Sun in Libra | Moon in Gemini, Cancer & Leo

A full session of asanas, starting with a relaxation to bring focus on the breath and floor work.

Focus for the Sun in Libra is on the lower back (lumbar region) where we may have issues due to insecurity. We work by strengthen the core muscles in the abdomen as when we’re strong in our whole being.

Also, Libra rules the adrenal glands, where adrenaline and the start of the stress response come from, and the kidneys, which respond to fear. Libra also encourages us to find our inner balance, as we enter the darkness of winter.

Working with the Moon in Gemini we use the shoulders, arms and hands, releasing tension and using them to help in other ways, especially in the lungs to help us breathe fully. Also, grounding and releasing from the central nervous system and the nerves.

For the Moon in Cancer, its home, we work with the feminine, nurturing, watery areas (whether we’re male or female) of the breasts, the stomach, the womb (if we have one), the digestive system. Gemini works with the upper ribs and Cancer the lower ribs.

Then, for the Moon in Leo, we work with the heart, the spine, the spleen and the upper back.

We always practise some pranayama, a balance and take the spine in all its planes of direction and finish with a relaxing meditation and visualisation.
