Has anyone else out there been feeling the powerful effects of
the current events of this Full Moon cycle?

Have you noticed your dreams have being alive, and symbolically reflective
of where you have been, and where you are going?

Yesterday’s Full Moon is considered the most powerful
Full Moon of the year, spiritually speaking.

Our ancestors and contemporaries call it
Wesak, Scorpio, Flower, and many other names.

Of course, they all captured the sentiment of the rising tide of our
collective consciouniousness, as Hall of Fame
psychologist Carl Jung speaks to us from the Dreamtime.

But with these powerful energies, I like to remember
the wisdom to be a defensive driver in life, and not
throw caution to the wind.

I saw a Racoon the other day, and the encounter reminded me of
how the internal martial arts uses leverage in life to
show us the way.

What matters is how we respond to the energies that come our way,
and how we respond to them with love or hate.

It is said that the Buddha returns to Mother Earth
to spread the light of compassion on our Planet.

Meditate on that when you gaze at your himalayan salt lamp,
cook with this spice, or bathe in pink himalayan saltwater.

The Christ, along with many other spiritual light team members
accompany this new spiritual year with the power of love.

Might as well bask in love as much as possible, and not get sucked
into you own fears, and the fear mongering of the corporate media.

It is a good time to revisit and release any past spiritual contracts,
and then meditate on you soul purpose you want to focus on
in the year ahead.

But you don’t have to label yourself as a
Christian or Buddhist to do that.

In fact, these energies affect all of us.

And we can use a healthy dose of their love and light –
now more than ever!

Are you functioning robotically in your doings –
dreaming your life away, and lulled to sleep by your gadgets and playlists?

Might as well take the invitation to
wake up to the present moment, and
be here, right now.

Many of you see beyond the shadowy veil of the
bullying, narcisstic and sociopathic gangsters peddling violence, and other
pyramids of segregation and hate in our world today.

We are all sons and daughters of God, and it makes sense to me that we should
be celebrating our diverse expressions, and yet also shared oneness.

Look at a straight-laced conservative as a part of you,
if you identify yourself as otherwise.

Or if you see yourself as a new edition to the liberal left,
LGBTQ, etc. mind-set – understand that we are all
equal rainbow children, regardless of our identifications.

Anarchy and security/order and chaos
have a natural impetus to learn a new dance together,
like the yin and the yang are always seeking balance.

As the Moon darkens, the Sun Rises
As such, your inner cubs want to
come out and manifest their potential.

Keep in mind the masculine energies of the light of yang
reach their peak on the Summer Solstice in later June.

You don’t need to necessarily be having sex to
express yourself sexually.

Nor do you need to identify with any label
that you feel pulled to identify with.

At the end of the day, we are meant to go behind
our identifications so that we can transform into
a place of authentic identity in the better
angels of our Divine, soulful expressions of this lifetime.

It is the deeply sensuous place of inner peace
that connects you to your Higher Self.

April is here, and it appeared that we were in full spring ahead here in Maine.

But that might be easy to forget with some new snow on the ground today –
only days after a fiery New Aries Moon a few days ago.

And yet, in the 45 years I’ve been on the Planet,
living in places like the Midwest and New England, I know the transition from
Winter to Spring doesn’t typically happen overnight.

Nor is it easy to welcome the less desirable, and dirtier weather of Spring.

Also, it’s common for people to forget that we’re not out of the woods,
and it can be hard on folks to not get bogged down or stuck in the mud.

Even if you don’t like Winter, or have had enough of a dying season that’s
fading into the backdrop, grieving feelings do naturally
rise to the surface – sometimes unexpectedly.

But like the classic Dead song, Box of Rain –
April has a cleansing effect on our souls,
and is a good time of year for purging, and purification.

They weren’t my preferred band to follow. But I respect how the politics
of their music delved into the ambiguity of life.

Let’s face facts . . . Like the seasons, life is transitory, and not
without its unexpected tragic moments.

In one breath, you have a healthy pet or a loved one who has been your rock.
And then, seemingly out of nowhere, the lord of death takes them away.

