Have a Boredom-Free Weekend Based on Your Zodiac Sign


No weekend plans? With our usual routines in chaos, it’s hard to find things to do that don’t involve sitting on the couch all weekend. Or *shudder* doing chores. We’ve got a few fun suggestions for each sign of the Zodiac to try this weekend. This is a boredom-free zone!

Aries (March 21-April 19)

Spending time outdoors is essential for Aries. Fresh air, exercise, and sunshine can have a huge mood-boosting impact. Team sports are a no-go at the moment, but you can have fun without your buddies. Try an outdoor yoga sesh or go for a hike through your neighborhood.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

It’s not too late to plant some seeds, Taurus. Although you’ve missed the spring and early summer harvest, you can still grow a wide variety of flowers, vegetables, and herbs for fall. If you’re pressed for space, container gardening can be surprisingly successful.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

The last thing Gemini needs is a new hobby. You’re drawn to learning new things, but you get bored quickly if you aren’t challenged. Instead of ordering supplies for yet another project, search your home for unfinished business. Make it a point to complete as many of those projects as you can. You’ll feel super accomplished come Monday.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Making something with your hands–even if it isn’t great art–is a soothing and grounding pastime. A great medium for anyone, regardless of skill level, is air-dry clay. It’s cheap, widely available, and incredibly versatile. Best of all, the whole family can enjoy sculpting together. Once the clay is dry, you can paint it and seal it for treasures that’ll last a lifetime.

Leo (July 23-August 22)

Your usual weekend plans are in shambles right now, Leo. If you can’t go out and see your friends, then what’s the point? Take this opportunity to clear out your wardrobe of clothing you don’t wear anymore. Then bundle it up and donate to thrift shops or other charities. Just think of it as making space for new, even more fabulous clothes.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)

Virgo’s hobbies tend to be more intellectual. You might be a Sudoku fan, or maybe crossword puzzles or reading non-fiction. This weekend, get physical instead. Exercise, build something, clear out basement–whatever you do, engage those muscles to release happy endorphins. Your busy brain needs the break.

Libra (September 23-October 22)

Did someone say picnic? (Yes, it was me. I said it.) A picnic lunch with friends at a nearby park could be a lot of fun. However, don’t ignore the power of a carpet picnic at home. It’s more about breaking up your routine than anything else. Crack open a seltzer and feast on your favorite picnic treats.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

If you’ve been feeling cooped up–and who hasn’t, lately?–then here’s the perfect weekend project. Best of all, it won’t cost a dime. Rearrange the furniture in your home to make it feel like a brand-new space. Seriously, you’d be amazed at how much different you’ll feel just by moving your bed to the other side of the room.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)

If you can’t travel and shouldn’t hang out with friends, then why even get out of bed this weekend? It’s tough being an extrovert right now. If you can, hop in the car, fire up a favorite podcast, and take a road trip. If that’s not an option, try walking or biking along a different route than you usually take. It’s not much, but it’ll satisfy your wanderlust for the weekend.

Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

Capricorn, the last thing you need is to take on a big project this weekend. You work hard enough already! Put your to-do list aside–it’ll still be there on Monday–and just relax. Treat yourself to a home spa day, or curl up with a good book. Even if you only manage to chill for an hour or two, it’ll recharge your batteries.

Aquarius (January 20-February 18)

Helping others feeds your soul–and let’s face it, your soul is feeling pretty hungry right now. Making a difference, even if it’s from your living room, will help balance those karmic scales. Pick a cause that’s important to you and find a way to get involved this weekend.

Pisces (February 19-March 20)

Pisces do not thrive on boredom. If you don’t keep your mind busy, it’ll start worrying. Before you know it, you’re an anxious mess. This weekend, have some goofy, creative fun by acting out scenes from your favorite book or movie with your loved ones. Hey, if it’s good enough for Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner…
