A Full Snow Moon wanes in the skies
She was a good reminder to be gentle on ourselves

I remember when Grandfather Sun spoke
of marriage and getting older as not being “for wimps.”

One of the good ancestral mantras of the old days sometimes
worth drinking in is to, “suck it up buttercup”

As spiritual beings having human experiences, we
have our gardens to tend to

And while this means looking after our higher selves,
it also means paying attention to our other relationships

This can spring forth tensions
between which relationships we prioritize

Might as well go with the flow during
this Pisces time of year

Meditation on the calm depths of the ocean
are good medicine for your sea of consciousness right now

Maybe it’s a marriage, a coworker, a family member, or an old friend
Sometimes, our emotional selves come on like a Tsunami

It is good to be in your heart, but you don’t want to forget your head
Of course the tides otherwise are also true

Moving further into a New Age means the old ways
are further away in the rearview mirror

And yet there are labor pains

with new normals whose seeds cannot be suppressed

Here are a couple of new poems I have included in this entry . . .

Haiku Poem:

Mother Nature is
Good medicine for the soul
A sound prescription

Tanka Poem:

Nature is healthy
Energetic food for the
Soul, mind, body and
Spirit vessel that travel
Multidimensional realms

Also, here is my new author website, if you wish to check it out:

The Imbolc is coming, which represents the mid-point
between the Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox.

And the Chinese Lunar New Year of the Pig comes on
February 5th, along with a New Moon the day before that

So the new energies of a new year are still strong right now . . .

Of course in The United States, the popular
Groundhog Day tells us if we have six more weeks of winter,
depending on whether or not the groundhog sees his shadow.

The energy of Groundhog awakens the death of the old self
without actually physically ending your life.

I wonder how many suicides could be prevented if, or even
the public’s general fear of death might relax,
if a healthy energetic diet of
Groundhog medicine was more consistently consumed?

Changing seasons, death without dying,
and even physical death itself,
is merely a transition.

Like the Law of Transience teaches us,
all life is not without change.
It’s one constant that we can count on.

Given that groundhogs hibernate in winter,
and dig elaborate underground homes,
it makes perfect sense that they symbolize
digging into our subconscious,
to see what might be hiding beneath
the shadows of our conscious reality.

Meditation on Groundhog can awaken a sense that
there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Use these energies to be curious about what feelings have been
simmering cautiously beneath the surface of your conscious experience with reality

Perhaps they will lead you into the depth of your humanity and personal divinity

Just a shift in perspective can literally transform
the way the world looks right in front of your eyes . . .

See you onward along the trails,

With yesterday evening’s waning Full Wolf Moon,
I can’t help but meditate on
Wolf’s politics that embody a delicate balance of
pecking order, and democratic principles . . .

Do you see that humanity needs to evolve into a more
fair and just place for all of us to
game and win on a playing field that is level for everyone?

That means that our unity is actualized,
and our diversity is celebrating the whole
being greater than the sum of its parts.

We are all cut from the same cloth,
and are called to heal from the inside out.

Meditation on Wolf can bring you into a
wise minded place of a peaceful warrior sphere of internal martial arts . . .

If President Trump and the Establishment
are parroting the need to build a Great Wall to
segregate the Americas, then
why don’t the economically powerful Billionaire
corporate Empire offer to pay for it?

But then again, I’m not the only one who dreams of
doctors without boarders, a world without possessions,
and a shared living space where everyone has equal access
to resources . . .

And at the same time, imagine everyone
gently allowing calming, peaceful, and non-violent
action toward the inner and outer worlds of
our planetary consciousness and beyond.

This is important to remember now more than ever
because we all suffer, and many are dealing with
sick souls and loved ones that have already left the planet
or are really struggling in their lives right now . . .

Winter is a time to get in touch with our darker feelings,
like grieving our losses.

Listen to the sounds of the forest, like the
creaking and crackling cadence of woods and trees.

What happens when the front pages headline this way of
being, and those deep pockets behind the musings
start valuing creature/living climate capital?

