What is your coping mechanism when things don’t work out the way you want them to?
Life can be a little too much at times, and then we feel the need to escape our reality, if not at all, then at least for some time!
We all have our own way of dealing with circumstances and an activity or place to retreat to. For some it’s reading a book, slipping in bed, a series of binge drinking, and for others it’s just meditation.
And sometimes our coping mechanisms are not healthy for us, but we do them anyway.
Read on to learn each zodiac sign’s coping mechanism and how to escape reality.
1. Aries (March 21st – April 19th)
The dreamy Aries always have one thought or another in their head. Especially when faced with a difficult situation or failure, their mind space becomes cluttered with disjointed thoughts. That makes them irritable. To get away from reality, they do a lot of physical training and exercises. From cardio, hands-free, any way you want! You sweat away the stress to reach a calmer and cluttered free reality. You stand on the sweat-covered escape.

2. Taurus (April 20th to May 20th)
The tenacious Taurus take a lot of time to deal with change and failure. They like the feeling that everything is fine in their world! And you have to admit that Netflix gives you the ultimate oasis when your world sinks into chaos. I understand you the cops why you make so much love binge-watching movies and TV series on Netflix! Let’s face it, nothing beats getting lost in someone else’s happy story.
3. Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Oh, the charming and talkative twins lead full-sized lives … uh … gossip-sized, I mean! Their form of escape from reality is in the form of gossip and long conversations in which they repeatedly complain about what is going wrong in their life and complain about the people who have wronged them. This gives them confirmation that “oh yeah, my life sucks because of this person X”.
4. Cancer (June 21 to July 22)
The eternally romantic cancer specialists live on a binge reading love stories and are happy until the end of their days! They’d be more likely to faint if Eric Segal’s love life or Mr. Darcy’s beauty made them feel better that everything in the world is all right … (Even if the world here is fictional)
5. Leo (July 23rd to August 21st)
Leos love to be the center of attraction and feed on their royal egos. What better way to escape reality and be the center of attention than to take a Mikey in an open auditorium and show off his speaking or musical skills. You are on conspicuous escape.
6. Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)
The oh-so-practical Virgos don’t even know the meaning of escapism. I mean, what’s an escape when there are so many things to deal with! You dive headlong into the heart of things. Her motto of escapism is: “You can run away, you can hide, but you cannot escape!
7. Libra (September 23 to October 21)
The beautiful and charming libras aim to lead life in style, comfort and abundance. And so, their form of escapism is very stylish too! They would be on vacation for a week so everyone would know they are on vacation. What could be better than spending a vacation in an exotic location to escape reality!
8. Scorpio (October 23rd to November 21st)
The very lovely and passionate Scorpios love and I really mean the love! They would rather get lost in the tangle of skin and sheets than in the harsh reality and failures. Her escapism mojo is, “Let’s have a little more love, please.”
9. Sagittarius (November 22nd to December 21st)
The adventurous Saggis will take a run at the beach, go on a hike or plan a spontaneous vacation on an unknown island. Adventure is in their blood. They escape reality by putting on their adventurous shoes.
10. Capricorn (December 22nd to January 19th)
Practical and responsible caps like to meditate or do therapeutic exercises to calm their minds from the difficulties of reality. You can only function well when you are at peace with yourself. You know that very well. This also applies to meditation. Then they think about what they can do for their next plan of action. The way the ibexes escape is to turn on their meditative lights.
11. Aquarius (January 20th to February 18th)
The free-thinking and quirky aquarists I piss you off with don’t have all kinds of escape mechanisms, from smoking weed to gardening to simple thoughts of another happy situation.
12. Pisces (February 19th to March 20th)
The talented Pisces seek refuge from reality in their creativity. This can be writing, painting, music, etc.
Falling All Zodiac Signs, now that you know your escape mechanisms, take a deep breath and take a break from the troubles for a while, but yes, don’t get lost while on your escape. Find your way back to reality!
