Feminine energy slowly spins it’s web with Spider rising
Isn’t it tricky not to get tangled up in shady dark edges?

Symbolic of Grandmother Moon, may we be inspired by Spider
to weave new program designs into our dying old paradigm . . .

This reflects correspondence with a forthcoming New Moon
Time for new solutions and novel ways of looking at beginnings

Walking in balance within the center of a circle . . .
Awakens a paradoxical spiritual and practical challenge and opportunity

Like the tracks left in Buddha’s wake . . .
There is a Middle Way!

A Middle Way, in the current American general election looks like
a write-in vote , voting for a third-party candidate, or not at all

Instead of following the commercial that tells you to vote
for the opposite sides of the same coin based on fear-based incentives

Buying into the lesser of two evils only strengthens
the grip that Big Money and the Military Industrial Complex
has on your mind-set

Remember that you have a choice to stay on the path without getting too swayed
by the seductive pull of life’s tension of opposites

See how polarity consciousness plays out by pushing you to
think, feel and behave in a way that
echoes the dominant voices that the corporate media wants you to buy into

Try not to chase your thoughts and react emotionally to those thoughts
in a extroverted trigger happy way with others . . .

What would it be like for you to stand in the empathic shoes
of your so-called competition or adversary?

We nurture creativity by paradoxically staying grounded in Infinity
Dream weaving into the material reality should not be
without entertaining unintended consequences . . .

If you are wearing a predatory mask,
isn’t it obvious that you might not have the stomach
for empathizing with your victims?

Just chew on that for a moment . . .
Isn’t that a mouthful?

Action-oriented Antelope is an ancestral embodiment –
Beyond a modern world Nike commercial . . .
Revealing a deep spiritual message to Just Do It.

Symbolic of mental speed and adaptability of mind.
Awakening to a Higher Purpose –
linked in to Third Eye and Crown Chakra communication channels.

While clearly keeping our wits about us.

Inner knowing facilitates adaptability –
when sailing the seas of Climate Change.

Do you need to insulate yourself or come out of hiding?

What is rising to the surface in your life?

Increased psychic vision for prediction – clairvoyance.
Forethought is useful for psychically sniffing out situations.

Nurturing organic new opportunities –
quenching thirst with minimal resources at our disposal.

Our time on planet earth is sacred but limited.
Becoming aware of our own mortality need not be a death sentence.

You are the power of now.

Remember we shall overcome when set-backs and roadblocks get in our way!

Picture a tree to center yourself –
Rooted in earth . . . Conduit to cosmos.
Staying grounded and high-minded with confidence and security.

Full Moon nudges us to relax our moods and emotions,
while getting down to business.
We can become smooth sailing and whistling while we’re working.

Adaptability is necessary when facing variable fronts . . .
Perhaps viewing yourself unfolding during a social situation
by mentally hitting rewind, fast forward or hitting the
pause button while galloping gracefully through the game of life.

Meditation on Antelope brings in energetic footprints
In alignment with shifting our mind-sets to open up to
Divergent ways of looking on our horizon.

Merely a few more strides down yonder . . .
Autumn Equinox breathes in balanced footsteps of light and dark.
And then masculine wanes, while feminine power gains momentum.

When we remember Turtle . . .
We are becoming Mother Earth.
There is no separation in Unity.
But we celebrate our diversity.

Her ancient shell is soulful protection –
for weathering Climate Change.

While embodying reciprocity in our harmonic communion with our Mother –
We are giving back our shared blessings to Her as She gives it up to us.
(In our New Earth, this is what a true free market exchange looks like.)

Do you need to retreat into your shell to honor your feelings for a spell?
Do you need to give a warning snap to those that have stoked your embers?

Meditation on Turtle’s medicinal energy lays eggs of grounding creativity . . .
In working with elemental forces of Water and Earth –
We are harmonizing with our environment.

The Empire has programmed us to push the river and swim upstream . . .
Turtle inspires us to gently pass on forceful enticements with care.
Do you remember the story of the Tortoise and the Hare?

Patiently pacing ourselves in alignment with Nature’s cyclical patterns –
Following Her changing tides with a waning Full Moon.
Subtle hints of an Autumnal Equinox . . .
Eclipsing us on a not-so-distant horizon.

While manifesting our goals –
Why not consider powerfully arriving rather than forcefully striving?

Bury your thoughts in the sand and allow the sunlight to do its business.
With Turtle, we welcome abundance into our lives.

