October ends with the modern holiday of Halloween, which traces its roots to the Samhain. The Samhain marks the approximate mid-point between Autumn Equinox and Winter Solstice. Our days are getting darker and we are turning more yin-ward. Our ancestors honored this spirited time by recognizing the “thinning of the veils” between the physical and spirit realms. As such, it is an especially good time to connect with our loved ones that have passed on into the spirit realm. There is so much help in the spirit realm if only we ask. Keep a picture or memorable item of power that reminds you of your beloved on an alter and meditate on that to connect with their energy.

In the beginning of November, we welcome the traditional All Saints Day, All Souls Day and the Day of the Dead and a Scorpio New Moon on the Fourth. Even today, mask wearing remains a powerful spiritual practice that invokes portals into other dimensions and alternate realities, and can also be a good exercise in empathy through perception of other viewpoints.

A Beaver Full Moon rises on Friday, November 19th, 2021. Our ancestors honored this Full Moon by recognizing this time when beavers finished their winter preparations and took shelter into their lodges. Civil Rights calendar highlights include National Native American Heritage Month, Solidarity Week, Diwali, Transgender Day of Remembrance on the 20th, Thanksgiving, and the beginning of Hanukkah at the tail end of the month. Reflect on how we are all equally part of oneness and yet we are diverse expressions of Spirit. Also, the winds of a powerful astrological Eclipse season are blowing in, which will trigger the status quo and further rattle the cages of our global community. Specifically, there will be a Lunar Eclipse on the Full Moon this month and a Solar Eclipse on the New Moon on December 4th. Keep in mind that the Universal Pillars of Love and Truth are what really hold things together, not the ego made structures that appear to run the show. The shake ups are meant to move us into alignment with that. Remember that what we resist will only persist and lead to more pronounced suffering. Might as well say yes to the present moment and be mindful of the home of your breath.

A Full Beaver Moon awakens an attitude of gratitude for shared blessings.

Picture a Turkey to give you the spiritual power you need to

ward off any negative energies that want to suck off your aura.

As you wake up your Third Eye,

you become a more powerful spiritual watcher in your day-to-day operations.

Remember to think in moments, and just be with them,

one breath, one step, one moment at a time.

The time is now for feasting on an attitude of gratitude

Be thankful for everything that comes your way, even if it

doesn’t feather your ripple!

Don’t let that bum vibe hold back your spirit.

Picture a Turkey to fluff your energy field.

Are you feeling thankful for your blessings?

Or are you focusing on what you do not have, but wish that you did?

Turkey guides us into the shared space of gratitude and infinite blessings

Even if they are notorious for stealing their fellow nervous woodland creature 

squirrel friend’s winter stockpiles of food storage . . .

In this way, Nature holds up a mirror to look at the power of leveling impulses.

Let us give back to our Mother Earth –

As a way of saying thank you for the abundance She has provided us.

Picture a Turkey to ward off any negative energies that might be

sucking on your energy field and leaving you feeling drained.

A Full Beaver Moon reminds us of a time when peak beaver activity

inspired our ancestors to set traps before swamps froze.

We all need enough fur to keep our bodies warm to survive the cold winter months.

In that industry, Turkey helps our souls warm up to the idea of

feeding ourselves a clean spiritual diet.

We are waking up to the birth of a New Age and Paradigm.

We are lifting the veil from our Third Eye that has been

sleeping in a hypnotic trance for a long time.

A critical mass of feminine energy is gaining power in numbers . . .

Trying to put the brakes on this yin bound train will only delay our gratification –

Met with predictive futile resistance

Equal access to resources is an unfolding convergence of harmony again –

Of sustainable living for our planetary consciousness and beyond.

Commentary:

Imagine all of us sharing our resources and gaining equal access to the greater good. We know that we have been well-trained to divide and conquer and view ourselves as separate from one another. In that, we have become good at making judgements about each other as being either superior or inferior by sizing one another up. But in today’s tumultuous times, we have been given a clear view of perspective taking. A culture of egalitarianism is being born, albeit not without the labor pains. While the pain is inevitable, suffering is a choice. The freedom to choose whether or not we will continue to suffer is a powerful choice. Waking up to finding a way out of the suffering is in our best interest as a collective consciousness. Abundance is a real possibility. We will know when a critical mass is here when enough of us choose to believe it and see the change reflected in a New World as it is revealed before our eyes. May any benefit from this practice help relieve my own suffering. As well as the suffering of all beings. Today my body, mind, emotions, my speech actions and deeds, will embody Loving Kindness, Compassion, Joy and Equanimity. May all Beings Be Free!

