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
