Morning routine: shower, coffee, horoscope. This has been my before-work regimen for a few months now, and nothing has seemed to kick off each day better than reading what the stars have in store for me. Whether or not you believe in astrology, it is still incredibly fascinating to read what traits you can attribute to your zodiac sign. This is exactly why I paired my favorite poetry collections with each star sign.
aries – wild embers by nikita gill | courageous, confident, determined
Recently I listened to Nikita Gill’s IGTV videos and felt a renewed sense of confidence. Her words, for me, are the epitome of courageousness. Perfect for fire signs, like Aries.
taurus – the chaos of longing by k.y. robinson | patient, devoted, reliable
The first time I read The Chaos of Longing, I felt an ache in my chest. It is so beautiful and emotional. It has become a favorite that I go back to over and over again. This is why it is perfect for the devoted and reliable Taurus.
gemini – soft in the middle by shelby eileen | gentle, affectionate, indecisive
Soft in the Middle is such a beautiful book about growth and self-love. The body positive movement is one that is close to my heart, and I love the gentle way that Shelby Eileen writes about learning to love yourself. Affectionate and expressive Geminis will love this book.
cancer – pillow thoughts by courtney peppernell | highly imaginative, loyal, emotional
Pillow Thoughts by Courtney Peppernell is a new favorite of mine. I have only owned this book for just over a month, but I have already read it three times. Each time I read it, I become invested in ways that I haven’t before. It is deeply emotional and everything that water sign Cancer needs!
