Frozen Dead Guys and Bikini Skiers: Some of the Craziest Winter Festivals from Around the World

 

 

 

The calendar tells us that we’ve entered spring, but when many of us look outside it still looks a lot like winter. This season is so cold and bleak that sometimes it feels like we’re all trapped indoors for months. Luckily some cities around the world hold some amazing and weird festivals that help us forget how cold and miserable we all are. Let’s take a look at some of the weirdest.

Kate Upton Wore a Super Sheer Dress at Her Wedding And People Are Losing It

 

 

When Kate Upton said “I do” to Houston Astro pitcher Justin Verlander last November, the blonde bombshell, 25, donned a classic bridal look. Think: white, long-sleeve Valentino gown coupled with a matching cathedral-length veil. Oh, and loads of sexy lace. But while the model offered us some insight into the wedding via photos on social media, what we didn’t see was the ensemble she slipped into afterward— till now, that is. Read on below.

The Bad Dating Habit You Need To Break ASAP, According To Your Zodiac Sign

 

 

 

Aries: Coming On Too Strong

I get it, Aries. You’ve got a ton of pent-up energy and you’re dying to show your date what you’re all about — but be careful of doing too much, too fast. You have a tendency to come on way too strong at the get-go, leaving your date to figure out how they can even balance their personality with yours (and often making them feel that they have no say in where this relationship is going).
“Aries want to consume all of their dates’ time and energy in the beginning of the relationship, and then burn out too quickly, leaving your date in a whirlwind of your non-stop energy,” says Furiate.

Taurus: Focusing On The Little Things

You appreciate the finer things in life, Taurus, but sometimes this works to your detriment. Be careful of saying “no” to too many invites and ideas from potential dates, and make sure you’re focusing on what’s most important when you do go out.
“Tauruses may put more emphasis and value on what their date is wearing, the ambiance of the environment, and the quality of the good or service,” says Furiate. “They often forget about the value of the person sitting next to them”

Gemini: Not Listening

You’ve got a lot to say, Gemini, and I’m sure your date is interested to hear! Just don’t forget that they’ve got thoughts to share as well (and you’ll never have a chance to get to know them if you do all of the talking!). Keep the long stories about yourself to a minimum, and remind yourself that listening is a two-way street.
“Geminis spend more time telling long stories about themselves,” explains Furiate. “Time runs out (and so does the desire) for their date to share their thoughts.”

Cancer: Talking Too Much About Family

Cancers are all about family — which is amazing! But remember: Diving into your family’s history and dynamics too soon can scare some dates off. And beyond that, your close attachment to your family might come off as nervousness to pursue a real relationship down the line.
“Cancers tend to still be attached to the apron strings, but are fearful of creating their own family,” says Furiate. “They tend to keep a date lingering and wondering, as they’re timid about moving toward a commitment.”

Leo: Going Overboard With Romantic Gestures

You’re passionate, Leo, and so romantic, which your dates will love. I mean, everyone has fantasized about someone filling their bedroom with candles and roses — and you’re just the type to make a lovely gesture like this. But your passion combined with your, um, flair for the dramatic might come off as a little needy and self-involved at times, so be careful not to go overboard (or flip every romantic gesture into an opportunity for praise).
“Dates may love the warmth of Leos, yet feel burned by their need to absorb the spotlight,” Furiate says.

Virgo: Expecting Perfection

The “perfect person” may not exist, but that doesn’t mean you’re about to stop looking, Virgo. While it’s great to have high standards, it’s important to remember that, as Hannah Montana would say, “nobody’s perfect.” Nit-picking the little details or abandoning a date as soon as you uncover a flaw is only going to hold you back from finding a great relationship.
“Virgos tend to carry on elaborate fantasies about the perfect scenario with a person,” explains Furiate. “When the date is not able to fulfill this perfection in reality, Virgos will quickly walk away without an explanation.”

Libra: Leaving Everything In Their Date’s Hands

You’re chill, Libra, and really just aiming to please. But sometimes that laid-back mentality (paired with your indecisive nature ) can make it tricky to date you. From where you two should grab dinner to leaning in for the first kiss, Libras tend to leave everything in their dates’ hands, and that’s a lot of pressure to put on someone else.
“Libras tend to wait for the other person to make the first move, and they often second-guess their decision to commit or to not commit,” Furiate says. “This often leaves the other person demanding a Libra make up their mind (if they haven’t already walked away).”

