Astro-Beauty: Do U Give A Shit Re Shoes & Y?

Jourdan Dunn on bike

Shoe love & the foot fetish thing is so often ascribed to Pisces – but I have loads of stuff in Pisces and I am SO immune to shoe-fetish or even the usual tastes of wimmyn. Seriously, my fashionista friends FREAK at me – the thing is that MY beauty dollar goes to skincare & scent – whereas theirs is sent toward shoes and handbags. They have stuff on them that will send peeps shrieking across a room to gush – I don’t even dare delineate the fash-details here as my fashionista friends ARE Virgo or they have STRONG Virgo and they’d go me for not getting a fashion detail right.

Anyway, i have sports sneakers, birkies, fit-flops and some beautiful Max Mara espradrilles. That’s IT. And i don’t care. I know i need to get boots & that Uggs are non-Vegan + unable to be worn to theatre nights so there is a vague Winter dilemma there BUT, I live in Sydney and a LOT of peeps here feel claustro in closed-toe shoes. It’s not so much about the reality of having one’s toes shut-in for a season when it is never even that cold -it’s the idea that one should not be cramped.

I also – and i think this is v.Aquarian + being raised on homeopathy etc and  part-German but i think that the idea of being aligned or exercised whilst you walk is so fab. And I walk a LOT being also eco and not into driving. The shoe i madly want but keep putting off is the Masai Barefoot Thingie…my other shoe goal is to have some crazy pair of bedroom-only stilettoes, for fun.

Thoughts? And how can i have all this stuff in Pisces yet be the least shoe-heavy lady i KNOW?  And do you give a shit re shoes? I am SO objective re this…my female friends are divided into the shoe fanatic fashionistas and the ones who just so do-not-care…I am thinking that it’s VIRGO and CANCER + CAPRICORN & TAURUS – ie; all the Earths + Cancer who do it the most hardcoare.   THOUGHTS – Please…

Just a Taurus male here who would like to say that you ladies showing off your tootsies in exciting footwear are what makes the world go ’round. Love you gals…and yes, I carry around massage oil just in case a lovely gal needs those tired feet massaged (or just needs to be worshipped like a goddess). I’ll say this…as a man, when you see a woman in sexy shoes it speaks volumes about her confidence and how well she cares for the rest of her body. I argue though that while I LOVE pretty feet on a woman, it’s not… Read more »

I’m so much of a Cancer that I’m almost a caricature, and I’m crazy about shoes. My most shoe-obsessed friend is also a Pisces, and yes, super-typical of her sign. One of my other Piscean acquaintances, however, is so anti-fashion in that way. Maybe it’s either a really-there or really-not thing?

Cancer sun & rising, Virgo moon – and shoes? Thorny issue! I probably have the most delicate feet in the country: at the first sign of my actually walking anywhere in anything other than bare feet, I get huge blisters that scar for years afterwards. So shoes HAVE to be comfortable, first and foremost. They also have to be versatile, because shoe shopping being such a pain due to my fussy feet, I only own about 3 pairs that I’ll actually wear (boots, flats, and sandals). Add to that the fact that I am unbelievably fussy about what I will… Read more »

Sun taurus, moon cancer, ascendant virgo. Nope, not into shoes. Didn’t wear any until I started school. Plain leather lace ups or ballet flats. Big, wide feet may have something to do with availability. Hate heels. Go for colours – blue or bright jade for preference. Have just bought first pair of red shoes, but they don’t fit properly so will have to go back. Comfort is all. Walk everywhere in fake crocs. Bare feet is best.

