Fashion styles: How do the 4 seasons influence
In the end, the two main movements of the Earth are what determine the Fashion styles.
Rotation, the turn that the Earth makes on itself, sets the day and night, and with that defines the climate.
The Translation, which is the turn that the Earth makes around the Sun, in one year, creates the seasons.
The four seasons, by quadrants, define the fashion styles
Spring is an innocent, warm, serene season that responds to the first quadrant of the 12 signs of the Zodiac.
The first 3, Aries, Taurus, and Gemini, are like that, reminiscent of childhood and adolescence.
So is the weather at that time of year. And so are the fashion styles in those three months from March 22 to June 22.
At the Summer Solstice, we enter the second quadrant, of Cancer, Leo, and Virgo.
Now fashion becomes effervescent, bright, refreshing, like the fun spirit of the times.
When we enter the third group, of Libra, Scorpio, and Sagittarius, fashion becomes autumnal, grey, sober, like the season itself.
And at the Winter Solstice, when the Sun passes through Sagittarius, Capricorn, and Pisces, fashion turns dark, gloomy, discreet, wise.
More divisions, between 12, to define the fashion styles
We could divide the 12 signs into 6 groups of two, in pairs, where one is male and the next female, alternatively, to explain the ups and downs of Fashion and its "repercussion" on our way of dressing.
Likewise, there are two other ways of dividing the same number 12 that are highly consistent with the above: triplicities and quadruplicates, which are the way of understanding the 4 Elements and the 3 Qualities.
That is why each sign of the zodiac is a unique result of this multiplication, 3 times 4.
Briefly, the Elements, as we all know, are 4: Fire, Earth, Air, and Water. Depending on whether we belong to each of these elements, we will dress and wear shoes.
All our clothing style is defined by the colors and shapes that characterize these 4 elements.
But there is another factor, which are the Qualities, which are 3: Cardinal, Fixed, and Mutable.
In these qualities, we will see the energy, the dynamics, the daring with which we change our clothes and shoes.
It would be interesting if the owners of the Fashion Houses chose their Designers taking into account these factors.
Of course, a complete reading of the personality of each of these Designers can be achieved with the Interpretation of each Natal Astrological Chart.
The Natal Chart is like a photograph of the sky at the exact time and place they were born.
The entire personality of a Collection will be given by the tastes of these people, and the way they predict "the spirit of the times".
Nothing is alien to this circularity of the Cosmos.
There is a perfect resonance in the Universe and Fashion does not escape it.
These two physical and obvious movements of the Earth will determine the clothes and shoes that we are going to put on.
The emotional or creative, anticipatory component in the fashion.
But, where does the other factor come from, the emotional, the psychological, the creative?
We could say that of the third movement of the Earth, called Precession of the Equinoxes.
This third movement is not so obvious, because it is very slow.
The Earth takes 25,000 years to spin, like a top, on itself, wobble at the North Pole.
From that number, an astrology professional, Boris Cristoff, created the Periodic Table of History.
He simply divided that number by 12, many times, always by 12, and he saw how there is a magical cyclicality in history.
He analyzed what he called Eras, Suberas, MiniEras, MicroEras... Periods of 2,100 years, 175 years, 14 years and two months, and one year and two months, respectively.
That's where "the spirit of the times" that we mentioned in the previous article (link) comes from, that's where Fashion comes from, the divinatory reading that Fashion Designers do.
That is the essence of its creativity, its variety, and its predictability.
Fashion is no stranger to the cyclical Universe in which we live.