Take care of yourselves everyone,

Ari

A Strawberry Full Moon, and a Powerful Eclipse Season

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,

Ari

Please feel free to check out my recent you tube video with my coworker friend Nick Bucci, and featured guest Paul Knoll:

A Waxing Full Moon, Awakens The Thrill Of The Hunt

The Autumn Equinox has eclipsed us, and our days are getting darker.

From a spiritual perspective, the veils between the material and
spirit realms are thinning, and intersecting in more obvious ways.

Energetically, it’s a good time to turn yinward, and
be more mindful of darker, less welcome emotions.

And it isn’t getting any easier to live on the planet today,
with the intensifying labor pains.

But there is so much help from the spirit realm, if
only we remember to ask.

Now more than ever, it is the perfect time to ask,
so that you can receive the spiritual guidance you need.

Have you noticed your perceptual experiences heightened in this way?

Our ancestors are speaking to us more loudly and clearly
at this time of year, often through Nature.

Picture a Spider to step into Infinity,
and connect with your Higher Self to script
your New Story in this New Age and Paradigm.

Otherwise, you will just be eating Crow
if you let your ego take over, and miss out
on the magic and mystery of the unfolding “yellow brick road.”

Be like a Cat, and know that you can see in the dark,
and hear the sounds of Spirit guiding your Soul
through Its transformational energy of Bat.

The Samhain is on its way, the approximate mid-point between
the Fall Equinox and Winter Solstice.

Today, we have Halloween, and other cultural celebrations like
All Saints Day, All Souls Day, and the Day of the Dead.

Interestingly, Mercury goes in Retrograde then, which will
magnify Twilight Zone perceptions, and disrupt left brain
systems of thought.

But if you align with Bear, then you will access the dreamtime,
and make the shift into your intuitive faculties –
so long as you allow for faith and trust to become your waking reality.

Not coincidentally, daylight savings time ends on the Sunday after
all those dates.

In the Southern Hemisphere, movement through the
Imbolc/Spring Equinox/Summer Solstice are happening,
and their days are getting longer.

A Full Hunter Moon is on its way gracing us with
Her presence on Sunday, October 13th.

Meditate on the thrill of the hunt, or how we move through this
Full Moon cycle, rather than what we gain or lose from the hunt itself.

Like Lao Tzu would say, “nature is the best physician.”

But it’s always good to get outside, and unplug.

It will be more important to do that with the arrival of the
Astrological Winter Eclipse Season coming in December.

Perhaps if you have been sleepwalking through life in a hypnotic trance,
your eyes will open up to 20/20 vision in the New Chinese Year of the Rat.

Keeping Our Souls on the Ground While Treking along Summer Solstice Trailways

It can be challenging to speak your own truth and let go of it . . .

Maybe you hold a more politically liberal way of looking at the world,
but someone close to you tends to have a more conservative viewpoint

Some people are concrete thinkers and tend to embody rigidity,
while others tend to have minds more like parachutes

Without one, there’s no anchor
Without the other, there’s no setting sail

How do you make friends with these tension of opposites?

It’s when we get identified with our positions where we get into trouble . . .
Otherwise, we sometimes have to agree to disagree

Besides, if you feel charged to convince someone else to buy into your position,
then it might be a good idea to reflect on what’s behind that impulse

The seductive pacifier of fascist kind of thinking, is that it
promises the illusion that a fixed idea can become a savior

But there’s nothing more devilish than an immoveable mountain of fixed mind

Do we build up walls with regards to personal and geopolitical boundaries?
Or do we relax barriers, and become more open and fluid?

Given the rising intensities of Summer’s astrological eclipse season,
wrestling with these tension of opposites are becoming more intense

But shaking up our comfort zones, and habituated mind
are healthy ingredients for making forward progress in spirit and on ground

Maybe you can appreciate going with the flow –
But do you really want to push the river to unleash the secret of your success?

There is such a proliferation of programmed habituated thought forms making it
damn near impossible to opt out of worshiping the opinions of others!

It is healthy to be mindful of and sensitive to their frequencies . . .

But not at the expense of thwarting you into
relaxing into your own evolving vibration!

Self doubt is powerful bait of a status quo version of yourself –
perhaps you’ve been hooked by the lure of the better the devil you know

Be mindful of those stories that peddle the kind of personal beliefs
that sells you packages of your own fears!

On this time of Summer Solstice . . .

Let the rays of Grandfather Sun shine His divine light
onto your soul, illuminating the silhouette of your higher self!

