Eclipse Season, A New Moon, Thinning Veils & A Portal Into Infinity

The energies of the Eclipse Season are happening and a new Election will happen on November 8.

As we have discussed in the blog before, the number 8 symbolizes the sign of Infinity, which is where the realm of possibilities reside.

In much the same way as the spiritual awakening of Inner Peace, Infinity is a vibrational shift and a dimension beyond the old world paradigm that we’ve all been conditioned to.

On October 25 beforehand, a solar eclipse will happen. This is also a New Moon in Scorpio. As we have discussed, solar eclipses invite creations of new beginnings and bright new opportunities, as New Moons always reflect.

It’s as if Scorpio’s energy takes a bite out of the present moment regardless of how much it stings. Their mantra reminds me of when our old football coaches would tell us to “play every down like it’s your last.”

Moreover, a lunar eclipse arrives on November 8, which is also a Full Beaver Moon. Lunar eclipses are more emotional and they bring on final endings, like the climax of emotional tides of Full Moons.

In the Universe’s energetic medicinal deck of cards, Eclipses are like powerful fanned out wild cards that inspire us to pay attention to areas in our life that need to change. They uproot us, surprise us, and light a fire under our asses.

During the intensity of Eclipses, our lives are rapidly shaken up so that we can transform into our new selves. The one constant of Eclipses is that they are change agents for rebirth. A death of the old self is taking place.

On some level, we’ve all been victimized by the internalized oppression of the Empire.

Shamans called our entanglement with the current matrix a collective nightmare, which is also akin to the world order that George Orwell’s book 1984 warned us about.

But remember that it doesn’t mean that we have to be victims.

Of course there is no Utopia or Dystopia because we are talking about an evolving living revolutionary reality that is based on an inside out approach.

Because there is nothing more devilish than fixed ideas and mental rigidity.

In the Aquarian Age, the key dynamic is for each one of us to discover our unique soul purpose and find ways to express that effectively within group consciousness.

May a living portal open up into the Tao centered politics of a New Aquarian Age, in the here and now of this Election season.

Even in darkness, there is light. In fact, our ancestors honored the darkest day of the year or Winter Solstice because it signals the time when we begin to coax back the light.

We talk a lot about our transition into a New Age and Paradigm in this blog.

Be reminded of one key element we want to bring with us from the old world is the Love and Light of Christ Consciousness and Buddha’s Compassion.

When these members of my spiritual light team were living as humans on this planet, they embodied these inner states of consciousness that many on the planet did not understand. Like back Zen, many folks right Tao are in the dark about this vibrational experience, if you’ll pardon the pun.

That’s OK, all you have to do is use your imagination by picturing your inner nobility in your heart and head. Focus on getting in touch with that feeling- maybe even by putting your hand on your heart if you that works for you.

Try not to fight or push away any unpleasant thoughts or otherwise. Just stay with them and be as gentle on yourself as possible with loving kindness. Realize that any thoughts you direct toward others are really directed at yourself. That’s why the person that you have held a grudge against or carried an attitude about ends up hurting you more than the person you are targeting.

Meditation on Beaver captures connections to the Freemasons, who were instrumental in the development of both Colonized America, as well as a powerful totem to Indigenous people beforehand.

Beavers symbolize the ability to traverse both terrestrial, watery worlds, craft secret tunnels and the awakening of perceptual doors.

The layout of the political center of Washington, D.C. reflects Beaver’s spiritual engineering guidance. Their capacity for building multiple exit strategies and navigating multiple dimensions hints at the multidimensionality of our experiences.

What other dimensional vibrations are we co-creating in this New Aquarian Age?

It is an interesting synchronicity that the New Moon in Scorpio, Full Beaver Moon and Eclipse Season intersects with the Samhain, All Soul’s Day, All Saint’s Day and The Day of The Dead at the end of October and beginning of November.

Of course the modern tradition of Halloween captures some of the spirit of our ancestors, who recognized that the veils between the physical and spirit realm appear thinner during this time.

The ritual of wearing masks is a spiritual portal into alternate realities in consciousness and transformation.

The thinning of the veils can play tricks on us. But it can be a real treat to reconnect with the spirits of our ancestors who have left this Earth.

As always, try not to get spooked by your fears because negative energies tend to feed off of that. Our fears can be seductive and not without their attachments.

Use the power of our ancestral energies to empower you to stay as close to Love as possible.

Pay attention to the signs and synchronicities to light your way and stay connected to Nature and in alignment with the Universe. May their Truth set you free.

