Butterflies are so amazing! Such an interesting process of transformation: from the egg, to the caterpillar, then the chrysalis and wow… this amazingly beautiful insect, full of vivid colours… and it can fly?! Result! You’d think how lucky the caterpillar is with this transformation! BUT do not forget the chrysalis. The darkness, resting, not knowing phase… going into that abyss without knowing what is going on or when it’ll be the end of it… that death which is just a metamorphosis. A transformation into something better. Why do we resist and fear it then? Why after so many experiences we still fear the unknown?
Fear of change of course causes friction and this is the biggest source of our suffering. What if someone told us that, whatever happens, those changes will always be for the better? What if we somehow knew that, however much we enjoy where we’re at this moment, what is coming next will make us much happier, as hard as it may seem at first?
Perhaps lets take this chance to look back into our lives and review what the outcomes were after big changes, changes that we resisted. Lets check and see what happened after, how they shaped us as people and the choices we made… were we happier? what would we have done different?
This week’s yoga
All change, all change! This week’s yoga is a bit different:

There is NO class at the Whittington Park Community Association this Saturday – anyone wanting to attend classes at Goldendoor please contact me.
Wild Yoga is back!
From June 1st our Saturday morning yoga will be held outdoors at the park after last years’ success – we all felt that little bit happier after yoga with sun-kissed skin… I am considering whether we could do our Wednesday evening classes outdoors too and would love your feedback on this. Sunset yoga awaits! Of course in the event of rainy weather there’ll be alternative arrangements so you have nothing to worry about!
We’ve had an intensefull moon in Scorpio this Saturday – did you feel it? I sure did! This week is a bit more chilled out, without any strong aspects so we can exhaaaaaaale and relax! Saturn’s retrograde and this aspect may show our limitations and structures created by our thought patterns. Saturn’s also in the South Node, working through an old structure which perhaps was useful in the past but won’t be going forwards. This is a great week to communicate our loved ones the changes we are going through and our process to avoid expectations which may not be met – we all have different rhythms and cannot expect all to happen in our own timing: communication is key. The sun is in Gemini, so lets talk!
Here’s Kaypacha’s mantra for the week:
Life helps me become conscious, By giving and taking my time, Money, Love, and Energy, To show me the bottom line
