Zodiac Signs can tell you a lot about the lifestyle choices of people…How? Read on!
Know the preferences of various zodiac signs. Find out which one makes the best shopping partner, and which one of them would make the best gym-buddy! Also in store are the preferences of various zodiac signs’ natives in terms of sports and health arena.
Rams’ choice for auto-mobiles mirrors their love for everything contemporary, fast and challenging – Aries love to ride a sports-bike or a sports-car. And, whatever they choose to drive, one thing is sure – their ‘mean-machine’ has to be snazzy! Aries exhibit similar tastes, when it comes to other things like clothes, accessories, jewels and footwear. They will always point at the most in-style and chic jewellery and apparels. So, it’s a wise idea to take them as shopping companions – they won’t be imposing, but will lend you excellent advice about latest places to shop and trendiest stuff to buy.
Materialistic Bulls like to firmly believe that their possessions, be it mundane items like garments or their much-loved auto-mobiles, are the best. They may not always be, though, yet Taureans won’t prefer knowing that. In the jewellery department, understated yet classy stuff rules, and yes it will be expensive. Think diamonds and timelessly chic pieces! If going shopping, take along a Bull, if you are looking for something really different. Their love for the ‘eccentric’ often makes them shop for stuff that’s truly class-apart. So, do take their advice when looking to stand apart in a crowd.
Ample socialising skills lend another excellent trait to Twins – their superior negotiation and bargaining skills. And, they are not the ones to join the ‘brandwagon’. No wonder, Geminis, especially women, make brilliant shopping companions for budget or street shopping trips. Junk jewellery and knick-knacks are not favoured items on their shopping list, though. In fact, otherwise fun loving Geminis are absolutely conventional, practical and utilitarian in the shopping department. So, they will also not let you go over-board! Their non-fussy preference for functional and economical reflects in their choice of vehicles too.
Most Cancers are not regular shoppers, but once they get into a mood for it (temperamental Crabs are driven by their whims), nothing stops them. Shopping is a liberating experience for them. They just wish to relish the experience when shopping. Shrewd beings, they, however, manage to get the best value out of their expenditure. Non-intrusive, excellent shopping partners, they will never remind you of how much you are spending, though. They like to shop for precious jewellery, and their collectibles resemble the treasures of the seas – pearls, precious stones rule. Not given to outward appearances, a Crab may not worry much about acquiring swanky cars or vehicles, though. Rather, they would be more than happy driving their cherished old bike or car to which they will be emotionally attached.
Unlike the former zodiac sign Cancer, the Lions are all for outward appearances. Given to a certain pomposity, Leos like to make bold, brazen style statements, and that applies to their choice of clothes, vehicles and jewellery. If their pocket permits, the Lions will love to become proud owners of a Lamborghini, a Rolls Royce, a Bentley or even a custom-made version of a vintage car. You’ll see them picking up a chunky neck-piece, a gleaming solitaire or a beaded bracelet, rather than a delicate pearl ring, when jewellery shopping. And, if they ask you to join them for a shopping trip, go ahead – you’ll love the courteous treatment and ebullient companionship. Reverse the situation, and the results may not be as exemplary, though!
Perfectionists to the core, Virgos are meticulous even when it comes to shopping. Here, they exhibit a certain duality, though. On one hand, they may simply pick up what they like without any prior planning, while on the other hand they may look for a bag/ watch at five different places, before zeroing in on the ‘One’. Appearances matter, but so does the ‘value’. Virgins will buy jewellery only in two cases – one, if it’s a good investment, and/ or second, if they really, really like it. No wonder, they have a special preference for precious-metal jewellery and precious stones. For imitation pieces, they go for semi-precious stones, chunky, psychedelic or ethnic look that’ll make them stand out. As for the vehicles, Virgins have a bizarre choice, especially if they can’t afford an expensive model they fancy. They will prefer to buy a remodelled version than use a run-of-the-mill budget car/ bike.
