Thanksgiving Break Adventures for Each Sign

Ms. Constellation Prize

Tuesday, Nov. 22 is the beginning of the 2022 Sagittarius season. Spend time with your Sagittarius friends and let them rub off on you. Sagittariuses are notorious for loving adventures and being spontaneous. Regardless of your star sign, you should lean into any desire you have to travel or to do something new! Sagittariuses know how to make everything an adventure, even the smallest activities. It’s just about having the right attitude. 


Here’s a new activity each sign should try over our short but sweet Thanksgiving break:

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

At your core, you’re fiercely independent. This Thanksgiving, you should take a solo trip, something you’ve been wanting to do for a long time. This could be driving out to Chicago by yourself or going alone to the Strand to see a movie. The important part is you do something for yourself.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

During Thanksgiving Break, make every effort to go to an artistic place. Try to spend the day at an art museum, whether that be the Grinnell College Museum of Art or your hometown’s art museum. And take some company with you!

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

Time to move your body, Aquarius, and what better way to celebrate the changing season than ice skating! Spend a day in a city, go ice skating and get hot chocolate afterward. Make sure you layer up for the excruciating winter.

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)

Do whatever it takes to get yourself to a concert over break and listen to live music. Dance with friends and strangers any chance you get. Live music will fuel your adventurous spirit and maybe even inspire you to start recruiting your friends for an even bigger adventure over winter break.

 Aries (March 21 – April 19)

It goes against your nature to go on an adventure without extensive planning, so, to appease that, plan the party of the semester. This will be the best situation for you: an adventure without any spontaneity. Host the pre-Thanksgiving Moo$e and invite everyone on campus. This will satiate your social side before a break!

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Take an adventure that shows off your competitive side! Drag your parents to a bowling alley or to an axe-throwing place. If you can’t embark on a formal adventure, turn Thanksgiving dinner into an adventure and a competition. Win the night by making the best mashed potatoes and showing up your least favorite aunt.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

An adventure doesn’t mean chaos — an adventure for you should be something that gives you room to relax. Make your way down to a spa or to get a massage, and take a break from everything! Your life has been clashing with Scorpio season and it’s time to recover.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

You know how people say that you can’t throw money at a problem? Well, Cancer, you need to rebel: DO throw money at the problem. Go shopping. Take an adventure to an out-of-town mall and buy that purse you have had your eye on for a couple months.

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)

Try to figure out how you take an adventure that involves you swimming this break. This could mean doing some laps at the Natatorium, finding the pool at your hotel or jumping into an ice-cold lake in your hometown! Immerse yourself in water and enjoy the adrenaline rush incited by the freezing temperature. 

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)

Virgo, Thanksgiving itself is the biggest adventure of the year to you. Planning the perfect meal and correctly timing your courses will put you in the best mood until winter break. Revel in the holiday spirit and enjoy knowing that you hosted an unforgettable Thanksgiving.

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

Libra, you don’t need a huge adventure this month. You should indulge in some rest and relaxation. To satiate your desire for adventure during this Sagittarius season, don’t venture and rather do something safe: try a new flavor of Ben & Jerry’s! Add cocoa powder to your iced chai with oat milk!

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

Take a crush or partner on a hiking or camping trip. Make it an intimate getaway with rose petals and chocolates. It’s not your typical behavior to make a big gesture for a lover, but the adventure for you is trying something new and selfless.
