A gentle but strengthening and grounding class to heal and soothe, releasing stress and boosting the immune system. The last session with the Sun (Ha) in watery Pisces. Pisces rules the feet, and it is important to keep them firmly on the ground while still allowing ourselves to dream. The Sun then moves into Aries which rules the muscles. If the mind is tense, so are our muscles and vice versa.
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.
The Sun (Ha) is in watery Pisces, ruled by Neptune, it can be a very dreamy, nebulous time, when things can seem unreal. Pisces rules the feet. The position of the feet can affect the rest of the body and it’s important to focus on keeping them firmly on the ground. The Moon (Tha) starts off in Leo and then moves into Virgo, focusing on soothing the sympathetic nervous system with the breath. The Moon finishes in Libra, balancing the energy in the adrenal glands and the kidneys.
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.
