Orange is the New Black!

Where’s Venus? Or should I say “wear" is Venus?

As planets circle the solar system, each passes through a zodiac sign. It then tends to “wear” the energy of that sign.

And in the case of Venus -- the planet that determines your aesthetic sense and what appeals to you -- reflect your own inner what-to-wear urge!

Perplexed as you stand before the sale rack? Whipsawed by indecision? No wonder, the month begins at the tail end of Venus in the flip-flopping sign of the Fish.

The sign of the mystic, the dreamer, the artist, Pisces is largely behind the spring trends towards gossamer fabrics and loose flowing pants and maxi dresses. With an affinity for the sea, you might also be drawn to one of the many nautical looks. Or the craze for seafoam green, as seen in makeup trends and the runway collections of so many designers, including Marc Jacobs and Carolina Herrera.

On May 4, though, Venus slips into something Aries. As arbiter of style, this dynamic sign demands a more vibrant color palette.  Strong color is energy, life bursting forth and doing so clearly with no ambiguities.

Which is why Aries adores dynamic, fiery orange. And as so many style commentators have pointed out this spring, “orange is the new black.” Not the TV show, but the color that now appears everywhere. So you just might feel more drawn to an intense crossing-guard vest-ish shade of it, be it head-to-toe or just a pop the hue in a new lipstick, clutch bag or sneakers.

The outer you should reflect the inner (and totally fabulous) you.  Or the best you you’re aspiring to be. On the heels of last month’s solar eclipse in Taurus, trends this month favor exploring the deeper side of Venus. Go within for some deep soul searching. Ask yourself: What are my true values? Does my outer appearance reflect them? What are my goals to be materially secure and happy? Does the way I present myself help or hinder my pursuit of them? Aim to pinpoint what truly makes you happy.

Best shopping strategy this month: Make uncertainty your ally. Be daring. Try on a frilly frock, pop art print, or whatever takes you out of your comfort zone and into unfamiliar style territory. Honor the Sun in Taurus and demand good value and only shop at stores with good return policies. That way, you can indulge a Venus-in-Aries impulse, but take back the items that ultimately just won’t work.
