These Libras Are The Pure Embodiment Of The Characteristics That Make Libras The People We Love

brunomars / sofiareyes / Instagram

You can spot a Libra from their Instagram aesthetic because it’s on point. It’s hard to dislike a Libra, and that’s kind of a fact. They’re kind, romantic as hell, charming, and general do-gooders. Basically, they’re all Hufflepuffs.

They also struggle with saying “no,” can get a little carried away with the superficial, can be fickle and indecisive and self-indulgent. All that said, these Libras made their claim to fame, likely because of every single one of these traits. Make our list next year, dear Libra reader.

Born on October 4, 1990, Amara is the break out star of “Love & Hip Hop: Miami” and is showing her Afro-Latinidad pride all over the place. Plus, that style? I’m here for it.

Born on September 26, 1981, Milian is more than just about image. She’s about what her presence represents. She told HuffPost, “I’m Cuban but [people] didn’t get it because I was also brown-skinned… Latinos come in all colors, all shades… You should see my mom and her brothers and sisters… We just vary in color, shapes and sizes. But we’re still Latinos — that doesn’t change a damn thing.”

Classic Libra, speaking on behalf of all of us and working it.

Tyler Posey

Well, we don’t know if Oct. 18 baby Posey won people over with his Libra ways or just being a dreamy guy on “Teen Wolf.” We do know our hearts go out to him after his mother passed of breast cancer in 2014, and Season 5 was dedicated in her memory.

Here Are The Latino Sodas You Need To Try Based On Your Zodiac Sign

nataliedrawn / topochicousa / Instagram

While the rest of society is tapping into how nature is a significant signaler to our emotional and spiritual needs, Latinos grew up finding meaning in every change in the wind, and every dream. We’re superstitious AF, but we’re also highly in tune with nature.

We’re also chugging soda and eating Goya beans from a can because it’s 2019 and we have full-time jobs and three other gigs to get to. Whatever you have on your plate today, these zodiac-aligned sodas are destined to be more effective for you, hijo de las estrellas.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Honey, the arrangement of the stars this summer is signaling you to stay off the ‘gram. Get away from social media and get out of your head. There’s nothing like a sweet, tropical Jupiña to take with you to the beach or mountains.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Taurus’s are often misunderstood as lazy, but the fact is that you are more in touch with your self and your needs than any other sign. You’re free from the shame of indulging as an act of self-love. So when you have a Malta, you definitely add condensed milk to it to maximize the effects of every self-treat. Plus, it reminds you of drinking Malta as a niño and feeling like you could kick your feet up with the beer-drinking adults.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

You’re represented by celestial twins–signifying a range of meanings, primarily to represent your many interests. The story goes that the goddess had so many passions, she doubled herself to get it all done. Cuba’s Iron Beer hasn’t decided whether it’s root beer or cream soda, and that’s because, like you, it can be both. 

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

This summer, your space is yours. Whether you’re staying home to reflect and refuel your tank or burning up that gasolina on the dance floor, Jarritos stay with you. Nourishing both your home realm and your social side will be important for you. Pro tip: spiked Jarritos is even better.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Leo, your allure could be spotted from a mile away. Inca Kola’s neon yellow bubble gum flavors will make you glow in the dark. Don’t play like that doesn’t sound like your dream.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

The energies of the lunar eclipse in Capricorn is still inspiring productivity like never before in you, hermit. Topo Chico is not a soda, per se, but it is a bubbly drink that you can enjoy anytime. Whether you’re drinking it straight from the bottle at your desk or adding your favorite fruits, Topo Chico is the only bubbly you need to keep you in the zone.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Ooh, Libra, your summer is set to look very physically (read: so much sex) active. You always have many people vying for your attention, but as you work on building trust with your chosen partner, you’re going to need to hydrate. Materva is brewed with mate leaves, giving you a bit of caffeine (alongside 40 grams of sugar, but who’s counting) to fuel your love life.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Like Mexican Coke, you, scorpion, have a cult following. But this month isn’t about what other people think of you. No matter the expectations of you, it’s time to turn inward and go back to old wounds that cause all the classic drama in your life. Don’t worry, when you let it go, you’ll still be a classic inside and out.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Travels are in your future, Sagittarius. There’s nothing more germane to its country of origin than Colombiana soda. Its bubble gum scented cream soda flavors will always remind you of the importance of honoring the place you visit.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Fellow sea goats–it has been un mes tan pesado. No te preocupes–instead of trying to find out where you fit, it’s time to realize you belong everywhere in this world. You’re not just a Mundet, you’re an elusive green apple cider. Embrace your individuality. It will set you free.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

You, Aquarius, are in a humanitarian activist mode. With Puerto Rico’s police force firing tear gas and rubber bullets at protesters, PR’s favorite soda, Kola Champagne, will be fuel for your fire.

