Capricorn season is officially upon us and will be here until January 19. The energy of Capricorn tends to bring out a desire for grounding and routine, especially as we move past the holidays. Making time for self-care is essential for creating a sense of calm and balance so you can begin the new year feeling your best.
Exactly what self-care looks like will be different for everyone and even if astrology isn’t your thing, it can be helpful to have these practices to turn to whenever you’re feeling a bit run down. If you’re looking for ideas, here are a few of our favorite routines and rituals.
Connect With the Earth
Capricorn is an Earth sign, so one of the best ways to tap into its energy is by spending time in nature. Go hiking or take a walk at a park near you, or, if it’s too cold, consider bringing the Earth inside with some houseplants.
Take some time to think about any goals or resolutions that you’d like to work toward in the new year. You can also reflect on what worked for you over the past year vs. what you’re ready to leave behind. Write a stream-of-consciousness style or make lists if you prefer more structure.
This is one you can definitely benefit from year-round, but we especially love it as a way to center ourselves during times of transition such as returning to “regular life” after the holidays. This Capricorn Sound Bath by Healing Vibrations makes for great meditation music.
