These Virgo Celebrities Will Make You Realize Why You Love Your Virgo Amigos So Much

Virgo Season (August 23-September 22) is upon us which might explain why you’re feeling suddenly industrious, organized and efficient. OK, maybe you’re not, but these celebrity Virgos have used their star-given talents to make it to the top.

Virgos are known for being crazy detail-oriented and are total perfectionists. They’re also known for caring about the greater good, and are rarely ever sheep.

Here are some of the most notable Virgos that you can totally relate to.

Salma Hayek

Born on September 2, 1966, Mexicana Salma Hayek first made it in the business as a model before becoming a wildly successful telenovela actress and eventually a film star. Like a good Virgo, she has used her platform to speak out against domestic violence and for immigrant rights.

Fun fact: When she was 12 years old, Hayek was sent to a boarding school in Louisiana that expelled her after two years. She eventually went to study International Relations at the Universidad Iberoamericana in Mexico City, but quit to become an actress. Ay-oh.

Marc Anthony

Born on September 16, 1968 as Marco Antonio Muñiz, Anthony is one of the most famous salsa artists of all time. Originally from Spanish Harlem in New York City, he’s also known for being graced with Jennifer Lopez’s wifely presence. Nobody deserves her grace, which is why they aren’t together anymore.

Anthony first rose to fame for writing the songs for boricua group Menudo. His parents, Felipe and Guillermina, are originally from Guyana, Puerto Rico. Anthony is a true Virgo (y boricua) in that he’s joined forces with Jennifer Lopez to raise money for the victims of Hurricane María, who have largely been abandoned by the U.S. government.

Thalía

Born as Ariadna Thalía Sodi Miranda on August 26, 1971, Thalía is known as the Queen of Latin Pop. She’s just as famous for her humanitarian efforts with March of Dimes and disaster relief work for Mexico after the devastating earthquake in Mexico City.

Thalía has sung in English, Spanish, Portuguese, and Filipino. She also went to Liceo Franco Mexicano elementary school and has been speaking French since she was a niña. By then she was already a star, given that she had first appeared in a TV commercial by the time she was one years old. A true Virgo star.

Eugenio Derbez

Variety magazine recognized him as the most influential Latino in the entertainment industry in 2014. Born on September 2, 1961, Derbez’s qualifying Virgo status (besides his birthday) is his soft spot for animals. Derbez is a vegetarian. 🙂

Fun fact: Derbez was the voice of Donkey in the Spanish language versions of the films Shrek and Shrek 2. It’s all fitting since he’s been acting since his first extra spot at 12 years old on a telenovela.

Justina Machado

Born in Chicago on September 6, 1972, Boricua Machado is currently starring as Penelope Alvarez on Netflix’s “One Day at a Time.” Her role is honestly a service to Latino Americans as Penelope is a single Cuban-American mom who confronts mental illness, veteran issues, LGBT rights, immigrant rights and more in the binge-worthy series.

Seriously, go watch it now, before Virgo season is over. Mother Teresa was a Virgo, for Christ’s sake. Machado learned most of her acting from the Latino Chicago Theater, which launched her into acting roles in more than 15 films. In the last few years since she’s been in the spotlight, she’s generated at least $2 million in net worth. Take my money, Machado. It’s for a good cause.

Jessica Pimentel

Born on September 20, 1982, Pimentel became an American sensation with her role as Maria Ruiz on “Orange is the New Black.” Long before that role, she has been playing Juliet on tour and is a trained classical violinist in a heavy metal band.

Talk about meticulous attention to detail? Girl is a violinist. That takes dedication. She actually shared that the orchestra has given her a metaphor for life: “In fact, where you sit is determined by how well you play. At any moment, someone can challenge you for your seat and if they are better than you, they move up. I always took that as a metaphor for life — you have to stay on your toes and put in the work to get to where you want to be.” Preach.

Will Levy

He’s the Cuban Brad Pitt and the rest of America learned about his good looks and smooth moves on “Dancing with the Stars.” He’s basically a renaissance man, putting him right in line with every other over achieving Virgo you know. He’s also really dreamy.