Pisces, Gemini moon, ascendant in Cancer, and I am totally, totally obsessed with shoes. I go shoe shopping -all the time-, although to clarify, I go shoe -window- shopping all the time. Shoe shopping in itself is an investment: I won’t buy it until I’m sure it will bury itself seamlessly into my wardrobe, reflects some part of my style, is of good quality, and is somewhere within my price range. Needless to say, that doesn’t happen very often. Surprisingly I’ve noticed that all the shoes that are on constant rotation are 1) black 2) leather and 3) lace-up. I… Read more »

I was born on a Taurean Gemini cusp, and if money allowed I would probably buy a lot more shoes than I already have. BUT having size 9 feet and not being confident in heels means I have about 8 pairs of shoes, all amazing gorgeous but SNEAKERS!!!!! Does this count? I have one pair of kitten heels which are bedroom-only because they hurt so much… and a friend who lends me shoes from time to time with the same size feet as me, she has a gorgeous shoe collection. Jealous, but wouldn’t ever spend that much on shoes. Clothes… Read more »

My moon is in Cancer and it definately dictates my style! I love shoes, when I was younger I wasn’t so into them. But now that I’m more feminine I am obsessed! Most virgos I meet also have a deep love for shoes, so I’d say you may be on to something.

I have so many shoes it’s ridiculous. What’s so sad is, I don’t even wear half of them, yet I keep buying more! If it is a beautiful shoe (boot, heel, flip-flop, etc…. I don’t care) I have to have it.

I am a Libra (with a Taurus rising, Libra Moon. Needless to say, I am one indulgent mofo) so it’s impossible for me to make a decision what pair to wear, so most days I end up just saying ‘eff it and wearing the same pair all the time. They sure are pretty to look at though 🙂

Taurus (sun and moon) with Virgo rising and a growing shoe collection (though I did point out that I haven’t bought a pair in months when teased just yesterday). I’ve got around 75 pairs and I do wear most of them within a year, some more than others, and most of them with some sort of heel. I’ve always understood Taurus to be tactile and indulgent and that’s what my shoes are to me. But indulgence only goes so far: the vast majority of my shoes were purchased at outlet prices or on sale, I almost never pay retail, and… Read more »

IF i was to ever wear heels they would be of the horny librarian variety, not sure if that conveys the image i would like it to….. I’m thinking high heeled mary jane style but sexy?????

Nope. not at all. I like shoes but I don’t spend much on them and I don’t do expensive brands. I have two pairs of wittner boots and some flats and a couple of pairs of heels that are bought for comfort not style. I like converse sneakers. I like volleys too.

Back when i was younger I went for three years pretty much only wearing my doc boots.

Maybe I’m jealous because I can’t wear heels due to feet/knee probs & pain. Even since before the problems, though, I’ve been an oft-repudiator (inconsistently) of “non-functional” shoes.

Am intrigued by the shoe love being linked to astrology. I’m an Aries (just born on the cusp of Taurus) with venus in Pisces and Cap rising. My mother has called me “Mrs Markos” on a number of occasions and yet my shoe love probably comes from her. It dates back to early childhood when my favourite thing was rummaging through her trunk full of old stilletos and Italian 1960’s slingbacks and clomping around the house in them. As an adult I have spent a disproportionate amount of my income on footwear. Being tall with wide feet and a walker… Read more »

The evolution for me has been the collection of work/play shoes. I am a bit of a Euro purist, and find spanish shoes/boots the best, however have several pairs of italian shoes. I prefer to spend on quality as I know they will last, and they look fabulous. I refuse to buy cheap ad nasty!!!!!!!!!

Sadge-with-Pisces-rising here. Have quite a few shoes and while it’s important they look good, I do eschew most fashion for comfort – eg, never pointy toes, always square toed, no high heels. Have one pair of boots that are high-heeled (for me) and am thinking of replacing them because I just don’t feel quite comfortable in them. But have two Sadge friends who are total shoe groupies. One Aquarius rising, the other unknown.

Oh, I go barefoot as much as poss and only wear ‘nice’ shoes when going to work or ‘nice’ event. Otherwise bare feet, Skechers or Teva sandals.

Have “scrawny” foot so shoe shopping is up there with jeans and bikinis for me. Also, am quite tall so heels push me into the Big Bird zone.

