Sun in Virgo | Moon in Capricorn, Aquarius & Pisces

A gentle but deep session when we can release emotions by the stretching, strengthening and grounding of our practice, and nurture by de-stressing with self-care and love. The last session of the Sun (Ha) in Virgo, focusing on the way stress affects us in our body and how our breathing can help this. The Moon (Tha) starts off in earthy Capricorn. We can feel our emotions here, and either bend too easily or can't bend to others. The Moon then moves into airy Aquarius, to prepare for the full moon as it's opposite Leo. The Moon then finishes in watery Pisces, ready for the Pisces full moon, helping us to feel grounded, when we might feel quite ungrounded, so it's important to focus on the feet, keeping them firmly on the ground.

Sun in Leo & Virgo | Moon in Capricorn, Aquarius & Pisces

A gentle but deep session when we can release emotions that no longer works for us, by the stretching, strengthening and grounding of our practice, so de-stressing and allowing us the strength to move forward. We start with the Sun (Ha) in fiery Leo which rules the heart where it's important to learn to receive as well as give love for our health. The Sun then moves into Virgo, focusing on the way stress affects us in our body, the fight or flight response and how our breathing can help this. The Moon (Tha) starts off in earthy Capricorn. We can feel our emotions here, and either bend too easily or can't bend to others. The Moon then moves into airy Aquarius, to prepare for the full moon as it's opposite Leo, ruling the circulatory system, pumping the blood (or love) from the heart around the body (or the world). The Moon finishes in watery Pisces. We can feel quite ungrounded at this time, so it's important to focus on the feet, keeping them firmly on the ground.

Sun in Gemini | Moon in Sagittarius, Capricorn & Aquarius

We can release emotions that no longer works for us, by the stretching, strengthening and grounding of our practice, so allowing us the strength to move forward. The Sun (Ha) is in airy Gemini; the sign of the twins it is about duality, or pairs: it rules the shoulders, where we carry responsibility, the arms, hands and fingers with which we express ourselves, the lungs, the source of the breath and so life, the thymus gland, the upper ribs and, lastly, the nerves and the central nervous system that runs parallel to the spine, where the dualities meet to centre us. The Moon (Tha) starts off in Sagittarius ruling the thighs and femur, giving us structure and power to move forward but with the hips guiding our direction.

Sun in Aries | Moon in Aquarius, Pisces, Aries & Taurus

The Sun (Ha) is in fiery Aries. Aries rules the head, the brain, the eyes and the muscles. Yoga is good for all the muscles, but you can focus on specific areas of need too. The Moon (Tha) starts off just in Aquarius, so focusing on the circulatory system, before moving into Pisces. Pisces rules the feet and the immune system. We can feel quite ungrounded at this time, so it's important to focus on the feet. Next, the Moon moves into Aries, to prepare for the Aries new moon, ruling the head, brain, eyes, muscles again, feeling this all doubly, emotionally too, and so the mind. The Moon then finishes by being in Taurus briefly, ruling the neck and throat particularly. We can release all that no longer works for us, by the stretching, strengthening and grounding of our practice.

Sun in Pisces | Moon in Aquarius, Pisces & Aries

With the Sun (Ha) in Pisces and then the Moon (Tha) in Pisces for the new moon, the emphasis is very much on our health, strengthening the immune system. So, we work on the poses releasing negative energy and bringing in positive. The Moon starts in Aquarius, so we do some stretching to release and strengthen the ankles and breath work for the circulation. The Moon then moves into Pisces for the new moon. We need to ground especially at this time and be aware of the feet. Then, the moon finishes in Aries, starting the zodiac cycle again in the head, brain, eyes and muscles, relating to the mind.

