There is nothing that quite compares to the connection created when you help another person. There are 8 limbs of yoga, and one of them is called “Seva” which translates to “Selfless Service.” What I have realized about selfless service is that the word “selfless” is almost a misnomer, because there is nothing that nourishes the self as much as service. And when you serve in the company of other people, the friendships formed are deep and powerful and lasting.
The Moon is waning this week. She is in her last phase as she gradually gets smaller and smaller while rising later and later each night. As a result, our emotional reserves dwindle as the week progresses. Choose yoga sets that are more meditative and inward-focused as opposed to the more physically challenging ones. Also remember that Mercury is still retrograde – all this week. It is a time to turn inward, reflect on the past and get back money that is owed to you. This is not a time to sign contracts or purchase anything with electrical or mechanical parts. Communication is off in general and our minds seem to be working “in reverse”.
