The Perfect Self-Care Activity for You, Based on Your Zodiac Sign
We're no strangers to self-care, and more than ever, we're relying on our fave mind-calming activities to pass the time and keep us sane.
Self-care is such a broad term that includes everything from exercise and skincare, to mind activities and art.
Ahead, we've hand-picked the perfect self-care activity for you, based on your zodiac sign. Already doing the self care activity below? Check out the activity for your moon sign, too, which rules your emotions and inner mood!
Aries (March 21-April 19): A Social Distance Jog
Aries are known for going a mile a minute, so this quarantine might be hitting you extra hard. You're passionate and committed to whatever you do, but you also need to release energy to keep yourself sane. If your situation permits, a long walk or jog—while still following all of the mandated rules—will do your mind and body a whole lot of good.
Taurus (April 20-May 20): Hot Bath With Luxe Bubbles
Taurus babes work hard, so they deserve to luxuriate—and there's no better way to have a little you time than with a nice long soak. Since you fancy the finer things in life, grab your most extra accoutrement, like a rosebud-filled bath balm or some luxe bath crystals to make it extra glamourous.
Gemini (May 21-June 21): Weekly Zoom Hangouts
Geminis love being around people, as they're the social butterflies of the zodiac sign. Gemini is definitely missing its friends because TBH, hanging out with them is a form of self-care. Orchestrate a weekly Zoom hang with all your besties so you have something to look forward to each week.
Cancer (June 21-July 22): Journaling
Sensitive Cancers are emotional, caring and loving. While you do miss being out and about, you're also a homebody, who's welcoming the extra time at home with your loved ones. To keep all of your feelings at bay, pick up journaling to help you process all your thoughts.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22): Napping
It's not easy being the life of the party 24/7, but if anyone was meant for the spotlight, it's you, Leo! That said, quarantine has put a major—and possibly, for you, a much-needed—pause on your social calendar. Even Leos need some shut-eye every so often, and this is the perfect time to snag those much-needed Z's.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Painting
Analytical Virgos love numbers, spreadsheets and keeping things orderly. All that structure is great and all, but try something new to help you relax, like painting! You can make it as precise or loose as you want, and you might even be surprised just how much joy you get from it.
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Yoga
Libra babes love balance and order, and can anything get you as zen as yoga? Even though you don't like to take sides, you're constantly absorbing people's energy, which is why yoga is perfect for you to decompress and release.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): An Elaborate Skincare Routine
Mysterious and moody, you could use a heavy dose of R&R, and what better way to do that then with a super elaborate skincare routine? We're talking double-cleanse, masking, toning, serum-ing, the whole nine yards!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Meditation
Oh Sagittarius gals, nothing can crush your wanderlust spirit quite like this quarantine. But there's one way to take your mind off of your next exotic destination: meditation. This is a wonderful way to put your mind at ease and calm your wandering thoughts.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Organize Your Life
There are few signs that find innate joy in cleaning, but you fit the bill. You love things in order and can't even imagine the thought of being at home with nothing to do, which is why for you, creating your own to-do lists around your room is your version of a dream come true. Room already spotless? Try organizing and cleaning out photos in your phone or rummaging through your bathroom cabinet.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19): A Funky At-Home Mani
Aquarius babes are out-of-the-box thinkers who love a challenge—and is there any bigger challenge than painting your own nails? Luckily, you're ready to rise to the occasion, and who knows? You may find out you're wickedly good at funky, at-home manicures.
Pisces (Feb. 20-March 20): Tie-Dyeing Old Clothes
You're emotional, romantic and love to express your artistic side. A less conventional self-care activity you'll totally dig? Tie-dyeing your old clothes! Not only does this let you get super creative, it also up-cycles items in your current closet.
Now, onto the bigger question—do you actually have the drive to get these things done? Find out by reading THIS list of the five most productive signs during quarantine.
