Are You Wearing Your Rising Sign Style?

Filed in ZODIAC FASHION

Does your look match your Rising Sign Style?

Your Rising and/or Ascendant sign really is your best look. Note: Rising Sign and Ascendant are the same thing. (If you do not know it but you do know your time of birth, you can find out via one of my Astral DNA Natal Birth Reports.)

The very Virgo Edith Sitwell once quipped something along the lines of that if you are a Greyhound, why try to look like a Pekingese? Snobbery aside, she was correct. You can avoid psychic discomfort by aligning with your Rising Sign Style, rather than working against it.

Some starting points:

* People often feel inspired to make major image morphs when Outer Planets transit their Rising Sign. A Uranus, Neptune or Pluto style energy crossing your Ascendant can last for up to 18 months. These astral-passages often result in spectacular makeovers.

* The Progressed Ascendant changing sign is an even stronger cue to alter the appearance. It feels more organic and inner-psyche driven than the transit-inspired makeover moment.

* The week with Venus on the Ascendant, Venus on your Moon or your Venus Return is a fantastic time to buy clothes, re-fashion yourself or initiate a new style of beauty regime. (You can find out when that is via one of my Love Warp 9 reports if you are interested). Venus is the Ultimate Stylist.

* Aries Rising thrives in bold, primary colors, particularly red. Taurus Rising is very old-world luxe and tactile. Aquarius Rising is such a Zeitgeist Tripper, that they often find it soothing to wear the same thing, all the time. They are the Rising Sign most likely to adopt a uniform. See the Rising Sign Style series of posts – Style Your Ascendant – for aesthetic inspiration and ideas.

* The Dark Moon in the same sign as your Ascendant is the best time for a wardrobe cull. See the Moon Calendar for when that is.

(I apologize for the lengthly post) I’d actually like to think that my ascendant with my sun sign works helps shape what I like in fashion and beauty. The funny thing about this idea was that I also posted a topic like this in Sasstrology (that place is full of jokers these days), but was shot down by a few people who told me that Venus rules fashion. If that were the case (venus virgo), then all of my closet would be already filled with basics and professional wear. It would be boring and not practical (ironically. There is a… Read more »

TIE DYES — PICSES ACCENDANT????

I’d prefer to think tie-dye would belong to an Aqua asc – an ‘of the people’, DIY, anti-fashion kind of thing. But maybe I’m biased cos I’m Pisces rising and detest tie-dye.

Taurus rising…I love earthy tones, and the clothing has to FEEL good…fit well, and the material not itchy, etc. Love juean, boots, leather belts, good jumpers, good coats…am much happier in winter clothing than summer.

Also I read somewhere where Taurus rising can have an ‘unhealthy obsession with cosmetics, skin care and anti-aging’. This is DEFINITELY me!!!

This is so odd! EVERYTHING I’ve read about my rising sign makes no sense! I supposedly have a rising Virgo.. but I’m messy, not precise, I’m definitely not a perfectionist, I’m extremely loud, very artsy, very assertive, very confident, and I LOVE BEING TRENDY. What is up with that? Everything else always makes so much sense! And I’ve checked for a mistake so many times!
Maybe the lady in the hospital was spacing out when she wrote my birth chart…??? 😛

Leo sun, Leo rising, Sun in 12th house.

Most people say my look is put-together, stylish without trendiness, sometimes classic, sometimes sexy–always feminine.

My question is — what does the house have to do with it?

Scorpio sun, Leo rising…black leather jackets all the time, badass boots, lots of black and red…I think the only way my Leo rising manifests is that a) my hair is always huge bedhead and b) I give a crap about how I dress. Otherwise it’s Scorpio to the hilt.

Aries Rising – Rock on red, and block primaries. Currently enamoured with the purple and blue in EVERY shop window. So very royal I think…. I also have Merc in Sagg, which accounts for my cas wear, jeans, jackets, street runners (ahem – Tigers of COURSE!), all perfect for plane rides anywhere. Love the trekker look (ie Kathmandu, North face style stuff etc, no star trek), but rarely indulge as way too ‘specific’ looking (or try hard in the wrong circumstances). I’d rather go nekked than wear thai fisher anything, but admire people who do, and who manage to look… Read more »

Oh, and if I do not have the right shoes for an outfit, it don’t get worn.

Digging the pic, Mystic. Still growing my hair so that one day I can walk through a wind tunnel and, voila! a voluptous red beehive will emerge like a newly formed 8th wonder. All hail the red beehive! I also wish that I had some of that pisces fashion chutzpah to pull off the silver Dr Who alien number. If I could I too would be strutting my stuff on late afternoon beaches – where else would I be?

Btw does anyone know what part of your chart deals with image/fashion fantasy?

