It is believed that the veins of precious metals in the Earth are pathways for energy -- or, you could say, the acupuncture meridians of the Earth. Certain areas of the planet seem to hold the bulk of each of the precious metals, while the metals in turn each resonate with a particular heavenly body. Silver, found mostly in North & South America, is energetically connected to the moon. It makes sense when you think about silver being the most light-sensitive metal and the moon being all about reflecting light. More descriptive words for moon energy are -- femininity, emotion, receptive, magnetic, subconscious, intuitive, gentle, encouraging, and sensitive.
I like that when I touch a beautiful silver bowl or wear a piece of silver jewelry, there is moon energy in it. I like that a silver platter emulates the moon's ever-changing reflective light. I love that my mother's silver flatware reminds me that she used it only once in a blue moon and for women-friends exclusively. In the photo, you'll see my silver crescent necklace -- about a moon or so ago, I decided to wear it. Always. Except when I took it off for the photo. You know how sometimes you latch onto something for a while? Like I said a while back, my ruling planet is the moon and Luna has her way with me.
On this beautiful, bright and sunny moonday, we have a waxing crescent moon in the sign of Aries. The waxing moon is a time of growth, strengthening, and building. The seeds of possibilities envisioned on the new moon are now newly-sprouted realities beginning to root themselves and need our continued attention. Efforts are easily showing results and projects are progressing toward completion.
Aries is a dry, warm sign and influences our heads, the eyes, nose and brain. Conditions of those areas are well-treated now -- if you suffer from migraines, this is an ideal time to begin taking a natural preventative, like the herbal treatment of feverfew. Or if you are prone to tension headaches, these Aries days are also more likely to produce a headache so try to keep yourself out of stressful situations. Because of Aries' dryness, you may find that you are thirstier than usual and need to drink a little more water. Running a humidifier is also something to keep in mind, especially if you find yourself with a dry, stuffy nose at night.
At the first sign of cold or flu, there may be greater success now with the use of 3% hydrogen peroxide in the ear canal -- 3 drops for 5-10 minutes in each ear -- to eliminate infection-causing germs. Dr. Susan Lark and Dr. Joseph Mercola both recommend this treatment as some, if not most, colds are caused by infection entering the ear canal and spreading from there. I've personally had success with this method several times -- oh, if I'd only known this remedy when I had small children!
Do you notice your moon seeds sprouting and taking root?