Levy didn’t always want to be an actor. When his family moved from Havana to Miami, he wanted to become a professional baseball player. But then someone opened their eyes and swooped him into a modeling career, which launched him into some reality shows, which… well you get the picture. We like looking at him.

Sara Ramirez

Born on August 31, 1975, Ramirez has been overachieving since the beginning. She casually graduated from Julliard and immediately started performing on Broadway long before her role as Callie Torres on “Grey’s Anatomy.” Girl actually won a Tony award in 2005 for her performance in broadway play Spamalot. Remember that epic musical episode where Callie almost died and Sara Ramirez was clearly the best? Now you know why. 🙂

Plus, she’s one of the most outspoken Latinos for LGBT rights in the industry and we’re all heart-eyeing for everything she touches. She actually took a year hiatus from acting in order to devote fully to LGBT rights, which awarded her the “Human Rights Campaign’s Ally for Equality Award.” LOL–that was back in 2015 when she was an ally and not an out bisexual queen.

Johnny Sibilly

Born on September 5, 1987 and well known for his work on “Pose,” “Femme” and “The Deuce,” Sibilly is also an outspoken LGBT rights activist and has shared the cutest first kiss story ever with Into More:

“I remember the first time a boy approached me and gave me butterflies and I’d never felt that before. I was at a drama competition and I saw this guy that I thought was super cute and I wasn’t fully out. I remember he came up behind me, I was sitting in a chair, and he whispered in my ear, “you’re so f*cking cute.”

And I just got chills all over my whole body and I’ll never forget that feeling as long as I live. It’s never been recreated. He was my first boyfriend. It was the most amazing feeling that I’d ever felt, it felt like an electric shock, like I was paralyzed for a minute or two and I wanted to tell everyone how it made me feel because it felt amazing.”

Caption: “GAY is more than okay!”

Cameron Díaz

Born on August 30, 1972, Diaz is the retired model and actress we all know and love. What you might not know is that Diaz has learned to be happy and politically engaged. She advocates for voter rights and encourages all her followers to vote every single time.

Raised in Long Beach, Diaz struggled to be fully accepted into the Latino community because of her blonde hair and blue eyes, but says she tries to bring her Latin roots into every role she plays. Crazy story: between the ages of 16 and 21, Diaz lived in Japan, Australia, Mexico, Morocco and Paris to keep up with her modeling career.

Julian Casablancas

He’s a cusper. Casablancas was born on August 23, 1978 and we know him best as the lead singer from The Strokes, RIP. Before The Strokes, he was trained in classical music theory, like a true meticulous Virgo. “I wanted to learn the basic rules. If you’re going to be a surgeon, you want the one who studied, you don’t want the one who was the most inspired.” He just beats to his own drum, what can I say?

Casablancas is completely open about his addictive personality and alcoholism affecting the Strokes’ early years. He admits his hay days are all a haze.

De La Ghetto

CREDIT: @delaghettoreal / Instagram

Formally known as Rafael Castillo, De La Ghetto was born in New York on September 17, 1984. Virgos get the job done, and Castillo has been after it since he was a young boy. He actually grew up in Puerto Rico, in the midst of the birth of reggaetón in the 90’s and we feel the island vibes in all his work.

De La Ghetto told Billboard magazine this year, “I think people should listen to my music because I’m a second, third generation Latino American,” says the proud Latino. “I represent all the young kids in the streets that…que quiero luchar por algo importante por ellos [all the young kids in the streets that want to fight for something important — for them].” De acuerdo, De La Ghetto.

Lupe Ontiveros

CREDIT: @marissamontiveros / Instagram

Born on September 17, 1942, we all loved to hate her as Yolanda Saldívar in “Selena” and struggled to accept her as anything other than a villain in every performance. Tragically, Ontiveros passed a few months ago, but her memory lives on in her work in Hollywood.

