Goose is honking out to us that Spring has sprung . . .

The spirited guidance of Geese synchronizes with New Moons –
Time to wake up to symbolic connections to new beginnings

“Out with old, in with the new.”

Geese reflect possibilities
of flowering egalitarian soul mate relationships

Goose offers wise counsel in developing couple partnership
that is based on a lifetime commitment of mutuality and trust –

A testament to purification, renewal and sustainable intimacy

What birds of a feather are you attracted to flocking together?
Do you want to become the change you want to see in the world?

Be the calm in the eye of the storm, as our world needs that now more than ever

But at the end of the day, we all need to learn how to create healthy marriages
with our own intrinsic masculine and feminine nature

A mythical sense of Life’s spiritual quest
and adventure into legendary places is re-awakened

May we re-imagine what we want our lives to look like
Suspension of disbelief stimulates the fantastic even in the mundane

Become the author of your own life by changing your story
Use the energy of Goose to unlock the forces of creativity in your daily script

Geese are vegetarians and a good reminder that we are what we eat
Are you getting enough vegetables in your daily diet?

Like an arrow, the formation of Geese point us toward experiencing
new directions and possibilities that will sharpen our vision
So that we are on target with a Bull’s Eye precision
In peaceful and non-violent ways
When we venture out and trek into new frontiers

Fasten your seat belts and
Ready up your mind-body-spirit ships
for beaming up toward uncharted places in your consciousness

Try not to be too perfectionist in your goal-setting
May we re-member that it is the mystery of the journey
that matters more than the destination of the final frontier

See you further on up the trails,

We are kissed by a strong Pink Full Moon today –
Oh what a greeting!
Dancing under a bright Spring Eclipse setting

A powerful and transformative catalyst illuminates the scenery . . .
Picture a budding green New World

Have you caught wind of the pungent stink of rebirth in the air?

We humans are mostly water –
So, it stands to reason that, on some level at least,
we are all affected by Full Moon’s
In much the same way as “hospitals, police stations and the ocean’s tides”
Might as well swim with Her currents

Isn’t that just another opportunity for deepening our empathy for one another?

Porcupine medicine stimulates the flow of innocence and joy
Reawakening a sense of wonder energetically
A light-hearted feeling of detachment is rediscovered playfully

Some Native American tribes use Porcupine quills to
stimulate energy to get stuck emotional waters
become flowing streams

Tribal wisdom on this continent is akin
to ancient Taoist wisdom that brought acupuncture needles to these shores

It is as if Porcupine leaves behind an air of nonchalant humor that jests
that even beyond China, that’s just the way the egg rolls

Yes, we live in an intense outer world with serious problems
But there are more powerful than usual spirited energies
that want us to see infinite solutions
facilitate positive changes moving away from our dysfunctional ways

Do you have enough faith to move mountains and trust in a Divine Plan?

Learning to dance in our daily walk
Awakens a sense of blissful adventure

Try not to get pricked by our anxiety-ridden, adult-centric old world
of fear, greed and suffering . . .
Train yourself to let go of
the toxicity of manipulation, dog eat dog and an eye for an eye mentality

Be open to the magical mind of child
There is strength in vulnerability
But keep your inner child well protected

Try not to get swayed by what others think you should or shouldn’t be doing
Explore fun and enjoyable activities that you want to do

Are you feeling charged by the emotional barbs of others?

“Freedom comes when we deal with the pain behind the button,
thus disconnecting our automatic reaction to being pushed”

We are all created intrinsically equal
Nobody is built better or worse than anyone else
We just have different talents
that, with our diverse gifts, we can help build a better world for all of us

Curiosity stimulates our minds and resurrects our souls . . .
Know the power of imagination and fantasy
just waiting to be discovered within the mundane world of everyday life

Even a grumpy old bear is inspired by Porcupine’s way
of enjoying playfully childlike games.

May we allow our identification with intellectualism to fall away
As we spring forth a fiery heart’s intuition

Last week, we tracked with Wolf
This week, we remember our canine kin howling in hunger
Digesting psychic lunar connections on this
Sunday’s Full Wolf Moon

We’ll see you on the Dark Side of the Moon

Now a soaring Eagle in flight
Illuminates our Divine nature
While keeping our free-spirited feet
Deeply rooted in the Earth

Eagle inspires our human family to balance our spirited heavenly state
With our feet on common ground
In this space, we are good stewards to our Mother

A Gregorian New Year passes us by
Setting foot into 2015
Tis the season to look beyond instinctual preferences
To making practical choices that better serve our well-being in the long run

What places inside of yourself needs refinement?

