Whether you’re a feisty fire sign or an airy daydreamer, there’s a de-stressing method that fits your unique astrological profile just right. Think of this as your toolkit to regaining that feeling of Zen, it doesn’t matter how hectic things get.
Aries: Work out
Aries energy can burn up bright and hot. When she gets overloaded, the fire can rage uncontrollable. Her best plan of action to chill out? Heat up. Raise that body temperature to match the temperature of her spirit though a significant sweat sesh. Working things out physically keeps Aries well-tuned, and allows her to then modulate her energy effectively-which helps her function as #girlboss she’s designed to be.
Taurus: Eat healthier
When Taurus is stressed, overly indulgent or not-so-healthy eating can creep up on her. The simplest way for her to regain control is to speak to her body by listening to it so she knows when she is hungry and full. She can regularly tune in by asking herself what nutrition she cravesand then make appropriate choices (whether meal prepping or dining out). When Taurus’ eating choices support her vibrance and vitality, she’s greatly benefitting her sensitive and painful body-which promotes an improved sense of calm.
Gemini: Get info
Gemini loves to learn and to talk. Her sign is ruled by Mercury, the earth of thinking and communicating-so when she gets worked up, her mind can race. Getting some answers to her questions makes her feel better. Having facts about her situation makes it easier on her behalf to discuss it with her friends (which is yet another great stress-reliever for Gemini. ) She needs to avoid overconsuming information-any Gemini who’s been down an internet rabbit hole knows this wisdom well. But the right quality and level of information can really put her mercurial mind at ease.
Cancer needs a special cove in which to rest (perhaps her dreamy, double-tap worthy bedroom). She wants to be at home, surrounded by the people and objects that are dear to her heart-this gives her major stress relief. Even though she can make herself quite busy there with lots of projects and nurturing, having alone time is key. Restful solitude helps her process her myriad of emotions, and doing so from the comfort of her own home brings her peace and joy.
Leo is the creator of the zodiac. She wants to share her unique individuality with the world, and obtain recognition in return. Because of this, her perfect calming activity is making or producing something. Whether it’s singing a song, creating a painting, or cooking a meal, Leo feels instantly better when she brings something new to the world. There is nothing worse for the Leo mindset than getting stuck considering her phone. For maximum stress relief, she needs to be actively sharing her light with the planet.
Virgo is hard-wired to help make the world a better place. When this task gets overwhelming (as may happen) Virgo gets stressed out. Taking on an inferior task like a house-cleaning project (or some general Marie Kondo-ing) can help her feel just like she is being productive. She can funnel all of her physical and mental energy in to something tangible that will yield to her efforts. Cleaning produces an instant result that soothes her body, mind, and spirit.
Libra: Talk it out
Libra is the sign of partnership. As such, a Libra needs to have a particular confidante (you know, your go-to meme-tagging BFF) to consult when the going gets tough. Her sign is highly intellectual, so she applies a lot of brain capacity to challenging situations. Having the ability to discuss issues helps her think things through, which can seriously bring down her stress level. Any partner who balances her out is a good choice for a therapeutic conversation.
Scorpio rules union-the merging of the spiritual, emotional, and physical. On the physical plane, merging equals sex. If it’s safe and desired, it could be an awesome stress reliever for Scorpio, allowing her to feel truly merged. If it’s not available or wanted at this time, Scorpio the water sign can easily miss the physical plane and go spiritual-which she does through fantasizing. Fantasy opens gateways of the imagination that allow Scorpio to “merge” on other planes of existence.
Sagittarius: Get philosophical
As the last fire sign, Sagittarius yearns to understand the meaning of the spark of life, and is forever questioning humanity’s purpose. As a philosopher, finding her very own, unique meaning on the planet can help her maintain a positive perspective. She needs to know her mission statement-it helps orient herself as she kicks ass in achieving her goals. When she actually is stressed out, she should seek inspo from great teachers, read inspirational quotes, or opt to craft her very own philosophical code-try journaling.
Capricorn: Make an idea
Capricorn the goat is always climbing the metaphorical mountain-she really wants to be able to see her way up. Once the path gets murky, and she’s unsure of how she’ll execute her plans, it can cause stress. So she needs lots of game plans. On some level, she wants to build her very own empire. It helps to create daily, weekly, and monthly plans, as well as five-, 10-, and 20-year plans-which soothes her industrious (and ambitious) spirit. (Bullet journaling could be the perfect solution. )
Aquarius: Make a vision board
Aquarius is the sign that rules hopes, dreams, and aspirations. In other words-Aquarius is a huge visionary. She has no time for every day banality. When Aquarius is anxious, she can soothe herself by experiencing her ability to envision. She needs to elevate her mind-set. Stepping into visionary thinking by focusing on how she would like what to feel helps her regain perspective and positivity. Creating a vision board collage helps her picture a perfect future, which can be an excellent stress reliever. Aquarius also rules groups, so doing this activity with a couple of friends is a major bonus. Women’s circle, anybody?
Pisces is all about transcendence. Being the last sign of the zodiac, Pisces may be the summary of the knowledge of all the other signs. In astrological theory, Pisces encompasses all that earthly experience and transcends the Earth plane, communing with the spiritual. As the last water sign (which rules emotions), Pisces feels all the feelings of humanity. She actually is empathetic and painful and sensitive, and needs to take action with all of this emotion and understanding. Her best stress-fighting prescription? Meditating. It clears her mind and connects her to her intuition, which transmutes waves of emotions to peacefulness and higher understanding.
