The Best Self-Care Routine, Based on Your Zodiac Sign

Having a self-care routine is vital to maintaining a positive state of mind and well being. It is truly essential to take time out and focus on yourself (especially if Mercury is retrograde!). But remember: Taking care of yourself doesn’t have to be complicated; it just has to be personal. Every sign benefits from different treatments, rituals, and routines. Your personal self-care activity should be one that you’re naturally drawn to or will help create balance in your life. Don’t fret, though, we’ve done the hard work for you. Simply scroll through this list to find the perfect self-care routine your sign needs.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

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, it’ll also help you release stress from work or other areas of your life.

Taurus (April 20  May 20)

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

Cancer (June 21  July 22)

Emotional and intuitive, Cancer loves easily and connects deeply to spiritual practices. Try metta meditation, which is all about giving love out to the world. Even just ten minutes of meditation each morning can start the day off right for you. If you want to get connected to your spiritual side, and your ruling planet (the moon), get a natal moon report to find out how the moon affects your moods.

Leo (July 23  August 22)

The consummate fire sign, Leo is a hardworking leader, but even the loudest lion has a finite amount of energy. Your self-care routine can be as simple as taking a short nap. Because the upper back and spine rule Leo, it’s best to keep your body supported on a comfortable mattress—skip the sofa even for short siestas.

Virgo (August 23  September 22)

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.

Libra (September 23  October 22)

A hot Vinyasa Flow class is perfect for Libra. As a sign that not only likes to sweat but also feels inclined towards routine, this type of yoga will bring peace and balance.

Scorpio (October 23  November 21)

Scorpio can have trouble expressing their emotions or perhaps they are simply more guarded than other signs. Invest in talk therapy for the ultimate in self-care. Taking an hour each week to meet with someone you trust can be an emotional game changer.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Because Sagittarius’ tend to be big dreamers, you’ll get find loads of inspiration from reading memoirs and non-fiction books and memoirs, such as Eva Hagberg Fisher’s How to Be Loved: A Memoir of Lifesaving Friendship.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Extremely ambitious, Capricorn does what it takes to get the job done. However, you can overwork yourself. Take some much needed “me time” by going for a hike. It will give you both the break you need and the sense of accomplishment you crave.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Known as the “water bearer,” it’s no surprise that Aquarius can rejuvenate from a luxurious facial treatment or nice bath. (Using Herbivore Botanical’s exfoliating serum is a great start!)
