Tonight is the new moon, does anyone have any good plans? On the new moon I always take a ritual bath under the light of nothing but the stars.

The new moon is when I take the time to make new intentions for the next moon phase. Whether you believe that the moon helps with your energy in a spiritual way, or if you simply like to re evaluate your goals once a month as a secular self care practice. Its a good way to remember and keep up with your current priorities.

During the last moon phase a lot happened in my life. I graduated my Yoga Teacher Training 200 hour, I started selling registrations for my Wild Self Love Yoga Workshop, I started this website. It was really hard some days, but those fears are understandable so I am giving myself a break for my emotional moments.

That was so last moon phase though, am I right?

I implore you to consider these questions as you go through this wonderful sequence I created to honor this time of the month:

What can I do in the next two weeks to make my life full of fire and passion?

What kind of things am I passionate about?

What is stopping me?

 

We are moving into the season of Leo. Perfect time to think about the people and things you love.
