moon tide

It’s cool to think about the things that exist outside of our solar system, but sometimes its even cooler to sit back and think about all the things that ours has to offer. 

(like how just the Sun, the Earth’s rotation and the moon can make views like these!!)  

Space day is coming I promise! School sucks and likes to take away all of my free time :) 

To all the people whose gender changes:

If you’re genderflux, genderfluid, or any other identity (or no label at all)- if you’re gender feelings/identity change over time, this is for you. 

The sun rises and falls. 

The moon has phases.

The tide comes and goes.

Seasons turn.

The only thing that does not change is change itself.

Do not let anyone convince you that you are unnatural. 

You are as the universe is. 

Don't forget about YOUR power

You don’t always have to rely upon the powers of herbs and crystals and metals.

You don’t always have to rely on the moon phases or the tides or planetary alignments.

You don’t always have to harness the natural powers of the world around you.

You have your own power within you; strong and great and subtle. Use it.

Mastering yoga takes time….In the beginning I wanted too much too soon…I ended up hurting myself. You need to let your body tell you when.. Let your body guide you.  Hard work and discipline really pay off. Yoga is also about meditation. Reflecting about your life, your growth.  Its about self forgiveness and loving yourself.

I’m a woman who runs with the wolves..They represent so much of how I feel, Of what I want in life. Duality…Following your heart, gut and female intuition. Soft, wholesome girl and the wild passionate women inside..Play and love. Instinct and challenge. Home and adventure. First, I want to be able to not only live, but thrive, on my own and with someone. Being alone has a way of guiding you to those creaky, cobwebby, eggshelly places in our being. To Be in it, truly without attachment or dependency. Sharing my life with someone..being loved and love in return..also let me evolve and grow into a stronger person.  I am so thankful for the special souls in my world who have been here with me, walked this path, together, with love and respect, with complete allowance and acceptance. I am equally grateful for the lessons learnt through great heart ache and pain. Lessons I learned from immense love and passion.  This is what I know: in this life, a steady love, and a place to call home, are far more precious than any earthly possessions or wealth in this world. I will use what I have for growth, change for others and myself. My grandparents gave me that gift and I will pay it forward! I’ve been loved and left  heartbroken, alone and together…May this next chapter be one of wild love, adventure, and most of all ..home. 

The water signs, Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces
are the liquid nutrients of heaven that run through us all. They dwell
in the bodies of water - that is the collective ocean, the swell of emotions that reflect the moon and changing tides, swimming beneath in the unconscious,
bringing to light the power that resides deep within.
Water is the creative essence, the mineral that fecundates all life and art, the swell of the internal world with the paintbox of intuition, colours from the mind of God, and
sunshine from direct access to the music of the soul
—  Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces

The moon has always been
the ocean’s most jealous lover.
But every time he has tried
to fully control her tides,
she has turned into
a terrible tempest
and broken through his chains
with such fury,
only allowing him
the illusion of control
on her smallest, weakest tides.


Woman, you are the ocean.
And no one, not even the moon itself
is allowed to control
your glorious, beautiful tides.

—  A Lesson from the Moon and the Ocean | Nikita Gill
Living by the Moon

The Moon.

Even if you don’t believe in astrology, you cannot deny the powerful effect the Moon has;
upon our tides, upon nature and upon the Human mind.
For She lights up the night, so we in the dark may see.

As of my writing this, a New Moon has just occurred in the sign of the scales, Libra ♎︎
A New Moon marks the beginning of the lunar month, a cycle that lasts for between 29 and 30 days.

In my experience it is very beneficial to live by the rhythm of the Moon. This way we can work on our creating our future, the way we would like it to be, one month at a time. But how?

NEW MOON/ SET AN INTENTION:

Whilst the moon is lightless, crossing in front of the sun, set your goal, what do you want to have achieved in 30 days time?

Perhaps set one big goal, and several smaller ones, which may or may not be directly supporting the larger goal - just ensure you avoid spreading yourself too thin. The New Moon is the perfect time to decide to try something new for a month.

WAXING MOON/ WORK:

Now one day at a time, with your goals in mind, work towards making them a reality. Avoid expecting too much at once, and take each day as it comes!


FULL MOON/ CELEBRATION:

As this is the brightest the moon is during her cycle it is possible that one’s intentions can manifest at this time of the month, but in any case it is a point to recognise how far you have come over the last two weeks - if you have been working steadily towards your targets you will definitely notice your improvements since you began. This may also be the time in which you realise your vision, and see the potential final form your project might take! It’s a time to celebrate!

WANING MOON/ MANAGING:

As the Moon’s light begins to turn away from the earth, one’s focus shifts from building up towards the goal to maintaining the infrastructure they have already implemented. This is the time to make tweaks and ensure that the details are indeed all in place and as they should be; perform any trimming and pruning as you see fit to ensure your project’s longevity.

BLACK MOON/ CLEANSING:

Once the waning crescent disappears from the night sky, vanishing into the rays of dawn, we reach the end of our cycle. At this time we must review the past month, how did we perform, what was successful, where could we have improved?
Through this process of review we can identify what held us back, and make the conscious decision to let it go, to banish it from us, so that we may enter the next cycle without baggage and doubt; cleansed and ready to take on the next month!

You may find it particularly beneficial to choose a project that is associated with the the sign of the New Moon, this month is ♎︎ Libra so subjects related to art, law, relationships and balance will naturally take focus in some way for the month. The next Full Moon will be in ♉︎ Taurus which is associated with ART, BEAUTY & NATURE ~ it really is the perfect time for Deviants to try out experimenting with a new medium, technique or subject for the month and really make use of the chance to kickstart some growth in your art form!

All the best & enjoy working by the Moon’s Light.

i am so mentally exhausted i am convinced my soul knows no sleep. era after era, lifetime after lifetime, i have been awake and as i lay down, the sun sets and the moon controls the tides but still, i do not close my eyes. i am awake and i am tired.
—  but i am alive and that is enough.
