How to Manage Your Period (Based on your Zodiac Sign)
Written by Cinestie Olson
Learning about your zodiac sign can be a fun way to see how you connect to astrology. Astrology can tell us about the way we communicate, handle conflicts, and how we live. Though there is no scientific truth behind the traits of each zodiac sign, it’s still fun to see how relatable and accurate it is! Continue reading to find out how to best manage your period based on your zodiac sign.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19): Your life is described as independent, disciplined, and hardworking. You dedicate your time to your passions, work, and relationships. Your period doesn't slow you down from your busy days. However, you could try to deepen your relationships while on your period by sharing with friends and family your experiences as a menstruator!
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18): Often known as an independent, deep-thinking fashionista; you like to have true “me time” during your period! You’ll spend your cycle solo, pick your period products based on aesthetics, and turn heads with your fits by wearing comfortable loungewear. Enjoy going down a YouTube loophole of insightful videos and documentaries to satisfy your deep thinking qualities while staying comfy with a heating pad in bed!
Pisces (February 19 - March 20): As a water sign, you are seen as in tune with your emotions and feelings. Pisces are also affectionate and artistic! Take this time to completely indulge in yourself and your creative abilities. Let yourself paint (period blood is a great medium!), and maybe even some improv dancing to express your emotions during your cycle!
Aries (March 21 - April 19): As a fire sign, Aries are designed to be dynamic and energetic. Though you may have cramping or fatigue, you keep up with and enjoy a busy schedule! You tend to manage your period by releasing some of your energy into an exercise that also helps relieve your period cramps!
Taurus (April 20 - May 20): Taurus are known for their sensuality, strength, and desire for comfort. Use this time to connect your body and period. Do some strength yoga and breath-work to help with those period cramps, or indulge in self-pleasure through orgasming (great for reducing period pains as well)!
Gemini (May 21 - June 20): Gemini’s are known as the social butterflies of the Zodiacs! If your feeling up for it, have a movie night with friends enjoying your favorite cravings. However, don’t forget to let yourself have a day of rest and reset (yes, you can still FaceTime your friends).
Cancer (June 21 - July 22): Cancers are known to be sensitive and nurturing. The way you nurture others is the way you should nurture yourself during your cycle. Express gratitude for your wins (even if they’re small), create a cozy space, and listen to your favorite playlist!
Leo (July 23 - August 22): Leos are prideful, confident, and not afraid to let people know they're on their period! You’ll express the joys and pains of your cycle to anyone with open ears. During your period, empower yourself and your confidence! You can do this by taking yourself on a date to a pole dancing class, or an impromptu photoshoot highlighting the realities of periods!
Virgo (August 23 - September 22): Virgos are known to be loyal and analytical. Sometimes, your period comes at inconvenient times. Instead of trying to control your PMS symptoms or other period pains, embrace it! If one day you feel like laying in bed with your heating pad, do it! If you feel better and want to get work done, do it! Let your body take control during your cycle.
Libra (September 23 - October 22): Libras are one of the most generous signs! You can be extroverted, friendly, and enjoy the presence of others! During your period, go to a group yoga class to help relieve cramps or a cat cafe to release some endorphins.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21): Scorpios are incredibly passionate and dedicated. Here’s a reminder that rest IS productive! Treat yourself to a night at home, in cozy PJs, after a warm candle-lit bath to help with those cramps. We promise you’ll get back to it when you’re done!
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21): Sagittarius are adventurous and ambitious. Keep letting yourself laugh and enjoy your daily activities! Your period may be a good time to try something new, such as a fitness class to help relieve period cramps, making art with your period blood, or attending a poetry class to let your emotions flow!
