«If the soul (Ātmā) is transcending Gunas, immaculate, everblissful, devoid of old age, immortal, then O father, what is being born or destroyed and where it stays after death» (Vasistha -Samhitā, V.2).

Romantic thoughts!

Venus is still in a good position for Cancer, which can ensconce itself in the romantic existential ideals, like a proper Romantic thinker of the nineteenth century. Saturn in opposition brings thoughts on old age and death, while Neptune trine lets a high sense of spirituality get in. Jupiter and Venus are friends and give a little relief, but be careful not to lose your head in the clouds.

Gunas are the ways of existence of matter. Anything in the world can be in a state of inertia and / or decay (tamas) or of great energy and / or accelerated movement (rajas) or in perfect balance (sattva). The yogi pursues the state of sattva, which is the closest to the Purusha (Spirit).

As for general health, however, it may be necessary to compensate for an excess of tamas with a sprint of rajas or vice versa to curb activity with a bit of healthy idleness.

In your case, Cancer, the risk now is falling into the tamas. Keep active. Download a bit of mental energy through the body. Help yourself with this short sequence:

Trikona-āsana, triangle pose. Lateral poses are known as the aerobic positions of yoga for their action on the heart. // 1-2 min. per side.

Pārśvakona-āsana, side angle. Even more stimulation for your heart, as well as a good work on the base to keep you with your feet on the ground. // 1-2 min. per side.

Pārśvottāna-āsana, intense stretch to the side. Always firmly grounded on your legs, lower your head and hold your concentration to find inner and outer balance. // 1-2 min. per side.

TOTAL TIME: from 6 to 12 minutes.
