Posts Tagged ‘Chinese New Year’

A Western New Year approaches, as does a
Full Wolf Moon at the beginning of January . . .

Let us heed the echoes of Wolf’s heartbeat!
Tracking into February, comes the arrival of the Chinese/Lunar New Year of the Dog

Meditate on the spiritual energy of Dog to walk into new energies –
that awakens pathways into a deeper compassion for all of humanity,
in spite of our human shortcomings that bubble up in our wake . . .

Consider taking your repeated exposure to your:

hate-oriented images of Donald Trump, a miserly Wall Street,
reptilian minded friends in Congress
(that metaphorically represent an obsessive, manipulative, controlling, and
down right abusive dying old world power structure that pits us against one another)

And replacing them instead:

With new pictures of Love and Light!
At the end of the day, that’s how we disarm the Beast as within, so without

Let us heed the call to scale back the toxicity of a dog eat dog mentality,
and seductive militaristic fantasies of a global fascist state

Not Israel, nor any other single nation-state should be designated as an
offshore base or be given preferential capital for global supremacy!

We should all be getting the message of oneness,
and equal opportunity in a multi-polar new world!

Everyone’s intrinsic talents should be
cultivated and developed to their fullest potential

But not at the expense of stepping on someone else who falls through the cracks!

Violence, and security systems that build walls that prohibit freedom of speech,
Should be examined with a reflective, and heartfelt intellectual examination . . .

Our world, and one’s personal spiritual evolution depends on
self-reflection, and forward free-thinking!

May this New Year bring you much wellness, inner joy, following your bliss,
a relaxation on ego-driven emotional reactions, and a forgiving attitude
to inspire our planet, and universal consciousness!

See you further up the trails,

Cheers to welcoming a New Year!
Enter in 2017 – on the Gregorian calendar at least

Seal breathes in fresh air into the dark chambers
of the cold, dark waters of our collective soul . . .

Lucid dreaming awakens primal creative elemental forces
symbolic of water and feminine, yin energies

A Full Wolf Moon is coming soon . . .
Before long, it will become the Chinese New Year of the Rooster . . .

What does your inner wolf and rooster need to make friends with right now?

Part of anxiety is blocked energy that wants to express itself through creativity
Another piece is letting go of judgments that charge the ego’s grip

But you can listen to the voices of anxiety with an open and passive attitude

The chattering monkey can become theater, and you can find humor in
the attack of the nervous woodland creature energies

In the Northern hemisphere, our days are getting a little brighter
until light and dark are equal again on Spring Equinox in March

And then light will peak on the Summer solstice in June . . .
Festivities are alive, and energies are expressed outward in community

At that point, masculine energies are dancing vibrantly again, while
falling back in equal rhythmic alignment with feminine on Autumn equinox in September . . .

Here in America, are we not still fighting and struggling to let go of
issues related to taxation with(out) representation?

This marks for a nation of millions peppered with blue states versus red states . . .

Such a Uzi scenario of marketed, mixed martial arts messages and
polarizing allegiances, merely reflecting opposite sides of the same coin

Inherent in colonial roots, slave-trade politics is unearthed . . .

A developmentally delayed electoral college swaddled in its
comfort zone is apparently secured

Does that formidable system not still seek to divide and conquer
the privileged few from the overwhelming majority?

Does the market not take stock in what supports the greater good?

How will our new president-elect
Donald Trump handle the challenges faced by the herd?

Tis the season for outside the box thinking to awaken creative,
new ways of working together

Mercury in Retrograde helps us revisit old connections . . .

Hopefully an opportunity for us to rework past tense dysfunctions
into healthy novel scripts

Use the energies of the New Year to let go of your projections . . .

May we allow ourselves to focus on our close encounters
with the many blessings flying around our energies fields!

Yes, Winter is in full swing . . .

But Groundhog Day is right around the corner with a friendly reminder that
the seeds underground will be starting to think about waking up then

See you further on up the trails,

Picture a Wolf as you tune in to the energies of a Full Moon arriving on Saturday . . .

