guilty pleasure zodiac signs

Because we all deserve to be a little bit selfish sometimes.

The Zodiac is a study in contrasts. 

For every light trait your sign might have, there's a dark one. For every noble trait, there is a petty one. 

People aren't perfect, and the Zodiac is proof. You don't have to look much further than your daily horoscope to know that every sign has its own special brand of pitfall. 

Astrologers are always eager to talk to folks about the good things about their signs, but not so much the bad. 

Luckily, I'm not your average astrologer. If there's anything I love more than clean sheets and chocolate bars, it's dishing on the dark side of the Zodiac.

So look up your sign, and we'll get started, breaking down your most likely guilty pleasure according to the Zodiac! 

Aries (March 21 - April 19)


​You like to pretend that what people think doesn't matter to you, you busy, vibrating little Aries, you. But somewhere way down deep you want your awesomeness seen, acknowledged, and craved by others. That's why you've got a secret Tinder account. You don't swipe right to meet anyone, you swipe right to make sure your awesomeness is being fully appreciated.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)


You know when people talk about obnoxious and pot-stirring internet commenters? They're talking about you, Taurus.

You'd NEVER vote for Donald Trump, but you have no issue arguing with folks who are against him online.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)


Gemini, you're the perfect party guest. You love to be in touch, to communicate, to part of the scene. You bring life to every event you attend, and the powers that be love you for it. That's why your guiltiest pleasure is disconnecting. You shut off your phone, leave the iPad at home and head out in your car for a private adventure for a party of one.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)


Cancers are the mothers of everyone they know. They aren't just homebodies, home and family are their LIFE. It's hard to make a Cancer take a night off, but if you ply them with rose and put someone else in charge of planning an evening out so they can shake their booty on the dance floor, chagrined though they might be they'll thank for it.

Virgos are hard workers. They can't help it. Nothing makes them happier than crossing an item off their to-do list. They've got roughly eight hundred vacation days piled up at work.

You, lovely Libra, are all about balance (you know, what with the scales and all).

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)


You're a water sign, baby, and to make matters even more complex, your sign is very closely associated with sex and death. Yeah. Your life is deep and dark and complex. So it makes sense that your guilty pleasure involves a three-hour binge watching of whatever fine programming Bravo has to offer. Get shallow, it's good for your pores.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)


You are the most compassionate sign in the Zodiac. You are an ear for your friends, and you often but them before yourself. You're sweet and kind and always in the middle of the social huddle.
