I’ll cop to reading (and yes, sometimes wistfully believing) the occasional horoscope here and there. It’s the first page I look at in Elle, and when my local Starbucks posts the paper’s horoscope page by the drink pick-up area, you bet I’m scanning it while I wait for my vanilla latte.
My latest astrological discovery—Sextrology—has even quieted the lingering inner skeptic. (Seriously, check it out.) And I think there is some truth to it all. After all, I’m a Capricorn with a long history of making instant connections with fellow Earth signs.
But even if you think astrology exists solely for the purpose of cheesy pick-up lines, you have to admit there’s something fun about it. These vintage zodiac pieces found during my scouting adventures are pure kitsch. A bracelet with the traits of a Gemini spelled out? Self-aware style at its best. Another one with retro zodiac charms? Awesome. My personal favorite is this charm holder pendant with two goats. But that one is no longer for sale. This proud Cap needs a signature talisman.
