Your Zodiac Sign’s Power Color, According To Astrology

 

 

Did you know wearing red can make you sexier?
What is a power color? Power colors are the colors you can wear that create a mood or increase the likeliness of a certain action.
Depending on your personality or the occasion, one tone might be better over another.
For example, if you plan on going to a party and you need to catch the eye of some beautiful person —
You’d wear red to not only make them feel attracted to you but to also help make yourself feel assertive and in control. Everything is fair in love and war, right?
But, if you wanted to feel calmer or if you wanted to calm others, you’d wear blue. Wearing blue can make you or other people feel like they’re sitting beside a lazy, babbling stream. Deeper blues are the best for these results. 
Shades do matter when it comes to power colors so make sure to double check before you wear lavender thinking it will give you purple’s effects.
If you have the artist’s eyes like some people you should have no problem with this. Power colors are actually made for zodiac signs, too. These colors can help enhance your horoscope and zodiac sign’s best qualities.
Yes, you may already be the best but this can make you better! So, here are the colors that are specifically for your zodiac sign using some information from astrology.

ARIES (March 21 – April 19)

Aries, your power color is RED.
The color red is said to create a mood of passion and since you are a fire sign this goes perfectly with you. Wearing red lipstick or a red dress is what will get you the most looks in a room which you thrive off of.
That power to make everyone break their necks just to see you, it’s amusing to you. Having red curtains or red paint in your room will make it so your partner and you have plenty of intimate moments. Wear red to feel more powerful, especially during interviews.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)

Taurus, your power color is GREEN.
The color green is symbolic to nature itself and with your sign being an Earth sign this is perfect for you.
Just like nature, you are stable, patient and always growing. You always know when it’s time to let go of dying connections. Wear green to help make you feel stable and progressive.

GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)

Gemini, your power color is YELLOW.
The color yellow is vibrant and loud, just like you. Your curious nature and your ability to inspire others are very important aspects.
Most people think of the sun as the source of joy and happiness which means you are the personified version of the sun. Wear yellow to help increase your thought process, writer’s block should be no more.

CANCER (June 21 – July 22)

Cancer, your power color is WHITE/SILVER.
The color white is ethereal like the wings of a dove and like the reflection of the silver moon on the surface of still water represents the gracefulness, that you possess.
You are a being of understanding and acceptance, letting someone into your arms is like being held by the goddess of love herself.
Cancers represent the concept of love and these colors will help you increase the flow and capacity for love. Wear white/silver to increase your understanding and sensitivity.

LEO (July 23 – August 22)

Leo, your power color is GOLD.
Of course. You are royalty, Leo. Wearing gold like the king or queen you only brings strength and positivity to you.
Your gold trinkets can only empower you and make you more fierce than you already are. The shining of your gold jewelry not only brings about attention but it makes you look like the royalty that you are. Wear gold to give you a sense of power.

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)

Virgo, your power color is GREEN/BROWN.
Just like the jungle you are grounded and full of life. You are careful and analytical and these colors represent stability and growth.
Helping yourself grow and improve is very important to you as long as you don’t take it too far. Wear these colors if you need to focus on self-improvement in certain areas.

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)

Libra, your power color is PINK/BLUE.
These colors help soften your charming personality. You are already blessed with the gift of the gab and you’ll seem even more friendly with these colors.
The blue helps brings an essence of calm while the pink exudes how loving and caring you are. If you want to make more friends make sure to wear this color.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)

Scorpio, your power color is BLACK.
The color of black helps to increase how powerful your presence is and enhances your already mysterious nature.
The black conceals how deep your soul really is and protects yourself against prying eyes but it also makes you want to look deeper into everything.
Wear black if you want to increase your deductive reasoning and increase your mysterious essence.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)

Sagittarius, your power color is PURPLE.
Having an open mind is important to a traveler like you. The color purple improves open mind and your awareness of life itself.
As a traveler knowing that life brings many views and opinions so being able to take in all these differences and gain an understanding from all of it is a trait of yours. Wear purple to help broaden your already open mind.

CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)

Capricorn, your power color is BROWN/GRAY.
Tradition and simplicity are key components of your lifestyle. These colors are not boring, they’re efficient and acceptable for any setting.
The practicality of these colors is the essence of a no-nonsense lifestyle. Wear these colors to stay strong and practical.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)

Aquarius, your power color is BLUE.
For a restless sign like yourself being able to focus on one single thought is very difficult.
But the color blue is to help soothe that restless energy so you can bring out all of your fantastic ideas without fighting against the flood of your fast-moving mind. Wear blue if you need help channeling your creativity.

PISCES (February 19 – March 20)

Pisces, your power color is LIGHT GREEN.
You are a natural healer and the light green improves your natural talents. Paler versions of green help bring out your healing powers and ability to inspire. Wear light green if you need to help soothe someone and bring them peace.

Zodiac Signs Most Likely To Become Criminals, Ranked From Least To Most

 

 

These signs just can’t seem to stay out of trouble.
Over the centuries, lawyers and leaders have had to revise the laws over and over. Society has evolved so much throughout the years that what was once a serious offense seems laughable to us now.
Take a look at your city’s law books and you’ll probably find some old, forgotten relics lurking around in there. Is it still illegal for women to adjust their stockings in public in your town? Or to buy meat on a Sunday? Or for dogs to smoke cigars?
Underneath it all, though, human nature hasn’t changed that much, and our horoscopes are proof of that. You’d think that, as a race, humans would have matured and moved beyond the worst in ourselves by now, but we’re still committing horrible offenses against other people.
You can’t read the news without being bombarded with stories of violence, theft, and oppression. We’ve come a long way from the dark ages, during which a woman could be put to death just for being accused of witchcraft, but we still have a very long way to go before we can call ourselves a peaceful, enlightened planet.
It would be nice if there was some way we could tell, early on, which people were most likely to become criminals. Statistics and demographics are useful, but they only show a general picture, and don’t say much about whether an individual will develop seriously anti-social behaviors as they grow up.
If you’re wondering about someone, try to get a look at their full astrology chart and see where the planet Uranus shows up. This planet is associated with chaos, rule-breaking, and challenges to the status quo. It doesn’t always manifest in a negative sense (it also encourages progress and evolution through change), but if there are a lot of stressful aspects working against it, this energy can turn very sour throughout someone’s life.
The Sun is just a small part of a full chart, but we can start with the zodiac signs most likely to be criminals.

1. VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)

Virgo isn’t looking for trouble. In fact, they’re more likely to help fight crime by pointing out every little infraction they see. Organized and detail-oriented, Virgo would make an excellent legal researcher. Because they’re so insistent on things being done “by the book,” they’re not likely to break any rules.

2. CANCER (June 21 – July 22)

Cancer is another quiet, peaceful sign that prefers to mind their own business. This is the “nurturing parent” of the zodiac, and they may give real criminals too many chances (if Cancer really loves someone, their home is always open to them no matter what), but Cancer seldom gets personally involved in actual law-breaking.

3. TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)

Taurus can become dangerously violent if they have to defend themselves and their property, but otherwise, this sign prefers to live and let live.
Although Taurus loves “the good life” and is willing to go a long way to acquire wealth and property, they’re also keenly aware of boundaries. Just because they want to accumulate as much as they can for themselves and their family, it doesn’t mean that they’re willing to steal from someone else.

4. LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)

Libra wants everyone to be treated fairly and would be appalled at the idea of hurting someone else or taking what they don’t deserve. But this goes two ways, and Libra knows that the law isn’t always fair, either.
If Libra turns rogue, it’s not because they just feel like breaking all the rules, but because they want to change the bad ones.

5. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)

Good-natured and flexible, Sagittarius usually stays out of real trouble, but they do have a problem with impulse control. When they get excited about a prospect or an idea (or if they just want something so badly they can’t stand it), they don’t always stop to think about going through the “proper channels.”

6. LEO (July 23 – August 22)

Big-hearted Leo doesn’t mean any harm. But they need that attention and praise, and sometimes their ego doesn’t care where it comes from.
When Leo feels they’re being ignored, they’ll act out and push the envelope if they have to. If Leo’s hanging with the wrong crowd, they may be inspired to participate in criminal activity just because they want to impress everyone.

7. CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)

Capricorn is all about finding the most efficient way to reach their goals. Cold and calculating, they’re not always too concerned with obeying the spirit of the law.
However, going to jail wouldn’t be very efficient either, so Capricorn isn’t likely to break any rulesunless they’re certain that they won’t get caught.

8. PISCES (February 19 – March 20)

Unlike Capricorn, Pisces is ruled by their emotions. They tend to get caught up in others’ problems and have a hard time separating their own feelings from those of the people around them.
Pisces probably won’t initiate criminal activities on their own, but if they’ve been convinced that it’s the only solution to a problem, they’re easily led into trouble.

9. GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)

Eloquent and intellectual, Gemini can get other people to go along with just about anything, and this is a talent that’s easily abused. Violent crime doesn’t appeal to most Geminis, but they’re very good at fraud, deception, coercion, blackmail — anything that allows them to convince others to give Gemini whatever they want.

10. AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)

Aquarius isn’t concerned with social norms or expectations, and they tend to feel like they’re above most laws. For all their eccentricities, though, Aquarius usually wants to see improvements in the lives of all humans, rather than making things worse.
If an Aquarius is breaking the law, they probably believe that their own humanitarian agenda justifies their actions.

11. ARIES (March 21 – April 19)

Aries is determined to get what they want, and they’re going to do it their own way, no matter what the law has to say about it. Passionate, impatient, and quick-tempered, Aries may be most prone to physical violence and destruction of property.

12. SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)

Although this sign is associated with the legal system itself, Scorpio’s mind and heart are naturally inclined toward anything forbidden: they love secrets, drama, and excitement. The criminal underworld is attractive to them, and depending on their other talents, they may be involved in all kinds of nefarious things.
Scorpio is clever, though, and because they have an affinity for both self-preservation and finding legal loopholes, they’ll probably never get caught.

Zodiac Signs EVERYONE Wants To Sleep With, Ranked From Best In Bed To Worst

 

 

If you’ve been out looking to score and you’ve never asked, “What’s your sign?” then it’s definitely time. It might seem like a silly, even antiquated pick-up line, but someone’s zodiac sign can actually reveal quite a bit about how they are in bed. Your horoscope won’t even give you that kind of details.
And, yes, some zodiac signs are better than others, I’m sorry (not sorry) to report. That’s just how it is because someone has to be best and someone has to be worst. It’s science.
So before you go to bed with your next flavor of the evening or even settle into a serious relationship, make sure you know what you’re getting yourself into first. Here are the zodiac signs that are the best to have sex with, ranked from best to worst.
1. GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)
Gemini is seductive AF. In other words, someone born under Gemini can easily talk anyone out of their pants and into bed. Once there, Gemini doesn’t disappoint. The perfect combo of intellect and creativity makes Gemini the best sign for sex in the zodiac. Hands down.
2. SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
The intensity that pumps through the veins of Scorpio is so scorching that if you’re looking for a romp that’s going to leave you breathless, you best find the closest Scorpio and bed them now. Where they lack in Gemini’s creativity, they definitely make up for it in intense stamina.
3. AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
With their “anything goes personality”, sex with an Aquarius is always an adventure. They probably have a bigger sex toy collection than you and nothing is off the table. For Aquarius, great sex is about experimentation and exploration. In other words, you’ll both be satisfied.
4. LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)
Libra is all about passion and appearance. While the latter may seem superficial, when it comes to sex it actually plays in everyone’s favor. Libra is the lover who’s going to rock lingerie, bring out the scented candles, and start foreplay with a massage, using only the best massage oil, of course. It’s all about the details. But when the massage oil is gone and the candles have gone out, Libra turns on the kink and is ready to please.
5. VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
Although a bit shy and reserved, all that changes when you get Virgo into bed. While they might not be the best in bed or most creative, they definitely get an A for effort and eagerness. So that’s something to look forward to if your partner is a Virgo.
6. TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
Because Taurus is a particular bedfellow, it’s best if we put them in the middle of the list. Depending on how you feel about dominating partners, Taurus could either be the greatest lay of your life or the worst. While outside the bedroom Taurus will wine and dine the eff out of you, in the bedroom they’re happiest when you’re tied up and they’re in charge. So it’s up to you to decide if this is the route you want to take.
7. ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
They may not be as bossy as Taurus, but Aries still wants things their way — or not at all. They also like to get in and get out. This doesn’t mean that they don’t care about their partner’s pleasure, but it does mean that you can forget the foreplay, making Aries perfect for quickies… if that’s your cup of tea.
8. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)
Of all the signs, Sagittarius is the most playful. While for some that can be a great thing, if you’re someone who’s looking for hot, intense sex then Sagittarius is a bad choice. It’s not that they’re terrible in bed, they just need to quit with the jokes. Laughing during sex is awesome, but there’s a fine line between having fun and just being absurd.
9. PISCES (February 19 – March 20)
When it comes to sex, Pisces likes to keep things on an even keel. Although a very sensitive sign, Pisces is pretty luke-warm in bed. In fact, a one-night stand with a Pisces is likely to be forgettable because it’s just “meh.”
10. CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
Before you go to bed with a Cancer, it’s important to ask yourself how you feel about the term “make love.” Why? Because that’s what Cancer wants to do to you: make love, sweet love, in this whole lovey-dovey fashion that will make anyone feel like they’re stuck in a horrible romance novel. Fabio, anyone?
11. CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)
Is Capricorn worth going to bed with? Well, it depends on how much time you have. Not one to make the first move and a bit lethargic when they’re finally in bed, having a proper romp with Capricorn can feel like pulling teeth. This isn’t to suggest they’re awful in bed, per se, they just lack the oomph that other signs have.
12. LEO (July 23 – August 22)
The worst of the zodiac? Leo. To get straight to the point, Leo’s narcissism tends to get in the way of making them very good in bed. Granted, they could work on this if they have a partner who’s patient. Just don’t expect to go to bed with Leo and not end up having to finish yourself off because they fell asleep right after they had an orgasm.

