Awesome Aquarius People

Hey Guys, I've been wanting to do something like this for very long time. Since my birthday is coming up I want list all the influential Aquarius that I grew up watching or finding out about.  It was really fun and interesting to find out that some of the people were Aquarius and it's kind of makes me want try harder to become more successful in my career or basically anything I do.

Sanskrit Name: Kumbha, is a full vase, pot, a jar or a pitcher is also symbolic of the womb.  | Meaning of Name : The Water-bearer | Type : Air-Fixed-Positive | Lord : The Uranus (The 'Ice Giants,' seventh planet from the Sun, also known in Greeco-Roman mythology as Caelus/ Uranos the Sky God and in Egypt known as Khnum, the god of rebirth, creation and the evening sun, although this is usually the function of Atum (cough cough, Adam.  Nut, the goddess of the sky, headdress was the hieroglyphic of part of her name, a pot, which may also symbolize the uterus.)  In Hindu mythology, Uranus is the King Vasuki/ Naga the "divine being “great king snake (cobra) with a gem (Nagamani) on his head; him and his sibling carried their mother's curse which  allowed the devas (gods) and the asuras (demons) to bind him to Mount Mandara and use him as their churning rope to extract the ambrosia of immortality from the ocean of milk.  Uranus is also Suraya or Phra Athit ("the Supreme Light") is the chief solar deity.  Surya is sometimes depicted with two hands holding a lotus in each hand and sometimes with four hands holding a lotus, chakra, a conch, and a mace.  Surya is also the personified into Helios and whose son Phaëton, who attempted to drive his father's chariot but lost control and set the earth on fire so, Helios usual associated with destruction.  However, Helios is also refereed as Apollo, 'the Healer and god-protector from evil,' who was born on the seventh day; Leto was pregnant by Zeus, who banned Leto from giving birth once Hera found out.

Aquarius is also governed by Saturn (' A Gas Giant ,' sixth planet from the Sun, also known in Greeco-Roman mythology as Cronus, God of Agriculture Ruler of the Titans, the God of "Duty," also son of Uranus (Surya) and in Egypt is known as Ra, the 'creative power' and 'creator'.)
 In Hindu mythology, Shani is embodied in the planet Saturn and is the Lord of SaturdayShani is also known as Śanaiścara or Chayyaputra and is shown holding a sword, arrows and two daggers and variously mounted on a black crow or a raven. Saturn in both Greece-roman and Hindu stories are practically the same. But on the 7 & 1/2 year you have bad luck because Shani did not allow himself to take the chair of humility and lost out on becoming the most highest respected deva by King Vikramaaditya, who he cursed on the every 7.5 years.




Lucky Color :Blue, Blue-green, Grey, Black | Lucky Day : Sunday and Saturday | Lucky Number : 4, 8, 13, 17, 22, 26

People who fall under the Aquarius Zodiac sign are independent. They don’t like anyone telling them what to do, they rather find out how to do things on their own. They don’t like playing by the rules, and they live life on their own terms. They are determined and assertive. No one can stop them from achieving their goals. Aquarians are known for being eccentric and open-minded. They promote social change and truly care about making a difference in the world. Aquarians are not afraid to speak the truth. They are usually viewed as emotionless because they don’t react to certain situation as others would. They are strong willed and determined, which is often mistaken as stubborn. They are very eccentric and love to dance to their own tune.

  • Aquarians have a unique sense of style that is best described as quirky and fashion-forward.
  • They are usually the first to rock a new trend and don’t mind breaking fashion “rules” as long as they stay true to themselves.
  • Water bearers love bright colors and try to incorporate them into every outfit– even if it’s just a small pop of color.

Floral Spring

 
The first day of Spring 2014 is on March 20 according to the astronomical stars. It is also called the spring equinox. Spring is one of the four temperate seasons, the transition period between winter and summer. Spring and "springtime" refer to the season, and broadly to ideas of rebirth, renewal and regrowth. This coming Spring fashion brings floral prints, so you can now breakout those Hawaiian shirts you've been pushing towards the back of your closet. Everyone seems to be going for that 1940s look. The women look fancy and men look flashy. Mock suits and dresses seem be huge trend on the runway this season and for the men it all about the suits and work attire with neutrals and unique prints. But some are going for the 90's, which is interesting here in West and Europe, me personally I love the 90s, but I rather not go back there when it comes to fashion yet. I feels like 90s was really an evolution of 80s fashion but more Colorful and Print oriented and denim could be considered for work attire. The 1940's is more appealing to me personally because I never lived through it. Plus here in LA the Hawaii theme was hugely popular and so were those tropical Hollywood set movies. But now that I look at incoming fashion looks it seems the men are going for 1940s while women 90s look.

After Christmas Haul


 Hey Guys,

Happy New Year

Sorry I just got done with long weekend working ALA and extremely tired I didn't get to take much pictures this time :(. Everyone I know went on vacation during the holidays and pretty much stayed home and did nothing...I did get of out the house but as the days went on I got kept getting tired. Anyways I worked really hard but I did really leave my post at Con Suite...I did really want to go to any panels because I kind suck in there but I really like atmosphere.  Here is some stuff I bought before Con. Since Lensvillage was having sale I bought four  Princess Nudy lens. All my orders came in on first week of January. My wigs I brought from Amazon all cost $10 and came on the 31 and then on Friday I got my lens and bodyline stuff. The last picture is purse I've been wanting and it was on sale finally but the items are from AVON, and mom got me jump rope and one body. . . I forgot what it's called but helps suck in fat. My boyfriend brought me back a charm from a prestigious shrine and he spents all his money on Comket stuff  that he's hoping to sell, it's mostly Cardcaptor Sakura stuff.
