Find Out Which Zodiac Sign Makes The Perfect Partner For You

Some of us might think astrology has absolutely nothing do con el amor. I mean, they say que uno no escoge de quién se enamora. But truth is, there are certain guys and girls we get along with way easier than others, which makes relationships less work and more fun. This is the novio/novia that would rock your world, in the positive sense, based on your astrological sign.

Signs you’re most compatible with: Leo, Sagittarius and Aquarius.

While Aries run the show, you couldn’t stand someone with a submissive personality that would just follow your every move. You need an equal, someone who is as driven as you. As a fire sign, you need someone who is going to fuel your stamina and adventure, but it’d be great if your partner is a bit more cautious than you are and doesn’t react to your mal genio.

Signs you’re most compatible with: Virgo, Capricorn, Cancer and Pisces.

You need a friend before anything else. You don’t believe in “love at first sight” and don’t go around trusting everyone. For you, love is for life so you need to make sure you are with the right person before diving in head first. You need stability, trust and a bit of romance. Your ideal date is probably a quiet evening a home, with your favorite movie and mucha comida. Don’t we all?

Signs you’re most compatible with: Libra, Sagittarius and Aquarius.

Amas la aventura, homebodies needn’t apply. You crave intellectual stimulation and you love being around someone who challenges the way you think in a unaggressive way. You love hanging out with friends and family, so you need a sociable partner. You live for romance and you’re the happiest once you’ve found the (right) one.

Signs you’re most compatible with: Pisces, Taurus and Cancer.

You’re the Care Bear of zodiac signs and you usually wear your heart on your sleeve, however you truly only click with few people. The phrase “marry your best friend” was probably invented by a Cancer because that’s exactly what you crave. You love being at home and sharing that sacred space with your significant other. That’s what makes you truly happy. You crave constant love, attention and affection, so an independent soul wouldn’t do it for you.

Leo

Signs you’re most compatible with: Aries, Sagittarius and Libra.

The king or queen of the jungle. You’re full of confidence and social grace. You have no problem speaking your mind and drool over affection more like a perrito than a lion. Loving partners who are not afraid of PDA are your thing. You like physical, verbal and emotional loving affirmations. You seek beauty and a partner who will shine on your arm, without stealing your spotlight. You need to feel super proud of your partner and often aim to date what some may consider “outside of your league.”

Signs you’re most compatible with: Taurus, Cancer, Virgo and Capricorn.

You are known as the solterón of the zodiac (Virgo guys more so than girls) and because you’re totally comfortable with being single, you will not settle for less than the ideal partner you have in mind. You take your time getting to know a person and hope they’ll play the script as you imagine it in your mind. You need someone who will make you feel at home and give you amor incondicional.

Libra

Signs you’re most compatible with: Gemini, Aquarius, Sagittarius and Leo.

You seek fairness, balance and equality in all aspects of your life. You’re analytical and indecisive which means it takes foreeeever for you to find someone you actually like as your mate. You need a soulmate who is passionate, funny, smart and warm, but also independent. Libra needs to like their partner as much as they love them.

Signs you’re most compatible with: Cancer, Pisces and Scorpio.

Your friends and partners tend to have that strange feeling that you’re always keeping a secret and to some extent, they’re right because you’re the kind of person who likes to keep certain bits private. Bottom line, you’re afraid someone is going to see your true colors and find they are not enough. When you fall in love, you overcome that fear of opening your heart. Oh and sex is everything to you. You’re into role playing, acrobatic positions, sex toys, you name it. You must have a partner who is a sexually inclined as you are.

Signs you’re most compatible with: Aries, Gemini, Libra and Aquarius.

Liberty is a must for you. That doesn’t mean you’ll cheat on your partner, it’s just that you need to feel like you’re in the relationship out of free will, without formalities or rules, and know that there is always a door open for you to go out and venture. Your perfect pair gives you the right amount of space and encourages you to be a better version of yourself.

Capricorn

Signs you’re most compatible with: Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn.