Suave, stylish and often well-turned out Libra natives, surprisingly, do not like to shop. A Libra male is most likely to despise his wife’s/ girlfriend’s shopping expeditions. Female Libra, on the other hand, may love to buy expensive and designer stuff, but more so for her intimate relations than her own self. However, you can consult them for tips on latest fashion and trends, and they shall happily oblige. And, don’t forget, they love receiving classy gifts – chic and delicate jewellery included. Buying or wearing jewellery, otherwise, isn’t a preference here. Any jewellery bought by them is merely for investment purposes. They carry the same attitude, when it comes to their auto-mobiles. In fact, they would rather have their vehicles passed on to them as a legacy.
Attractive and often quite poised, Scorpios have a distinct and definitive taste in clothes. They have set choices, and don’t like anyone giving them any advice on it. The wardrobe of a Scorpio woman is usually very tasteful, and may even be a cause of envy for many. Most Scorpios have an exquisite choice in both clothes and accessories, and many of them may be the proud owners of some of the finest and rarest jewellery pieces and/ or precious stones. Tried and tested brands rule, but not for the sake of exclusivity, but because they guarantee longevity and trust. No wonder, most Scorpio women worship shopping. However, many men of this sign are, more or less, indifferent to the shopping activity. However, they will readily pay the bill, without being grumpy or inquisitive about your purchases. They may not be very appreciative too!
If the ‘best-dressed’ Sun sign award was to be declared, a Sagittarius native would win hands down! The Archers have a knack to pick up just the ‘right’ objects at the ‘right’ time. An Archer woman is considered to be street-smart, as she would exactly know what to and from where to buy, and that includes jewellery. Great at bargaining skills, she’ll also often manage to buy at the most reasonable rates. On the other hand, Archer men are relatively laid-back, and would rather be patient onlookers, while you shop. Thus, all in all, it’s not a bad idea to take them as shopping companions, especially if their interests are as ardent (for shopping) as yours.
Practical and prudent, Goats, often, don’t fall in the category of impulsive shoppers. Both male and female Goats are patient shopping companions, and when in mood, they themselves don’t mind spending hours or even days (for bigger purchases) hunting for just the ‘right’ thing. That’s exactly what happens when it comes to bagging their ‘mean machine’ – expect a Goat to create so much fuss that you’ll be tired and bored. But, the end result will be so spectacular that you’ll be left jealous! However, on most other occasions, a Cappy is too caught up with his/ her work to bother slotting a separate time for shopping, so shopping becomes an extension of day’s work! In the jewellery department, the emphasis is on the minimal. Their love for tradition makes them go for timelessly classic or ethnic pieces, and yet it’s always elegant.
Aquarius is, by far, the best Sun sign to shop with. Not short on ideas and opinions, Water-Bearers like to go the whole hog, whenever they decide to shop! Their distinct style of dressing – rather, abstract and off-beat – shall also give you many shopping ideas. So, don/t hesitate in taking them along – they may appear too tied up/ self-centred initially – but, often, you won’t regret their company. When it comes to jewellery, they like to be close to the nature. So, precious stones, shells, cowries and pearls are preferred, and so are precious, gleaming metals. And, that’s exactly how they also like to keep their auto-mobiles – glistening and shimmering! Quite possessive about their dream machine, they are proud of their possession, and would love to flaunt it.
When it comes to shopping, impulsive is the word that best describes a Pisces native. They love to shop and gift, and are often quick to pick up items that appeal to their eyes. Nothing run-of-the-mill would be allowed to enter a Pisces domain, though. They are quite selective that way, and prefer to collect exquisite objects. Like, if it’s about jewellery, gold rules all the way! Whether it’s a trinket or a finely carved neck-piece, the gleam of gold with, maybe, a touch of their favourite blue precious stones, will be evident! As for their choice of auto-mobiles, not much can be said. They often tend to keep their vehicle, whichever one they have, neglected, and would not send it in wash or repair unless extremely necessary!
