🌕Strawberry Full Moon in Sagittarius🌕
The Archer ♐️ The Seeker of Truth
Themes: Freedom. Connection. Positive Growth.
How can you use your TRUTH to manifest your DESIRES? The path to wisdom and truth is a path of balance.
#Sagittarius, the Archer, is focused on their target. They do not miss. Be mindful of where your attention goes- stay focused! We all love the experience of the music that comes from the energetic strings of our bonds to family and friends, but what lessons have you learned within these relationships in regards to our compassion, love and values? Expect extra luck and balance in our connections to others and pursuing our passions! Discover what security, sensuality and silliness mean to you! Gather together tonight with loved ones tonight, practice yoga, dance and open your mind… under the light of the Strawberry Moon 🌕🍓✨ Join me tonight at Dockweiler Fire Pits for laughter meditation, hoop flow and a bonfire this lovely Strawberry Full Moon 🍓🍓🍓✨ Address: 12000 Vista Del Mar, Playa Del Ray 90293
Practice: Start in Down Dog. Bend arms and come onto forearms. Release neck in a straight line with your back. Press through elbows. Hold 45 secs – couple mins.
Practice: Start in bridge pose. Press pelvis up. Flip palms face down and plant them next to your shoulders. Press up. Be mindful that feet face forwards and do not turn out (turn out will compress your lower spine). Take 6-8 slow deep breaths. Slowly lower down, mindful of head, roll body in a ball. Roll for recovery.
Practice: Sit back to back with a friend. Cactus arms out. Interlock forearms and palms. Take a deep breath. On the exhale, partner b leans backward as partner a leans forward, stretching partner b. Take 3 breaths. Return to upright and repeat to stretch partner a.
This is probably my favorite stretch for shoulder/back pain caused by computer posture. Half eagle, just the arms. It opens you up!
Practice: Standing or sitting, stretch and reach arms up on inhale. Exhale arms extended in front of you. Bend elbows. Lift and wrap right forearm over left. Press palms together. Chin should be straight. Lift elbows while pressing palms. Feel the relief!
I sincerely hope these stretches open up your shoulders! Please incorporate these wonderful asanas into your daily practice. In time you’ll feel more relaxed and loose in your shoulders, and hopefully your emotionally state as well!
Lots of love and light to you, space explorers!

Living that #NotMyPresident lifestyle anyone?
This blog mini-series is called Solutions. I’m going to show you the most effective and simplest ways to live a life of protest for the good our planet. By making tiny adjustments in our lifestyle, we can significantly reduce energy consumption and help stop climate change.
Today’s Solution is Thrifting!
Did you know that the fashion industry is one of the top contributors to climate change? The fashion industry is also creating irreversible damage to our global water supply- from toxic dyes used to make clothing.
Did you know the US makes up the largest percentage of the global market for clothing?! As the primary consumers of this market, WE have the biggest impact on this pollution. Real change will start with us!
This lifehack is easy. Do not spend your hard earned money on cheap and quick fashion. Be educated of where your clothing comes from. Upcycle more. Donate or give away old clothing. Thrift. Shop local, handmade. Shop eco-friendly.
If enough people do this, we will inspire brands to find new, environmentally sustainable ways to produce their clothing.
Thrifting is a lot of fun. You never know WHAT you’ll find thrifting. There are always brands we love, in good condition and at a great price. People discover designer digs while thrifting all the time, you know.
Maybe your community hosts a monthly or weekly flea market. If you’re lucky, you’ll score some really sick vintage finds, or find new local art you fall in love with. I go to Melrose Trading Post on Fairfax and Melrose on Sundays, and I’ve scored some really unique handmade / vintage home goods, clothes, shoes and jewelry!
Last year, I decided to stop purchasing “new”, unless it was locally made, sustainably sourced, thrifted, up-cycled or handmade. The first couple of months were hard, but then when I got serious and focused on the intentions of my shopping actions, I started to manifest all of the furniture I wanted, second hand and as gifts! I haven’t looked back on shopping new.
The vibe of my wardrobe shifted when I minimized my stuff and started shopping with better intentions. My style is eclectic, it’s different- and I get excited to tell people how I find the clothes I wear. I give away clothes I don’t wear, I clear out my closet every year to local thrift stores, and I try not to shop that often. I like having a versatile wardrobe, with a few long-term quality handmade pieces.
Try this fun life hack for a couple months, I’d love to hear about the magic YOU discover! Tell me in the comments!
Themes: Clean. Simplify. Release.
The Full Moon in Virgo provokes our Warrior Spirit. It is time for radical self healing, time to clean & organize all dimensions of our lives. The rise of the Divine Feminine, Joan of Arc archetypes are channeled by Virgo, the Virgin Maiden. Be mindful of old programming that may prevent you from accessing the entire spectrum of empowered feminine energy. Notice how your thinking influencing your interactions with feminine energy. It’s good to be soft, gentle, moody, and witty. Let it flow!
Virgo’s clean-it-up charisma reminds us that in order to be effective, we must clear space and put a structure in place. A Full Moon signals it’s time to let go, now is a good time to let something go in order to create space for something new. Tap into this powerful manifestation power with a pen and paper, and write down what no longer serves you. Burn this paper under the light of the moon, imagining yourself releasing that which no longer serves you. Let go. Surrender. Aho 🙏 May blessings and good wishes find you, Star Seeds!
Yesterday a comet whizzed by Earth during the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo 😽 Bringing with it fiery loving energy, it is a time to be noticed and praised with feline ferocity! But, don’t be blinded by the illusion of your separateness from the whole. Miracles are happening all around you. At times you may even feel responsible for their grace. Remember that miraculous things do not happen because of you, they happen through you and within the environment around you. Be mindful of your ego- don’t let it eclipse your relationships with Others. Leo energy on it’s shadow side can be Self-centered. Don’t take your Self too seriously right now. Remember that when you move in alignment with the force of Light, miracles like these are bound to happen.
🔥 Full Moons are a time for letting go, just as the moon will now shed her Light to go Dark. Prepare in your mind a thought that no longer serves you. Write this thought down, and with care, light it on fire. Let it go. This is Leo energy baby, play with a little fire today 🔥
Today I’m going to teach you 3 special moves to relieve body tension caused by Anxiety using Trigger Points. All you need is a blue ball! The one I’m using is a racquetball and it’s excellent- you could also use trigger point therapy balls. Anxiety is an unwelcome, overreaction of survival instincts- If we heal the physical tension from an attack, we also reduce the anxiety we experience.
For years I found no reprieve from the physical tension caused by chronic anxiety attacks. My body got so used to tight traps and dorsal muscles- it felt normal for my shoulders to be tense by my ears. When I started practicing yoga, I became aware of the tension in my neck and shoulders from these chronic attacks. One day in class, @tinyyogini brought out some balls for us to play with and showed us these techniques. The moment I felt the ball push into my shoulder, I almost wanted to cry for happiness because it felt so good on my tight shoulders. After a few weeks, I noticed a huge difference in my posture from working on these trigger points. Releasing this tension reduced the severity of the anxiety attacks and made them more controllable. I sincerely hope this helps you 🙏
