Spring Equinox in Conjunction with Full Moon
Spring is the sign of New Beginnings. Today begins a new cycle of making the decision to let go of the old and manifesting a vision to welcome the new. This means walking your talk. There is a lot of talking out there but it can only hold power for you when you walk it. Believe me, when you talk and don’t walk, people quit listening. When you walk the talk, people notice.
With the Spring Equinox, we move into the sign of Aries of action which this year immediately conjuncts Uranus, a planet of freedom and independence. Aries is a fiery sign, which rebels against the norm and is the risk taker. This is the time, to make put your walk into action. The economy is stressful; the war disturbing, and the weather patterns are horrible. Everywhere, you hear people blaming and complaining. However, you can choose to react or respond to the difficulties in your life. You can focus or scatter. You can choose to follow or lead. You can have sour lemons or make lemonade. That choice is always yours.
You can choose today and each day after to step through the fear of the unknown and have faith in your own abilities. Take a deep breath and put one foot in front of the other and make the changes you have been speaking of lately.
According to Feng Shui principles, the spring season activates the element of wood. Wood holds the energy of new growth and creativity. The wood element and the springtime is when focus and clarity is at its peak, however, the wood element also activates the unresolved emotions of anger. Anger is housed in the liver and gall bladder, thus making the springtime an excellent time to become pro active for cleansing your body and getting your body in shape for the year.
As you are coming off the hibernation of the winter, the body energy is stagnant from lack of sunlight and fresh air. Circulation is sluggish. This is the time to go outside, take some deep breaths and allow the new energy of spring to circulate through the body. Allow the sunlight and Vitamin D to soak through the skin and into the organs. Begin a short exercise program if you have not already done so. Swimming, walking, Tai Chi, or easy yoga is a good way to start warming up the body for summer.
You may wish to add a short liver cleanse to your routine. This cleanse will help the body release the toxins quicker as you are exercising. Apple cider vinegar is a great liver cleanse. One that was recommended to me by a massage therapist is simply one with Apple Cider Vinegar. You take 2 tsp. of apple cider vinegar stirred in water approximately 15 minutes before you each meal your eat or you can eat 2 tsp of Apple cider vinegar with your meals on a salad or in your food. Do this three times a day for three days in a row. You may also take a 20 minutes soak in one quart of vinegar to a bathtub of water.
Disclaimer: As with anything, check with your medical doctor if you are on any medications or in ill health to make sure the cleanse is safe and does not interfere with medication.
During a cleanse you may feel somewhat headachy, tired, or nauseated. You may see skin eruptions as the toxins are cleansed from the liver. This is normal, however be careful of too harsh of a cleanse. They are totally unnecessary.
During your cleanse, remove all alcohol, tobacco, sugar, dairy, and soda from your diet. Try to eat raw fruits and vegetables as much as possible.
The detox foot baths and body massage will also help remove the toxins from your body quicker. You may also wish to use milk thistle as a liver rejuvenator.
After the cleanse you may find a new clarity and focus. This is the time to put vision into motion. Have a plan, start today by journaling your intentions for the things in your life that you wish to manifest. Each morning as you begin your day, get focused.
Enjoy, life is short. Don’t waste it on trivial worry. Life it with passion.
