Zariin Real Women

Meet Zariin’s Zodiac Power Women

After a fabulous response to our first zodiac edit of gemstone necklaces called Stoned, we have introduced Linked – a more fashion forward edit in the form of gold dipped link lariat zodiac necklace that holds a medallion featuring a particular zodiac sign for each of the 12 signs. As a part of the launch campaign, we reached out to 12 incredible women to represent their respective zodiac signs and style the Linked necklaces in their own stylish ways to draw out the characteristics of each zodiac sign.

We believe that jewellery is one accessory that is extremely personal and more often than not we develop a relationship with it which may mark a moment in time or act as markers of who we are and our beliefs. Our zodiac signs take this personal bond one step forward as very often one wears these signs as talismans of our relationship with the stars. Read on as we explore what do zodiacs mean to these lovely women.

I’ve always been fascinated by chameleons, so I’m glad I have the ability to adapt to situations, places and people.

Gemini are fun loving, social and are known for being fickle and changing their minds. Is there something you have never changed your mind about or never grown out of?
Of course, I’ll never stop being creative about everything, from the plating of morning breakfasts, to my music 🙂

Tell us what you love about your zodiac sign?
I love the unpredictable nature of my sign. Aquarians are fundamentally unconventional and love straying away from the norm. We get a major kick out of pushing boundaries and are always looking at the next best way of disrupting the reasonable way of doing things.

Known to have a bit of a lazy streak, are progressive, independent and humanitarian. What motivates you to wake up in the morning?
The humanitarian in me is way more motivated when it comes to doing things for others rather than for myself (which is not always healthy). The lazy streak kicks in when it’s time to do things for myself or when I’m told to do certain things. But I’m fairly goal driven and put deadlines on myself which I’m strict with. So if there’s something that needs to be done, I make sure I do it.

One typical trait synonymous with your zodiac sign you do NOT relate to anymore (or grew out of)
I’m the poster child for my sign and there’s literally nothing I don’t relate to.

I love how it fiercely celebrates the feminine side.

Virgos are logical, intelligent, down to earth and known perfectionists. Tell us one area where you want everything to be perfect.

What is your favourite thing to do in your free time?

Tell us what you love about your zodiac sign?
I love everything about being a Leo. It defines who I am, my values and I relate to it. I love the fact that Leos are people with grit, confidence, ambition and at the same time are milder, introspective and also very humane.They are always very concerned and not oblivious to what’s happening around.

Known to be vivacious, theatrical and passionate….Leos love to bask in the spotlight and celebrate themselves. How would you define your relationship with self?
I think I love myself and put myself first but not at the expense of others. For me it’s very important that I put myself in other people’s shoes. But while I’m critical of myself, I’m always giving myself pep talks and being there for myself. I am very resilient and one of the strongest people that I know personally. I can say that my relationship with myself is very strong and am very confident in my skin.

So Aries are considered to be hardcore and they know what they want, they are passionate and optimistic. I am glad to say that I relate to most of these traits, you should never underestimate an Aries because they will prove you wrong.

Aries are known to be courageous, passionate, determined and optimistic. What are you most passionate about and what makes you feel most alive?
I am passionate about my work, it makes me feel creative and alive, I rarely stop thinking about it, and other than that I am deeply passionate about giving back in any way I can, I want to help people and animals and I feel very strongly about it.

One typical trait synonymous with your zodiac sign you do NOT relate to anymore (or grew out of)
They say Aries are extroverts and I clearly don’t fall into that category maybe I am very picky about the kind of people I want to be surrounded with and I don’t settle with people whose energy I don’t vibe with.

Tell us something about your zodiac sign?
A Sagittarian is like the wild child of Zodiacs. Full of life, laughter and optimism, and always up for an adventure. The famous French phrase joie de vivre, that means the joy of living, was perhaps inspired from the Sagittarian philosophy of life. 🙂 I also love the fact that a Sagittarian is known for being spontaneous , and I personally relate to that, as it helps me stay in the moment and not cling onto past, or worry about the future.

Interestingly, we read somewhere that Sagittarius are the gypsies of the zodiac, are brutally honest and frank.Have you ever had a foot in the mouth moment?

This is absolutely right, but I think I have started to make peace with my foot in the mouth moments, or perhaps even secretly enjoy them! Platitudes and proprieties in excesses would make life so dull, so wouldn’t it be nice to have a Sagittarian shake things up a bit and add some shock and humour! Also most people who know Sagittarians well would perhaps know that they are harmless and hold no malice, and hence cut them slack for their verbal overtures!

One typical trait synonymous with your zodiac sign you do NOT relate to anymore(or grew out of)
They say that Sagittarians, essentially bitten with wanderlust, and are prone to frequent boredom. As much as I love new adventures and challenges, I am getting equally comfortable with routine and the inertia of every day life.

She is, Pisces – Aparna Badlani

Fashion enthusiast, yoga lover, curator and an entrepreneur. Aparna’s style is sharp and sophisticated.

That I am a water sign. I love the water , the fact that it has within it the ability to calm and destroy all at once.

Defined as “social butterflies”, the Pisces thrive on interaction. Known to be artistic, intuitive and gentle. How intuitive are you?
I think I am fairly intuitive, like I know if something is about to go wrong, I can sense it way before it happens.

One typical trait synonymous with your zodiac sign you do NOT relate to anymore (or grew out of)
That we are terrible and unrealistic in our love affairs which is true, I think I have managed to change that for sure. I have a wonderful husband who I adore and look upto. Made the right choice after several mistakes.

I’m not sure if everyone is biased about their zodiac sign but I’m obsessed with other Cancerians too! I feel that they are the best people 🙂 I love that our strongest trait is loyalty and the relationships in our life are our world!

Cancer are synonymous with being imaginative, emotional and develop close relationships. What do your relationships mean to you?
They mean everything to me! We are who we are because of all the people in our life! My friends are my family and my family are my best friends! I love being surrounded by my fav people at all times so this pandemic is proving to be especially hard since I miss everyone so much 🙁

One typical trait synonymous with your zodiac sign you do NOT relate to anymore(or grew out of)

Tell us about something you love about your zodiac sign?
The thing I most love about Scorpios is their passion. When I was younger this translated as mayhem in my heart, but as I’ve grown older and learnt how to wield this trait, I think it can be used for amazing things, and to inspire myself in new directions.

Typical Scorpio traits suggest complicated, misunderstood, resourceful, make true friends and are believed to be loyal to the core. Are you good at keeping secrets?
Yes, just not my own! While a Scorpio’s loyalty is usually unquestionable, it does come with the heaviness of reciprocation, and if a Scorpio feels betrayed, then we often remember that hurt for a long time, and don’t entirely trust the person again.

One typical trait synonymous with your zodiac sign you do NOT relate to anymore (or grew out of.
The one thing I didn’t ever identify with too much, that I’ve always read about, is Scorpio jealousy. While every human has their insecurities and petty jealousies, I wouldn’t say it’s a defining aspect of my personality.