She appeared in over 100 movies and TV shows, from “El Norte” to “Desperate Housewives.” All through the 1970s, Ontiveros proudly played dozens and dozens of maids in shows like “Alice” and “Charlie’s Angels.”

J.D. Pardo

CREDIT: @jdpardo / Instagram

Jorge Daniel “J.D.” Pardo was born on September 7, 1980 to an Argentine father and Salvadoran mother. We know him best from “A Girl Like Me” and “Twilight.” He played one of Jacob’s wolfy, hot-headed, hot-bodied friends. Recuerdes? Plus, if you’re a full fledged rom com dork like me, you’ll remember him from A Cinderella Story (2004).

To be honest, we haven’t seen him on the big (or little) screen in awhile but we’re certain he’s cooking up some new gigs like any good Virgo would. Te echemos de menos.

Victoria Moroles

CREDIT: @victoriamoroles / Instagram

We recognize this Tejana from “Teen Wolf” and our Disney days of “Liv and Maddie.” Born on September 4, 1996, our eyes are on Moroles to see how she uses her platform for good. It’s only been about a year since she graduated high school. Before that, she was going to Teen Wolf on-screen high school and an off-screen high school. If she didn’t become an actress, she told Zimbio that she would have become either a homeopathic doctor or member of an all girl rock band. “Depends on the day.”

Touché, Moroles. But thank you for becoming an actress instead. 🙂

Ryan Guzman

CREDIT: @ryanguzman / Instagram

Born on September 21, 1987, actor Ryan Guzman has been in the company of J.Lo, which makes him more famous than his work on “The Boy Next Door,” “Heroes Reborn” and “Boyhood.” Can you tell I’m a die hard boricua for J-Lo? Beyond being graced by J-Lo, he’s also a mixed martial arts fighter and son to an Air Force veteran.

His proud Latino heritage is a big motivator for him. He told NBC News, “The more I grow as an actor and let my name become known, I can start investing that into my own company and hopefully show off the embodiment of my heritage.”

Belén Rodríguez

CREDIT: @belenrodriguezreal1 / Instagram

Born as María Belén Rodríguez Cozzani, Rodríguez, Belén is a classic Virgo in that she won’t be told what to do. Since her rise to fame as a model and TV host, Rodríguez has taken up residency in Milan, Italy and it seems like she’s staying there.

In Virgo fashion, she had to speak up publicly when she learned of Tiziana Cantone, an Italian woman who suffered online abuse and then killed herself. When men (and women) release sex tapes of other people, it ruins lives. Rodriguez spoke out saying that she actually had a miscarriage when she suffered a similar abuse. Thank you for speaking up. <3

Kevin Ortiz

Born on September 18, 1995, Ortiz grew up playing the accordion with his family. While his brother is pop singer Gerardo Ortiz, he isn’t overshadowed by him. He’s been signed with BadSin Records after his performance at the Youth Awards.

In Billboard’s “Mexican Millenials” panel in 2015, Ortiz talked about the importance of unity within the Latin genre. That since he was a “chiciquito,” he was playing instruments and making music with his tios and, of course, his superstar brother, Gerardo Ortiz. He’s known for making modern music with traditional mariachi elements and is now a judge on the talent-hunt show “Tengo Talengo, Mucho Talento.”

Alexa PenaVega

CREDIT: @vegaalexa / Instagram

Remember “Spy Kids”? Our girl is all grown up and has been starring in “Ruby & The Rockits.” PenaVega was born in Miami on August 27, 1988 and is now 29 years old and married to the incredibly talented and handsome Carlos PenaVega.

Last Christmas, the couple released a beautiful Hallmark film called Enchanted Christmas. The film heavily involves dancing so if you want to see a Dancing With The Stars contestant work his magic with Alexa, dale.

This Is The New Year’s Resolution For You Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Carol Yepes / Getty Images

The new year is the perfect time to set goals, make changes, and have a fresh start, but it can also be hard to figure out where to begin. Plus, 2021 isn’t just any new year – I mean take a look back at 2020, we have so much to turn the page from.

