Sama yoga in astrology
On a practical level how do we achieve this? Lord Patanjali in his sutras on the art, science and philosophy of yoga and the great and ancient wisdom of the Vedas has given us the tools to do just that. As the body is the greatest manifestation of our subtlest being, our soul, asanas postures are the place to start from. Working through the asanas in a mindul and present way helps to calm the mind and focus it on the task at hand - a particular asana. This is no more apparent than when we are with others. So at this time, practising your yoga with someone else will definitely be adding harmony to your personal world.
As we already know the moon sequence brings balance to the emotions and calms troubled waters, follow this with a gentle sitting twist to allow peace to flow through the chakra system in an uninterrupted flow to the heart and then to the brow centre. The new moon falls in Taurus on the 26th April, and as the moon excels in this sign it is a perfect time to start a new big project or sort out your personal finances. Taureans love counting money! The other notable planetary affect on humanity this month, is Mercury turning retrograde on 9th April through to 3rd May.

Spring is on the way! This month the moon is full in the sign of Virgo on the 12th March. Virgo is an earth sign and people born under this star sign are often known for their meticulous nature and attention to detail. They are the analysts of the zodiac and will often pick up on the tiniest of details that most people overlook. This can make them seem critical but often it is because they can spot the mistakes.
This month the moon in Virgo could keep you busy for the day trying to perfect that email or fine detail every task, maybe even looking at others with a little critical judgement not normally present. Start the day with a relaxing yoga practice that sets the mind at ease and brings peace down in abundance. A sequence such as the Seat of Compassion works wonders on the pranic body as well as bringing positive feelings and thoughts into your consciousness.
Virgo energy can often reduce our confidence, so on this full moon, complete the simple tasks on the to do list. Enjoy the fresh air and take time to plan a deep relaxation into the day. It is worth mentioning that the Sun and Mercury are conjunct on the 6th march.
The Sun will boost the ego — self esteem and Mercury will increase good communication at this time. Sometimes however when a planet is close to the Sun it becomes combust or burnt up so you may find that communication instead of being positive and full of harmony is confusing and unclear.
The bridge pose helps the throat centre and may be a good pose to start this day, enjoying clarity and good communication all day as a result. Venus turns retrograde on the 4th March until 15th April during which time it is beneficial to review how you view your relationships. This can also be used to review the areas of your life too especially your relationship with money. The new moon this month falls in the sign of Aries, you may recall Aries being full of passion and get up and go. Well all that planning that you may have been doing during the eclipses in February needs to be put into action at this time.
It is such a good time to start projects and to take action, so all those reflectors out there, put down your notebooks and believe your planning is good enough. The Dru Power Sequence will definitely empower those projects at this time! To ensure the fire signs amongst you do not get too fiery, it may be useful to practice EBR 3 as well to attune the Pranamaya Kosha and Manomaya Kosha layers of your being.
Then your actions will be born out of purpose to add peace to the world. Full moon in Leo on the 11th comes just after a lunar eclipse on the 10th in fact they are almost together. This is an interesting time as the eclipse could be considered a new start. So we could reset our thinking and let go of emotions that do not serve us at this time. This is particularly useful if you put your attention onto your relationships, whether they are work or family or close friends, it is the perfect time for a fresh start. The eclipse will also reveal those relationships which may be in need of rebalancing so that those imbalances are replaced with harmonious interactions.
The moon is in the sign of Leo. Leo is a fire sign and is magnanimous in nature, larger than life but the eclipse will be felt more than the influence of any Leo traits this time around, although beware everyone may still want to be in charge of something! Things to watch for will be dynamics between people, at home at work etc. Those of you who are fire signs, good to practice the Earth Sequence. For a week before the full moon and a few days afterwards. The new Moon on the 26th February is in the sign of Pisces, some traits associated with Pisces include empathic, friendly often selfless and willing to help others, they are particularly intuitive and often artistic, sometimes they can seek attention a little too much and could be considered indecisive or lazy.
Accompanying this new moon is a solar eclipse again this time becomes more powerful. New moon can become a new start which is perfect to build on the opportunities created by the full moon earlier in the month. It is great to look at old patterns of behaviour and find new inventive ways of changing those patterns into something very positive and joyful for your journey over the next year.
Yoga practices that would help to create new positive habit patterns include, The Energy Block release sequences used in Dru, particularly EBR 3 as this sequence transforms stuck energy to the heart, where you can direct it towards a higher goal. One thing to also consider this month is the planet Jupiter turning retrograde from the 6th February until the 9th June. Jupiter the planet of luck and expansion is giving you these few months to really establish your plans for success and happiness, Jupiter retrograde helps to recognise areas in your life you would like to develop and gives you the tools to achieve this.
Meditation is a magical key here, particularly meditations on the Heart Chakra. It is also very useful to keep a journal of your own life goals and ambitions. What is it you have come to this earth to complete?

