The Autumn Equinox has eclipsed us, and our days are getting darker.

From a spiritual perspective, the veils between the material and
spirit realms are thinning, and intersecting in more obvious ways.

Energetically, it’s a good time to turn yinward, and
be more mindful of darker, less welcome emotions.

And it isn’t getting any easier to live on the planet today,
with the intensifying labor pains.

But there is so much help from the spirit realm, if
only we remember to ask.

Now more than ever, it is the perfect time to ask,
so that you can receive the spiritual guidance you need.

Have you noticed your perceptual experiences heightened in this way?

Our ancestors are speaking to us more loudly and clearly
at this time of year, often through Nature.

Picture a Spider to step into Infinity,
and connect with your Higher Self to script
your New Story in this New Age and Paradigm.

Otherwise, you will just be eating Crow
if you let your ego take over, and miss out
on the magic and mystery of the unfolding “yellow brick road.”

Be like a Cat, and know that you can see in the dark,
and hear the sounds of Spirit guiding your Soul
through Its transformational energy of Bat.

The Samhain is on its way, the approximate mid-point between
the Fall Equinox and Winter Solstice.

Today, we have Halloween, and other cultural celebrations like
All Saints Day, All Souls Day, and the Day of the Dead.

Interestingly, Mercury goes in Retrograde then, which will
magnify Twilight Zone perceptions, and disrupt left brain
systems of thought.

But if you align with Bear, then you will access the dreamtime,
and make the shift into your intuitive faculties –
so long as you allow for faith and trust to become your waking reality.

Not coincidentally, daylight savings time ends on the Sunday after
all those dates.

In the Southern Hemisphere, movement through the
Imbolc/Spring Equinox/Summer Solstice are happening,
and their days are getting longer.

A Full Hunter Moon is on its way gracing us with
Her presence on Sunday, October 13th.

Meditate on the thrill of the hunt, or how we move through this
Full Moon cycle, rather than what we gain or lose from the hunt itself.

Like Lao Tzu would say, “nature is the best physician.”

But it’s always good to get outside, and unplug.

It will be more important to do that with the arrival of the
Astrological Winter Eclipse Season coming in December.

Perhaps if you have been sleepwalking through life in a hypnotic trance,
your eyes will open up to 20/20 vision in the New Chinese Year of the Rat.

A Full Moon arrives in our consciousness today.

As always, Father Sky reveals orderly cycles in the heavens,
in much the same way as Mother Earth does with seasons down here on Earth.

But like the seasons, we are not without
changing latitudes and attitudes.

Like when a Deer begins to rut this time of year . . .

To wit:

Or whether or not a manic stock market appreciates
how many points a buck has or the alchemy behind the
nightmare that we see playing out on the surface of the planet.

Even with the advanced intellect behind algorithms and
fancy nanotechnological advances:

You can’t forget about human rights, and the general welfare of all sentient beings.

But you already know not to demonize demons.

Remember that Deer symbolizes the spiritual power to dissolve the monster of fear.

This happens via a strong gentle gaze that awakens
the mythical quest that invites us to connect with Great Spirit.

The sacred union of Snake reflects transformation.

We are all vulnerable to the poisionous toxins in our world.
But remember that in the venom, there is a healing tonic.

Even if you have fallen off the wagon wheel, you
can still get back the eye the tiger with the magic of Crow.

Try not to become seduced by your fears – regardless of how real
you believe them to be, or proof or evidence you have to back them up
and make convincing arguments accordingly.

Heaven and Earth are meant to be in a collaborative relationship.

They are competing together for mutual-aid, rather than against one another.

You can’t have the yang of brotherly order,
without the yin of sisterly chaos.

Nature’s theater of cosmic sibling rivalry is shown
on the screen of a silver lining.

When I think about our ancestors that named this Full Moon after a male deer,
I can appreciate the point that predators and prey, like the yin and the yang
show us the cycle of life.

We humans did not weave the web of life –
we are strands in the web, and our actions have a ripple effect on
the multidimensionality of our experiences.

Put that in your peace pipe and smoke it,
and drink it in your meditative tonic of healthy choice.

Is it a coincidence that our planet has been attracting more attention
from other dimensions since the splitting of the atom, and then the
decision to weaponize this technology?

The reason history tends to repeat itself is due to
the density of the habituated mind.

Destiny only exists when we are unconscious of it.

Isn’t it nice to wake up to a mindful awareness?

Traditions might be time-tested, but not without novelty
and creative outlets.

But if we can learn from the sweet and satisfying souldful dance step
of Grandfather Sun and Grandmother Moon, then we can deepen
our understanding of balancing ritual with sacred meaning.

Otherwise, we just become ensconced in our robotic doings.

We all need a sense of safety and security.

But not at the expense of sacrificing freedom and liberty.

