Sagittarius Rising style is simple. It is the rockstar ascendant. They can make anything look cool.
It is an astrological fact that you ideally look like your ascendant. A.k.a. your rising sign. Unsure of your Rising Sign? Get an Astral DNA for my unique, non-cliche and supportive take on your whole natal birth chart.
So if you are – say – a stealth Scorpio with Leo Rising, it’s auspicious to LOOK Leo. Even if your Scorpionic psyche shrivels at the mere thought of big hair, bling and a 20-meter radius ostentatious entitlement scent from a designer/model/celebrity you personally feel a psychological affinity with.
Apologies to Leo Rising but Sagittarius Rising really is the rock star Ascendant. For a start, they don’t just ‘like dressing up’. It is a pagan art-form with them.
Dressing Up As Pagan Art Form
Glitter and abs, as modeled by Saggo Rising Aries Elton John, above, appeal to them. Remember, a Sagittarius Rising person is ruled by Jupiter who cannot go too over the top.
Plus they often have the physiques to carry off high performance ab-tastic glittery sequined clothing.
See below, TWO Saggo Risings performers – the Virgo Pink and Libran Gwen Stefani. See also the penchant for platinum blonde. Sagittarius Rising often thinks in terms of absolute. If their hair is to be blondified, it will be as white it can go without brain damage. If black, darker than a raven’s wing.
The general idea? FUQ SUBTLE. Revenge Abs is also a highly Sagittarius Rising concept.
Subtlety Is Stressful To Sagittarius Rising People
Glam Rock icon Marc Bolan – another Libra Sun/Sagg Rising – is credited with actually having INTRODUCED glitter (and feather boas) to rock music wardrobes. He also claimed to be in training with a wizard in Paris who was teaching him how to levitate and had a statue of Pan that he would write notes to in Runic script. Super-chic.
Revenge Abs Are A Legit Sagittarius Rising Strategy
Sagittarius Rising is capable of taking their style ethos and setting the Zeitgeist with it. It does not occur to them to obey a trend dictated or even hinted at from another source. Vivienne Westwood (Saggo Rising/Aries Sun) is a big brand now but in her day she was iconoclastic. “I was messianic about punk, seeing if one could put a spoke in the system in some way.” She is 74 but obviously refusing to dress a la any societal convention around what a 70-something “should” dress like.
Long hair on the men is another Sagittarius Rising ‘thing’ – this is the poor sad Paula Yates and Bob Geldof in the 90s, pre Michael Hutchence. BOTH had/have Sagittarius Rising.
Another Sagittarius Rising, super star and long-haired icon: Bob Marley.
Spooky-Occult Beliefs Regarding Long Hair
Sagittarius Rising women wear long hair at any age and a lot of them do not like to get it even trimmed, no matter what. Long hair can be like the secret super-power of Sagg Rising women. Goldie Hawn – Scorpio Sun – is a prime example.
As is the Brazilian actor Sonia Braga.
So you are Sagittarius Rising, you don’t follow stupid rules, you wear your hair long if you want to and hey, if you like something, it’s probably the Next Big Thing. But is there one definitive accessory for Sagittarius Rising? Oh yes. And it’s not their birthstone – although that is turquoise fyi.
It is bandannas. Feast your eyes on this selection of Sagittarius Rising bandanna wearers and notice the ease with which they pull off this notoriously unflattering thing.
Jimi Hendrix – HIS was laced with L.S.D. for that extra Sagg Rising zing.
Patti Smith – Capricorn with Saggo Rising.
Steve Tyler – key Saggo Rising style quote: “If it is worth doing, it is worth over-doing.”
Bob Dylan – yes, another music icon. Saggo Rising seems to have more than its fair share of them.
Bridget Bardot – probably the epitome of enduring boho chic.
They’re Momentum Players
And Brad Pitt. If you are Sagittarius think hippy-luxe, a guitar, over-doing everything because you ARE Zeitgeist and bandanna chic. But one of the reasons Sagittarius Rising can get away with all is that they often super sportif. Theirs is an ascendant that needs to be in constant motion to even think – like those machines that only function when they’re moving. They’re momentum players. So they often end up renowned for their physique.
Above is Bradley Cooper, whose devotion to preparing physically for his role in American Sniper, stunned the trainers charged with transforming him. But remember, Sagittarius Rising will go over the top. It’s not stoic – it’s exuberance. Life to them is not a rat race – it’s more like a chariot race.
Marlon Brando – see how many iconic looks he sparked.
Hilary Swank…whom, if you think about it, is constantly playing cliche-breaking roles. “I’m just a girl from a trailer park who had a dream.” Her transformation for Million Dollar Baby was a stunner.
If you’re a Sagittarius Rising not given to glitter, glam or L.S.D laced bandannas, consider the other key look of Sagittarius Rising: preppy. It’s brilliant because it serves as a disguise for how totally bats you/they are inside.
Ellen De Generes perfects preppy chic. The snazzy trainers, clean white t-shirt (she probably has a thousand) and the “just bleach it” platinum blonde of so many a Saggo Rising blonde.
Long Hair, Long Legs and Long Shot Gambles
Here is Anjelica Huston embodying the other epic asset of Sagittarius Rising – fantastic legs – along with the preppy vibe.
AND, don’t cry, Princess Diana (Cancerian with Saggo Rising) in the year before she died. A Sagittarius Rising imprisoned in a palace with endless protocol, an unhappy marriage, dress code, and stiff brocade seems like such a sad story but in the months after her divorce, she was finding her own style and it showed off so much of the Sagittarius Rising style: long legs, athletic chic, hair that was getting more platinum every week and preppy Awesome.
But THIS was her most iconic look near the end; in khaki and protective gear, lending her still unsurpassed public profile to the fight against landmines.
Probably right up there alongside Diana in terms of ‘icon’ status, is Elvis Presley, a Capricorn with Saggo Rising. Here, he demonstrates the Sagittarius Rising ability to look great in prints that would swamp another ascendant.
This is his grand-daughter, Riley Keough, also a Sagittarius Rising and obviously with the ‘carry-off-prints’ gene intact.
Eighties Sly Stallone – VOILA. A Crab with Saggo Rising, he has this ascendant’s knack of not giving a crap about ‘the rules’:
“My life has always been chaotic. From the time I got dressed in the back of a deflated, flat-tired, fish-smelling station wagon for Rocky. It’s always been do it yourself, kind of like paper-clip it together.”
Finally, proving that this is an ascendant with the ability to have chutzpah even in dungarees, Bruce Lee! Which of these Sagittarius Rising style icons do you most relate to?
