9. Moon in Sagittarius – Diaphragm Function Energy

Wow! We are halfway through our Lunar cycle. We started half a month ago during the Lunar Eclipse, and now we are about to have a Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius. It’s New Moon season – an excellent time to set up intentions for new directions.

Time for New Plans and Goals

The Moon just entered the freedom-loving and expansive Sagittarius part of the sky. When balanced, we have lofty goals and the energy to pursue them. We’re optimistic and expansive, generous, broad-minded, and open to new perceptions.

When dis-harmonized, we find ourselves averse to commitment. We refuse to settle down and to take the time to accomplish our goals. Instead, we keep hopping from one adventure to another, looking for “greener” and “greener” pastures.

In the next two and a half days, we’ll harmonize Diaphragm Function Energy to get a new perception in life. Here is how to do it:

Left Side

Place your Right Hand on the left bottom of rib cage at the area of Left SEL 14. Place your Left hand on the right elbow at Right SEL 19.

Right Side

Place your Left Hand on the right bottom of rib cage at the area of Right SEL 14. Place your Right hand on the left elbow at Left SEL 19.

How It Helps

If Heart is the Emperor in the twelve-fold daily Function Energy, then Diaphragm Function Energy is the Imperial Guard. Curiously, many symptoms that we associate with the physical heart appear actually on the list of disharmonies of Diaphragm in Mary Burmeister’s textbooks. (Text 2, p. 28)

Diaphragm can help any symptoms that appear at night. If you wake up at night after a nightmare, harmonizing of Diaphragm can give you the new perception to see that it was all a dream.

New Moon (when Moon is close to the Sun) is a good time to start new projects. Sagittarius/Diaphragm energy has particular affinity with new projects. It thrives on the new – new travels, new plans, new knowledge.

As you sit and harmonize Diaphragm in the next couple of days, invite new things to come to your life.

*Correction. I’ve corrected the article to reflect the correct time for the Solar eclipse. Originally, it said that the eclipse will happen in late Scorpio. The correct date for the Solar Eclipse is Dec. 4, 2021 and it happens in Sagittarius.
