Could your astrological sign make you suited to a career in fashion?
As ridiculous as that may sound, Anna Wintour, Robbie Myers, Glenda Bailey, Calvin Klein, Zac Posen, Edith Head, Emilio Pucci, Kelly Cutrone, Peter Lindbergh, Alexa Chung, Isabella Blow, Daphne Guinness, Chloe Sevigny, Lauren Hutton, Jean Shrimpton and Helmut Newton are just a few of the many editors, designers, photographers and style icons who were born under the sign of Scorpio. These folks are successful, powerful, iconic and we had a hunch that it wasn’t just a coincidence.
I happen to be a Scorpio myself….
Scorpios tend to not only have great business sense, but also an ability to marry business with art. Scorpio does amazing research; they keep digging.”
In the magazine world, a Scorpio will never show a beautiful item that cannot be bought. They’re going to be practical enough to know the reader wants to buy it and they’ll do their due diligence to make sure it’s available.
Another reason for Scorpio fashion success? Discretion. “They’re probably privy to a lot of business strategy and they’re meeting with a wide range of designers and they really have to partition what they know about each designer, so that’s probably one of the reasons for their amazing success.”
So we know what Scorpios are like in their careers, but why are they all so stylish? It’s an affinity for good tailoring, refinement and elegance paired with a need to stay true to their own style. When they choose a style it has to fit them…they’re a water sign, so they’re extremely intuitive and they may look very current and they are, but it always has to fit their personality. This is not the sign that want to attract attention for any reason other than elegance.
So, are Scorpios pre-destined for fashion industry success? Clearly, that’s open to a lot of interpretation and obviously depends on whether or not you believe in astrology at all. Plus, there are plenty of non-Scorpios making waves in fashion. Still, personality (some of which is thought by many to be ruled by one’s astrological sign) can have a lot to do with career choice and it’s an interesting thought.
