I remember when Hawk flew-over
the trails on the last New Moon.

This reminded me about them being symbolic of new beginnings,
and sacred connections with New Moons, Hawk and Mercury.

Mercury in Retrograde springs forth relationships from our past
that often circle back to the present.

Sometimes, these reunions revisit us in a variety of forms of phone calls,
post cards, letters, emails, or other virtual social media platforms.

Or they might come in the form of dreams, visions, or memories of
someone you might not have known back in the day, or even in the flesh.

The point is we are given opportunities to revisit, and rework old
patterns so that we can release old ways, and rewrite new scripts.

But pretty soon, a Full Worm Moon will be in effect on
Monday, March 9th, and then Mercury goes Direct again.

On the day before that, Daylight Saving Time begins,
signals the call to the light.

As the fog lifts, and the skies clear,
may red breasted robins remind us that the early bird gets the worm.

Can you feel the winds of change whistling to you in the air?

Our days are getting longer, which tends to
spring forth an outgrowth in spirits, and budding energies.

And then, Yin and Yang will be equal again on
the Vernal Equinox on the first day of Spring on March 19th.

This is a time when Nature shows us equality
between masculine and feminine energies.

The Yin and Yang are always in flux,
as the one constant in Life is change.

We are in a Pisces time of year, which is a good
time to meditate on the water element,
and the fishes of the sea.

Have you ever noticed that fighting against the current leaves
you feeling more submerged underwater, than going with the flow?

Meditation on Whale is good medicine to tap into
the heartbeat of the planet, remember our history,
and know where we are going.

These great creatures have a living memory, and crystalized wisdom
that we might as well heed, and respect.

Like it or not, we are swimming into the waters of different pods,
and new ways of defining family constellations.

Do you ever wonder why an elderly, Jewish, card carrying Socialist that
hasn’t forgotten about the Civil Rights movement of the 60s,
continues to be written off as an “electable candidate” by
the corporate media, and even liberally-minded voters?

Where does that voice come from that says we can’t afford to
subsidize quality health care, or free college education
for those who want to access higher learning?

Or why the two major political parties
are so against Rank Choice Voting?

Consider that Donald Trump, and his friends in the Billionaire Class
that control the resources want nothing to do with a civically
engaged public because it seemingly threatens their way of life.

This way of life says that your ability to make money makes you better
than those that are not, and it is predicated on property rights, and privilege.

But really, it’s just that they want to control where the
“general welfare” goes, and who benefits from it.

Everything about that kind of thinking is wrong, because what we
are talking about is what is good for the goose is good for the gander.

It is impressive how in the dark people are about where
the money comes from, and where it goes.

That’s why the bulk of the money in the Military-Industrial (Economic) Complex
hides in shadowy “black hole” accounts.

By and large, the Billionaire Class prefers to go unexamined,
and wants to keep it that way.

Like when the white slaves, and black slaves were manipulated
by the slavemaster to believe one was more of an underclass
than the other, and therefore inferior.

Today, the ego of the habituated mind is addicted to
segregated, us and them kind of thinking.

There are those that are entitled to preferential treatment,
and those that are not, says the voice in the head.

But where does that come from?

Perhaps it’s about time that the age old social democratic values that
have been muzzled in this country come out into the sunlight.

Opening up to abundance means that there is enough, and everyone can win.

And if you are sick of getting sucked into March Madness,
and election year politics . . .

Think about the frogs and salamadars finding their way
to vernal pools on Big Night. See them arriving to their breedings grounds,
safe and sound so that we can all carry on our merry way in peaceful coexistence.

Till we tweet again peeps,

Robins remind us that Spring is in the air –
Meditate on the perspective of an early bird getting the worm . . .

Early days of Spring are budding ahead . . .
Movement into light energies are rising!

Red Robin’s breasts symbolize masculinity –
Red brightens spirits like a hot ray of sunlight!