Imagine yourself in the sunlight of possibilities of yourself
that you might not otherwise have envisioned

Drink in the fruits of the forthcoming Full Strawberry Full Moon to help you
see clearly that you have the fire of the sun in your being . . .

Use this beacon of light to torch your motivation to rise up to the Higher Self
that you are becoming the change you want to see in the world!

Till the next trailhead,

Ari

Roosting into a New Year

Last year was the Chinese Year of the Rooster . . .

In that reflection, we are reminded of the truth that if you are focusing
on the real tragedies of last year, then you will accurately see
the glass as half full, if not already empty on the inside and out!

But here’s an optimistic thought . . .

What happens when you look through a lens of Love?

Even if you can entertain the possibility that Rooster
also brought us the Sun, then you can see that consciousness
sheds its light on our planetary darkness

By allowing ourselves to see through the lens of Love,
we are able to call out the light illuminating the shadows

Keep in mind, we are in a Yin time of year
Dark emotions come up, and many souls have left our Home

But water is powerful feminine energy that breathes in
opportunities for creativity and meditative spirituality

Might as well say yes to that, unless you prefer to persist what you resist
That is a choice too, if you so choose!

When we traverse the dark night of our soul
We can come out of the ashes into a New Self

Disguised within every ending, new beginnings are awakening

In a month from last Tuesday’s waning New Moon
We will be tracking the Year of the Dog

Spring Equinox may not arrive till about a
month after that in later March . . .

But energetically, with an astrological spring eclipse season happening now,
a Full Snow Moon at the end of January, and the Imbolc signaling the halfway point
between Winter and Spring on February first . . .

From that perspective, Spring is already in the air!

Will the Groundhog see his shadow on
the resurrection of Groundhog Day?

See you up the trails,

Ari

Sealing The Deal in a New Year Ahead

Take the plunge with Seal into the darker depths of the ocean . . .
Welcome a vortex of primal creative waters pouring into our souls

A New Moon arrives on January 16th –
Let these energies be a catalyst for the waves of new year energies in Nature

A Chinese-Lunar New Year of the Dog rolls in about a month after that . . .
Time to build empathy in our heads and hearts for human shortcomings

Rising above the surface of a world of madness,
breathes in fresh air into suffocating old life support systems

Something new and different is waiting to be born into our collective consciousness

Analysis paralysis is like Groundhog Day revisited –
you get what you are, albeit aggravated by
recurring disappointments and let downs

Sometimes, you just got to flip the script and let the chips fall where they may
Tomorrow never knows where the winds of change might blow

So, if global markets tank, and sure thing predictions
were to fade away into dark nights . . .

What good would it do for you to stress out and worry about it?

We have been programmed to fear the unknown and what is uncertain
We have all been subject to systemic propagandizing
about the better the devil you know kind of memes . . .

Is that so?

Letting go of control issues is good for personal empowerment!
Surrendering to the will of the Universe reawaken a renewed sense of choice

What creative new envisioning to you have in your mirror of your mind?

See you further up the trails,

Ari

Grouse in the House

How do we abolish racial, and class inequalities?

Might as well say yes on the inside, while voting no on the outside
to the institutional reality of social injustice

But that takes an authentic look at your position of privilege
Sometimes, it’s hard to know what it’s like on the bottom,
when you’re sitting on top of the perch

Say it with me, and say it loud . . .

Peace in, and peace out to the complexities of the profiling ways of aggressive
military-industrial forces of maximum economic profit driven crowds

Whereas, in the acknowledgement, the healing begins with an open and
denial free approach to a shadowy world order of
modern slavery that blacks out the masses

As an earthling, of the overwhelming majority,
does it not make too much sense to promote meaningful work,
provide livable wages, with paid vacation, sick time,
and equal access to quality health care?

If we can make big expensive bombs, and satellite dishes,
then we can improve on our devolutionary systems in place,
move beyond life supports, and truly transform
into something beautiful by just all getting along, and spreading the love

No need to attach labels to this kind of free thinking
We are moving into a New Age of We Consciousness

Collaboration is ancient wisdom that tells stories that speak of
what is good for the Goose is good for the Gander

Harmony is being reintroduced as becoming a New Normal Mindset

Bottom line profit margins evolve into an ancient
taoist spiritual philosophy of investing in loss . . .

How do we make friends with divided Bear and Bull Markets?
Is there a Middle Way that transforms winners and losers?

At our core, we are formless, energetic beings of light that
become hip the vibe that we walk in the dark night of our souls

We should all be proud of the primal,
creative nature of our inner black soul power!

