Coronavirus tips from an astrologer? It sounds wild, but we have a good idea for how you’ll deal with the pandemic based on your Zodiac sign. Catastrophes can bring out the best–or worse–in each of us. As we face the reality of a complete lockdown because of the coronavirus, here’s how each sign of the Zodiac will cope.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Unfortunately, Aries, you cannot physically fight the coronavirus. But people will need your energy and enthusiasm to help get everyone through this crisis. You are always willing to pitch in when someone needs you, and you don’t complain. Those are great qualities to have right now.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Taurus, you always secretly suspected something like this would happen, didn’t you? You’re more prepared than most for a crisis. Whether you have your own food garden or just a stash of bottled water in the hall closet, you’ve still got a head start on prepping for two months of self-isolation.
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
When things go sideways, Gemini looks for information. You’re reading and discussing the pandemic as much as possible so that you can understand what’s happening in the world. Knowledge is power, right?
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
You are a natural nurturer, and your impulse is going to be to take care of other people. Because of the way coronavirus, however, the best way to help is to stay home. You’re probably going to feel emotionally overwhelmed, so don’t forget to take care of yourself and your mental health.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
The whole “social distancing” thing is going to be tough for you, Leo. You’re a classic extrovert who truly draws energy from being around other people. Make sure to keep in touch with your tribe through social media, email, phone-whatever you need to do to get that social fix.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Hey Virgo, if you need to work from home for the first time, be prepared for a unique challenge. As a natural workaholic, be sure to set boundaries. You can easily find yourself working 24/7 if you aren’t careful. It’s also a good idea to make a designated spot in your home to work rather than sprawling.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
Libra can easily feel unsettled when routines are interrupted. That’s why Libra needs to focus on staying calm. Check out some YouTube yoga channels, try out a meditation app, or just relax with a cup of tea.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Scorpio’s realism is everybody else’s pessimism. You might think you’re just telling it like it is, dishing out grim statistics and dire predictions for a post-coronavirus future. But you might be doing more harm than good to your tribe by making them feel even more anxious.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
This sign of the Zodiac doesn’t like to spend too much time thinking about heavy stuff. You’d rather not worry about the coronavirus, but unfortunately you can’t avoid it forever. Make sure that you’re prepared and following the right protocol to keep yourself (and everyone else) safe. Then you can binge Netflix.
Capricorn (December 23-January 20)
Capricorn, you’re probably wondering if this is all blown out of proportion. After all, it’s just the flu, right? Wrong! While you’d prefer to keep living your life as if nothing is wrong, the truth is that you need to practice social distancing, work from home if possible, and cancel plans to attend any gatherings.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
Right now, your impulse is to help. That’s awesome, Aquarius, but there’s not much you can do other than donating money to organizations that need it. You’ll have plenty of opportunities for hands-on volunteering soon enough.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
Pisces is probably freaking out right now, imagining worst-case scenarios and spiraling into a full-blown panic. While it’s good to understand what’s happening, maybe take a step back from news and social media so that you don’t get overwhelmed.
