New Moon in Virgo/Libra. Peace Day. Last Day of Summer. First Day of Fall. 

Anew…

Mmmmm… when you’re at the cusp of another breakthrough… it feels pretty good. A couple weeks ago my Mom asked if I could come visit her in Virginia for the Fall Equinox… I checked my work calendar… and I was free… I even had that Friday off… so excitedly I planned to make a trip up to see my Mom, Dad, Brother (and his sweet new girl friend…I have only seen pictures and snap chat videos, but she strikes me as a kind soul… sometimes you can just look at someone and know… its in the eyes), and of course my puppy sister Jenny. I even took a vacation day yesterday so that I could spend the day driving and have a full Friday, Saturday, and most of Sunday visiting…. And here I am… at my moms kitchen table… drinking chilled chocolate almond iced coffee…

But getting back to the early part of this week and yesterday…. whoever said marriages were easy is secretly a liar… nothing is ever perfect… it is true… even when you love someone soooo much and you are the perfect pair… there is always bound to be SOMETHING that gets on your nerves… this week was one of those weeks… it hasn’t been particularly the greatest… so I am glad I got to get away… by myself… on a solo trip…

All I need is to clear my head…

So on the way here yesterday I finished listening to the entire book White Hot Truth: Clarity for keeping it real on your spiritual path – from one seeker to another By Danielle LaPorte. And let me tell you… it has helped me get back to that place where I feel spiritually connected to myself, my Divine Feminine, and God… as a spiritual seeker I have gone through WAVES… sometimes BIG ones… of being connected and then feeling lost in the ocean somewhere… But I’m so thankful for that book… because it REMINDED me of that JOY I get when I feel so connected… and it came at the right time… This year, to say the least, has been a CRAZY… There have been SO many changes I was having a hard time keeping up… I started to loose myself in all the chaos and I began to feel heavily not connected… I had a million people needing my attention and I gave and gave and gave until I had a melt down… being a working mom is HARD… I had to let people know that I WAS TIRED… really overwhelmed… and now… I’m starting to get back to me… taking care of myself and my spiritual needs… I am taking THIS time here in Virginia to get grounded again… listen to what God has to say and get back on track…

Yesterday was coincidentally the last day of Summer, Peace Day, and a New Moon… so A LOT OF ENERGY was floating around… I had an almost 9 hour drive to listen to my book, listen to my thoughts, listen to Michael Jackson and David Bowie… and just breathe. So on the last day of Summer I thought about the early part of the year and decided that NOW is the time to be GRATEFUL (as always, no matter the time, be grateful) and make a pact with myself to get reconnected… I set that new moon intention and I’m feeling into it…

NEW MOON in Virgo/Libra…

So we are slowly coming to the end of the Virgo Season in the sun sky… and what a perfect time to have a New Moon in Virgo and Libra… With these two signs and the Virgo sun there are some things that we can learn from them… VIRGO, the healer, the mother…the nurturer… it reminds me to take time to take care of myself and the ones around me… for me, I have been spending so much time taking care of others here lately that I neglected myself… so I am devoting this weekend to take care of myself… because YOU have to be well to take care of others… I am looking forward to this revitalizing boost! And then LIBRA, the scales… FINDING BALANCE…. oh gracious RIGHT…. finding that balance between taking care of yourself and others… it’s tricky… and hard at times… but I got this… BALANCE, the Sky above, Earth below, and PEACE WITHIN…

So now I am here on this First day of Fall… and I am excited! I snuggled my brother who I hadn’t seen in a while… sat in the “Mom room” with Jenny and snuggled her… I have already gone on a walk… witnessed God’s great Earth…the trees, the sun… grass and plants… I am about to finish up drinking my chilled coffee and finish my mustard puff pastry… and then do some yoga… maybe sip on some Rose… and then later I’ll take a stroll in Downtown Manassas with my mom…

This…. is going to be a good season!

Love & Moonlight,

Kelly

P.S. Fall is my FAVORITE season… hands down!

New Moon Solar Eclipse Virgo/Leo.

