No Idea What to Do This Weekend? Let the Zodiac Help

I’m not saying that astrology is the answer to all of life’s questions… but you can certainly apply the principles to a lot of them.

For example, if you’re not sure what to do with yourself this weekend, the archetypes of each Sun sign can offer a few ideas.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Aries usually has a lot of extra energy to burn off, so do something physical this weekend. Hiking, biking, building a fort–get those muscles moving and your heart pumping.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Did someone say “road trip”? Going on a scenic drive will let you enjoy nature without leaving your car. Truly, the best of all worlds. As a bonus, pack a gourmet picnic for yourself to enjoy.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Finish a project, Gemini! Yes, I know you want to start something new and interesting this weekend, but what about all the unfinished fun from last weekend? Make a commitment to completing as many things as possible.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Why wait until next spring to deep-clean your house? There’s something very satisfying about knowing that your living space is spotless–or at least less spotty than it was before.

Leo (July 23-August 22)

Practice in the kitchen this weekend and raise your culinary (or mixology) skills. Everyone should know how to make at least three dishes or cocktails really well. If you haven’t reached that level of mastery, practice makes perfect–and delicious.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)

You know what’s fun and easy to do while social distancing? Board games. Round up some friends to play over Zoom. Break out your favorite board for family game night. Or use an app to play online with strangers.

Libra (September 23-October 22)

During the pandemic, many museums have created free virtual tours to enjoy. “Stroll” through the Louvre or “visit” the British Museum. It’s not quite as good as the real thing, but we’ve all got to make do with what we have.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

Rom-com movie marathon! Try saying that three times fast. But seriously, this weekend is perfect for vegging on the couch with your favorite lighthearted movies, a big bowl of popcorn, and nothing else to worry about.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)

When was the last time you wrote an actual letter? Like, with paper and a stamp and everything! Pick three to five people you care about and send them a note in the mail this weekend. They’ll be delighted that you thought of them.

Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

Take on a simple home improvement or DIY project this weekend. Life gets busy during the week, and there are doubtless several projects on your to-do list that are waiting for you to make time. Think about how satisfying it’ll be to cross that thing off the list!

Aquarius (January 20-February 18)

Organize a neighborhood cleanup project, or simply do what you can solo. Picking up trash, trimming overgrown plants, and fixing what you can–that’s a worthwhile way to spend your time.

Pisces (February 19-March 20)

Enter a realm of fantasy and adventure with a role-playing game! If you’re old-school, set up a Dungeons & Dragons session with friends. If you prefer modern technology, try playing one of the many online RPGs available. It’s not the most productive way to spend a weekend, but it’s fun!
