Posts Tagged ‘Autumn Equinox’

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.

Greetings Peeps,

The tides of change are not slowing down on the planet today.

Like riding a rollercoaster, you can raise your hand to the heavens,
twist and shout out to your god, let go, and enjoy the thrill of the ride.

Or you can resist every moment, and be seduced by your fears.

The dance between these realms of experience are akin to
how we weather the nature of the climate.

If you really lean into narcissism, and think you can control everything,
you’re likely to take everything personally, and probably slip
back into the old world of a savior complex.

In that sphere, it’s easy to feel either an inflated sense of self,
or completely deflated.

Sometimes, this shift happens on a dime.

I’ve traveled down that lonely road inside myself, and I know I’m not
the only one.

It’s hard not to let the barriers in place knock the
wind out of you.

Before you get back up, stay on the ground for a moment, feel the Earth
beneath you, merge with Her, and gaze at the clouds.

Maybe even climb a tree,
or sit beneath one for awhile.

What does that do for you?

But if you lean into your feelings of vulnerability, you can open up
to receiving the pillars of Love and Truth by way of the Universe.

It is the Nature of the Universe to provide us with signs and synchronicities.

The choice is ours to tread lightly on the surface, or scuba dive
into the shark infested waters of oceanic depth.

If you awaken to the reality that you are a soul that chose to become
mortal, then you know that everything during your time here is
transient and ephermal.

When you see from this vision, it is easier to go out on a limb,
and discover the gift of life, and how precious our time is here.

And it’s easier not to become this lifetimecentric in your viewpoints,
as in what’s in it for me, I’m gonna get mine kind of thinking.

The only thing about greed being good is that it shows us the
carnage of our fear of loss.

But then again, it is natural for expanding souls to welcome abundance,
so long as we cultivate an attitude of gratitude in our everyday footsteps.

Human beings are complex creatures.

But it is in our DNA to wake up
to becoming spiritual watchers while having human experiences.

It is important to learn how to play situational football in life.

Sometimes it’s go time, and you gotta run with the ball.

Other times it’s time to take the scenic route, smell the roses, or take a catnap.

If you’ve noticed Groundhogs, they ate a lot of food over the summer, often on
wet, rainy days to get ready for their wintery slumber.

Same with the chimpunks, scurrying around, and procuring their source.

And although squirrels keep on keeping, as nuts as they are –
they don’t seem to forget how to play and have fun.

Even if they do forget where they buried their acorns.

Till we tweet again,

Grandmother Moon’s wisdom speaks to us through stories woven
into dream catchers scripted by Spidery energetic creations

Many moons ago, stories were spun saying Spider
inspired language development

And so goes the saying that
in the beginning there was the Word

Picture a figure 8 sign of Infinity opening up
floodgates of unconscious possibilities

The time is now for co-authoring novel stories of living on our planet
Civil disobedience is a time-tested tradition of sustainable change

Part of that is walking the line in the center of a circle of a spiritual path

We all need to do our part to change the script
One way to do that is to let go of the transgressions of others
and not take their actions personally, nor feed into hate

Building tolerance and acceptances does not mean you
condone someone else’s bad behavior

But seeing their Sun and their Moon as parts of a greater whole,
help support the overall web of life take in a breath of fresh air

Old ways of doing things have gotten us tangled up in the blues

But pathways into inner peace walk in the direction of letting go of old wounds
This lightens your load and relaxes barriers to personal growth

Watching human impetus fluctuate between order and chaos
reminds us that Nature shows us that finding balance is right

Beyond reactions, base emotions that are uncomfortable to examine
are merely informative scribes that prompt us to be impeccable with our word
and not take things personally!

Till next time up the trails,

If you don’t pay attention to the details,
and you buy into the better the devil you know way of living . . .

Then it will be impossible to see the change you want in the world,
and you will probably have a hard time not getting lost in its madness

But it is true that our world has ripened more than
any other season for purification

Fall is here, leaves are changing,
and Nature’s cycle of death is in the air

A Full Harvest Moon shines on the skies on Thursday . . .

Sadly, another mass shooting tragically took place in Las Vegas earlier in the week,
and iconic rocker Tom Petty died unexpectedly

These tragic events bring our feelings of grief and loss to the surface,
as does the natural movement yinward during this time of year

Chaos also awakens our fears, and sobers us up to our vulnerability

Beneath the headlines, what does the location of this latest
calculated and methodical act of violence
have to say to us about the times we are living in?

Let us not forget the metaphor of people not knowing how to emote . . .

Can we feel empathy for their sense of not fitting in,
belonging, or rage against the rising tide of the
Military-Industrial Complex that President Eisenhower warned us against?

