Which RBD character are you based on your zodiac? (Based on the Mexican group RBD)

The best kind of daydreams are ones that are about living life one day as a rich superstar: sí, or sí? Imagine what you could do, where you could go, and what you could buy! Well, to help those daydreams along, we’ve consulted your zodiac to find out what kind of RBD character you would be on your way to superstardom. Because the best kind of superstars are the ones only 90’s kids remember.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Instagram: @michelonline

Aries, it has to be said, you are one hella hot hothead. As a superstar, you’d make a reputation for yourself by starting some salacious feuds. If asked, no-one would know how they got started. But there’s no way they’d want them to end, either! You’d take every opportunity you could to act the diva, which would give you a reputation for being a bit rude.

Instagram: @zoraida.eddy

Your RBD character: Luján is your RBD twin, Aries. You’re an active babe, and it shows!

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Instagram: @madyy_avilaa

As a popstar, Taurus, you’d be the sensible one. Nobody could get any dirt on you because there is no dirt. Although, talking about creative direction with you would be hard – it’s either your way, or the highway!

Instagram: @dulcemariayrbd

Your RBD character: And who would your RBD character be, Taurus? Téo, naturally. Your groundedness is what keeps you level-headed. Relatively speaking.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Instagram: @camicata31

Gemini, you’d make one hell of a superstar. To be honest, you were born for it. As a naturally social person, you’d talk up a storm with anyone who’d listen. Although, your big mouth might get you in trouble with the press! But with your ever-changing personality, it would only be a matter of time before the media would get wind of your really crazy antics!

Instagram: @truelove_rebeldemexicano

Your RBD character: For you, Gemini, your RBD doppelgänger would be Diego. The real question is: which of you out two-faces the other?

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Instagram: @bre_ontiveros

Your life as a superstar would only exacerbate your sensitive self, Cancer. After all, the stress of being obscenely rich and famous gets to everyone at some point. And your sign is the most vulnerable to it of all. Remember Britney’s breakdown in 2007? That would be you. Probably.

Instagram: @alfonsoherrera01

Your RBD character: Cancer, your RBD twin is Miguel. This probably comes as little surprise to you, since the both of you are guided by your emotions.  

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Instagram: @monicamoonbaby

Hi hey hello, Leo! Of all the star signs, you’d thrive the most as a superstar. You crave the spotlight all the time anyway, so making it big would suit you just fine. Although, you’d probably find yourself admitted to a psych ward at some point in your career. Your ego could only get so big before it would be a problem.

Instagram: @screenrebelde

Your RBD character: Did someone say Mía, Leo? Because that’s who you are. All Mia, all the time.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Instagram: @_nicolesann

Honestly, Virgo, superstardom would ruin you. You’d be the classic clean-cut kid on the scene. No sex, no drugs, no rock-and-roll for you, innocent Virgo. But, the workload would get to you at some point, and that’s where it would all go downhill for you. 

Instagram: @rbd.vive

Your RBD character: As the quintessential girl-next-door type, Virgo, your RBD character would be Lupita. 

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Instagram: @analu_695

The biggest struggle you’d have as a massive celebrity, Libra, would be the balancing act. There are only so many adopted children from Africa that you can care for at once, after all. And, you’ve also gotta figure out some way of stopping your wayward partner from sleeping with the nanny. Let’s face it, Libra, no matter how much critical acclaim you’d receive for your work, there’s no way of stopping the tabloids from doing what they do best: ruin reputations.

Instagram: @truelove_rebeldemexicano

Your RBD character: Your fame-driven balancing act would mirror the struggles of of RBD’s Roberta, Libra. 

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Instagram: @yana_m_martinez_

Scorpio, Scorpio, Scorpio. Your lifestyle as one of the rich and famous would be riddled with sex scandals. And would you have it any other way? If you’re going to be a celebrity, then you should at least milk it for what it’s worth before your inevitable public disgrace. At least you’d go out … with a bang

Instagram: @graziboyerbr

Your RBD character: Just like RBD’s Victoria, you both command a reputation for being easy, Scorpio. 

Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)

Instagram: @fans_ana_paula_bebe

Your life as a celebrity would be nothing but good times, Sagittarius. You’d use your wealth and fame to throw the best kinds of parties, and every man and his dog would be invited. But please try to keep it reigned in, Sagittarius. You wouldn’t want to end up like Gatsby, would you?

Instagram: @miasxclub

Your RBD character: Sagittarius, your RBD character would have to be Tomás. You’re good at heart, and enjoy a bueno fiesta on the reg.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)

Instagram: @glamarisshop

Your reputation as a superstar would be built off the fact that you’d be selling your structured, all-healthy, all-natural lifestyle to anyone who’d listen. Just think of the potential: swathes of makeup and clothing lines, a stellar ‘gram, and a picture-perfect child and husband, to boot. Not too shabby, Capricorn.

Instagram: @_graciasrbd

Your RBD character: Your RBD doppleganger is Nico, Capricorn. Above all else, you’re bound by your duty to your friends and family. And really, that’s not a bad thing.

Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)

Instagram: @renata

Aquarius, you live life to a different beat, and as one of the rich and famous, you’d be no different. To be honest, you’d probably become a bit of a fixture on the celebrity circuit. You’re the most likely of of the signs to organise the next Live Aid, so that’s something. Plus, you’re eccentric enough to keep people interested without being too over the top.

Instagram: @hablemosdeseriesrd

Your RBD character: For you, Aquarius, your RBD character would be Méndez. You’re social, and you’re funny, just like him.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Instagram: @_lauraestrada__

To be frank, Pisces, you may not be cut out for the superstar lifestyle. It’s not made for gentle people like you. Or, maybe you’re not really made for it. Either way, what we’re saying is that you’re just too good for whole scene.

Instagram: @rbdmex_fan

Your RBD character: Celina is your kindred soul from RBD, Pisces. The pair of you share that same type of sensitivity, after all.

So was your zodiac spot on, or do you think chasing fame and fortune would give you a personality transplant? And on a scale of one to ten, how much do you want to go and watch RBD now? If you like what you’ve read, click the Facebook icon above to see more content like this.

The Spanish ‘Star-Spangled Banner’ Is Being Shared To Honor Hispanic Workers Fighting COVID-19

The Spanish ‘Star-Spangled Banner’ Is Being Shared To Honor Hispanic Workers Fighting COVID-19

There’s no denying that the world looks a lot different now than it did in 1947. And while the list of all of the positive changes that the decades stretching between now and then have done for the world and minorities, a recent campaign is also highlighting the ways in which our current president could take some notes on certain values the United States held dear during this time. Particularly ones that had been pressed for by one of our former presidents.

As part of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s “Good Neighbor Policy” effort, he worked to promote positive and healthy relations between the United States in Latin American countries.

At the time Rooseveltaimed to ensure that the North, Central and South American countries avoided breaking under the influence of Axis countries during World War II. As part of this campaign, Roosevelt comissioned a Spanish and a Portuguese version of the U.S. national anthem. According to Time Magazine he also “recruited Hollywood to participate in this Good Neighbor Policy; Walt Disney went on goodwill tour of South America, hoping to find a new market for his films, and ended up producing two movies inspired by the trip: Saludos Amigos (1942) and The Three Caballeros (1944). The Brazilian star Carmen Miranda also got a boost, and her role in The Gang’s All Here made her even more famous in the U.S. And alongside these cross-cultural exchanges, the U.S. government decided it needed an anthem that could reach Spanish speakers.”

According to NPR, Clotilde Arias, wrote wrote the translation at the end of World War II, was born in the small Peruvian city, Iquitos in 1901 and moved to New York City to become a composer when she was 22-years-old. Her version of the anthem is now part of an exhibit at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C.

Now in an effort to support Latino communities affected by the coronavirus, the non-profit We Are All Human Foundation’s Hispanic Star campaign commissioned the a remake of the song.

