Sun in Scorpio | Moon in Aries, Taurus & Gemini

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 meditation and visualisation.

Working with the Sun (Ha) in Scorpio, a water sign that encourages us to go within and look at our deep dark, hidden areas we don’t want to talk about and so bring them to the light, preparing ourselves to go within in the darker, longer days of winter.

So, working with the bladder, the urinary tract, the prostate gland, the genitals, the cervix, the reproductive organs and the nose, that others can see but we can’t.

This session stays close to the ground as we move into the darker days and go within, to find ourselves and transform but staying safe and grounded.

The Moon (Tha) is first of all in Aries, working with the head, brain, eyes and muscles. Interestingly, in the mind, body, spirit connection, the muscles correspond to the mind, meaning it is all over the body. If you relax your mind, it relaxes your muscles and vice versa.

The Moon then goes into Taurus to prepare for the full moon. We work with combating fatigue and with the areas Taurus rules – the neck that carries so much vital information, the throat, the lower jaw, the chin, the tongue, the tonsils, the larynx and vocal cords and the thyroid gland.

Lastly, the Moon moves into Gemini that rules the shoulders, arms, hands, fingers, the central nervous system, the nerves and the lungs. We work here to release tension as we shoulder our responsibilities, staying grounded.
