Famous Fashion Designer's Sun Signs


Fashion is without a doubt art.  It is a way for people to express themselves with what they have on their body.  For hundreds of years people have used clothes as a way to express emotion, status, and culture.  There is so much to be said about what a person has on their body, because we as humans make first impressions.  The colors, fabric, and style of the clothing can reflect religion, mood, and can even tell a person what you represent without saying a word.  Below are some of the most noted fashion designers that have created clothing that have inspired masses.  I personally am a Tory Burch ho fo sho.  If I had money for some of these other designers, I am sure I would own some more.  I believe our astrological personality definitely sways our decision in fashion, as it does with these designers creation.  Have fun getting to know a bit more about these great talents...

Leo Woman - Leo Man



To say that the Leo Man doesn't like being upstaged is down playing it... a lot.  To a Leo woman, the role of being a stay at home mom is usually not enough for her.  She needs attention from people, and frequently.  I am not saying that being with her children does not give her fulfillment, but she is going to want more.  This woman is an absolute Queen, and getting down on her hands and knees to scrub the floor does not mix well with her freshly painted manicure you see.  Okay so let's make it full circle...  If the Leo woman upstages her Leo man's career in any way there could very well be some problems.  We will get there...

 Overall he will be very loving and protective of his Lioness counterpart.  She will love that they both have fun and outgoing personalities, and they will both have a lot of friends to hang out with.  He will be warm and generous; she will be bright and loving.  Together they will have straight sunshine coming out of their asses.  However, we need to get back to that whole career thing unfortunately.  Let's break down the three situations.
  1. He makes more money than her when they first meet and it stays that way - Good
  2. He makes more money than her when they first meet, but then she makes more after time - Scary
  3. She makes more money than him when they first meet - Possibly not going to have a relationship
Sorry to my Leo ladies that are in that last situation.  If it does end up working out, he will make it his goal to make as much or more money than you soon. If this is not an issue for you and your Leo man, money will be nothin' but a chicken wang to him.  He will gladly pay for things and spoil you as much as he possibly can.  

The difference between this relationship than any other one that the Lioness has been in is that she is not on top, she is not the one in charge, and she is certainly not always the one at the center of attention.  One of my best friends, a Leo lady, dated a Leo man for over 4 years.  The two of them were hilarious together.  The two of them were always in the spotlight wherever they went.  They were loved and adored by everyone they met.  You couldn't meet them, separate or together, and just not fall in love.  They equally shared the spotlight as though they were on stage performing for their adoring fans.  Being that I am a Scorpio, my loyalty was with her through their breakup.  However, many of their friends remained close to both of them.  That's the thing with Leos, they are hard to let go of.  You get addicted to their fun, warm, and bold personalities.  When you haven't seen your Leo friend in a while, it is almost as though you haven't seen the sun.  You miss them.  Apparently that is how these two Leos felt about each other, because they are currently working things out.  Even the sun gets cold apparently.  



One thing a Lioness should never do is anything to embarrass him or make him feel less of a man.  Leo men are MEN.  They will not appreciate being demeaned in any way.  The same goes for her.  She wants to be treated like a Queen.  If you treat her just like any other peasant girl, her claws come out.  Have you ever seen two cats fight?  It is not a pretty sight. 

One thing they should NOT do that Leos tend to do a lot is teach people lessons with jealousy.  Most Leo couples will make each other jealous by making the other believe that they are having a love affair with another person.  As we know, Leos are quite a jealous sign so this will not end pretty.  This smoke screen is merely an attempt to threaten the other person with this idea of infidelity, when the reality is that they are both lonely and missing one another.  My advice to you is to skip all that bull shit, and to just love one another.  After all, royalty would rarely even think about anything serious or long term with another peasant person.  

These two Fire Signs might not get much sleep in the bedroom.  Their sex will be something that no Earth, Air, or Water sign will ever understand.  There will be passion, affection, romance, and joy in their lovemaking.  She should let him be King in the bedroom, and he will do a great job of it.  They will worship and admire one another just like they should.  They represent the heart, and when you have two hearts as beautiful as a Leos can only be, sex will be as rich as red velvet cake.   



