Where You’ll Meet Your Next Casual Hookup, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Who says a meet-cute needs to lead to a long-term relationship? Whether you cross paths with a cutie at an open mic night or reach for the same Twilight bath bomb at the downtown Lush, when it comes to knowing where you’ll meet your next casual hookup, the options are truly endless. And if you’re looking for some extra celestial guidance in your search for your next hot and heavy hookup, following your zodiac sign can be super helpful.

From a karaoke dive bar to a dusty used book store, your next casual hookup may be out there, just waiting to be found. Of course, no matter your sign, the most important part of a hookup is discussing consent and boundaries before turning up the heat. Although a casual thing can be fun and flirty for all, making sure everyone is on the same page is always the first step to getting to it. There’s nothing cute about ghosting or miscommunication, no matter when you were born. But if you’re both clear about what you’re looking for, a casual hookup can be just what the love doctor ordered.

Here is where you’ll meet your next hookup, based on your zodiac sign.

Taurus (April 20–May 20): A Lush Store

Cancer (June 21–July 22): A Used Bookstore

Sentimental Cancer loves tradition and history. Intuitive and emotional, this crab isn’t often one for “casual hookups,” but will likely meet their next date at a used bookstore with lots of dust and a wise old man behind the counter.

Leo (July 23–Aug. 22): Doing Karaoke

Leo loves the limelight. Whether they’re doing a Spice Girls song with all of their friends or a Beyoncé solo performance, they’re likely to meet their next hookup at a karaoke bar, when all eyes are on them.

Virgo (Aug. 23–Sept. 22): The Grocery Store

Virgos like to make a list and check it twice. Analytical and structured, they’re likely to meet their next hookup in the organic aisle of the grocery store, looking for fair trade vanilla and not straying from their lists.

Libra (Sept. 23–Oct. 22): A Nightclub

Lively Libra likes to hit the town with their friends. Charismatic and social, they’re likely to meet their next hookup dancing at their favorite club or waiting in line to get into the newest hot spot.

Scorpio (Oct. 23–Nov. 21): An Indie Movie House

Artsy Scorpio is intense. Poetic and sensual, they’re likely to meet their next hookup at the indie movie house they went to alone in the middle of the day (where they go to really sit with their thoughts).

Sagittarius (Nov. 22–Dec. 21): Literally Anywhere

When you look up “casual hookup” in the dictionary, you probably see Sagittarius. A free spirit and adventurous soul, this archer likes to go wherever the wind blows and loves to meet new cuties along the way. They’re likely to meet their next hookup literally wherever they go.

Capricorn (Dec. 22–Jan.19): On Tinder

Ambitious Capricorn doesn’t like to waste time. This earth sign is likely to meet their next hookup on Tinder, as they’re editing their resume and looking over their five-year plan.

Aquarius (Jan. 20–Feb. 18): Waiting For Your Uber

Quirky Aquarius dances to the beat of their own drum. One to talk to strangers and find themselves in new neighborhoods, they’re likely to meet their next hookup while waiting for their Uber home from somewhere they wandered to.

Pisces (Feb. 19–March 20): An Art Show

Dreamy Pisces is creative and imaginative. Drawn to art and cultural events, they’ll likely meet their next hookup at an art show or opening for an edgy new sculptor or avant-garde digital filmmaker-turned-oil-painter.

Whether you cross eyes at the supermarket or bump into each other at a bar, Your next casual hookup could be right around the corner.

All About Leo: The Good, the Bad, and the Glamorous

They’re famous for being famous.

You already know: Every sign of the zodiac has personality qualities and archetypal traits associated with it. Let’s get into some vibes we often associate with Leo—the good, the bad, and the glamorous—shall we?

(Pause for a quick disclaimer: Before reading on, please remember the first astrological commandment, *thou shalt not astroprofile*, and know that literally any sign can have any personality quality. These are simply the ones most commonly associated with our Leo friends—those born July 22 to August 22. Also, the ways these qualities get expressed vary from person to person. I’m a Leo, so I know.)


As the Sun-ruled lion of the zodiac, Leo is the ruler of the jungle…and the office. Think about the Sun’s position in the sky—all the planets revolve around it as they receive its light. So it tracks that Leos are famous for…well, being famous. Wherever they are, they *shine*. And when you’re on their team at the office, it can feel like the light of the Sun is right on you when they offer attention. Your Leo coworker is fiercely loyal, always has your back, and is a pro at spotting natural talent—they’re a leader through and through. People naturally look to Leo for direction, energy, and warmth. The dark side of all this sunny generosity? Leo casts a big shadow and sometimes has to be reminded to move over so that others can have their turn in the spotlight.


Your Leo lover is 🔥🔥🔥. They’re a fixed fire sign, so we’re talking about a slow and steady fire that just keeps going (unlike fellow fire sign Aries, who is more in danger of burning out). For a Leo, romance, passion, and love (Leo rules the heart, BTW) are nonnegotiable. Like the Sun that rules them, Leo is endlessly generous with their love and attention—and expects the same in return. The lion’s kingdom is filled with reverence and adoration. The danger of dating a Leo? They can be easily disappointed when their partners don’t live up to their expectations.


When a Leo steps into the room, heads turn. Leos are known for their loyalty to those they care about, and your Leo friend will fiercely protect you and your whole crew. At its best, friendship with a Leo can feel like you’re seated on a throne too. Whether at a large group hangout, an intimate dinner party, or a one-on-one coffee date, Leo brings the party. The beauty of a Leo friendship is that you’ll always feel important. Leos love to point out how famous, talented, brilliant, and beautiful their friends are. They’ll compliment you on your successes and support you through your failures. The dark side of a Leo friendship usually has something to do with their notorious stubbornness—it’s Leo’s way or the highway.