Scorpio: Overanalyzing Their Date’s Actions

Scorpios overthink everything, which can be especially dangerous when you’re dating someone new. Be careful not to overthink and analyze every little thing your date does, or you’ll drive yourself crazy trying to figure out what he or she really means (when it was probably nothing!).
“Scorpios tend to think too deeply about what their date is saying,” says Furiate. Be careful not to jump conclusions too soon!

Sagittarius: Cancelling Plans

You’re wild, Sagittarius, and the life of the party. But I also feel like y’all are the type to line up a back-up booty call on your way to a dinner date. You tend to cancel plans any time something more exciting pops up, even if that means calling off a date at the last minute. You love a good adventure, but sometimes your free spirit leads to flaky (and not super thoughtful) behavior.
“A Sagittarius will also call at the last minute to want to hook up,” explains Furiate. “It’s hard to get Sag to agree to a long-term commitment because they relish their freedom and spontaneity.”

Capricorn: Focusing Too Much On Work (And Not Enough on Play!)

Capricorns, like mullets, always put business in the front — and you generally put work before pleasure. It’s great that you’re hard-working and ambitious, Capricorns, but don’t forget that dating is supposed to be an enjoyable experience!
“Capricorns should break the habit of treating their date or partner like a business client when it comes to fitting them into their hectic schedules,” says Furiate.

Aquarius: Sending Mixed Signals

You’re full of surprises, Aquarius, which is both endearing and confusing to the people you date. One minute, you’ll seem uninterested or reserved; the next, you’ll be infatuated with your date, aiming to sweep them off their feet! But that all or nothing, hot or cold mentality sends totally mixed signals to potential partners, leaving them wondering how you really feel.
“They may send mixed signals,” explains Furiate. “But give an Aquarian the space and freedom to come [to a decision] freely and they can become a loyal companion.”

Pisces: Going MIA

Pisces, my people! We’re introverts by nature, and need a lot of personal space to recharge. While it’s great that we know what we need and are totally comfortable on our own, we also need to be careful not to slip into our own worlds and become totally unresponsive dates that we might be interested in!
“Pisces may take weeks or months to call you back,” says Furiate. “They may become MIA for long periods of time, then return and expect their date to be okay with that extended absence.”
We’re more thoughtful than that, Pisces. Actually, let’s all do better and break these habits in 2018.

The Best Music Festival Hairstyle For You, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

 

 

You’re all about the fashion, flower child. Being Coachella-bound means that the cutest parts of your closet are coming out for a weekend of sunshine and bliss with your besties. Even if you’re not headed to the California desert in particular, you’ve pretty much planned out your outfit with a lot of help from Pinterest (of course). All of your accessories are oh-so-trendy and you found a sweet pair of sunglasses that you’ll probably have on in all of your sunny selfies. Now, it’s just time to figure out the best music festival hairstyle for you. And lucky for you, the stars know exactly the look you’re going for.
Festival season is all about being bohemian, or even a little edgy. You’ll see so many street style stars amongst the crowd, rocking the boldest fashion like it came right off the runway. The key to getting in front of the camera is to go into the grounds with confidence, and put a lot of passion and personality into what you wear. Style in general is such an individual thing, and this is the time to let you effortlessly shine.
The weekend will be pretty long when it’s all said in done, but you’re in the mood to make once in a lifetime memories — so, you really don’t mind. Surrounding yourself with all the good vibes and seeing your favorite artists live will leave you feeling ultimately inspired. But, right now, the universe wants you to focus on your festival hairstyle.

Aries: Braids

Confidence comes so easy to you, Aries. But, figuring out what hairstyle would be best for you this festival season has proved to be a bit of a challenge. You want to be the best and brightest in the crowd, and plan on dancing until dawn in your ‘do.
You’ll probably get yourself to the spots right in front of the stage, so that you can see your favorite artists as up close and personal as possible. These double boxer braids will make it easy to have so much energy and an unforgettable experience.

Taurus: Straight

You like to keep things simple, Taurus. So, leaving your hair straight seems like the right thing to do, according to the stars. Doing something that’s rather low-maintenance will let you focus on the natural love and beauty that comes with such surroundings. It’s a look as reliable as you.
Truth is, festival season is right in the peak of spring and summer, and you’re in this for the music more than the street style competition. You’ll probably post at least one picture on social media, but you know that the really opportunity of festival season isn’t just in your outfit.

