First Quarter Moon in Libra…The Original Gangster Mom Style.

Started the day off doing hot yoga at The Awakening Yoga Studio in Richmond Hill… then spent the day on Tybee Island for the First Quarter Moon in Libra…

Libra. The Scales. The balancing act it requires to be a mom…a wife…a sister…an aunt…a friend…a daughter…and an ECHO tech…all the while maintaining my own sanity TO BE true to myself is A LOT. I’m only one person and I have to find a way to balance all that….ha. I should actually win an award. I could easily be a hermit and stick to myself…but I chose to be present in everyone’s life that I encounter. Some days I get tired and grumpy…but given the fact that I’m always balancing the peace, or at least trying, I think I’m doing pretty good and if I get moody…it’s me, not you. I take on too much sometimes…but then I scale back. I get lazy…then crazy…I manage. It’s life…you balance. 

Love & Moonlight,


Ps. I am the original Gangster mom…sometimes you just have to be yourself. Wild, Crazy, and Free. 

Full Moon: Pink Moon in Libra.

Full Moon//Pink Moon in Libra.


Libra, the Scales…FIND balance in your life…


Pink Flowers, Pink Moss, Pink Painted Toes…


Stop and smell the flowers while you still can…

Love & Moonlight,


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 Libra.

New Moon Flow…








Harmony. It is THE one thing I strive for in each day. Ebb. Flow. Rhythm. Balance. Libra, the Scales, offers some insight on just that. What can you do to stay balanced? What can you let go of to open up for? Find that inner rhythm to your divine soul. Develop a yin yang state of mind. Light. Dark. Feminine. Masculine. It is all needed to be well rounded and balanced.

I didn’t post about the last quarter moon…I was busy transfiguring. Completely thankful and watching some heavy shifts happening. I applied for the Savannah Yoga Center Teacher Training program and got in! It starts this October 14th and I’m completely OVER THE MOON! I spent the last part of this past lunar cycle getting excited and prepared and spent the yin Balsamic Phase in a quiet and grateful way. Started a yoga journal….been reading more… Been thinking a lot about Yin and Yang…

You would think that at a new moon it would be a time of yin…and in some ways, yes it is.. because there is always an element of both yin and yang in each and every day….BUT a new moon is really a Yang phase. It is a time to set a new intention…a new beginning…the beginning of a journey….the catapult to get moving.

Be mindful to not over exert yourself. In a world full of YANG….it can be very easy to fall into the exhausting routine of keeping up with the Joneses. If you get to that point…take it back a bit. Check in with yourself and reevaluate your intentions. Find your balance. Find your yin….find a place of peace…find a person that balances you out. If you are a very Yang person by nature…find a friend or a lover or a family member that is more Yin to balance you out…odds are they need your Yang too.

So taking that in to consideration and thinking about Libra….we can then start thinking in a yin yang way….BALANCE. you need them both… Moving forward and starting a new intention…lets yang it up…and really make an effort to do the things we have always wanted to do…

For me…it’s all about the Yoga Teacher Training. I’m so ready for this phase in my life and can’t wait to get flowing. My intention is to be the student I need to be to transform my life and those around me….I can’t wait to learn the foundations and philosophy of yoga and really open up more spiritually. I’m making waves…

Love & Moonlight,


P.S. The video was from this mornings yoga flow with my youngest daughter Uma. Song: Skinny Love By: Bon Iver

I told you to be patient

I told you to be fine

I told you to be balanced

I told you to be kind

P.S.S. Even though right now we are being really YANG to get some things flowing…take time tonight to sit down and honor your body with a little yin meditation. Your body will thank you…




Full Moon in Libra. If there is no way, create one.


Full moon in Libra…

Tonight is a great time to start thinking about making a “life list.” 

With the full moon in Libra there is an energy that screams sociability. So go on…talk it up! Bounce your ideas off of others…talk to yourself…make a life list and post it to the world. Or just journal it for yourself. 

There may also be an energy around, from the lunar eclipse, that might put your relationships to a test. Tonight would be a good time to evaluate your relationships…maybe it’s time to talk it up and shift to a higher level of connection…or maybe you’ve seen it coming and knew deep down that splitting would actually benefit you more. Whatever situation you’re in…listen to your intuition. You know what’s best. Choose your words carefully…and don’t say something you may regret later, especially if you are angry. Let that anger hop out the window.

AND seriously…tonight start thinking about making a life list. It’s similar to a bucket list, but a lot less morbid. A life list is ACTIVE and intended for you to start living your life the way YOU WANT TO LIVE. I can’t say it enough…if you haven’t realized it yet, YOU have the power to do what you want to do. You are responsible for your life. So live it. Make a list of things you want in your life.. Write down how you want to live…What you want to do… What intentions you have.. And then….START doing them. 

