Best Galentine's Movies to Watch Based On Your Zodiac Sign
February 14th brings the most fabulous holiday of the year. No, it’s not Valentine’s Day. It’s Galentine’s Day, the non-official time of the year to honor friendship. Being that it’s the 10-year anniversary of Galentine’s Day, an event that was trademarked in 2010 on Parks and Recreation, we decided to celebrate the awesome day with the best movies to watch with your favorite girl gang, based on all the signs of the zodiac. Because it wouldn’t be a party without knowing which movie denotes the way your Libra bestie feels about you.
Bend It Like Beckham https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-DNwS_CwEAw
Friends who support their squad are the best to have. Although Aries have a need to be #1, they want their crew to be at the same level as them. Bend It Like Beckham supports this theory of two BFFs who want the other to play soccer hard, win on and off the field, succeed in life, and have fun. No matter their differences, they come together because that’s what teammates do for each other. They never compete for a trophy (as they only play for the same team) and cheer the other on — that’s true friendship for you.
Girls Trip https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7jE61BzKmgQ
This college crew wants to get nostalgic and relive their glory days in Las Vegas for a girls weekend together. Like Taurus, they want to be indulgent in all that life has to offer in New Orleans. However, things get real when they begin to open up about their personal lives. Sharing their truths is hard, but with friends who don’t care about superficial sentiments it’s easy to let loose and expose the realness within. Every Taurus will appreciate the loyalty shown and proven in this movie. Girls Trip gives a very deeper meaning to the term “ride or die.”
Mean Girls https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDU84nmSDZY
At first glance, one may not assume that Mean Girls is a movie that expresses the true sentiment of Galentine’s Day. That is a misconception. Like the air sign Gemini, Mean Girls has a duality to it. This flick shows how important it is for women to support other women —and what happens when one doesn't. Once friends quit spreading rumors and start standing up for each other, they can flourish in all areas of life and be lifelong pals who have their back. Instead of backstabbing others, give them some TLC. And, don’t be a Mean Girl.
How Stella Got Her Groove Back https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2A1Fvc_HD5I
Two gal pals (Angela Bassett and Whoopi Goldberg) go on vacation to Jamaica. While in Jamaica, Delilah (Goldberg) urges her bestie Stella (Bassett) to loosen up and open herself up to love again (which happens to come in the form of a much younger Winston, who’s portrayed by Taylor Diggs). Without Delilah’s guidance and support (she is always cheering Stella on), Stella wouldn’t risk it all to experience bliss, love, and freedom on her terms. Cancers are the natural nurturers of the zodiac. Just like this sentimental movie, they keep life flowing and moving, like the waves of the ocean.
Real talk: Being popular is very important to Leos, whether they want to admit it or not. TBH, ruling the halls of high school with their bestie is the only dream that matters to them. That’s what Amy and Molly aim to do throughout the movie Booksmart. But, they also want to cram all of high school into one decadent night of celebrating their graduation, which as any Leo knows is the only way to make a splash on the party scene (in an extra, big, messy, and dramatic way to make their presence known).
Hidden Figures https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5wfrDhgUMGI
Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Mary Jackson (Octavia Spencer), and Dorothy Vaughan (Janelle Monáe) work for the government and are insanely smart (as most Virgos are). All three of them rise to the top of the ranks at NASA and aid Katherine in implementing the coordinates for the spaceship to reach the Moon. This real-life film depiction shows us how pals and Virgos love each other, with direct communication and admiration for the other’s mathematical mind. After all, Virgos only have time for smart friends who are real and always there to help out with their brainpower.
Someone Great https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BBd9gcrj2Wk
No one knows more than Libra that relationships come and go. But, as long as we have friends by our side to wipe out tears, then we can get through heartbreak with flying colors (over time). Also, no one knows more than Libra that a true pal always stands by the side of their pals to help them achieve their dreams. When Jenny (Gina Rodriguez) is dumped by her longtime BF, her BFFs Blair (Brittany Snow) and Erin (DeWanda Wise) spend a day trying to mend their bestie’s heart. An action that any loyal Libra would do for their friends.
Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kGM4uYZzfu0
Hell hath no fury like a Scorpio scorned, especially if they have a whole crew of friends willing to fight on their behalf for their cause. Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) has a group of deadly women in her squad (Huntress, Black Canary, and Renee Montoya) who help her escape the crime boss (Black Mask) and mend the pieces of her broken heart after a breakup with her on-again/off-again boo, the Joker. Together, they become unexpected vigilantes of Gotham City and give new meaning to the phrase “girl power.” After all, Scorpio represents the claws of justice (like Harley and co.).
Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eV1IkLvTe1I
Sagittarius is a sign known for adventure and that’s exactly what Bridget (Blake Lively), Carmen (America Ferrera), Lena (Alexis Bledel), and Tibby (Amber Tamblyn) are doing over their summer vacations. In pure BFF style, they decide to share the same pair of magical pants that look a-ma-zing on all of them in each of their life lessons and travels that span the globe. The fiery archer Sagittarius has innate strength within and that’s what these powerful give them. Throughout their spectacular journeys, they learn more about themselves and come to understand their dreams. They grow and evolve as a result.
Jordan Sanders (Regina Hall) is a tough tech exec, who doesn’t have room in her busy schedule for friends (a sentiment every workaholic Capricorn can relate to). In pure Capricorn style, Jordan reflects on her life (when she magically transforms into the younger version of herself) and learns that she has a best friend (even though she doesn’t realize it until the end) in her assistant April (Issa Rae). Although the two butt heads in and out of the office, Jordan learns that April has her back and won’t ever let her fall — even when she’s being a temperamental middle schooler.
For A Good Time, Call... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YbWUQXq5yDM
This movie is an epic love story between two pals who juxtapose each other in every way. For A Good Time, Call... truly honors the girl gang vibe, which is a quality of Aquarius (who rules friendships). When Lauren (Lauren Miller) is dumped by her boyfriend before he trots off to Europe, her college nemesis Katie (Ari Graynor) takes her in. After a few weeks of arguing, they start a phone sex hotline to make cash and fall madly in love with each other. Basically, this flick is a testimony to the nature of Aquarius’ need to befriend their enemies.
Pisces is known to be the most forgiving and tender sign. They’ll always be there for a friend, even if they’ve wronged them in the past. This is exactly how Effie (Jennifer Hudson) feels, even after Deena (Beyoncé) replaces her as the lead singer of their all-girls musical group and married Curtis (Jamie Foxx), Effie's ex. After years of animosity and confusion to the demise of their relationship, they join forces to take down Curtis (who has become controlling over Deena) to have one last performance together. That’s how Dreamgirls and Pisces get revenge.
