Lion Queenly

Filed in Zodiac Fashion, Leo

Chanel 2011 Fashion Parade Lion DetailSo I always knew Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel was Leo (Sun and Venus) but i did not realize QUITE how passionately she identified with her Sun Sign until just recently.

She collected lion statues and her apartment was full of them, her favorite being one with the lion playing with a pearl. A gigantic replica of it was used in the 2010 “Under The Lion” show, above.

Five was her fave number – and name of her perfume – because Leo is the 5th sign of the Zodiac.

“August 19th is my Birthday, born under the sign of Leo. ย I am a Leo, and like a lion I use my claws to prevent people from doing me harm. ย But believe me I suffer more from scratching than being scratched.”

Her gravestone has five lions heads on it:

Coco Chanel Grave mafic lion symbols“It’s probably not by chance that i’m alone. I was born a Leo, astrologers know what that means. It would be very hard for a man to live with me, unless he’s terribly strong.ย  And if he’s stronger than i, I’m the one who can’t live with him….I’m neither smart nor stupid but i don’t think i’m a run of the mill person. Ive been in business without being a businesswoman,

 

…I’ve loved without being a woman made only for love. The two men i’ve loved. I think, will remember me on earth or in heaven, because men always remember a woman who caused them concern and uneasiness. I’ve done my best, in regard to people and to life, without precepts but with a taste for justice.”

I reckon one of my cats is a Leo, the other a Scorp. They both seem to embody the traits of each sign to a tee. Kitty is beautiful … I mean she’s just a breathtakingly gorgeous looking cat. She’s loyal, fixated on food and cuddles when SHE’S in the mood. Mizzy is a loner, likes to do her own thing, highly sensitive and takes a looooooooong time to get over shit that has pissed her off. So back to Coco … well I resonate with what TLS had to say. Women in those days who worked their way up… Read more »

Thanks Andromeda – especially as I see you don’t like Chanel ๐Ÿ˜‰ I am Pisces Rising. Born in Brisbane at 18.30. I’ve never had my chart read properly or my Chinese Astro. It’s funny, I just remembered that last night I dreamed I was having my cards read. I’d forgotten that until just now. Synchronicity.

I can’t do it this sec as I am putting my babes abed. Go to astro.com and put your details in there. It is a brilliant site. You can compare your chart with Coco Chanel’s chart there by putting her details in too in the partner section. I don’t dislike her, I don’t know Coco very well.. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Good luck anon.

I only found out that I was born the same day (19/08/1980) as Coco Chanel when I started working for the Chanel company. It was surreal to find so many similarities with her personality, her idiosyncrasies, her tastes – even her apartment with its paired animals, tarot cards, chandeliers and mirrors. Everything and everyone she loved had a story and became the great leit motifs of her life and work, beautiful and tragic motifs – the camellias, the stars, the items of clothing borrowed from lovers. I can’t even begin to explain what I mean, or how I feel about… Read more »

Know your birthtime and town of birth? Don’t see why you shouldn’t feel an affinity with Chanel given she shares your day sign and number. In Chinese Astro she is a Water Sheep and you are a Metal Monkey though, so quite different!

Could be in a woman like her, her need to ‘dominate’ may have been misunderstood.
(or she may have been exactly like that, who knows, but…)

Maybe she was just trying to transcend her roots and lack of personal power, being abandoned by her dad. Have a feeling it was honourable adversaries and other plucky people she wanted around. People either fell short of the climb, wanted to dominate HER, fell away or just weren’t interested in transcending anything and a Coco Chanel soul mate may not have been around much, on their own journey quest somewhere.

Andromeda

Love that she evolved her creativity and material side, not such a fan of her inner self. Always felt a bitter taste at the name and personage of Chanel. Above comments confirm why. Her astro interest seems to provide symbolic language proving further her need to dominate. I mean I like lions ‘n’ all but geez.
Her take on love also shows a general lack of it imo. Yet Leo rules the Heart? She does remind me of the Tarot card Strength though. I hope that she was a better woman than her detractors paint her to be.

Oooh just what i need, some Leo inspiration, thank you! I don’t like what the accuntants have done to some of the frag formulations but i love chanel. she was accused of being a whore and a nazi collaborator, quite standard for powerful women in that day and age. People resented such a strong statement of womanly luxury, accomplishment and independence from a “peasant.” she had jewish lovers,i have read all her biographies – so prob not antisemetic AND may have had a nazi lover which is a hideous thought obviously but who can judge what people do in times… Read more »

Your words have stuck with me all day TLS and made me smile in memory of all the leos I’ve ever known and how staunchly loyal and adept at overlooking inconvenient details re your actions or persona they can be. A leo friend is a friend for life. Your unwavering loyalty to fashion and its icons is lovely too – is your venus in leo – or capricorn? I so agree with you that war makes people choose routes they may not have travelled otherwise but Coco’s no Nancy Wake ๐Ÿ˜‰

My film recommendation is Coco et Igor, about her affair with Igor Stravinsky. Certainly psychologically fascinant. She housed Stravinsky and wife, who comes across as salt-of-the-earth Russian peasant, with their children, in her country apartment and proceeded to have an affair with him in the presence of the entire family. Such ownership! The set is amazing. The actor more French-womanly in her sexual maturity, than the Hollywood-exoticised-cute Tautou. I don’t know that Chanel came across as likeable to me, but i could not tear my eyes away and her character sang with strength and passion. TLS, if you love Chanel/Leo… Read more »

Didn’t know a thing about her astro and only a smidge of her personality which I can relate to in some respects or at least appreciate.

