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.

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.

Capricorn rules the bones, our skeletal frame that is our structure, corresponding to our deep core spiritual beliefs that hold us up.

The Moon (Tha) begins in Libra, where we find our inner balance before we transform, and release, finding our core strength to support the lower back and stay grounded. Then moving into Scorpio, digging deep into those hidden areas that we don't want to look at or can't see.

Sun in Capricorn | Moon in Gemini, Cancer, Leo & Virgo

A full but gentle 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 Sun (Ha) is now in Capricorn, an earth sign, ruled by Saturn. Saturn is about structure and Capricorn rules the bones, our skeletal frame that is our structure, corresponding to our deep core spiritual beliefs that hold us up. Capricorn also rules the joints, where the bones meet, especially the knees, which is about our flexibility, particularly emotionally. Capricorn's symbol is the goat, but with a fish's tail, so more sensitive than realised. All yoga is good for the bones and joints but we have our awareness being mindful of them particularly here. We start with the Moon (Tha) in Gemini, which rules the arms, shoulders, lungs, central nervous system and nerves. We then move to the Moon in Cancer, to prepare for the full moon, working with the stomach, digestive system and womb, to self-nurture. We do some work with the Moon in Leo, for the heart, upper back, spine and spleen. Finally come to the Moon in Virgo, working with the large and small intestines and the sympathetic nervous system. We always work with being grounded but particularly in this session.

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.