Sometimes honesty < pride can be a problem with this Sun Sign.  It can be hard for them to take their crown off and be humble with anyone, even each other.  Remember how I mentioned my friend and her Leo lover earlier?  Well I was thinking about him one day, and I thought, "I really like him, but I don't really KNOW him."  That is how it can be with Leos.  They are always performing, joking, and entertaining their admirers that they don't have time to humble themselves to a peasant serious level. Therefore, it can even be hard for them to tell each other the way they feel in fear that the other one would not feel worthy of the other.  What you both need to remember is that a healthy and WHOLE relationship consists of being vulnerable with one another, and that means admitting flaws, feelings, and mistakes.  Yes, honesty can be embarrassing at times for the regal Leo, but there is also something so freeing about it as well that will only bring you closer to your counterpart.  Humiliation is better than a lifetime of loneliness.  Wouldn't you agree? 

Love one another, complement each other every day, make your amazing love frequently, and stop hanging out with other peasants people to make the other jealous.  Recognize and be grateful that you have met someone as warm, beautiful, bold, and possess a heart of gold like you.  Rein the world together.  After all, it is yours.... we're just living in it.  




The Aries Man



Want an exciting, dynamic, and wild time.... date an Aries man.  You will need to keep him interested and keep his attention with you which is not an easy task.  He gets bored easily and is always jumping from one thing to the next.  Their energy is enough to make you tired after a few hours.  Have you ever heard of someone saying that they need to take someone in doses?  That very well could be an Aries man.  He is definitely no wall flower, and has a bold and memorable personality.  One thing that may confuse you about him is how he can be so generous one moment, but so selfish the next.  Let me try to explain; he enjoys giving money to a complete stranger in need because Aries have a sweet and childlike heart, but think of a child and how selfish they are.  When they don't get their way they throw a tantrum and can even become thoughtless.  They want things yesterday and don't care to be around people they don't like.  It's nothing against the Aries, that's just a part of their powerful personalities.

If you meet an Aries man that is 21 and are looking for a serious relationship, I would think again my dear.  Aries men take a while to mature and settle down.  They believe that the world is their oyster, and they have such a young and fresh perspective on life that marriage and children do not seem appealing to them until their later years.  When they find a girl they love, they will go into it head first and with no apprehensions.  They love with a fiery passion, and then when it fizzles out they pick themselves up and on to the next hot and heavy romance.  They don't have a hard time letting things go and starting fresh. When they do really find the one woman that they want to share the rest of their life with they will be very faithful partners.  They expect the very same from you.  Flirtation with another man is in no way shape or form acceptable.  He may have had many casual flings in his life, but if you are his he will not accept anything casual from you.  To really lock this man down is quite a feat.  You can't be too casual, but you can’t be too aggressive.  Let him lead the relationship, but once he has made you his don't try to play hard to get or he will look for attention somewhere else. 


He loves romance as much as any woman does.  He wants the "happily ever after" ending just like in the fairy tales.  He will always have a child-like soul, and therefore romance and fairytale love must always be a part of your relationship.  If it fades, he will become very depressed.  He wants one true lasting love, but if you become someone that depresses him he will undoubtedly move on.  He wants a true lady by his side that he can be proud to be with, and that has a positive and cheery outlook on life.  He has a fiery and bold spirit that should never ever become small and weak because his partner is depressing him by trying to lower his spirit and flame.  He is a man's man.  Don't push him around, but be strong enough to not let him push you around.  Encourage his independence, but hinder his compulsiveness.  It is all about balance with this headstrong man. 

One thing that may drive you a little nuts is his constant need to always be right.  If this man apologizes for something, you may want to start preparing for the apocalypse.  I know that this trait can be maddening, but you have to remember that he has a child's heart.  It is pretty much asking a little kid to say sorry.  Why even bother when you knew his intentions were pure?  If it causes a separation for a while, don't fret.  Taking a break from an Aries man is not always a terrible thing because just like any fire, it needs air to breath.  Once you come back into each other’s arms, the passion will be as hot as when you first met.  The only thing I would strongly advise against is flirting or seeing another man to make him jealous in-between.  Although that may work with some men like the Cancer man, that will not work with the Ram.  These men want to be the only one your eyes see, and they are quite jealous.  What is a little maddening is that he can be quite a flirt at times without even knowing it.  This is just one thing you will have to turn your head to, because he honestly does not mean anything by it ESPECIALLY if it is well known that you are his princess.


