A Full Buck Moon arrives at the tail end of this week . . .

May the gentle lure of Deer guide you into points of
New adventures during your journey here

Baby groundhogs have surfaced from their wintry womb . . .
Their mother’s are kicking them out of the house now

Their energies reflect boundaries in spacial congregation,
with roommates or other family members . . .

Adopt the kind of respect embodied by Woodchuck . . .
The approach doesn’t have to be hard, rotten or bitter

Humanity could stand to learn how they develop their communal spaces
that harmonize with their social living environment

Notice how the wisdom of their parental launching style
Synchronizes with August’s forthcoming astrological eclipse season

Mother Nature can become a bit of a bear –
Especially when she is poked and prodded by dirty energy

Old selves are tested and fading into the backdrop . . .
This clears space for a death without dying perspective

A New Self and a New World want to be born in harmony

See you further down the trails,

Groundgog Day arrives this week . . .
A passing New Moon, and waxing Full Snow moon is coming soon

The energies of February eclipse season are stirring seeds of change in our world
These rising tides of changes in consciousness are not met without resistance

Just yesterday, Father Time delivered the birth of the
Chinese-Lunar New Year of the Rooster into our Mother Earth

It is also the traditional Imbolc, a time when our ancestors honored
Nature’s halftime celebration between Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox

So whether or not Groundhog sees his shadow,
Groundhog medicine awakens underground forces

May the Goddess Brigid be the fiery light at the end dark tunnels . . .

Meditate on Groundhog’s spiritual guidance on death without dying . . .
What old self needs to die, what New Self wants to grow?

If you are willing to take a deeper and higher responsibility in life,
then you can transcend cause and effect

You can let go of your suffering, and be free from that kind of slavery

In spite of cold weather, and darker days

Groundhog reminds us that the seeds underground
are contemplating the waking up process to blossom in the Spring

Are you ready to tunnel into and examine the catacombs of your soul
to recycle that compost so that it will blossom in the Springtime?

If you take issue with some else’s perceived transgressions . . .
Are you able to express your feelings without going straight outta woodland?

Just because you might feel justified in your emotional expression through
provocative and aggressive language does not make your delivery OK

Love always wins in the long run,
never the dark forces of hatred and bigotry

Part of being human is learning to differentiate and individuated from our
emotions without becoming our emotions

What matters is how we express our emotions
We are more likely to get respect when we give it

Or you can be a victim and continue to live in hell

This requires us to hit the pause button, and stop, think and relax before
responding to the situation at hand . . .

Be the Aquarian New Age transformation you want to see in the world!

Groundhog Day comes out of hiding this week
May we be inspired to face our shadow sides while tunneling through
dark nights of our souls during Winter’s wake

Isn’t the labyrinth of our inner tapestry an expansive and deeply mysterious place?

But with the ascent of yang rising toward alignment with darkness
Spring Equinox arrives in March . . .

Bringing energetic balance to the Force

But before that, a Chinese Year of the Monkey
swings in next week to signify a new Lunar calendar year ahead
and remind us of the power of community

We are digging further into a New Age of Aquarian unity
Reawakening us to the reality that we are all in this together . . .

Regardless of our superficial differences to the naked eye
or cursory glance of illusionary divisions

You are not alone

A beacon of light is becoming harder to ignore

Groundhog’s seasonal sleep –
reflects death without dying

If only we allow the light to illuminate the shadows

Remember Winter’s death breathes life into Spring’s rebirth . . .

Purposeful underground digging allows for seeds of our
subconscious minds to walk in the sunlight

If you peer into Nature, you will see examples of life and death everywhere
But we do not have to physically die to experience rebirth

Consider a game plan for this lifetime that gives you an opportunity to
play every down like it’s your last

Make sure it is you that commands the call for the
boundaries on the playing field that you want respected

Remember to maintain your own integrity in your daily business transactions

Take a deep breath of fresh air in every living moment . . .
And then exhale its death and let go of it . . .

Awaken to the metaphor of reincarnation …
Transform the Law of Cause and Effect –

Realize that you are a creation of your thoughts
Become conscious of them and transform your thoughts
so they are in alignment with the Golden Rule

See this reflect in your everyday outer reality as our collective Higher Truth . . .

Let us live in the here and now while revisiting and redefining Groundhog Day

Hope to see you onward up the trail,

Groundhogs radically lower their body temperature, respiration and heartbeat
Securing a protected slumber to keep safe and sound while frozen in time
During this week’s Full Snow Moon

Do you ever feel like you are sleepwalking through life in a hypnotic trance?
Every day is the same
Like Bill Murray’s character in the iconic film Groundhog Day
Even when killing himself, he cannot escape his suffering

But there is a way out of our suffering by leaning into our pain

A Groundhog’s Winter hibernation
Symbolizes death and rebirth while we are breathing
Waking-Up the embers of underground unconsciousness
Unearthing mysteries of death without dying

Pregnant with dreamy seeds of who we want to become
When Spring Eclipse season buds into our consciousness
While slumbering in dark tunnels of our soul

Lucid dreaming sheds light on our underground digging and tunneling
Do you feel your subconscious mind waking-up?

Life and death are deeply mysterious unknowns
But we do not have to physically die to live
with a healthy relationship with our mortality

Regardless of the weather forecast, unexpected changes happen
Order and chaos are in a fluctuating tango
Our boarders and edges soften with time

Are you sending clear signals for boundaries you want respected?

