A Full Beaver Moon arrives on Saturday . . .

Beavers naturally reflect industry, signaling a heightened workload
before Winter’s freeze slows yinward movement down till dead in its tracks

With the Samhain’s passing, we are revisited by past loved ones,
and ancestral spirits echoing in our ears, and whispering in the winds

We are leaving the light, and Autumn behind,
while moving closer toward Winter Solstice in December

Ghosts of yesteryear are revisiting our consciousness . . .
No need to let them haunt you, eerie as they might feel

Use their energies to let go of whatever wounds
have weighed heavily on your heart . . .

Many of us have lost power in our neck of the woods . . .

I think about how hard our ancestors had to work in the old days –
without modern conveniences or technological advances

I wonder about how our brothers and sisters in the South,
have been struggling with their limited access to basic resources

Civilization has certainly set established traps of precedents
that have gotten dammed up, and frozen solid in their tracks

Meditation on Beaver can build new neuronal pathways . . .
Leading toward transformative free-thinking possibilities

Opening up to spiritual abundance awakens
multidimensional realities that soften barriers protected by conscious minds

Till we meet again along 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,

Beaver represents productiveness and the construction of dreams. With Beaver, we are reminded of the power of community as captured by the old African proverb “it takes a village.” As industrious as they are, beavers help us remember that the dams of life are built “one twig at a time”. Building a dream of home and family is one of the more popular dreams, thus the expression “American Dream”. But manifesting this dream takes action and it is a process. Beavers reflect to us the experience of residing in a close-knit family network and mating with a partner for life. Manifesting our dreams is a co-creative group process that breathes life into a harmonic convergence of the highest fraternal order. In this sorority, everyone contributes by harnessing everyone’s strengths. Although we are a diverse group of sentient beings, we are all Universal children of Great Spirit. We all share a primal knowing in our spirits to freely express our souls to compete and cooperate for mutual aid. Beavers work and play together, reflecting to us the possibility of mixing business and pleasure. While one beaver gnaws, another keeps watch. Have you ever felt a chord struck in your soul from a beaver’s playful thump on a river bend?

Legend tells us that Beaver was a totem for the mystical order of Freemasons. As such, beavers reveal effective navigation of land and water worlds with secret tunnels and alternative escape routes within their home environment. “If we eliminate our alternatives, we dam the flow of experience into our lives.” How many industrious workers in landscape architecture, design and masonry have Beaver totems? Perhaps it’s pie in the sky to entertain the possibility of humans living like beavers in harmony with our environment. As intelligent as we are, if a Beaver can do it, then why can’t we? Beaver politics feature selective tree-cutting, providing us a glimpse into eco-sensitive development and farming in that they allow for growing brush that feeds deer and moose. Moreover, residual dams wash out and leave organically rich soil for human farming. Accessing the Beaver within will help us stay in alignment with Nature in an organic way that moves more gracefully with Climate Change. If only our World’s movers and shakers would emulate this awareness and bring more Beaver energy into our global geo-politics. When we are in alignment with Nature, we don’t need to kill with polluting pesticides and insecticides. Business can thrive, but businesses of chemical dust are allowed to rust in peace and maybe become compost for a New Age. Given that we are living in a consumer-driven world, labeling our foods simply empowers consumers to make more conscious choices. Many folks will make healthier choices when it is convenient and self-evident. Awareness is key. In that light, there is a Full “Buck” Moon on Monday, July 22.

Good works are good for the goose and good for the gander, as Beavers know. Even construction engineers are inundated by Beaver’s productivity. Have you ever wondered how many dentists would like to sink their teeth into Beaver’s knowledge of proper dental hygiene? Just imagine what those razor-sharp teeth could do to a predator. But beavers don’t abuse their power when standing their ground. Humanity could stand to learn from Beaver in this area. Violence is big business in our modern world, especially in America with the escalation of dangerous weapons on the street. When will we wake up to the awareness that more folks packing heat increases the likelihood of violence and tragedy? Shooting from the hip first and asking questions second is a receipt for disaster. I know many are hurting about the outcome of the Trayvon Martin court decision and of course his grieving family by his life cut short. We have much Karma to clear when it comes to issues of class and race. We also see the accumulation of negative Karma with respect to George Zimmerman. What kind of life does he now have to live? Even if he had been convicted, would a Higher spiritual form of justice been served?

Have you been neglecting your most basic dreams? Are your dreams in need of some repair work? Are you or others around you becoming too lost in their dreams-always dreaming and never acting on those dreams? Is your home in need of repair? Meditation on Beaver helps us take action in bringing our dreams into the material realm by tapping into their traits of accomplishment, practicality and creativity.

See you further on down the trails,