This guys will probably be one hell of a businessman.  He has got ego for days and he is a natural born leader.  He loves being the leader all the time; in his relationships, at his job, with his friends, in his family.... everywhere.  Whenever he has had a bad day at work, or someone has hurt his feelings he will want you to baby him big time.  Behind the very big front that he puts on at work and everywhere else, is a sweet child that needs a hug every once in a while.  If you give him this undying support he will spoil you with love and material items that make you feel like a real life princess.  He will compliment and adore you like you are the only woman on the face of the planet.  Yes his temper may flare up from time to time, but he will come home later that day with the biggest bouquet of roses you have ever seen.  If you learn that his intentions are good, and if you can forgive and forget you will have a lasting relationship with him.

 
Once you have married him, I would be shocked if you ever had to worry about scraping pennies.  This man will always find a way to make money.  Like the Pisces male, they are very generous with giving their money away, and spoiling you and the ones they love.  As a father he will be ecstatic when the babies start arriving.  He will love playing with them when they are young.  As they mature he will be bossy with them, especially about their future.

If you end up with him forever, you will never be bored, you will always be taken care of, you will be spoiled, and you will be treated like a true princess right out of the fairytales you read as a child.  You will have a strong and bold partner for life.  His romance and passion will always be yours if you just remember to keep him on his toes.





Grammys 2014 Recap


So this years 2014 Grammys was.... interesting.  From broomtwerking, lampshades, and crippled cowgirls; I think they had it covered.  Here is what went on in my head (a scary place) while watching this years Grammys with my Spirit Animal


Aries
Holy Hat
Did he do it for attention, or did he do it because he thought it looked cool?  I am going to go with the latter of the two.  Pharell has been named best dressed man several times, but this is quite confusing to me.  Being that he is an Aries, I HIGHLY doubt he gives a rats ass what people thought of his Smokey the Bear Arby's state trooper hat.  Regardless, his performance with Daft Punk was sick and he won Producer of the Year.  Not too shabby... even if that hat is.


Gemini
Best New Artist
Gemini Macklemore took the Grammys by storm winning a total of 4 Grammys from two of the biggest categories - Best New Artist & Best Rap Song.  What is SO Gemini about this guy is that his album has goofy and fun songs on it like "Thrift Shop", but also had serious and nationally effective songs like "Same Love".  Can't wait to see what is going to come next from this awesome guy.


Cancer
Cancer Power 

This was the best performance of the entire night... hands down.  Kendrick Lamar and lead singer of the Imagine Dragons Dan Reynolds (both Cancers) teamed up on this collaboration.  I was literally almost out of my seat until Taylor Swift ruined it for me.  Had I been there I would have taken a stick to the back of her knees.  And I digress... It was an INCREDIBLE performance!  All that Cancer emotion definitely came out in both of these guys.


Leo
Crippled Cowgirl & Lamp Shade
I was really enjoying Macklemore's performance with Queen Latifah and Mary Lambert until crippled cowgirl Madonna walked out and had to make it about her.  Classic Leo move.   Don't get me wrong, I love Madonna but it's time to bow out gracefully.  Bye byeeee.
Did anyone tell her that her skirt looked like a lamp shade?  I am going to guess no.  I am not a huge country fan, but I became a fan of Leo lady Kacey Musgraves last night when she beat Taylor Swift in two categories.  YESSSSSSSSS.  Suck it T-Swift.


Virgo
Bootyliciousness
Oh Beyonce, why you gotta be so perfect all the damn time?  She showed off her amazing body in this VERY VIRGO cream lace embroidered gown by Michael Costello.  The performance was... interesting.  I liked it better once her man got out there because they are just so cute together.  NOT a fan of the wet dog hair though.   Very very confused by the hair.
Why???

 Pink (also a Virgo) wore this red dress, and I have to say I am not a crazy fan of her the dress.  She even admitted herself that she rarely wears this color, and I can see why.  It just doesn't suit her Virgoesque personality at all.

