Womxn's Moon Medicine

Womxn’s Moon Medicine evenings with Evolutionary Astrologer, Jessa Walters, are opportunities to learn more about a particular astrological energy, experiment with the embodiment of that energy in your own body and share in community with open-minded, soulful womxn committed to growth and self-understanding.

Womxn’s Moon Medicine: Moon in Aries, Element of Fire

Saturday, December 15, 2018 at Yess Yoga | 7-9 pm | $35

 

As the first sign of the zodiac, Aries represents the raw, primal fire of life force energy. With Aries as our teacher, we learn that we have the right to stand up for our own wants and needs. Autonomy, boundaries, assertiveness, the heat of our own passions and desires: this is the path of Aries. Building courage is the evolutionary aim. By facing our fears, taking risks, adventuring beyond the edges of our comfort zones, we embody high Aries energy and feel the fire of strength and courage intensifying in our bones.

To embody this Aries Moon energy, we will experiment with freestyle movement to music to awaken and explore our own instinctual, primal natures. There will also be drums/sound makers to engage with during the movement if you wish. Please wear comfortable clothing in which you can move easily. After the embodiment, we will circle for a time of ritual and sharing.

A few days before the event, Jessa will send an email to all who have registered with more info. Registration coming soon here!

Womxn’s Moon Medicine: Moon in Libra, Element of Air

SUNDAY, October 7, 2018 at Yess Yoga | 7-9 pm | $35

 

In this month’s Moon Medicine for Womxn, we gather just before the New Moon in Libra to explore the body, mind and heart aspects of Libra’s Great Work: The Art of Relationship. In this Libran realm, we discover the evolutionary need to surrender to carefully chosen others, to recognize the other as mirror and to cultivate a sense of harmony and peace within ourselves and with others. We will explore the embodiment of this Libran energy through gentle movement to music followed by deep relaxation practice. Later in the evening, we further our embodiment of high potential Libra by allowing ourselves to consciously become mirrors for each other. We experience this “mirroring” through a group sharing practice called “sacred containment.”

Womxn’s Moon Medicine: Moon in Pisces, Element of Water

SUNDAY, August 26, 2018 at Yess Yoga | 7-9 pm | $35

 

Under this Full Moon in Pisces, immerse in the vast, oceanic waters of deep, multi-dimensional healing within a group. As the fullness of moonlight shines down upon us, Pisces energy invites us to open as channels, to allow the higher frequencies of oneness, unconditional love and compassion to flow in and through our whole beings. During our evening together, we explore Pisces Moon energy through a healing touch ritual. Each womxn will have the chance to completely surrender and be held/supported by the womxn in her group through energetic or physical touch. Before the ritual, Jessa will give a short astrological talk on the Pisces Moon and other current astrological aspects, and we will close the evening with the opportunity to briefly share in the larger group. Please wear comfortable clothing that allows you to feel at ease in your body.

Womxn’s Moon Medicine: Moon in Scorpio, Element of Water

Saturday, July 21, 2018 at Yess Yoga | 7-9 pm | $35

 

Scorpio invites us to engage with depth, intensity and honesty with ourselves and each other. Scorpio seeks to venture courageously into the Shadow, the Underworld, to unearth what has been hidden or repressed and bring it into the light of awareness to be understood, transformed and integrated. A willingness to do this deep inner and interpersonal work is at the core of reclaiming personal power and wholeness. Through radical transparency and the capacity to be with what makes us uncomfortable, we become brighter human beings with more capacity to catalyze transformation in our own hearts, in our relationships and our wider communities.

Our evening together is an opportunity to experience a felt sense of the high potential of Scorpio through a Soul-Seeing Ritual, a conscious Journey into the Underworld through authentic movement to music followed by Re-Emergence into Scorpionic gift-giving within the circle. Please come with something to share with the group which captures a deep, empowering truth that might be raw, edgy and uncomfortable, perhaps dealing with a taboo subject (fear, sexuality, death, injustice, oppression, aging, rage, etc) – all in the service of naming what has been hidden and reclaiming power and awareness around it.

