Moon Medicine for Women
Women’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 women committed to growth and self-understanding.
Women’s Moon Medicine: Moon in Leo, Element of Fire
Saturday, June 16th at Yess Yoga | 7-9 pm | $35
Under this Lioness Moon, we gather together as women 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 woman shares, we will go around the circle and each woman in the group will then offer a word or sentence of warm, positive reflection back to the woman who shared. This is a powerful practice of showing up in our authenticity and receiving healing praise and warmth from others.
Women’s Moon Medicine: Moon in Capricorn, Element of Earth
Saturday, May 5th at Yess Yoga | 7-9 pm | $35
Women’s Moon Medicine: Moon in Aries, Element of Fire
Saturday, April 14th 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 reflection and sharing.
Women’s Moon Medicine: Moon in Sagittarius, Element of Fire
Saturday, February 10th at Yess Yoga | 7-9 pm | $35
Women’s Moon Medicine: Moon in Virgo, Element of Earth
Saturday, January 6th 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 woman WHOLE UNTO HERSELF. A woman 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 women 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 women in the circle.
Women’s Moon Medicine: Moon in Taurus, Element of Earth
Saturday, November 4th 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.
