Lifestyle column: the zodiac and fashion

The zodiac and fashion: with astrology, it is possible to decipher our behaviour or to get a glimpse of the future. This is a theory which cannot be systematically tested. On the other hand, one may wish to follow an easier path, which puts into practice the principles listed in astrology textbooks. In a way, this is precisely the type of practical exercises that we suggest in this Lifestyle column.

We recommend that you follow our advice with both a light and observing mind. Beyond entertainment, the aim is to understand how each of us behaves in various fields; thus, we can better define and fathom, by deduction, how we have developed our natal predispositions. In addition, why wouldn't we be able to guess the talent(s) which we could harness in the future, according to our astrological profile.

The following information is given for signs in their purest form. Depending on the case, it is advisable that you check your planetary dominant or the sign of your Ascendant, the position, quality and aspects of the significators of the area involved, and if applicable, the position of the planets associated with it. For instance, for family affairs, examine the 4th House and its ruler, as well the Moon; for romance, examine the 5th House and its ruler, as well as Venus, etc.

The large number of books we have read, and more particularly, the experience we have drawn from the study of thousands of charts, urge us to be cautious. However, we thought that it may be interesting to provide a few concrete indications, which will turn out to be accurate, quite often.

It is all or nothing. Either you grab the first clothes at hand, provided they are convenient, or you are a fashion addict. Half-measures are not your cup of tea. It is easy to spot you, owing to your sporty appearance: leather jacket, jeans, and all sorts of sneakers. Trekking, runners, or trendy. Sometimes, you are also tempted by bold and cutting-edge looks. Among the designers whom you find appealing, let's mention Isabel Marant with her fresh and androgynous style.

Your daily outfit often comprises jeans, a T-Shirt, and boots which enable you to adapt yourself to anything. However, you are not a lifelong adolescent. You know how to dress better than everyone, often with carefully-selected and unusual accessories. You are crazy about scarves, shawls, gloves, and sunglasses. You naturally understand what fashion is about, especially street style. Its designer's name is of course Jean-Paul Gaultier, whose original and entertaining shows you regret very much. Besides, his famous striped sweater is one of the basic items which figures prominently in your dressing-room. In addition to pastel colours, you are fond of printed fabrics. You believe that Miu-Miu, more elegant, but as crisp, easily bears comparison with her big sister Prada: slightly outlandish, but above all, incredibly free and puckish. Your models, if needed, would be impish girls such as Chloë Moretz or Miranda Kerr.

It is certain that fashion makes you dream, of course. Suffice it to say that you always enjoy fashion shows' images. You immerse yourself in its atmosphere, and you embark for a cruise. You appreciate the whole collection as if you were an Impressionist. In your daily life, you are sometimes retro or messy, and you prefer comfortable and protective clothes. On the other hand, when you yield to your desires, you gladly enjoy the playful aspects which bring you back to your childhood: you become a doll. You are fond of delicate material, of white and all silvery tints echoing your ruling planet, the Moon.

You have classic and sophisticated tastes, and you consider that fashion offers the means to improve your appearance, without eccentricity and experimentation. With your natural look and your will to be noticed, it is easier to imagine you strolling down the catwalk, or seating in the front row, rather than as a seamstress, even in a prestigious house! You often wait until designers are incensed by specialised magazines before you yield to them. You believe that nothing can outshine Yves Saint Laurent, naturally gifted, solar, whose creations are meant to bring out the beauty of whoever wears them. More recently, it is Karl Lagerfeld who seems to deserve your praise: his opinion and his sophistication are not to be discussed. Or Gucci, for the glamour. At your level, you know very well how to bedeck yourself in shiny, magnificent fabrics, often in fire tones, or even pure gold. Madonna, Jennifer Lopez, or Victoria Beckham, suit your style.

Foolish Virgin, or wise Virgin, fashion interests you; it is not a matter that you consider lightly. Your concern is to be irreproachable. You major daily challenge is to find the outfit suitable for your various activities: serious and tidy to fetch the children from school, impressive executive woman or businessman at the office, and most elegant at cocktail parties. However, you insist on discretion. Neutral tones of grey, beige, or nude appeal to you. Your accessories are usually practical and plain. These last years, several designers engaged in that path : Proenza Schouler or Prada, so emblematic a brand in the field of contemporary classicism that it inspired the title of a saga unfolding in the world of fashion, The Devil Wears Prada. As for muses, you appreciate nice It girls like Alexa Chung, with her college style, her loafers, and her pleated skirts worn with the type of jackets you are fond of.

