With no motivation to do anything much today, I was scrolling through Google news headlines on my phone and came across one entitled, 'Best indoor hobby for your zodiac sign' so I had a look. (I take astrology with a big pinch of salt, by the way...)

The first sign was Aries, my eldest, adult son's birth sign. He is about the most introverted person I know. His suggested hobby: Karaoke 😂

Here's the list so you can go online to get your supplies:

Aries - Karaoke
Pisces - Tarot reading
Aquarius - Digital art (that's me!)
Capricorn - Baking bread (my daughter who never cooks!)
Sagittarius - Learn a new language
Scorpio - Learn to play keyboard
Libra - Sewing
Virgo - Candle making
Leo - Doing make-up
Cancer - Cross stitch
Gemini - Dancing (my younger son)
Taurus - Candy making

Hoping to see the photos of everyone's progress in the fullness of time! 😂😂😂😂

Mine is Tarot reading from this list! Most definitely not me. I wonder who made these up?

Mine us bread making, I havent eaten it for 20 yearsgrin

I, a Leo, very seldom wear makeup (in the age of Zoom I've sometimes thought a bit of lippy and powder would help my pallid eek. Can I be Aquarius please? I'm doing a Masters in Film and TV studies and two days ago I submitted a 3,500 word critique of the work of Lillian Schwartz, the computer art pioneer.

Me? Cross stitch? I don't think so!!

tanith Wed 16-Dec-20 15:05:28

Cross stitch for me and funnily enough I’ve just taken it up again and it’s keeping me occupied for an hour or two a day.

Another candidate for digital art! I was banned from art classes at grammar school as I made such a mess ,of me and the rest of the class.

As I am a Taurean, I should be candy making. Used to do this when raising money at school fairs for charity, but after an unfortunate incident with a wayward pan of cinder toffee I haven't done any sweet making since the children were small Now I know where I have been going wrong! smile

Sewing ? grin

Situpstraight2 Wed 16-Dec-20 15:33:43

Well I’m on Virgo Leo cusp so I’m sitting in full make up , wittling a candle into something marvellous for Christmas.

DH and DD Cancer, DS Capricorn, drat, should have bought 2 cross stitching kits and a bread making machine for them to unwrap while I read my Tarot cards!

merlotgran Wed 16-Dec-20 15:37:06

Mine's dancing. I've got flat feet and arthritic knees! grin

MiniMoon Wed 16-Dec-20 15:39:01

Learn a new language! I don't think I'd have much use for it whichever one I chose to learn.

Luckygirl Wed 16-Dec-20 15:53:18

Candle-making for me......yawn!!

Urmstongran Wed 16-Dec-20 16:21:04

downtoearth I’ve just laughed out loud for the first time today reading your comment‼️
Thank you. Very witty.

Lucca Wed 16-Dec-20 16:22:46

I’m on the cusp of Capricorn and Aquarius, I’m massively untalented art wise and don’t like baking !

LauraNorder Wed 16-Dec-20 16:28:23

As a committed kitchen avoider, I'd rather change my birthday than make bread!

Rosalyn69 Wed 16-Dec-20 17:01:51

And making? “Shudders theatrically”.
My son is a Sag / learn a new language. He has never willingly learned anything.

annodomini Wed 16-Dec-20 17:18:22

I would like to see my GS's expression when I tell him (a Leo) that he should be doing make-up!

aggie Wed 16-Dec-20 17:22:44

Me keyboard.??? I gave up the piano years ago before it could rear up and toss me out !!!

I'm really glad I posted this. Your comments have given me a good laugh, especially Jaxjacky's!

lemongrove Thu 17-Dec-20 22:40:02

I can’t see me doing any of those things lizzy( felt tired just reading them)😄 you can imagine somebody having great fun compiling the list.

felice Fri 18-Dec-20 08:59:03

Leo here, what's make-up ??????????
DD Scorpio, has never gone near a musical instrument since she broke a friends guitar age 6. 10 fat fingers.

Anniebach Fri 18-Dec-20 09:00:45
