Winter Self-Care for Your Zodiac Sign

As we enter nature’s hibernation season, we need to adjust our habits to keep our energy levels healthy. One great way to do that is by looking at what your zodiac sign can do to stay balanced in light of the cold weather.

We know that the winter months are a bit more challenging for our bodies and minds because we get less sunshine and crave foods that might even make us a bit more sluggish. This can reduce our motivation to keep up with daily exercise.

When the seasons change, our wellness lifestyle can change along with them and that way we can go through the cycles of growth and change with nature instead of fighting them.

Winter Self-Care for Your Zodiac Sign?

Astrologically, we go through cycles with nature each year, with winter solstice December 21st marking a turning point in our own inner transformation.

As we enter into this season of reflection and inner transformation, it’s great to think about ways to use this season for spiritual and personal grown. First stop on that journey? Personalized self-care rituals.

Self-Care for Aries

Aries links to the head, brain, and eyes so this winter, keep your head warm with hats and your mind calm with these tips.

Aries is a fire sign, and alcohol and caffeine can increase its moodiness. During the winter months, instead of these beverages, get a selection of soothing teas to help you bring balance to your temper and keep you relaxed when you feel like things aren’t happening fast enough. Look to the comforting and potent kava kava root for a tea that will help you find your zen by the fireplace.

Get some crystals that will help you stay in a high vibration while keeping you calm. Moonstone is great for connecting to your higher self and feeling a sense of peace. As far as activity goes, look to a soothing but energetic yoga class that keeps you connected to your spiritual life more than worrying about your six-pack.

Don’t forget to keep up on your Aries horoscope.

Self-Care for Taurus

Taurus links to the neck and throat so it’s best to keep thick warm scarfs wrapped around you this season and use these tips to keep this area healthy.

Taurus is an earth sign that gets extra lethargic in the wintertime so look to foods that are warming to keep your energy up. Foods with black pepper, soups, jalapenos, and red chilli peppers will help keep you from feel chilly and tired. It requires extra energy to heat up your body and digest cold food.

Next, instead of fighting your urge to slow down, use that urge to embrace a meditation practice and try some new techniques from teachers or books.

Finally, to get yourself energized, use moldavite in meditation or carry it throughout the day to increase creative ideas and deepen your spiritual connection to your soul by keeping your vibration and thoughts positive and expansive.

You can stay up on your daily Taurus horoscope to see how you will be feeling.

Self-Care for Gemini

Gemini links to the hands, arms, and nerves, so this winter, be sure to wear warm gloves to keep yourself from losing heat through your hands and to keep the positive energy flowing, use these simple tips. Incorporate cooked grounding root vegetables and plants grown close to the ground into your diet this winter to help you feel grounded as we know your mind likes to jump around because you’re an air sign. Things like pumpkin soup, baked sweet potato, and cooked beets will help.

We also know you have an insatiable curiosity so browse the bookstore for some spiritually inspiring books to get you through the winter with information that will feed your soul. Finally, find a grounding crystal like red jasper to help reduce scattered thinking and help you stay organized.

Self-Care for Cancer

Cancer is linked to your stomach and chest so this summer, keep your core extra warm with vests and layers under your coat.

Cancer is a water sign and feels things very deeply. To keep yourself feeling your best, use these simple tips to keep your stomach happy and your heart open. We know the crab of the Universe can shut down easily so do things that send a message of love to yourself like booking a massage or buying yourself gifts that you want. When you love yourself, you will attract kind people to you. Look to healthy stews and heating spices instead of heavy dairy and carbs to keep your stomach feeling good. Ginger, cinnamon, and cayenne will be your magical potions. The scent of vanilla can keep your vibes up and self-love inspiring rose quartz crystal which helps the energy in your heart continue to heal.

Self-Care for Leo

Leo links to the upper back and the spine so be sure to stretch your spine throughout the day and stave off winter stiffness that can zap your fire energy. Try simple spinal flexes in a cross-legged position for three minutes daily by moving your spine back and forth between arched and rounded.

Then to keep your energy high as you love to do, try a weekly sugar scrub that will help hydrate your skin and make you feel fabulous. Look to the comforting and soul-soothing practice of restorative yoga, which can help you have time for self-reflection and insights. Get a winter journal to keep an open dialogue about your feelings and how the environment reflects your own attitude to stay empowered and aware of your personal ability to positively affect things.

Avoid excess sugar and caffeine that will lead to hormone disturbances and look to hormone balancers like maca and ashwagandha.

Be in the know about your daily Leo horoscope all season for emotional insights.

Self-Care for Virgo

Virgo is linked to your spleen (which helps fight bacteria and filters our blood) as well as the digestive system. To put it bluntly, regular digestion and relaxing are going to be important things to focus on for you. Digestion is aided by some of our favorite holiday foods like figs, pears, and fibrous apples so indulge and keep them handy.

Virgo is an earth sign which can be a bit of a worrier if they don’t keep their mind busy and planning the holidays can be something you obsess over. Instead of creating endless distractions this winter, train your mind to think positive with affirmations. Pick one you resonate with and write it twenty times each morning and night. Embrace the essential oil lavender to keep those nerves in your stomach calm and do some fun and relaxing baking for yourself. Baking has lots of details you can perfect.

