Are you feeling anxious? Spaced-out? Overwhelmed? The recent Total Lunar Eclipse in Libra was intense. Even days after a full Moon, many people are still struggling to find their footing again.

If this sounds like you, here are a few simple techniques you can try to find relief from this full Moon (or any full Moon):

Hug a tree. Nature is our best healer for restoring balance on all levels of being. If you are overwhelmed by your thoughts or emotions, go outside. Take a walk and feel the Sun. Sit under a tree, and in your mind, imagine sinking down the tree roots. In just a few minutes, you’ll likely feel better.

Bathe in salt water. Our bodies are mostly water, and the Moon rules the water and the tides. A bath in salt water (even better, a swim in the ocean) can restore your balance with your lunar nature. Adding calming herbs to the bath, such as lavender or chamomile, can also encourage your body to relax. (I often use Celestial Seasonings Chamomile tea bags, less mess, and it always makes me smile to think of an astrologer bathing in celestial seasonings.)

Use a holistic remedy. The Moon governs our emotional and etheric bodies – the intuitive part of us with which we sense the vibe of things. Holistic remedies such a flower essences, aroma therapy and homeopathy are especially helpful when this part gets frazzled, because they operate at the source of the imbalance. If during and after full Moons you often feel out of sorts, consider investigating these healing modalities. Most remedies are gentle enough that you can experiment for yourself during a full Moon to see what brings you the most relief. Or a good holistic practitioner can recommend a combination that meets your needs.

Astro-logical living means living in harmony with the rhythms of nature. Often times that means being aware of what’s occurring around you and taking simple steps to work with the experience.