Party hard, work hard, play hard, rest hard—Leo famously requires loads of energy. Checking in on a Leo at home can mean getting a glimpse into their need to recharge and relax in luxury. Leo, like the lion, generally does well living in groups as opposed to solo. If they’re not living with their partner, they’ll probably have a slew of roommates. In either situation, their pure Leo energy means they’ll typically take the role of house leader, with everyone in the pack syncing up to the king of the jungle. Even the shyest Leos have a hint of royal energy, and you’ll find bright gold, purple, and red in their decor as they waltz around in an Instagram-ready bathrobe.

How Each Zodiac Sign Sabotages Their Chances Of Finding Love, According To Astrology

Love like you’ve never been hurt.

Love can really feel like a losing game. There’s no way to truly predict the outcome of a relationship. It’s not even uncommon for people in relationships to be unaware of what they want or think they want, only to realize they don’t actually want it at all.

Let’s say you end up getting the guy and the relationship you want. That doesn’t always mean it’s going to last. There could be a lot of unforeseen obstacles that result in a breakup. Past heartbreak, lack of trust, cheating, and red flags — all can lead to breakups.

We can’t always prevent breakups, but we can always learn from them. Unfortunately, each zodiac sign in astrology can sabotage their chances of finding lasting love.

Rather than asking yourself, “Will I ever find love?” don’t look at your past breakups as failures. Instead, look at them as experiences that are bringing you one step closer to learning what you want and deserve in a relationship.

Breakups make us aware of how we can become better partners in our next relationship. When we are aware of the characteristics we have that sabotage our love lives, we can start to improve upon them. Awareness is the key to having a better love life.

When you’re aware of your faults, don’t beat yourself up. Everyone makes stupid decisions when they’re blinded by love, so work towards not allowing your past mistakes to occur in your future partnerships.

If you’ve ever wondered if your zodiac sign plays a factor at the end of your relationship, it’s important to look at zodiac compatibility. Astrological compatibility is a good indicator of the likelihood your relationship will succeed.

ARIES (March 21 – April 19)

Aries want what they want — and they want it now. Compromise and patience are not their strong suits. In a relationship, these two factors are vital to its longevity. A relationship works around the needs and wants of two people, not just Aries. This “me first” mentality sabotages the whole relationship.

Aries needs to learn how to manage their anger. They cannot get upset with their partners over the smallest things. Erratic spells of anger can make the other partner feel unsafe because they are never certain how far Aries’ anger could escalate. This creates an unsafe environment.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)

Taurus can be very possessive in a relationship. They need to understand that they don’t own their partners. Their partner is a person, not an object. Both partners are individuals, even if they are in a committed relationship. Taurus’ possessive nature makes their partner feel trapped.

The jealousy that comes with the objectification of a partner never ends well. Too much jealousy is not a good thing in a relationship. Taurus’ partner will feel as though their partner doesn’t trust them.

GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)

Geminis can be really co-dependent. These social beautifies love to be in the company of others and enjoy being the center of attention. It’s great to spend quality time with your significant other, but you both should have your own lives. Gemini’s partner might feel smothered if they constantly want to hang out.

Geminis are extremely loyal, so if their partner isn’t the same, this will definitely cause a problem. They want to belive their partner is just as loyal as them. Any instances of disloyalty will cause Gemini to question their partner and the relationship, and they won’t be able to trust their partner after.

CANCER (June 21 – July 22)

Cancer’s manipulative characteristics ruin relationships for them. No one wants to feel as though their partner is pulling wool over their eyes. This will cause Cancer’s partner to question everything they say. The lack of trust that results from Cancer’s manipulation is the reason for the end of a relationship.

People want to feel that their partner has their best interest at heart. Cancer tends to have their own best interest at heart and often takes on the victim role. They don’t take responsibility for their wrongdoings.

LEO (July 23 – August 22)

Leos have very strong personalities. Their assertiveness can really be a turn-off because they don’t want to compromise. Leo’s confidence can turn into cockiness very fast, where they aren’t willing to hear their partner out or consider their opinions.

Leos like things to go their way. When they don’t, it doesn’t go well with them. They are stubborn people who don’t want to change their minds. Trying to get a Leo to try something that makes them uncomfortable is almost impossible.

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)

Virgos are complete perfectionists. They want everything to go as planned. When it comes to relationships, things are hardly ever perfect. People make mistakes, so Virgo’s need for perfection can cause unnecessary conflicts. If they want their relationship to last they have to stop being so analytical.

Since Virgo is a perfectionist, they can be very critical of their partner. Being overly critical makes their partner feel self-conscious and not good enough. Virgo’s judgment is what makes it hard for them to have successful relationships.

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)

Libra’s indecision can ruin relationships because they might not be sure how serious or chill they want the relationship to be. Mixed signals can be cute for a little bit, but they don’t sustain long-term relationships. Knowing where you stand defines the relationship’s tone, and Libra’s inability to make a choice can potentially cause them to lose great partners.

Libra’s struggle to open up also makes their partner feel distant. They never want to express their true emotions to maintain the harmony of the environment. Their obsessive need for balance can be the very cause of the demise of their relationship.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)

Scorpios are very independent. They want to solve everything on their own. This can make their partner feel as if they don’t want them to truly be part of their lives. Scorpios struggle with making their partners feel unneeded. No one wants to be in a relationship with someone who doesn’t make them feel wanted.

Since Scorpio is also secretive, they don’t want to share their business or be vulnerable. Part of being in a relationship is being able to share your life with someone, and this zodiac sign struggles with making room for their partner.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)

Sagittarius overthink way too much, and overthinking kills relationships. Overthinking makes you come up with problems that don’t even exist or causes you to think the smallest problems are unsolvable. Sagittarius tend to stress themselves out over non-existent problems, which creates problems with their partner.

Sagittarius’ need to know everything doesn’t help a relationship either. People don’t want to feel forced into opening up, so Sagittarius has to learn how to allow people to open up on their own terms.

CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)

An important aspect of a relationship is forgiveness. You have to be willing to “forgive and forget” the wrongdoings of your partner. Unfortunately, Capricorns are not even close to being the most forgiving zodiac sign. When they get hurt by their partner, they don’t speak up to solve the problem. Instead, Capricorn acts as if nothing is wrong and continue to harbor resentment towards their partner.

When Capricorn bottles up all their emotions, this results in them not being able to be vulnerable with their partner, which makes them come off as distant. Emotional distance in a relationship is seldom good because your partner should be the first person you call when you’re at your highest and lowest moments. Capricorn’s partner will feel this emotional rift and start to feel inadequate.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)

Aquarius are not ones to express their feelings. They would much rather look at things from a logical perspective. Having a partner who can see things for what they truly are is great, but if they’re always thinking with their heads, they won’t be as sympathetic.

It’s hard for an Aquarius partner to relate to the emotional hardships their partner is dealing with because they’ll approach everything with logic. Sometimes when your partner tells you something, they just want to know that you hear and understand them. A solution isn’t always needed.

Aquarians aren’t much of commitment people either. They would much rather enjoy the freedom that comes from their independence, than feel trapped in a relationship. Aquarius can be perceived as detached in romantic relationships because they put their needs first.

PISCES (February 19 – March 20)

Pieces tend to come off as overly emotional. As you can imagine, that’s a turn-off for a lot of people. No one wants a significant other who cries because their ice cream cone fell or who can’t take constructive criticism.

In a relationship, it’s inevitable that your partner will do stuff that upsets you, and the only way to fix that is to say something about it. But when you’re dating a Pisces, it’s so much more difficult to be transparent about your dislikes because you’re worried about your feelings.

Pisces being overly sensitive makes their partner feel as though they have to walk around on eggshells. No one wants to have to tip-toe around tough topics with their significant other out of fear of them overreacting. This will definitely cause an emotional rift in the relationship if not resolved.

4 Zodiac Signs Most Likely To Defend Their Relationship

Imagine posting a sweet birthday tribute to the love of your life on Instagram and getting hate in the comments. Well, the four zodiac signs most likely to defend their relationship would never let that slide. Just like actor Florence Pugh, who posted a video on Instagram defending her relationship with Zach Braff after receiving disrespectful comments criticizing their 21-year age gap. While Pugh handled the situation with calm, cool, and collected head, these four signs would have had no problem expressing how they really feel about you and your opinions.

Whether you’re a global celebrity or just a regular joe, it’s not uncommon to get upset when someone speaks badly about your partner, and every zodiac sign reacts in their own way. For example, a level-headed and practical sign, like Capricorn, probably wouldn’t feel the need to say anything, unless they absolutely were inclined to, while a non-confrontational sign like Pisces wouldn’t say anything out loud, but would definitely take a lot of the comments to heart.

And then there are signs which, like Pugh, won’t tolerate any sort of judgmental comments made about their relationship choices, and will always speak up for what’s right. Even if you mean well, these four ride-or-die zodiac signs are most likely to defend their relationships — so don’t even try them.

Taurus (April 20 — May 20)

It takes a lot to make a Taurus mad, but criticizing their relationship is one surefire way to bring the bull out. Taurus is very patient and will only give their heart to someone who is worthy of their time and energy. So, if you were to say their partner was a bad choice, they would take that comment as a personal attack. They would feel pretty insulted that you don’t think they can make the right decisions for themselves.

Cancer (June 21 — July 22)

This sign typically looks for partners who can make them feel like they’re at home, so their partner quickly becomes like family to them. Since Cancer values family above everything else, they will defend them at all costs. Even though water signs are very sensitive, Cancers don’t typically like sharing their feelings and would rather hide in their shells. But in the case of someone disrespecting their partner, they will definitely snap.

Leo (July 23 — August 22)

Leos are loyal to their core and will fiercely defend their relationship from anyone and everyone. Similar to Taurus, Leos carefully choose the company they keep. They like to think that their partner and their friends are an extension of themselves. So, if you’re critical of their partner, they’ll take that to mean you’re critical of them. Leos are ruled by the Sun, which is all about ego. They won’t let you get away with making them feel bad about themselves.

Scorpio (October 23 — November 21)

Scorpio is very loyal and protective over what’s theirs. They’re not very open with what they’re thinking and how they’re feeling. So, if you have something to say about their relationship, they’ll listen without responding to anything back. But provoke a scorpion enough, and you will get the stinger. Out of all these four signs, this is one that can get a little mean if you say something they don’t like. It’s best to keep any unnecessary opinions to yourself.

Your Biggest Turn-Ons and Turn-Offs, Based on Your Sign

Astrology helps you deepen your intuitive understanding of yourself and others—fueling empathy, compassion, kindness, and chemistry in all of your relationships. But it can also be a ~major~ help in the bedroom. Knowing your boo’s sign can help you know how to really rev their engine, and, alternatively, what causes them to come to a screeching halt. Every sign has a unique sexual identity, and it’s important to know who needs what. Because while the down and dirty might work for a Sag, it’ll def turn away a Taurus.

The more you know about your sign’s sexual identity, the hotter your sex will be. (And if you’re wondering what your sexual superpower is based on your sign, we’ve gotchu). In the meantime, here’s a definitive guide to each sign’s turn-ons (and -offs!) Take notes, it’s about to get cosmically steamy.


Aries are notorious for their impulsive, fast-paced approach to life. They’re fueled by passion, so they’re extremely turned on by sudden bursts of desire. A sext in the middle of the day? A whisper in their ear at a party? They’re here for it.

Though it may sound crude, nothing fans their flames quite like an unexpected hookup in a bathroom stall or backseat of a car. So if you’re thinking of something slow and comfy, you may want to look elsewhere. And given their fiery nature, never hesitate to throw in some toys of the rougher variety—might we suggest handcuffs or a riding crop? Also, Aries have short attention spans, so they’re not into excessive foreplay. Action and taking initiative is key.