Here’s Why Your Girlfriend Is A Totally Crazy Bitch, According To Her Zodiac Sign

 

 

Aries (March 21st – April 19th)

She’s loudmouthed, bossy, impatient and impulsive. This girl won’t think twice about slashing your tires or lighting your entire closet on fire. She’s undisciplined, action-oriented and fearless. While that’s fun in the beginning-all that lack of self-control and devil-may-care attitude-I shed a tear for the person who crosses her. She’ll run her mouth about what you did (or maybe something she perceived you did- she’s not big on fact checking) to your friends and family, blow up your Facebook with public posts and will flood her Instagram feed with photos of her ‘just hanging out’ with other people to make you jealous. She’s like a toddler with access to a smartphone and your house keys.
The good news is, because she’s so impulsive and doesn’t always think things through, chances are she’ll just destroy the first thing she comes in contact with, be it your brand-new NorthFace jacket, your beat up, virus ridden six-year old laptop, or your ego. As long as you keep the truck locked in the garage and your lucky Von Miller jersey tucked safely away, they’ll be safe. She lacks the follow-through to go looking for the stuff you actually care about.

Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)

The bull is prone to laziness, possessiveness, jealousy, materialism and penny-pinching. She’s a whole lot of fun in the beginning. She’ll treat you like royalty-the lady bull will shower you with gift and home-cooked meals, long, sensuous massages, a powerful sex drive and an unflappable demeanor. That said, once the bloom is off the rose and the Bull settles into her routine is when things can turn ugly.
If she thinks your work-wife is a little too much “wife” and not enough “work”, prepare to come home to the Spanish inquisition. If you really cross her, that sweet little Ferdinand lass of yours will turn into Toro the Bull. I hope you’ve put away your valuables, because they’re about to get smashed to smithereens. When she’s really done (and mind you, it takes a while for her to get there, but once she’s through, there’s no turning back), after the screaming, the stomping, the pouting, the accusations and the destructions of your things (not hers, she’s spent way too much money on her things), you better keep an eye on that bank account- especially if it’s shared. She’ll drain you for every penny you have, and not think twice. The bull is soothed by food, wine and material goods, and if she feels you’ve crossed her, she’ll think nothing of emptying your pockets for her own satisfaction.

Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)

If you’ve hooked up with a Gemini, you’ve probably been temporarily blinded by her chatter and charm. Being with a Gemini is like being inside a butterfly pavilion. Everything is so light and easy, so pretty and stimulating, you don’t know where to look first. She’ll enchant you with her tinkerbell laugh and her childlike interest in everyone and everything. You’ll think you’ve fallen into a land of fairies and pixie dust. Believe me, you haven’t.
She’s superficial, ADHD, unable to commit, wracked with anxiety and has zero direction.
Everything is new and fun and interesting to her whirling dervish of a mind, that she retains minimal information and is constantly flying off to the next flower. She’s a tease, because she can’t settle down with one person but sex is also oftentimes ‘too much’ for her, so she flits about driving everyone, including her partner, absolutely crazy. She’s also incredibly moody, given her dual nature, and a ball of nerves due to her tendency to bite off more than she can chew.

Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)

If you’re with a Cancer, be prepared for the tears. Nonstop. Over everything and nothing. The woman has zero self-esteem and is constantly looking for outside reassurance. At first she may seem interesting and mysterious, due to her hard outer shell, but once you’ve broken through and committed yourself to her, she turns into a stage 9 clinger.
You better have lots of tissues, endless patience and unlimited minutes and texting on your phone, because she will be on you, 24-7. A night out with the guys is enough to send her into a tailspin for a week. She’s not one to speak her wants and desires, expecting you to read her mind, and becoming livid when you don’t. This woman acts like she’s PMSing a full 24/7, 365. Cancer is also the sign on the mother, so she’ll be on your for kids within the first few weeks of dating. Don’t trust her when she says she’s on the pill- make sure you’re double-bagging that thing and always check for pinholes in the condom wrapper.
But hey, it’s not all bad. Cancer woman tend to have great racks, so if you’re a tit-man, you’re in for a treat.

Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)

“Off with their head!” is the Leo woman’s motto. She doesn’t just admire Beyoncé- she actually thinks she IS Beyoncé, and you, peasant, will treat her as such. She has a jealous streak to rival the Taurus or Scorpio woman, only hers is compounded by a flair for the dramatic as well. Prepare for public fights, drinks to be thrown in your face, screams about how you were lucky she ever spoke to you, how she can’t believe she wasted her time with someone only made/did/went to (insert income/job/school here) and will stomp off, after stomping your foot with one of her stilettos.
You might think she’d stomped off home, but chances are, once she cooled down a bit, she stomped off to your apartment. You may very well come home to the kitten side of your Leo lady, now that the panther has licked her wounds a bit. You’ll find her curled up in your bed, smelling like a whole perfume store, skin glistening, makeup perfectly applied, hair cascading all over her leopard print silk nightie, and practically purring to you how very, very sorry she is.
Just remember…even kittens have claws.

Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)

The Virgo woman is the original nagger, complainer, and hypochondriac. At first it seems sweet- she shows her affection through acts of service. She’s so is highly organized so you’ll never have ask twice where your socks are, if a bill has been paid or what’s for dinner. It will all be pre-planned and taken care of, complete with an excel spreadsheet and a marked-off Google calendar outlining the next six months.
Slowly though…the nagging starts. The criticisms. The phantom sicknesses. Your house will smell like protein powder and B-12 tablets from all the supplements she takes (and will make you take too). What started out as gentle urging to maybe go to the gym more or take that night class will turn into a full-blown criticism of your beer gut and lack of professional ambition. While initially the sex will be earthy and sensual (although there WILL be a towel laid down and don’t you DARE get a drop on the sheets), eventually it will dry up completely. If that’s not enough to turn you away, the placement of the humidifier, nasal strips, compression socks, white cotton granny panties and neck pillow, to ensure a restful, healthful sheep should make you run for the hills. Unless you’re another Virgo, in which case you can live happily in a little hypoallergenic bubble with her till the end of your days.

Libra (September 23rd – October 22nd)

Think back to when you met your pretty Libra lady. Remember how she smiled, tossed her hair and gazed at you as if you were the only person on the planet, and the most interesting one to boot? Remember how you left feeling like royalty? Well you’re not. She does that with everyone. It’s how she gets her way.
It doesn’t take long for the ‘psycho’ to come out in Libra, but she’s so skilled at making people see what she wants them to see, you may very well never notice. She’s so socially graceful, so charming, and such a skilled conversationalist that manipulation comes as easy to her as breathing. She has such a wide variety of friends and lovers, and is so adept at keeping these people from meeting, that she doesn’t just live a double life, she lives a tripe, quadruple life. But damn if she isn’t so sweet and feminine and look to you like the big strong man (or woman) you are that you’ll ever believe a word I’m saying! (Believe me- I’m a Libra myself). In the end though, it’s not the lying, half-truths and manipulating that will do you in- it’s the indecisiveness. This woman can debate and deliberate till the cows come home. Lucky for you, Libra tends to be rather self-involved, so she probably won’t notice that you’ve packed your bags and left the city till you’re long gone. She was too busy debating the merits of ketchup versus catsup.

Scorpio (October 23rd – November 21st)

I’m not going to even bother explaining how the Scorpio woman reeled you in. Chances are, it was a mixture of sexual titillation, fierce intelligence and “The Rules”. This woman knows the game, and she plays it perfectly.
Should you cross her though…well…don’t say you haven’t been warned. Scorpios natural ruler is Pluto, the planet of death, destruction and regeneration. Their secondary ruler is Mars, the planet named after the God of War. It’s a potent combination. She can play a long game, and oftentimes will. Here is the woman that will live with the knowledge of your affair for months on end, smiling sweetly at you the whole time, while putting arsenic in your coffee. Here is the woman who will track down the person you’re sleeping with and begin torturing them with anonymous notes and threats, hang-up phone calls, drive-bys and all other sorts of mental manipulation. Miss Scorpio will do it so craftily everyone will think that your lover is the crazy one. Here is the woman that will, in the end, find your prized possessions and light them on fire, while she makes you watch, and then walk out the door with your childhood best friend, who she’d locked under her spell from the first moment she found out you’d wronged her. Revenge isn’t just a dish best served cold- it’s her favorite dish in the world.

Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st )

Sags, the archers of the zodiac, are known for their athleticism, sense of humor and chummy attitudes. Never ones to take themselves seriously, they are the proverbial ‘lampshade-on-the-head’ party girls, and their live-and-let-live attitude and bawdy jokes will have you clutching your sides. Much like their male counterparts, the archer lady doesn’t see the point in dilly-dallying around before jumping into bed with you. The reason you’ll stay? Even though she’s easy, she has almost no-hang ups about antiquated notations of female sexuality, and she won’t blow up your phone with questions about “Where is this going?” or “I never do that, I hope you don’t think I’m a slut!”
The real reason she’s not blowing up your phone? She’s too busy doing it with everyone. The woman has no concept of fidelity, and when you catch her cheating for the seventh or eighth time (and she won’t try and hide it, Sags are all about honesty), she’ll be baffled as to why you’re mad. She’ll then becoming incensed that you are trying to ‘own’ her, and the dishes will fly. Along with the television. And the radio. And your weight set. And anything else she can get her hands on. All the while she’s destroying your house, she’ll be telling you exactly how SHE feels, with zero regard to your feelings in the coarsest language possible. My best advice for the person dating the Sagittarius lady? Go into it viewing the relationship as fun, not fidelity, don’t ever except to tie her down and make sure you’ve got the number for a good clinic on speed dial in case you need an emergency shot of penicillin for when she comes back from her road trip from Vegas. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas- except for that pesky case of the clap she brought home with her.

