When I think of June,
I reflect on the energies of Butterfly,
and the powerful transformation they symbolize.
A Full Strawberry Moon arrives on Friday, June 5th.
It is also a Lunar Eclipse, marking the beginning of an
atypical three eclipses during an astrological eclipse season.
A Solar Eclipse adds heat to the normally rising intensities of
peak sunlight light during Summer Solstice on June 20th,
while the Winter Solstice comes about in the Southern hemisphere.
As such, it will be the longest day of light or night,
depending on where you are on Planet Earth.
The day after that, a New Moon reflects new beginnings of a new season.
And then the last Lunar Eclipse arrives on July 4,
Independence Day in the United States, followed by
a Full Buck Moon on July 5th.
Remember that Deer is symbollic of gentle allurment
into new adventures in consciousness.
Everything is changing so rapidly in the Universe today.
It is more important than ever to be gentle, and kind
on ourselves, and with our one human family.
But that can be challenging when examining institutionalized oppression,
like awakening to the reality of white privilege, white supremacy,
and resentments that run deep from those power imbalances.
What is underneath the protests, and rioting going on right now?
The truth is, nobody wins from abuses of power,
not even those on top of the pyramid.
A system that is set up to divide, and conquer winners versus losers
is unjust, and immoral – regardless of what line in the sand you stand.
Notice how the growing cost of these disparities invite more chaos
to level the playing field.
And then watch how chaos fuels increased security controls,
like the militarization of the police as people take to the streets.
But now more than ever, with the virus affecting our planet, and
the down-bound economic train affecting the human plight –
It appears more self-evident to me that the movement of labor pains are
intensifying as an old world dies, and a new one is being born.
We have been discussing this theme for many years now in this blog.
This is analgous to the way many people choose to have another child,
after their first experience with childbirth –
often do so because they often forget how painful giving birth is,
and how much work the labor of love is during the early stages of child rearing.
Some people say that about forgetting the reason we might choose
to incarnate as a soul on the Earth, or make the agreement to become mortal.
The miracle of childbirth is akin to any rebirth,
as well as the birth of a New Earth.
And within the blessing of these miracles,
there are also courses in curses.
Going back to the familiarity of an old world,
and an old paradigm is akin to the better the devil you know mentality.
Back when Lincoln was President, a lot of people didn’t want
to end slavery or deal with the consequences of systemic change.
Same thing with the 60s, when old roles, and ways of doing
things were changing, as is always the case during
cultural wars, like we are in right now.
There are those who say they just want things to go back to normal.
And yet, the normal we all knew was really a nightmare that was
merely the better devil otherwise known as a security blanket in consciousness.
Some people call the Age of Aquarias a great awakening of
our superhuman powers, a new human, or Homo Luminosity.
When we focus on the positive, and look for the silver lining, it doesn’t
mean that we don’t notice the dark, and stormy.
That would be like an ostrich burying its head in the sand,
or a toddler plugging its ears, and making noise to tune out
the unwanted perceptual experience.
What it does mean is that we can focus on our breath or a mantra to
help us be in the present moment, and realize that we can’t control
everything that happens to us.
Instead of paying attention to the 10,000 things that are waiting to
distract us from the truth of who we really are, we are training our selves
to pay purposeful attention to waking up to self-actualization, or our soul purpose.
But, to a much larger degree, we can control how we respond or
react to what comes our way.
Yeah, it does take work to adjust to the changes that accompany
movement from a grub to a caterpillar to a butterfly.
It is unrealistic to spiritually bypass one form over the other.
Before you can fly in the heavens,
you have to learn how to move along on the ground.
May we recognize the butterfly effect of our actions.
What are you building in the shadow areas?
What will they look like if they were to come out into the sunlight?
Through the polorizing rise in nationalism, and globalism, we can relax this
barrier by stepping into a unified field of awareness.
Just imagine the possibilities of sustainable green energy jobs, access to
energetically clean resources, like quality education, health care, meaningful
work for our human family, and all sentient beings.
Many people were very skeptical when the New Deal came about during
The Great Depression era in the United States.
But when the private sector dried up, and people were without jobs, there was no
more hiding behind the veil of band-aids, and skeleton life support systems.
Humanity does have a tendency to be at our best, when we are at our worst.
And humans do have a strong survival instinct, and are socially driven creatures.
We are creatively cognitive creatures craving meaning with deep feelings.
You can try to quell those with a garden variety of distractions.
But at the end of the day, it would be like
trying to convince a grub to not turn into a caterpillar,
or trying to con a caterpillar not to transform into a butterfly.
See you further along the trails,
Please feel free to check out my recent you tube video with my coworker friend Nick Bucci, and featured guest Paul Knoll:
Great content as always Ari and the video interview was inspiring. Also, may favorite phrase above is: “It is more important than ever to be gentle, and kind
on ourselves, and with our one human family.” _/\_
Thank you Uncle Pat!