At first sight you might come off as conservative and stubborn, but deep down you’re full of emotions and you relate better to those who can see your true self. You crave someone who would accept you just the way you are *Bruno Mars voice*, with your thirst for success and your workaholic tendencies. You value maturity and hard work. Anyone who behaves like a child can keep it moving.

Aquarius

Signs you’re most compatible with: Gemini, Libra, Sagittarius and Aries.

Above everything else, you need a partner who believes in you, in your projects and on your vision. You need someone who will be ok waiting for you to finish your work (hopefully while they’re occupied on their own projects) and then having long, cerebral and existential conversations at dinner. You take your time opening up to a person. For you, friendship is the base of everything. Your true soulmate is someone you can be yourself with, laugh with, share dreams with and even bring those dreams to fruition with. Stimulation, playfulness and flirtiness are fundamental for you. Oh yeah, you’re also the boss, but you’re real subtle about it.

Signs you’re most compatible with: Cancer, Scorpio and Taurus.

Since you live in a fantasy world, you need a partner who can keep you grounded. You’re best with someone who is playful and creative, while also on top of things you tend to overlook. You need to feel inspired by your partner. You need someone who will lead you on a path of creation and discovery while making you feel like there is a divine connection between you two.

Neighbors Formed A Human Chain To Prevent This Man From Getting Deported And It’s The Most Beautiful Act Of Humanity I’ve Seen

Neighbors Formed A Human Chain To Prevent This Man From Getting Deported And It’s The Most Beautiful Act Of Humanity I’ve Seen

DailyKos / Twitter

Although the planned Trump ICE raids didn’t happen on the scale that many were expecting, there are still many heartbreaking stories of people being rounded up, arrested, detained, and even deported. However, in some cases entire communities have come together to fight back against ICE and to protect people from illegal arrests.

Case in point: this story out of Tennessee in which vecinos, advocates, and legal activists came together to protect a father and his son from an illegal ICE raid.

A group of vecinos created a literal human chain to protect their neighbor from ICE agents.

Hermitage, Tennessee community members rushed to a neighbor’s home to protect him and his son from Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents early Monday morning, at one point forming a human chain around the van where the family had been stuck so they could safely exit into their home.

It started early Monday morning when ICE officers followed a man’s van and tried to pull it over. After the van’s driver pulled into the driveway of a house, the officers blocked him in. The man remained inside the vehicle and alerted local advocates and neighbors, the affiliates said.

A crowd gathered, with witnesses recording the tense scene on their cell phones and bringing supplies to the parked vehicle. Neighbors brought gasoline to keep the van running and food and water for the man and his 12-year-old son, who were holed up inside. “While there were immigrant advocate community members present, it was clear that a major thrust of the citizen response was being driven by the immediate neighbors of the man and child in the van. … It was striking to watch neighbors deliver food, water, and gasoline to help their neighbor stay in his car,” Nashville City Council Bob Mendes said in a statement describing what he watched unfold

ICE officers eventually decided to leave “to de-escalate the situation,” ICE spokesman Bryan Cox told CNN. Coxsaid he wouldn’t say “who the agency’s target or targets may have been so as to not compromise a potential future operation that would seek to arrest the individual at a different time and place.”

People were full of emotion once the story broke.

With all the bad news in the world, many people have pretty much lost faith in ever hearing anything good again. So when the story of a group of people coming together to protect a man and his son from an ICE arrest broke, many were overwhelmed. It showed to many that even in the unlikeliest of places good people doing good things do still exist.

Like seriously, we dare you to watch this video and not at least get goosebumps.

When they form the chain so the man and his son can get to their car…omg it’s so powerful to watch a community spring into action.

Some took to Twitter to call for more of this community action.

Many advocacy organizations used this story as an example of community-driven efforts to fight back against Trump’s racist immigration policies. Actions like this one protected a family from an illegal arrest. The agent’s warrant wasn’t legally sufficient to arrest the man and had it not been for the quick action of the community, ICE would of gotten away with it.