Womxn’s Moon Medicine: Moon in Leo, Element of Fire

Saturday, June 16, 2018 at Yess Yoga | 7-9 pm | $35

 

Under this Lioness Moon, we gather together as womxn and explore the warm, spontaneous, joyful, creative, life-giving Leo energy in our bodies, minds and hearts. We explore embodiment through free-form movement to music, with intentionally chosen songs and facilitation by Jessa, intended to connect us with our innate Leonine strength, our child-like ability to spontaneously self-express and the pure lightness of heart that can come from simply being in our bodies, moving freely.

Leo Moon Medicine supports each of us in building courage through risking the vulnerability it takes to come forward in the presence of others with our true selves and our creative expressions. The other half of the equation is then to each receive the healing attention, affirmation and praise from others in response to our individual sharing. This loop of risking self-expression and receiving healing affirmation is what Leo medicine is all about.

So, after the movement, we will gather in circle, and each of us will have the opportunity to share from our hearts. After each womxn shares, we will go around the circle and each womxn in the group will then offer a word or sentence of warm, positive reflection back to the womxn who shared. This is a powerful practice of showing up in our authenticity and receiving healing praise and warmth from others.

Womxn’s Moon Medicine: Moon in Capricorn, Element of Earth

Saturday, May 5, 2018 at Yess Yoga | 7-9 pm | $35

 

On this Capricorn Moon night, we gather together as womxn to consciously tap into the earthy, feminine wisdom of our yin. Capricorn is a yin sign, and in its high expression is an embodiment of the grounded, Wise Elder, offering to the world a life of integrity and wisdom gained from the integration of life experience.
On this evening, we dedicate significant time and space to integrate and regenerate in the life-giving, sustaining, wisdom energy of our wombs (this energy is still fully present even when the physical uterus is not). Jessa will guide a deep relaxation practice, centered upon body awareness and womb breath, followed by a visualization of communion with our inner Wise Elder(s). Time for journaling/mandala-making will follow. We will close our evening with an opportunity to reflect and share.

Womxn’s Moon Medicine: Moon in Sagittarius, Element of Fire

Saturday, February 10, 2018 at Yess Yoga | 7-9 pm | $35

 

Life is a daring adventure or nothing (Helen Keller) – the essence of Sagittarius. She who engages with Life as an unquenchable Quest, seeking new and diverse experience, endless expansion of her consciousness and an ever-deepening understanding of what brings her meaning and truth. Let us gather together as womxn on this Sagittarian Moon night and cultivate the fiery expansion of our energy through dance (organic movement to music) and then sit together in sacred circle and each share our unique philosophies based on our own varied life experience: what we believe to be true and what brings us meaning in this life. Through our open-minded, openhearted sharing and respectful, wholehearted listening, we weave together a rich, colorful tapestry of inspiration…soul food for the journey.

Womxn’s Moon Medicine: Moon in Virgo, Element of Earth

Saturday, January 6, 2018 at Yess Yoga | 7-9 pm | $35

 

Virgo has long been associated with the archetype of the Virgin. In this evening’s Moon Medicine, we explore the original, pre-patriarchal meaning of Virgin: A womxn WHOLE UNTO HERSELF. A womxn who is free in body, mind and spirit, possessed by nothing, belonging fully to herself. A High Priestess, devoted to her sacred, earthy work, a path of meaningful service and joy through which she can continue to grow and evolve. The goal is wholeness, rather than perfection.

We explore the embodiment of this rich Virgo energy through organic movement to music, particularly honoring the music of womxn artists who have stayed true to themselves in their self-expression. We close our evening with a ritual where we each have the opportunity to step forward and make a statement of our wholeness, witnessed and honored by all the womxn in the circle.

