Getting Grounded

The right mindfulness practice for you, according to your zodiac sign

By MWB Desk

Aries

(March 21st to April 19th)

Aries are known for their strong will, leadership skills, and bravery. They’re constantly seeking new adventures as their soul strives to pack as many experiences as possible into one lifetime. This sometimes makes them hard to stay present. Mindful practices like dancing techniques, massage therapy, or hiking can help the Ram reconnect with their bodies and energies and enjoy everything now has to offer.

Taurus

(April 20th to May 21st)

The sensual Taurus connects deeply with Mother Earth and her beauty. When escaping into the great outdoors isn’t an option for this Earth sign, it’s important to find ways to bring the outside in. This highly sensual member of the zodiac is particularly sensitive to the mood-enhancing qualities of scent, so aromatherapy, be it through scented candles, massages, or a bath bomb, is a surefire way towards rejuvenation.

Gemini

(May 22nd to June 21st)

Ruled by Mercury, Geminis have some of the busiest minds in the zodiac, always analyzing their position from multiple perspectives while hypothesizing on their next moves. As good as this makes them at strategy, sometimes, it can be exhausting and overwhelming. The Gemini has a delicate nervous system, and affirmations grounded in the present moment are helpful ways of letting them navigate away from the future and return to reality.

Cancer

(June 22nd to July 22nd)

Cancers are some of the most emotionally sensitive and empathic members of the zodiac, often picking up on the moods of those around them without even realizing it. For this reason, emotional shifts can come without much warning, especially when surrounded by temperamental personalities. It is important for this sign to remember to prioritize themselves, and making a task list of material and emotional needs to be fulfilled is the first step in doing just that.

Leo

(July 23rd to August 22nd)

Honored as the only sign ruled by the Sun, Leos have a natural warmth and strong light radiating from within. Though their natural charms usually allow them to get what they want, it is knowing what they really want or need that they struggle with. Taking a little time for some meditation and introspection is just what the doctor ordered.

Virgo

(August 23rd to September 22nd)

Virgos have a natural desire for perfectionism – and that requires a lot of detail-oriented thinking. Maintaining a journal for regular “brain dumps” helps take the pressure off the neural circuitry, and can lead to some creative release as well.

Libra

(September 23rd to October 22nd)

As the astrological embodiment of beauty and grace, Libras often strive to create harmony wherever they go. For a happier outlook on life, finding time to see the beauty in the simplicity helps them feel connected to something greater. Nature-based activities will help plant the seeds to get their ideas going.

Scorpio

(October 23rd to November 22nd)

With a mysterious allure, natural intuition, and an uncanny ability to see beyond facades, Scorpios are some of the most magical members of the zodiac. This water sign is always looking for opportunities to tap into their personal power and evolve. As a sign that is naturally gifted in clairvoyant abilities, consider developing a meditation practice to help you navigate the waters of your mind.

Sagittarius

(November 23rd to December 21st)

The Sagittarius is a big idea kind of person, a visionary that inspires everyone around them. Sometimes this needs a safe space to let out what they hold in. This is where therapy or group spaces can be helpful to release any pent up energy.

Capricorn

(December 22nd to January 20th)

This pragmatic member of the zodiac tends to prefer a bit of logic behind their spiritual tools. Herbalism offers a healthy balance between the real world and spiritual healing, marrying scientific study with mysticism.

Aquarius

(January 21st to February 18th)

Aquarians are thought to be some of the most playful and artistic members of the zodiac, with minds that are brimming with creative ideas finessed by their unique brand of genius. For this reason, everything they invest in must have a touch of flair if it’s going to hold their attention. Finding an online community would be beneficial. It’s a way for you to feel interconnected and meet a variety of personalities.

Pisces

(February 19th to March 20th)

Pisces are considered to be the rulers of the dream realms, which puts them in a unique position to receive messages from beyond while immersed in sleep. Guided sleep meditation and dream journals help unlock their potential to the fullest.
