How Seriously You Take Social Distancing, Based on Your Zodiac Sign
Coronavirus has changed everyone's lives dramatically—and that's an understatement.
From the way we "go" to school, to the way we shop, to how we communicate with friends and loved ones and much everything else, it's all different now. And this whole experience has introduced a once-foreign term that's changed it all: "social distancing."
Standing six feet apart and wearing a face mask is the new norm—and if you say it's not a weird adjustment, you're straight-up lying. That said, everyone's handling the severity of the demands a bit differently. Some people are super serious about abiding by the rules, while others feel like they were born to break them.
Keep reading for how serious you take social distancing, based on your zodiac sign.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Bold and fiery Aries—generally, your motto is "rules are made to be broken," but as one of the most confident signs of the zodiac, your life is far too valuable to risk by getting coronavirus. You're doing your best to maintain social distancing, but your active sign is the first to admit you're going a bit stir crazy. While you do take this situation seriously, you're starting making exceptions by slowly letting people back into your social sphere.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Grounded, responsible Taurus, your parents would be so proud. You not only value your own life, but you respect that of those around you, making you opt without hesitation to #stayhome. TBH, it's not the people you miss (no offense to your friends!), it's the luxe spa treatments and self-care services. But you've done quite a job for yourself making do with the heaping of skincare products you've racked up over time.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Oh, Gemini, what are we going to do with you? You complain about being stuck inside, but the more you go out, the more you put yourself and others at risk of keeping us locked away even longer! As one of the most social signs of the zodiac, Zoom chats just ain't cutting it. You crave physical interaction. While it's highly frowned upon, you're sneaking in some one-on-one time with friends and loved ones, throwing all those social distancing rules to the wayside.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
As the natural-born crab of the zodiac, you're absolutely loving the excuse social distancing gives you to hide away in your shell from now until…. hopefully forever? (kidding, of course!). Jokes aside, your homebody nature uses this unexpected alone time to process any thoughts you haven't fully internalized and gives you a chance to enjoy some quality me-time. While your highly sensitive, sentimental side does need some friend time here and there to express how you feel in life, it's nothing you can't do over the occasional FaceTime or lengthy text exchange.
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)
Oh, goodness. Attention-starved Leo may as well join Gemini for a slumber party, because these two signs aren't ones to put their health ahead of their social life. You miss getting all dolled up and being seen. If you're dating someone or currently crushing, you'll stop at nothing to see them in the flesh—and if you're single, you're sneaking in some occasional in-person friend time, giving you just the satisfaction you need to get you through this pandemic.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sep. 22)
Diligent Virgo, if anyone's abiding by the social distancing rulebook, it's you to a T. Even six-feet-apart walks with masks seem egregious to you! Your perfectionist sign is never one to break the rules, and clearly amid a pandemic is no exception. While you don't judge others for their own socially irresponsible decision making, you feel fulfilled resting your head at night knowing you're flattening the curve.
Libra (Sep. 23 – Oct. 22)
Lovable Libra, you're struggling right now. Not only does your social sign really miss your friends, but you can't believe how long it's been since you've gotten one of your luxe spa treatments. You're doing your best, but you feel like you're being held captive. You've been willing to bend the rules for a friend or two—it's the only thing keeping you sane.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
Despite your moody, broody exterior, you do crave physical contact, Scorpio—you're just selective about who you let into your space. While it may seem like you thrive in a social distancing environment, you get a little lonely, whether you like to admit it or not. The way you see it, if you only hang with people in very small groups (just the way you like it anyway), it's not the end of the world. You think people are going overboard with all the social distancing hoopla, and as long as they're not running amuck around town, intimate gatherings are fine.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
The world is typically your oyster, adventurous Sag. But suddenly, the sign that manages to keep itself most occupied has hit an unexpected wall. While neighborhood walks and jogs are fine and dandy, your need for speed eats away at you. Therefore, if getting away with a pal means un-social distancing, then so be it. You justify your actions by assuring yourself you're spending the majority of time outdoors, but either way, you're not opposed to breaking the rules (a little).
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
Judgy Cap, you're the first to scoff at those breaking the rules. You despise most people anyway, so those who run around town like idiots make you look down upon the human race even more. The way you see it, facts are facts, and hospitals don't lie. You realize the severity of the situation and will gladly follow the rules until they exist no more.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
Always one to think outside of the box and make your own rules, your feelings about social distancing are complicated, Aquarius. You've never been one to let anything or anyone dictate your decisions or behavior, but you're also no fool. You recognize the severity of the situation, and you're doing your best to abide by the rules without letting them completely win. Your solution? Still kind of going about your business, but ensuring a face mask and sanitizer is always in place. So, while you're not living in complete isolation, you're not exactly living life as a free-for-all.
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)
Oh, Pisces. Your head is always in the clouds—do you even know what's going on in the world right now? We kid, we kid. But seriously though, as a sign that kind of lacks a backbone, you don't really have a stance on matters. You're easily influenced by others, and you'll go wherever the wind takes you. If your parents command you to stay home one day, you'll listen—but if a friend convinces you the next day that social distancing isn't even necessary, you'll jump to sneak away with them. Our advice? Do some solid research before making any rash decisions!