Gemini: Double Buns

There are always two sides to your story, Gemini. On one hand, you’re a conversation starter and social butterfly. And on the other, you like to keep to yourself and can be a bit shy with sharing your life stories. The music festival scene will bring out the best in you, and you’ll find yourself making new friends everywhere you go.
A hairstyle that is fun and flirty just the same will be perfect for you, according to the stars. These double buns will be a trendy addition to your outfit, and attract all of those people to your sweet personality.

Cancer: Ponytail

Nothing can stop you, Cancer — except for maybe yourself. You love music because it speaks to your soul on every single level. Getting close to people is kind of out of your comfort zone, and you find yourself turning down experiences sometimes, just because there are going to be strangers in the mix.
But, your hairstyle for festival season can be a bit more straightforward. You have enough fuss already, so putting your hair up in a ponytail will take all of your worries away and let the good times roll. Truth is, with so much summer sun, anything more than this effortless look would be a bit of a fuss.

Leo: Dyed

It should probably be you up there on that stage, Leo. Your lion side comes out in your style and social situations, when you can be beautifully bold. And for this festival season, the stars think you should take those technicolor tones in your personality and put it where people can see it.
Dying your hair might seem a little daring, and maybe you’ll just stick to a nice ombré effect — that way it’s not around forever past festival season. But, this look will surely make it easy for you to stand out in the crowd. So, why not do something whimsical with your style?

Virgo: Flower Crown

You’re an Earth sign, Virgo. So, it’s only right that you pick your favorite flowers and put them in your hair. From the minute you get onto the grounds of your music festival, you’ll most likely be in a sea of flower crowns. They’re truly everybody’s go-to hairstyle, because they look so perfectly delicate in pictures.
Maybe you’ll get one that has big roses, or stick to some simple little sunflowers on a string. You tend to be a bit shy, so blending into the crowd this way seems just fine for your zodiac sign.

Libra: Beach Waves

You’re so lovely, Libra. And your hairstyle for festival season will bring the same vibe with only the best beach waves. Braid your hair the night before, or bring a travel-sized curling iron along for the trip. You don’t want to make much of a fuss over any part of your look, and these loose curls will always snag you the likes on social media.
The thing you’re excited for most this festival season is being part of that unreal atmosphere that happens every time people come together and listen to live music. Nothing seems to unite a crowd more that singing along to songs that will simply never get old.

Scorpio: Pigtails

Channel all of your passion in some pigtails, Scorpio. When you first started thinking about your festival style, you knew you wanted something comfortable and cute just the same. Showing off your personality is important to you, because you tend to already wear your heart on your sleeve. So, the stars thought that this hairstyle would be the best for balancing out your entire look.
Your friends are just as excited as you are for this experience. You might’ve been the one actually to come up with the idea of going to a music festival together. Any opportunity to make memories with your day ones is worth it, even if you’re all a little broke.
Sagittarius: Short And Sweet
Do something short and sweet with your hairstyle, Sagittarius. You’re always on the move, and never let fashion keep you from making another memory. Sure, you’ve spent some time thinking about your look just like everybody else. But, you’ve also thought about essentials like a polaroid camera and some sunscreen that will make the whole weekend an even better experience.
Maybe you’ll cut your hair, or maybe it’s already sort of short like this. You can still style it with some beach waves, or throw it in a bun just the same. Having options is honestly always a good idea, anyways.

Capricorn: Headband

Let’s get a little practical, Capricorn. You love festival season because music is everywhere in your life. You’ve probably asked for one of those record players for your birthday at one point or another, and seen your favorite artists at local shows all of the time. But, festivals are the big leagues and you want to be fashionable for such a wonderful weekend.
A headband will hold your hair back so that you don’t have to worry about styling it much, while also keeping you so on-trend. You’re probably packing a pair of sneakers and a portable charger as well. Being comfortable is key to having an amazing time with your crew.

Aquarius: Glitter

Throw some glitter in the air and in your hair, Aquarius. This festival season, you’re so celebrating. For one, this has been on your bucket list for forever now, and you’re finally making it to the music scene. You spend a lot of your days daydreaming about the trips you want to take around the world, or the people that give you so much inspiration. You’re already so one-of-a-kind and have that effect on others, but you’d love to let them radiate it right back, too.
Glitter will be an energetic and colorful addition to your look — although, it might not be super easy to get out afterwards. It’s OK, because this weekend, it’s all worth it.

