Close your eyes, concentrate and visualize the house (or villa!) of your dreams. What would it be like? In the city center or surrounded by nature? Hi-tech or rustic? Dark colors or a riot of light and bright nuances? Full of objects and memorabilia or minimalist?
We asked astrologer Terry Alaimo to reveal the characteristics of the ideal home for each sign of the zodiac. Dreaming is always beautiful. And you never know that by dint of manifesting the perfect home, you won't attract some luck!
Aries (March 21-April 20)
First in the circle of the zodiac, Aries is a Fire sign linked to tradition, family, conviviality and solid values. Direct and passionate, he dreams of a rustic-style house immersed in the countryside, perhaps with a vegetable garden and garden to do with his hands (it's a super practical sign, as well as hyper active). In his dream house, a maxi dining table in raw wood strong>, a crackling fireplace and a color palette in shades of red-brown cannot be missing.
Taurus (April 21-May 20)
Tenacious and calm, this Earth sign is protected by Venus, planet of beauty, harmony and pleasure. Translated: his home is aesthetically pleasing and 100% comfortable. Like Aries, Taurus also appreciates contact with nature and dreams of owning a lush garden or, in the absence of space, a flowered balcony. Its interior style is a mix of classic and minimal, with a riot of light and bright nuances, excellently made custom-made furnishings and a gigantic cocoon bed.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
An Air sign ruled by Mercury, planet of communication, Gemini is not at all attached to material goods, nor to the idea of a fixed abode. Home is where there are friends, contacts, relationships. Ideally, the Gemini dreams of living in the city center, close to cinemas, clubs and shops. His dream space is an open-plan loft full of windows, skylights and hi-tech materials. He prefers a futon to the bed, to be rolled up strategically when it's time to organize a party without time limits.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Sensitive and protective, this Air sign is, under the direct influence of the Moon, also touchy and moody. The house represents a soft nest in which to take refuge in blissful solitude or in the company of selected guests who are very dear to him. He is not attracted by luxury, nor by large sizes. Cancer falls in love with even a small apartment, as long as it is housed in a historic building, perhaps in some little street that has remained unchanged over time. He invests in a well-equipped kitchen, where he prepares delicacies for his intimate circle.
Leo (July 23-August 23)
Fire sign ruled by the Sun, exudes charisma, determination, optimism. On the other hand, it is a sign that tends towards arrogance and arrogance. The Leo would like to live in an elegant, spacious home, equipped with every comfort and, possibly, with a collection of iconic designer furnishings. In fact, it is the zodiac sign that dreams big the most. Prevailing color in your interior design? Yellow, in all its shades, from gold to mustard.
Virgo (August 24-September 23)
Mercury gives this Earth sign a strong rational intelligence, as well as an enviable organizational ability. Reluctant to change and reserved, Virgo loves the concept of privacy. Her dream home is close to nature, perhaps overlooking the lake, isolated in the greenery, certainly far from the nightlife. Inside, light colors and contemporary furnishings with clean lines will prevail. Furnishing philosophy? Less is more.
Libra (September 24-October 22)
Venus, as in the case of Taurus, gives this Air sign an innate aesthetic sense, as well as a natural inclination for everything that is harmonious, symmetrical, balanced. Libra dreams of living in a refined apartment in the city, preferably housed in a modern or freshly restyled condominium. Fan of decluttering, Libra does not like the superfluous and greatly appreciates the Japanese-inspired zen style.
Scorpio (October 23-November 22)
Pluto makes this Water sign capable of unparalleled emotional depth. A fine listener, Scorpio loves to alternate moments of sociality with others of absolute quiet. His dream home is in the mountains, perhaps hidden in the woods. A crackling fireplace, an enveloping leather armchair and a nature-view desk are his must-haves. As for colors, Scorpio is a fan of dark shades, from London smoky gray to midnight blue.
Sagittarius (November 23-December 21)
This Fire sign ruled by Jupiter is known for its thirst for travel, adventure, novelty and contacts. It is difficult for those born in Sagittarius to imagine themselves in the same place for their whole life. Their home is recognizable for its cheerfully eclectic style. Maximalism doesn't scare them, on the contrary: they love collecting travel souvenirs from every corner of the planet in the various rooms. And then bright colours, a profusion of cushions and ethnic rugs.
Capricorn (December 22-January 20)
Earth sign protected by Saturn, he is ambitious and, in life, aims high. Attached to traditional values, Capricorn invests in a historic house with solid foundations and is not at all discouraged by the renovation work, on the contrary, he enjoys personally managing the construction site. Lover of classic and durable elements, he creates the perfect vintage chic domestic scenography, selecting the best family furnishings and polishing them.
Aquarius (January 21-February 18)
Unconventional by definition, the Air sign ruled by Uranus is idealistic and independent. He also hates aligning himself with current trends, including interior ones. The Aquarius dream home is an independent house in some cutting-edge architectural style, capable of imposing its personality. There is no shortage of art collections and floor-to-ceiling windows, to underline the value of freedom so dear to the sign.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
Ruled by Neptune, this sign is a master of sensitivity and empathy, but also of disorder and mutability. His ideal home is close to Water, his element: whether it is a river, a lake or the beloved sea, the view of the blue is a guarantee of happiness for Pisces. In interior design he loves to bring pastel colors and naive style decorations, which he combines with everything that is soft and cuddly, from carpets to sofas, from curtains to poufs.