I don’t have anything in Leo. Even when you include the asteroids. It’s the only sign that is completely empty. It’s my 9th.

I loved how ‘Coco’ had an exquisite talent and taste and realised it, how she offered women a completely new way of looking not only beautiful, but modern and ‘with it’, through genius/ simple, yet sophisticated, styling. I think she offered a whole new ‘dignity’ in women’s fashion. Her clothes (the few i’ve seen photos of), in my ideas: allowed women to not only ‘look the part’ in business alongside men, but gave women that extra artful/mysterious/beautiful edge, that transcended way beyond just the image of ‘formality’ as seen in men’s business suits, and gave women a powerful yet unquantifiable… Read more »

Having Leo ascendant, Moon, Venus and Mars all in Leo ( Moon in 12th, Mars at very end of 12th, Venus in 1st house), I can entirely appreciate Coco’s sentiments. I find too that men have been intimidated by me, as I am independant and capable, and probably come across as not needing any help….but how I love being able to lavish attention and love on someone who understands my need for exactly that! Im also literally very warm; its like my body radiates heat and people in my vicinity feel it even without me touching them. I mellow it… Read more »

Leo, Leo rising, Aquarius Moon… Five has always been my fave number, too, and never had a “reason.” She was such a beauty; that photo is utterly regal. I understand her comments about men completely. I’ve always struggled to find a man as strong as I am but who understands that I crave a bit of tenderness, too. I think of this as the “lion with a thorn in her paw” trait, but I don’t want a mouse to remove it. Hmm.

from fragrantica.com – “Number 19 in the name refers to the birth date of Coco Chanel, August 19. The perfume was launched in 1970 when Coco Chanel was 87 years old, a year before she died. It was created by Henri Robert, a perfume creator which created many other perfumes of the Chanel house. The composition merges aggressive green note of galbanum and woody dusky note of iris as a harmonious bridge between delicate floral heart and leathery-woody base. Chanel Nยฐ19 is hard to classify and describe. It includes fragrant notes of galbanum, neroli, bergamot, jasmine, rose, lily of the… Read more »

I think the fixed sign thing can be a bit TOO challenging for a Leo. The competition can be a bit much when neither side is prepared to give an inch. (From my Aqua experience). I am hoping for a Sagg or possibly Aries.

YOu know what is weird? Some of the happiest couplings I’ve seen is later in life Leo women with Pisces men. I swear! weird! They are like old people who can’t get enough of each other. :3 I think Leo -Sagg can work as long as you don’t mind picking up after them too much. I’ve never seen leo-Aries coupling in RL but looks great on paper! I need a fixed sign as I’m a cardinal and don’t care too much for other cardinal signs. I do like mutables though but I’m not sure i can handle them.

But then I give them corn on the cob to eat later.

I have almost no Leo in my chart. It’s got Vertex in it, but that’s it. And every Leo guy I’ve met I don’t like except as friends. All the Aries men I’ve met are already partnered.

my adorable capricorn friend i once lived with kept a copy of the Chanel book on the loo floor, and she introduced me to Chanel lipstick when we travelled in Europe.

her clothes were groundbreaking for the time. she was the first to use jersey in the era when women had only just started moving around – elastic fibres were a new thing. She followed on from and was the undoing of paul poiret – who was wildly into astro and wore a ring with the jewel for the corresponding astro rulership of the day on his fingers. Poiret had removed the boning and structure of garments Chanel took his lead she also took his successfully marketed idea of perfume and made it her own in her own way being the… Read more »

Now that I think of it I do like Chanel make-up.
jeeze, yeah there is a class, gender, fashion intersection going on in the history. good call on galliano for her designer if around today.. and v interesting note you end on leo archetype ‘to rise like the sun’.

jupiter was big in his chart – he’s fascinating around at the time of blavatsky and orphic cubism when mysticism was big. he thought he was the reincarnation of a sheik or something can’t remember exactly but there’s a great book about him from the 70s which is a bit hard to find and that along with some more objective (his wife helped write it) recent words is a good combo – metropolitan museum of art has an online collection of his i think but is more scholarly. He was totally decadent and mildly delusional in my opinion and Coco… Read more »

Love all that is Channel (Coco) you are right she was cutting edge for the times. Did you Leos know her new nail polish line has a color Peridot Awesome golden/green.

that article backs up the nazi tendances in that it names Wallis Simpson as one of coco’s customers at the beginning of her career and Wallis and Edward were known nazi sympathisers – they were an embarrassment to the royal family because of it. That’s why they shipped him off to Barbadoes which Wallis hated because it was colonial and isolated.

I have read she was an anti Semite and homophobic (despite supposedly having several same sex affairs) . Not nice.
These sorts of things take the shine of the glam, for me.

She would have loved The Lion fountain at Alhambra being reconstructed.
A bit sad really,strong but sad, maybe her Leo profile didn’t need that all consuming thing but my Leo moon definitely does or I’m a ragged lioness. The loyalty shines through though, drat that loyalty, lasts way beyond when it is valued!

Didn’t know Coco Chanel was so beautiful.

Someone tried to scratch this Leo at work today. I merely hinted at claws and then disappeared away from the negativo vibe cause she was itching for some bitching.

Glad I didn’t lose my cool. Tomorrow will protect myself better.

Will collect more lions for luck. Go Coco wherever you are.

I like Lion statues, and would like to have them on the front gates or near the entrance to my abode one day, as guards. I like all Leo symbology ~ sunflower, sun, lion. AND I like that top/dress plunging neckline with the fine black trim, in the pic.
