Kundalini Yoga Mudra's: Venus mudra
On the left de venus mudra for men and on the right the venus mudra for women.
For men this means that the left little finger is on the bottom and the right thumb on top.
For women, the right little finger is on the bottom and the left thumb on top.
This mudra is used frequently in exercises. It derives the name
because it connects the positive and negative sides of the Venus mound on
each hand to the thumbs. The thumbs represent the ego. The Venus mound is
the fleshy area at the base of the thumb. It is symbolized by the planet Venus
which is associated with the energy of sensuality and sexuality. The mudra
channelizes the sexual energy and promotes glandular balance. It also brings
the ability to fôcus or concentrate easily if you rest it in your lap
while in a meditative posture. To form the mudra place the palms facing each
other. Interlace the fingers with the left little finger on the bottom. Put
the left thumb tip just above the base of the thumb on the webbing between
the thumb and index finger. The tip of the right thumb presses the fleshy
mound at the base of the left thumb. Thumb positions are reversed for women.
