When I woke up today, an idea came to my head. What if your zodiac sign determines the way you should work out? The world wide web is filled with all kinds of suggestions based on your zodiac sign, from the way you should dress to the right hairstyle. I’m sure the universe also knows all about the best workout for your zodiac sign.
Astrology has experienced such a crazy boom in the last years, especially in the wellness world. And totally understandable. Somehow reading about your sun and moon sign and how it all ties together, is very intriguing. While diving into your daily or even monthly horoscope can offer you a fun little insight into what’s to come, remember to not take it too seriously.
First of all, our birth charts are so individual that a universal horoscope for your zodiac sign can never do it justice. And second, the best guide in your life will always be you.
Something I experienced first hand. No matter how many opinions I followed, they never lead me anywhere good. That is, until I finally started to listen to my intuition and what felt right to me.
Yes, I’m certain that the planets have some kind of influence on us and our life on earth. Everything is here for a reason and connected after all. But always ask yourself first what resonates with you and dismiss the rest.
With that said, I thought it might be fun to take the common character traits of each zodiac sign and see which workout style would fit best.
