Capricorns are responsible, conservative and traditional … right? So why are there so many bohemian Capricorns? Because they often have their Mercury and/or Venus in Aquarius [the sign of all things bohemian, ruled by Uranus].
This combination of Capricorn and Aquarius is fabulous for putting bohemian ideas into practice on the world stage … and in their homes. Two of my favorite boho Capricorns are actress Diane Keaton [look out for her beautiful boho home in next week’s post] and the gorgeous Helena Christensen.
Helena Christensen … Capricorn Home
When I look at a person’s decorating style, I primarily look at their Sun [self-expression and creativity] Moon [home and family] and Venus [aesthetic taste]. Plus bohemian individuals always have Aquarius and/or Uranus feature strongly in their birth chart.
Supermodel and photographer Helena Christensen was born on Christmas Day, 1968 and has a Capricorn Sun, a Pisces Moon and Venus in Aquarius – plus Uranus is closely square her Sun. So she is an earthy and creative bohemian. And this is reflected in her beautifully boho Greenwich Village loft, which is full of fabulous second-hand furniture and quirky thrift-shop finds. She is a bower-bird and says …
“I love playing around with vintage fabrics and lace, peculiar objects, old and weird things.”
“There will always be a desire for something new, fresh and innovative; as well as a yearning and respect for timeless elegance and beauty.”
The perfect combination of her Capricorn and Aquarian tastes!
