How Are You Most Likely Going To Die According To Your Zodiac Sign?

Most people would consult a crystal ball to find out just what death has in store. But, we know that your zodiac is just as likely to know what the circumstances of your death are going to be.

Are you ready for the cold, hard truth? Read on to find out just how you’ll kick the bucket …

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Instagram: @dianaahernandez

Aries, you’re a firecracker. You’ve got bucketloads of passion to spare. It’s no secret that you seek adventure in your life. Your death will definitely reflect this.

Most likely, you’ll end up dying in the fiery depths of an active volcano. How you got there, no-one will know. But they will know it was you, by the backpack you’ll leave behind. News reports will talk about how you couldn’t resist the thought of adding to your legacy by climbing your way to the top of a volcano.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Instagram: @themightybree

You’re a grounded, sensible sort, Taurus. People know you for your loyalty, and your stubbornness. To be honest, they can’t imagine you dying – you’re too reliable to just go and die on everyone.

Instagram: @juubjib

So, your death will take everyone by surprise. In short: it’ll be a car crash. You’ll be minding your own business, driving your car through the countryside, when out of nowhere, a bale of hay will roll its way toward you. You can guess the rest.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Instagram: @hautekittencosplay

Gemini, you enjoy being social and chatting to anyone who doesn’t mind not being able to get a word in edgeways. Your family wouldn’t be surprised if you died mid-sentence.

Instagram: @hollywoodcinemaclub

So how will you go? You’ll be singing your heart out at karaoke. Literally. Screaming the words to Despacito the way that you do is no good for anyone’s heart. Even though the ambulance mightn’t arrive on time, at least you’ll have something that’s a little different on your tombstone.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Instagram: @morales_photograph

Cancer, let’s face it, your defining characteristic is your sensitivity. You’re a romantic at heart. Those that know you would say that you’d most likely die from a broken heart.

Instagram: @cruisecanaveral

But, your death will be the opposite. It will be romantic. But still oh-so-devastating. Filled with wanderlust, and all sorts of other lust, you’ll be enjoying a cruise with your lover. The pair of you will inevitably find yourselves re-enacting that scene from Titanic. You know the one. As you yell joyfully off the front of the ship, your lover will realise they won’t be able to hold you, and you’ll end up in the water, lost to the seas.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Instagram: @danielagomezmx

Leo, you’re a bit of a drama queen. You like being the centre of attention, and the centre of the party. Your friends would guess that you’d most likely die with a glass of sangria in one hand, and a cigarette in the other.

Instagram: @tunamakesfive

This means that your death will be kind of tragic, in its own way. You’ll most likely die alone, surrounded by cats. Which is fine, since your cats are pretty much like family, anyway. The only problem will be that no-one will be able to ask the cats just what exactly happened. Although, the spilled bag of kibble and the ladder on the floor might give it away.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Instagram: @missisgerda

Virgo, with your penchant for perfectionism, most people would guess that you’d live forever. You’re the type to follow a strict, healthy diet, exercise right, and meditate your way through life. You’d think that would grant you some sort of immunity to dying, right?

Instagram: @pencils_at_dawn

So your death will be unremarkable. To be honest, most people would die for a chance to have a peaceful death like yours. You’ll be old, surrounded by family and friends, and will most likely pass in your sleep.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Instagram: @hotandsweetladies

Libra, you’re one hella busy babe. You’re usually juggling 10,000 things at once, and you’re pretty good at doing it, too!

Instagram: @traveldiaries07

You death will be a big mystery. One day you’ll just vanish. You’ll be the subject of a best-selling book, and extremely popular podcast. People will speculate whether you’ve really died, or whether you’re now sunning yourself on a nice beach somewhere, chuckling over the commentary in the media.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Instagram: @paulamanzz

You’re a bit of a mystery, Scorpio. You’re loyal, but also competitive to a fault. This all comes down to your intensity, and you invest a lot in your relationships.

Instagram: @svenngaarden

Scorpio, with your insatiable appetite for sex, did you expect to kick the bucket any other way? While it’s rare, it’s entirely possible to die from having a really vigorous bonk. At least you’re going out with a … bang.

Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)

Instagram: @glamour_shoprd

Sagittarius, it’s hard to tell what defines you more: your curiosity and energy, or your serious case of wanderlust. Extroverted and optimistic are two words that people use when they describe you. You’re known for being a chill, fun-loving person. Most would think that you’d die from being too relaxed.

Instagram: @bhagyashree.online

But it’s exactly your sense of fun that’ll see you kick the bucket, Sagittarius. Just like the Greek philosopher Chrysippus of Soli, you’ll most likely die of laughter. Although, you probably won’t be laughing for the same reason he did – it was after he watched a donkey trying to eat figs.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)

Instagram: @didinspire

Capricorn, you are known for being controlled, conscientious and practical. You’re disciplined and hard-working. Most would say that you’re dedicated to becoming a success. In fact, they’d guess that that would be your downfall, and they’d almost be right.

Instagram: @av.cihanesin

Rather, you’ll most likely die trying to prove a point. Think along the lines of Clement Vallandigham, a 19th century lawyer, who accidentally shot himself dead trying to prove that a victim could have accidentally shot himself dead. At least you’ll die right, Capricorn.

Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)

Instagram: @cihansimsekvideo

Aquarius, you’re intelligent, quirky, and friendly. We know that, at your core, you’re a humanitarian. You can’t resist the opportunity to do a good deed.

Instagram: @worldpackers

Which is why we know that even if we warn you not to volunteer overseas anymore, you’re probably not going to listen to us. After all, you’d rather die knowing you were doing it in the name of bettering humanity, right? Just watch out for the food. It’s not going to be gentle on your insides.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Instagram: @ashes.x.o

As a water sign, you’ve got sensitivity covered, Pisces. You care about your friends and family deeply. But, unfortunately, that’s not going to stop your death.

Instagram: @slon.yulka

Pisces, we won’t beat around the bush. You’re going to drown. But not in the way you expect. Beware of glasses of water from here, because they’re not your friend. Sure, hydration is important, but so is avoiding suspicious drinks.

Here’s How The Editor Of The New York Times Crossword Puzzle Tried To Excuse The Use Of The Word ‘Beaner’

For some people, the New York Times crossword puzzle is the greatest rush. It’s almost like a weekly ritual. They can’t start the day without finishing it. However, the puzzle featured on New Year’s Day had one word that had some people, mostly Latinos, doing a double take.

On Jan. 1, the crossword puzzle in The New York Times featured the word “beaner.”

The hint for the word “Beaner” was another way of saying “Pitch to the head, informally.” The correct word would have been “beanball,” unless they are calling a player who throws a “beanball” a beaner, though referring to a player as a beaner is rare. So how could the writers of this crossword puzzle not understand that?

If you Google “what is a beaner?” there is no other result than it is an offensive word to describe a Mexican or a person of Mexican descent.

After much uproar, the New York Times did issue somewhat of an apology via Twitter. Editor Will Shortz said that “Neither Joel [Fagliano] nor I had ever heard the slur before – and I don’t know anyone who would use it. Maybe we live in rarefied circles.” In other words, they live in exclusive worlds where Latinos do not frequent. “Meanwhile, for any solver who was offended by 2-Down in today’s puzzle, I apologize,” he added.

The apology went on to say that the New York Times crossword puzzle has used words in the past that some may regard as offensive but are actual words.

Shortz said that they have used slang words like “GO OK” which means to proceed all right, but also is a horrible slur to describe a person of Philippine, Korean, or Vietnamese descent. He also references the word “Chink” which actually means something like a “chink in one’s armor” but is mostly known as a derogatory way to describe an Asian person.

A spokesperson for The New York Times went further and acknowledged that the word “beaner” is an offensive term.

“Tuesday’s Crossword puzzle included an entry that was offensive and hurtful,” a spokesperson for The New York Times told TheWrap. “It is simply not acceptable in The New York Times Crossword and we apologize for including it.”

Here’s what people on social media had to say about the appalling way the NY Times used this offensive word.

It is a very well-recognized word in the U.S.

People expected a lot more from The New York Times.

It is truly perplexing readers and non-readers alike. It is a situation so many people never expected.

People are clearly pissed.

If Latinos felt underrepresented in the New York Times before, this certainly isn’t helping matters.

Girl, bye.

Can’t wait to see the words they use for tomorrow’s crossword puzzle.
