Blue Jay commingle with energies of pretending, wearing masks
and true to the self mastership

But Blue Jay doesn’t care which path you choose –
that is between you, Great Spirit, Earth and the Heavens . . .

As part of the Crow family, these spirited birds remind us
of the primal creative element of life

With Mercury coming out of Retrograde,
the fog begins to lift . . .

Rising sunlight torches any shadowy areas with the
heart and fire of compassion!

May the energies of next Sunday’s Wesak Full Moon spring forth clarity and
compassion to purify any dark areas that need to walk into the light

It is good to revisit old aspects of ourselves, so that we can move
forward into a new chapter . . .

As we shift into new dimensions, the Earth evolves into new vibrations . . .

The more of us that become the change we want to see in the world,
the greater reflection of that playing out in our everyday experiences!

May Blue Jay can guide you into co-authoring a new script of a
new you being an agent of change in alignment with a New Earth . . .

See you up the trails,

Frogs Hop In

It has been said that Frog hears thunderclouds,
and call in the rains to give our souls a spring cleaning

And here we are living in times of purification

Giving ourselves permission to grieve and experience sadness
is part of learning how to be an authentic human being

The light may be rising, but the whispering
dark nights of Winter have left their mark

Attachments to our friends, relations, and peers is part of being human

And yet it is good medicine to meditate on
letting go, releasing, and relaxing these attachments

When racing thoughts, and the anxieties of the chattering monkey mind
are weighing you down . . .

Picture a Frog with a mantra to “stop it!”

Remember when we are feeling lost and alone,
we should honor those feelings with gentle examination

At the same time, we can trust that the sunshine and rainbows are on their way

Like the Phoenix Rising, it is always darkest before dawn

Try not to get sucked into the murky quick sand of societal’s swamp

Keep your wits about you, and remember to explore
the playground of your inner tapestry with empathy and curiosity

Even if someone gives you a superficial compliment about the way you look,
just say “thank you.”

Meditation on gratitude is always an attitude adjustment
in allowing your heart to take in the love that you deserve

It’s harder to have an icy heart, when you shine the light of compassion on it

May the arriving Wesak Full Moon in later April
shower the Buddha’s light onto your soul!

New weather patterns are here, and Woodpecker’s drumming synchronizes
with new beginnings associated with next Monday’s New Moon . . .

Spring’s new growth aligns with winds of change
happening today on this classroom known as Earth

Mercury in Retrograde remembers the ghosts of Winter’s passing

Time to revisit old relationships and memories
that have been hibernating underground

They are reminders of our old selves that are
climbing out of the darkness into the sunlight

This is a good time to examine dead wood in order to unearth new growth,
so that we can rise up with the tides as we
move toward the peak energies of Summer Solstice

We all need to find our own unique rhythms
that will help us traverse our budding New World . . .

How do we tune into our own drum beat, and at the same time harmonize
with the heartbeat of those in our outer social drumming circles?

Meditation on Woodpecker can help stimulate clarity and drum up the universal
feminine heartbeat of compassion . . .

Dig into the art of discrimination,
and analyze what you need to transform in your life

Do you need to cultivate new boundaries between your self and others?

Was there a time when your old habits,
and behavioral patterns were an engrained part of your identity?

Are you being given an opportunity to take a look at those myths about yourself,
so that you can let them go, and move into the new self you want to become?

Saturday’s Full Pink Moon symbolizes the early
arrival of flowers and vegetation during Spring

It has been said that the violence is waking us up . . .

Here we are making the transition from the death of Winter
into the birth of Spring . . .

Love overcomes fear of loss, abandonment, and attachments

During these times of purification, may we power our
April’s cleansing showers with a sunshine and rainbow mantra
of giving peace a chance on the inside and out!

Some say that the truth hurts.
And sometimes, hearing truth stinks like mulch . . .

But we can be gentle in how we speak our truths.
Let us become gentle on ourselves when we hear it from spirit!

Given all the talk about fake news out there today,
now is an opportune time to walk home with Chickadee

When their tweets speak to us, they are helping us connect
and rise up to hearing the singing voices of our Higher Selves

Mercury in Retrograde resurrects revisited experiences with old selves,
past lives, and relationships from yesteryear . . .

Yeah, old habits may die-hard.

But you don’t have to be salty or sugar coat truth
when speaking from a place of personal authority!

In that light, it can’t hurt to invest in loss by heeding the spiritual wisdom to
diminish our collective dietary intake of sugar and salt . . .

After all, we are what we eat, and our bodies are
portals to consciousness explored!

Till next time up the trails,

Ari

The trickery of Fox trots into the trails,
while the wind blows in Mercury’s airs of Retrograde

A Full Pink Moon awakens early Spring Flowers,
as April Fool’s Day takes us out to the ballgame,
and sports our collective parks . . .