Mercury in retrograde resurrects relationships from our past
Use this period to release and let-go of stagnant energies
Like feeling abandoned, rejected, resentful or bitter
Gently allowing healing to take place instead of developing an attitude

Regarding past regrets . . .
Remember that you win when you choose forgiveness
Give yourself permission to grieve so that you can move forward

Are you handling the accompaniment of mixed and conflicting feelings
that are rising up to the surface without getting stuck in global overwhelm?

But rather than skillfully avoiding our pain and discomforts
Through sophisticated symptom relief . . .
If only we develop our tolerance threshold, accept and even embrace
our internal deaths and rebirths with grace

We breathe in the fresh air of every living moment . . .
And then exhale its death in the next moment of kin . . .

We can let go of our resentments and digest bitter
Relaxing the charge we have felt by our pain

If only we learn to live in the present as it happens
We gently allow a distant past of abuses or projected future fantasies
Pass with care

We awaken to the metaphor of reincarnation
Transcending the Law of Cause and Effect
Reworking and revisiting Groundhog Day
Into a magical mystery tour of
Right Now!

See you further on up the trails,

Groundhog reveals chiaroscuro
Shadowy death without dying in winter’s Dreamtime
Digging into Quantum shadowy unknown Twilight Zones
Closer to springtime

Surfing tidal waves of possibility
O’er a rainbow of spontaneity
Down yonder golden halo light of day

Yet with Mercury in Retrograde
We can dig on confronting our self-imposed limits
By accessing sensible, realistic pragmatism
While effectively reworking busyness in our business

Be careful of unintended consequences before diving into commitments
Self defense against burnout, compassion fatigue and spreading yourself thin

Money is energy and part of abundance
With positive or negative values attached to its manifestation
Like overfishing leads to swimming upstream
Does a forthcoming economic tailspin
Plunge us into a more equitable and sustainable unfolding Golden Age?

Imagine justice on Earth without a fight
If corporations are people too, then shouldn’t this process be more organic?

Remembering compassion toward others is empowering toward thyself
Designating a sacred space facilitates believing in yourself – Faith and Trust
“I can breathe here. I can relax here. I know I am safe here.”

Think before you speak while
Having a non-confrontational conversation with present moment

In stillness of winter
Can’t you hear the seeds underground thinking about waking up?
Waxing light ignites pregnant energies
Stoking the flames of rebirth
“It is in the still darkness of the void that the light is born.”

But birth is not without labor pains . . .
(Monsanto Genetic Engineering to repel Agent Orange?)
C’Mon Man!
Feeling restless, irritable and depressed?

Thank You goddess Brighid for wishing us mystically well
How do you like them apples?

Intuitive heart-minds assert that we are a healthy weight when listening
to our bodily signs singing songs about our buoyancy and agility

This Friday I’m in Love with a Full Moon
Won’t you join me in its becoming?

See you further on down the trails,

I remember when my mom used to say to me, “how much wood would a Woodchuck chuck if a Woodchuck could chuck wood?”   And then we would both share a heartfelt chuckle.  Today, my own child laughs with me as I tell her that story about her “grandma Karen” that she’s never physically met.  Although it has been 17 years since my mom tragically suicided and accompanying deep wounds within following that, She has been lovingly re-visiting me lucidly in my Dreamtime, during the Deep Void of Winter, here in the Northern hemisphere on Mothership Gaia.  Perhaps as We digest Groundhog’s death without dying medicine, Our planet’s slowing Pisces heartbeat will breathe New Life into Our Hearts as We transition into a whole New World of Aquarian Unity Consciousness. 

Who knows, maybe the crystals next to my head in bed are helping me see more clearly these days . . . when I die tonight, I’ll eat A Slice of Heaven and digest it Mystically well . . . I pray to God (Universe) to bathe me in Light as I leave behind my human shell.  Although I don’t condone my mom’s Last Exit, Her spirit is inspiring me to internalize Groundhog’s mysteries of death without dying.  Has anyone out there ever seen the American film classic, “Groundhog Day”?  On the surface, it’s vintage Bill Murray and full of humor guaranteed to raise One’s serotonin.  However, in its depth, Murray’s character personifies a metaphor for Reincarnation and inspires Us to transcend Karma and egotism by coming full circle spiritually.  If We allow Our Selves to tap into Groundhog’s energy, We have the opportunity to Venture into the Unknown and consciously bring back sacred knowledge from the Dreamtime.  Paradoxically, when We effectively journey into the realm of the Great Unconscious, Groundhog medicine helps Us feel more alive, in that it won’t be the last time We commit suicide, from a Shamanic, death without dying perspective. 

Additionally, one way to explore a Shamanic journeying experience is to meditate on Groundhog this week.  If You are feeling particularly adventurous, perhaps consider pounding on a drum in Your sacred space, ask this Power Animal-Totem-Spirit Guide what It has to teach You, remember gratitude for It’s shared lessons while drumming and then practice letting go of whatever gifts You received during your journey.  Groundhog medicine has the potential to help Us with discernment and clarifying what boundaries are appropriate for Our Selves in relationship with others.  Now I realize that I am fun-gi (especially when eating organically grown mushrooms) and remember that being a clearer channel is connected to leading a cleaner lifestyle.  Moreover, I notice that I’m burning cleaner gas when I stay away from gluten and am feeling sublime when “40 ounces to freedom” while consuming four, 40’s of spring water per day (95 total ounces is probably a good hash mark for most of You).   It’s as if Groundhog’s mantra is to remember to stay grounded, while leaving your human shell behind . . . good “Chicken Soup for the Soul”, if you will. 

I Hopi You are well,

Ari