Sun in Aquarius & Pisces | Moon in Taurus, Gemini & Cancer

The last session with the Sun (Ha) in airy Aquarius. Aquarius rules the lower leg: the shin, where the bone, representing our deep, core spiritual beliefs, is close to the surface and can feel so vulnerable as we step forward, pushing our beliefs out there. The calf behind is made of soft tissue that represents our mind, which hopefully offers energy and support to our beliefs. Aquarius also rules the ankles, which we can easily turn when we are not feeling supported, either emotionally or in our outer world. The Sun then moves into Pisces, ruling the feet and the immune system. We can feel quite ungrounded at this time, so it is important to focus on the feet, keeping them firmly on the ground, while still allowing ourselves to dream in grounded reality, to make it happen.

The Sun (Ha) is in airy Aquarius. Aquarius rules the lower leg: the shin, where the bone, representing our deep, core spiritual beliefs, is close to the surface and can feel so vulnerable as we step forward, pushing our beliefs out there. Aquarius also rules the circulatory system that pumps blood from the heart (ruled by Leo, Aquarius's opposite sign) around the body, metaphorically spreading love around the world. The Moon (Tha) starts off also in Aquarius, to prepare for the Aquarius new moon, doubly the effects of Aquarius. The Moon then moves into Pisces, ruling the feet. We can feel quite ungrounded, so it's important to keep our feet firmly on the ground, still allowing ourselves to dream but in grounded reality, to make it happen. Lastly, the Moon moves into Aries, ruling the mind, which resides in our whole body, corresponding to our muscles. When we are relaxed in our mind we are relaxed in our body and vice versa.

Sun in Aquarius | Moon in Leo, Virgo & Libra

The Sun (Ha) is now in airy Aquarius whose symbol is the water bearer. So, like Capricorn, there is a sensitivity many don't realise is there. Aquarius rules the lower leg: the shin, where the bone, representing our deep, core spiritual beliefs, is close to the surface and can feel so vulnerable as we step forward, pushing our beliefs out there. The calf behind is made of soft tissue that represents our mind, which hopefully offers energy and support to our beliefs. It also rules the ankle, which is our support. Aquarius is a fixed sign which also rules the heels, which we can dig in when we're being stubborn or tenacious.

Sun in Capricorn | Moon in Aquarius, Pisces & Aries

The Sun (Ha) is in Capricorn, an earth sign, ruled by Saturn, corresponding to our deep core spiritual beliefs that hold us up. Capricorn also rules the joints, which is about our flexibility, particularly emotionally. We start with the Moon (Tha) in Aquarius, which rules our circulatory system, how we spread the love. Working next with the Moon in Pisces, which rules the feet and the immune system. Staying grounded is so important at this time and keeping our immune system healthy too. Lastly, the moon moves into Aries where we start at the beginning again, working with the head, the mind and muscles, working together to help mind, body and spirit reintegrate.

Sun in Sagittarius | Moon in Capricorn, Aquarius & Pisces

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. The last session this cycle working with the Sun (Ha) in Sagittarius, a fire sign that now gives us the energy to travel and move forwards, especially after the new moon, whether that be inwardly and spiritually or outwardly and physically. Sagittarius rules the hips, which 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. Starting with the Moon (Tha) in Capricorn, this works with our skeletal frame, our structure that holds us together, our bones, which represent our deep core spiritual beliefs and our flexibility in our joints, especially the knees. Then the moon moves into Aquarius, which rules our vulnerable shins and Achilles heel, the calves and ankles plus our circulatory system, how we spread the love. Lastly, working with the Moon in Pisces, which rules the feet and the immune system. Staying grounded is so important at this time and keeping our immune system healthy too.

Sun in Libra & Scorpio | Moon in Capricorn, Aquarius & Pisces

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 adrenal glands, kidneys, lower back and balance for the Sun (Ha) in Libra and then moving into the Sun 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. For the Moon (Tha) initially in Capricorn, we work with our structure, our skeletal frame that holds us together, the bones, the joints, particularly the knees. We may feel things emotionally in our bones. The Moon then moves into Aquarius bringing us to the vulnerable shins and Achilles heel, the ankles, that hold us up and support, and the circulatory system, how we pump blood (or love) from our hearts around the body (the world). Finally, the Moon moves into Pisces which rules the feet and the immune system, keeping grounded with our feet on the ground and giving ourselves a boost.
