CULTIVATE YOUR BIRTHING POWER
Are you planning to birth your baby peacefully – or even blissfully – no matter where or how you actually give birth?
If so, your clear intention and full commitment to birth preparation of a holistic nature will be imperative.
Using a range of mind-body approaches to fit individual needs, Nisha specialises in supporting women to birth with confidence.
Her sessions may be combinations of bodywork (including pregnancy, birthreadiness, induction, labour & postnatal massage), embodiment via breath, pelvic awareness, 1:1 Tigress Yoga, personalised birth hypnosis, counselling / birth debriefing, birth planning, doula birth support.
Among Nisha’s offerings are Tigress Yoga For Birth classes and birth workshops with a unique flavour. These are aimed at promoting deep trust and ecstatic states similar to those of undisturbed birth.
Pluto in Capricorn has triggered a huge increase in public awareness about the environmental issues facing our world, in particular global warming and our dependence on fossil fuels and nonrenewable energy. In the early nineties, I spent five years working for The Wilderness Society and we were proud to have 5000 members. Today TWS has 40,000 members and hundreds of thousands of supporters. Last November, three-quarters of a million people attended the People’s Climate Change marches with the 60,000-strong Melbourne march the largest in the world. There is no doubt that this massive Uranus is all about sudden and unexpected change. Aries the warrior likes to fight and move fast. Put these two together and you have a revolution. It started with the explosive events of the Arab Spring, Occupy Wall Street movement and London riots, but since 2010 there have been many examples of revolution and change, both positive and negative.
If Pluto in Capricorn symbolises the breakdown of the old way of doing things, Uranus in Aries brings fresh energy, creative ideas and new solutions to old problems. One major fallout from the GFC has been the rapid rise of the sharing economy, triggered by environmental and financial reasons. Why own when you can share or borrow? This philosophy has given rise to Uber and car sharing vs. taxis; Airbnb and couch surfing vs. hotel chains; ebay, bartering, sharing and recycling vs. major retailers; peer-to-peer lending and crowdfunding vs. bank loans; farmers’ markets and vegie gardens vs. the supermarket chain; Youtube and Spotify vs TV and record companies and house sharing and renting
Launch projects at the new moon, bring them to completion in the period from just before the full moon to the third quarter phase and wind them down and reflect on developments in the week before the next new moon. Important events such as parties, conferences and weddings are best held close to the full moon or when the moon is in the same sign as your sun (or star) sign. n
