Autumnal Equinox: Yoga and More!

The Autumnal Equinox is upon us! This is the time of year to pull your energy inward and appreciate all that you have.  The equinoxes (Vernal and Autumnal), are two out of the four most powerful times of the year. Below, you'll find three videos discussing the Autumnal (Fall) Equinox, and ways you can celebrate.

 Honoring Autumn:
In my first video, I explain the energy for this time of the year and the story behind the yoga pose, Astavakrasana. My second video,  explains the 7 Leaf Boat Ceremony. From the Feng Shui Lineage, the Fall Equinox represents the trigram Dui. This trigram (in bit language), has an opening, or yin line at the top (heaven) position. In nature, it represents the lake. In life, it is our ability to create. Finally, in my third video, enjoy watching the leaf boats floating on the lake!

Autumnal Equinox Approaching

In just a few short days the fall equinox will arrive. It is the astronomical start of fall in the Northern Hemisphere and spring in the Southern Hemisphere. The word "equinox" literally means "equal night." Astronomically, the sun crosses the "celestial equator" so the two hemispheres (north and south), receive the sun's rays equally. The sun is positioned overhead at noon from a point of the equator. From this point, the amount of daytime and nighttime are relatively equal to each other. From this point forward, until the winter solstice, the nights are longer and days are shorter.

The foliage changes color due to the amount of daylight and photosynethesis that occurs. With shorter days or less sunlight, there is a chemical process that occurs causing leaves to change color and finally drop off into the gentle breeze.

From a feng shui perspective, the energy pulls inward. It is a contractive energy like that of metal. Areas of our life that are accentuated are our creativity, travel, mentoring and spirituality. You may notice the shift taking place already. For me, it is a trip to India for a Pilgrimage. 

This is also the time of year when vatta (air) is on the rise. The tendency to feel "floaty" or ungrounded is likely. Therefore, it behooves you to engage in grounding practices such as yoga, meditation, tai chi or gigong. Paying attention to your environment and incorporating more earth and metal elements bodes well to keep you grounded and intuitive.

The upcoming autumnal solstice is a wonderful time to engage in an outdoor ceremony. There are so many different ways to welcome in the change of season. There isn't any right or wrong way to do this. Later this week I will post one of my favorite ceremonies. How you decide to acknowledge the change of season is up to you, but one thing you should definitely consider is clearing your internal and external environment. My simple space clearing ceremony E-book (part of my feng shui mini-series), is stacked with helpful ways to refresh the energy in your environment and enhance it elementally through specific feng shui aspects.

I Ching Toss Guidance - Monday September 17th

The I Ching toss for today reveals hexagram 21(Shi He). The attributes include: Eradicating obstacles, judging, restoring order and confronting negativity.

This hexagram comprises Fire over Thunder, a combination evoking the lightening accompanying a thunderstorm. The image suggests the way in which nature forces through obstacles and restores imbalances of tension. Shi He advises that in human affairs problems should likewise be illuminated with the lightning flash of clear insight and shaken apart but the thunder of unleashed energy.

The shape of this hexagram also suggests an open mouth with something in it. Shi means "to bite" and He means "to close" or action to remove obstacles is reinforced by the image of biting through the obstruction.

In society such eradication of disorder must be governed by an effective and honorable justice system. Legal arguments are also suggested if the obstacle in the mouth is thought of "as words" that need to be spoken. The law must be properly administered if social harmony is to prevail. Punishment is sometimes required but must be appropriate to the crime and free from vindictiveness.

She He often portends a legal action or the appearance of a third party in a marriage or relationship, causing a disruption that will diminish in the face of patience.

How can you apply the dynamics of hexagram 21 (He Shi) to your circumstances?

Decay, Work on What Has Been Spoiled

The I Ching toss message for today is to work on what is spoiled. This hexagram comprises Mountain over Wind, which suggests a low wind being halted in its progress by the mountain's bulk. In turn, the blustering air currents destroy the plants at the foot of the mountain. Similarly, in human affairs, lax attitudes create problems, which accumulate and introduce corruption into the community.

This hexagram advises us to look for such defects in ourselves and in our environment and to take steps to repair the damage at the root so it does not recur. Whether the problems are caused by old bad habits, character defects, or poor organization, unless they are dealt with at the core level the cycle will continue to repeat disastrously.

This hexagram strongly advises to turn over a new leaf, but it also advises caution and clear thought both before and after change is implemented. There is no point in change if it sacrifices long-term benefits for short-term gain. Correctly identifying and dealing with areas of degeneration and chaos will, however, clear the way to rebirth and great success.

In business, this hexagram warns of poorly organized finances; in relationships, conflicts caused by differing temperaments and lifestyles; and in health, troubles from impurities and parasites.