Well, one helpful place to start is to look to the stars. Based on their characteristics, every Zodiac sign has a potential goal they can work toward in 2021, despite whatever obstacles may be coming their way. Keep reading to find out about your sign’s resolutions, and cheers to a new year!

ARIES

aries

As one of the most restless signs, Aries are enthusiastic and can have a hard time sitting still. Lean into that need for stimulation and make a goal this year to find a new hobby — maybe playing a sport or learning an instrument — and see it all the way through to perfecting it. With Aries impatience, this may be difficult, but it’ll be worth the satisfaction when you accomplish it.

TAURUS

taurus

While you’re extremely strong and committed, this often can lead to stubbornness. In 2021, pick your battles. While your passion is admirable, sometimes compromise is necessary. Alleviate some stress by figuring out what is worth fighting for and what could be easily settled with mutual understanding.

GEMINI

gemini

A Gemini is known to be passionate but indecisive, and you tend to divide your focus among the variety of tasks you want to accomplish. This year, go easy on yourself! There’s no need to take on too many projects at once and get overwhelmed. Harness that passion towards something you really want, and work on that first.

CANCER

cancer

People often rely on their Cancer friends for help with a problem since Cancers are incredibly empathetic. In 2021, don’t be afraid to ask for help yourself. It’s great that you love being there for others, but let others be there for you too every once in a while.

LEO

leo

Leos have amazing confidence and bring a powerful presence to any room. In the new year, use that Leo energy toward a cause you feel passionate about. Plus, after the debacle of 2020, it would be a great time to get involved in your community and use your strong voice to make a change you’d like to see.

VIRGO

virgo

Virgos are incredibly organized and responsible, which are wonderful traits to have. But in 2021, in between scheduling and making to-do lists, remember to set aside at least a little bit of time each day to relax. It might be a challenge, but try not to sweat the small stuff, and instead put that energy toward some well-deserved self-care.

LIBRA

libra

As a Libra, you’re constantly seeking balance, but you hate change and are prone to analysis paralysis. To help with that Libran indecision, get into the habit of making pros and cons lists. It’s a great way to put your natural skills in logic to good use, and can help you feel more confident about your choices.

SCORPIO

scorpio

As one of the most emotional signs, you can sometimes let your feelings get the best of you in the forms of jealousy and secrecy. In the new year, make sure your friends and family know that you care about them. Whether it’s a trip, a gift, or quality time, go out of your way to show your loved ones how much they mean to you.

SAGITTARIUS

sagitarious

Being the most adventurous sign, a Sagittarius longs for freedom and exploration. Feed that restlessness by taking a trip this year to somewhere you’ve never been. Maybe it’s somewhere on another continent, or maybe it’s just the next town over, but find a place you’ve always wanted to check out to satisfy your constant wanderlust.

CAPRICORN

capricorn

Capricorns are disciplined and responsible, which makes you among the most reliable signs. In 2021, feel free to try something spontaneous! The best memories can be made from something unplanned, which might sound crazy to you. But if the opportunity to seize the moment presents itself, take it and you won’t regret it.

AQUARIUS

New Year’s Resolution

While you love helping others, you rarely express your own emotions. This year, try to open up a little by keeping a journal. Jotting down some thoughts from time to time could be cathartic for the feelings you tend to keep to yourself, and might be the first step in having an easier time relaying your emotions to others.

PISCES

New Year’s Resolution

The last New Year’s Resolution is for Pisces, They are among the most artistic signs. Is there an art project you’ve always dreamed of working on — maybe a painting, a short film, or an album? Make 2021 the year you make that dream a reality. You can tend to have your head in the clouds, but why not bring your fantasies to life through your art?

What do you think? Do you already have your resolutions all figured out for 2021?

Which WWE Finishing Move are you Based on your Horoscope?

Which WWE Finishing Move are you Based on your Horoscope?

2020 feels like being thrown off the top of the Hell in a Cell structure and crashing through the announcement table, fam. It’s been painful and disorienting. Even if we don’t know where this wild year will lead us, at the very least we still have the release of WWE 2K Battlegrounds to look forward to. Can I have a Yassss [in Spanish]? Thank you. That was beautiful. 

