Hello Ashtanga Yoga Community!
This is the First NEW MOON DAY of 2012!
And what a Beautiful Day it is here in Victoria BC!
So... where do we find this New Moon today?
It shows up in the sign of Aquarius - deeming 2012 as the Year of TRUTH!
The New Moon is the time of the month when we do not see the moon in the sky.
It is traditionally a day of rest from our physical Asana Practice, and is a wonderful time for introspection and personal reflection (pratyahara) and meditation (dhyana).
The energies during the time of the new moon are best utilized for NEW BEGINNINGS.
There is a much higher chance of anything planted or started during this time to come to fruition, and this gives us a great opportunity to plant new seeds and watch what grows in every area of our lives!
The New Moon this month is in the sign of Aquarius, the sign of SPIRITUAL REBIRTH.
It is ruled by the planet Uranus - the “Awakener”- the ruler of TRUTH.
Aquarius is most associated with our Dawning Age of Freedom, Abundance, Truth, Enlightenment and Peace.
Uranus is the God of chaos, who shatters old forms to make way for new ones...
Thus, this New Moon offers a huge potential for bringing with it a wave of breakdowns and breakthroughs... so get ready!
Today is a great day to ask yourself: What is you truth and Are you ALIGNING yourself with it?
Maybe you will have the opportunity find some quiet time to reflect on what opportunities are available to you right now?
One of my favorite questions has always been... "What would you dare to dream and do if you knew you could not fail?"
So, why not take some time today to get quiet, and set some intentions for the Year to Come...
Plant some seeds, Awaken some dreams, Listen to your Inner Truth, and begin to move in a Conscious way along your Chosen Path!
This New Moon Energy is here to help you today - so get to it!
What are you waiting for?-!!
