Style Your Ascendant: Aquarius Rising

Filed in Zodiac Fashion

David Bowie

How to dress if you are Aquarius Rising.

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.

Aquarius Rising means you’re “ruled” by Uranus. Or, because nobody “rules” Aqua Rising, it’s more like Uranus rays transmit into their neural matrix while the Aquarius Rising person astral trips every 16 hours (approximately).  What other people see as “on time” or “contemporary” or “in touch” is very much “w.t.f. that is another era” to Aquarius Rising.

Aquarius Rising Despises Trends

Although like David Bowie, above, they can turn on a genius costume/character/alter-ego in the service of their art/commerce, many an Aquarius Rising despises “trends”. If such a phenomenon exists, Aqua Rising would be setting them not obeying.

When not in performance mode, the classic Aquarius Rising look is monochromatic, a thousand variations of gray, charcoal, silver, grayer and slate. Many of them are SO accustomed to feeling alien/different as a young adult that they choose it as a form of urban camouflage.

Here is Mr. Bowie in September 2015, 68 and a half years old, still relevant and working his arse off. Note that he has Mars conjunct his Capricorn Sun. Think: Uranian Zeitgeist Rays backed by the most awesome work ethic.

David Bowie

Aqua Rising peeps often have a horror of dressing “too young” – maybe as they revere youth? Or because they like to reinvent completely every time Uranus changes sign – that’s every seven years. Or they thrash the eccentric dressing/shock the proles’ scene as teenagers/early 20-somethings and are over it well before their first Saturn Return even.

Here, for example, is Kim Basinger with her early tousled hair/red lips/Batman look and her vibe now. Nobody can accuse her of trying to work the same look non-stop.

Kim Basinger

Hippy Mindset Not Clothes

Aqua Rising women suit suits and structured clothing. This is possibly a reflection of how their Ascendant was ruled by Saturn before Uranus was discovered.  Flowing, draped, loose, kaftan-ish clothes freak the classic Aquarius rising person right out. They like fitted, a la Charlotte Rampling.

Despite her key cinematic image being – arguably – her Givenchy styled Breakfast At Tiffany’s look – when Audrey Hepburn retired to Rome, she reverted to archetypal Aqua Rising structured monochrome.

HIGHER FEES APPLY. Audrey Hepburn in Rome in 1970.

Maybe the monochromatic vibe actually enables the reception of Uranian Zeitgeist Rays. Because honestly, the main theme that comes through from trawling through the Aquarius Rising citizens of celebrity land, is that they veer between the occasional big blast of weird Ziggy-Stardust or Nicki Minaj now type costume –

Unisex Gray Marl Is The Aquarius Rising Uniform

…And deep Normcore. Which essentially relies on the shades of gray/monochromatic vibe.   Eg, Matt Damon at the premiere of his film.

Matt Dillon in an ad – sure – but totally reflecting the Aqua Rising affinity with gray marl.

 The Uranian Zeitgeist Rays are so strong that some Aqua Rising peeps become major fashion icons, influencing the look of whole generations, their clothing choices seemingly signaling a deeper tectonic shift of vibe. The following four Aquarius Rising peeps are of that ilk.

Jim Morrison

Jim Morrison (The Doors – after Aldous Huxley’s book The Doors Of Perception which was, quoting William Blake: If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite) set the basic-bitch male rock star look for decades. Loose shirt, tight leather trousers, fuq you demeanor, poet/rebel.

Jim Morrison 2

Muso/Style Icon Jane Birkin personally popularized the denim/white-t-shirt as a totally acceptable any place look.

Jane-Birkin-patch-jeans

And here she is recently – note the normcore and the slate/charcoal vibe.

Jane-Birkin

Her daughter, the actor Charlotte Gainsbourg is also Aquarius Rising:

charlotte-gainsbourg-style-jeans-white-top

And finally, two of the fashion realms reigning icons were Aquarius Rising, unapologetic and fanatical style obsessed creators.

No normcore for these two:

Yves St Lauren with Betty Catroux

This is Yves St Laurent with his “muse” Betty Catroux – no birth details for her but she looks so Leo.

And Wallis Simpson, the American socialite, and scandal of her era. King Edward VIII abdicated his throne to marry her. Her fashion statements were fawned over as avidly as the Kardashian vicissitudes are today.

Here she is in a Salvador Dali/Elsa Schiaparelli lobster print dress.

