Cardinal appears in our world today
As Father Sun just revealed a peak light experience
on a waning Summer Solstice

A Full Buck Moon runs through the sky trails ahead

Do you need a strong moral compass or a
yoke tattooed around your neck to be true to yourself?

Yang heats up his fires during the summer months
It is a time for outer growth and an action-oriented lifestyle

And yet, we are heading downhill now until light and dark
are equal again on Fall Equinox in September . . .

Can you sense seismic shifts of
Climate Change across the fruited plain?

As the world turns, may we remember the softness of
yin’s hands calm the nerves of anxiety ridden war mongering

May meditation on Cardinal’s whistles blow in the winds of change
that resonate with crystalline clarity in Mother Earth’s heart beat

See you up the trails,

Ari

Imagine the old story of the ugly duckling growing into a beautiful Swan
inspires humanity to undergo a similar transformation in consciousness

Perhaps it looks like an unlikely story, but then again
these are the days of wonders and miracles

A Full Flower Moon rises in the skies this week

It is also called a Wesak Full Moon
when Buddha’s light was born into our world

A flowering spiritual awakening is everywhere

But where there is light, there is also dark
There are many growing dangers out there

Keep in mind it is easier to judge and hate
than to love each other and find common ground

Fear spreads like wildfire . . .
and you always fear what you don’t understand

So doesn’t it make sense to be curious and empathic
in how we approach our differences?

Remember that where there is yin, there is yang
masculine energy lights the path toward yin’s darkness

Next time you find yourself sizing yourself up to someone else –
making a comparison about why your position is right,
and someone else’s is wrong

Or just putting yourself up on a pedestal by demonizing someone else
based on your belief that your way of living is preferred
and therefore should have dominion of another

Take a deep breath, and a break from that mind-set,
whilst just considering the opposite viewpoint for a moment . . .

Allow yourself to see the opposite side of the same coin
from both your head and your heart

This is how we move beyond us and them segregation,
transition into we consciousness, and brings balance to our Earth

Turkey Vulture flies in the skies this week,
in concert with a blossoming Full Pink Moon on Friday . . .

Spring is here in the Northern Hemisphere
and a colorful world is blossoming before our eyes

Psychically hang glide with Mother Earth’s thermals with minimal effort . . .

This signals an opportune time for a general
Spring Cleaning through the Moon’s last quarter

Purification, death-rebirth, new vision and connections to a
marital relationship with Heaven and Earth is awakening

Take in a living breath of oneness . . .
Exhale the dead air of segregationist thinking

Outward expansion of Yang’s expressiveness
Gives rise to powerful intuitive feminine song bird vocals

The resourceful ways of Turkey Vultures reflects
renewable energy and a natural conservation of our environment

May the political and business interests reflect the wisdom of Turkey Vulture!

Their medicine of disease prevention is best practice

Meditate on levitating above the physical laws of the material realm
So that we can release old ways that no longer serve

Walk in alignment with your own roots sinking into Mother Earth
Let any negative energies flow down into Her for renewable compost

Connect with ancestors whom have passed on . . .

May their spirits guide us into a unified playing field
reflecting a Heaven and Earth connection that we can see
with individual and collective eyes

A flooding of emotional memories from when they were living comes on like waves
Picture surfing them to gain a deeper appreciation for the living moment

Till next week takes flight,

Ari

Chickadees are fearless peaceful warriors . . .

They are effective spirit guides to have during
the waning intensities of last week’s Full Moon
and offer a more cheerful passage through a passing Spring Eclipse Season

When crows and vultures descend . . .
These tiny birds stand undaunted in their own personal power

Chickadees are small in physical stature
But they are symbolic of our own boundless power of spirit

We all should have the right to express our voice without oppression . . .
Learned helplessness is harder to internalize in a more
socially just and fair global community

We are spiritual beings having human experiences
More of us are waking up to this reality
and there is power in our growing numbers and flowering consciousness . . .

Chickadees sing cheerful songs of Truth . . .
May their energy elevate a personal resurrection burning brighter light in our souls
through passionate expression of Christ Consciousness within and without

Their black caps symbolizes intellect and higher level thinking . . .

We are a diversified and unified portfolio here on Earth
Let us welcome abundance to the possibility of equal access to resources
Divergent expressions of Great Spirit is who we really are

Remember the conflict of duality is healed through
the lens of our upper chakras

When we look through a lens of equality
We honor and respect each other’s diversity in unity

Donald Trump is a reflection of a dirty rear view mirror
that our lower chakras reveal to us as informants

Don’t buy into marketed commercial that sells
the jingle that projects a white privileged-centric
“we’re going make America great again”

That’s just code for demonizing Muslims, Arabs, Immigrants, the poor, oppressed
and other outsiders that don’t fit the mold of the opulent minority

This Aquarian land was made for you and me!

On the surface, energies are intensifying . . .
Suicide bombs have gone off and innocent people are dying
There is tragedy in the air!

Time for the Billionaire class to pay their fair share
Instead of greedily concentrating more wealth
to those that already have more than enough

But on a deeper level, we are moving into blossoming new beginnings . . .

