A Full Sturgeon Moon already passed us by, and it’s back to school,
back to business is in the air . . .

But summer hasn’t ended yet,
till Autumn begins in less than a month on September 22

The eclipse season might be over,
but its aftershocks are still alive . . .

Changes in ages are like changes in seasons

Everything is ephemeral and transitory
But all life is energetic and sacred nonetheless

Have you noticed the squirrels, and chipmunks scurrying about,
and foraging like mad in their preparation for winter stockpiles?

It must run in the family, because groundhogs are gorging before
they go to sleep when consistently colder temperatures arrive

Perhaps I’m making erroneous assumptions, but in their industry,
they don’t seem preoccupied with the impending dark and stormy days ahead

Are you someone who looks forward to the crisp air,
dimming light, and colorful foliage?

Or do you dread saying good-bye to summer because fall
reminds you that winter is too close for comfort?

Like the weather, these emotional realities are fleeting,
and opposite sides of the same coin.

Might as well allow yourself to have these experiences,
observe them without judgment, and take them in as learning tools!

Like the current political climate,
resisting them isn’t going to change anything.

But you can get in alignment with the changes,
and harmonize with your environment.

“Agent Orange” in the White House is a cold, hard fact of life

But the current markets are likely to crash regardless of
whether or not he remains the President

The will of the people marches to the beat of a more
equitable, fair and just global economy

Yet wouldn’t it be ironic if We the People
were to say, “you’re fired.”?

People have been conditioned to believe that
maximum economic profit is the only way to live

The puppet masters want you to believe that private means better, and
that you should compete against your neighbor for a bigger piece of the pie

But a vibrational shift in the direction of an awakening inner peace
doesn’t mean you just sit around doing nothing, and not taking action.

If you see injustices, be like Dr. King and
connect with them head on with love.

When you become a beacon of love, light and laughter,
you are effectively dismantling the Military-Industrial-Complex

But not when you are complaining incessantly about Trump, the woes
of the world, and the abusive charlatans in positions of power

I hardly think that blue jays could spin greater
master illusionism than the fake news and quackery out there today

May we all do our part by being true wizards by
becoming the change we want to see in the world!

These internal shifts can be powerfully action-oriented,
like not feeding into spreading rumors and gossip.

Internal martial arts are intentional acts of
civil disobedience and non-violence.

When we practice in this dimension, you become a role model for a New Age
that is predicated on being your own unique diverse expression of a unified whole!

I know a lot of people who are feeling the
rapid pace of living in the world today,

It can be hard to respond to the hurry up offense
But you aren’t giving up when you surrender to the will of the Universe

Rather, you find the courage to rise up, and stand in your own personal
authority to show what the New Age of Aquarius can look like

You reveal this reality to people as it reflects from your energy field
toward someone else, even a stranger on the street

Don’t get caught up in who is or isn’t conscious or appreciative of it

Just being in this space will naturally inspire others in your orbit,
if not now, then when the time is right for it to awaken in them

Many folks are going through changes in latitudes and changes of latitudes
Relationships are part of those energetic shifts . . .

A family member that you once felt a close connection to
now might appear like an effort to get along with in the way that you want

Even more trying could be a rift in a marriage or domestic partnership

Are you burned out in a job, or feeling like you need
a fresh start in a new location?

Full Moons, changing seasons, and new ages bring these
issues to the forefront

Spiritual awakenings, and growth do that too.

Have you rebelled against convention, and traditional relationships,
and are now wondering if you should open up to explore them with an open heart?

Conversely, have you bought into doing things
conventionally and traditionally, and are now feeling moved to
become more free-spirited, with a strong desire to explore other ways of
expressing yourself in relationship?

Wherever you are at on your soul journey . . .

Be there with a compassionate heart,
and gentle softness along your communion with fellow travelers

Beaming much love, inner peace, and happiness to all of you as
you travel along the trails of your life,

2017 the number!
Sound the trumpet of the Bald Eagle in thunder . . .

Tragic events like Hurricane Harvey,
and unexpected deaths of loved ones are hitting us hard

But the winds of Climate Change still ride the lightning and strike on rising waters

We all have to work together, and do our part in order to
Trump the Towers that Be . . .

From neurons to neighborhoods,
we are moving into a new frontier of we consciousness

Here in this hard land,
we must move forward by enduring painful tragedies of life . . .

A dirge moves toward the Autumn Equinox, while
songs of waning life, death and dying are blowing in the wind . . .

Survivors guilt always circles around our hearts,
and crops up in our souls . . .

