The Return of Dragonfly And A Full Sturgeon Moon On Sunday, August 22, 2021

The Full Sturgeon Moon peaks on Sunday, August 22, 2021 at 8:02 A.M. Eastern Time. Our ancestors named this Full Moon after Sturgeon because August traditionally represented the peak seasonal catch of these mighty fish. Fish are highly sensitive creatures, and water is a powerful conductor of sound vibration. Keep in mind that humans are made up of mostly water. It is scientifically proven that we can influence our thoughts and can co-create our reality through the power of positive self talk. Might as well give our purposeful attention toward collaborative co-creative, fluid thinking over fixed, stagnant ideas. If there’s a fish that captures the expression ‘stirring the pot’, it’s Sturgeon. Given that Sturgeon have been around for over 130 million years, they reveal a survival instinct that should catch our attention, if you’ll pardon the pun.

Spiritually, Sturgeon’s ability to thrive, in spite of the many Climate Changes they have faced over millions of years, truly reflects their resiliency. Now more than ever, humans need to cultivate resiliency on our Planet today. Like Sturgeon, we have a strong survival instinct. But we could stand to build our resiliency at this juncture so that we can weather the changes in Ages we are now facing. We need to understand our interconnection with each other and all creatures from Mother Earth and the Universe. Co-regulation means that we can be in our heads and our hearts with each other in ways that both honors our diversity and recognizes our unity.

A Full Sturgeon Moon awakens the magic of color in the theater of life.

But be careful of getting caught up in your own fantasies

of turning everything you touch into gold.

True wizardry is the knowledge that eating humble pie is good food for the soul.

Follow Dragonfly’s flight plan for a magical mystery tour.

Imagine flitting about with a playful, light-hearted sense of detachment in your energy field.

Have you ever heard of the story of the Emperor’s New Clothes?

Picture a Dragonfly to add color to your Life

Flit away any burdens your soul might be carrying

You don’t have to plug truth into a computerized search engine to learn about

what is really true and real

Are you focusing on what others are telling you?

Or are you paying attention to how people make you feel on the inside?

Dragonfly inspires us to be light on the feet –

with magical colors of waning sunlight

See through illusionary smokescreens through the

laser precision eyes of a spiritual watcher

What hidden aspects of yourself want to come out into the sun and

dance in the daylight for others to see?

A Full Sturgeon Moon signals a peak seasonal catch . . .

Might as well swim with the current instead of pushing against the primordial power of water

Dragonfly breathes magic and color

into the ordinary doings of everyday life

A long time ago . . .

Dragon had the Midas touch of always going straight for the gold

But a wise guy called Coyote tricked Dragon by shrinking him down to a fly

so that he could eat a slice of humble pie

Do you need a change in habit?

What good are your lucky charms

If you get consumed by your own facade?

Let go of the shores and surrender to Life’s oceanic bounty

Are you holding yourself back with programmed beliefs that want to

break out of their boxed in mental compartments?

Lighten up by picturing a dragonfly making dazzling aerial feats

in the wide open vastness of your infinite inner space . . .

Ask for directional guidance to see through illusionary smokescreens –

Allow transformational pathways to become self-evident truths

Summer is a powerful time to act and create change in your life!

But it won’t be long before Nature reflects a colorful transition –

when Autumn leaves behind fleeting energetic balance and fallen old selves

Life is a mystery – isn’t the destination really the adventure of the journey?

Commentary:

August is a mysterious month. It is a time where it feels very much like the heat of summer will last forever. But even early on in the month – if you look carefully, you can see subtle evidence that fall is coming. Perhaps it’s a fallen leave or a hint of color that looks out-of-place in a treeline of green. Dragonflies are colorful creatures that do incredible feats. They are good reminders that it is a magical, mysterious and colorful world out there. Use their energies to see through the smoke and mirrors and awaken a more authentic and meaningful life experience. Remember to get out and play outside and meditate on the healing application of water.

