When you think of Blue Monday, what is the first thought that comes to your mind? You may feel sadness or gloom. Blue Monday falls on the third Monday of January, which happens to be on January 16th this year. It is said to be the saddest day of the year because, as you know, the post-holiday blues are tough to deal with.
The festivities are over, and there is nothing to look forward to in freezing temperatures. And the New Year’s resolutions you made are broken down at this point. And then this is also the time that your credit card bills are ready from the holidays. So yeah, it is a depressing time. So, how do you handle Blue Monday based on your zodiac sign?
Aries – Can Be Snappy And Irritable
Aries, you are passionate and energetic and always look for the positives in everything. However, that does not mean you are immune to Blue Monday. Once reality slaps you with work or school happening with no breaks on the horizon.
At the same time, you struggle with motivation because the weather is getting you down, and you may inadvertently take your frustrations out on others. You are irritable and snappy and may even say things you could later regret (and you do regret saying them) if someone interrupts you when you want to be alone. However, the best thing for you to do is a workout so you can feel better.
Taurus – Eats Something Delicious While Watching A Movie
Taurus, you are sensual, and the things that can make you feel better are the pleasant things you can touch, see, hear, taste, and smell. Your five senses can help you navigate through Blue Monday. Sure, you may have gained some pounds over the holidays, and you did stick to your resolution to remove those pounds. And usually, when you decide to do something, you stick to it.
However, Blue Monday will have an impact on you. How will you handle it? You will eat something delicious such as wings, pizza, or chocolate, and watch your favorite movie or television show to distract yourself.
Gemini – Very Aimless And Indecisive
Gemini, you are versatile and can be indecisive, but you also love being in the company of others. It would be best to talk to others, too, especially during Blue Monday, because even though you are typically upbeat, this day is getting to you. You may be the one that is aimlessly scrolling through social media and wondering what you want to read, who you want to talk to, or what you want to do.
One minute you decide to speak to a friend, another minute, you decide that you don’t want to talk to anyone. As a result, you are gloomy and more indecisive than usual on this Blue Monday. Just know the day will pass, the weather will get better, and you will return to your perky self.
Cancer – Closes Themselves Off
Cancer, you usually are very emotional, nurturing, and warm. However, when dealing with Blue Monday, you close yourself off because you are trying to process your emotions and the letdown after the holidays. You will do your house chores because you know they will not care for themselves.
However, once you are finished with them, you will head up to take a bath and then go to bed early, and you hope you will have a better day tomorrow as you are in tears that you do not want anyone to see.
Leo – Takes What Everyone Says Too Seriously
Leo, you try to be optimistic and warm, but you can be pretty sensitive to what others say when dealing with Blue Monday. You might think that others are critical of you for no reason when they could merely be giving you a suggestion. Therefore, you may lash out and tell them they have no right to be so hard on you.
Of course, that will confuse them, but this is how you handle your feelings. You are dealing with some big emotions, but your ego is suppressing them, which is how it comes out.
Virgo – Keeps Themselves Distracted
Virgo, you are very analytical and do not like acknowledging your feelings. But you are down, and after all, it is Blue Monday. Finally, however, you will push it aside and stay busy to distract yourself from those big feelings.
Therefore, you will do some cleaning, organizing, and setting appointments in your calendar, and you will also be doing some meal prepping. You will do whatever you need to do to stay productive because that is what you like to do, and you also stay that way, so you don’t have to think.
Libra – Suppresses Their Feelings
Libra, you are all about balance, and relationships. You are motivated to make others happy and do not want others to know that you are down because of Blue Monday. Therefore, you suppress it. And while you suppress your feelings, you fake happiness and may laugh and smile with others.
However, you will let out a few good cries when you are alone. It is hard for you to suppress such heavy feelings because you need balance, and when you feel blue, you are out of balance.
Scorpio – May Disappear From The World
Scorpio, you are intense and passionate, and you are also private. Like Libra, you would not want anyone to know how you feel on Blue Monday. However, the reasons are different. You do not like being vulnerable and will cut yourself off from the world on that day so you can process your emotions.
You will not answer texts or emails or accept calls. You know what is going on with yourself, and you may research Blue Monday to know when the feelings begin to pass. You will ride it out in the meantime.
Sagittarius – Focus On The Positive
Sagittarius, you are optimistic, and you love to have fun. But that does not mean you don’t have moments when you feel glum. And on Blue Monday, you will feel down because the festivities are over and the weather bleak.
However, you will not sit in those feelings. Instead, you will look at the positives in your life and look for the silver linings. And you will be the one to give those who are struggling with Blue Monday that it won’t last forever. Because soon enough, the weather will begin to improve.
Capricorn – It Is Business As Usual
Capricorn, you are all about goal-setting, ambition, and business. As a result, you may feel glum, and you are not the one who wants to talk about your feelings because there are more critical things to concentrate on in life. However, your feelings are just as important, and you need to acknowledge that.
Therefore, you may appear professional and act as if nothing is bothering you until you are in a private room; then, you will let the tears flow. However, don’t ignore your feelings all because you want to be professional, as doing that will harm your overall health.
Aquarius – Hangs Around Friends To Combat Blue Feelings
Aquarius, you are the one that is known to be progressive in your thinking, and you do your thing, and you also don’t like to acknowledge your emotions. However, Blue Monday will cause you not to ignore your feelings, and you will feel low and lonely.
Therefore the best thing you will handle it is by hanging around with friends who will take your mind off of your glum feelings. Perhaps you can go for dinner and over to the movie theatre to distract yourself, as long as the weather allows it.
Pisces – Gets Lost In Art Or Music
Pisces, you are highly emotional, artistic, sensitive, and empathetic. If Blue Monday is going to affect anyone, it will be you. Blue Monday will profoundly impact you, and the best way you can handle it is by getting lost in your art. You will spend hours painting, drawing, or writing poetry.
You may even write some songs if you are musically inclined. However, you have your imaginative side to help you through this time. And before you know it, you will imagine warmer weather which is not far away even though it feels as it is.
Blue Monday is challenging, as it is the third Monday of the year, on January 16th for this year. The best thing you can do is talk to others, distract yourself by doing things you enjoy, and focus on how the weather will improve. And look on the bright side. The days are getting a little noticeably longer, and that right there should give you some relief that this drab winter will not last forever because it never does! And maybe even start planning for summer vacation to take your mind off it even more!
