Cat’s are reminders of adolescence . . .
Their presence is curious, and can be difficult to anticipate

They are difficult to outwit, and nearly impossible to herd!

Creative feminine yin pounces mysterious
energetic wave pulsations, not without more natural disasters

And things heating up on the planet in general!
But in these dark times, we might as well awaken Cat’s capacity
to see well when the lights are out

Many people are feeling like things are spinning out of control

More storms are brewing as we move deeper into Climate Change . . .
These are the days of the New Normal

People who lived in the 60s and didn’t miss it,
understand that today is like then on steroids . . .

Cats show us how to be both relaxed,
yet alert and oriented at the same time

The old world can remind us to suck it up,
especially when faced with great obstacles

Everybody do this by loving yourself,
and others as much as possible . . .

Picture becoming like the power of water . . .
A gentle, and soft dead calm of a deep ocean

See and hear this mantra cradling your soul in
the form of a safe womb-like setting

A Full Harvest Moon yield’s its crop on October 5th

Become aligned with Nature, and reap Her bountiful blessings
Rather than resisting the apparent curses of Her changing seasons

Till the next trail head,

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,

Crows work together with watchful eyes
Their alert and wary energy symbolizes clear views of the horizon

They remind us that “today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday”

What messages are on their way for you to receive?

Time to recycle familiar infiltrated trash piles
to transform into renewal energy during a darkening moon

We are moving further away from Fall . . .
Days are fading into primordial darkness –
in a black like Crow kind of way

The Samhain marks mid-point between Autumn Equinox and Winter Solstice

Before too long –
The Winter Solstice will be here in the Northern Hemisphere
Our darkest day of the year before we begin to coax back the light

Seasons hold up mirrors revealing that
everything is transitory and ephemeral

In much the same way as our world is evolving . . .

Fossilized old world coins printed in a business as usual love story
Will crystallize into an egoless new world economy

Time to open your hearts to the idea of investing in loss
to cash in on win-win outcomes measured by the
exponential growth of getting what you no longer want

The time is now to honor the spirits of our ancestors
and let go of yesterday’s old wounds

May we give back the baggage that was handed down to us
and ask them to lighten their load by shedding dead skin
so they may walk in the light

Spirituality transcends physical laws
By bending the will of materialism

Peering into our shadow sides
Illuminates a pathway into our soul’s den to awaken creativity

Darker months give us the opportunity to see that
creation is born out of the feminine womb of life

Do you see the mystical and magical opportunities
for creativity in your daily routine?

See you further on up the trails,

Guardian Hawk swoops in with a fresh look
At the visionary power of a New Moon this week . . .

Symbolically connecting us to new beginnings as new moons do

Autumn Equinox and a string of powerful
Supermoons have fleetingly eclipsed our soulful travels –

Now we are falling back onto a recent memory of
balance between light and dark energies . . .
Synchronizing with Mercury going back direct at the tail end of last week

Clarity resumes as the fog lifts in tandem with
the thinning of the veils before our eyes . . .

Twilight approaches as the ghosts of yesteryear reawaken spirited conversations

Hawk awakens our perception to gain a bird’s-eye view of
Nature’s offerings of signals that become intuitively
obvious when we are paying attention

A dying old world lives as
A parallel New Earth is being born out of the Phoenix Rising

Do you walk around with a yoke around your neck for a sense of security –
Or are you able to go within and hover in your own personal authority?

Do you understand the space where true freedom resides?

It cannot be known without accepting the responsibility that follows in its wake

While Mouse might inflate the minutia of a magnifying glass
Hawk sees through a wide-angle lens –
Without pole-vaulting over mouse turds

Belief in the magic of everyday life –
Helps us overcome our challenges and obstacles

Alternative solutions not yet perceived are wanting to become obvious
We are moving away from action-oriented yang into more inner directed yin
As the darkness of feminine energetics gains momentum

Stay alert and trust your intuition to read the omens to light your way
Hawk helps us rise toward our ascension –
into higher perspectives in our consciousness

What signals are being sent to you to point you in the direction
of moving closer toward your soul purpose?

Time to focus up and relax on distractions that take away from your soul promptings

Temperance . . .
Moderation is merely a harmonic convergence of
“one foot in spirit, one foot in ground”

Upper levels of consciousness take flight

Hawk levies a flood of creative-psychic energies . . .
Without being swept off your feet in this sensuous Universe

Open up to new ways to approach old challenges

Be careful of what you say, how you say it and who you say it to
because Hawk medicine carries the power to crush or kill those in your path
if you throw caution to the wind

The old ways are not working anymore . . .

Given underlying resentments regarding the offshore US military base of Israel,
the build-up of an American police state or a frightened and armed American public

There are too many stray guns and bullets on the streets –
Coupled with easy access to concealed weapons, limited social skills
and proliferating undiagnosed and untreated mental illness . . .

This Imperial witches brew is a dark cauldron that increases the likelihood of violence

The metaphor here is that we all need to feel a sense of belonging
and learn how to effectively emote

Be mindful of how your actions may speak louder than words
and how they might impact another

A Full Worm Moon passed us by last week
Like Nature’s outwardly changing seasons
Our energetic tides ebb and flow internally

Herrings help us see the subtleties of communication
So that we become adept at reading what is
flying below the radar in our social environment

Genuine respect is a key ingredient to being a well-versed social animal
Our Divine constitution is awakened in this location

As shoreline birds,
Gull teaches us to see the writing on the wall and read between the lines

In between land and sea, shorelines are of places of great magic and mystery
Ordinary spaces between our busy events are wanting to be seen as extraordinary

Do you hear John Lennon’s voice fly in from the Dreamtime,
“Life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans.”

