Posts Tagged ‘Spring Eclipse Season’

Turtles have been living on this planet longer than dinosaurs
Humans have been living on Earth less than that

And yet many of us are living like dinosaurs, caught up in a karmic loop
of the reptilian mind – obsessed with order and control issues

A perpetual state of fear is the psychological reality for many
the glass is seen as half empty, which creates anxieties about the fear of loss

But Turtle’s shells reflect safety, security and protection

It’s always good to slow down and return to the mindfulness of our breath

With a Solar Eclipse New Moon, and Lunar New Year arriving this week
Stirrings of Spring energies are waking up underground

Can you feel their movement into new beginnings and foreshadowing
of above ground changes in the air, like a fading stock exchange
and military-industrial complex?

We are all children of God, even Donald Trump
The time is now to purge and release our ideas of separation

Us and Them kind of thinking is devolution
Demonizing our demons will not bring us to the Light

Why are there movements to impeach Donald Trump,
hold power abusers accountable, create a more equitable economic system,
nurture minority/woman’s rights, and
provide safety nets like universal health care?

Will Trump quit before he gets impeached, then live out the rest of his life
pontificating about being persecuted, and ensconced in seeing himself as a victim?

Why is there such push back to justify going to war against perceived enemies,
under the guise of national security?

It is because oppression needs to have a privileged few on top,
and an overwhelming majority on the bottom to feed the machine

But we are all in this together . . .

Human beings are complex creatures, and our relationships
are greater than the sum of our parts

Look upon one another as mirrors to help us reflect the light of love and truth

Remember that it takes less energy to love than to hate

It has been said that Dog is “man’s best friend” . . .

In this Chinese New Year of the Dog, meditation on Dog can inspire
a deep compassion for our human shortcomings,
and loyalty to our one human family

A Full Snow Moon arrives earlier than usual this year . . .

This Full Moon is also a Total Lunar Eclipse
Its energies, like the NFL/Super Bowl hype is performance enhanced!

The Imbolc, or the halfway point between Winter and Spring
also arrives this week, along with Groundhog Day

Our days are getting longer, and light/dark will be
equal again by the Spring Equinox in March

May the spiritual powers of Groundhog’s consciousness
awaken a death without dying experience

Although wearing masks is a natural part of being human,
living authentically means coming out of hibernation . . .

Time to come above ground and leave our shadow selves behind . . .
A Full Moonshine is a revelation into our Higher Selves

Digging deeper into our souls revisits lessons from past selves and before lives
What do those lessons have to teach you in the here and now?

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?

A waning Full Wolf Moon shrinks in the skies,
as we are waking up into a new year ahead . . .

Like losing our loved ones, a dying lunar cycle
can bring up similar feelings of grieving, loss and sadness

Winter is a good time to turn inward, pause and reflect on the last year
It is also a good time to go into the Dreamtime,
and take note of what comes up from there

What metaphorical trees are moved to uproot and be
examined in the underground of your consciousness?

What seeds do you want nurture and breathe life into the sunlight come spring?

Every day will shed a little more light until
light and dark are equal again on Spring Equinox in March

Energetically, if we are paying attention to Nature’s subtleties,
we will see evidence of a blossoming spring coming earlier than that

Spring Astrological Eclipse season is on its way at the tail end of this month . . .

Their energies correspond with of a Full Snow Moon at the end of January, and the
Chinese-Lunar year of the Dog later on in mid-February

Time to weather the cold, and maintain perspective
even in dim lights, and dark emotions

Picture Groundhog to awaken death without dying, and
focus on seeing the light at the end of the tunnel . . .

A powerful Aries New Moon shot through our skies last week
These energies can help us stay on target as we traverse through the
fiery energetic aftershocks of Spring Eclipse season

Here on the ground Goose signifies an opportune time for new beginnings
The impetus for breathing out the old grows with
breathing in the rising Light in the air

Time to breathe in fresh new approaches to
harmonize with each other and our environment

Use the energies of Goose to align with the spirit of a new season

Take a look back in the rearview mirror and imagine a road less traveled ahead

Geese reflect the possibilities of healthy egalitarian soul to soul connections
They are good role models for high fidelity in couple partnerships

Let go of codependent, tit for tat entanglements with form
As identification with ego-driven desires relax, spiritual power grows

Life is a spiritual quest . . .
Remember the ancestral wisdom that reminds us that a journey of a thousand miles
always started with a single step

Let Goose guide you into a legendary sense of adventure during your travels here

A healthy relationship to yourself first is based on a mutual and trusting
intermarriage between your Divine masculine and feminine selves

Goose awakens creative forces of purification, renewal and intimacy
as you co-author your Life story with your Higher authentic Self

What unchartered places in your consciousness want to awaken to self-discovery?

Geese serve as inspiration to explore a vegetarian diet
This is good food for healthy soulful digestion

Flying in a V formation utilizes maximum energy
where every bird takes its turn at egalitarian propulsion

A wise old adage of what is good for the goose is good for the gander is personified

A seductive vote for Donald Trump, behind the smokescreen,
simply reveals a greedy silver spoon rebel without a cause
Whilst in reality, a vote for him is a vote for more oppression by the Empire
vilifying the poor and oppressed is not being pro-American

A vote for Hillery Clinton is new on the surface,
in the sense that America would give birth to Her first woman as President,
an elderly minority of the opulent White woman of course . . .

