Sun in Sagittarius | Moon in Cancer, Leo & Virgo

A full session starting with lying down and connecting with the breath, easing into floor asanas, a grounded sun salutation, pranayama and asanas to extend, balance, twist, side bend and inversion. Finishing with a relaxing, elemental meditation and visualisation.

Working with the Sun (Ha) in Sagittarius, a fire sign that now gives us the energy to travel and move forwards after the introspection of Scorpio, whether that be inwardly and spiritually or outwardly and physically.

Sagittarius rules the hips, that decide our direction, the thighs that give us the power to move, the femur which is the structure that holds us together to move, the pelvis and sacral region where we store a lot of energy or trauma that is released when we open the hips and, finally, the liver, reached through the inner thigh from where we release toxins.

The Moon (Tha) is first of all in Cancer, a water sign, feminine and nurturing and is about those areas that allow us to nurture ourselves – the breasts, stomach, womb, the digestive system and, some say, the pancreas.

The Moon then moves into Leo, which rules the heart, the spine, the upper back and the spleen and awakens the fire within us.

Lastly, the Moon moves into Virgo that rules the large and small intestines, the bowel and lower digestive tract plus the sympathetic (flight or fight) and parasympathetic (rest and digest) nervous systems; its earth encouraging us to stay grounded and breathe to stay calm and release all that no longer works for us.
