FCEA Apprenticeship with Steven Forrest

I finally did it! I’m signed up in the apprentice program at the Forrest Center for Evolutionary Astrology with Steven Forrest (and his team)… my all time favorite astrologer! This has been a dream of mine ever since I took the Lunar Abundance course with Dr. Ezzie Spencer back in 2014… which subsequently led me to find Steven Forrest and the inspiration to start this blog in 2015!

I’ve always wanted to go to one of his workshops at the Omega Institute for Holistic Studies but never found the time to. My job tends to consume a fair amount of my time and now that I’m learning there is no time than right now… I jumped even deeper and signed up to become a certified apprentice on the road to becoming a master astrologer and professional.

The first program is 7 weeks. And then you can go on to Craftsman and then Master PROFESSIONAL Astrologer! ✨ Can’t stop.. won’t stop!

I toyed around with MANY ideas on how I can help others navigate through some of life’s hardest lessons… thought about becoming a professional astrologer…going back to school to study Religion and Theology… becoming a Death Doula… or a Somatic Psychotherapist… I even got certified as a Yoga teacher and owned my own studio before the pandemic came.

But my own limiting (and scattered) belief that time, money, and a clear direction was the issue for WHY I never did any of those… I kept hearing myself say I wanted this and that… but only ever stayed scared to take the plunge. (I should give myself HUGE props for owning a yoga studio… but it was a HUGE sacrifice and required a lot more time than I had to give… the pandemic was a blessing there… and I do desire to teach again eventually…just not manage it!)

NOW is all we have… let the knowledge flow through me and let it benefit everyone I interact with. Let us share and teach each other how to walk through this life together and make our time NOW taste sweet!

Let’s do this!! It’s time to be ALIVE!

All Gas, No Brakes

The Class of 2021 Wildcats.

My oldest and first nephew graduated high school this past weekend. ❤️💙 Can’t believe how much they have grown!!! Many blessings and wishes for them both! May their hearts always be filled with love and joy and the intent to do good in this world!

And just like that… as my nephew says… all gas, no brakes! Here they come!

Get it babies! I love you’s sooo much!

Change is the ONLY constant.

Change is the only constant.

When you are in the midst of an awakening you start to question things…

Popular beliefs start to show their chin hairs… and the things you were once told to believe will all of a sudden not make sense anymore.

When you let go of who you thought you should be… you begin to realize who you really are.

It’s fuggin’ painful at times… and your greatest fear will be disappointing others because it has been beat into your head that you should be a certain way…

Deep down you know that you are changing… and the surrender to that change is going to be BIG & SCARY… but ohhh so worth it.

A bit of comforting advice… It’s actually not as scary as you think it will be.

You’ll wake up one morning with the will to live life on the next level… an up-level…

And you will no longer say… that’s the way we have always done it…

Loosen thy Pen.

Writing. God. The writing.

The exchange of words. The words. Nothing makes me feel more alive than writing.

When I was in college I took a couple creative writing classes. I debated on minoring in creative writing or printmaking but ended up doing neither… mostly because a single class was nearly 4 grand at SCAD. But really I was just a little chicken nugget and didn’t want to pay it back…

I’m still paying back what I have accrued.

But… the lessons I learned in my days in art school has served me well…

Ps. I’m finally writing my book…

To Meet and Be Met.

This is an excerpt from Rilke’s Book of Hours. I don’t feel like I can even add anything else to it…. every word is YES. shape your world… and nothing has ever been so real without beholding it…. the idea of free will and being completely present in your own life. To meet and be met…

Only few people are let into my world… and only a few know my deepest struggles… I’ll be first to admit I can run at the mouth too much and share too much to anyone who would listen… especially in the absence of noise. but I’m shrinking my circle… I’m practicing more silence… less social media of the norm. This space to me feels safer. Not as many judging eyes… not many people I know blog… and not many people I personally know follow along…

But in the case of a stranger who needs a little insight into their own lives… maybe this struck a chord with you… and maybe you too are on a path to healing… a path to grounding… and coming home to yourself.

Sending out messages to this world… you are not alone.

Love,

Kelly

Ps. Haven’t really prayed hard in a while… but tonight… I’m on my knees.

My room.

My room & home away from home. I’ll remember the wind, the laughter, and the girl sleep over with @akuma.13 … like high school! ❤️ thank you thank you thank you Tamai family! 😘😘😘
