Aesthetics For The 12 Signs Of The Zodiac…
I often wonder what astrology would look like in its purest form, twelve women representing the beauty of the zodiac signs.
You see we’re a mix of many different factors, not simply our sun sign!
With many different planets and elements in astrology it’s not only the star at the centre of our solar system that influences your beauty style. The feminine energies of the moon and planet Venus have some sway too… And not forgetting your rising sign.
I’ve selected stars whose zodiac beauty really shines through, curating twelve zodiac beauty styles to consider, astrology aesthetics from Aries to Pisces. These celebrities have several planets in the named constellation, boosting their star power!
The Aries look can be quite striking, with defined features and a strong, often dark brow. Though they can have a bit of a baby face, their look is still quite angular. As a Mars-ruled sign, Aries people can have a reddish complexion, or get red-faced when they’re hot under the collar! Tip for Aries? Define your brow, especially if its been over-plucked – pencil in a beautiful arch.
My Aries Beauty Star… Rooney Mara boasts several planets in Aries including her Sun, Moon, Venus and Mercury – that’s a lot of Aries star power! Looking at Rooney shows us a strong Aries aesthetic, with her bold, plucky attitude – her gaze looks poised for action!

Taurean women appear both strong and soft simultaneously.
This is an elegant sign with a determined inner reserve. Those born under the Bull will often have a grounded countenance coupled with grace and femininity. Their neck can appear particularly elegant or show off their strength more so with a stocky build. As a Venus-ruled sign they will be sensitive to smell, touch and all aesthetics, finding it easy to produce a subtle make-up look. Taurus Tip? Let your natural beauty show, don’t over-do your slap, you don’t need to!
My Taurus Beauty Star… Jessica Alba has several planets in Taurus including her Sun, Mercury and Venus, and looking at this star really shows us the style of Taurean beauty at its best. She emanates a happy, feminine beauty.

Kirsten Dunst, Melinda Clarke, Miranda Cosgrove and Lena Dunham all have their Sun, Mercury and Midheaven in Taurus. Donatella Versace is Taurus rising with Sun, Mercury in Taurus, Ann-Margret has Sun, Venus and Moon in Taurus, and although Carmen Dell’Orefice has a Gemini Sun, she’s strongly Tauro with Mercury, Venus and Midheaven all in the sign of the Bull.
The Gemini look is dynamic and exciting! Those with planets in the constellation of the Twins can quite literally sparkle. Their mischievous twinkling eyes capture the expression of their interested and curious Mercury-ruled mind. Gemini’s Tip? Keep it bright and shiny – set off your look with something that sparkles.
My Gemini Beauty Star… Heidi Klum boasts several planets in Gemini including her Sun, Moon, Venus and Mercury – that’s a lot of Gemini star power! Looking at Heidi shows us a strong Gemini aesthetic – it’s all in her eyes, excited and alive with curiosity, set off brightly with light white eye make-up. Her hair is pulled back on one side adding a youthful vibe and her jewellery and hair accessory is twinkling too!

The Cancer look is soft and feminine, with big, soulful, watery eyes. Cancer is the only sign to be ruled by the moon and those people that are strongly Cancerian can appear lunar-like, reflecting the rounded appearance of our satellite. Cancer people can also look like ‘the man in the moon’, with a pointed nose! Tip for Cancer chicks? Emphasise your gorgeous eyes with grey shadows.
My Cancer Beauty Star… Anna Friel has several planets in Cancer including her Sun, Venus and Mercury, and her soft, romantic, faraway gaze shows us the sentiment of Cancer, wonderfully.

The Leo look is cat-like, and those people with planets in the constellation of the Lion can quite literally look feline!
Their hair is often a striking style or cut, and will be noticeable however it’s worn. They hold their head high, proudly with self assurance and poise. Leo’s beauty advice – wear your hair even bigger..

Virgo is the sweet Maiden, and only one of a few human beings that appear in the zodiac to represent the signs. People with Virgo strong in their chart appear delicate, with neat, almost tidy features! I say that Virgo is the virtuous sign as they seem so feminine and demure. Virgo’s Tip? Keep it clean, avoid the slovenly tag.
My Virgo Beauty Star… Blake Lively boasts several planets in Virgo including her Sun, Moon, Venus and Mercury – that’s a lot of Virgo don’t you know! Blake demonstrates a strong Virgoan aesthetic, with a wholesome look, healthy glow and neat, perhaps perfect feminine features!

Venusian Libra is the civilised sign represented by the Scales and they say that those born under this sign have particularly symmetrical, balanced, faces and features. Ruled by beauty planet, Venus, those born under Libra or those with lots of Libra in their chart will have a natural affinity with fashion and fairness – they just get it right. Tip? Don’t over-do the sugary sweetness, add a little dirt, I mean Earth here and there!
My Libra Beauty Star… Kate Winslet is Libra Rising with her Sun, Mercury and Moon in the sign too – that’s a lot of Libra! No wonder she likes getting married so much… Kate exemplifies Librian qualities of grace with a calm, gentle poise.