Take care of yourselves everyone,

Ari

Letting Go Of Old Ghosts, A Full Hunter Moon, Eclipse Season And Gratitude For Spirits In The Material World

Photo by Kristen Bouse

Mercury In Retrograde ends on October 2, 2022. Reflecting back, our souls experienced a myriad of opportunities to review, re-process and re-program during this Twilight Zone rewind time.

During Mercury Retrograde, this writer was revisited by old bodily wounds that afforded him with a renewed opportunity for resistant free zones of being present, letting go and the gift of awareness. It’s less painful that way and we suffer less when we are in this space.

In much the same way as people and left brain faculties, it isn’t uncommon for machines to break down and amplify emotional intensity in the humans that rely on them.

For example, we had a particularly stressful day at the school that I work at recently. One of our coworkers just about blew her cork during an intersection between a student’s dysregulated behavioral episode that was amplified by a copy machine’s oppositional behavior.

But as we have discussed in this blog before, co-regulation is an empathic experience where humans can harmonize with their environments and support each other in relaxing.

Thankfully, my coworker friend used her words and stood in her personal authority by speaking her truth and letting go of it. Tempting as it was during that crazy train episode, I refrained from cracking any puns. Sometimes, silence is a higher form of honesty. Remember that inner peace is always a choice even amidst chaos. It is a dimensional shift.

Paradoxically, as the fog lifts after Mercury in Retrograde, our days will get darker as our clocks are turning back yin-ward. Peak radiant foliage brings leaf peepers throughout New England in early October, while November is typically the gloomiest month in Maine.

But it won’t be the darkest day of the year till the Winter Solstice in December, at least in the Northern hemisphere.

Furthermore, the Hunter’s Moon will reach peak illumination on Sunday, October 9. In Ojibwe, this moon is called the Freezing Moon, reflecting colder temperatures. This Hunter’s Moon always comes after the Harvest Moon, which is always closest to the Autumn Equinox.

Our ancestors understood this moon cycle signaled the time to go hunting in preparation for a long season of cold winter storage. Moreover, our animal friends understood that it is time to fatten up before winter.

Farmers cleaned out their fields under the brighter moonlight of the Harvest Moon. This gave our ancestors effective night vision to see the deer and other animals that came out to root through the remaining scraps. Also, it was easier to see foxes and wolves coming out to prey on them.

When I meditate alone in the woods, I reflect on Lao Tzu’s observation that “nature is the best physician.” There is magic in co-regulating with Mother Earth and we all win when we make this part of our sacred rituals.

Looking ahead, an October-November 2022 eclipse season will feature a partial solar eclipse on October 25, which is also a New Moon in Scorpio. Solar eclipses invite creations of new beginnings and bright new opportunities, as New Moons also reflect.

A total lunar eclipse arrives on November 8, which is also a Full Beaver Moon. Lunar eclipses are more emotional, for they bring on final endings, like the climax of emotional tides of Full Moons.

In the Universe’s energetic medicinal deck of cards, Eclipses are like powerful fanned out wild cards that inspire us to pay attention to areas in our life that need to change. They uproot us, surprise us, and light a fire under our asses.

During the intensity of Eclipses, our lives are rapidly shaken up so that we can transform into our new selves. The one constant of Eclipses is that they are change agents for rebirth. A death of the old self is taking place.

It is an interesting synchronicity that the New Moon in Scorpio, Full Beaver Moon and Eclipse Season intersects with the Samhain, All Soul’s Day, All Saint’s Day and The Day of The Dead at the end of October and beginning of November.

Of course the modern tradition of Halloween captures some of the spirit of our ancestors, who recognized that the veils between the physical and spirit realm appear thinner during this time. The ritual of wearing masks is a spiritual portal into alternate realities in consciousness and transformation.

The thinning of the veils can play tricks on us. But it can be a real treat to reconnect with the spirits of our ancestors who have left this Earth.

Meditation on Bat can empower your ability to hear spirit, if you wish to do so.

Try not to get spooked by your fears because negative energies tend to feed off of that.

Election Day is also on November 8th. The figure 8 is the sign of Infinity. It may seem like the Tao centered politics of a New Aquarian Age and Paradigm is far off in the future.

But a simple shift in mindset reveals that the New World is already happening. The old world is fading away into the backdrop and falling away, like the leaves on the trees.

May the forthcoming Eclipse Season become an infinite Election of new politics in our collective lives, if you’ll pardon the pun.

Take care of yourselves everyone,

Ari
