The energy of Squirrel and Chipmunk reflect heightened activity levels right now
Last week’s waning Corn Moon reminds us that we sow what we reap . . .

The seasonal harvest is in . . .
Now is the time to think about preparing for winter supplies

Short term gains should not forget long-term returns!

Nature reflects balance on an arriving Autumnal Equinox . . .

Light and Dark energies will be equal, if only briefly then . . .

For our friends in the Southern hemisphere, it will be their Vernal Equinox
They will be climbing toward peak light on their Summer Solstice in December

Here in our neck of the woods, the Sacred Feminine will gain momentum on toward
December’s Winter Solstice, where we will coax back the light from dark nights

It’s natural to come down into our souls, quiet down, sleep, rest, meditate
and become further in touch with our darker emotions

Might as well lean into, and even embrace Nature’s rhythms if you can dig it

We have descended downward the mountain from
peak light on Summer Solstice . . .

Today, our journeys trek further into the dark with fading trail lights

Try to keep an open mind and heart on your travels . . .
Picture walking in the center of the circle with balanced footwork

Moving closer to love will help you stay further away from fear
Besides, it takes more energy to hate than to love

From this perspective, we allow the truth to set us free!

See you along the trails,

Ari

2017 the number!
Sound the trumpet of the Bald Eagle in thunder . . .

Tragic events like Hurricane Harvey,
and unexpected deaths of loved ones are hitting us hard

But the winds of Climate Change still ride the lightning and strike on rising waters

We all have to work together, and do our part in order to
Trump the Towers that Be . . .

From neurons to neighborhoods,
we are moving into a new frontier of we consciousness

Here in this hard land,
we must move forward by enduring painful tragedies of life . . .

A dirge moves toward the Autumn Equinox, while
songs of waning life, death and dying are blowing in the wind . . .

Survivors guilt always circles around our hearts,
and crops up in our souls . . .

Might as well give ourselves permission to grieve
by leaning into any uncomfortable feelings . . .

May we be guided into illuminating our better angels of compassion and empathy,
given any unwanted emotions we might be experiencing intensely right now

It is harder to hide now from facing the sobering uncertainties of life,
that are magnified by the lack of control that can level our conscious minds . . .

Grandfather Sun is always with us,
even as dark nights move closer in from a shady horizon

It takes a leap of faith to walk into the uncertainty of Infinity . . .
Spirit has a Divine Plan that we might as well surrender to

Picture an eagle’s talons to strengthen your personal authority so that you can
balance earth’s gravitational pull with your free-spirited creative energy

Release any feelings of having clipped wings that hold you back
and welcome your feet anchored in the ground!

Till the next trailhead,

Out of the soulful black matter of creation
the magical powers of Raven are born . . .

Feminine powers of darkness are gaining momentum now
Pretty soon, we will turn our clocks back yinward

Light and dark energies will dance in alignment on
Autumn Equinox later on in September . . .

Do you feel the subtle changes in the air?
Temperatures are beginning to cool down

The increased nervous industry of squirrels and chipmunks right about now
Reminds us that it is time to get back to school, and back to business

You can mix business with pleasure
Raven sees the mystery with a keen spiritual eye

Spirit is everywhere . . .
Whistling in the wind, and sitting on mountaintops

All you need to do is ask for help
Be clear in your mind and your heart

And then allow yourself to receive . . .

Magic arrives when you remember to breathe, and empty your mind
The birth of relaxation can return to you in the death of another stressful moment

There is no utopia, as Rome wasn’t built in a day . . .

But the time is now to dig deep, and
unearth your own inner peace within . . .

You can do this by adjusting yourself on the inside
by taking the fight out of it, and letting go of outcome

There is magic in letting go of the ends justifying the means
stuck energies of fixed mind kind of thinking . . .

Try to remember this during Mercury in retrograde
during the spacing, and zoning out of rational/logical mental faculties

Instead of trying to figure it all out, or letting these breakdowns drive you nuts –
Just breathe, and go with flow . . .

Instead of challenging others by getting into power struggles . . .
Make meaningful connections!

This is how we co-create Heaven on Earth

Till the next trail head,

Ari

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

Catbird cultivates effective communication through language,
albeit words without respect sometimes get lost in translation . . .

Express yourself in a way that is seen and heard!

Speaking from a personal place of power reveals a commanding presence

But a verbal delivery that resonates in a burning heart
lights up fiery vibes of strength and intelligence . . .

Catbird’s melodious meow sings from a soulful place

May we watch enticements that call for aggressive reactions –
Instead, choose a response from an inner space of calm

Forthcoming astrological eclipses in August
ignite energetic opportunities to flip geo-scripts

Might as well give a peaceful conversation on the inside a chance
Whilst at the same time becoming the change you want to see in the world . . .

Talk soon,

Ari

A Full Buck Moon entered into our skies earlier today . . .

Snake slithers out of its dark hole in a spirited way,
coming out of the closet into the light of day . . .

Like primal emotions that get triggered right about now

What feelings are simmering beneath the surface of your defense mechanisms –
waiting to jump out of the deeper waters of your soul?

Metaphorically, our old world is shedding old skins of toxicity . . .

Each and every one of us must release scar tissue that no longer
serves nor protects our sleepwalker ability
to pass through life in a hypnotic trance

Simultaneously, we are awakening to the healing tonic of the snake bite

What layers are we ready to let go of during the intense storms of a
forthcoming August astrological eclipse season?

Do we need more economic strangulation, military might
and escalating violence to wake us up?

How will your relationships with self and others transform and
realign their maps during these blowing winds of change?

In the Northern Hemisphere, summertime is in the air
Social activity and community connections are alive and free-spirited

Summer Solstice’s summit is fading into the backdrop . . .

Believe it or not, we are slowly making our way down the mountain
toward balanced light and dark forces again on Autumn Equinox in late September

Then after that, the dark night of feminine yin energies
will rise until Winter Solstice in December . . .

In truth, know that we are all diverse expressions of Oneness –
We belong to an interconnection that binds us in the
open arms of a loving Cosmic Consciousness

See you up the trails,

Ari

Opossum and Skunk are sensible reminders for mindfulness
in the areas of respecting personal boundaries

How many of us say we want to be seen and heard?
But when push comes to shove, that desire does take magical wizardry
In the sense of spiritual intention and commitment . . .

It’s easier to manipulate others and fool yourself into buying
into the smoke and mirrors of a manmade fun house

On the other hand, playing games without even realizing it
is just part of learning how to be human

Ignorance may be bliss, but we might as well
see the eminence front for the put-on as it is

The spiritual journey is a playground . . .

You have an opportunity to flirt with growing pains
but hopefully without choosing strategic diversions that bring on more suffering

Consider listening instead to internal sound waves encouraging
you to hear amplified acoustics of your personal growth

Do this without second guessing your intuitive knowing . . .

Cross over the fence to the love and truth
of your soul’s naturalistic development

Even in the gravely sobering realm of stoic seriousness
There is a court jester that plucks at your heartstrings

How do we make friends with that?

On this Father’s Day, may we know welcome the peak sunlight
of yang’s outward movement . . .

But let us remember the balance of the sun and the moon –
equality between masculine and feminine energies are always in flux

Picture Nature’s theatrical revelation of equal energetic alignment
on Spring and Fall Equinoxes

Sunlight hits its zenith this week on Summer Solstice . . .

And yet, dark days are simmering within inner cauldrons
Until reaching their summit on the forthcoming Winter Solstice in December

Till the next trailhead junction,

Ari