Perhaps an eagle-eyed view will reveal Higher Self vistas
Flying beyond immediate weather fronts

Have you been walking in the footsteps of your shadow selves?

Loving both our light and dark sides
Illuminates the alchemy of Eagle’s powerful medicine

We The People and our Earth are in transition
Like Her, we are sentient beings
As Her children, we are also in process of ascending up the mountain
In the everywhere air where Great Spirit resides

We are all seeds that have been planted – do you feel them stirring?

Intimacy is a reciprocal exchange between open hearts beating together
with authentic soulful expression

What is lurking beneath those pesky emotionally triggered arguments?
Is there a deeper pain in your soul that wants to awaken and be heard?

Playing situational football in life
Signals mutable cadences and audible calls
But it is equally good to stick to the game plan
And stay on track without mental rigidity

We are a land of hopes and dreams
May we be clear about our intentions
Having faith and trust that our Dreamtime will come about
But not without releasing our attachments and letting go of preferred outcomes

What seeds do you want to water in the year ahead?

Will you be driven by your emotions or see what is behind them?
Fly like an eagle over co-creative win-win realities
To snatch up for our planet and beyond

Wolves and humans share strong individualistic urges
Coupled with a strong kinship with pack family

Our legendary relationship with wolves
evolves from a shared distant constellation connection
Far out as Dog Star Sirius sounds
We all have star-dust encoded in our DNA

A passing Winter Solstice
Leaves behind many souls exiting Earth at this junction
But their imprint lives on

Honoring our ancestors helps guide us into new pathways of being together
In darkness and light we learn from our tribe

Wolf government balances pecking order
with democratic principles

What kind of new trails will we blaze into the year ahead?

We don’t always agree with one another
But may we resolve our difference in harmony

Energy is as energy does
Might as well relax into letting go of trying to control its flow

When feeling moved by annoying family members
Part of meditative path is adjusting ourselves on the inside
so that we are calm during the weather underground of another

Connections with moon
Unlocks knowledge and wisdom

What is lurking beneath your conscious experience with reality?

Wolf awakens a wise teacher within
Sitting with the unfolding mystery

Meditate on your experiences with anger for a moment . . .
Are you finding positive and constructive ways to channel your anger?

Traveling with Horse this week
Saddling up with power in freedom

Do you need to take more risks and embrace freedom?

With attached price tag of responsibility
Merely the capacity to respond to any given situation

Is your independence being restrained?

Galloping past the dark horse of Winter Solstice this week
into blazing novel frontiers on New Moon

Is it time to embark on a physical or mental journey?

Horse whisperings gradually coax back the light

What seeds do we want to plant, water and give birth to
Come spring then blossoming into summer?

Until we know Nature’s energetic balance of
masculine and feminine at Spring Equinox
Tis the season to remember to balance work and play
Not forgetting the importance of rest and down time

May we heed the spirit of the holidays
without getting lost in the mania of consumerism

Are you doing your part to assist civilization within your own environment?

We temper our sexuality and emotional darker edges

Are you adequately expressing your sexuality?

Please consider lightening up with humor and empathy

With meditation, we enter into a judgment free zone
Where we remember our old selves
by walking in the footsteps of our past lives

Are you honoring what this civilization has given you?

Picture fading old trails of multinational corporations
Greedily protecting good old boy maximum economic profits . . .
Growing into New Earth friendly businesses of sustainable harmonic living
in political alignment with Nature

Instead of getting sucked into the excitement of a potential opportunity
Consider sitting with that feeling and watch the impulse to act pass by for a spell

Are you feeling unsure or indecisive about which direction to take your life?

We have discussed the interplay between order and chaos
Is sacrificing our freedom worth the security of a police state?

