Cancer Full Moon (1/12/17): Critical Care for The Inner Self

Posted on 1/9/2017 by Alanna Kaivalya in Alanna Kaivalya Alchemical Ritual Astrological Reading Cancer Full Moon self-care Invocation

The first full moon of the year lights up in the sign of Cancer and illuminates all the key cancer qualities surrounding your emotions, the unconscious, and any healing work that needs to be done. Cancer, as the mother of the zodiac, holds the space for nurturing and communing with your deep needs and desires. That which is left untended in our psyche cries out the loudest, and like a small child, needs care from the mothering aspect within us. We are all capable of taking care of ourselves and doing the shadow work necessary to undo emotional traumas and deeply hidden complexes.

Yoga Breathing: The Three Part Breath

Posted on 10/16/2016 by Ashley Josephine in Yoga Sutras self-care Chakras enlightenment Ashley Josephine Bandhas Three Part Breath Abdominal Thoracic Breathing

Yama Niyama Asana Pranayama Pratyahara Dharana Dhyana Samadhi. In English (my translation): Be a good person, take care of your Self, be aware of your posture, control your energy, withdraw from your external senses, concentrate, meditate, allow total integration. These are the steps on the path, outlined in Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, to enlightenment. I have talked about the Yamas and Niyamas a little bit, the whole world is obsessed with posture, albeit not always healthy posture, meditation is gaining popularity, and the other steps are pretty much forgotten. There are many reasons for this. It’s hard to teach the Yamas and Niyamas unless you’re ready for a self-help course with a philosophy book as a reading requirement. Sense withdrawal is the nicer way of saying sensory deprivation and that is being sold the same way tanning is sold these days. Concentration sounds boring, even though we all know it’s necessary and we could probably use it more then ever what with all the distractions of the internet. Total integration is admittedly optimistic, unrealistic, and metaphysical sounding all at the same time, so I get why people stay away.

Solar Eclipse + New Moon in Virgo (9/1/16): Embrace a New Layer of Healing

Posted on 8/26/2016 by Alanna Kaivalya in transformation Alanna Kaivalya self-care Solar Eclipse Alchemical Ritual Healing Energy Astrological Reading New Moon in Virgo September Astrology

September features two eclipses in a row, starting with a solar eclipse during the new moon in Virgo on September 1st. The next event is a lunar eclipse during the full moon in Pisces on September 16th. This makes all of September an incredibly potent month to start, end, renew, reevaluate and deepen all areas of life. The energy of an eclipse lasts six month or more, so use the preliminary energy of Virgo in the month to be cautious and careful of all you cultivate during this cosmic time. The lunar eclipse in Pisces is a good time to immerse yourself in transcendence and oneness, and let go of all that doesn’t serve your spiritual needs.

Virgo Full Moon (Monday - 2/22/16) : Harvesting the Wisdom of the Night Goddess

Posted on 2/17/2016 by Alanna Kaivalya in health yoga Alanna Kaivalya self-care Virgo Full Moon Well-being Fruits of Labor

Virgo, the great goddess of the night sky, embodies the properties of nurturing, self-care and cleanliness. Often misunderstood as simply, “the virgin,” Virgo gives us much richer feminine qualities than the sanitized virginal element she is often believed to represent. This Virgo Full Moon invites us to explore the most potent qualities of the feminine (regardless of our gender identity) and let go of those overdone, negative qualities that are passé, such as, martyrdom, self-criticism and control…these things always get in the way of our fullest expression and leave us fearful of simply being who we are, which Virgo energy calls us to be.
