“The Phoenix rises from the ashes of the past. You, too, can recreate yourself and make a fresh start. You can experience a Brilliant Breakthrough. That is this Full Moon’s message.”
Ha – Sun Tha – Moon Yoga – to connect
Hatha Yoga is to connect and balance the elements of the sun and moon that lies within us. In the early morning hours there was a full moon lunar eclipse. This astrological event is both mysterious and powerful. The energy of the full moon reminds us that we are complete, whole and abundant exactly as we are. As the full moon reflects the brillance of the sun, our energetic, powerful “Ha”, sun element shines through and lights up our receptivity “tha” moon energy. The sun and moon are deeply connected as is illustrated as the earth moves in front of the sun and changes the color of the white moon to a dark red filtering a small amount of sunlight on its surface. This ha and tha energy within us are deeply connected as well.
The full moon reminds us that all that has occured within our lives in the last month has led up to this moment. It is a time to sit back, watch, allow and let it all be. There are times for action in our lives and a time to let go. Within our asana practice there are times of expending great effort to release energy, wake up our bodies and quiet our minds. There are also times when we hold the pose, release in relaxation, sit still, let go and trust the process. This ebb and flow, giving and receiving creates the balance we so long for in our lives. We simply cannot hold on to pleasure or force pain to go away, try as we might, we must accept as best we can the process. Just as the moon cannot possibly hold on to its fullness or emptiness, we must let go and allow our lives to unfold; trusing the phases of waining, waxing and fullness to bring us to wholeness again.
