Every zodiac sign has a dark side and a super lovable side, but somewhere in the middle there are the personality traits that are just straight-up cute, and the ones that are super annoying. Which sign acts like a huge drama queen every time they get sick? Which sign is adorably obsessed with cuddling? Which sign needs to quit complaining every once in awhile? Read on to check out the random habits of your sign that make people say “aww!” (and “ugh!”)… Keep reading »
Ready for your Astrology 101 lesson of the day? We’ve given you the scoop on moon signs, rising signs, and the elements. Now it’s time to talk about qualities. In Astrology each sign is attributed a certain “quality” (could that word be any more vague?), which refers to the different ways people interact and engage with their environments. Your quality — cardinal, mutable, or fixed — affects everything from how you tackle your to-do list to how you deal with change to how you approach your social life. Knowing what quality your sign falls under can help you better understand some of your tendencies in work, life, and relationships. There are 12 zodiac signs and 3 qualities, so it can also be fun to find out which signs share your quality (two fixed signs here!). You will often find that, for one reason or another, you have always been able to relate to people with a certain quality… Keep reading »
You know the people in your life who seem to have achieved inner peace and live in total alignment with their values and make you feel calm and inspired whenever you see them? Yeah, we like to think of those people as “evolved.” And you know the people who seem content to stew in their own resentments, fear, and anger, stirring up drama on the daily? Our generous word for those people is “unevolved.” Basically, we’re all trying (hopefully) to grow and evolve into our best selves, and some people are a bit farther along the path than others. We think people’s signs play a role in what that evolution looks like, and wanted to document each sign’s spectrum from best to worst. What does your sign look like at its most evolved? What kind of trouble does your sign get into when you refuse to evolve?
When you read this post, remember that no one exists completely on either end of the spectrum. It’s easy to be like, “Ugh, my ex-boyfriend was SUCH an unevolved Sagittarius” (lord knows he probably was), but it’s good to remember that very few people are totally unevolved or totally evolved — most of us are somewhere in the middle. Click on the gallery above to see where you fall on your sign’s spectrum!

When it comes to people-watching (and its astrological variation: sign spotting!), you really can’t beat the airport.

We’re constantly talking about astrology and asking random people what their signs are (we can’t help ourselves!), and one thing we hear all the time is “I don’t feel like a typical [insert sign here].” Obviously astrology is just one part of the personality puzzle, and tons of factors–upbringing, birth order, culture, life experiences, etc.–affect us. It’s pretty rare to identify 100% with every description of your zodiac sign, but we thought it might be helpful to break down some of the most common reasons people don’t feel like they match up with their sign.
