We Know Exactly What's On Your Bedside Table Based On Your Star Sign
When you think about it, your bedside table is as important as your bed. The bedside table is like a mirror for your subconscious, and the place you keep everything you might need when you are at your most vulnerable—early in the morning and late at night, and even in the wee hours if you are someone who struggles to stay asleep through to sunrise.
We believe that our star signs are incredible portals into self-knowledge, and a great way to investigates what makes us tick. Here, we guess what your bedside setup looks like based on your star sign, and recommend what your next bedside purchase should be. Read on to find out what your bedside table holds based on your star sign.
Libra (24 Sep to 23 Oct)
You strive for balance and harmony above all else in life, and your bedside table reflects this. Free of clutter but far from minimal, you style your bedside both for mood and for utility. A handmade ceramic lamp or vase, and a marble catch-all for your nighttime essentials—a hair oil or some natural sleep aid to assist with creating the perfect environment for good quality sleep.

Scorpio (24 Oct to 22 Nov)
Deeply in touch with the psychic realm, whether you realise it or not, you, dear Scorpio, always keep a scented candle or incense holder beside your bed, as well as a notebook to record your dreams in the middle of the night.

Sagittarius (23 Nov to 21 Dec)
Since you are always anticipating your next adventure, your time in bed is precious. Because of this, your bedside table has absolutely all the essentials you might need throughout the night and tomorrow morning: lip balm, hair ties, face oil, spot treatment, facial mist, a carafe of water, plus at least one inspiring art book to flip through as you wind down to sleep.

Capricorn (22 Dec to 20 Jan)
Because you work so hard, you find it difficult to wind down at night, which is why you keep an inspiring book on your bedside table, plus chargers for your devices—multiple.

Aquarius (21 Jan to 19 Feb)
While you are actually the last air sign in the zodiac, you are also the water bearer, so a sizeable water carafe is the centrepiece of your bedside table. You march to the beat of your own drummer, and keep an artist's print above your bedside to inspire you every night before bed and every morning when you wake up.

Pisces (20 Feb to 20 Mar)
Inherently compassionate, you often reach the end of the day drained of energy. Your bedside table likely houses a drawer full of self-care tools, namely a pair of comfortable, noise-cancelling headphones that you use to meditate with before bed and in the morning, or a wireless speaker to play rain sounds while you drift off. Your dream journal tends to be filled with more than just your dreams—you are compelled to make a record of your thoughts and feelings in order to process them and wake up feeling refreshed.

Aries (21 Mar to 20 Apr)
Highly enthusiastic and raring to go, always, your bedside is a simple affair with only the practical accessories required to ease you into sleep at night and invite you out of bed in the morning. On your bedside table you'll find the latest inspiring book you're reading and very little else.

Taurus (21 Apr to 21 May)
An earth sign, you align best and draw energy from the organic world. This is why your bedside houses not only a small potted plant sitting in a handmade ceramic pot but also a petite vase of fresh-cut flowers. In addition, a handmade catch-all keeps your organic skincare tidy, with body oil and face mask getting regular use in your night and morning self-care rituals.

Gemini (22 May to 21 Jun)
Gemini, you need to calm down—at least that's what people keep telling you. As the sign most likely to be busy, your bedside may reflect this. One, if not two, if not three devices sit atop your bedside table: one for chatting to friends in your Instagram DMs and another for browsing your TikTok #foryou page or Zooming with family.

You have so many emotions, and it shows. Your bedside likely houses a stylish tissue-box holder for the inevitable cry sesh or sad movie viewing. Beside it sits a framed photo or treasured heirloom, and a vase with some trimmings of your backyard rose bush.

Leo (23 July to 22 Aug)
No stranger to the concept of self-worth, you consider your bedside table something of a vanity, which is why you keep a face mirror and Mason Pearson hairbrush on top, plus a full range of creams, oils and other concoctions designed to make your beauty sleep count. You love a drop of perfume oil in the mornings, but apart from all of this, prefer any additional clutter to be out of the way and in a drawer.

Virgo (23 Aug to 23 Sep)
You are grounded in the present, with a naturally logical mindset that other signs only dream of. Because you think so clearly, your expectations for your self—and others—can sometimes be too high, and your patience can be tested. On your bedside table you keep a daily planner and spares of everything: chargers, bobby pins, hand cream, and a book for every mood.
