March is a wonderful month in many ways. The worst of winter is behind us with the days becoming noticeably longer. Bulbs are poking though the ground, while trees and plants are starting to bud. I am lucky to have several plants that bloom early, including this gorgeous Clematis. Some years March hosts Easter. (Please don’t ask me to explain why some years Easter is in March and some years it’s in April. I kind of know, but have no easy, compartmentalized explanation)
March is also birthday month for a large percentage of my friends, who happen to be Pisces if you follow birth signs. I can see no logical reason for this except Pisces is also a water sign like me (I’m a Scorpio), and they are easy-going enough that they put up with me.
We Scorpios are pretty good at figuring out what we need and ensuring we get it. ME time, Spa time, Friend time, Outdoor time, Chocolate time. Wine time. On an intuitive level Pisces also know what they need, but they need to be reminded because they get busy doing for others.
Which is why I was thrilled to learn about this dandy little book, The Little Book of Self Care for…(insert horoscope sign). One of my many Pisces friends intuitively gave one to me and I love it, so have been sharing my enthusiasm by paying it forward to many of my friends. Even the non-Piscians have said, “This is exactly what I need right now”. Because if we can’t remind our friends to take care of themselves, who can?
Thus my gentle reminder to you, Dear Reader. March is an excellent time to start taking better care of yourself, to slow things down and take a breath, to count your blessings and write down something every day that you are grateful for. Even when life looks dark, you are beset with challenges and things are going sideways, you can always find one thing to be thankful for.
