Why Your Rising Sign Doesn’t Tell the Whole Story About Your Style.

Why Your Rising Sign Doesn’t Tell the Whole Story About Your Style.

Some astrology experts say that the first impression you get from someone is determined by their rising sign. This is true – through their body language, mannerisms, and communications style.  However, the way a person dresses will not always be communicated through the traits of their rising.
 
 From my experience as a personal stylist over 7years, studying and writing about astrology for about 12 (and now offer personal birth chart readings), I’ve found different truths about how people express their personal style — it’s not wholly or regularly dictated by their rising sign.
 
Why?

  • People don’t relate to their rising sign as much as their Sun or Moon, for example. This may be because their rising sign is overshadowed, or heavily influenced by other planetary positions in their birth chart. One example of this was in my teens when I dressed in ways that reflected my Scorpio moon — frequent use of red and black, and sometimes all black. Those colors speak to a desire for power and excitement, but also black alone can express a desire to not be seen. Scorpio traits include — secretiveness/mysteriousness, desire to have control/boundaries/power. This phase didn’t show my Gemini rising traits at the time.

  • If a person likes to dress artfully and or fashionably, such style often creates a conversation, an opportunity to socialize, at the very least, it gets attention. Which signs like to socialize and or, attract attention? Aries, Gemini, Libra, Scorpio, Leo, Aquarius, Sagittarius and Pisces, all to varying degrees. That doesn’t necessarily mean my client’s style of dress is reflective of their rising sign. Two of my more recent clients were Virgo rising. While they are no-nonsense in their mannerisms and speech, their clothing choices for work and travel – stilettos and vegan leather dress don’t express Virgo’s utilitarian, practical side.
  • What sign Venus is located in, in your birth chart can also influence which styles you gravitate to. Venus not only represents our relationships in our birth chart, but how we view/appreciate art, beauty, and entertain our senses.
  • Cosmic Styling℠ is one of my personal styling services where I take the details of your astrological chart that you most resonate with (this is determined through a short consultation) and blend those with your personal style, lifestyle needs, and wants. This can be done for one outfit, multiple looks, and or for a special occasion. Styling can be as simple as a reference to your sun sign, or more details to include your sun, moon, and rising — and beyond. The planetary influences of your birth and progressed chart can also be blended together.
     
     The result? Your style is perfectly aligned with you and your own unique cosmic expression based on your astrological birth chart, whether you connect with your rising sign or not.
