#028: 2023 Highlights


Emailed: December 27, 2023
Happy Final Full Moon of 2023.

As we wrap up 2023, we wholeheartedly thank EVERY single person who has contributed to the Grounded 1002 community – the freelancers who make us better, those who engage with our social media, all customers, cult-fans who share our brand with their communities, those who have rocked with care at one of our workshops or concerts, and those subscribed to this newsletter. You mean a lot to us - truly.

We hope Grounded 1002 has played a role, no matter how small, in helping you become a better version of yourself.

That’s our mission. We promote an #intuitivelifestyle so that
people will be a better version of themselves.
Authentically.

Neeta, the brand founder says “take what you
want, and leave the rest,” and we hope you’ve been curious to explore and engage with our lifestyle content, attend our experiences and/or or use our products.

As a #cosmicpowered brand, we strive to align our newsletters with the cycles of the moon by sending them every new moon and full moon, approximately every 14 days. The #intuitivelifestyle we promote acknowledges the energetic influence of the planets - it is astronomy.

Although we understand that astrology is not scientific, we use the astrological beliefs as a coaching tool. With over 2 decades in HR and Operations with Fortune 500's and tech-startups, Neeta has much appreciation of the immense benefits of embodying characteristics of the astrological signs. We are excited to share more in 2024!

If you're curious, today's full moon falls in the same sign as the first full moon of the year, which occurred on January 6th, 2023. Ruled by the moon, the sign of Cancer represents the essence of the human experience. If you'd like to learn more, please see near the bottom of this email.

As you continue reading, we are excited to share our Top 2023 highlights with you. We couldn't resist showcasing what content resonated most with this community.

Before we wrap up, we'd like to wish you a safe,
peaceful, and joyful remainder of 2023.

We’ll be back in 2 weeks with our next newsletter.

Science now supports that good quality Palo Santo calms the nervous system within seconds. At Grounded 1002, we engage with Palo Santo for several other reasons too - found in the 24-page booklet that comes with each order.

Each order of #stixandstones includes with 3 varieties of Palo Santo, coming from different South American forests. Each variety has a unique look and scent – kind of like wine, coffee, or honey – but better; with more benefits. We recommend trying our Palo Santo – it’s organic, SERFOR certified, sustainably grown, and high quality. It also looks beautiful displayed
in the home.
If you’ve ordered some, please do leave a review online – we’d love to share your experience with this product with others.

Full Moon in Cancer - What does it mean?

Symbolised by the crab, the zodiac sign of Cancer represents emotional depth, intuition, and nurturing. It is unique in the sense that it is ruled by the moon instead of a planet.

Astrologically, the moon represents the subconscious minds, emotions, intuition, childhood experiences, and relationships with maternal figures.

This week, grab your #rockwithcare guasha or #stixandstones Palo Santo to tune into this full moon.

At Grounded 1002, we believe that the sign of Cancer truly embodies the human experience. We all have our own experiences with family, emotions, and the subconscious, as we strive to understand the core of our authentic selves.

It is fascinating to note that the first and last full moons of 2023 both occurred in the sign of Cancer. Like a crab, the Cancer sign may exhibit moodiness when not in balance, as it is tough on the outside, yet tender on the inside.

This week is the perfect time to reflect on these characteristics and initiate the process of positive change. Full moons are meant to inspire action rather than introspection.

If there are any necessary changes to bring harmony to your relations with loved ones, trust that your intuition will guide you. Cancer is known for its deep intuition and will not steer you wrong.

Wishing you the best for the remainder of the year and happy 2024!

Grounded 1002 promotes an #intuitivelifestyle, creates experiences, and is a store. Our mission is to be a gateway for people being a better version of themselves. We believe the #essentialelement is to #rockwithcare. After all, we know that the nursery rhyme #stixandstones wasn’t entirely true. Every product and experience we offer is meant to be additive – whether used just once or on a daily basis.
