Monday 10th October 7.54 am
Aries is the beginning of the Zodiac cycle, a fire sign and in Australia spring is the start of the seasonal cycle.
It’s a good time to “spring” into or start something. You may
find you are already feeling its effects and have more motivation and plans for the coming months.
But this is the Full Moon Cycle which means it is time to let something go, to nurture, to look inwards. Fire is all about change or transformation…wood
to smoke. The energies are very supportive as this Full Moon is harmonising with the planets Venus, Saturn and Mars. What needs to change?
After the Full Moon our yoga practice should be more Yin & Restorative Yoga.
1/Three yoga asana for
nourishment and self nurturing.
Sphynx - Sitting Twist - Child
Try this beautiful class everyone loved at my Patonga Yoga Retreats
Heart of Yoga
3/Practice the lovely Shanka Mudra which alleviates problems caused by too much "heat" in the body. Cooling and calming.
4/ Chant RAM
5/ Practice Samana Vayu or nourishing breath See Yellow Stone Meditation Free Meditations
6/ Light a candle and practice Tratak – a powerful yet simple meditation. “Energetically it works as a powerful psychic cleanser for the third
eye chakra. It stimulates the pineal gland producing melatonin which helps regulate sleep patterns” From the cleansing Power of Yoga by Swami Saradananda who I am honoured to have as my yoga mentor.
Full Moon in Aries will happen every spring
and is a great time to "gently" cleanse and detox your body. The fire element is connected to digestion and nourishment, for more information see October Newsletter

The shadow emotion of the fire element is shame. Think about it as you watch the flame, what memories surface? Allow them and when you are ready blow the flame out. Watch anger, rage, irritability,
frustration. Study them within you, notice what makes you react, flare up, judge.
You are learning you are not your emotions. You have the strength to sit with them, experience them and know they will pass.
Have a beautiful Full Moon in Aries...go
out and watch her slowly, gracefully, light up your evening. Water the seeds of your positive emotions often.
Crystal - Sunset Aura
Shiny, bright, artificial. The outside image of our time.
But hold her lovingly to the light and you are
So much depth, beauty and cloudy skies.
Each ending has a new beginning. I move inwards and feel my inner beauty, preparing myself, enjoying this moment.