Nature is leveling the playing field

Violence is waking us up

Bernie Sanders is part of a movement in alignment with a
forthcoming Aquarian Age

Contrary to what the corporate media wants you to believe,
he is an electable candidate . . .

We can stop the violence of voting for the lesser of two evils
and against our own best interests . . .

Remember that change, like the seasons is a process . . .
It is more about an unfolding transition than a fixed time and space

May Chickadee elevate our spirits to rise above and get off the couch
Let us free ourselves from the mental slavery of business as usual politics

The time is now for new economies built on a foundations of authenticity and trust
Clean love and clean care is renewable energy for all to share

Please envision with me as smooth of a transition as possible into new times . . .

See you up the trails,

Ari

Coming down from last week’s Full Beaver Moon and industrious productivity –
Perhaps leaves a feeling of energetic loss right about now

So many changes on our planet today
As one world dies another is being born

Might as well let the energy of Deer gently guide us through
these transformative transitions to feel safe in this unknown darkness

Look back at the time of Buddha for a moment . . .

Did he beat up on himself for any mistakes he might have made
after his legendary first teaching among deer in a park?

Meditation on Deer heightens sensitivity to the key of inner peace
Nature inspires us to unplug from emotional entanglements with life’s circumstances

Turn off the seductive technological buzz of what’s wrong in the world for a spell
And get outside and play and connect with the natural environment around you

Breathe in a deer’s gentle gaze after taking a cool drink from a crystalline stream
Then breathe out any negative energies that need to leave your being

Remember when our ancestors ventured out on spiritual hunts into the wild
where they followed Deer and were lured to mysterious adventures

Back then, there was an ancient wisdom in the power in letting go

What are you thankful for and what do you need to release and let go of?

Time to hear the crackle of conversational boundaries with others
and sit with that in discernment from your own inner thoughts and perceptions

After all, other people’s opinions really are not my business
and if I listen to their attached emotions then I will likely feel less lonely –
because I will realize that I am a part of a domestic partnership of shared humanity

Imagine all of us building a New Earth together by pouring a
practical foundation of empathy, gentleness or compassion for one another

Onward up the trails,

Ari

Seal guides us into the spiritual waters of imagination
Its energies awaken artistic expression and creative power

We are submerged in a deep-sea of creative and artistic expression
On this forthcoming New Moon in Leo

But if we don’t nurture the creative flow
We don’t have any place else to go . . .
Other than the trivial pursuit of anxiety

It need not drown your Lion’s pride

Thinking outside the box . . .
Tune into the realm of possibilities . . .

Sometimes, you just have to make the jump –
Trust that a safety net will catch you

Let the chips to fall where they may

Swimming into the depths of the ocean
Symbolizes our transition into a New Age

In this mad world . . .
“We’re never gonna survive unless we get a little crazy”

But keep in mind the definition of insanity
is to keep doing the same thing over and over . . .

And expecting different results

Balance between yin and yang happens again
On Fall Equinox come September

Here in the Northern hemisphere

Our clocks are turning “yinward”
The dark night of our inner worlds rises again

In the Southern Hemisphere
Balance happens on Spring Equinox

On the opposite side of the same coin
Where extroverted Yang will gain momentum

See you further on up the trails,

Ari

Raccoon cleverly guides us into a powerful enterprise of spiritual understanding –
All the necessary resources are available to us

A fragrant Flower Full Moon
Awakens our senses to the Buddha’s blossoming light of compassion
Shining onto our collective consciousness

“Fair isn’t that everyone gets what they want . . .
Fair is that everyone gets what they need.”

Do you believe in Divine Will –
that the Universe will provide us with everything we need?

In a more equitable, fair and just rebirthing New Earth . . .

This truth of abundance will become more self-evident!

There is no need to greedily concentrate global resources into the top 1%
Or by wearing a concealed criminal mask underneath a white or blue-collar –
Behind closed doors or out on the street

“Don’t believe the hype!”

Is Raccoon prompting you to get organized or mask your objectives?

Like humans, raccoons are highly adaptable creatures –
We need to access this inner resource during our transition into a New Age

Raccoon’s mask is symbolic of the magic of transformation . . .
Leaving behind who you once were,
while branching out into a budding new identity –
Spring forth and cross over into new dimensions

Faith, trust and a meditative heart
Will open you up to an infinite field of solutions –
Know that the resources you need are on their way

There is no need to hoard or plunder our home planet Earth’s resources anymore
We all win when we treat Her and one another with dignity and respect

Raccoons are natural martial artists
“Be a defensive driver in Life.”
Breathe in the calm in the eye of the storm . . .

Are you able to harmonize with your conflict?
Do you hear the attached emotions within your self or
from that pesky other person that is triggering you?

Are you being agile enough to make friends with inner peace –
Instead of externally demonizing another person, place or thing?

Try not to become seduced by making up sensational stories
about how you have been wronged or persecuted by others
Or by playing the blame game or beating up on yourself or someone else

Raccoon can guide you into finding a peaceful way
toward greater empathy, compassion and understanding
for yourself and your relationships

Given that we are all connected –
Try to see yourself in all that you encounter . . .
Especially when hiding behind their more distressing disguises

What aspect of yourself is masked behind darkness –
Just waiting to walk out of the shadows and jump into the sunlight?

See you further on up the trails,

Ari
