Nine of Wands
Combining the super-close moon energy with the earthy Taurus, and the building energy of wands, this is a time to recharge, re-stock, and re-center to set yourself up for the coming challenges.
Get really grounded into your body and your physical world. It'll give you the foundation to build from and help keep your energy up as you do your very important work. These are all practices you can come back to when you feel like you're heading for a burnout. Remember that you can do all you need to, but you don't need to do it all at once, and you don't need to do it alone.
-Eat protein and iron-rich foods, and root vegetables
-Spend time with people you love
-Stretch, lift, run, box, dance, sing
-Take 3 deep breaths
-Make something with your hands: knit, draw, sculpt, cook, craft
-Masturbate or have sex with a partner
-Organize your dresser, kitchen, or living room
-Hold a grounding stone or object
-Take care of your plants and animals. Trim old leaves, add new soil. Give your dog a bath and a treat
-Trade massages with a friend or give yourself a foot massage
-Sit quietly and imagine the moon pulling earth energy up into your body
-Go to bed early
-Do one thing at a time
Pictured are a couple of the ways I'm grounding tonight: knitting, making herbal oils, hanging out with excellent rocks and people.