Our favorite water-lovers can take their game to the next level this summer with Coco Rico. This soda is here for you when you want to drink out of a coconut on the beach, but with more sugar and carbonation. It’s next-level water, básicamente.

Here Are The Aguas Frescas You Have To Try This Summer Based On Your Zodiac

la.chelle / Instagram

The best part of summer is starting hot days off with agua frescas and ending them caldos. If you feel as overwhelmed by all the colorful options at the agua frescas stands as we do, don’t fret.

The stars have already spoken. Here’s the agua fresca your body thirsts for based on your zodiac sign.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

@melightjuice / Instagram

This year, Agua de Jamaica will energize your way through what might be a challenging summer. Listen up, it’ll only be as challenging as you make it. And you, ambitious ram, like a challenge. Agua de jamaica will give you sweet and tartness to keep you inspired and satisfied all summer long.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

@fruta.mia / Instagram

While it’s true that Tauruses are known for being work horses, the bull is actually a large puppy in a field. You like to be outside and feel soothed by a cool breeze and delicate tastes. Horchata is all that in one, silky smooth, warming glass. Disfrute.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

@nutritionaldesigns / Instagram

Mercury rules your sign, and as the planet enters Leo this week, your perspective on communication and learning will shift. Chia seeds fuel the brain and so will this Mexican Cucumber Lime Chia Agua Fresca.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

@BonitoLeonGto / Twitter

Your inner crab may be the wateriest of the water signs, giving you the one superhero power most folks can’t handle: picking up on other people’s emotions. That inner chime is exhausting, so let it settle with a fermented Tepache de Piña.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

@horneando_fotos / Instagram

Like Agua de Tamarindo, your summer style is always a classic and crowd favorite. It’s not an agua fresca party without Agua de Tamarindo just like it’s just not a party without a Leo.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

@mezquitetacos / Instagram

Virgo is represented by the goddess of wheat and agriculture. Quench your inner goddess with Agua de Cebada (Barley). Cebada is one of the first cultivated grains over 10,000 years ago. This agua fresca will feel like coming home this summer.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

@GCepedaMagico / Twitter

You’re all about balance and harmony, and while most agua frescos are known for being sweet, a lil agua de alfalfa never hurt nobody. It’s basically tasty green juice.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

@CocinaVideos / Twitter

We all knew Scorpios would be enjoying agua de nopal all summer, but not for the reasons you think. The flavors of nopal aren’t for everyone, but those who like it are reaping major benefits. Rich in calcium, magnesium, and iron, there’s a reason agua de nopal is more hydrating than any other bland agua. You spice up our lives, Scorpios, with your rich palettes.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

@FoodizShare / Twitter

Earth’s best adventurer is no niña fresa, and yet, agua de fresas are going to be your right-hand thirst quencher this summer. You’ll be craving more intimacy this summer, so while you adventure, enjoy this comforting taste of home.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

@bromasaur / Instagram

Fellow seagoats, ya es Verano! Everyone thinks we’re overly ambitious and practical, but come nightfall and close friends, we like a good party. We just like to start with the basics. The basics to a good piña colada is hydration via agua piña.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

@fruta.mia / Instagram

Any Aquarius knows that they are not a watery bunch. You’re the last air sign of the zodiac, represented by a water bearer—a healer. Agua fresca de melon is one of the most hydrating and healing aguas our mystical Aquarius could bestow. Drink up.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

@chicanoeats / Instagram

Did you know watermelon is is 91.5 percent water? Pisces signs, represented by the two cutest fish in the sea, are also very watery and fluid in this life. Agua de sandia represents who you are year round.
