The Zodiac Sign You Act Like The Most When You're Drunk unsplash

When you're drunk, your personality probably changes a little bit – maybe not a lot, but you probably get a little more confident or silly or affectionate after a few drinks.

I know I do. And I know my friends do, too.

Alcohol has a way of affecting people (obviously) to make another part of them emerge.



Maybe you're shy in every other situation, but as soon as you start drinking, you want to dance on tables and finally talk to that cute guy you made heart eyes at when you first walked into the bar.

If liquid courage is literally your liquid courage, then go for it!

Of course, it's always important to note that you should be drinking with your brain, but you also can't deny that when you're out with friends after a long week at work, a strong drink always tastes good.

I'm a wine fan myself – maybe more like a super fan – but if I'm going to drink at home, it's gotta be wine.


When I'm out with friends, I tend to gravitate towards whiskey or beer.

I don't know why I also associate those two drinks with going out with people, but to me, wine never really feels like a "going out" drink... not unless going out means going out to dinner (which is then wine again).

But if I'm at a bar, then it's whiskey and beer all the way.

That said, whiskey is not like beer in the least, which means I have to be careful just how much I drink of it when I'm out on the town.


Whiskey has definitely made me say super weird things to my Lyft drivers before, but it also probably helped me forget exactly what it was I said, so maybe that's a good thing.

When I drink, I definitely get chattier – and more affectionate. It's like the alcohol is giving me so much warmth that I'm just ready to snuggle up on someone in the middle of the club. Classic Taurus move.

When I'm not drinking, however, I'm the kind of (Aquarius) person who doesn't like if people get too close to me on the bus... which is nearly impossible when the bus is always crowded. Hey, I like my personal space!


My point is, getting drunk changes my personality into a whole other zodiac sign! And my zodiac sign isn't the only one who applies to this, either.

When I think about the zodiac signs when they're sober, each one of them has specific traits and quirks that make that exactly what their horoscope says they are on the surface.

But when these same zodiac signs are drunk, all of that goes out the window.



You could have Pisces acting like Aries and Sagittarius acting like Capricorn – it sounds like madness! But it just might describe you when you're drunk.

There's certainly nothing wrong with your personality changing when you've been drinking, but it can be hilarious to see you and your friends acting totally different than usual.

Keep reading to find out your drunk personality's zodiac sign – or the zodiac sign you're most like when you're drunk, according to astrology.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

When you get drunk, Aries, you’re both crazy fun and a little dangerous. You’re the type of person to take someone up on their equally-drunk-as-you offer to skinny dip or do something else questionable that even a sober person might reconsider.


But you’re also the friend that makes all the memories… well, the ones you remember, that is. Where did that bruise come from? Oh, Aries had us all doing something crazy last night… I think.

Drunk Aries is impulsive and adventurous – much like the beloved Sagittarius. You channel this sign most when you’re drunk because of how inhibited you can get when you drink. Yes, you can be uninhibited sober, too, but in a more Sagittarius-like way when you’re drunk.

And it definitely helps to have the Aries courage backing this adventurous behavior because no one else would be able to do what you do.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Drunk Taurus is a looove machine. Only half joking. If you could do a costume change to fit your personality once drunk, you would probably opt for a velvet smoking jacket or a silk gown with fur on the edges.

Pair that with your glass of brandy and we’ve got the makings of a flirty drunk. Even if you’ve had a bad day up until drinking, you suddenly turn into feel-good, smiling, happy Taurus.

The sign you embody most when drunk is Leo. You’re here for a good time and you’re gonna make it count, gosh darn it. You’re the friend who buys the good champagne and gets affectionate – you like the finer things in life and if you’re going to enjoy some expensive bubbly, so is all of your closest friends.


You might hate that hangover tomorrow, but tonight, you’re ready to flirt and be the life of the party.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

You’re a chatty person to begin with, Gemini, but when you’re drunk, you get even chattier. That dry mouth you’re experiencing right now? It’s not all the booze, it’s because you just have sooo much to say right now!

You want to be the center of attention, but alas, the drunk mouth is just a lot of slurring and weird stories. Does that stop you? No! You just need to find someone who will (attempt to) listen. Not only do you go into a jabber-jaw mode when you’re drunk, but you’re also the one in the squad who magically makes new BFFs in the bathroom at the club.


You can go in alone, but you somehow come out with three new besties who just so, totally get you right now. This is a classic Libra move, by the way – being able to make friends anywhere, anytime. You might not remember each other tomorrow, but the pics on your phone will sure remind you! Selfies, anyone?!

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

When you drink, Cancer, you like to do it at home because as soon as you start feeling tipsy, you want to crawl into bed where you know you'll be comfortable. Screw whoever said you had to get dressed up and go out to drink!


It's definitely a good idea to invite some friends over if you're going to get drunk, but even if you decide to drink alone, nothing is better than doing it in the comfort of your home.

You are the embodiment of Taurus when you get drunk. As soon as you start feeling that delicious warmness fill your body, you want comfort food, a warm bed, and a good movie. Doesn't anything with melted cheese on it sounds sooo good right now?!

