From overeaters to over-thinkers, these are things you’re addicted to based on your zodiac sign.
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 18)
Aquarians are addicted to technology. They want the best phone, computer, gaming system, etcetera that they can get their hands on. They’re always on the lookout for the newest model of their favorite things. So, it shouldn’t be too surprising that people with this sign are often considered “nerds.” They like playing video games, reading science articles, and attending conventions. They like to be able to escape the real world, and technology is one of the easiest and most exciting ways to do that. Since they are so interested in the fantasy worlds of video games, they’re also free-thinking. However, their need for technology could cost a pretty penny if they don’t watch themselves.
Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)
Pisces is the one type that can be addicted to anything. It really just depends on how they’re feeling. If someone with this sign is feeling a bit lazy, then they can sleep all day. They’ll wake up for dinner and pass out again right after. If a Pisces is in the mood to snack, then they can put down an entire party-sized bag of Lays without any problem. If they like a new Netflix show, then they’ll finish the series in a single day! The issue with Pisces is that they can over-indulge in just about everything. But, this can be very beneficial at times. For instance, they will work extremely hard for their hobbies and passions.
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
Aries are addicted to taking risks and living life to the fullest. Have you ever wanted to go skydiving, cliff-jumping, or drag racing? If Aries is your sign, and you answered ‘yes’ to all of these things, then that’s completely normal for you.
People with this sign get a rush from doing exciting things. They’re roller-coaster lovers, motorcycle riders, and deep-sea divers. If you’re an Aries, then there’s a good chance that your dopamine-inhibiting receptors are scarce. Therefore, your brain has tons of dopamine running through it. For those of you who don’t know, dopamine is a neurotransmitter that contributes to our feelings of satisfaction and pleasure. So, when we get a wave of it, we feel great. That’s why Aries try to do things that will give them that extra rush. But, doing dangerous and risky things isn’t the only way to raise dopamine levels. These adrenaline junkies are also often addicted to caffeine. I’m sure most of the Aries out there can relate to this. You probably need your morning Starbucks, energy drink, or black tea to really feel awake. The caffeine in these beverages increases your dopamine, giving you the excitement, wakefulness, and surge that you crave. Thus, people with this sign are coffee-drinking, adventure-seeking, exciting folks to be around.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
Although feeling satisfied for an Aries involves risky business, extreme measures and adventure aren’t necessary for a Taurus to be perfectly content. People with this sign are addicted to things that make them feel good, but, they don’t crave an adrenaline rush. What they want are things that appeal to their senses. For instance, a Taurus could be much more likely to hit up McDonald’s on a daily basis than other signs. They love food because of it… obviously… appeals to their sense of taste. A delicious snack or meal gives you a pleasurable sensation, and many foods give you that dopamine rush that Aries seek out as well.
Some of the foods that do this are cheese, unprocessed meats like turkey, chicken and beef, bananas, nuts, and dark chocolate. But, a Taurus will search for physical satisfaction in more than just tasty treats. They also like things that appeal to their other senses. For example, getting a massage is something people with this sign are much more likely to do than those with other signs.
Taurus are also more inclined to purchase things like pricey Yankee candles because they smell so good. They might even invest in a good sound system like Bose because they’re more attuned the clarity of their music.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
If you’re a Gemini, then you might already know this. But, people with this sign are addicted to social media. Geminis are usually members of every social media outlet: Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Reddit, the list goes on and on. But, why are Geminis addicted to being on these sites and apps? It’s because they crave interaction. They’re most likely drawn to the internet because it’s the easiest way to communicate with people nowadays. Geminis enjoy giving their thoughts and opinions on certain matters as well. I’m sure we’ve all seen the people who comment on nearly every Facebook article with strong views, and they continually reply to everyone else who responds. Well, chances are that these people are Geminis. They want the world to know what they think about various topics, and they enjoy debating them too.
People with this sign also simply have fun looking at other people’s profiles and seeing what they’re all about. Since they’re so linked to social media, Geminis are often involved in dating websites as well. They will thoroughly research a person they meet on Tinder before they go out with them; so, it might be difficult acting like they know nothing about the person while they’re on their first date. But, this isn’t a bad thing. The only time when a Gemini’s social media habits interfere with their lives negatively is when they’re staring at their phone for hours on end when it’s time to go to sleep. The blue light of technology is known for keeping people awake. Watch out for this if you’re a Gemini, and turn your phone off at a reasonable hour.
Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 22)
If you’re a Cancer, then you are romantic, sensitive, and emotional. Plus, you’re very loyal, sometimes overly so. Every sign has their vice, and for Cancers, it’s people. Their feelings are very significant to them. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but, it can be in certain circumstances. Because of these characteristics, it’s easy for a Cancer to become attached to people that aren’t good for them. This could be regarding friends or their romantic relationships. It’s difficult for them to give up on a connection because the other person has a negative impact on them. The situation would have to be pretty severe for them to let someone go. This especially applies to their intimate partners.
