Our emotional selves embody Kapha dosha with feelings of compassion, patience and deep love. In our functional anatomy kapha dosha gives us strength in our muscles, power in our bones and juice in our organs, skin and joint systems. Kapha dosha is the cohesion in our lives that connects us to our bodies, ourselves and to one another. It gives us a sense of familiarity and trust, which allows for smooth living and consistency and when times get tough kapha dosha is there to generate fortitude to withstand difficult circumstances, conditions and challenges. These qualities can be especially beneficial in a 2+ ft snowstorm or an NYC commute!

The New Year begins with a karmic twist, as the nodes of the Moon, known as Rahu and Ketu, enter the rashis (zodiac signs) Leo and Aquarius respectively on January 8th. It’s time to leave behind the domains of Virgo— health, healing and disease and of Pisces— idealism, escapism and foreign affairs.
