If Zodiac Signs Were "Parks and Recreation" Characters

I'm going to tell you which Parks and Rec character you're most like based on the arrangement of the planets at the time of your birth.

If Zodiac Signs Were "Parks and Recreation" Characters

There are two kinds of people in the world: people who are open about their fascination with their astrological sign and people who pretend they think it’s stupid but love to hear what small finger tattoo they should get based on their sign. For years, I was the latter. But after a while, it became clear to me that anyone who can’t resist clickbait articles with the title "Which 'Game of Thrones' Hottie Should You Marry Based On Your Sign" needed to just suck it up and stop pretending not to care. I understand, logically, that the stars do not dictate whether or not I’ll get a promotion, but it’s just so romantic to think that they could. Also, I realize that no two websites that claim to really understand the signs and have perfect explanations of all of them will ever agree on everything, so I just chose one and based everything on that. You’re going to love it. So if you’re the kind of person who pretends not to care, but clicked on this article anyway, I highly recommend converting. It makes things so much easier.

Aries (March 21st – April 19th): April Ludgate

A fire sign, symbolized by the Ram and ruled by Mars, a person who is an Aries focuses on the things that give them a thrill and are secretly very well suited to lead the way. You know what gives April a thrill?

Taurus (April 20th – May 20th): Shauna Malwae-Tweep

Ruled by Venus, all a Taurus wants is a happy and secure life and marriage. Sound like anyone we know?

Gemini (May 21st – June 20th): Donna Meagle

The twins—with an intense mental energy, a Gemini is always looking to get ahead of the crowd and to explore a little bit of, well, everything. Donna Meagle pretty much has that covered already, but she’s still going. She’s honestly got us all beat.

Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd): Ann Perkins

A little bit moody, Cancers really just want constant reassurance and love and to feel safe all around. While the Ann Perkins that dated Andy was always in control, the post-Andy Ann Perkins we know and love lived life a little more fluid (appropriate for this water sign), and needed a little extra help to get through the day.

Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd): Tom Haverford

Ruled by the hot-burning Sun, a Leo’s goal is simple: to be a star. If this isn’t Tom Haverford, no sign is.

Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd): Jerry Gergich

This sign is Jerry to a T. Virgos always strive to do the right thing, they are compassionate and caring, and they just want to love and be loved. Plus, the symbol is the Virgin. While we know that Jerry’s daughters had to come from somewhere, if we interpret it less literally, the Virgin is a symbol of purity. And there is no one purer than Gary Jerry Larry Terry Garry Gengurch Gergich.

Libra (September 23rd – October 22nd): Ron Swanson

A sign that values consistency, ease, and simplicity, there is no man simpler (in taste, not mental capacity) than Ron Swanson.

Scorpio (October 23rd – November 21st): Councilman Jeremy Jamm

Scorpios are ruled by Pluto, which isn’t even technically a planet any more (RIP), and symbolized by the Scorpion, which not only seems appropriate to those of us who understand Councilman Jamm, but which would probably please Jamm greatly. They’re also intent on triumph, which I assume applies both to physical combat and battles for a private bathroom.

Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st): Leslie Knope

A fire symbol ruled by Jupiter, king amongst the planets, a Sagittarius is looking to live the good life and make a difference in this world. If you think there is someone who is more fiery in these ways than Leslie Knope, please sit down. You’re wrong.

Capricorn (December 22nd – January 19th): Andy Dwyer

All of the other signs have such cool symbols: the twins, the scale, the virgin, the lion. Then there’s Capricorn, symbolized by a goat. But who better to represent Capricorns, a group of people who just want to admired and loved, who want someone to feel proud, and who have a powerful resilient energy, than Andy Dwyer?

Aquarius (January 20th – February 18th): Chris Traeger

An Aquarius loves to be unique and original. They have a high level of energy, and they’re always looking to figure out life’s mysteries. There is literally no Parks and Recreation character more unique, curious, and energetic than Chris Traeger.

Pisces (February 19th – March 20th): Jean Ralphio Saperstein

Always looking to live their dreams and turn fantasy into reality, a Pisces has erratic energy levels and hates to feel alone. Also, the Pisces’ stone is the bloodstone, which is considered to be the most beautiful of the Jaspers. Its energy is pure like blood and holds vitality, strength, passion, and courage. If you saw my earlier article regarding why Jean Ralphio is the best, you’ll know why I believe this fits him so well. There's not a really great gif for this, but there are 40 of them here if you're curious!

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded. I want to encourage everyone to look at something with an unbiased and unfazed point of view. I oftentimes struggle with this myself.
