Just like a chameleon, you can watch and listen and learn and await with poise for the perfect moment to say the right things.. This is brilliant for resolving challenging situations and changing situations within all types of relationships – at work, within your romantic relationships, families and friends.
It will set you on a life-yoga path for your year ahead and help you be more in the flow of life – where the right things that really are best for you flow to you more easily!
If we feel ourselves striving and pushing to hard, it is because we are going against the current. The animal card for a chameleon talks about being sensitive, being the silent witness, rather that reacting on emails and writing hurriedly to try and save and resolve, rather step back, allow yourself to become still and to breathe and to blend in with the background.
Watch the correspondence, look at the patterns in different people’s actions and behaviours, listen to the dialogues.
IntroductionThe term 'yoga' derives from the Sanskrit root yuj, meaning 'join', 'bind together' or ‘harness’ (such as of horses to a chariot). In the Indo-European family of languages, to which Sanskrit belongs, many cognate words may be found, such as 'yoke' in English. In the Indian context, yoga has several senses, and in this short article an attempt will be made to outline broadly what is known of its origins and practices.


The focus is mainly on what has been termed ‘postural’ yoga, which involves work on the body. However, there are Hindu, Buddhist and Jain schools of yoga, and other derivative schools, for whom the main practice is meditation.At its root, the practice of yoga is an attempt to transform the individual’s consciousness through a variety of mental and practical techniques that work on the nervous system and brain chemistry.
The yogi is essentially an experimenter with consciousness who may engage with various mental and physical disciplines and with regimens of particular kinds of plants or foods, modifying practice and consumption in order more easily to regulate the fluctuations of the mind. Yoga is a science, as the practitioner needs to observe and carefully analyse the effects of practice on his or her consciousness, health, well-being or psychic powers, and adopt or adjust to an attitude, lifestyle or behaviour which better contribute to the desired results.
Historically, yogis have tended to live on the margins of society, experimenting with practices that generally run counter to traditional social norms and values. In the long course of the development of mental science in South Asia, the term ‘yoga’ acquired several technical senses, one of them being a disciplined or controlled method.There is the element of discipline in all yogic practices, which is a vital component in the regulation of brain chemistry.
Yoga might also be described as ‘immersion’: in psychic space or in an object of meditation.
Deep states of immersion are perhaps best described as trance states, which may be experienced as a kind of ‘suspension’ of the normal world, or as a timeless union with something immeasurably larger than the individual practitioner.
Such states are usually experienced, in one way or another, as an encounter with ‘truth’ or with ultimate or absolute ‘reality’, which are more vivid and profound than any experience in ordinary waking consciousness.The ancient Sanskrit term tapas derives from the root tap, meaning ‘heat’.


Rigorous yoga practices or the ingestion of psychedelic plants may result in an enormous sense of heat in the body, which can arise in trance states. Such supra-normal states can cause a cleaning of the biophysical system and be powerful aids to health. Perhaps obviously, the more radical the experiment with consciousness, the more the experimenter needs to be aware of the possible dangers and social difficulties that may result. Some of the earliest reports available to us from travellers, such as from Greeks in the fourth century BCE, contain references to the practice of sometimes extreme asceticism by ‘gymnosophists’ attempting to gain wisdom.
However, several of the techniques of yoga, including breath-control, meditation, the raising of heat in the body, and entry into near-death trance states, and not unique to South Asia.
