Written in the Stars: The Signs in Quarantine

Social distancing has led us to remain cooped up in the house, bingeing shows on Netflix and picking up new hobbies. How well you manage staying in one place for a long period depends on your sign. Whether you’re itching to get out of the house or are enjoying each moment alone, here’s how each of the signs are most likely dealing with the quarantine.

  1. 1. Aries

    You get bored easily, which is why a stimulating environment is essential for you to stay sane. Movies and television can only satisfy you for 20 minutes at most, but after that you’ll need to immediately find a new activity. Right now, you may be itching to start a fight with the people you’re quarantined with just for some form of entertainment. 

  2. 2. Taurus

    You are thriving! As much as you may miss your best friends, this is the perfect excuse for you to sit around and do nothing. With nowhere to rush off to, you can spend more time sleeping and indulging in your favorite foods. The only downside is your online shopping habits have most likely gotten worse.

  3. 3. Gemini

    As someone who constantly needs to be entertained, your curious nature is hating every moment stuck inside the house. If you’re in quarantine with someone else, you may be driving them crazy with your non-stop talking, but this is only because you crave intellectual and interesting conversations. 

  4. 4. Cancer

    If you’re not sitting in your room, staring out a window reminiscing the days when you could still go outside, then you’re on social media, most likely posting throwbacks with your friends and loved ones. This quarantine has sent you a huge wave of nostalgia and you’re just counting down the days until you can see your friends again.

  5. 5. Leo

    When you’re not Zooming with friends, you’re probably going live on Instagram to update your followers on your day-to-day activities. This has allowed you to try new makeup techniques and lounge around in your best lingerie. When you’re not practicing your next TikTok, you’re probably enjoying happy hour for the third time today.

  6. 6. Virgo

    Cleanliness is your priority, and as a result, you’ve been deep cleaning your house at least once a day just to stay busy. When you’re not cleaning, you’re texting or calling your friends to make sure they are staying healthy and are offering advice on how to achieve a healthy lifestyle.

  7. 7. Libra

    You’re trying to stay busty to pass the time faster, which mostly involves recreating TikToks, baking and maybe even learning a new language. You’re just thankful you can spend some quality time with your family, even if they are driving you crazy.

  8. 8. Scorpio

    You’ve been avoiding any human contact, including texting back. However, you secretly miss your friends, even if you haven’t admitted it to them yet. This has not helped your paranoia towards other people, but hunkering down in your bedroom has allowed you to refocus your energies towards more practical things like contacting the spirit world.

  9. 9. Sagittarius

    This is your worst nightmare. Traveling is your entire lifestyle, and realizing you have to remain stagnant right now is driving you crazy. The fact that you are not currently jetting off to your next getaway is killing you, and you’re just waiting for the day when you can be set free to start your next exploration.

  10. 10. Capricorn

    If you haven’t already started a mood board, then you’re at least mapping out your next career move. This quarantine has given you the chance to slow down and focus on getting fit and making money moves. Now you’re just waiting for this all to be over so you can make those money moves.

  11. 11. Aquarius 

    You desperately want to escape, but instead have been sprinting around your house trying to occupy the time. When you’re not counting down the minutes to your daily walk, you’re enjoying the sweet minutes in nature, until you have to go back home and try to find something to binge on Netflix.

  12. 12. Pisces

    You already live in a fantasy world inside of your head, so this is the perfect excuse for you to fully dissociate from reality and enjoy the comforts of your imagination. You can’t stand being away from your friends and would rather make up unrealistic scenarios in your head than face reality. Just don’t forget to text back your friends and family who are probably wondering where you are!

At the end of the day, we will all get through this, no matter how we handle it! Stay safe, wash your hands and stay connected with your family and friends during this difficult time!
