After a life time of transformation, Pluto on Jupiter, I am once again faced with a career transition for so many reasons. I should have understood this a lifetime ago, but there are so many things to know and so with the assistance from the light in my dad’s ire it is now obvious that I must start my own business.
I have had a strong interest in astrology, but that is not where I am going. With Saturn on my ascendant, the practical dominates. Ahh, to have the vision of the Jupiter conj Asc that my father has, I cannot even imagine. In any case I am searching for a moniker for the business, with is a vertical style women’s fashion design I am going for here, starting local production with internet sales and a local market here in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
So I would like your permission to use the wonderful alternative name for Cancer that you use. As a Cancerian I have long loathed t he connection between the astrological name and the illness. Would you be OK if I used the name Kataka Designs. I am about to order the first round of labels and felt that I really should check on this with you since yours is the only column that I have ever seen that has taken on this often unspoken issue for the moon children (another miss matched attempt that relegates the very sensitive to the level of a child).
I would be ever so grateful if you would be willing to let me use this as a part of a design name as I have gone on compulsively for months trying on names and the Kataka brand is the only one that comes around again in my running thoughts with any resonance. The design line is a more laden look than anything, but with some ventures into ethnic, more caterpillar than butterfly, but really more into a relaxed look.
Sewing machines are standing by waiting for your permission.
The Kataka Seamstress
Dear Kataka Seamstress,
Hey i love that you’re asking my permission (!) but Kataka is just the old Sanskrit word for the fourth sign. I certainly don’t own it or anything. The original post re this naming issue is here.
I think Kataka is a great name for line of clothing. I also like Tesla Girl, Antikythera Mechanism and Palladium as fashion range names but that’s just me.
Good luck with the venture!
