A New Moon arrives tomorrow
Reflecting new opportunities and beginnings

Bat’s energetic footprint is symbolic of metamorphosis and change
Colorful Autumn leaves are fading, falling and dying

A metaphorical death of the old self
Hangs on by a thread like the ways of a dying old world

Bat and New Moon hint at the rebirthing process
cross-pollinating the fruits of an Aquarian Age

Meditation on Rome, reveals Trump is like megalomania emperors of an old age
But the Eternal City wasn’t built in a day

Like overthrown dictators of past lives, his time is going to come

Out on the streets, civil disobedience inspires a rising tide
of waves of change that will inundate even the Buddha and Christ
from deeper and higher dimensions

Time to surrender to the will of the Universe
and let go of the pyramid and elitist rule by the few

Moving further into our mysterious feminine sides
awakens the power of water

Flow with the gentle, gradual and softness of yin’s momentum
Tis the season to turn our clocks back yinward

Use the energies of the New Moon and Bat
to release your old self that no longer serves you
and see yourself transforming into who you want to become

Till we meet again along the trails,

Coyote appears along the trails this week
The tides of a Full Sturgeon Moon roll in to soulful shorelines

We are about to enter into another powerful astrological eclipse season,
and Mercury in retrograde will rise again in our collective consciousness

What past selves, or old relationship issues are revisiting your consciousness?
And our greater global community?

Have you noticed recurrent themes hiding behind any internal blockages –
maybe from shortcuts or bypass lanes you might have created
to protect against new growth opportunities?

Hard to believe summer is waning in a downhill gait
Subtle evidence of Fall is whispering in the air

Squirrels are dropping acorns with greater industry
as tree limbs are shaking in preparation for cold nights ahead . . .

Can you appreciate how they channel their nervous woodland creature energy?

Coping with life anxieties is really about how you
approach these challenges as opportunities for letting go of coveted outcomes

Coyote’s wisdom is about learning how to chuckle at your follies
Balance comes through laughing at Life’s insanity
without going straight outta woodland

A feminine truth about natural and chaotic ways of unpredictable mystery,
reveals a fair and balanced security system in the magic of dark unknowing forces

So, we have con artists convincing their mirrors
that they are the gods we should follow

Just be wise to that old act, instead of fooled
into getting swept off your feet by the peddling of fear and hate

And here’s a coyote tricky truth . . .

You are as much of part of that apparent stranger on death row,
as you are part of Donald Trump

Or anyone else you either put on a pedestal or demonize

It can be hard to see yourself in the other person you criticize
or whatever they are doing that bugs you, or moves you emotionally

Behind every furrowed brow or sarcastic snicker
lives dark emotions, and a universal sadness that grieves

With potential for a deeper passage into the channels of empathy

See you down trail,

Sea Gulls symbolize subtleties in communication . . .

Part of mindfulness is noticing body language,
and other non-verbal ways of communicating with each other

But paying too much attention to the depth of subtext,
Might make superficial conversations a challenge

It is easy for folks following a spiritual path to forget how to enjoy themselves
and take the wicked ways of the world too seriously

But if you are not feeling joyful,
what can you do to awaken that experience in yourself?

By examining your inner world in this way, perhaps you might be able to let go of
seeing yourself as a helpless bystander

When you choose to not take the happenings around us personally,
you end up feeling more empowered and less swayed by the ways of the world

Spring Equinox arrives this Monday . . .
Masculine and feminine energies are in equal alignment with one another

In the Northern Hemisphere, darkness is waning, while lighter days intensify
Til the sunlight peaks on the Summer Solstice in June

In the Southern Hemisphere, it will be their Autumn Equinox
Their days will become darker until their darkest day on their Winter Solstice

Beneath life’s herrings, Nature reveals to us opposites are everywhere . . .

Yes, we have lived in a patriarchical dominated world for a long time

But there was a time when matriarchal societies abused their power too
Can you see how a fear of feminine power turned into oppression of women?

Magic, mystery and darkness do not need to be suppressed or repressed
Besides, we tend to fear what we don’t understand

So it stands to reason that we can work on building empathy, curiosity,
and understanding toward others first, before we are understood

Sometimes, silence is a higher spiritual form of communication

Next time you find yourself waiting to speak your mind,
try keeping spirit in for a moment by relaxing your mind, and holding your tongue

Something to chew on,

Ari

A Full Worm Moon arrives today along with Daylight Savings Time
Spring Equinox signals the official first day of Spring on March 20th

But seasons don’t come and go in concrete steps in Nature
Her feminine power isn’t always cut and dry like that

Last week, we swam into deeper spiritual waters with Dolphin
Their energies lighten up our energy fields by breathing in
fresh air of play and curiosity in this reality

Imagine being as joyful about seeing humans hanging around
as you might be about living creatures like dolphins or otters

We can learn to connect in our hearts like they do,
yet without sacrificing our intellect

Otter, like Dolphins know how to be playful,
even when minding their daily business affairs

Seriously, you are not a dopey dwarf for whistling while you work
or laughing at yourself with compassionate light-heartedness

The gravitational pull of our world is heavy and serious enough . . .
But don’t let that take away your right to experience enjoyment

Otter can facilitate a sweet sense of surrender,
and relax control issues

Paradoxically, there is security and empowerment in
realizing that no man is an island . . .

