Sun in Scorpio | 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 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 Cancer, also 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.
