From crystals to birth charts, there has been growing interest and attention towards this realm of astrology and self-reflection. Horoscopes are astrological charts based on an individual’s birth date and time. Zodiac signs are meant to reflect how that individual presents themselves to others as well as their overall being and personality. We have been loving the weekly horoscope reads from Cosmopolitan, giving different predictions on how your week will go or your love life for the month. Whether or not you believe in astrology, it’s all in good fun! We’ve decided to put our take on zodiac signs, matching each respective one to a candle aroma.
ARIES (March 20 - April 19)
Aries is a fire element sign, and are characterized by their confidence, courageousness, honesty, and passion. They are constantly looking for speed and competition. Aries typically dislike inactivity and delays to plans. To match this fiery, bold energy of a sign, we recommend our Mandarin + Resins, with notes of pink pepper and mandarin, for an energizing blend. The bright iridescent clay vessel of this candle is fitting for any Aries.
TAURUS (April 19 - May 20)
Taurus is an earth element sign characterized by being well-grounded, reliable, and the need to be surrounded by love. Tauruses generally dislike sudden changes or any complications. To match this grounding energy, we recommend our Coastal Redwood + Mandarin, reminding us of the open nature and the forest. Since Taurus love being on their two feet, they’ll appreciate aromas that are earthy and floral.
GEMINI (May 20 - June 21)
Gemini, an air element sign characterized by being charismatic and being highly intelligent. They are perceptive, and typically very humorous, and can get along well with anyone new.