It can’t be done without a grassroots intentional committment by
individuals and small groups that are open to a new covenant
showing that our humanity can exceed our technology!

We all have the sovereign right and responsibility to
dream up a new dream for our collective consciousness . . .

May we align with Wolf tracks, working in the positive to guide
us into blazing new pathways in the progressive trails ahead.

Till our next junction,

Ari

The Winter Solstice arrives on December 21st,
signaling the darkest day of the year in the Northern hemisphere

A Full Cold Moon follows in its wake on the day after that.

Spirits can run high and naturally crouch low this time of year . . .

Might as well allow these tension of opposites
flow in your being without getting too swayed in either direction.

Another astrological eclipse season is coming shortly after
the birth of the Gregorian New Year in early January.

The Chinese New Year of the Pig rolls in on February 5, 2019

More winds of change are in the air

Do you see the parallels between President Hoover
and the stock market crash of 1929 and today’s plummeting capital?

Consider these changing tides a newer redistribution
of wealth and financial appreciation for the many!

What about the parallels between President Nixon,
Watergate and President Trump and “Russiangate?”

Underneath these time traveling synchronicities is
a growing remember when tune to “power to the people”

The darkness of feminine energies is rising,
as is further movement into a new Aquarian Age Consciousness.

As always, picture peaceful, calming thoughts,
and be gentle on yourself.

At the same time, do what you can to make the world a better place.
But remember to do so with love in your heart.

If you find yourself being seduced by hate,
be mindful to exhale this dead energy,
and let it go to so that it can transform into the light of the Universe.

In this dark time of year, think about the resurrection of the light

He rises everyday day till Spring arrives on the Vernal Equinox in March,
and then the sunlight grows stronger every day after that
until He peaks on the Summer Solstice in June

Till we tweet again peeps,

The Arrival of my New Books

Hi Folks,

It is a blessing to announce the publication of my two new books, that also beautifully illustrate my Aunt Barbara’s artistic wizardry.

Something to Chew on Reborn is an expanded version of my first published book that enhances, yet maintains the integrity of the original piece.

Also, it is an honor to see Something to Chew On For The Children’s Soul evolve from the original idea, as the dream of writing a children’s book has been on the heart list for a long time.

Helping people is a passion of mine, and I like to inspire people to awaken their spirits. It is my hope to reach as many people as possible through my writing.

I remember back in college, when I did an independent study with one of my psychology professors, along with one of his coworkers who was a therapist in private practice. At that time, we were exploring the idea of bibliotherapy as a therapeutic tool between sessions, as a way to help people get unstuck, so that they could transform their lives.

I am deeply thankful for all of your support and encouragement along the way, and really appreciate it!

And, I look forward to sharing the link to my new author website with you once it is ready.

Here is the link to check out my new books:

Sending all of you spirited blessings, and a seasonal harvest of inner peace,

I heard someone say recently that the holidays are whatever you make of them.
Isn’t that true about everyday life?

In America, we are moving further into the season know as the holidays.
This time of year serves up mixed feelings for our culture,
which reflects the sign of the tumultuous times
we are living in on the planet at large.

And there are is a deeper and higher multidimensional Universe at play,
a vibration we have always been a part of – a reality more of us are waking up to.

More people are opening their eyes to the sacred ways of Nature,
yet others are walking around with eyes wide shut.
Still, others are losing their minds, checking out,
killing themselves or killing others.

In the pain and suffering, there is great tragedy

We in the modern Western world have been conditioned to destroy.
Just look at the medical model, and the Military-Industrial Complex.

But awakening to our “better angels”,
allows us to use our shadow sides as spirit guides to move through the darkness
so that we can move through the gateways of transformation.

This is a guiding light

You might think to yourself that “getting older sucks”,
and be seduced by the temptation to glorify youth culture,
and look on the good old days through the lens of nostalgia.

We are like the seasons, and we go through changes accordingly.
As such, Old Man Winter has shown himself by bringing us snow.

