New Moon in Taurus Self Care Ritual - Time to Shake Things Up

The new moon falls on the 15th May at 13.47 CET in Taurus this month, the second earth sign of the Zodiac.  This new moon is very potent, powerful and a facilitator for great transformation.   

"PAT LILES from The Power Path.com shares: 

"New Moon is a big day for Taurus! Yes, the Moon and Sun conjunct here, and at the moment of New Moon reset, Uranus is still in Aries at 29º59’ (hanging on by a fingernail so we get some last minute wisdom from Aries).  More significantly, some three hours later, Uranus changes signs moving into Taurus for seven years.  Uranus, that bringer of disruption, change, revolution, and innovation, was last in Taurus in 1935 ~ the birth of Social Security and a time of big adjustments on the material plane for many.”

10 Reasons Why Everyone Should Have Their Own Life Coach

Have you ever worked with a life coach?  Do you think that you shouldn't need to work with one because you are a yoga teacher and surely you should know what you are doing with your life? I used to think like this. Life coaches were for people who were having a life crisis. Life coaches were not for people who were succeeding at life. My view changed after participating in a life coaching session on abundance and my relationship with money shifted dramatically. I now speak with my coach on a regular basis.

This new moon falls on the 15th February at 22h05 (+1hrGMT) in Aquarius, the water bearer.  Aquarius is the innovator and helps us to break down traditional perhaps outdated ways of thinking so that we can navigate and create new patterns of existence. The solar eclipse takes place at 21h51 (and so not visible in Europe) almost at the same time as the new moon.  This solar eclipse is the climax of the lunar eclipse that took place two weeks ago.  We have been experiencing a period of waiting and great healing enabling us with the space to birth the new.

Keeping #YogaSober

Dear Yoga Teacher,

I’ve got something I need to say to you and I’m going to sound like a party pooper.

Please correct me if I’m wrong, but I can’t remember reading anywhere in the Bhagavad Gita that a fine glass of Merlot goes down well after a challenging Vinyasa class and I don’t think Patanjali was ever found to be swigging on a beer during practice.
