Your sign says a lot about you. How you think, feel, and even socialize. For instance, I am an Aquarius. This means I enjoy talking about things that most people wouldn’t even know about. I love learning new things, but sometimes this makes me forget what’s going on around me – which could make for awkward or confusing conversations with others. To avoid this, I am sure I stay focused during conversations with friends instead of jumping around to new topics I’ve learned.
But even with this level of self-awareness maintaining a social life during this time can be quite a difficult task. Being cooped up at home will likely prompt feelings of loneliness no matter what sign you are, but how to connect based on your sign might help make the experience less stifling.
Recently, several hundred thousand, if not millions, of Americans have started working remotely, at the behest of their employers and in the interest of limiting the spread of the coronavirus. And for the foreseeable future, a group much bigger than that will, in accordance with encouragements to practice social distancing, start socializing remotely as well.
Even though we have to maintain a safe and healthy distance it’s important to stay connected. Humans crave social interaction but a coronavirus quarantine isn’t exactly the best way to cater to that—or is it? Experts note that during this time of social distancing and staying in, you don’t have to let your relationships fizzle.
There are ways to get closer without actually getting closer. The most important thing is to communicate virtually with each other. Sometimes you might feel like the only one affected by this whole situation but chances are there’s someone who can relate—or at least sympathize—with you in some way or another. Letting them know that there’s someone out there who understands might make their day better, even if it isn’t really comfortable for you personally.
With all things said and done, they’re still your loved ones. Without them in life what would you have left? Keep that in mind when keeping up with virtual connections strong during quarantine.
When having digital conversations it can be a good idea to know a little about your sign and the other person in order to make the most meaningful connection even when you aren’t in person. According to intuitive astrologers and healers and experts, the zodiac has much to say about the ways in which we connect with one another (1), and this is true even in the digital realm.
How to Connect Virtually Based on Astrology
ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
When it comes to communication, you grow easily impatient. You like to tell people like it is, even if that means you are hurting their feelings.

The conversations you do partake in are usually short and sweet. This is because you are the type of person who likes to make sure everything you say is well thought out.
You are an observer. You like to watch people’s tendencies and moods before you communicate with them. For you, Zoom is the way to go because you can at least get a visual reference.
GEMINI (May 22- June 21)
Geminis are great people to have conversations with- if the conversation can last long enough. Your attention span is relatively…short. But that is just because you get so excite, you want to talk about multiple things at once.

LIBRA (September 24- October 23)