Ah, fashion, fashion, fashion! Like the title of Alexandra Golovanoff's TV programme, this word contains the excitement which stirs your blood whenever this topic is raised. It is most likely that the first fashionista was born with the Sun in Libra. This is to sum up the main meaning: you earned your "modish expert" degree cum laude. You know the designers, the codes, the muses, the blogs in vogue, and precisely, Vogue magazine is your Bible. You take particular pride in wearing divinely well the musts of the season, subtly mixing new tendencies with good old classics. It is true that you prefer style to innovation, which results in a figure enhanced by a trench coat, and pencil skirts turning you into the essence of femininity, with a Hermès handbag rather than an It bag. If you are a male, you embody the perfect dandy. You always swear by Chanel and Dior, and your personal heroines are Inès de La Fressange or Gwyneth Paltrow.

The zodiac and fashion for Scorpio, Scorpio rising, Pluto dominant, or strong 8th House

Whether a fashion to slave or not, the decision is yours. Let's not forget that you may have a slightly sadomasochist penchant... Which translates into either an immoderate need for clothes, or into obvious contempt. Let's consider the first hypothesis: you always indulge in your passions to the full. You adopt the most sophisticated tendencies, for provocation is what you enjoy tremendously. Yes, we are getting on to it: before he went overboard, John Galliano impressed you at the head of Dior. He succeeded in hoisting the venerable brand to a highly enviable top, a feeling you like to play with. Or you preferred Tom Ford, another author of the porn chic style. Indeed, it must be acknowledged that you believe that fashion must be sexy. Black, laces, leather, blood red or burgundy appeal to you. If you are a male, you can opt straight away for ambiguity, like Bowie in his great time. As for muses, may be you appreciated Kate Moss when she did not care about her personal state during her public appearances. Actually, an It girl must mainly be a bad girl, a little bit like Rihanna.

You quietly pay attention to fashion, because you want to be trendy or to anticipate the forthcoming tendencies. This is part of your need for social recognition, provided that it does not harm your dear freedom. Thus, the style of your attire matches this profile: you often walk in riding boots, with a large cape or an overcoat. You are the Amazon of the city! Whenever it is possible, you like to spice up your classic well-cut clothes with a few exotic touches. Nothing pleases you better than when fashion is influenced by Asia, New Mexico, or Africa. You are fond of embroideries from Morocco, jewellery from Nepal, and silk from the roads you might follow. Fashion is an opportunity to travel, and your favourite designers are Dries Van Noten, or Yves Saint Laurent, the creator of safari jackets, or Ralph Lauren, in a rather sporty chic style. These are your preferences, illustrated by the unforgettable Naomi Campbell and the sparkling Jessica Alba.

If you were asked to use one adjective to define what fashion ought to be, you would probably say “convincing”. You believe that designers must have proven their worth instead of being just... a passing fad, precisely. The reliability and the unique aura of the all-time rigorous Chanel fashion house are trustworthy. The style you are fond of features those characteristics, such as the perfect cut of a lounge suit or the unavoidable woman's suit merely brightened up with a string of pearls. Whatever your gender, you like masculine clothes. Striped jackets, white shirts, Derby shoes, men's watches and hats appeal to you. You are careful not to show bad taste. Therefore, you avoid gaudy colours, wild clothes, or over-trendy cuts. Although you loathe the idea of copying anyone, the women who embody your values may be for instance the sober Carla Bruni and the irreproachable Olivia Palermo.

It is certain that you never go unnoticed, in both the literal and the figurative senses. Although it has been heard repeatedly, fashion is first and foremost a means of expression. And you put no limits to it. Therefore, if in a crowd, you spot a creature with dyed hair wearing a tutu as a skirt, elbow-length gloves, and outrageous make-up, it is likely that she is an Aquarius. Even without going to such extremes, you consider that the function of fashion is more sociological than aesthetic. You like to experiment, and you appreciate designers who are more daring than you. Therefore, we may mention Vivienne Westwood, dubbed the enfant terrible of the fashion industry. Long before anybody else, she made her models parade on the catwalk with headphones on, henna paintings, and golden teeth. Or even, dresses with artificial buttocks! Along the same lines, you find a girl like Cara Delevingne amusing. Unless you think that she is too "classic"!

Because you are a real mermaid or a triton, first and foremost you see fashion as a form of art, and you excel in making it shine. Flowing fabrics, ancient draperies, avalanche of laces, and fancy accessories fit you marvellously well. You often like the colours of the ocean, which means all the gamut of blue, from ultramarine to turquoise. Pearly nuances and ivory white are also fascinating. Since fashion conjures up a world of dreams and idealism, you often put designers on a pedestal. Versace, whose emblem was precisely a jellyfish, attracts you mostly owing to his dresses showcasing absolute femininity, just like Elie Saab. Deep down, there is little girl who yearns to be a princess, or there is a boy who wishes to become a troubadour... For once, fashion offers you the opportunity to live out your fantasies, therefore, go for it. And admire the sensual elegance of Doutzen Kroes.
