The World Sleep Day on March 17 coincides with Mercury moving into Aries just two days later, bringing an energy that speeds up our thought processes and impacts our sleep patterns.
The highly dynamic energy of Aries, which also rules the head, magnifies the characteristics of the planet of mental activity, Mercury. Our mind turns to concrete and immediate actions: thoughts, perception of the world, and communication.
With Mercury in Aries and Mars in Gemini temporarily changing their own signs, a mutually favorable flow of energy is generated and it is easier to find the best result when looking for quick solutions to any issue.
At this time, it’s helpful to look for ways to wind down so you can relax and sleep better.
Sleep for holistic health
Research increasingly shows that the scope of influence of our sleep patterns is comparable to nutrition and exercise, a crucial part in keeping our bodily systems working smoothly.
Sleep quality — over quantity — is one of the three main healthy lifestyle factors impacting mental health most strongly.
In addition, sleeping between 60-90 minutes longer a night can make you happier and healthier, and getting at least seven hours’ sleep a night improves alertness, memory, healthy stress, and overall quality of life.
Connect to your unconscious mind
When we follow our natural cycle in tune with cosmic energy, we also tune into our sleep patterns and can explore our unconscious mind, listening to the messages that our soul transmits to us.
Carl Gustav Jung describes dreams as “a little door hidden in the innermost and most secret recesses of the soul, opening into that cosmic night which was psyche long before there was any ego consciousness”.
