There’s something in the world for everyone to get addicted to and even if you think it’ll never happen to you, the possibility always remains. The types of addictions that people often develop range widely, from food and drugs to feelings or even repeated actions.
Determining what you’re most likely going to potentially get addicted to can play a major role in preventing that from ever happening in the first place. While family history, environment, and genetics play a major role in what we’re predisposed to, other factors come into play as well. One such aspect that can be used to evaluate what we’re most likely to become addicted to is our zodiac signs.
Our signs look into both our personalities and behaviors, and offer us a completely unique analysis of ourselves that’s been developed and tweaked over the ages. Because the zodiac signs are best known for the different emotions, strengths, and weaknesses that are associated with each one, all of these aspects can be examined and compared against the different types of addictions. In turn, what each sign is most likely to become addicted to can be extracted from this analysis, and it’s all based on how the stars and skies are aligned!
It should be noted that addictions of any kind or severity can be serious and life altering. Hopefully no one has to ever deal with such a problem, whether their own, or with a close friend or family member. These are the addictions that best symbolize the inner battles and conflicts that each zodiac sign struggles to overcome, so take it with a grain of salt.
Scroll down to find your zodiac sign and find out what you’re most likely to get addicted to based off of it:
Aries (March 21 – April 19)- Coke. Active and competitive Aries likes to zip through the day, going straight from one thing to the next. Their fast paced lifestyles catch up with them from time to time and they need a boost. The surging, energetic feeling coke provides would prove irresistible to their personality. It makes them feel confident and like they’re getting all their work done, yet they just end up burning themselves out all the more faster.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)- Weed and/or Food. A very tolerant and easy going sign, Taurus is often seen as lazy and nothing compliments those traits better than weed and comfort food. The two go hand in hand but the main reason why they’re drawn to food and pot is because it’s so easy to find and get their hands on. In true lazy stoner fashion, it all comes down to what’s easiest for a Taurus when it comes to their likeliest addiction.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20) Social Media. Geminis are escapists who like freedom and control over what they’re involved in. The sign is naturally drawn to social media because it offers them a quick way out of their present situation, into a world slightly detached from reality. Online they’re able to interact with people and topics of their choosing and can log off at any point. The mobility aspect of it also compliments the fact that Geminis are always on the go, juggling ten different things at once. Plus, they’re naturally social and friendly people, which makes social media their main addiction.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)- Pain Killers. Sensitive and somewhat moody, Cancers can be quite dramatic and over-react a lot. They like comfort and to feel good and when they’re upset they head for home. It has been said that nothing feels quite as good or warm and relaxing as the feeling that pain killers provide.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)- Shopping. Leos like the finer things in life and expect nothing but the very best as well. Their pride and materialism makes them prone to overspending because they will shop until they drop or their credit maxes out, whichever comes first! Their shopaholicism stems from a want and need to be the center of attention and to them the most luxurious, over the top, and hottest items get them the most of that.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)- Codependency. Virgos are known for being perhaps the hardest working sign and they carry this over into their relationships with others because they look for a partner to work on and help out. They’re naturally drawn to individuals who need them the most, such as those with their own addiction issues, and devote their spare time to caring for them. In due time their partners come to depend and rely on them entirely, which causes Virgos to become spiteful of the fact, yet simultaneously addicted to being needed.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)- Love. Libras are hopeless romantics who look to those they love for balance and reassurance. They’re somewhat hesitant and can’t seem to ever make up their minds, so when they finally find someone to love they don’t let go so easily. This also leads to them moving way too fast and sets their relationships up for eventual failure. They need to love and respect themselves before anyone else can do the same, and being fair and balanced with themselves is the key to overcoming their addiction to love.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21- Sex. Scorpios are mysterious loners who love to go for what they want or desire most. Sex, and watching it in particular, are massively appealing to them because it can be done on the down low and offers them a solitary experience. They can get whatever they want without anyone ever knowing about it. Plus, their greatest fear is intimacy and love, and meaningless sex is free of that.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)- Gambling and/or Drinking. The risk-taking, outgoing, confident, and highly social Sagittarius is most likely to become addicted to gambling and drinking. Their friendly nature is only fueled more by alcohol, which in turn leads to them making risky bets on virtually anything someone throws their way. They’re also happiest when they’re being active, and both gambling and drinking can satisfy that and their need for physical danger, as they’re apt to make high-risk bets when sloshed.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)- Pills and/or eating disorders. Capricorns are shy by nature and care a lot about what others think of them. They’d likely become addicted to something that they could easily hide or brush off if noticed, and pill popping and eating disorders fit that bill. Taking pills can be explained non-nonchalantly as being headache medicine or doctor prescribed medication. Eating disorders are often easily concealed and only require an explanation when someone who cares catches them and demands answers. These addictions also make it feel like they’re tin control, taking the edge off, and relieving stress, which is often a problem for hard working Capricorns.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)- Video Games and/or Cutting. Aquarius is friendly, analytical, modern, and forward thinking which is why video games are their vice of choice. Gaming gives them a place, a sort of alternate reality, where they feel safe enough to let go and channel all of their emotions. In a similar vein, cutting also provides them with an outlet for their feelings and emotions. They often bottle them up inside and cutting themselves makes them feel relieved, in control, and alive.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)- Alcohol. The dreamy, affable, and sensitive Pisces is perhaps the most emotional of all the signs. They’re often over-sensitive and their weakness is that they’re greatly affected by the thoughts, lives, and opinions of others. This is exhausting for anyone, but makes them turn to alcohol as a coping mechanism, which can quickly spiral out of control. Instead of running and hiding their emotions in a bottle of booze they should channel their feelings into a healthier, more worldly alternative, which many of them eventually and successfully do.
