Loon kicks off a deep plunge into dark, mysterious waters of a Full Cold Moon
May Yang’s rising light warm you, beneath your blanketed Dreamtime covers

Last week, the energy of Groundhog tunneled through mid-field,
digging further into Spring Equinox, where light and dark are equal again

And then sunlight will peak on Summer Solstice in June
Picture a summer of love, and let cruelty relax our field of vision

May Loon help you scuba dive into the creative waters of transformation . . .
Reawaken old dreams, while envisioning novelty within everyday doings

Time to let go of old stories, and deeply engrained behavioral patterns
that no longer serve –

What pearls from the oysters can you retrieve from your scuba dives?

Yes, it’s a wild world out there . . .
But it is also a beautiful world!

Remember the mystic swims in the waters that crackpots drown in
Be mindful of your thoughts, and examine them through a gentle deer’ gaze

Loon signals a mysterious horn that lifts the fog if you let it
Be guided through the shady grey areas so they become clearer in your mind’s eye

At the end of the day, alternative energy starts with you!

See you further up the trails,

Hawk and a New Moon flew past us at the tail end of last week
Loon now chimes into our Dreamtime . . .

Mercury is in Retrograde again –

Offering a deepening appreciation for increased
communication breakdowns in logical and left-brain systems

Swimming with Loon guides us into intuitive streams of thought and
powerful currents of feminine waters, creative contemplations and meditations

Powers of lucid dreaming are stronger now

Groundhog Day and a Chinese New Year of the Monkey
Arrive in early February

By then, underground seeds of spring will begin subtly stirring

But for now, Loon guides us further into the waters of our souls
Singing resurface songs to free our submerged selves

Reawakening old wishes and dreams hoping to come up for air
Perhaps their energies have been caught up in underwater stagnation

Imaginative Dreamtime wants to illuminate their slumbering darkness

The old ways of the status quo are outdated roadmaps for new business

Death is in the air this time of year in the Northern hemisphere . . .

But death without dying through lucid dreaming is a real possibility
So there is no need to be spooked by the resurrection of old ghosts

Yes, our bodies will expire . . .
But they are vessels that require nurturing for safe travels
Might as well balance work, play, rest and diet is spiritual health for our souls

The death of Winter evokes a soul facing its ultimate mortality
Part of our work here is to soften our human attachments

May we relax our fear of aging, loss and dying!

See you onward up the trails,

Has anyone out there seen the American film classic, “On Golden Pond”?  Every time I see a Loon swimming on a body of water, I can still hear the Ethel in me saying, “look at the Loons, Norman, do you see the Loons?”  And while staying afloat on the waters of life, I sea my consciousness naturally expanding organically.  Loons are like miniature submarines and have the capacity to dive deep and stay under water for five minutes.  I wonder if liberally funded scientists of the military-industrial complex were inspired by Loons when they designed their underwater vessels?  I know it’s a developmentally delayed perspective to design clandestine weapons of mass destruction, but that’s what happens when We “go skating on the thin ice of modern life”, as Roger Waters sang a Loony Toon when he flirted with the blurring line between genius and insanity. 

Ah, Loons–don’t they remind Us of Our human power to dream lucidly and re-awaken old hopes, wishes and dreams?  Can’t You hear the Beatles earworm singing, “living is easy with eyes closed”?  Moreover, I have heard it said that “comfort is joy”, but isn’t it also true that ignorance is bliss?  Meditation on Loon medicine reminds Us to pay attention to Our dreams, even those We may have cleverly hidden, suppressed and/or repressed in Our hearts,  “ghettos of the mind” and the “Darkness on the Edge of Town”.  It is real that Our collective Nervous Woodland Creature energy might like to avoid looking at “what lies beneath”, in much the same way a Rat avoids leaving the comforts of his woodpile.  However, if We allow Our True Selves to look beyond the veil with a cursory glance, We just might notice what otherwise is revealed to Us when We choose to take the plunge into the unchartered depths of the Soul.  In this process, We are afforded the opportunity to explore gateways into other dimensions that stoke the primal embers burning within, that are otherwise missed in the robotic doings of everyday responsibilities. 

As We effectively transition into a New Age and Paradigm, I take notes from Loon as We swim away from a dying Pisces Age into an Aquarian Age.  I’ve heard it said that “Aquarius is about rebellion against how one is supposed to be, and it is anti ego. Aquarius hates tyranny and appreciates equality and freedom. Aquarius walks the thin line between genius and crazy and loves to travel the network of mind and intellect.”  For those of Us that feel particularly loony in normally mundane social situations, I encourage You to marinate on and digest what Loon has to teach You when you incrementally expose Your Self to situations that You may have previously avoided out of anxiety.  If only We allow for it, Loon has the potential to help Us decrease anxiety and increase One’s level of comfort as We crawl out of Plato’s Cave toward the light that illuminates the shadows.  In the spirit of that, please enjoy the energies of the New Moon in Aquarius and the fiery breath of the Chinese New Year of the Dragon on January 23, 2012.  In keeping my ear to the ground, I hear rumblings that it’s a good time to stay on track and reflect on where We are on Life’s map.

I Hopi You are well,

Ari
