Toad hops along the trails . . .

Their energies remind us to use what resources are available

Trust the signs and synchronicities to show you where to look

Last week’s Full Sturgeon Moon wanes in concert with sunlight

Paradoxically, Fall Eclipse Season is blowing in the wind

Picture Toad to relax any fears you might have about
the times that are changing before your eyes

At the end of the day, there is security in the knowledge
that the only constant is change

There is no need to push the river or hang on to the shores

Toad is good medicine for conflict resolution
It is possible to confront your fears without being too confrontational

Sometimes, you just have to lay your cards on the table and
let the chips fall where they may

Autumn Equinox is not far off on the horizon in the Northern Hemisphere

In later September, Light and Dark energies become equally aligned

Right Tao, we are preparing for moving Yinward

Pretty soon, feminine energies will gain momentum and then
climax on the Winter Solstice after a long December

See you along the trails,

Ari

Mountain Lion hides in caverns, cracks and crevices
Their energies reflect silent leadership and strong feminine power

Yin is rising toward Autumn’s ascension

Feminine power is strongest when cultivated gradually
through a gentle and soft approach

A Full Sturgeon Moon floats
into our stream of consciousness on August 18th

Humans have been programmed to be afraid of the dark
Which is why it is tempting keep the blinders on and go back to sleep

But the light of consciousness wants to shine on
what we were once blinded by

That could be learning something new about yourself or someone you know
Perhaps that new information does not sit well with your preconceived notions

In that light, maybe the shades of your worldview has been forced to lift

But Nature reflects storms brewing that require us to pay attention
to the subtleties of the changing seasons

Cats remind us of the magic, mystery and synchronicity
that lurk behind shadows and dark areas

What self-evident truths want to leap out into the waning sunlight?

The Autumn Equinox is coming soon in later September
Between Tao and Zen we will experience an astrological eclipse season

At that time, light and dark energies will be fleetingly equal again
Masculine and feminine energies will be in alignment with one another

What winds of change are brewing in the air up there?

When I think of how maddening it is to hold onto the shores,
I remember the wisdom of letting go and letting God

Because what we resist will persist

It does feel less crazy to float with the current
and trust the process without throwing caution to the wind

Beavers are industrious creatures . . .
Building and being productive is what they do

Their medicine is a friendly reminder that
dreams arrive if you consciously sculpt them into this reality

A Full Sturgeon Moon is rapidly approaching upstream
While an Astrological Fall Season is blowing in the winds of change ahead

Autumn season sits on the horizon in the Northern hemisphere
While Summer’s light gradually wanes

Do you take issue with that forthcoming situation or do you rejoice about a new season?

Leave it to Beaver to show you how to produce a new film your life –
Especially if you don’t feel a sense of purpose anymore

It will take some work on your part
But seasonal energies can help energize your way

Otherwise, it’s just the same old Groundhog Day movie
that repeatedly plays out in your life’s script

Beavers are action-oriented team players that embody mutual-aid group work
Meditation on their knowledges reveals alternative ways of travel

There is a sense of harmony and spacial respect in their eco-development
This is the wave of the future for a more fair playing field

Leave it to Beaver to inspire a work ethic and harmonic convergence of labor

See you further on down the trails,

Feminine energy slowly spins it’s web with Spider rising
Isn’t it tricky not to get tangled up in shady dark edges?

Symbolic of Grandmother Moon, may we be inspired by Spider
to weave new program designs into our dying old paradigm . . .

This reflects correspondence with a forthcoming New Moon
Time for new solutions and novel ways of looking at beginnings

Walking in balance within the center of a circle . . .
Awakens a paradoxical spiritual and practical challenge and opportunity

Like the tracks left in Buddha’s wake . . .
There is a Middle Way!

A Middle Way, in the current American general election looks like
a write-in vote , voting for a third-party candidate, or not at all

Instead of following the commercial that tells you to vote
for the opposite sides of the same coin based on fear-based incentives

Buying into the lesser of two evils only strengthens
the grip that Big Money and the Military Industrial Complex
has on your mind-set

Remember that you have a choice to stay on the path without getting too swayed
by the seductive pull of life’s tension of opposites

See how polarity consciousness plays out by pushing you to
think, feel and behave in a way that
echoes the dominant voices that the corporate media wants you to buy into

Try not to chase your thoughts and react emotionally to those thoughts
in a extroverted trigger happy way with others . . .

What would it be like for you to stand in the empathic shoes
of your so-called competition or adversary?

We nurture creativity by paradoxically staying grounded in Infinity
Dream weaving into the material reality should not be
without entertaining unintended consequences . . .

If you are wearing a predatory mask,
isn’t it obvious that you might not have the stomach
for empathizing with your victims?

Just chew on that for a moment . . .
Isn’t that a mouthful?

See you further on up the trails,

Ari