The shroud of the Empire lurks within and without.
But inner peace still lies waiting beneath the dark n’ stormy surface . . .
Let go of “things and thoughts that get in the way of realizing
your true nature and best self.”

Allowing folks we care about to evoke our better angels
Without demonizing the devil we know.

Giving ourselves permission to receive energizes us to give.
Accepting love from others opens up energetic connections.
Feeding our hearts for Celestine soul amplification . . .

Co-creating space-time to reset our internal gauges to
Shift our attitudinal gears.
Revealing pleasantly surprising changes in latitude . . .

We are all dealt a deck of cards.
It’s what we do with the deck that makes it magical.

As adults, we have the opportunity and challenge –
To look at our outer world through . . .
The wonderful eyes of a child again –
With a mindful position of curiosity and empathy.

Fixed ideas are roadblocks to novelty . . .
Surrendering to universal flow is true freedom . . .

Making friends with our whimsical and intuitive selves . . .
Balancing our heads and our hearts in one rhythmical drum beat . . .

Taking a leap of faith requires the courage to
Let go of our systemic control issues . . .

Set a daily ritual of harmonic intention.
Create an organic psychic energy field of solitude.
When feeling introverted in extroverted situations
To feel security within our private selves . . .

Cumulative effect of “conscientiousness of our gifts”
Empowers us to be good stewards.
Breathe in blue skies (life) and breathe out gray skies (death).
And indulge in your daydreams for a short spell . . .
Return to ground control by picturing yourself as a
Wise Old Tree with strong roots growing deeps within Gaia . . .

Classroom Mothership Earth is our teacher and we are Her students here to learn.
What a pain in the Yin . . .

Slavery was justified as good business, while making us sick!
With food production chain, we are still enslaved with dirty planetary maladies.
Justifying the unjustifiable by parroting a “business as usual” mantra

Feed your soul a daily portion of self-care . . .
Feng Shui your home and work space.

Now that is good business practice.

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.

Bees embody busyness and symbolize being industrious, concentration, activity, group communication and connection with family and social networks. Their energy forecasts busy times ahead. Bees are productive members of our worldly society and make honey, the elixir of Life. Drinking in their energy reminds us that Life is sweet, as Bees represents wealth, prosperity, and hard work paying off. When we see bees, we might “bee” prompted to organize and structure our outer and inner worlds. Their spirited teachings also reflect our need to live for our shared collective consciousness.

In our developing World, Bees inspire an awareness of cooperation and competition in our work and interactions with one another. Bees communicate that good business practice means “one worker, one vote in a competitive, profitable enterprise. But the profits don’t go to the top, they go to every person that has a stake in the enterprise. So you have everybody invested in the company, everybody wants it to succeed. If it operates in this matter, you don’t have bitter labor fights, you don’t have companies going under, employees losing their jobs and executives becoming millionaires. Instead, you have a lot of people making a fair salary.” I hardly think any Bees would be sued for being effective whistleblowers for the sake of the betterment of the hive. As humanity wakes up to win-win interactions in our work and play, we open up to welcoming abundance in our affairs. We all have gifts to share in our contribution to a more fair and just society.

Bees also symbolize reincarnation. Being present in this area facilitates communication with the dirge of our old selves, reminding us of who we used to be. Sometimes, it can be hard to let go of who we once were. “That’s just the way we’ve always done it.” We might find ourselves neatly packaged in a box of how others think we should be or how we see ourselves. But learning to trust and let go of the process of our unfolding is good medicine. Is your soul asking you to fly into new zones? Are you producing enough or enjoying the fruits of your labor? Are you so busy that you never have time to do what you want? Are you pregnant with an idea, fertile with your creativity and/or need to examine your own sexuality or attitudes toward sex in general? “Speaking words of wisdom” it’s OK to “let it be”.

“If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and drink”. It is good to remember that the Kingdom of Heaven is within our Being. Sometimes, picturing a waterfall or even going for a swim cools us down to see the forest for the trees. This also has a cleansing effect on our mind-body-spirit so that we do not get too submerged. Consuming the energies of Bee and the New Moon on Monday can help you stay connected and in alignment with your soul’s sacred journey while on Earth. Trusting that the Universe will provide and unfold as it needs to helps us drink in Life and quench our thirst for action and results. Sometimes it is challenging to sit with tension that arises from our expectations that we will enjoy the fruits of our labor and see the results of that hard work. Being consumed with anxiety can block us from allowing ourselves to stop and smell the roses. Please give yourself permission to do whatever you can to “be here be now” in your travels.
