We are a week into the Sun’s journey through Pisces – the last sign of the zodiac. Diffused, dreamy, unfocused Pisces. From the Pisces part of the sky we are offered the overview. This week it may feel chaotic as the Sun continues to travel close to foggy Neptune. Messages from the unconscious will be strong — in dreams, meditations, yoga nidra, time spent in nature or just free floating.
As we build to next Thursday’s full moon continue to explore places of possibility. Mercury the messenger is picking up speed and half of the planets have moved into fire signs. There is an urgency. The illuminating qualities of this full moon will be very strong. Inspiration plentiful. You’ll know what to do. Resist the temptation to go it alone and surround yourself with souls who also have a productive vision for harnessing this sky full of fire.
Ground the energy of this fast moving time with a simple yoga pose — 5 Pointed Star. Stand tall and step your feet wide apart. Lengthen your spine by pointing your tailbone toward the earth and reaching the crown of your head up towards the sky. Lift your chin slightly. Arms stretch out wide at shoulder height (as if you were trying to reach the walls on either side of you). Palms face down. Take a deep breath in and imagine you are breathing in through the soles of your feet. As you exhale imagine you are exhaling through your palms. Repeat 2 more times and then reverse. Take a breath in through your palms and exhale through your feet. Repeat twice.
Finish by stepping feet together and standing with eyes closed in Mountain Pose for a breath or two. When you are ready, open your eyes and gaze out ahead with clarity and confidence.
Your Yoga Nidra practice will be especially powerful this week. Join me Sunday evening, March 1 at Kneading Hands in Southbury, CT for a special journey. Details attached.
