What’s your favorite part of fall? Is it crisp mornings spent cozied up in bed sipping coffee? Is it the first pumpkin-spiced anything of the season? Regardless of where you live, the fall is a time to refresh your routines, get outdoors, and, most importantly, revel in the cozy vibes this season brings.

If you’re ready to celebrate the dawn of autumn from the comfort of your home, your star sign can guide you to the autumnal activities you should try to bring a touch of warmth and spice to your space. 

Aries (March 21-April 19): Redecorate your living room for maximum coziness.

Aries love a project, so what better time than the beginning of fall to rearrange a room and lean into the cozy vibes? Consider putting up curtains in place of the A/C unit or swapping out the art on the walls for pieces with autumnal or jewel tones. Even a few new throw pillows can rejuvenate a room.

Taurus (April 20-May 20): Splurge on a luxe new blanket.

Taureans want to feel grounded, but they also have a taste for the finer things in life. This fall, indulge your impulse to get fancy and upgrade your blanket game with a super-soft throw blanket, from a soft and luxurious cashmere to a warm, textural wool.

Gemini (May 21-June 20): Bake a pie completely from scratch.

Gemini’s dual nature lends itself perfectly to the wholesome, yet meticulous work of baking a pie — and that includes mixing and rolling the dough yourself. Whether you choose pumpkin, apple, or blueberry, you’ll have fun mastering a new skill and crafting something delicious to enjoy later with friends or family.

Cancer (June 21-July 22): Have a staycation. 

Home is where the heart is for a Cancer, so instead of booking a weekend trip at a cabin, bring the vacation vibes to you! Clear your schedule and do only the things you really want to do: Go for a long walk and explore a new part of your city or neighborhood, try a new restaurant, and book a massage or try an at-home spa night. 

Leo (July 23-August 22): Throw an autumnal dinner party.

Leos thrive amongst others and love a good party. Welcome the fall with a warm, Leo-style hug and invite some pals over for a night of scintillating conversation, delicious in-season foods, and maybe, if you’re lucky, some at-home karaoke. Keep the circle small for safety and intimacy!

Virgo (August 23-September 22): Get into aromatherapy.

As an earth sign, Virgos are deeply connected to the world around them and feel at peace in nature. Bring that calming vibe indoors with aromatherapy and harness the power of plants to help you unwind. May I suggest a long, hot bath with some Kneipp Relaxing Lavender Bath Oil, or adding a few drops of amber essential oil to a diffuser on a quiet afternoon?

Libra (September 23-October 22): Swap your summer and fall wardrobes.

It’s time to bust out the black leather jacket and fun sweaters! Libras are one of the most fashionable, trend-setting signs of the zodiac, so when temps begin to drop, you can refresh your wardrobe with a few new pieces and bring out your fall favorites. Take a rainy afternoon to bring out your cold-weather favorites and box up summer clothes; you may even find a few pieces to donate or sell in the process.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21): Decorate for Halloween.

For a spooky Scorpio, it’s never too early to pull out the Halloween decor! This year, feel free to upgrade your candle game and buy some chic pillars or incense to set the mood for tarot readings and scary movies. Add a touch of black lace to your table or hang a few bats near the window to let your neighbors know you’re ready for spooky season.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21): Head to the pumpkin patch.

Even something as simple as visiting the local pumpkin patch or stand will appeal to a Sag’s constant wanderlust, and the monumental task of choosing the perfect pumpkin to decorate your home will feel like an adventure with a Sag on board. (Don’t forget to stop for cider or mulled wine.) Of course, you’ll want to follow any social distancing regulations and mask up when needed, but Sags don’t mind masking if there’s an activity on the horizon!

Capricorn (December 22-January 19): Tuck into your fall reading list.

Capricorn is one of the most ambitious signs of the zodiac, but they also love to relax. Blend the two by getting a head start on your reading list; pick a comfortable spot in your space, like a favorite chair or snuggled up in bed, and crack the spine of your latest read. Pro tip: Put your phone away so you can really focus. The group chat can wait!

Aquarius (January 20-February 18): Make care packages for friends and family.

Aquarians are all about spreading love and helping others. What better way to bring a dose of fall cheer to the people you love than making them a sweet fall-themed care package to remind them you’re thinking of them? Consider adding a few pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, a spicy autumnal votive candle, a favorite book or cozy socks, and a thoughtful note to brighten up their season. 

Pisces (February 19-March 20): Paint a fall scene. 

Pisces are empathetic and creative types who love finding new ways to express their many feelings. Break out the watercolors and let the colors and moods of fall inspire you. When you’re done with your masterpiece, frame it and hang it up in the hallway where visitors can admire your talents.
