Scrolling through social media, you can usually tell who is posting only by the content. Take me, for instance. My Instagram is all happy stuff and what I'm reading, Twitter is all angry politics and what I'm reading, and Facebook is a hot mess, and also what I'm reading. All my Leo energy. My bestie is just the opposite. All of her posts are real life, in your face, "this is how it is" — total Cancer. It's one of the five zodiac signs most likely to be real on social media, whereas mine? Well, I'm complicated.
It's not about who is the most real and who is two-faced, but a more nuanced perspective about how someone interacts with the world, and what they're willing to show. Just because you don't want your great Aunt Linda to know your husband is getting a vasectomy doesn't make you fake — maybe you're just a more private person. A big part of our personalities involve our presentation to others, and those who believe in astrology look to the stars to better understand the complex nature of these interpersonal interactions, even if they are done through the veil of social media.
