Which Drug Are You, According To Your Zodiac Sign?

We all have our vices. For some of us, this means binge-watching way too much TV; for others, it can mean a weekend drug habit. No matter what your stance is on recreational substance use, wouldn't it be interesting to find out which drug you are, according to your sign on the Western zodiac? Drugs have their own personalities - they can be uppers, downers, or revelation-inducing - just like astrolgoical signs. 

Our charts can tell us everything from what Disney princess we are to which horror movie villain we most emulate. Knowing the drugs analogous with each zodiac sign doesn't mean you should run out and grab your sign's illicit substance, but it can give you a bit of insight about what you could become addicted to - and how to avoid it.

  • Aries - Cocaine

    Aries are perpetually on the move and all about that fast-paced life. One of the sign's positive personality traits is the confidence with which they move through life. However, an Aries with an unchecked ego may have a bit of a "god complex" at times. Cocaine makes its users talkative, strong-willed, and ready to take on the world's biggest problems, just like the ambitious ram.  

  • Taurus - Weed

    A Taurus is known for stubbornness and disliking change. Tauruses (Taurii?) are also homebodies who love to surround themselves with creature comforts, especially food. And you know what makes food taste better? Weed. As unmoving Earth signs, Tauruses have no problem being couch-locked for a few hours while indulging in some of their favorite snacks and TV shows. 

  • Gemini - Dimethyltryptamine (DMT)

    If Geminis were any drug, it would likely be dimethyltryptamine, a psychedelic substance with fleeting but intense effects. Much like a Gemini's flighty nature, DMT provides an extreme but ephemeral trip. It's speculated to be a chemical released as we dream, and possibly when we die, so experiencing DMT can be vivid at one moment and completely lost the next. This is very much in line with a Gemini's tendency to be hellbent on one thing, and then forget about it and change course within the next moment. 

  • Cancer - Heroin

    Cancer is a water sign associated with sensitive, deep moods. When they're feeling negative emotions, Cancerians have a tendency to back away from the world and retreat into their shells when they feel worried or hurt. Like crabs, they burrow themselves into their homes and wait for the harsh tides to ebb. Heroin converts into morphine once it hits the brain and quickly binds to opioid receptors. Users feel an intense rush and relaxation, letting the world melt away. Characteristically speaking, heroin is a foil to a Cancer's moody side and tendency to fall inward.
