This week’s yoga and astral insights 07.12.20

This week we are sandwiched between eclipses. Last Monday we had a full moon eclipse in Gemini and next Monday a total solar eclipse with the new moon in Sagittarius.

This whole year has been about falling structures, preparing us for the Age of Aquarius. As we all are at different stages in this massive transition, it is important to be in, or as close as possible to, our truth.
This week offers a perfect opportunity for us to check where we are right now: are we aligned to our truth? how much of it is pretenses and instagram stories and how much is real? how much are we trying to fool ourselves? Sitting in conversation with ourselves so we can discern and unpack, breaking down the rest of those old structures which still need to fall – this is the week to reflect and journal in preparation for the eclipse. Are you ready to be completely honest with yourself?

We are in the month of Sagittarius now, which in the Kabbalah is referred to as the month of miracles, meaning that there can be leaps in consciousness. This is a time of the year in which we tend to look back and take account of what has gone on, which helps to put things into perspective as we approach the new year with more of an open mind.

December 10th the Sun in Sagittarius trines Mars in Aries bringing in some wonderful energy to go out there and launch a new project which is great! However, breathe with this, prepare and keep working behind the scenes and launch after the eclipse next Monday, when there’ll be no more bumps in the road!

Last but not least, Venus is in Scorpio and from December 10th-15th will sextile Pluto, Jupiter and Saturn in Capricorn. This means that there is something you really desire, deep down, which if properly aligned with your truth and intention is already starting to manifest, starting to form behind the scenes. Now remember that a wish requires a commitment and therefore some level of sacrifice… Is this truly what you desire and, if so, are you prepared to commit to it?

Great week for yoga, meditation, journaling and soul searching in preparation for the eclipse next week.

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.

The only way out is through

robert frost

The protagonist of this week is definitely Uranus. This is the planet of sudden awakenings, shaking us out of our security and routines and not in a gentle manner. Uranus helps us to elevate our conscience so if we are able to see these unexpected ‘surprises’ for what they are and stay calm(ish) through the storm we will make it through the other side, richer and wiser.

Today, Mars (who is retrograde in Aries) trines the south node and sextiles the north node – the karmic nodes – for the second time this year. The first time this happened was August 22nd, so see if you can go back in time and recall what was happening then in regards with new opportunities coming your way in the form of connections with certain individuals, conversations or meetings… perhaps you were not happy with the results back then and, if that is the case, this is your chance of stepping back (Mars retrograde), correct what needs to be changed and do it in a different way.

Tomorrow Wednesday we have Mercury in Scorpio (this is Mercury in detective mode, deep research) opposing Uranus retrograde in Taurus. This aspect is to do with deep research, tests, deep analysis; these could be physical, psychological or of any kind. By researching and looking deeper you might find something you have not seen before and this finding will change your narrative. Being Uranus it will be surprising news, so it is important to take some distance and not react (Mars retrograde). Looking at things from a different perspective by detaching yourself from a situation, will help you understand the bigger picture. This is an excellent aspect to break an attachment or an addiction, of course we all know this won’t happen in a day, but it is a great moment to make that decision and step into it. This aspect will happen again on October 19th as Mercury will be retrograding and you should be able to understand things much better then.

And Friday, we have Mars retrograde in Aries squaring (for the second time) Pluto, now direct, in Capricorn. Again, going back to the first time this square took place, around August 11-17, and looking at what was happening around that time, something which moved you in an emotional and psychological way, deeply. This might have brought out your dark side or shadow (Pluto -> things happening under the surface, the unseen). This second time around there is a chance to understand this a little bit better, a second chance to react differently and make some changes to obtain a different result.

There is a lot of opportunity this week to take perspective and change things. Being able to learn from our mistakes will bring big rewards as we can change things by changing our reactions.

Hello September!

Harvest MOON

September kicks off with the Harvest Full Moon tonight. With the Sun in Virgo and the Moon in Pisces, tonight’s full moon is about clarity and opening our eyes to see the full picture of a situation. As the moon sextiles Uranus, our ‘surprise!’ planet, this clarity will come in the form of unanounced ‘aha!’ moments which may seem to come out of nowhere – so tonight is a great time to meditate and calm our mind so our subconscious can rise and we can feel what is.

Tonight Slow Flow Yoga (Moon Flow) class will be themed around this Full Moon in Pisces and will end in a guided Yoga Nidra (yogic sleep) to help you get to the right depths of relaxation, calm your nervous system and allow the magic to happen. This nourishing, mainly restorative practice will ground you and help release blockages so the Full Moon’s energy can do the work while you lay down ready to receive. You can book for tonight’s session here.

September new classes

Level 2 Improvers will be back Tuesday evenings at 7pm from September 15th. This class is for those who have a good yoga foundation and want to take a more challenging class.

Lunchtime Yoga is back Mondays and Wednesdays at 1pm starting from Wednesday September 16th. A half an hour pick me up to put your body and mind in a better place. This class is aimed to those of you who work seated at a desk and can invest some lunchtime in your wellness to glide through the second part of your day revitalised and calm.

A 5 week Complete Beginners Course will be starting on September 30th at 5.30pm, then every Wednesday at the same time until October 28th. This course will be covering the basics in yoga in a friendly, down to earth environment. By the time you complete this course you should feel confident to move onto the Level 1 or Open Level classes with a clear understanding of the basic foundations in Yoga.
It is sometimes great to revisit these foundations even if you have been practising for a while, so if you feel like doing so you are welcome to join us!

Wild Yoga classes will continue until the weather doesn’t allow. Then the Saturday Wild Yoga class will become a regular Live Stream Open Level class. This will probably happen in October and therefore Wild Yoga class packs are no loger available to purchase from now on.

Best of both: New ‘hybrid’ class packs

The Glass House is now open for one to one sessions!
These can be booked individually or in packs of 5 (email me to arrange time and day and then you can purchase and book through the system). One to one tune ups are tailored specifically to your needs. These sessions can also be arranged online via Zoom if preferred.

The Hybrid Class Pack:
Online learning is great but, from time to time it is good to have a little one to one tune up in person. With this hybrid pack you get the best of both worlds: 5 online classes and a half price one to one session at the Glass House (or via Zoom if preferred).

Online Unlimited Yoga Subscription:
This monthly subscription is for those who want to make the most of the classes. If you do more than one class a week, this subscription is for you!

The One to One Class Pack:
This is a 5 x one to one pack with a heftly discount, so your personal tune ups come at just £35 each.

You can book all classes here.

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