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!

Pisces Full Moon Salutations.

About that FULL MOON in Pisces…

This one…is a bit ironic for me… Pisces, the Fishes, a water sign…. AND A BIG HUGE HURRICANE is headed this way… eek! Hopefully it’ll turn the other way and fade off. But I must say… I am a bit scared. Last hurricane we had a bunch of trees fall over (some still uprooted but leaning on other trees)…. and that was only a category 1… this one is much bigger and there still is no telling if it’ll make it to Coastal GA yet… 

BUT… I refuse to let fear run my life… Tonight I’ll be teaching a Full Moon Salutations Yoga class and tapping into my creative side. Pisces also happens to be my rising sign and I’ve been feeling a little disconnected with my creative nature… so it is about time I play around with creativity tonight… let go of fear and move along my path…

Pisces is a creative, wildly open, sign… and I feel like tonight I want to free myself of all things that try to keep me in a box… and let my soul be just as creative and wildly free as it should be…

And if you want to hang out tonight…

YOGA CLASS IS TONIGHT!! Come do some Full Moon Salutations with me at 6:45-7:45 pm at Life Moves Dance Studio in Richmond Hill, GA! #bestillandknow and #praisedance to glow.

Feeling love burst within me…

Full Moon in Capricorn this Weekend.

I woke up Sunday morning at 5 am naturally to this crazy Capricorn Full Moon in Haleiwa, Hawaii. My first morning here.. like magic it happened. I am sort of speechless from this experience… 

Capricorn… the Sea-Goat… this water sign was meant to be in this moment… emotions and water works and a week full of joy… I’m exploring the island where I spent my teenage years… this, in a way, is HOME for me… my alma mater… the place where I grew up into a young lady… those years were the best years… the years that shaped me… 

I’m so glad I had this opportunity to come back.. to connect back.. and BE back.., in these moments…

Emotions run on high in Capricorn Full Moons… don’t be surprised if you find yourself crying… whether it be raw or just our joy….

Love & Moonlight,

Kelly

PS. I’ll post an insane Hawaiian post of all my pics and videos later…for now, I’m just going to soak it all in! 

New Moon in Libra.

New Moon Flow…


Balance.

Balance.

Balance.

Yin.

Yang.

Yin.

Yang.

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,

Kelly.

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…

 

 

 

Moving Through It.


Moving Through It.

Pain. It is there. It’ll keep on coming…in some form or another. Naturally, it is in our human make up to feel this feeling. Sometimes the pain is worse in certain situations. Sometimes it HURTS LIKE HELL. But it doesn’t mean that it is you…

You have to meet it when it comes…whether you loose someone you love, to a break up you wish never happened, to a divorce, to a disappointment, to a bad grade, or something that didn’t go as planned…the pain will come…and you will have to meet it when it does.

Sometimes the pain and frustration you feel leaves you so completely vulnerable…but my friend…you have to feel these feelings to grow….you have to feel these feelings to break your heart…your heart will break a million times in your lifetime…and every time you’ll grow from it. AND IT WILL MOVE THROUGH YOU.

But let it come….let it break you down…CRY, CRY, AND CRY SOME MORE. But DON’T let it squat there….let it break you and THEN SHINE ON. If you give it one really good cry….you’ll feel better. But then LEARN FROM IT….GROW FROM IT…and move on and SHINE ON. Because ultimately it is NOT you…

YOU are evolving…

Love & Moonlight,

Kelly

PS. It really is okay to cry…and it’s even better to cry LOUDLY….you’ll feel better when you’re done…and then SHINE ON…RIGHT ON. AND LET IT GO…

 

 

 

Sacred. Always in All Ways.

Making room for light…

Rise on…

Shine on…

“The wound is where the light enters you.” -Rumi

This is a friendly reminder: You are not the pain you feel. The pain, my friend, is what breaks open your heart to let the light in. What shines through… is you. 

You are sacred… You are whole… And you are loved. 

Let this be a life call. Honor your sacredness. Listen to your heart. Kindle your sacred flame and SHINE ON. 

It’s not enough to go through the motions. Dig deeper. It’s not enough to play by the rules. Play harder. It’s not enough to live by expectations. Break boundaries

Life waits for no one. Answer those life calls before they stop calling. For the love of love…Life is calling. 

