The element Water
Today is associated with emotional depth, dreams, intuition, visionary inspiration, and healing. The element water is the most introspective element in this cycle. Similar to New Moon, Water Days are great to listen to ‘your inner voice’ and fill-in/add to your life goal planner.
Every action starts with a vision, a dream, a conception. Most successful entrepreneurs will say – it all started with a thought and burning desire. This quality is often overlooked as it is intangible. But it is this process that informs the vision of your life.
In these vital moments ignore any dismissive ‘inner voices’ and start believing in yourself. Put a vision board together, look at it and believe it. It is amazing how the mind reacts. They say ‘seeing is believing’ and it is true. You need to ‘see what you want to do’ and you need to write your goals down.
Anybody who thinks this is a bit woohoo out there has most likely never done this exercise before. Before you dismiss it, I urge you to give it a try first. Put together a mood board of everything that you want in your life in the next few years. For the next 3 months look at it daily and then read through your goals and core value in your lifestyle planner – yes every morning. Our mind needs to be told what to think and this is a gentle and positive reprogramming.
Below you find a short summary and overview of particularly beneficial activities, all sorted by the various lifestyle areas. For more specific advice and information please click each symbol description on the
Month Ahead Lifestyle calendar
LOOKING GOOD: Healing and cleansing beauty treatments, pedicures, not the best days for hair cuts (Water Days had the reputation of ‘bad hair days’).
FEELING FANTASTIC: self-help, meditation, inspiring courses and lessons, philosophy talks and cultural experiences.
HAPPY HOUSE: Watering, fertilizing, lawn care, composting, planting and anything to do with deep cleaning and washing.
FINANCE/VOCATION: Job hunting, learning and goal planning. Reading the fine print of contracts and juggling paperwork.
FEELING LOVE: Water days are romantic days and full of love. That is why they make good Family Days where you spend a little bit more quality time with your children and partner. But please don’t forget to look after yourself. Take an hour here and there and spend this precious time wisely to look after yourself and visualize where life will take you.
