Cheers to welcoming a New Year!
Enter in 2017 – on the Gregorian calendar at least

Seal breathes in fresh air into the dark chambers
of the cold, dark waters of our collective soul . . .

Lucid dreaming awakens primal creative elemental forces
symbolic of water and feminine, yin energies

A Full Wolf Moon is coming soon . . .
Before long, it will become the Chinese New Year of the Rooster . . .

What does your inner wolf and rooster need to make friends with right now?

Part of anxiety is blocked energy that wants to express itself through creativity
Another piece is letting go of judgments that charge the ego’s grip

But you can listen to the voices of anxiety with an open and passive attitude

The chattering monkey can become theater, and you can find humor in
the attack of the nervous woodland creature energies

In the Northern hemisphere, our days are getting a little brighter
until light and dark are equal again on Spring Equinox in March

And then light will peak on the Summer solstice in June . . .
Festivities are alive, and energies are expressed outward in community

At that point, masculine energies are dancing vibrantly again, while
falling back in equal rhythmic alignment with feminine on Autumn equinox in September . . .

Here in America, are we not still fighting and struggling to let go of
issues related to taxation with(out) representation?

This marks for a nation of millions peppered with blue states versus red states . . .

Such a Uzi scenario of marketed, mixed martial arts messages and
polarizing allegiances, merely reflecting opposite sides of the same coin

Inherent in colonial roots, slave-trade politics is unearthed . . .

A developmentally delayed electoral college swaddled in its
comfort zone is apparently secured

Does that formidable system not still seek to divide and conquer
the privileged few from the overwhelming majority?

Does the market not take stock in what supports the greater good?

How will our new president-elect
Donald Trump handle the challenges faced by the herd?

Tis the season for outside the box thinking to awaken creative,
new ways of working together

Mercury in Retrograde helps us revisit old connections . . .

Hopefully an opportunity for us to rework past tense dysfunctions
into healthy novel scripts

Use the energies of the New Year to let go of your projections . . .

May we allow ourselves to focus on our close encounters
with the many blessings flying around our energies fields!

Yes, Winter is in full swing . . .

But Groundhog Day is right around the corner with a friendly reminder that
the seeds underground will be starting to think about waking up then

See you further on up the trails,

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,

Ari

Chinese astrological legend posits that Rat was the first
to arrive among the 12 animals that heeded Buddha’s call

Are you aroused by a sweet and spirited
fragrance fueling your olfactory senses?

May has blossomed from a most powerful
Flower Full-Bellied Wesak Moon
Sowing the seeds of Love over us last Sunday
Shining the Light of compassion onto our World

Let it Be that the
Love of Mother Mary and Christ Consciousness
Shine sunlight onto shadowy planetary dark edges

On this Sunday, what better a day to honor
the Sacred Feminine Energy on Mother’s Day!
Thank you Mother Earth for giving us a home to live on
May we rekindle our commitment to live in harmony with You again

The Empire has studied rats and applied Its scientific observations
on the psychology of humanity
The shroud of the Dark Side of social science has used this knowledge to
manipulate and control the masses to keep us in hibernation

But if you look behind Imperial smokescreens and propagated patriotism –
Your spiritual gait will not be deflated and your footing will remain secure

Humanity is on the cusp of an eye-opening
evolutionary impulse to wake-up from a hypnotic trance and
Re-member our spiritual Nature

The Old Guard is afraid to let go of Its grip

A New Hope of Divine marital vows is lightening-up –
Keeping the flame lit with peaceful internal cohabitation

Masculine and Feminine energies live in domestic partnership
Dancing together in an egalitarian Tango

On the surface, many folks sound the alarm and hit the panic button
when they notice a rat or some other pest
nervously exploring their environment

Are you not handling the pests in your life properly?
What mirror are they holding up for you to self-examine?

Beyond a cursory glance or an attachment to a rigid perspective . . .
Might we observe a window into a deeper perceptual reality –
waiting to be explored?

It is easier to stop at the judgment and hold a fixed idea or position . . .

