A Lion’s Truth, New Moon In Leo & Full Sturgeon Moon Down The Pike

A New Moon in Leo awakens new beginnings on July 28, 2022.

Lion’s spirit symbolizes:

Trusting our intuitive faculties, strength of will, patience and creative imagination.

Meditation on the Solar Plexus Chakra can be a helpful strategy here.

Picture the Sun living within the center point of your sternum.

Lion energy reminds us that real power cannot be forced.

Instead of striving to make things happen,

we are allowing for the arriving of what is in an organic unfolding.

Leo prefers the limelight and focusing on sunshine and rainbows.

But they have a tendency to be spitfires and bring their heat while playing with form.

When examining the Mirror of The Mind in meditation, it is wise to give contemplation to

what we want to bring down from the dreamtime into our material realm.

Doing this requires differentiating fantasy from reality.

Saying yes to life and making amigos with our egos,

are key dynamics to personality development.

An inside out approach recognizes that Life is a matrix of

performing art where the actor and spectator

intersect with one another within an immediate feedback loop.

Be mindful of Pride being Lion’s shadow side:

We all know pride can be seductive!

Wisdom reminds us to face our shadows head on,

otherwise we fall prey to their dark edges

and become shrouded by them.

Mantra: Self Love & Self Expression . . .

I know a Leo who rolls around in dew covered grass underneath a summery Full Moonshine,

as an energetic cleansing strategy to ground & connect with Mother Earth.

Practicing T’ai Chi or another form of moving meditation allows for

exploration of experiencing the power of water gradually.

We are mostly water . . .

The tide of a Full Sturgeon Supermoon rolls in on August 11, 2022.

Like turtles, sturgeons have been around so long they are often referred to as living fossils.

They have an ancient wisdom and survival instinct about them that should be mediated on.

Sturgeon awakens resiliency when facing adversity and overcoming traumatic soul wounds.

Humanity’s evolution needs to develop resiliency in our quest

for reimagining our human story so that we can change our collective narrative.

We can learn to co-regulate and co-exist with one another

so that we can mutually harmonize with our environment.

In the meantime, do whatever you can to

stay in alignment with the Universal Pillars of Love and Truth!

Take care of yourselves everyone,

Ari

A Gemini New Moon, Full Strawberry Supermoon & The Energetic Butterfly Effect

A New Moon in Gemini will arrive on May 30th, 2022. These changes in latitudes and changes in attitudes are reminders about the spontaneity of life. May a sense of safety awaken from an awareness about your feelings and sharing them with others. Remember that our heads and hearts want to be in harmony with one another because we need them both to function effectively. Gemini are mutable twins with a lot of teaching energy around them. They are natural storytellers and journalists and have a perceptibility for allowing the light to illuminate the shadows. Being able to see both the light and the dark in a balanced way recognizes the equanimity of life. You can’t have the light without the dark or the masculine without the feminine. Given how difficult it is to differentiate between fact and fiction these days, this is an especially good trait in the times we are living in. Effective communication is a balancing act between speaking and listening. Some people have the gift of gab, while others are natural listeners. We need to develop both forms for healthy communication. Learning to control our minds helps tame the Chattering Monkey Mind. This helps us discern between impulsive hot thoughts versus intuitive or psychic hits. Thoughts that are repetitive and loud need to relax.

A Strawberry Supermoon on June 14 will be the second supermoon of 2022. Its name trances its ancestry from the Algonquin, Ojibwe, Dakota, and Lakota peoples, among others. This time marks the ripening of strawberries that are ready to be gathered, as June reflects great abundance and manifestation. Alternative European names for this Moon include the Honey Moon and the Mead Moon. June was traditionally the month of marriages, and is even named after the Roman goddess of marriage, Juno. Following marriage comes the honeymoon, which is in spiritual synchronistic alignment with this sacred time. The Summer Solstice will happen on June 21st, marking peak sunlight in the Northern Hemisphere. After that, days will gradually start getting darker till light and dark are in alignment again on the Autumn Equinox in later September. In the Southern Hemisphere, it will be the Winter Solstice, the darkest day of the year. And then days will gradually start getting lighter till the light and dark are in alignment again on the Spring Equinox. Like our brains, Planet Earth has two hemispheres that are not separate but are naturally desirously dancing together in harmony.

Full Strawberry Moon yields a fruitful harvest for this sweet crop.

Light peaks on Summer Solstice.

Summertime begins and our spirits want to flock together like birds of a feather.

Float with Butterfly to lighten up your soul to the energy of joy while following your bliss.

