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.
