20 Classic Traits Of An Aquarius

It’s all well and good to know that you’re an Aquarius, but what does that actually mean? Don’t worry, babe, we’ve got you covered. We’ll make sure you’ll be able to talk the ear off the next person who asks you about your star sign. Here are 20 classic traits of an Aquarius!

1. You’re born between the 21st of January and the 18th of February.

Instagram: @bulletdailys

This is kinda obvious, for those of us who are into the signs of the zodiac. But, not everyone knows that these dates are inclusive. So for those of you born on the 21st of January, or the 18th of February: congratulations! You’re most definitely an Aquarius.

2. Your ruling planet is Uranus.

Instagram: @seeker_of_the_cosmos

Sorry, but you’re gonna get a lot of posterior-related jokes over this one. Uranus is associated with sudden upheavals in people’s lives. Let’s face it, is this really surprising when life is never ever boring for you, Aquarius?

3. You’re a humanitarian to your core.

Instagram: @fran_brevis1

You’re progressive, and it shows. You know that you can’t just ignore what’s going on in the world, so you try to make your corner of it just that little bit better. This also means that you’re the most likely of the signs to fact-check every Donald Trump tweet, and then post aggressively about it.

4. Innovation and intelligence are your best friends.

Instagram: @orbit.ana

Remember when Apple Inc. said, “Think Different”? Well, you’re the original, “Think Different”. Some people say you’re weird. Others say you’re a genius. You know that you’re both: it just depends on what way your mood takes you.

5. Friends come easily to you.

Instagram: @meportemal

You’re a friend magnet. People like how welcoming you can be – so much so, that you can end up associating with some pretty strange amigos. You’re loyal to a fault, too. When people make friends with you, they know they’re making a friend for life. 

6. Did someone say, Miss Independent?

Instagram: @mariamonterochile

Even though you’re good with people, you also like your alone time. This can make you come across as a bit aloof. But, let’s face it, you know that your mysteriousness can be hot as hell, too.

7. You’re detached and unpredictable.

Instagram: @fridacoss

Part of this is due to the fact that your intelligence sets you apart. If your friends and family had to sum you up in one word, they’d say, “smart”. So, really, it’s their fault if they think you’re detached and unpredictable: they’re just not operating on your level.

8. Blue and blue-green are your lucky colors.

Instagram: @k_aesthetic

As the sign of the water bearer, it just makes sense that blue and blue-green are your lucky colors. Maybe it’s time to start wearing some blue and watch your luck improve!

9. You’re compatible with four other star signs.

Instagram: @r.baudouin

And who are they? Look for a Libra, Gemini, Sagittarius or Aries when it comes to friendship and love. Not that you don’t get along with the other signs of the zodiac, but these signs set you alight with their intelligence, passion and zest for life. It’s always nice meeting a kindred soul, right?

10. But there are two signs that might grind your gears.

Instagram: @__anakarinaaa

Taurus and Scorpio are two signs of the zodiac that will stump you. You’re a dreamer, and both of these signs are quite pragmatic. But you know what they say, sometimes opposites attract, don’t they?

11. You can be a bit nervous at times.

Instagram: @beautywithnana

You might find that you can be prone to anxiety. So, don’t be afraid to tell people you’d prefer to skip the massive, scary rollercoasters when you’re spending the day at a theme park. 

12. You have a love-hate relationship with exercise.

Instagram: @vshleydiaz

You want to be fit, but you hate exercise. Don’t. We. All. You need to dedicate yourself to something quirky before you’d find yourself really enjoying your exercise routine. It’s time for you to find your closest martial arts dojo, or local pole dancing studio!

13. Brains are sexy to you.

Instagram: @optic.dream

In the wise words of Canadian hippie Alanis Morissette, all you want is intellectual intercourse. If someone doesn’t have two brain cells to rub together, should they even be allowed to rub anything else? The answer for you, of course, is no.

