Your smile horoscope

What your astrological sign says about your smile

Do Virgos smile more than Libras? Are Geminis more likely to forget to floss?

Astrologists believe that our personalities are shaped by the stars. If that’s the case, shouldn’t it also be true for our smiles? Here’s our take on what your astrological sign may have to say about your smile.

March 21 – April 19

Born to be bold, you’re never shy about showing the world your big, bright smile when you’re feeling happy. You’re competitive and always on the move, too, and that can affect the way you care for your teeth. But don’t overdo it by brushing too hard, Aries. And it’s not a race! Remember to brush gently and to take your time, even when things get busy.

April 20 – May 20

Your smile might be slow to start, but once you’ve begun, there’s no stopping you. You smile and keep smiling, Taurus, and nothing can bring you down. You’re just as persistent when it comes to caring for your teeth. You rarely change your mind about anything, so why should you change a great and effective oral health care routine? There are some things that are worth being stubborn about, and we could all use some of your bullheadedness when it comes to caring for our teeth. 

May 21 – June 20

People have labeled you “the twins,” but truth be told, it’s easy to lose count of how many people and personalities you contain, Gemini! Your swiftly altering moods are as unpredictable as the wind. When it comes to caring for your teeth, don’t forget to slow down and focus. Remember to put down all other tasks and to take your time to brush and floss carefully before moving on to the zillions of other things you like to get done in a day. And as you’re dashing about from place to place, don’t forget to take some time to smile, too. That goes for all of you!

June 21 – July 22

Your standards are high, Cancer, and that extends to the way you care for your teeth. You’re reliable, stable and dependable. You spend a lot of time making sure your mouth stays healthy, and you rarely veer from a meticulous oral health care routine. But there’s no need to be so serious all the time! Since those teeth are so well cared for, don’t forget to lighten up every now and then and share that lovely smile with the world.

July 23 – August 22

No one shines like you, proud Leo. You make yourself known with a big, expressive smile, and you enjoy seeing others smile as much as you love flashing yours at them. When it comes to taking care of your teeth, you use whitening toothpaste, and you always enjoy brushing because it’s something you do in front of a mirror. Let others call you vain. What do you care? You keep smiling, you keep shining. We love how you do you, Leo.

August 23 – September 22

Analytical Virgo, you always want to know the who, what, why and where of everything you do. Your focus is admirably sharp, and you can always narrow in on exactly what needs to be done. That extends to the way you care for your teeth. You strive for perfection, and your mouth shows it. Keep up the good work, but don’t forget the big picture. Take some time to stop, smile and just take life in without overthinking every single step.

September 23 – October 22

You strive for balance in all things, Libra, and your scales of judgment are always on the move, up or down. People can get tired of waiting for you to decide, but when they get frustrated, you just show them that irresistible smile of yours while you make up your mind. You like to use sound judgement in all things, and that includes the way you care for your teeth. You love luxury, and you won’t hesitate when it comes to splurging on a fancy electric toothbrush or the most expensive brand of mouthwash. And why not? Your smile is totally worth it!

October 23 – November 21

If there’s ever a fight, we want to be on your side, Scorpio. You’re shrewd, insightful and tough, and when someone gives you trouble, you know how to give it right back. You’re also prone to being mysterious, complicated and hard to fathom. It’s understandable why the people around you feel most at ease when they can see that you’re smiling ― so please do it more often! Apply your famous fearlessness, tenacity and passion to caring for your teeth, Scorpio, and you’ll be set for life.

November 22 – December 21

You go your own way, Sagittarius. You love your freedom, and you hate being told what to do. But don’t let your sense of independence extend to the way you care for your teeth. Always listen to your dentist and follow his or her advice to the letter. You crave risk and excitement, and you tend to leap before you look. Your impulsiveness can be an admirable trait in certain circumstances, but when it comes to caring for your smile, remember: Thoughtful, consistent care always wins the day. 

December 21 – January 19

You’re a little shy, and you value your privacy, Capricorn, but there’s no need to always be so guarded. You’re a careful one, and you’ve always known that slow and steady wins the race. Your hard work and good habits pay off when it comes to caring for your teeth. Precise, careful and addicted to routine, you’re the patient that dentists dream of. Keep up the good work, but don’t forget to let others in from time to time by showing them that big, healthy smile.

January 20 – February 18

You crave new experiences and new friendships, Aquarius, and you use your smile to open doors, often befriending underdogs and the people that others ignore. Your sense of empathy is an admirable trait, so it’s no wonder everyone loves to see you smile. You care for your teeth with the same thoughtfulness, consideration and intellect you approach all the challenges in your life. Keep it up, our humanitarian Aquarian!

February 19 – March 20

You’re a dreamer, Pisces, and the people around you get a lift whenever they catch sight of your mysterious, faraway smile. High in the clouds isn’t the worst place to keep your head, but there comes a time when you have to return to earth and get practical. That’s especially true when it comes to caring for your oral health. Sitting around wishing your teeth were perfect won’t do you any good. Make up your mind to brush, floss and visit the dentist regularly. That smile will stay dreamy, and you’ll still have plenty of time to fantasize about other things.
