Here’s The Best Exercise For Your Body Type Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Getting into shape is about as easy as resisting a free box of Krispy Kreme donuts. Yeah, it’s really, really, hard. And, it’s even harder when you feel like there’s no right sport out there for you.

Chances are, you just need to find the right kind of workout: one that’ll get your heart pumping, the sweat pouring, and leave you looking forward to next time! We’ve consulted your zodiac, and it turns out that there are still some unconventional exercises out there for you to try.

Read on to find out what you’ll be doing, next!

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Instagram: @nicolas.torres.z

If you’re an Aries, you need to do something that will really set your inner flame alight. You thrive on competition and adventure. As far as you’re concerned, when it comes to exercise, if there’s no thrill in it, why bother with it in the first place?

Instagram: @geovannikihonbjj

Contact sports, like martial arts, are great for someone like you – from karate, to taekwondo, to boxing and mixed martial arts, you’ve got plenty of options to choose from. With your fire-y attitude, Aries, you’ll be fighting like Jackie Chan in no time.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Instagram: @frazpoz

Taurus, you’re known for your stamina, and endurance. Some might call it bull-headedness, but once you’ve committed to something, you’ve got the dedication to see it through. Being an earth sign, you’re at your peak when you exercise outside.

Instagram: @kelshizel

Have you ever thought about playing Quidditch? Yes, it’s the same sport from Harry Potter. Quidditch for muggles is like a mix of football, dodgeball, and tag, all played on the one field, while the players keep a broom between their legs. It’s high time you gave it a try, Taurus, and embraced your inner witch.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Instagram: @sunjournal

Your idea of exercise involves moving your mouth, Gemini. For you, exercise works best when you can socialise with everyone around you. Of course, it’s even more motivating when you can wrangle a buddy into coming with you, so you can work up a sweat together.

Instagram: @m.pritchard.mono

That is why wife-carrying is perfect exercise for you, Gemini. It’s not complicated; it’s a sport that is exactly what it says on the tin. And, let’s face it, half of the battle is mental, with this one. It’s about being able to support your other half when you compete together. Gemini, with your gift of the gab, you’ll be in the perfect position to give your partner in crime that bolster they need to cross the finish line.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Instagram: @spiritualrenegade

Cancer, we know that you like to get in touch with your feelings, no matter what you do. And, your exercise routine is no exception. For you, exercise is really about experiencing the endorphin high that a good workout brings.

Instagram: @archbuzzer

Let’s face it, Cancer, the best way for you to burn those calories is to get hot and sweaty with another gorgeous soul in bed. A solid bonk ticks all the boxes for you. Exercise? Tick. Intimacy? Tick. Bragging rights over your newfound sex life? That’s a bonus.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Instagram: @starlight_ballroomdance

Exercise for a Leo isn’t just about getting fit – it’s about the performance of it all. You’re confident, courageous, and you like showing that off. You’re all about being at the centre of attention, and that doesn’t change when you exercise. 

Instagram: @dance_kangoo_jumps

Dancing fits you and your style, Leo. The more energetic, the better. For you, this could be as simple as bounding around the house, shaking it all out. Or, getting some structure into your routine and taking classes. The point is, you’ve got the energy and vivaciousness needed for showing off some serious moves.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Instagram: @gizlibahcelerimiz

Virgo, you’re one organised soul. Exercise, for you, is about making sure it fits into your routine. If you were really honest, you don’t mind doing the same thing, day in, day out – as long as it gives you the results you’re looking for. After all, you’re a perfectionist at heart.

Instagram: @blackmenwithgardens

As an earth sign, you’re pretty comfortable gardening. And, don’t get us wrong, we’re not just talking about just pulling out weeds. Hauling big plants, and shovelling mountains of dirt really gets you breaking a sweat! It also gets a routine going, since you’ll have to give your green babies attention every day. And, you’ll be seeing visible results in no time – both in your body, and in your rejuvenated garden.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Instagram: @zestylife.ca

As the sign of the scales, you excel at balancing activities, Libra. You’ve got a sense of poise that some people can only dream of. You’re not too fussed over the competitive aspect to some sports, so you’re usually happy just working up a sweat.

