Aries: Taking out the trash

March 21 – April 19

You’re a leader, not a follower, Aries. So if you think you’re going to wait around for someone else in your family to take out the overflowing trash (or recycling), think again. You’re the type that will do it before anyone even asks/notices/reminds you.

Taurus: Watering the plants

April 20 – May 20

If you’re a Taurus, chances are you have a special bond with Mother Nature, meaning you have more of a green thumb than your fellow star signs. So any chores that involve nature—like watering the plants and gardening—are likely to be on your to-do list. Be sure to check out the houseplant that matches your Taurean vibe, too.

Cancer: Vacuuming

June 21 – July 22

If we had to define you in one word, Cancer, it would be homebody (and that’s not a bad thing!). And since you love where you live so much, dirty floors just aren’t going to cut it. Hence, if you had your choice of chores, you’d likely grab the vacuum cleaner.

Libra: Making the bed

September 23 – October 22

You’re a lot of great things, Libra: charming, happy, optimistic. But you’re also not that interested in house work. That means you like to 1) spend a lot of time in bed and 2) spend very little time doing chores. So changing the sheets and making your bed is about the extent of your chore duties.

Scorpio: Dusting

October 23 – November 21

The only thing that’s more mysterious than a Scorpio? How so much dust can accumulate on your furniture (and your baseboards) in just a week. Uncovering what’s beneath the grime is similar to the way people have to peel back your layers to get to know you, Scorp.

Sagittarius: Cleaning the bathroom

November 22 – December 21

Everything you do, you do enthusiastically, Sagittarius. And of all the spots in your house that deserve such a thorough cleaning the bathroom is number one (the toilet! the bathtub! the floor!). Just make sure you aren’t making these bathroom cleaning mistakes.

Capricorn: Scrubbing the floors

December 22 – January 19

It takes an admirable amount of self-discipline to remember to scrub the floor every week, let alone motivate yourself to actually do it. But thanks to your incredible work ethic, Cap, you’re on it—and as a result, your floors are sparkly clean.

Aquarius: Laundry

January 20 – February 18

Why fit in when you can stand out? That’s your motto, Aquarius, and one way to express your originality is through what you wear. All those clothes need to be washed before your next party, though, so laundry is something you’re probably pretty good at.

February 19 – March 20

You love getting creative in the kitchen, Pisces, so cooking dinner for the fam hardly feels like a chore to you. Whether you’re experimenting with a new air fryer recipe or whipping up everyone’s favorite comfort food, you’re always mixing it up (figuratively and literally).
