It’s all well and good to know that you’re an Aquarius, but what does that actually mean? Don’t worry, babe, we’ve got you covered. We’ll make sure you’ll be able to talk the ear off the next person who asks you about your star sign. Here are 20 classic traits of an Aquarius!

1. You’re born between the 21st of January and the 18th of February.

This is kinda obvious, for those of us who are into the signs of the zodiac. But, not everyone knows that these dates are inclusive. So for those of you born on the 21st of January, or the 18th of February: congratulations! You’re most definitely an Aquarius.

2. Your ruling planet is Uranus.

Sorry, but you’re gonna get a lot of posterior-related jokes over this one. Uranus is associated with sudden upheavals in people’s lives. Let’s face it, is this really surprising when life is never ever boring for you, Aquarius?

3. You’re a humanitarian to your core.

Instagram: @fran_brevis1

You’re progressive, and it shows. You know that you can’t just ignore what’s going on in the world, so you try to make your corner of it just that little bit better. This also means that you’re the most likely of the signs to fact-check every Donald Trump tweet, and then post aggressively about it.

4. Innovation and intelligence are your best friends.

Remember when Apple Inc. said, “Think Different”? Well, you’re the original, “Think Different”. Some people say you’re weird. Others say you’re a genius. You know that you’re both: it just depends on what way your mood takes you.

5. Friends come easily to you.

Instagram: @meportemal

You’re a friend-magnet. People like how welcoming you can be – so much so, that you can end up associating with some pretty strange amigos. You’re loyal to a fault, too. When people make friends with you, they know they’re making a friend for life. 

6. Did someone say, Miss Independent?

Even though you’re good with people, you also like your alone time. This can make you come across as a bit aloof. But, let’s face it, you know that your mysteriousness can be hot as hell, too.

7. You’re detached and unpredictable.

Instagram: @fridacoss

Part of this is due to the fact that your intelligence sets you apart. If your friends and family had to sum you up in one word, they’d say, “smart”. So, really, it’s their fault if they think you’re detached and unpredictable: they’re just not operating on your level.

8. Blue and blue-green are your lucky colors.

Instagram: @k_aesthetic

As the sign of the water bearer, it just makes sense that blue and blue-green are your lucky colours. Maybe it’s time to start wearing some blue and watch your luck improve!

9. You’re compatible with four other star signs.

Instagram: @r.baudouin

And who are they? Look for a Libra, Gemini, Sagittarius or Aries when it comes to friendship and love. Not that you don’t get along with the other signs of the zodiac, but these signs set you alight with their intelligence, passion and zest for life. It’s always nice meeting a kindred soul, right?

10. But there are two signs that might grind your gears.

Instagram: @__anakarinaaa

Taurus and Scorpio are two signs of the zodiac that will stump you. You’re a dreamer, and both of these signs are quite pragmatic. But you know what they say, sometimes opposites attract, don’t they?

11. You can be a bit nervous at times.

Instagram: @beautywithnana

You might find that you can be prone to anxiety. So, don’t be afraid to tell people you’d prefer to skip the massive, scary rollercoasters when you’re spending the day at a theme park. 

12. You have a love-hate relationship with exercise.

Instagram: @vshleydiaz

You want to be fit, but you hate exercise. Don’t. We. All. You need to dedicate yourself to something quirky before you’d find yourself really enjoying your exercise routine. It’s time for you to find your closest martial arts dojo, or local pole dancing studio!

13. Brains are sexy to you.

Instagram: @optic.dream

In the wise words of Canadian hippie Alanis Morissette, all you want is intellectual intercourse. If someone doesn’t have two brain cells to rub together, should they even be allowed to rub anything else? The answer for you, of course, is no.

14. You’re super respectful of your partner’s individuality in a relationship.

Instagram: @adrianadelaguardia6

You want the both of you to be your own person – just because you got into a relationship doesn’t mean either of you stop being who you are! You are your partner’s biggest cheerleader. They want to go back to college? You’re right with them. They want to go to the moon? You’ll happily help them train to be an astronaut. It’s the Aquarius way.

15. You find it hard to open up in relationships.

Instagram: @bettymonterola

And no-one knows why. Is it because you don’t want to burden your significant other with your problems? Maybe you want your relationship to focus on the happy, good stuff. Anyway, your partner won’t know why until you open up to them about it.

16. You make a great boss.

Instagram: @_jazminglez

You make a frank and friendly leader, and you respect the intelligence and independence of your colleagues. This makes you one hell of a team player, and dependable to boot. Why wouldn’t anyone want to work with you?

