Physical Health

Hey sweetie, Earth people do love their sweets, but a diet heavy in refined sugar is difficult for your constitution to process. As you use up your current supply of sweet, processed foods, replace them with unsweetened varieties of natural foods. Replace sugar in your coffee or tea with stevia or monk fruit extract that will not spike your insulin or blood glucose to help balance your cravings.

If June’s intense Fire fuels your tendency to worry and ruminate, do not allow yourself to get stressed out and run down. Write down your to-do lists and worries to get them out of your head so you will not have to obsess about them. Avoid feeling overwhelmed by establishing priorities and executing one task at a time that will help you move beyond your established behavioral patterns.


Relationships Health

Once you replenish yourself, you can figure out the best way to fulfill someone else’s needs without exhausting yourself.

Determine whether what you are doing aligns with your purpose and just say “no” to those that take you away from what you need to do or intrude on goals that matter to you. It can be uncomfortable for an Earth person to deny someone, but it’s time to say “no” to energy and time-sucking people.