External outer-directed energies are in full swing now.

When you are faced with the challenge of changing the latitudes

of your attitudes . . .

Remember to float with the

joy of Butterfly lighten-up the color of your soul

Where are you at right now in your growth?

Are you a caterpillar inching along?

Or are you a grub in hibernation — just waiting

for something new to break out of yourself?

Or are you ready to spread your new wings and fly into new places?

Flitting away from Spring, we feel the ripple effect of the

rising sunlight peaking on the Summer Solstice’s to illuminate our way . . .

A Full Strawberry Moon celebrates this sweet season for harvesting strawberries.

The light of masculine-yang is at its energetic peak on the Summer Solstice.

Time to break out, expand and drink in the festivities of summertime!

In the Southern Hemisphere, the dark nights of feminine-yin energies are climaxing.

Southern lights start slowly waxing.

Might as well float through the season with the joy of Butterfly!

Spread the spiritual seeds of love for all to enjoy . . .

Becoming a future self in the here and now.

We are creating ourselves anew.

Butterfly’s position in our ecosystem gets us to reflect;

on the their effect on our

Waking up to the realm of possibility . . .

Summer is a good time to nurture outward growth and

Become a bit of a social butterfly.

We all need to breathe through these trying times . . .

Breathe out the force of fear;

Breathe in the power of love.

Butterfly is opening up our hearts to smile!

Remember to be gentle on yourself and others . . .

Release judgments and prejudices –

Open up to the courage to examine their grip on your own identity.

We are all One, albeit colorful and diverse expressions of that oneness!

Butterflies are pollinators of transformational seeds of growth into our souls.

Commentary

In the theater of life, the one guaranteed constant is change. The great thing about observing the naturalistic environment of Nature is that we see evidence of transience in the changing of the seasons. Think about how crazy it would be to try to rush away winter before the seeds of spring were ready to wake up. The moon doesn’t feel resentful of the sun’s heat, the sun doesn’t get fired up about the moon’s control of the tides, nor does the Earth say to the humans that have plundered Her resources that we owe her.

Do you really think God is egocentric enough to be jealous or vengeful about our behavior? If Jesus, believed by many to be the Son of God, was able to release judgements and forgive his perpetrators while being executed, then surely Creator was more in touch with Their better angels, rather than reacting to the atrocities like the crucifixion without reserve. Meditation on being created in the image of the Universe reveals that, as spiritual beings having human experiences, we understand that we are part creature and part divine. Awakening to the realm of possibilities is about learning how to become freewill within the humanity of our actions, rather than be enslaved by a mechanistic worldview of probability and statistics programmed to worship the suffocating ways of materialism. The energy of Butterfly shows us the real possibility of transformation. But transformation goes through stages. What stage of change are you in right now? Our spirits tend to rise with the light, and it’s hard not to feel inebriated from drinking in the sunlight. After the spring thaw, the natural impetus to be outside and walk in the sun is good food for the soul. All creatures have an excitability to their energy. Outward movement is reflective of working toward energetic expansion. It’s a good time to branch out of comfort zones, and broaden our social networks.

Don’t get sucked in or seduced by the programmed fears that live inside of you or are pushed onto you by the outer world. You all know that we are living with a proliferation of toxicity and pollution. But getting consumed by it isn’t helpful to you, anyone else or the world we live in. Remember that inner peace isn’t about living in a protective bubble. It is about finding that inner calm amidst the turbulent storms in your orbit. A healthy self care routine, including meditation and a trusted professional are all helpful change agents. None of us can do it all on our own. Let go of your pride and control issues, and allow yourselves to be vulnerable in a healthy way. If you have a voice in your head that says, “that’s not me”- ask yourself, who is that voice that makes this convincing argument?

Higher Love is such a divine feeling. It’s not an elitist or hierarchical position of judgment against lower dimensional thinking. Rather, this direct experience of the sublime is a vibrational shift where inner peace, happiness as a way of life, joy lives inside your being, and following you bliss is your way of life. This is where we ride the thermals of our better angels, or our Higher Selves. You can always gage where you are at in our own map of consciousness by how you feel. Are you in a scared, timid, frightened nervous woodland creature place? Might as well picture a butterfly to fly into a sphere of light-hearted floatation. The time is now!

Take Care of Yourselves Everyone,

Ari

May This Full Flower Moon Awaken the Fragrance of our Collective Air

Some of our ancestors called this Full Moon a Full Flower Moon
because many spring flowers are blooming around this time.

A New Moon arrives on May 22nd.

For various reasons, this Full Moon on May 7th is also being called a Supermoon –
the third consecutive one of its kind in 2020.

