Litha Crew Post March 21, 2023 (Catching up from November 2022)

As a Pisces sun, Cancer rising, with my Moon in the 12th house, and Neptune in my 6th… anyway… it all means that I’m a little bit… out there?  Floaty? Spacey?  Not grounded, and a very anxious person.  When I asked my therapist for advice, she said, “Well, what would you tell your clients to do?”  I thought about it and said, “I’d tell them to do grounding exercises.  Breath work, yoga, meditation, and taking their shoes off and putting them on the Earth.”  Do I do any of those things?  Definitely not as much as I should.  I should be walking my talk.  That’s the expression, right?  “Walk the talk”.

So, after the tourist season was over, I knew that I would need some much needed grounding and relaxation.  Months earlier, I booked an AirBnb in New Hampshire for the first week of November with our friends.  I knew that we would all need some peace, quiet, and fresh air in the mountains.  And wow, just a few days helped tremendously.

This photo is my feet in the chilly water of Diana’s Baths in North Conway, NH after a short hike.  Putting my feet in the water in a place filled with stories of native people and faeries was pretty magical.  At that moment, I made myself a little promise to follow more of my own advice.

So, self care…  Positive self talk.  Affirmations.  Love.  What do you tell your friends to do when they’re feeling anxious, stuck, or depressed?  When you feel that way yourself, do you do those things?  Take care of yourself the way you take care of others.  Healers need healing too.
