After yesterday’s election stress, it’s time for us to take care of ourselves. Of course, our zodiac-loving brains are thinking that the stars are on our side. To find out what form of self-care you should schedule for yourself after the election, we’ve reached out to astrologer Jessica Adams to get the scoop. Now let’s get cosmic with our care…
When things are feeling particularly turbulent or topsy-turvy in your life, you tend to look to those you love for support. After all, your friends and family can’t be compared (especially since you prefer quality over quantity when it comes to your inner circle). That’s why, in the name of self-care, we highly recommend that you plan a friendship-based trip in the not-so-distant future. Ooh! Or maybe you could even plan to host a Friendsgiving, to gather all those positive energies in one place where you can shine.
Now that the stress of the election is starting to wind down, you probably want to escape reality right about now. This is likely being encouraged by your ever-flourishing imagination, which makes you want to try new things that allow you to feel like you’re in a different world. So, why not take a meditation class? Grab your comfy clothes, bring some essential oils, play some soothing music to get in the mood, and get ready to travel to a higher plane of existence in the name of relaxation.
You have the energy of a leader, meaning that your courage, passion, and optimism can’t be compared. Keeping this in mind, we can’t exactly picture you sitting still. That’s why we think it would do you some good to try a new hobby as a form of self-care. You could aim to form a running group, join a pottery class, or maybe even sign up for a fitness membership that will allow you to get out some of that energy and tension you have bottled up in your beautiful being.
Nothing in your life is ever half-assed, which is why many see you as operating at full-speed or, well, not at all. If you take this into account when planning for a self-care day, it’s likely that you either want to do absolutely nothing or ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING. In this case, we suggest you go with the latter because the holiday season is upon us and you probably want to start saving some cash. To help with this, why not go surround yourself with nature? You could go on a hike, take a trip to the beach, or even do some gardening. Because nature is freeeeeeeeeeeeeee.
Hmmm… It’s difficult to put a finger on exactly what would be the ideal form of self-care for you, Gemini, since you have a versatile personality. What works for you one day might not work the next, which is awesome and exciting, but also makes it difficult to find just one version of self-care for you. To remedy this, we’re going to suggest that you take part in a form of self-care that’s readily available: Technology! To avoid the stresses of the real world, you can escape to the virtual world on your smartphone. Now start following some inspiring Twitter account, artistic Instagrams, and stress-relieving YouTube channels!
Since you’re already in-tune with your emotions to the point where it may feel as though you’re on a never-ending emotional roller coaster, it would be great if you could find a way to unleash some of this energy. Honestly, we think it would be super cool if you grabbed some paints and a canvas, and got to painting whatever it is you’re feeling in the moment. We imagine this would be therapeutic for you, giving you the means to bring your feelings to life.
