Quarantine has affected all of us in deeply different ways. Some of us are living our best life at home, and thriving during this societal hiatus (we see you Capricorns). The extroverts, and most fire signs are struggling without human interaction, places to go, and people to see.
Looking to the stars for guidance through this tumultuous time in history may help you be more at peace with your personal outlook, or feel less alone with the coping mechanisms we are utilizing.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
You love living in the moment, but in the age of shelter in place you are left without the usual tools that bring you joy. Never fear, Aries is a sign that is going to make the most of any situation. You are using this time to pick up a new hobby or learn a new vocation. On the flip side, monotony is never good for very long, so you will need to work hard to stay positive and keep busy and keep moving.
Most Likely To: Master a new hobby and showcase it on social media.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Practical Taurus, you have taken everything in stride and tried to be a calming force to those around you. The financial instability of the times have worried you, but you keep to a routine as much as possible, and keep with the task in front of you to get through your days. When you have your moments of hopelessness it’s generally around a lack of cultural stimulation, whether that’s trying a new restaurant or planning a new adventure. You have a love/hate relationship with quarantine, but of all the signs you are handling this better than most.
Most Likely To: Invest more money in your 401K/rainy day fund (or thought long and hard about it). You also have been ordering lots of takeout to support your favorite spots to ensure they stay in business.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Your inner twins are so out of sorts, and in constant battle with each other. On the one hand, you don’t mind change and can thrive in uncertain situations. On the other hand, your active and cheerful nature has no outlet. This is a rather boring and mundane existence, and you are neither of those things. Rely heavily on the go with the flow twin, keep in touch with your inner circle through video calls, and feed your curious nature by exploring new music, cooking new recipes, and anything that expands your horizon.
Most Likely To: Dye your hair pink on a whim, get a new pet, or make a sudden life change to mix up the everyday– and of course start good conversations.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
So many feelings, it’s exhausting to get to the bottom of everything this situation has made you feel. The joy and sorrow are in constant rotation, and your dislike of change has put you completely out of sync. Your home is your safe place, so being in your sanctuary gives you peace. You’ve delved into familiar outlets for happiness and creativity. Most likely in reading all the books in your queue, or having nightly zoom calls with your nearest and dearest. The longer you are getting used to your new normal, you will have much unease about the changes that are coming, and leaving your safe cocoon. Hang tough little crab, this too shall pass.
Most Likely To: Start each day with a zen yoga practice to quiet your mind, and ending each day drinking too much wine.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Poor Lion, you were never meant to be caged! All of the worldly things in which you derive pleasure are nonexistent and you’ve been struggling to stay upbeat. You’ve done your best to try your hand at cooking new recipes, rearranging your space, and staying in touch with your many friends, but more so than any other sign in the zodiac you are struggling. Now is the time to do all those things your exhaustive social life has prevented you from doing. Learn a new skill to show off in earnest on social media, and get the worldly feedback you crave. The only upside here is that you aren’t struggling from any FOMO, because there’s nothing to miss out on.
Most Likely To: Invite people over for a social distancing happy hour outside and document the whole thing on instagram stories.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
The king/queen of keeping order and a schedule, you have no doubt continued getting up at the same time each morning, and keeping as much of a routine as quarantine allows. The outside world is jealous of how well you are seemingly keeping it together. You have organized your sock drawer three times already and your deep cleaning chores have been complete since mid March. At night you listen to moody depressing music and admire all the toilet paper you hoarded.
Most Likely To: Tackle a tedious home project you never had the right amount of time to devote to until now.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Your life is all about the struggle for harmony, and the current state of the world is making that harder for you to keep the scales in balance. You have dived deeply into self care, taking long baths with epsom salt while listening to Enya and trying to meditate. You have stocked your house with (even more) house plants, and have enjoyed the cathartic practice of watching a garden grow and diving deeper into the arts, new music, or taking up painting. You have nightly zoom calls with your friends and family, and occasionally break the rules to spend time with those you love the most.
Most Likely To: Feel extremely sorry for yourself, and buy all sorts of things from amazon to fill the people void left in your soul.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Social distancing has given your melancholy and somewhat dark inner thoughts space to blossom. You always need your solitary time, but this is too much of a good thing, so don’t give up on finding the outlets you need to stay positive. Seek out book and TV recommendations from friends and family, and get lost in them to give your intense mind a break. You are a very loyal friend, so stick close to those you love and make sure you keep as much contact as possible so they can keep a smile on your face.
Most Likely To: Spend more time on social media more than any other sign. Whether looking at their ex’s social media, commenting on political threads, stalking old acquaintances, or researching CDC guidelines, you name it they are on it.
Sagittarius (November 21 – December 21)
Sag’s radiate a self confidence and an air of IDGAF that we all envy. They have a great poker face, and may not let on how much this is actually getting to them. Their need for adventure and travel is weighing on them heavily, even though they do love their home and can easily lean into being lazy and love a good Netflix and Chill. Beware, if Sagittarius is cooped up for too long, they tend to be a bit bossy around the house and try to tackle overly ambitious projects to make up for the lack of control they are feeling.
Most Likely To: Have three post quarantine trips planned, and spend lots of time daydreaming about new adventures.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
You were born for that #quarantinelife and have the discipline and independence to thrive during this time. There are no social situations you need to worry about excusing yourself from for your precious alone time. You now have an abundance of time to work and focus on bettering yourself, and are putting that opportunity to good use. This is one sign that will likely come out of quarantine in better shape than when it started. As a dutiful rule follower you are taking all the CDC guidelines to heart and have multiple face masks and hand sanitizer in your car and in all of your purses.
Most Likely To: Come out of quarantine with a raise, a rockin bod, or to have mastered a new skill– possibly all three.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
This period of unease has you feeling a little cornered or dare we say, trapped. You don’t react quickly to your feelings, instead you need lots of time to process what’s happening around you, and to you during quarantine. You are more annoyed than most with the state of where the world is, and getting back to your normal routine is of great importance. Your community and circle of friends is crucial for you to lean on, so don’t hesitate to have as much meaningful connection as possible tright now. Zoom happy hour anyone?
Most Likely To: Be worried about the future and want to help their community or circle of friends. Aquarius’ are likely to be the ones delivering food to the elderly, or doing something for the greater good.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
As the free-spirit of the zodiac, the fish is constantly on the go, looking for spiritual and emotional connection. They really need a hug right now and to fully believe that this too shall pass. Pisces are sensitive dreamers and need to focus on motivating themselves with things to look forward to. They are best suited to take up a new artsy habit like learning to play an instrument, painting, or anything that feeds their creative nature. Pisces also love a good dose of escapism, so they will always have plenty of booze on hand to help get the ‘creative juices’ flowing.
Most Likely To: Break quarantine and hang out with friends. Staying home for long periods of time is just not in their nature.
