So there’s this ginormous snowstorm that’s about to hit the East Coast, which means one very exciting thing: Snow day! I mean, who doesn’t love a classic snow day? Playing outside? Hot chocolate in front of the fire? Watching television for the rest of the afternoon? Dreams. However, your idea of a snow day probably looks very different than mine based on your zodiac sign, which is why I put together a list of zodiac sign snow day ideas that will work best for you.
Based on your zodiac sign, your reaction to a snowstorm could either have been massively positive or fervently negative. For an Aries, Gemini, or Leo, your reaction to a snow day probably involved jumping for joy and screaming at the top of your lungs. If you're a Taurus or a Libra, you’re probably excited to have an excuse to stay in bed all day (either by yourself or cuddling your partner). For a Virgo or an Aquarius, you immediately thought of all the ways you can help those around you during the storm. And for the Capricorn? Forget it. Snow days are stupid and are a dumb excuse to stay home and not go to the office.
So your reaction for a snow day is much different than mine based on your zodiac sign, which is totally OK! You are uniquely you and should be spending the day that works the best for your personality. With that being said, here are the ways you should be spending a snow day based on your sign:
Aries: Make Plans With Friends
Aries are always the leader of the pack, which means that when it comes to snow day plans, it all depends on what you want. Which, of course, you have no objection with, because you absolutely adore being the one calling the shots. Be a visionary for the group this snow day and throw out a few ideas for plans in your group text with friends.
Taurus: Blankets, Books (And Maybe Even Booze)
Taurus loves being comfortable, which is why just throwing on your comfiest pair of sweatpants isn’t going to cut it for this snow day. You’re going to get the most out of the day if you cuddle up under your favorite blanket, grab your favorite feel-good read, and your favorite feel-good drink (could be boozy, or a decadent hot chocolate). Maybe even make a huge pot of mac & cheese... then eat it straight from the pot with a wooden spoon, of course.
Gemini: Invite Friends Over
Gemini’s are constantly wanting to develop relationships, which is why they likely will want their squad with them this snow day. Gather up your favorite rom-coms, have someone grab a bottle of wine, and enjoy a day (or even a whole night) in with your favorite people.
Cancer: Stay In Your Pajamas With Family Or Roommates
More than anything in the word, Cancers love being at home with family. So do exactly that! Stay at home with your family or roommates all day. Changing out of your pajamas is obviously not necessary.
Leo: Take Great Instagram Photos Outside
Leos are strong, dignified, and constantly want to get things done. So if you’re a Leo, I’m sure you’re finding this snow day to be the absolute perfect opportunity for an Instagram photo shoot. Who cares if it’s cold and windy, right? You’re strong and need to make the most of this snowy day.
Virgo: Shovel Driveways/Sidewalks For Neighbors
Virgo’s love helping others more than anything in the world, and will do anything for the greater good. Which is why you, Virgo, would probably much rather shovel your neighbor’s driveway then stay inside and twiddle your thumbs. If the weather is safe enough, find out who needs some help shoveling their walkway, or even offer an extra hand to dig out someone’s car.
Libra: Board Games With Significant Others Or BFFs
If you’re a Libra, you probably thought of all the things you could be doing with your significant other or best friend this snow day. You find the best version of yourself within your relationships, which is why you want to be doing an activity that requires teamwork. Like a board game!
Scorpio: Call A Long-Distance Friend
Scorpios want to make the most of their day, especially when it comes to reaching out to and learning about those around them. If you spend a whole day not learning about others or thinking about your goals, then you’ll probably feel defeated. Spend some time calling friends you haven’t talked to in a while and maybe hear about what they’ve been going through — particularly in terms of the election season, the current political climate, and their life at home. You’ll leave the conversation feeling full and accomplished.
Sagittarius: Read A Difficult Book, Or Watch Documentaries
Although snow days are merely elements of the current physical world, they also mean having more time to yourself. Sagittarius cares more about seeking the truth and their internal quest instead of worrying about material matters. If this is you, spend some time reading a new book about philosophy, or watch documentaries that really make you think and gain further perspective on your life.
Capricorn: Catch Up On Work Or Household Tasks, Or Maybe Even Start A New Project
Snow day? Eye roll. This is probably the reaction of a Capricorn, who thinks having a snow day is just a waste of time. They are ambitious, determined, and would rather spend a full day working and reaching their goals. If you’re a Capricorn, then you should take this time to catch up on work, household tasks, or a creative project that you’ve been wanting to start.
Aquarius: Make Cookies For Friends And Neighbors
Aquarius may not exactly be the type to shovel someone’s driveway, but they still have that itch to reach others and make the environment kinder for those around them. If you’re an Aquarius, create a warm and delightful experience for those around you by baking some cookies to give to your neighbors and friends.
Pisces: Play Outside And Enjoy The Snow
Honestly, for a Pisces, snow days could either be an absolute joy or be a source of absolute despair. That’s because Pisces feel their emotions deeply, and place great weight on that throughout their day. If you’re a Pisces, make the day enjoyable by just enjoying the snow. Go outside, play, smell the fresh crisp air, take a walk — or, if you would be happier inside under a blanket, do that instead! Just do whatever makes you the happiest.
