Sorry, this doesn't mean daily massages and manicures (but you know what? Go ahead and schedule a couple of those anyway). In 2020 it does mean recognizing the difference between laziness and active recovery. If you haven't guessed already, you need to engage in active recovery in this coming year. That means that, if you're ordinarily super active, take a little more downtime to rest and recover. If you're a bit of a couch potato, you should still get a little more activity in, but don't punish yourself about it. No matter where you fall on the spectrum, 2020 is the year to consider doing more with yoga and meditation. Those are the perfect active recovery activities for you, Virgo.
So what's the best way to start this program off? With a visit to the doctor, of course. January is the perfect time to get yourself checked out if you haven't been in a while. And if you have, take a personal inventory of your health: see how your feeling, where you'd like your body to be, and what you'd like to be doing. Between all this information gathering, make a plan for 2020 for yourself for taking care of yourself this year. That means working the parts that need working interspersed with a good amount of self-care. You're going to be coming back to this plan repeated throughout 2020, following it and modifying where need be.
Even with all of this maintenance work you'll need to do, Virgo, your health might throw you a couple of curveballs here and there. Sometime in the spring, you might be slowed down a bit. This could be on the level of a lingering cold or something that's going to impact your day to day life a bit more than that. Don't worry too much about it. What you should do is listen to any message your body is trying to tell you. It could mean it's time to slow down a little, or eat better, or just get yourself to a doctor on a more regular basis. No matter what, listen and don't ignore the little stuff. This doesn't mean it's time to become a raging hypochondriac. But do become more thoughtful about you and your body.
Summer 2020 is your time to thrive and you should make the most of that opportunity. You should be at your peak so it's a great time to push yourself. This doesn't mean entering a marathon after laying on a couch all winter. But get yourself outside and active, even if it's just for walking around your neighborhood. Get yourself to the beach (sunscreen, Virgo!) and stroll on the sand. This falls under the category of active recovery as well. More than anything, just enjoy your health! Whatever state you're in, be thankful that you have the life you do. Stretch the limbs you can, enjoy the senses you have. Summertime (particularly around July) is the time to be thankful for your body.
If it sounds like this 2020 whole year is about making sure you stay healthy, you'd be correct Virgo. Saturn is shining on you prominently and wants to make sure you're taking care of yourself. The stars want to bless you with good health and freedom from ailments, but they know that you'll have to do the heavy lifting to make sure that those things happen. Listen to them and follow their guidance to be the strongest and healthiest person you can be. And don't forget to schedule those massages and manicures.