“Good fences make good neighbors”
Get that varmint off my property line!
Asserts the programmed “voice in the head”

But are you shrewd enough to sniff out the challenge and opportunity to
aggressively dig a little deeper to spring the traps
of your protective scar tissue and psychic defenses?

Success, restlessness and shrewdness are the ways of Rat Medicine
As are sociability and adaptability part of their daily vitality

Rat guides us into industry and cooperative efforts in community
Just waiting to flower across the fruited plain of humanity

“Become the change you want to see in the world”

See you further on up the trails,

Chickadees are fearless peaceful warriors
Their small stature is met with thunderous lightning
revealing the power of bystanders –
“If you see something, say something”

Singing cheerful songs unlocking Truth in a key that is safe to our ears

A Powerful Pisces New Moon with Vernal Equinox
Illuminates a natural embodiment of energetic gender equality
Remember to stand in your own personal authority

Now masculine-yang is beginning to assert his sunlight
Echoed by a powerful Pisces New Moon amplifying feminine-yin dark nights
during this Spring Eclipse Season

A Critical Mass can tip the scales and will come about
Hopefully smooth sailing is your preferred navigational method –
even during dark and stormy weather fronts

But new portals of light want to shine on our consciousness
Like Snake, it is time to shed our old skin
May we breathe in fresh new air of inner peace
and then exhale deadened stagnant air that suffocates

Black caps symbolizes intellect and higher level thinking

We are a diversified and unified portfolio
Sharing equal slices of humble pie
Divergent expressions of Great Spirit

When we look through a lens of equality
We honor and respect each other’s diversity in unity

Expanding our consciousness to rise above the
gravitational pull of the material realm

Regardless of maturation –
Transformation is awaiting resurrection
Let us know adaptability within seasonal mutability

Movement into a New Age
Springs into action
an intentional reworking of success

New economies and novel ways of thinking
are cogs in rebalancing new wheels of equanimity within worldly powers
A New Earth is being born and ready to take flight

We don’t need the privileged powerful positions of authority
to tell us what is in our best interests anymore

Remember that boxes of rain
clear stagnant dirty waters away
that spring forth floral bouquets
in colorful arrangements of
little greenhouses for you and me

May we wake up expecting synchronicity
Dream woven into our waking reality

Meditation in Nature will reveal intrinsic security
Reflecting back to you in your outer world
When you are calm with an open-passive attitude of trust and empathic curiosity

See you further on up the trails,

How do we get to the light without traversing the dark?
When pouncing into Spring light, we are re-working a cultural story
that preaches fear of darkness . . .

Black like Panther illuminates the dark side of the moon
and a shadowy memory of Winter’s TAPS.
A Full Moon wanes with promise of a New Moon shine o’er a watery bend.

Sitting with a metaphysically inner-world theatrical movie trailer . . .
Lights, Camera, Vision!
Clairaudient audio-clips from alternate realities amplifies
a deafening sound of silence . . . What?

Flexing our soulful mind-body-spirit muscles at will –
quantum leaps out of old boxed in mind-sets . . .
We leap into new frontiers as first and fastest responders.

Skin on skin heightened perceptual touch opens up
psychometric portals in consciousness.
Awakening feminine powers of passionate sensuality – isn’t that the cat’s meow?

Dionysus inspires us to embark through the heart of the dark night of the soul . . .
Releasing fears when remembering that
“jealousy, envy, criticism, and judgment are refuges”
to the energy of insecurity . . .

Awakening to a mythical heroic quest through resurrection.

Somewhat akin to when Apollo re-appears in Rocky’s life to help him reclaim
“the eye of the Tiger.”
With Panther’s help – we can always get it back.

See you further on down the trails,
Ari

world in me
world apart

holographic theory

now i see
you in me

equality in rising Northern Hemispheric light and fading dark
(corollary South of Equator)
and all oscillating shades of grey

channeling with Higher Self lights our way

remembering universal truths
making the greater empathic connections

my being is your being

diverse as our unified universe

a holographic representation
piecing together a puzzle

of who we really are
