New Moon in Aries. March 27, 2017.Β

New Moon in Aries.

Tonight I’d like to share two favorite Yukti Sutra verses from The Radiance Sutras book.

__________________________________

Enter these turning points,
Where the rhythms of life transform
Into each other.

Breath flows in, filling, filling,
   In this moment, drink eternity.

Breath flows out, emptying, emptying,
   Offering itself to infinity.

Cherishing these moments,
Mind dissolves into heart,
Heart dissolves into space,
Body becomes a vibrating field,
Pulsating between fullness and emptiness.

At the end of the exhale,
Breath surrenders to quietude.
For a moment you hang in the balance –
Suspended
In the fertile spaciousness
That is the source of breath.

At the end of the inhale,
Filled with the song of breath,
There is a moment when you are simply
Holding the tender mystery.

In these interludes,
Experience opens into exquisite vastness
With no beginning and no end.
Embrace this infinity without reservation.
You are its vessel.

-Yukti Verses 3 & 4, The Radiance Sutras, by Lorin Roche, PhD

____________________________________

These two verses are so beautiful to me…when I think of the breath I am reminded of just how powerful the breath really is. It is the life force. It has power. And you can use it to kindle the fire within you.

ON TO THE MOON:

When I think of Aries…I think of FIRE and the internal flame. We all have one. Burning. Some days brighter than others….but always there. When Aries is in the mix I like to return my thoughts to my inner flame…what kindles it? What flames it? At this new moon I’ll be checking into what makes my fire burn bright….and do that. And maybe do some fire breath pranayama to get my internal flame roaring.

SET AN INTENTION:

This lunar cycle I’ll be tuning into what flames my fire…which is artwork, yoga, and writing. I intend to get a start on creating a routine for my creative outlets. I really would love to start making artwork again…be more diligent with my yoga and journaling/blogging…time to set my butt on fire like the Aries and get stuff done!

Love & Moonlight,

Kelly

Night and Sleep…and the Spring Awakening.

Night and Sleep…and the Spring Awakening.

This is one of my favorite times of year. The first day of Spring…  a new beginning… the end of Winters Slumber. A time to start fresh… to clean… to throw out the old… in with the new… the beginning of an awakening…

An awakening to your soul… to the flowers… to the grass.. to the trees… an awakening for Mother Nature and her animal friends….

Coincidentally the moon is in the LAST Quarter phase… a literal term to use. The last of many things… the beginning of many more. 

Now that Winters slumber is over…

Wake up flowers…

Wake up soul…

Wake up Mother Nature…

Wake up soul…

Wake up animal friends…

Wake up soul…

Spring is here…thank you thank you thank you…

So start thinking of what needs awakening… start thinking of things to let go of… start thinking of things to begin… start fresh… start clean… and praise the beauty that we live in…

For some inspiration…and to give praise where praise is due…thought to remember:

“God.

the eternal

unchanging

formless force

beneath the ever changing forms.

I am. you are. we are.

that.”

-Jes Allen

Happy Spring Equinox! Hoping that your first day of Spring is the start and continuance of many things good…

Love & Moonlight, 

Kelly

Half Moon in Capricorn…The last Quarter and New beginning.Β 

Half Moon in Capricorn. First day of Spring. The slumber is over. Time for Spring cleaning and New Beginnings. 

How cool is it that the last Quarter Moon fell on the Spring Equinox? Very cool. I’m taking the word “LAST” literally and beginning again. Thank goodness for Spring…time to clean out the old for the new to begin. Be like the Capricorn…half mountain goat, half sea creature…CLIMB those mountains you’ve wanted to…and SWIM against the current…

PS. There will be a separate Spring Equinox post later today…most likely tonight. But go ahead and start thinking about Spring Cleaning and NEW beginnings…because that is what I’ll be thinking about all day. Make a list! Make two…just start thinking new and fresh!

Waning Moon: The Flowers of Sleep.Β 

Les Fleurs Du Sommeil (The Flowers of Sleep), by Achille Theodore Cesbron (1849-1915)


The Moon is waningwaning, waning, waning. 

I am sleepingsleeping, sleeping, sleeping. 

I am dreamingdreaming, dreaming, dreaming. 

________________________________________

As the moon is waning...Sometimes you just got to join in and turn inward and rest with it. Rest your tired bones. Rest your tired eyes. Rest your tired soul. I didn’t intend on staying home from work today…but my youngest daughter got sick last night…and so here I am at home…resting with her…resting with the moon…resting with the flowers…resting, resting, resting. In these quiet moments… when you truly rest… friendly little dreams appear…feelings arise…and you get inspired. Sometimes just resting will bring answers to questions you’ve been asking for a long time. When the mind is quiet…things become clear. So rest with the moon….rest with the flowers…and rest often. 

For a bit of astrology: to go with your waning moon in Scorpio tonight…ask yourself….what would a Scorpio do if they were given only a limited time left on this Earth…in this vessel they were given? A Scorpio would tell you to sit and FEEL the answer…they would tell you to go by feeling…not logic. When you sit and feel what your intuition is telling you…you will know the answer.  That is why Scorpios are so passionate…they feel things and then live like there is no tomorrow…so sit, wane, rest, sleep, dream…and when you wake up…live your life with passion. 

For the next couple of days the moon will be waning.…on March 20th there will be a Last Quarter Moon in Capricorn AND the Spring Equinox. 

So rest up in the last bit of the winter days to prepare yourself for Spring! Because a lot of things are preparing for an awakening…you, the flowers of sleep, the Earth, your soul…

Love & Moonlight,

Kelly

Full Moon Tonight in Virgo. March 12th, 2017.

Full Moon in Virgo…

Oh, how I love a Virgo Full Moon. This particular one was quite special for me…I got to spend last evening at a Full Moon gathering with a bunch of my Moon Goddess Sisters at the lovely Kim’s house…I wish we had taken a group photo…but we gathered together, ate food, drank cocktails and wine, made Yoni necklaces (ahem, yes, vagina pendants out of clay), did a burning ritually let go of things, and chanted and made music around the fire…I wish I took more pictures but I was so busy having fun…but here is a small collage…


Our chant was so beautiful…it was so filled with goodness and feminine divinity. I was blown away by how powerful the chant was and how significant it was to this particular Virgo Full Moon…one word…women. Here is the chant if you want to hear it! CLICK HERE FOR THE CHANT.

ON TO THE FULL MOON

Virgo, the virgin, the maiden, the mother, the sister, the daughter, the healer. Women. At this full moon there is soooo much feminine energy…

Here is to ALL the women in the world…the healers, the mothers, the daughters, the sisters…that power we harness is otherworldly…to say the least, we ARE the portal to life…we are the nurturers of all nurturers. Whether we birth a baby or not, our children are nurtured by us women…us women are nurtured by us women…there is a power here…that healing power that women possess …use it…be proud of it…and rise up as the Goddess you were born to be…

Love & Moonlight,

Kelly

Ps. The first picture above is a collage I made with three pics that my younger daughter Uma took of me…mother, daughter , love. 

PSS. My mom helped me pick out the first pic above out of several collages I made… Maiden, Mother, Crone…full circle!

PSSS. Shout out to my new friend Tiffany…for serendipitously falling into my life and joining me last night.