May we remember our mystical connections to the Moon –
Awakening perceptual hidden knowledge and wisdom

Beaming in the light of consciousness in our everyday realities . . .

Let Wolf invoke your own wise teacher within
to help you find your own path to follow

Wolf’s tracks reveal wise spiritual guidance counsel along the trails
Encouraging us to allow our diverse hearts to beat together in oneness

Bring back balance to our energetic pack connection to one another . . .
May we harmonize with our diversity in unity

Mercury in Retrograde spins yesteryear recordings of a time
when hungry wolf packs howled outside old tribal villages

How do your past experiences play out in your present reality?
What do you have to learn about yourself from past relationships and experiences?

Sometimes we are revisited by meaningful connections in our consciousness
through dreams, visions or even physical contact

Winter is a natural time of year to open-up our hearts to feel sadness
It is healthy for us to grieve the passing
of our loved ones who are no longer physically with us in our lives

Perhaps a past relationship or a change in your identity has resurfaced for you

It is good to process these feelings about past relationships
that have faded away in time and space

May we resurrect their imprint that lives on inside our souls . . .

Training ourselves to let go of our fear of loss and shed old scar tissue
Reveals the depth and power of love

As humans, we will always have attachments
Because we are entangled with form

But as spiritual beings having human experiences
We can soften our attachments by relaxing the ties that bind

Call on your guides, like Archangel Michael to help you with this process
Or get some good therapy to help you along

Gone are the days of being a lone wolf

Contemplate your politics of anger for a moment . . .

Donald Trump personifies hiding behind the surface of this primal emotion
Just observe how he feels justified in building a Berlin Wall around his heart
and greedily buys into a segregationist us and them mentality –
Capturing those sentiments shared by the Fear Factor in others

But Bernie Sanders strikes a chord of an Aquarian we consciousness that resonates
with the collective will of the people in much the same way
as Civil Rights activists transformed their anger into positive and constructive action
Like him, many of us understands that we are all in this together

A more fair and just society belongs to all of us . . .
Equality means that the voices of black folks, GLBTQ people
and others that are marginalized
are just as important for us to hear as humans that sit in privilege

Economic strangulation suffocates all of us, whether realized or not

Are you feeding your inner wise wolf or the angry wolf?

Hope to see you onward up the trails,

Ari

Hawk and a New Moon flew past us at the tail end of last week
Loon now chimes into our Dreamtime . . .

Mercury is in Retrograde again –

Offering a deepening appreciation for increased
communication breakdowns in logical and left-brain systems

Swimming with Loon guides us into intuitive streams of thought and
powerful currents of feminine waters, creative contemplations and meditations

Powers of lucid dreaming are stronger now

Groundhog Day and a Chinese New Year of the Monkey
Arrive in early February

By then, underground seeds of spring will begin subtly stirring

But for now, Loon guides us further into the waters of our souls
Singing resurface songs to free our submerged selves

Reawakening old wishes and dreams hoping to come up for air
Perhaps their energies have been caught up in underwater stagnation

Imaginative Dreamtime wants to illuminate their slumbering darkness

The old ways of the status quo are outdated roadmaps for new business

Death is in the air this time of year in the Northern hemisphere . . .

But death without dying through lucid dreaming is a real possibility
So there is no need to be spooked by the resurrection of old ghosts

Yes, our bodies will expire . . .
But they are vessels that require nurturing for safe travels
Might as well balance work, play, rest and diet is spiritual health for our souls

The death of Winter evokes a soul facing its ultimate mortality
Part of our work here is to soften our human attachments

May we relax our fear of aging, loss and dying!

See you onward up the trails,

The magical energy of a New Year and New Moon swoop in this week –
In the wake of the visionary air of Hawk

Hawk’s energetic connections to Mercury are good reminders to not take
Retrograde Twilight Zone mind tricks too seriously

Remember the Oz like smokescreen screenplay we are all enticed to buy into
is an illusion with a reality to that perception . . .

