What does it mean to take care of yourself? – Full Moon in Cancer January 17, 2022
Healing is a process by which a person becomes more whole. When illness or injury–even dying–are happening, healing can take place emotionally and spiritually even if things physically are never going to go back to the way they were.
This is what happens when you have important conversations with a dying loved one, or learn to adapt to a physical loss.
So whether you are dealing with a loss in your life, or learning to adjust to changes and challenges in work, relationships, health, living situation, or daily routine, this Cancer Full Moon is a good time to attend to your needs at deep levels.
Around this Full Moon, remember that the more you take responsibility for your own needs for caring, healing, and emotional support, the more you create a world in which all beings receive the caring and healing each of us needs.
How will you prioritize deeper needs, such as:
- Quiet time
- Breathing deeply
- Spending time in nature
- Eating slowly
- Being creative
- Spending time with friends
- Reading a book
It’s the perfect time to review and renew your regular self care practices to address what not just your body, but your body, mind, soul, and spirit need. The people in your life and those in the world around you need you to fully be your best self.
