You’re a sensitive soul, Cancer, whose go-to is to retreat when things become overwhelming. When your emotions become too much to bear, consider journaling your feelings; it’ll allow you to both process and understand them better.
You love being around people, Leo, but recharging your batteries will soothe and improve your energy in beautiful ways. Consider embarking upon a solo retreat, or even trying vipassana, a Buddhist form of meditation. (And, yes, that means no phones.)
Sometimes you’re just too hard on yourself, Virgo, and you forget that you need a little help and soothing too. While reiki healing might be a little “out there” for your analytical mind, you’ll be surprised at how much your energy will refine and recalibrate as a result.
You’re all about keeping things in balance and harmony, Libra, which is why you should Marie Kondo your life. Of course, you don’t have to tackle everything at once. Tidy up and organize one area of your house, room, or life, one step at a time.

You’re as type-A as they come, Capricorn, so you rarely take the time to relax and chill out. Which is why yoga might be your lifesaver. You’re still getting a workout in, but you’re also focusing on your breath and being in the present moment, quieting your busy mind.
You’re an independent free spirit, Aquarius, who likes to try the latest “out there” craze. Flotation therapy might be your jam to help you leave your worries behind.
