September full Moon is known, this year as Harvest Moon, 

If you have been following my blog post you know I like to explain what each full moon energy is about and before that I share with you information about the names of the moons each month.

Unlike other full Moon names, which are specific to their respective months, the Harvest Moon depends on an astronomical event: the autumnal equinox, this is the first day of autumn in the NorthAmerican countries and it will be the spring equinox in the SouthAmerican countries.

Historically, Native Americans gave a name to each month’s full Moon, naming it concerning a natural event or sign of the season. This aided them in tracking the progression of the year

The full Moon that happens nearest to the equinox (September 22 or 23) takes on the name “Harvest Moon,” rather than its traditional name, which means that a Harvest Moon may occur in either September or October.

This month’s full moon rises on the night of Friday, September 13, and reaches peak fullness at 12:33 a.m. EDT on the 14th.

As if this Harvest Moon wasn’t interesting enough already, September’s Full Moon will also be a “micro moon.”

A micro moon is exactly the opposite of the supermoon: a full moon that occurs when the Moon is at the farthest point in its orbit around Earth (the point of apogee). In other words, the Moon is about as far from Earth as it can get, causing it to appear about 7% smaller and 15% dimmer than usual.

Would you like to know more about the full moon meaning and its energy??

Here it goes:

The Sun opposite Moon brings your home, family and intimate relationships into sharper focus for the following two weeks of this moon phase. Opposing forces such as work versus home, or what you need versus what you want, create inner tension and external pressures. This can lead to conflict and crises that drain your energy.

The lunar qualities of emotions and instincts reach their peak at a full moon. So use your increased emotional strength and intuition to overcome any relationship challenges. Subconscious awareness allows for an impartial and balanced look at your relationships. You will see any relationship dynamics or negative feelings causing disharmony.

During the full moon, is the perfect time to release and let go what no longer serving you, what is not letting you grow.

I know.. it is a little bit of magical thought here, with fairies and unicorns. I choose to believe in it because it helps me; if I can analyze and realize what am I doing wrong I can implement positives changes, I can feel better, I can improve and evolve.

But that is the way I see it

Whether you’ve got old emotions flowing up to be released or you feel a little scattered. Remember that all things happen for a reason and in perfect timing.

September’s full moon offers healing energy to help us cleanse away anger and allow acceptance and forgiveness to set in.

See your life from a bigger perspective and understand these “traumas” needed to happen to help you spiritually grow. 

To release and let go, you have to start with the simple things, changes won’t happen overnight but if you work on the changes you want for you they will happen.

A way I like to do it is by practicing the moon salutation and focusing on what I want to let go while I am doing the practice. During these days I usually take time to perform a release ritual, like writing down what it is aI need to let go and release it helps me to be specific and take actions.

I am leaving here a link so you can have access to a free tutorial on how to perform the moon salutations and the release ritual guided form on pdf.

All for free 😊

YOU are meant to be here.

Embrace your path; anything in a state of decay in your life can be reborn. You can get to the cause of any bad habit or addiction. You can deeply probe under the surface to solve mysteries or investigate crimes and secrets. Your intuition is very strong and can guide on your journey in this world.

If you re-interest in letting go fears, insecurities and you would like to discover what are you capable of , I am hosting an Acroyoga & Rock Climbing Retreat in Cayman Brac.

We are going to spend 3 days and 3 night in paradise, focusing on your transformation by getting out of your comfort zone and exposing yourself to be brave, to be courageous, to trust and to find out you are capable of so much more.

I am leaving a LINK here with specific information about the Acroyoga & Climb Retreat with the early bird price discount!

Full “Thunder”Moon in July 2019

July’s full moon is known as the Full Buck Moon because a buck’s antlers are in full growth mode at this time. This full Moon was also known as the Thunder Moon because thunderstorms are so frequent during this month.
The Full Moon Names is being used in The Old Farmer’s Almanac come from Native American tribes, Colonial Americans, or other traditional North American names passed down through generations. Each full Moon name was applied to the entire lunar month in which it occurred.

July’s full moon is coming with a partial eclipse. This will be the last lunar eclipse of 2019, is visible on Tuesday, July 16th, from Australia, Africa, South America, most of Europe, and Asia.
The eclipse will miss North America, except for the very southern and eastern parts of the continent.

This Full Moon Lunar Eclipse invites us to face our fears, and accept the life lessons you’re currently being taught.

Like every full moon is time to release and let go what no longer positively serves you to make room for what you want.

This energy is going to be intense so take time to rest after a big release. You’re being stretched beyond your comfort zone to expand past your current limiting thoughts, beliefs, and emotions.

On top of all these energies changes, in July we are being influenced by mercury retrograde.

