What is your sign? 

Today we’re talking about astrology and how essential oils can be used to amplify the strengths of your Astro-personality. 

What is Astrology? 

According to Cafe Astrology, “Astrology is, put simply, the study of the correlation between the astronomical positions of the planets and events on earth. Astrologers believe that the positions of the Sun, Moon, and planets at the time of a person’s birth have a direct influence on that person’s character. These positions are thought to affect a person’s destiny, although many Astrologers feel that free will plays a large role in any individual’s life.”

Your sun is the most well-known sign and usually the one you answer when asked “So, what’s your sign?” 

While your sun sign says a lot about you, there’s more to your zodiac than the placement of the sun at the time of your birth. If you know your birth date, time, and location, you can determine further aspects of your chart

New York Times best-selling author of “You Were Born for This”, Chani Nicholas breaks it down: 

🌞  Your sun sign is your life's purpose
🌙  Your moon sign represents your physical and emotional needs
🚀  Your ascendant sign is your motivation for life

How Do Essential Oils Play a Role?

Essential oils deliver the healing properties of herbs and plants. Using the right essential oil for your sign helps you to draw out the positive aspects of your personality, further grounding you into your true essence, through the power of scent. 

If you want a quick read, check out your elemental sign (earth, air, fire, water) for scents that suit all signs for that element. For a deeper dive, head to your sun sign. And for a deep, deep dive, check out your sun, moon, and rising signs to see which scents you connect with.

Zodiac Signs by Month 

Aries (fire sign, March 21 to April 19) is the first sign and therefore a natural-born leader. If you find yourself needing to reconnect to your passion and confidence,  you would benefit from Focus Blend, a combination of peppermint, lemon, lavender, and bergamot to build confidence and enhance mood. 

Taurus (earth sign, April 20 to May 20) as a fixed earth sign Taurus needs a connection with Mother Earth to feel grounded. That can look like putting feet or hands in the earth or using a scent like Palo Santo to deepen your connection. 

Gemini (air sign, May 21 to June 20) folks are expressive, quick-witted, and sometimes indecisive. Balance Blend (eucalyptus, lemon, sandalwood, and cedar) can help them come back into balance when indecision takes over.

Cancer (water sign, June 21 to July 22) is known to be a deeply connected and emotional sign. Watery to the max, the scent of Eucalyptus is calming and invigorating to this sign. 

Leo (fire sign, July 23 to August 22) is pure energetic fire. When you think of passion, exuberance, and theatrics, a Leo comes to mind. Sage with its fresh and powerful scent gives off a feeling of pure energy, just like a Leo. 

Virgo (earth sign, August 23 to September 22) is full of well-thought-out advice. If you’re looking for practical guidance, talk to your nearest Virgo. Warm, woodsy, and sweet Sandalwood is a practical choice for Virgos to connect to universal truth.

Libra (air sign, September 23 to October 22) symbol is the scales of justice. They are fair-minded and enjoy harmony. The scent of Orange calls in the same refreshing feeling and deep exhale as seeing justice prevail. 

Scorpio (water sign, October 23 to November 21) is a passionate and assertive sign. Firm believers in the truth, Lavender with its fresh, floral, and calm aroma can support this sign when they’re deep in the throes of getting to the bottom of something. 

Sagittarius (fire sign, November 22 to December 21) are travelers. As an avid outdoor lover, there is nothing better than the fresh scent of Cedar for this sign. 

Capricorn (earth sign, December 22 to January 19) is the responsible one who seems like they know it all (and maybe they do?!?). Focus Blend supports this sign to get into the zone and focus on climbing whatever their next mountain is. 

Aquarius (air sign, January 20 to February 18) is never to be limited. They are deeply intellectual and ready to fight for what’s right. Palo Santo can support this sign’s connection as they engage in prayer or meditation, getting clear on the next, right step forward for humanity. 

Pisces (water sign, February 19 to March 20) is the final sign of the zodiac. They are highly intuitive, spiritual, and creative. Ylang Ylang with its sweet, romantic aroma, is supportive of this sign’s connected nature.
