As an introvert and writer, I have always found the virtual connection in the form of texts or emails the easiest. So, you can imagine that current circumstances (although far from ideal in any sense) really offered me a relief from the personal communication styles that most stress me out; however, I have received several unplanned calls from FaceTime since the blockade started and let me just say, this is my worst nightmare (based on communication) – especially since I have no excuse for not answering.
My astrological sign, it seems, could have predicted that I might have a hard time with that sort of thing. According to the intuitive astrologer and healer Rachel Lang, the zodiac has a lot to say about the ways we connect, and this is true even in the digital world. Below, she analyzes the struggles and strengths of all 12 signs.
The type of digital connector you are, according to astrologer Rachel Lang
This is your opportunity to show the world what you have and to spread it – spread your message and be heard. When communicating with other people, you prefer succinct communication that gets to the point. You should be careful, though, because the text is nuanced; what you consider direct communication can be misinterpreted as blunt.
Nothing is as good as a face-to-face connection to Taurus, a tactile earth sign. For you, Zoom is the way to go because you can at least get a visual reference. In addition, Zoom has a setting that allows you to improve your appearance, which is useful for a sign ruled by Venus (the planet of beauty) because when you look better, you feel better.
Communication is very important to you. You are likely to be on Skype on your computer, texting a friend on your phone and managing your social media messages on your iPad … all at the same time. I think Geminis also love to talk on the phone; you will want to connect for real conversations whenever possible.
Of all the signs, you are probably the most suitable for this quarantine; after all, your sign has to do with home. This is a time to cook, clean and spend time with your family. For virtual communication, phone and text work well for you – anything that allows you to keep your clothes comfortable or wrapped in a blanket and snuggle up with your pet.
Use this as an opportunity to build an online platform for you to showcase your talent. Broadcast your latest ideas, comedies or performances on IGTV or Facebook. Start a YouTube page. Although you can be a strong leader during a Zoom meeting, you are more likely to use social media for communication. Think of Instagram as a big party and connect with as many people as you can.
Instead of video or phone, you may be more inclined to rely on written communication during this period, such as texts, messages or e-mail. That way, you can check what you’re sending and make sure you’re saying the perfect words to get your messages across. In video chats, you are an observer. You pay attention to subtle tips, so this medium works well for you, especially Skype and Zoom.
As one of the most social signs of the Zodiac, you may miss connecting with IRL people more than others. Organize to host Zoom parties or Google hangouts. Gather your closest friends for an online meeting and the more the better. Zoom also has this great feature where you can improve your appearance. This was done for Libra. You care about how you look, even when you’re wearing sweatpants.
When you communicate, you do it on three levels at the same time. You listen to what is being said, intuit what is not being said and calculate what must be said to influence an outcome. You are strategic in your communication, even virtual. It is easier for you to pick up these subtle clues during video chats, FaceTime, Zoom or Skype calls. Texts are always a good starting point, but for real and in-depth conversations, you want to put them online. Seeing someone’s facial expressions helps you read their body language and tune in to what is not being said.
This time can be more challenging for you than other signs. After all, you appreciate freedom above all and you probably don’t love restrictions. You are also always on the go. In your virtual communication, you like the simplicity of the texts. Fast and direct communication. In addition, you can use emojis when words are not enough. It can be overwhelming to be stuck on the phone or on a Skype call for a long time, as your attention span may not last long. Therefore, you are more likely to have several short interactions with different people throughout the day. Keep things light and fun; nothing too heavy now.
You are the first to find ways to stay productive at home because you are motivated and don’t want anything to stop you. You can easily adapt to new platforms or technologies because you take the time to learn them. When it comes to virtual communication, you are direct, direct and clear. You are a practical communicator with a time limit that you don’t want to spend all day on a call. You have things to do. You have mastered the art of ending before the call goes on for too long.
You were made for the virtual connection and you probably have a good relationship with technology. After all, your sign is associated with technology and innovation. If you feel late, you will catch up and become a master of virtual connections. Like the air signs, Libra and Gemini, you need to connect with other people and share ideas. Use social media for your social channels, to discover new groups online or make new friends. When it comes to existing friends, you’re the one who should start a FaceTime or Zoom happy hour together. You can discover new ways to connect with old friends. This is a part of a general expansion / change of life that you are going through with Saturn entering your sign.
If you have regular problems with technology, this can be a frustrating time for you. You will probably need to trust your ESP. We have probably evolved to the point where we are communicating by telepathy, and you can start the trend. Use this as an opportunity to increase your intuition and develop your spiritual gifts.
If you need help to calm down, here are the best self-cleaning techniques for you, based on your sign. In addition, some tips on how to deal with stress that you can learn from everyone else in the zodiac.
