The Kind Of Friend You Are, According To Astrology

Contrary to popular belief, astrology does not start and end with your sun sign!

Horoscopes

We each have placements in more than one astrological sign and therefore exhibit characteristics of several signs. Our placements in each of the planets, signs and houses are just as important as our sun sign placement (the placement that most people refer to when they ask, "What's your sign?"). In addition to the sun sign, there is also a moon sign, an ascendant or rising sign, and even a Venus sign. In particular, the Venus sign is an area you would explore in your astrology chart to learn more about the way you approach friendships and relationships.


Knowing your Venus placements can serve as an extremely helpful guide in navigating your friendships and relationships.

Do you have an extremely large social circle, or are you more of a "no new friends" type? Are you a social butterfly, or are you extremely selective about who you let into your friends group? Have you ever been told, "I didn't like you at first, but you're actually really cool!"? Your Venus sign can reveal a lot about your social tendencies, despite how your sun sign may make you appear to others on the surface!

Here's what your your Venus sign reveals about the way you approach friendships and relationships:

Venus In Aries

Enthusiastic, impulsive and active, you are fun-loving and a fierce defender of your friends. You are not about the games! You are a straight-shooter who is attracted to direct, fiery and assertive people and relationships.

Venus In Taurus

Your favorite pastimes involve checking out new restaurants and spending time with a stable, core group of friends and family. You're not eager to just let anyone into your friend group! You need stability and lots of physical affection and consistency in relationships.

Venus In Gemini

You LOVE humor and jokes! You love to spend time with people who don't take themselves too seriously and who you could enjoy great conversation with. You are the friend that people can talk to about ANYTHING.

Venus In Cancer

You are the mommy of your friend group, regardless of your gender identity! Friends can count on you to nurture them, to comfort them and to express sympathy in times of need. Sentimental and nurturing, you express your love by being in tune with and caring for the needs of others.

Venus In Leo

You are the life of the party! Your friends admire your fashion sense and your dynamic personality. You love to court and to be courted. You pride yourself on being a memorable, irreplaceable friend and romantic partner.

Venus In Virgo

You are very particular about who you let into your friend group. People who are too brash or loud can be a turn-off. You love helping others and you show your love and support for friends through small acts of service.

Venus In Libra

You are the peacemaker of your friends group. A graceful social butterfly, you innately know exactly how to make the people around you comfortable. You make a special effort to make sure that new members of your friends and family group feel welcome.

Venus In Scorpio

Loyalty is a non-negotiable for you! You only want people who will ride for you the way you ride for them. You don't easily let people into your friends circle because not many people are worthy of your devotedness and undying loyalty. You are turned off by superficiality and are attracted to intelligent and deep people.

Venus In Sagittarius

You are the best travel partner a friend could have! You are a "ride-or-die" type who is always down for action or to join your friends in pursuing their wildest dreams or adventures. You are extremely fun-loving and are attracted to those who can help you expand your horizons.

Venus In Capricorn

You are about your business! You like to surround yourself with people who can talk business and investments. You don't have time for petty drama. You are an alpha who prefers to spend time with other people who carry mature, focused energy. You are a boss who doesn't want to be around someone who may distract you or take away from your drive.

Venus In Aquarius

You need intellectual stimulation and plenty of space. The most annoying thing a friend could say to you: "Why didn't you call me?" People with Aquarius in Venus don't like clingy people or feeling pressured to coddle others emotionally. You avoid cliche people and situations. Intelligence and originality in others is very stimulating to you. You love discussing how to bring about real change in the world.

Venus In Pisces

You are a deeply intuitive and sympathetic friend. You find that people are often drawn to you and want to confide their problems in you. You not only hear and sympathize with what the people around you are going through, you absorb and feel their experiences as if you're going through them yourself! You are extremely selfless but you have to be mindful not to let others take your kindness for weakness.

This is something that I've been wanting to write about for a while now. There are a few reasons why too. One is that I grew up hearing that happiness is an emotion — and a fleeting one at that; that's why the focus should actually be more on being in a state of joy. Secondly, I can't tell you how many times I have looked a husband or wife in the eye as they told me they were leaving their marriage — not because of infidelity or abuse; it was simply because "I'm not happy anymore" (more on that in a bit). And three, I also can't tell you how many times a day will go by without me hearing or reading some variation of "do whatever makes you happy". LAWD.

So, here's the deal about store-bought lubricant. Oftentimes, when people think about using it, it's in reference to "treating" vaginal dryness or making sex easier post-menopause (when our vagina walls tend to be thinner and our natural lubrication isn't as much as it once was). However, as you're about to see in just a few minutes, it really doesn't matter how wet you're naturally able to get or how old you are, everyone should have at least a few tubes of lube in their possession — an oil-based kind for non-penetrative sexual stimulation; a water-based one for sexy toys (or if you or your partner's genitalia is naturally sensitive) and a silicone-based one for intercourse.

We all know the feeling. You plop down in a stylist's seat excitedly waiting for your slay to begin, only to be met with a look of panic when they actually lay eyes on your hair. As a woman with thick and coarse 4C textured hair, I know that gaze well. Sadly, so do most Black women, and it's been an ongoing problem in the entertainment world for decades.
