“We are going to the moon that is not very far. Man has so much farther to go within himself.”
MOON AND CREATIVITY
LIFE AND WATER.
Our primordial creative power is contained in the element of water. Life came from water and water makes up most of the human body. Out of five elements (earth, water, fire, air, and space) that, according to Ayurveda, have built the world, the element of water is the one we call upon when we create. The Moon is the celestial body that, thanks to its gravitational force, moves the Earth's waters and all the liquids inside our bodies. Not only blood and lymph but urine, saliva, bile, sweat, tears, semen, gastric juices, breast milk. All these liquids make us vulnerable and human.
When we harmonize with the force of the Moon, the water inside our bodies flows effortlessly, as does our creative potential. The only limitation to our imagination and possibilities lies in the occasional waterlessness of our minds.
Yin Yoga, the practice of quiet and stillness, speaks to the Moon. The Moon speaks to me, teaching me how I can use my knowledge in both Yin Yoga and Astrology toward creating a practice that will help writers and all creatives tap into that fluid energy of divine creation.