Governed by Venus (the planet of love and beauty), Taurus is one of the most romantic signs of the zodiac. They love exploring their senses, so their sexual appetite is closely connected to sound, sight, taste, smell, and touch.

Turn on your Taurus lover with a fully immersive experience, complete with chocolate, wine, candles, and oils. Taurus wants to be totally transported, so you might even want to experiment with sex in the great outdoors. (And FYI, Tauruses are obsessed with desserts, so don’t be afraid to bust out the whipped cream when the time is right.) Also, remember that Taurus is turned off by sloppiness, so bringing them to a tidy bedroom will keep them happy.


Everything in Gemini’s life is about duality. While some Gemini may embrace this quality quite literally (*ahem*, threesomes), these air signs have more than enough charisma to make a monogamous romp feel like an orgy. In short: Nothing turns on Gemini more than lots of sexual experimentation. Seriously, they’re down to try pretty much anything! The only thing Geminis are turned off by is monotony, so don’t be afraid to get freaky (with their consent, obviously). They’re also governed by Mercury, the planet of communication, so sexting and dirty talk is definitely in their wheelhouse.

Gemini’s love to be listened to, so try running your hand over theirs while they’re talking and make eye contact. Engage them in their fantasies, it’ll go a long way.


Intimacy is a big deal for these sweet, sensitive water signs. Symbolized by the crab, Cancers need to feel safe before emerging from their shells, and the fastest way to foster loyalty is through physical closeness. Cancers are ruled by the Moon, the planet of emotions—don’t be afraid to pull out all the romantic gestures in your arsenal. This sign is all about cuddling, spooning, and sensual caresses. Don’t be shy about cozying up with your Cancer lover.

Intimacy matters for Cancer. So take your time, slow it down. Lay down and gaze into each other’s eyes. But when you’re turning up the heat, remember that everything needs to be reciprocal. Be sure to allocate plenty of time for mutual satisfaction. Cancers may guard their sensitivities with tough armor, but they’re not afraid to use their claws when they need to.


Leos are all about drama, so when it comes to sex, the bedroom can quickly transform into a stage. Performative and bombastic, the biggest turn-on for these lions is to feel desired. They thrill at the thought of being wanted, especially when the passion leads to cinematic lovemaking.

Leos love to be wined and dined through luxurious dates, tabloid-worthy expressions of adoration (think John Cusack in Say Anything), and grandiose displays of affection. So whip out the massage oil, candles, slinky lingerie, and make your lion purrrr. But make them feel even the least bit snubbed, and you can expect some angry roars from them.


Traditionally, the sign of Virgo is symbolized by the virgin archetype—an outdated association that sometimes leads to the false assumption that Virgos are prudish. The truth is the contrary. Like a horny teenager, Virgos are absolutely obsessed with sex, and really savor every moment of it. Governed by Mercury (the planet of communication) Virgos also love to talk about getting downso a fully scripted round of role play should def be on the menu. What’s more, Virgos tend to skew flustered and detail-oriented, so slow it down and put the focus on them with plenty of foreplay.

And when it’s time to do the deed, make sure you’re approaching everything… hygienically. Virgos are instantly grossed out by anything that they deem unsanitary. So, if you’re planning on some kinky kitchen-counter play, let your Virgo lover know you’ve already stocked up on antibacterial wipes—I mean, what could be sexier than that?


Libra is ruled by Venus, the planet of love and beauty. Accordingly, Libras tend to treat their lovers like precious works of art. With such a refined palate, it’s no surprise that Libras are turned on by elegance and sophistication. Taking the time to make your Libra a cocktail and put on some great music goes a long way.

But don’t let all that flair fool you—Libras are known for their adventurousness in the bedroom, too. A little bit of role reversal and tons of foreplay like spanking, fingering and butt-plugging is definitely not out of the question. But ultimately, the fastest way to a Libra’s heart is always through the mind. AKA, even if someone is ~perfect~ in bed, a Libra will be instantly turned off if the post-coital convo is boring (or non-existent).


In medical astrology, Scorpios rule the sex organs, so it’s no surprise that they’re considered one of the most erotic signs of the zodiac. A Scorpio’s energy combines steamy passion with soulful emotional intimacy, making them magnetic AF.

Governed by Pluto, the planet of the underworld, Scorpios love to dive into power play, and are extremely turned on by explorations of dominance and submission. They aren’t afraid to explore taboos, so try getting extra kinky with your Scorpio with their consent. Go for long and steamy oral sessions, take it outside, or add a sex toy or three. But whatever you do, make sure you act with feeling. Increase the connection with intense eye contact and a firm grip. Scorpio is all about chemistry, and the sexual tension needs to be palpable.


Sagittarius are explorers, so their biggest turn-on will always be adventure. Sagittarius views physical intimacy as an opportunity for emotional discovery and intellectual expansion. This fire sign is extremely aroused by anything that has a hint of danger, so don’t be surprised if your Sagittarius lover is into public sex—and group sex can be a major turn-on too.

On the flip side, Sagittarius are totally turned off by sex that feels overly sentimental. Sagittarius are masters of seduction and are great at making love, but they prefer to focus on the more playful aspects of getting down. So next time you’re sitting down for dinner, be bold and go for that sneaky under-the-table-thigh-stroke—it’ll drive your Sag wild.


Capricorns are the most ambitious sign of the zodiac, and their sex drive is no exception. These enterprising earth signs take getting down seriously and expect their partners will, too. They want to have a rich private life filled with lots of kinky adventures, so don’t be afraid to turn up the heat with these naughty sea-goats.

