At the peak of your activity!

«All the arts acquired by men are lost by lack of practice, but this art of wisdom grows steadily once it rises» (Yoga-vāsistha-sāra, 1.13).

The most beautiful gift that yoga can give is awareness. By practicing āsanas, prānāyāmas, meditation, you acquire an awareness of body, breath and mind that is impossible to forget. You may no longer have a toned body due to lack of training, but the recognition of a contracted muscle or a quick breath will never be erased once acquired. Awareness is the only exercise that you carry with you outside of the mat and it is the only one to become spontaneous, natural, “effortless” as according to yoga practice should be.

All of this applies to you, Libra, because this February you will probably be well aware of what you are doing. The Sun in trigon helps you take stock of the direction you are taking and determine how your project will be. Given the position of the Sun and the favor of Mercury, that gives you clear ideas and good communications, Mars opposition is likely to express itself in its best aspect bringing you to the peak of your activity. You just have to be careful, Libra, not to give in to Venus indolence. A certain discipline will help you to contain the laziness, the slaughter that Saturn could give you (especially for those born in the second decade) and Uranus surprises (for those born in the third).

Just a few exercises a day to stay positive and active:

Ardha-Matsyendra-āsana, half Matsyendra pose. The pose makes you feel a sense of pride and dignity, giving you joy and good mood. // 1-2 min. per side.

Vīrabhadra-āsana, second variation. Vīrabhadra is one of Śiva’s terrifying forms, a symbol of strength, determination and self-assertion. It’s a pose of courage and action, that’s what you need to launch yourself into any endeavour. // 1-2 min. per side.

Garuda-āsana, eagle pose. Focus on what you want, set your goals even if they seem to be far away. // 1 min per side.

TOTAL TIME: from 12 to 13 minutes.

MANTRA of the MONTH: «I believe in my projects».