(Scroll to the bottom to check out the WWE 2K Battlegrounds trailer!)

While 2020 figures itself out, at the very least we can unleash some madrasos on our friends and primos while playing this high flying, face smashing, adrenaline exploding brawl-style arcade game full of WWE Superstars and Legends. A HUEVO! But if you find it difficult to decide which finishing move you’re going to decimate your friends or primos with, NO WORRIES, baby…you can always look to the cosmos – because this article is going to tell you which WWE Finishing move you are based on your horoscope AND how you can send your opponents crying to their mamas. 

ARIES

Aries. You’re Randy Orton’s RKO. But, Aries. Come on. You already knew that, fam. You’re calculated. Aggressive. Assertive. You’ll run into your friend at the supermarket and they’ll be telling you how their mom is doing good and how she’s around the corner getting some hair dye and BAM! RKO! You’ll drop that person right in the middle of the cereal aisle because you spotted them an elote that one time and they never paid you back. Aries, you’re wild. And that spontaneity will serve you well when you play WWE 2K Battlegrounds.

TAURUS

Taurus, you love beautiful things and you’re a very committed person – meaning, you just don’t let things GO! Taurus, it’s obvious. You’re Charlotte Flair’s Figure 8. Your finisher is beautiful. Stunning. And when you got that baby locked in, Taurus, you’ll never let go! You’re like my mom who never forgave me that one time I ordered pizza when she was about to reheat calabazas she made a week ago. So lock in that Figure 8, Taurus. Make your enemies throw their controllers in anger.

GEMINI

Dear, Gemini, of course you’re going to drop two finishers on somebody. You’ve got that crazy cosmic duality in you, fam. This means you’re definitely Sasha’s Back Stabber AND Bank Statement. When people play WWE 2K Battlegrounds with you, they’ll think they’re only playing a game. Ba-HAHAHAH! This ain’t a game to you! You came to win, Gemini. But, please Gemini, do us all a favor. Don’t play with llorones. Cause you’re gonna make someone cry with those moves.

CANCER

Cancer, your finishing move is Keith Lee’s Big Bang Catastrophe. You have great emotional depth. You’re sensitive. So it makes sense that your move should rock your opponent to their core, while bringing the two of you close. Cancer, when you drop that Big Bang Catastrophe, you are going to bond with your opponent so much. As their back slams onto the mat and you land, full-weight, on top of them…you’ll be closer than arroz y frijoles. Or like asada on tortilla. Or any other delicious food pairings you prefer. Cancer, thank you for caring so much about how you destroy your amigos and siblings. 

LEO

Leo, this is your world, baby. You’re the king of the ring, which means, obvio, your finisher is The Undertaker’s Tombstone Piledriver. This is a legendary move. People don’t come back from this. One time I was watching the Undertaker deliver the Tombstone Piledriver on TV and from behind I heard my mom say to me, “Ese hombre no tiene madre.” I turned to my mom and said…”No. El Undertaker no tiene madre. Viene del infierno.” My mom gasped. She’d never met someone que no tiene madre before. So, when you’re playing that WWE 2K Battlegrounds, te suplico…take it easy on the other players. The Undertaker is not like the rest of us. 

VIRGO

Virgo, you’re a perfectionist. You’re detail oriented. Your finisher is Drew McIntyre’s Future Shock DDT. This is a precision move. When you were a kid in line to hit the piñata, everyone swung blindfolded with all their might and made a fool of themselves. But not you, Virgo. You were solving formulas and equations in your head. By the time they handed you the palo to swing at the piñata, you knew the precise moment to swing, exploding that piñata and catching everyone off-guard, including your tío who was previously holding the piñata rope and subsequently hanging from the roof of the garage. Drop that DDT, baby. Drop it like it’s hot.

