Moon Horoscope of the Day:
Moon is in Aries: “An increase of activity, impetuosity, striving, and energetic action. This Moon favours occupations which demand courage, decisiveness, swiftness and initiative, but anything which requires patience, diligence and diplomacy is likely to decline now. It is a good time for athletics, and for solving problems by ‘brainstorming’. Dental visits are not recommended on the Aries Moon.” -(http://www.lunarium.co.uk/)
Today I woke up to Pink Skies and earlier than I was expecting to be up. There have been a few times in the last 5-6 months that I woke up to literally just see the pink skies outside and then go back to sleep. Spirit sure knows how much I looove pink skies. Today was different, I wanted to stay awake and write a moon love letter before my ceremonial trip to Mexico.
I immediately heard the bees humming away like the graceful and hardworking queens and kings that they are! I was instantaneously transported into a different realm. The sound of bees have a high frequency and vibration according to my tantric studies. I remembered a meditation ritual that I learned in my Level 2 Tantra Yoga Teacher training and immediately went to Tantra town! This is an imaginary town I made up in my head where everyone who lives and visits this town practices Tantra so the energy is inevitably contagious and inspiring!
The meditation ritual is a highly advanced technique that can than only be shared amongst teachers. What’s so synchronistic about this meditation is that you need to use the pinkies on both hands, which reminds me of the spelling “pink skies” and you mimic the sound of bees. I love when nature and Tantra has a way of guiding me so gracefully, beautifully, and ecstatically.
Here’s a picture of my pink skies with Mama Julietta overlayed … I’lll explain later who she is.
Before doing the tantric ritual, I cleared and balanced the teacher aspect of my mind by doing the most powerful clearing meditation in Kundalini Yoga called Sodarshan Kriya. “According to the tantra shastras, it can purify your past karma and the subconscious impulses that may block you from fulfilling you. It balances all the 27 facets of life and mental projection, and gives you the pranic power of health and healing. It establishes inner happiness and a state of flow and ecstasy in life. This meditation balances the Teacher aspect of the mind.” (http://www.3ho.org/files/pdfs/SodarshanChakraKriya.pdf)
This kriya has become such an important catalyst in my life ever since I’ve been practicing it. What I love the most about this kriya is the timing of it too. I magically started doing it when Venus went retrograde and didn’t even know it. When Venus is in retrograde, the ability to know our truth around beauty, love, art and anything Venus like related becomes unclear, blocked, and challenged. This is not the time to invest in a new relationship, get back with an ex, or end a relationship. It’s time to first and foremost, explore the darkness of our self love, or what keeps us from loving ourselves fully and then to explore the same in our most intimate relationships.
In the darkness lives everything that doesn’t allow you to fully experience your light, gifts and unique offering to the world that is so needed. In “retrograde” we can somehow find how strongly we feel about certain aspects of our relationships even though our truth may be off, you can still at the very least FEEL the emotions that come up as result of being in conflict and challenged by your perspective in any relationship. This could be a good time to practice boundaries with yourself and reassessing them on September 5th when Venus goes directs. You can learn about healthy and ecstatic boundaries at the next and last Sensual Surrender Playshop of the year on Sunday, August 30th in LA.
To help me through this Venus Retrograde time, I’ve committed to a powerful clearing kriya and also clearing physical items that I no longer need. In addition to that I am going on a 28 day celibate journey, two days after the Full Moon. My exception is that I can still stimulate and arouse myself in ecstatic pleasure with my own hands.
During this retrograde time, allow yourself to feel into your darkest emotions and clear those suckers out of the way by simply feeling the emotion, letting go of it by not taking it personally, and breathing ecstatically as you do.
We have the ability to practice deep discernment and establish boundaries by feeling into our dark emotions this time in Venus Retrograde.
I am leaving for an ingenious ceremony held in Oaxaca, Mexico in the magical Sierra Madres! This Friday morning, I’m taking off to Mexico City where I’ll meet a group of international seekers to be a part of a ceremony hosted by Mama Julieta Casimiro, a member of the International Council of 13 indigenous grandmothers. Your blessings are so appreciated and loved! <3!
It is an honor, a privilege and pleasure to be a part of this ceremony. I think it’s important to connect with our indigenous roots to learn more about where we come from. Most importantly to be more grounded in who we are so we can stand tall and reach as high as possible like a redwood tree. We need big roots and a strong foundation to touch the sky safely, harmoniously, and symbiotically. (Think of a pyramid) Im so looking forward to coming back to share this magic with you and the ladies who are participating in the next Sensual Surrender Playshop and the knights showing for the Dakini Domme Knight Masquerade. These events only happen twice a year! Read below for more info!
There are 3 spots left for the ecstatic, transformational boutique style Sensual Surrender Playshop of the year. This event followed by the Dakini Domme Knight Masquerade Puja is going down on Sunday, August 30th in Topanga Canyon, 2 weeks after my journey to the Magical Sierra Madres! I get so amazed by the woman who show up for this tantric calling! The first playshop I had a woman travel from Ashland, Oregon, and the most recent playshop I had a love angel travel from NYC. This time around an adorable goddess from Canada and a mermaid goddess form Maui will be flying in for this unique, tantric and paradigm shifting event.

Music Video Update:
As of today, we have restored all the music video files. For the last 10 days, we have been restoring the files including some of the renders which means video edits because the drive crashed. It’s an unfortunate experience and yet I am so grateful that we were able to recover all the files. Today after this moon love letter gets released we will begin the assessment of video. This project has been teaching me so much about patience, trust, and surrendering.
So far I have raised $3,000 total for the music video, $,2000 on GoFundMe.com/ixchel and $1,000 from a personal donation. We are close to reaching our goal and can’t thank you enough to those who have shared the campaign, financially supported it and were a part of the the music video!
If you would like to make a donation or share campaign go to www.GoFundMe.com/ixchel
Please share this moon love letter to anyone you feel would benefit from participating in Sensual Surrender Playshop and or will be inspired by this moon love letter!
Thank you so much & Ecstatic Blessings your way!