Wallis Simpson Dali

So, to tie this together. If you are Aquarius Rising, you are either the originator of looks that influence entire generations – this is more applicable if fashion IS your form of creativity. OR you are a devotee of grey marl. You reinvent your attitude over and over but can wear the same clothes for centuries. Your comfort is a political statement.

Also, when you are Aquarius Rising, it’s not like you need to go out of your way to convince anyone you’re individuated.

This awkward, because I am an Aquarius rising and I love to dress in pastels and and rainbows, I don’t like tight clothing, and I like childish clothes. In fact I often wish I was smaller so I could fit into actual kids’ clothes. Maybe it’s my Pisces sun in 1st? Or my Aries Venus?

Well, that explains everything. I can wear the most outrageous cossie and no one bats an eyelid, but the rest of the time I am in gray/black/white active wear (Aries Sun). Gray Marle is my favourite colour. Of late I had been worried all this gray might be bad for my aura or summat but it seems I am actually honoring my identity. I do throw in the odd bit of red for my mars and also greens/blues. Oh and ADORE suits or boots/jeans/shirt for special occaisions, or the most insane frock I can find. But a good suit and… Read more »

I couldn’t be more of a Uranus-ruled/Aquarius (rising) person. Ive never fit in, never wanted to, couldn’t if I tried (which I used to). I have two strikingly different colored eyes for crying out loud, naturally. I also start so many trends, not just in terms of fashion but my attitude too, it’s crazy, I’ve always felt like the entire world was stealing my individuality constantly but now I find it flattering. Anyway. For those of you unsure about your true rising sign, figure out what house your sun is. Im developing a theory that our birth times may be… Read more »

Oh s^##. My point was that I would actually hypothesize that those individuals who can’t relate to the odd-ball, unique, individuality-obsessed Aquarius rising motif are actually often times closer to being Capricorn rising. Or perhaps Pisces rising. Again, we could guess this too if we studied more closely what each individual is like. I truly believe the astrology is real and right. If someone’s natal chart doesn’t fit perfectly to a T, they just don’t have the exactly chart. Timing could be off.. maybe even by days. I’m going to dedicate my life to proving this. Our individual astrological imprint… Read more »

I’m a cap sun with Aquarius Rising and my moon is in Sag in the 11th house. I’m now 41 years old and found out I’m in love with gray color (and white). I love all colors and change favorites often, not being afraid to dress with wildest, brightest outfits out there and have had people call me crazy for that (at least I’m never boring nor a follower), but for work I prefer to dress like a Capricorn (my mercury is in Cap in the 11th house) and leave my wild side for my private life. Recently, I’ve toned… Read more »

omg i was just feeling embarrassed that so much of my wardrobe was freakin’ shades of grey. i can’t seem to get enough grey, it’s like the colour i feel strongest in (always much to the chagrin of my fashion-obsessed Leo mother..). cool to know it has an Aqua association. I’m an Aquarius sun with pisces rising so can’t wait to see what the deal is on that… The oracle says i need to work my AC better but i’m not into flowy purple & teal dresses, robes etc as per the usual pisces fashion prescriptions.

Been waiting for this too, yay! Y’know, I like to think of myself as pretty fashionable, though I can’t claim fashion-forward. I have been on the cutting edge of trends before, but more so when I was younger. Now I have clear views on what I like and I mostly stick with it. And yes, I have to laugh because the majority of my wardrobe is black, gray, and blue. With some red thrown in for “shock value.” 🙂 I often lament the fact that when I buy new clothes, they’re almost always black or gray…but they don’t come in… Read more »

-Wanted to add that I have had alter egos who wear outrageous costumes…bling, etc. I love dress-up in general and am pretty brilliant when it comes to unique Halloween costumes. -For my monochrome outfits, I like to accessorize with metallics sometimes. Black leather hoodie is a constant. The entire Allsaints look and oeuvre is pretty much my sartorial ideal the sort of urban hipster look I wear all the time, age be damned. Won’t ever go too young with miniskirts, knee-high stockings, etc. -Have always hated high heels…too uncomfortable. Not really willing to suffer for fashion. -Although I identified as… Read more »

Hello darling. Tell me more about Aquarius and clutter, like decorative jewelry. So Ive never heard the jewelry thing and I love rocking a lot of quality, stylish stuff (my own taste) on my better days. As long as it doesn’t get in my way, bangles are so annoying you are right. Yet at the same time, if it relates to us hating clutter, let me ask you what kind of clutter. I am often seen as messy by outsiders but there is a method to my madness and despite the perceived bomb-went-off condition my things are often in, I… Read more »