Capricorn: (December 22nd – January 19th)

Chances are you met your Capricorn lady somewhere defined as ‘classy’, like a high-end auction, law-firm meetup group or interning at the White House. That’s because the girl has goals. She’s ambitious in the truest sense of the word, and nothing stops her from achieving her goals. Not even you. Especially you.
She’s the kind of girl you can take home to mom, with her twinsets, pearls and perfectly highlighted hair. She’s extremely intelligent, and will be able to talk recipes with your mother and politics with your father. She’s a firecracker in the bedroom, and most kinks won’t make her bat an eye. But before you sit there thinking “what’s the problem?” let’s take a look at YOU, dear reader. Chances are, you’ve got a family with money, connections or some sort of family name. She’s not with you because she likes you. She’s with you because of what she can get from you. You’re nothing but a peg on her way to the top, and once she’s reached the top of whatever it is she’s chosen (and believe me, she will), you’ll have served your purpose and be tossed aside. If the sex was good she may keep you around for a couple more years to release her frustrations, or even convince you to marry her, but proceed with caution. The Capricorn lady only has #1 in mind, and that sure as hell ain’t you.

Aquarius: (January 20th – February 18th)

The water-bearers are charming and quirky. You probably met her when she was volunteering at the animal shelter you adopted your dog at. She’ll always be unconventional and intellectual, and probably seems fairly easy going and upbeat. She’s the truest humanitarian, and knows her mind- when she makes a decision, she sticks with it.
Things will start to sour when all that unconventional, quirky energy becomes just plain annoying. You’ll struggle to follow her logic since she’ll speak in obscure quotes and non-sequiturs. Aquarius being the most detached sign of the zodiac, you’ll find she doesn’t really have any friends, just tons of different acquaintances from different backgrounds she collects. She has no idea how to relate to another person, be it physically or emotionally, so when your grandmother dies and you’re weeping and distraught, she’ll probably just stare at you and wonder why you’re crying- the woman was 87 years old, after all.
She won’t waste much time worrying about it beyond that, and just shrug her shoulders and stick her nose back in her book about underwater basket weaving or whatever asinine subject she’s interested in at that moment. Sexually she’s incredibly selfish- again, because, it’s because she’s got a loner complex and is completely disconnected from her partner or friends. She’ll let you do all the work, never once thinking to reciprocate. Eventually you probably won’t even be the one to leave- you’ll just wake up one day and find that she’s up and left the country to work with underprivileged llamas in Nepal, leaving behind nothing but her astronomy diorama and a few science fiction books she couldn’t fit in her suitcase.

Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)

No doubt you met this girl at a bar, because she loves to get her drink on. And her coke on. And her molly on. Anything to get blotto. Pisces are the addicts of the zodiac. While at first all that drinking and recreational drug use seems fun and free-spirited, it quickly turns into a string of crushing hangovers, accompanied by an empty bank account from all those trips to the bar.
The Pisces woman has even less ambition than the Gemini. Oh she’ll work if she has to, but she prefers to spend her days and nights at the bottom of a bottle, writing poetry that makes no sense, smearing paint on a canvas or simply staring at the sky. She’s got a martyr complex, and you’re fights will start because “you have no idea what it’s like to be her”. She’ll become morose and dark, speaking in short phrases and thinly veiled suicide attempts. Occasionally you’ll see her temper come out, with its drunk, lashing tongue and uncontrollable crying fits. Eventually you’ll recover from this one in a rehab facility of your own, once you finally realize that all the tears, booze and drugs were never really going to end in suicide and finally get up the strength to come up for air and dry off and dry out from your Pisces lady.

How Each Of The Zodiac Signs FLIRT…

 

 

For some people, flirting is a skill that comes as naturally as breathing. But for others, the art of flirting is a daunting task that can turn them into a blithering idiot. Sometimes it can be hard to predict how a person will show their interest, but it’s not such a mystery if you know a bit about their star sign. Here’s exactly how each of the zodiac signs flirts!

Aries’ flirting style is confident, assertive and anything but subtle.

Confident bold couple

Arians will draw you in with their daring and brilliant escapades. They are attracted to fearless and adventurous spirits, so be ready to play along if you want to keep them interested. Their flirting style is robust, competitive and even exhausting, but the sheer thrill of it all will keep you coming back for more. They can be quite playful so expect games, arm wrestling and all sorts of shenanigans!

Taurus is an endurance flirter who plays the long game.

Couple flirting at the bar

Taurus is a bit more restrained when it comes to flirting preferring to play the long game. They’ll wait til all of the show-offs in the room have run out of steam before swooping in to make a move. They can be a little bit nervous and self-conscious in their approach but their shy style can also be cute as f*ck. They are protective and reassuring but never desperate, instead they hold steady until they’ve gotten so under your skin that you come to your senses.

Gemini is a chaotic and unpredictable flirter who will keep you on your toes.

Surprise kiss

Gemini is the sign of seamless contradictions and their flirting style is no different. Their words can be puzzling and their body language tough to decipher. One moment, they’ll look so boredand distracted that you’ll think they aren’t interested… then a moment later they’ll lunge in for a kiss so passionate that you’ll think they are obsessed. Sure, they can be slightly maddening at times but they’re so intriguing that you’ll keep coming back for more – one date is never enough!

Cancer is a caring and romantic flirt.

Couple behind flowers

Cancer is a lover of romance who will sweep you off your feet with compliments and attentiveness. When they flirt they have a unique ability to make you feel like you’re the only person in whole damn room. When they turn on the charm they can be extremely alluring so watch out. They’ll win you over with their kindness and then make you melt by whispering sweet nothings in your ear.

Leos’ flirting style is regal and haughty.

Classy Leo couple

Often blessed with a magnificent mane of hair and stylish attire the Leo attracts with their presence and then backs it up with unwavering confidence and self worth. They are both sensual and dangerously tactile with their fingers and teeth. At evenings’ end they’ll leave you desperately craving another audience with this royal sign – should you survive!

Virgos’ flirting style is subtle, sophisticated and alluring.

Virgo couple wining and dining

Perfectionists, Virgo are hard on themselves and everyone else. They are often elegant poised and sharply turned out. Their style of flirting can sometimes seem more like a job interview with a careful selection of criteria to be addressed. But they will soften over time and begin to flirt in more overtly whether that be by laughing at your unfunny jokes and even dishing out a well-crafted compliment.

Libras’ flirting style is fun, cheeky and enthusiastic.

