Element Earth

Today is ruled by the element Earth. 

These are pragmatic and work-focused days. Any tasks that involve finances like doing your receipts, VAT returns, checking on investments, etc. belong to today. It is all about bringing order and stability into your life. Be realistic and forward-thinking, but at the same time pay due diligence. It pays off to be consistent, especially when you invest in your future.

Although these days can also be action-packed as you tick off your to-do list, especially during the Waning Moon. Earth Days prompt you to get out into the garden, park, or woodland and reconnect with nature. Planting, weeding, turning the soil – anything to do with preparing the soil for planting are great tasks for today.  The same goes for building-related tasks like laying a new garden path or putting down foundations for patios, pergolas, and fences. In the home, especially when paired with the Waning Moon, these days are ideal for any kind of maintenance or repair jobs.

Earth Days are ideal detox days. Being so busy you won’t even notice not eating too much and you rarely have got time for a big meal anyway. Contrary to common belief, fasting will give you more energy rather than less.  If you do eat,  keep to a healthy, predominately vegetarian diet with a lot of herb teas and water. Give your digestions a mini-break, whilst the rest of the body is busy getting stuff done.

Here is how the elements correspond to the phases of the moon:

Life can be overwhelming. This is a gentle nudge to make sure that you are not just swamped with ‘stuff’, but also leave yourself some time, even as little as 30 minutes a day, to follow your heart and spend doing something truly meaningful that is aligned with your core values.
Once this has become a habit, these fleeting moments compound to a substantial change in outlook and quality of life. It will allow you to create a full-filled way of life brimming with happiness.