Did you heard about it but you don’t know what is it?

According to the age-old practice of astrology, we are all influenced by the effect of Mercury in retrograde. Due to the way our planet’s orbit interacts with the orbits of the other planets, they might sometimes appear to be traveling backward through the night sky concerning the zodiac. This is, in fact, an illusion, which we call apparent retrograde motion.
Three times a year, it appears as if Mercury is going backward. These times, in particular, were traditionally associated with confusions, delay, and frustration.
However, this is an excellent time to reflect on the past. It’s said that intuition is high during these periods, and coincidences can be extraordinary.

In 2019, Mercury will be in retrograde three times, during the date ranges of:

  • March 5 to 28
  • July 7 to August 2
  • October 31 to November 20

How this can affect us?

The planet Mercury rules communication, travel, contracts, automobiles, and such.
So, when Mercury is retrograde, remain flexible, allow extra time for travel, and avoid signing contracts. Double-check your email responses, check-in with reservations before you take that trip.
Review projects and plans at these times, but wait until Mercury is direct again to make any final decisions. You can’t stop your life, but plan ahead, have back-up plans and be prepared.
Some people blame Mercury retrograde for “bad” things that happen in their lives. Instead, this is a good time to sit back and review where you put your energy in your life. For example, if family and faith are important to you, are you putting your energies there or just overextended in other areas?
Take a moment to reflect. Mercury retrograde can be an excellent time to take a step back and reanalyze who you are and what you are doing—but do refrain from making any drastic changes until after retrograde has ended.

Like every month since 2018, I am hosting a yoga class by donation to fundraise Cayman’s Act of Random Kindness a non-profit organization in Grand Cayman.

May’s Flower Full Moon, What is it about?

According to the farmers almanac May’s full moon is in May 18th and known as the Full Flower Moon.
This is because in the norther hemisphere, May is notable for being the turning point in the year where temperatures rise and a vast variety of flowers come into full bloom, letting the world break out into a riot of color.

Some Native American tribes named May’s full moon as “The Corn Planting Moon”, considering this as the perfect time for them to start preparing the fields for farming and sowing the seeds saved up from last year; apart from corn, other foods such as beans, squash, and potatoes are planted during this time.

Bloom is everywhere.

Energetic wise, there is a heavy energy around this Full Moon that will be drawing us in and asking us to be honest listening to the depths of our heart and soul.
We are going to have to be gentle and patient with ourselves, and allow the magic of the Moon to do its work.

Every full moon it has the purpose to do some cleaning and make space to welcome all the new, positive things/ toughts/ intentions/ projects we would like to receive and focus on the new moon.

Take a moment and ask yourself ;

  • What is stoping you from reaching joy and happiness?
  • What is not letting you grow?

Pink Moon April 19th, 2019

April’s full moon is already here!

I don’t know you guys but time is flying for me.

Like almost every month I am here writing a post about the full moon energy with a brief description so you can learn more about it.

Since 2018 I got more and more interested in the how the moon can affects our emotional and spirituals states. Specially when is full

Long time ago, in ancient times, it was common to track the changing seasons by following the lunar month rather than the solar year, which the 12 months in our modern calendar are based on.

For millennia, people across Europe, as well as Native American tribes, named the months after features they associated with the Northern Hemisphere seasons, and many of these names are very similar or identical

Each tribe had its own names, hence the reason why it is also called the Egg Moon, Sprouting Grass Moon, Hare Moon, or Fish Moon. All of these moons conjure memories of April. Overtime, colonial Americans adopted these names as well, and today, they’re still just as important to our cultural consciousness.

The Pink Moon is specifically named after the reappearance of a dazzling set of flowers known as “wild ground phlox,” according to Farmer’s Almanac. These flowers drape over the green like a quilt of pink petals and its no wonder they inspired the name of the April moon.

Moss phlox (Phlox subulata)

Spiritually, the Pink Moon signifies rebirth and renewal. After a long, cold, gray, and miserable winter, (if you live in the norther hemisphere) resurgence of the color pink is a revitalising dose of beauty and joy.

It serves as a reminder that life is a set of ups and downs, a cycle of hibernation and reawakening. “The flowers may go away for a while but they always return, more beautiful than they’ve ever been before. Their color is appreciated in a new light, since we’ve all gone so long without embracing their poetic impact on our world”

The Pink Moon “brings the stability and security to crystallise recent changes and make them permanent improvements.”

Cherokee Billie, espiritual advisor

This is indeed a lucky time of year.  If you’ve been struggling at the first part of this year things should turn around for you if you pay attention and give thanks for this full Moon.

With April’s Full Moon come new beginnings, new growth and the perfect opportunity to take control of your life. It’s time to tap into that innate sense of power you have over your life.

