What Would Your Super Power Be According To Your Zodiac Sign

Have you ever caught yourself daydreaming, and wondering … what if, in an alternate universe, you had superpowers? And even more importantly, what kind of superpowers would you be gifted with? Wonder no more, amigo. Find your zodiac sign in the list below, and see what newfound powers you’d be exploiting in another life.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Instagram: @ashleydawncupcake

Aries, you’re guided by your strong emotions. You’re the type of person to be completely fearless in using your newfound superpowers, for good or evil. So long as you can find new adventures with your superpowers, you don’t mind what they are.

Instagram: @food

Which is why your superpower, the ability to control other people’s allergies, is chaotic is your hands. Someone’s pissed you off? Bueno. They can’t eat tortillas for the week. On the flip side, you’ve also got a unique skill that’s hella marketable.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Instagram: @danny_fernandez18

You’re born under an earth sign that’s all about strength, stamina, and potency, Taurus. People know you for having an air of reliability and sensibleness. Gifted with superpowers, you’d probably try to use them in the most responsible manner possible.

Instagram: @nerdtender

Which is the reason why it would take you a while to figure out your superpower. Roll the drums, please, because your superpower would be the ability to generate seismic waves equal to your blood alcohol content. Get drinking, Taurus!

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Instagram: @eva_roxy

We know that you’re a chatterbox, Gemini, even at the best of times. You love to socialize, and you get a lot of joy from being around other people. Chances are, if you had a superpower, it wouldn’t stay a secret for long.

Instagram: @kgombita

Your superpower would be super-ventriloquism. You’d be able to project your voice over to the other side of the globe. That’s right, you could use your voice to create hauntings the world over! Or, sternly tell your friend not to hook up with that creepy dude from the club. The world is your oyster, Gemini!

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Instagram: @itsmiagreen

You’re a people person, Cancer. Your emotional and sensitive nature means that you truly value those around you, and you like to feel connected to them. You enjoy being involved in the lives of your family and friends.

Instagram: @_ztraveltheworldz_

Which means that you would thrive with the superpower of knowing where anyone is at any given moment. Yup, you wouldn’t need to stalk people on Snapchat or Instagram anymore to figure out where your friends are. Beyond having the superpower every helicopter mom dreams of, you’d also have a stellar career in forensics.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Instagram: @miss.fortunecookie

Born under the sign of the lion, you are the epitome of pride and self-confidence, Leo. You have a courageous outlook on life, and you certainly don’t shy away from the spotlight.

Instagram: @happycatclub

The superpower perfect for you is the ability to communicate with all manner of cats. Whether they actually want to respond to you is another question. Be that as it may, you’d have a great career as a veterinarian. Or, maybe as a safari tour guide. Just, uh, try to keep from turning into a crazy cat lady.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Instagram: @marthastcloud

Virgo, you’re known for your sense of perfectionism. And, if you don’t get things perfect the first time around, you have no problem turning to workaholism to get things sorted.

Instagram: @thepaintedfarmclockery

Your superpower would be an uncanny ability to manage and perceive time. While most people wouldn’t want to know just how badly they’ve procrastinated, with your busy mind, this is the sort of thing that’s your jam. You could plan your workout, entire work schedule, slip in a sneaky fiesta appearance, and account for late traffic with your superpower.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Instagram: @joanita.tur

Your existence is built around balancing all of your commitments, Libra. With your intelligence, you spend a lot of time weighing up your options and deciding how to best achieve harmony in your life. Sometimes, it can be hard for you to say “no”.

Instagram: @jupri_stick

Libra, you would command the superpower of teleportation. But, you would only be able to do it from one room to the next. Sure, it doesn’t sound exciting at first, but who wouldn’t want a party trick that they can use to escape awkward situations? It’s an emergency escape button, of sorts.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Instagram: @maryanna_kat1

Scorpio, you are born under the sign of power. This means you’re gifted with all kinds of attributes that comes with power: foresight, intelligence, and freedom.

Instagram: @foodcoma_eats

You superpower would be the ability to eat anything. And we mean anything. With zero repercussions. Think about it: you could down a burger, a bucket of tacos, and finish off with a handful of empanadas, and still keep your svelte figure. And yes, you’d also become the friend that everyone would like to hate, but just can’t bring themselves to hate.

Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)

Instagram: @msvee_marie

Everyone knows you for your happy-go-lucky nature, Sagittarius. You’re enthusiastic and optimistic. To be honest, it makes you a pretty attractive person to be around.

Instagram: @ieshamasontx

Your superpower would be that you’re extremely lucky. Sure, Ryan Reynolds’ Deadpool didn’t count that as a superpower, but where would he have been without Domino at his side? That’s right. Dead. Minus the pool. Not that you’d have to take on saving the world with an antihero at your side. Sagittarius, with your superpower, you could easily win the lotto a few times and call it a day.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)

Instagram: @brotherandco.photography

Capricorn, you have a pretty serious, driven nature. You tend to hang out on the introverted side of life and can be a bit more reserved.

Instagram: @unelefante

Which is why you might not fully appreciate how fun your superpower is, at first. Your superpower would be the ability to inflate into a ball and bounce. It would be the ultimate de-stressing superpower. Plus, imagine how quickly you’d be able to go from one place to the next!

Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)

Instagram: @x95cm

If people were asked to describe you, Aquarius, they would use words like intelligent, friendly, and quirky. If you were to describe yourself, you’d probably use the same words. Yes, you’re self-aware.

Instagram: @fruits_food_

Your superpower matches your affinity for weirdness – you would have the ability to cry tears made from the flavor of your favorite drink. Yes, it’s very specific, but oh-so-delicious. Think about the possibilities! You could solve the world water crisis by learning how to cry on cue.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Instagram: @marianamoramx

Pisces, you are one sensitive soul. As much as you don’t like to admit it, you can be a little shy, too. It comes with having your artistic, creative sensibilities. You may get overwhelmed when you have to make big decisions.

Instagram: @lovedanielle_15

As a water sign, your superpower would be acidic sweat. Being endowed with acidic sweat would definitely be the start of your superhero, or supervillain career. Imagine being able to sweat your way through secured bank vaults, or jail walls! Although, maybe it would also mean the start of a whacky fashion career. After all, you’d probably need to come up with some special material that could withstand a workout sesh with you.

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.

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.