This threepeat makes for an appetizing prequel to this
Summer’s polyenergetic Astrological Eclipse Season.

They will be arriving on the Summer Solstice in later June.

Energies intensify more than usual around these times.

But this Full Moon is also called the Wesak Full Moon.

This is symbolic of the Buddha’s Light of Compassion that shines brightly
on the consciousness of our planet at this time.

It’s always good to have a compassionate approach.
But especially good medicine when spirits spring out, and up.

Do whatever you can to ground yourself, so that
your feet stay anchored into the Earth.

In the Northern Hemisphere of the Americas,
many of us remember learning the mantra:

April showers bring May flowers

Today, it’s especially hard to be a student or work at a school
when school isn’t in session.

Many people are out of work, or being told to stay home.
But how do I make a living? What do I do with myself?

Beyond a shadow of a doubt, we are experiencing great adversity –
humans especially, know calamity on the planet right now.

But there are positive signs regarding the environmental impact
of staying home, and consuming less fossil fuels on our ecosystems.

I’m hearing students, and coworkers say that they miss being at school.
This is coming from people that you don’t typically hear express those sentiments.

And I’ve heard stories about areas in the Himalaya’s
that you couldn’t see a month ago.

Reportedly, skies are clearing to show their beautiful vistas
to the world again in that location.

As if we needed any proof that fossil fuels
don’t adversely affect humans, and all Earthlings!

They certainly aren’t good for the multidimensional Universe either.

What you can do with this adversity right now,
is allow yourself to awaken to the present moment,
and sit with what is.

You can become mindful of the energy of your thoughts,
and the emotions that connect to those thoughts.

You can become mindful of your breath, replace your fears,
and quiet your chattering monkey mind with peaceful, calming thoughts.

Do this one step, one breath, and one moment at a time.

On the horizontal level, you can play with the forms, including your own.

Get plenty of rest, practice self-care, follow a routine,
nurture your creativity by writing, making art, music
take photojournalistic pictures, drink plenty of water, and eat healthy foods.

On a vertical level, unplug from the gadgets,
travel inside your body into your formless dimension,
and notice what awakens within you in the quiet darkness.

What comes up for you in this empty space?

Can you come down into your soul into this unknowing,
and unmanifested area of you that might want to become conscious?

This is a place beyond ingrained thinking, and robotic habits.
It is a space beyond linear, clock time, and schedules.

Yet paradoxically, you can access this space within the
mundane tasks of your daily routine.

This is where the magic wakes up by allowing your
consciousness to see the light of day.

This is the place where the
darkness of night walks out in the sunlight.

It is a commingling partnership with our masculine, and feminine beingness –
inside of ourselves, and outward bound with each other.

Till we tweet again peeps,

Mouse Nudges Us to Pay Attention to Details

Last week we leaped over the energetic hump of the Fall Equinox
Where yin and yang danced in transient balance

Tonight we feast on the harvest of the closest Full Moon of the year!

Now we transition further into the dark as light fades into the backdrop
Time to look deeper into underground caverns of your soul

Mouse medicine is a powerful spirit guide into the realm of
paying clever attention to the details of life –
Without getting lost in devilish minutia

The herd mentality in human history awakens past life memories . . .
We remember there is power in numbers

As the more of us believe in the Kingdom of Heaven within –
We become stewards of win-win Heaven on Earth co-creative realities

The Eternal City was not built in a day –
Can’t you feel the Bern of a movement
that asserts to global leadership . . .

Stop your divisive hoarding, thieving and stealing!

Use the spirit of the season to
Let go of control issues and fear-based reactivity . . .

Relax into the natural flow of Universal Love and Truth!

The time is now to redistribute equal access to resources

Fair is not necessarily that we all get what we want . . .
But fair does mean that we get we need!

Do you have a tendency to scrutinize others –
or do you have a hard time with being scrutinized?

Perhaps you are scared of your own shadow . . .
But there is security in knowing there is order in chaos

See the big picture without disregarding what is right in front of you

Dream big!
But remember to take baby steps along the path of manifestation

If you are highly sensitive, shy and struggle with disruptions in routine
Try to embrace the unexpected as a surprise birthday party

In this space you will know the gift of happiness as a realistic way of life

See you further on up the trails,

Ari

Leaping Into the Dreamtime with Lizard

Lizard guides us into subtle powers of perception this week
As we transition through the Autumnal Equinox

Where yin and yang dance together in energetic equality

Now we move further into the dark
Turning our clocks yin-ward

Closing in on the harvest of a “perigee” Full Supermoon
Awakening in our Dreamtime early next week

Do you notice the rising tides and physical effects
From the largest and brightest Moon of the year?

