Aries (March 21st – April 19th)
Aries tends to be physically healthy, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t practice self care. You’ve got a lot of energy (not to mention aggression) and it’s good to channel that in positive ways. For instance, taking long runs or participating in non-aggressive sports like tennis or cycling are constructive ways of expending some of the excess energy. Plan on running a half marathon in 2018 and start using your free time to train. Set plenty of goals for yourself along the way. But don’t forget to take some time at the end of the day to chill and self-reflect — you’re not always good at sitting still, but you could learn a thing or two from meditation. If anyone just needs to breathe, Aries, it’s you.
Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)
You’re all about the senses, Taurus, which means your self care has a lot to do with things you can touch, taste, and see. You know what they say: treat yo’self. Fill your apartment with soft pillows and keep your fridge stocked with your favorite wine. Splurge on a spa day. Don’t overindulge, but definitely indulge. And don’t forget to give your emotions a little TLC, too. You have a whole well of complicated feelings you haven’t found a way to express, and suppressing them has definitely been more than a little stressful in the past. Open up to someone you trust and tell them how you’ve been feeling. Your emotions are valid. Treat them like they are.
Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)
You have so much going on in your head that a diary can’t even begin to hold. Besides, what’s the fun of telling your feelings to something that can’t even talk back? You don’t love getting deep with just anybody, but you’ve got your small group of tight-knit people that you’d trust with anything. Confide in close friends and let them help you sift through your thoughts and emotions. You don’t always have the most unbiased judgment, so hopefully others will help you find firm footing. And definitely don’t neglect your creative side in 2018 — you have so many things you want to create, so take some time out of every week and work on things that are just for you.
Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)
You’re a homebody at heart, Cancer, and you need to be around people you love to be at ease. In 2018, spend time with family and old friends that you’ve been neglecting recently. Bake lots of goodies (enough to feed a small army), cook with your loved ones, and light candles all around your room. Read a book. You find comfort in the simple things, and that’s where you should focus your energy in 2018. Don’t feel bad if that means turning people away — you expend too much energy trying to deal with other people’s emotions and problems. You love to feel needed, but right now, you need you. Don’t feel guilty for being selfish.