It’s not enough just to send out good vibes and energy and expect it to magically happen. Vibes and energy are just the beginning (and also vital)..,you then have to ACTIVELY persue and make that change. It takes mind and action to make a difference. 

So write up your life list and get to living..

Love & Moonlight, 


Ps. I’m not EVEN going to proof read this for grammatical errors…mama ain’t got time for that! 🙂

PSS…found that image of Pinterest! 

Last Quarter Moon in Libra.

Gratitude is the key word for a last quarter moon phase… Feel Gratitude. 

Love the skin you are in. Feel gratitude.

Invoke an open mind, open heart. Feel gratitude.

Be still and give grace. Feel gratitude.

Revive your divine light, divine soul. Feel gratitude.

Accept what is (the good, the bad, the light, the dark) and feel gratitude.

Balance yourself tonight. And feel gratitude. Yin. Yang. Yin. Yang.

Love & Moonlight,


New Moon in Libra with Cocktail Monday on Point!

I’m going to make this short and sweet…as this Sleepy Hollow Cocktail has already gotten me feeling good. In honor of Cocktail Monday (the Monday I come off call) I present to you… THE SLEEPY HOLLOW.


1/2 oz of Absinthe (to swirl around your cup and discard)

2 oz of mezcal (I used 100% agave Hornitos :medium aged: tequila)

1 oz of St. Elizabeth Allspice dram (I used Drambuie)

2 dashes of angostura bitters

1-2 sprigs of rosemary for a smokey fragrance.


Swirl the absinthe in a cup and discard. Then add the mezcal (tequila), dram, angostura bitters with ice in a shaker and drain into the cup (with the residual absinthe)…garnish with the rosemary and light it on fire for a smokey fragrance. Serve immediately. (Serves one).

So above is my photo of my Monday Cocktail...pretty pleased and ready for bed as it is my MAMAS night cap (it’s gone now)…did my yoga tonight…with hip openers…and topped the night off with this cocktail! Tomorrow I’ll be sore…I know…but I feel good right now!

THE MOON, however, is in LIbra it is fitting to just BEEEEE! No right or wrongs matter tonight…because with the Scales of the Libra teaches us…without the wrong there would be no right…you have to have both…so just BE…and don’t fuss. Let it go… 🙂 It’s a NEW MOON…so set an intention for this lunar cycle…maybe it could be about letting go of something…

Love & Moonlight,

Crescent Moon in Libra

by Carlos Masberger

The moon is now in the crescent moon phase and is currently sitting in Libra. Libra…the scales.. The peacemaker. The level headed. The one that balances it all. 

For tonight and the next couple days…let life be what it is. Don’t get worked up about things…let it go…and just be. Surrender to YOURSELF…and if you’ve been troubled by a situation or someone, stop giving it or them the power to control your emotions.  Take the next couple days to care, but do it carelessly. Take the good and the bad and accept them both. For what it’s worth…everything has a balance. Life is not black and white…it has more color than the naked eye can see. Nothing is permanent. Life is always changing. YOU have the power to live the way you want to live and to leave behind what isn’t serving you. So do it.

Love & Moonlight,


First Quarter Moon in Libra

First Quarter Moon | The Walden Moon Lifestyle by Kelly Walden

The First Quarter Moon phase is in Libra tonight. 

The first quarter moon phase is considered a “Half Moon.” The Moon is half way full and is steadily waxing to full. This is a good time to check in with yourself. I’ve noticed in my experience that I get a sudden urge to want to check back in with myself and rethink about my goals or my intentions and move forward or slow down. When working with the moon, as a natural time clock, you can get a lot accomplished…internally and outwardly.

Before we dive deep into working with the moon let’s just simmer on the fact that today is an important day…the First Quarter Moon Phase in Libra…a time to check in with yourself. If you’ve followed along from the beginning and you’re interested in working with the moon…then you have already set that goal and you have it in mind. Now is the time to reconfirm your desire and prepare yourself to go full force by July 1st, 2015…the Thunder Full Moon. By then I’ll have more worksheets and explanations and tips on how to incorporate the moon and nature into your life. If you’ve noticed, I’m working along this natural time clock already…and my ultimate goal is to have a steady workflow for this technique available for whoever stumbles upon it.

Thought prompts for the Libra Zodiac sign…

LIBRA…the Scales…the peacemaker. The Lover….the unopposed and understanding. The balance…the artist. The calm. Opposites that are neither right or wrong. Everything…is EVEN KEEL.

If you are struggling with something…think openly and see all sides. Understand the differences and appreciate the perspective. There is a gray area where right and wrong can sit together…and that is okay. What may be right for you may be wrong for someone else…the differences make the balance. To leave you with a quote…

“Truth lies in the balance of two. To Libra, every truth is composed of two half-truths.” – Steven Forrest The Inner Sky