Symbolically, it’s just another case of the end of the world as we know it

Old systems are breaking down . . .
While seasonal changes are in the air

Given that Israel is in many ways is an offshore US base
The Imperial intention should be to support peace in the Middle East

Perhaps you are among a growing body of “highly sensitive people”
Maybe opening up to alternate systems of communication –
like empathy, telepathy and clairvoyance

A fish feeling acute vibrations . . .
Can be a real out of water experience

Building a light-hearted and healthy sense of detachment
around where an individual energy field begins and another’s ends –
Is good medicine for knowing happiness and relaxing attachments

Look into the shadows to where the dreaming resides
No need to fear our own dark sides

Discovering your mysterious power in life will not turn you into
a dark magician or sorcerer like Darth Vader

Just let go and let God
Great power resides in surrendering to an unfolding Divine Plan

The situation is what it is . . .
Might as well say yes to it

Believe in the possibility of a more graceful process through pain
than creating more suffering

Our ancestral kindred spirits knew the reality of the dreaming
The trick in the treat today is to intentionally
weave our dreams into our waking world

That’s all the old guard has been doing to create a collective nightmare
that pits us against one another and
conditions us to believe an illusion that we are separate and disconnected

We are moving through a birth canal of labor pains
Born into a New Age and Paradigm

May our dreams be a lucid “royal road”
Crossing over a clearer bridge between our
subconscious and conscious fields of vision

See you further on down the trails,

Ari

Back to Business with Squirrel’s Spirited Guidance

A Full Sturgeon “SuperMoon” swims into Saturday’s skyline . . .
Leaving behind a red haze all through Universal brain

It’s back to school time for many of our children
Time to get organized and back into a more structured routine

Like the Moon, Nature waxes and wanes
On Autumn Equinox in September

Balance is reflected outward in Yin and Yang’s equal energetic alignment

Masculine and Feminine energies dance together
Showcases a theatrical trailer of equality between the sexes

We bear witness to harmony being a natural and organic process

There’s no need to stockpile weapons of mass destruction
or hoard resources to escalate inequities and underlying resentments

That yield divisive capital that banks on cashing in on
an investment in “us and them” intellectual property

While saying fairly well to Summer . . .
The veil of Fall descends on a colorful backdrop

We are reminded that it might not be dark yet –
But the length of the days are fading more quickly

Crisp Autumn air is eclipsed by three consecutive “Supermoons”
In August, September and October . . .

Changing tides are shifting within
Just as they are riding out the storm fronts in the Great Outdoors

Squirrels like us are already bursting with more nervous energy than usual
Busily foraging in preparation for a cold Winter’s storage

Squirrel serves as inspiration to release clutter
to bring in cleansing new streams of energy

Commanding the field by signaling the cadence
“Out with the old, in with the new”

See you further on up the trails,

Ari

Leaving it to Beaver Means not Falling Behind

Beaver guides us through the dog days of August
Offering multiple maps toward the
Fall Equinox trail head in September

Where light and dark energies
Dance together in an equal flow in the Northern Hemisphere

A powerful eclipse season is blowing in the winds
Gazing along the horizon are three consecutive “Supermoons”
that light up the skies in August, September and October

An evening shade begins to set in our backdrop as
Dark feminine energies rise to reveal
the “thinning of the veils” in later Autumn

Our friends in the South celebrate the opposite side of the same coin with
Spring Equinox – breaking dawn with rising sunlight to climax on their
Summer Solstice during our winter version after a long December

Beaver’s message to us is to “sober up”, become more productive,
get your engine out of neutral and “just do it.”

Its energies assist us in manifesting the Dreamtime into our material reality
We are inspired to build accomplishment, practicality and creativity
into our everyday living

Are the Stock Exchange and the Global Economy ready to
start “investing in loss?” – From an energetically spiritual perspective?

Are we ready to level and heal our divisive and separatist ways?

But be careful of becoming too stubborn, conservative or materialistic
While in persistent hot pursuit of your goals
Try not to get too consumed with the chase or any other emotional
old world seductions like hate or revenge

Letting go and leaving it to Beaver
Remind us to work in harmony with each other . . .

Sharing a space where we honor diversity in our talents, harness our strengths
and support the challenges we face together for fluid group work

With Beaver, there are always multiple routes and exit strategies . . .
So that we don’t get too dammed up in the waterways of collective consciousness

See you further on up the trails,

Ari