Cancers will do everything within their power to keep things together, even if their significant other doesn’t care about very much about them. However, in a relationship that is positive for them and their partners, Cancers thrive and will be the best significant others anyone could ask for.
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 22)
A few well-known Leos are Jennifer Lopez, Madonna, and Barack Obama. One thing that the three of these people have in common is that they’re the center of attention when they walk into a room. Leos are obsessed with attention. They often seek out careers that will fulfill this need as well. So, if you’ve always wanted to be on stage, singing, acting, etcetera, then chances are that you’re a Leo. In fact, people with this sign crave the limelight so much that they will often create situations where all eyes are on them. The need for attention can be a good thing. It worked out well for the three people we mentioned previously.
Leos aren’t afraid to put themselves out there, be social, and stand out from the crowd. This is extremely beneficial when it comes to doing things that other people can’t stand, like public speaking. However, there are downfalls to this addiction to consider.
Leos will make unnecessary drama sometimes so that others will pay attention to them. They can also be shopaholics because they want to be noticed for their expensive clothes or other materialistic items. This means that people with this sign can be a bit egotistical at times. But, generally speaking, people are naturally attracted to Leos because their personalities are bold and captivating.
Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22)
Just like Leos, Virgos are attention-seekers too. But, they don’t want people to notice them for their good-looks or boisterous personalities; they want to be noticed for their knowledge.
Virgos are addicted to being intelligent. They want to be the smartest person in any room, and how are they going to determine their wisdom without showing off their skills? Virgo’s love competitions that involve smarts. They’ll show up for trivia nights, spelling bees, or anything else that requires brainpower and puts them in the spotlight.
Virgos are usually bookworms, researchers, Jeopardy-watchers, etcetera, and they’ll do whatever they can to stock up on more knowledge.
They are also quick learners with the ability to absorb information right away. They strive for perfection in everything they do, which can have its downsides. They might stress over minor things because they crave excellence.
Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
Libras are the least likely of any sign to have a specific addiction. What they are most focused on is staying balanced emotionally and physically. In some ways, they’re very fond of their phones because it allows them to maintain inner harmony. If they want to associate with other people, then they can easily take out their phones and text their friends, check their social media accounts, or talk to their family members. But, they can also use the device more sneakily to avoid interaction with other people in public places.
Since their main focus is keeping themselves even-keel, they are attracted to things or people that help them remain that way. Because of this, they also try to associate with people that complete them and make them feel whole. Regarding romantic relationships, they’re always in search for their other half.
Libras need their partners to keep things running smoothly, just like they keep things that way within themselves. Perhaps the main struggle for a Libra is finding a person that they consider their “soulmate.” They could be so concentrated on balance that they let relationships fall by the wayside.
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
Scorpios are very passionate people regarding all things physical, mental, and emotional. So, one of the things that Scorpios can be addicted to is intimacy. They love getting up close and personal with their partners as much as they can. There’s nothing wrong with that. However, if the other person doesn’t quite have the same drive, then it could become an issue.
Scorpios are focused on more than just the physical aspects though. They love anything that gets their juices flowing. So, that could include sports or other types of competition.
Scorpios love the energy that comes with being competitive. This can be a really good thing… I mean, a little friendly contest never hurt anyone.
Another thing that Scorpios are addicted to is reality television. They adore shows that they can relate to because they can apply it to their passions and emotions. When something non-fiction is happening on the screen, it makes it that much more exciting!
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
Sagittarius are passionate as well but not as much about competitiveness and romance and more about experiencing new things. They’re addicted to the unknown and changing up their normal routines. One of the main goals of somebody with this sign is to travel. They’d much rather spend the money they have on going to unfamiliar places than buying material items or purchasing a home. I mean, why buy a house when you don’t plan on staying in the same place for very long?
Sagittarius will find cheap means of going to new countries, like staying in hostels or finding inexpensive food so they can travel more often. However, they don’t only enjoy traveling. They find nearly all different experiences exciting. Sagittarius are very adventurous regarding new foods, meeting new people, or trying new activities. They’ll be down for spontaneous trips, parties, concerts, etcetera. As long as their world keeps changing and evolving, Sagittarius are happy.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
Capricorns are basically the opposite of Sagittarius. People with this sign are addicted to work. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, at least not all the time. Capricorns are extremely focused on being successful. They put a lot of hours into their careers. They will often work overtime, not take time off, and skip out on vacations. Because a Capricorn’s main goal is to be prosperous in whatever they do, they are also very responsible. They will always get things done on time, and their work will be quality. Do you remember the kids in school that would always do the extra homework, answer the bonus questions on tests, ask the teacher to clarify things, etcetera? Those people, who many consider “over-achievers,” were probably Capricorns. But, this isn’t always a good thing. Working too hard and stressing out over something when it’s not perfect can take a toll on one’s body and mind.
