Figuring out what to do for yourself can be difficult, but self-care is necessary for our busy lives. As the seasons’ change, so should your self-care routine.
Your zodiac sign reflects you and what your needs might be. Find your zodiac sign below for our recommendations on how to revitalize your self-care routine.
What is a Zodiac Sign?
In astrology, zodiac signs are a way of predicting aspects of someone’s personality. There are 12 zodiac signs in total that correlate to when you were born. For example a person born in January may fall under the Capricorn (January 1st to 20th) or Aquarius (Jan 21nd to Feb 18th).

As a bold and ambitious person, Aries can forget the value that they hold as an individual. Look in the mirror and give yourself some affirmations, or listen to some online.
Remind yourself that you are loved and valued, and all your hard work is helping you become a stronger individual.
Everyone needs a break, including all of the hardworking and dedicated Taurus. As a driven sign, Taurus can forget to treat themselves in one of the best ways possible, with some of their fav treats.
Indulge in some of your guilty pleasure foods/sweets and relax any diet rules you have for yourself.
As a Gemini, you can get caught up in the world around you; whether it’s gossip or your work life, find your escape! Try a TV/movie binge. Grab some cozy blankets, make yourself a wellness tea, add your fav snack and enjoy an old love or a new addiction.
Get lost in the fictional world and try to distract your brain from all the drama that reality can bring.
As an intuitive sign, Cancers can hold a lot of stress in their body and mind after a long week. So soak in a hot bath! Feel free to add bath salts, bath bombs or even crystals to help ease all the tension and negative energy that latches onto your body and mind.
If you want to try out a more natural bath bomb, add herbal tea to your hot bath and let it steep for 5-10 minutes before hopping in.
We suggest GROSCHE’s Hibiscus Tea or Peppermint Organic Tea.
Leos are creative problem solvers with drive who love challenges. To unwind and practice self-care, try out a DIY project. It could be as simple as repurposing old jars or even trying something like candle or soap making.
Let your creative juices flow and make something for yourself without letting the negativity of others impact your creativity.
Being practical and productive is your very nature as a Virgo. When it comes to self-care, don’t feel trapped in a box of productivity. Its important to remember that practicing self-care is not only productive but it keeps other habits sustainable as well!
Listen to your fav music, belt your heart out and dance. Get into that Virgo’s groove!
Inner peace comes easily to a Libra as a people-pleasing sign. In your attempt to help others, don’t forget what you’re grateful for and what brings you joy. Start a gratitude journal, and try to journal for 5 minutes to remind yourself of those little blessings in life.
For us, we are grateful for our Safe Water Project and everybody who supports it! We’ve set a 2022 goal of funding 300 MILLION days of safe water funded, check the counter at the top of the screen to see how close we are.
Like Cancers, Scorpios can be very sensitive to the state of those around them and the energy of others. To cleanse your mind of the negative energy, use essential oils in a diffuser or safely on your temples, chest, stomach, wrists, feet, palms and back.
PRO-TIP: Pair your essential oils with a wellness tea, we suggest our Cloud 9 or Calm Serenitea.
*Only use essential oils on your body if they are labelled safe for application onto the skin! Diffuse essential oils on the skin by applying olive oil first, then the essential oil on top.
Light exercise is a helpful self-care method for a Sagittarius. As a compassionate sign, they tend to take on the issues of others, and it weighs them down throughout the week. A little bit of physical activity can open up all the stress you carry in your body. Whether this is a light jog or a relaxing walk, anything that gets you up and moving can benefit a Sagittarius.

Dedication and perseverance are common traits in a Capricorn. They thrive on busy schedules and productivity (like Virgos) and are always looking to do the work. All Capricorn needs for their self-care is sleep! Thriving on productivity is a great way to help boost your mental state and general health, but you can’t forget to set aside time to recharge!
Squeeze in a good nap or start your night routine off right by preparing a lavender tea, and try turning off screens 30 minutes to an hour before bedtime.
Aquarius tends to focus on the bigger picture and can get lost in this process. Taking care of your mental health is super important and self-care is the perfect way to do that.
Recenter yourself with some yoga and meditation, and remind yourself to enjoy the little things and that we cannot always control the world around us.
As a perceptive sign, Pisces benefit from alone time, specifically when they can focus on their surroundings. Try a nature walk in a forest or by a river/stream. We recommend not to listen to any music or podcasts and take in the natural beauty and sounds of the environment around you. Use that perceptive mind and try to focus on individual sounds and recognize each being that made said sound.
