12 Things You'll Only Understand If You're Obsessed With Astrology

12 Things You'll Only Understand If You're Obsessed With Astrology

For all of you who love astrology.


For all of you who love astrology, you know there are things only people who TRULY love astrology will understand.

1. You ask everyone their birthday.

In fact, it's difficult to meet someone new without somehow incorporating the question of their birth date. It's the easiest way to assess their personality. It should honestly be a basic question in all conversations.

2. But not before you try to guess their sign in your head.

You talk to them for a few minutes, access their qualities and their traits, and try to guess their sign before finally asking. Are they quirky, compassionate and a little self-interested? You've got yourself an Aquarius. Are they talkative, dramatic and passionate? That's a Leo. And don't even get started on how exciting it is to guess right.

3. All your friends turn to you for star-related guidance.

When your friend starts talking to a new man or woman, they ask you to assess their compatibility. If your friends are feeling a little off, they ask you what planet is messing everything up. When they just simply want to know what kind of week they're going to have, they know exactly who to turn to.

4. You know what a moon sign is!

You know what a moon sign is and what it influences. You also know what a rising sign is and what that influences. You basically know what all the planets do and how they affect the personality.

5. You feel nervous signing contracts during a Mars retrograde.

The absolute worst time to make a deal is when Mars is retrograding, so naturally, you try and avoid any legal documentation those 12 days. You also avoid buying technology and making online purchases. Spending this past Christmas season planning your shopping around a Mars retrograde was a nightmare, to say the least.

6. People’s little quirks are easier to handle once you know their sign.

Someone avoids commitment and responsibility by running away to a new city for the weekend (or forever)? That's just a Sagittarius. Someone is offering their unsolicited, honest advice and are less than delicate when presenting their opinion? That's just an Aries. Someone needs to get input from all their friends, family and literally anyone in a five-mile radius before deciding what cereal to eat for breakfast that morning? That's just a Libra.

7. You date people with the same sign.

It's usually not intentionally, but hey, nothing wrong with seeking a certain trait you like. Like yes, Cancers can be way too passive aggressive and self-centered but they're the ideal romantics that will shower you with constant love and affection, and that's just not something you can get from a Gemini or Virgo if that's what you're looking for.

8. Most of your media consumption is astrology-related.

You have multiple apps on your phone (Checking DailyHoroscopes at midnight before bed, telling your friends to add you on CoStar). You follow astrology accounts on Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat. You follow and keep up with certain astrologers. You even know which days to check for a weekly horoscope. (AstroPoets posts on Twitter on Sunday night, Cosmo posts on Snapchat Monday morning).

9. You have A LOT of horoscope paraphernalia.

Mugs, t-shirts, rings, necklaces, tapestries, candles, journals, calendars- you name it. You could be a brand ambassador for the stars. Bonus points if you have an astrology tattoo.

10. Your friends send you and tag you in all of the astrology memes.

If any of your friends see any post relating to astrology, they immediately send it to you. And it doesn't matter how many times you're sent the same horoscope joke, you laugh every time. (And you're pretty delighted to be the designated astro friend).

11. You’ve occasionally considered dropping out and becoming a professional astrologe.

Listen, college can get hard. Some girls joke about becoming strippers; you joke about becoming a freelance astrologer. You could live in a humble cottage next to the sea. You could write magazine columns about Pluto transitioning into Capricorn and what it means for your career in the next few months. You could make house calls for those trying to figure out how to fix the communication when they're a Mercury Scorpio and their partner is a Moon Pisces. And you never have to worry about taking a statistics test again.

12. You don’t care what the haters say!

You've heard all of the criticisms. You've been teased, mocked and flat-out called stupid. You've heard it all. But you don't care. If the moon can influence the ocean, give one good reason why it can't influence human beings too? Either way, astrology is a fun hobby and you don't care what the haters say. They just lack the insight, intuition and imagination to wrap their head around the concept. That, or they're just a Capricorn.

My Top 10 Youtubers To Watch When You're Bored!

If you need something to do, check out these YouTube channels!

Youtube: the best place to go when you're laying in bed bored.

I've been watching Youtube for as long as I could remember. I would start at a Jonas Brothers video and end up watching tornado chasers. I could never tell you how I got there, but with Youtube, it's possible.

I spend a lot of time watching videos and catching up on the lives of some of my favorites. I watch make-up and hair tutorials on a daily basis and if I have some time, I'll watch a couple of Vlogs. I'll also watch videos when I need a good laugh.

So if you are bored, here are my top 10 favorite Youtubers to watch.

10. Alphie Deyes : "Pointless Blog"

Alfie is a British Youtuber. Along with his Vlogs, Alfie has a gaming channel and a main channel where he posts collabs with other Youtubers. I usually just watch his Vlogs, but I've seen a few of his other videos and they are definitely worth the watch!

Here are his three channels!