Light has crossed over the hump, and is more ready to take action
since the Spring Equinox already fades into the backdrop,
and the femininity of yin invests in loss . . .

The Bernie Sanders politician was an early arrival into
a new Aquarian Age kind of statesmanship
Back when flower power was merely a fringe movement . . .

But the will of the people are speaking up now more than ever!

The Bern’s a metaphor for progressive leaders becoming the new normal as
we shift forward into an increasingly multi-polar world –
where everyone is welcome, and we all have something to contribute!

Yet we have more positional predatory chickenhawks
than ever with Trump and company

Become inspired by our youth for standing up to the tyranny of
deep corporate proliferation of guns and nuclear weapons

Meditation on Fox is an energetic act of civil disobedience . . .

You can learn to cover your tracks, while walking invisibly among others
out in the open by becoming an agitator and distraction to established bullying behavior patterns

The liberty of the Stock Exchange and the Military-Industrial Complex
are destined to level, like turkey’s diminishing impact on squirrel’s stockpiles

But the same systems that oppress can liberate
Human beings have a strong survival instinct

We just have a lot of crap that we have to release
so that we can lick our wounds so they can heal

All of us can stand to work to soften our edges and expand our boarders
in ways that harmonize with our environment in the spirit of win-win politics

Our hybrid creature status can remember that
we are connected to all Earth’s creatures!

At the same time, our hybrid divine nature can
remember we are pre-wired for spirituality

Will “our friends in Congress” have a miraculous change in hearts and minds?
Will extraterrestrials beings help awaken a transformation
in our multidimensional awareness?

Times are changing . . .

Now more than ever, we need to welcome our powers of mutability for adaptability

Let the energy of Fox help you sniff out the
scent of discrimination and discernment in relationship
with cunning silent observation

See you up the trails,

Herring soars into soulful skies again –
echoing Sea Gull sounds of symbolic subtleties in communication . . .

A Pisces New Moon breathes in
incoming energies of Mercury in Retrograde, and Spring Equinox

In a few days, light/dark/masculine/feminine/yin/yang energies
will be together again in natural equality . . .

Yet it also feels like an endless
Winter replay during this seasonal transition

Hard to believe spring fever will be in the air again,
whilst fragrant flowers are blossoming as we speak . . .

Old networks of friendships and other relationships are coming back to visit

Part of mindfulness is noticing body language,
and other non-verbal ways of communicating with each other

Inner peace and happiness are not without remembering
the depth of deep soul wounds that bring back hurt feelings

Forgiveness starts with your own healing . . .
It doesn’t have anything to do with someone else really

But anger is a natural emotion offering
opportunities for deeper examination

When you choose to not take the happenings around us personally,
you end up feeling more empowered and less swayed by the ways of the world

Beneath life’s herrings, Nature reveals to us opposites are everywhere . . .

Sometimes, silence is a higher spiritual form of communication
But paradoxically, so is speaking your truth, and standing up for what is right

Meditation on opening our mouths to releasing spirit,
while closing our mouths to holding spirit in . . .

This is a conversational exchange between order and chaos!

Whale brings good tidings that we have come
to this planet to fulfill our soul’s purpose

People who are mathematically attentive
celebrate “pie day” on March 14th

I see this math symbol as a sign of infinity
and a spiritual birthday gift that keeps on giving

With a new moon coming, and a New Age on its way
we are in the letting go process of an old mechanistic world order

It’s hard not to get seduced into “turning the blinders on” from your
deeper and higher values . . .

But with daylight savings time, the light is rising
while darkness is waning

And then somewhere during that process, you might find yourself
becoming a robot, hitting the mute button,
and parroting a “business as usual” price tag of selling your soul

But the time is now to “get up, stand up”
speak your truth, and “fight for your right.”

Time to man up, dawg!

But with Whale as your spirit guide, you can always come back
to empathy, and swim in the wake of a new sea of consciousness
to the heartbeat of universal energetic equality

Spring Equinox is a good natural reminder of that
A time when masculine and feminine energies will be in equal alignment again

And from that point, the light will be rising till it peaks
on the Summer Solstice in June

Moving into the New Aquarian Age waters means that we should
focus on swimming in pods of like-minded coming attractions

Focusing on those that hide in the dark of an old dog eat dog
herd mentality are not worth you giving your power away to

Those attached to ways of the hellish nightmare
are just going to pull you down, rather than look for a leg up

Your primary focus and responsibility is to take charge of your own
spiritual development as an expanding soul having a human experience

Like the transition between Winter to Spring,
we are in transitional tides that are ebbing and flowing
between ages, and the sands of time

May we swim in these changing tides together
into the new seas of this school called Earth

Till we meet again up the trail,

Ari
