As day and night strike a perfect balance in the autumn equinox, we enter the equally balanced Libra season. Along with celebrating harmony, aesthetics, and love, Libra season is the perfect time for those with sun, moon, or rising signs in Libra to get a “breath of fresh air” as they reconnect with themselves and others through intentional self-care practices.
Self-Care Tips for Libras
Strive for balance.
The Libra is represented by the scale – a pure sign of balance and harmony. As a Libra, living life in balance may come naturally to you. But how balanced is the yin and yang of your self-care rituals? Take a look at your current ritual and consider what practices are yin (restful, nourishing, calming – like meditation or baths) and what practices are yang (active, stimulating, liberating – like exercise or breathwork). We all need both types of self-care, so adjust as needed to strike a healthy balance between the two.
Set the mood.
Libra, you live for the elegance of an occasion. While washing your face or trimming your nails may not seem like much of an event, setting the mood helps you create a magical moment in the everyday. Light a candle, put on some soothing music, and make your ritual truly special.
Nurture your inner voice.
Libras are known for being balanced and fair, and you often bring new perspectives to conversations. But, this gift can also cause you trouble. Your keen ability to see all sides of a situation can make you indecisive. Sometimes, you may even find yourself confused about what you believe, because you are always putting yourself in others’ shoes. Create a self-care ritual that gives you time and space to listen to your gut instincts. Nurture that inner voice inside you with meditation and journaling.
Self-Care Products for Libras
Species by the Thousands Venus Aromatherapy Mist
Lovely Libra is ruled by Venus. But being guarded by the goddess of love isn’t always rosy. It’s common for Libras to get caught up in social dramas or, conversely, long for more connection with others. When you’re feeling out of balance in your social or love life, the Venus Aromatherapy Mist helps you restore your sense of harmony and unconditional love with tender floral scents of Amyris, neroli, sandalwood, and ylang ylang.
Simply spritz the Venus Aromatherapy Mist before starting your morning and evening self-care routines to invoke harmony, peace, and self-love. Or, to get to the bottom of an interpersonal issue that’s weighing on your heart, grab your mist and your favorite tarot deck. Spritz, breathe, and ask your question. Pull a single card or try a guided tarot spread to better understand the issue at hand so you can move forward with peace and compassion.
