An Interview with Camerin Stoldt, Fashion and Visual Designer
We had the pleasure of getting to know the NY-based designer Camerin Stoldt. Although her sun sign is Taurus, Camerin wears Aries to rep several of her planets in Aries: her Rising aka Ascendant, Moon, and Mars. Up-close, she’s a personification of Aries’ archetypes – tenacious, willful, and as fiery as her red hair.
Tell us more about your Aries and Taurus qualities, both strengths and weaknesses – we all have them!
“I’m still figuring it out, but the Aries Rising is your presenting face to the world, so I spend a lot of time tapping into that and letting that be my directive, making sure that I’m managing how I present myself to people. Aries is the bravest sign, but it’s also the most direct and impulsive. I’m quite direct and that’s a Taurus and Aries compatibility. Taking in things and trying to absorb all my surroundings and the people I’m around helps me focus the energy when I am making decisions in my personal and professional life.”
As far as we know, fire signs Rising are marked by positive, optimistic outlook on life. They’re bluntly honest, too.
“As an Aries, I’m very quick to get angry, but I’m also quite quick to forgive. I have a lot of anxiety thinking about the things that have already happened. So, I’ve been working on that for the past couple of years.”
It’s awesome that you’re so in tune with your personal evolution. Astrology is a tool that can help you understand people and navigate relationships, would you agree?
“It’s so funny, every date I’m on, people want to know my sign right away. I’ve been asked my sign in professional interviews. If you know a little bit about a person, you can sort of play to their sensitivities. It’s just like a love language – something really valuable to me in communication. With partners, professionally, with any kind of human interaction.”
The Universe has our collective back – we’re officially inspired! Just curious, do you have a favorite geometric shape? Your work is super structural.
“I like trapezoids. They’re quite imperfect, so I think they’re a good shape.”
