This week’s yoga and astral insights 23.11.20

This week we are starting to feel the build up of energies leading up to the Full Moon Eclipse in Gemini next Monday – Gemini is ruled by Mercury, which is the protagonist this week.

Mercury is in Scorpio right now, a place where Mercury doesn’t feel very comfortable as he is the messenger and is fast moving, and Scorpio slows him down and forces him to go deep.

At the beginning of the week, Mercury trines Neptune (which is stationary in Pisces and will be going direct towards the end of the week). This creates a beautiful energy to smooth things over and open ourselves to be vulnerable within complex and difficult conversations. Neptune takes the edge off the ego which allows to drop defences and open up feeling safe to do so. Neptune is stationary this week, leaving us feeling a bit lazy, daydreaming while also opening up our creativity and inspiration.

Mercury will also sextile Jupiter (conjuncting Pluto until December 8th). This conjunction helps us move into our personal power after going through so many trials this year. We are able to bring this up in deep conversation, either with ourselves of with others, we are able to see our own resilience and feel stronger.

Next Monday we have a full moon eclipse in Gemini – Mercury rules Gemini, and he will sextile Saturn on that same day. Saturn likes order and putting things in their place. Here we have a full moon in Gemini, showing us the two sides of the coin, so we can make a decision. As there is an eclipse, there’ll be a blind spot that will be shown to us so we can then evaluate and decide.

During an eclipse it is not recommended to put crystals out to charge, set intentions or do any rituals… Just to relax and stay within.

At next week’s Moon Flow Yoga we will let go during Yoga Nidra to complete surrender to whichever issues the eclipse is wanting to show to us.
At tonight’s session, we will be preparing for this upcoming eclipse, stirring the flow of our water to open up our creative power, working with Neptune’s beautiful energy. To book for either of this sessions click here.

This week’s yoga and astral insights 16.11.20

We are approaching the end of 2020… phew! I can hear you say… It has been an intense year of looking at ourselves, personally and collectively, and we are being pushed towards taking responsibility and changing. The year is not over yet, but a lot of difficult aspects are softening now. Hurray!

We had a new moon in Scorpio yesterday, initiating a 6 month cycle until April 16th 2021 with the full moon in Scorpio.

Scorpio takes us to the deepest depth of our feelings in the darkness of a new moon. Remember that you are not your emotions, but just the one experiencing them.

Everything passes. Allow yourself to feel without fear.

We will explore this Scorpio New Moon in tonight’s Moon Flow Yoga and Yoga Nidra – a practice that nourishes your senses and allows you to go deep within, in a safe way. Deeply relaxing and restoring, Yoga Nidra or the yogic sleep, brings you to that liminal space between sleeping and waking, allowing you to safely reach parts of the unconscious, bringing healing to the soul, body and mind. You can join us tonight via Zoom by booking here.

Mars stopped retrograding last Friday and will be stationary until November 25th. This has been a period of reflection on our actions and finding out what our motor is, what is behind our actions. Now we can take our learnings and, once Mars goes direct, we can go forward with a clear direction and consciousness.

This week’s yoga and astral insights 02.11.20

Hunter’s moon

We are still feeling the effects of the powerful Hunter’s Moon in Taurus. This moon is pushing for change, bringing a very strong energy as we are being put in situations that demand radical changes. How do we deal with change emotionally? How do we cultivate trust?
Learning to be in the moment allows us to let go of depressive thoughts – attachment to the past – and letting go of anxious thoughts – worry about the future. Although it is true that everything is constantly changing – the only constant is change -, our long held sense of security, perhaps illusory to a point, is being challenged right now as we are having to change the way we live, work and be with others. Our own self-constructed and contidioned limits and boundaries are being challenged and we are being pushed to create new ways. May we find our new ways and hold eachother safe through our own trials. One thing we need to remember is that, this instability right now, is also going to change. We will get to the other side!

