When it comes to making life's biggest decisions, there's always research and reason. But that's just ... boring? We much prefer listening to what's in the stars, and so when it comes to decorating, astrology can actually be helpful. Hear us out: Every zodiac sign has their own decorating style — from intense, sultry Scorpio; to airy, artsy Libra; to bold, glamorous Aries. Here are 12 table lamps for each sign:

Aries, a fire sign, is drawn to intense, bold colors and glamorous, reflective surfaces — like the base of this lamp, which is reminiscent of the iridescent hue at the hot center of a burning flame.

Taurus, an earth sign, rules material objects and loves to be surrounded by beautiful, unstuffy elegance. This black and white table lamp is chic and refined, but hardly boring.
