This Is What You’d Do On A Deserted Island, Based On Your Zodiac Sign / Epicurean

Aries (March 21st – April 19th)

With your laid back attitude and your positivism, not even landing on a lost island with zero phone signal and no population scares you. You inspect everything curiously before considering planning a way out. You carve yourself a stick to make a weapon of sorts, start looking for a source of clean water, study the vegetation to find something edible and eventually climb the mountain too. Then, you take a good breathe, sit, take a nap, and wake up at dusk with dozens of small, wet frogs on top of you.

Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)

Bull on an island? You become concerned. You switch fast from panic tantrums to deliberate choices that can pull you out of this dreaded, scary situation. You inspect everything thoroughly and decide to camp somewhere presumably safe, while it’s still daylight. You cover yourself in mud so that you don’t seem to noticeable to wild animals or any human inhabitants that the island may still have. You look for food and wood to make a small cabin for yourself where you can sit safe and analyze the rest of possibilities you have from now on.

Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)

As the Peter Pan of the zodiac, you sure like to explore. You’re not scared of being secluded forever, but you embrace your inner Robinson Crusoe as it comes and take on the challenge to see what you can make of this adventure. You start by building a fire on a hill top in hopes this will attract ships to the island and get rescued. You walk all across the island to see if there’s anything human left. You hunt wild birds and catch fish to make yourself dinner. You start a journal and keep the fire burning every day.

Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)

You’re shit scared, but you pull yourself together after a couple days of insane crying under a palm. You choose your new home on top of the hill, to make sure you have a 360 degrees clear picture of your surroundings day and night. You light the fire each night to draw attention to ships. You craft a lot of things for yourself and write down every day’s experience. You eat a lot of coconuts and fried fish.

Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)

You start making an escape plan. You consider all your surroundings and start collecting wood and other natural materials to manufacture a boat. You trial and error for a couple weeks, then you have a solid formula. You make provisions and hunt for a few days straight before you decide to leave. You hop into the raft and leave yourself at the mercy of the ocean, hoping to get saved.

Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)

You’re horrified. For the first week, you just lie there in shock, wondering what to do. You grow anxious over the idea you might as well die here. Eventually, you decide to write S.O.S. in huge capital letters on the sand each morning and wait.

Libra (September 23rd – October 22nd)

If this happens to you, you almost certainly will ask the question, “How did I end up here?”. You’re actually an escape master, but this is somewhat scary for you. The prospect of not knowing how to leave a secluded paradise is worse than being turned down by a million girls or guys. You collect yourself and look for ways out. After you say a prayer to your new premises to protect you from spiders, sharks and other beasts that may roam, you being crafting a raft and preparing yourself to sail.

Scorpio (October 23rd – November 21st)

You write HELP on the sand and set it on fire. You carve tools and you hunt. You learn to communicate with nature. You start taking better care of yourself and you become hyper intuitive. You leave traces so that you can remember where you’ve already been and build forts across the island to have several safe nests. You develop great suntan.

Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st)

You spend as much of the night as possible studying the sky to see if anything looks familiar, to help determine latitude. Then you move to the highest part of the island to spend time studying the horizon. You write a message and put in the only bottle you saved, and throw it into the ocean.

Capricorn (December 22nd – January 19th)

You’re happy! Great natural food, lavish virgin beaches, plenty of water and relaxation, and mostly no annoying people to deal with. You accept that you are here probably for a good reason and start your new life with enthusiasm and curiosity. You make it into a fun adventure.

Aquarius (January 20th – February 18th)

You start by cutting some of the thinnest trees and roll them towards the beach. Build a raft, bring plenty of dried fish and fruits on board, use your clothes to protect yourself from the sun and big leaves to blow some wind. You fill coconuts with fresh water and take them with you. You pray to all winds and God to not drown or get eaten by a shark.

Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)

You’d talk to yourself a lot, become creative even. You’d start investigating how to brew your own alcohol, as that would greatly contribute to productivity and comfort of life. You’d start writing a book and fermenting palm seeds and mango fruits inside coconuts and sea shells.  Thought Catalog Logo Mark