Yes i love the idea of shoes and bags and sometimes get excited and go and buy, but then wear the same bag day in day out until it virtually falls apart, and really it’s thongs all summer and sneakers all winter, cos yes I like to walk fast and I like being comfortable, so lovely shoes sit in cupboard and I just can’t be bothered to put them on and deal with any discomfort… My teenage daughter on other hand seems to be shoe-obsessed already – spent all her hard-earned money on a 3rd pair of very high black… Read more »

Cancer sun, 2nd house in pisces….had a love affair with shoes all my life. It began with my new ‘lemon”coloured sandals when I was four , walking around crashing into things because I couldn’t stop staring at their hypnotic beauty ..LOL! I have aqua asc so most of the time I’m relaxed casual. Like to wear jeans/ shorts/ t-shirts and dunlop volleys or pretty flat sandals ( leather only please) or barefoot. Comfort comes first!!! ( My feet “burn” when in enclosed shoes for a long time.) I do love to have the opportunity to glam up though and recently… Read more »

I didn’t wear shoes much until high school, and even since as soon as i get home, shoes off. Living in semi-rural, slightly hippie-type setting helped, of course. Have Sun and 3 other planets in Cap, Pisces ascendent and Mars, and Virgo south node and Pluto – love functional shoes like boots, slip-ons, and always understated with touch of funky. I seem to like to have shoes for different functions (walking, kayaking, outdoor parties) and different looks (business, casual, etc), so I do have quite a few pairs, but I tend to focus on one pair of “pluggers” for day… Read more »

I have adored shoes since I was a little girl, but I stopped wearing leather in 2002 & I always have trouble walking in heels.

That rules out lots of shoe purchases, though I am partial to spiky heeled bedroom shoes. I like the sequined fitflops, & was overjoyed when I found melissa.com.au – shoes that are femme-y AND vegan are hard to find. Of course PVC is enviro-evil, but I just can’t hack those recycled hemp numbers.

Most days in winter I wear boots (bought from VeganWares in Melb, or mail-ordered from the US) or knock-off converse sneakers.

Ha! Taurus sun and Merc, with Virgo Saturn, Jupiter and Mars. Total shoe fetish, own about 20 or so pairs BUT once I fixate on a pair I wear them to death, literally. OR I go an buy the several pairs of the same shoe. I love buying totally beautiful and impractical shoes but am hard pressed to ever find occasion to wear them. Must move to Paris, or New York or something.

But this is very very very strange. I was reading the temperate post below and thinking how i loved it – it felt so fashionable and right to me and my first thought was to give away my fashion stilettos and get some reflexology. There are many fashion icons who do not trot about in these ridiculous shoes – India Hicks. Carla Bruni. Christy Turlington. Yoga… Read more »

My Leo sister is shoe-obsessed but in the typical flashy, decadent, self-indulgent Leo way – it’s not a fetishist thing (I don’t think…).

Me (Gemini), I am more in the “so do-not-care” category.

Oh I’m so with you, aquaquaqua. I love the look of pretty high shoes. So sexy and shiny with buckles and pointy bits, etc. BUT, I rarely wear them due to my fast walk/ walk for fitness/ walk to get somewhere. I don’t have the time nor inclination to teeter. I do have a pair of red strappy polka dotted towering heels that come out at Xmas. Everyone loves them. LOVES them. Strangers in the street stop and gush. Even the burly men. But I get a sore back and, as a pragmatist, really can’t wait to get back into… Read more »

I am a “multiple conjunct pisces”…..as pisces as you can get? For me, it’s definitely a feet thing, not a shoe thing. The piscean foot knows and can remember every rebirth extending back to beginningless time. Piscean feet are tired. Bare feet please. At best- bare feet, massage oil, a hint of clove and orange and warmth. As for the shoe and bag people? Sagg’s (I shop therefore I hunt) and Leo (the hair, the shoes, the baggage, the package).

