Astrology and aromatherapy are like extended family members.
They come together flawlessly if you unite them intentionally to achieve goals, balance and positive energy into your life.
This month’s post is all about 2019 and the essential oils you may find yourself drawn to each month. I have gone a little further by correlating each oil with an astrological sign.
Essential Oils for Everyday Living: Astrology and Aromatherapy for 2019:
Sandalwood is a fabulous essential oil to end and begin the year with and it pairs perfectly with Aquarius. Sandalwood has been known to help bring your intentions to fruition; so, while you’re casting your vision for 2019, diffuse or apply some Sandalwood to provide clarity.
Rose is my essential oil choice for the month of February and for the water sign Pieces. There are some obvious reasons: Known as the sacred flower to Venus and most Goddesses; rose essential oil confers peace, stimulates sexual desires, enhances beauty, and attracts lovers. I recommend a few drops behind the ear or directly on the heart.
Marjoram is my choice for the month of March and for the Aires. Marjoram has often been used to support protection, and by those seeking respite from difficult times. To the ancient Greeks and Romans, it symbolized happiness. Diffusing marjoram with a few drops of lavender is a perfect way to end a long day.
Ylang Ylang is the perfect essential oil for spring and the sign of Taurus. This lush floral oil has a history wrapped in sex and purification. Ylang Ylang petals are strewn across beds of the newlyweds to bless the couples new beginning. Create a mist by adding a few drops of Ylang Ylang and a drop or two of Rose; spray linens and sleepwear.
Neroli oil is the perfect choice for the month of May and for my Gemini friends. Neroli is an uplifting essential oil that opens the heart chakra and awakens sensuality. Purchase a car diffuser and on those long commutes add a few drops of Neroli.
Juniper is a fabulous oil for the month of June and the astrological sign if Cancer. Juniper with its grounding benefits it readies us for the transition into summer. I prefer to diffuse Juniper during the day or while in the car.
Leo’s and Lemon are an excellent combination. Lemon balances the chakras and increasing awareness. Lemon essential oil is a perfect blend to diffuse while you practice your daily mediation. It opens the mind and is a spiritual cleanser of sorts. I prefer to diffuse Lemon in the morning while I journal or read my daily affirmations.
Thyme is an excellent choice for the month of August and Virgo’s. It has been used for centuries and its ability to invoke courage made it popular to use before men headed off to battle. This is a wonderful oil to get us ready for the end of summer.
Bergamot is the perfect essential oil choice for September and Libra’s. Bergamot is another for oil for this month of transition giving its user inner confidence and courage. I love to add bergamot to my lotions and shampoos, just a few drops will do the trick.
During this month of magic and mystery, the Scorpio can find comfort in Patchouli essential oil. Patchouli is a scared oil and reminds us of our purpose. Diffusing this oil while practicing yoga or mediating connects us to the earth while filling us with gratitude.
Sage is the perfect essential oil for November and the Sagittarian. The perfect way to use sage is to diffuse it. Sage helps to balance mood and boost energy. You can also blend sage with other oils like bergamot, lemongrass, and clary, all of which will bring the Sagittarian back to their center.
As the year ends Capricorns warm and caring personality joins well with Cedarwood. Cedarwood brings its user into balance and harmony. It relaxes and gives peace of mind. I recommend diffusing it while you meditate to bring energy back into the body. As you breathe in this magical oil it will allow your body to release toxic emotions.
I encourage you to build your very own annual essential oil kit. Start with your own Astrological sign then with an open heart and mind choose the oils you feel drawn to each month.