Pisces: Hat

Sleeping is more your style, Pisces. But, you have a lot of appreciation for music and arts as well. Your favorite songs serve as an amazing escape for you, and so seeing these artists perform live is just an essential experience. You’ll surround yourself with your favorite friends, and channel that festival fashion. Adding a hat, though, will show off that more private side of your personality — and not to mention, block out some of that strong sun.
You’re honestly so friendly, and you’ll probably make a few new friends throughout the weekend. Festival season is the best for bringing people together into new social situations. And the universe knows that prepping your hairstyle and festival fashion is a good place to start, because it’s so simply based on your zodiac sign.

These 3 Zodiac Signs Are Likely To Dump You Without Warning, So Don’t Say You Didn’t Know

 

If you’ve never been completely blindsided by a breakup before, you’re lucky. Speaking from personal experience, it hurts like a knife to the heart. My ignorance of what was about to happen made the sting that much more excruciating. Things were going so well in my relationship that I could never have seen it coming. I went over to his apartment to spend the evening with him and I instantly felt like something was off. Then, he broke it off calmly and with conviction, like he had been thinking about ending things for a while. No matter how much I begged him to give our relationship another shot, he wouldn’t budge. The rest is a painful blur. If this is something you definitely don’t want to experience, you need to know that these zodiac signs are likely to dump you without warning: Aries, Aquarius, and Capricorn. If you’re dating someone with their sun, moon, rising, or Venus in any of these signs, you have been warned.
Maybe they lose interest a lot more easily. Maybe they’re way more cutthroat when delivering bad news. Chances are, they just don’t handle breakups well. In my case, I had one terrified Capricorn moon and rising on my hands. However, once the dust settled, we did end up reconciling and we’ve been together for two years now. So hey, on the bright side, these signs are definitely capable of surprising you. All astrology really does is give you the odds. It’s up to us to beat them.

Aries: Falls In Love Fast, Falls Out Even Faster

When an Aries falls for you, it won’t be long before you know it. They pursue you every every ounce of their being, determined to make you theirs. It’ll be such a whirlwind, you won’t know what hit you. An Aries just loves the chase.
It’s once they catch you that you need to worry. It’s not out of the ordinary for an Aries to lose interest as soon as things to start cooling down. Once all the exciting, hot and heavy infatuation dies down, only to be replaced by a calm, stable relationship, an Aries can get bored. They live for drama, exhilaration, and desire. If they’re not getting it from you, they’ll drop the relationship without hesitation. They’ll leave just as abruptly as they arrived. You won’t even have time to see it coming.

Aquarius: One Minute They’re There, And The Next…

An Aquarius has to be coaxed into being in a relationship in the first place. This air sign is extremely afraid of getting too serious too fast. They’re known for being so commitment-phobic that it’s amazing if you’re even in a position to be dumped by one. However, when they do decide to end their relationship, they do it as quickly as possible and with as little effort as possible.
The thing is, they’re just not great at dealing with painful feelings. The sight of you crying makes them extremely uncomfortable. Even more terrifying is the idea of them crying. So, an Aquarius will simply appear to break the news and then disappear without a trace. Hell, they might not even do it in person. They might just leave a note, send a text, or give you a call. That’s how much an Aquarius can’t stand emotional situations.

Capricorn: They’re Done; There’s Not Much More To It

Capricorns look at emotions from a very logical standpoint. They’re also one of the most pessimistic signs in all the zodiac. When they’re serious about you, they’re very confident in the relationship. The second they start having second thoughts, they won’t hang around to analyze them. They’ll cut their losses and move on at the drop of a hat. If their relationship feels anything less than perfect, a Capricorn will have no problem leaving. It also takes them no time at all to make their decision.
Not only do they end things out of nowhere, they won’t sugarcoat the reasons why. They’ll tell you exactly why it’s not working, exactly why it will never work, and then leave you to clean up the mess. No offense to you Capricorns out there but you guys are capable of being pretty cold. Maybe a littlelessbrutal honesty wouldn’t hurt?

What You Need To Expect As You Move Into The Month Of April, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

 

 

Aries

March 21st – April 19th

April will be a month where relaxation is key. It’s time for you to let things unfold organically. After working tirelessly on making these things come to light, now you will reap the labors of your fruits. This month will have you feeling independent in a newfound way and in control of everything you do. Instead of allowing situations control you or letting people determine how you feel about something, you finally feel a sense of power over your emotions. It’s a good feeling, Aries. Run with it. It’s about damn time that you do. Good vibes only from here.