Whatever intentions you set on a new moon always develops throughout the course of the waxing moon phase, until your desires blossom completely on the full moon.

Friday April 19th we will gather to celebrate this transformation with a Yoga Class by donation for Cayman’s Act of Random Kindness

We will practice Chandra Namaskar also know as Moon salutations.

A slow flow yoga sequence that invite us to cultivate the moon’s soothing lunar energy

What to bring?:

  • Your own yoga mat if you have it otherwise there will be viable at the studio and your water bottle.
  • Pen and paper to perform a release ritual at the closest beach ( weather permitted)

Time and place:

  • From 6 to 7pm
  • At Quintessential Movement Studio located in Galleria Plaza, George Town, Grand Cayman. Cayman Islands.

If you live in Grand Cayman or you are around you are welcome to join us in the practice.

We are moving forward on our spiritual journey and it’s not to our benefit to look back.  The past is over and it’s time to be in the here and now.  Do not worry about the future.  Only be concerned about where you are on your spiritual path NOW.

Whether this is your first time hearing the term “AcroYoga” or you are a seasoned practitioner, join us to explore the fundamentals of movement, dynamic transitions, communication, strength and flexibility of the body and the mind”

Chandra Namaskar (Moon Salutations) – Is a sequence which reveres and honours the energy of the moon, it involves moving to the right and left, and facing the long edge of the mat. The side stretches and circular movements of the sequence can be considered to represent the phases of the moon as it waxes and wanes. Chandra Namaskara is considered more yin in nature than the intrinsically yang Surya Namaskara. As such, Chandra Namaskara is a more cooling, meditative sequence of postures, which is ideally to be practiced in the evening.

Rock Climbing – Explore your verticality and see the world from a different angle! Rock climbing is perfect if you are looking to try something new and exciting. Focuses on top-rope climbing in a safe, fun, and casual environment. Absolutely no prior climbing experience is necessary. The climbing routes will be specifically chosen for the group, providing a customized and memorable experience at the Yogi Wall.

Ocean Cave Rappel – Stand on the edge of a cave 50ft off the ground overlooking the Caribbean Sea and get ready to descend! This mini-expedition is the ultimate combination of action and scenery. The perfect entry-level rappel tour for anyone who craves adventure.

First Full Moon of 2019 coming with a special gift

This first moon of 2019 is coming with a super especial gift:

Also will be visible in all North-Central and South America continent.

Total moon eclipse the night of January 20th beginning at 10:36pm and finishing on January 21st at 11:36pm. if you live in Cayman Islands.

I am saying this will be a gift because apparantley it wont happen again until May 26th, 2021!!

So don’t waist any time on Sunday 20th just go outside and observe the sky

First let me share with you a something I have learn about total lunar eclipses

I have to be honest I didn’t know this before.

The total lunar eclipse happens only when is the moon is full and the sun , the earth and the moon are aligned in the same line!

Now remember the moon does not have its own light but shines because its surface reflects the Sun’s rays. During a total lunar eclipse, the Earth comes between the Sun and the Moon and blocks any direct sunlight from reaching the Moon. The Sun casts the Earth’s shadow on the Moon’s surface

This will affects on how we usually see the moon with its bright white color instead it will turn to looks dark, coppery- red. Hence the name of the Blood Moon

Now let me tell you the 2nd gift it will be also a Super Moon!

Why called a Super Moon?

A Super Moon occurs when the Moon is both, full and reaches the point in its orbit where it’s closest to Earth. A Super-moon appears ever-so-slightly larger and brighter than a typical full Moon, though the difference is negligible when viewed with the naked eye. 

I don’t know about you but I think these are 2 beautiful gifts nature is providing to us to appreciate it.

Is there a 3rd gift?

Yeap, according to the farmer’s almanac January’s full moon is the Wolf Full Moon

“The very first full moon of the year is known in many cultures as the Full Wolf Moon, this is a great time for you to plan out clever ways to achieve your goals for the upcoming year. Trust your wolfish instincts when it comes to decisions, but also be tenacious in searching for useful knowledge that will help you realise your masterplan”.

Every full moon me and others “moon followers” talk about is moment to let go, to say good bye at whatever is no longer serving us, to whatever is stoping us to keep evolving, to keep growing, to keep moving.

Honor your emotions, own them. If you feel like cry then cry nothing wrong with it. If you feel like scream will help you to realise ..then do it. If you feel like running with no special direction where to go, then do it.

Avoid repressing feelings. Allow yourself to play, to move, to have fun and to enjoy.

If you are in Grand Cayman please join us to celebrate the first full moon of 2019!

We will meet 5:30pm to practice Chandra Namaskar also called moon salutations follow by a guided meditation
