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.

Full Moon In Gemini. 

Tonight the FULL MOON is in Gemini. Can you feel the frenzy? I can.

Gemini…the Twins…is all about communication. The Gemini has a tendency to go, go, go…and is always talking or listening…they can’t sit still. A Gemini can often become bored and a bit chaotic if their minds aren’t challenged…it’s all with good intent. They need to know. They need to see. They need to feel. They need to be heard. Sometimes they get ahead of themselves because their minds are going 100 miles per hour…they are already thinking about the next step. Sometimes they can appear to be listening but really they are on to the next thought and have already guessed what you are about to say. After all, for the Gemini, their curious minds are always running and their thirst for knowing something new is never tiring. They are quite charming, charismatic, and intellectual.

THE strategy to conquer the Gemini mind is to stop for a moment to breathe. You have to ground yourself every once and a while or you’ll go mad. Ground yourself. Find your center. Find your soul. When you feel the Gemini part of you getting out of control and your mind has turned chaotic…pause. Stop thinking. And ground yourself. Tap into the Gemini who is the teacher. Teach yourself to be calm. Teach yourself to just sit with yourself and with God the eternal formless force. Find that union.

So tonight…if you are feeling the frenzy….be still. Be still and let all those thoughts fade away. Become heavily meditated. YES meditated.  MEDITATE.

Love & Moonlight,

Kelly

P.S. For my grounding I did two sessions of yoga at The Awakening Yoga center tonight…one was a vinyasa flow and the other was a flow & restore. I needed that. I needed it really bad. I felt clear headed and good after. I’ve seen a difference in my life since I’ve really gotten deep into yoga…although I am not completely healed just yet. There are things in my life that I don’t understand and have had a hard time letting go of. One day I will understand…and one day I’ll learn to let go. (That is a very hard thing to do.) Steven Forrest suggests (when talking about Gemini and their strategies in The Inner Sky) is to “Give the universe permission to not make any sense.” Easier said then done.

Find Your Sanctuary 


Lotus.

Tonight I felt like being spontaneous. Figures…the moon is in Aires. I finally set up an instagram account for just this website where I’ll post about the moon, yoga, herbs, mother nature, and my personal spiritual journey complete with photos of my personal sanctuary…I felt like I needed a space to share just my spiritual things only…you can find me on instagram at:

@thewaldenmoon

and also @kellywally (where I post all kinds of things like family, meme’s, jokes, moon stuff, yoga, and all kinds of random things).

I also linked my website and new instagram to my new Twitter account:

@thewaldenmoon

I just have to do a couple more things to get everything linked and working together…tech nerd things. But I felt like I needed to do this next step…I started this blog this summer…and I’m SLOWLY but surely building my sanctuary.

Love & Moonlight,

Kelly

New Moon in Scorpio

The moon entered Scorpio last night…at the new moon phase. This is a time to set an intention/goal for this lunar cycle.

Sorry but I have been pretty busy lately and this will be short. 

Scorpio..:the scorpion:. Think about what is present in your life right now. Are you living the life you want? Are you living on auto pilot? The Scorpio is here to jolt you awake…start living the life you want and be mindful of what you are doing. No more auto pilot…live intentionally and mindfully. 

Love & Moonlight,

Kelly 

P.S. the moon is in Sagittarius at the moment…but the new moon phase started in Scorpio. Because the new moon phase lasts about 2ish-3 days, it can move to the next zodiac sign during the new moon phase. So here is a side tip from Sagittarius… KNOWLEDGE. Get it. Learn it. If in your life you want to live a certain way…learn how to…and then do it. If you’re an aspiring bee charmer…learn how to charm the pants off of some bees and make some honey. (Shout out to my bee charming friend TJana in Alabama). 

Building Stately Palaces by Candlelight

  
There is something to be said about living mindfully…it takes patience and intention to really pay attention and live that way. It’s hard. It really is. 

I truly believe in living the life you want. As I get older I’ve become more aware of this. I’ve noticed the patterns in my life that have gotten me here…some of which I’d love to let go of…some of which I’d like to show more of. I am very aware. And very scared. Scared of needed change. 

What would it take to change some old habits? Would it rock the foundation I’ve already built? Yes. Would I be better for it? Yes. What would it take to start living the way I want? 

I suppose I’ve already begun. Slowly but surely…I’m building myself a stately palace by candlelight. I’m changing. 

Love & Moonlight,

Kelly 

Last Quarter Moon in Leo…with my deep reflection.

By Jongmee

Illustration by Jongmee

I have been feeling incredibly grateful as of late…and have been inspired even more. The power of synchronicity has me in awe and I can’t sit quiet any longer…I must share.

For the past year I have been paying attention to myself and my body a lot more than I ever have before. Just a year ago I started taking yoga classes here and there…but never really consistently. If you recently read I finally took the plunge and signed up for unlimited yoga with an auto-draft out of my account every month. It was my way of holding myself accountable to actually GO to yoga class every week…if I’m paying for it monthly…then I had better go. So far…I can feel a shift in my whole being. I’m making time for me…and I’m taking responsibility.

