By now, we have all noticed how some of our friends (even maybe ourselves) seem to be thriving during quarantine. And how others, let's just say, aren't doing so well with the break from the old routine. Maybe it's something to do with the stars...so we turned to Claire Comstock-Gay, astrologer and author of Madame Clairevoyant's Guide to the Stars to drill down who's sailing through these troubled times and who might need our support (Pisces, we are here for you).
First, let's all slow clap for the naturally gifted quarantiners:
This stubborn earth sign doesn't like to leave the house under the best of times, so right now...heaven. According to Comstock-Gay, "Taurus loves the creature comforts of life—good food, comfortable furniture, soft fabrics, beautiful spaces. For a Taurus who's able to stay home during the quarantine, it can be a perfect time to make adjustments to their physical space until it's just right, and relax into that comfort."
"Aquarius is also independent-minded and a little rebellious—but that doesn't have to mean breaking safety guidelines," the astrologer says. "Aquarius can scratch their itch for rebellion by heading out to a (safely distance, masked up!) protest, or by using this alone time to learn a new hobby (cooking? painting?) and then breaking all the rules." The protest will feed the Aquarian's strong humanitarian streak and exploring that new hobby or creatie pursuit fulfills the yearning for some recharging time alone.
This sign is famous for being the zodiac's biggest homebody—all about home, family and private life. "Cancer is also one of the most caring and nurturing signs, and there are so many great ways to help other people during this pandemic, from giving money to a local organization, to offering to bring groceries to a neighbor," says Comstock-Gay.
Now, a look at the astrologically challenged quarantiners. Know a Pisces, Aries or Libra? Reach out to them pronto. Or are YOU one of these signs? Practice asking for help.
