Water is the most sensitive and psychic element in the zodiac. People with a lot of water in their chart need plenty of time away from others to gather their thoughts and
You might really resonate with your sun sign and if you do, then this article will offer you a whole bunch of (hopefully) effective and tantalizing self-care ideas to try out.
Plenty of time alone to recharge and process is needed for this sensitive and psychic star sign. In fact, anyone with a lot of water in their natal chart may benefit from the self-care suggestions below.
Those who have a lot of eight house energy in their natal chart, such as their moon or rising sign in Scorpio then you will probably also find this guide useful.
Considering this is 2021, and we’re still on the road to recovery, I’ll list some free and low-cost ideas as well as some more expensive self-care activities.
Activities within the home
Order flowers for yourself
And maybe chocolates, too.
Receiving flowers can be rather thrilling.
The Geranium flower is the birth flower for this sign, however, I find that deep red roses inspire and seduce Scorpios much more effectively.
Receiving flowers and then arranging them in a lovely vase can be a healing and calming experience — as well as admiring their beauty and scent for days on end.
Create a playlist
A soft, soothing playlist to listen to while folding clothes, tidying up, writing in a journal, or having a bath is just divine.
You can create totally free playlists online on places like YouTube and Spotify.
Sleeping with relaxing on has also been proven to be beneficial as a study published on nature.com determined.
Check out music that’s recorded in certain high vibrational frequencies such as 528Hz (the frequency of love) for extra peace and comfort.
Buy a journal
And actually write in it!
There are so many stunning journal designs to pick from too. Just the process of shopping for one can itself be soothing — and fun!
It should be a delight to hold and it’ll probably look gorgeous on your desk.
Disconnect from social media
Stop checking social media. The unrealistic standards that a lot of people hold themselves to these days can be exhausting for many sensitive people to keep up with. Being constantly bombarded with images of perfection can be damaging to mental health.
Taking a break from looking at the perfect lives of others online brings on a reality check; most people don’t have perfect lives or look nearly as stunning as they do in their Insta posts, which can be a relief to realize.
Even if you don’t follow influencers online, just taking a break from looking at your friends’ posts can help you to wind down and relax.
Connect with some new crystals
There are some crystals that work particularly well with Scorpios; Selenite is great to have around to clear the air of heavy vibrations and rose quartz can then condition the space by adding a loving vibration.
If you don’t have any crystals, they are a joy to work with, and honestly, buying new crystals can be really exciting. Especially when you bought them online and you aren’t exactly sure what they’ll look like.
Create a comforting and magickal space
In a spare room or your own bedroom, create a safe, still, and comfortable space that has a magical touch to it.
Scorpio loves dark and rich colors so consider using touches of burgundy, merlot, black, and mauve around the room.
Light a candle, switch on a stars projector and snuggle down to watch a movie or tarot with a perfect latte or herbal tea. Burn some incense and do something like:
- read rune stones
Try full moon manifesting
It’s said that a full moon is the beginning of a new cycle and it’s the perfect time to start something new and have the Heavens behind you, giving you that extra boost.
During the next full moon, try visualizing something you would really like to experience or own as if it’s already yours.
Create a beautiful bathing experience
Don’t just turn the tap on and get in! Try to take some time to set up a gorgeous bathing experience in your own home.
- Make sure the temperature of the water is just right.
- Add a gorgeous bath bomb to the water and fully dissolve it.
- Light some natural candles and place them carefully around the tub; vanilla-scented rapeseed candles are particularly divine.
Watch the water draining and envisage all the negative energy that may have been attached to you flow down the drain and feel energetically cleansed.
It may seem ridiculously obvious to suggest taking a bath as it’s what so many of us do to relax at the end of each day.
Learn something new
Scorpio is a very intellectual sign and loves to learn. so why not consider treating yourself to a course.
Lots of people have something that they’ve been meaning to learn for years! For me, it’s the Italian language and swimming (yep, sadly I can’t swim and I’m a thirty-something!).
There are lots of courses that can be undertaken at home on websites like Udemy but there are also lots of courses that can be done in group settings, such as learning how to swim or climb which can also open doors to meeting new people and making new friends.
If you’d like to formally study something, Colleges and Universities such as Oxford University also have home study programs!
Activities outside the home
Treat yourself to an intense or mystical experience
This sign is sensitive yet loves intense experiences. Depending on what the rest of your natal chart looks like,
Visiting a cavernous cave, booking tickets to Halloween festival or perhaps travelling to Salem as a Birthday gift to yourself.
Book a reading with a good psychic or medium.
Go on a boat trip
Connect with your element; water. You can rent a boat or have a
Fishing is unbelievably relaxing (not for the fish). Failing that, just enjoying watching the water and
Get a massage
Water dominant people need to connect to others. Getting a massage from your partner or a masseuse is a really great way to feel human tough and feel connected to humanity.
If you’re paying for this service then it can be expensive and probably isn’t feasible for most people to
Water signs and people with a lot of water placements in their natal charts will always need more self-care and quality time alone because they’re more sensitive than most.
They need time to collect their thoughts and unload any heavy emotions of their own or that they picked up when interacting with others.
Without self-care and time to themselves, they can feel overwhelmed quite quickly and that can impact their physical health as well as their mental well-being.
