Now more than ever may we become quiet enough to heed Turtle’s wisdom
Remember that stillness speaks through the sound of silence

These are the days of diving into the depth of our inner seas
Because we are all globally swimming in perceived divisive waters of polarity

But underground forces know there is oneness and unity

Turtle is a good reminder to be patient, gentle and kind to yourself
during this process of evolutionary growth that is not without its growing pains

Light and Dark energies will be on equal ground on Spring Equinox
Tis the season to heal polarity in the collective waters of consciousness

In this Chinese Year of the Monkey . . .

Might as well use the rising intensities to invigorate your committment
to relax your own chattering monkey mind

A hurry up offense is a popular way to live on Earth today . . .

Batter up, strike out and who’s on first?
The thoughts and emotional reactions to those thoughts can be incessant

The stories and monkey mind chatter can come on fast and furious
like a perfect storm even

Envisioning a light-hearted, playful and even childlike sense of humor of Self
enhances the ability to see the interplay
between wisdom and folly as comedic theater

Are you hating that person with political beliefs divergent from yours?
It’s just a reflection of leaving behind old shores,
while moving into new lands of thought

Please consider heeding the experiential wisdom of Ram Das
to just learn to love everybody and everything

The wind and the rain have a way of washing things out
Cleaning up with consistent exercise and eating energetically grounding foods
moves things around with the good stink of healthy fertilizer for those in our wake

Mother Earth’s ancient wisdom is to stay low like the depths of the ocean

Is it time to retreat into a protective bubble and shield yourself
from the worries of the world of 10,000 things?

Or do you need to come out of your shell and socialize more frequently?

The tides of climate change are shifting and gaining momentum . . .

Like the transition from Winter to Spring

The weather underground is budding with new growth
As your buried ideas surface from their dark Winter’s slumber

They are waking up and wanting to spring into action
In the sunlight of Spring Eclipse season

Keep your wits by recognizing that order and chaos are dancing together
Just as light and dark forces moving with one another

We are here to sit with tension of opposites
and make friends with the conflict of duality

Do what ever you can to slow down and observe the moments as they spring up
Try to do this without judgment and learn to be with what is

Meditation on Turtle will help you cultivate energy gradually like the power of water

A Full Worm Moon arrives on Hump Day after Spring Equinox

Beetles symbolize the power of solar energies and new life
If you have been waiting for the sun . . .
Then now is the time to let in the sunshine of warmer days and outward growth

You only have to wait ’till Tuesday to hear voices carry
The sound of musical new beginnings accompanying this New Moon

Next week, we will reach Father Sun’s peak
A fire on the mountain that shines his lightest day of the year
On the Summer Solstice
In the Northern Hemisphere

Beetles represent metamorphosis
Like seasons changing . . .
Beetles transform from eggs to grubs to winged creatures

Nature show us that everything is transient
There is security in plans
They give us a sense of order

But chaos must also flow in the river of Life
Awakening the element of surprise

Instead of getting bugged by the chronic irritability of disappointments –
Especially when a situation doesn’t meet your expectations
Try to receive what arrives in your wake with an open attitude of detachment

It feels empowering to not take things so personally

Like oceans bowing to the streams flowing yin
We empathize with true feminine power

Saying good-bye to our old selves is just acknowledging that change is part of Life
As is being born again into a new self
Or taking a deep breath after yawning an exhalation of dead air

Just a gentle nudging to wake up instead of going back to sleep

This process is akin to resurrection and reincarnation . . .
In our soul development

But you don’t have to physically die to ascend in your skin
We are an accumulation of our choices
Past lives and future selves occur in this lifetime

Do you need to let go of the past?

Karmic Law or cause and effect does not discriminate against
A “you only live once” mindset

Our actions have consequences – some unintended
and still others lie hidden in the shade

We are not talking about punishment or eternal damnation
But it doesn not mean we throw caution to the wind

Might we allow the sunlight to illuminate the shadows?

Do you need to shine new sunlight into your life?

Meditation on Lady Bugs awaken nurturing energies of
Practicality and healthy personal space protection . . .

Synchronizing with spring and summer’s outward growth

Temperatures are heating up . . .

What hidden waterfalls of knowledge, magic and soul-searching spiritual messages
Are wanting to cool down the fiery furnace of your soul?

See you further on up the trails,

Crows sit all along the watchtower in large flocks of communal roosts
A symbolically predictive omen for changing weather patterns

Further movement into a New Earth previews trailers of clearer forecasts
Revealing that we are all One

Connecting the loose threads of our multidimensional heartstrings
Striking a chord that we are all in this together

Meditation on the Law of Impermanence
Reminds us that everything is transitory and ephemeral

Is it a time for you to begin a new course of study?

Fireside storytelling awakens the flames of shared human experiences
Breathing in Samhain marks mid-point between Autumn air and Winter Solstice
A good time to honor our ancestors and exhale Karmic wounds of yesterday

Is a message on its way for you to receive?

Reflecting Nature’s intentional expression for letting-go
And feeling thankful for our vulnerability

Should you be more alert and wary?

Spiritual laws transcend physical laws
By bending the ways of our material world

Watching our shadow-side teachings remind us to attend to the nuts and bolts
Cultivating structure, consistency and predictability in our daily walk facilitates
Coming down into our souls from our high perches of observation

Try not to sweat the small stuff of nervous woodland creature energies

Creation is born out of the feminine womb of life
Master magicians see illusionary veils cloaking other realms
Mystical vibrations of co-creativity are woven into everyday life

Are you noticing everyday opportunities to make magic in your daily routine?

When sitting still in the driver’s seat
We keep our eyes on the horizon and in rearview mirror
Watching the wheels balancing in the eternal now

Picture a tree soaking in sun
Rooted deeply into our Earth’s dark soil
Together we stand in alignment with the elements

Shapeshifting ourselves into transformative inner peace
Shining intrinsic Divine Light onto our darker edges

Leave it to Full Beaver Moon this week to cue us to “set traps”
Before our internal swamps become frozen
Turning our clocks back yinward
In preparation for the cold by blanketing our souls with “warm winter furs”

Remembering when our soul power breathes effectively through our human voice
We are honoring every moment as a past teacher,
the living present as our creation
and the future as our inspiration

See you further on up the trails,

Ari
