Aries (March 21 – April 19): Enjoy a New Jogging Path

Sunny weather and warm temperatures mean it's the perfect time to go outside and do something, and after being cooped up for a long whileactive Aries is more than ready to get out there. It's likely the sign is eager to do some outdoor exercise, and finding a beautiful jogging path through a new section of town might be the best way to do that. That way, you can satisfy your need for exploration and activity in one fell swoop.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Cook Something New and Exciting

Taurus can satisfy their inquisitive nature and their picky bellies this Gemini season by cooking up a new and thrilling dish. Not only is the task of preparing a novel dish something that will appeal to their tactile nature, and their senses of sight, smell, taste and touch, but it also suits their desire to produce great results. And with Taurus being the "treat yourself" sign, it's also a less spendy way to indulge.


Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Learn a New Language

It'your season, Gemini! Gemini is a sign associated with communication and sociability, so this is the perfect time to enhance your own abilities to communicate with different types of people. Use this time to learn a new language, whether it's so you can talk with certain people in their native languages, or just so that you can start enjoying pieces of media more authentically. You may also find that this comes more easily this time of year than any other time.


Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Befriend Yourself Through Journaling

Gemini season is one that allows for more effective communication and understanding, and Cancer should take advantage of that by learning how to better comprehend themself. Whenever the sign is struggling to properly process their thoughts and feelings, they should try writing things down to sort them out. They just might find that taking this time will help them sort out their emotions, and identify helpful thought patterns along the way.

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): Picnic and Mingle Outdoors

Of all of the signs, Leo may be the least likely to get trapped inside during the glorious Gemini season. They should use this opportunity to take advantage of stellar weather and the world opening up by heading to the park with a picnic basket—and maybe a frisbee or ball—in hand. They should soak up the sunshine while looking out for any and every opportunity to meet new people looking to do the same, and they just might make a new best friend.


Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sep. 22): Reinvent Your Personal Space

Gemini is a sign of freedom and flow, which may not sound all too compatible with Virgo's regimented and fastidious ways. However, there is a way for earthy Virgo to channel airy Gemini's energy for their benefit this season. The sign should take this time to take a look at their workspace and make any changes that might allow them to work faster and smarter. Decluttering is key, and a change of pace can make a big difference in what they can get done.


Libra (Sep. 23 – Oct. 22): Ask Friends for Music Recs

Like Gemini, Libra is a sociable and outgoing air sign, so they should use this season's energies to cultivate their friendships and exchange ideas with the people they trust the most. It's the perfect time for Libra to start expanding their musical horizons, asking their friends to share their very favorite artists with them, and to start sharing their own favorite tracks as well. It's the season of swapping playlists, so don't be shy.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): Consult a Tarot Spread

A Scorpio's complex and protective energy can seem at odds with the open, spirited nature of Gemini, but Scorpio can still use it to their benefit this season. There's no better time of the year for Scorpio to consult a tarot spread and get a little spiritual guidance on the questions you have about life and the universe. After all, Gemini season is all about communication—and that includes communication with the metaphysical.


Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): Stargaze

We have no doubt that Sagittarius will use the open, sprawling Gemini season vibe to frolic and adventure, but we also recommend that Sag take a moment to stargaze in the coming weeks. Getting out to see the shining stars can put things into perspective, showing Sag their place in the universe while also inspiring them to get out there and explore—perhaps even beyond the limits of our own planet.


Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): Start a New Fiction Novel

Capricorn tends to be hard-working and a bit serious, and many Caps would much rather invest their time in non-fiction than made-up stories and fantasy. However, they may be a little more receptive this time of year thanks to Gemini's influence, and it's the perfect time for them to try out something that's a little less grounded in reality. A new fiction novel will satisfy their need to be productive while also expanding their minds to new and unique ideas.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): Volunteer Outdoors

Aquarius is yet another air sign that shares much in common with feisty Gemini, and after a rather restless year, it's time that they got out there to finally do all the things they've had to put off. Aquarius is an altruistic sign, and now that the weather and the world are both opening back up, it's time to for them to get hands-on with a cause that inspires them. Aquarius knows they can change the world, and it's just the time to do it.


Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20): Write the Song in Your Soul

Pisces has a reputation for being the most creative sign of the zodiac, and this season, the ideas will be flowing. Though it's tempting to daydream the start of the summer away, Pisces should try to channel their imagination into something productive at this time, and we think songwriting is a fabulous way to do so. Whether you're dreaming up melodies, incredible beats or inspiring lyrics, Pisces should write them down. They never know how they might come in handy later.
