamboyance, particularly in the shape of a shoe (which is almost always black or brown) and i do love glamorous handbags...and my underwear is very atypically bright, patterned and glamtastic
this is such a fun thread!
