The Self-Care Habit You Should Try, Based on Your Zodiac Sign

By Belo Medical Group on September 21, 2020

Quarantine season, for many, has become self-care season. Now that we’ve hit pause on our normal work and lifestyle, we’re beginning to reconsider our habits and the things we dedicate our time to. (As it turns out, spending four hours commuting to and from work was making us extremely unhappy.) But that doesn’t mean working from home is completely stress-free. Depending on your zodiac sign, you may be turning to different ways to help unwind after a long work day. Read on for new ideas…or just to say, “Yep, that’s so me!”

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

You’re brave and ambitious, and you’re always the first to try something new. That’s why you should give high-intensity interval training (HIIT) workouts a shot. For the headstrong Aries, pushing yourself to the limit is the epitome of loving yourself.

Fellow Aries: Kim Chiu, Vice Ganda

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Taurus, there’s no bigger fan of relaxation and sensuality than you are. Your new self-care habit is meditation. You’ve learned to become aware of your thoughts and feelings…and realizing that you’re neither your thoughts nor your feelings. So whether you’re in line at the drugstore or in bed waiting to drift off, your mind and your body are at ease.

Fellow Tauruses: Daniel Padilla, Maine Mendoza

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Geminis are social butterflies, adept at handling change. That’s why you can try zhuzhing up your apartment, so it looks perfect for those Zoom meetings and e-numans. If the new normal involves staying home, making adjustments so it’s prettier and cozier is no skin off your back. Whether it’s a new desk setup or just pops of decor here and there, your place is getting a major facelift!

Fellow Gemini: Morissette Amon, Martine Ho

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

You’re one of the foremost experts on the zodiac when it comes to caring for yourself and others, so try caring for a plant (or five!) this quarantine. Your nurturing nature will make you excellent at keeping green babies alive. Not to mention how this new habit will improve the air quality for you and your loved ones at home!

Fellow Cancers: Sue Ramirez, John Arcilla

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Leos love themselves. A lot. More to the point, they love to pamper themselves. Your new habit is a spa experience at home, in the form of a luxurious body scrub routine. You deserve a 30-minute exfoliation session that leaves you feeling baby-smooth and gorgeous! 

Fellow Leos: Sarah Geronimo, Iza Calzado

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

You guys are perfectionists by nature, and you want to use the quarantine period to optimize your life and habits. Some of the other signs might balk at this, but you should try Marie Kondo-ing your apartment soon. Letting go of the things that no longer bring you joy—and creating a tidier, more organized space in the process—is definitely going to hit the spot.

Fellow Virgos: Amy Perez-Castillo, Ogie Alcasid

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Libras love harmony and balance, and they value that same level of equilibrium in their personal lives. Your new self-care habit to try is yoga and stretching. You’ve been feeling wound-up lately from long hours at your home office, and all that back pain is becoming untenable. Practicing basic yoga stretches and positions will help loosen you up and make you feel like yourself again.

Fellow Libras: Rhian Ramos, Janine Gutierrez

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

You are one of the most passionate signs in the zodiac, but with quarantine restrictions making dating difficult right now, we’ve got an alternative for you. Now’s the time to finally give romantic K-dramas a chance (if you haven’t already)! Plop yourself in front of the TV and give Crash Landing on You a chance already. We promise you won’t regret it!

Fellow Scorpios: Leila Alcasid, Jane de Leon

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

How’s that wanderlust, Sag? With travel being too difficult to do right now, your new quarantine habit is learning to make coffee at home. Buy beans sourced from various parts of the world, learn new brewing techniques, and let the tasting notes transport you to the fields of Kenya, Brazil, and even the northern Philippines (click these links for ideas on where to get your beans!). There’s a lot to discover in a cup!

Fellow Sags: Gabbi Garcia, Derek Ramsay

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Even when the normal world has come to a standstill, self-improvement is still your number one goal. Your self-care habit is scouring the Internet for free online courses by Ivy League schools…and acing them effortlessly. (This Yale course on the science of well-being is one of the most popular free courses this year). We’ve got nothing on you, Cap!

Fellow Capricorns: Alex Gonzaga, Alden Richards

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Fellow Aquarians: Dr. Vicki Belo, Anne Curtis

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

The Pisces loves to ~*feel*~. And we want you to stay in touch with your emotional side; after all, it’s what makes you you! Why don’t you create a special space in your home for scented candles, essential oils, or even sage and palo santo? Having a dedicated area for scents and smells will incite feelings of contentment and relaxation…and it’ll look super cute on your Instagram Story.

Fellow Pisceans: Isabelle Daza, Julia Barretto

In the end, we turn to the habits that make us happy. So whether or not you try our suggestions, what matters is that you’re doing what you truly want to do with your time. Just remember—you’re doing the best you can under difficult circumstances, so you deserve to feel happy and relaxed!
