Cancer In Her Element…
This is the astrological sign most aligned with home, family and the nest, and as such you’ll often find Cancer’s in the caretaking or people focussed positions – cooking, childcare, human resources and counselling. See all the posts on Cancer, here.
Cancer is the motherer, and its correlation with the body – the astrological parts of the body ruled by Cancer – are the stomach, womb, breasts and chest.
A Yoga Sequence for Cancer Season
Yoga For Cancererians
To absorb self-nurturing, try the cobra pose.
This back bend brings the chest up and forward, opening the heart. Lie belly down on the floor, with legs straight back and tops of the feet on the floor. Spread your fingers on the floor under your shoulders, hugging elbows into your body. As you breathe in, straighten the arms to lift the chest off the floor.
Focus on opening the chest with nurturing breath and soft awareness.
Don’t forget to take some time to meditate at the end of your practice.
