We’re in the Earth phase of the 5 element cycle, late summer, harvest time before we enter the Metal time of Autumn. A transitional time of year as the energy starts to descend into the earth after being at its height in the summer. A good time of year for body work to ground us and bring us back into our bodies after the headiness of summer. We need come into our earth so that we can start the Metal phase which invites us to let go of that we no longer need so that we can join the Water phase of reflection and rest in the winter and be ready new growth in the spring, the Wood phase .
Using the 5 element cycle can be a helpful way to tune into the cycles of life around us and come more fully into our own cycles and our connection to the greater whole.