And if you haven’t witnessed your own innate sacred divine self…open your eyes. You have been there all along.

Find those who love like you do. 

And let the light on through…you have a sacred heart. 

Love & Moonlight, 

Kelly

Full Moon Sagittarius with a Capricorn Flair.


Full Moon Sagittarius…With a Capricorn Flair. 

Y’all. This. Is. IT. A Summer Solstice with a Full Moon…can it get any more magical than that!? I don’t know…but what I do know is that NOW is a time for BIG revelations, BIG TRUTHS, and BIG changes. If you haven’t already…THANK yourself for being you. The TRUTH is OUT THERE. It’s up to YOU to find it and see the signs AND BELIEVE IN YOUR INNER TRUTH. Yes, this is big…and maybe even a little intimidating and slightly scary. But I assure you, YOUR inner truth is right there in front of you. Sagittarius….that truth seeking ARCHER…Man, she’s begging you to AIM and SHOOT.

If you’ve been searching for your inner divine being…take some time tonight to say HELLO. It is there…waiting for you. Tonight and for the next few days you may come to the realization of your inner truth…caution to the wind, you might just come to the realization but it might not be the time to make that change…it might take a day, two days, a couple months…you might even have to plan it out…or maybe tonight is the night…you’ve thought about…are you ready?

Capricorn flair is sending vibes to be oriented and calculated. Make this one count. NOW is the time for YOU…even if you take a baby step. That’s one step closer to FREEDOM. ONE step closer to your inner divine. Capricorn is just that goal oriented…baby steps…OR GIANT steps…YOU know your limits….Sagittarius knows your truth.

For me…I’VE BEEN LIVING MY LIFE like I want…I’ve nearly done yoga EVERY DAY…EVERY DAY…whether it be at the yoga studio or on my back porch…I’M DOING ME…and being me. And I’ve got to tell you….it feels GREAT. I’m by no means perfect…BUT I’M ON IT…on my journey…to my inner truth. Every day…I’m connecting deeper within myself…and it makes me smile.

Love & Moonlight,

Kelly

PS. Are you ready…let’s make life GRAND.

Lotus Flow.


Lotus Flow inspired. Everyday I find a new stretch..breathing deeper into each move. I find myself growing. Flowing. I am truly on the right path. 

Love & Moonlight, 

Kelly

New Moon in Gemini.


New Moon in Gemini.

Everyone should have a Gemini in their life. I have a strong affection towards this sign…considering it shares the same ruling planet Mercury (the communication planet) as my Sun Sign Virgo. Something about the intellectual side of the Gemini is stimulating…both Gemini and Virgo are just that…intellectual. In fact they are the only two signs in the Zodical Wheel that share the same ruling planet…all other signs don’t share a planet. 

To add, Gemini’s have a very charismatic and charming quality to them. They are the friend of all friends and they are always there for you if you need them. 

They are always thirsting for knowledge and may have a hard time sitting still. They like adventure and a change of scenery quite frequently. You might even have a hard time keeping up with a Gemini. Gemini’s also have the gift of gab and can be very talkative…Some may even say scatterbrained as they always seem to have multiple projects going at one time. 

TO THE MOON…

Tonight and for the next few days you may feel like you have a lot to say. You and everyone around you might be seeking stimulating conversations. Thanks Gemini. Take care with your words and make a conscious effort to LISTEN as well. It’s easy getting carried away with words…just remember that a conversation has two people (or more) so take care to LISTEN as well. What is that saying again?

Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply.” – Stephen R. Covey

Read that quote…and take care with how you listen. Be mindful in your listening. Sometimes just listening is enough…no reply needed. 

Tonight is a good night to set an intention. Or start something new. Tonight is a new beginning. 

For me…I want to radiate with love, grace, and adventure. I want to write more and let my stories come to life. I want to be a friend of all friends. I want to be a confidant and sounding board. I want to be mindful in all my actions. 

Sarah just wants a taco. 

Love & Moonlight, 

Kelly

PS. Gemini’s know how to have a good time…they can bring you out of your shell and if you pay attention you might just find the adventurer within you.

PSS. Shout out to Grandpa Skandamis…one of the most charming Gemini’s I’ve ever known! Your loving nature is what I aspire to have and radiate. You are an inspiration. I love you!
