Architectural Styles by Zodiac Sign

I admit, I am not that savvy or superstitious when it comes to Zodiac Signs but I confess to quickly glancing at my horoscope while flipping through the Vail Daily. Sometimes they are incredibly timely and accurate and other times it might call for a 5-star day when I have already spilled my coffee on my white blouse while taking a corner a little too hot on I-70. 

I am sure many of you have the same views on astrology as I do, but a recent article on Apartment Therapy was too entertaining not to share (especially for my Millennial friends)! 

Without further adieu....

Sometimes perceived as cold and unemotional, Capricorn appreciae the no-frills appeal of contemporary architecture. Many homes of this style champion eco-friendly practices, which pair well with Capricorn being an earth sign. 


I have to be honest, I was thinking of friends, family and loved ones born in each month and had a little chuckle. I am an Aries and my husband is a Virgo...I'd say we are a great balance!
