𝘩𝘦 𝘋𝘢𝘯𝘤𝘦 𝘰𝘧 𝘈𝘯𝘨𝘦𝘳 by Harriet Lerner.
My recommended Spring read, very apropos of #ChineseMedicine which connects Spring with the Liver and the associated emotions of Anger.
And sharing this on a Mars ruled day, apropos of Anger (& Co) in #Astrology as well!
Other words around “Anger”: 𝘥𝘦𝘱𝘳𝘦𝘴𝘴𝘪𝘰𝘯, 𝘧𝘳𝘶𝘴𝘵𝘳𝘢𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯, 𝘪𝘳𝘳𝘪𝘵𝘢𝘣𝘪𝘭𝘪𝘵𝘺, 𝘳𝘢𝘨𝘦; 𝘥𝘳𝘪𝘷𝘦, 𝘱𝘢𝘴𝘴𝘪𝘰𝘯, 𝘢𝘴𝘴𝘦𝘳𝘵𝘪𝘷𝘦𝘯𝘦𝘴𝘴, 𝘢𝘤𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯.

Do you tend to direct your anger inward, or outward?
Me? Inward. There was a time when I could barely identify with the emotion itself 🤦♀️ (which didn’t mean it wasn’t there!)
Learning astrology confirmed how I’ve been prone to inwardly directing my anger to the point of not even seeing it (seriously mind blowing 🤯). And through Chinese Medicine, I learned how this was playing out in my body (equally 🤯 !).
It’s a universal, year-round emotion, but spring in particular is a great time to work with it.
This book is a excellent resource. Not a book just for ‘women’, as it includes the dance of anger in relationships and family systems, too.
𝗕𝗼𝗱𝘆-𝘄𝗼𝗿𝗸 is KEY (in my very biased opinion) in helping us adopt a healthy relationship to anger, to our bodies, and life itself.
If you want to explore this more in an acupuncture session, link in bio to book.
If interested in an astrology reading, I will likely be opening up spots late spring/early summer. Stay tuned.
