Establishing a Ritual of Daily, Weekly, and Monthly Self-Care

It is so important to take care of ourselves.

Good Witches Homestead

There’s something to be said about intentionally setting aside time in our hectic schedules to focus entirely on our lives, our bodies and our health (both mental, and physical).

But so often, this is easier typed than done.

I believe in our culture, there’s certain guilt about slowing down, even for a short time, especially when it’s for the sake of our own wellbeing. We’re fascinated by the hustle, by the busyness of it all, and drawn into that hamster wheel of constant productivity, for the sake of getting ahead.

But I can attest, alongside so many others, that establishing a ritual of daily, weekly, and monthly self-care, slowing down and tuning out (in order to really tune in), can greatly benefit whatever your life’s work is. Whatever that hustle is meant for.

Card of the Day – 8 of Swords – Friday, January 11, 2019

Tarot by Cecelia

Here it is again! The 8 of Swords is notorious for showing up more frequently than any other card here on the blog. However, this time around, how you handle it appears to be changing. Yesterday, I mentioned that the Sun would conjunct Pluto today and that personal transformation is imminent. Something has left you feeling powerless and trapped for far too long, and the urge to break free is likely overwhelming.

One of the things which I always say with this card is “The only thing that can stop you is you”. Truly, this transformation which is needed at this time is not as much about transforming your outer world as it is your headspace.
