Firing Up the Chinese New Year with Monkey

Florida April 2009 021 copyA Chinese New Year of the Monkey arrives this week
Synchronizing with a New Moon in Aquarius on Monday

Monkey fires up smart and powerful images in Chinese culture especially –
Reflecting qualities of ambition, adventure and irritability by our close relatives

Like Aquarius, Monkeys are eclectic with strong intellects
There is a sense of doing their own thing
But they also have an intense desire to connect with others
in socially conscious ways

Monkey dreams symbolize a soulful need to feel connected in community
It’s hard to feel alienated and isolated when we feel a sense of belonging

Monkey’s energy embodies mischievousness, cleverness and curiosity
By George, they can come across as merry naughty pranksters

When exhibiting monkey-like wit, intelligence and magnetism . . .
Be mindful of how your humor might repel others and might cause hurt feelings

And when you’ve been tricked by a monkey . . .
Try not to take life too seriously
“it’s only life after all”

Humor has a way of getting into our bones so that
we can look at things differently through a lighter lens

We can all stand to learn from Monkey’s eccentric nature by loosening our firm grip
by allowing playfulness and entertainment to stimulate our souls

True, our more serious of minds tend to get put off
by their sly and restless orientation

Creative solutions require ingenuity and resourcefulness

Just imagine how much good could be done with all the political money that
is wasted on commercialism, self-promotion
and advertising in American politics

Isn’t it interesting to see how the militaristic Empire shoots down Bernie Sanders
for flying into an Aquarian “we” consciousness zone?

Sanders is not new to the political football field
He just calls for a new offensive scheme that is in alignment with
a new way of doing business through win-win play calling

The time is Tao to throw away the old business as usual
conservative play calling that sells an evil is as evil does feigned choice

We do not have to buy into the commercial that says that
Power to the people can’t win

Instead of pounding our chests to patriotic God Bless American anthems
We swing to the soulful tunes of God Bless Mother Earth

Movement toward economic equality and leveling impulses
are perceived by some as a threat to our system

This land was made for Aquarian unity!

Humans, like monkeys do have a natural way of
compassion, understanding and bonding

When Nature is cultivated and supported, its jungles grow organically
And we all blossom from that kind of gardening!

See you up the trails,

Ari