14. You’re super respectful of your partner’s individuality in a relationship.

Instagram: @adrianadelaguardia6

You want the both of you to be your own person – just because you got into a relationship doesn’t mean either of you stop being who you are! You are your partner’s biggest cheerleader. They want to go back to college? You’re right with them. They want to go to the moon? You’ll happily help them train to be an astronaut. It’s the Aquarius way.

15. You find it hard to open up in relationships.

Instagram: @bettymonterola

And no-one knows why. Is it because you don’t want to burden your significant other with your problems? Maybe you want your relationship to focus on the happy, good stuff. Anyway, your partner won’t know why until you open up to them about it.

16. You make a great boss.

Instagram: @_jazminglez

You make a frank and friendly leader, and you respect the intelligence and independence of your colleagues. This makes you one hell of a team player, and dependable to boot. Why wouldn’t anyone want to work with you?

17. You get itchy feet really easily.

Instagram: @travel_latina

You hate the idea of being stuck in a rut because of your job. Or your relationship. Or the place you’re living in. It’s this kind of attitude that takes you on volunteering trips overseas, or back to school. You just know that you’ve got to keep moving forward.

18. You don’t care about money when it comes to work.

Instagram: @marianbecky_

Well, to a certain extent. You like to know you’re being paid what you’re worth. But, it’s more important that you’re doing something stimulating. For you Aquarius, there is nothing worse than being bored out of your brains.

19. Your perfect job taps into your intelligence and communication abilities.

Instagram: @milliedelgadonews

Think along the lines of science-based fields, such as biology. You’d also work well as an engineer since it draws on your passion for technology. On the other hand, with your strong communication skills, you’d also do well as a psychologist, social worker, journalist, public relations consultant, or in politics, as a politician or lobbyist. 

20. Your fellow Aquariuses are pretty successful, revolutionary people.

Instagram: @quanta_gramm

As an Aquarius, you keep the company of the likes of Abraham Lincoln, Charles Darwin, Thomas Edison and Albert Einstein. Not bad, hey? Surely you’ve got a chance to join their ranks in history, and change the world for the better!

The Tamales You Should Eat According To Your Zodiac Sign

The Tamales You Should Eat According To Your Zodiac Sign

Look, we get it. You want to talk about the important things in life. Family, friends, and tamales. So we consulted the stars about the important stuff, and they revealed to us just what kind of tamal you would be if you were given the opportunity. Or, at least, the kind of tamales you should be eating.

We know: you can thank us later.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Instagram: @deitasmith

Aries, you know that your type of tamal would have to match the fire in your soul. It’s the very thing that powers your courageous, passionate personality. And your, uh, not-so-shining moments when you’re feeling a little short-tempered and aggressive.

Your tamal:

Instagram: @pacodeteran

 Yours is one spicy de puerco. If it’s not hot, it’s not your tamal, babe. You know that if other people can’t handle the heat, then they’re missing out on something really special.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Instagram: @_lacurvanaa

Taurus, the first thing you probably thought when you saw this zodiac was: really? You’re too practical to think of people in terms of tamales. That’s why we like you. When people say they like a Taurus, they’re saying that they like your reliability and your sense of stability. And they’re probably ignoring the fact that you can be stubborn as all hell, and a little uncompromising to boot. 

Your tamal:

Instagram: @mlisetcc

 Did someone say nacatamales? Because that’s you – it’s all you. People come for the groundedness of a nacatamal, and stay for the unexpected burst of delicious flavor, just like they do with you.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Instagram: @leleponsitalia_

We don’t mean to show up your significant other, Gemini, but we’ve got you pegged. You’re gentle and affectionate. But, you’re also a little pessimistic and insecure. Your kind of tamal is one that is just as mild-mannered, and doesn’t know just how good it actually is.

