    Living according to Dharma

    This past weekend I attended a wonderfully inspiring workshop on the Bhagavad Gita, one of the central source texts of yoga. Its compelling story sets the stage for timeless spiritual guidance on how to fulfil one’s highest life purpose as well as how to determine the right choice to make in tricky circumstances. This is known as dharma, and it’s so…

    Comings & goings above & below

    Today’s Full Moon is also known as the Strawberry Moon, which sounds far more charming than many of us are likely to be feeling around this time. Saturn is conjunct this Moon in Capricorn, which is ruled by Saturn. The moon, representing our emotions and mind, is not comfortable in get-to-the-point Capricorn. This suggests we won’t want to feel difficult…

    What have I done?! New Moon in Gemini

    Gemini is very much about being in the present moment, and tuning in to navigate your way through change will help keep you afloat in these confusing times.  The next two weeks until the full moon have the energy of being true to ourselves, and expressing ourselves emotionally in our relationships – or perhaps just feeling emotional – can be…

    What can we rely upon anymore?

    I have a morbid compulsion to follow the news, and it’s possibly my greatest ongoing spiritual practice. I suspect it replaced my earlier most-intense-practice which was raising kids, and since now that my children are young adults(-ish) we each have more breathing space, I guess I unconsciously found something else to test me. A spiritual practice is indeed indispensible given…

    A Full Moon Full of Optimism

    Today’s Full Moon in Sagittarius is a culmination point of the past two weeks, as well as a final phasing out of the challenges we faced while Saturn was in that sign between late 2014 and the end of last year. I’m pretty happy to be done with that period, which brought a number of Saturnian restrictions to my health…

    Come back home.

    I have arrived, I am home In the here, in the now. I am solid, I am free. In the ultimate, I dwell. ~ Thich Nhat Hanh Lately, unrelated to my work, I’ve been coming across a lot of people who are feeling overwhelmed by social or personal circumstances, and trying to find a way forward. As my teacher says:…

    Can you spare any change?

    “Travel light; arrive quickly.” ~ Sathya Sai Baba The only constant is change, nothing lasts forever, and this, too, shall pass. We have all heard these and similar phrases our whole life, yet we rarely take them to heart. We still cling to who and what we love, and can’t bear to let them go. Change is difficult. To avoid…

    A Uranian impetus for change at this New Moon in Taurus

      Big things are happening this week! Taurus likes security and predictability and usually resists change, but the energy this week is going to (yet again!) stimulate a long cycle of unavoidable and probably long overdue upheavals and changes in our personal and collective lives, so keep a flexible contingency plan in mind for whatever you’ve got in the works…