Libra flirting

Libra will flirt with a stick – they’re just compelled to make everyone and everything feel wanted and loved. They can be breathy, innocent, wide eyed and very touchy when they’re into someone. Sometimes recipients will misinterpret a Libra flirt fest for something more substantial. Best just to enjoy their charm and go for something more casual before bringing up commitment.

Scorpios’ flirting style is deep, direct and downright hypnotic.

Scorpio flirting

Scorpios can be rather direct when it comes to flirting and showing interest in someone. They will stare you out from across the room whilst looking eloquently disheveled. Tactile and darkly humorous they flirt with precision and the promise of illicit activities. Be assured they only weave their magic on those they are genuinely attracted to… but when they turn on their magnetic charm they can be simply intoxicating!

Sagittarius is contagiously happy ‘n’ hilarious when they flirt.

Happy fun flirters

When a Sagittarius flirts they like to keep things fun, lighthearted and upbeat. They will capture your attention with their dry sense of humor and ability to tell a damn good story. Should they try to ‘woo’ you they will be energetic and active in their approach – expect a whole lot of craziness and hilarity.

Capricorns flirting style is low-key and all about ‘less is more’.

Capricorn flirting

The Capricorn doesn’t mess around with fake bravado when trying to win your affections – their flirting style is much more casual. First they’ll charm you with both their their intellect and authenticity. Then they’ll lay a compliment on you that’s so thoughtful that you’ll know they are paying attention. They understand that less can sometimes be more and that there’s no reason to rush a good thing!

Aquarius flirts by drawing you in with their wit and tantalizing your mind.

Active mind

Aquarians are the types that can make love to your mind without even laying a finger on you. They are deeply aroused by intelligence and knowledge, and turned off by boorishness and ignorance. They can find physical flirting to be a bit of a mystery. But they’re naturals at peaking your curiosity and tantalizing your mind until you’re left wanting more.

Pisces’ flirting style in awkwardly cute and reserved… until they start drinking!

Pisces flirting at party

The Pisces can go from being cautious and timid one moment – to shamelessly promiscuous in just one of two stiff drinks. When sober they can be rather shy when it comes to flirting. But when they’re in the middle of drunken flirtation it’s not uncommon to hear people scream “get a room!” as Pisces engages in displays of affection.

The Zodiac Signs When DRUNK…

 

 

Whether they’re tipsy or totally drunk – each of the signs have different shenanigans that they get up to when they’ve been drinking. Some will become emboldened and turn into the life of the party whilst others wind up in the kitchen crying over drama. Read ahead and find out whether you’re a two-pot-screamer or still standing steady after a keg or three!

Aries: a crazy drunk that’s like an extra from an Indiana Jones movie.

Crazy drunk Aries

This sign loves an alcoholic beverage and has the capacity to drink most of their friends under the table. The only problem is that – as risk takers – adrenaline usually kicks in at some point – and that’s when you suddenly find them walking a tightrope between two 20 story buildings. It also won’t be easy to talk them down because that would mean losing face. Try offering a bribe of one more drink!

Taurus: bolt everything down and hide the crystal!

Taurus and friends drinking

Taurus is usually a happy drunk and good fun to have around. They will also manage to still ensure that friends and family have a safe ride home or a shoulder to cry on. The only time a Taurus causes drunken chaos is when the inner dancer takes over – and the bull in the China shop is unleashed – arms and legs will rotate like cyclonic windmills. The bull has been known to take out an eye or smash a prized Ming vase when in the midst of a drunken dancing frenzy!

Cancer: messy and melancholy – but they will smile through the tears.

Cancer drunk with friends

Cancer are not the tidiest of drunks and are fond of channeling their best Irish poet when hammered. They weep for lost friends and lovers but will also be philosophical and toast to new beginnings. They miss their home their dog, their first grade teacher and often lose their wallet and phone in a night of reminiscing. As Cancer gently rolls into a ball of drunken memories put a blanket over them – they’ll be fine in the morning.

Gemini: fine one minute – a walking disaster the next.

Gemini being a walking disaster

Gemini look like they’ve got everything under control, funny, talkative and steady on their feet – then suddenly – without warning they’re vomiting into a pot plant and talking gibberish. They are the “surprise” drunk at any function that leaves everyone wondering what happened. The Gemini drinking threshold is also unpredictable – sometimes it’s one glass and sometimes it’s a whole bar fridge! Be prepared for turbulence!

Leo: not always the life of the party.

Leo looking around

Just because zodiac royalty Leo can be flashy and loud it doesn’t follow that alcohol produces the same traits. Often they transform after a few drinks into introspective observers – keen not to lose control or act in a less than regal fashion. They are also prone to drunken sulkiness if not given the right amount of attention – if they’re in a bad mood – they can descend into hammered grumpiness.

Virgo: it’s not their drug of choice.

Virgo woman with a hangover

Virgos are not usually big drinkers – they don’t like the smell or the taste and would much prefer pharmaceuticals. They also have the worst hangovers of all the signs and you will hear about it for days. When they do imbibe their normal lack of tact can become full throttle and friendships may be lost. Best keep Virgo sober and looking after others.

Libra: most likely to break out into drunken song.

Libra singing karaoke

The Libra personality love a bit of drunken Karaoke and somehow can manage to coax even the most anti social attendees into a round of tacky 90s hits. Infectious in their enthusiasm they can turn a dull event into the party of the year. The only down side is that, if fully tanked they become loose with their hands and lips – and spread the love a little too far.

Scorpio: able to weave beautiful drunken stories.

Scorpio telling drunken stories

Alcohol loosens Scorpios tongue and sting and they transform into fabulous storytellers, weaving magical tales about themselves and friends. It’s not important if these stories are true just let Scorpio take you on a journey of the imagination. This sign is also able to elegantly pass out wherever they stand or lie – that’s when you know the party is finished.

Sagittarius: always the ones with a lampshade on their head.

Drunk Sagittarius with lampshade on head

Sagittarius are practical jokers that devise elaborate pranks when drunk to play on friends and family. Sometimes they do misjudge other people’s understanding of what actually constitutes for humor and end up in the dog house or a holding cell – just make sure you don’t join them!