Plus, these dynamos like to take charge, so let them take the reigns and lean into the power play. But nothing turns them off more than someone who’s all talk, especially if they don’t actually deliver in bed. Sexting is nice, but Capricorn lovers need to physically get down and dirty.


Aquarians are the aliens of the zodiac–these eccentric nonconformists always have their head high in the clouds. But when it comes to sex, this rebellious air sign isn’t afraid to get down. Aquarians are turned on by anything that goes against societal conventions.

And they love mystery, so adding in a mask or a blindfold is sure to turn up the heat. If anything, your Aquarius lover may be turned off by more traditional approaches to sex—they’re simply not bizarre enough for this free-thinking air sign. Hot tip: Aquarians love sci-fi, so try incorporating a piece of technology (like a vibrator) into your play.


Pisces are highly spiritual and empathic, so it’s no surprise that they’re extremely turned on by deeply spiritual connections. They’re aroused by out-of-this-word explorations, so be sure to explore the nooks and crannies of your psychic world with this water sign—maybe add in a tarot reading or a joined meditation to really elevate that intuitive connection. Plus, these fish like to go with the flow, so shower and hot tub sex are definite musts.

Ultimately, Pisces are curious souls, so really the only thing that turns them off is rigidity. As long as you’re flexible and open-minded, Pisces will be delighted to swim in your direction.

3 Non-Committal Zodiac Signs That Don’t Like To Label Their Relationships

There’s nothing quite like the frustration of falling for someone who seems to be dodging every opportunity to take your relationship to the next level. Whether you’ve been dating for a few months, or are approaching the one year mark, trying to build a relationship with non-committal zodiac signs can quickly start to feel like an uphill battle. The good news is that all hope is not lost. If you’re willing to be patient, these zodiac signs can make great partners, but it my take them a while to untangle their true feelings.


Known for their paradoxical nature, Gemini is a sign that often experiences an excess of inner conflict that can make them difficult to pin down. It’s not uncommon for the unruly twins to crave the freedom of singledom, while also yearning for the comfort and convenience of a committed relationship. For this reason, Geminis can be hesitant to label a relationship. And in some cases, this apprehension can last after passing relationship-y milestones like meeting their family, or regularly socializing with their friends.


As natural conflict avoiders, Libras aren’t always forthcoming with how they feel. But when they do fall for someone, they tend to fall extremely hard. That’s why, maintaining an identity independent from their love interest can feel like an impossible feat for them. However, it’s not long before the observant Libra becomes aware of their propensity to get swept up in relationships — And since they’ve likely been burned in the past by committing too soon, more experienced Libras may feel the need to overcorrect this habit by constantly pumping the breaks, even when they’re genuinely into someone.

Aquarians have so many wonderful qualities, but opening up about their emotions is not one of them. Being vulnerable is something that many Aquarians actively avoid. This is a sign that may also have unrealistically high standards for their relationships, which can make it hard for them to fully commit to a great partner who may not match up with the idealized image in their head. Your best bet when dealing with an Aquarius who’s being dodgy about labeling your relationship is to make your feelings known, then give them space to process. If they’re still being flighty, then it might be time to cut the cord.

When it comes to dealing with a partner who is apprehensive about putting a label on your relationship, it’s important to strike a healthy balance between pursuing your needs and respecting the fact that they may be processing their feelings a lot slower than you are. That said, as in every relationship, having an honest conversation about the future is the best way to assess whether you’re dating a compatible match.

Be Careful Who You Trust—These 4 Zodiac Signs Are The Best Liars

Be honest—when was the last time you told a lie? Bet I can guess based on your sign! I took a look at which zodiac signs are the best liars, and if you think you can predict the lineup, you just might be shocked. The thing about telling lies is this: If you’re going to do it, you better be good at it. There’s no use in lying if you’re just going to get caught!

Like most other personality traits, your ability to fib is dependent on the stars—and some of us (like myself, a Cancer prone to laughing mid-lie) are bad at faking it. Look to planets like Mars and Mercury in your natal chart for insights on defensive nature and communication skills—these placements are crucial in predicting who can get away with what. Are you truthful like a Virgo, gentle and honest like a Pisces? Perhaps you’re a little more…mischievous, in which case you might be one of the best liars in the game.

If you consider yourself someone who ~hardly ever lies~, take a peek at your social media profiles and re-evaluate that claim. In showing only a highlight reel, aren’t you technically lying every now and again? Were you really happy to be staying in and eating dinner for one last weekend, or is that a faux smile underneath those filters? I’m just saying! Most of us tell more lies than we realize, and social media doesn’t help. That said, while we’ve all fibbed before, some of us are even more devious liars, cunning enough to spin whole webs of lies and make a clean getaway before ever being found out.

Don’t say I didn’t warn you! With that, here are the four astrological signs that are the best liars.

Cierra Miller


Keep an eye out for their poison tails: Scorpios are such good liars because they have an innate connection to the dark side (Read: the spooky and the occult). The sign of Scorpio is ruled by the planet Pluto, named after the Roman equivalent to Hades, the god of the underworld. It’s likely that at least one of your closest Scorpio friends is secretly a witch (if she’s not already out of the “broom closet,” so to speak). A stinging scorpion is just as emotional as a Cancer or Pisces, but because they’re the fixed sign of the water element (versus mutable and cardinal signs), they’re as stubborn as oxen, and know how to channel their emotions into real change. When people need someone to keep a secret or tell a lie, a scorpio is a smart go-to, as they have a known reputation for getting things done and keeping it on the DL.


Cierra Miller


The peacekeeper knows just what to say: Libras are good liars because they like mediating conflicts. Being the cardinal air sign (meaning they’re the leaders and initiators of that element), Libras know how to keep friendships and conversations light, and aren’t prone towards skulking and moping. As the sign of the scales, Libras want to keep everyone chill and level, even at the cost of their own sanity. Though peacemaking is admirable, this desire to please can often lead Libras to lie in attempts at making sure everyone else stays happy. Libras are the type to claim they don’t care where you go when making dinner plans, when in reality they’re totally craving Indian food. They know a little white lie helps them lock in plans faster, and they just want to make sure everyone else is happy! Libra squad: Tell the truth and be bold about it. Get those samosas!

