Every babe out there–especially you, you saucy thing–needs a great mantra.
Let's kick off this week with mantras to give you some serious power and perspective for the next seven days. Peep your sun and rising signs for some inspo.
Aries – Are you being hot-headed about something, Aries? Don't, even though you're usually right. ;) This is for you: "I want the highest good for all."
Taurus – Feelin' fatigued? Take a deep breath, unplug, zone out, ignore texts for an hour (seriously, it's fine). Repeat after me: "I am a quiet forest in a den of noise."
Gemini – Did you know I think you're delightful? Well, it's true. And I know you're working real hard lately. Write this down, say it aloud in front of a mirror: "I am the creator of my own magic."
Cancer – Hi, hello little crab. What are you toiling away on? Don't forget to come up for air, even if you're doing some *major* self-work. Keep this token in mind: "Life isn't all serious business."
Leo – Happy Leo season, darling Lion, and while you pride on being a hep cat in the world, you can't control every single thang. So this week, let's keep it classic and simple: "I accept the things I cannot change."
Virgo – Hello queenly water bearers! We hope you're getting some action in the sea or poolside lounging in. That being said: "I am a vast ocean waiting to be explored."
Libra – Happy Monday, didn't you know you already arrived? Now, it's time to show up. Here is your personal mantra: "Ask the question, worry about the answer later."
Scorpio – Hello, darkling. Are you enjoying the shadows? I thought so. I'm serving you this: "I am a delta of light."
Sagittarius – Sweet sag, you've got a whole lotta biz-ness going on this week. And that means, lots to mull over. Keep this in mind: "Thinking is the key to my personal success."
Capricorn – Hi, you. I've been watching you a lot – you like to grab life by the horns, yes? But, you can't do everything all by your sweet self. My darling sea-goat, take heed: "I grow stronger with the support and intuition of myself and others."
Aquarius – Howdy partner, how's it going? You have twosomes on the brain, and I can't blame you. ;) Whether it's love, professional, platonic, or something else, it's a union for sure. Here's your part: "I bring serenity wherever I go."
Pisces – How's the swim going, dear Pisces? The water is nice this time of year. It feels good, but stay in tune with yourself or you'll get lost. Don't lose yourself or your sacredness: "My body is a beacon of health and peace."
