Cat’s are reminders of adolescence . . .
Their presence is curious, and can be difficult to anticipate

They are difficult to outwit, and nearly impossible to herd!

Creative feminine yin pounces mysterious
energetic wave pulsations, not without more natural disasters

And things heating up on the planet in general!
But in these dark times, we might as well awaken Cat’s capacity
to see well when the lights are out

Many people are feeling like things are spinning out of control

More storms are brewing as we move deeper into Climate Change . . .
These are the days of the New Normal

People who lived in the 60s and didn’t miss it,
understand that today is like then on steroids . . .

Cats show us how to be both relaxed,
yet alert and oriented at the same time

The old world can remind us to suck it up,
especially when faced with great obstacles

Everybody do this by loving yourself,
and others as much as possible . . .

Picture becoming like the power of water . . .
A gentle, and soft dead calm of a deep ocean

See and hear this mantra cradling your soul in
the form of a safe womb-like setting

A Full Harvest Moon yield’s its crop on October 5th

Become aligned with Nature, and reap Her bountiful blessings
Rather than resisting the apparent curses of Her changing seasons

Till the next trail head,

Can you hear the whistle of Cardinal’s spirit blowing in the wind?
Are you feeling eclipsed by their virtuous and powerful archetypal footprint?

Mercury in Retrograde resurrects perpetually dead, albeit real call backs . . .
Our minds move away from rational, logical and linear recordings

Try not to get identified with any fixed ideas or repetitively negative mental tapes
Just examine them with an open, passive attitude and gently let them pass

A Full Moon coming soon yields a hearty seasonal Harvest . . .
What tremors will be seen, heard and felt across the fruited plains?

Feeling safe, comfortable and regulated will be challenged
But there is an opportunity for letting go and relaxing into seismic changes

Feminine yin power intensifies during the approach of the
Autumn Equinox this September

Back to school, back to business and getting organized is in the air!
But don’t let that drive you nuts . . .

A revival of old religious traditions co-mingles paradoxically with
listening to the messages of your True self and Inner Voice that
remind vitality is always here for you to allow in any given moment!

Climate Change, dark sorcery and violence plague our streets . . .
Breathing in chaotic storm fronts are painful to watch and hard on the lungs . . .

But where are you on the map of seeing a
Silver Lining Playbook and making only positive interpretations?

The black truth is that it can be hard to find Nirvana
within the chaotically deafening traffic jam of life!

Might as well strum the heartstrings of Oneness and
tune in to the key of Inner Peace!

See you further on up the trails,

Otters are outgoing, playful and devoted to their families
Organized, constructive and skillful managers are they

You could say their business is pleasure
as they seem to make this attitude work in their favor

Feminine energy is both grounding like the Earth and powerful like Water

On this Valentine’s Day and everyday
Love the woman in you and embrace her nurturing on your soul

Redefine masculinity by tapping into creative mothering energetics
with soft imaginative faculties

Though a Full Snow Moon arrives later this month
The subtleties of Spring are stirring now

Hard to believe alignment of masculine and feminine energies are coming together
on Spring Equinox barely over a month away

Given this frigid cold right Tao in Northern New England
paradoxically, the intensities of Light heat up everyday

Like changing seasons, shifting tides require us to
ride the waves of cleansing and purification

The time is now to heal our polarity . . .

It is natural to fear the unknown of that which is mysterious

Why do you think so many women were accused of being
witches and burned at the stake?

At what cost do we “make America great again?”
Sounds like the justification for genocide is getting louder on the airwaves folks

But on the flip side of the coin . . .
There’s a polar shift drifting toward activist love that’s got people feeling saintly
or at least perhaps moving toward our better angels in humanity . . .

Do you need to have more fun?
Do you need to let your worries roll off you back?

May Otter reawaken your sense of wonder and an opening up to new experiences
So that you can go with the natural flow of life and let your inner child shine on
instead of pushing against the river and fighting the current

See the good in yourself and everyone else without preconceptions or suspicions
Use mental martial arts to create an envy, jealousy and a catty free zone . . .

What we are talking about is cultivating soul sisterhood with each other –
It’s hard to demonize or have enemies in this space

Come from a place of authenticity and trust in your everyday business
Meditate on letting go of attachments to material world things

Remember that clinging to the pleasures of the physical senses
is a recipe for feeling a grave sense of recycled disappointed!

Mountain Lion embodies a gentle roar through leading by quiet example
Their powerful energy comes from within rather than a position without

Awakening into this style of leadership will probably remain hidden to the naked eye

A New Moon has passed over the horizon
Always a good time to ignite new beginnings in your consciousness

A Full Cold Moon arrives on Christmas day
Not long after the Winter Solstice –
Where darkness peaks at that time

Pretty soon, our days will slowly become longer in the Northern Hemisphere
Sunlight rises day after day until it peaks on
the Summer Solstice in June

Mountain Lion guides us into the true power of an internal martial artist
Cultivating energetic momentum that builds gradually like water
A cumulative effect of simmering softness of feminine energy has risen again

Accept responsibility and leap into action
Adjust your game plan at any given moment and respond accordingly

Meditate on the primal elemental forces of water and darkness . . .

