Welcome to Cosmic Rhythm Week
Here’s the replay from our Free Live Teaching with Kathleen Whalen on Tuesday, Nov 9. This teaching augments what was in today’s email (see below).
Today’s Cosmic Rhythm week lesson is a short guide on how to start to activate your chakras.
Today’s planet is Mars
Mars helps us take decisive action.
Want to dissolve mind clutter and improve your decision-making?
Use the clear-cutting focus that Mars brings to our consciousness…each week!
Welcome to Tuesday’s ‘genius’ – cutting things out of your life and taking decisive action. It’s a great day for fasting or going Veg, or for intensive workouts and yogic breath practices.
Did you know that Tuesdays are connected with the planet Mars?
The name for Tuesday through different cultures and languages is associated with Mars. For instance, in French, Tuesday is pronounced Mardi. Literally, “Mar’s Day. In Latin Tuesday is named ‘Day of Mars’ and in ancient Greek it’s named after Mars (the ancient Greek Ares). In modern times (by East Indian and Asian historical standards), Old English Tewesday is connected with the god of single combat and in Norse mythology, Mars is associated with law and justice.
Astronomy and Mars
Mars is referred to as ‘The Red Planet’. You can SEE that the planet Mars looks red in the sky with the naked eye when it is in the night sky.
Vedic Astrology of Mars
Right now, Mars is in Libra and inspires us to make bold commitments to balance and harmony. This is a peace-seeking Mars that really wants everyone to get along. So, if you have been judging or harboring strong opinions about what ‘others’ are doing in the world. I suggest letting this Mars help you breathe compassion for others into your being. Finding Peace within you can be found by turning compassion and kindness on yourself first. Then, wish others well and that they find Peace. The world can get along – the eclipse months just stir the pot to help us let go of what still binds us.
Vedic Astrology, Yoga and the Chakras
Did you know that Yoga and Vedic Astrology are considered ‘sister sciences’ in the “modern” (only the last two thousand years) energy medicine texts of India ? You are applying yogic science when you use Conscious Calendars.
In Vedic Astrology, the planet Mars is activated in our bodies and minds every Tuesday because Tuesdays are connected with Mars.
You can take action on Tuesdays — every week — and harness the energy of Mars IN your body. Clear accumulations by making it a detox or fasting day, focus on doing pranayama or breathwork which energizes you, and use the energy of the day to make clear decisions.
Mars and First Chakra
Did you know that the planet Mars is associated with the first chakra? This is the place of beginnings, activation, and your kundalini energy that rises up your central channel of energy. The system of chakras comes from the slightly more modern Indian texts, knowledge, and healing system, and Vedic Astrology is intrinsically one part of this entire system.
When you align the energy of each planet and its association with a chakra…you are embodying the forces of the solar system in your being. This is your “foundation” or ‘root base of both your physical and energy body.
Three easy actions to take on Tuesdays to harness your energy:
– Try not to eat meat or red meat on Tuesdays. Eat even more salads, greens, and fruit. Did you know that millions of people fast on Tuesdays to reduce their anger (and settle the rising fire of Mars in their psyche)?
– Eat red vegetables like beets, red-tipped lettuce, or red lettuce and red, pink, or salmon-colored fruits like papaya or persimmon on Tuesdays. The digestive enzymes in fruit like papaya and persimmon have been shown to help digestion (which is one form of digestive fire, Agni, in Ayurveda).
– Wear red or pink (the gentler version of Mars) clothing to activate your Mars and help get going into your week.
I’ve got more pragmatic “life hacks” to share in the Cosmic Rhythm week.
note: we gifted the Conscious Calendar Month of November to those who showed up LIVE on Tuesday.