Yeah, that's what I thought. The only thing that could be better is if your favorite pizza place delivered food right to your bed... if only!

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leo, you're certainly no stranger to having a good time when you're out with friends, but when you're drunk, you crank that fun to a level 10. You're the drunk friend all your other drunk friends can't help but laugh at because you're always starting shenanigans in public that everyone loves.


The sign you're most like when you're drunk is Aries. When you start drinking, your lovey-dovey (and crazy confident) attitude comes out in full effect. You're the friend who will do karaoke in front of an entire bar and then kiss a stranger – all within a few hours.

Do you care? Heck no! You just want to have a good time with your friends and if that means embarrassing yourself by singing the words to a Britney Spears song wrong in front of people you don't know, then bring it on.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo, when you drink, you do it responsibly, which is more than a lot of us can say. You're not someone who tends to get blackout drunk or turn into a hot mess because you don't really feel like that makes your night any better.


You want to actually remember your night, duh. But just because you're responsible doesn't mean you're boring and doesn't mean you don't get drunk. When you do get sloshed, you turn into Capricorn – also known as the mom friend.

You might be drunker than your squad, but you always try your hardest to make sure that you leave the bar with everyone intact and make sure that everyone gets home safe. It's a hilarious sight to see the drunk leading the drunk, but you're still very responsible when you're wasted.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

When you go out with friends, Libra, you go out in style. You like getting dressed up, spending money on the good drinks, and having a blast. You might not always get crazy drunk, but you definitely like to get tipsy. And when you get tipsy, your inner Aquarius comes out.


Drunk you wants to be the best friend you can be to your squad. You're the one who ends up treating your friends to drinks, grabbing a Lyft to Taco Bell at 3 in the morning, and suggesting a huge sleepover afterward – because who doesn't love drunk sleepovers?! You can also be seen holding your BFF's hand all night because that's what drunk besties do, right? Right!

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpio, you like drinking because it gives you a chance to get out of your shell and act a little crazy, even if only for a few hours. You definitely aren't known for opening up to people about your feelings and personal life (unless you're opening up to your closest friend), but when you drink, all of that cautiousness goes out the window.


Drunk Scorpio is verrry similar to sober Gemini. You're much chattier than usual, but instead of just talking about nothing, you can get pretty personal. Anyone who comes over to you mid-conversation might even hear something crazy like, "And that's why me and my cat aren't speaking to each other right now."

Wait, what?! Better yet, you're also known as the friend who will make out with anyone, anywhere. Drunk Scorpio is so fun!

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Drunk Sagittarius tends to be a much more mellow person than sober Sagittarius. When you're sober, you want to go crazy and try something new, but when you're drunk, the only new thing you want to try is taking shots with your left hand instead of your right.


It's a very different atmosphere around you when you're shwasted, but definitely not in a bad way at all. You can embody Pisces during these times. You get very cuddly – hugs, kisses, high fives, whatever – when you're drunk and you also get almost too excited about drinking games.

But instead of starting a game that everyone knows how to play, you like making up some crazy game that even a sober person would have a hard time following. You just want people to use their brains, but honey, no one's in their right mind when they're drunk.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorn, you are the kind of person that can be seen drinking as much as everyone else in your squad, yet you never act like you're drunk at all – not even tipsy! No one is exactly sure how you do it, but you're the friend who keeps everyone else in perspective.


When it feels like things are getting out of control, you're around to rein everyone in before things get messy. This behavior of yours is very much like Virgo's behavior. Of course, just because you're not a sloppy drunk doesn't mean you don't have any fun.

It just means that you know how to not embarrass yourself in public. You'll do shots and dance at the bar just like everyone else – just without all the terrible photos as proof you got way too drunk the next day. How do you always look so flawless?!

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

If anyone could be dared into drinking some crazy concoction that is probably not suitable for human consumption, it would be you, drunk Aquarius. You know that you'll probably regret your actions later, but if it makes your friends laugh, you don't care how embarrassing you look.


All you care about is having a good time with your closest friends and getting drunk, of course. You're also known for getting into trouble with "new friends" when you're drunk. And by new friends I mean people you meet in bars who immediately have your tongue down their throats.

You don't even care who you're kissing as long as you're kissing someone because that's just the kind of drunk person you are. This is very Scorpio of you and it happens so often that your squad can't help but shrug and let you do you.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces, you are one of those drunkies who is always full of surprises. Will you be crying one minute and laughing the next? Will you pull a chicken nugget out of your bra when your squad didn't even see you eating anything in the first place?


Who knows! You've got a lot of tricks up your sleeve and you make everyone's night that much more fun. But even though you can get a little messy (and who doesn't when they're drunk?), you still make sure that you take care of your friends at the end of the night.

You're a lot like Cancer in these moments. You like being in charge of the way too drunk friends because you know that after a night out, nothing is better than a comfy bed and a soft blanket. Just having you around always makes your squad that much happier because they know Pisces will tuck them in at the end of the night. Awwww!
