A Full Wolf Moon & New Year Of The Rabbit

The winds blew in Mercury in Retrograde into our inner skies

a few days after Christmas, as we say our goodbyes to 2022.

Consider this close encounter a vibrational landing & gift wrapped hallmark card

about shifting our mindful awareness from

left brain faculties into right brain pathways of thought.

Might as well have an open and passive attitude with any creative, zoning out tendencies

that are magnified by strange Twilight Zone perceptual realities.

Even though there could be big emotional tidings and ideas-

probably better not to act on them till more contemplative reflection

clears up around the Chinese Lunar New Year of the Rabbit on January 22nd.

What old parts of yourself are you ready to let go of to awaken your future self?

But before that, a Full Moon will happen on January 6th, 2023.

Who else feels tempted by fate more than usual during full moon cycles

or when Mercury’s in Retrograde?

This Full Moon goes by many names but it is known by our ancestry

as the Full Wolf Moon.

Traditional stories by the Indigenous people from the Dogon tribe in West Africa,

and ancient Egypt have reportedly revealed energetic connections to wolves,

as well as the star system called Sirius.

It’s no coincidence that dogs are still considered a best friend to humankind.

Many people today are waking up to their lineage connections or

soul energies incarnating here from planets other than earth.

This fits into the paradigm of past lives and reincarnation.

Waking up to our starseed orientations are part of the multidimensional nature

and an unfolding process of spiritual awakenings.

But remember that on some level,

we are all starseeds because we all have star dust living within our DNA.

Even Western Science affirms the theorized phenomenon of Genetic Memory,

where familial memories are passed down to us like baggage via encodings in our nucleic acid.

(Spiritual DNA is also important to us a spiritual beings having human experiences.)

Soul travel, lucid dreaming and meditation are all forms to play with during our interactions

and co-regulative connections with these energies that are wanting to communicate with us.

An interesting synchronicity to the energetic imprint of the Full Wolf Moon is the

connection to the brightest star in our night sky called Sirius, aka Alpha Canis Majoris,

or the “Celestial Wolf” according to Chinese astronomy.

Dogs make for loyal and protective spirit guides.

Wolves are pathways to

a systemic hybrid of complex interplay between

individualized freewill mixed with social democratic principals.

The spirit of Wolf reflects the Age of Aquarius,

where the individual blends their personal uniqueness with group consciousness.

In the shamanic traditions, journeying is a form of meditation.

One way to access spirit guides is through drumming,

which changes our brain waves, like meditation does.

May we leap and hop with Rabbit into the Faerie realm and other

magical adventures into rabbit holes of the underworld, middle or upper world.

Let us remember a callback to keep our feet on the ground and safely return to our hutch.

Alternate realities are adventurous places for our minds and souls to travel.

Staying grounded in this reality is just as important,

like the old spiritual mantra of walking with one foot in spirit, one foot in ground.

Soul travel is akin to dimensional bleeding.

Dawn & dusk reflect the in between times where the veil

between the spirit and physical realms are thinner.

Shadow building is when we call in our fears from our subconscious

into our conscious experiences.

Remember what we resist persists.

Are you contemplating starting a new project?

Could this be envisioning your new self?

Take care of yourselves everyone,

A New Moon In Capricorn & The Chinese Lunar New Year Of The Rabbit

On December 23, 2022, A New Moon in Capricorn adds to

the new energies of the forthcoming New Year of 2023

Keep in mind that the Moon based Chinese calendar new year will happen on January 22, 2023.

The energy of Capricorn might trigger a strong need for being useful to society.

Sometimes, it may lead us down a path of looking for justification in the outside world.

It can be enticing to underestimate what we want from ourselves and for ourselves.

Resentment can follow shyness when feeling ignored by others.

Rather than seeking approval from the outside, turn yin-ward and trust your inner values.

A gentle and kind inside-out approach will relax harmful self-doubts.

Working Capricorn in the positive awakens self-control.

