Shopping with the star signs
Ever thought what’s it like to go shopping with the star signs? Is it retail heaven or hell to shop with a Leo, say? Are there better star signs to shop with than others? Which style of shopping does astrology incline each zodiac sign towards? Horoscope Friends is here with the answers to questions like these and more, so let’s check out shopping with the star signs!
Aries like to go where they want to go, so you might need to put off ticking off your shopping list until another day. They can’t be fagged waiting for you in the changing cubicle either. They’ll be off as quick as a shot. Wear flats.
Taurus likes a leisurely stroll through the shopping arcades with plenty of refreshment breaks, and just you wait and see how much they feel the garments or sniff them. Should there be any free samples of cheese…chocolate…anything on offer, they’re like a bull at a gate.
When Gemini shops you can guarantee that they’ve just been inspired. Perhaps it’s a new look that they’re trying to emulate? Or perhaps they need to buy a duplicate of something to satisfy their OCD? A few cocktails later and those shopping bags might be left on a train.
Cancer loves to shop when the prices drop. They live for the bargain shop circuit and dole out money-saving tips when shopping, sighing loudly if you pay full price for anything. But they also go for quality, so you won’t find them spending in stores where the stuff’s so thin that you could spit peas through it.
Leo loves to window shop so that they can check out their reflection. But once they get through the doors, shopping with them is bags of fun! Trying things on for a laugh or getting you to try things on for a laugh, like wedding dresses, does it for them. They also like furniture shops.
The Virgo shopping experience is a smart, ergonomically designed one in order to cover maximum shops with minimum effort. They hate revisiting old ground, so it’s hasta la vista, baby, if you didn’t grab it the first time. They love to return items, which some of you may find embarrassing.
Libra, like Leo, loves to window shop so that they can see how fabulous they look. But Libra LOVES clothes more. Even if they dress a bit like a scarecrow or insist that they aren’t bothered by fashion, they’re lying. Beautiful assistants don’t intimate Libra and neither will they you by the end of this experience.
Scorpios prefer shopping in the evening or at night. This is a great star-sign to buddy up with as a shopping partner because they’re patient enough to wait while you try stuff on, or if you’ve got underwear to buy. They know all the best places for pants. Likewise leather goods. Don’t ask.
The Sagittarius shopping experience is a chaotic one. This is a sign that has an unplanned life and the spontaneous shopping spree might get the elbow in favour of the pub just as quickly. Like their opposite sign, Gemini, Sagittarius’ shopping bags may end up on a train.
Capricorn loves a good old-fashioned department store, where the commissioner still holds the door open for you and where you get hit by the aroma of perfume in the cosmetics department as soon as you enter, likewise the food in the food hall. Or they like to add a touch of the luxuriant to every shopping expedition.
Aquarius people shop at their own pace. They don’t like huge crowds, but they do like clean lines and clinical or futuristic shopping malls. They can also be rather thrifty or they’ll, paradoxically, buy a three-piece sofa or off-road jeep on impulse or treat you unexpectedly.
Pisces know all the best-kept secrets off the beaten track, like all those quirky little independent shops. Shopping with them takes in arty print/poster shops too, or shops where you can get crystals and all that jazz. And the fish needs plenty of lubrication along the way.