Energetically, a new zodiacal year is reborn . . .
A new season turns the heat up into a budding New Aquarian Age

But retrograde in the cosmos summon ghosts of yesteryear
Time to heal comfortably numb catacombs,
and release the possessive attachments of those old wounds

Here in American, Bernie Sanders ramps up the call for expanding Medicare
so that everyone has access to quality health care

Who’s going to pay for that?

The same folks funneling billions of dollars to the mega rich,
so that the rest of us are kept from having equal access to that rightful resource

We make work cool again when people have good jobs that pay livable wages,
and ideally have good fortune to have meaningful work . . .

When you do what you love, and love what you do,
Inner peace feels like a sublime experience worth sharing . . .

May we co-create a world with purposeful and meaningful work
that feeds our planet, and in return nourishes all of us!

See you further on up the trails,

The psychic powers of Owl peer into the
mysterious darkness of a waning Full Snow Moon

May your spirits ride the thermals of the
wintry winds of February astrological eclipses

Like an owl secretly swooping into a crow’s nest in the night
Nature takes Her course, in spite of the desires of a humancentric New World Order

The Age of Aquarius is gaining full steam ahead
Even if Climate Change feels anything but a Golden Age in current events

In spite of worldly darkness, and snow blanketing the landscape . . .
The light of spring is stirring in the weather underground

Like changing seasons, the law of impermanence reminds us
that it won’t always be like this because the one constant is change

Like all systems, humans naturally resist change . . .
Might as well move with the river of life instead of push against it

Part of making magic is letting go of the Midas Touch
Sometimes live rust is as good as it gets

The Powers That Be do not have the grace of a swan
Nationalistic tendencies want to bring security and order to chaos

It is hard not to be seduced by the power of the dark side . . .

Fear is a seductive hook that lures the fishes of a dying old Pisces Age
into comfortably old familiar nets

Picture an Owl to help you see through the manipulation and control
issues that spring up in your daily life

May you soul awaken to the Universal Love and Truth that wants to set you free!

At the tail end of this week,
Rooster swoops with enthusiasm into the Chinese-Lunar New Year . . .

Their energies awaken humor during dark times, and resurrect a
new sense of optimism in a world where we need that now more than ever

Do you remember when Malcolm X was demonized by the
Empire for his accurately reflected comments following JFK’s assassination?

Behind the scenes, the truth is that he was speaking
about reaping the poisonous seeds we have collectively been sewn . . .

Yes, there are mysterious forces at work on the dark side of the moon
But Rooster signals the light of day on this new year moon shine

Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration reflects an old world fading away
when we look back in our rear view mirrors . . .

What can we learn from, let go of, release and resurrect
with fruitful transformation in the year ahead?

Past lives matter, in the sense that we might take back the night and
march into the sunlight in the here and now in the light of day!

That doesn’t happen with violent insurgence, and warring tribes on social media

Nor does it happen by being hard on yourself by denying or
getting stuck in an adult-child vicious cycle of guilt and shame . . .

Sexuality is a co-creative process of intimate partnership . . .
A convergence of masculine and feminine energies dancing together

We have spoken of the interplay between order and chaos . . .

The Chattering Monkey rears its ugly head of fear, worry and anxiety

Security and control issues come up when other pathways are revealed,
sometimes through less graceful testing of limits set by authority figures

It can be challenging not to take rudeness, disrespect and a
youth-centric sense of entitlement personally . . .

Many of us from the old world learned a different quality of respect through
aggressively being put in our place by adult authority figures through manipulation

But Rooster asserts His sun onto dark energies and puts them in their place
The light of Consciousness illuminates the shadows

May Rooster call out your deepest and darkest experiences that are buried
deep within you subconscious so that can be looked upon with gentle authenticity

Do whatever you can to be mindful of your thoughts, through soft compassion

When I think of wolves, I remember stories of two wolves
always fighting with each other in every human head and heart . . .

If we are awake, the doors of perception are cleansed to see
the conflict of duality, and the reality of paradox . . .

This reality has come to the surface on the consciousness of our planet today
It is sobering for those that have been asleep, and it can be painful to stomach

Wolf government reflects neither a pure dictatorship or democracy
Do you see this division playing out in our world today?

