Sagittarius, illumination from a Book of Hours, Italian, c. 1475; in the Pierpont Morgan … [Credits : Courtesy of the Pierpont Morgan Library, New York, the Glazier Collection](Latin: “Archer”), in astronomy, zodiacal constellation lying between Capricornus and Scorpius, at about 19 hours right ascension (the coordinate on the celestial sphere analogous to longitude on the Earth) and 25° south declination (angular distance south of the celestial equator). The centre of the Milky Way Galaxy lies in Sagittarius, with the densest star clouds of the galaxy. Near the western border of Sagittarius is the winter solstice, the southernmost point reached by the Sun in its apparent annual journey among the stars

if your walls are perfect as-is and there is no more room to be had, check out these utilitarian pillows by nightwood <remember from the flea?>  they are great and also labeled <sagittarius / virgo stitched onto the tie-dyed canvas> oooh. ahhh.  i think the last time i checked my horoscope was library period in 7th grade from ym magazine – which happens to be the second oldest girls’ magazine, starting its run in the 30’s and ending 5 years ago. <wiki i can now thank.>  how will pre-teens live without ‘say anything’? le sigh.  i personally rarely follow astrology, but these simple line and dot silhouettes are very attractive regardless.

cuff $85.00


those with or without fond ym memories will find comfort and glam in the beautifully jeweled work of jessica kagan cushman.  she offers each astrological sign etched and jeweled in/on bracelete cuffs on her site as well in Neiman Marcus stores nationwide.

evidently sagittariuses enjoy gathering information – which is pretty appropriate given this blog.  do you believe in astrology? tarot cards? palm readers?