And in working with the darkness of feminine energy,
awaken to the potential to energize our bodies into luminous beings of light

Beneath the surface, we are all the color of water . . .

Meditate on the black and white synergy of the yin and the yang
Masculine and feminine energies work together with transformational equality

Access your personal power by walking in a figure 8 sign of infinity
to link-up connection with Heaven and Earth

Focus on positive interpretations by seeing blessings that are disguised by curses

Autumn Equinox is arriving in later September . . .

Eclipse season will be waning then
Light and Dark energies become equally balanced again

Race, like the yin and the yang, are always in flux and trying to find balance

Folks of mixed race, on physical appearance alone,
might invite a garden variety of reactions, including judgements by others

The god of opinion, thought police, and the voice in the head
perhaps wants you to believe you are what it says you are . . .

But you don’t need to carry that cross
Put it down, and let it go . . .

We shall overcome societal perspectives that divides into segregated boxes
that peddle folklore that we are either inferior or superior to one another

May we celebrate our diversity and unity in our consciousness

Notice any guilt and shame that might come up for you
and examine it with the light of heaven and the grounding matter of earth

The chattering monkey mind of anxiety
will drive you into madness if you let it

Remember to unplug, and take a step back from the world’s ills for a spell . . .

Connect with the synergy of good friends, and be outside together

Hear the wind blowing in the leaves, crickets singing, birds chirping

What do they have to say to you?

Till next time along the trails,

Ari

Coyote Beauty

Coyote appears along the trails this week
The tides of a Full Sturgeon Moon roll in to soulful shorelines

We are about to enter into another powerful astrological eclipse season,
and Mercury in retrograde will rise again in our collective consciousness

What past selves, or old relationship issues are revisiting your consciousness?
And our greater global community?

Have you noticed recurrent themes hiding behind any internal blockages –
maybe from shortcuts or bypass lanes you might have created
to protect against new growth opportunities?

Hard to believe summer is waning in a downhill gait
Subtle evidence of Fall is whispering in the air

Squirrels are dropping acorns with greater industry
as tree limbs are shaking in preparation for cold nights ahead . . .

Can you appreciate how they channel their nervous woodland creature energy?

Coping with life anxieties is really about how you
approach these challenges as opportunities for letting go of coveted outcomes

Coyote’s wisdom is about learning how to chuckle at your follies
Balance comes through laughing at Life’s insanity
without going straight outta woodland

A feminine truth about natural and chaotic ways of unpredictable mystery,
reveals a fair and balanced security system in the magic of dark unknowing forces

So, we have con artists convincing their mirrors
that they are the gods we should follow

Just be wise to that old act, instead of fooled
into getting swept off your feet by the peddling of fear and hate

And here’s a coyote tricky truth . . .

You are as much of part of that apparent stranger on death row,
as you are part of Donald Trump

Or anyone else you either put on a pedestal or demonize

It can be hard to see yourself in the other person you criticize
or whatever they are doing that bugs you, or moves you emotionally

Behind every furrowed brow or sarcastic snicker
lives dark emotions, and a universal sadness that grieves

With potential for a deeper passage into the channels of empathy

See you down trail,

Ari

Dragonfly Lightens Up Our Inner Skies

Dragonfly lands onto soulful inner space landing pads this week
Like us, they come from primordial creative waters

The energy of Dragonfly breathes the fires of color magic
onto paintings of our everyday living portraits . . .

A Full Sturgeon Moon swims into the seas of a Lunar Eclipse
arriving down the pike at the tail end of the first week in August . . .

The rising tide of the Age of Aquarius, and astrological eclipses in August
is streaming in Love and Truth into our collective consciousness . . .

But old world blockages fortify the status quo of old ways
Even if they are no longer working for us anymore,
and suffocating on life supports systems . . .

Bowing to the devil you know doesn’t mean you ignore your better angels
Stay away from fear and hatred, and closer to relaxing on rigidity . . .

Equality is awakening our individualistic diversity within our holistic unity!

This is easier to forget when watching the military-industrial complex,
and their carpet bagging bringing of dark emotions,
like fascist thinking out into the sunlight

Those old commercials try to convince us that we in the
United States are entitled to sit on a golden throne,

At the same time, we are sold on the idea that those living certain
profiled neighborhoods overseas are of lesser value . . .

But we see the same dynamic play out right here on our own turf
in areas populated by targeted demographics that include the poor and oppressed

Remember to keep it light with Dragonfly as a spiritual ally!

Till we meet again on the field,

Ari

Singing with Catbird

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