Taurus

April 20th – May 20th

April will be filled with learning experiences. You will spend the month learning what it is you need to do in order to make your life the best it can possibly be. Trial and error. Taurus, it is no doubt that you are currently going through a period of transition in your life. Meaning that you are dealing with lots of changes head-on. Sometimes it seems scary, and sometimes those changes overwhelm you a bit. And you aren’t exactly sure how to deal with so many changes all at once. This month you will learn how to embrace change rather than run away from it. This will help you feel excited about what lies ahead and benefit from opportunities that these changes may bring to you.

Gemini

May 21st – June 20th

As a Gemini, April will be a month of spiritual healing. You will be in touch with your spiritual side, and start focusing on letting go of any bad energy. April will be less romantic for you, and you might even have suspicions about your partner or prospective partner. Let love take he back seat this month, Gemini. It’s a month dedicated to focusing on you and what you really need.

Cancer

June 21st – July 22nd

The month of April will be far from boring and serve as a huge chance to regain the independence you recently lost sight of. You’ll feel more powerful and independent than ever before, and it will be so obvious to others. And although you might still need to ask for help from time to time, you’re entirely convinced that you’ve got this all on your own. Finally. And it feels damn good. Cancer, you can take back control over your life if you choose to. And next month the timing to do so will be in your favor.

Leo

July 23rd – August 22nd

You have been given a lucky break recently, and you will soon find out how lucky you really are. Something didn’t work out the way you wanted it to in the past. And it bothered you for quite some time. But, now things are different, Leo. Good things are coming and you can feel it. April will serve as that major breakthrough you’ve desperately needed. You will finally feel hopeful about something you felt helpless about before. Instead of waiting for things to happen, go out and make them happy. April is the month of no excuses, so quit making them.

Virgo

August 23rd – September 22nd

If you have been neglecting any prior engagements, April will be the month to get back on track. To tie up loose ends, and get yourself back on the right path. Things are moving at a quicker pace than you’re used to. You might feel overwhelmed or hesitant to proceed with something because of this pace. Don’t worry, things are evolving at exactly the right speed they need to.

Libra

September 23rd – October 22nd

As a Libra, April will be a month filled with nostalgia. The haunting past may resurface by mid-month, and someone or something could really take aim at your heart again. If it is a person, they will reopen any unresolved issues and make it difficult to move on from something you thought was once dead. April will be a month of forgiving the past for what it was, and finally putting it to rest. It’s time you let the past go because it still bothers you more than you even realized. Once you make peace with those demons, you will finally be at peace yourself. Let April be a month of forgiving and forgetting Libra.

Scorpio

October 23rd – November 21st

The month of April will be filled with newfound creativity. You will be all over the place with thoughts and ideas. Pour that creativity into projects or new hobbies. Your mind is rich and your imagination is running wild, so embrace it. This month may also stir up some conflict within your close family or even someone you consider to be blood. Usually, you would ignore the situation until it fades away, but this time it might just not fade that quickly. The problem may linger longer than you anticipated, so maybe it’s time to resolve it for good. Use your good energy this month to solve any problems that will help you live a better life.

Sagittarius

November 22nd – December 21st

April will bring happiness and confidence for Sagittarius. You feel on top of the world, on cloud nine, and you can’t help but let it show. Your self-esteem is at an all-time high, and you’re feeling hotter than ever. Your energy levels are skyrocketing as well, making April an overall excellent month for you. You feel good, look good, and want to do good. What could be better than that? Let your radiance glow and inspire others around you to feel the same about themselves. Positive energy is contagious, especially yours.

Capricorn

December 22nd – January 19th

As a Capricorn, April will be a time to focus on your own personal needs. Your mental and physical health are are stake, and you feel the need to take a step back and refocus on what’s important. Take the month to focus on what it is makes you feel good, and what doesn’t. Your health is all you have in life, so make sure you pay close attention to it. If something doesn’t work for you, let go of it. April will be an eye-opening, productive month if you let it be. Taking a break from the mayhem and resting is what you desperately need right now. So what are you waiting for?

