Leo

July 23 – August 22

You’d really hoped  that COVID-19 wouldn’t affect your summer plans, but even kings and queens of the jungle can’t stop the pandemic’s reign. Instead of subjecting your buddies to the weird vibes of a virtual birthday bash, look into a solo soiree. Google “DIY hammock” and try your hand at building a wallet-friendly personal napping throne. Then, swing yourself into sweet dreams of economic stability.

Virgo

August 23 – September 22

You wouldn’t mind if your life became a little more exciting, Virgo—in a controlled, non-spontaneous way, of course. Make room for new things by organizing what you’ve already got: your herbs and spices, for example, could really stand to be arranged alphabetically in identical glass jars. If you’re feeling really wild, look into mounting them on the inside of your cabinet with magnets. Spicy.

Libra

September 23 – October 22

Stop scrolling through the good old days, you rampant reminiscer. Now’s the time to actually get some photos developed (yes, in real life) and display them as an homage to the large gatherings you once thrived in.

Scorpio

October 23 – November 21

Maintaining long-distance relationships is exhausting, and you’re feeling a little burned out. Lean in to your sensual side and try making your own scented candles—lemongrass will help you get a grip.

Sagittarius

November 22 – December 21

You might not consider yourself a writer, but you’ll want to look back on these “unprecedented times.” Start keeping your own journal; a notebook won’t get tired of your ramblings. Put it online if you’re
feeling extra brave.

Capricorn

December 22 – January 19

If you’re gonna DIY, you’re gonna do it right. Making pasta from scratch is the perfect task for your focused nature, and sharing it will help connect you to buddies outside your bubble.

Aquarius

January 20 – February 18

We’re loving this big-picture thinking, Aquarius, but don’t forget about the small stuff. Take a day to stitch up the holes in your socks.

Pisces

February 19 – March 20

It’s been a difficult year for the community-minded, and making your own non-medical face mask is something you can do for yourself and others. We recommend a fun print. Polka dots, for example.

Aries

March 21 – April 19

As a headstrong Aries, you should really work on your attention to detail...some other time. It’s summer. Measure yourself an at-home cocktail (or free-pour, who cares)
and call it a day.

Taurus

April 20 – May 20

You’re feeling a little cooped up indoors, and stepping outside comes with its own stresses. Start propagating plants from kitchen scraps to bring some more greenery into your digital-age digs.

Gemini

May 21 – June 20

Crafting is right up your creative alley, but you’ve got a million DIY tips saved and a healthy case of decision paralysis. Try a removable wallpaper or two; fabulousness is fleeting.

Cancer

June 21 – July 22

You’ve been trying to be less sarcastic, and nothing prevents a snarky rebuttal like stirring up an at-home face mask and letting it harden like a shell on your sensitive skin.
