Full Moon in Libra: Welcoming the Equinox & A Fresh Start
This moon’s focus is on a clean slate that welcomes Spring.
The equinox is a perfect time to do an emotional and spiritual "spring cleaning" as well as a physical one. In addition to being an amazing liver detoxifier, Dandelion flower essence allows one to release rigid and unbending thought forms and body language. Just like it supports the liver in moving stagnation, this flower essence helps those who struggle with compulsive behaviors which can keep us stuck.
"It is thought that one might blow upon the dandelion seeds, and as they drift into the wind, they will carry your wishes to your lover. The soul needing Dandelion flower essence feels a natural intensity and love for life. This flower's energy helps those who over plan, and get caught in the cycle control and demand. This creates intensity and a lack of harmony with others. Furthermore, such persons may become unable to experience a natural flow of life. The Dandelion flower remedy teaches these individuals how to listen closely to emotional messages and bodily needs. As tension is released the soul feels inner ease and balance, allowing spiritual forces to flow through the body in a dynamic, effortless way." ~Isha Lerner
Pay attention to your physical body, the organs heavily influenced under Libra are the kidneys, bladder, pancreas, and skin. This period of time is the perfect opportunity to start a 2-3 week daily ritual of drinking detoxifying tea such as dandelion root. Exfoliate with our Wildcrafted Nettle Fiber Body Cloth
As your detoxifying your internal and external environments, consider the clothing that you put on your body nearly 24 hours a day. Natural and sustainable clothing companies around the world are beginning to acknowledge the benefit of healing clothing and the concept of wearing your medicine. Mary, Seam Siren’s founder, was at SXSW this past month discussing the importance of conscious fashion. We were pleased to be joined by mindfulness jewelry brand BuDhaGirl
who offers a brand promise to help you live an inspired life.
We’re finally seeing the athleisure trend merge into “well-fashion” – clothing and accessories that are sustainably sourced and ethically purchased. No, we don't mean the “hippie hemp” that comes to mind whenever someone mentions plant fashion. We’ are talking about the beautiful plant-dyed silks and sustainably sourced fabrics such as nettle and bamboo fiber. Read more about non-toxic, sustainable fashion at last month’s New York Fashion Week.
Over the last decade, we saw this wellness trend manifest in the beauty and makeup industry in everything from sulfate-free shampoos to chemical-free home products being sold and readily available in supermarkets. The fashion industry is starting to reduce toxins in the form of dyes in favor of plant-dyed fabrics and safer manufacturing processes, with its supporters favoring environment-friendly and skin-safe benefits over fast-fashion costs. It is our hope to continue in helping to spread the movement.