When we practice letting-go of our attachments
We get in touch with our deeper soul light
that radiates outward for others to experience

King of the Mountain Lion represents the gentle roar of leadership
Leaving behind power without force in its tracks
Sometimes, being a leader means silently relishing in the growth of others

Climbing the final leg of the trail
Head on with graceful powerful balance of mind-body-spirit
Brings powerful intention into our physical world

Darkness ascends on the Winter Solstice meeting its zenith
Also coming soon we become a New Moon beacon of light
Resurrecting Christ Consciousness in our souls symbolizing new beginnings

Responsibility is a panic-free zone
Awakening to the ability to respond to any given situation

Do you remember the power of our tribal African shamanic brothers and sisters?
Fly away and meditate on the elemental forces of water and darkness for a spell . . .

How many times have we feared our own primal, dark and feminine nature?

The power of the internal martial arts is cultivated gradually
A cumulative effect of simmering softness of Yin energy

Particularly in America . . .
The heat of race relations is rising to the surface again
As is class consciousness and a desire for protective security
Stoking our embers and trigger points

Have you bought into learned helplessness
Or do you see an opportunity for transformative healing?

Yes, in terrorist fashion this land was squatted from our indigenous people
and then free labor was unjustly imported from the Motherland
And still today, a greedy minority balks at playing fair ball

We have discussed in this blog that the
dominant majority prefers to go unexamined
Picture the leaders of the Empire
coming clean and welcoming the rest of us to the bargaining table
in the spirit of trust and authenticity

But getting stuck in our own hate will consume us
so that we feed off this energy like the Walking Dead
Cannibalistic as that might sound
We are what we eat – spiritually speaking

We need to release our hate and set ourselves free of the bondage of slavery
Economic strangulation and unequal access to resources is a form of genocide

Our subconscious minds are lulled into repetitive negative thoughts
But we have the power replace our cognitive distortions
with simple positive affirmations
Believe in and feel them walking into our Being

We are mindful and diligent in our daily footsteps
Helping our Planetary and Universal consciousness internalize
a positive New Earth worldview
Becoming the change we want to see in the world

A Full Cold Moon rests deeply within our bones
Sitting along the horizon more than other Full Moons today
Highlighting shorter days and longer nights

What are you thankful for and what do you need to release and let go of?

May Deer’s energetic medicinal teachings of grace, loveliness and sensitivity
Gently guide us through open fields of ceremonial tribal rituals

Do you need more beauty in your life?

Take in a deep breath of cold wind
and then exhale a warm and caring summer breeze

Remember when Buddha first taught in a deer park?

Tis the season for Divine communion and venturing out into new adventures
Blend in like Deer by never following the same trail twice
Good medicine for plasticity of the mind
May your sacred space lead you to new frontiers every time you meditate

Do you need to develop self-discipline, consistency and concentration?

We are embarking toward peaking darkness
Climaxing on forthcoming Winter Solstice

Come on down into our souls ladies and gentlemen
while listening to attached emotions of those in your orbit
Inspiration to develop keen hearing and discernment
through heightened sense of smell

Are you paying attention to your inner thoughts and perceptions?

Meditation on an anything is possible mantra is an optimistic thought
Great Spirit is calling us from the top of Sacred Mountain
Use our power of being soft and gentle like water to inundate
even the archetypal monster of fear that wants to block us from
our Divine crystalline souls

Today’s monster of fear includes systemically connected
climate catastrophe, rural poverty,
starvation and food and water wars among other looming disasters
But so are the solutions to weather these demons
in sustainable ways that are in alignment with Nature

Are you or others trying to force things?

Make love not war with the devilish fashion of negative thinking
Strike a chord of unconditional love rather than
getting strung-out on attachments that aren’t music to our ears

Are you being too critical and uncaring of yourself?

Remember to stick to the facts
When speaking your truth
But please be careful not careless with your whispers
Sometimes, silence is a more powerful form of intimate communication

Do you need to cultivate more empathy, gentleness or compassion for others?

Movers and shakers must compassionately enact the political will to
tip the scale in the right direction toward
a more effective transition into a New Age and Paradigm
This process awakens when elected officials serve the overwhelming majority by
promoting the “general welfare” of our global tribe

Nobody is inferior or superior to another
We are all cut from the same cloth
Merely different shades and statures on an unfolding tapestry

Our Mother is getting hotter and it is time to cool it now yo

At the end of the day . . .
Regardless of classification
We are all The Color of Water

See you further on up the trails,

Ari