Hoping to raise awareness of its Hispanic Recovery Plan and efforts to help to connect Hispanic small businesses and workers with resources during the pandemic, the campaign brought the old recording from obscurity.

For the song, the 2019 winner of the singing competition La Voz,  Jeidimar Rijos, performed “El Pendón Estrellado.” Or, “The Star-Spangled Banner.” 

The song has already received quite a bit of comments and support on Youtube.

Hang in there, fam. We can only get through this together.

You know you’ve received some real tesoro when you open your delivery and see the holographic cellophane. Unmistakable and unique products are what make The Flowerchild Bruja’s shop un cielo de flores.

3. The Hoodwitch Store

Thank you for all of your love & support to those who have been readers and customers of @thehoodwitch over the years. ♥️You know truly how hard I work and that this is my livelihood and culture. Visual art and magic ARE my life and practice. Not a peach flavored “turquoise” glitter drink. My magic is in my blood, my magic is in my ability to bring life to my visions, it is creation & destruction. Over the last 6 years, I have been so honored and lucky to be featured in some of the largest media publications internationally not limited to Instagram. This is bigger than that and the creative team for Starbucks knew that. I have personally worked on consulting large companies in their design concepts this work comes naturally to me. “So what’s the big fuss?” My personal style has become synonymous with the visual aesthetic of my brand. No, I absolutely did not “invent” the crystal balls nor acrylic nails but What I created was a space for myself along with other POC to feel represented and have visual imagery that was representative of us. The colorful candles of my local botanicas, my gold jewelry, and my long nails clutching my crystals are certainly not “new” but to see them presented in a manner that I shared visually in this space was. Katherine de Vos Devine @devosdevine is a lawyer and art historian who wrote a powerful and insightful look as to what exactly is happening with this situation and we are sharing it in our story today because more than anything she truly gives the full tea of the situation. I can strip away the crystal balls, the nail art, and delete all of my beautifully curated photos but I will always be me, I will always be my grandmother’s voices and wisdom. I will create, and I will always know my value and my worth. I trust and believe that my ancestors and my guides are looking after me. These giants may have the money to bully artists, creatives, and small business but we know the truth and absolutely must not allow it. As a small business owner, I appreciate you standing with us in this uphill journey and even if it goes nowhere, at the end of the day I can laugh to myself knowing that Starbucks made a drink inspired by HW 🔮

If you’re in the market for an obsidian scrying mirror, unique tarot decks or nail polish for your mystic manos, then The Hoodwitch Store is your one-stop bruja shop. Be sure to also check out the Bruja Bookshop tab, where you’ll find vintage, one-of-a-kind libros to up your witchy wisdom. The shop offers some rare finds en español as well. However, make sure you stay up to date on the latest inventory. These goods sell out fast!

4. House of Intuition

If you live in LA, you’ve most likely heard of House of Intuition. With four brick and mortar stores throughout the area, plus an online shop, it’s probably a wise investment to grab one of their “Success” intention candles. Their beautifully colored novenas aren’t the only reason to check out the shop, though. Seriously, this casa is staked with everything from crystals skulls, cauldrons and wands to a line called “Hair Mystics” featuring crystal-infused hair mists. You’ll be glad your intuition led you here.  

5. Lunar Magic Shop

Lunar Magic Shop is the super affordable and super thoughtful shop with some of our favorite bruja apparel. You will for sure want to grab the “My Mom Will Hex You” tee for the little one in your life or the “I Am My Own Sacred Place” one for yourself. While you’re at it, you might as well secure the “Motherhood”and “Student” crystal kit bags. This small shop definitely has the whole family’s brujeria needs in mind.

6. Curandera Press

While this shop is currently taking a small hiatus, they will re-launch on August 1. This gives us time to save up for a big vela haul. We could all use some divine intervention with lazy lovers and bad hair days, right? With Curandera Press’ “No Mas Amante Perezoso” and “Good Hair Day” velas, your prayers are answered. We’re excited to see what intentions they roll out next.
