What You Search For The Most On Google, By Zodiac Sign Astrology

I love searching for things on Google.

I have so many tabs open on my phone and my computer because I’m always thinking of things I want to search for later when I’m free. 

So, really, using Google is like writing down all my random thoughts and questions until I can come back to them at another time for me.

Plus, don’t tell anyone, but I prefer using Google to look up a word or current event to brush up on what it is instead of having to ask someone to explain it to me. That’s my secret to looking smart and in the know (just kidding).

We use Google for a number of things – Google really does have it all.

There are certainly other browsers out there that people might prefer over this one, but we can all agree that Google is one of the most popular search engines there is. One of the things I like best about human behavior and astrology is that everyone is different in their own way.

Sure, I (an Aquarius) might use Google to keep track of all my weird questions, like why bees don’t have lungs and why does my cat think playtime is at 4 in the morning, but another zodiac sign might like using Google for something more academic and educational or fun.

No matter what you’re searching for on Google, one thing almost always tends to be true: We’re a lot more honest on Google than we are anywhere else on the web, like social media.

According to a study done by author and scientist Seth Stephens-Davidowitz, people finished the phrase “my husband is…” a lot differently on Facebook (where everyone can see what you’re posting) than on Google (where your searches are anonymous.

He noted that, when people don’t have those extra “eyes” around to see what you’re posting or searching for, they tend to be a lot more honest, even when that’s not always such a good thing. In addition to the totally innocent and frank things we search for on Google, people also search for disturbing things (duh).

Because of that anonymity, there’s less worry that we can get caught by others with what we search for. This isn’t the norm, obviously, but there are definitely people out there who aren’t using Google for innocent reasons. Long story short, our Google searches can say a lot more about us than we realize, both the good and the bad. Interesting, huh?

Here is what you’re likely to search for most on Google, based on your zodiac sign.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

“Best workout apps”

You’re most likely to search for the best workout apps on Google, Aries. You love to stay active and try new things, and having an arsenal of workout apps that you love to use makes it easier for you to stay healthy when you’re on the go.

The type of workout apps you like best are ones that help you track your steps and nutrition, ones that help you make your own at-home workout plan, and ones that help you find the best studios and gyms in your area. If it’s recommended on Google, you probably have it on your phone.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

“How to keep track of my finances”

Being financially stable is a goal you’re always striving for, Taurus, so it’s no surprise that you’re most likely to search for ways to keep track of your finances on Google. You definitely try to be frugal with your money, but you’re human, and you deal with higher-than-normal bills and splurge buys just like the rest of us.

Rather than hiding your credit card in the back of the freezer, you like looking for easier ways to keep track of your finances so that you don’t get blindsided by your bills next month. Google is king when it comes to looking for helpful information, and you like how easy it is to find what you’re looking for online.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

“Best beach reads”

As an air sign, Gemini, communication in all forms is important to you. That’s why you always have your phone in your hand and that’s why you’re constantly using it to keep yourself up to date on what to read, listen to, and watch right now.

You’re most likely to search for the best beach reads on Google. Even if you’re not technically planning on going to the beach, there’s always a good “best books” list out every year to keep you busy. You like to search for the best podcasts and TV shows, too. You never know what you’ll discover next!

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

“What’s coming to Netflix next month”

As the crab of the zodiac, your home is your domain, Cancer. That’s why you want to make it as comfortable as possible for you. This is where all of your favorite things are, and this is where you feel most – pardon the pun – at home.

You are most likely to search for what’s coming to Netflix (or your favorite streaming app) next month. Once you have your schedule lined up, you can whip up your famous homemade lasagna, invite your BFFs over for dinner and drinks, and watch what’s new on Netflix together. For you, it’s about bringing the people you love together for some fun.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

“How to make time for my side projects”

You’re a hustler, Leo. You’re so busy with your job, family commitments, and time with friends that you barely have time for yourself. Sure, you try to schedule some much-needed me time into your day, but before you know it, you’re exhausted and the day is over!

That’s why you’re most likely to search for ways to make time for your side projects on Google. You need some help because you have so many good idea but not enough hours in the day to make it all happen.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

“How to bring good vibes to my house”

Just like your body, Virgo, your home is your temple. You want to know that everything you do for your home is helping bring positive vibes, happiness, and health to it – just like you do for your body.

You’re most likely to search for ways to bring good vibes to your house on Google. This might mean using certain techniques, like feng shui, to each room, but it might also mean switching out harsh chemicals for more organic cleaning supplies. You eat clean yourself, you believe your home should get the same care and love.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

“DIY self-care products”

You love the careful routine that goes into self-care and me time, Libra, but you’re not always down to spend a good chunk of your paycheck on expensive beauty tools, face masks, and trips to the spa – as much as you would like to.

You know that there are a lot of other things your paycheck needs to go towards, which is why you’re most likely to search for DIY self-care products on Google. Hey, just because you don’t want to break the bank to look and feel good doesn’t mean you can’t get crafty at home and follow your same routine for half the price! Smart and savvy, Libra.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

“What does a trustworthy person look like”

As a Scorpio, you like to keep your cards close to your chest when meeting or interacting with new people. Until you get to know someone better, you tend to be reserved and quiet. This is just your way of feeling out the situation and getting comfortable with someone new in your life.

When you want to know from Google what a trustworthy person looks like, it’s not because you’re worried the people in your life are fakes. You want to make sure that you’re making the right call to bring new people into your life. Not everyone understands it, but this is your method.

Sagittarius, you’re always on the lookout for the next best adventure you can go on with your BFFs. Your favorite way to bond with your favorite people is to schedule a trip you can all take together.

And because there are always new and unexplored places featured all the time, this is a recurring Google search for you.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

“Leadership tips”

You always try to be the best leader you can be, Capricorn. Everyone who knows you knows that you never rest – you’re always on your grind. It’s what makes so many people look up to you, after all! We all wish we could be like you.

That's why you’re most likely to search for leadership tips on Google. Sure, you have some techniques up your sleeve, but it’s always nice to have a little cheat sheet when you need it, too. Plus, you never know what nuggets of gold you’ll find when you’re perusing your favorite leadership websites!

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

“Top Spotify playlists”

Music is a huge influence in your life, Pisces. As a water sign, you are always so bombarded with other people’s emotions and problems that it’s hard for you to separate yourself from it all. When you do have a free moment alone, you like to plug into your music and really shut the world out.

You’re always looking for new songs and artists to add to your list of favorites, plus Spotify always has the best playlists for every mood and day. This frequent Google search is really one of your top go-to ways to relax and get out of your head for a bit.