I’m an aqua sun but totally go for the ‘norm core’ look. Did have a hippy phase with plenty of billowing skirts etc but now just like plain & simple. Or grungy (gem rising)

I’ve been hanging out to see this! I’m obsessed with grey. Most of my basics are grey, a pile of grey t-shirts and grey knits plus grey sneakers. If it comes in black or white, I ask if it also comes in grey. But I also have A LOT of blue, in all shades, especially lighter blues. The only thing I dont relate to is the fitted and structure elements. I hate anything suit-y or that makes me feel constricted, or that requires ironing. So apart from yoga pants basically everything I own is floaty and lightweight. I hate poor… Read more »

This is absolutely true at work i decided to wear a uniform of polo shirts and jeans, sort of an ironic take on a real uniform, it just made it easier for me to get dressed in the morning. One of them was a snickers embroidered polo though, and every time i wore it it seemed to really bother people. they wanted to know if i had worked for snickers etc. so i think it backfired lol on top of that i just spent 8+ hours tailoring this HUGE denim parka/robe that i intend to become part of my regular… Read more »

Hey yes I am aqua rising + aqua sun + other aqua planets. I do love grey marle and charcoal, black and white. This is actually called achromatic= lacking colour. Monochromatic is mono = 1 and chroma = colour so monochrome is one colour. I don’t know how or when the world stuffed this up over the last 5 years or so.
Sorry one of my bug bares.

This makes me wonder if I am not actually Aqua Rising. I only know the approximate time I was born and it puts me at 1 degree Aquarius Rising, so it’s very well possible that I am actually Cap Rising instead. I love gothic and flowy styles, although I never dress “goth” so to speak. Nonetheless, I have been called goth by many. Although I do have Neptune in Capricorn so it could all be just that. I dunno, looking at all of these outfits makes me cringe because of the shapes. I would never wear any of those things,… Read more »

Wonderful, Mystic! My partner is a Libran with Aquarius Rising and this whole ‘individual who bases an outfit around one colour’ is totally his style! As well as the ‘dressing younger’ – he is pushing 40 and still rocks his chucks shoes with jeans/shorts like a skater boy/uni student.

Hmmm. I am Aqua Rising (and Juno) and I couldn’t be happier about it, but perhaps I am yet to grow into Normcore? I own suitpants and white shirts but they make me feel ill, as they remind me of my waitstaff stints. As for plain tees…I like a logo/funny-bitchy slogan, or at least a rip or a plunging neck. I prefer jeans shredded and graffiti’d and men’s fit if I have to wear them, bright sneakers and leather boots, and I steal clothes I find from my friends more often than I seek them out to make a statement.… Read more »

One of my oldest friends is an Aqua Sun and ONLY EVER wore black and white in her teens/20’s ( ….. we were all into Ska) was also a waitress so was perma monochromatic She never spends money on clothes ( has a holiday home near the beach and travels internationally for holidays every year!)

Well this MUST answer the big question of my rising sign. See for years I thought I was aqua rising then the discovery of daylight savings time applied to my birth…so it adjusted to Capricorn. Both ruled by Saturn in a way….so this explains my black norm core uniform of turtlenecks in winter and button down shirts in summer and a preference of fitted structured everything. Black slate red and dark blue..I tell people I dress in black because navy is hard to match! Anyway I read both Cap and Aqua rising just to cover everything…

My husband is an Aquarius rising who dressed to shock in his teens and early twenties, and revered Morrison. Now it’s all about perfectly tailored, often gray, work wear he maintains immaculately.

Although he still breaks out the wild garb on the weekend now and then.

I have been waiting for this – and lo, I am doing it. Black, grey, silver, slate, check. Simple yet interesting forms, check.

Although I do not “dress my age”. I dress no age, I am told.

I’ve been quietly pruning all coloured items out of my wardrobe, and people sometimes wonder at my devotion to the monochrome. Well. Now I’ll tell them. I’m expressing my Aquarius Rising.

seawitchmermaidMM Member

Since Uranus has been opposing my Libra ascendant (waning now but still in orb I believe), I have been vibing on the whole monochrome, normcore thing. I used to be all about patterns and expressing myself through my clothes etc, not now. Dark skinny jeans or leggings, black tank, hoodie, black ballet flats. Pretty much every day. Once in a while I do wear something with a graphic on it, but it really *means something* to me, helps alignme with a frequency, etc. Any other Libra risings relate to this?

