Taurus April 20 – May 20

I apologize for not getting the Taurus astrology post up on time.  I have taken on a new project that is very time consuming.  I am making three afghans for three of my great grandaughters to be wedding gifts when the time comes.  Every other one of my children and grandchildren have a hand made afghan and somehow I neglected these three.  I don’t see them very often, but their mother sends pictures.  They are still in their teens so I may have the time to get them made.  However as I grow older I realize I must do this now or it won’t be possible later.  This project is gigantic, with selecting the design, getting the yarn and making over 300 motifs and putting them together.  I think it will take about a year to complete all three.

However I do not like to ignore my readers who seem to appreciate reading about their zodiac signs.  So here is a bit of astrology for Taurus, the bull.

Taurus – April 20 – May 21

Taurus has immense perseverance, even when others have given up, Taurus rages on.  Taurus is not fond of change.  They need order in their life and get very anxious when it is not.  Taurus does not express their feelings openly and their inner self is contained and secretive.  They are very sensitive and like decorations, color and anything that appeals to their senses.

Taurus ladies should take a look at the variety of color and style in my two jewelry shops to find just the right original, handmade accessory for their wardrobe.  The shops can be found at http:www.etsy.com/shop/mizmlu and www.jewelryalamode.com

Thank you for reading my astrology postings and hope you enjoy the selection  of inexpensive jewelry that I have created for you.



Aires- March 21- April 19
Aires, the first sign of the Zodiak is a fire sign. They like to be first. They are impulsive and easily provoked. They thrive on competition. They are independent, generous, optimistic, enthusiastic and courageous. They bring excitement into other’s lives.
Surround your Aires self with the colors that are best for you such as red, hot pink and yellow. You’ll find several in my Etsy shop at www.etsy.com/shop/mizmlu and www.jewelryalamode.com

Pisces- Feb. 19-Mar. 20

Pisces is very charming, inspirational and mystical, also similar to the beautiful creek of which artists paint pictures. The Pisces personality is very hard to pin down.  Pisces are compassionate, adaptable, accepting, devoted and imaginative, but also very mysterious and elusive. Pisces is the most spiritual and most sensitive of all the zodiac signs. Pisces colors are marine tones- purple, violet, amethyst, sea-green, turquoise.

Aquarius-January 20-February 18

Aquarius is an air sign, the most social of the signs. They have a humanitarian outlook and a magical, electric aura. They are clever, witty, inventive, and original. They are constantly after what is new. They are also stubborn and sometime rebellious.
When considering the colors most appropriate to this sign think of neon rainbow colors, electric and ultramarine blue, green, turquoise and violet.
You will find many varities of these colors in jewelry at my Etsy shop, http://mizmlu.etsy.com or my new shop, http://jewelryalamode.com which has over 100 necklaces in every color under the sun.


Capricorn – December 22-January 19

Capricorn is an Earth sign, so expect them to be down to earth. Capricorn will be your strong friend, they will always be there to help and expect nothing in return. They are excellent organizers and are very creative. They evaluate everything and don’t take daring chances without weighing all the advantages and disadvantages. Their most important need is security. Think of Capricorn colors as neutral and earthy tones such as black, grey, violet, and dark brown.
My etsy shop at mizmlu.etsy.com has many choices in these colors. And my new shop, jewelryalamode.com, has a feature which allows you to sort and display items in the colors you are seeking just by clicking on a tag.


SAGITTARIUS: Nov 22- Dec 21

The centaur is the symbol for this sign. In mythology, the centaur was half man and half horse, given to pursuing pleasure. Those born under this sign will love traveling, discovering new things, meeting new people, and learning new things. Because they are eager to experience new things, they are fun to be around. They are usually highly intelligent and enjoy the company of other intelligent people. Sagittarians are about the bigger picture and details often bog them down and bore them.

Their Fire sign is gentle, mystical and creative. Imagine stained glass with its brilliant, colorful light shining through the glass. Your jewelry will reflect this image with colors of lilac, mauve, purple, amethyst, violet, vermillion and midnight blue.

Next month is Capricorn beginning Dec. 22.


I have been a casual follower of Astrology for as long as I can remember. I learned early in life that I was a Libra and investigated the characteristics of that sign as I grew up. I liked what I found. It seemed to fit my thoughts, feelings and actions. I now had a reason for my behavior. I could blame my activities on something other than just “I felt like it.”

As I grew older I researched the Zodiak signs of my friends and family . What a revelation! “So that is why she did that.” Lots of things made sense instead of confusion. I accepted my friends for who they were. Their personalities were bound, in some ways, by their astrological sign.
It also made sense to me when it came to the friends I was attracted to, or others who “turned me off”.

My blog requires that I investigate the 12 signs and their features each month. I enjoy the research. I do not seek out the signs of my current friends. I take them as they are, but sometimes I wonder why they do what they do, or don’t do.

This month’s sign is Sagittarius and I found it fascinating. I don’t know if any of my friends were born under this sign and I don’t care. It’s not a factor in the friendship.

Maybe you will find the characteristics of your sign in my blog during the year. I hope that you will enjoy the jewelry I have chosen from my collection that is right for your sign. Who knows, you might become curious about the sign you were born under and want to know more. Your computer is filled with Zodiak information. Have fun with it. But don’t take it too seriously.