Are we really shocked that people are finding more heated ways
to ignite the tinder-boxed system into leveling itself –
even if their desired outcome is disruptive, disrespectful,
and without regard for consequence?

Of course, violence begets more violence – which is why the ends
justifying the means kind of thinking has never been a sustainable solution

It’s kind of like taking your own life, or the life of another

In this space, your soul is in a dark place,
and becomes even more lost in an
even darker place after following this path

People who have been brainwashed to believe in the
savior complex of Martyrdom are carrying a heavy cross

The truth is you have to lay it down,
and surrender to the Divine Will of the Universe to truly be free

It makes too much sense to do it more gracefully,
peacefully, and non-violently

We need a more equitable global marketplace that invests in the human factor,
our planet, and the other creatures that live with Her

And the so-called “by any means necessary” mantra of facsism on the
right and left political extremes

Forgets the details of remembering to breathe in
the clean, fresh air of inner peace . . .

See you up the trails,

Cat’s are reminders of adolescence . . .
Their presence is curious, and can be difficult to anticipate

They are difficult to outwit, and nearly impossible to herd!

Creative feminine yin pounces mysterious
energetic wave pulsations, not without more natural disasters

And things heating up on the planet in general!
But in these dark times, we might as well awaken Cat’s capacity
to see well when the lights are out

Many people are feeling like things are spinning out of control

More storms are brewing as we move deeper into Climate Change . . .
These are the days of the New Normal

People who lived in the 60s and didn’t miss it,
understand that today is like then on steroids . . .

Cats show us how to be both relaxed,
yet alert and oriented at the same time

The old world can remind us to suck it up,
especially when faced with great obstacles

Everybody do this by loving yourself,
and others as much as possible . . .

Picture becoming like the power of water . . .
A gentle, and soft dead calm of a deep ocean

See and hear this mantra cradling your soul in
the form of a safe womb-like setting

A Full Harvest Moon yield’s its crop on October 5th

Become aligned with Nature, and reap Her bountiful blessings
Rather than resisting the apparent curses of Her changing seasons

Till the next trail head,

Turkey Vulture signals minimal use of resources
for maximum spiritual energetic output . . .

Our Auric fields release toxic waste
from a purifying spiritual cleansing . . .

An earthy New Moon shines a new season –
arriving this week with Autumn Equinox

Nature reflects equality between light and dark
forces of masculine and feminine energies

Sunlight wanes, as darkness makes her assent
where she will reach the hight of her power on December’s Winter Solstice

May the powers of feminine energies come in
gentle and soft waves of systemic change

The spirited light of day of a New Age
cannot be turned off now . . .

We all have the power to move more deeply into our hearts
and become embodiments of higher spiritual capital

We can all become meditative and prayerful
in relaxing the old war like ways of our old world selves

Instead, we can become the media of inner peace
from the inside out

It might be a jungle out there that feels unwelcome for many
But at the same time, we can become more aligned with Nature’s way

May our humanity develop exponentially to catch up
and exceed the speed of our technology . . .

Here in the land of milk and honey,
Let us share milk and bread before the storm
so that everyone is equipped to weather the fronts effectively . . .

Perhaps the dominant majority of the military industrial complex
pushes for war to be used to profit off of human, and planetary subjugation . . .

But we literally don’t have to buy into what the collective
con artists perspectives are peddling!

We just need to love each other and make a heart-centered approach
the hallmark of our universal planetary currency

See you along the trail head,

Ari

The energy of Squirrel and Chipmunk reflect heightened activity levels right now
Last week’s waning Corn Moon reminds us that we sow what we reap . . .

The seasonal harvest is in . . .
Now is the time to think about preparing for winter supplies

Short term gains should not forget long-term returns!

Nature reflects balance on an arriving Autumnal Equinox . . .

Light and Dark energies will be equal, if only briefly then . . .

For our friends in the Southern hemisphere, it will be their Vernal Equinox
They will be climbing toward peak light on their Summer Solstice in December

Here in our neck of the woods, the Sacred Feminine will gain momentum on toward
December’s Winter Solstice, where we will coax back the light from dark nights

It’s natural to come down into our souls, quiet down, sleep, rest, meditate
and become further in touch with our darker emotions

Might as well lean into, and even embrace Nature’s rhythms if you can dig it

We have descended downward the mountain from
peak light on Summer Solstice . . .

Today, our journeys trek further into the dark with fading trail lights

Try to keep an open mind and heart on your travels . . .
Picture walking in the center of the circle with balanced footwork

Moving closer to love will help you stay further away from fear
Besides, it takes more energy to hate than to love

From this perspective, we allow the truth to set us free!

See you along the trails,

Ari
