Your Next Fall Accessory, According To Your Zodiac Sign​​

When it's time to get to the money, my sun is CashApp, with a PayPal moon and Venmo rising.

Digging deep into your horoscope can reveal more than a glance at your day. Reading my birth chart uncovered how my sun sign, Cancer, and moon sign, Capricorn, affect every single part of my being on this planet. While it was eye-opening, astrology helped me uncover my patterns, values and decision-making.

Who would have guessed that the alignment of the stars even contribute to how you build your wardrobe? All signs – air, water, fire and earth – influence your choices, like why you choose a pinstripe suit over a bright-colored suit, for example. It's time to use your zodiac as a fashion resource. Keep reading to find your sign and the matching fall accessory we believe will inspire creativity.

An Aries & A Bold Jacket

Aries are fearless creatures so it makes sense that their fall accessory is a bold jacket. Angela's lime green snakeskin trench is exactly what the doctor prescribed this season. The pop of pink on the shoes keeps it funky and fresh.

The Taurus & The Lace-up Boots

One thing about a Taurus, they gon' overdress. So this season, overdress some lace-up booties high enough to have a conversation with Jesus. You can shop all types of styles, colors and fabrics to match whatever vibe you're giving.

The Gemini & The Sunglasses

Just because the weather is temperamental, that doesn't mean the sun won't be shining. And you, my Gemini friend, will need some stunner shades to block the sun rays. Let loose and buy a few pair to match all of your many aesthetics.

The Cancer & The Layered Necklaces

A Cancer's motto: Why rock one necklace when you can rock all of them? This sign lives for polished looks so add some sass to your outfit with a necklace combo. The key is mastering the lengths of each necklace; you want to allow each chain to have its own moment.

The Leo & The Leather Handbag

It's giving style goddess. And judging by the Fall 2020 runways, leather is the texture we should all be rocking. Your options are endless – woven, multi-colored, big or small. Take a note from Adee and make it the contrasting piece of your look.

The Virgo & The Jumpsuit

If you know a Virgo, you know they are loyal, down-to-earth humans who make everything look effortless. What's more effortless than a jumpsuit? They are one-hitter-quitters offering an utilitarian aesthetic ideal for cooler days. Pull the cool kids card by wearing the arms around your waist with a retro graphic tee.

The Libra & The Moto Jacket

Libras love to look good and that's exactly what you'll do when you cop this moto jacket. It isn't irony that Libra season falls on cuffing season every year because Libras are all about romance. So when you are flaunting your moto jacket, pair it with a flirty staple like a midi dress.

The Scorpio & The Micro Bag

It's time for Scorpios to apply their badass energy to every aspect of life. Most importantly, the style aspect. You can easily do that with a micro bag because it takes a real risk-taker to slay one of the boldest fashion trends ever.

The Sagittarius & The Headband

They should probably add the Sagittarius sign next to the definition of "born extra". Because you have no problem trying new things, you are going to look amazing in all the new embellished headbands. Protective style, wig or au naturale, this might be the answer to the unnerving question, "What do I do with my hair?"

The Capricorns & The Snakeskin

For Capricorns, it's about structure. We are challenging you to step outside your comfort zone and combine your structure with snakeskin in all of its forms. That looks like a monochromatic suit and snakeskin booties like our sis is modeling for us.

The Aquarius & The Clear Tote

Words to describe Aquariuses include whimsy, eccentric and witty. It's time to add one more progressive accessory to the arsenal. Clear handbags are perfectly playful by showing what's in the bag.

The Pisces & The Scarf

Pisces are known to view their fashion choices as art. That's why a mixed pattern scarf is going to be clutch for the water sign this season. You can opt to rock it around your neck or take it back to your roots by donning a daring turban. Gold tribal earrings will absolutely complete the look no matter your choice.

These days it seems that we’re all trying to heal from childhood wounds, and though I’m a big advocate for cutting people off – family included – I’ve come to learn how challenging that actually is. But also, it’s not always necessary if you have a parent who is open and committed to doing the healing work along with you, a mother, for example, who is receptive to her truth. But this also means you are receptive to the reality that parents are humans who often take cake crumbs from their parents and so on. It’s not to say that you have to accept piss-poor treatment because they’re human, but if any of us are going to embark upon a healing journey, we must acknowledge even the difficult truths.

When I was ten, my Sunday school teacher put on a brief performance in class that included some of the boys standing in front of the classroom while she stood in front of them holding a heart shaped box of chocolate. One by one, she tells each boy to come and bite a piece of candy and then place the remainder back into the box. After the last boy, she gave the box of now mangled chocolate over to the other Sunday school teacher — who happened to be her real husband — who made a comically puzzled face. She told us that the lesson to be gleaned from this was that if you give your heart away to too many people, once you find “the one,” that your heart would be too damaged. The lesson wasn’t explicitly about sex but the implication was clearly present.

That memory came back to me after a flier went viral last week, advertising an abstinence event titled The Close Your Legs Tour with the specific target demo of teen girls came across my Twitter timeline. The event was met with derision online. Writer, artist, and professor Ashon Crawley said: “We have to refuse shame. it is not yours to hold. legs open or not.” Writer and theologian Candice Marie Benbow said on her Twitter: “Any event where 12-17-year-old girls are being told to ‘keep their legs closed’ is a space where purity culture is being reinforced.”

“Purity culture,” as Benbow referenced, is a culture that teaches primarily girls and women that their value is to be found in their ability to stay chaste and “pure”–as in, non-sexual–for both God and their future husbands.

I grew up in an explicitly evangelical house and church, where I was taught virginity was the best gift a girl can hold on to until she got married. I fortunately never wore a purity ring or had a ceremony where I promised my father I wouldn’t have pre-marital sex. I certainly never even thought of having my hymen examined and the certificate handed over to my father on my wedding day as “proof” that I kept my promise. But the culture was always present. A few years after that chocolate-flavored indoctrination, I was introduced to the fabled car anecdote. “Boys don’t like girls who have been test-driven,” as it goes.

And I believed it for a long time. That to be loved and to be desired by men, it was only right for me to deny myself my own basic human desires, in the hopes of one day meeting a man that would fill all of my fantasies — romantically and sexually. Even if it meant denying my queerness, or even if it meant ignoring how being the only Black and fat girl in a predominantly white Christian space often had me watch all the white girls have their first boyfriends while I didn’t. Something they don’t tell you about purity culture – and that it took me years to learn and unlearn myself – is that there are bodies that are deemed inherently sinful and vulgar. That purity is about the desire to see girls and women shrink themselves, make themselves meek for men.

Purity culture isn’t unlike rape culture which tells young girls in so many ways that their worth can only be found through their bodies. Whether it be through promiscuity or chastity, young girls are instructed on what to do with their bodies before they’ve had time to figure themselves out, separate from a patriarchal lens. That their needs are secondary to that of the men and boys in their lives.

It took me a while —after leaving the church and unlearning the toxic ideals around purity culture rooted in anti-Blackness, fatphobia, heteropatriarchy, and queerphobia — to embrace my body, my sexuality, and my queerness as something that was not only not sinful or dirty, but actually in line with the vision God has over my life. Our bodies don't stop being our temples depending on who we do or who we don’t let in, and our worth isn’t dependent on the width of our legs at any given point.