Singer Tiffany and Hollywood star Rita Hayworth are both examples of Sun, Mercury, and Venus in Libra, while Gwen Stefani, Catherine Zeta Jones and Brigitte Bardot have their Sun, Mercury and Midheaven in the sign of the Scales.
The Scorpio look is somewhat sultry, as this sign is reserved, reclusive, secretive and not typically one to step into the limelight. Their beauty style reflects this, with blended make-up styles, such as smoky eyes and a stained lip, working well for them. Their aura naturally gives off an air of privacy, their gaze says “Stay back! Until I say you can proceed…” They are strong-bodied, stealthy, powerful people. Tip for Scorpio? Keep it mysterious, you’re not the frosted glitter gloss fan and that’s just fine.
My Scorpio Beauty Star… Chloë Sevigny boasts several planets in Scorpio including her Sun, Moon, Venus and Mercury, even more interesting is that Chloë is Scorpio rising. All her Scorpio planets sit in her first house of appearances and first impressions. Looking at this star offers a real indication of the Scorp aesthetic – heavy lids and an intense gaze, but also a resilientness is conveyed. Very Scorp.

Sagittarius is the fresh-faced sign with a bounce in her step. Her Mode is Mutable, and her element is fire – she represents moving passions in the zodiac, which gives her an adventurous spirit and roaming look in her eye – she’s got her sights set on Sagittarius soil far, far away! They say that Sagg can look a little horse like, with long faces and flyaway tails of hair! Tip for Sagg is to sometimes slow down! Take a moment out and do a once over before bounding out the door…
My Sagittarius Beauty Star… Christina Aguilera boasts several planets in Sagittarius including her Sun, Moon, Venus and Mercury – that’s a lot of Saggy stars! Fond of dressing up in fun, even outrageous outfits, Christina is true to Sagg style in that she’s a risk taker, bold, even a little brash.

Capricorn women can appear reserved – not aloof but serious, considered and conservative. This Saturn-ruled sign veers towards a stoic look, with dark, understated styles, and make-up that’s always appropriate. As a Cardinal Earth sign they’re ambitious empire builders – risk takers they’re not, that goes for their beauty style too… Tip for Cappy? Lighten up, relax, take a risk.
My Capricorn Beauty Star… Zooey Deschanel boasts several planets in Capricon including her Sun, Moon, Venus and Mercury – that’s a lot of Capricorn! She does express her dreamy Venus in Pisces too, but mainly we can see the practical nature of the Goat on show.

Aquarius is the unusual character in the zodiac with a zany and off the wall aesthetic. The archetype of Aquarius likes to be different, with quirks that can often come across in their beauty style. People with strong Aqua often have heart shaped faces with a strong jaw, and wear an expression that says they’re away with the fairies! Tip for Aquarius? Celebrate your uniqueness with small touches that make you stand out – nothing’s too strange…
My Aquarius Beauty Star… Chloë Moretz boasts several planets in Aquarius including her Sun, Venus and Mercury – that’s an Aqua babe! Although her Moon’s in Aries, looking at Chloë shows us a strong Aquarius aesthetic, facially she’s is very Aquarian and her movie roles allow her to rock some very different guises!
More Stars With A Strong Aquarius Look…
Charlotte Rampling is an excellent example of Aquarius beauty, with Aquarius rising, and Sun, Moon and Venus in the sign of the Water Bearer. Tiffani-Amber Thiessen is Sun, Moon, Mercury and Venus in Aquarius, and Pisces Christine Keeler has an Aquarius Mercury and Venus in her chart alongside an Aqua Midheaven. Paris Hilton has Sun, Venus and Mercury in Aquarius.
Neptune-ruled Pisces is a water sign and as such, can appear water-logged, with a fleshy softness to their appearance or very watery eyes… Those born under this sign have truly gorgeous hair, which will either be thick, shiny and glossy or tumble town in waves. The body part of Pisces is the feet (– or fins), which may be shaped unusually that cause them to trip over their toes! Artistically minded, the Pisces woman will veer towards muted tones across her fashion and beauty style, that reflect the shades of the sea, so soft grey or lavender eye-shadows suit. The Pisces beauty tip is to keep it soft and serene, don’t try to fence yourself in, in fashion or your creativity!
My Pisces Beauty Star… Rachel Weisz will often wear the expression of a Pisces, a faraway look in her eyes – she’s dreamy! This star has her key personal planets in the sign of Pisces – the Sun, Moon, Venus and Mercury.
