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

First Quarter Moon in Leo. May 2, 2017.

First Quarter Moon in Leo.

Started a Mythic Spring yoga challenge…above is day one and two.

At halfmoons, like tonight…it’s a good idea to stop and be grateful…especially in the progress of attaining a new Moon intention. 

I feel like my intention to balance is coming to be. I’m doing yoga daily and that has helped me stay grounded. I also am so very grateful that I get to teach class on Friday at the yoga center…to me being of service and holding a creative space for people is a gift. A gift to them and a gift to humanity. EVERYONE needs yoga in their life.

ON TO THE MOON: Leo

The feline! Meooooow! Be frisky with life and have some fun!!! 

Love &Moonlight, 

Kelly

PS. So many good things in my life are coming to form. I’m teaching weekly…and I just cleaned and bathed my back porch to make way for a new lounge sitting area and yoga space… seeeeeee:

I ordered this set of furniture for my back porch!!!

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

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

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.
