Fashion Astrology – Cancer Style And Tartan…

Did you know that different prints, patterns, style and even fabrics are tied with different zodiac signs?

Tartan is particularly associated with Scotland, and as such is very much a Cancerian pattern.

Tartan trends are certified Cancer!

Tartan, So Scottish! So Stylish For Cancer…

Scotland is a country associated with Cancer, characterised by it’s clans and communities (tribes of families), comfort food (creamy white oatmeal – a pot of porridge on the stove, or mince and tatties – fluffy white potatoes!) and harbours.

Different things have astrological rulership, and ports, lighthouses, places offering safety and refuge for the weary, pubs and inns are all governed by the Cancer Zodiac sign. This is why you’ll often find that the people working in hospitality or running restaurants are often Cancer, or the cooks will be Cancer. It takes a degree of human awareness, which is a skill owned by the water signs, Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces.

Cancer is the most personable and notoriously caring of these signs, the true mother hen, hence a big tartan blanket is a beautiful gift, and the print looks divine on Cancers!

The very fabric of the land and the criss-crossed horizontal and vertical bands woven in multiple colours identifies a family. Cancer is often associated with the fourth house in astrology, which is literally our home or surrounding spaces, our ancestry and those we consider family – our tribe.

You’ll notice the collection is crammed with the colour cream too, with Chanel’s signature pearls all over the place.

Why does this even matter? Well, in August 2013 Jupiter was joined by Mars and Mercury, sailing into fall with a heavy dose of Cancer energy! The north node was in fellow Scorpio with Saturn.
