Abhikrama – first step
«In this endeavor there is no loss or diminution, and a little advancement on this path can protect one from the most dangerous type of fear» (Bhagavad-gītā, 2.40).
Abhikrama, which here translates as “effort”, “trying to”, generally indicates a beginning, an attempt, an enterprise, an initiative.
We usually give a negative meaning to the word crisis, but for the ancient Greeks as well as for the Chinese, the crisis was something positive: it included the ability to overcome an obstacle, to make a qualitative leap. You can’t go on or improve if you don’t question what you have or are now.
For some time now I have been suggesting you to reflect on yourself, Sagittarius, and I hope that, if you have done so, your ideas have cleared up a bit. There is still uncertainty and confusion in your head, fears of making mistakes or the same mistakes of the past, regrets for what was or for what could have been. Watch out for this crisis, because if elaborated well, already at the end of the month it could reveal interesting implications!
Utphala-āsana, the great leap
To leap up, you must first push down.
What would you like to change in your life or in you? Think about it, there is probably something you are already doing in that direction. Observe it in every daily gesture.