LIBRA

Libra you’re all about harmony and human connection. AWWW…Libra, eres muy cute. Except for when you’re making human connection by using Becky Lynch’s Disarm-Her finishing move to dislocate your opponent’s shoulder. Libra, while most people make connections by holding hands, or a simply high 5’ing… you don’t. Because your idea of connection is grabbing someone by the wrist, like Becky Lynch, and trying to yank their arm out. Libra, use this move in WWE 2K Battlegrounds to disable that cousin who taunted you saying, “You fight like a girl.” After you break their arm in the video game, let them know…”You’re damn right I do.”

SCORPIO

Scorpio, te vale madre what others think of you. You’re a Stone Cold Stunner, baby. You do things como te dé la gana. So when you step into the ring, you make your own rules. When your friend says your playing is “weak” – STUNNER. When someone tries to pick up a chair in the game – STUNNER. When your prima says, “I’m gonna pause, I need to use the restroom” – STUNNER. When your mom comes in asking if anyone wants limonada. STUN…wait, NO. Don’t give your a’ma a stunner. That’s rude. Your mom does a lot. Say, “please and thank you…” then give everyone else a STUNNER and drink your limonada as if it tastes like victory. 

SAGITTARIUS

Sagittarius, you’re known for taking the road less traveled. When most go for a hard scoop slam, not you Sagittarius. Not you. You do Strowman’s Running Powerslam. Because a body slam is such a “from point A to point B” type of move. But you like to lift your opponents onto your shoulder like they’re a wholesale-sized bag of dog food and you run Sagittarius. You run from point A, to B, to C, to D, and you slam your friend’s character in the game somewhere around point Y, or Z. And when your friend says, “I’m tired of losing…can we order a pizza?” You say to them, “No. I take the road less traveled. I want Peruvian food. And I’d also like to travel away from not playing. We shall continue to play, and I shall continue to destroy you. I take the road less traveled.”  

CAPRICORN

Capricorn. You don’t mess around. Neither does Asuka’s Asuka Lock, which totally makes sense as your WWE finishing move. Others may see you as serious and traditional, but when you’ve got that Asuka Lock on them all they’re gonna see is that they’re about to lose the match, because you’ve got a grip on them that’s tighter than your abuelo’s abnormally strong handshake. Why do all abuelos have that grip, though? My hand hurts just thinking about it…And just like your abuelo makes you panic everytime he holds out his hand to saludar, so will your enemies when you play as Asuka.  

AQUARIUS

Aquarius, you’re a little bit of a peacock, and that’s meant in a good way. Your finishing move is Rey Mysterio’s 619. And it makes sense. You have panache. You’ve got style. You’ve got dance moves that make your mom wanna tell you, “deberías ir a la iglesia más seguido (you should go to church more often).” The 619 is a special move. It’s got style. It’s got excitement. And it’s got you swinging two boots like a roundhouse kick at your opponent’s face. Listen to the stars, Aquarius…the stars want you to kick your opponent in the face.    

PISCES

Pisces, you are artistic. You’re a dreamer. You go with the flow. So when you flatten your opponents like handmade tortillas, you bet your mother’s enchiladas you’re using Alexa Bliss’s Twisted Bliss. Not only is this finisher a true work of art, but when your amiga sees you soaring off the top turnbuckle in the game, she’ll suddenly get the urge to apologize for all the wrong she’s ever done to you: like when she said your brother reminds her of that sexy reggaeton artist. Because as soon as that Twisted Bliss connects and her character in the game is totally norteada, her only hope of survival is that you have mercy on her. But WWE 2K Battlegrounds isn’t about mercy. If she wanted mercy, she should’ve played dominoes with her mom.

WWE 2K Battlegrounds is out NOW! Whatever your zodiac sign, this game is loaded with finishers from tons of WWE Superstars that totally align with your cosmic energy. So get ready to spend hours of fun drop kicking your friends in the back of the head, crashing your brother through a table, and giving your cousins spears, rock bottoms, and glam slams – because this game takes wrestling to new heights with over-the-top action you won’t get anywhere else. 

As promised, here’s the WWE 2K Battlegrounds trailer!

*Please don’t try these moves at home. No. Not even with a helmet.*
