The Signs As Fonts: A definitive guide to your astrological type. Read directly from the stars by design astrologist adamjk, exclusively for yrbff.
How do I put this lightly… oh yeah, I don’t. Aries, you’re demanding and ambitious and sometimes that can put people off. There, I said it. You’re a little bit of an overachiever which can be great, but stop shouting, we hear you! All that aside, you’re loyal and make a real difference when it matters. Impact definitely does leave an impact, and you lend those strong words to those who are a bit quieter. Like cats. Thank you for speaking for all cats. U CAN HAZ.
You’re strong, sturdy, and a little stubborn, Taurus, but you’re patient too. Rock solid until the very end. We know we can count on you to understand and provide useful, practical insight, which can make you an excellent teacher. Sometimes it’s tough love, but it’s still definitely love. Bookman is a friendly font, but authoritative in a loving way. You’re someone we can keep coming back to.
Sometimes it’s tough to know which way you’ll go, Gemini! You’re flexible and pretty open most of the time, but we’re never sure which side of you we’ll get. Your clear, communicative nature is helpful and serves you well in your accomplishments. We also know you to be affectionate, and that infectious charisma doesn’t hurt either. Like you, Franklin Gothic is an excellent communicator, serving traditional institutions with a human touch.
You’re kind of a homebody, concerned with tradition and comfort. Like an actual crab, you carry a lot with you so you’re never far from what matters to you most. You’re a little fickle, but you’re loyal where it counts and make a good friend. Zapfino, based on a World War II era character set by Hermann Zapf, invokes a strong sense of history and familiarity. While it might not always be the right fit, or work well with other typefaces, it can be a great choice when the time is right.
Leo, you’re all about power and will, leading the way with your head held high. You just have a certain way of getting it right, so good job on that. It’s not just intelligence, but an intuition, tied strongly to your sensitive and loving nature. It’s okay that you’re so bold, because we know it comes from a place of love. Cooper Black can be so loud that it’s almost comical, but the overall intention is one of comfort and, to an extent, trust. It’s no wonder you’ve become a go-to choice for slogan tees and make us think of our favorite camp counsellor.
Oh, Virgo! You’re so charming and intelligent. We love talking to you, and the conversation flows easily. You’re a storyteller and a natural fit, and you work well with others. Some might think you’re a little basic, but we know better. It’s a calculated effort to be as useful as possible, and people open up to you as a result. Times New Roman has stood the test of time, from a legacy of use in print to modern day computing. Everyone knows you, and everyone has an opinion. There’s no such thing as bad publicity?
Balance and stability are what you’re all about, Libra, which can be tough. Your constant quest for beauty and truth in everything and everyone can border on obsessive. You can be quiet and shy, but when you find your worthy cause, you become a champion for others. Gotham is serious, but friendly, with beautiful round shapes, a great choice for Barack Obama’s campaigns. You’re introspective enough to know that you’re a bit played out currently, but remember not to hold your tongue when it counts.
You’re purposeful and bold, Scorpio, and exude control and confidence in all you do. Sometimes you’re misunderstood and retreat a little, but not for long. You can be a little brash, but it’s not without reason. Sometimes you feel like you have to fight to be heard, and that may be true, but don’t fight too hard or you’ll be written off entirely. Verdana isn’t always the most beautiful, but it works hard to be legible online and off, and boasts a massive character set so it can be heard anywhere it needs to be. Just don’t get too far ahead of yourself.
Oh boy, Sagittarius. You’re impatient and sometimes too quick for your own good, but you’re focused when you need to be. Which is important, because you have a tendency to try and do everything at once and can suffer as a result. You can’t really be tamed, but do take friends and relationships seriously. Marker Felt Thin isn’t always the right choice, but this quick scrawl is tame enough to be an effective and passionate communicator. You’re reminiscent of lettering on protest signs… no surprise there.
You really don’t need me to tell you this, Capricorn, but you are intelligent and practical, and keeping your shit in order is important to you. You also just don’t give a fuck about what’s going on around you, which keeps you on task. Your perseverance is what helps you succeed in almost any situation, but your stoicism backfires when you can’t share your feelings with anyone. Helvetica stands the test of time, being a clear communicator and presenting information without comment. Like you, it can sometimes feel like it lacks its own personality depending on usage, but it’s a ubiquitous choice for getting things done with grace.
You’re pretty unassuming, doing your thing a bit differently, but quietly at the same time. You’re honest, loyal, and smart, which helps you make friends easily. You drift towards humanitarian efforts, but you can also be pretty lazy sometimes, getting lost in thought and even poetry. When you’re on task, you’re extremely smart, but you don’t need anyone to pat you on the back. You’re content. American Typewriter is a cleaned-up typewriter font, evoking a time before modern computing in a friendly, clean face. It’s both “all-natural” and “top-secret” which is why it’s such a good match.
You’re trustworthy and quiet, except for when you’re not. Those who pay attention will notice your true beauty, inside and out. Those who don’t are missing out on a wonderful, generous friend. Sometimes you’re a little… off? This can lead to you being taken advantage of. Try to give yourself some space so you can focus on organize everything going on in that head of yours! Futura is a good match for its geometric beauty and cool moves, but it gets cluttered fast. Give it lots of space and don’t let it say too much or it’ll get jumbled right up. Use it for headlines and other close-up opportunities to say a lot with a little.
…. Actually I really like that font.