Would have to agree with the comment about black leather being more vulgar than sexy, although some can pull it off. I’ve never really embraced my scorp rising fashion wise. Always thought that black was a bit of a lazy option, though as I get older more and more little black dresses are working their way into my wardrobe. They have to be a bit spesh though. I have a colour-of-the-mo obsession at any given time (Aries merc perhaps?) Right now I lust for deep ochrey mustard. Have even been tempted to dye my hair mustard but fear that it… Read more »

one more question for anyone who cares to shed light.. how does 12th house affect outward appearances / fashionista?
It’s the only place I have Leo and people ALWAYS pick me for Leo, partly because of the huge mane of hair and also for the, well, flash-fash style I have…?

Maybe your birthtime is out and you have some late degree of Leo on the ascendant??

Capricorn Sun, Sagg rising……. Love to wear bright tops with fishermen’s pants and explorer socks in sandals, and have never dyed my hair. 😉

I’m usually wearing or carrying a crystal but it’s out of sight to most. Love natural fibres – particularly silk, perhaps because it flows like water.

Gemini with Leo rising. I’ve been told I have a very specific style: sort of riot grrl tomboy flowery mash-up. I am not trendy. I like to buy ‘pieces’, like a tartan jacket, & slowly build an outfit that way. My hair is epic – whether short or long, it changes colour about every three months (i’ve had everything except natural-looking blonde). I can pull off gold/silver in moderation. I’ve recently decided to make more of an effort with my appearance because it affects my self-esteem so much – but I’m always in a Gemini rush!! So I will be… Read more »

PS I also love green & had green hair for five months, immediately after breaking up with someone – could this be my Psyche in Virgo speaking loudly through my hair that I wanted to meet someone new?
Hair is currently cherry red 😉

PS: I looove cocktail and evening dresses (silk, organza, though no lace) more than anything else. Unfortunately can’t walk around like that all day! 😉

that still is the femme fatale Scorpio Rising. Do you like like smoky eyeliner? Red lipstick?

Smoky eyes, yes! Red lipstick doesn’t suit me, I go for a bit more pinkish. 😀 Ah, yes, I can see that the idea of a femme fatale in an evening gown suits me much better than the biker chick chic.

sounds sexy. The femme fatale in a black dress. Nice- I love both looks.

I have a scorp rising and have recently bought a leather jacket (hooded), which I kinda love. Lovign the greaser look/biket girl that is coming back in… meant for girls that look like guys, and i don’t… I dig structured clothing (yet still comfy… good quailty tailored stuff… digging on the military styled jackets. Like bright, bright and deep colors… with a healthy smattering of black (but and getting more into browns). I looooooove the classic cocktail dress cuts. 1950’s all the way. Big bust and hips, with tiny waist helps. Jeans, fancy street sneakers (tigers) and good cuts on… Read more »

This is great! Taurus rising, Scorpio sun. I have lots of black leather jackets – all kinda structured or fashion-y rather than “sexy”. Used to wear red as well but going off it at the moment. Going for a more androgynous look – (guess I’m one of those girls that look like guys, I’ll swap you) black, silver, grey, lots of leather, chrome, fairly fitted and not fussy or uncomfortable. Super-high platform heels or futuristic-style trainers, or goth boots, but carefully selected so that I can run in all of them. Doing a bit of very dark purple instead of… Read more »

Scorp with Scorp Rising… am not into black leather at all. But maybe old Martian reference to all red hues, my favourite colours? I find black leather too overtly “sexy” (in a not so sexy, slightly vulgar way).
Btw, my Pisces/Virgo Rising sister seems to go more in the Leo direction…

don’t worry too much – just channel the pisces ultra-future / multiverse vibe and that way you can pick up whatever style you like 🙂

Libra sun with Virgo rising Used to be uber-hippie, but now try to avoid all that, it’s not a good look as the years advance. Still, I do like my quirky op-shop finds. I’ve a becoming-extensive collection of 70s cardigans – great shapes, great colours, often pure wool and picked up at ridiculous prices mostly under $20. As for colours it’s black and grey and some beige – great for layering with black – and lots of red, purple, white and hot-pink tops – solid colours you understand, splashy patterns set my teeth on edge – worn with the aforementioned… Read more »

Oh and I know this is a tad off topic – but do you guys reckon a guy goes more for the Rising/Moon and maybe Mars of a woman than her actual sun? I’ve found that to be quite prominent.

prowln, I think it depends on the blokes own astro. From my experience some have resonated to my sagg stuff and love to discuss all topics and explore the convoluted ramblings of my mind while others like my Cap side and treat me like a lady. Alpha Tauri is the first to seem to respond to all. My neptune stuff freaks some blokes.

hehe chesh I know the feeling … I asked because I find men often are drawn to my Airy/Fire personna and then discover that I really am more Cancerian (particularly in relationships due to Venus there too) and wonder where the other chick went … though that being said I’ve never quite been the demure babymaking, stuffer of money under my pillow that Linda Goodman used to crap on about. It’s great that Alpha Tauri responds to your multifaceted self though – that’s awesome and really the best kind of relationship in my opinion. It’s horrible to be boxed and… Read more »

Just googled for us Virgo Cat (and any other Libra risings) and most obvious classic bombshell was Marilyn Monroe.
I like the modern -day version in Scarlett Johansenn, she’s a foxy bombshell if there ever was one, manages to look sexy in cut off shorts and sandals.

