For our latest conscious shopping inspiration series we want to highlight your Astrological placements. Did you know that when reading your Horoscope you should actually look at your Rising Sign also called the ascendant? The Rising Sign influences how the current planetary positions can affect you the most. Your Ascendant is your first house and therefore can also give information about how you look physically and what looks best on you when it comes to fashion. Of course your Sun, Moon and Venus as well as other aspects and placements can play into your style and you should always go for what makes you most comfortable. So, this is just a little fun guide on what could possibly look best on you solely based on your Rising Sign – feel free to look at your Sun, Moon andV too, though. Don’t know your birth chart yet? Cafeastrology is good for beginners but ASTRODIENST is my personal favorite and great for more advanced people. Let’s dive into the world of Astrology and fashion for the Rising Signs together!
Today we are focusing on the three Air Signs: Gemini, Libra and Aquarius – yes Aquarius is an Air Sign haha. If your Rising is in one of those signs – or one of your other prominent placements – you are at the right address! Of course this is just a general overview about the style and fashion for Rising Signs and your other placements and experiences will play into your individual style too. For more information on what any of this means check out our article on some astrology basics here.

The sign Gemini is ruled by Mercury. In comparison to Virgos who are also ruled by Mercury Geminis tends to be the more playful side of the coin. Gemini Risings often look way younger than they are either due to their face or their size – and that can go both ways. On top of that, they often also have a very youthful sense of style. If you have a Gemini Rising don’t shy away from colours or more playful accessories. If someone can rock it, it’s 100% you! I can totally picture Gemini Risings in colours that remind me of fairies – pastel yellow, lavender, light pinks, baby blue. Of course bolder colours can look amazing too. Add some cute and playful jewellery or makeup and voilà! Of course not all Gemini Risings have a ‘cute’ style. It’s more about youthfulness and trying out different things!
Geminis definitely like to experiment with their style – no matter if it’s regarding their clothes or even their hairstyle and makeup looks. I would label Geminis as people who do their own thing when it comes to style and don’t necessarily fit into the crowd or all the trends all the time. As Gemini rules the hands it only makes sense that colourful nails and some rings are a must. The trend of different coloured nails was probably invented by a Gem Rising! Gemini Risings can be loud or different when it comes to their style but in the best and most fun way possible. A boring Gemini Rising when it comes to style or personality? Impossible! Some of the celebs with Gemini Risings include Lady Gaga, Amy Winehouse, Kristen Stewart, Will Smith, Mick Jagger and Ashton Kutcher.

Libra is ruled by Venus. Venusians are basically the Goddesses and Gods out of the 12 signs. Represented by the scales and therefore balance and harmony Libras usually always look very balanced or look best when their outfits are. Their sense of style is very harmonious. Truly, Libra Risings are the epitome of fashion and style – you’ll understand what I mean when we get to the celeb part. Not once in my life have I met a Libra Rising that didn’t know how to dress well or always kind of looked good. Combining the perfect garments and knowing what is trendy and looks good on them is probably one of their superpowers. In general, Libras always make me think of runway shows and Vogue.
Celebrities with a Libra Rising include Harry Styles, Leonardo DiCaprio, Beyoncé, Britney Spears, Jennifer Aniston and John Mayer. What do they all have in common? They have quite symmetrical faces and they are all stylish. Libras often have very nice cheekbones and – I gotta say it – bums! Makes sense as Libra rules the butt next to a few other things. Lighter colours, pastels but even some dark colours are beautiful on Libras. While Taurus is more of the raw Venusian beauty, Libra is the more chic and classic side of that – not to be switched up with traditional of course! Libra Risings are great at combining classic looks with trendy elements and cuts – and they always look great doing it.
WHAT CAN LOOK BEST ON YOU
Pearls, luxurious fabrics, pastels, white, pink, black, lace, a mix of trendy and classic garments

Aquarius – the humanitarian of the Zodiac – is traditionally ruled by Saturn and in modern astrology by Uranus. And yes, it is an Air Sign not a Water Sign haha! However, similar to Pisces Aquarius can give off mermaid vibes or even alien vibes – a cliché I know! Purples and blues or anything ethereal can look great on Aquarians but they can pull off many different colours and styles. Earthy colours like brown might not look the greatest on Aqua Risings even if nude tones are totally in right now. Aquarius Risings are far from basic, so the typical more basic look with neutral colours or simple cuts doesn’t always suit them as well as other styles. Trends are something Aquarius Risings don’t necessarily have to follow as they are known to set trends or simply do their own thing.
Do you know that one character in every teen show that hates swimming with the tide? Soooo Aquarius! Therefore, playing with your style could be helpful to find out what looks best on you and what you truly like. Sometimes that might be a trend you didn’t want to participate in at first or thought was stupid the first three weeks! If you need some inspo check out some famous people with Aqua Risings like David Bowie, Christina Aguilera, Audrey Hepburn, Zendaya, Barack Obama and Orlando Bloom to name a few. (Also apparently the Anti-Christ but we’re just gonna act like we’ve never talked about this.) If you have prominent Aqua placements you might be into a very specific style or scene or you just like doing what feels right to you – which is amazing! Do you and neither be afraid of being different nor of fitting in – both are fine as long as you feel comfortable.
WHAT CAN LOOK BEST ON YOU
Blue tones, purples, silver, white, black, even bolder colours, asymmetrical cuts, specific scenes or styles
