Herring soars into soulful skies again –
echoing Sea Gull sounds of symbolic subtleties in communication . . .

A Pisces New Moon breathes in
incoming energies of Mercury in Retrograde, and Spring Equinox

In a few days, light/dark/masculine/feminine/yin/yang energies
will be together again in natural equality . . .

Yet it also feels like an endless
Winter replay during this seasonal transition

Hard to believe spring fever will be in the air again,
whilst fragrant flowers are blossoming as we speak . . .

Old networks of friendships and other relationships are coming back to visit

Part of mindfulness is noticing body language,
and other non-verbal ways of communicating with each other

Inner peace and happiness are not without remembering
the depth of deep soul wounds that bring back hurt feelings

Forgiveness starts with your own healing . . .
It doesn’t have anything to do with someone else really

But anger is a natural emotion offering
opportunities for deeper examination

When you choose to not take the happenings around us personally,
you end up feeling more empowered and less swayed by the ways of the world

Beneath life’s herrings, Nature reveals to us opposites are everywhere . . .

Sometimes, silence is a higher spiritual form of communication
But paradoxically, so is speaking your truth, and standing up for what is right

Meditation on opening our mouths to releasing spirit,
while closing our mouths to holding spirit in . . .

This is a conversational exchange between order and chaos!

Dolphin guides our souls through the wake of a waning Full Worm Moon . . .

The early bird might get the worm, but the madness of March
won’t be without schools of opportunities for sound production

This Pisces time of year inspires dreamy meditation –
while at the same time, we need to sit with grounded mental clarity

We’ll need our feet on the ground during the changing directional winds,
and cloudy days that fog our perceptions

Swimming through life’s waters with sonar precision,
gives us mindful and balanced agility between our heads and hearts . . .

May Dolphin spray spiritual tonic into rational-emotive waterways
How do you feel about how you think about your actions, or the actions of others?

Picture a Dolphin to help you communicate effectively
Knowing when to speak and when to listen are part of spiritual watching

What are you doing to express yourself with
sensuality, creativity, and passion?

A gentle and soft approach to communication is a mystical vibration

Borrow Dolphin’s superpowers of sonar to hear truth versus illusion,
because your uniqueness has its place in group consciousness!

Outer directed projections are suffocated by the undertow of judgements . . .

Dolphin is a friendly reminder to become deep belly breathing to relax
fixed states of mind that suffocate you from being sprung into deeper truths!

Spring Equinox is flowing downstream,
and arriving around the river bend in a couple of weeks . . .

Otter can facilitate a sweet sense of surrender,
and relax control issues between tension of energetic opposites . . .

A Full Worm Moon arrives on Thursday
Daylight Savings Time is coming soon down the pike

Spring Equinox is also arriving in the coming Pisces tides of March

Masculine and Feminine energies will dance together in equanimity . . .
Shouldn’t that be a good role model enacted by humanity?

Freeing our minds from our likes and dislikes helps heal our
natural human tendency to move away from what we
don’t want versus moving toward what we want more of

Just empathize for a moment that the gaining popularity of
the GLBTQ modern label is nothing new from the perspective of our
collective consciousness, sentient being history!

It’s just outside the box from a cookie cutter, Americancentric perspective

Consider meeting both opposite sides of the same coin with
an aware/soft mind, let it be, and let it go . . .

Cultivating sound mental health is a process of letting go of our
preferred/non-preferred experiences, yet responding to awareness instead of
reacting to our reality-based judgements

If only we meet our challenges with an aware opportunity of a soft mind,
a puncture-proof spirit of letting go, and be open to whatever
it is we are experiencing with love, and compassionate kindness . . .

But seasons don’t come and go in concrete steps in Nature
Her feminine power isn’t always cut and dry like that

The universal Law of Impermanence merely reflects Nature’s Way
that the only constant is change

An old meditative mantra of let it be and this too shall pass is good medicine
to remember always, but especially during energetic seasonal transitions

Otter, like Dolphins know how to be playful,
even when minding their daily business affairs

Our pleasures, aches, pains and injuries
will die just like we will someday . . .

May we all do the best that we can

Otters reflect relaxation as a balanced approach to work and play
Are you able to whistle while you work?

We suffer because we tend to forget living in harmony with the
changing seasons of life, which often results in fights . . .

But Otter reminds us it’s about how we flow with the fluid sensational waters of life

The gravitational pull of our world is heavy and serious enough . . .
But don’t let that take away your right to experience enjoyment

Goliath is a metaphor in our old testament consciousness that is
even more proliferated and pronounced in our world today

Just look at the NRA as part of the big business strangulation
of our sovereignty by the miserly ways of the Powers that Be

Mental illness is about doing the same thing over and over,
and expecting different results

But genuflection to the better devil you know mind-set is comforting,
even if toxic and against your own self-interest . . .

At the end of the day, nobody really benefits from a maximum economic
profit off of sickness, and death,
albeit under the guise of protection and security . . .

Is American ready to become an embodiment of showing a moral responsibility
to provide equal pay/livable wages, universal health care, and
a built-in emphasises on vacation/leisure/free choice time
to create your own self-determined experiences?

Or is that perspective only reserved for those that work hard within the
entitled, privileged inner circles of the minority of the opulent?

In this waning New Moon and Chinese-Lunar Year . . .

May we allow Dog to guide us with faithful loyalty . . .
Serving as protection us in this 2018 year ahead

Winter is here, but Spring’s beauty is just around the corner

What is real, and what is normal?