The feelings that come up in those dark edges are not easy to sit with.

Do you remember the old saying about April showers bring May flowers?
This also true for us on the inside, energetically speaking.

We might as well say yes to Nature’s way of reflecting that back to us.
Of course resisting the weather only brings in more suffering.

Have you heard the peepers singing in the wetlands?
Frogs are good medicine for meditation at this time of year.

Our ancestors told stories about how Frog sang songs that called on the rains
to wash away the dirty energies that leave us feeling stagnant in life.

It is also a good time to be mindful of boundaries in relationship.

You can picture a frog to help you assert yourself,
and stand in your own personal authority,
or even just telling those ribbeting racing thoughts to stop!

April, movement into a New Aquarian age, and in walking
a spiritual path in life isn’t all about sunshine and rainbows.

We need to remember that dark skies, and thunderclouds roll in before
the colorful prisms of light that bring up the more sunny side up feelings.

And sometimes, it feels yucky to see the shadows that you forgot were there,
but are now springing to the surface of your consciousness.

It’s like when you feel lost and alone in the dark, and then you remember to
find a silver lining, and see brighter spirits as being on their way.

I foresee a day
when humanity passes
our technology
But we live in a time of
performance enhancers and

nano/biotech
boomtown lab rats dominate
the human factor

Perhaps robots and
cyborgs might lead us back to
A time when we take
back the days of our lives and
the dreams of our night visions

You can take a red
pill or a white capsule to
unplug from or stay

connected to the
hypnotic trance like state of
the matrix boxes
or you can awaken from
slumbering eyes wide shut now

It is your sovereign
right to choose the pillars of
love and truth to light

your way through the dark
night of the soul that you may
face during your life
quest. The duality of
freewill is a blessing and

a curse. Energy
is energy. It’s what you
do with it that counts.

Here is a newish documentary on the cultural/historical context of UFO phenomena since the Roswell incident in 1947.

And here is my new author website:

Chickadee sings songs
of Spring arriving right now
Vernal Equinox
and a Full Worm Moon unearths
Takes root on Wednesday March 20

Crows show their magic
chasing away hawks from nests
to protect their young

Male and Feminine
Energies are dancing in
transgender fashion
Father Sky and Mother Earth
commingle in alignment

May truth speak to you
with an approach that is soft
and a gentle voice

Nature reflects light
and darkness in equal ways
Sunlight grows stronger
till climaxing on Summer
Solstice after long Winter

We feel drunk from sun-
beams that awaken magic
of the moment, and
give pause for the arrival
of transitory sweetness

And then let them go
with a playful, light-hearted
sense of detachment

Do you hear the birds
chirping gleefully on days
some more than others
Grieving wintry remnants
Welcoming warmer weather?

Sunshine and rainbows
feels inebriating to the
soul’s sun tao and zen

Till next week peeps,

The Imbolc is coming, which represents the mid-point
between the Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox.

And the Chinese Lunar New Year of the Pig comes on
February 5th, along with a New Moon the day before that

So the new energies of a new year are still strong right now . . .

Of course in The United States, the popular
Groundhog Day tells us if we have six more weeks of winter,
depending on whether or not the groundhog sees his shadow.

The energy of Groundhog awakens the death of the old self
without actually physically ending your life.

I wonder how many suicides could be prevented if, or even
the public’s general fear of death might relax,
if a healthy energetic diet of
Groundhog medicine was more consistently consumed?

Changing seasons, death without dying,
and even physical death itself,
is merely a transition.

Like the Law of Transience teaches us,
all life is not without change.
It’s one constant that we can count on.

Given that groundhogs hibernate in winter,
and dig elaborate underground homes,
it makes perfect sense that they symbolize
digging into our subconscious,
to see what might be hiding beneath
the shadows of our conscious reality.

Meditation on Groundhog can awaken a sense that
there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Use these energies to be curious about what feelings have been
simmering cautiously beneath the surface of your conscious experience with reality

Perhaps they will lead you into the depth of your humanity and personal divinity

Just a shift in perspective can literally transform
the way the world looks right in front of your eyes . . .