Might as well give ourselves permission to grieve
by leaning into any uncomfortable feelings . . .

May we be guided into illuminating our better angels of compassion and empathy,
given any unwanted emotions we might be experiencing intensely right now

It is harder to hide now from facing the sobering uncertainties of life,
that are magnified by the lack of control that can level our conscious minds . . .

Grandfather Sun is always with us,
even as dark nights move closer in from a shady horizon

It takes a leap of faith to walk into the uncertainty of Infinity . . .
Spirit has a Divine Plan that we might as well surrender to

Picture an eagle’s talons to strengthen your personal authority so that you can
balance earth’s gravitational pull with your free-spirited creative energy

Release any feelings of having clipped wings that hold you back
and welcome your feet anchored in the ground!

Till the next trailhead,

Ari

Hi Folks,

I am going to shift my traditional weekly footwork with this week’s unexpected switchback.

Our hiking trio reached our collective zenith by reaching the summit of our goal of climbing 48, 4000 footers in New Hamphire’s ancient White Mountains recently. We ended our accomplishment by visiting the Bonds. There’s not a bad view in the Whites, but the views of this side of the mountains was truly epic. My hats of to the Croo at Galehead Hut – you guys rock!

What can I say, our journey was a peak experience, coupled with amazing vistas, and unpredictable weather patterns. You really have to do some leg work to earn your steps, so to speak.

But with lots of moving parts of family responsibilities, and life cycle doings over almost the last decade, I wanted to share our achievement with you.

Also, as one of your earthling peers, I highly recommend you get out in Nature, and enjoy the ride.

Till the next trail mark,

Ari

Catbird cultivates effective communication through language,
albeit words without respect sometimes get lost in translation . . .

Express yourself in a way that is seen and heard!

Speaking from a personal place of power reveals a commanding presence

But a verbal delivery that resonates in a burning heart
lights up fiery vibes of strength and intelligence . . .

Catbird’s melodious meow sings from a soulful place

May we watch enticements that call for aggressive reactions –
Instead, choose a response from an inner space of calm

Forthcoming astrological eclipses in August
ignite energetic opportunities to flip geo-scripts

Might as well give a peaceful conversation on the inside a chance
Whilst at the same time becoming the change you want to see in the world . . .

Talk soon,

Ari

A Full Buck Moon entered into our skies earlier today . . .

Snake slithers out of its dark hole in a spirited way,
coming out of the closet into the light of day . . .

Like primal emotions that get triggered right about now

What feelings are simmering beneath the surface of your defense mechanisms –
waiting to jump out of the deeper waters of your soul?

Metaphorically, our old world is shedding old skins of toxicity . . .

Each and every one of us must release scar tissue that no longer
serves nor protects our sleepwalker ability
to pass through life in a hypnotic trance

Simultaneously, we are awakening to the healing tonic of the snake bite

What layers are we ready to let go of during the intense storms of a
forthcoming August astrological eclipse season?

Do we need more economic strangulation, military might
and escalating violence to wake us up?

How will your relationships with self and others transform and
realign their maps during these blowing winds of change?

In the Northern Hemisphere, summertime is in the air
Social activity and community connections are alive and free-spirited

Summer Solstice’s summit is fading into the backdrop . . .

Believe it or not, we are slowly making our way down the mountain
toward balanced light and dark forces again on Autumn Equinox in late September

Then after that, the dark night of feminine yin energies
will rise until Winter Solstice in December . . .

In truth, know that we are all diverse expressions of Oneness –
We belong to an interconnection that binds us in the
open arms of a loving Cosmic Consciousness

See you up the trails,

Ari

A Full Buck Moon arrives at the tail end of this week . . .

May the gentle lure of Deer guide you into points of
New adventures during your journey here

Baby groundhogs have surfaced from their wintry womb . . .
Their mother’s are kicking them out of the house now

Their energies reflect boundaries in spacial congregation,
with roommates or other family members . . .

Adopt the kind of respect embodied by Woodchuck . . .
The approach doesn’t have to be hard, rotten or bitter

Humanity could stand to learn how they develop their communal spaces
that harmonize with their social living environment

Notice how the wisdom of their parental launching style
Synchronizes with August’s forthcoming astrological eclipse season

Mother Nature can become a bit of a bear –
Especially when she is poked and prodded by dirty energy

Old selves are tested and fading into the backdrop . . .
This clears space for a death without dying perspective

A New Self and a New World want to be born in harmony

See you further down the trails,

Ari