Aquarius

January 20th – February 18th

As an Aquarius, you have the urge to change something in your life for the better. You have envisioned a part of your life to be way different than it actually is, and this month you will have a strong desire to finally make that change. You may go about these changes in an aggressive manner because it is in your nature to do so. Slow down, and progressively make those changes. Change is good, but only if you’re utilizing it in the right ways. April will all around be a month of new, exciting changes.

Pisces

February 19th – March 20th

April will have you feeling powerful and with a strong desire to find a romantic connection that’ll last. You’ll focus less on looks and more on what’s inside. You no longer crave a sexual connection only, but an emotional connection as well. You want to find your equal, and this month will be the beginning of your quest to find them! Pisces, these things cannot be rushed, and while it’s great to have an open mind and open heart, it’s going to take time. You may need to wait a while for the right person to come your way, but when they do, it will be well worth the wait.

Remember that the general interpretations of your characteristics are not definite to your sign. Your birth chart is unique in relation to the time, year, and place you were born. What you read below can be integrative to your sun sign, and it’s definitely important to consider your Midheaven and Rising signs to better understand your own behavior.

Disclaimer: If you are not much of a social media user, you will have a difficult time relating to any of these. I did not take into account the zodiac personalities who don’t use/rarely use social media.

Aries (March 21st-April 19th): “My social media profile is the pixel version of my trophy case.”

“Trophy” for an Aries means literally anything you are proud of or that you see is a reward in your life. This can mean your literal trophies, victories, lover, best friend, and for some, your child! You go through waves where you actually check and post on social media. Basically, if an Aries did something they see as remarkable, count on them being online for a few days. Your higher standards do limit you from posting the details of your life. But… your achievements and life overall are quite impressive and empowering. So people still love your profile anyways.

You review your friends, their mommas, their friends’ mommas, and an article they share about how you can invest more into your love life. You actually reply to some people who think you’re “sketch”— “grinding” is a more suiting adjective. Ugh, so you also stay off social media so you aren’t distracted from the leadership positions or devotion to your scholastic, athletic, or artistic talent. You go back and forth because you can’t focus on one thing at a time when you want the time to do all. Then sometimes social media is out of the picture overall…. until you accomplished something else worth posting about.

With Aries, it’s honestly as unpredictable as your life.

Taurus (April 20th-May 20th): “…. but first, let me take a selfie.”

The funniest thing about you, Taurus, is that your social media presence is actually pretty darn good. Your profile isn’t ever overbearing, but you want it to reveal you. People enjoy you on social media because you have something different to offer — which most Tauruses see being called “different” as the ultimate compliment. It’s also common to see people of your sign post selfies when you’re feelin’ yourself. Whether it is photography, artsy, or high-quality pictures, you definitely have it going on, Taurus. Your life comes off as exciting… even if that field you took a picture in was actually your backyard.

So yeah, you want people to take a double take of your Insta or Twitter in the online scene…. but not in person. You’re reserved by nature with an outgoing side you try masking at times. You may even be somewhat selective of your posting. Even as a less avid social media user you still hold some image for yourself. Away from the phone screen and in reality, however, you are probably in your sweats, hair unwashed for two days, head down… praying to God no one notices you.

… But aside from that, you’ll go and do something productive… for the ‘gram.

Gemini (May 21st-June 20th): “My profile is a Guess Who board game… but instead it’s my multiple personalities.”

The struggle, Gemini. You’re actually really confusing because on one hand, your social media is on fire. Artsy pics are a must because, like, no one can have a page that looks like yours. Something about how much you confuse yet fascinate people just makes you tick. You must have good quality pictures and posts that show your artsy, intellectual, and/or social sides, depending on which one Gemini feels like that day. And perhaps you try finding a way to incorporate all 5 sides of you, depending on which Gemini you are. (This is a sign that requires an understanding of an individual’s birth chart because their complex mind applies different traits.)

And of course, many struggle understanding you because you are a rebel by logic. As the conductor of the hot mess express, your social media profile is one of the first pit stops. Unless you randomly decide the reserved side of Gemini should rarely ever post because you’re too MIA to even care. Meanwhile, you stay somewhat updated (maybe every 3 to 6 months) on pictures of you up so when people try to online stalk you, they have at least something to look at.

Guess who?! Rebellious Gemini? Cuffed Gemini (the wild card)? No Gemini? The world may never know.

