Your Perfect Self-Care Routine, Based On Your Star Sign

July 22, 2020

self care routine

Whether you're a star sign fanatic or a bit of a sceptic, you've got to admit that astrology is a lot of fun. Who doesn't take a cheeky peek at their horoscope and exclaim "OMG, spooky! I AM making a major life change at the moment!" — even if that life change is just reorganising your makeup collection. 

In times of uncertainty — like we find ourselves in at the moment —the stars can provide some comforting guidance. They can help us relinquish control to whatever fate has planned for our future. And if life just feels like a bit of a hot mess at the moment? Well, we can just blame Mercury in Retrograde, right!?

When the world feels like it's gone crazy, taking care of ourselves becomes more important than ever. Each and every one of us should be making time to refill our own cup, no matter how busy we are (in fact, especially the busy ones!) This can look completely different for everyone — whether it's a luxurious bubble bath, a walk with a great podcast or a session with your punching bag!

But if months in isolation has left you feeling bored with your current self-care routine, where better to look for inspiration for a new one than the zodiac? Whether you're a passionate Pisces, gregarious Gemini or a loyal Leo, read on to learn your best self-care activity based on your star sign.

Your perfect self-care routine, based on your star sign

Capricorn: December 22 - January 19

self care routine

Your ideal self-care activity: Hiking

Caps are often compared to mountain goats (lol) due to their driven and determined nature. They won't be stopped until they reach their goals! So, what better way for this star sign to unwind than getting into the great outdoors and scaling the nearest mountain? (or hill — whatever you have available!) Don't forget the delicious snacks to keep you going!

Aquarius: January 20 - February 18

Art therapy a form of self care feels good

Your ideal self-care activity: Get arty

Aquarians are known for being creative, eccentric and....well, a little bit airy-fairy! While it might seem like they have their head in the clouds sometimes, they're normally just daydreaming about their next creative project.

So, there's no better self-care activity for the Aquarius woman than an artistic outlet where they can really lose themselves in a state of flow. Try painting, drawing or even making some Insta-worthy collages or Pinterest boards. Anything that gets those creative juices flowing!

Pisces: February 19 - March 20

self care activity for star sign

 Your ideal self-care activity: Have a bath

Ahh, the sweet and sensitive Pisces! You'd be hard-pressed to find someone with a bigger heart than this zodiac. But, with this comes a tendency to put everyone else's needs before their own. So, for this water sign, a soak in the tub is the ideal self-care activity.

Put up your metaphorical (or literal!) 'DO NOT DISTURB' sign, play some relaxing tunes and let your worries literally melt away in the warm water. You can even give your bod a good scrub while you're at it, for extra relaxed vibes.

Aries: March 21 - April 19

self-care routine

Your ideal self-care activity: Light a candle

As a fire sign, Aries have a rep for having a touch of pyromaniac in them. And we love them for it! After all, that burning flame really connects with their passionate, motivated and determined nature.

Aries babes can channel that energy by lighting a beautiful candle (or two!) and doing whatever helps them chill out — whether it's reading a book or binge-watching Netflix. The sight of the flickering candlelight and dreamy scent will help lull you into an almost meditative state.

Taurus: April 20 - May 20

Your ideal self-care activity: Get out in nature

Grounded, stable and reliable, the mighty Taurus is the epitome of an earth sign. So, they need a self-care routine to match! This zodiac tends to get energised by spending time outdoors — whether that's a walk on the beach, gardening or just sitting in a nearby park.

It doesn't matter if you listen to music or a podcast or just get lost in your own thoughts; or go solo or with company. The main thing is that you kick off your shoes and access the grounding benefits of connecting with nature.

Gemini: May 21 - June 20


Your ideal self-care activity: Practice mindfulness

Symbolised by twins, Geminis are known for their dual nature. On the outside, this can look like having chaotic energy, or being a bit of hot mess in the best possible way. But really, they just have a lot going on in those beautiful brains of theirs.

Practising mindfulness can help Gemini gals quieten that constant  internal monologue and find clarity and calm.  This doesn't necessarily have to mean meditation— it can be anything that allows you to stay in the present moment, like journalling or focusing on the sensations you experience during your skincare routine. 

Cancer: June 21 - July 22

self care routine

Your ideal self-care activity: Get cosy

Cancers are known as the unofficial queens of cosy. Just like their crab mascot, they tend to be major homebodies who love to nest.  So, if you're a Cancer, why not spend some time transforming your space into a Hygge sanctuary?

You can even start with just turning one nook in your home into a cosy corner. That way, you'll always have the perfect place to retreat whenever the world just feels like it's getting a bit too much.

Leo: July 23 - August 22

Your ideal self-care activity: Pamper yourself

As a fire sign, it's only totally natural that Leos want to look fire at all times, too. These fearless leaders feel their best when they look their best!  So, for Leo lasses, there's no better way to spend a self-care Sunday than getting their pamper on.

We're talking a full-body glow-up, the whole shebang. Think, a full-body scrub, and face mask, followed by slathering yourself with nourishing lotion from head to toe. That way, you'll prowl on into Monday (you are a lioness, after all!) feeling ready to rule the world.

Virgo: August 23 - September 22

Marie Kondo your wardrobe

Your ideal self-care activity: Spring clean

If you're a Virgo, 'organised' is probably your middle name. This earth sign is known for being practical, systematic and let's face it... a bit of a perfectionist. So, it's hardly surprising that they find cleaning and organising even more relaxing than a two-hour massage.

So, if you're feeling a bit stressed or wound-up, why not give your home, pantry or wardrobe a spring-clean? To make it a little more fun, make sure to pump some tunes while you do it. It's sure to give you a new lease on life! And when you're done, can you please come over and do our homes, too!?   

Libra: September 23 - October 22

Self care yoga

Your ideal self-care activity: Do yoga

Represented by the scales, lovely Librans are all about balance. So, if you've been working a little too hard lately, there's no better way to tip the scales back in the right direction than with some yoga.

This doesn't haven't to mean completely abandoning your current workout routine to become a full-on yogi. Whether it's doing some light stretching in the morning, using an online yoga platform or heading to a class with a friend, there's endless ways to get your 'Om' on. Your mind and body will thank you for it!

Scorpio: October 23 - November 21

self care activity

Your ideal self-care activity: Go for a dip

A water sign known for their passion and intensity, Scorpios are often happiest by a body of water. So, there's no better way for them to wash the negative vibes off and hit 'refresh' than going for a swim.

Whether you hit your nearest beach or lake or a swimming pool at your local recreational centre or gym, you're bound to feel like a million bucks afterwards — even if it's a little cold getting in at first. Just make sure you've got a warm hoodie and a coffee afterwards! 

Sagittarius: November 22 - December 21

self care routine

Your ideal self-care activity: Read a book 

Ever the intellectual, Saggies like to be mentally stimulated at all times. They tend to have a tough time sitting still and just doing 'nothing.' So, why force it? Diving into a great book is the perfect way for these thrill-seekers to escape without getting too bored.

Really not the reading type? Why not tune into some Audiobooks instead! Falling somewhere in between a podcast and an audio version of a TV show, they're a super convenient way to consume content.

We all know how important self-care is for helping us show up as the best version of ourselves and staying on track with our goals.  But when we're juggling about 10 bazillion different responsibilities, it's easy for it to slip down the list of priorities. By finding a self-care routine that suits you, your lifestyle (and your star sign!), you'll be able to more seamlessly fit into your life so it doesn't feel like a chore.