Cierra Miller


Don’t be (too) afraid of their alien nature: Aquarians are good liars because they’re tough nuts to crack. If you’ve ever been at a bar or a party and made eye contact with someone whose energy you just couldn’t read, they were probably an Aquarius. They’re the mystics and the weirdos of the zodiac, and probably aren’t from this galaxy—never get an Aquarian started on conspiracy theories. Just trust me on this one. Aquarians are good at putting up a front, and they have the best poker faces of all the signs in the zodiac. Because Aquarius is the fixed air sign, Aquarians are just as stubborn as Scorpios. Between this and their often-icy-cold exterior, they’re good at keeping secrets from people. Aquarius, you’ll always be able to get away with lying to get what you want. Just don’t get on another Aquarian’s bad side, okay?

Cierra Miller


They keep matters strictly business (while hiding their true feelings): Caps are good liars because they are all about getting shit done. Capricorns will do whatever they have to do to make sure that work gets completed in a timely and efficient manner, even if it means glossing over the truth. Much like Libras, they’re a cardinal sign, and they’re also an earth sign. Capricorns are the ones who keep their cool in tough situations; because they’re leaders, they can keep both feet on the ground when others might float off into space (like our extraterrestrial Aquarians). This grounded nature gives people the impression of trustworthiness, even though a classic Capricorn might be totally swindling them. Lying comes so naturally to Caps that it sometimes doesn’t even feel wrong, and they don’t even realize they’re doing it. If you’re a Capricorn, take some time to work on mindfulness of speech—see how committing to total honesty for a week or two makes you feel.

Let’s Get Real: These Are the Best (and, Um, Worst) Parts of Dating Each Zodiac Sign

You gotta take the good with the bad, right?! So while each of the 12 signs of the zodiac has sweet, cute, totally lovable qualities that turn us into human heart-eyes emoji…each Sun sign also, um, has the opposite. Let’s face it: We all have a side that most people can’t stand (yes, even you, Leo), but it’s fine.

Our posi traits are too good to give up! But it’s best to keep things 100, no? Right. That way, we can, you know, work on ourselves in our relationships. So keep reading for the thing your right swipes, your S.O., your ex, that cutie at the bar, etc., etc. loves (and hates) most about dating your Sun sign. It’s called growth.


Your impulsive nature makes you super fun to hang out with—we never know what adventure you’ll take us on next. However, your fiery combustible temper has a dark side that can lead to hot-headedness and super-confrontational arguments that start and end within minutes of each other. Not so fun!


All your fixed energy can make you a bit inflexible. Your stubbornness and unwillingness to change is, like, a thing. But we let it slide because you’re the ultimate ride-or-die bestie, as you are a genuine and devoted friend—and an amazing partner to your boo too!


No other sign is as fun as you, Gemmy! This is because you’re always down to party and go on any adventure. While we adore your social skills and openness to life, you do have a tendency to be gossipy and the source of most rumors—just sayin’.


You wear your heart on your sleeve, which makes you the sweetest lil crabbie in the ocean. You always want to work out problems—but only on your terms. You can be a little too controlling for your own good, which can create tensions with those you love and care about.


Let’s start with the positives, before you scratch anyone, kitty cat. You’re beyond generous and extremely loyal (see, positive!), which serves as your boo’s fair (even earned) payment for participating and indulging in your theatrics, temper tantrums, and dramatic meltdowns (LOL, snuck that in there, didn’t I?) when you don’t get your way.


We love you, Virgo, but you can be a bit…nitpicky. You’re too particular at times. This can create stress for you and those around you. But before you start to obsessively dissect this astrological drag, you really need to know what others value in you and that’s your patience, virtue, and kindness. Aww!


Libra, you are a lover of love, which serves your romantic heart well because you like to live in a fairy tale. The only issue people have with you is that you are a flirt. And to be real, you set up the next relationship before the one you’re in actually comes to an end.


You are gifted with amazing psychic abilities, which makes you an awesome mind reader. You use that info to your advantage and manipulate situations and people—which can create low-key drama. Instead of using people’s feelings to your advantage, pay it forward by helping them understand their motives.


TBH, Sag, your good and bad qualities are the same. You tend to be a know-it-all, which is great for fact finding (basically, you’re a human Google). But you also can be a know-it-all who doesn’t really know it all, especially in regard to emotions.


You already know: Your hardworking efforts and determination can lead to innovation and successes! You are a legit mover and shaker. The only thing that can be a drag is that you can get a little competitive with those who surpass you or are a threat to your position as CEO. Maybe skip bowling, mini golf, ice skating, literally any sport on a first date.


You give your all to humanitarian projects and ideally would like the world to sing in perfect harmony, which is a great attribute. However, you can get a little too fanatical in your beliefs and sound too preachy at times instead of just stating facts. Stop Aquarian-splaining!


Your imagination is the most beautiful thing about you. You have the ability to transcend any basic creative endeavor and make a monumental vision. The caveat to such a fluid mind is that you are often lost in your own world and unable to keep up with important mundane tasks. You just keep—wait for it—swimming!

How To Stay Connected While Social Distancing, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

The unprecedented coronavirus pandemic has changed daily life for almost all of us, and it hasn’t been easy. What has made me feel better over the past couple weeks of practicing social distancing is eating copious amounts of chocolate, making gratitude lists to remind myself of how blessed I am, and analyzing the astrology charts of all my ex-boyfriends, which I highly recommend doing because… why not? And of course, perhaps most importantly, leaning on the support of my friends and social network has been huge.

