In the age of social media, Instagram has become an alternate reality. It's a place where we can design our very own public persona that the rest of the world gets to see. No matter what your life is really like, Instagram allows you to project the life you want to have. While this can land people in a toxic spiral of obsessing over likes, comments, and follower counts, there’s no doubt Instagram has provided us all with a platform. Even the quietest voice can now reach thousands, if not millions of people, all through an app on their phone. How amazing is that? I know we’re all so used to this weird aspect of our society but if you take a minute to think about it, Instagram is a mind-blowing feat. What you post on it can say so much about who you are, and what your Instagram looks like, according to your zodiac sign, will probably make so much sense.
Whether you use Instagram to market your business, connect with friends, waste some time, or even make your life seem way cooler than it really is, the image you project says so much about how you see yourself and how you’d like to be seen. This is why it’s also a good idea to read what your rising sign says about your Instagram presence as well, considering how rising signs are all about how you navigate your public personality.