Cancer (June 21st-July 22nd): “…… and these are the things I love!!! <3”

Cancer, either you have a bangin’ social media presence or you use your page as your personal diary post. If any sign is all about the exclamation points, it is you. The artsy, adventurous Cancer who is setting out in the world to conquer negativity through their overwhelming love? Promoting their passion? Or the Cancer who travels to new places probably because you have a bae of some shape or form there…. or because you serve others and/or have a cause to promote? What about that picture of you with an elephant in Africa when you went on your third mission trip? Now that is definitely something worth seeing. Stalkable profile rating equals a solid 8 to 9.

Or if you’re the more reserved Cancer, you probably have little care for your social media presence — as long as the people you love can keep up. Your page? Relationships. Parent bonding. A selfie with your new dog… or cat. Memes. Besties. Babies… your ex from 5 years ago that you’re not over but your current boo thang doesn’t have to know. Chances are, if you’re this Cancer, you have a problem of letting go… to include that picture from 2011 with the Delia’s pun T-shirt.

You probably look at your own social media page than other people do… you know, for old times sake.

Leo (July 23rd-August 22nd): “I’ve made my page to where you can openly stalk my crazy beautiful life….. all likes are welcome here.”

Remember how celebrities greeted us on MTV cribs? “Hi, I’m Leo, and welcome to my social media pad.” Social media isn’t your diary— it is your own reality TV for the world to see. Which is why your page is on public…. or on private but you probably accept almost anyone that requests anyways. When people see your profile, it definitely puts the “extra” in “extroverted”— usually in a good way. In other words, Leo, a good social media presence for you is when you be yourself— which really isn’t hard for you, at all.

People gravitate towards you and your page, and in turn, you find many admiring you. You post daily and understand social networking quite well. And yes, social media is probably a second career for you. You post for a number of reasons that many may not post for. When you do post, it’s something you know will get you the number of ‘likes’ and engagement it deserves. Even as a more reserved Leo, you may be all about motivational posts about faith, love, and passion. You may see countless pictures of a specific person, thing, or concept that you love since you are so passionate about what you do. It’s rare to see a Leo who doesn’t at least kind of enjoy social media– after all, you are the social butterfly of the zodiac!

Basically, you wear your heart on your sleeve… and social media profiles.

Virgo (August 23rd-September 22nd): “I spent way too much time debating whether or not I should post this.”

How many times did you change that filter, Virgo? How long did you spend on your caption? Your overthinking does you both justice and injustice with your social media presence. Since you are more prone to social anxiety, you think through what you post and how people will view you for it. On one hand, you may have a rather lively profile. When you’re in the right mindset to express your creativity and artsy side, your followers dig it. Your detailed nature allows you to make a good presence.

Most Virgos find social media as a tool to reveal more about them to people — as you can be reserved more often than not in everyday life. Either your earthly element brings out your weird side, or your overthinking limits you to simplicity. You try cooking up a witty caption but your overthinking spoils your creative juices so you just go with something straightforward… yet must have a minimum of two emojis. If your overthinking really catches your tongue, these juices can potentially projectile word vomit into the post box with everything you previously just contemplated. Then there’s Virgos who just, like, never post because they can no longer handle the torture of the unknown thought of their followers.

Either way, Virgo, just post what you want already. People like you… stop overthinking it!

Libra (September 23rd-October 22nd): “I literally get out of the house twice a week at max, so what you see is what you get.”

Libra, you are one who cares about image, but you’re also one who is too freakin’ lazy to really build a social media presence. You’re likely rejuvenating from the social exhaustion that stupid people gave you, and social media only enhances this…. at times. You either stay off for a few days and worry ’bout ya own self. You may be the Libra who wants to post something, but that would require you leaving your bed and taking off your t-shirt covered with Nutella tracings just to go initiate social interaction that you really could care less for.

Luckily for you, Libra, this doesn’t hurt your social media presence because you do have a night or two out of the week where you do want to be social or where you participate in something worth posting about. You are usually well-liked and physically put together when you do make your appearance — which is why you don’t have to try and impress. You just do. You like that balance of “I’m socially relevant” and “What you see is what you get because I ain’t got time for all that.”

Well, what we see — we likey, Libra.

Scorpio (October 23rd-November 21st): “My BAEs!!!”

BAE for Scorpio is more than lovers and friends, “before anyone else” also means your family, career, and other passions you dabble into. Your emotional energy is built mostly on love, and much like Cancer you really only post about things you love. Yes, it’s likely you’re a regular poster because you enjoy sharing the love you feel from the blessings in your life. The same two friends, your relationship, family, and the next advancements you’ve made in life — since we all know, and sometimes fear, the badassery of a Scorpio.

