New Moon in June…

New Moon in June…


Happy New Moon in June…

So this new Moon started off in Gemini and then made its way into Cancer for the majority of its phase…

I’m feeling like it started off really Yang with Gemini taking the lead…but there is definitely Cancer the crab that is shifting the weight of my world into a more introspective state of mind…

So much has changed in my life within this past month it is ridiculous… I finally finished Yoga teacher training at the end of May and then AT the SAME time my job workload shifted…I used to be on call every third week and now it is every other week… I’m still NOOOOOT used to it…and since the switch I have only had one weekend off. I’m tired and a little overwhelmed…but it’s just started and I know I will find my rhythm. 

I wanted to teach yoga classes at a studio but with this new work load change I’m starting to rethink things… because teaching while on call is NOT an option. I’m already strapped down to staying in Savannah every other weekend…if I decided to teach on the Fridays I’m off or even that weekend…I’ll never get to go on vacations or leave to go out of town….and I’m not sure I want to deprive myself of having fun…ESPECIALLY since last weekend was a dream in Florida. So I’m thinking of options…something that would work with my work life and personal life…

I’m thinking about making yoga videos…so that it’s free and accessible to anyone with the click of a button in their own home…with occasional live classes out in nature…I’m not really sure…maybe subbing or teaching at a dance studio every other week that I’m not on call during Mon-Wed….because teaching while I’m on call is NOT an option….so I’m just thinking… trying to figure it out…

finding introspection…

Working internally…

Channeling my inner crab…soft and delicate on the inside…but ready for the struggle I face with a hard shell of determination….

I’ll make it work…

Love & Moonlight,

Kelly

Happy Full Moon!

Tybee Tonight! 💙✨ Full Moon rise in Sagittarius with some of my favorite people! #strawberrymoon

Kelly

PS. Strawberry Full Moon… to remind you that strawberries are in season…get you some! 

Smudging… 

Smudging…


If you didn’t know… at the end of April 2017 …the 28th to be exact… the Universe and stars made a shift as Aquarius entered the South Node and Leo entered the North node…

What does that mean…. well for the next year and a half… until November 15, 2018…  there are going to be some things that arise within you from past Karma…and it might not feel so pleasant..some things might SEEM painful…. (you can thank AQUARIUS for that)… THE GOOD NEWS IS… that this is part of HEALING…. THE GOOD NEWS IS…you have the POWER to transform your Karmic REACTION… for every action there is a reaction… and you can CHOOSE to live you life UNRESTRAINED from a Karmic lead path… you don’t have to let karma rule your life… because in reality… you have the power to control your Karma…

THE GOOD NEW IS… you have LEO in the North node to help you out when you get to a low point or a moment of unwanted negative feelings… Leo reminds us to show compassion and understanding… so really if you let your Karmic past dictate your life…you might be doing it wrong… you ACKNOWLEDGE these feelings and then CHOOSE the reaction that is best going to serve you…do not ever dwell on it… instead learn and move on sending out the energy you want to attract… the law of attraction… also for goodness sake… LEO is a big old kitty cat… just wanting to play!!! So you have to remind yourself to let’s loose and have fun…and then the things you thoughts were so horrible…seem to not matter anymore… after all, the past is the past…

Love & Moonlight,

Kelly

Ps. I reference ALOT of astrologer Steven Forrest’s stuff… just so you know! 

Moon Salutations… Tomorrow with me!!

Come join me tomorrow afternoon for my LAST CommUNITY Flow Friday class for some Moon Salutations at 230 at The Savannah Yoga center! 1319 Bull Street…Tomorrow’s theme… The First Quarter Half Moon in Virgo.

.

Virgo. “The Virgin is an image of purity. Nothing has possessed her. She is attached to nothing, wants nothing, fears nothing. Nothing holds her. She is free, unbound by any earthly drama. Yet she is here, on the earth. What does the world offer one who seeks nothing but perfection? What can she do? She waits, aloof as the Madonna. She works on herself. And to pass the time, she helps out where she can.” -Steven Forrest.

Scorpio Flower Full Moon. May 11, 2017.

FULL MOON // Scorpio // Flower Moon

This moon…is my Mama’s moon. Scorpio…the scorpion. Passion. Passion. Passion. Red. Hot. And definitely Holy. 

Tonight it is pretty damn hot… 77 degrees (double lucky number 7) and I’m sweating on my back porch…for the next week it’s going to be in the 90s. Forget Spring…it’s already Summer here in Georgia…

Tonight the Scorpio Full Moon is making me think all about passion, love, sexuality, and the color red.. 

Red. Red wine that I’m drinking… Red. My cheeks from this heat… Red. My heart that is full… Full like the moon… Full

For tonight…I let go of the past. I move towards my passions… I let go of heart ache… I live on… I stare that SCORPION right in the eye, place a FLOWER in my hair, and make a pact with my divine feminine that I’ll live the life I want… Remembering that a Scorpion represents a crossroads decision…life or death… and I choose MY life… always… 

the power of choice is and will always be yours… the power to walk away when things no longer suit you… the power to make a change… the power to connect with your truest divine self… remembering that nothing is EVER happening to you…just around you…so that ultimately you are in control… and that there is always an option to disregard the wicked and move into your brilliant light… 

Love & Moonlight,

Kelly

Full Moon: Pink Moon in Libra.

Full Moon//Pink Moon in Libra.
——————————————————————

Balance…BALANCE…balance…

Libra, the Scales…FIND balance in your life…

Pink…PINK…pink…

Pink Flowers, Pink Moss, Pink Painted Toes…

Balance…BALANCE…balance…

Stop and smell the flowers while you still can…

Love & Moonlight,

Kelly

PS. Pink Moon…came from the idea of Spring…with pink flowers, pink moss, and wild ground phlox. <—I learned that from The Farmers Almanac online…

PSS. On a personal level…the BALANCING act for me has gotten very challenging here lately…I’m always on the run or doing something…I’m not even sure I actually sleep…I realized this weekend that I might be TOO BUSY…all I wanted to do this weekend was relax and be with my best friend…I almost threw my phone in the ocean at one point…time to tone it down and find balance in my own life….I need to cut back on engagements and stop and smell the flowers and JUST BE…THANK YOU full moon for putting me in check…

PSSS. Let it go…

New Moon in Aries. March 27, 2017.

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

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

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…

Love & Moonlight,

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. 

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

The Moon is Still the Moon…

Daily reminder…

I go through many phases…some are harder than others…I’m up, I’m down…I ebb, I flow…sometimes I feel lost, sometimes I feel together…sometimes my heart breaks hard even after when I thought I was past it all…sometimes I don’t give a shit…sometimes I make no sense…sometimes I make perfect sense…

bottom line, I’m still me…I’m still a light on this Earth…

Love & Moonlight,

Kelly

PS. Last night was the First Quarter Moon in Gemini… duality, embrace it. 

PSS. At this half moon remember that YOU deserve to be loved wholeheartedly… not halfheartedly.
