This week we’re helping you align your planets with paintings. Check out the artist whose style suits your star sign!

Taurus (20th April – 20th May) – John Constable

You’re a realist Taurus, and so was Constable. No blue sky thinking in his paintings.

Gemini (21st May – 20th June) – Norman Rockwell

Stop gossiping Gemini, you might end up in a Norman Rockwell painting …

Norman Rockwell knew how to deal with gossips. #normanrockwell #arttok #arthistory #edutok #americanart

Cancer (21st June – 22nd July) – Mark Rothko

You’re an enigma Cancer, reading you is harder than reading a Rothko painting.

Virgo (23rd August – 22nd September) – Johannes Vermeer

Your patience is a virtue Virgo, and Vermeer knew it too, he was known to spend years working on a single painting.

Libra (23rd September – 22nd October) – Florine Stettheimer

Stettheimer’s dainty artworks are almost as charming as you Libra!

Scorpio (23rd October – 21st November) – Paul Cézanne

Cézanne was loyal to his subjects (he painted 81 versions of Mount Sainte-Victoire), like you Scorpio, sometimes he just couldn’t let things go …

Sagittarius (22nd November – 21st December) – Hilma af Klint

Take a break from all that overthinking Sagittarius, let Hilma do the philosophising instead.

Capricorn (22nd December – 19th January) – Piet Mondrian

Take a leaf out of Mondrian’s book Capricorn, channel that pragmatism into a pioneering art movement.

Aquarius (20th January – 18th February) – Georgia O’Keeffe

Hopefully, your pals won’t take your need for alone time personally Aquarius, maybe you just find inspiration in solitude, like Georgia O’Keeffe.

Pisces (19th February – 20th March) – Natalia Goncharova

Your intuition is powerful Pisces, like Goncharova, you know there’s usually more to a situation than meets the eye.