Try not to get seduced by its shadow side by trying to control everything.

It will be the year of the Rabbit, according to Chinese Astrology.

Energetically, Rabbit is symbolic of good fortune and reflects the powers of the moon.

It will be a good year to develop your sensitivity and artistic expressions,

as well as ambition, fitness & virtue.

Rabbits are associated with sexuality and fertility.

There are many ways other than physically having sex or childbirth

to play with these experiences in our lives.

For example, you can wear different colors, play music and sing

as forms to explore your sensuality,

as well as give birth to a new creative endeavor as a way to flirt with the fertility of life.

Also, these are all healthy ways to reclaim

and nurture a healthy relationship with your inner child.

Truly, reality is multidimensional or quantum in nature.

Meditation helps access these realms as well as soften our attachments to them.

This writer has heard stories about the writer Lewis Carrol’s clinging to

alternate realities that he could no longer access after writing his classic,

Alice in Wonderland,

which was akin to a shamanic journey.

Similarly, Pink Floyd’s Sid Barrett reportedly heard celestial music in the dreamtime.

Sadly, it drove him mad because he couldn’t capture that sound in this realm.

It can take a long time to learn cause and effect, which is not without its consequences.

At the same time, we can imagine the possibilities beyond cause and effect and predictability.

As a spirit guide, we can leap and hop with Rabbit into the Faerie realm and

magical adventures into rabbit holes of the underworld, middle or upper world.

Let us remember a callback to keep our feet on the ground and safely return to our hutch.

Alternate realities are adventurous places for our minds and souls to travel.

Staying grounded in this reality is just as important,

like the old spiritual mantra of walking with one foot in spirit, one foot in ground.

Soul travel is akin to dimensional bleeding.

(See you on the dark side of the moon)

Dawn & dusk reflect the in between times where the veil

A Full Cold Moon, Winter Solstice and Looking Forward To A New Moon In Capricorn & Year Ahead After A Long December . . .

A Full Cold Moon arrives on December 7, 2022.

Like all full moons, this one goes by many names.

This name traces its roots to the Mohawk Indigenous Peoples.

Here in Maine, the Western Abenaki name is Winter Maker Moon.

Our ancestors recognized this Full Moon and Winter Solstice signpost as

the coldest and darkest timeframe of the year.

The Winter Solstice, arrives on December 21st,

and signals the darkest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere.

And then after that we begin to coax back the light.

It is a good time to venture yin-ward,

go into deeper meditation, introspection, contemplation, rest, sleep

and travel into your cave for inner exploration and self discovery.

Yin symbolizes the darker, more feminine energies, like the moon does.

The Blues doesn’t sing about sunshine and rainbows.

Darker emotions are a natural experiences- especially right now on the planet.

The old world, with its wars, dirty energy

and general shadowy conduct disorderly ways is a recipe for disaster.

Might as well surrender to what is and tend

to your inner garden in the seedlings of the present moment.

Rituals focusing on gratitude and letting go are good energy medicine.

In the Southern Hemisphere, it is the opposite.

It will be their Summer Solstice, where the light reaches its zenith,

and the amount of light in a day starts slowly waning thereafter.

Conversely, this is a time to be more of a social butterfly, festive

and outwardly expansive, as yang is more masculine, like the sun energetically.

On December 23, 2022, A New Moon in Capricorn adds to

the new energies of the forthcoming New Year of 2023

The energy of Capricorn might trigger a strong need for being useful to society.

Sometimes, it may lead us down a path of looking for justification in the outside world.

A gentle and kind inside-out approach will relax harmful self-doubts.

Working Capricorn in the positive awakens self-control.

Try not to get seduced by its shadow side by trying to control everything.

Between the Winter Solstice, New Moon and New Year’s Day,

there are lots of new energies in the air.

Keep in mind that the Moon based Chinese calendar new year will happen on January 22, 2023.

It will be the year of the Rabbit, according to Chinese Astrology.

More on that next time.

Take care of yourselves everyone,
