Aloha Yoga Kaua'i O'hana,
Once again, the holy-days are upon us. As the year comes to a close it seems inconceivable that we complete yet another decade! Although the holidays are a time when activity increases, Winter is also a season of hibernation - a time for rest and the stillness of silence to reevaluate before another cycle begins. If we proceed without restoration and reflection, we are likely to continue in a flat circle that remains at the same octave as the prior year. I hope that during the busy holidays you manage to take time for inward reflection to ascend upward in your life spiral.
Astrologers have long anticipated 2020 as significant astrological transits await us this January. The last time these transits occurred were during the American Revolution and the creation of the Declaration of Independence. The midway transit point occurred during the Civil War. The full cycle culminates in January of 2020 as Pluto, Saturn and the Moon's South Node conjunct in Capricorn. It is time we renovate outdated structures and maladaptive hierarchies. Friction invites us to innovate personal and collective political structures. When we remember our oneness our natural response is to live in harmony with nature. Until we learn to live by the laws of love, social structures will lack resilience and collapse. This stellium in Capricorn impels us to review where we consign our power and affirm whether our choices are based on love or insecurity.
We need challenges to keep us vital
Such personal and collective inquiry does not arise from simple soul-utions. The Yoga Sūtra inspire us to examine such profound questions in a way that is effective and transformative for individual and collective consciousness. We are at a turning point in which we must reaffirm our personal agency and what we hold as sacred. I can’t help but feel even deeper gratitude for the Yoga Sutra to guide us on the path of breaking off contact with unnecessary suffering and to leverage Karma with Dharma.