I didn't mind her performance too much.  Takes a lot of talent to be a wanna be Cirque du Soleil performer.  I just want to see her do something else than fly around from the ceiling.  I know it's her thing, but I am over it.  NEEEEEEEEEEXT...


Libra
Love this Charmer
What is not to love about this guy?  He is a little guy with a HUGE voice.  I thought he should have won a lot more, but he was in some really tough categories.  He did win Best Pop Vocal album which is nothing to be scoffed at!


Scorpio
Broomtwerking & Seizures
My Scorpio Sisters kept it awfully dark this year!  I don't think Katy Perry could have picked a more Scorpio inspired dress than this Valentino Couture she changed into after her epic fail Broomtwerk performance.  All the way from the color, to the serpent, screams Scorpio.  Love it.

This performance however had me laughing my ass off.  I seriously was hoping waiting for one of those brooms to break in in half.  I LOVE THIS SONG, but this performance was dumb.  From the weird ass horse all the way to her cheesy costumes, everything just blew. 

Lorde was one of the big winners this year taking away Grammys in some of the hardest categories like Song of the Year.  I mean who doesn't like the song Royals?  I was really excited to see her perform until I became genuinely concerned when she started convulsing.  Did anyone else think she was having a seizure?  She also looked like she was having a pretty hard time with those speeches she had to give.  She is definitely Ozzy Osbourne and Elvira's love child.  'Nuff said...


Sagittarius
Gold Sippy Cup
Not did he just get one gold sippy cup for baby Blue, he got 3.  I loved his shout out to Beyonce and Blue last night, and his performance was great as well.  This whole "retirement" thing worked out well for you Jay.

Taylor Swift is a Sagittarius, but she annoyed me so much that she doesn't deserve a picture.  Go head bang with your piano some more.  Over you.
  

Capricorn & Aquarius
Robot Takeover & Bawl Fest
These guys cleaned house last night.  They won BOTH Record of the Year and Album of the Year.  This French duo Christo (Aquarius) and Bangalter (Capricorn) combine the quirkiness and futuristic feel that you get with an Aquarian, and then combine it with the hard working practicality of a  Capricorn.  Together they made a sound and an album that no one has ever heard before.  There is something so familiar, yet so brand new about it.

Capricorn John Legend sang his heart out to his wife Chrissy Teigan last night (huge fan of both of them), and I bawled.  If you watched him sing this and didn't get a tear in your eye, I am pretty sure you have no soul.  It was such a beautiful performance, and I LOVED that the camera caught her lovingly admiring him.  They are both so lucky to have each other.  What a voice, what a talent, what a man!


Pisces
Wedding Reception
 
I like Robin Thicke, but this performance was a snooze fest.  It was like he was performing at a wedding reception.  Booooorinngggggg.  Where's Miley when you need her?





Scorpio Woman - Virgo Man


I have been dreading writing this particular match up, but I think I am finally ready.  The last time I wrote about my ex was back in September about The Virgo Man.  However, after getting five requests for this combination in one month, I thought it was the universe telling me to put my big girl panties on and write the damn post.  This particular relationship was my most significant one.  Not because we had some magical love story that you read about in fairytales, but because we saved each other in so many ways.  I believe that in life you have multiple soul mates.  I don't believe you just get one and that is it.  I thought for a very long time that he was the one God put on the Earth for me to be with until the day I died, but he was actually put into my life for a very different reason.  He undoubtedly was there to change me, to help me grow, and to show me how much self worth I really do have after being cut down by the other men previously in my life.  He found me in my darkest time, and helped me rebuild myself.  I did the same for him in different ways.  I showed him true, undying, and passionate love, and reassured him that he deserves nothing less.  I taught him that he can stand on his own two feet because he is one of the most intelligent and beautiful men I have ever known.  We saw the beauty in each other more than anyone else had ever seen before.  Just because he didn't end up being my life partner does not discredit what we had in any way.  I am forever thankful of what he did for me, even though we weren't meant to be forever.

“People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that's what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.

A true soul mate is probably the most important person you'll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave.

A soul mates purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life, then introduce you to your spiritual master...” 


- Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love 

So here it goes...