Take care of yourselves everyone,

Ari

In case you missed it, here is a Chakra meditation video demonstration that I recorded recently. You can also find a multimedia description on the meditation page of this website:

As The Sturgeons Run, The Dragonfly

A Full Sturgeon Moon arrived in the skies yesterday.

Many of our ancestors noticed these great fish run,
and liberally give us a peak seasonal catch.

This Earth, and Her creatures have given us so much of their bounty.

You’d think our Mother’s wisdom would
take root in our consciousness, and that we’d be hooked.

The time is now to give back.

You don’t have to hug a trees, go to protests,
become seduced by a savior complex, or pound your chest about your political
beliefs to convince everyone that you have all the right answers.

But what you really can do to move with climate change is become the change you
want to see in the world by noticing your own climate on the inside.

That’s damn near impossible when you’re demonizing yourself or others,
feeding off your anger, hatred, and fears.

As a living soul, you came here to experience life by waking up to
the reality that you are a spiritual being having a human experience.

We are collective souls, and we can cocreate heaven on earth.
This knowledge has been also passed on by our ancentry.

A loving blueprint was designed by Creator, and imprinted in our DNA
with the universal intention to rewire itself in our being.

Have you ever heard the saying that
today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday?

Might as well replace those fears with peaceful, calming thoughts, by
following the river of life, with all of its twists and turns
without getting damed up in our thought forms.

Be mindful of the way Dragonfly brings
the magic of color in our world.

Do you see the intersection between the energies
of dreamtime and material reality?

Dragonfly medicine shows us the ability to hover in the air,
and reflects powerful pictures of light prisms that are
captured in the eye of Nature’s still frames.

But even as the torch of the summer season wanes, there is still
an abundance of beacons to light our way.

Before long, it will be back to school, back to business,
and time to reorient to the industry of a new season.

Many people have mixed feelings about the celebratory vibrations of
summery tonic falling back into the prism of Autumn’s foilage.

Won’t be long before light and dark are equal again on the Fall Equinox.

Like many professional athletes, teachers refer to this
transition as shifting gears from the off season to adjusting
their craft of their game plan accordingly.

As children age, many of them awaken their perception to mixed feelings
about these scheduling changes that are coming down the pike.

Their are various emotional reactions to the changes in routine
that are coming down the pike.

But it is how you move with these transtions that really matter.

Remember your heads and your hearts.

Let them dance together in alignment with the spirit of the season.

Till we tweet again peeps,

Ari

Coyote Beauty

Coyote appears along the trails this week
The tides of a Full Sturgeon Moon roll in to soulful shorelines

We are about to enter into another powerful astrological eclipse season,
and Mercury in retrograde will rise again in our collective consciousness

What past selves, or old relationship issues are revisiting your consciousness?
And our greater global community?

Have you noticed recurrent themes hiding behind any internal blockages –
maybe from shortcuts or bypass lanes you might have created
to protect against new growth opportunities?

Hard to believe summer is waning in a downhill gait
Subtle evidence of Fall is whispering in the air

Squirrels are dropping acorns with greater industry
as tree limbs are shaking in preparation for cold nights ahead . . .

Can you appreciate how they channel their nervous woodland creature energy?

Coping with life anxieties is really about how you
approach these challenges as opportunities for letting go of coveted outcomes

Coyote’s wisdom is about learning how to chuckle at your follies
Balance comes through laughing at Life’s insanity
without going straight outta woodland

A feminine truth about natural and chaotic ways of unpredictable mystery,
reveals a fair and balanced security system in the magic of dark unknowing forces

So, we have con artists convincing their mirrors
that they are the gods we should follow

Just be wise to that old act, instead of fooled
into getting swept off your feet by the peddling of fear and hate

And here’s a coyote tricky truth . . .

