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.
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.

Plus the Moon (Tha) in Taurus so working with the neck, throat, chin, jaw, tongue, larynx, vocal cords and thyroid gland.
