September 27 Self Care Sunday

September 27 Self Care Sunday

September 27 and it is time for a self care Sunday.  If you have been doing the movement moments the rest of the week then it is wise and appropriate to give yourself a rest or at least a variation.  It is a good day for self care because it is an auspicious full moon tonight. Earth sky says:  “It happens to be the closest supermoon of 2015. It’s the Northern Hemisphere’s Harvest Moon, or full moon nearest the September equinox.  This September full moon is also called a Blood Moon, because it presents the fourth and final eclipse of a lunar tetrad: four straight total eclipses of the moon, spaced at six lunar months (full moons) apart.”  Full moons often seem to sensitize us to our emotions; lunar eclipses can bring up the emotions that are unconscious to the surface. Our unconscious emotions are the ones we associate with our shadow side.  So for your day of rest, let your emotions flow freely.  This is a good day to go deep within and do some inner housekeeping.  Try to avoid the temptation to focus on what you don’t like, just allow yourself to acknowledge, label, and embrace each feeling.   As my wise friend Joe once said, “what you won’t forgive, you must become.”