Prepare and know the planetary specifics by following your daily Virgo horoscope.

Self-Care for Libra

Libra is linked to the kidneys and lower back so spend a few minutes each day stretching your lower back by reaching for your toes. In order to keep the kidneys healthy, drink lots of water and avoid refined sugar or frequent alcohol consumption, which strains the kidneys significantly.

Libra is an air sign that likes to help people but often forgets self-care in that process. This winter, make a habit of doing some daily exercise that you enjoy whether it’s a brisk walk, a bike ride, or a fitness class. We know Libras love to dance, so while it’s cold, try learning a new style of dance. Look to the aura protecting crystal blue kyanite so you don’t take on everyone’s drama and try to fix it all. To put your active mind at ease, find a meditative hobby such as drawing, knitting, singing, or playing an instrument that helps you de-stress and relax.

To keep up to speed on your changing cosmic influences, read your daily Libra horoscope.

Self-Care for Scorpio

Scorpio is linked to the reproductive organs so adaptogen herbs like ginseng that help with hormonal balance can help a Scorpio.

Scorpio is a water sign that wants to connect with others emotionally so group therapy or group meditations lead to those deep and healing bonds you crave and can help you feel connected to your fellow humans during this season. Finally, we know that Scorpios are all or nothing minded folks that often get obsessed with their interests and leave other areas of life forgotten, so to feel good, find a way to bring balance into your home and environment this season whether that means cleaning out your closet or getting on top of a stack of bills. Create an external environment that inspires you to be the person you want to be this winter. To calm your intensity, look to the soothing blue lace agate crystal.

Unlock your energetic upgrades by following your daily Scorpio horoscope.

Self-Care for Sagittarius

Sagittarius is linked to your liver, legs, and hips so doing some cardiovascular exercise will help the health of these areas remain strong. Sagittarius is also an impulsive fire sign and too much spontaneity can add unnecessary stress in your life.

This season, create a few healthy living routines like adding a daily vitamin, daily salad, daily yoga session, or something similar to give you a little bit of structure and feel some stability. You are a natural visionary and one great way to open your vision center, the third eye, is to switch to non-toxic products so start incorporating natural soaps, lotions, cleaning agents, and personal hygiene products to help open you to higher frequencies that are accessed when your body isn’t processing those toxins.

In this soul searching self-care, look to the crystal seraphinite which is known to help you have sage-like wisdom.

Self-Care for Capricorn

Capricorn is linked to your bones and joints so this season, give yourself the gift of some omega fatty acids (found in supplements, fish, avocado, etc) that help the joints and a Vitamin D supplement to help you process calcium.

Capricorn is an earth sign that we know to be the hardest working of all the signs so this season, schedule breaks for fun activities by planning them in advance. That means, get tickets to see plays, operas, concerts, or join a spiritual training program so you can do something just for you that opens your emotional side.

Start playing uplifting music so you will feel good vibes at work and give yourself some healing herbal teas that stimulate the upper chakras such as lavender, rose, or jasmine.

Keep your mind open with your personal daily Capricorn horoscope and let new opportunities synchronize into your reality.

Self-Care for Aquarius

Aquarius is linked to the ankles and blood circulation so to keep yourself healthy, do ten minutes of slow deep breathing which brings oxygen to the blood and purifies it. Put your feet up a wall to reverse blood flow and allow the feet to get a daily break for a few minutes.

Aquarius is an air sign that puts tremendous pressure on themselves to help the world which can feel like carrying a burden. This season, write a daily love letter to yourself that helps you celebrate what you’re already doing and helps you see you’re making a difference. Give yourself time to sit and eat three meals a day as a way to rest among your flurry of activities. Make sure your meals have protein, fat, and fiber. Finally, look for a piece of hematite or another grounding crystal that you can carry with you to keep your ideas from overwhelming you and to keep your mind focused.

To get to know your soul this season, read your daily Aquarius horoscope.

Self-Care for Pisces

Pisces is linked to your lymphatic system and feet. The lymphatic system removes bacteria from your body and keeps you from getting sick. Do some daily gentle inversions to give your lymphatic system a jump-start (try downward dog and standing forward fold).

Pisces is a water sign that craves human interaction and finds joy through artistic media. During the colder months, find a way to incorporate sound healing into your life to heal some old negative thoughts, habits, or memories. Gong baths, a crystal bowl healing, or similar events will help you heal while still getting to be around kindred spirits. Also, make it a point to save your money instead of spending it as often as possible to lower stress.

Reduce toxins as much as possible to keep your body healthy and emotions positive. Challenge yourself to always go for a healthy alternative this season.

Keep up to date on the cosmic music for your sign with your daily Pisces horoscope.

Stay Warm & Loved This Winter

Knowing your nature and your own physical places that can become problematic based on your astrological sun sign can help you thrive this winter. Knowing how your sign can get out of balance can allow you to keep life magical because you can use that knowledge to keep things steady.

If you want more self-care insights, look up your moon sign which represents your inner emotional needs, and do the tips for that sign as well. There is so much self-care to explore because each person is not just their sun sign but a full chart of unique cosmic placements that make your soul unique and your intuition knows what you need more than anyone. More than anything, keep checking in with your body each moment to strengthen the connection you have to your mind, body, and spirit and to get tuned into your unique needs and intuition.