Which brings me to another personal goal (which I originally wasn’t going to share) ….but I HAVE TO NOW!. For the past few weeks I have been talking about making November “NO WINE NOVEMBER” in attempt to limit my indulgence (for example…if I have one glass of wine, then I’ll want two…and then sometimes three). Well…that is all good and well but…what about those extra calories…what about working and writing and creating artwork with A CLEAR HEAD? Wine started to look like more of an escape for me rather than a special occasion…AND it makes me sleepy…so on the days that I spent daydreaming at work about coming home to write a really good post or draw something spectacular, wine winked and convinced me that if I had a glass I could relax more and create better…WRONG!!! It just made me more tired and I would end up asleep with no inspired work to share. So hence my “NO WINE NOVEMBER” goal has been set and I’m sticking to it (this includes all alcohol btw)…I’m going to get that IN CHECK…and then once I’ve punished it for this whole month I’ll limit my wine to special occasions like Christmas dinners, holiday dinners, fancy dinners, and if I’m cooking with wine then I can have a glass while I’m cooking. I don’t want to be the lady who is always buying wine at the grocery store…just because she can. Well…it gets better.

So as I am sitting here expressing myself to my family and friends and inviting anyone along who wants to join the challenge with me….God was sending me the vibes. After I told everyone who I wanted to know about my challenge I checked my e-mail and got my astrology newsletter… from HERE. NOW IF THAT DOESN’T GIVE YOU THE CHILLS…I don’t know what would. IT IS IN THE STARS MAN! Stinking Saturn is about to square Neptune CHALLENGING us to “sober up” for the month of November….AAAAAH. Saturn being the disciplinary planet! Y’all. God didn’t put those stars and planets in the sky for nothing. Just LOOK UP!

Phew…sorry that was long…BUT gah…what synchronicity. 

Getting on to the moon…it is now a half moon in the Last Quarter moon phase and it is in Leo. Time to reflect (which I just did above)…and give THANKS for how far you have come. Really think about what has happened in the past and learn from it…but dear please do not dwell on it. Take what you need from it and move forward. If the past hurts…honey GET UP AND DANCE IT OFF. Stretch it off…flick it off. The Leo urges you to be playful. Laugh it off. What is done is done…YOU have right NOW. So make RIGHT NOW yours. There is nothing that is holding you back. I’ll leave you with this beautiful quote:

“God. 

the eternal

unchanging

formless force

beneath the ever changing forms.

I am. you are. we are.

that.”

-Jes Allen

Just read that over and over and take a look around.

Love & Moonlight,

Kelly

November…Hello.

   
 
So all the Halloween is boxed up…pumpkins remain with one scallywag ghost that decided to stick around. Time for some fall reading and tea. 

Feeling that it’s going to be a crafty and belly full November! 

Love & Moonlight,

Kelly

Full Moon in Taurus.

So the moon waxed into full last night…into Taurus. I’d have to say that every zodiac sign that falls on a full moon is my favorite…for one reason or another.

Taurus gives me a sense of balance…it gives me this direct feeling of full force of the bull but the gentle reminder that the bull is from this earth. Gentle. Unassuming. Mistaken at times. Yes, it can sometimes be intimidating on the surface, but deep down it is grounded…earthy.

Tonight and last night you may have felt like you could conquer the world…and rightly so, you could do whatever you please, if you really wanted to (but who wants the whole world really?)…while throwing caution to the wind seems romantically romantic…the Taurus reminds us of balance…of being grounded…and with that balance…little steps into a world of YOUR OWN develops…driven by your own desires…you can create YOUR OWN world…a creative life. After all…we are all seeking our truer selves.

Find your balance. Find what drives you and ground it into reality. 

Love & Moonlight,

Kelly

First Quarter Moon…Currently in Capricorn…But Moving into Aquarius at 9:38 pm tonight.

By Ida Rentoul Outhwaite

By Ida Rentoul Outhwaite

Oh yes…you first quarter moon phase. You are just in time for some change. As the moon sits right now…it is half full and in Capricorn. But Aquarius will be taking center stage in just a few short hours.

What does this mean? Well…today you may have felt the urge to work, work, work (thanks Capricorn)…maybe even set your emotions aside to get a job done. But alas…AQUARIUS is on it’s way….and Aquarius has some soul questions to ask tonight…

Tonight…as you get ready for bed….think about today. Think about what happened. Think about what you have been thinking about…AND THINK SOME MORE.

Tonight may be a good night to think about your options…think about a decision you have been putting off…or just reflect on what your new moon intention or goal was for this lunar cycle. Aquarius asks you….WHAT DOES FREEDOM MEAN TO YOU?

How do you define freedom? Like really? How do you define freedom? That is one of the hardest questions to answer….and often times I look for the answer….by way of signs…searches…questioning.  Aquarius wants to know….what does freedom mean to you? If ANYBODY has a good answer….let me know! Comment…or send me a message…Because I want to know!

Love & Moonlight,

Kelly

P.S. I am going to try and refrain from rechecking my grammar on this one…and I’m going to let my grammar mistakes HANG OUT THERE….because tonight…I’m just relaxing. Mmmmk. Bye.

P.S.S. See that dragonfly…um…symbolizing some change! MAKE A DECISION. Define your freedom! Thank you! Period. The End. Amen.
