The first time I read my horoscope, I was 8 years old sitting at the foot of my nanny’s chair. We had ritual that every time I slept over, we would spend the early part of the next morning reading the newspaper together. She would read the front page and gossip columns and I would read the cartoons and the horoscopes. I was fascinated how our birthday and the alignment of the stars could define our personality and destiny. I don’t know if it’s truth or power of suggestion, but since her passing I have always taken comfort in reading my horoscope. So much so that my first tattoo was that of a Leo sign.
Recently, I have been struggling with my path in life. I’m happy and healthy, but I feel unsettled some how. This feeling comes around every so often in my life and my search for clarity or understanding usually leads me back to the comfort of my Nana and my horoscope. Craving something different, I was excited to come across an unique piece of jewelry that combines both my love of technology with my fascination of horoscopes. This is the new horoscope line for Code to Canvas.
