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.

Cancer

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.

Scorpio

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.

From That Picture With George W. Bush To Dakota Johnson’s Memeworthy Confrontation— A Timeline Of Ellen DeGeneres’ Downfall

Last Thursday, American comedian, television host, and Finding Dory actress Ellen DeGeneres penned a personal memo to the employees of her talk show in an effort to address recent allegations of workplace toxicity.

“My name is on the show and everything we do and I take responsibility for that,” she said while addressing recent complaints about her contributions to a toxic work environment on the show. “Alongside Warner Bros, we immediately began an internal investigation and we are taking steps, together, to correct the issues. As we’ve grown exponentially, I’ve not been able to stay on top of everything and relied on others to do their jobs as they knew I’d want them done. Clearly some didn’t. That will now change and I’m committed to ensuring this does not happen again.”

Writing about what she has learned in recent weeks, DeGeneres vowed to push herself “to learn and grow.”

“We all have to be more mindful about the way our words and actions affect others, and I’m glad the issues at our show were brought to my attention,” she went on to write. “I promise to do my part in continuing to push myself and everyone around me to learn and grow. It’s important to me and to Warner Bros. that everyone who has something to say can speak up and feels safe doing so.”

DeGeneres’s letter comes at a time when serious allegations have been made about her and the executive producers on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” Still, while current complaints have gone viral recently, they only seem to be part of an upset over the comedian’s behavior that has been years in the making

Check out the timeline of her downward spiral below:

December 2018 – The New York Times publishes the “Ellen DeGeneres Is Not as Nice as You Think” headline

In a New York Times profile, reporter Jason Zinoman examined the comedian’s happy television host persona against her 2018 Netflix stand-up special, titled “Relatable”. With a headline that read “Ellen DeGeneres Is Not as Nice as You Think,” Zinoman wrote, “In sharp contrast to her public image as everyone’s good friend, happy to listen, she presents herself — with tongue in cheek — as cartoonishly aloof and indifferent, stuck in a privileged bubble, cracking several jokes, for instance, about her fabulous wealth.”

January 2019 – Defense of Kevin Hart and dismissal of his disappointed fans as “haters”

Soon after comedian and actor, Kevin Hart was ousted from his position as an Academy Awards host due to a series of discovered homophobic tweets and jokes he’d made, DeGeneres, invited him to come on her show.

During her interview with him, DeGeneres urged Hart to ignore the backlash he’d received and dismissed his critics as “haters.” Soon after, she appealed to the academy to hire him for the Oscars once again much to her supporters’ chagrin.

October 2019 – DeGeneres takes a photo with George W. Bush

In the fall of 2019, DeGeneres was pictured with former president George W. Bush at a Dallas Cowboys-Green Bay Packers game. The photo sparked backlash and expressions of disappointment online. After all, during his presidency, Bush pushed for bans on same-sex marriage.
DeGeneres belittled negative comments about the photo writing, “People were upset. They thought, ‘Why is a gay Hollywood liberal sitting next to a conservative Republican president?’ “Here’s the thing: I’m friends with George Bush. In fact, I’m friends with a lot of people who don’t share the same beliefs that I have. We’re all different, and I think that we’ve forgotten that that’s okay that we’re all different.”

November 2019 – Dakota Johnson calls DeGeneres out for lying on her own show

Known as the incident that might have first brought down Ellen, Johnson’s 2019 appearance on the comedian’s daytime show undoubtedly opened the floodgates. During an interview with the Fifty Shades Of Grey actress, DeGeneres commented about not being invited to her 30th birthday party asking “How was the party? I wasn’t invited.” Johnson was quick to defend herself in an awkward but honest moment saying “Actually, no, that’s not the truth, Ellen. You were invited.”

Oof.

March 2020 – And of course, that viral Twitter post

Months after Johnson’s appearance, a Twitter thread posted by “Gilmore Guys” podcast co-host Kevin T. Porter went viral after he petitioned for negative stories about DeGeneres’s behavior in “exchange for food bank donations.”

The tweet reeled in over 16K comments and a whole lot of horrifying stories about the actress.

Queer People Are Shouting Their Gratitude For Naya Rivera’s Trailblazing Character Santana Lopez

Queer People Are Shouting Their Gratitude For Naya Rivera’s Trailblazing Character Santana Lopez

There are few queer characters the people can point to in the past as being someone that changed their lives. Santana Lopez, Naya Rivera’s character on “Glee,” is one of them. Even if you’ve never watched “Glee,” Rivera’s character touched you because of how that representation is so important and empowering.

Naya Rivera’s place in LGBTQ+ media representation will be her long-lasting legacy.

Rivera brought us Santana Lopez, a queer Latina navigating the world of high school in a small town. For many, this kind of representation was so rare and often poorly done that Rivera’s command of the role was impactful. You didn’t have to be an avid viewer of the show to understand and appreciate the magnitude of Santana Lopez.

Rivera brought our experience directly to the mainstream and forced our own classmates to think about the way they saw queer people.

Rivera’s ability to capture the awkwardness and terror of being a closeted queer student in high school still resonates. It is a piece of nostalgia that is so deeply ingrained in queer people that it’s hard not to be emotional about Rivera’s sudden and tragic death.

Who can forget the moment Santana used “Landslide” to tell Brittany that she loved her.

The emotion of a love that is not easy to confess and live authentically is real. Ask any queer person you know about coming to terms with her sexuality in high school and you will hear about the fear and excitement. You will hear about the strategic allyships that epitomize the constant battle between being open and staying safe.

Rivera was more than an actress, she was an ally and advocate during her time on “Glee.”

Season 2, when Rivera’s feelings for Brittany (played by Heather Morris) grew, aired from 2010 to 2011. It was a time when marriage equality was not nationwide. Some states still barred same-sex couples from adopting children. Yet, queer high school and college students had a chance to see their experience mirrored because of Rivera’s insistence.

Rivera’s death is a major loss for the queer community that got our strength and courage from her.

Knowing that all of the “Glee” fans were rooting for and falling in love with Santana Lopez gave us a chance to breathe and feel accepted. Adding her Latina heritage was so important. Queer people of color, who have faced increased scrutiny from their own families, had someone representing them completely and sincerely.

Demi Lovato paid tribute by remembering the time she played Santana Lopez’s girlfriend.

The queer Latina love was not lost on fellow queer Latinos. Lovato herself was not out about her sexuality at the time and she admits in her post that Rivera inspired her. Rivera’s efforts to give the character an accurate and respectful storyline will forever be praised and admired as a fully realized manifestation of our experience.

Thank you for being someone we didn’t know we needed, Naya.

Our hearts are broken and our eyes are wet. We send love and hope to your loved ones. Rest in power, mija. We love you and will never forget what you did for our community.