The Double Bull ex once commented that whilst I rarely wear anything that’s currently in fashion, whatever outfits I put together end up looking fashionable but with an interesting twist. Maybe that’s cause of Gem Asc natally trining Uranus in Libra? But yep I definitely vibe Gemini on first impression and have a lot of Gem traits such as conceptual thinking, brainstorming maniac, love wordplay, witty repartee and writing. I don’t look good or feel comfortable in anything too vintage or structured – seem to need a vaguely flowing, layered look.

Oh, I love this exercise. Virgo rising in first house / Saturn in First House. I ALWAYS dress to a concept and I do thoroughly thought out ‘seasons’ of style. Usually these seasons relate to a particular political / zeitgeist commentary I am trying to make at the time. I’m currently in ‘Flowy and Showy’ for autumn, it’s tight fitting, muscle hugging, with drapey things overlaid… Before that was ‘Modern Medieval’, before that was ‘Flower Cowboy’ and before that was ‘Dark Mystic’ and before that ‘Urban Pirate’ – but that was more to do with having to wear an eye-patch… Read more »

ps – just noticed my tautology of ‘virgo rising’ and ‘in first house’. Virgo rising finds that embarrassing.

I have Taurus rising and think that the comment about texture and old world luxe is spot on. I can remember being entranced with my great aunt’s linen blouses from the 40’s as a preteen. For the most part I’m comfortable in classic lines …they just suit my shape. I wear scarves a lot.

I do tend to think of dressing as a series of dress ups though…so the Leo mentality is still lurking about…I tend to wear minimal makeup and jewellery though.

Love this one Mystic! I was only pondering over the weekend what impact our rising signs have on us?? Am Libra Rising. In my early 20s I think my aqua Sun influened my fashion style. Relaxed, kooky, hippy and slighty unique though not too OTT. But now, in my early thirties am just realising that yes, it is the more classic styles – with a little twist, that suit me best! Grey, black black and black, white…one of my fave colours is slate blue/grey. Some days I still splash a bit of watermelon in there to mix it up. The… Read more »

Classic bombshell Libra rising?
1. Certainly a look I could cultivate. Oui.
2. What does that look like exactly? Thought appreciated.

Leonine Librarian
Leonine Librarian

virgo cat when I think classic bombshell, I think of a lot of those 50’s stars, Audrey Hepburn was the classy version, Marilyn Monroe, more well just more…and Sophia Loren had an earthier appeal, but always looked gorgeous. Maybe at a stretch Katherine Hepburn was a bombshell too, just an intellectually witty one with lashings of style.

I don’t know much about Libra rising wardrobe choices – my hairy scary lezzo sister (pisces sun) has 0 Libby rising (with Pluto conjunct) and she is a wardrobe and footwear disaster (Sis if you’re reading this I’m sorry but you know its true – if it were not for having to wear suits to work you’d wear cargo shirts and a singlet every day, never ever shave your legs and never get a hair cut!). but I have noticed (in my curiousity regarding all things Libran) that Libra rising people have lovely symetrical features and gorgeous teeth.

my Cap sister had Libra rising and dressed in a floaty fem pastels more into dresses and skirts than pants. She didn’t look herself in jeans but wore them outdoorsy. She would wear tailored jackets but with dresses never matching pants or skirts and in pale colours. If she wore pants they were loose, wide legged and waisted with girly tops, floaty sleeves, big collars…

My Aries rising manifests itself in lots of red shoes (at least 10 pairs covering the range from sneakers, sandals, Campers, dizzying stilettos and work shoes, including plenty of red patent leather) and quite a few big red accessories, particularly necklaces.

I’m notorious for the red shoe thing. My (male) secretary came dashing into my office a couple of weeks ago to alert me when the Myer windows began a display of different shoe designers’ interpretations of Dorothy’s ruby slippers.

Leo rising…
I do have some majorly blonde curly hair, but don’t really wear any jewellery- i don’t even have my ears pierced.

Did receive compliment recently that I always am dressed in very complete outfits, like a definite style of clothes. I think I am rather closer to my Virgoan sun at heart, never too many colours at once or overwhelming prints.

