International Women’s Day is celebrated on March 8th. This special day has been celebrated for over a century in honor of women’s social, economic, cultural, and political achievements. This is when social media and traditional media outlets promote activities that help women achieve their goals without bias or limitations. Across the globe, groups raise money and awareness for women-centric charities. This is also a day when women should focus on self-care as they are often the primary providers of families. Let’s talk about the self-care tips for women of each zodiac sign in honor of International Women’s Day.
Aries – Get Yourself A Good Workout
Aries, you are full of passion and energy, and if you don’t correctly channel it, you will lose your temper quickly and become more impatient. You are a go-getter and a fierce caretaker, but you can quickly burn out, and when that happens, you struggle with your temper and impatience. That is why the best thing you can do is get a good workout before you start your day. You can also run first thing in the morning or do your aerobics workout before you head to work. You will feel energized throughout the day and take on more responsibility easily because of that.
Taurus – Light Scented Candles Around Your Home
Taurus, you are sensual, and when you satisfy your senses, you get a dopamine fix which puts you in a good mood. However, you want to do it in a way that nurtures you instead of hurting you in the long run. That is why one of the nurturing things you can do is light scented candles in your home to get the best aromatherapy while you are there. If you work at a home office, you will want to keep a scented candle to keep up with your day. You will want to do the same thing if you do chores around the home. And before bed, light a lavender-scented candle so you can get yourself sleepy and have a good night’s rest.
Gemini – Do Some Journaling Daily
Gemini, you are highly communicative and have much to say. That is why the best self-care tip for you is to journal. That tip is ideal for anyone, regardless of their zodiac sign. However, in your case, Gemini, you are constantly full of thoughts and things to say, and there are not always others around for you to hear them. You also feel that you have too many thoughts you keep to yourself, which frustrates you. Therefore, with a journal, you can express anything you want and need to without any filter. That can be helpful to you as it is a great release.
Cancer – Utilize The Power Of Crystals
Cancer, you are incredibly empathetic, and you will be the one to take on the problems of others, as that will create imbalances within you. The best way to help combat that is by working with crystals and harnessing their power so they can help keep you protected from unwanted energies around you as you build some strength. Therefore, you will want to learn about the best ones for you, such as moonstone, and the protective properties of black tourmaline, amethyst, clear quartz, and so on, and work with the crystals each morning before you start your day so their energies can keep you balanced and protected.
Leo – Dance To Your Heart’s Content
Leo, you need excitement in your life, and if you don’t have the excitement you need, you will fall into a slump. And it gets even more challenging for you if you are bogged down with too many responsibilities. You no longer shine, so one of the best things you can do is to dance to your heart’s content. Listen to music that you like, and dance to it. Since you love others to notice you, you can do videos of yourself dancing on TikTok if you prefer, but there may be times when you may not even want that. Just do it each night after dealing with the daily stress.
Virgo – Do Some Meditating As You Clean
Virgo, you are highly analytical, and you are also the one that can get stressed out if you need to do something the best way possible. Therefore, you can be tough on yourself and others, which is not good for you. You are at peace when you are cleaning and organizing; while you do that, you will want to get meditative so you can clean as you clear your mind. After you finish the cleaning, you will feel much more refreshed as you will be patient with others and yourself.
Libra – Do Some Yoga Each Day
Libra, you are all about balance, and when you feel imbalanced, you are not in good shape or spirits. And you tend to sacrifice your wants and needs to please others, which creates a lot of imbalance. There is one thing you can do to get some balance back, and that is by doing a yoga ritual each morning. Before you start working, do some yoga, and you will feel so much better after you do it. You can even place some crystals surrounding you as you do your yoga poses to make the experience calming.
Scorpio – Do A One-Card Tarot Pull Each Morning
Scorpio, you are intense and passionate, and you also are highly intuitive and do a lot of work within to attempt to understand yourself and the energies surrounding you. And that is why you will want to do a one-card tarot pull each morning before you start your day so you can reflect on it and journal it so you can track the patterns that keep showing up and gain the insight you need from it. That way, you will understand the energies surrounding you and how you react to them. That can help you develop some problem-solving skills.
Sagittarius – Take A Walk At Different Times Of Day
Sagittarius, you are adventurous and optimistic and need your routine to be shaken up. However, when you are bogged down with too much responsibility, you lose your bright side and burn out quickly. That makes you quite unhappy; unfortunately, you cannot escape responsibility. And that is when you need to do some self-care. Therefore, the best thing you can do is to take a walk each day, and you will want to take your walk at different times each day to shake up your routine. You can take a half-hour or an hour-long walk if your schedule permits. You will feel so much better.
Capricorn – Set Your Intention Each Morning
Capricorn, you are ambitious, productive, and goal-oriented. And you also know that burning out will not solve anything and will worsen your mind, body, and spirit. That is why one of the best things you can do to take care of yourself is to set an intention each morning to fulfill something for the day. For example, you should set your intention to rest longer if you did too much the previous day. You will want to put an intention to focus on a particular task if you have been ignoring it for a while. You will feel much better as you put these intentions into your days and stick to them.
Aquarius – Unplug For An Hour Each Day
Aquarius, you are progressive and heavily into technology. Therefore, that can wreak havoc in your mind if you spend too much time online, and that goes for anyone, but you are affected profoundly. The best thing you can do is unplug for an hour each day. Stay away from your phone, laptop, or tablet just for an hour (as long as you are not working), and go pick up a book and read it, or spend time in the kitchen baking something, or do some gardening if you are fortunate to live in a warmer climate. That is the best way to care for yourself.
Pisces – Get Some H2O Into You Each Morning
Pisces, you are intuitive, artsy, and dreamy, and often you do so much for others you forget that you have needs and wants too. The best thing you can do is start your day with a tall glass of water so you can go through your day with clarity which will help you set boundaries and stay balanced. Everyone needs water, but because you are a sensitive water sign, it is even more essential to start your day by drinking plenty of water.
Women have always been known to be the family’s caregivers and were expected to sacrifice themselves to serve others. That expectation has to go because women are just as deserving of having their needs met as men, and that is why women must learn about the best self-care tips they can utilize. Everyone has each sign in their horoscope so these self-care tips will work for every woman. March 8th is International Women’s Day, which is the day to celebrate women worldwide, and that is a great reminder that women need to celebrate themselves through self-care.