Virgos are mental and Scorpios are emotional.  Meditate on that a while.  These two have so much to teach each other because of their inherit differences.  When these two meet, it is as though an angel met a beautiful and mysterious mortal.  A great example of this would be Hercules and Meg.  She is sexy and magnetizing, and he is innocent and inquisitive.  She will take his innocence as naivety, and he will take her negativity and want to show her light.  There is something in a Virgo's angelic head that says, "Don't do it." but there will be no helping him, he's hooked.  "Wonderboy" will lose his footing and even risk his immortality to save her from hell. This may be a little what it's like when a Virgo man meets his Scorpio...


She will fight the love that a Virgo man gives her, but in due time she will give in.  What he needs to understand is that Scorpios take time to truly open up to people.  What Scorpios need to understand is that Virgo men are picky when it comes to the one that they want, so if he chooses you feel special and know its REAL.


These two will be mental playmates.  Most Virgo men are wildly imaginative primarily because their ruling planet is Mercury.  This match will have no problem talking about anything from work, to what they ate an hour ago, to even about her pet duck Cotton that lives down at the local lake.  This is what will tie them together; their friendship.  He is pure and she is dark, so combined they bring evenness to each other.  As angelic as these men are, they are drawn to dark things.  They are inquisitive about things they don't understand.  He understands things a lot better when they are tangible, but she will be able to teach him the things that are so wonderfully intangible.  She will teach him things of love, he may even feel things with her he didn't know existed.  He concentrates on the day to day, but she will show him the big picture.  The most important thing she will have to teach him about is sex.

A Virgo man will think he has sex all figured out before he meets a Scorpio woman.  Oh my how you are wrong.  See, to a Virgo sex is a physical act.  It feels good physically.  What he may not understand, until he meets his Scorpio, is that there is also the emotional and spiritual side to it.  That is what makes it whole.  She must have a lot of patience while teaching him this because he is a perfectionist and will blame himself if the sex isn't what she expected, but once he understands they will have an undying sexual connection.  Just the sight of her will make him lose his train of thought.  Like a moth to the flame.  He won't be a huge fan of PDA, but over time he will learn that he can subtlety touch her hand to tell her he loves her without feeling embarrassed about it.  He will understand how to love with the body AND soul.


When it comes to being emotionally controlled, he will beat her in that department every time.  His purity of thought and simplicity will be something she will learn from him.  When they fight, she will go into a cold silence which will make him crazy.  He wants to understand everything at all times.  One thing he should realize is that a Scorpio woman's depth is something that no one will ever understand except for her and God.  Just be there for her like a rock, and she will come around.  She will have problems believing everything you say, because Scorpios are naturally suspicious creatures.  It can be exhausting at times always having to prove to someone how much you love them, but she is worth it.  Hang in there.  Look at her through the eyes of your heart, not the ones in your head and you will see her clearer.  However, if you wound this woman too much she will leave.  She may cry wolf a few times, but I promise you that once she has had enough, that is it.  If this happens you will be wondering why and wishing you could go back so do it right the first time.  She will give you plenty of warnings before she leaves, so I would take head to them if you want her to stick around.

One thing I would highly advise against Virgo doing is making empty promises to your Scorpio even if your intentions are pure.  Scorpios are loyal to a fault and follow through with their promises even if they aren't the most practical situations.  In a Scorpios world promises > practicality.  Remember the first thing I told you to meditate on?  Virgos are mental and Scorpios are emotional.  Think before you speak Virgo, because if you tell her you are going to do something and then don't follow through you will see that Scorpio temper which is never a pretty thing.  Her temper will scare him out of his pants the first time he sees it, but these two will have no problem talking their way out of their problems.  He is one hell of a communicator, and will be able to talk her off of any ledge.  Plus, they are more friends than anything.  Friends always make up.... well most of the time.

He will try to make her understand that his love for her is true and pure.  She will try to make him start loving with all of his heart and soul, and to make him understand that love conquers all.  Slow your mind Virgo and feel.  If you both do not reach the destination of where you want to get, I promise you that you will learn beautiful lessons from one another that you will never forget.  If you do make it, I envy you.  Enjoy your similarities and differences every day because you are a truly beautiful match.


 

 Healing is about remembering the good, recognizing the bad, and realizing that there is better.
