This sequence is your opportunity to invite death into your life. Not death in the traditional sense as death of a loved one, but death to the things that are no longer serving you. Possibly death to a horrible habit you’ve been meaning to break, death to your self-deprecating attitude, or maybe even death to a relationship that is not right for you. As much as it is important to celebrate life and all that it has to offer, it is equally important to celebrate our choice to kill or end things that are no longer working for us.

With poses that take you from standing to sitting, bending forward to arching backwards, you’re bound to see things from a different point of view. With your new perception in grasp it should be easier to uncover what you need to bring death to in your life. Being in tune with what you desire may also help bring things that are undesirable to the surface.

Be precise in your decision but be cautious not to overlook those thoughts, habits, or people that may not be ready for an end but rather are ready to transform. After all, death and transformation are partners in the same act of letting go.

Life may seem mysterious at times, but know with Mars and Pluto on your side you have the power, and more importantly the will power, to uncover your truth. Move with intention and trust through movement, you’ll be able to shed what you don’t need and make room for what you desire to manifest.