You are as much of part of that apparent stranger on death row,
as you are part of Donald Trump

Or anyone else you either put on a pedestal or demonize

It can be hard to see yourself in the other person you criticize
or whatever they are doing that bugs you, or moves you emotionally

Behind every furrowed brow or sarcastic snicker
lives dark emotions, and a universal sadness that grieves

With potential for a deeper passage into the channels of empathy

See you down trail,

Ari

Dragonfly Lightens Up Our Inner Skies

Dragonfly lands onto soulful inner space landing pads this week
Like us, they come from primordial creative waters

The energy of Dragonfly breathes the fires of color magic
onto paintings of our everyday living portraits . . .

A Full Sturgeon Moon swims into the seas of a Lunar Eclipse
arriving down the pike at the tail end of the first week in August . . .

The rising tide of the Age of Aquarius, and astrological eclipses in August
is streaming in Love and Truth into our collective consciousness . . .

But old world blockages fortify the status quo of old ways
Even if they are no longer working for us anymore,
and suffocating on life supports systems . . .

Bowing to the devil you know doesn’t mean you ignore your better angels
Stay away from fear and hatred, and closer to relaxing on rigidity . . .

Equality is awakening our individualistic diversity within our holistic unity!

This is easier to forget when watching the military-industrial complex,
and their carpet bagging bringing of dark emotions,
like fascist thinking out into the sunlight

Those old commercials try to convince us that we in the
United States are entitled to sit on a golden throne,

At the same time, we are sold on the idea that those living certain
profiled neighborhoods overseas are of lesser value . . .

But we see the same dynamic play out right here on our own turf
in areas populated by targeted demographics that include the poor and oppressed

Remember to keep it light with Dragonfly as a spiritual ally!

Till we meet again on the field,

Ari

Climbing the Trails with Mountain Lion

Mountain Lion hides in caverns, cracks and crevices
Their energies reflect silent leadership and strong feminine power

Yin is rising toward Autumn’s ascension

Feminine power is strongest when cultivated gradually
through a gentle and soft approach

A Full Sturgeon Moon floats
into our stream of consciousness on August 18th

Humans have been programmed to be afraid of the dark
Which is why it is tempting keep the blinders on and go back to sleep

But the light of consciousness wants to shine on
what we were once blinded by

That could be learning something new about yourself or someone you know
Perhaps that new information does not sit well with your preconceived notions

In that light, maybe the shades of your worldview has been forced to lift

But Nature reflects storms brewing that require us to pay attention
to the subtleties of the changing seasons

Cats remind us of the magic, mystery and synchronicity
that lurk behind shadows and dark areas

What self-evident truths want to leap out into the waning sunlight?

The Autumn Equinox is coming soon in later September
Between Tao and Zen we will experience an astrological eclipse season

At that time, light and dark energies will be fleetingly equal again
Masculine and feminine energies will be in alignment with one another

What winds of change are brewing in the air up there?

When I think of how maddening it is to hold onto the shores,
I remember the wisdom of letting go and letting God

Because what we resist will persist

It does feel less crazy to float with the current
and trust the process without throwing caution to the wind

See you further on up the trails,

Ari

Finding Industry with Beaver

Beavers are industrious creatures . . .
Building and being productive is what they do

Their medicine is a friendly reminder that
dreams arrive if you consciously sculpt them into this reality

A Full Sturgeon Moon is rapidly approaching upstream
While an Astrological Fall Season is blowing in the winds of change ahead

Autumn season sits on the horizon in the Northern hemisphere
While Summer’s light gradually wanes

Do you take issue with that forthcoming situation or do you rejoice about a new season?

Leave it to Beaver to show you how to produce a new film your life –
Especially if you don’t feel a sense of purpose anymore

It will take some work on your part
But seasonal energies can help energize your way

Otherwise, it’s just the same old Groundhog Day movie
that repeatedly plays out in your life’s script

Beavers are action-oriented team players that embody mutual-aid group work
Meditation on their knowledges reveals alternative ways of travel

There is a sense of harmony and spacial respect in their eco-development
This is the wave of the future for a more fair playing field

Leave it to Beaver to inspire a work ethic and harmonic convergence of labor

See you further on down the trails,

Ari
