Sun in Gemini & Cancer | Moon in Virgo, Libra & Scorpio

The Sun (Ha) starts off in airy Gemini; the sign of the twins it is about duality. The Moon (Tha) starts off in earthy Virgo, focusing on soothing of the sympathetic nervous system with the breath. The Moon then moves into airy Libra which is about balance. The Moon then moves into Scorpio when we focus on the hidden areas we don't want to talk about. Lastly, the Sun moves into Cancer, which rules the feminine.

Sun in Gemini | Moon in Gemini, Cancer & Leo

A gentle but strengthening and grounding class to heal and soothe, releasing stress and grounding nervous energy. The Moon (Tha) just starts off in Gemini, ready for the New Moon/partial solar eclipse, ruling the shoulders, arms, hands, lungs, central nervous system and the nerves. Then it moves into Cancer, ruling the feminine, nurturing areas of the stomach, womb, breasts, breastbone and the digestive system. Lastly, it finishes just in Leo, ruling the spine, heart, upper back and spleen. We may feel things more emotionally in these areas when the Moon is in their sign.

Sun in Gemini | Moon in Pisces, Aries & Taurus

We can release all that no longer works for us, by the stretching, strengthening and grounding of our practice. 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 Moon starts off in watery Pisces and we can feel quite ungrounded at this time, so it's important to focus on the feet, keeping them firmly on the ground. Next, the Moon moves into Aries, ruling the head and mind. When we are relaxed in our mind we are relaxed in our body and vice versa.

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 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.

Sun in Aquarius | Moon in Taurus, Gemini & Cancer

The Sun (Ha) is now in airy Aquarius which rules the shin, where the bone, representing our deep, core spiritual beliefs, is close to the surface and can feel vulnerable as we put 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 circulatory system that pumps blood from the heart around the body, metaphorically spreading love around the world.

Sun in Sagittarius | 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, 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 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. 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 when we work 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 to prepare for the full moon on Monday. Gemini rules the shoulders, arms, hands, fingers, the central nervous system, the nerves and the lungs, from where we let go. We work here to release tension as we shoulder our responsibilities, staying grounded and so finding ways to combat fatigue as things build emotionally.

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.
