The 2021 Wellness Trend for You, Based on Your Zodiac Sign
It can be hard to keep track of what's trending and ending, especially when a new year starts. It's even more challenging to discern which trends are right for you. You can try every trend, but you would end up riding a Peloton bike while taking ginger shots, meditating and tracking your heart rate. It would be a lot.
It's better to narrow down the trends that would specifically work for your life and better your health. Well, we did the hard work for you. We found the hottest wellness trends in 2021 and matched them to each zodiac sign. Take a look and find out what trend is going to fit you perfectly this year.
Aries (March 21-April 19): Virtual Fitness
Aries are adventurous, ambitious, energetic and enjoy a challenge. The perfect way to burn that pent-up energy is with virtual workouts. Whether you're joining a virtual yoga flow or HIIT workout, virtual workouts are going to be Aries's best friend for the next couple of months until everything safely reopens. Aries, we know you're impatient but stay strong and challenge yourself with at-home workouts.
Taurus (April 20-May 20): Sleep and Rest
Taurus knows the importance of rest. If you're a Taurus, you're going to love the 2021 trend of prioritizing sleep and rest. The wellness industry is now promoting overall health, which means rejecting the idea that you need to be productive every second of the day. A healthy lifestyle includes proper rest and sleep so that you can recharge and reset. There has been a boom in sleep accessories like sleep tracking apps, eye masks, weighted blankets, blackout curtains and therapy lamps. Taurus is a determined and hardworking sign, but now it's time to embrace their relaxed side as well.
Gemini (May 21-June 20): Mental Health as a Priority
It's become more acceptable to talk about your mental health in recent years, but the topic of mental health became an everyday discussion when the pandemic hit. We collectively experienced stress, panic, despair, depression and isolation. It brought an awareness that, even if you don't struggle with mental health problems or mental illness, we all need to prioritize mental health. While every zodiac sign will benefit from this, Geminis need a reminder to take care of their mental health. Geminis are naturally nervous and deal with racing minds. Geminis are very analytical with their thoughts and like to compartmentalize, but it's important to feel your emotions and find tools to help your anxiety.
Cancer (June 21-July 22): Back to Nature
We've known for a while that nature is good for our mental and physical health. Nature reduces stress, helps relieve depression, lowers blood pressure and may speed up your recovery from surgery or illness. People are craving nature more than ever as we've been isolated in our homes. People are finding ways to enjoy nature now safely and there will be a newfound love of nature when the pandemic ends, especially for Cancer. Cancer finds peace and inspiration in nature. They are highly intuitive and can be sensitive, so nature's serenity is often an escape for them.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): At-Home Self-Care
Extroverted Leo has struggled during this lockdown. They are generous, friendly, and social, and they thrive in the spotlight. Stuck at home, Leos have are just waiting until they can finally enter the world and return to the stage.

From teletherapy sessions to at-home spa treatments, meditation apps and home LED kits, Leo has many options to practice self-care to get them through the next few months of waiting.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22): Micro Tracking
Virgo is meticulous and systematic with their approach to everything- including fitness and health. One of the hottest trends that Virgos will love is micro-tracking. Micro-tracking goes beyond regular fitness trackers. Fitness watches and trackers focus on specific parts of your health like skin temperature, sleep quality, respiratory rate and glucose levels. Some people enjoy the instant feedback that allows them to tweak everyday habits to better their health. While this may be overwhelming for some people, it's perfect for analytic and organized Virgos.
Libra (Sep. 23-Oct. 22): Sustainable Beauty
Every industry has been incorporating more sustainable practices, but the beauty and skincare industry will excel in this area in 2021. This is perfect for Libras who love beauty and also profoundly care about keeping balance in the world. They love the idea that they can take care of their skin and the environment simultaneously. You will see more companies focusing on biotech beauty. Lab-made ingredients are better for the environment as they require less energy and water to produce than natural ingredients. You'll also see more plastic-free products, environmentally-friendly production, sustainable packaging, and carbon-free shipping. Libra will be spearheading this trend with a Sephora gift card in hand.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Adaptogens
Time's definition of adaptogens is "non-toxic plants that are marketed as helping the body resist stressors of all kinds, whether physical, chemical or biological." While adaptogens are centuries old, they've boomed in the Western wellness world recently. Adaptogens can be used as powders, in drinks or taken as supplements. Based on the adaptogen, it can improve attention, endurance, fatigue and stress levels. Adaptogens are the perfect supplement for passionate and intense Scorpio. Scorpios are not afraid to try new things, so they'll be the first to try adaptogens. Scorpios are strong and intense, so they will love this natural way to boost their energy and help them deal with stress.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Slow Travel
This is a trend that will boom after the pandemic is over and travel is safe. Slow travel is a new way of traveling that emphasizes taking your time, connecting to the different places you visit., staying present and fully appreciating different cultures. It also encourages sustainable travel practices that don't harm the environment. This practice is perfect for Sagittarius, who's always on a journey to learn and experience more. They will thrive in new places and truly grow from the experience. Although restless Sagittarius might not like the word "slow," it's not about the duration of time you spend in the area, but the quality of the experience and how you interact with the environment and people that live there.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Strengthening the Immune System
This pandemic has made everyone aware of the importance of healthy immune systems, but it's practical and reliable Capricorn that is most concerned.

The industry is also taking steps to become more inclusive of all body sizes, genders, ethnicities, races and abilities. Although there is still a lot of work to do to make the industry truly inclusive, innovative Aquarius is the perfect person to change the industry to make it open to everyone.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): Digital Detox
Sensitive Pisces is easily influenced by negative energy. While social media and technology can be a fantastic way to better our lives and connect to the world, it can also be damaging. Spending too much time exposed to negative news and comparing ourselves to social media people can be harmful, especially to empathetic Pisces people. This is a good time for Pisces to practice boundaries with social media. Digital detox means taking a few hours, a day, a weekend or a week off social media. Pisces, you're so creative! Fill the extra time with your artistic and imaginative pursuits.
