I have never really explored my love for astrology in any of my previous posts. But I thought this might be the right time for it.
I have talked about self love in previous posts, be sure to check out my post on Self Love Secrets that will change your life.
Self love is essential for personal growth and development.
And your zodiac signs are indicative of where you might need to be pouring your self love to.
Self Love Activities for Your Zodiac Sign
Aries (March 21- April20)
Aries are known for their brutal honesty, independence and passion. They are often trailblazers in any field they chose to partake in. They rarely care about the opinions of others, and never let it stand in the way of following their passions. They are usually the people you want to go to for direct, honest and rational advice. But they can also be good hype people when you want to do something stupid.
Some Aries are known for having explosive tempers. They are also known for always being on the go, go and go and often forget to practice self care. They can sometimes be rigid in their view of the world and have a hard time accepting other points of view.
Self Love Activities for Aries:
1.Spending 1 hour every morning or every night, slowing things down:
Take some time for yourself every single day where you slow down and enjoy the little things. Sip your coffee with the intention of tasting every bean and savouring the aroma. When you are washing your face, do not vigorously rub your face, instead slow down and be gentle.
A great idea for you will also be to get a plant or a pet, so that you have something besides yourself to take care of. At least this will give you an excuse to slow down. You can also try meditation, which is the perfect activity to slow down time and just be at peace.
2. Travel and Talk
Yes, travel more and talk to people outside of your inner circle more. This will help you expand your mind’s horizons and be more open to other people’s opinions and feelings.
Taurus – (April 21 – May 20)
Taurus are very accommodating people by nature. They are open to new ways of life and thinking. They can be typically drama free, if they want to be. Taurus are pleasure seeking people and love the finer things in life. They are extremely reliable and can make great friends and partners.
One major downfall of Taurus is they are as stubborn as they come. They will not admit they are wrong and will fight till the end for what they believe to be true, even when they are wrong. They are also creatures of comfort, so they will take any excuse necessary to not to do what they have to do right away.
Self Love Activities for Taurus:
- Seek Discomfort:
Do things that you think are hard and keep growing. If you are afraid of starting something new, traveling somewhere etc, try to do it. Doing things that scare you and overcoming them will actually help you see that it’s okay to let go. The truth is when you let go, things get even better.
2. Treat fights / Disagreements as Conversations
Don’t view conflict with a fight or flight instinct. See it as an opportunity for growth and understanding. If someone feels passionately about a subject in contradiction to what you feel, ask them questions about why they feel that way instead of telling them why you don’t agree with them or why they shouldn’t feel that way.

Geminis are total chameleons, they can get along with basically anyone (if they want to). They can be super energetic and have the wildest imagination, which can be both good and bad for them. They are mostly loyal unless they feel a lack of commitment from their friends or partners.

This will help you tune your intuition and trust your gut instinct.
2. Assess Your Day
At the end of each day, have a conversation with yourself or write down answers to the following questions:

These questions will help you gauge a better understanding of what you want out of life and enable you to take quick action.

Anytime you see someone in trouble, your kind heart believes it’s your job to fix them. But guess what? Sometimes it’s not. You need to check with yourself if you have the capacity to be of service to them. Anytime you think, “I need to fix this or do this right away,” also ask yourself Why?
