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 Sagittarius | 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, 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 and physically. Sagittarius rules the hips, that 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 Cancer, 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.

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.