Are you willing to sail away from an old hard land
and take a leap of faith onto the shores of a fluid New World?

Seagulls remind us that reality has both surface and depth

Powerful energies are intensifying and arriving through our perceptual pathways
Like when light is let in to brighten up a dark room
We don’t always like what we see

Meditation on allowing the sunlight to illuminate the shadows
is good medicine right now

When navigating elemental forces of land and air . . .
We need to learn to swim and fly
in the multidimensional waters and skies of Life

Body language is the psychology of communication
If we are what we eat and appetite comes with eating
Then may we drink in Herrin’s teachings to stimulate a healthy diet
to clean up the ecology of our daily lives

“The personal is the political”

Whether bleeding from our deepest cuts or flesh wounds
The time is now to release and let go of our old pains

Might as well weather our shifting fronts with transformational grace

Stay alert, stay aware and be present with what is
Try not to get sucked into the control dramas of others
Or your own insidious anxieties and chattering repetitive mental tapes

Be a spiritual watcher of yourself
We are aware that we are aware

A fortress around your heart might appear to serve as protection
from being stoned by others living in glass houses

But do you believe that the sweet surrender of vulnerability
will be held up by Universal pillars of Love and Truth
while holding a firm foundation of personal and cosmic intimacy?

Crows sit all along the watchtower in large flocks of communal roosts
A symbolically predictive omen for changing weather patterns

Further movement into a New Earth previews trailers of clearer forecasts
Revealing that we are all One

Connecting the loose threads of our multidimensional heartstrings
Striking a chord that we are all in this together

Meditation on the Law of Impermanence
Reminds us that everything is transitory and ephemeral

Is it a time for you to begin a new course of study?

Fireside storytelling awakens the flames of shared human experiences
Breathing in Samhain marks mid-point between Autumn air and Winter Solstice
A good time to honor our ancestors and exhale Karmic wounds of yesterday

Is a message on its way for you to receive?

Reflecting Nature’s intentional expression for letting-go
And feeling thankful for our vulnerability

Should you be more alert and wary?

Spiritual laws transcend physical laws
By bending the ways of our material world

Watching our shadow-side teachings remind us to attend to the nuts and bolts
Cultivating structure, consistency and predictability in our daily walk facilitates
Coming down into our souls from our high perches of observation

Try not to sweat the small stuff of nervous woodland creature energies

Creation is born out of the feminine womb of life
Master magicians see illusionary veils cloaking other realms
Mystical vibrations of co-creativity are woven into everyday life

Are you noticing everyday opportunities to make magic in your daily routine?

When sitting still in the driver’s seat
We keep our eyes on the horizon and in rearview mirror
Watching the wheels balancing in the eternal now

Picture a tree soaking in sun
Rooted deeply into our Earth’s dark soil
Together we stand in alignment with the elements

Shapeshifting ourselves into transformative inner peace
Shining intrinsic Divine Light onto our darker edges

Leave it to Full Beaver Moon this week to cue us to “set traps”
Before our internal swamps become frozen
Turning our clocks back yinward
In preparation for the cold by blanketing our souls with “warm winter furs”

Remembering when our soul power breathes effectively through our human voice
We are honoring every moment as a past teacher,
the living present as our creation
and the future as our inspiration

See you further on up the trails,

Cat’s medicinal power sees effectively in the dark night
Watching the veils thin before our eyes
Opening perceptual doors revealing our own Divine sunlight

A stinger of a Scorpio New Moon has passed us by
With seasonal reminders that everything old is new again

Now we pounce toward Halloween, All Saints Day and All Souls Day

Are you using your cat-like powers in a positive light?

Releasing old ghost stories gives birth to spirited new character development
Are your underlying emotional cards fanned out on the table?
Or are you hiding beneath tales from the crypt?
Dark emotions carry venom only when bottled up and then acted out in toxic ways

Cat’s eye can give you a glimpse into facing passed down fears from our ancestors
This is a good time of year to symbolically give back those inherited burdens
Through telepathic, prayer, meditation or visualization communication rituals

A quiet mind is an aware mind when calm and relaxed
Do whatever you can to conjure up inner peace

Feminine powers brew magical mystery tours
in mystically soulful cauldrons

Are life’s obstacles merely tricked treats cloaked in a brilliant disguise?

Being a leader affords wizardly empathic glimpses
into divergent viewpoints of our charges

Cat awakens paradoxical energies
Purring telepathic messages
Meowing that even a loner can become a social creature

Or are you like Dog and need to become more independent?
Do you need to become more discriminate in your choice of companions?

Are you weighed down by voices of guilt and resentments?
Replace them with a forgiving and compassionate heart

Setting an intention of mindful awareness in our daily doings
disassemble any robotic short circuits in our politics of living

Following downstream rivers of bliss
mirrors an outer fun house that won’t drive you mad

In spite of our circumstances or what we deem should or should not have happened
We remember to run the play and follow our shots
When Life deals us a full court press

See you further on up the trails,

Ari
