We look to the stars to help understand our sleep.
Astrology is a window to understand our personality, feelings and sleep. The more we understand the characteristics of our sleep, the better we can find the right tools to improve it. According to your Zodiac sign, we’ve summarized your sleep personality in one sentence and included actionable tips to help optimize sleep.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Finding a truly individualistic wind down in a sleepcare routine will aid Aries to relax their fiery daytime energy.
Tip: Take a warm bath to bring your energy to a restful state.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Taurus experiences optimal sleep when surrounded by a serene atmosphere built on earthy aromas and sounds.
Tip: Use a diffuser at night with a natural scent such as lavender or pine.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
The mind of a Gemini is in a constant race, therefore mindful breathing exercises calm the personal pursuits and prepares the body for restful sleep.
Tip: Try a grounding meditation when you go to bed and wake up each morning. Ground your energy into the earth. Try this one from Mindful.org.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Relationships and personal energies weigh heavy on a Cancers’ heart, therefore do not fall asleep experiencing anger or anxiety.
Tip: Cancers are affected by their needs. Comfort needs to be cultivated in their sleep space, and this can start with sheets. Nollapelli sheets address all your needs at night.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Naps no longer than 30 minutes keep Leo the life and the leaders of the party.
Tip: Can’t cat nap? Our dear friend, Leslie McAllister, told us “legs up the wall recharges the heart.” Try this for a quick refresh.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Virgo sleep thrives under an intentional, tidy sleepcare regime that is practiced to perfection.
Tip: Make your bed every morning so that your space is tidy for when you return to sleep. One step further, about 15 minutes for bed, provide your own turndown service. Organize your bed to invite sleep.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
A quiet, balanced environment (in the physical world and in the mind) for sleep nurtures a Libra’s greatest trait, imagination and dreams.
Tip: Bring a crystal, such as selenite or angelite, to balance your sleep space.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Cleansed air help Scorpio prevent obsessive thoughts from disrupting sleep.
Tip: Scorpio is a water sign often mistaken for a fire sign. Use a humidifier with a diffuser. Fill with a quality, heavy scent such as vanilla or musk.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
By wandering freely outside during the day, Sagittarius can reach peace of mind and quality sleep at night.
Tip: Turn off the world at night. Use ear plugs or a sleep mask.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Consistent wake and sleep times keep Capricorns from oversleeping (or under-sleeping) and allow life to come into full focus.
Tips: Use automatic reminders, such as a timer on your phone signaling when to start your nighttime routine or automatic dimming lights, to keep you on a consistent sleep and wake schedule.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Aquarius should prioritize their needs at night, no one else’s.
Tips: Cut out human interaction through screens from your nighttime routine. Do not bring an electronic device into your sleep space.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Sleep is free play for the creative and imaginative mind of Pisces.
Tip: Set an intention for your imagination by pulling an Oracle card or writing down your intention before sleep to spark prolific dreams.
