A Full Hunter Moon arrives on October 24th,
and then comes the traditional Samhain on Halloween

These events, along with this time of year,
and the energy of Bat awakens
a symbolic metaphorical death of the old self.

Do you see the veils thinning between
the spirit realm and our material world?

The line between realms is less concrete right now –
Giving us a clearer remembering that
even in death, there is also rebirth.

Our past lives are meant to awaken our soul’s evolution,
and help us expand beyond what we were.
Bat guides us through the dark night of the
soul so that we can hear the
spiritual callback of metamorphosis,
and who we are becoming.

Our ancestors celebrated the Samhain —
the approximate halfway point between the
Autumn Equinox and Winter Solstice.

When ancient Romans bobbed for apples,
they believed that the first person to successfully retrieve an apple,
would be the first to marry in the new year.

One way to look at letting go of old selves, masks,
and ways of being would be to
divorce yourself from the ways that no longer
serve you in your consciousness.

Look beyond your habituated mind . . .

What is underneath your robotic doings of
your everyday routine?

Is there something new that
your soul would like to express?

In much the same way as Rome wasn’t built-in a day,
A New Earth doesn’t happen overnight either.
As we head further into waning light, and darker days,
we have an opportunity to turn yin-ward,
and plant the seeds into our souls that we
want to see come out into the sunlight in spring.

A new marriage happens between masculine and feminine
energies around the Vernal Equinox in March.

But before that, we will start to coax back
the light after the darkest
day of the year on the Winter Solstice.

Remember the mantra that energy is energy . . .
It’s what you do with it that counts.
It is perfectly natural to feel more tired,
experience darker emotions, need more rest,
journal more, have more active lucid dreams at night,
and be revisited by the ghosts of yesteryear,
and maybe even past regrets.

But don’t get stuck in beating yourself up about it.
Remember to be gentle on yourself.
Being hard on yourself might feed your ego,
but it only hurts your soul.

Is there a spirit of a new way of being with yourself
that wants to come alive in your consciousness?

When we make a conscious choice to come down into our souls,
and dig into the hidden nooks and crannies, then
it is possible to look upon whatever it is that you see
with a heartfelt, gentle gaze of compassion.
It is possible to learn to love
all aspects of yourself, even if it seems daunting.

Some people think you have to kill your ego, or even bury a lifetime
to release your demons. But that isn’t really the case.

The ghosts of the habituated mind
can illuminate a new way of living with awareness

Look in the mirror of your mind,
call on the spirits of the season,
and use the energies of this time of year
to let go of your old selves, masks, and past ways of being that you
want to release, and send them out into the Universe.

Till we tweet again peeps,

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,

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

Last week’s Full Harvest Moon and Lunar Eclipse wanes O’er the skies
Consciousness descends into dimming lights in the Northern Hemisphere

The shades of Autumn Equinox reflect balance of Masculine and Feminine

Bear medicine can help you know when to back off and when to assert yourself
Picture a Bear to stand in your own personal authority

Remember that a Yinward bound train gains momentum until Her climax
Deep into the caves of December on Winter Solstice

Boundaries are always an important opportunity for a mindful walking meditation

Darker nights symbolize a letting go of action-oriented yang
A sleepier time of the year reveals a thinning of the veils

The discrepancy between the material and spirit realm fades away

Our friends in the Southern Hemisphere will paradoxically
see more Light on their horizon
Souls are feeling more energized and intense there

Look to nature to nurture relationships within yourself and others
It is wise to move with our pain or we end up not moving at all

Rooting into the earth of our inner human potential . . .
Reflects that Life tastes as sweet as honey!

See you later on the trails,

Mountain Lion hides in caverns, cracks and crevices
Their energies reflect silent leadership and strong feminine power

Yin is rising toward Autumn’s ascension

Feminine power is strongest when cultivated gradually
through a gentle and soft approach

A Full Sturgeon Moon floats
into our stream of consciousness on August 18th

Humans have been programmed to be afraid of the dark
Which is why it is tempting keep the blinders on and go back to sleep

But the light of consciousness wants to shine on
what we were once blinded by

That could be learning something new about yourself or someone you know
Perhaps that new information does not sit well with your preconceived notions

In that light, maybe the shades of your worldview has been forced to lift

But Nature reflects storms brewing that require us to pay attention
to the subtleties of the changing seasons

Cats remind us of the magic, mystery and synchronicity
that lurk behind shadows and dark areas

What self-evident truths want to leap out into the waning sunlight?

The Autumn Equinox is coming soon in later September
Between Tao and Zen we will experience an astrological eclipse season

At that time, light and dark energies will be fleetingly equal again
Masculine and feminine energies will be in alignment with one another

What winds of change are brewing in the air up there?

When I think of how maddening it is to hold onto the shores,
I remember the wisdom of letting go and letting God

Because what we resist will persist

It does feel less crazy to float with the current
and trust the process without throwing caution to the wind

See you further on up the trails,

Beaver guides us through the dog days of August
Offering multiple maps toward the
Fall Equinox trail head in September

Where light and dark energies
Dance together in an equal flow in the Northern Hemisphere

A powerful eclipse season is blowing in the winds
Gazing along the horizon are three consecutive “Supermoons”
that light up the skies in August, September and October

An evening shade begins to set in our backdrop as
Dark feminine energies rise to reveal
the “thinning of the veils” in later Autumn

Our friends in the South celebrate the opposite side of the same coin with
Spring Equinox – breaking dawn with rising sunlight to climax on their
Summer Solstice during our winter version after a long December

Beaver’s message to us is to “sober up”, become more productive,
get your engine out of neutral and “just do it.”

Its energies assist us in manifesting the Dreamtime into our material reality
We are inspired to build accomplishment, practicality and creativity
into our everyday living

Are the Stock Exchange and the Global Economy ready to
start “investing in loss?” – From an energetically spiritual perspective?

Are we ready to level and heal our divisive and separatist ways?

But be careful of becoming too stubborn, conservative or materialistic
While in persistent hot pursuit of your goals
Try not to get too consumed with the chase or any other emotional
old world seductions like hate or revenge

Letting go and leaving it to Beaver
Remind us to work in harmony with each other . . .

Sharing a space where we honor diversity in our talents, harness our strengths
and support the challenges we face together for fluid group work

With Beaver, there are always multiple routes and exit strategies . . .
So that we don’t get too dammed up in the waterways of collective consciousness

See you further on up the trails,

Ari
