The Handbag Universe
A just-right handbag feels like a gift from the heavens. When you find one that pleases you, life is grand!
There are so many choices at a huge range of price points that choosing a new bag can be overwhelming. Sun-sign astrology is about your personality, and ideally, your handbag must match your personality.
Aries: The Totally New Concept
“The bag from outer space,” with a uniquely sculpted shape, color, or graphic design, appeals to the Aries. It will likely be a trend-setting work of art. It might echo a classic shape, like the gym bag or bowling-ball bag, or, as above, the bangle. It will be crafted in a surprising way or with unheard-of materials.
Taurus: Only the Best, for Spiritual Reasons
Someone must be buying the handbags that cost thousands and are so envied by everyone on the planet that they are favorite targets of thieves.
Taurus will love and guard their Louis Vuitton/Gucci/Prada/Bottega Veneta/Chanel accessory. To ask a Taurus to surrender their valuables is like asking them to surrender their values!
A handsome clutch purse, lightweight and streamlined, satisfies the Gemini who likes a pick-up-and-go purse, not one requiring hauling up from the floor or shrugging onto the shoulder.
One hand on the purse at all times is a silent, clever signal to those around Gemini not to ask her to do anything requiring two hands. Geminis will have wonderfully glittery silver, pearly, or iridescent evening bags for walking those red carpets.
Cancer: A Heart So Big They Love All Shapes and Textures
This gentle heart admires the soft-sided pillow bag, moon bag, or a pouch of maple-colored suede with long fringes, or the hand-beaded reticule, usually bought at a cute little shop.
Because Cancers wander, they might choose a sizeable tote made of quilted fabric, carpet fabric, or denim for everyday convenience. Their compassion is the reason for their preference for fabric or suede.
Leo: My Designer Bag and Rippling Mane
Buy the eel-skin or python handbag for your Leo Sun or Leo ascendant. Those whom the gods have gifted with a Leo Sun or Leo ascendant prefer to receive their (costly, exotic) handbags as tributes and presents from their mates or entourage.
Gold-tone only, please. The Leo’s purse must draw attention to itself and stun. Scuffed, stretched, or worn purses are not an old friend to Leo. They are chucked or given to charity.
Virgo: Better Bags When I'm With Better People
A Virgo purse is functional, earthy, and maybe washable. Young Virgo chooses a brand-name purse, but mature Virgo will avoid accessories with the manufacturer’s name or initials on them.
Liking accessories but owning few, Virgo usually directs their efforts elsewhere, where they really count, toward their health and welfare, job, community, and children. Virgo probably carries a separate nylon bag holding workout clothes or books, a water bottle, and a snack.
Libra: The Day I Wore Everything Because I Couldn't Decide
Much more than the purse itself, Libra cares about the money or credit cards in it or whom they're going to see. Of all zodiac signs, it's Libra who thinks least about having an impressive handbag.
Libra is the only real market for the high-priced wristlet or mini-bag, otherwise tending to choose mid-priced purses. Their favorites are sometimes several years old. In summer, Libra prefers a white purse.
Scorpio: Do Not Mess With My Handbag
Scorpio wants a deep, dark, thoroughly opaque, reasonably priced handbag that can hide what’s in it: Pop-Tarts (Scorpio thinks sweets are sinful and tends not to indulge in them publicly), energy bars, sex toys, cigarettes, purse-sized firearms, or makeup.
Like Virgos, Scorpios freak out if you touch or reach into their handbags; their purses are very private property. For this reason, Scorpio likes bags with extra security, such as bags that zip closed and then buckle or cross-body bags. Drawstring closure? Never! Their secret stuff might fall out!
Sagittarius: Grab and Go
A designer bag is nice if Sagittarius can get it at a discount. Sagittarians are the “grab and go” type. What they care about is the destination, not their luggage or the fashion police.
They could care less about owning elegant accessories, but they might shun leather bags or belts and choose vegan alternatives instead. They gravitate toward handmade, imported items because of their philosophy.
Capricorn: Pure Natural Authentic Everything
If you are a Sun Capricorn or Capricorn is prominent in your chart, your favored bag, or bags (often carrying more than one), must announce your presence and status, always and naturally high-class.
Capricorns please themselves first. There's elegance in knowing one's own name is enough. Topstitching -- too crude! Capricorn thinks Nature provides the finest clothes and accessories.
Aquarius: I Like It the Same, but Different
After giving up backpacks, the Aquarian trademark, the Aquarian will choose practical medium-sized leather totes. After finding a good one, it will be purchased in several, usually electric, colors.
Heavy or lumpy purses interfere with the Aquarian lightning-bolt lifestyle, so Aqua likes angular bags like Dooney & Burke's Lexington. Zipper closures are favored; fumbling with buckles is not Aqua. Very secretly, Aqua admires certain Balenciaga bags.
Pisces: Beauty Has No Boundaries
The “hobo-style” bag appeals to Pisces just because it’s called a “hobo-style” bag -- they are in no rush yet on the move. Or they choose “bucket”-style handbags because in this life anything can happen: Pisceans are magnets for souvenirs and mementos.
A flat-bottomed purse or packable to stand alone is favored because Pisces can then park it on the floors of jazz clubs, trolleys, places of worship, and yoga studios.