Is normality a manic stock market, bloated military-industrail complex,
coupled with a profiling notion that there is winner/losers,
and you get what you deserve?

Does that kind of status quo, business as usual mind-set sound nuts to you?

Can you imagine what our planet would look like without big monied peddled
corporate products, and weaponry that are intellectually
designed with the intent to kill capacity crowds of Earth’s creatures at large?

Talk about wrestling our planetary consciousness into
a body slam that puts global politics in a systemic sleeper hold!

That being said, I can appreciate Dog’s unconditional
patient, and kind understanding of human shortcomings . . .

Regardless of past abuses, dogs don’t stop coming back or
quit teaching us about meditation on trust

It almost makes you think we are descendants of their kind,
and that we have their traits encoded in our DNA

Are we barking up similar trees?

May the energies of an early Spring astrological eclipse season
help you move into the change you want to see in the world!

Won’t be long before masculine/feminine/yin/yang/light/dark
energies are equal again in both hemispheres . . .

Our friends in the South understand Autumn energies are kicking in –
where they will be moving further into the dark

But in the North, we’ll be moving toward the light,
where an action-oriented catalyst provides incentive for crocuses to spring up!

Last year was the Chinese Year of the Rooster . . .

In that reflection, we are reminded of the truth that if you are focusing
on the real tragedies of last year, then you will accurately see
the glass as half full, if not already empty on the inside and out!

But here’s an optimistic thought . . .

What happens when you look through a lens of Love?

Even if you can entertain the possibility that Rooster
also brought us the Sun, then you can see that consciousness
sheds its light on our planetary darkness

By allowing ourselves to see through the lens of Love,
we are able to call out the light illuminating the shadows

Keep in mind, we are in a Yin time of year
Dark emotions come up, and many souls have left our Home

But water is powerful feminine energy that breathes in
opportunities for creativity and meditative spirituality

Might as well say yes to that, unless you prefer to persist what you resist
That is a choice too, if you so choose!

When we traverse the dark night of our soul
We can come out of the ashes into a New Self

Disguised within every ending, new beginnings are awakening

In a month from last Tuesday’s waning New Moon
We will be tracking the Year of the Dog

Spring Equinox may not arrive till about a
month after that in later March . . .

But energetically, with an astrological spring eclipse season happening now,
a Full Snow Moon at the end of January, and the Imbolc signaling the halfway point
between Winter and Spring on February first . . .

From that perspective, Spring is already in the air!

Will the Groundhog see his shadow on
the resurrection of Groundhog Day?

Take the plunge with Seal into the darker depths of the ocean . . .
Welcome a vortex of primal creative waters pouring into our souls

A New Moon arrives on January 16th –
Let these energies be a catalyst for the waves of new year energies in Nature

A Chinese-Lunar New Year of the Dog rolls in about a month after that . . .
Time to build empathy in our heads and hearts for human shortcomings

Rising above the surface of a world of madness,
breathes in fresh air into suffocating old life support systems

Something new and different is waiting to be born into our collective consciousness

Analysis paralysis is like Groundhog Day revisited –
you get what you are, albeit aggravated by
recurring disappointments and let downs

Sometimes, you just got to flip the script and let the chips fall where they may
Tomorrow never knows where the winds of change might blow

So, if global markets tank, and sure thing predictions
were to fade away into dark nights . . .

What good would it do for you to stress out and worry about it?

We have been programmed to fear the unknown and what is uncertain
We have all been subject to systemic propagandizing
about the better the devil you know kind of memes . . .

Is that so?

Letting go of control issues is good for personal empowerment!
Surrendering to the will of the Universe reawaken a renewed sense of choice

What creative new envisioning to you have in your mirror of your mind?

A Western New Year approaches, as does a
Full Wolf Moon at the beginning of January . . .

Let us heed the echoes of Wolf’s heartbeat!
Tracking into February, comes the arrival of the Chinese/Lunar New Year of the Dog

Meditate on the spiritual energy of Dog to walk into new energies –
that awakens pathways into a deeper compassion for all of humanity,
in spite of our human shortcomings that bubble up in our wake . . .

Consider taking your repeated exposure to your:

hate-oriented images of Donald Trump, a miserly Wall Street,
reptilian minded friends in Congress
(that metaphorically represent an obsessive, manipulative, controlling, and
down right abusive dying old world power structure that pits us against one another)

And replacing them instead:

With new pictures of Love and Light!
At the end of the day, that’s how we disarm the Beast as within, so without

Let us heed the call to scale back the toxicity of a dog eat dog mentality,
and seductive militaristic fantasies of a global fascist state

Not Israel, nor any other single nation-state should be designated as an
offshore base or be given preferential capital for global supremacy!

We should all be getting the message of oneness,
and equal opportunity in a multi-polar new world!

Everyone’s intrinsic talents should be
cultivated and developed to their fullest potential

But not at the expense of stepping on someone else who falls through the cracks!

Violence, and security systems that build walls that prohibit freedom of speech,
Should be examined with a reflective, and heartfelt intellectual examination . . .

Our world, and one’s personal spiritual evolution depends on
self-reflection, and forward free-thinking!

May this New Year bring you much wellness, inner joy, following your bliss,
a relaxation on ego-driven emotional reactions, and a forgiving attitude
to inspire our planet, and universal consciousness!