Getting swayed too far in either direction leads to a chemical imbalance
and hard times on the self.

Be gentle on yourselves peeps.

A Full Hunter’s Moon waxes on in the week ahead . . .
It’s energetic crops yield sustenance through the forthcoming wintry storms ahead

Crow calls out to the primordial magic and mystery of
life’s everyday unscripted spiritual adventure

Falling leaves reflect a dying environmental analysis of
underground roots that are parched from dehydration

Breathe in and wet Her palette with creative energies
that are wanting to express themselves by releasing boxed in thought patterns

Feminine movement tunnels into the black gold of
intuitive, unexplored dark realms

Deep pockets infiltrate our collective political climate
Just look at the Donald and Hillary’s criminal relationship with the Federal Reserve

Are you convinced that your vote must come down to a crook or a bigot?

Movement into a New Age and Paradigm casts votes for
Universal pillars of Love and Truth over the lesser of two evils!

But responding versus reacting changes the trajectory of
our individual and collective experience with reality . . .

Time to shift into mindful, intrinsic revelations of
what lies beneath internal yin-bound trains of consciousness

We are leaving behind a dying Pisces Age of gurus, heroes and savior complexes –
While moving on up into a we are all in this together mantra . . .

See you further on up the trails,

Crows work together with watchful eyes
Their alert and wary energy symbolizes clear views of the horizon

They remind us that “today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday”

What messages are on their way for you to receive?

Time to recycle familiar infiltrated trash piles
to transform into renewal energy during a darkening moon

We are moving further away from Fall . . .
Days are fading into primordial darkness –
in a black like Crow kind of way

The Samhain marks mid-point between Autumn Equinox and Winter Solstice

Before too long –
The Winter Solstice will be here in the Northern Hemisphere
Our darkest day of the year before we begin to coax back the light

Seasons hold up mirrors revealing that
everything is transitory and ephemeral

In much the same way as our world is evolving . . .

Fossilized old world coins printed in a business as usual love story
Will crystallize into an egoless new world economy

Time to open your hearts to the idea of investing in loss
to cash in on win-win outcomes measured by the
exponential growth of getting what you no longer want

The time is now to honor the spirits of our ancestors
and let go of yesterday’s old wounds

May we give back the baggage that was handed down to us
and ask them to lighten their load by shedding dead skin
so they may walk in the light

Spirituality transcends physical laws
By bending the will of materialism

Peering into our shadow sides
Illuminates a pathway into our soul’s den to awaken creativity

Darker months give us the opportunity to see that
creation is born out of the feminine womb of life

Do you see the mystical and magical opportunities
for creativity in your daily routine?

See you further on up the trails,

“American people are the new Indians of the 21st Century.”
Privately squatted by the Empire’s Powers that Be
Profiting off the backs of workaholism is modern slavery.
Smells of imperial tyranny . . .

Service is a carrot of payment back in kind
Rabbit in me says lettuce hit rewind
May our souls carry a heavy burden of past incarnations?
Inspiration to rework our issues through gradual confrontational self-reflection
Loosens up our entanglement with form,
while lightening up our emotional reactions

We have the right to remain silent
To hear stillness speaking spiritually
Might we consider it culturally?
And yet singing songs of freedom vocally!

Honesty and gentleness in relationship
facilitates a mutual understanding
Allowing our inner voices to come outside and play
Giving birth to our creative power

Taking pleasure in our daily list clears space for awakened doings
Cleansing the doors of perception cultivates peace of mind
Being positive hits our internal reset buttons

We are all psychics – from empathic connections
To anticipating rush hour commutes
(and) taking alternative routes
Staying grounded while becoming aware that we aware
Sometimes the logical mind does not compute . . .

Making paradoxical friends with wanting more and having everything we need
Crow medicine shows us everyday “magic in the mundane”
Transmutes ordinary moments into extraordinary Polaroids
Weaving in creativity into our mental lists

Infusing perceptual shifts of spiritual energy
A ray of light shining on in our shared world of form
Recapture a little of the glory of
through the mind-set of a child
carrying a light-hearted air

You have a right to be serious and uptight
but that gravitational pull can be a downer
Especially in a hurried shower . . .

In our travels, remember our rituals and routines
in tote with items of power

Tell me Syngenta, Bayer, Monsanto and Donagrosciences . . .
How does a bee reach Nirvana with neonicotinoid-insecticides?

Two hawks fly by on Valentine’s Day
An embodied omen that spirited physical movement cultivates fluidity
Viewing new vistas during our Earth Walkabout
Pushing our edges and trimming our borders
Being an active participant in the Life’s theater

Gently letting anxiety and waning Full Moon pass with care
to Occupy an inner peace World’s Fair

See you further on down the trails,

Ari
