Fashion trends under the microscope: cape and poncho
These spacious, comfortable things create a sense of security and embrace us as good friends. Why do we have combined these different products in the same group? Because they have common features in terms of functionality and design solutions. They are covered with whole body, hiding our hands, often have free silhouette and flared back, strings are attached to the chest or hold on his shoulders. Here there is the symbolism of several Zodiac signs. Protection, cocoon, shelter is a feature Cancer sign. These needs were relevant at a time when Jupiter was in Cancer (June 2013-July 2014). And from that moment capes and ponchos began to slowly return to our everyday life. Emphasis on the back, straps on the chest, royal robes: these all are signs of Jupiter in Leo (July 2014-August 2015). As we know, Zodiac signs appear in pairs. Therefore, here symbols of air Aquarius sign are also present. I do not know about you, but for me this sign closely associated with the sky and flying. Hence the flying hands are, hidden until a certain time. Saturn in December 2014 goes into Sagittarius. Therefore, there are actual clothes with bulky A-line silhouette, specific to the fire element.
Whence poncho came to us? This item used in the days of ancient civilizations in the Andes. The word «poncho» came to us from the Spanish language. It means «blanket». Traditionally, it is made of thick heavy coat. American military leaders were real popularizers of Indian capes. Today, huge woolen scarves with ornaments returned to the male wardrobe. And Russian president tried recently a bright poncho.
Why ponchos are back in our lives? To explain this phenomenon, we can apply the model of fashionable spiral. But in this case we do not fit 12-year Jupiter cycle, but longer cycles, for example, a 30-year cycle of Saturn. Poncho was tastefully worn by our mothers. They were tying him to the spokes follow a pattern of fashion magazines in the 70s. And what planets tell us? In 1974-1975, Saturn is Cancer. Therefore cut was actual, which makes a cocoon-like shape. This astrological influence echoes the influence of Jupiter in Cancer, which we have already mentioned.
And as always, at the end we want to find out how long poncho will remain in our everyday wardrobe? At least the next 2 years. While Jupiter is in Leo and Saturn is in Sagittarius. If you will have a very unusual instances, save them for later. In 2021, when Jupiter will enter Aquarius sign, they will again be useful to you. Or to your grandchildren.
