This Is What Your Next 2 Weeks Of Lockdown Will Look Like According To Your Zodiac Sign
Astrologer Sara Elise tells us how best to tackle the inside time.
Torontonians are spending more time inside than maybe ever before, so why not use that time for a bit of introspection?
There are 20 days left in Toronto's month-long lockdown, which means there is still a lot of time to utilize before heading outside on December 21 as more fully realized people.
So, Narcity spoke toexpert Sara Elise and asked her to provide some much-needed insight into what each sign can expect from the rest of their indoor time.
Sara Elise is a professional astrologer in Toronto, where she offers natal readings, children's readings, relationship charts, and astrological coaching.
Aries (March 20 to April 19)
Elise says that Aries needs to get outside during the lockdown to fight back against frustration, lethargy, and even anger.
"While venting on social media may initially feel like a good way to express energy, finding a healthier outlet may be a better long-term sanity solution," Sara Elise says.
"Try leaving your house every day at least once. Explore a new park, go for moonlit hikes, even just walk around the block! Remember, Aries, you are built for freedom and movement. So give yourself that gift over the next few months. It will help keep your fire in check."
Taurus (April 19 to May 20)
Taurus might be thrilled with the chance to curl up and cocoon themselves through the lockdown, but Elise says they need to face their fears.
"We know your stores of non-perishables are in order, but what about emotionally nourishing support systems? Make sure you reach out to those you love and those who love you, and try and create some lifelines that are easy to access when you are feeling anxious," says Elise.
"A quarantine buddy to give you a hug is a wonderful gift, but if you are alone, realize your loved ones are always close at hand — and make sure you initiate contact! And you are so sensitive — maybe lay off the news, if you start to feel too upset," she says.
Gemini (May 20 to June 20)
Sara Elise says that Gemini has to get out of their own head over the next two weeks and get into their body instead.
"The temptation, of course, is to work yourself to the bone and become a bona fide technology zombie. If you can give yourself the gift of time away from the screen, focused on something real and tangible, you may come out of this feeling like a human," says Elise.
"Try cooking, soaking in a bath (yes, you can have a podcast on), cleaning forgotten drawers, reading an actual book that is NOT on a screen, or even partaking in some good old board game action! Trust me — your brain and body will thank you."
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)
It's project time for Cancer, says Sara Elise, whether that's a digital photo album for each of their friends or a calendar of memories for their family.
"Your creativity and love can light a sense of connectedness in these strange dislocated times," Elise says.
"By bringing a sense of togetherness to your loved ones, you nourish them and yourself in the process."
Leo (July 22 to August 22)
"Take charge, Leo, and rally the troops!" says Sara Elise.
Leo should use their skills of igniting passion and playfulness to good effect over the next few weeks, the astrologer says.
"Weird party games by Zoom, starting a ‘chain letter,’ hosting an online book club — there are many ways you can use your leadership qualities to bring spirits higher," says Elise.
"Try not to fall into melodrama, however. See yourself as a beacon to help others lift above their malaise! Your dignified commanding energy will be appreciated."
Virgo (August 23 to September 22)
Sara Elise says that this time alone is "absolutely perfect" for Virgo, who can benefit from the time to reflect and collect their energy.
"You can get so busy! So focused on fixing! Let yourself enjoy this time," she says. "Really relish in the feeling of not having a to-do list, and then allow yourself to do something that actually fills your heart with joy."
"What is that project you’ve put off for so long because it just isn’t practical? What is that passion you’ve forgotten in the wake of "real life"? Re-engage with your love of doing things just because they feel good. You will be grateful for it."
Libra (September 23 to October 22)
It's time to reclaim your space, Libra!
"Instead of pacing like a caged leopard, give yourself permission to really own your experience. Ambiance, design, lighting, music, smell … taking care of your surroundings makes you feel amazing," Sara Elise says.
"Making your home truly a temple will remind you that you are a temple. Your internal spaces mirror your external. You know it’s true," she says.
"So revel in the beauty, Libra. It is yours."
Scorpio (October 23 to November 21)
There are plenty of ways for Scorpio to satisfy their need for depth right now, Sara Elise says, whether that's with rich cocoa or eclectic music.
"Winter season suits you fine, as you dip into the darkness with ease. Just make sure this winter you have enough substance to chew on," Elise advises.
"What is something you’ve been meaning to learn? What are you fascinated by, but haven’t unearthed yet? Now’s the time to satisfy your cravings and take the plunge. So much awaits you!"
Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21)
"I’m so sorry, Sagittarius," says Sara Elise. "This sort of situation is not suited to your voracious appetite for experience. Where’s a Centaur to go when all the fun stuff’s closed down?"
Now's the time for intentional connection, the astrologer says.
"Make phone dates, do Zoom calls, go for socially distanced walks… whatever it takes, try to share your time and your blessings. Your expansiveness needs to express toward the other, and your fire needs to burn bright," she says.
"So try not to socially isolate completely. Expand, dear Sagittarius! Within the limits of your confinement, do your best to light the darkness for those around you."
Capricorn (December 22 to January 19)
You're in luck, Capricorn — Sara Elise says this lockdown period is all about joy.
"Really. Just pure joy. Can you feel it? Can you prioritize it? Where is your laughter, your happiness? What alights in you a deep chuckle?" asks the astrologer.
"Hunt it out, dear Capricorn. Make it your mission. Pull up old hilarities. Monty Python, anyone? How about old episodes of SNL, long forgotten? This is a great time to find a deep inner sense of joviality and gratitude. The inner smile. When else have you had this much time to just be?"
Aquarius (January 20 to February 18)
Time for Aquarius to take their expansive vision and narrow it down into a one-pointed mission, says Sara Elise.
"What is your goal? What is your purpose? You are primed to be a leader right now, primed to really take things in your life to the next level," she says.
"This time, for you, is productive! Beyond productive, it can be life-changing. Take the reins. Quell the restlessness. Focus the energy. We need you to lead us into our new world, after all."
Pisces (February 19 to March 20)
Pisces should use the lockdown time to reflect and see just how vast and wide their dream can become.
"It is time to clean house, literally and figuratively, and bring forgiveness into dark corners you may be harboring. Facing old fears, long-held troubles — liberate yourself," Elise says.
"Make a project of it! Clean the closets! Scrub the baseboards! Disinfect the light switches! Make a list of all the things you are letting go of — and burn it!"
