Here's Your Worst Instagram Habit, Based on Your Zodiac Sign
Maintaining the perfect Instagram feed is a lot of work.
From taking the photos to picking out the perfect images to knowing when to post and how to caption and tag them, a lot goes into every post. On top of all that, it's tough to judge exactly what photos best represent you, and what your followers actually want to see.
Sometimes we misjudge what a feed should be, leading to some bad Insta habits. Here's your worst habit on Instagram, based on your zodiac sign.
Aries (March 21 – April 19): Showing Off Your Gym Bod
Aries is the most active sign of the zodiac. You're full of passion and energy, and you have a determination that keeps you regularly headed to the gym or playing your favorite sport. However, you can also be a little too into your progress. You might take constant workout selfies flexing your muscles, or bathing suit pics showing off your flat tummy, making everyone else feel guilty about lazying their summers away.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Shamelessly Hashtagging Brands
Taurus is known for their affinity for nice things, and you're no exception. Whenever you get an expensive new accessory or go out to a fancy meal, you'll snap a photo and post it for the whole world to see. What's the point of indulging if no one knows about it? But you don't stop there. You also hashtag the brand of your pricey new outfit or gizmo so that everyone knows exactly how fancy you are. You're not afraid to brag.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Sharing Everything Indiscriminately
Gemini is an excitable sign that can be all over the map when it comes to their interests. You find that you're never posting about just one thing, making your Instagram feed a bit unfocused. If you took a cute selfie, went somewhere fun with friends, ate an exquisite-looking dish and spent time with your cat all in one day, you might be tempted to post 15 pics at once because that's your style. Your aesthetic isn't that consistent either. You don't really care because you want to get your pics out there.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Exclusively Posting TBTs
Cancer is sentimental and gets worried about the future, so you may enjoy spending a lot of time thinking about the past. You tend to post a lot of throwback pics of people you miss, events you wish you could relive again and again or your baby pics, because those were simpler times. While this isn't terrible as far as bad habits go, be sure to keep things up-to-date, too. Your followers want to see you thriving in the now!

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): Posting Nothing but Selfies
Leo is a confident and proud sign. It's likely that you're not afraid to admit you adore yourself, and that comes across on your Instagram feed. You feel like taking a selfie whenever you catch a glimpse of your stunning self in the mirror, and you're too generous not to keep all of your selfies to yourself. You don't see a problem, but some of your followers might think things are getting a little repetitive.

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sep. 22): Keeping Instagram Too Serious
Virgos are hard-working perfectionists, so you probably like to reflect that on your Instagram page. You don't usually like too much attention, anyway, so you use Instagram to show people that you're focused on projects or too busy for anything fun—but that's not necessarily the case. You're only human, and you shouldn't be afraid to share the side of you that isn't all about putting your nose to the grindstone. Let your personality out a little bit or everyone will get bored with you, fast.

Libra (Sep. 23 – Oct. 22): Only Posting Inspirational Quotes
Libra loves spending time with friends, keeping the peace and empowering others, so your feed may be littered with graphics of the quotes that get you through the day. When you spy a sweet piece of wisdom, you want to embody it as well as share it with others. This is nice every once in a while, but your feed should be about your authentic self, and not just some stuff you found on the internet.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): Deleting Everything After You Post It
Scorpio likes to keep an air of mystery around their lives, and maintaining a social media presence can run in opposition to that. You may find that you happily post something in the morning only to regret it hours later and take it down because it reveals too much about you. Even the posts you love are victim to deletion if they don't get the kind of engagement you want. Because of this, your Instagram feed is definitely sparser than most.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): Bragging Too Much About Travel
Adventurous Sagittarius dreams of traveling the world, but the experience wouldn't be quite the same if they couldn't also post about it in real time. You love visiting new places, trying exotic foods and having a journey some people could only dream of, and a small part of that joy is the chance to show other people what they're missing. While you might be inclined to post about every single experience your friends don't get to have, try curating a list of the moments that are most special instead.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): Having a Boring, Predictable Feed
Capricorn is known for being a little traditional and settled in their ways, and your Instagram feed is likely a steady, if not the most varied and exciting, stream of photos. You don't like to deviate too much from what works, and you might even stick to a regular posting schedule. This is actually a solid method for building up your page, but don't forget that you're allowed to be spontaneous every once in a while. You just might surprise your followers—and that's a good thing.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): Posting Incriminating Evidence
Aquarius' free-spirited nature can cause a little social media mayhem. You don't let anyone stop you from being yourself or doing what you like, except maybe you should think twice before posting a pic of you at a party when you told your mom you were at a friend's house, or at a theme park on a day you skipped school because you were "sick." You tend to leave a trail of everywhere you've gone, which winds up cramping your lifestyle.

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20): Only Posting Pet Pics
Pisces is in tune with the earth and their imaginations, and they cannot get enough of their pets. You're an animal lover who never gets bored at a party as long as there's a dog there, and you'd rather hang out with animals than people 90% of the time. That's why your feed is jam-packed with cuddly critters. Maybe you're always posting your pets, or the pets of a friend, or just the animals you see when you're out and about. You should probably start posting a few pics of yourself to mix things up, but as far as Instagram sins go, we don't mind this one too much.