How many times have we feared our own feminine nature?

Relax into any unknown adventures  along the way

Onward up the trails,

Guardian Hawk swoops in with a fresh look
At the visionary power of a New Moon this week . . .

Symbolically connecting us to new beginnings as new moons do

Autumn Equinox and a string of powerful
Supermoons have fleetingly eclipsed our soulful travels –

Now we are falling back onto a recent memory of
balance between light and dark energies . . .
Synchronizing with Mercury going back direct at the tail end of last week

Clarity resumes as the fog lifts in tandem with
the thinning of the veils before our eyes . . .

Twilight approaches as the ghosts of yesteryear reawaken spirited conversations

Hawk awakens our perception to gain a bird’s-eye view of
Nature’s offerings of signals that become intuitively
obvious when we are paying attention

A dying old world lives as
A parallel New Earth is being born out of the Phoenix Rising

Do you walk around with a yoke around your neck for a sense of security –
Or are you able to go within and hover in your own personal authority?

Do you understand the space where true freedom resides?

It cannot be known without accepting the responsibility that follows in its wake

While Mouse might inflate the minutia of a magnifying glass
Hawk sees through a wide-angle lens –
Without pole-vaulting over mouse turds

Belief in the magic of everyday life –
Helps us overcome our challenges and obstacles

Alternative solutions not yet perceived are wanting to become obvious
We are moving away from action-oriented yang into more inner directed yin
As the darkness of feminine energetics gains momentum

Stay alert and trust your intuition to read the omens to light your way
Hawk helps us rise toward our ascension –
into higher perspectives in our consciousness

What signals are being sent to you to point you in the direction
of moving closer toward your soul purpose?

Time to focus up and relax on distractions that take away from your soul promptings

Temperance . . .
Moderation is merely a harmonic convergence of
“one foot in spirit, one foot in ground”

Upper levels of consciousness take flight

Hawk levies a flood of creative-psychic energies . . .
Without being swept off your feet in this sensuous Universe

Open up to new ways to approach old challenges

Be careful of what you say, how you say it and who you say it to
because Hawk medicine carries the power to crush or kill those in your path
if you throw caution to the wind

The old ways are not working anymore . . .

Given underlying resentments regarding the offshore US military base of Israel,
the build-up of an American police state or a frightened and armed American public

There are too many stray guns and bullets on the streets –
Coupled with easy access to concealed weapons, limited social skills
and proliferating undiagnosed and untreated mental illness . . .

This Imperial witches brew is a dark cauldron that increases the likelihood of violence

The metaphor here is that we all need to feel a sense of belonging
and learn how to effectively emote

Be mindful of how your actions may speak louder than words
and how they might impact another

Bees are symbolic of the sun and his spirited energies . . .

A wake up call to drink in Life’s honey through the
Power of Love, fertility, industry and sexuality

A Tribe Called Bee represents . . .
Groupwork and the power of community –
Without sacrificing our individuality by getting stuck in hive mentality

Working in masculine drones, bees epitomize a strong work ethic –
A parallel process to humanity’s conservative Labor Movement
Queens rule the roost – so their society hints at matriarchal
Paradoxically their culture is hierarchical

The top-down world we live in has roots that are deeply planted
In the underground of our subconscious minds
But Nature has strong leveling impulses to a
Cross-Pollinate a more equitable New Earth
Where flowering power is shared

We dream of a world that does not give liberal affirmative action
To only those with big bank accounts
Out of the primordial, feminine darkness . . .
Dreams of an egalitarian planetary consciousness –
Are wanting to come out and dance in the sunlight

Past Bruce now Caitlyn Jenner’s transformation
Reveals our cultural sprint toward
Crossing over into the shores of celebrating diversity in Unity

Do yo need to examine your own sexuality or your attitudes toward sex in general?

We are healing our polarity

The sting of political correctness glosses over deeper issues with
Superficial “life support systems”
But flying with a playful sense of humor
Sees the light behind this black comedy of errors

Class War is as hot as ever
Fueled by a well-oiled but dirty and unsustainable Stock Exchange
Old World “tinder boxes” are ready to ignite
These are dangerously fiery times we are living in

Movement into a New Age and Paradigm flows into
Rising tides of strong feminine power
We are leaving behind a dominant patriarchical world view
that fears the Sacred Feminine

But the dark night of yin wants to come out of the closet and express herself
This does not mean “sugar and spice and everything nice”

Nor does it mean reacting to our emotions
with stinging volatility or closeted elegant repression

We are witnessing a mass exodus of Bees
Genocide by poisonous pesticides
But they do return once we stop using these toxins

A planet without bees is a world without flowers and fruits
Talk about a buzz killer

“A good worker is a happy worker”

Like bees, humans know there is power in numbers . . .
Dig in to unearth a deeper message beneath the command –
“Be fruitful and multiply”

Are you working too much or not being industrious enough?
Are you taking time to smell the roses and enjoy the fruits of your labor?