September: Refining, Evolving & Managing Change

Refining, Evolving, Managing Change

September: Refining, Evolving & Managing Change

Refining, Evolving and Managing Change is the theme for the month of September. Yin metal is the overwhelming quality element for this month. Yin metal sits above the Yin Metal Rooster branch while the Yin Metal trigram (Dui) flies overhead on the loshu grid.  The metal or air element is associated with autumn - the time of harvest, changes and reflection.

In today's newsletter, I'll review the qualities of the energy combinations and the best way to navigate through them.

Elevate Your Consciousness!

Mary Jane

Refine - Evolve - Change:

This month the 7 metal (Dui)  trigram representing the lakes upon the earth, moves to the center of the Lo Shu grid. Seven metal is an accumulator so changes and experiences are readily available to those who are open to what the world offers.

This is a month to accumulate knowledge and material wealth. In doing so, however, requires reflection and the ability to take on challenges that occur when circumstances change. Maintaining a strong bond with your past assists with challenges that arise. Stick to your roots and it will act as a buffer as you move through these changes and refine your vision. Maintaining a "work hard, play hard" philosophy of life will keep you in touch with your childlike nature - a perfect blend with Dui trigram's nature.

 Seven Metal Dui is not an initiator or very good with completing tasks. However, it is an energy that is fantastic when it comes to evaluating processes and setting standards. When it comes to business this month, you want to seek change. Notice the subtle trends and patterns that are building and forge ahead with them.

In terms of the spiritual matters this month, the I Ching trigram for seven metal is the joyous lake (Dui). Like a calm, cool lake it is characterized by a gentle calm exterior and a strong, deep interior. It is important to cultivate time and space for quietness. Pranayama (breathing practices),  are very useful this month to calm the mind and body. Once the mind is calm, it is like the lake able to calm down so the reflection of the surface can then be contemplated. You are able to see things more clearly and cultivate wisdom from the depths of your awareness.

In terms of health this month, the element of metal is primarily associated with the lungs, colon and skin. The skin acts as a protective barrier as the season changes, while the colon acts as an interior protective barrier, and the lungs as a way of adjusting to the changes of temperature and amount of respiratory input for the body. The body can easily feel ungrounded and the mind unfocused during this metal/air (vatta) month. Therefore, meditation practices become even more important to center and ground the mind and body. It is also beneficial to loofa when bathing this month to stimulate the skin and activate the lungs. Little or no dairy is best to decrease the amount of mucus. A diet rich in fiber will bode well for the intestinal tract. Try to avoid raw foods and frozen foods that can easily upset the microbes of intestinal flora.

Yin Metal Rooster Branch:

September is also the month of the Rooster. Finances are a center of attention - sorting them out and guarding "the money." Setting up a budget this month for finances and your time is extremely beneficial. Organizing those loose papers and receipts is a must this month. It will put things in proper perspective.

The Rooster has a predilection for controversy; therefore, you may notice unrest on a personal level and in general. It is best to take a softer approach with all matters this month while paying attention to details. It is also important to be realistic with your goals and avoid being over ambitious, as disappointment can easily follow.

The 7 metal star represents the west portent of your environment. Here are a few pointers for this direction:
  • Add a strong earth or metal qualities such crystals, stones, or metal objects. This will naturally build and assist the quality of this portent which represents childlike joy.  
  • Incorporate circular or demi-lune shapes to further activate the support of metal.
  • An image of joy or whatever makes your heart sing bodes well to remind you of the child within. You can also place an image of a serene lake as a reflective quality to move through change.

 Other Areas of Concern:
When seven-metal is the highlight trigram for the month, the remaining trigrams move to different positions. On a very basic level, we are able to see how other aspects of our life take on this moving energy. Here are some things to consider:
  • When it comes to family and health this month there is some chaos. Best to be diligent with diet and mindful meditation practice.
  • Seek a financial advisor this month to evaluate your holdings.
  • Evaluate your mission and make sure there is room for a joyful/playful approach.
  • Helpful people/mentors are a plus this month when it comes to opportunity and resources that directly impacts finances. This is especially so for male.
  • Windfalls in career this month but not without legal parameters and possible disagreements.
  • Meditation practice reveals clarity for long-terms strategies. This is important as there is some questioning as to your path.

Yoga Poses:

Helpful poses for the Metal trigram this month are as follows:
  • Masyatsana (Fish)
  • Ardha Matsyendrasana (Seated Twist)
  • Sukasana - Easy Pose
  • Sarvangasana - Shoulder Stand
  • Alternate Nostril Breathing

The month of Finances. Enjoy my Breathing Wealth Meditation.