Your spirits will feel less tangled up in the blues when you calm
the need to control, and micro-manage every move

The energy of Otter can help you swim into
feminine waters and soften your edges

Through cooperation, we can build new forms of competition that awaken
new co-creative ways toward spiritual balance in our world

See you further on up the trails,

Dolphin guides us into creative yin waters,
Swimming into feminine depths, a masculine dominated world-view relaxes

There are intrinsic caverns inside your soul
that warrants soft, watery attention

A Full Worm Moon and Spring Equinox energies are arriving . . .
In spite of Winter’s frozen grounds, waning dark nights, and cold weather . . .

The forthcoming Full Moon remembers the wisdom that
the early bird gets the worm

But not at the expense of living in the present moment
or abandoning the wonders of Nature

The winds of change are blowing out and about . . .
How do you choose to ride out the storm front?

Divine Law reveals masculine and Feminine energies dance
in affirmatively active equal dance-steps

Nature celebrates equal light and dark alignment on Spring Equinox . . .

Let this energetic push for economic equality between the
sexes level the playing field!

May this encourage humanity, and all sentient beings to live in win-win realities!

Whale guides us into the realm of our soul’s purpose
When we honor the depth of our inner waters, we awaken the magic of joy

We are living in dangerous times, and the appeal to nationalism is rising
The Military-Industrial Complex fattens itself with protectionist alliances

Authentic purity is about aligning with the Universal pillars of Love and Truth
Tapping into our soul potential awakens deeper seas of freedom and empowerment

We are social creatures that should care about our entire pod
But not at the expense of getting caught up in the undertow of a herd mentality

Waking up to Karmic responsibility does relax a sense security and comfort
There is always a price to appeasement and keeping the peace

But inner peace will reflect in our outer world with greater cumulative power than
the control of Big Business governing and micro-managing our free-spirited Nature

The same rings true in personal relationships

The ghosts of Winter and yesteryear are here to remind us of
where we were and where we are heading

Picture a Whale to dive into the living memory of Mother Earth
Swim into new leagues of empathy

Spring is arriving, and its accompanying Equinox rolls in the later tides of March
Energetic equality dances again where light and dark are in alignment

But before that, a Full Worm Moon arrives with Daylight Savings Time
on Sunday, March 12

See you further on up the trails,

We are now in a Pisces time of year,
where our souls want to surf the mutable waters of changing tides

Time to venture deeper and higher into spiritual authenticity . . .

A New Moon and round two of February eclipses are arriving
Death of Winter, past lives, and an old age is becoming more real

Turtle is here to remind us to take shelter from the storm
Paradoxically, letting go of control awakens new beginnings in relationship

Now is the time to nurture and honor relationship with Higher Self
Love is patient and kind . . .

Turtles have been around longer than dinosaurs
They are survivors, with ancient wisdom

Turtle guides us into a Higher vibration of Love
In this dimension, we understand love is about letting go of what we fear of losing

Love is not about trying to control, change or fix someone else
Love is beyond an intellectual concept that resides in the ego’s illusion

Love is beyond tit for tat, manipulation or using your snake oil to
enchant someone else to bend their will to your bidding

A majority of people out there either think they love or hate Donald Trump
But those base emotions just feed his ego, and energize his narcissism

Not to mention drain your own energy field and gives away your power
That isn’t going to help us co-create a New World

President Trump is a metaphor . . .

His presence here is a sign of the times – a key dynamic to
becoming the change we want to see in the world

At the end of the day, any con artist with the King Midas touch is conning himself
by believing that everything he touches will turn to gold

A Phoenix doesn’t rise until it has burned in the ashes first
This is symbolic of where we are at on the clock of Father Time

Empathy in action realizes that President Trump is part of us, like a grain
of salt or star-dust in the cosmos – none better nor worse than another

Spring is arriving, and pretty soon light and dark will be in alignment again
on Spring Equinox in later March . . .

Energies are intensifying, and it becomes a time ripe for action
as we move further into the masculine energies of yang’s light

Remember, we are all One, albeit diverse expressions of Great Spirit

See you further on up the trails,

Ari
