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 Sagittarius | Moon in Libra, Scorpio & Sagittarius

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 physically outwardly. 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 in Libra, an air sign, where we find our inner balance before we transform, and release fear from the adrenal glands and kidneys, finding our core strength to support the lower back and stay grounded. The Moon then moves into Scorpio, digging deep into those hidden areas that we don't want to look at or can't see - the bladder, urinary tract, the reproductive organs, the prostate gland, the cervix, and the nose. Lastly, the Moon moves into fiery Sagittarius, allowing us to move forward to the new moon in Sagittarius, emotionally, spiritually and physically.

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 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.
