It’s spring! The air is warmer, tiny buds are beginning to unfurl on bare tree branches, green shoots are poking up through the cold earth, and the world is filled with a fresh sense of renewal. It’s no wonder that, as the landscape changes around us, becoming more vibrant, lush and beautiful after the monochromatic tones of winter, we’re filled with a corresponding urge to update our living spaces. Spring cleaning is universal: It’s all about clearing the clutter from our homes and doing a top-to-bottom deep-clean, scouring all the nooks and crannies we’ve overlooked all winter long. And there is a definite link between our physical surroundings and our inner emotions; setting our homes to rights makes us feel more focused, confident and optimistic. But the actual process of cleaning is far more individual, based on the particulars of your Sun sign. What’s your cleaning style? How can you maximize your natural strengths from the Zodiac and avoid the pitfalls common to your sign? Read on to find out.
Scorpio loves being in control, and that includes controlling your surroundings. If your living space has spiraled into the chaos of messiness or filth, it can take a surprising emotional toll on you. But the madness has to stop somewhere, and once you get going, spring cleaning can feel wonderfully like cleansing yourself on a psychic level. Therefore, rather than allowing clutter and dirt to upset your composure, it’s time to turn your focus toward regaining control over your domain. While some like to clean alongside family members or housemates, you might prefer to tackle your spring cleaning solo, since you know how you want the job to be done — plus, you may not be sure what might turn up as you clear out closets and drawers. It’s just safer to tackle it on your own! That way, you can be in charge of decisions about whether to keep, toss or donate various items — or find them a new, more appropriate hiding place. You’ll love the deep sense of regeneration that comes from doing the job thoroughly and completely.