Your tamal: 

Instagram: @lacalendamex

Your tamal soulmate is de mole. A hella scrumptious one, that is. Part of what makes you so attractive is your flexibility in tastes and types, just like a good de mole tamal.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Instagram: @___kissmyash__

Cancer, we’re sure you already know why people are attracted to you. You’re in tune with your emotional side, and it shows. You can be tenacious and highly imaginative. Of course, people need to watch out for your more moody and manipulative self, too. Your kind of tamales mixes your best with … what could be better.

Your tamal:

Instagram: @senoritavegan

You now know why you have an affinity for rajas con queso. Any kind of sharper undertones are softened by a cheesy nature.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Instagram: @desisthename

When people think about a Leo, they’re thinking about your warm-hearted and cheerful nature. Although, it’s pretty hard to ignore your self-centredness and arrogance, sometimes. To be honest, it’s hard to ignore anything about you, Leo! You thrive on being the star of the show – whether that’s when you’re chilling with your numero uno, or discovering your tamal self.

Your tamal: 

Instagram: @alexis.soto.3323

The de pollo wasn’t just made for eating: it was made to be your star sign mascot. That amazing mix of flavors is exactly your personality, in tamal form.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Instagram: @roxxymayhem

Virgo, your loyalty and willingness to work hard are what draw people to you. Your kindness is what makes people stay around you. Sometimes though, you worry just a bit too much. Your kind of tamal is one that shows just how lovely you are. 

Your tamal: 

Instagram: @housetogove

Did you really believe that you were going to be paired with anything other than a Colombian bollos? It’s got that same down-to-earth feel to it that really shines through for you, when you’re at your best.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Instagram: @mfatimablanco

If someone had to describe you off the top of their head, they’d say that you’re cooperative, diplomatic, and you try to be as fair-minded as possible. But, they also know that you’re exactly the type of person to carry a grudge, too. You wouldn’t think that you could find these traits in a tamal, but you’d be wrong Libra.

Your tamal:

Instagram: @adilene_cossio

 If tamal could be a spirit animal, then de elote would be yours. Just like you, it’s a dish for everyone!

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Instagram: @supermicnanny

If you looked up “Scorpio” in a thesaurus, it would read like this: resourceful, brace, passionate, stubborn, distrusting, jealous, secretive, violent. And sure, it would clearly suck as a thesaurus, but would that make it any less accurate? Your kind of tamal is unexpectedly one hell of a snack, just like you.

Your tamal:

Instagram: @notasdeviajemx

You probably knew already why you were dreaming about chowing down on a little Mexican corundas, didn’t you, Scorpio? It’s small in size, but still packs a punch when it’s paired with the right masa.

Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)

Instagram: @itzabernal

If you won a million dollars, Sagittarius, what would you do with it? You’d probably give away half of it, insult the three distant cousins who’d suddenly show up in your life, and pay for a semi-okay comedian to entertain you at dinner for a month. Because that’s your jam, and your kind of tamal would do exactly the same thing. If it was sentient, of course. 

Your tamal: 

Instagram: @tamaleexpress_reno

You know who’s all about the dulce tamales? You are. Just think about it: sweet, and filled with raisins, coconut, or whatever tickles your fancy.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)

Instagram: @randomtandemduo

Capricorn, you’re the type of babe to watch Dance Moms and be more interested in how the kids are progressing over the mom-drama. And that’s why we love you. You’re responsible and disciplined … and a bit of a know-it-all. You tamal has that same sense of structure.

Your tamal: 

Instagram: @anasonmainst

Could it be anything other than the Chilean humitas? It looks pretty much the same as you do after a few drinks: wrapped in corn leaves, seasoned with basil and sometimes topped with a slice of tomato.

Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)

Instagram: @cintyacontreras

If you’re not reading this from either a volunteering trip in the south of Nepal, or from the most hipster bar in town, are you even Aquarius-ing right? It’s okay, we love you for your progressiveness and individuality, even if you can be a little temperamental and uncompromising at times. Your tamales are all about finding that spice in your life.