But for more reserved Scorpios, BAE also means these “before anyone else’s” come before your social media. You forget to post a lot, or you just don’t have time or energy to. Plus, your intuition ringing in you gives you an irritating and drained feeling because you can just sense how fake these people and their posts are. Gag. For some this means your social media is the BAE — you be feelin’ yourself, posting your fine selfies, and telling the world about what is on your heart for the day.

You basically hate to love yet love to hate social media.

Sagittarius (November 22nd-December 21st): “My page exudes adventure… and instability.”

Another flight, another sight — Sagittarius in a nutshell because your life is just entertaining and always on the move. That’s what life is about for you — except that you really aren’t that concerned with your social media. Actually, you get in these moods where you don’t mind your ego being fed with the pure enjoyment people get from your posts. That’s honestly what your social media is for you — living, breathing Canon-quality proof that your life is a joke. An enjoyable, lighthearted one at that. But it’s okay… that’s why people love you!

It gets better — you know those random relationships you jump into or places you move to because, well, you really don’t know? Please tell us how many times you’ve posted about them… all to decide that you’re ready to change your life again. If you’re a more reserved or developed Sag, then you just give up on posting much because you can barely keep up with yourself. The only thing that holds any stability or consistency is when you post family or sports pictures because hey, that’s the only thing that doesn’t change for you… usually.

… But it works for you, so do you.

Capricorn (December 22nd-January 19th): “Sorry… I promise I’m cooler in person.”

You’re an old soul, Capricorn. You don’t have any social media front whatsoever because you see it as unnecessary. Rather than a front, it’s more of the fact that you’re a lot cooler in person than your media entails. While your fellow earth signs like to make their profiles reveal more about themselves, you don’t. You know you can’t control what people think of you, but you sure can control your social media — which in the modern world is essentially the same thing.

But… this isn’t to say your presence sucks. As a matter of fact, your detailed and structured personality drives you to keep your profile neat and clean — just like your self-perfected life. You show the highlights, best pictures, achievements, and those who are close to you. You don’t care about what others think, and more often than not you could care less about the likes on your post. Which is why you usually get a decent or large amount — you don’t try hard and you don’t even care to.

Let’s just call your social media a “sneak peek” into your life.

Aquarius (January 20th-February 18th): “I have 99 problems… and social media ain’t one.”

How is your life holding up right now, Aquarius? How many problems and responsibilities have you been running from that has only hoarded more stress onto you? You, the water bearer, splashes your water on all other areas than your social media because let’s face it — you have 99 problems that your social media should not be involved in.

You’ll like people’s pictures (if you even do that) all day, yet you can’t allow anyone to know that, God forbid, your very convincing “I totally have it together” image is a cover-up for the slop show you like to call your life. You barely know what’s going on in front of you — let alone should people know more about you than you do. Rebellious Aquarius will not stand for this, so you just post a good picture with some artistic or decent quality highlighting some positive aspect of your life.

But little do they know, Aquarius…

Pisces (February 19th-March 20th): “Weirdness isn’t just my aesthetic; it is my soul.”

Oh, Pisces. Life is your beautifully messy canvas, and so is your social media profile. It’s rare to see those born under your sign not have at least some artistic element to their personality, whether or not you choose to show it. One thing about your sign is that you don’t prefer using words to send a message to your followers, you use pictures. On one hand, you likely post about those you love and the adventures that you hold with them. This side of you doesn’t try to be artsy necessarily, but it does reveal your weirdness that you are shameless about. Yes, it’s likely you have a good phone camera or a Canon because you appreciate quality. Meanwhile, a more reserved Pisces may resemble a Cancer with their profile.

On the other hand, it’s common to see your sign have an artsy profile… perhaps to the point where people have no clue what kind of presence you’re trying to promote. You’re the creative powerhouse of the zodiac, so you see beauty in the simple things that others overlook. Perhaps you post a selfie wrapped in your Eno… with the Perpetua Insta filter… captioning, “My soul is an unborn butterfly… a caterpillar longing to be set free in this basic world.” Or if you’re the Pisces who isn’t into selfies, you’ll just post objects you see as artistically valuable and slap a filter that is vintage… so fetch.