Capricorn: social drinkers who let their guard down after a few beverages.

Capricorn having social drinks with friends

The Capricorn sign loves a social drink or two and will be sure to touch base with everyone in the room about everything. They can indulge in a bit of grandstanding, when over the limit, and bang on about politics or portfolios. But it’s one of the few times that they actually allow themselves to let their guard down and not worry about all of the bullshit.

Aquarius: helps them to de-stress but don’t look for them when they disappear – they’ve had enough!

Aquarius sleeping at the bar

Alcohol helps the Aquarius to alleviate the pressure that comes from having to save the world on a daily basis. As they unwind conversation will go from deep and meaningful to superficial and gossipy. But they also know when the limit has been reached and will simply disappear without saying goodbye – don’t take offence – they’re just done.

Pisces: sometimes its like watching a train wreck, you can’t look away!

The tipsy Pisces

The Pisces sign is a master of self medication. If going through a down period they can get quite sentimental and loose with secrets. Their tolerance for liquor is low and some of the crazier ones have been know to end up in hospital with alcohol poisoning. However – if happy and settled – this sign can be one of the sweetest drunks around – spreading joy and fairy dust wherever they go!

This Is What Triggers Your Anxiety, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

 

 

Aries

(March 21st to April 19th)

You don’t think life can function without you properly. You’re always go, go, go even when you’re not feeling like yourself. It often causes you to feel overwhelmed and stressed about the tasks you struggle to accomplish. Give yourself a break, life will continue to move forward without you. You don’t have to always be the superhero.

Taurus

(April 20th to May 21st)

You fear messing up too much; you stress yourself out about missing deadlines or not making it to a meeting on time. You fear making people upset and you make yourself sick over people being mad at you or not thinking you’re good enough. Things will work out, just trust. You often make the problems much worse than they actually are in your head.

Gemini

(May 22nd to June 21st)

You let the little things get to you and it causes you a lot of stress. You would benefit by mind calming activities to stop you from screaming at the person who pulled out in front of you on the road or from thinking someone is stupid for pronouncing a word wrong.

Cancer

(June 22nd to July 22nd)

Your anxiety goes through the roof when you feel unsafe. Walking alone at night makes your heart feel like it’s in your stomach. But you also can’t take criticism or people staring at you, it all makes you extremely anxious. Don’t repress your emotions, breathe and tell people what’s on your mind. You need reassurance to feel a little better.

Leo

(July 23rd to August 22nd)

Anytime you’re not in control of a situation you fill with anxiety. You need to know that things will work out even if you’re not constantly behind the wheel controlling every decision you’re involved in. Sometimes you just need to cut yourself a break from worrying and just follow along to someone else’s plan.

Virgo

(August 23rd to September 22nd)

Your trigger is overthinking. You think way too much and you’re your own worst nightmare when it comes to causing your anxiety. You overthink most decisions and freak yourself out, but once you start doing it you are okay. You need to trust more that things will be okay, write things down and don’t always assume the worst.

Libra

(September 23rd to October 22nd)

You like things fair, anything you feel is unfair completely stresses you out. You tend to overthink the pros and cons of situations instead of acting in the moment, you need to breathe and just respond in the moment, instead of sitting on things for hours rushing through all the different scenarios in your mind.

Scorpio

Capricorn

(December 22nd to January 20th)

You are the root of your anxiety. You put way too much pressure on yourself and set strict deadlines for yourself. You feel frustrated if you don’t meet them. Stop thinking about the “what ifs” and live in the now.

Aquarius

(January 21st to February 18th)

If things aren’t your way you get anxiety over it. You try to clarify things and you get stressed by time, easily. You try to do too much at once, you need to slow down and relax. Sometimes things won’t go your way, but that doesn’t mean it’s wrong or isn’t going to work out.

Pisces

(February 19th to March 20th)

Feeling overexposed makes you anxious. You hate public speaking and it makes you stressed, just like big crowds and too many people in your area. You can make yourself sick over the invasion of personal space, but it will all be okay. Just breathe through it.

Cancer

Here’s What #Basic Fall Activity You’ll Mostly Likely Indulge In, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

 

 

ARIES

March 21 – April 20

You are energetic and passionate about everything you do (and competitive of course), so your #basic fall activity is totally pumpkin-carving. It all starts with getting the best of the best pumpkins (because you can’t imagine settling for anything less). You’ll probably also host a competition for the best-carved pumpkin, quickest-carved pumpkin, most-amazing-tasting-pumpkin-seeds, and pretty much anything else that gives you a chance at beating out your friends. You can’t help it, you just love a good race. (And a good post-win pumpkin selfie.)

TAURUS

April 21 – May 21

You crave security, stability, and safety, so when it comes to October activities and getting the sh*t scared out of you, you’d much rather it be somewhere where you know you won’t be actually killed by that guy with the chainsaw. Your favorite #basic fall activity is a hayride—calm, predictable, and still fun. On a hayride you can kick back, sip on some spiked hot chocolate, laugh with friends, and not have the nagging fear that a clown with a knife is going to pop out from around the corner. Well, at least you hope.

GEMINI

May 22 – June 21

You hate being bored. I mean hate. So anything slow, dull, or mundane? Nope, you’re not about that life. When it comes to #basic fall activities, your favorite is a Halloween-themed booze cruise. There you can socialize, wear a crazy costume, try as many spooky beers as your heart desires, and be constantly on the go. Oh, and get shamelessly drunk of course.

CANCER

June 22 – July 22

You tend to be protective, so you’re all about the #basic haunted house this fall. This gives you the opportunity to save your friends/significant other/family members from serial killers hiding behind doors or rabid werewolves lurking in the woods right outside the porch, while still getting a good laugh at how scared your friends/fam actually get. (Because lol, right?)

LEO

July 23 – August 22

You love when everyone around you is having a good time, so your ideal #basic fall activity is, of course, hosting a costume party. You’ll go all out—decorations, spooky spiked drinks, best-dressed contest, even Halloween-themed snacks—all at your pad. You love organizing, creating a fun atmosphere, and being in charge (of course). But even though you can sometimes be a little much (aka slightly bossy), you always have your party-attendees’ best interests at heart. And you’re always down for a good time. Duh.

