How You're Reacting to Quarantine, Based on Your Zodiac Sign
Obviously we can all agree that everything going on in the world amid coronavirus is terrifying and tragic.
On top of the horror of the news and the inability to peruse the streets and our usual haunts like we once did, we're all on lockdown. We're all confined to our living spaces with the exception of the occasional brief neighborhood walk or trip to the grocery store.
That said, everyone's handling the situation differently. While some see it as pure torture, others see it as a time to thrive. We have a feeling we know how you're dealing with the whole thing. Allow us to share your reaction, based on your zodiac sign.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
As the most active, on-the-go sign, the initial news of quarantine freaked you out, Aries. Being alone—not only with your hamster wheel of thoughts, but also, with your ideas and nowhere to turn with them—had you going crazy. But, as the resourceful sign you are, you've quickly adapted to the new normal and found fresh ways to do old things. You're actually surprising yourself with how much you're able to complete with so many limitations. Let's be honest, even a pandemic can't slow down this fiery sign!
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
While some signs are freaking out amid quarantine, you're settling in quite nicely, Taurus. You're a relatively tame sign to begin with, so you're not exactly craving the fast-paced or overly social lifestyle required of some of your peers. That said, your fine tastes do miss dabbling in grade-A cuisine or hitting the spa for some much-needed R&R. But as the grounded earth sign you are, you're making do of what's available online and what you already have at home. Get you a fancy face mask, a luxe robe and delivery from your fave dining establishment, and you're good to go!
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Poor Gemini… when you're not aggressively FaceTiming anyone you've ever come in contact with (oh, hey there old pal from third grade!), you're climbing the walls out of extreme boredom. You're one of the most social signs of the zodiac, so sitting around and attempting to solve a Rubik's Cube just isn't how you see a day in the life of your lockdown going. You crave those rare trips to the grocery store with mom just so you can say "hi," "bye" and "thank you" to the person at the checkout stand.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Cancers are homebodies at their core, so you're actually… dare we say it—enjoying—quarantine? While, yes, you're kind of stuck with way too much time to analyze all your emotions, the break from the outside world is kind of refreshing. You get a much-needed hiatus from everyone else's energy and can finally focus on yourself. If you can avoid your feelings getting too caught up in what's going on outside and on your TV screen, you can use this time productively.
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)
Oh, Leo, where do we even begin with you? Your whole world came crashing down upon news of quarantine. Your social life, good hair days and professional self-care services were all out the door at once, leaving you with nothing but endless selfies to keep yourself entertained. You're a bit lazy during these times, relying on a rotation of sweatsuits to keep you cozy and TikToks to garner the attention you so crave. Most of your hobbies are presently obsolete, so Netflix and your couch have been your ideal quarantine combo.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sep. 22)
It's business as usual for you, diligent Virgo. Once you finish your routine CNN viewing with breakfast each morning, it's time to hit the books, or whatever else you're working on. While this whole WFH schedule has certainly been an adjustment, it hasn't been too challenging for your perfectionist sign, who can plow through any task meticulously.
Libra (Sep. 23 – Oct. 22)
With extra hours on your hands, now's your time to shine, lavish Libra. You're not about to let this whole WFH sitch change up your vanity routine. Selfies are all the more common for you, and your self-care routines have never been more in check. But while your appearance is of utmost importance (even amid isolation), you haven't forgotten about your friends and loved ones. You're the first to check in on your grandparents and other elders of importance in your life. Your friends all know you're just a phone call away if they feel lonely, and your S.O. (if you have one) has already received the most thoughtful #quarantinecarepackage.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)
Oh, Scorpio—you're already deep in your feelings as it is, so being locked away in solitude amid a deadly crisis outside doesn't change your mindset much. The only issue is your inquisitive mind watches the news way too much, and it's starting to get to you. Try to limit your screen time, as it's preventing you from being as productive as your sign's capabilities. As one of the most passionate, hard-working signs out there, use your time and energy wisely, as this could be a very transformative era for you if you go about your days effectively.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)
You live for a good adventure, dear Sag—and the fact that you have no clue when you'll embark on your next one is eating away at you. While you're still able to take advantage of some walking opportunities around your neighborhood, not having the option to hike, go on a distant bike ride, or plan your next camping trip is truly killing you. At-home workouts are your worst nightmare, and being cooped up inside literally feels like jail. Your naturally positive disposition is trying to make the most of this, but let's be honest—you're going a bit stir-crazy.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)
Introverted by nature, you have no qualms about social distancing, Cap. People are quick to annoy you, so not having to see them (outside of the occasional video chat) is like a dream come true. You're no stranger to hard work, and you're not easily distracted, so whether at home, in school or at an office, you'll get the job done efficiently and effectively.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)
Inquisitive Aquarius, your eyes have been going back and forth between CNN and the internet ever since news of the pandemic hit. You need to know all the facts and will stop at nothing to figure out what we can do as a society to stop the chaos. You've been so mentally stimulated throughout this entire ordeal that you haven't had a chance to feel the absence of human contact.
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)
Nurturing, empathetic Pisces, as soon as news of the pandemic hit, you were the first to start your own COVID-19 fund, or at least raise money for a pre-existing one. The thought of knowing people are suffering (friends, family or even complete strangers) makes you distraught, and you're doing everything in your power to help. You're feeling overly emotional right now, but it's okay—you're putting your deep energy into productive passions of yours, like art and music. Once this current chaos is complete, your imaginative sign could very well come out of this with a new creation of some sort.