Deanna From “Queer Eye” Was Harassed By Neighbors Who Told Her “The Mexicans Are Building Their Own Wall” But The Fab Five Helped Her Overcome Giving Us Another Reason To Love Them

Deanna From “Queer Eye” Was Harassed By Neighbors Who Told Her “The Mexicans Are Building Their Own Wall” But The Fab Five Helped Her Overcome Giving Us Another Reason To Love Them

Netflix

Netflix’s reboot of Queer Eye, featuring the Fab Five, has become a staple of America’s collective therapy. In the days since the fourth season has dropped, we’re all feeling more in touch with our feelings, but never have we been so attacked as when we met Chicana Deanna Muñoz. 

Deanna is a proud second generation Mexican-American who struggles with being “stuck” between two cultures. She doesn’t speak Spanish and can’t cook, making her feel like she’s “not Mexican enough”, and racism felt by her white neighbors makes her feel like she’s “not white enough.” Needless to say, that experience is so relatable for most of us second-generation Latino-Americans.

Meet Deanna Muñoz in all her J.Lo glory.

In fact, we call it brujería. Deanna had her first child when she was just 16 years old, and had to drop out of school. As her daughter started pouring her heart into creative writing, she wanted to find her a tutor. With none to be found, she founded the Latino Arts Festival non-profit foundation, to showcase and cultivate Latino culture in Kansas City.

We’re giving Queer Eye a 10/10 for shining a light on cultural Imposter Syndrome within the Latinx community.

Why did Queer Eye do such a good job of this? They created space for Deanna, an actual Chicana, to share her experience to America. So many of us have faced the surprise of both Latinos and non-Latinos alike when we answer that “what are you?” question. In a place like the U.S., where we often come from mixed-culture families, seeing the emotional effects played out on screen is validating AF.

Deanna’s family had to build a mini wall to reinforce water drainage on their yard, and a neighbor texted her husband saying, “The Mexicans are building their own wall.” 😡

Deanna’s family immediately felt uncomfortable in their own neighborhood. Our favorite Cubano, Karamo, made sure that Deanna went where the love is–and had her create her own welcome to the ‘hood.

And sons and daughters of immigrant parents everywhere sobbed to see the sacrifice.

Deanna’s parents immigrated to the U.S. to give Deanna a better life. So many of our parents or abuelos left their culture and language behind to give their children a new start in life. Seeing Deanna get that is what it’s all about. #NoWall

Meanwhile, Bobbi created a safe space for Latino artists in Kansas City by gifting Deanna an office space.

Deanna was working out of a tiny space in her home, with the third annual Latino Arts Festival upon her. Bobbi was able to create a studio space for Latinx artists, and made sure that Latinx artists influenced the design of the space. 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

There was also this Latino lesson: never reject abuela’s food. She’ll bring it to you anyway.

Twitter user Pamela Gocobachi shared, that “one of my fave moments from the new #QueerEye season was in  Deanna’s episode when @antoni learned the hard way that you never say no when abuelita asks you if you want to eat something– Martha’s face when he said “later”? Antoni’s face when she brought him food anyway? I DIED”

If you don’t speak Spanish but could relate to Deanna’s struggle to ask for help or take up any space at all, you inherited that from Latino culture.

Not one of us would question Deanna’s Latinidad, but we internalize so much shame for not living like we grew up in a Latin American country. Language and food are just two ways to define culture. 

Deanna relatably felt intimidated to be in the kitchen with the viejas.. Deanna felt like her Latin style was seen as “childish” in her board meetings and had trouble being taken seriously. These are the Latino-American experiences we have all experienced and they make us Latino.

If you’re feeling inspired, be like Chloe, and donate to the Latino Arts Foundation!

It doesn’t matter if you don’t speak Spanish and couldn’t roast a poblano for your life–your Latinidad is bigger than that. It’s everything that gives us the birthright to claim that identity, especially in a foreign land. Whether your culture looks like the art of cafecito or appreciating Bad Bunny even though you don’t understand every word he’s saying, somos Latino.

What we do to celebrate that is what we pass on to the next generation. Donate to the Latino Arts Foundation hoy.
