I've been reading a little book about healing toxic thoughts by Sandra Ingerman, a counselor that uses shamanic journeying in her work. Her words about movement and the elements leapt out at me, and just as true when looking at your own energies astrologically.
Water that is moving is healthy. When water is stagnant, it becomes polluted. Air that is moving is healthy. Air that is not moving becomes stale. The earth itself is in constant movement. Our spirit, which is fire, needs movement or we lose passion and meaning for life. We stop being creative and fall into feelings of depression and despair.
It's a 'note to Self' that I wanted to share. That sometimes the way to cure the winter blues is not to retreat and take it easy but to get moving.(c) Yarik Mission
