My aunt is an astrologer. She has gotten paid for doing charts in the past, but for the most part she does it because she enjoys it. I personally don’t “believe” in astrology anymore, but I grew up with her teaching me things about it, so I know very well my sun sign (Pisces), my moon (Sagittarius) and my rising sign (Capricorn). I also happen to know that I have both Mercury and Venus in Aquarius. While I may no longer believe it, I am amused by the description for Mercury in Aquarius because it does sound a lot like me:
“You tend to be very opinionated — you have strongly felt notions about things and are quite vocal about expressing and defending them. Yet you are also an original thinker — you enjoy shocking others with your offbeat, original thoughts. You appreciate and need mental and intellectual stimulation. Your judgment is usually fair and impartial — you can be a good critic because you can remain objective and unemotional about most things.”
At any rate, you can get a free chart here if you so desire.
At the Zodiac event in SL, they are currently set up for Aquarius through February 13th. Aquarius is the “water bearer,” and this Valentina E. Couture dress reminded me of flowing water, so I decided I wanted a waterfall in the background. I visited the lovely Chakryn Forest for just such a spot. Since Aquarius is an air sign, I decided to just hover near the water. The gorgeous hair is Alice Project, also for Zodiac (it even has a barrette option in the symbol for Aquarius).
Then I got artistic. I wasn’t going to blog this pic, but I’ve been overwhelmed by the positive response and kind comments this pic has received. I don’t tend to do anything to “artsy” because I’m trying to strike a balance as a (primarily) fashion blogger. I like interesting pictures, but I still want the clothing and other items to be fairly easily visible. Anyway, this pic is the result of my playing around with Wind Lighting. I just loved how dramatic it was. I did do some post-processing, but very little. Mainly just some softening and cropping.
I wanted to also take a more simple photo to show off my skin from Essences.This is also from Zodiac, and I will be honest… I like freckles on other people, but usually don’t like them on me. This skin, however, was just SO damn cute. I had to have it! My eyes are another new pair from the Eternal series at IKON. I’ve been doing a lot of brown shades lately. I’ve decided I really like brown eyes with my red hair. This shade – Mahogany – is so rich and has so much depth. I loved them right away.
I’m really excited for the next round of Zodiac. I can’t wait to see what “my” sign has to offer! But be sure to check out this round, because as you can see there’s plenty of gorgeous to be had right now!