Yes, the corporate media serves up more bad news for us to gobble up
and try to keep us afraid of our own dark sides and shades of grey

There is so much tragedy for our eyes to see

But a New hope for this Chinese year of the Monkey is a healthy opportunity
to rise to the challenge of tuning down the internalized background noises of
surround sound chatter and underlying anxieties

Or just the freedom to not pick up the incessant and repetitive mental tapes
that dominate internal voice mail systems

Hawk helps us become aware of the obvious signs and synchronicities
that might have been hiding in the shadows

Meditation on Temperance reveals
Hawk’s assertion to pay attention!

See with the wide open angle gaze of Hawk
Look at the big picture without getting lost in the details

Take responsibility instead of blaming others

Be with the Grandfatherly sunlight of heartfelt connections . . .
Without forgetting the gravitational pull of our Mother Earth

See you onward up the trails,

After Last Week’s Christmas Full Cold Moon fades into the twilight
Sunlight rises in our Divine ascent through less darker nights

But there will be plenty of darkness to tunnel through before
Groundhog Day resurfaces again in early February

We move further toward sensual equanimity on the Spring Equinox in March

Until then, our free-spirited feet respect the
gravitational pull of our emotional earthbound connections

Eagle inspires our souls to be high-minded and connect with deep roots

Soon 2015 will give birth to a Chinese New Year of the Monkey
Always a good time to relax attachment to form

Silence the chattering monkey mind with an inquisitive
and introverted personal reading

What places inside of yourself needs re-visitation and refinement?

Communication with Higher Self vistas
Fly into our Being in spite of anticipatory cold weather fronts

Be a beacon of light when walking with shadows . . .

Our light and dark sides are not warring enemies
May Eagle’s powerful medicine heal any polarity

Become the seeds that you have planted in the year ahead
Be like water and mindful of your head

May heartfelt intimacy awaken . . .
beneath emotionally triggered eruptions

What parts of your soul want to be seen and be heard?

Onward up the trails,

Ari

A waning Full Moon and Western New year passed us by last week
Later on next month we come into a Chinese-Lunar New Year
Streaming in undercurrent tides of Spring energetics

From dusk til dawn . . .
Loon guides us further into the oceanic depths of the Dreamtime
Calling out to us to reawaken hidden selves

Do your underwater dreams want to come up for air?

A cold winter blanket makes for warm self-reflection

Old hopes, wishes and dreams are wanting to express themselves right now
Submerged within the depths of our sea of consciousness

Are you allowing your imagination and dream life to work for you?

Venture across the outer waters of your soul’s terrain
Into mysterious dark places wanting to see the light of day

Do you need to get our of your box and
become more comfortable in different environments?

Silent lucidity changes the trajectory of our dreams
Shifting our gears into unexplored trails of our unfolding life maps

Are you having a hard time distinguishing fantasy from reality?

Cultivating a sacred space breathes stability into
our free-spirited fluctuations in feelings and imaginative possibilities

Home is where the Heart is
But not without minding your head

Do you ever feel like your life is a re-run of a reality show gone mad?

Take a step-back and become a spiritual watcher
noticing how our thoughts and feelings connect
the dots of our repetitive behavioral patterns

Are we allowing ourselves to grieve those close to us that have passed on recently?
Feeling the funeral procession and ring tone of feelings that
reverberate in ghostly acoustics

Facing our own mortality can be terrifying . . .
Begging questions regarding what happens to us when we die?

In the death of Winter, unexpected losses leave behind
dark and stormy mixed emotions
When faced authentically, they add to the complexities of living

And celebrate their time alive we will
While tuned in to a spirited living drumbeat in your soul today

Listening to our bodies reveals balancing work, play, rest and diet

Without meditation as a critical part of our daily routine
It will become harder to sit with what is now
and moving onward along the trails ahead
Distractions to following our soul path will become more challenging

A slow and low tempo heeds
Universal promptings that are designed to return our energy to ourselves

See you further on up the trails,

Ari
