Appearance

I want to be able to spot someone based on their chart. I would have to account for ethnic differences, considering my Ascendant is in a dark degree in the dark sign of Capricorn and I'm only dark for a Polish person (I'm not actually Polish but a real Polish person thought I was from how I look,) but I mean besides that. I've gotten a lot of "your Moon is in Cancer so you have a round, soft, moon-like face" when actually I have a square jaw. I can eliminate stupid Cancer Moon stereotypes, but that doesn't really do a thing in letting me recognize people based on their charts.

Re: Appearance

Why would you look to the Moon for physical appearance anyways?

Moon is the face, but I know few Moon in Cancers who have sharp faces,so.. Look at the aspects of the Moon,VERY important.

Then, of course, ASC and the planets in the 1st. Ruler of the asc.

Then the sun sign. Sometimes MC is also pertinent to the image. And of course genes and ethnicity are above this all.

Re: Appearance

I thought Asc ruled the face and head. Moon is supposed to rule the soul. Mine isn't in the 1st house. It's also under nasty aspects. I like it having the aspects it has for some reason.

Re: Appearance

Generally, it is said that the ascendant and planets within the 1st house give the physical qualities, particularly of the head and face.

I suspect that there's complicating factors that must muddy the waters.

Asc is the BODY. Moon the face 'cause the face (with an accent on the expression,eyes) is the reflection of the soul .

Talking Re: Appearance

It's been often said Aquarians have the bright blue eyes and the lucky color for us is teal or turquoise, the color of our ruling planet Uranus, and water is associated with shades or hues of blues (rhymes) which the logo of Aquarius stands for. Blue eyes are scientifically a dominant gene from parents such as my Mom have blue eyes herself, so does my bro and my nephew...and also dark brown/black hair is dominant from both my parents. To have ancestries from warmer climates or indigenous to the Americas produced darker hair and tan-beige (but still white) skin tones (melanin levels in human skin from living in tropics or deserts for ages), but blue eyed people in southern latitudes need to protect their eyes alot more.

Re: Appearance

I have dark-ish brown eyes. Regular blue has never been my favorite color. Teal (especially with black and/or purple) was my favorite color for a short while. I still like it but it's not my favorite. Generally my favorite colors are metallic colors, purple, black, and red. Colors are pretty relevant to appearance because I tend to wear my favorite colors, so you're not off-topic.

Re: Appearance

The Saturn signs both love dark colors. I know a lot of Capricorns and Aquarians with purple and black as favorite colors.

As for what makes up the body, I generally find whichever is strongest amongst the AC, Sun, and Moon gives most to the general makeup of the native. But whatever aspects the AC in some way gives something. I've been told I look like a Leo, but I got Mars scarring and a Libra rear...

Re: Appearance

I was thinking Aquarius would (or might) like dark colors because of Saturn. I think the Moon and Mercury (and Uranus since it's like Mercury) like shiny things. Red is Mars, even though Mars is actually orange-colored (bleh) and not red.

My Asc has so many aspects I have no idea what I'm supposed to look like :P According to dr. farr's degree list Neptune doesn't do anything, but that still leaves 5 rising planets for me to deal with in interpretation.

Closer aspects are more affective. I'd tell you which ones myself but that morinus chart in your profile is so hard to read, especially with the outers

Re: Appearance

Most of them are parallels. Close or not, a rising aspect is a rising aspect (if it's actually at the angles, aka conjunct or parallel. This doesn't apply to squares, trines, etc.) Just enter my birth data on astro.com because it's hard to upload parallels from there. I'll do something about my chart soon.

Re: Appearance

Astrologer50, Much of astrology is coincidental and should be used more for entertaining value, but there's plenty of good evidence on astrological moves of planets and stars could somewhat influence our lives on earth.

My brother (a Taurus alike our Mom) and nephew are blonde/brown haired, due to his kid's mother who happens to be Gemini. However, my Dad is a Sagittarius his firstborn (my half-sister) is also a Sagittarian and her Mom is a Pisces, all are browne or bruin haired. I thought earth signs have more blondish earthy colors such as Taurus, but not Sagittarius and Pisces.

Cancerians are said to love green or blue, so does Aquarians...and black is the color of Scorpio, but what about the gothic melancholic Capricornians? I suppose Aries, Leo & Sagittarius being fire signs love reds and oranges.

I can't decide who's a bigger expert or has more accuracy, but astrology is split to branches, schools and varieties: take the eastern or Sidereal, Vedic/Indian and this talk of the southern hemispheric types for example.

Back to talking about signs and influential colors: Pisceans are known for tremendous amounts of luck, and the color white identifies them the most. I thought Gemini and Cancer have grey or silver for their lucky colors.

I have yet to find out the colors of Virgo and Libra, something in the lines of pink or purple, for flowers and fruits. Mercury and Venus which rules the planets: Mercury over Gemini and Virgo, and Libra over Taurus and Libra, are said to been the god or goddess of love, flowers and plant life.

I checked the colors of Sagittarius and Capricorn are either blue or purple. The blues affect Capricorn, while purples affect Sagittarius. Brown is more for Aries or Virgo, dark green for Taurus and yellow/gold for Leo or Libra.

I think colors have nothing to do with signs and a lot more to do with planets. This list is my guess:

Sun - Gold, bright neon colors
Moon - Warm browns/other warm colors (because the Moon rules feelings and feeling people like warm colors)
Mercury - Multi-color, metallic colors
Venus - Green, yellow, light purple and pink
Mars - Red, orange
Jupiter - White
Saturn - Black, cold colors (Saturn rules austerity even though sometimes the Moon oddly gets cold colors attributed to it :/)
Uranus - Bright blue?
Neptune - Dark blue?
