This is a repost from several months ago. For some reason this story is recirculating. The media has been talking about this as if its new news. I think it is safe to say there will be no reshuffling of the zodiac signs we have become accustomed to because of the discovery of ophiuchus or the 13th sign in the zodiac..
Your whole life you think you are a Leo. If you believe in designing according to where the sun's position was along the zodiac path the day you were born, you gravitate towards these colors:
You love gold and sheen ( I never met a paillette I didn't like). You live in grand style, value excellence, quality, and LOVE drama in design. Leos have a creative flair that is reflected in their homes and the way they entertain; therefore making them good hostesses. They love hides and animal prints for their exoticism. Warmth is most definitely conveyed! Hello, have you met me?
Then all the sudden astronomers tell us that the Earth's alignment has shifted because of the moon's gravitational pull after centuries and has altered the signs. WHAT?? It can't be, I'm not a Cancer; because if you're a Cancer, these are your colors:
Nostalgia defines this sign's personality. Cancers are homebodies (which I most certainly am not). They like the protection of home, it is their retreat. I think that applies to everyone, though. They like soft muted colors, functionality, a casual, comfy environment. OK, I get all that but- Cancers like large entertaining spaces, they are conservative in style, and very attached to sentimental belongings and gifts from others. Cancers use curves in their decor, and they are control freaks and perfectionists (not my words but I have been accused of both). Part of my identity is rooted in the belief that I am a Leo, so I am just staying a Leo! And what's with the new sign they added?
How do you know how to design for Ophiuchus, the serpent barer? Too hell with that!