But now I think about it, I do always ‘dress’, which is rather Leonine, and rather Venusian (which is 1 degree from my asc). Even if its casual, its definitely a casual ‘outfit’.

I absolutely ADORE the leo way of dressing – so polished and complete! I have Leo girlfriend who is so carefully turn-out that I can never imagine her doing anything rash or uncouth. So feminine and glam but cultured at the same time. I always think of her as kind of film-noir. although I have another Leo friend who while very ‘dressed’ is prone to big earrings and Chanel logos all over, as well as teetering on high heels all the time while calling everyone ‘darling’ and starting every sentence with ‘you know what…?’. A lovely woman, but kind of… Read more »

aw, beige, brown and yellow are beautiful! Venus (earth tones) and Mercury (orange, yellow)… I especially love that mustardy greeny-yellow, but can’t wear it on account of having the wrong colouring. I will one day have a fab sofa or something in it.

my fave thing to wear at the mo is a beige/tan cashmere (max mara) twin set – I feel very glam and am even tempted to wear pearls (shudder) except that I never EVER wear jewellery except for my Rolex watch.

I’m with you TA, as my hair is auburn and with pale colouring I wear lots of neutral/earth tones. I’m a Cap with Sagg rising with Venus conj and first house Sun. Friends tell me my wardrobe is a costume department because I dress to suit the occasion and have the ability to change my look completely like a chameleon. Sagg rising is supposed to make one tall and leggy but I’m tiny. The only Sagg attribute is that I hate having to mess with my hair and keep it clean and simple. I can wear manish tailored and frothy… Read more »

I completely agree with Dior – a pink garment says ‘I love you’. I have a lovely Allanah Hill pink lace cardi which I wore a lot when prego with the dung bug. I’ve only just started wearing colours again, after a long black period (lots of SAturn transits). I bought myself a green argyle sweater – very preppy and gemini now I come to think of it 🙂

I’m Sag rising, too with an Aqua sun, so you KNOW I have clothes in every color, and I also dress to fit my mood. One of my favorite shopping hacks is to pick something totally ugly that only I can pull off – hahaha

I must admit one of my favorite/best looks is very equestrian – sweater or turtleneck, skinny jeans, boots, hair in a braid.

Ever since I started dating a Sag with Taurus rising I have found myself wearing more athletic clothing and sneakers.

Fish rising with Saturn conj asc. Neptune in Scorp in 9th and Jupiter in Taurus in 3rd. Black, black, navy, deep shades of grey, denim, natural fabrics next to my skin. Like the occasional splash of red but mostly simple understated black streamlined quality. Minimal silver earrings, one diamond ring and quality watch. In summer can do all white. Shoes have to be comfortable.

I’m a Pisces with Leo rising but with lots of Pisces in my planets, (Venus, Mars, Jupiter and True Node). Even though I speak Italian, I am not into bling, but have always had heaps of hair, and like only quality shoes, fine fabrics and fine knits. I wear Max Mara suits when I have to and jeans and jackets. I am typically Pisces in an artistic sense as I draw and make ornamental medieval potagers, but I am often mistaken by those evolved enough to know, as a Virgo. I love green in all her graces.

also a virgo rising.
work from home so get to wear the same jeans, jumpers and ugg boots for days (so defn not embodying any gemini trendiness) – but definitely have a layered complementary colour thing going on – particularly black and blue. I’m quite fond of lots of black with shoes, layered singlet, earrings and scarf in shades of blue, red, or purple.
I have a pisces moon and pisces descendant – expressing my water craving through all that blue perhaps?

Virgo rising.
Noooooooo. I’m a scruff. Well, OK, when I have to scrub up I do go for layers in carefully co-ordinated/complimentary colours. Blue and black together a complete no no, also white socks. And no more than 3 shades of the same colour. Jewel necks because they suit me best. Trouser legs have to reach my shoes – not half mast. White or cream top dillemmas have made me late for meetings. Oh, rather virgoan then ….

I am Kataka rising, & do look much better in ’50s style clothing – sets off my waist/hip ratio nicely, works the cleavage etc. I can do jeans & boots quite happily though – have not mastered the ’50s obsessive grooming, even in my 4th decade 🙂

gemini rising… this question not so good for my self-esteem after reading about Delia Antwerp Aars fashion exploits, LOL.

no really, in terms of embodying my rising sign, I guess not – have been attempting to evolve to my progressed ascendant anyway. I mean, being a Venus girl I LOVE clothes anyway – but tend toward classics mixed in with the odd fashion item – but I LIVE in jeans and cashmere cardigans with ballet flats at the moment…

having said that when I was younger I worked in fashion and definitely embodied Gemini trendiness.
