AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18) Have you been having problems with someone, either in person or online? If things have been rather tense, now's the time to swallow your pride and start communicating and compromising.
CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19) Are matters involving home, family, domestic arrangements, parents or property dominating your thinking? Things will gradually improve, as long as you stay centred and keep an open mind.
CANCER (June 21 - July 22) Work projects are favoured, as you make the most of the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Uranus visiting your career zone. Creativity and motivation are high but try to keep a sense of perspective.
LEO (July 23 - August 22) Party-loving Lions are keen to socialise and circulate; mix and mingle; imagine and create; as you let your hair down and have some fun. But it's Equinox day so try not to overdo things!
PISCES (February 19 - March 20) You're thinking about a financial, business or work project as today's planetary patterns help you tackle tasks with extra energy and enthusiasm. But things won't happen overnight!
GEMINI (May 21 - June 20) Open and honest communication is the secret to success at the moment. There'll be plenty of opportunities to expand your peer group. But don't neglect your long-term friends in the process.
TAURUS (April 20 - May 20) The planetary patterns give tired Taureans a welcome energy surge today. The stars also favour some quiet contemplation, as you use your intuition to help you solve a current problem.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21) You're in the mood to help a loved one through a rough patch, or cheer up a close friend who is down-in-the-dumps. If you get drawn into a fiery discussion, strive to be balanced and fair-minded.
SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21) Scorpio is the sign of extremes, and you can have trouble relaxing. As we celebrate the Equinox - when day and night are of equal length - strive to bring more balance into your busy life.
LIBRA (September 23 - October 22) It's time to get talking with your nearest and dearest about subjects you may not necessarily feel comfortable about. Try to be fair and balanced, as you view things from differing perspectives.
VIRGO (August 23 - September 22) Business ventures are brewing at the moment, as you combine common sense with intuition to achieve a positive result. Don't be impatient though. Your dreams will take a while to manifest.
ARIES (March 21 - April 19) Are you being too subjective about a current issue? Take a step back, adjust your focus, and strive to view the situation from a much broader and wiser perspective. Balance is the key.
Breathwork is simple and will do the trick. Plus, you can do it anywhere with zero preparation.
You need to learn abdominal breathing, cleansing breath, and bellows breath first.
Abdominal breathing is fairly simple, you want to learn to breathe deeply into the abdomen, as opposed to the chest. When you inhale, you should feel your navel rise and your abdomen distend. Once the abdomen is full, you can take a deeper breath by then allowing the chest to expand. This should be the way that you breathe naturally all the time if it isn't already.
The bellows breath is accomplished by inhaling deeply and then exhaling in a series of short, forceful breaths. This is easiest to accomplish at first by inhaling deeply into the abdomen and chest (as above) and then exhaling by saying "huh-huh-huh-huh-huh..." until your lungs are empty. About four or five times and you will feel full of energy, though possibly more if you are particularly lethargic at the time.
The cleansing breath is accomplished by sitting up straight, extending first the left arm out parallel to the ground, then bending the arm at the elbow and closing your left nostril with your forefinger. Inhale deeply through the right nostril, breathing in clean energy, and exhale through the right nostril while intending to breathe out all stagnant energy. You want to inhale from the nostril to the perineum, exhale from the right foot to the right nostril. After three breaths, switch sides - close right nostril in the same manner, breath in from nostril to perineum, breathe out from left foot to left nostril. After three breaths, release the right nostril and breathe in the same manner from nose to perineum, exhale from perineum to nose, three times.
For the warming breath, inhale to the perineum, work up a plug of saliva in the mouth, and swallow it on top of the breath. Hold for 8-10 seconds while focusing on the dan tien, about two inches below the navel and about two inches inside the abdomen. Raise the perineum (clench), hold the breath, then exhale through a tightened larnyx - like wheezing forcefully - while continuing to focus on the dan tien. After 8-10 breaths the spot will begin to get warm, and with practice you will be able to draw that warmth to a particular spot or throughout the body by imagining it moving.
The warming breath is not safe if you do not accomplish the cleansing breath at some point in the day first. Bellows and Cleansing breath are a great way to begin the day, so you should do them in the morning anyway, and cleansing breath again at night.