Your tamal: 

Instagram: @triciasig

Repeat after us: paches, paches, paches. Did we mention paches? They’ve got a real irresistible burst of flavor from a mix of hot spices with either meat or vegetables, depending on whether you’re living on the vegetarian side of life.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Instagram: @anaronzvinkliene89

Pisces, in this world that can be too fast and too brutal for some, your emotional vulnerability is what’s so great about you. Some would say that your capacity to trust is a weakness, but let’s face it, shouldn’t we all be a bit more trusting? We trust you’ll like your tamal match, anyway.

Your tamal:

Instagram: @beastoakland

 With your personality, Pisces, you are definitely one for oaxaqueños. You don’t need any corn husks in your life, when you’ve got banana leaves! And, we’re sure that just like a good oaxaqueños, you’re stuffed with chicken and mole negro most the time, too.

Were you surprised by your tamal match, or were you already munching your way through your zodiac’s tamales? Let us know what you think on our Facebook page by clicking the icon at the top of the page!

From Squoval to Stiletto, Your Nail Style Reveals Your Secret Horoscope Sign

Zodiac and Horoscope

From Squoval to Stiletto, Your Nail Style Reveals Your Secret Horoscope Sign

Only moments after flopping down in the chair at a nail salon, you’re faced with some serious questions: Squared or rounded? Long or short? Decisions, decisions, ladies. Surprisingly, your answer may reveal more about you than you ever dreamed possible. Your abuela always warned you to never leave the house without makeup, but did she tell you that your choice of nail style could reveal the core of who you are?

We never want you to head out into the world uninformed, so we’ve crafted this handy little guide. That way you know what message you’re sending the world, and also what star sign your inner-self was born under.

Aries, Meet Adventurous and Outgoing  Nails.

Instagram @jelani_themuse

Lipstick style nails are an absolute must for the adventurous, outgoing Aries. Notice the unique slant at the tip? This style captures the essence of the playful Aries sign, with just enough edge to call it her own. Like the nails she dons, the Aries gal always bounces back after turmoil. Live dangerously, Aries!

Taurus, Sensual and Down-to-Earth Squoval

Instagram @shanna_threesixzero

Few styles are more traditional and earthy than squoval nails, which provides the perfect complement to the sensual Taurean. Universally flattering, squoval nails have a flat tip with softened edges, an undeniable analogy for those born under this star sign. Just don’t break those talons, for there is a n unhampered tsunami lurking beneath the calm ocean trough. Embrace the calm, Taurus!

Gemini, the Fashion Diva Stiletto Claws

Instagram @Roxysnailboutique

They may look fierce, but just like the forever-young Gemini, stiletto nails are vulnerable and prone to breakage. Terminally curious, our Gemini sisters can be delightfully mischievous, which plays well with this super-long and sharp nail style. It’s important to remember that those born under this sign, much like the nails she flashes, can be used as weapons, so tread lightly when it comes to conflict. We love your playful spirit, Gemini!

Cancer, Compassionate + Emotional Almond Nail

Instagram @Texasnailsandspa

Life is in constant motion for those born under the Cancer sign because they live so much in their internal oceans of emotions. It’s befitting, then, that the traditional, rounded almond-style nails are oft associated with the Cancer gals. The nail wall is tapered to a round peak, just like a real almond, and has that ongoing circular motion – like an ocean. Snuggle up, Cancer!

Leo, Charismatic and Stylish

Instagram @imagicnails

Hold on to your cafe con leche, girls, it’s about to get real. Nothing says ‘fun’ more than the positive-thinking Leo, just as nothing spells ‘playful’ quite like the flare nail style. As the name suggests, this delish type of nail flares up and out – just like the uber-confident Leo who prides herself on loyalty, good fortune, and charisma. Let’s hear it for our Leo sisters!