Instagram: @extreme__mtb

Libra, mountain biking is your style. More often than not, you’ll stay on the bike when other people would fall off. And, as an air sign, you’ll thrive on the fresh mountain air when you go biking.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Instagram: @moinyoungor.k

Scorpio, your ideal exercise routine incorporates some intensity. You like to get in touch with your competitive side when you’re getting sweaty. But, let’s face it, you’re really in your element when you embrace your more seductive side.

Instagram: @angelina.polerina

Pole dancing incorporates everything you’re looking for in a workout, Scorpio. While most pole dancers make the art look easy, it’s anything but. You’ll start doing pole dancing for sexiness of it all, but stay to prove yourself in the championships.

Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)

Instagram: @wearevertigobelfast

Cheerful and optimistic are two words that best describe you, Sagittarius. And, part of maintaining that upbeat outlook is having a workout that makes you happy. Since you’re a free spirit with a lot of energy, you need an exercise routine that reflects that.

Instagram: @craigiehighpe

The perfect way to work up a sweat for a Sagittarius is to go trampolining. Let’s face it, it’s hard to not feel happy after bounding your way through an exercise session.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)

Instagram: @beingabiker

As an earth sign, Capricorn, you thrive on competitiveness in your exercise routine. You’ve got the ability to endure, so for your workouts, you need something to make you break a sweat, and then continue to break a sweat. Your determination to succeed means that you’ll never let a hard session get the best of you.

Instagram: @rollerballthailand

Have you ever tried zorbing, Capricorn? Some would describe it as an extreme sport – after all, it involves getting inside a gigantic plastic ball, and rolling your way to the finish line. It takes considerable strength to control where you want to go, and we know that you’ll be up for the challenge.

Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)

Instagram: @theminionfit

Aquarius, being the intellectual you are, you thrive most when your exercise routine engages both your body, and your brain. Your love of technology definitely influences your workouts. Variety is what keeps you engaged when you exercise – routines can kill your enthusiasm for getting fit. 

Instagram: @life_of_fee

The internet is your best friend when it comes to putting together an exercise program for you, Aquarius. We know that one day you’ll be scouring an app to get in touch with your inner yogi, and the next you’ll be firing up Youtube for a solid HIIT session.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Instagram: @aquajogclub

For Pisces, you need a workout that meshes with your sensitive personality. Since you’re drawn to taking care of the people around you, it means that you need to let off some steam more regularly than most. You benefit from the stress-relief exercise can give you when you’ve had a good session. 

Instagram: @runnersar

Being the sign of the fish, anything involving water is good exercise for a Pisces. Have you ever tried aquajogging? It says it all in the title – and it’s even popular enough to have its own world championships every year. Maybe we’ll see you there, one day!

19 Red Lipsticks To Wear That’ll Match Your Red Wine This Holiday

With the holidays right around the corner, it’s time to bust out our sparkly dresses, velvet pumps, and festive-colored makeup. Of course, no fall or winter ensemble would be complete without some bomb red lipstick. And since Latinas can pull off this shade like no other, what better time to stock up on some cult-faves and brand new ones? Whether it’s a blue-based red, cool-toned one, or spicy burgundy, this is the perfect season to rock a good red lipstick.

To make shopping a little easier, we found over 15 lipsticks for you to add to cart. From classics like MAC’s Ruby Woo, to new faves like Fenty Beauty’s Stunna Lip, there’s a shade for everyone. Best of all? We found a bunch of drugstore options, because you don’t have to break the bank to look good.

Vive Cosmetics makes the lushest liquid lipsticks on the market, and they can even withstand the greasiest tacos. The brand’s liquid lip in Amor Eterno is extra special, not only because it’s a bomb red, but because you’ll look as fly as El Divo himself. Yes, we’re talking about the late Juan Gabriel.

Founded by cosmetics historian and artist Gabriela Hernandez, Besame’s lipsticks are truly one-of-a-kind. In fact, each lipstick is an exact replica of popular shades from the past. In particular, the Red Velvet lipstick (which a 1946 color) is one of the few shades that have a neutral undertone, making it perfect for everyone.

If there’s one thing this Latina-owned brand knows how to do, it makes red lipstick. Of all its crayon sticks, the shade Fresa (so cheeky!) is a head-turner. It’s a spicy, deep red that will match your fresa attitude—we say this in the best way, of course.

5. Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Beso ($22)

There’s a multitude of reasons to love Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Starting with the fact that she became the youngest woman in Congress, and that she’s always looking out for her fellow peeps. Case in point: After receiving a bunch of inquiries about what striking red lipstick she was wearing during her debate with Joe Crowley (back in July), she kept it 100 and revealed she was wearing Stila’s liquid lipstick in Beso. If it’s good enough for her, it’s good enough for us.

Give your lips some high-shine with this rich red. It’s a creamy, no-fuss lipstick that easily glides onto your lips, and the chic gold packaging will look gorgeous on your vanity.

Stun on them haters when you wear this classic cherry red. The long-wearing formula has a matte finish but it will feel creamy on the lips, so they won’t feel dry after all-day wear. It’s seriously the best of both worlds.

Bite Beauty makes lipsticks good enough to eat, and we wouldn’t expect anything less considering its name. Instead of rocking a dark red in the fall and winter, switch it up with the brand’s Saffron Fire shade. A bright red-orange, this lipstick will add a pop of color (literally) to your makeup.

14. Maybelline Superstay Liquid Lipstick in Ground-Breaker ($7.99)

The shade Ground-Breaker is a deeper red than most on this list, but it’s a total stunner. The liquid lipstick’s formula is also hard to beat. It will literally last through dinner, drinks, and then some. Don’t believe us? One customer reviewed the product, writing, “The colors are everything and I wear it all day while eating and drinking… sometimes kissing.” Mic drop.

15. Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips Lipstick in Carina’s Love ($34)

Charlotte Tilbury’s products are definitely a splurge, but they’re worth every penny. And the matte lipstick in Carina’s Love is no exception.

Whoopi Goldberg Sort Of Said Charo Was Dead And People On Social Media Went Nuts

Spanish-born flamenco guitarist Charo has been captivating the world with her brilliant skills on the guitar and quirky persona for decades. For those of us in the Latinx community, however, she has long stood as an icon we hold dear and even as our own. The entertainer — born María del Rosario Pilar Martínez Molina Baeza — is more than an act of yesteryear, but rather a representation of what it means to be a woman that keeps up with the hustle. From appearing on countless of talk shows, to acting on the big and small screen, Charo’s career is an endless inspiration to ambitious Spanish speakers and Latinas alike, which is why when confusion about whether she was alive or dead sent many Latinas on Twitter into a massive search online that just about broke the internet.

That is all to say that despite years of making appearances on talk and variety shows, Charo’s most recent mention on The View sparked a particular roller coaster of emotion.

During last Friday’s episode of “The View,” Whoopi Goldberg mentioned Charo in a way that sent Twitter into a frenzy.

theview/ Instagram, officialcharo / Instagram

In a moment meant to recognize the deaths of influential celebrities and artists in entertainment that had passed away that week, “The View” host Whoopie Goldberg mentioned the death of actress Kim Porter and screenwriter William Goldman. She also mentioned guitar virtuoso Roy Clark who passed away on Nov. 15. It’s important to note, that at the top of the segment, Goldberg said she was mentioning three people of note, so the conversation would have normally ended there but instead, she went onto mention Charo. “She was known for being sort of a crazy blonde who was a guitar virtuoso,” Goldberg said. “That was what she was known for.”

It didn’t take long for viewers to quickly pick up on the host’s mention of Charo in the past tense.

Cue everyone Googling the life out of Charo’s name.

Wikipedia HQ must have been on fire trying to confirm this.

Like if Wikipedia doesn’t say Charo is dead, then it cannot be true. Can it?

People on social media quickly realized that Charo was very much alive, even though Whoopie oddly brought up her name.

Seems like Whoopi must have been on a Charo Spotify kick of some sort before the show and just wanted to bring her up?

But seriously, careful of those tenses girl.

We also Googled “Charo and Roy Clark” just to see why Whoopi would link these two guitar players and the only thing we could find was a picture of the two together at some party. Clark may have been a writer of one of Charo’s signature songs??

Fortunately Charo herself confirmed for the world she was alive and well.

Which TBH is a big relief since we’re still crossing our fingers hoping she’ll make another “Jane The Virgin” appearance this season.

And BTW not only is she alive, but she’s still doing the Cuchi Cuchi dance!

Because who could ever replace this woman?!

Check out the moment Whoopi suggested Charo was dead below.
