The Quality of Time and YOGA

Clocks, planners and schedules help us measuring and organising the time. Even our youngest feel the impact of organised time with schedules quite soon in the child lives: as soon as the kids start walking and talking, the parents map out their days with the time to go to kindergarden, the time to eat, to sleep, to take bath, to play. When growing up, the daily schedules are also filling up. When you are an adult you need one to five digital assets and gadgets to distribute your time over the days, weeks and months. That is called planning and you mark everything in your planner and calendar. Yet, this is all only about the quantity of time.
Did you ever think about the QUALITY OF TIME? Perhaps you remember now a nice picknick day in the forest together with your beloved ones and you call it a quality time. While you may feel that was “quality time spent”, this is something quite different from what is: “The Quality of Time”! Same as we can measure the quantity of time by dividing the day into 24 hours and each hour into 60 minutes and so forth, we also have objective indicators to assign the quality of time. Even these are cosmic indicators, as old as the universe, though known only by a lesser number of people. It is time to expand the circle!
The QUALITY OF TIME relates to the qualities and characteristics assigned to each of the twelve zodiac signs. In modern terminology we could speak about a “zodiac profile” and “profiling”. The profiles are defined by the qualities of the zodiac signs: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces. Each day has a zodiac profile which expresses the specific qualities of that day. The quality of a Leo day for example is that this day is related to the element of Fire and in the body to the heart and blood circulation. Most often the days governed by Leo moon are warm, even hot days. The qualities of Leo influence your bio-rhythm, your well-being, your mood and many other puzzles pieces forming your life from day to day.

What Has the Moon to Do with Yoga?

How do know which day is a Leo day? The moon will tell you! The moon on its celestial journey stays around two days and a quarter of a day in each of the zodiac signs, thus completes one circle in approximately 28 days. The moon works like the indicator of a cosmic clockwork, a moon calendar helps us identifying which date and day of a given month is ruled by which zodiac sign. The moon itself adds even other elements to the daily time qualities: The phases of the moon have their own impacts, thus the profiling of the daily time qualities becomes more complex. The phases of the moon are: New Moon, Ascending Moon, Full Moon and Descending Moon.
When we learn about the influences which the moon holds over us, we can use this information to our advantage. For example, during the ascending moon it is considered a good time for growing whilst descending moon phases are often considered to be helpful when trying to decrease something or end it, for example exercising for weight loss, diets and detox are more beneficial when applied during descending moon phases. By the way, for detoxification the descending moon on Pisces and Scorpio Moon days will support you best.
The New Moon Days are usually considered as good for starting a new project and have it ideally completed by Full Moon. The around two weeks of the Ascending Moon phase are supportive to your project even when it takes many more weeks or months. On a Full Moon day some times things crack up naturally as the peak is reached and they fade out completely during the Descending Moon phase. The influences and qualities of the moon are also related to the four elements connected with the zodiac signs: air, fire, water and earth. The rhythm of nature is reflected in the moon cycles, including weather influences. Farmers are still nurturing their forefathers’ knowledge about these natural cycles and consider the moon influences for the planting and harvesting. As nature is under these cosmic influences, so are the human beings.

The Cosmic Influences and Your Body

Did you know that the organs and body parts are related to the zodiac signs and their ruling planets? The ancient scientists and doctors had solid knowledge about these deeply rooted relations among the living beings on planet Earth and the cosmic influences. Astrologers have written farmers’ calendars and included data of sun rise and moon rise, planetary movements, water tides, weather forecasts, annual festivals and likewise, these books were often called Almanach. An Almanach could be also addressing the requirements of other specific target groups like sailors for example. In the old times, also medical treatments have been planned carefully mapping out the impact of moon and zodiac qualities.
These treasures of wisdom are also helpful nowadays when you plan your daily life, especially when it comes to your health and fitness.
