Hey Mystic, I’m a new subscriber and love your scopes but I have a beauty related question for you.
I’m a Pisces (Leo Ascendant) and true to form I was thinking about a new look for my hair. Am a natural brunette (more mousy brown than luscious – not fuqing cool), went blonde a while ago but its been growing out and looking brassy and bleh.
I’ve been going through this weird phase where I actually think I look half decent despite my hair being a mess right now. (I’m curious to know if this has anything to do with Jupiter or some other planet. Jupiter has been hanging around near my apartment wink emoticon )
I’ve never had “fun” hair before and am thinking about doing a moody/subtle /muted pastel look. I think I have found the right hairdressers but I don’t have the extra funds right now. I know mercury is in retrograde and am not sure if this is the right time to make massive changes to my hair.
To get to the point my question to you is this: do you have any idea when the best time to make a big hair change is over the next few months? Will have to save up but I am a bit nervous as I’ve never had colourful hair. My choices are usually pretty tame. Cheers!
Amazing Hair Questing Pisces
Dear Amazing Hair Questing Pisces,
Okay thank you! And the revamped Scheduler is going to have great hair dates (etc) in it. But in the meantime, next week – May 12 to 15 – is Venus in link to Pluto, the Change God. And Venus is in Taurus, sign of her grace and sanctuary. Mercury WILL be Retro so you need to be careful with the communication. Control freak the whole thing. Take pix and ask questions.
But there is MORE here than just your hair. Why is thinking you look “half decent” a “weird phase?” With Leo Rising, your version of your hair being “a mess” may not be aligned with general hair consciousness of society, just so you know. It’s like when Libra people say they “reek” because they were not able to do the full ritual.
Also, i am not a hair broker but seriously if you want fun hair, you can d.i.y. yes? It’s the super-natural ‘born like this’ wheaten hues that cost the $$$ & require pros. “Fun” hair is but some chemist shop gunk, a glass of wine and some Schoolboy Q away – right?
And, Jupiter hanging around near your apartment? I like the sound of this, i think.
So some Pisces Sun – Leo Rising hair icons for your research.
Above is Ellen Terry – the most famous actor of her (19th Century) day. Sometimes called “the first superstar” she led a flagrantly bohemian life (by the standards of that time) and she scandalized with her hair. Even more than with her multiple marriages and all.
Glenn Close, still super relevant and happening a decade after her second Saturn Return. This is the mature Leo Rising vibe at its best. Simple, pared back and with a glow derived in part from yoga, in part from power. The hair says ‘not succumbing to gray or silver cougar‘ but nor is it some whacked out extension trip.
And i am including Rita Ora here as she IS Leo Rising – albeit Saggo Sun/Pisces Moon – because she was the chief proponent/trend initiator of pink/blue hair. I realize this is debatable. But Ora has recently gone back to pure platinum. And i actually think this works for Leo Rising – Leo Rising = the Sun/Yellow/Gold.
Also, when Jupiter is hanging around your – um – apartment, you can think in terms of drastic this and drastic that. But why not an interim trim/toning down the brassiness before the big hair morph?
