Today is ruled by the element Earth.
Today is a pragmatic and work-focused day. Any task involving finances like adding money to investments, doing your receipts, VAT returns, etc. belongs 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 and be persistent, especially when you invest for your future.
Although these days a very action-packed as you tick off your to-do list, Earth Days prompt you to get out in the garden and reconnect with nature. Planting, weeding, turning the soil – anything to do with preparing the soil for planting, but also 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:
Element Air: Waxing Moon – time to network, promote and to create projects/tasks
Element Fire: Full Moon – time to present, love and celebrate
Element Earth: Waning Moon – time to work hard and turn ideas into actions
Element Water: New Moon – evaluate your work and get in-tune with your emotions and inner longings.
Life can be overwhelming. This is a gentle nudge to make sure that your 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.
