Style Your Ascendant: Pisces Rising

Filed in Astro-Fashion

pharrel-williams

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?

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.

Bettie Page

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.

Antonio Banderas

And 90s Antonio Banderas was having an epic time.

Antonio Banderas with Madonna

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.

Taurus/Aqua Moon with Pisces rising, and a huge yes to this. I love giving thought to dressing. Hard to know sometimes if my mood determines my outfit or my outfit determines my mood. Love to be unconventional and surprise, but Taurus keeps me making sure it is figure-flattering, no matter if its distressed denim or flares, or velvet gowns, or silk kimono robes, or feathered headdresses…all for fun, all for some kind of camouflage (even if the camouflage is the comfort of a character created by a costume:) the pisces desire to be and try on all personas, through a… Read more »

It’s been a loooong time since I’ve worn anything that was actually camo print, but 90% of my wardrobe is muted greens, navy blue, or black and my jeans are so distressed I’m thinking of making them an appointment with a therapist. The other 10% of my wardrobe I basically only wear when I’m going for a theme, which I do from time to time because I’m wacky like that. So, this is pretty spot on for me.

I am aries sun and moon with pisces rising, so once i figured out my rising sign everything seemed to make a lot more sense. definitely me! I am heavily into my style, but NOT fashion. And i really don’t care what anyone thinks- I trust my instincts. Robert Redford hell yea.

Pisces rising here, and I can attest to all that. I have the black Adidas with white stripes gear, military flavors to express the inner warrior, distressed stuff to walk the walk, and the Sparkly Eyes Technique in my back pocket.

Yay! I have been waiting on this one. As a Pisces Rising I have no idea what I’ll be wearing from one day to the next. I sometimes do the suit jacket w skinny jeans combo. I sometimes do hippie harem-pants and no shoes. I think my fashion style is best termed as ‘classically confused’. I’m all about boots and bras – these 2 things have to be particularly nice. I’ve been told by several people that I emanate ‘vulnerability’. I look soft, my demeanour is placid and this somehow gives people the idea that it’s all good to f&%#… Read more »

Me too. Blue eyes people fall into and it’s because of my fish rising I’m sure. But me too. People always notice my shoes. I was walking last week in a large city doing my banking etc. later that afternoon I had to be some forty miles away for another client. I popped into a large supermarket and this guy walked up to me and said I saw you earlier today in the city. I know it’s you because of your shoes ! Bizarre

Ahhhh, Pisces and I just get on. As I’ve mentioned here before my 2 best friends growing up were Pisces and I was their innocent feral ramzilla muse. They taught me about music, philosophy, and how one gets what one wants without rocking the boat. I was their test pilot and hand puppet and we did crazy dangerous things without anyone ever finding out. Eg joining a middle eastern militia without our parents knowledge ! Nothing made me happier than making them laugh to the point of tears with my ramzilla antics, cause deep down I knew there was a… Read more »

I’m a Pisces Rising/Moon (Cancer sun), and while I don’t specifically wear camo, I love army green and tons of black. For me it’s not quite that I see myself as an elite combatant in the battle of life. It’s more compensation for all my built-in softness. I feel comfortable when my clothes signal a little harder, and send the message that folks shouldn’t think they can take advantage, when my face and my energy tend to signal “bunny rabbit”. But when I’m not in a situation where I’m wanting extra armor, it’s all soft textures and bright colors and… Read more »

The first thing I noticed was the shoes.

Even the conservative ones look both expensive and awkwardly worn, sort of like the feet are jammed into them a little, as if over flippers n fins.

Do love that quicksilvery flash in the water of Banderas’ expression change! Extremely Piscean. And how warrior-louche does Clara Bow look here?

Aqua w pisces rising, I’m SO happy to see this post. Tending to my ever morphing style ideas has been fun but puzzling.. (What’s my look? What’s my thing?? How can I confuse or dazzle people?) now I don’t have to worry about that even.
That said, I have always been drawn to distressed pants, to camo colors, I can’t stand restricted motion, (or angry voices/yelling btw) love hoods and blending in … Energetically?
And,mermaid chic.. The dress that made me feel the most me was a comfortable silver jersey fishtail shift.

