Theme: Cleanse is our theme for March 2021. As a verbal person and a writer – I like to define what we are talking about so that everyone is on the same page so what does it mean to cleanse. So according to the dictionary, as a verb, to cleanse is to make (something, especially the skin) thoroughly clean. As a noun, to cleanse is a process or period of time during which a person attempts to rid the body of substances regarded as toxic or unhealthy, typically by consuming only water or other liquids.
Welcome to March 2021. We are officially coming up on a year of when the world changed in what felt like an instant (although history will likely disagree). So as we continue to navigate this period of pause and start to creep towards spring and a happier anniversary (Two Years of Smudge approaches), we decided that the theme for March is cleanse. Spring is a period of renewal and growth but sometimes we have to clear the old clutter out of the way first to make room for the new growth. Maybe it’s time to clean your car, or clear your apartment, or cleanse your body on the inside. So this month at Smudge we will be supporting this cleanse period with articles around the theme of cleanse. We will talk about crystals, tarot cards, rituals and all the things we love at Smudge. Since it is also Women’s History Month, we will also be talking about dope women in wellness and highlighting the work they are doing.
New Moon – March 13
Spring Equinox – March 20
Full Moon – March 28
March is going to be a great month of cleanse so that we can shed and grow and enter the spring ready to shine. The beautiful thing about making things clean is that it gives us a fresh space or canvas, a renewed starting point to move from. Let’s get cleansed together!
