Living can be a stressful affair and our home is the only safe-haven that helps us unwind and recharge our batteries, every day.
But sometimes it fails to give us peace and may feel as chaotic as the world outside. There are, however, ways to make it the safe space that inspires a feeling of Zen in you. And interestingly, Zodiac signs, can give us an insight into what each one of us likes and is drawn to.
Have a look at what your zodiac sign says about what can help you feel Zen in your home!
Aquarius (January 20 to February 18)
It isn’t like you to follow the traditional ways of doing things and you can fulfill your need to be unique and unconventional with a statement piece – whether it’s a furniture piece or an artifact. When your home lets your individuality shine through, you’ll feel at peace!
Pisces (February 19 to March 20)
Like fish, you’re drawn to water elements to find tranquility and relaxation. While you can’t head to the beach every day, you can incorporate those concepts in your home décor, in the form of décor elements in oceanic hues or a small table-top fountain in your living room. These small reminders will help you find the Zen your soul seeks.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)
Too much stuff lying around can make you feel trapped and you are someone who doesn’t like feeling that way. You can find your Zen at home by arranging the furniture and other things in your home in such a way that it gives you the most amount of space. Just space things out and arrange things the way they are in an open-room concept and you’ll feel lighter and at peace.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)
You’re drawn to beauty and the way things look and smell is what moves you. Tie your space together with accent pillows or a rug in rich greens or browns, and use incense or essential oils in your home and you should definitely find your Zen!
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)
You love your electronic devices, although unplugging from them might be the answer to finding peace. While you can’t get rid of your gadgets, at least conceal them (along with the wiring) so that you feel disconnected and peaceful!
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)
You’re a sentimentalist and tend to cling to things. Zen focuses on simplicity, but not at the cost of what’s important to you. Display in your décor only the most important things like photos of family or works of art given by the closest of friends, and you will find your home giving you a sense of peace.
Leo (July 23 to August 22)
You need your space to feel open and bright, but don’t get caught up in bright lights and over-the-top decorations. Embrace natural and soft lighting whenever you can, to create a space that helps you feel calm and relaxed.
Virgo (August 23 to September 22)
You are someone who will find peace when you feel that you have control over your environment. So, go ahead, arrange your furniture in an orderly and simple layout, one that is functional as well as pleasing to the eye, and you’ll feel happy, and at peace!
Libra (September 23 to October 22)
To feel at peace at home, create an environment that has life and a sense of balance woven right into it – and plants can help you do just that. Hang them by the window, keep them on shelves or place a large potted one in your living space, whatever form you use them in, they won’t just lift your spirits up and keep you healthier, but also beautify your space and keep you connected to nature.
Scorpio (October 23 to November 21)
While you’re straight-forward, you don’t like to lay out everything about you, out in the open. You feel Zen in an environment where things have a certain air of mystery about them and are far from ordinary – whether it’s a strange piece of art or an out-of-the-ordinary sitting option that truly stands out.
Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21)
You are someone who tends to collect things around you that you think are important and useful. And sometimes, the space around you can get, well, rather messy. Removing the clutter around you can bring you the peace of mind you don’t realize you are missing!
Capricorn (December 22 to January 19)
You are someone who hardly needs anything fancy and are happy so long as the essentials are in place. Simple, multi-functional furniture will work well for you with minimum to no accessories that have no functional value. This helps you focus on things that matter to you, and feel Zen, right at home.
