It is an astrological fact that you ideally look like your ascendant. A.k.a. your rising sign. If you know your time of birth, this is very easy to establish via Astrodienst.
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 metre radius ostentatious entitlement scent from a designer/model/celebrity you personally feel a psychological affinity with.
To be Pisces Rising is to be ruled by Neptune, God of Shamanic Awesome, Glamour, Fashion, Nightclubs & Drugs, amongst many other things. Pisces Rising peeps can find it difficult to get a grip on their look or even how they transmit to other peeps. Some of them rise to the challenge, becoming chameleons of style and official icons in fashion, because they’re so insanely mutable, they’re never going to bore the paparazzi with the same normcore outfit day in and day out.
But deep down, to be Pisces Rising means you don’t give a fuq about whatever paradigm you are presented with because Pisces-Neptune Vibe subverts paradigms for breakfast. And so if there is a dress code, guess what’s going to be de-coded real fast? It will be the Rosetta Stone by the time Pisces Rising has gotten through with it.
So singer-songwriter-entrepreneur Pharrell Williams does all that; Adidas Jackets teamed with designer shirts, jeans on the red carpet “so distressed that they’re suicidal” (as G.Q. Magazine called one of his recent looks), no fear of seeming totally camp and a penchant for camouflage. As it happens, Pharrell nails a lot of classic Pisces Rising style indicators.
When not styled for an event or selling something, the Gwyneth is often seen slithering around in both distressed jeans AND camouflage. WHY is this so Pisces Rising? Do they really think camouflage in an urban environment will make them blend in? Is it a homage to the military, because deep in their convoluted psyches, Pisces Rising peeps really do view life as a battle and themselves as aspiring elite combatants?
And here are Gwyneth’s camouflage stilettos.
Voila Zayn Malik, former One Direction teen heart-throb and now solo artiste.
And Demi Moore,
Pisces Rising peeps often specialize in rapid transformations. They can do drab to fab at Warp Speed (they have special endorphins that only release for certain occasions) and just when people write them off, Pisces Rising re-emerges looking mysteriously fantastic.
And, of course, Pisces Rising (being ruled by Neptune, the God of Movie Stars and Magic) produces its fair share of completely beguiling hot people. A la Robert Redford, a solar Leo and long-time King of Hollywood. If you google “Robert Redford style” hundreds and hundreds of ineffably cool pics flash up. He exists in his own category of Awesome and ability to pull off double denim.
Also in the unbelievably handsome stakes, Mr George Clooney, who looks good now and
Then…Young Pisces rising peeps are often driven by multiple insecurities to tour around with the determination to pull everyone. Key weapons; goo-goo eyes and a probably accurate demeanor that suggests they would do more or less anything.
If they do decide to deploy sex as a career tool, they tend to be extremely good at it. This is iconic pin up Bettie Page: “I never believed in keeping up with the fashions. I believed in wearing what looked good on me.” Which seemed to be mostly lingerie and a whip.
Clara Bow, the original It Girl of Golden Hollywood was another Pisces Rising, huge in her day and an unabashed party animal. If you look closely at any Pisces Rising, no matter how they are styled or what era they spring from, you see that warrior glint in their eye. They legitimately do not give a fuq about conventional anything. It’s a contest between them and Aquarius Rising as to who would be least interested.
When not in camouflage mode, their core fashion competency is probably high camp. Antonio Banderas’s brilliant vampire, for example. Note the rapid transition from snarky to tender.
And 90s Antonio Banderas was having an epic time.
And finally, we have Johnny Cash, a man even more multiple Piscean than Jack Kerouac.
Cash was Mars, Mercury, Sun, Ascendant, North Node and Lilith – all spanning the constellation of Pisces. His explanation for always wearing black:
“I wear the black for the poor and the beaten down,
Livin’ in the hopeless, hungry side of town,
I wear it for the prisoner who has long paid for his crime,
But is there because he’s a victim of the times.
I wear the black for those who never read”
It was probably also easier to keep clean but one of the key concepts of Pisces Rising is that they consider practical explanations for most things to be just tedious.
