An easy technique for incorporating astrology into our daily self-care routine is determining which essential oils to use for the day based on the sign the moon is in. The moon gives us the general "flavor" of the day. Essential oils help us balance and attune our energy with the moon so that we can think clearly, communicate effectively, enhance our creativity, and more!
Here are some ideas for balancing the elements in astrology!
If the moon is in a fire sign (Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius):
Fire signs are known for flash and pizazz! They represent our drive, courage, and passion! Peppermint essential oil is both energizing and cooling. It helps balance and make right use of fiery energy!
If the moon is in an earth sign (Taurus, Virgo, or Capricorn):
Earth signs are grounded, stable, and steady. They are the practical, worldly part of us that creates and sustains resources such as finances and relationships. Sometimes, earth signs get a bit too comfortable where they are at and do well with a gentle nudge forward. Lemon essential oil really does the trick! It is motivating and gives a positive mood boost any time of the day, without overwhelming the no-nonsense earth signs.
If the moon is in an air sign (Gemini, Libra, or Aquarius):
Air signs represent our intellect, intelligence, and rational thinking. There is such a thing as too much thinking, however. Air signs are also the part of us that is prone to worry and anxiety! Lavender essential oil soothes tension, calms busy minds, and can even help us sleep! This is all very helpful when our thoughts are overwhelming.
And if the moon is in a water sign (Cancer, Scorpio, or Pisces):
Last but not least come the water signs. Water signs are our intuition, sensitivity, and powers of perception. When the moon is in the water signs, we may notice feeling more emotional than usual. Sometimes, we may even feel down or lost in a flood of feelings. Wild Orange essential oil energizes and uplifts our mood so we can more readily enjoy the deeply-feeling gift of the water signs.