17. You get itchy feet really easily.

Instagram: @travel_latina

You hate the idea of being stuck in a rut because of your job. Or your relationship. Or the place you’re living in. It’s this kind of attitude that takes you on volunteering trips overseas, or back to school. You just know that you’ve got to keep moving forward.

18. You don’t care about money when it comes to work.

Instagram: @marianbecky_

Well, to a certain extent. You like to know you’re being paid what you’re worth. But, it’s more important that you’re doing something stimulating. For you Aquarius, there is nothing worse than being bored out of your brains

19. Your perfect job taps into your intelligence and communication abilities.

Instagram: @milliedelgadonews

Think along the likes of science-based fields, such as biology. You’d also work well as an engineer, since it draws on your passion for technology. On the other hand, with your strong communication skills, you’d also do well as a psychologist, social worker, journalist, public relations consultant, or in politics, as a politician or lobbyist. 

20. Your fellow Aquariuses are pretty successful, revolutionary people.

Instagram: @quanta_gramm

As an Aquarius, you keep the company of the likes of Abraham Lincoln, Charles Darwin, Thomas Edison and Albert Einstein. Not bad, hey? Surely you’ve got a chance to join their ranks in history, and change the world for the better!

Latinas Are Sharing What Their Eyebrows Tragically Looked Like When They First Tried Anastasia Dipbrow

Latinas Are Sharing What Their Eyebrows Tragically Looked Like When They First Tried Anastasia Dipbrow

We all know that eyebrows trends are cyclical. For every decade that there’s a pluck-everything-out-and-sharpie-it-on trend, there’s another that’s all about the au naturel “Blue Lagoon” look. For example, back in the 90s, the look du jour was pencil-thin arches that Latinas like Christina Aguilera and Cameron Diaz favored. But as the 2000s wore on and celebs like the Kardashians and Cara Delevigne grew in popularity, it was no longer the style to have barely-there brows. Instead, the fashion was big, bold, and bushy. And for those of us who were not naturally blessed with bushy brows, the only option was to march our butts into Sephora and invest in some Anastasia Beverly Hill’s Dip Prow Pomade. 

Anyone who’s tried ABH’s infamous Dip Brow Pomade knows that it takes a light touch to skillfully apply the makeup and avoid looking like Oscar The Grouch. With this particular brow pomade, a little goes a long way. But when you’re scrolling through Instagram for hours and seeing all of the Baddie Influencers in all their brow-licious glory, it can be easy to get carried away with your spoolie and angle brush. Hence, the over-filled brow trend was born. 

Naturally, with the advent of social media, all of our embarrassing eyebrow-related missteps are now documented publicly for the world to see forever. 

Recently, Twitter celeb @cakefacecutie posted an all-too accurate Tweet about the way her eyebrows used to look.

The tweet referenced the aforementioned Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Prow Pomade that had virtually taken over Instagram a mere few years ago. While the rest of us were trying to forget the brick-like ombre eyebrows that looked like they’d been tattooed onto people’s faces, @cakefacecutie was reminiscing about the good ol’ days.

Who knows how the over-drawn brow look started? A more natural-looking brow has come back into style since then, rendering the “Baddie” eyebrow look obsolete and embarrassing. But at the time, it had taken over the makeup world’s aesthetic pretty quickly and with a vengeance. We all knew that girl (or were that girl) who was walking around with perma-RBF because her brows were penciled into a terrifying scowl. 

Obviously, @cakefacecutie’s tweet struck a chord, because soon her followers were sharing their own personal stories of their eyebrow evolution.

It seemed as if Twitter users were practically jumping at the chance to chime in with their makeup horror stories. 

Even this girl’s cat was side-eyeing her questionable eyebrow decisions. 

Of course, there were more than a few Latinas who shared their pics of their too-thick fake dark brows.

Let’s be honest: Latinas have never really been able to resist a thick brow (we’re looking at you, Frida!)

Back in the day, it seems as if no one was immune to the shiny allure of the dip-prow pomade!

As we said before, we blame the trend on the emergence of Cara Delevigne as Tumblr’s new It girl. We all wanted bold brows and if we had to resort to Sephora to get them, then that was just the risk we were willing to take. 

How could we forget the concealer-under-the-brow look?

Of course, an over-done eyebrow look wouldn’t be complete without “carving out” your eyebrows with a too-light concealer to really define the look with sharp edges. Because heaven forbid one hair is out of place.

As more and more people added their memories to the Twitter thread, the photos became funnier and funnier.

Maybe the Universe allows bad brow trends to happen so we can laugh about it years later on Twitter? Just a thought.

Some people’s pictures honestly looked like they were joking, the photos were so over-the-top:

There’s something about eyebrow trends that makes people go blind to the oddity of what they’re doing to their faces. And so many of us were walking around like this without anyone stopping us. Let’s be honest: friends don’t let friends overfill their brows with ABH Eyebrow Pomade. 

Unfortunately, because of the way fashion works, we’re sure that we’re currently indulging in some sort of trend that will make us look back and cringe in years to come. Maybe it’s our beloved high-waisted jeans, or the drawn-on freckles, or the resurgence of the 90s face-framing tendrils. But, one thing’s for sure: we’ll all be roasting ourselves on Twitter for thinking we looked good.

This Latina Got A Text From Her Ex Right Before His Wedding Day And Twitter Is Wrecked

This Latina Got A Text From Her Ex Right Before His Wedding Day And Twitter Is Wrecked

What would you do if an ex of yours were to hit you up out of the blue? To some it might not be a big deal, to others, it might be a little weird, and to many, it might just be a little random.  

Added plot twist: what would you do if an ex of yours were to hit you up right before his wedding day? What are you supposed to do in a situation like that? Alexa, play “Someone Like You” by Adele. 

Last week, Twitter user Alexsa Sanchez Aquilar tweeted out a text she received from an ex right before his wedding day.

Yup, you heard that right.

In a post to her Twitter feed, Sanchez Aquilar shared that her ex texted after out of the blue. The day before his wedding.  the “I’m getting married tomorrow. I wanted to send you this message. (My fiance knows I’m sending this to you) Thank you for being my first love. Thank you for always encouraging me, thank you for keeping me out of trouble, thank you for the times you took care of me when I was sick, and depressed. Thank you for loving me. If you haven’t already I hope you one day find love,” the message says.

While the woman who shared the tweet didn’t say much when sharing the initial screenshot beside “i–i’m speechless” –– other people on Twitter had a lot of mixed reactions as the tweet quickly went viral.

The really long message from her ex goes on to say, “If you loved me that much when we were young I can only imagine how strong people and powerful your love is now. The way your heart is made it’s amazing. I know we were only kids when we dated but you taught me what love is. To the man who is lucky enough to have you as their wife I hope he treats you with care, I hope he knows who he has in front of him, I hope he shows you love and loyalty every day. You deserve that and more.”

“My point in all of this is, you are the reason why I know how to love someone. You taught me love, you taught me how to deal with my anger, how to deal with my depression and how to live life to the fullest and I’m grateful for you. I wish you love and happiness.”

BuzzFeed, who first wrote about the viral tweet, also reached out to Aguilar for comment. “At first, I didn’t know what to say. I started crying when I read the text –– it warmed my heart that I helped him be a better version of himself.”

But of course, many didn’t share Aguilar’s sentiment had questions about why the ex felt the need to send her a text the day before his wedding?

Like, should Aguilar have been like “congratulations, but are you sure about getting married?”

While some understood where @masonrain_ was coming from, they felt that perhaps the ex-boyfriend was simply reflecting and expressing his gratitude toward Aquilar –– even if the timing felt a bit sketchy.

But @masonrain_  flat out thought it was disrespectful to both Aguilar and the fiancé. It got people thinking and arguing about whether you’d be a little thrown off if your partner told you that they’d be reaching out to their ex the day before your wedding?

Ultimately, many Twitter users disputed these sentiments and arguments pointing out that in a lot of cases, breakups and past relationship make can make us stronger and that reflecting on them and growing from those mistakes is a good thing.

Plus, while some relationship may have ended badly –– you don’t always have to hold on to resentment or residual feelings of animosity for the rest of your life.

It sounds like Aguilar and her ex-boo went through a lot during their time together as a young couple, and it sounds like they look back at it fondly rather than negatively.

For one, Aguilar tells BuzzFeed that the texts weren’t weird at all –– despite everybody else’s two cents about the situation. She tells BuzzFeed that she and her ex had helped each other through difficult times. “We helped each other heal, I feel like no matter what happens, he and I will forever have respect towards each other,” she said.

Like Aguilar said we can all benefit from a broken heart and allow ourselves to see why a relationship might not have worked out and chalk it up it as a lesson learned.

I wanted to show that just because things don’t work out with someone, that doesn’t mean you should have hate towards them,” Aguilar said. “Regardless of everything, you were meant to be a part of that person’s life, and them, yours.”
