As a Leo sun, Scorp ascendant and Cap moon, I do love black And Jewel tones. They compliment each other so well. But, since Saturn hit Scorpio, I have been on a minimalist Black bender!

I have to remind myself to wear grey to “lighten up” and try not to scare people. I am restraining myself because I really want to do the eyeliner to the max with the lined inner rim in blue, of 1980’s technique.

That black poem is speaking to me!

Always knew black was Scorp…no brainer….Wearing all black right now…black yoga pants, t-shirt, hoodie, sandals and purse..My sunglasses so dark purple they seem black…

“Black is magic, black is fullness, black all colours together singing at once, black is the velvet night sky, black is falling head long into joy, black is a sinuous cat.

(Or it can be dusty, rotted, ashes, emptiness, falling into fear, all the colours with none of the beauty, a mess, lost, sick venom of a toad)”: beautifully written Andro, and I like the way the shapes and moves of the sentences.

I think black is beautiful, but the human energy field doesn’t respond well to all black clothing all the time.

Already a shy retiring type, I need to boost my aura, not try to disappear.

As Leo with Gem Rising I love both gold & silver, white & black, look good in strongish colours and pastels – however I cannot wear red! No matter what. I bought a beautiful and flattering dress the other day, can’t even bring myself to look at it. I think I am fanning the flames by just breathing, must be my Scorpio moon adding the dragon aspect!

i love black. i look good in black. it makes my blonde hair whiter and more dramatic- guess i’m a winter. bits of silver, olive, purple, and red to accent. black is just perfect all around. and the quote is fabulous.

actually this is the flip-side to my hippy cotton print sundress barefoot self. she is around too, but being minimized by saturn atm methinks.

Natal S. Node in Scorp along with Neptune. I started asking my mom if I could wear black clothing when I was 7 yrs old but was not allowed until 2 yrs later. In my 20s I was platinum blonde with glow-in-the-dark white skin and wore nothing but black. Now back to brunette and have added some greys and blues but black is still my goto color. There are some colors I wear…cream, yellow, olive green, brown..yep, I’m boring in the color dept.

Black is probably the most natural colour for Scorps to wear. It’s aligned with them. When I wear black, I feel like I’m putting myself in a particular box, it’s nice to be in, but I don’t want to stay there forever.

I feel most “myself” in some kind of cat print these days. Seems to work with my mars and merc in Leo.

I’m not a Scorpio, but my Moon is in Scorpio (my Sun/Venus in Aries, Ascendant in Leo) and Pluto is the most dominant planet in my chart…not to mention I’m doing some serious Pluto transits at the moment. I used to wear shit loads of color, especially pink (usually neon) and pretty much everything else I owned was some variation of pink. I had some really fuqed up fascination (okay, *obsession*) with the Legally Blonde movies as a little kid and I thought everything I owned had to be pink.

Not a Scorp (OK, heavy Pluto influence), but I love black for a rather Leo reason- my long hair looks just great againest it :).

I also love white, but lately find it harder to wear as said hair is getting a bit grey *ahem*, and it just doesn’t look that great anymore.

Actually, my favorite color is royal blue- looks great with my hair (greys and all) and my skin tone and eye color.

I really hate those glow in the dark greens, oranges and pinks. Did that in the 60s, and that was enough, thank you very much.

Back in the 80’s, i thought people wore black in Adelaide to save on dry cleaning bills & laundry. Black was a lack of colour i NEVER wore but slowly succumbed until i couldn’t wear any colour at all, only monochromes. Guess it was a full circle thing as wore so many rainbows in the 70’s when it was all Fiorucci & Pucci. When i see women wearing black bras under white tops, it totally unbalances me as do white shoes with black stockings.

That quote is certainly Scorpio. Its nice to have Scorpio outed! I suspect they’d never intentionally describe themselves so clearly – it must be about black.

I knew I’d get dinged for using the word lazy, which is why I chose the word “lazier” as in I could learn a lot about going with the flow, using leverage with less effort, etc, from a Scorp.

Black feels like a uniform (aka straight jacket). I read some book that said black and dark blue are money colors and you should wear them when you want to improve communication at work. Must be a power (hungry) color cause everyone in the Washington, DC area wears black and dark blue, maybe khaki (cringe) and red on occasion (a la Sarah Palin when she had wardrobe people). I hate the (lack of) fashion around here.

The reason all those Public Servants in D.C. are wearing blue and black is that they too have read somewhere the idiocy that they equate to power and money. Besides, like the unattractive, unimaginative designers who have become billionaires by dictating ‘in’ people should dress in (uniforms) black, bureaucrats aren’t known for their imagination. I was a bureaucrat myself, always went against the prevailing mind set but was supported , thankfully, by a few very powerful, dynamic guys.

Quite a while ago, I noticed Mystic’s remarks about how Leos don’t look good in greige. Just the existence of the term greige shocked me. I think I was wearing khaki pants and a beige silk shirt when I read that. She said that Leos look better in solid colors, especially bright colors. As a Leo ascendant, I took the advice to heart. I mostly wear bright solids. But lately I’ve been wearing a lot of black. Black pants and a black shirt, under my Hugo Boss blue “unstructured blazer’ looks fantastic.

How do you afford Hugo Boss if you are unemployed/underemployed?? None of my business, I suppose, but the Hugo Boss brand caught my eye because I have a multi-Cappy son who adores the brand and I secretly suspect is part of the reason is because “Boss,” a very Capricorn word, is part of the name

There was a time when I had serious money, but I knew it wouldn’t last forever, so I bought classic looks and indestructible fabrics. The unstructured blazer I believe dates back to about 1995. I didn’t wear it very often, to preserve it. But then I realized, what am I saving it for? I’m saving it for NOW. Lately I have worn it every day for weeks. I also found a very bright solid blue and heavily embroidered Versace shirt in the closet, but I decided it is too fragile, it’s more date night or club gear. But right now… Read more »

My Cap Asc loves navy and grey… occasionally black. Venus in libra LOVES colour and patterns… and stripes… and polka dots.

My favourite colour is green though.

At the risk of sounding deeply pretentious.. heh. the haters of the all black is no imagination league, to me it is about silhouette as the statement and there is something about the absence of colour that gives me permission to be more about putting that colour elsewhere, like expression itself rather than needing it to be about myself. ie In that way It’s absent from a mood or emotional statement and I love that, if colour had a uniform it would be black or white for the same reason.

Ms – yes totally agreed. Another Scorpio here, sun moon. Black isn’t all about you, it’s refocusing on other people – it isn’t all “look at me”, it takes the emphasis off you to look at other people instead. It’s tres minimalist as well. All my wardrobe is black with the odd flash of grey and white. Black is functional, practical and easy to coordinate. Plus with lots of different fabric textures it’s far from dull.

OK in typical Gemini style, Melbourne has 2 founding dates.

Astrologers seem to go with the 8th of June 1835, which was the day that John Batman landed on the site that is now Melbourne, proclaiming it to be the place for a village.

On August 26th (Virgo)1835 John Falkner landed on the same site and built the first house.

I especially love all black body skimming clothing with say a statement pair of boots/shoes. It lets your hair, face and physique say so much. Nothing like an outline in black. I guess the artist in me is speaking here. I’ve recently started serious photography and I definitely prefer black and white for sociological pictorials. It really levels things and leaves out the interference resulting in a pictorial of what I want to portrait, i.e. people in their natural habitat.
