Ways to Survive No. 12: Dark Moon Vibes
During the dark moon, wake up and journal about your dreams and/or feelings that are strong. Hydrate. Draw a tarot card from @Marcellakroll's deck or a deck you like. Consider a long nap midday and maybe restorative and gentle yoga with a bolster, blocks, straps, and blankets. Listen to @TaraBrach’s meditation talk on “From Human Doing to Human Being.” Read about Dark Moon protocols by @Mystic.Medusa or spells by @gottesss in her Many Moons books. Consider a shower or bath in which you scrub your skin with a sea salt scrub (maybe a DIY one with coconut oil or coffee grounds) or forego sea salt and go with epsom salts combined with peppermint body wash. Consider wearing soft clothes that feel like pajamas or that actually are pajamas. Wear dark colors, and dark eyeliner, too--match the colors of the dark moon. If you dab your skin with Chanel No. 5, breathe in sage from your smudge stick. Envelope your body with smoke. Hang out with a cat, maybe one that likes to play fetch with a Q-Tip--the cat holds this Q-Tip aka mini bone in her mouth--what a witchy cat. Make comfort food, roast sweet potatoes or melt dark chocolate and sprinkle cinnamon and nutmeg in warm coconut milk. Decide what you’re going to release this time of the moonth. Let go.
