Every month I’m sharing Self Care Horoscopes! These are a fun reminder to keep practicing self care all of the time – every day in a million different little ways! I hope this is fun, inspirational, and that you enjoy! I used the wonderful Oracle of the Mermaids deck to help me out this month.
How accurate is yours?
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
Reflect on where you are right now in life. Don’t worry over anything but look at your life from an objective place and ask yourself what’s missing. Take a little time to contemplate where you are going right now and how you can have the best life for you.
Self Care Activity: Gather the threads, the loose ends that are going on in your life and work on finishing them. Work on those unfinished projects that your heart is yearning to complete. Think about going back to school, or finishing that ecourse you started and never completed, or getting back into the garden, or whatever thing that you let go of because you were too busy to finish.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
It’s time for some root chakra work Gemini! The root chakra represents that feeling of being at home within yourself and safe and settled in your life. It is so essential to your well-being to feel grounded and safe where you are in your relationships, in your home, in your life, and in your body.
Self Care Activity: Bring things into your life that give you that deep sense of comfort. Make your home more comfortable and inviting. Make a commitment to be more comfortable with yourself or your body. Ask yourself what makes you uncomfortable about your life and then lean into those feelings and fix them.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
It is time to see the truth of who you are, the real truth, the deep down in your beautiful soul truth. You are not ugly or lacking or not enough, you are a beautiful soul with so much to offer and so much to give. Don’t let your inner critic bring you down any longer. It’s time to have a talk with those negative voices in your head.
Self Care Activity: Make a list of your accomplishments, the things about yourself that you are really proud of. See yourself in the way that the people around you see you. Recognize all of those wonderful qualities about yourself that everyone loves. Take a moment to really appreciate how great you are.
LEO (July 23-August 22)
You, Leo, deserve a time out! Time out isn’t what it used to be when you were sent to your room for punishment. This is a reward. You need some ‘you time’ to get your head on straight and find your sparkle again. Get off the internet, put away your shiny electronics, and go give yourself a nourishing time out and away from the stresses of life!
Self Care Activity: Spend some time alone without any human interaction. Strip away that feeling of having to be ‘on’ for someone else and just allow yourself to be for you. Do something that makes you happy and allows you to have a little bit of time way from society.
VIRGO (August 23-September 22)
It’s time to get a little creative with your self-expression. Do you want to dye your hair, wear something totally off-the-wall and funky, or go out all dolled up just because? This month focus on your appearance but in a way that makes you happy. Don’t sacrifice your self expression to please someone else or to make society happy. If you want gorgeous silver locks, forgo the dye, dress how you feel, not ‘your age’. Do what makes you feel confident and sexy and pretty.
Self Care Activity: If you could wear anything what would it be? Do you have your own sense of style? Work on expressing yourself in a way that is uniquely you. Put on that jewelry that catches your eye, style your hair in a way you’ve been wanting to try, rock that red lipstick. Don’t hide who you are. Embrace it.
LIBRA (September 23-October 22)
Hey soulsister! Your theme for this month is sisterhood. We all need gal pals to make us feel a little less alone in this great big world. There is nothing more delightful than sitting back and having a laugh with the people who just get you. That’s your soul-medicine for this month. Soul-to-soul connection with good people.
Self Care Activity: Seek out nourishing friendships, especially with other women. Reach out to someone that you admire and connect with them, join a woman’s group, call up a friend that you haven’t seen in awhile. Embrace sisterhood.
SCORPIO (October 23-November 21)
This month is all about creation! Make something with your hands, your words, your talents, your wisdom. It’s time to get your butt out there and start creating the things that have been demanding your time. Stop pushing them away, stop telling yourself that you don’t have time or talent. You’re going to be riding waves of powerful energy right now.
Self Care Activity: There’s tons of potential dwelling inside of you right now. Use it! Ask yourself the question: What do you want to create or make?
Don’t allow your mind to restrict what you can do. Create a magical spot in your home. Create a life that you love to pieces. Start working on a new project or business idea that makes you feel good and spends your energy in a productive way.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21)
It’s time to fall in love. You know that feeling you get when you fall in love with something? If it’s a person, they’re all you can think about, or a song where the lyrics are constantly running through your head, or a new project that you just can’t wait to work on? Shake up your life so that there’s room for brand new things, people, or concepts for you to fall in love with.
Self Care Activity: Open yourself up to falling in love with life. Embrace the scary feels, the sweetness, the beauty, the excitement, that wonderful feeling of newness and wonder. Fall in love with people, music, words, activities, nature, or the Divine, or even yourself. Open your heart up to feeling all of the good stuff.
CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19)
Boundaries, it’s time to enforce them. Personal space needs to be a priority in your life right now and you need to make sure that other people are respecting your space and your boundaries. Your privacy is important and you need to let other people know that. When you respect your boundaries, other people will learn to as well.
Self Care Activity: It is time to create space in your life that is off-limits to other people and just for you. Pick a morning/evening/afternoon to have to yourself and don’t let anyone else intrude. Redraw your boundaries and make sure that some things are off-limits to other people.
AQUARIUS (January 20-February 18)
If you’ve just come to the end of a journey or a project this is your reminder to take a moment to rest. It’s tempting to keep going and going and going but part of self care is knowing when it’s time to push yourself and knowing when it’s time to rest. Maybe you just got out of a relationship, or finished a new project, or just had a really busy day running errands. Give yourself a break!
Self Care Activity: Take a break that allows you to rest before jumping into your next project. That space in between is a beautiful place of possibility. Let yourself rest so that you can give your next big thing your all.
PISCES (February 19-March 20)
You are a G-O-D-D-E-S-S and you should get into the habit of believing that. You are this beautiful collision of soul, life, and stardust. There’s a pretty amazing process involved in your creation. Stop thinking those negative things that you think about yourself and start embracing the concept of your inherit magic.
Self Care Activity: Pay attention to your deep, delicious nature, the power of your soul, and the sacredness of your life. Are you treating yourself the right way? Are you talking to yourself in a kind and loving manner? Make an extra effort to treat yourself right this month!
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
There are times when you need to go with the flow and just let the energy of life guide you to the perfect spot. There are also times in life when you need to gather your strength and swim for all you are worth to get where you want to go, no matter what obstacles are in your way. You have the power to forge your own way and to get the things in life that you want.
Self Care Activity: It’s time to go for what you really want in life without the fear that you don’t have the chutzpah. If you’re scared to make your big dreams happen start pushing through those feelings by harnessing those big bad brave powers that are dwelling inside of you.
