Astro-Decor: Octopus Lights – Which Sign?

Avant Garde tentacle lightingSo, which Sun Sign would appreciate the Octopus Tentacle lighting?  And could they be real tentacles? Some taxidermist drinking gin apres midnight during a bad Neptune transit?

It would creep me out bigtime but the Octopus does have some interesting associations:

“An Octopus has eight legs, which invokes the power of eight while propelling to the depths of the subconscious emotions. It is thus a powerful symbol of transformation. In Cretan art, the octopus represents the mystic centre of the universe and the unfolding of creation.” Signposts

 

“The shapeless, tentacled octopus, with its suckers and hideous maw, appears particularly horrendous to the human imagination as a denizon of the Underworld and a symbol all the manifold horrors of Hell. The octopus is a symbol of the Great Mother in her terrible, devouring aspect.”

Ariadne’s Clue: A Guide To The Symbols Of Humankind

Hell, gaping Maws, devouring Mothers, Ancient Crete, mystic transformations – they would certainly provide a strong conversation point, if needed.

Signs We Can Absolutely Rule Out As Having The Octopus Tentacle Lights: Aries, Taurus, Cancer/Kataka, Virgo, Libra, Pisces. Your thoughts?

Aries Sun, Libra Rising….But I LOVE this. It must be the Moon/Pluto in Scorpio combo babbling.

Gem- is it weird that when i saw this i thought of ceviche? mmm…
besides I think it would be like Ariel’s palace in The Little Mermaid…

I think Scorps would like it, for shock value!

I think Scorps because the scorps I know are into Lovecraft and this makes me think of Cthulu.

Not for this little gem – the rooms too crowded and busy and all I can think of when I see them is sliiiimy….and gaping maws..shudder. I do like eating them tho! No water here except neptune in scorp… I thought a water sign straight off but the comments above tell a different story..

Oh darn now I hate that I forgot to put the apostrophe in room’s! (Merc in gem too and 3 outer planets in virgo!)

Leo, with Virgo Rising.
I would love this…. I somehow find it just wonderful. I am always drawn to anything from the sea, (moon in aquarius)

yeah i instantly thought pisces also…all the pisceans i know, despite whatever’s in the rest of their charts, are seriously strange sea aliens at heart. many limbed. slippery. hard to grasp. and would dig the ‘what the…?’ neptunean quality to this sea lair no?

guppy

don’t count pisces out. Yes. My progressed Moon in scorpio says yes too.

didn’t like the red lamps, too scorpionic to me, but the color in walls is absolutely piscean

wouldn’t mind a little bit Johnny Depp in that room, too. Ooh I love those eyes and the gem Puer appearance

I like it. But I don’t want it.

My Aqua artist partner draws octopus as a recurring theme. I didn’t think about it much in terms of if I like or don’t until him.. but yes, I like. .
I feel like I would be comfortable with most people who would also be at home in this room.
Even the chinese lanterns look like jellyfish in this setting. Ace.

Pisces and could not do it. But my ex sagg bought something similar in Italy to hold all his photos of me. They fell off one by one and he let them curl. Messy critter he was.

OMG, i LOVE this. WANT WANT WANT.

but, i am a virgo with a taurus moon and capricorn ascendant. and nearly all the rest is fire.

however, my one water sign is saturn, retrograde, in scorpio. perhaps that is why i am so very attracted to this? no idea. but i do love octopi in all their forms.

Thora, I’m a Virgo with Earth rising – Taurus – and I DIE for this, also.

I also love Octopii. They originally gave us the ink to write all those lists, with, y’know : )

Funnily enough, Saturn in Cancer. In the third house of communications.

Thora? Is that me? I love it, and am also virgo sun, cap asc and toro moon. I got scorp up the wazoo though – mars, venus, neptune. Not a jot of fire unless I look to the asteroids.

Mars in Scorpio here too, but can’t agree with the other Mars-in-Scorp folks here about liking it. The picture is already giving me nightmares. Maybe too harsh for my Libra Moon.

Edgar Allen Poe methinks it was his cognac & cigar room anyways….the tide has turned. My darlingest friends have given me so much inspiration during last 4 days. Strange how i have been looking really forward to this Eclipse as my world has been the dark before the light. How amazing the turn -around since i told my Leo unblooded Sister in Sidders that she HAS to go live in Byron & get outta Bellevue Hill, stop boozing & look after her 3 divine grandchildren coz her daughter needs her Straight.

I keep thinking of Pirates of the Caribbean when I see this…then I keep thinking of Johnny Depp. Then I can’t think of anything else. So by that logic – Gemini?

lmao

I’m thinking Piscean because of the underwater feel of the room itself. Although to me the ceiling needs to be the floor and the octopus lights are then more like sculpture/ornaments. Very acid trippy/otherworldy/watery vibe then. 😀