Let us spread Love by ringing the Liberty Bell of equality
Get up and stand up to corporate power by asserting that our
Big Businesses should literally stop “killing it” –
It is time to let go of a bottom line intention of maximum economic profits

Bee are helpful guides in the pursuit of our dreams
Sunlight is rising toward its summit on Summer Solstice later on this month
Masculine-Light-Yang is action oriented
Reflecting Nature’s pole vault toward outer growth

Earth Eagle serves up inspiration to give back
to our Mother during these
shared blessings of harvest season

Turkey’s death sustains our lives
Digesting gratitude for their sacrifices
is good food for deeply thankful thought

A dying old world programs us to buy into
a mantra that pushes us to acquire and get ahead
But when we try to use force to ends by justifying means
We are saying that we don’t trust the Universe to give us what we need

Meditation on Turkey reminds us to walk with secured footing
Reflecting our own adaptable nature
by roosting in different locations in the dirge of night
Let us be mindful of what dreams might come into our material realm

Building a New Earth with Turkey
Gives birth to win-win co-creative possibilities

Why not wake up expecting synchronicity?

Seasons change gradually
Transitions feel more gentle when weathered
like a slowly dripping spigot

Are you appreciating the subtleties of larger changes to come?

A resurrection of the Golden Rule
Awakens a place where the Higher Self meets Collective Consciousness
We gather in a theatrical convergence of egalitarian harmony
Birds of a feather flocking together

Do you see that what is good for the goose is good for the gander?

Yes squirrels get angry about turkeys stealing their Winter stockpiles
But we can dig on the symbolism of nuts and acorns
In mining our souls to burn clean energy
We unearth hidden wisdom and seeds of growth

Visions from our Third Eyes welcomes
abundant arrivals of feminine energies
She has strength in Her numbers
It takes a formidable systemic empire to hold us back
But that need not make us public enemy number one

Remember that we are all One
Cut from the same cloth
Though diverse expressions

Steer clear from fear-based peddlers of divisive images of hatred
to the out of tune choir of Ebola, ISIS, War on Terror
and Police free indictments chimes in with
arrested development of self-preservation
Ferguson is a magnifying mirror of an American horror show

Occupy Critical Mass

How smart are you at being lulled into a hypnotic trance
by mediums of advanced technologic distractions?

May we gracefully allow Turkey’s spirit guide us in
warding off negative energies
that feed off our souls
So that we are light on our feet

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

Cat’s medicinal power sees effectively in the dark night
Watching the veils thin before our eyes
Opening perceptual doors revealing our own Divine sunlight

A stinger of a Scorpio New Moon has passed us by
With seasonal reminders that everything old is new again

Now we pounce toward Halloween, All Saints Day and All Souls Day

Are you using your cat-like powers in a positive light?

Releasing old ghost stories gives birth to spirited new character development
Are your underlying emotional cards fanned out on the table?
Or are you hiding beneath tales from the crypt?
Dark emotions carry venom only when bottled up and then acted out in toxic ways

Cat’s eye can give you a glimpse into facing passed down fears from our ancestors
This is a good time of year to symbolically give back those inherited burdens
Through telepathic, prayer, meditation or visualization communication rituals

A quiet mind is an aware mind when calm and relaxed
Do whatever you can to conjure up inner peace

Feminine powers brew magical mystery tours
in mystically soulful cauldrons

Are life’s obstacles merely tricked treats cloaked in a brilliant disguise?

Being a leader affords wizardly empathic glimpses
into divergent viewpoints of our charges

Cat awakens paradoxical energies
Purring telepathic messages
Meowing that even a loner can become a social creature

Or are you like Dog and need to become more independent?
Do you need to become more discriminate in your choice of companions?

Are you weighed down by voices of guilt and resentments?
Replace them with a forgiving and compassionate heart

Setting an intention of mindful awareness in our daily doings
disassemble any robotic short circuits in our politics of living

Following downstream rivers of bliss
mirrors an outer fun house that won’t drive you mad

In spite of our circumstances or what we deem should or should not have happened
We remember to run the play and follow our shots
When Life deals us a full court press

We are becoming more introspective Now
with Bear’s medicinal power –
Truth tastes sweet like honey . . .

When we open our eyes . . .
Looking beyond a cursory glance –
Deeper into our soul’s den.

Bear guides us to see . . .
Stillness speaking when quieting our mind to heed its call.

Do you see the many alternative solutions . . .
Abounding in the Dreamtime?
So that we might consciously weave this knowing into our waking reality?

Intuitive right brain feminine energy . . .
Receiving the fruition of our goals with our Third Eye –
Seen first in our imagination
Before we have manifestation.

Weaving spirit into our doings –
Loosens up our entanglements with form.

Allowing our soul’s light to shine on . . .

Fear and resistance dims our souls –
Remembering positive self talk . . .
Digging in to find our self-worth and security within.

Rather than reacting to the business of our outer world . . .
Are you listening to old mental tapes going on in your head?
Are you ready to create new recordings in your mind space?

Meditation on the energy of Bear facilitates inner knowing.

See you further on down the trails,

Ari