Now that is a good question. This month the full moon still arises in the sign of cancer as it did in December.
We have looked at the qualities of the full moon in Cancer last month, but during January there is also the influence of the astrological sign of Capricorn to consider. Capricorn is slow and steady but ambitious and successful, slightly serious natured but brings discipline, this is such a good sign to have at the beginning of the year when we make new commitments to our practice ditching the old patterns and embracing positive practices to enhance our lives.
It is a great time for focusing on goals, career, ambitions and producing results. Capricorn is a reflective sign and builds on success and outcomes before embarking on new ideas, so those of us who like to forge ahead may find ourselves being held back a bit. Great to use Pranayama techniques during this full moon on the 12th January, keep balanced so emotions do not bubble up. EBR 7 is an incredible tool for really balancing out the chakra system, followed by some wonderful Deep Yogic Breathing will help this full moon pass without incident.
Otherwise that Cancerian emotion meets that stubborn will not move earth quality of Capricorn. The new moon is just after midnight on the 28th of January in Aquarius. Aquarius prepare for change at a moments notice! What we think we may have planned may not be in our control at this new moon, flow with it. The flowing Moon Sequence will pour cool clarity into your life, along with the brilliant pose Adha Chandra asana. Aquarians are the new age thinkers of the horoscope, it is said they think in the future.
This is a wonderfully original sign that at its best has great skills socially and have very creative ideas. Aquarians are truthful affectionate and imaginative. On the other side they can be unpredictable, unreliable, stubborn and indecisive. It is important at this new moon to flow, not to get stuck in what you want to happen, allow the universe to bring joy into your life by using one of the on-line meditations on light or breath. Once mercury turns direct on the 8th things ease, even better in the western horoscope Mercury moves into Capricorn on the 12th which greatly improves our time management skills and helps us to overcome difficulties we may be experiencing with colleagues at work.
Inversions also help at this time as our thinking and communication is directly linked to the planet mercury so it is useful to have a clear head! Try the shoulderstand , if that is too difficult try Viparita Karani the supported shoulderstand and rest in this pose before you sleep at night. The moon is in its own sign this month as it is full in the sign cancer on the 14th December.
Cancer is the 4th sign of the zodiac, a cardinal water sign, cancerians are considered the experts when it comes to homemaking and can be fierce defenders of their family and loved ones. Those with a strong influence of cancer in their chart tend to be more emotional than the rest of the zodiac, as cancerians have the whole range of emotions available to them to choose from in any one moment. Some qualities of the sign of cancer include, tenacity, creativity, spontaneity and loyalty, they love to take care of people but beware cancerians are often moody and can be considered pessimistic at times.

During this coming full moon it may be good to look at your work-life balance for the next few weeks, is it balanced? Are you able to enjoy your life with your loved ones and friends? You may just want to curl up with a good book by the fire in this cold weather, it is also good to increase your practice of pranayama particularly Alternate Nostril breath for these winter months to keep your internal fire nice and balanced.
To help the flow of prana in your body focus on using postures that activate the whole of the spine, the sitting spinal twist is a great posture for awakening prana and getting it flowing up and down the spine. Use the twist to focus on the lower mid and upper part of the spine and put your attention on each chakra in turn. The sign of Capricorn is on the opposite side of the zodiac to cancer, it is cardinal Earth sign. The typical Capricorn will exhibit the following qualities: cautious and conservative, very determined, practical and helpful. Can also be stubborn materialistic has a tendency to procrastinate and distrust others.
Unlike the spontaneity of the Cancerian, the Capricorn loves to plan things in advance and loves routine organisation and stability. The new moon is sometimes not the best time to make decisions as these decisions make come from our unconscious habitual drives, instincts and cravings. It is a good time to listen to what your body wants rather than reach for another chocolate or cake.
It is a wonderful time for letting go of the old and embracing the new, but also a time for relaxation at enjoyment with family and friends. Sometimes our yoga does get put on the shelf during the festive season, even a gentle EBR 1 before bed can put your whole body, heart mind back into perfect balance.

I have to mention that once again Mercury turns retrograde on 19th December until 8th January I believe this timing is perfect to let go of technology too much to relax, not put too much stress on your self with impossible deadlines and to get out onto the earth. It may be cold but if the weather is sunny take that opportunity to spend 20 minutes bathing in light.
It is also really useful to practice Tratak during the darker months.
