If worse comes to worse and they have nothing to do, they'll give their whole house a good cleaning. Aries will do anything to stop being bored.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

One thing Geminis can't stand is boring people. When a Gemini gets bored in a conversation, they'll become even more talkative and outgoing.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

They tend to be very focused on their emotions and the needs of others, which does help them stay busy.

Shared activities help Cancers to escape their boredom.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

This sign isn’t a fan of being bored, so when they are… they do whatever they can to stop it. They love to go shopping and buy presents, or go to the movies and have lunch, or maybe hit an open mic and do some kind of performing, which is good because they love the attention. Leos will always be on the lookout for adventure, entertainment, and excitement if they’re bored.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Whatever it is they discover, they’ll learn everything about it.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

When a Libra is bored, they catch up on their social media: they take selfies to post on Instagram or use fun filters on Snapchat. They might tweet something funny or send all their friends a funny meme. If they’re feeling serious, they’ll create a vision board too. Doing these like this, helps them be mentally stimulated and creative, and helps Libras move forward with their goals, no matter what they are.

They absolutely detest being bored — it practically sucks the life out of them! If they feel like…. they're on the edge of being bored, they'll do something immediately to change things up. Sagittarians love to try new things. They’re the kind of friend that will randomly invite you out but not tell you where you're going or will go on a last minute trip with you.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

This hardworking sign is only bored when they really have nothing to do, it’s actually rare for them to be bored. When they do find themselves bored they can’t stand it because they feel unproductive. It's very difficult for a Capricorn to unwind and relax, so when they've finished one project, they'll start a new one before they've even had time to decompress.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

They can become bored if their work doesn't push them to grow and expand their mind. When they get bored, they tend to get a little cranky and can take it out on the people around them. The best thing an Aquarius can do to stop being bored is to go off by themselves, preferably in nature where they can hear themselves think. Even just a walk around the block is good for them, so long as they're moving and alone. Once their brain is stimulated again, it's okay for them to go back and be with people.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

When this sign is feeling bored, they go to the carnival that is their mind. They have an amazing fantasy life and when they get lost in their imagination, not only aren't they ever bored but it stimulates their creativity. Pisces can daydream for hours. However, at some point, they need to express their ideas.
