7.6.15 – Northern Hemisphere
Ever have one of those days where things just don’t seem to be going your way? You get out of bed to take a shower, and someone’s already in it? You go to get dressed, and all your clothes are still in the wash? You call to reschedule a doctor’s appointment, and the only time they have is weeks out? I’m having one of those days. I don’t know that there’s any magical cure for that, but during such times, I try to do a few things to make life easier on myself:
– Make a list of everything that has to get done, and prioritize it. It seems obvious, but many adults don’t seem to know how to make a to-do list.
– Catch up on chores as much as possible so that things are in good working order.
– Take a bath, with bath salts and white candles and bubbles and possibly some burning sage. It may or may not clear away the negative energy from your person, but at least it’s relaxing.
– Don’t skip my daily meditation time for anything. Some days I skip it if I forget, but when things are extra-hectic and I feel like there’s no way I have time for this, that’s when I need to make time the most.
Monday is the moon-day. It is a day for dreams, emotions, clairvoyance, and divination. It is a day of heightened awareness.