New Moon in Virgo with a Solar Eclipse with a taste of Leo at the beginning.

This one is a BIG one. So many emotions. Yesterday was the big eclipse and unfortunately the clouds, here in Savannah, hid it from view. Nonetheless I stood outside like everyone else hoping to catch a small glimpse…but instead just got drizzled on. Still pretty cool to be outside while it was happening. Later on in the day there was a magical sunset…so that made up for it…

Here is to new beginnings… and big ones at that… being that Virgo is my sun sign I thought it was pretty cool that the eclipse happened in Virgo, although some may even say Leo. 

For me I’m going with Virgo… and making my new Moon intentions pure. The purify my life and body… at the end of last week I decided to give vegetarianism a go AGAIN with working myself to veganism. I’m still eating dairy and eggs until I can wean that off to… I tried once before and tried to go straight vegan cold turkey…. and that DID NOT work… ironic. My belly bloated uncomfortably…. and it was a bit shocked. So this time I’m going in more mindfully… with probiotics on board… making smaller changes to clean my gut… plant based diet I’m coming after yooooou! I’m also taking vitamins for my skin, hair, and nails… just honoring and taking care of the vessel I was given… I’m also building my stones and crystals collection with my youngest daughter Uma. So that’s fun! Just trying to live more mindfully!

But anyways:.. I’m in a van on the way to Vidalia to see patients… and I’m beginning to ramble… 

Thursday I’m headed to Florida with Uma for a much needed relaxation… going to spend quality time with her and my younger sister Meghan…

Time to take a nap…

Love & Moonlight,

PSS. Take this time to purify your life… let go of the past… move forward… purify… simplify… channel your inner Virgo

No Grit… No Pearl…

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

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,

Pisces New Moon.2-26-17

New Moon in Pisces. 

Pisces is the last sign on the zodiacal wheel… I like to think of a new Moon in Pisces as EXTRA special. Together they represent the ending of a cycle with a NEW BEGINNING. This is an OPPORTUNITY…a gift to you. Maybe you have been stuck in a habit you want to stop or change…..now is the time to BREAK that habit and start fresh. Hard…but POSSIBLE. If anything…PLANT that seed to stop the habit you want to get rid of…and then water that desire everyday until you break open that seed for your flower to bloom. It just takes that first step. 

Love & Moonlight,

New Moon Afterthoughts.


New Moon

This past new Moon was especially heart warming for me…for the first time (of many to come) I got together with a group of my friends to tap into our inner goddesses and set intentions together. 

It is extremely crazy how the universe works and how by making movements, even the smallest, towards the things you want in life will bring you an abundance of love and goodness…it truly pays to make those movements…when I decided to work on myself and join yoga teacher training I wasn’t expecting what I found…

I joined up with a group of 21 other likeminded students who have all blown me away with how kindred in spirit they are to me…unexpectedly. Even when it comes to the moon, sun, and the universe…I found the they too are moon loving goddesses…and from that Daisy came up with the idea to meet every new Moon to draw goddess cards together to set an intention for the lunar month that goes along with what the card/goddess represents…

I drew Abundantia…and I’ve got to say…She came at just the right moment…I’m so open to giving and receiving abundance in my life…nothing is holding me back…

Yesterday I met up with my mentor and fellow mentees…see here:


I have been going through some personal awakenings and at this meeting I got the answers I needed in my current….some heavy words I needed to here from my mentor Kelley (in the middle). She reminded me that life is about now…and even though you have to work through HARD decisions and you don’t know what to do, but have to make them….you can’t screw it up…no matter what decision you make…YOU CAN’T SCREW IT UP…no matter what you decide, that is exactly where and what you were supposed to decide. Your life doesn’t end when you make decisions…you can’t screw it up…I CAN’T SCREW IT UP…it’s just not possible. So I’ll be sending out abundance and what I get in return will be EXACTLY what I need…no question.  

I’ve got this…I’m living the life I choose to live…I give abundance and I invite it in…

Love & Moonlight,

Kelly
