Cancer

Bhadra – auspicious

«Place the heels on either side of the seam of the Perineum, keeping the left heel on the left side and the right one on the right side, holding the feet firmly joined to one another with both the hands. This Bhadrasana is the destroyer of all diseases. The expert Yogis call this Goraksa asana. By sitting with this asana, the Yogi gets rid of fatigue» (Hathayoga-pradīpikā, 1.55-57)

I chose this āsana, Cancer, for you because of its name. It is a good omen and above all I hope you can see a good omen in what happens to you. Saturn has asked you and is asking you a lot, but Venus arrives in your sign and gives you the hope that new beginnings are always possible. If you put your pessimism aside, you will find that you can receive pleasant satisfactions and that there are many more people than you think, who appreciate you.

IN PRACTICE  

Bhadra-āsana, auspicious pose

If your knees remain very high, exercise in with a support under the buttocks. Do not spring your legs, instead concentrate on the inner adductors of the thighs and try to stretch them towards the outside with the inhalation and relax them with exhalation. Keep the column straight. Every day, take about twenty breaths in this pose.

Awareness exercise

See how people around you approach you. Look for their affection behind all their claims, even behind their criticisms or attacks. Appreciate the care they have for you.
