One Japanese knot bag down, one to go. It's made from this leftover organic cotton and gray linen stash. After I figured out the correct seam allowance, it was pretty easy. You never know how much the cloth should be stretched or if it's just best to start over. I started over -- that's to be expected with me, my modus operandi. The dark linen on the outside is my favorite, but there will be days when I'll use the sunny-side out, too. Both sides have contrasting bottoms.
Today is a waxing moonday in the sign of airy Gemini. Gemini makes us feel less emotional and more intellectual -- also, curious, energetic and outgoing to the point of possibly spreading ourselves too thin.
Besides being a great day to plan and run errands, it's a good people day in general -- we are "on" -- we feel chatty and quick-witted. I love getting together with friends on Gemini days, this was one of the first planetary influences I noticed when I begin this moonwatching journey. In the garden, it's best to weed rather than plant. Gemini is also a mutable sign like Pisces, Virgo and Sagittarius, helping us to shift gears without too much discomfort.
Gemini rules the shoulders, arms, hands, and lungs making now an ideal time to use healing treatments from applying heat to strengthening exercises to receiving acupuncture. We should also remember not to stress or overdo if those parts are problematic.
I am heading to the garden for a weeding session and in keeping with Gemini's influence, I'll wear gloves and remember to occasionally stand and stretch my arms and shoulders and breathe in this gorgeous spring day.
Are you feeling Gemini energy?