VIRGO

August 23 – September 22

When it comes to #basic fall activities, you’re the ultimate planner. You’re the one who’s researched where the best Halloween beer-tasting events are in town, or all the local spots to try the pumpkin flavored drinks. It’s halfway through October, but you’ve already attended a Haunted Mud-Run, volunteered at a kid’s costume party, been to at least three haunted houses, and are currently stressed trying to plan the next few weekends because OMG HALLOWEEN IS ALMOST HERE!!

LIBRA

September 23 – October 22

Of all the signs, you’re the most chill, so when it comes to #basic fall activities, you’re all about two things: (1) sitting at Starbucks for hours, sipping on a Pumpkin Spice Latte and chatting with friends or (2) handing out candy on your porch in your pjs. But, if you’re persuaded, you’re the type to most definitely participate in the matching couple costumes. You’re just cute and romantic (and #basic) like that.

SCORPIO

October 23 – November 21

You have a lot of energy. That means your #basic fall activity is definitely a haunted hike. There’s something about the outside air, being on your feet, and taking copious amounts of BFF-on-the-trail selfies (or solo-selfies, since you don’t mind being alone) that just get you pumped.

SAGITTARIUS

November 22 – December 21

As a Sagittarius, you never settle. You’re always looking for the biggest, baddest thing to attend with friends/fam, and you might not admit it, but you’ve been secretly looking at October activities since, like, August. That’s why when it comes to a #basic fall to-do list, you’re all about Halloween-themed amusement parks. Anywhere you can ride rollercoasters, be outside, and occasionally get a good scare is totally you.

CAPRICORN

December 22 – January 20

When it comes to #basic fall activities, you can never decide. When you’re doing one thing, you can’t help but want to be somewhere else—you just want to do it all! Your go-to #basic activity, though, is most definitely Trick-or-Treating. Here you can dress up and get free candy all while sipping on some drinks (because pregame, duh) and then you can head over to a more adult-like party—the best of both worlds for your conflicted mind.

AQUARIUS

January 21 – February 19

You’re a rebel, so when it comes to being #basic, you’re the sign that’s most-likely down to scare as many kids as possible. Whether that’s hiding out by your front door and scaring the pants off of Trick-or-Treaters or screaming bloody murder at any haunted house you attend, you love getting dressed up and making the entire month of October scary AF.

PISCES

February 20 – March 20

You’re the emotional sign, so hands down, your favorite #basic fall activity is costume shopping. You love getting a group together and hitting up the stores, trying on ridiculous outfits, taking sh*t-tons of pictures, and bonding over Halloween happy hour drinks afterwards. You’re all about being around your buds, laughing, talking about life, and, of course, finding costumes that look cute together, because #squadgoals.

If You Notice Any Of These 3 Symptoms You Suffer From Post Narcissist Stress Disorder (PNSD)

 

 

Similar to PTSD or post-traumatic stress disorder … People who have once shared their life with a narcissist may go through some corresponding occurrences which will resemble the symptoms of PTSD. We may call this PNSD or post-narcissist stress disorder.

The post-traumatic stress disorder develops after a person has experienced an event or action which causes intense fear, disbelief, helplessness or horror.

While it is common to have a period of adjusting and coping after a narcissist, for many of us, these periods of difficult adjustments may continue for quite a while. By taking some time, attitude adjustment, letting go of the narcissist and with taking care of yourself, such traumatic reactions will get better and disappear completely as well.

Any factor can bring on a PNSD. Even some things as simple as the familiar smell of his/her cologne on a stranger walking by … A song playing on the radio, or certain foods. It really does not matter what brings you back to that terrifying nightmare. What matters is that instantly and out-of-the-blue you can get back to a time in your life which was mentally and emotionally disturbing. These kinds of identifiers are called ‘triggers’.

The three main symptoms of PNSD are:

  1. Intrusive memories of the narcissist. These may be some memories which had a sudden onset that was caused by a ‘trigger’. Or memories that are continuous and lingering;
  2. Avoidance and emotional numbering;
  3. Anxiety, as well as increased emotional volatility.

Some of the symptoms of intrusive memories of the narcissist may include the following:

  • Flashbacks of their narcissist’s rages. Images of intense rage or reliving the traumatic event for a few minutes, or even days;
  • Suddenly questioning their own mental stability, because of months or years of abuse and/or gas-lighting when trying to perform some everyday tasks;
  • Difficulties in readjusting their self-esteem and feeling good about themselves in social situations. This is also a result of months/years of emotional, mental, verbal and oftentimes physical abuse;

Some of the symptoms of avoidance and emotional numbing may include the following:

  • Avoiding social situations, as well as people, activities or relationships which the person once enjoyed;
  • Being emotionally numb towards the life and love;
  • Substance abuse, as well as overuse of sleep aids;
  • Problems with the memory;
  • Troubles in concentrating or in performing simple actions;
  • Distancing themselves, or feeling on the apathetic ‘outside’ of conversations;
  • Difficulties in starting new relationships or maintaining close relationships;
  • Cocooning or hiding;
  • Hopelessness about the future.

Some of the symptoms of anxiety, as well as of increased emotional volatility may include the following:

  • Irritability, rage, temper, as well as outburst of anger;
  • Being caught in the gaslighting mode whereas they may have some difficulties in adjusting to some everyday tasks. Questioning their memories, motives, and sanity. Self-doubt and loss of self-confidence;
  • Overwhelming guilt or shame, self-blame and Stockholm syndrome as well;
  • Self-destructive behavior, for example, casual sex with strangers, drinking a lot, not eating in the proper way, quitting their job or even doing drugs;
  • Sleeping troubles;
  • Panic and crying attacks;
  • Being startled easily or frightened easily, as well as jumpy and hypervigilant;
  • Paranoia, or imagining scenarios with worst case possible;
  • Questioning other people about their intents and genuinity, especially with new partners;
  • Relieving some arguments or narcissistic rages in their head.

The narcissist experience may haunt people for a long period of time. It also has the ability to interrupt your daily life, as well as activities, and also invade you at any unforeseen moment.
