I really wanted to share something fun every month with all of you so I came up with monthly Self Care Horoscopes, whoop whoop! This is a 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 Spirit of the Wheel oracle cards to help me out.
What’s your sign?
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
Aries love, it is time to retreat, rest, sleep, quiet… ahhh, doesn’t that sound nice? You’ve been feeling some chaos in your life and you need to focus on giving yourself time to rest – mind, body, and soul. Go within, make friends with silence and let yourself heal and re-energize. Take a few minutes each day to enjoy the silence and to really reconnect with the one-ness of the world and the universe around you.
Self Care Activity: Take a break that doesn’t involve sound or any sort of busy-ness. Take a nap, meditate, sit in quiet with your eyes closed. Let yourself just be.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
Boundaries, boundaries, boundaries is your word for the month. Focus on personal space needs to be a priority in your life right now but not in the way you may think. If your personal space has been violated you might find yourself pulling back from other people and widening your area of space with a big sign saying “Keep Away”. Boundaries need to be balanced, keeping the right people out but also letting the right people in. You need to work on receiving, on allowing people into your life and cultivating trust in them and in your own judgement without letting your past experiences color what is happening in the now.
Self Care Activity: Work on releasing your doubts and anxieties as far as other people are concerned. Let people into your life, ask for help or support, hang out and have fun with someone else without worrying about imposing on them!
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
You know those dreams that you have Gemini? Now is the time to go for them. It’s time to start building those dreams and building up your courage to make them happen. Once you jump over that first hurdle of feeling like you don’t deserve it or you don’t have the skills, everything is going to fall into place, so take a deep big breath and doooo it! Don’t be afraid to bring other people along for the ride – foster that support system, ask for help when you need it, get advice and be flexible!
Self Care Activity: Take a look at your dreams and goals. Ask yourself what you really want to work on and then take a look at the people who will help you get there! Join an accountability group or ask for cheerleaders on social media. Ask advice from someone that has been where you are.
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
It is time for you to get creative! Paint, draw, dance, sing loudly and tap into the creative energy that is all around you. Let all of your fears of not being good enough or talented enough fade away.
You can be very emotional and that can be overwhelming for you so take a deep breath and then be gentle with yourself and focus that energy into creating something good instead of letting it tear you down. When you are sharing your emotions with other people remember to be gentle with your words instead of letting your emotions run rampant out of your mouth.
Self Care Activity: Work on your self care as far as what makes you feel better when you are overwhelmed by sadness or anger or any of those other emotions that can cause you issues.
LEO (July 23-August 22)
It is time to be the mother hen right now, Leo. You need to step forward and share your strengths and talents with someone else. Be the Encourager, the Cheerleader, the Mentor. Oftentimes doing something good for someone else can have an amazing effect on your own life. Give your compassion and patience to someone in your life that needs it, yourself included!
Self Care Activity: First off, recognize how strong you are and that you have been through a lot of things that have only made you wiser and stronger. Don’t be afraid to step up and let others rely on you (you won’t fail them) and don’t be afraid to tap into that independence and rely on yourself.
VIRGO (August 23-September 22)
There’s a new opportunity coming your way that is going to scare the crap out of you. Don’t be afraid though because you got this. In the past you’ve allowed your fear to control a lot of the choices you’ve made but lately you’ve begun to see your self-worth and that maybe fear shouldn’t have such a big place in your life. What you want matters. You’ve got a great new beginning coming your way that will test out those self-worth muscles and encourage you to act from that space.
Self Care Activity: When new and exciting (and uber scary) opportunities come your way don’t allow your fear response to get in the way of what you really want. Get real with what you want right now and go for it.
LIBRA (September 23-October 22)
How do you feel about your spirituality right now? Where are you at with your life values? Are you feeling the urge to shake things up and examine where you are right now with your beliefs? Enrich your life by going on an exploration of your own spirit. Think ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ on a much smaller scale of course. Explore how your feel about your life and your relationships and how your feelings have changed over the years.
Self Care Activity: Spend time getting spiritual in whatever way makes you feel fulfilled. This could be praying, spending time in nature, going to church, meditating, or just doing something that makes your spirit feel all bright and shiny.
SCORPIO (October 23-November 21)
Go within to seek the answers that you need. You do not need to have validation from others when it comes to what’s going on in your life, you really don’t! You might feel the need to rely on other people to keep you on track and affirm your decisions but sometimes that can be a hindrance. This can be asking for advice when you’ve already made a decision and then second guessing yourself or not listening to intuition because of what someone else has to say. Stop feeling so conflicted. Let your mind, heart, and soul work in sync.
Self Care Activity: When it comes to decision making let your voice matter. Listen to what your heart and soul have to say before immediately asking someone to solve the problem for you.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21)
Like a snake shedding its skin it’s time to let go of the things that are no longer nourishing you. Are there any roles that you have lived in for so long that you find yourself clinging to them even though it’s long time to let them go? Maybe you’re used to being a do-it-all but now you have support in your life, or you’ve always felt unlovable but there’s someone trying to break through those walls or you’ve always been a giver but you find yourself being taken advantage of too much. It’s time to re-discover your identity, who you really are and to let go of the things you aren’t anymore or don’t want to be any longer.
Self Care Activity: Embrace who you really are, be your authentic self especially in regards to the people around you. Set boundaries and don’t let others force you into a role that no longer fits for you.
CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19)
Do you put on a tough facade for the people around you? You pretend that nothing gets to you and this gives you the air of not caring when you really do. It’s okay to show your vulnerabilities and to open up your heart and allow yourself to be tender. There is an enormous desire to avoid pain, to avoid anything that leads to emotional distress and yet vulnerability is beautiful and allows you to be tender and open which allows others to give you what you need.
Self Care Activity: Allow yourself to be vulnerable and open with your feelings and see where that takes you. Have a heartfelt conversation with yourself relating to where you can add more openness to your life and do it.
AQUARIUS (January 20-February 18)
There’s something beautiful about being of service. Not in a demeaning or underling way, but in a way of serving some greater purpose. Of assisting a force that works through you to some purpose. Take yourself for example, are your actions being of service to your greatest good? Make the choices and decisions that serve where you want to go in your life. Don’t just go through life willy-nilly but with a purpose that nourishes your being and what you were meant to do or be.
Self Care Activity: Think about where you’d like to see yourself by the end of the month. What things do you want to accomplish? What things are you going to do to honor who you really are? Do them.
PISCES (February 19-March 20)
It’s time to nourish your brain this month. You know that old saying “Learn something new everyday?” put that into practice! Wisdom and learning are all around you and there are so many fun things to learn about! It also wouldn’t be a bad idea to share the things you know, your own brand of wisdom, with the people around you. You never know how deeply your words can change the life of someone else.
Self Care Activity: Take that art or yoga class that you’ve been eyeing. Read a new book about something that you find interesting. Try something that you haven’t before and enjoy the novelty of it. There’s so many cool things out there that you haven’t tried!
