This week’s yoga and astral insights 040520

Dear yogis and yoginis,

Full moon in Scorpio – artist unknown

Today we have a very favourable aspect for anything to do with communications, deals, purchases and networking as the Sun merges with Mercury. So send that message, sign that contract and make that purchase today as the sky promises a smooth going!

The biggest day of the week is Thursday as we have a full moon in Scorpio. Scorpio is a deep, deep, deeeeeeeep sign and it deals with deep (did I say this?) transformation as it is the most intense of signs (feminine, fixed, water). Scorpio will love you deeply forever and become obsessed when out of balance. This is why Scorpio is linked with addictions, jealousy, relentlessness… everything goes deep and is felt to the extreme. So, even though full moons are felt as high energy, offering revelations and clarity; this full moon may feel more introverted, asking us to dive deep into the abyss of our psyche to dig for the roots of our most hidden fears… Sounds fun? I guess it depends on how daring you feel this week. Lets prepare for this, do a little ground work first so we are connected to our cores before we do such intense work. Stay tuned as I will be posting a little ritual for Thursday’s full moon on Wednesday. Follow my blog so you don’t miss a post – I only write once or twice a week, so it won’t clog your inbox!

This week’s yoga and astral insights – Happy Beltane week!

Dear yogis and yoginis,

With Beltane, Festival of Fire, coming up this Friday, we are wanting to get a little bit more physical, swimming out of the water and stepping into the fire, we are traveling from second chakra Svadhistana which is right in the pelvic basin towards our solar plexus, Manipura chakra. Beltane is the beginning of summer and the mid point betweek the Spring Equinox and the Summer Solstice. From now on our energy will pick up with the Sun until the peak point of summer, the Solstice. Welcome sunnier, brighter days with a smile!

This week Mercury, planet of communication, passes into earthy, sensual Taurus for the next three weeks. This brings a slower, more pragmatic approach to all ways of expression, getting right to the point. Mercury will square Saturn on Tuesday so avoid having important talks, meetings or signing contracts this day as there is more chances of misunderstandings or communications going awry.

This week’s yoga and astral insights – 20.04.20

Dear yogis and yoginis,

Another week of sunshine when we are having to stay indoors, the irony of things… Or perhaps just another challenge. This week we have a Sun-Saturn square on Tuesday which may be a little patience-testing as Saturn is the planet of limitations and boundaries. My best advice? Don’t fight it, just let go and allow for those possible delays, let go of all resistance and chill out. Especially as this square is followed by a new moon in Taurus on Wednesday – mega-chill times! Taurus is a fixed, Earth, feminine sign, ruled by Venus, planet of beauty and sensuality. So think of letting go, enjoying the darkness of the black moon tonight and use this time to pamper yourself, do something creative – painting, dancing, writing… whatever calls you. Oh and, before I forget, keep connecting with nature. This time of the year everything is blossoming – Venus – so go get some flowers (potted if possible!) and bring nature into your home. Smell the flowers everyday and get that magical beautifully scented prana into your system… Bliss!

This week’s yoga and astral insights – Happy Ishtar Monday!

Dear yogis and yoginis,

The weather in the UK is being yet again amazing for Easter weekend. Last year, I was in Cornwall with Tiger, we took a train all the way there to go to the woods and the sea. We were free to do so and lucky that it was hot and sunny. This year we have spent this weekend in our garden. We did not go out to the woods or the park. And we consider ourselves lucky to have a little garden we can spend some time at. Things are very different now.

Last year, as I was following and studying astrological predictions for the ominous year 2020, I couldn’t have imagined what this years ‘huge shifts and tranformations’ were going to materialise as, or even, how they would occur in the first place. Seeing what we are going through now everything makes a lot of sense. The collective is now going through a huge karmic process. Some tough lessons we need to learn and, until we do, this is not going to get any better. Now we are forced to stay home, with ourselves, move into the yin energy and accept that this is all a result of our actions (karma). Move out of the victim mentality. Reflect. Work together as a whole, protect the vulnerable and stay strong. As a collective of humans. Tom Lescher (aka Kaypacha) talks about this in last week’s Pele report (always making it fun and a little crazy!)

This week starts with a couple of conflicting astrological alignments. We have a Sun-Pluto square tomorrow Tuesday and then a Sun-Jupiter square on Wednesday. The Sun is conjuct Eris, goddess of discord and strife. Eris is the sister of Ares (god of war), the feminine which gives birth and also takes life away. The goddess of karma. These two squares can bring in massive power struggles so it is good to start the week well balanced and at peace to manage these energies. We will we doing some great pranayama and grounding balancing poses in class this week. We want to build a steadfast mind/ body while staying soft! Things relax a bit more towards the end of the week as the Sun moves into Taurus (an earthy, materialistic and creative sign) on Sunday, so we can channel our energies into creative projects and if it’s in the garden even better!

This week’s yoga and astral insights 6.04.20 – New Lunchtime Yoga sessions!

Dear yogis and yoginis,

As time seems to blur during lockdown, discipline and a set routine become paramount in order to stay sane. So I have prepared some new classes for you to stay focused and mobile. Keep reading…

We have a Libra full moon on Tuesday! This moon is called the ‘pink moon’, not because of her actual colour but because of this is the time of the year where nature blossoms. Full moons are times where issues come to the light, times of endings and conclussions and the Libra full moon affects mainly personal and business relationships. This moon comes with a challenging alignment though, a Mars – Uranus square. Mars is the warrior, lord of war and Uranus rules sudden changes, breaking rules and independance – my personal recommendation will be to stay low during this time, away from conflict and rush decisions. The fiery energy of Mars mixed with the sudden breaking energy of Uranus can bring quite strong experiences which we may not want to live through while we are on lockdown!

There are some good news though. Last Saturday we had a Jupiter – Pluto conjunction, one of the major alignments this year as it signals large scale achievements and only happens once every 13 years. Spend this time focusing on your goals as you have Jupiter’s expansive energy and Pluto’s intensity on your side to make something really big happen.