Melody

I am a Libra rising and went through the same thing–used to dress fairly flamboyantly and colorfully. Then suddenly it was all about gray/black/navy for awhile.

Okay so I have a scorp rising BUT I also Have Uranus in Scorp…ON the Ascendant…. Right…?

I dress like this! Gray/charcoal/monochrome/structure….

When I want to paint it black…sometimes I just paint it all grey…. I say saturn….. Is peeking out of the Aqua style…. Just when you thought it was fluff… Nope. Minimal and as per usual….ahead of Their time.

May I fire autocorrect?

Aqua rising and I totally relate. If it’s not normcore to go incognito, it’s complete ‘looks’ with attention to detail and quirky accents or colours. Wallis and I have have bizarrely similar charts and I love her look. Love the Zip necklace worn with open backed dress, love the panther brooches and bracelets, love the tailored and structured suits. I love a good jumpsuit or pantsuit, love classy sleek lines and like statement shoes and dresses. Dressing as self expression. I’ve even had several lucid dreams where I was dressed in an outfit that was split vertically down the middle.… Read more »

Aqua is my 8th house with only Chiron there. Its taken a while to comprehend or test but I find this placement and its transits have been very influential on my overall life view and pattern. My dad and mother in law are Aqua. Both extremely intelligent insane people who are already living in a dimension that is unfamiliar to the rest of us. My only Aqua relationship was in my early 20’s.

My Aqua Rising hub is all about jeans, sneakers and a black t. But he is not a long, lean, broad shouldered white guy like the fashion template is designed on. He likes to ride the Italian bikes, he’s muscular and he’s horrible to shop for. So I am not sure that he would choose to dress hardcore normcore if he looked different.

Thank you for this. I’ve wondered for years why I’m drawn to wear a strict uniform of blue jeans and black tees. I thought it was caused by my Gemini Sun cool aligned with my Multiple Virgoan uniform fetish. But it all makes sense now. For me, the monochrome look is also about not wanting to be distracted by my clothes from more important things on my agenda. Fashion just doesn’t interest me like other things do (except, as you say, on those rare special occasions, when I go all out). Can any other Aqua risings relate?

My Aqua Rising bestie will not/cannot leave her house if she is not perfectly monochromed matched. Her jewelry too, is chosen for matching any of the grey/black/slate monochromed variants – so it’s always silver with clear or smokey quartz crystals.

When feeling bold and in party mode, she’ll break out some orange accessories (v v muted orange – bordering brown) which to her is the most risqué thing she can wear.

I love how it’s either costume or normcore with aqua rising. I have Uranus conjunct my ascendant, and some of these are true for me. I love grey, black, and solids. I don’t try to style myself younger. I also have a weird thing with jewelry, it has to be balanced. Right now, I can’t bear to wear rings or bracelets. Not sure where that’s coming from, so why not cosmic energy wave influence? I also went through a phase where I didn’t like wearing earrings and I thought I could think better without them.

Over-70 y.o. 5-planet Gemini mother has Aquarius rising and Uranus exactly conjunct mercury (these two also in Gemini). She owns neon, the way others wear jeans and a grey T. like it’s not even a thing. Structured styles, avant-garde prints and “how do you even do that” colour choices all seem to work. sometimes its very much twinset and pearls, when she is undercover in Mainstream Society.

Funny thing about the Geminis, though… distracted?

All of our strengths are also our weaknessess. Gems, l suspect, multi tasks better than most. I spose if that goes wrong accidents happe. Certainly my multi Gem friend has first four planets and Asc. He dings his cars regularly.

The latest greys are so cool. I saw a light grey R8 today. They got the colour just right. Want ..
I learnt to drive in large sedans V6s and V8s . Those R8 things must be so easy to hammer. !

I live here too! And uh….I bought a silvery-gray car last year. Oops…at least the charcoal gray wasn’t available, that had been my first choice. :/

I’m an aqua sun with Virgo rising but must have tuned in to the aqua in my early years because the grey – I steer clear of it since my mid twenties but on a recent clean out of the norm core closet I found 8 variations of a grey jumper, one grey twin set and multiple grey grandpa and slouchy t shirts. Now it just makes me think of concrete.

I’ve been waiting ages for this and it was well worth the wait. Grey mart and monochrome for life! 🙂 It is also so very true about the dressing too young, as I am continually ensuring that I am age appropriate. As you say, I was very int trend at the beginnings of the UK underground music scene, and yes, there’s no need to make fashion statements anymore.
