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: 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 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.