And then there is Bernie Sanders running on the political playing field
Ever humble, modest and honest, though a minority candidate that comes
from lower middle class Jewish heritage
Did you know that back in the 90’s, powerful feminist
Gloria Steinem coined Sanders an “honorary woman”

There is a rising climate of consciousness on our Planet today that
wants to level the playing field through a motivation
for all of us to live, work and play together in a socially democratic fashion

But we are living in divisive times today . . .
Like Yin and Yang, order and chaos are mixing it up

Today’s violence reminds us of our need to step up to peace
Be part of the solution by loving yourself and one another

It is imperative to heal our illusion of us and them
May we let go of a dying old elitist world mentality that glamorize angels and demons

Remember that out of the ashes,
a Phoenix Rising is born anew

I am pleased to announced the forthcoming arrival of my first published book. I will

my writing and my Aunt Barbara’s artwork.

Chickadees are fearless peaceful warriors . . .

They are effective spirit guides to have during
the waning intensities of last week’s Full Moon
and offer a more cheerful passage through a passing Spring Eclipse Season

When crows and vultures descend . . .
These tiny birds stand undaunted in their own personal power

Chickadees are small in physical stature
But they are symbolic of our own boundless power of spirit

We all should have the right to express our voice without oppression . . .
Learned helplessness is harder to internalize in a more
socially just and fair global community

We are spiritual beings having human experiences
More of us are waking up to this reality
and there is power in our growing numbers and flowering consciousness . . .

Chickadees sing cheerful songs of Truth . . .
May their energy elevate a personal resurrection burning brighter light in our souls
through passionate expression of Christ Consciousness within and without

Their black caps symbolizes intellect and higher level thinking . . .

We are a diversified and unified portfolio here on Earth
Let us welcome abundance to the possibility of equal access to resources
Divergent expressions of Great Spirit is who we really are

Remember the conflict of duality is healed through
the lens of our upper chakras

When we look through a lens of equality
We honor and respect each other’s diversity in unity

Donald Trump is a reflection of a dirty rear view mirror
that our lower chakras reveal to us as informants

Don’t buy into marketed commercial that sells
the jingle that projects a white privileged-centric
“we’re going make America great again”

That’s just code for demonizing Muslims, Arabs, Immigrants, the poor, oppressed
and other outsiders that don’t fit the mold of the opulent minority

This Aquarian land was made for you and me!

On the surface, energies are intensifying . . .
Suicide bombs have gone off and innocent people are dying
There is tragedy in the air!

Time for the Billionaire class to pay their fair share
Instead of greedily concentrating more wealth
to those that already have more than enough

But on a deeper level, we are moving into blossoming new beginnings . . .

Nature is leveling the playing field

Violence is waking us up

Bernie Sanders is part of a movement in alignment with a
forthcoming Aquarian Age

Contrary to what the corporate media wants you to believe,
he is an electable candidate . . .

We can stop the violence of voting for the lesser of two evils
and against our own best interests . . .

Remember that change, like the seasons is a process . . .
It is more about an unfolding transition than a fixed time and space

May Chickadee elevate our spirits to rise above and get off the couch
Let us free ourselves from the mental slavery of business as usual politics

The time is now for new economies built on a foundations of authenticity and trust
Clean love and clean care is renewable energy for all to share

Please envision with me as smooth of a transition as possible into new times . . .

See you up the trails,

Now more than ever may we become quiet enough to heed Turtle’s wisdom
Remember that stillness speaks through the sound of silence

These are the days of diving into the depth of our inner seas
Because we are all globally swimming in perceived divisive waters of polarity

But underground forces know there is oneness and unity

Turtle is a good reminder to be patient, gentle and kind to yourself
during this process of evolutionary growth that is not without its growing pains

Light and Dark energies will be on equal ground on Spring Equinox
Tis the season to heal polarity in the collective waters of consciousness

In this Chinese Year of the Monkey . . .

Might as well use the rising intensities to invigorate your committment
to relax your own chattering monkey mind

A hurry up offense is a popular way to live on Earth today . . .

Batter up, strike out and who’s on first?
The thoughts and emotional reactions to those thoughts can be incessant

The stories and monkey mind chatter can come on fast and furious
like a perfect storm even

Envisioning a light-hearted, playful and even childlike sense of humor of Self
enhances the ability to see the interplay
between wisdom and folly as comedic theater

Are you hating that person with political beliefs divergent from yours?
It’s just a reflection of leaving behind old shores,
while moving into new lands of thought

Please consider heeding the experiential wisdom of Ram Das
to just learn to love everybody and everything

The wind and the rain have a way of washing things out
Cleaning up with consistent exercise and eating energetically grounding foods
moves things around with the good stink of healthy fertilizer for those in our wake

Mother Earth’s ancient wisdom is to stay low like the depths of the ocean

Is it time to retreat into a protective bubble and shield yourself
from the worries of the world of 10,000 things?

Or do you need to come out of your shell and socialize more frequently?

The tides of climate change are shifting and gaining momentum . . .

Like the transition from Winter to Spring

The weather underground is budding with new growth
As your buried ideas surface from their dark Winter’s slumber

They are waking up and wanting to spring into action
In the sunlight of Spring Eclipse season

Keep your wits by recognizing that order and chaos are dancing together
Just as light and dark forces moving with one another

We are here to sit with tension of opposites
and make friends with the conflict of duality

Do what ever you can to slow down and observe the moments as they spring up
Try to do this without judgment and learn to be with what is

Meditation on Turtle will help you cultivate energy gradually like the power of water

A Full Worm Moon arrives on Hump Day after Spring Equinox
Symbolic of a new season and the early bird getting the worm
