Astronomical signs also known as zodiacs are one of the most reliable elements that reflect and illustrate your personality traits. Astrology considers facts like the location of sun, planets and stars at the time of your birth to shed light on who you truly are and why you operate in certain ways.
Even though there’s no “real-life evidence” or scientific value of astrology, a big chunk of the world’s population (even highly-educated people) believes in the power of stars. There are several studies which say that our “date of birth” can influence our personality traits and the seasons do have an unexplained impact.
Your home is your go-to sanctuary – somewhere you will spend the majority of your time. Thus, you should give it zodiac- inspired décor touches to transform your abode into your true ally.
In our previous blog of this series, we explained how your zodiacs shape your décor choices. We will continue that with the next 4 signs on the list – Gemini, Leo, Virgo and Cancers. So, without further ado, let’s get started!
GEMINI (May 21 to June 20)
Gemini is an air sign, ruled by planet Mercury. Gemini personalities are creative, eclectic and naturally social butterflies. These lively traits help them breathe life into any occasion. Quirky, eye-catching and all things vibrant imitate their unique persona very well – they love yellow, sea green and gaudy hues of pink.
They adore social gatherings, parties and an environment fuelled by chit-chats. For that, they love an open floor layout with multiple seating options – they often mix fancy couches with chairs, recliners and pouffes. Their love for space can be seen through the edgy interiors, big windowpane and mirrors.
Their moods are fleeting, so they incorporate multi-functional elements with which they can play with. You will notice a fridge full of magnets or souvenir corners showcasing their travel stories.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)
Being the water sign, Cancerians are sensitive, often go with the flow and stay calm. They do not subscribe to things that are bold, loud and abstract. Pastel colours top their list – they love subtle tones with a vibrant touch such as lilac, blue, soothing white and grey. They are domestic so you will see them doing up their home a lot of time.
They are culinary experts, so they want their kitchen to be the focal point of the house. Because of the love they have for the family – they wish every part of the house to be comfortable. They adorn the living spaces with a sumptuous sofa with ottoman around.
With that, they are big on nostalgia – so their walls will be filled with photos of precious moments and the house will have antique décor pieces. They like to be connected to serene nature – so they have lots of flowers and plants inside the house.
LEO (July 23 to August 22)
The fiery and radiant virtues define the Leons very well. They love being the centre of attention and make sure their house mirrors it too. Rich and bold hues of red, orange, indigo or even black are the colours they like to display. Leons are obsessed with themselves so the mirror is one defining item of their décor.
They like modern ergonomic furniture and love to set up a home office with practical elements. They have a green thumb but they only add plants that require low maintenance. Adding a lot of statement pieces is something they treasure; they get arts which symbolize their luxurious and regal taste. They don’t like cluttered space, so their space will have well-thought-out components.
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22)
This earth sign Virgo is perfectionist, reserved and naturalist. They like to indulge earthy tones in their houses such as ice blue, jade green, peach, saffron and browns. They can binge-watch a series in one go and tackle the to-do list at work without a break – to support that spirit they prefer furniture with functionality not just looks.
They like Scandinavian couches with clean lines. They are a firm believer of energies so you will see candles, essential oil reed and aromatic sticks to enhance the mood of the area. They tend to add décor elements that are related to nature – wooden statement pieces, bonsai plants and cotton sheets. Virgos like to keep everything in an orderly manner.
As Indians, astrology plays a vital role in every aspect of our life decisions – be it a career, life partner, business and many more. Decorating a home by keeping the power of astrology in mind can bring positivity and happy vibes in the home.
