What Your Zodiac Sign Says About Your Social Media Habits

by Ashley Fern

Do you get really pissed whenever you see people post selfies? Or when they air yet another extravagant purchase they made? Is it their fault or is it because of their zodiac sign?

The personality and characteristics people exhibit on a daily basis say a lot about their social media game — and so do their horoscopes.

You may not realize the impact this has on social media, but today I'm here to enlighten you. Read on to see if your social media behavior is reflective of your zodiac sign.

Aries (March 20 – April 19)

Aries tend to be on the more self-centered side of the zodiac spectrum, so you know they're the ones Photoshopping and thinning out their pictures. Before a friend can even post a photo of them, they must see it and alter it before it airs to the public.

Reviewing tags on Facebook is not only a practice, it's a religion.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

People of the Taurus sign are the type to post new luxury items on their social media daily because they tend to be a little materialistic. They're not exactly "Rich Kids of Instagram" (although, some of them are), but they definitely like to flaunt the things they've earned.

They also have the tendency to follow the leader, so you know they are the ones posting that picture  — you know, the one we've already seen 100 times. As they're also sensitive, they're the type to erase any negative feedback a post receives.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

It doesn't matter if people who fall under the Gemini sign are happy or sad, you'll always think they're having the time of their lives. They don't ever like to act as if anything is bothering them and they'll post endless photos to prove it.

Sometimes it looks like they're living a fake reality through their camera lens. So when you see someone living some impossibly glorious life on your Instagram feed, there's a good chance that person is a Gemini -- and there's an even bigger chance that things aren't as flawless as they seem.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

One day, a Cancer's posts will be full of joy and then the next, it'll be the complete and utter opposite. Their feeds are full of contradiction because their emotions tend to fluctuate.

They hold a strong affinity for the past, which is why you see them throwing back so many "TBTs."

Leo (July 23 – August 23)

A Leo is always posting pictures with friends because this signs tends to be full of social butterflies. And you can always count on a Leo for a birthday collage (even if the pictures are more about the Leo looking good).

On the opposite end of the spectrum, they can be self-centered, so don't be surprised if you find a bunch of selfies on their feeds  — they'll do whatever it takes to keep their image looking as great as possible.

Virgo (August 24 – September 22)

People under the Virgo sign are known to be perfectionists, so it's no surprise they're overwhelmed by social media.

They take ample time when deciding on captions and and there's no filter-adjustment too small; their photos don't go live until they're absolutely perfect.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

If someone is constantly posting photos with a significant other, you can bet this person is a Libra. People of this sign need the constant support of a boyfriend or girlfriend, which explains why their feeds are full of cheesy couple pictures.

Likewise, it's why their feeds will be full of single and longing photos, tweets and quotes during the dark periods when they aren't involved with anyone.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

The Scorpio is all over the place when it comes to social media. They're the most emotional of all the signs and the most competitive.

So whether they're posting a ton of quotes or anything that will gain them likes, their posts will be sure to inundate your timeline with proof that they're emotional and competitive as all hell.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

People under the Sagittarius sign love humorous posts, regardless of whether they're brutally honest or just for sheer enjoyment. They never hide and everything they post will be a reflection of themselves since they love to keep everyone entertained.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Capricorns are overly-concerned with their appearance, so they put far too much emphasis on the amount of "likes" they get. They don't care if the photo is something they really want to post, if it's going to gain social views, it's going on the Interwebs.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

People under the Aquarius sign will post whatever they want whenever they want. They don't care what anyone else has to say and will continuously post controversial quotes and risqué photos without a second thought.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Pisces thrive during social gatherings, so you'll see photos of them wherever they go. They are creative souls by nature so you can bet they they post a ton of quotes to inspire others.

Since they're so creative, you can bet they spend ample time deciding on filters and coloring.
