If you’re not sure what creative pursuit to try next, simply look to the stars. Believe it or not, astrology can help you find a new hobby that perfectly fits your personality. Find your sign below and get ready to try something new!
Aries (March 21-April 19)
You should try: jewelry making
The fiery and passionate Aries tends to give everything they have to the people and things they commit to. So a giftable craft like making your own jewelry is a perfect fit. Also important: these projects can easily be done solo, so independent Aries can bead away on her own terms.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)

They don’t call you a bull for nothing! As a strong-willed Taurus, you are dependable, creative and ambitious — making you amenable to a new project that may require a bit more of a time commitment. Your dedication to the details and unwillingness to fail make Tunisian crochet a craft you’ll start and be sure to finish (which not everyone can say).
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
You should try: cooking
Gemini twins are incredibly versatile, social and oftentimes described as chameleons that can adapt to any and all situations.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)
You should try: yoga
Perhaps the most intuitive sign of the zodiac, Cancers are usually called psychic at least once in their life. Not only do you often have a natural connection with other people and things, but you are overly compassionate. Could yoga be any more perfect for you, instinctual Cancer? Namaste.

You should try: fashion design
The trailblazers of the zodiac, you are bold, ambitious and proud to be exactly who you are. You can (and usually do) befriend anyone and everyone, and people naturally look to you for leadership and comradery.

Express yourself with what you’re wearing and be unapologetically you — people will love it.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
You should try: hand sewing
Smart, sophisticated, organized. These are just a few of the many words to describe the practical Virgo.
