As we continue to seek comfort in the stars, astrology remains essential among those who believe the alignment of the planets can influence our psychologies or the events in our lives.
Studies show that millennials are most likely to obsessively look at their horoscopes to understand the various aspects of their personalities as well as others. According to a study, 58 percent of 18 to 24-year-old Americans believe astrology is scientific and the skepticism of astrology is decreasing.
A great conversation starter, asking “what’s your sign?” can lead to discussions about our best and worst characteristics, or our romantic compatibility with other signs. There are few things more addictive than reading a horoscope that is spot-on. But aside from astrology, what else can’t you get enough of? Let’s find out…
1. Aries (March 21- April 19): Coffee\Tea
Arieses have two modes: beast mode or not mode at all. The impulsive Aries needs coffee to keep them going because as soon as the laziness kicks in, there’s no going back. If you’re a former coffee addict who’s given up their ways, then tea is probably your new life support.
2. Taurus (April 20- May 20): Food
The way to a Taurus’ heart is food. Although Tauruses are among the most stable of the zodiac signs and don’t develop many addictions, food is their vice. One of the most genuine and authentic of the signs, these foodies tend to attach their feelings to their food.
3. Gemini (May 21- June 20): Social Media
When Geminis want to avoid their feelings, they turn to social media. Social media allows them to get lost in the opinions and lives of others, whether on Twitter or Instagram. Social media works within the complexities of a Gemini’s personality: the desire to do many things without diving too deep into any of them.
4. Cancer (June 21- July 22): Romance
Cancers are sensitive, loyal and ultimately emotional creatures who cling to positive emotions and do everything they can to avoid the negative ones. Being a water sign, Cancers tend to absorb things very deeply, so whether it’s a romantic gesture or even just a rom-com, Cancers can’t seem to get enough.
5. Leo (July 23 – August 22): Shopping
Because vanity is common among Leos they tend to be a materialistic sign. Leos are attracted to excess (whether materialistic or in other aspects of their lives), so once given a credit card they won’t be able to resist splurging on themselves.
6. Virgo (August 23- September 22): Toxic Relationships
Virgos tend to be drawn to toxic relationships because they struggle with expressing their emotions. Virgos actually have one of the biggest hearts among the signs but tend to easily fall prey to relationships that destroy them emotionally because they tend to suppress this side of themselves.
7. Libra (September 23 – October 22): Love
Libra, symbolized by the scales of justice, is the sign of fairness and equality. Many Libras become attached to the idea of finding someone else to complete them or balance them out, and can easily become addicted to the idea of love.
8. Scorpio (October 23- November 21): Reality Television
If you’re a Scorpio you probably watch too much TV. But TV shows that mimic reality, such as The Bachelor or Big Brother, are your weakness. Because Scorpios love passion and competition, over-the-top reality shows are their happy place.
9. Sagittarius (November 22- December 21): Traveling
Sags are known for their love for exploring, going to new places and experiencing new things. They’re always up for spontaneous plans and long road trips. With their adventurous nature, it’s no surprise travel is their addiction.
10. Capricorn (December 22- January 19): Working
Capricorns are work-addicts. Natural hard workers, Capricorns put success on a pedestal and are always striving to out-do themselves. They made great leaders because they’re responsible and disciplined, but they also don’t know when to take a break.
11. Aquarius (January 20- February 18): Books/ Video Games
In a technology-driven world, being able to enjoy a good book isn’t a bad thing. Aquarius tend to be intellectual, easy-going and free-thinkers who love getting lost in a fantasy world; their problem lies in getting back out. If reading was never your thing, you’re probably a video game junkie.
12. Pisces (February 19- March 20): Sleeping
Pisces are gentle and sensitive at heart who tend to stress emotionally. For Pisces, there’s no better way to escape their daily emotions than a good night of sleep or a power nap.
