The ‘Real Tea’ of Zodiac Signs

Updated: Jun 13, 2022


By Joey Macari

Yes, I’m a, “what’s your sign?” girl. I have no problem with that title, I’ve adopted it, married it, have had children with it…and I will not be ashamed of it either.

I got super into astrology when I moved to LA. A lot of things didn’t make sense when I lived there: the people, the climate (such an outlier with this one), the pandemic, even my own sense of purpose, at times.

Though I understand it’s not a science, I became mystified by the unique placement of the moon, stars and planets the year, day, hour and minute you were born. I’ve found it to be a kind of a beautiful, cinematic way of looking at things.

In this confusing spot in my life, I found astrology and horoscopes gave me a deeper understanding of who I am, a daily routine, and a roadmap to deal with other people's quirks.

In my still baby-stage of interpreting the zodiac, I’ve deduced some things about all the sun signs. These are all opinion based, so don’t cancel me. Please.

Here’s the hard-truths/real tea of the zodiac, coming from God’s favorite…a Libra.

Aries (March 21-April 20)

– Most likely to be picky eaters.

– Will say “I” an average of 5,937 times in a conversation.

– Expect nuclear disaster if you piss them off.

Taurus (April 21-May 20)

– Definition of “granola” and most likely smokes weed or has plants in their house.

– Enjoy the simpler things in life: eating, sleeping, eating…

– Are reliable long-distance partners.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

– They are not two-faced, rather, they’ll show you whatever face matters to you.

– Will drag you to a club even if you’re dying in the hospital.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

– “Incredible, iconic, groundbreaking, never been done before…”

– Loves a good ‘fit and likes to dole out compliments they don’t always mean (“I love your skirt where’d you get it?”)

Scorpio (October 23-November 22)

– If they don’t like you…you’ll know.
