Today is ruled by the element Water

Today shapes up to be an emotional, thought-provoking day. Your senses and feelings are heightened. It is a good day for being around trusted friends and family, rather a close circle than the big wide world.

But it is also a great time to look after yourself. Be kind to yourself, take some time out, read a good book, have a bath or go for a walk. Water Days are ideal days to ‘go within’ and meditate.  Like with the oxygen mask in the plane, you need to put your ‘own mask on first’ before you can help others. This is not an act of selfishness, but vital to be a happy member of society. 

If you struggle with certain issues – seek help. Once you have overcome these struggles and find yourself in a happy, balanced state, return the favor and help those who then in turn seek support. Volunteering for a local charity would be a great use of your time, but if you can’t do that, you may be able to donate. As they say – giving is even more joyous than receiving!

Water Days (as the name suggests) are ideal for watering houseplants, bringing out natural fertilizers, and starting a compost heap. They are very fertile dates for planting, especially during the Waxing Moon.
During a Waning Moon try to get a lot of the washing and deep cleaning done –  especially items that you don’t clean too often, like bedspreads, rugs, curtains, and those hidden shelves. 

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

Element Air

Element Air: Waxing Moon – time to network, promote and to create projects/tasks

element fireElement Fire: Full Moon – time to present, love and celebrate


element earth

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 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.

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.
