Passionate Aries thrives on competition so you naturally excel in a group fitness class like spin—especially with a leaderboard like FlyWheel or Peloton, Orange Theory or even CrossFit. Sweating it out and releasing endorphins won’t just help you physically, but will also help you release stress from work or other areas of your life.


We know you work hard, but also know you enjoy the fruits of your labors and like being aware and in touch with your body. A Reiki treatment or a massage is exactly what you need to relax your stubborn muscles and clear your mind.

Virgo loves home organization and decor. So a fun DIY project, such as refinishing an antique chair and then painting it will feel naturally relaxing to you. The mindfulness of crafting will be as rewarding as the end product itself.
