The ancient birthday of the Roman goddess Pax (Peace), this day provides an opportunity to consider the benefits of removing ourselves from toxic situations so that peacefulness may be restored to us. It is also a wonderful day to take pause and rejoice in the harmony of our lives, even though we may know a thing or two about discord. Whatever your situation, now is a good time to soak in the seas of calm tranquility. Give yourself a moment of repose, making a bath of salts, gentle herbs such as lavender, and warm water. Soak, and let Pax flow on your every breath. You may wish to visualize her olive branch moving from the top of your head to the tip of your toes, removing any vestiges of upset, chaos, or anxiety.

Release yourself into her arms saying, In pace (Latin for "in peace") over and over, first audibly and then in a whisper as you surrender even more deeply.
