First Quarter Moon in Capricorn. 

The Tivoli at 290 by Kelly Walden of The Walden Moon

The moon entered into Capricorn at the first quarter phase last night. 

This is your first check in point. Your first half moon…a time to look at your New Moon Goal or New Moon Mindset again. Notice how far you have come and then make a note of the next steps to take for completing you goal/mindset by the Full Moon. This First Quarter Moon phase will be in Capricorn this month! Capricorn the Sea-Goat…a creature that is both fish and goat…one that can swim in the deepest seas and scale the scariest mountains. At this First Quarter Moon phase…think about how the Capricorn has a duality. Think of your duality for being the goal/mindset and the journey to complete it.

Then look back again at your New Moon goal that was in Virgo. Here is the link back to the past New Moon post. For me…I’ve been slowly, but surely, finding myself. Finding what is important to me…and discovering who I am. And this moon cycle I’ve fallen in love with the following passage I shared at the New Moon:

“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

^ Virgo…my sun sign…me. 

In my next post…I’ll share something my friend shared with me…something that goes along with my Virgo New Moon goal…

Love & Moonlight,

Kelly

New Moon in Virgo.

Blowing Smoke Signals by Kelly Walden of The Walden Moon

Virgo…the Virgin…the perfectionist. To put it in the best words…here is an excerpt from The Inner Sky by Steven Forrest:

“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

Read that ten times. Take inspiration from that when you set your New Moon Goal or New Moon Mindset.

Take the next few days if you have to…but come up with your New Moon goal or mindset! Remember a New Moon is for new beginnings…a time to start something new…or just simply plant a seed of good intention and let it blossom! See if you can accomplish this by the next Full Moon!! (Coming up on September 27/28)!!!

Love & Moonlight,

Kelly

P.S. I’m a Vigo sun sign…. wink!

Full moon AKA “Blue Moon” in Capricorn

Briefly…

For this upcoming July 2015’s first FULL MOON we will be celebrating the “Thunder Moon” aka the “Buck Moon”. Small facts from your Farmer’s Almanac…the reason why the July Full Moon is called the “Thunder Moon” is because there are a lot of thunder storms that happen in July…seems appropriate since we are focusing on the Earth element WATER for the summer! Another term used for the July Full Moon is the “Buck Moon”…because this is the time when deers grow new antlers…facts for the friends who love animals!

Stay tuned for the Full Moon material for July’s Full Moons.

SUMMER SOLSTICE | The Big Reveal. The Walden Moon | Lifestyle of Kelly Walden

The Walden Moon | Lifestyle by Kelly Walden

Current Moon Phase: Waxing Crescent in Leo

So here we are…on the longest day of the year…the day that marks the first day of Summer…when then days become long and the nights become short…the sun is in command and at its highest…and we can now begin to focus on the Earth element of WATER!

“Water is the principle of nurturance and protection. Outwardly, its spirit is one of warmth: inwardly, of imagination and intuition. With its penetrating, sensitive quality, water’s prime function is to feel.” – Steven Forrest The Inner Sky

I’m happy to announce my website and blog on this day and share a multitude of things!! Ready to feel some good things!? Here are easy links (some still waiting for posts):

Full Moon

Moon Phases

Four Seasons

Calendars & Lists

Herbs & Essential Oils

Recipes & Menus

Also in the tool bar you can read my bio, contact, and see my artwork (photography, illustrations, and mono printmaking)

So here is a brief overview of what you will find here…

The moon in many ways is quite magical. Beaming down bright. Waning. Hiding. Waxing. Beaming down bright. Waning. Hiding. Waxing. Turning the tides. The ebb and flow of life. Not only is it magical in the way that it exists…it is also magical in the way that it can help you cultivate a life of beauty and self-acceptance…with the combination of the solstices and equinoxes you can use these natural happenings as a guideline…a natural time clock to guide you and make your life just as magical.

So how do you use the moon and seasons? By using the four main moon phases (there are actually eight) and the four seasons, to set a natural time clock, you can create deadlines to getting stuff done…four squared.  Have you ever wanted to learn to surf? Or maybe you wanted to clean out the attic? Have you let the procrastination ghost sneak up on you too often?

Well hopefully I can share some good things to help inspire your life. Because who doesn’t want a beautiful life and a feeling of self acceptance and accomplishment?

Some things I hope to share:

  • Printable monthly calendars and lists (of all kinds), because list making and planning are the key visual that you’re getting stuff done.
  • Quarterly DIY projects to go along with the seasons.
  • Tidbits about herbs and essential oils.
  • Recipes.
  • A theme for each full moon with worksheets to go along.
  • And whatever I find interesting and worthwhile to share.

Use the easy links above to find and explore with…I’ll try my best to prepare in advance for things that are coming up…

For instance I’ll be sharing a July 2015 Calendar in my next post…you’ll be happy to notice that the first FULL MOON falls on the first day of July this year…and within that same month a second FULL MOON aka “BLUE MOON” will pop up on the last day of July…so some big things can happen this JULY 2015….so get ready!

At every NEW MOON post I hope to prepare you for the FULL MOON that follows…

Without further ado….here we go!

Love, Kelly
