You can return knitted yarn back to the way it was. First unknit it, then soak for five minutes in warm water with a drop of soap, rinse, and hang to dry. Then it's ready to be reknit. I learned this from Ulla.
Today is a waning moonday entering the sign of Cancer -- the moon is only days away from completing another orbit around the earth and beginning its next. We can't see the moon now so this last stretch is called the dark moon time.
And we've just entered a period of Mercury Retrograde (until August 7). While there may be certain future activities to avoid beginning during this time, it is good to go back now -- revisit, rediscover, review, rethink, recall -- let's just say verbs with the "re" prefix that might apply to ideas, communication and travel.
Cancer energy pulls us inward right down to the soul level. This isn't always easy because we're emotional now too but we're also more honest with ourselves, and that can't help but be a good thing.
Cancer influences the chest and stomach areas -- that means both resolution and aggravation of problems in those parts may be energized -- and the healing qualities of herbs harvested now for treating them may be enhanced as well. One of my intentions this day is to listen for which plants are calling to be harvested -- drying for medicine, fresh for dyeing and cooking.
Do you feel the draw inward? I do.
