Sun in Libra | Moon in Aries, Taurus & Gemini

A relaxing but invigorating and strengthening class to heal, ground and balance, so releasing stress and tension, to leave us feeling energised and secure. The Sun (Ha) moves into Libra exactly at the point of the autumnal equinox. Libra is about balance and at the equinox, when the days and nights are of equal length, we find our inner equilibrium to prepare us to go inwards. The Moon (Tha) is first in Aries, ruling the head, brain, and so the mind, which isn't in the head but in the whole body, corresponding to the muscles in the mind, body, spirit connection. The Moon then moves into Taurus ruling the neck that carries important information and finishes in Gemini, ruling the central nervous system.

Sun in Virgo | Moon in Aries, Taurus & Gemini

A gentle but earthy and grounded class to release stress and tension, leaving us feeling energised but at the same time relaxed and peaceful. The Sun (Ha) is in Virgo, ruling the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system. So, this is focusing on the way stress affects us in our body, the fight or flight response and how our breathing can help this. Also, how holding onto issues can be detrimental, we need to learn to let go. The Moon (Tha) is first in Aries, ruling the mind and muscles. When we are relaxed in our mind we are relaxed in our body and vice versa. The Moon then moves into Taurus ruling the neck that carries important information, finishing in Gemini, ruling the central nervous system and the nerves.

Sun in Gemini | Moon in Gemini, Cancer & Leo

A gentle but strengthening and grounding class to heal and soothe, releasing stress and grounding nervous energy. The Moon (Tha) just starts off in Gemini, ready for the New Moon/partial solar eclipse, ruling the shoulders, arms, hands, lungs, central nervous system and the nerves. Then it moves into Cancer, ruling the feminine, nurturing areas of the stomach, womb, breasts, breastbone and the digestive system. Lastly, it finishes just in Leo, ruling the spine, heart, upper back and spleen. We may feel things more emotionally in these areas when the Moon is in their sign.

Sun in Gemini | Moon in Pisces, Aries & Taurus

We can release all that no longer works for us, by the stretching, strengthening and grounding of our practice. The Sun (Ha) is in airy Gemini; the sign of the twins it is about duality, or pairs: it rules the shoulders, where we carry responsibility, the arms, hands and fingers with which we express ourselves. The Moon starts off in watery Pisces and we can feel quite ungrounded at this time, so it's important to focus on the feet, keeping them firmly on the ground. Next, the Moon moves into Aries, ruling the head and mind. When we are relaxed in our mind we are relaxed in our body and vice versa.

Sun in Gemini | Moon in Sagittarius, Capricorn & Aquarius

We can release emotions that no longer works for us, by the stretching, strengthening and grounding of our practice, so allowing us the strength to move forward. The Sun (Ha) is in airy Gemini; the sign of the twins it is about duality, or pairs: it rules the shoulders, where we carry responsibility, the arms, hands and fingers with which we express ourselves, the lungs, the source of the breath and so life, the thymus gland, the upper ribs and, lastly, the nerves and the central nervous system that runs parallel to the spine, where the dualities meet to centre us. The Moon (Tha) starts off in Sagittarius ruling the thighs and femur, giving us structure and power to move forward but with the hips guiding our direction.

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.
