When we decide to decorate our home, we likely have several things in mind. While looking into trends and fixating on our budgets certainly come into play, the main point we hope to get across is a representation of our personality. We want the space to reflect who we are. For many people, looking into astrology can help bring certain aspects of ourselves to light. While many are familiar with Sun signs, looking into other zodiac elements in your birth chart–such as your rising sign–can give stronger insight into your personality! 

The rising sign focuses on your identity, your physical appearance, and the version of yourself you feel comfortable showing to the world around you. It’s usually the first impression others have of you. When applying this to your home, it’s likely the version of yourself that comes through the most when you’re decorating! So what does your rising sign say about your home decor?

    Your personality is weird and unique, and you care more about showing unconventional aspects of yourself rather than creating something cohesive. Futuristic, forward-thinking, artistic are the main goals you have in mind when you're decorating your home. You may look into what the typical decor rules are– but only so you can break them. You care about structure, but you want the freedom to change things up when necessary. You aren't afraid to experiment with unique furniture, colors, and styles because you can always change it if you aren't a fan.

    You're free-flowing and relaxed, and you want a space where you can get away from the world yet is also welcoming to others. You're more inclined to decorate with artistic and expressive items rather than practical and according to a specific plan. You don't lean into boring, sensible options–if it resonates with you on a personal level, then it becomes an essential part of the home. You are more likely to indulge in decor choices because it's essential for you to have an authentic representation of who you are rather than pick a by-the-book concept.

You're likely the one who has big dreams for their space and goes out of your way to bring those concepts to life, and you make sure your home doesn't go unnoticed.

    Your home holds plenty of significance to you, as it's your safe haven from the rest of the world. You lean towards what is comfortable and thoughtful, regardless of it is necessarily stylish. You want a beautiful atmosphere; however, you aren't willing to sacrifice comfort for the sake of it. Sentimental and caretaking, your home is most defined by the spaces people gather–think the kitchen or the living room. These spaces stand out and are typically the most engaging because you want your guests to feel welcome.

You prefer options that are easy to keep organized and fit within a theme. Your decor must have a purpose or work with the rest of the home–you don't believe in decorating purely for aesthetics alone. However, that doesn't mean you settle for boring decor choices! Whether it's hanging shelves, ottomans with storage space, or a table that can change sizes depending on the event, you like to be prepared for anything and look good in the process!

    You're private, intimate, and a bit daring. A minimalist environment is a natural option given your reserved nature. You don't mind keeping people guessing about who you are, but you take pride in keeping your appearance together. You select items that blend in and ensure that your space is only reflecting what you want people to see. While your home may stand out through implementing darker color schemes or the occasional statement piece, you don't feel the need to keep everything on display or draw strong attention to your indoor design. The mystery is part of the charm!