I like that! Piscean feet are tired. Will try to remember that when confronted by my mulitple Piscean sister (who has Libra rising for Goddess sake!) and her rather difficult (for me) shoe preferences (or her rather difficult – for me – sexuality choices too, for that matter). I have Pisces on the MC and NOrth NOde in the last minutes of Pisces- but I for one CANNOT go barefoot. Not even in my own home. I get out of bed and my feet go straight into my sweet little Peter Alexander ballet slippers or my luxe Ugh boots (yes… Read more »

I do agree with the man comment. I CANNOT date a guy with shitty shoes. Or a shitty watch. I thought it might be a Cap thing but maybe an Earth sign thing?

stress princess maybe it IS an earth sign thing – I look at people’s shoes as an indicator of how they ‘walk through life’. I can’t take a man seriously who doesn’t invest in good shoes, who hasn’t the inclination to care for his shoes or who wears ‘fad’ shoes (platforms, pointy toes etc – ick!).

TA, I solidly stand behind not wanting to date anyone with crappy shoes. To me it’s always been about grounding and solidity, it is THE part of the outfit that receives the most beating hence I cannot stand it when peeps are cheap with their feet. Of course as Kataka with Virgo Rising, why yes, I OWN shoes. Many are stiletto and yes, I do use them every week. It will probably eff up my spine, but I was raised by a mother who didn’t hang hers up till she was 70! It was only then that she succumbed to… Read more »

FA you are too lovely to say it but I am too crude and offensive not to say it so here goes,
there are global movements against crocs. I’ve heard the UN has established an Intergovernmental Panel to Clear Crocs (IPCC) due to their impact on the visual amenity of the Universe – the eye pollution impacts are is worse than deforestation, open-cut mining and plastic bags all together. G20 riots? nothing compared to what’s coming to crocs.

ahhhh i feel GOOD now… who needs comfy shoes when you can just bitch about them and feel great?

I am a multiple pisces with Leo rising, so lots of thick hair and many, many, many pairs of shoes, all worn, loved and re-soled. Mainly elegant heels, due to relevant suited job. It’s always a talking point and my younger colleagues always ask if I ever dare to ‘let them go’ (God forbid) please send them their way.
A well-made shoe is a work of art that deserves to be loved, cleaned and admired. I’m with you, TA !!!

Little fish, back before I wore scrubs to work and wore dress clothes, I had a little black pair of dressy sling back Italian shoes with a low heel. How I loved those shoes and got them re”souled” and patched up and put back together until they could just not take any more. I loved wearing them without hose but with tanned legs and a certain black and white polk a dot chiffon type skirt… My Mom tells the story of a pair of black patent Mary Janes that I loved when about five years old. She would throw them… Read more »

Oh TA I HATE when favourite shoes die. That’s why I buy 2 pairs so I have back up. I LOVE a great pair of heels, am finally succumbing to wearing flats to the station & then I change into my heels for work. I am really not into flat shoes, make me feel like a kid. If I’m going to work or out I have to wear heels. I have so many gorgeous pairs. I ask myself what shoe I want to wear & then my outfit falls into place. 1st day of Spring is the day my gorgeous… Read more »

LL I love that – shoes that come out to play! Do you, like me, visit shoes in the shops?? I often do that – espesh if its a pair I’m besotted with but won’t let myself buy them. I’ll visit and sigh and put them back on the shelf with a promise to come back and take them home one day if I can think of a good reason why I need them. lol.

I haven’t found the right outfit for her debut…it’s been 2 years, am thinking it’s time to inspect my wardrobe for possibilities. My most MAJOR hassle with shoes is – being stuck in satin/suede/any other ‘fabric’ shoe & it rains. I have back up shoes in my car & at work & I HAVE been that tragic person that… Read more »

Bags ditto. But I’m totally crazy about accessories though – scarves, things for hair. Maybe thats leo rising-conjt venus in leo… Actually today had terrible pains in my feet and calves, and my colleague suggested I should start wearing a small heel, because my shoes are all too flat. I was amazed but she seemed to know all the shoes I wear. Admittedly theres… Read more »
