I have always loved summers during winters & winters during summers. Well, is it just me or is it all of us? Do we all want what we can’t have or it’s just human to not want what we have?
Well! The reality is , the minute we have what we want it loses its charm. That brings me to a reality check.
Just yesterday we all wanted one extra holiday, some family time, a long weekend, work from home, learning a new art to satiate our passion but couldn’t find the time. The hustle for a better life, a rich wine & a bigger paycheck kept us all pushing our limits but boom in a blink of a second everything has come to a standstill.
The hustle is gone. We have all the time to be in a cozy space. We are Far away from the honks of the city. These are the unending lazy pj’s days. There is Netflix and binge. It’s an extra-long weekend.
But, now that we have it, it’s lost its charm and we all are craving the hustle again. This vicious circle needs to end. We need to learn to live in the moment & enjoy it too.
Let’s decode some fun ways to switch ourselves from finding ways to kill time to enjoy this precious get away from the usual life.
Here are some therapeutic activities for each zodiac that will help them convert this quarantine into a quintessential of self-discovery.
Aries (March 21- April 19)
A zodiac, full of fire and passion. They are reservoirs of energy. Multitasking comes naturally to them. So how do you keep them locked in space for more than a day? They are bound to blast.
Well, there is something that will hold them from blasting and rather help them channelize their vigor in a better way.
Give them a canvas and some bright colors. They will paint their heart out & don’t be shocked if you get a master piece. An Aries is an artist underneath. You can bet on their art and be ready to win a jackpot.
Taurus (April 20- May 20)
You can’t tame a bull. Neither you can tie it down. So what should a bull do in an enclosed space to keep calm?
Well, quarantine doesn’t mean you can’t keep calm. It has surely the power to help us find out the best stress busters and mood lifters for us. For a Taurus, it has to be gardening. A bull will find its solace amongst the greens. Their little paradise is bound to bring them the serenity they need to keep going while still restricted to the four walls. The freshness of the plants and the smell of the wet sand is surely the endorphin they need.
Gemini (May 21- June 21)
Being an introvert comes just so naturally to a Gemini that you can’t even differentiate whether it’s a personal choice they have or they are build up that way.
Talking or sharing ideas, secrets or their life for that matter is the last thing on their to-do list. You would find them so engrossed in the daily chores communicating won’t be the agenda for them at all. They will take ages to build up bonds and share their vibe with people.
So now when families are locked under one roof all you Gemini’s should focus on building your bonds with your loved ones. Talk, listen, exchange some fun & positive conversations. You never know by the end of this quarantine you might have a new friend.
Cancer (June 22- July 22)
The world knows their love for good food. Cooking, baking & devouring the same will always hold priority in their life. Good food for them is an art and a way to express their emotions. One day will be Indian, the other day Italian and yet another, who knows British maybe. They will stuff you with rajma rice and top you with pancakes and ice you with an Irish coffee & to catch up to this they will have already something baking in the oven.
So what should a Cancerian and all those surrounded by them do.
Well, get your sweat gear on. Sweat it out. You need to work out religiously every single day of this quarantine to make up for all your scrumptious meals. Let your heart enjoy the food, let your body tell a completely different story. Sweat it out. Sweat it out.
Working out is your rescue, my dear Cancerian. Go for it.
Leo (July 23- August 22)
The lion with a roar. Too much to talk about them, but let’s just say when it comes to the household chores they need hands down training for it. They might be winning the world outside, but in the matter of the home, they need to get a grip.
They should be thankful for this quarantine, it’s a golden chance for them to polish their cooking and cleaning skills. After all, a clean space is what breeds a clean mind. To all the Leo’s who are quarantined learn this art not for anyone else, but for self.
Cook yourself and your family a healthy wholesome meal and create a clean space for some healthy conversations. You can do this.
Virgo (Aug 23- Sept 22)
The urge to control everything in Virgos can make this a difficult for them. What’s happening right now is beyond anyone’s control. But what is amazing about this zodiac is they can ignore you like you don’t even exist.
Balancing between the urge to control and ignore is what will keep them occupied. But this might get frustrating and to fight this frustration “meditation” and “yoga” is going to be the two power moves they need to be on. Get your chants and yoga mats out Virgos. This will help you stay focused & relaxed.
Libra (Sept 23- Oct 22)
This one charismatic zodiac can sweep people off their feet just with their intense eyes. What’s difficult though is to get them on their feet. When at home they can turn out to be the laziest zodiac. Getting up from bed & taking a shower can be one hell of a task.
So all the Libras reading this your quarantine activity has to be “ GET up, & dress up.” This is possibly the only way to keep you active and alert.
This quarantine isn’t a 7 days thing and it might take longer than we all know, so find your laziness an antidote. This change can be life-altering.
Scorpio (Oct 23- Nov 21)
Known for their classic taste and fine choices, scorpions have a keen eye for art and decor. They love everything fancy and rich. Living life in style and luxury is something no one can take away from them.
Scorpions should be redoing their houses. They should try some fresh new classic ideas and funky styles and add a new definition to their space with the same old stuff. Scorpions you might just end surprising yourself.
Happy homecoming! A new house this quarantine.
Sagittarius (Nov 22- Dec 21)
This cold and self engaging zodiac should be shifting their focus from “me” to “we”. This quarantine Sagittarius should be making all the time they have for their family and should be putting themselves last on the list. They follow the art of self-care and self-love to the hilt, So much that at times they forget there are people who love them and they owe a little to them too.
Quarantine blesses you with an opportunity to make up for everything that you regret. Those overdue phone calls, family therapy sessions, indoor games with your kids. Be all about others for a change.
Capricorn (Dec 22- Jan 19)
Capricorn’s are born doers. They are hard-working and consistent. They believe in the power of hard work. Their only fear is anything that brings them down or ties them up keeping them away from their goals. Well, to some extent quarantine has done It. You are tied and homebound.
So it’s time to fight your fear. It’s okay to slow down and breathe. Its okay to miss out on things. You can’t have it all my dear Capricorn. So for you this quarantine the therapy is to practice the art of calmness. Learn to live in the moment. Learn to slow down. Learn to not do anything. Learn to just be and while doing all this don’t forget to do something fun.
You can definitely create some inspiring fashion statements and share them with those around you. Keeping up with the trend you can definitely create a look book for what people should be stepping out in once the quarantine is over.
Aquarius (Jan 20- Feb 18)
It’s a difficult task to be able to grab the attention of an Aquarius for a long period of time. Easily bored and always on a lookout, let’s find you some great books that give your spirit the wings to fly while your feet still centered on the floor of your house.
Dear Aquarius, your quarantine rescue is going to be some good fun books. You can choose a thriller or a comic. These are the only two things that shall be able to grasp your attention for long.
Your brownie points for an enhanced vocabulary awaits you. Have fun reading.
Pisces (Feb 19- Mar 20)
Their love for writing and sketching will come for their rescue when the anxiety would set in. A pen is a Pisces’ best friend. They paint when words fall short and write when emotions can’t express how they feel.
If by the end of the quarantine you discover the writer or a painter within you don’t be amazed. It was always there in a dormant state. You might just pinch them to reality.
Get your canvas and you reading glasses out Pisces, this quarantine is going to be real fun.