Yes, there are Red States, and there’s Blue states
But Wolf teaches us about balance

We are all connected!

We have to transform the masculine, yang rising light of
the Military-Industrial Complex . . .

That’s where the highest concentration of welfare goes

Many souls have left around this time of year, and we witness many tragedies
in our everyday worldly experiences, often horrific, and so painful to watch

But Meditation on Wolf brings about a positive interpretation and silver lining
that lights up the horizon . . .

Like one of the strengths of the old world, could ¬†you “suck it up”,
and see the beauty within and without?

Can you examine what lies beneath your anger, and explore your inner space
beyond cynicism, complaints and sarcasms?

Part of the purification of Channel Now is to let go and release our old wounds . . .

Looking through the perceptual lens of letting go and release
does take a deeper responsibility . . .

As collective souls, we chose to come here to become mortal and learn . . .
For many of us, these lessons have come from the old school of hard knox

But many have only forgotten . . .

It is easy to forget a positive outlook when things
don’t feel good or go our way . . .

Simple it is to dismiss another person or
divergent viewpoint rather than examine what
wisdom might light my way in any unwelcome reflections
mirroring back into our field of vision . . .

On the surface, there is maddening and crazy voices that want to angrily rip
everything in our paths to tiny pieces

But then in the scuba diving into deeper waters of an inner ocean,
there is a wise wolf that is calm, yet with unshakeable power like Yoda

This is the space of stillness

Till we meet again further on up the trails,

With Turkey Vulture, we are guided into a new world of purification and rebirth
We are moving into darker days, as reflected in our inner and outer worlds

Spread your wings like an angel to lift your energy field
to see above the treeline and see a silver lining

Let your fiery passions be quenched by the waters of compassionate patience

Many folks are grieving Turtle’s pace of social change,
while feeling that they are swimming against
a current that feels against progress

We want a better world than the hellish nightmare we hold in
our minds and hearts

A New World where our colorful diversity is celebrated
in the love and light of unity

It is true we did not start the fire
But as Rome burns, let us tune in to the key of inner peace

Our living planet needs to access more inner peace today

Let our population lighten up to the possibility of terrestrial,
foreign-born, alien brothers and sisters coexisting in harmony

But you can become part of the solution by relaxing your worries,
and replacing them with positive self talk

Now you might demonize various targets that you
perceive are surrounded by minions

Perhaps you might view darker forces that you view as the cause of
the malaise of our modern world

But empathy in action sees the pain beneath the veil of furrowed brows
Just as wise indigenous shamans saw beyond the smokescreen of
justified colonialism

Conservative forces naturally want to anchor,
and reign in our world’s changing tides

Try to remember that the overwhelming majority is working toward a common
goal of co-creating a better world for our planet and all sentient beings

People are working hard enough in the day-to-day grind

Just shift the way you look at the world around you
through a perspective of self-love

Owl’s night vision zeros in on shadowy
darkness shrouding our World today . . .

There are so many secrets and closeted dysfunctions
whispering along the tree lines

Termites and mouse hoardings are exposing themselves now . . .
Once lurking underground, underneath the topsoil

Grandmother Moon softens inward darker emotions
They don’t need to charge hateful bites that burden your soul

Let the internal flames of Truth and Power of Love
reflect in your outer world experience

In spite of wintry winds and cold weather to come
Remember to nurture your inner torch with love, light and laughter!

Some of our ancestors have called owls cats with wings
Because they are stealthy predators who see in the dark effectively

When racing thoughts take flight, making relaxation difficult at night . . .
Picture an Owl and send a message of sunlight to loosen your stiff neck

Old ghosts and energies are here to reawaken novel opportunities
to remember and make amends with our ancestors who have passed on

Arriving New Moon beginnings are here to help us proceed through
our daily routine with feminine softness as we turn our clocks yinward

Sometimes emotional pain might be asking us to attend to the details of
giving up hoardings of excess baggage that weighs down our collective soul

It’s OK to love yourself in a quiet way by getting some rest and
take refuge from the storms

See you further on up the trails,

Ari
