Since I am celebrating my birthday today and being a spring baby, I’ve decided to celebrate all things spring, except of course, all of nature’s sperm in the air that is causing me all manner of nasal and laryngeal irritations. Spring speaks of all things new, passion, love, longer days and shorter nights. It is just a fun season after a long, cold, dark winter.
Now, of course, I was inspired to do this series by my current obsession with Neil Degrasse Tyson and his Cosmos and Star Talk shows. I have always been somewhat of a cosmic geek mixed with, the not so scientifically proven, astrology. I will begin this series with Spring babies, Aries (like myself), Taurus, and Gemini and end with the winter babies, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces. So let’s get to it shall we?
ATTRIBUTES: INDEPENDENT, IMPATIENT, ACTIVE, AMBITIOUS, LOYAL
PHRASE: ‘I AM’
COLOR: SCARLET RED (for action) AND WHITE (for purity)
Red is the color of action and it definitely makes the ram leap into it. It is a power color, a color of authority, a color of war. Being ruled by the god of war Mars, an Aries seeks to conquer the world through sheer force of will. In which case, Aries loves wearing clothes that have a military edge to it. The pieces must be fashionable and on trend, but they also must be practical and functional in case of an altercation.
Taureans are ruled by the goddess of love, fertility, and beauty, Venus. Taureans are the toddlers of the zodiac. They wish to experience the world through touch, through beauty. They wish to possess it, make it theirs. In this stage, Taureans are learning about them selves finding their voices, allowing seeds to be planted. They are fertile. Therefore, Taureans seek beauty, they are understanding life in color, so flowy luxurious clothes are key to this sign, and green is definitely their color.
ATTRIBUTES: COMMUNICATION, INDECISION, INTELLIGENT, CHANGEABLE, INQUISITIVE
PHRASE: ‘I THINK’
COLOR: YELLOW (for newness and intellect)
Geminis are the teenagers of the zodiac. They are the thinkers, the intellectuals. They are ruled by the light-footed god of communication, Mercury. Just as Mercury is the fastest moving planet and the god Mercury is swift because of the wings on his feet, Geminis crave the newness of everything, the new experience. Its not that they are two faced as they’ve been coined, its more that they are solidifying their personality, trying to understand what works. Their color is yellow. It is the color of all things new and the color of the intellectual. In fact, as we get older it is one of the first colors that we no longer see. For Geminis, any silhouette goes. Remember, they are trying to figure out what suits them. So flowy dresses and structured looks, mini and knee length skirts. These are perfect for the ever changing Gemini.
