Tracking the moon to get some lovely things lined up to share! I’m getting excited about what’s in store for the future. Really this is just fun for me to share a lifestyle that has been inspired by many people and history.
Historically, before the computer and Internet, the moon played a vital role in everyday life. So did the solstices and equinoxes. In fact, our ancestors farmed and lived by these two astronomical phenomenons. Certain moon phases and certain seasons were meant specifically for planting or harvesting and kept time. At a later post(s) I’ll get into more detail about the history and delve into moon folklore.
I guess you can say I’ve always been interested in the moon, astronomy, and astrology…and to let you know I’m a Virgo sun sign (although my high school physics teacher/University of Hawaii astronomer told me I was a Leo sun sign), a Capricorn moon sign, and a Pisces rising…in case you were wondering. When I was younger I used to print out all kinds of astrology and astronomy things from the Internet.
Now, in my thirties I’m still interested in it and have developed a strong liking towards the moon. Of recent, I joined a group of ladies in the Lunar Abundance practice by Ezzie Spencer that has also inspired my personal lifestyle. In her practice she focuses on the eight lunar cycles as a feminine/feeling based intention setting technique. More inner work. If you are interested in soul work and the inner workings of your mind to achieve a life of abundance you should check out her practice.
Steven Forrest. Need I say more? Okay okay…a big inspiration in living by the moon, stars, and planets. If you haven’t read his books…get on it! Book reviews later!
I have also really gotten into gardening and essential oils. I’ve even started celebrating the solstices and equinoxes with my family…particularly with my sisters, mom, and my two daughters. We have a thing going where we buy each other gifts for the seasons changing. A reminder of how the earth and her seasons are ever changing just like our lives.
For the past two or so years I have seen myself grow and get inspired every day. Here I’m able to share whatever I love…and if that inspires you then YES!!! We have crossed each other’s path and made a connection…a kindred spirit recognition. In a way this is like an interactive journal…where I’ll share how history, inspirational people, practices, and knowledge has inspired me to live the path I’m on! Oh and even my art! Cheers to living the “old-fashioned” way. The natural way. Where the moon and stars meet the Earth and her seasons…and life happens!
