Happy Libra season! If you follow astrology like we do on the Viv team, you may be interested in knowing how PMS may affect you according to your zodiac sign! Below we’ve found some ways to cope with your PMS symptoms according to your sign.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
Aries, your fiery passion is a beautiful gift, but during your period, you may not take time to rest when you need it. Due to your enthusiasm for life and your getting sh*t done mindset, you may feel like you don’t even have time to think about your period at all. If that’s the case, your period can be a reminder to pause and reflect. If you like to keep busy try to channel your energy into something that will rejuvenate you like working out or going out with friends.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Taurus is often known for their love of food and as a Taurus, I can personally vouch when PMSing this characteristic applies! During your period you may feel more inclined to relax, stay in, and eat your favorite foods. Since Taurus is a sensual and indulgent sign, plan a date night for yourself. Play your favorite music, take a nice bath or shower, and cook or order a delicious meal. You deserve to be pampered by yourself!
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Symbolized by the twin sign, Geminis may often feel like they’re being pulled in two different directions. Known for their charisma and expressive air qualities, Geminis are also sensitive signs. Your period may inspire your mood swings to intensify, so take time to slow down and notice your emotions. If you feel unbalanced, try a grounding meditation or guided walking meditation to calm your nerves.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
As a water sign, you have high emotions and a strong sense of intuition. In the days before your period, you may feel it in your body before it begins. During your period, do something to nurture yourself. As a natural caregiver, don’t forget to love and care for your wellbeing! Spend some time putting your thoughts down in a journal, doodling, or taking a hot bath.
Leo (July 23- August 22)
Leo, the lion, is often the star of the show! Leos are creative, theatrical, and protective. During your period, you may feel as though it hits you extra hard, and you get lost in the feeling zone. Take some time soak up the sun and rejuvenate in the light. This may also be a wonderful time for you to channel your energy into creative endeavors.
Virgo (August 23- September 22)
Characterized as both practical and analytical, Virgos also have a strong creative side. You are also easily stressed out by things you can’t control, and periods can be so unpredictable and frustrating! Although it may be hard, try to ride the wave of your cycle and let go of your expectations. Your patience may be tested at this time, but focus on something you can physically do with your hands or body. Try putting on your favorite music and having a dance party, cooking, or making some art!
Libra (September 23- October 22)
Represented by the balancing scales, Libras, are often balanced and harmonious. As a social butterfly and people pleaser, remember to prioritize yourself during this time. Your indecisive nature may also intensify, and if this resonates, just choose whatever makes YOU feel the best. Spend some time with people you love, so they can remind you of just how special you are. Spending time with others will help you forget all about your bleeding V.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Passionate and stubborn are two defining qualities of a Scorpio! You have so much energy and determination that your period may open space for new ideas and endeavors. You are also an emotional sign, so just allow your emotions to flow freely and you may be surprised by what you create.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
As a Sagittarius, you have an adventurous spirit and are always looking for something to explore. You are often looking for ways to self-improve, but take this time to focus on something outside of yourself. Go on an adventure that will make you forget all about your PMS symptoms.
Capricorn (December 22- January 19)
Hardworking Capricorn! You are independent, tenacious, and responsible. Your emotions may be begging to surface during your period, and if that’s the case, let them! Even though you are determined, it is okay to relish in your emotions, as well. Let go of your self-criticism by writing a love letter to yourself.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
Aquarius, you are so imaginative and always see the good in others! You are driven and very determined to explore your passions. Despite this, you can also become lost in an idealistic state due to your creative nature. During your period you may want to spend some alone time and watch a new movie or documentary. Also, don’t forget to reach out to someone that makes you loved and grounded to have a chill hang with them.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
Dreamy and romantic, Pisces is often teetering between reality and fantasy. As a water sign, you are characterized by your vibrant emotional spectrum and empathy. Your naturally intuitive abilities may feel charged during this time, so explore them by meditating and moving your body to connect with your inner self.