See you onward along the trails,

The Winter Solstice arrives on December 21st,
signaling the darkest day of the year in the Northern hemisphere

A Full Cold Moon follows in its wake on the day after that.

Spirits can run high and naturally crouch low this time of year . . .

Might as well allow these tension of opposites
flow in your being without getting too swayed in either direction.

Another astrological eclipse season is coming shortly after
the birth of the Gregorian New Year in early January.

The Chinese New Year of the Pig rolls in on February 5, 2019

More winds of change are in the air

Do you see the parallels between President Hoover
and the stock market crash of 1929 and today’s plummeting capital?

Consider these changing tides a newer redistribution
of wealth and financial appreciation for the many!

What about the parallels between President Nixon,
Watergate and President Trump and “Russiangate?”

Underneath these time traveling synchronicities is
a growing remember when tune to “power to the people”

The darkness of feminine energies is rising,
as is further movement into a new Aquarian Age Consciousness.

As always, picture peaceful, calming thoughts,
and be gentle on yourself.

At the same time, do what you can to make the world a better place.
But remember to do so with love in your heart.

If you find yourself being seduced by hate,
be mindful to exhale this dead energy,
and let it go to so that it can transform into the light of the Universe.

In this dark time of year, think about the resurrection of the light

He rises everyday day till Spring arrives on the Vernal Equinox in March,
and then the sunlight grows stronger every day after that
until He peaks on the Summer Solstice in June

I heard someone say recently that the holidays are whatever you make of them.
Isn’t that true about everyday life?

In America, we are moving further into the season know as the holidays.
This time of year serves up mixed feelings for our culture,
which reflects the sign of the tumultuous times
we are living in on the planet at large.

And there are is a deeper and higher multidimensional Universe at play,
a vibration we have always been a part of – a reality more of us are waking up to.

More people are opening their eyes to the sacred ways of Nature,
yet others are walking around with eyes wide shut.
Still, others are losing their minds, checking out,
killing themselves or killing others.

In the pain and suffering, there is great tragedy

We in the modern Western world have been conditioned to destroy.
Just look at the medical model, and the Military-Industrial Complex.

But awakening to our “better angels”,
allows us to use our shadow sides as spirit guides to move through the darkness
so that we can move through the gateways of transformation.

This is a guiding light

You might think to yourself that “getting older sucks”,
and be seduced by the temptation to glorify youth culture,
and look on the good old days through the lens of nostalgia.

We are like the seasons, and we go through changes accordingly.
As such, Old Man Winter has shown himself by bringing us snow.

We have officially crossed the mid-point between the Autumn equinox,
and are moving closer to the darkest day of the year on the Winter solstice.

But that gives us an opportunity to look forward to our days getting a little longer,
and filling our hearts with a little more light everyday until the Vernal equinox in March,
when light and dark energies will be equal again.

Or maybe you’re hard on yourself about your transgressions,
or about how you’ve hurt others. With the holidays coming,
a Full Moon on its way, and Mercury in retrograde, the temptation to focus
on getting depressed about the past or anxious about the future grows.

But if you consciously meditate on the spiritual energy of Turkey,
then you can awaken your spiritual eyes to see abundance all around you,
and stuff yourself with an attitude of gratitude in your heart for the shared blessings that exist today,
and everyday really. And if you find your energy field depleted or consumed
by the energy of others, you can picture a turkey to help you ward of those negative energies.

Stay grounded, and connect to the roots of the Earth.
Drink lots of water, eat whole foots, and exercise in a way that you “don’t sweat the small stuff.”
Be gentle on yourself, look for the silver lining, and make positive interpretations.
Leave it to a Full Beaver Moon to give you the industry you need to design
new internal structures inside yourself to give you the
spiritual power you need to rise up to the challenges that you face.

Beaver can help you find alternative pathways that you might not have even known were there.
Then, if you notice a new way of doing something, give that more of your attention.
Novelty is good, but repetition can be a good thing too.

Old habits may die-hard.

But new ways of doing things are ready to spring forth!

Till we tweet again peeps,

Ari
