Guide to Self

If you’re anything like us, you love reading about different personality types and figuring out what our little eccentricities say about who we are—why we think and act the way we do, what our strengths and weaknesses are, and what other personality types we’re most likely to get along with. Two of our favorite personality systems are the zodiac signs and the Enneagram types, and once we found out there was a correlation between the two, we knew we had to investigate further!

It’s believed that the nine Enneagram types represent nine celestial bodies—seven planets, the sun and the moon. Since each zodiac sign has a planetary ruler, it makes sense, then, that certain zodiac signs would be associated with specific Enneagram types based on their ruling planet. 

So, we did a little research and determined what we believe to be the corresponding zodiac-Enneagram types. Check them out below to see if your type and sign coincide to get some tips on how you can enjoy the fall season the most.

Type 1 / Mercury / Virgo and Gemini

You’re super hardworking, ambitious and like to keep yourself busy while maintaining balance. You focus on right from wrong and don’t like to make mistakes, to the point that some friends may call you a perfectionist. Your fall nights are best spent with a cozy night in, lighting some scented candles, and getting all of your work done in anticipation for your next big plan. Organize your busy schedule while lounging around in our Eyes of the World Robe.

Type 2 / Moon / Cancer

You’re very generous, warm-hearted and creative, leading to great relationships and emotional expression through art. Your selfless care for others leads you to be the motherly figure of your friends, but make sure to balance with self-care. Make great memories this fall by hosting a friendsgiving dinner and incorporating your creativity with some homemade decorations.

Type 4 / Neptune / Pisces

The ultimate planner, you don’t let anything get between you and carrying out your many goals, but tend to shy away from the unknown. Make the absolute most of this fall by squeezing in haunted houses, apple picking, pumpkin carving, and every fall activity you can before the season is up!

Your calm and reflective demeanor gives you the ability to hold great relationships with others through mutual guidance. Don't worry about planning out this season too far in advance, you benefit from taking whatever plans and opportunities come up as they may.