Because although most of us are unable to see many of our friends or family members in person right now, maintaining that connection is even more important. In fact, the World Health Organization prefers to use the term “physical distancing” instead of “social distancing,” to emphasize the fact that socially, we’re still in this together — and there are many options to help us stay socially connected despite the current circumstances.

But admittedly, staying social while social distancing takes some added effort and creativity — it’s not as easy as simply swinging by your friend’s place for dinner or hitting happy hour after work anymore. We now have to think about interesting ways to connect virtuallyAnd if you’re looking for a little inspiration on ways to stay connected, it can be helpful to look to astrology.

Aries: Quarantine Challenges

Tina Gong/Bustle

Your Instagram feed and story cycle are likely full of people embarking on various viral “quarantine challenges” — whether it’s dance challenges or push-up challenges. As a competitive Aries, you’re sure to have some fun by getting in on the action. Participate in as many as you can handle — and tag your friends with some encouraging asks to do the same.

Taurus: Virtual Book Clubs

Tina Gong/Bustle

Curling up in bed with snacks, cozy blankets, and a Netflix queue is totally fine by you, Taurus — by why not switch things up by burning through a few good books and connecting with friends? There are lots of virtual book clubs you can join right now. Or if you’re feeling inspired, put your good taste to good use and start your own book club.

Gemini: Memes

Tina Gong/Bustle

Memes seem to bring people together in times of hardships. And you’re likely a master of them, Gemini. Your quick wit and sharp sense of humor makes you the perfect conduit for memes that will bring a smile to your friends’ faces. So put your meme collection to good use and start sending them out as text conversation starters.

Cancer: Snail Mail

Tina Gong/Bustle

You love to keep things old school, Cancer, so go fully classic and send your friends some love via good old-fashioned snail mail. Whip out your cutest stationary and your middle school sticker collection and get creative by writing some sweet, personalized notes to all your friends.

Leo: Lip Sync Battles & Karaoke Parties

Tina Gong/Bustle

If Broadway stars can make lip sync videos from their quarantine quarters, well then, surely a Leo can! You can’t keep all that talent and sparkle bottled up inside without a little release, so host a virtual karaoke party or lip sync battle and let the good times (and the Mariah Carey solos) roll.

Virgo: Virtual Group Exercise Classes

Tina Gong/Bustle

Maintaining a healthy routine is important to you, Virgo, so get in your daily dose of fitness by participating in virtual group exercise classes. Many fitness instructors and gyms have moved their sessions to an online format for a lower cost (or sometimes even for free). You can even join the fun via Instagram live sessions or on other platforms for a greater sense of community.

Libra: Throw A Zoom Happy Hour

Tina Gong/Bustle

You’re a social butterfly, Libra, so keeping distance in your social life is probably a foreign concept to you. But you’re bound to find a way to bring some highly-curated social time back into your friends’ lives. The perfect way to do that? Host a Zoom happy hour. Pick a date and time,and have a great time sipping a beverage of choice with pals via the interwebs.

Scorpio: Classic FaceTime or Skype Calls

Tina Gong/Bustle

Maintaining intimate relationships with the people closest to you is important, Scorpio, so give yourself some face-to-face and heart-to-heart time with your best pals. No need for anything fancy — simply using FaceTime or Skype on your phone or laptop can allow you much-needed bonding time with your inner circle.

Sagittarius: Hit Instagram Live

Tina Gong/Bustle

You’ve got a big personality, Sag, so don’t hide it from the world just because you’re stuck indoors. It seems like everyone’s going live on Instagram out of sheer boredom and a craving for connection — but you always have something interesting to say. So say it! Whether it’s showing off your dance moves or cooking a meal live, you’re sure to foster connection and let everyone in on your happy-go-lucky energy.

Capricorn: Throw A Zoom Game Night

Tina Gong/Bustle

Cap, you need to take your mind off the stresses of our current situation and have a good old-fashioned bonding night with your friends. Keep things a little lighter by hosting a virtual game night. Whether it’s a game that everyone owns (Apples to Apples, anyone?) or choose one that doesn’t require any materials (Truth or Dare, if I may), you and your friends can have a great time and you can take your mind off things.

Aquarius: Keep Up On Reddit

Tina Gong/Bustle

You tend to be a loner, Aquarius, so you may find yourself more able to adapt to the current changes. That said, your inquiring mind always wants to know more, so keep yourself entertained and social by connecting with people on Reddit or another online forum that reflects your interests. Sparking up interesting conversations with people who are passionate about the same things you are can boost your spirits.

Pisces: Get Creative

Tina Gong/Bustle

Expressing yourself through art has always been therapeutic, Pisces, so connecting with friends via art is a great way to stay social while also soothing your worries. There are lots of quarantine art challenges that you and your friends can join (or that you can join solo!). Hashtags like #QuarantineArtClub are a great place to get started.

Phicklephilly Weekly Horoscope: Sunday, April 19, 2020

All Signs

An astrology chart looks like a pizza cut into 12 slices. The planets “fall” into different slices (according to when you are born), and this describes who you are. Some people like to stay at home. Some sleep at home, but mostly they pop in and out to get things or change clothes. Some identify with their job and get their sense of self-worth from their work. Some are active with friends and enjoy involvement with organizations. Some love to entertain at home. Some want to travel; they live on the road. Some are house proud and buy things to feather their nest. We are all different, which is why we all have different challenges staying in isolation. We have different likes and dislikes! How else can you explain your in- laws?

