Black Velvet

Childhood memories are vivid, almost indescribable in their detail, and impossible to forget. A Christmas memory I have is that of a black velvet dress  a family friend gave to me for my seventh Christmas.

Astrostyle! Fashion Inspiration from Your Sign

Welcome to a new series on the Tiki Tiki written by Sue Valencia, where we will be talking about your Astrostyle — dressing according to your Rising Horoscope Sign, which some believe will bring you a little bit more luck. And couldn’t we all use a little more fortuna? Aries is first.

So, it is true or false that you will be luckier if you dress according to your horoscope sign? I don’t know! But, it has worked for me, and I do find some pretty good astro-logic in such statement. Let’s take a look, shall we?

The Rising Sign, or Ascendant, is the Zodiac Sign that was rising through the horizon at the time of your birth. What determines your Rising Sign (RS) is the place, date, and time of birth. That’s why it’s so important to know your time of birth as exact as possible!

In case you don´t know your Rising Sign you can create your own chart. It’s free and easy to do if you have your time of birth with you. If you get lost, you can always e-mail me and ask for help!

Moving on… just as the RS was making an entrance through the horizon when you were born, it also gives us some clues as to how it is that we make our entrances or start things in life. It´s the sign that marks our first beginning, a.k.a. our birth!

The Rising Sign also gives us information about those first impressions we make when we first come into a place, or meet someone. See? The RS is all about “firsts,” it’s the one that says “Me First!”

Of course, after those first impressions, and once people get to know us a little better, they find out we are so much more than the clothes we choose to wear, the style we have or even the gestures we make.

As you can now see, dressing accordingly to your RS is just a way to bring together all the little parts that conform YOU. It’s the first step towards bringing harmony to your whole being. Try it out and let me know if you feel the difference!

Watch the video to find out more about Aries Rising and I’d love to hear your thoughts and comments.

Happy astrostyling and check soon for the next Astrostyle tip.

    I’m Aries but not sure about Aries rising. Can’t remember what time I was born…maybe I’ll have to check my baby book.

    As for the video – I definitely prefer jeans and backpacks/messenger bags/bags with long straps to sling across the body – and though I don’t have an athletic body, I am very strong. The athletic body is in there somewhere jijiji…

    Not so sure about the bright colors. I do have a few bright colors in my wardrobe – reds, coral, teal, parrot green – but that’s usually a secondary color paired with black or charcoal.

    And you’re right – dresses are DEFINITELY not for me. I’ve gotten a little more feminine as I’ve gotten older, so I give them a try once in awhile but they never feel “me” :)

      You are an absolute Aries amiga! And it would really complete the picture for you if you knew your Rising Sign ;)
      I bet bright colors look great on you, even without the dark ones. Aries are born with fuego en la sangre! ;)
      The key word for the Arian body is strong, more than athletic, you were right on with that one!
      If you find out your TOB you can go to astro.com, put all your info in and just make sure you choose the “placidus” in the House System options (it it´s too much just DM me!)
      Thank you for reading Traaaysi!!!