9. Zoe Sugg: "Zoella"

Zoe is also a British beauty and fashion Youtuber. She is also a Vlogger and has two channels. She is most known for her make-up tutorials. Zoe is also the author of the "Girl Online" series. 

Here are her channels!



8. Kian and JC

Both boys have main channels, but I mostly watch their collab channel. They post videos of themselves doing challenges for the most part. The other part is usually them just talking to the camera. They are hilarious and can make me laugh any day.

Here is their channel!


7. Tess Christine

I just recently started watching Tess, but her videos are mostly hair and make-up tutorials and also fashion videos. She occasionally posts travel vlogs as well.

Here is her channel!


6. Tyler Oakley

Known for his Q and "Slays," Tyler Oakley has become one of the biggest Youtube stars. He also does a lot of collabs with other Youtubers and they are always funny.

(It would not let me link his channel, but if you search "Tyler Oakley" all of his videos will come up)

5. David Dobrik

David is a Vlogger. His videos always include his friends and the weird scenarios they get into. Puns and skits are his go to thing. He got his start on Vine and now he is taking over the vlog world!

Here is his channel!


4. Shane Dawson

I don't even know how to explain Shane Dawson's videos. He is one of the most random Youtubers that I've ever watched. He was one of the first Youtubers I ever started watching. He is really big on conspiracy theories now.

Here is his channel!


3. Settle Down Kids or SDK

SDK is absolutely, hands down, my favorite group on Youtube. They post challenges and sometimes they are so random they don't even make sense. I actually had the chance to meet all of them and they were so nice which makes it so much better!

Here is their channel!


2. Any Buzzfeed Channel

If anyone tells you that they don't watch Buzzfeed, they are lying. Over the past year or so, Buzzfeed has taken over the Internet. I can sit for hours and just watch Buzzfeed. They have a couple of channels, but I'll link their main one!

Here it is!


1. Joe Santagato

I've been watching Joe for a couple of years now. He used to be like my little secret, but now almost everyone knows who he is. Joe's videos are hilarious and could definitely make anyone's day! He also has a second channel where he posts Vlog-like videos.

Here is his channel!


(It wouldn't let me link his second channel)

There are so many more Youtube channels that I could list but that would probably take forever! I hope you get a chance to check out any of these channels!

Yes, I Love Science And Yes, I Love To Write

It is possible to like both!


I feel like there's this unspoken rule in society that says that if you love science, you're not good at or you don't like writing and vice versa. A lot of the people I have met seem to be like that.

With this being said, I feel like I am the exception to the rule. I love science, I am sort of good at science, and I love writing. People who love science tend to be more analytical and people who love writing tend to be more creative. Well, I'm both analytical and creative.

It's possible to be that way. If life has taught me anything over these past few years, it's that anything is possible. I've gotten A's in both science and English courses. That's not me bragging about my grades because trust me they are nothing to brag about, but it's me showing how 2 separate parts of my brain can be strong.

For me, I fell in love with writing through journaling. It's more of a nonfiction writing style, and it's because I had thoughts that needed to leave my brain at 2 am one morning. I didn't want to send any of my friends a long text message expressing my feelings, so I found a notebook and started writing to my future self. Sure enough, it was therapeutic for me and I fell in love with writing as I journaled more.

Part of the reason why I love writing is because it gives me a place to channel my millions of thoughts onto paper. I'm constantly analyzing and sometimes overthinking things. Basically, since I am over-analytical about a lot of things, writing is my outlet to get these thoughts out of my brain.

Over the course of time, I have found this unspoken and secret beauty to the skill of writing. By far it is one of the most important skills anyone could have, and it's a skill that will always be needed because you need writing to communicate through text messaging, emails, proposals, and the list goes on. I love writing for this very reason.

More so, I love science too. Science is my first passion and with wanting to be a high school teacher, I hope to get young students to love science too. It is one of the coolest things on this planet.

To understand how the world works through science is absolutely mind-blowing. If you take or have taken physics, you know that there is an equation for everything like bouncing a ball while walking. It is the coolest thing in the world.

In middle school, we see a volcano diorama and we see how volcanoes sort of work. That's science, most of us are amazed by it. In college, science is really difficult and tedious, but it's fun. It's fun being challenged and being forced to analyze things in new ways.

Over the winter session, I took physics and thank goodness for my professor because he is a true gem of a person, but he made physics apply to the real world. It's the study of the real world and how things work and interact. It's all math and that's the hard part, but it was fun to see how math actually applies to the real world.

Analyzing and understanding the world through a scientific lens is so cool to me. It's not to everyone, and I respect that, but it's cool to know why clouds form and why certain rocks are lighter than others. It's cool to know why when I dribble a basketball even when I am running, it still comes back to my hands.

Point is, there is science behind everything, and I love learning that. I love analyzing it, just as much as I love writing.

Thus, it is possible to love writing and science. It's not common, but both are so cool and imperative to society in their own ways.
