Zodiac, Self

Are you one of those people who camp out in front of a store so you’re the first in line to buy the newest version of a new tech product? Do you constantly have your eyes glued to your phone, your computer, or your tablet?

If so, you could be one of the zodiac signs who are addicted to technology, and astrology may be the primary reason for your addiction. Technology addictions don’t have to be centered on a physical object; if you spend too much time on the internet, that counts as a tech addiction.

One of the problems with having an addiction to technology is that you can find yourself shut off from the world. You start to engage in real life contact with people less and less, you may not leave your house for long periods of time, and you can become withdrawn and anti-social.

Socializing with people is a muscle like anything else, and the less you flex it the more it can become atrophied and stuck. If you never look up from your device, you can’t make eye contact, you miss a lot of what’s going on around you, and when someone tries to talk to you, it may throw you off and make you feel uncomfortable.

There needs to be a balance — for every hour you spend on a device, you need to spend that much time or more communicating in real time with people, going outside, or moving your body. 

1. AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarians love technology. They keep up on all the new advances, are always studying technology, and can't wait to get the newest version of a device. You probably know at least one Aquarius who could build a computer from scratch.

It would be very challenging to live without some form of technology for very long. Sure, they love nature and going on hikes, but don't take away their internet, video games, or computer/tablet/phone or Aquarius will go through withdrawals.

2. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Geminis love the newest gadgets, devices, and technology, but they love the internet most of all. It's not unlikely for a Gemini to lose track of how much time they've spent online. They may go check information on a website and have hours go by. Sometimes they don't even notice that they've skipped meals, are thirsty or even need to use the bathroom.

When a Gemini is in a situation where their phone is shut off and they don't have any access to the internet, they will get cravings. They need to be more aware of the time they spend in front of a screen and try to limit it so it doesn't take up all their time.

3. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Any new app that's trending, you can be sure that Sagittarius has heard of it and probably used it. They love new things and they love the feeling that they're on the cutting edge, especially when it comes to technology.

Sagittarians love to be out in the world doing things and they almost always are using their phones to document their adventures. They use apps to book their travel, make new friends, find out the best places to go to, and for information. They are dependent on technology to enhance their experiences and to create a record of them.

4. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries also are addicted to all forms of technology and will try almost anything. Since Aries tend to have a lot of energy, they try to use their devices to multitask which doesn't always work for them. Driving while looking up information on the internet isn't a good way to multitask.

They tend to experience a high when they're online or using their computers/phones/tablets. Aries love technology so much that sometimes they use it as a way to numb whatever pain they're feeling. What is most concerning is that they must continue to increase their exposure to technology for that feeling of pleasure to be achieved.

5. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpios can get obsessed, so if they get hooked on technology/internet, they will get completely sucked in and may find themselves without a social life. Isolation can be a result of too much time spent online or too focused on devices.

For sensitive Scorpios, technology can seem safer than the real world. They can hide behind a persona and reveal things about themselves without risk of being exposed, or so they think. They have a hard time forgiving and forgetting, so it wouldn't be unlike them to cyberstalk an ex via all their social media.
