blue water moonday

Floating with soft colors again today -- I'm noticing this about Mondays lately. Here are three eco-dyed silk stones cut out and ready to be stitched, a little perle cotton crochet experiment, and an especially-loved vintage postcard because I grew up about 40 miles from there.

We have fresh eggs (with one feather) sold by a marvelous woman-urban-homesteader. The soft old linen tablecloth doesn't quite cover the entire tabletop and it might look funny, but I don't care. And garden sage.





Today is a waning moonday in the water sign of Cancer. Because this is an emotional time, we may want and need to feel nurtured, comfortable, safe and secure. There is no place like home for self-care -- cooking, gardening, watering houseplants, and making cozy changes in our surroundings. And if you happen to notice an attraction to blues and blue-greens today, both the sign of Cancer and Mondays are associated with the color blue. 

Because the sign of Cancer influences the chest area, breasts, stomach, liver and gallbladder, now is a good time to support and heal those parts. Water healing seems most appropriate -- hydration, hot/cold soaks or compresses, baths, even the sound of water soothes and heals. Author Annemarie Colbin writes about a few water healing methods here; I like her easy way to increase circulation and energy -- simply walk barefoot on grass that is still wet with early morning dew for 10 minutes before putting socks and shoes on. 

Water is precious -- we are more than 60% water and can only survive about a week without it. Water is conscious -- Masaru Emoto teaches that our thoughts affect the molecular structure of water. For either/or, I am in deepest gratitude for clean, healing water.


And for the hens that laid these beautiful eggs.

People must be tapping into the moon-energy....yours is the 4th blog I've read this morning that talks about home and self care and nurturing. Love that sweet little feather tucked in with your rainbow of eggs.

Peggy said...

Deanna, thanks -- we may have some of those eggs for dinner tonight, almost hate to eat them now.

Nanette, yay! -- that is good news, isn't it? The little brown feather was such a sweet surprise.

Beautiful eggs! I love the little feather attached, a gift from the hen.
I am washing out indigo, so I think I have the blue and water covered.
Wishing you a beautiful week.

Peggy said...

Thanks, Jeannie -- oh you definitely have it covered! I still wish you'd start a blog so we could see what you're up to? :) A beautiful week to you, too.

ah yes--the blue thing--and just going--been on it for a week now and just started a blue-black piece now that I've almost exhausted the dye pot. Your post is calming--and it IS an emotional time for sure, whether due to the sign if the crab, the season changing, the wicked weather (unusual tornado in NYC) or the wicked world (it can be)--for whatever reason this pastel post with it's soft wool, earnest eggs, green leaves in a pale vase, thoughts of the beach, and suggestions for healing brings a restful, hopeful sensibility to bear.

Those eggs, so beautiful...soft as the ocean air. The delightful surprise feather, soft crochet work and postcard...
Part of your artistry comes in your presentation. It is like a 'home' magazine with soul.
Ahhh...

such pretty eggs. i have been very thirsty lately & dreaming of the sea... what are you crocheting?

Peggy said...

Michelle, thanks, the calming colors appeal on moondays the most, I think. Our weather has definitely changed, I had to use the flash on the camera today!

Peggy said...

Nancy, yes, soft -- we are both feeling the soft vibe! ;) Thank you.

Hi Cindy -- that sounds just right! The crocheting is mostly playing -- wanted to see how hard it is to crochet with a finer thread than the heavy wool I've been using. It's not too bad, but wool is definitely easier!
