INCE THE DAWN OF TIME, PEOPLE HAVE BEEN USING ASTROLOGY AS A MEANS OF FINDING PURPOSE AND GUIDANCE IN THEIR LIVES. Even today, with the many technological advances our society has witnessed, astrology is an invaluable resource for those seeking empowerment and self-discovery.
In keeping with this age-old practice, today let’s take a look at what each zodiac sign must do to find peace of mind.
ARIES (MARCH 21 – APRIL 19)
Those who fall under the Zodiac sign of Aries tend to be passionate and confident. At the same time, they can be short-tempered and impulsive.
If this describes you, focus on achieving balance by finding time to relax and meditate. Work on decluttering your professional and personal life by simplifying your routine, home and workspace.
TAURUS (APRIL 20 – MAY 20)
Tauruses are generally warm, kind-hearted people. They can, however, become rigid, stubborn and possessive when things don’t go their way.
If this is you, achieve balance by spending more time thinking about how your actions affect others. Make a conscious effort to truly listen to others’ ideas before you speak up in support of your own.
GEMINI (MAY 21 – JUNE 20)
Geminis are highly intelligent and upbeat people who often find themselves surrounded by tension.
If you are a Gemini, balance that tension by learning to control your nerves – perhaps with the help of meditation or through the use of a herbal tea.
CANCER (JUNE 21 – JULY 22)
Cancers are very caring and protective. Those attributes, while great, can become overbearing to the point where they manifest in clinginess.
Cancers ought to take care and find ways of nurturing themselves that don’t require clinging onto another person, place or situation. Yoga – or any other activity that focuses on the present, inner self – can go a long way towards achieving this.
LEO (JULY 23 – AUGUST 22)
While Leos enjoy incredible boldness and creativity, these attributes can lead to bossy behavior and self-indulgence.
If you are a Leo, balance these two aspects of your personality through development of your listening skills. Focus on hearing people out and giving their ideas and thoughts a chance. As far as your tendency towards self-indulgence goes, counter this by spending time listening to and caring for others’ needs.
VIRGO (AUGUST 23 – SEPTEMBER 22)
Virgos are all about the analytics. This can lead to them being perfectionists that overthink details of every little situation.
Virgos ought to balance this out by getting outside of their heads more often. When possible, solve problems mentally while taking walks outside instead of sitting in front of a computer screen.
Virgos also need to pay attention to their inner dialogue and watch out for overly self-critical language.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 23 – OCTOBER 22)
Libras are very idealistic, easy-to-please people. Unfortunately, this can render them gullible and easily taken advantage of.
If you’re a Libra, make a conscious effort to stand up for yourself more often. When negotiating situations, take micro-risks by asking for small things the other person may not have offered right off the bat. This will help you balance your easy-going nature with practicality and confidence.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 23 – NOVEMBER 21)
Scorpios are incredibly passionate, which can sometimes boil over into obsessiveness and jealousy.
If this is you, balance these two sides of your personality out by practicing deep breathing techniques whenever you feel your emotions getting the better of you.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 22 – DECEMBER 21)
Those who fall under the Zodiac sign of Sagittarius are very optimistic, to the point where they forget that the universe doesn’t always reward such thinking.
If your Zodiac sign is Sagittarius, make two sets of goals and predictions – one optimistic set that you’d love to see unfold and a second realistic goal. This will help you grow accustomed to being satisfied with reality.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 22 – JANUARY 19)
Capricorns are incredibly practical, which often boils over into pessimism.
Such individuals ought to find balance by making an effort to write down bright moments of each day. By doing so, Capricorns will find that they are able to see the positivity in things they previously would have overlooked as negative.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 20 – FEBRUARY 18)
Aquarians are incredibly free-spirited, a trait that can make them seem distant and unpredictable to loved ones.
If this is you, find balance by making an effort to communicate your thoughts, feelings and plans with loved ones. Allowing them to feel included in your free-spirited nature will go a long way.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 19 – MARCH 20)
Pisceans are very sensitive, which makes them great empaths but also has the effect of making them overly soft and vague in times in stress.
To balance this out, Pisceans should figure out what they can do to be less stressed out. This will help them escape the cycle of feeling like a victim of circumstance.