Mercury is goin direct tomorrow. Yay! But hold on if you have any important comms pending, wait for a few days. When Mercury starts going direct, it stays stationary for about three days. Mercury stationary can be even more tricky than Mercury retrograde, as there is no movement at all. On top of this, Mercury will square Saturn (planet of rules and limits) until November 10th, which will make negotiations and communication difficult… so be prepared!

This week’s yoga and astral insights 26.10.2020

This is my favourite time of the year as we approach Samhain or the Day of the Dead.

As the trees dress their beautiful autumn colours, they get ready to shed the ‘dead’ weight, dropping their old leaves to turn in and focus on new growth.

This is a time for us to do just that, to start shedding the old and make space for a bright new beginning. But first, we must spend the winter in the dark, doing our inner work and getting our roots strong and our trunks firm and healthy. These months ahead are a time for inner reflection in darkness, resting and nourishing our inner realms. This is the most important work, which is most times overlooked, as while it is happening we cannot see changes in the outside. But trust we must: clearing our outer and inner spaces, setting intentions and allowing moments for idleness… understanding that space has to be given for the inner workings to happen.

We have a full moon coming up for Halloween, on October 31st. This is a blue Hunter’s Moon in Taurus, one of the brightests moons in the year. The sun is in Scorpio and the moon will conjunct Uranus, the planet of the unexpected. This will bring lightening-like flashes of clarity. There is a huge illumination energy this whole week, culminating this Saturday. This is said by astrologers to be the most intense period of 2020. This full moon makes the unconscious become conscious. This is a great period to be spending time in meditation and journaling. Pay attention to your dreams as these may bring things to light.

This week’s yoga and astral insights

New moon in Libra & Mercury retrograde

This week starts with some beautiful, expanding alignments in the sky (such as Jupiter squaring the Sun), bringing in a feel-good vibe to the usually dreaded Monday.

Tuesday evening Mercury goes into stationary mode, just before going retrograde until November 3rd. This whole retrograde period, Mercury will go from Scorpio to Libra and back to Scorpio. This is a great time to go inwards (deep —> Scorpio) , looking at our communication patterns and outdated beliefs tin our relationships (Libra) , doing a deep-clean and changing those which are damaging our relations. This energy is even stronger right now as, at the beginning of its retrogradation, Mercury is stationary for a few days.

Continuing with the theme of relationships, Mars retrograde in Aries squares the Sun in Libra (Mars=Yang vs. Sun=Yang). The Sun in Libra wants harmony, balance and justice (at a collective level) while Mars retrograde in Aries is stepping back, looking for a change in conduct in regards to present events. There has to be a compromise to this change. This could be you squaring up to those old behaviours and patterns and realising how much damage these could do to a current important and cherished relationship. This may come with the realisation that you treat others the same way you treat yourself.
As not all of us are at the same level of awareness right now, some may struggle and will be fighting with themselves and within their relationships. Only by taking conscience and being aware of our own patterns of behaviour we will be able to exit some unhealthy cycles in relationships.

On Friday we have a new moon in Libra, which, amongst so many aspects in tension, may feel a little like a push, a forced new beginning – whether we learn our lessons or not. The blackmooning period – from now till the new moon – together with Mercury stationary, is a perfect time to stop and go within, journal, search for meaning, nourish your mind and soul and dive deep into the darkness to find your inner light.
Your soul knows where the answers lay, so just sit back and relax.

Tonight’s Moon Flow Yoga will prepare you for this blackmooning period, allowing you to lay back and open to that unknown scent of darkness, awakening your inner senses to reveal that which your sould deeply knows. Join us for this evening’s class, which will end in a Black Moon Yoga Nidra guided meditation, leaving you ready to enjoy a great night’s sleep where your dreams may reveal those answers to you.
You can book for this class here.

Wild Yoga will be ON this Saturday and it will be matless. I will be leadind a standing practice so you stay warm and grounded, increasing mobility, strength and flexibility as well as balance. Bring some sport, supportive trainers and layers.
You can sign up for class here.

I look forward to seeing you on the mat or the grass very soon!

Much 💙