Virgo, Always of Service

Instagram @Chelseyhibbertnailartist

You remember those medias, the ugly ones with lace plastered on, that you were only allowed to wear on special occasions? Or the plastic-covered furniture that could only be used when special guests stopped by? Chances are, those high standards were prescribed by the ever-giving Virgos. Which is why it can hardly be surprising that the nail style ruled by this sign is the short and simple round nails. Filed into a perfect semi-circle, this shape resonates well with the reliable sisters born under the Virgo sign. Time to raise a toast to the Virgos among us!

Libra, the Peace-Loving Gals We Love

Instagram @studio25cosmetics

Seeking grace and refinement, the Libras among us are perfectly suited for the mountain peak nail style. Just as you know to ask your elders for a bendicion when you arrive or leave the house, our Libran sisters prefer a style that conveys respect (while holding on to their ever-important good fashion sense). If you crave a look that is simultaneously functional and eye-catching, harmonious and a little…different… you may very well be born under the sign of the scales. Peace, Libra gals!

Scorpio, Passionate + Powerful + Unforgiving

Instagram @Erikalovesbeauty

Everyone knows — and loves — a Scorpio. Their reputation precedes them. And who could fault us for secretly envying the mysterious ways of these “oldest souls?” Yet beneath that veneer is a person who is exceptionally vulnerable to emotional rifts and turmoil. Which brings us to her fave nail style: the pointed tip. Not as tapered as the stiletto, pointed nails are generally pretty straight until the unorthodox tip, which is filed to a triangular shape. This style does well with acrylics, which makes sense given than the shape on a natural nail is apt to soften and break. Sound familiar, Scorpios? Stay wise, lady Scorpions!

Sagittarius, Seekers of Spontaneity and Optimism

Instagram @citygrave

It can be difficult trying to corral our free-spirited Sagittarius sisters. Just like your medicine cabinet always had Vicks VapoRub “just because,” those born under this star sign can always be counted on to have a ‘yes’ even when the response should be ‘no.’ Skinny dipping at midnight? Count her in! Cracking jokes at a funeral? That’s her. And just because you don’t follow society’s rules (overrated!) doesn’t mean you don’t care. Take your preferred nail style, for example. You embrace coffin nails not only for their beauty, but for their damn shocking name. Way to surprise us all, Sagittarius!

Capricorn, a Mountain Goat Among Us

Instagram @deluxnailsgnd

Sure, it’d be easy to assume that the sign represented by a mountain goat would possess none other than the mountain style nails. Yet this would be incorrect. See, our Capricorn sisters are known for their conservative, cautious, and compassionate traits. Which is why the simple, classic oval nails are a perfect fit. With a more extreme curvature than round nails, this style has a slimming effect on all finger shapes. What makes it most appealing for the Capricorn lady, however, is that it’s designed to never crumble under pressure — just like the Capricorn herself. Steady and solid is your kind of beat, Capricorn!

Aquarius, the Trendsetters of Our Time

Instagram @acatinblack

Those born under the sign of Aquarius not only march to a different drummer, they make up new music as they go along. This explains their emphasis on nail art as opposed to nail shape. You can find them sporting styles that reflect the season (painted bunnies for Easter, anyone?) and colors to match (red and green in December?). What you won’t find, however, is a lady who hasn’t given careful consideration to just how she wants her nails to appear. Now what cause can you go help, Aquarius?

Pisces, an Otherworldly Girl

Instagram @nails_by_maryberry

What happens when you combine the Pisces’ inner quest to explore their “ivory tower syndrome” with an innate attraction toward fantasy? Let’s just say that can lead them into some most unusual and unlikely styles. Take their choice of nails, for example. Otherworldly. Alluring. Sensitive. All these are apt descriptions of the Pisces woman and her sense of style. Which is why it’s hard to nail down (pun intended) exactly what this girl is up to. Jewels, polka dots, and fragmented colors are only a few of the tricks up this gal’s glove. Way to explore your creativity, Pisces!
