You probably know the traits and qualities associated with your zodiac sign. You probably read about them every day if you check your daily horoscope!

We all have our good and shadow sides to show to the world, but what about what we do when we think no one is watching?

Sometimes we need to unwind and indulge in behavior that reaches inside to a part of ourselves that makes us feel right with the world again.

Today we are going to talk about that and reveal the guilty pleasures of each zodiac sign.


You move a mile a minute, Aries. You want to avoid boredom and race to find the next exciting thing to try or experience to add to your “been there, done that” list of accomplishments.

Your guilty pleasure is cruising in your car with the music blasting and finding an open road on a sunny day with your favorite playlist providing your movie montage moment. Breaking the rules has never been so satisfying.


Bulls adore luxury, and you can be a little materialistic when it comes to collecting things to add to your very tasteful home. It’s good that you’re handy with finances because you are a dedicated and serious shopper when the mood strikes.

If you’ve had a bad day and need to indulge, you will whip out your credit card, fill your decked-out car with goodies, and spoil yourself with some retail therapy.


As the sign most associated with communication, you are the social butterfly of the zodiac. It’s no secret that you love to talk, and talk, and talk.

When you’re not holding your own at a party or flexing your debating muscles, we bet you’re deep in gossip magazines and binge-watching reality TV for water cooler conversation fodder.


Idealistic, romantic Cancer is nurturing, helpful, and caring. You spend a lot of time caring for those around you, but what do you turn to when you want some time just for yourself?

A cozy blanket, a daring romance novel, and a box of good chocolate probably sound divine when feeling crabby.


Leos love to be the center of attention. You need confirmation that you are important, magnificent, and the most fun person in the room. Your guilty pleasure is karaoke – you play it cool when someone suggests a night of singing your head off.

Inside though, you’re as excited as a kid on Christmas to get up there and belt out a tune. After all, you’ve been secretly practicing in the shower to make it perfect when called to sing.


The sign of Virgo has an eye on staying healthy, taking care of appearance, and working hard to present a meticulous image of self-control.

When you have a few precious moments to yourself after a tough day, you go straight for a treat. Not just anything will do either – you probably have your eye on sweet things like gourmet ice cream, pastries, cookies, or cake.

You have a deep appreciation for all things beautiful. Your charming, easy-going nature draws people to you like moths to a flame. Your guilty pleasure lies in your ability to be flirtatious.

Libra is romantic and loves the idea of being in love. Why not test your skills on the most attractive person in the room? You can’t help it, and it gives you a huge rush!


Scorpio is the sign of transformation and death, and you make excellent detectives if you point your nose in that direction!

You are also scarily good at messing with people’s minds. You love a dark, intense psychological thriller in your downtime. You are also into watching documentaries about cold case files and murder mysteries.


You are the zodiac’s optimist, with your rose-colored glasses guiding you through life. You also have a witty, sarcastic side, which can come out when you’re annoyed.

When you’ve had a rough day and feel like letting loose, trash-talking with your close friends while playing video games or watching a romantic comedy are guilty pleasures that make you whole again.


Serious, dependable, structured Capricorn. Everyone relies on you to get the work done and to keep going long after everyone else has gone home for the day. You pile up so many overtime hours that you could take a year off if you could stand it!

After all that responsibility, your guilty pleasure is taking an afternoon off, heading for a massage, some take-out food, and a night with your phone and e-mail turned off.


You’re always coming up with new ideas, trying to figure out the people and situations around you. You delight in using that analytical, big brain of yours. Unsurprisingly, you get incredible satisfaction from going to escape rooms, the ultimate adult puzzle.

You love this type of night out with friends, but you might even secretly go alone – to prove you can solve them alone!


A highly creative sign, Pisces have terrific imaginations, and you often use yours to escape the world when the emotions you pick up on become too intense for you to deal with.

When you need a break, you indulge in your guilty pleasure of a night out at a music festival or concert. You love a night of getting tipsy and appreciating some gorgeous music with people of like mind and spirit to inspire your artistic side.

What is Your Guilty Pleasure?

We all indulge occasionally – it helps us maintain our sanity! Don’t be afraid to keep these activities just for yourself. These private moments of bliss contribute to what makes you unique. Whatever your guilty pleasure may be, you needn’t be ashamed of it at all.

Guilty pleasures help us de-stress and bring back some balance in our hectic lives.

If you indulge in your guilty pleasure in moderation, most are a healthy way to escape from reality for a little while. Do you identify with any of these guilty pleasures? If you haven’t tried them already, what’s holding you back?