We have officially crossed the mid-point between the Autumn equinox,
and are moving closer to the darkest day of the year on the Winter solstice.

But that gives us an opportunity to look forward to our days getting a little longer,
and filling our hearts with a little more light everyday until the Vernal equinox in March,
when light and dark energies will be equal again.

Or maybe you’re hard on yourself about your transgressions,
or about how you’ve hurt others. With the holidays coming,
a Full Moon on its way, and Mercury in retrograde, the temptation to focus
on getting depressed about the past or anxious about the future grows.

But if you consciously meditate on the spiritual energy of Turkey,
then you can awaken your spiritual eyes to see abundance all around you,
and stuff yourself with an attitude of gratitude in your heart for the shared blessings that exist today,
and everyday really. And if you find your energy field depleted or consumed
by the energy of others, you can picture a turkey to help you ward of those negative energies.

Stay grounded, and connect to the roots of the Earth.
Drink lots of water, eat whole foots, and exercise in a way that you “don’t sweat the small stuff.”
Be gentle on yourself, look for the silver lining, and make positive interpretations.
Leave it to a Full Beaver Moon to give you the industry you need to design
new internal structures inside yourself to give you the
spiritual power you need to rise up to the challenges that you face.

Beaver can help you find alternative pathways that you might not have even known were there.
Then, if you notice a new way of doing something, give that more of your attention.
Novelty is good, but repetition can be a good thing too.

Old habits may die-hard.

But new ways of doing things are ready to spring forth!

Till we tweet again peeps,

I remember hearing an amazing story recently,
about a hawk swooping out of the sky,
and then unexpectedly offering a freshly killed snake,
as a surprise gift along the path of a startled traveler . . .

Given that Hawk symbolizes the power of observation,
we are invited to see what messages are being sent to us from Spirit . . .

What does Snake have to say to you about the power
of fire that burns within our soul?

Election Day swoops in tomorrow,
along with a New Moon on Wednesday . . .

The winds of change are swirling around in the air!

Hawk has connections with New Moons,
and Mercury . . .

And at the tail end of next week, we will be revisited by
Mercury in Retrograde again.

Many people experience spacing out more at that time, or feel like
they are walking in a Twilight Zone kind of reality.

But Mercury in Retrograde is also a good time to look at things
in a different light, venture deeper into the dark,
and give rise to a new moon shine through a wider angle lens.

Of course New Moons are always associated
with new beginnings . . .

Our ancestors believed that the wall between the
spirit and material realms relaxed at this time of year,
making it easier for our different worlds to intersect.

If you magnify that with the energies streaming in right now,
it might be tempting to get sucked into your fears,
and find yourself coming from places of hate . . .

But try to trust in the Universe, and its vibration of
Love and Truth to light our way together, as we
move further into a new connections.

It is a good time to meditate on letting go of old ways, old boxes,
shedding the conditioning of our old skins,
so that we can awaken to new,
more porous ways of being at this time.

Snake reflects metamorphosis . . .
Yesterdays shadows want to transform into the light of healing

Perhaps you venture down into a snake hole in your consciousness,
and see how you can come up with new eyes to look at
your past fears in a fresh way . . .

Emotions are waxing now, and will be further amplified
by a Full Beaver Moon on November 23rd.

Beavers are epic builders, and like to get their work done
before swamps freeze for the Winter . . .

I think about how many of our Founding Fathers were Freemasons,
and that their animal totems empowered them to create in a new industry,
while building a New World back then.

Perhaps this could be an invitation into the realm of Temperance
regarding anger about their ignorance of their injustices at that time,
in spite of the Divine expression that manifested as the Constitution.

But consider that people didn’t even know that
dinosaurs existed on this planet
at the time when this sacred document was written.

What is looked upon as conventional science today,
can easily become yesterday’s dinosaur!

The will of the people are speaking up.
We might as well hear the messages that are being spoken!

Today, we are waking up again to new perspectives,
frontiers, and ways of being together.

Till we tweet again peeps,

Ari
