How Best to Tackle Those Spring Cleaning Chores, Based on Your Zodiac Sign

Anyone else really want to clean their house with a Leo now?


The weather is warming up, the birds are chirping, and alas, it's time to spring clean...again.

Even if you've already ditched everything that doesn't bring you joy, chances are you have a few more projects that need your attention.

From organizing and purging to scrubbing and sanitizing, here's how to tackle your spring cleaning chores, based on your zodiac sign.

Aries (March 21–April 20)

You crave independence so it's best you tackle these jobs solo. Not only will it provide you with some much-needed solitude, but you're much more likely to get the job done right and to your high standards if you take matters into your own hands.

Taurus (April 21–May 20)

You might be a little hard to motivate at first, so schedule your spring cleaning session ahead of time. Once you (finally) start, it will be smooth sailing from there. You believe in doing the job yourself, and doing it right the first time, so with a bit of motivation it will be done (the right way) in no time.

Gemini (May 21–June 20)

Geminis love social interactions, so why not enlist the help of a friend while tackling a big project like organizing your attic or cleaning and purging your closet? Say thanks with pizza and wine, or return the favor for them—it's always better when you're with a friend!

Cancer (June 21–July 22)

You're a bit of a homebody, and enjoy spending time being comfy and cozy in your own quarters. Because of this, chances are you won't have too much to tackle this season, because you already take pride in maintaining a clean and organized environment.

Leo (July 23–August 22)

High-energy and passionate, you'll want to pump up the jams while sprucing up. Let your guard down and let loose, singing, dancing, and whistling while you work. Keep your energy up and goals in mind, and your place will be gleaming in no time.

Virgo (August 23–September 22)

You're hardworking and organized, but you always strive to be even better. So focus more of your time on organizing than actually cleaning and scrubbing. Stock up on closet organizers, decorative bins and other storage solutions so everything can be in the proper place—which will make you extremely satisfied.

Libra (September 23–October 22)

Decision making is not your strong suit, and you've been known to overthink even the smallest of tasks. This will make purging a bit of a challenge but a necessary one, nonetheless. Enlist the help of your partner or best friend in helping you figure out what to keep, donate, and toss. Sometimes an extra ear is all you need.

Scorpio (October 23–November 21)

You're ambitious, persistent, and determined which means you've probably been looking forward to getting your place in tip-top shape for quite some time. And if not, no worries—you're personality will make it a breeze. Make a list, check it off as you go, and you'll be driven by the feeling of accomplishment.

Sagittarius (November 22–December 21)

You're known for being a risk taker, but be sure not to take any impulsive risks while crossing off your to-do list. While shortcuts might be tempting, remember safety first. And that means no climbing on stacks or strange balancing acts in the process.

Capricorn (December 22–January 19)

Perfectionists like Caps are known for their attention to detail and their tendency to go overboard. So try to use these traits in your favor as you tackle smaller jobs like scrubbing grout and dusting tiny knick-knacks.

Aquarius (January 20–February 18)

You don't like feeling cooped up and need air often. So don't try to tackle all your tasks in a day. Instead, break it up so you can still find a balance between work and fun. Day by day you'll finish everything without feeling like you sacrificed your "me time," which is important to you.

Pisces (February 19–March 20)

Pisces have a love and appreciation for music and have been that way since birth. So all the motivation you'll need to conquer your cleaning projects can be provided by playing your favorite tunes. Make a playlist ahead of time with tunes that can keep you going.