Womxn’s Moon Medicine: Moon in Taurus, Element of Earth

Saturday, November 4, 2017 at Yess Yoga | 7-9 pm | $35

 

The essence of Taurus energy is sensual, natural and embodied. Taurus supports us in slowing down to get in deeper touch with our inner-animal, our gut instincts, our flesh and bones. Taurus is at home in nature and values simplicity, earthiness and beauty. Our evening together will include Gentle Yoga, guided self-massage and a ritual to invoke this Taurean energy, which will include touch/massage from others in the group. Please bring an item to place on the altar; something that expresses the all-natural, beauty-loving, earthy energy of Taurus. You can take whatever you bring back home with you.

Womxn’s Moon Medicine: Moon in Gemini, Element of Air

Saturday, October 8, 2017 at Yess Yoga | 7-9 pm | $35

The essence of high Gemini energy is a radically open, curious mind; the hunger for new information and experience; and the desire to tell about it – to communicate. Gemini has a deep affinity with language.

Gemini resonates with the element of Air and is sensitive to vibration. In this Moon Medicine, Jessa will give a short talk on Gemini and the current phase of the moon. We will experiment with the embodiment of Gemini energy through mantra (chanting) set to music. Exploring the vibrations through stillness, organic movement, our own voices and/or playing instruments (shakers, rattles and drums). The energy and intention of this mantra set to music is very Geminian: to cultivate lightness of heart and youthful energy. We will close our evening sharing with each other about our experience.

Womxn’s Moon Medicine: Moon in Cancer, Element of Water

Saturday, July 22, 2017 at Yess Yoga | 7-9 pm | $35

The essence of Cancerian energy is sensitivity, self-care and healing. The waters She rules are deep. Come and steep in the refuge of the Great Mother within, who knows exactly what is needed to nurture and soothe your heart. Our evening together will include Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra, a healing touch ritual and time for reflection. Please bring your yoga mat, a water bottle and a journal (paper will be available if you don’t bring a journal). Wear comfortable clothing in which you feel relaxed and at ease.

Womxn’s Moon Medicine: Moon in Libra, Element of Air

Saturday, May 6, 2017 at Yess Yoga | 7-9 pm | $35


In this month’s Moon Medicine for Womxn, we gather under the light of the Libran moon and explore the body, mind and heart aspects of Libra’s Great Work of cultivating balance and peace. The sacred art of calming down. The beauty, relief and surrender of the exhale. We embody this Libran release of tension and stress through pranayama (breathing techniques), visualization and restorative yoga practice. Later in the evening, we further our embodiment of high potential Libran energy by allowing ourselves to be truly impacted by other souls, becoming mirrors for each other. We experience this “mirroring” through a particular group/partnered sharing practice.

Womxn’s Moon Medicine: Moon in Pisces, Element of Water

Sun, Feb 26, 2017 at Yess Yoga | 7-9 pm | $35

Piscean energy is embodied as the archetypes of the Mystic, the Seer, the Artist, the Dreamer. The high ground expression of Pisces is higher consciousness itself. Non-dual, unity consciousness. In the words of Don Juan Matus (quoted by Carlos Castaneda), We are luminous beings. We are perceivers. We are an awareness; we are not objects; we have no solidity. We are boundless. You are invited to bask in the vast, oceanic space of this evening’s Pisces Moon, and connect with your own sense of the Infinite. Our evening together will include communion with the Great Silence (meditation), surrender into the higher consciousness of oneness and compassion (restorative yoga within a container of metta/lovingkindness) and absorption into creative process (mandala creation). Please wear comfortable clothing in which you feel relaxed and at ease.

Womxn’s Moon Medicine: Moon in Aquarius, Element of Air

Saturday, Dec 3, 2016 at Yess Yoga | 7-9 pm | $35


Embrace the free-thinking, independent, outside-of-the-box energy that this Aquarian moon offers us. Our evening together supports radical, uncensored reflection through free-association writing and sharing, allowing space to question our deepest assumptions around relationship, pleasure and body image, all in the service of living in greater alignment with our individual, authentic values and desires. We ground in our bodies through an organic movement practice and turn to our ROOT for support and insight through a guided pelvic bowl meditation. Come ready to delve into your own unique wisdom and shake up the status quo! Please dress comfortably, bring your yoga mat and journal/notebook.