Aries (March 21-April 19)

For the next four weeks, your world is about cash flow, earnings and assets. At the end of this week, something unexpected might happen with your earnings or something that you own. You’re a pioneer and a warrior. As a warrior, you expect your queen or government to provide you with your horse and kit so you can do their bidding. It’s always been this way, which is why you need security. Fear not! If your future looks uncertain, you only have to meet it one day at a time. Who is more resourceful, brave and resilient? Your future has not fallen flat – it’s just different. Share your ideas with others. The drastic changes taking place will create vacuums that need to be filled by those who act fast!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

No matter what obstacles you face in the next four weeks, know this: You have the advantage of having the Sun in your sign, which happens only once a year. This gives you power and boosts your confidence! It attracts good fortune to you as well as influential people. It not only gives you an edge to deal with what you face – it also gives you the chance to recharge your batteries for the rest of the year. You will attract money to you (and many will buy pretty things). Mars at the top of your chart, arouses your ambition, which gives you the get-up-and-go to accomplish what you want to do. Bravo!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Keep a low profile for the next four weeks. (Not usually your style.) By nature, you’re curious, active and busy cultivating your adoring peanut gallery. But since your birthday looms ahead, it means your personal year is ending. The Sun is “hiding” in your chart before it steps forth on your birthday. This means the next four weeks are the perfect opportunity to think about your future and what you want for your new year ahead. Ideas? Incidentally, you will charm anyone you encounter because fair Venus is in your sign. This is a good week to buy wardrobe items, which is always challenging if you do this online, unless you wear a toga.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

In the next four weeks, something will happen that makes you appreciate friendships and the people in your life. This appreciation might also apply to a group. You will welcome a chance to use a friend as a sounding board for your ideas about your future. If you’re involved in a group, you might flex your muscles and exert your influence in a leadership role. However, next weekend, something unexpected will happen. A friendship might end or someone might do something that surprises you. Or you might find yourself involved with someone who is different and unusual. (Could be interesting.)

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

Oh wow! For the next four weeks, the Sun is at the top of your chart. (This happens only once a year.) This means you will be thrust in the spotlight of the Sun, and this light flatters you! Expect to be asked to take on increased responsibilities, even if you don’t do anything special. Yes – good lighting is everything. (“Are you ready for your close-up, Miss Garbo?”) Nevertheless, by the end of the week, something unexpected will happen that triggers your feelings of independence. You might want to rebel! Meanwhile, although Mars makes you impatient with partners and close friends, fair Venus makes you charming and diplomatic with others, including people in organizations.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

The next four weeks are challenging and refreshing. The challenging part is that you want to get outta Dodge. You want to travel and expand your world to discover adventure and be turned on by life! However, most of us are staying at home for the benefit of ourselves and others. This puts the kibosh on travel. But hey, you can still explore new ideas, study, learn or travel online by seeing exotic places and fascinating cities. Something unexpected, perhaps a surprise need to travel or news from afar will occur at the end of the week? Meanwhile, keep plugging away because bosses and parents are impressed with your efforts. (They really are.)

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

You will explore your emotions and psychological makeup in the next four weeks. Perhaps it’s all this extra time? The solitude of home isolation? Perhaps it’s triggered by thoughts of impermanence and your own mortality. Whatever the cause, you will be passionate and intense in the next four weeks! You will want to experience life at a feeling level not just an intellectual grasp of things. You might encounter a teacher or a set of circumstances that provokes this inner exploration. Focus on finances, shared property and inheritances. You might try to get a loan. You cannot deny that there are strong psychological compulsions that lead to a change of behaviour within you that you might not understand. Ready to knock on the doors of perception?

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

The Sun is opposite your sign for the next four weeks. (This occurs only once a year.) This is actually a wonderful opportunity for you to learn more about yourself through your one-to-one relations with others. Examine your relationship with your spouse or partner to see how it does or does not fill your needs. Are you happy? Are you unhappy? How do you fill their needs? This is your chance to be more aware of what’s going on. Intimate relations look good now because Venus favours sex and romance. Nevertheless, Mars at the bottom of your chart might make you behave in petty and irritable ways. (Whaaat?) Yes, it triggers domestic tension, especially with parents. You win some, you lose some. It was ever thus.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

You’re in work mode for the next four weeks. Not only will you check your immediate surroundings to see what needs to be done, you will also strive to be better organized and more efficient. This is your quest! You will set such high standards for yourself that in addition to wanting to be better organized, you will want to be healthier as well. “I want it all!” Great! Motivation is everything. Be aware that you will also want to work on behalf of others. Fortunately, Venus opposite your sign makes you cooperative and diplomatic. Fear not you’re no pushover because Mars makes you identify with your ideas and encourages you to speak up! Oh yeah!

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

Oh joy! For the next four weeks, the Sun will be in the most fun-loving part of your chart. This means your focus on home and family will shift (although you might still be at home); nevertheless, you will feel freer to express yourself and be who you really are! You will want to get out and have a good time but you will figure out ways to amuse yourself at home. (You’re smart.) You will feel lighter than usual. Dare we say happier? (We did.) Enjoy playful times with kids. You can expect your relationships to be more lighthearted because you are happy to be in your own skin. (Likely, you will spend more money.)

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Even if you’ve been staying at home, in the four weeks ahead, you will focus on home and family more than ever. (Go figure.) For many, this is because you’re involved with a parent more than usual. You will feel good being in familiar surroundings because you want to establish a base for your activities. This doesn’t mean you won’t live up to the demands of your outer world because you will. Nevertheless, you welcome any chance to be by yourself to contemplate life and meditate. Memories of the past will come up. In fact, this will help any psychological self-evaluation that you might explore. (It’s easiest to train children when they’re Jung, and easily Freudian.)

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)

In the next four weeks, it will be challenging to stay at home because, you’re restless! Because you want to learn and explore new ideas, you’re eager to reach out to others and enlighten them about your thoughts. This is why you will talk to siblings and neighbours more than usual (via Zoom, Skype, whatever). Note: It will be easy to write, study and learn something new! Your challenge is that you can’t travel, which is what you really want to do. Fortunately, Venus will pave the way for warm family relations. Meanwhile, Mars encourages working alone or behind the scenes. It’s all good.