Pisces rising Pisces all of 12th house with Saturn and Chiron conj. I go for mystery. Never slops or drab clothing, just clothing that begs questions of me. Usually soft materials, love silk, cashmere, fine cottons. Often slipping over my curves accentuating the come hither without saying a word or even catching eye contact. It’s like exuding a magnetic field. Very powerful, very wonderful and I consider Pisces a blessing.

more than once I have had friends literally not recognise me in the street, if I am the opposite extreme of whatever they normally see me in. Slipping from corporate blargh to Feral Pisces or Bushranger Gone Troppo is like an inversion of quantum states. now you see it.. etc

I have Neptune conjunct my ascendant which is in Scorpio..my Neptune is 12th house ,,I think I am a mix of the the two, dark certainly , dramatic liking suits waistcoats and fabric..silk..satin, nothing artificial..(Yuckh) love perfume like L’Heure Bleu Guerlain lots of tuberose) but also men’s aftershave, Noir by Yves St Laurent. Certainly can shape shift into femme fatale if I want. Certainly was surprised at Marlene Deitrich’s astro as feel some kinship there, but certainly the eyes have it, have very unusual pale green eyes that change colour according to mood…..love the chance to analyse myself! Lol

Mm you’ve made me realise why this post suits me, even though i’m actually Pisces Sun. It’s my 12th house Neptune which also sits on my rising.

Neptune gets amplified for me: it is at 3 deg, conjunct Jupiter at 6 deg, conjunct Moon at 9 deg, with Ascendant at 9 deg, and the fixed star Antares also at 9 deg (that is warrior star).

That’s all in Sagittarius, and it all trines my Pisces Sun. There is a lot of Neptune-Jupiter mash up.

I was smiling to note so many Sag Sun Pisces Rising peeps here. Hello Opposites! *waves*

No I don’t think you’re wrong at all but like the post says it’s that chameleon in Pisces that can hide anywhere, turning their coat any colour and all. After all that’s camoflague too. Being a Pisces rising with Saturn Chiron conjunct it but my cancer sun in the 5th makes me a rather more subtle notice me girl. Little black dress ? Hmmmmmm I’m more likely to pitch up in red or pastel. A friend had a 1920’s party and we were supposed to pitch up in flapper dresses and long strings of pearls.

Naw. I think when they go into Koi mode they like brilliant colour. But when they are in Shark mode they camo themselves. If you think about it most fish have blending colour schemes. If they swim above you their bellies look like sky. If below, their backs looks like undersea terrain.

Sensual sign…textures and fabrics have to be luxe, or simulate luxe to the touch…colour is worn like jewellery, carefully chosen for its accent and energy-channelling. Something like hundreds and thousands on a cheap gooey fairycake would make most Pisceans shudder. But something like an eighteenth century Parisian bordello styled on the mysterious orient, or an early twentieth century one if it were styled by the Surrealists, well yes.

The Aries lover with the Pisces stellium (including Pisces rising) is the master of normcore. He actually lit up when I mentioned the term … at the time he was talking about how he didn’t really care for fashion or style and I said – yeah you do, you’re totally normcore. He reckons he’s normcore about most things and even used the word “camouflage to describe how he likes to blend into the background in order to observe people better. He definitely has the big, blue goobly eye thing down pat. The double Pisces daughter (Sun/Rising) is most definitely boho… Read more »

“Pisces-Neptune Vibe subverts paradigms for breakfast”

Another Sag with Pisces rising. Lots of black in the wardrobe. A soft spot for camoflague. See I’d say the black is about camouflage and the camoflague is about subverting the paradigm. Not with much attachment to that idea though.

Saturn in 1h though so less goo-goo than guarded. And less couldn’t give a fuq than I’d like.

I do love ripped up jeans and a good military cut, although actual camo is too drag for me. I think the army/navy gear is purely a perversity — I pride myself on not being an institutional creature, but wearing literal uniform pieces works on me because it is, visibly, a huge joke.

Could the ripped/distressed jeans be a nod to their mermaid tail/ scales having been shrugged off in this mortal incarnation, yet somehow still hovering around in the form of this torn blue denim, all pathetically vulnerable & ethereal? Just a thought.

Similar vibe for the camo – “I belong on land & among trees/desert, honest!” (Even if I am from the ocean)
