The keys to wellness are written in the stars. In The Complete Guide to Astrological Self-Care, astrologer Stephanie Gailing shares a modern-day approach to the ancient healing art of medical astrology.
Astrology is a stellar language that allows us to understand the nuances of who we are and how to live our life with more insight and awareness. And while we may look to our zodiac signs to help us navigate our relationships, career, finances, and family matters, did you know that astrology can also play quite a pivotal role in helping us optimize our vitality and well-being?
From passionate Aries to sensitive Pisces, and all the signs in between, each astrological profile is associated with a unique temperament and different needs when it comes to nurturing body, mind, and spirit. Knowing these can help you personalize your self-care regimen by incorporating natural remedies and wellness practices more aligned with your signs.
Divided into twelve chapters, one for each zodiac sign, The Complete Guide to Astrological Self-Care includes an array of holistic lifestyle approaches that will help you curate an astrologically aligned self-care regimen. For each sign you’ll find dozens of recommendations in categories including:
