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?

See you further up the trails,

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 . . .

Tomorrow is the Winter Solstice . . .

It is the darkest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere

The Holiday season is upon us . . .
Merriment and festive spirits are in the air

It is a good time to come down into our souls and gather with family and friends

But darker days, and mixed-feelings come on strong
that are not always easy to make friends with

In your inner conversations with yourself, try to be gentle on yourself . . .
It is a gift to have a forgiving attitude about your humanity and imperfections –
(and the humanity and imperfections of others)

Being in that space calms down self-inflicted suffering!

Being present with yourself and others
is a far greater gift than getting sucked in to the consumerist
drive to outdo each other with manic striving to buy the perfect gifts

Notice how shopping and work are can easily
become culturally sanctioned addictions

Might as well hit the pause button, take a step back, and
take in the spiritual meaning behind this time of year

Allowing yourself to receive love and be compassionate
is a blessing that is shared by all in everyday exchanges

Meditate on healthy giving and receiving during this time of year especially
Celebrate the rising light and waning dark as it unfolds on Nature’s cycle

There will be a Full Wolf Moon on the first day of the Western New Year
May we discover new tracks into a new world

When I picture Crow, I notice magic and mystery unveiled in everyday life . . .

Ordinary moments that typically appear as mundane, boring or dull
are revealed as extraordinary with opening spiritual eyes . . .

And when contemplating Mercury in Retrograde, fake news,
and general feelings of living in the Twilight Zone . . .

It seems like it is getting harder to discern fact from fiction,
what’s real, and what’s fantasy

We all have to find balance between our heads and hearts
Probably a good time to relax into our intuitive side right now for clarity . . .

Otherwise, trying to find truth through logic
and rational thought processes might drive you nuts

Like the recent tax cut proposals, movement to impeach Trump,
and the powers that be pounding war drums to distract us
from what’s really going on behind the scenes

I think of Lao Tzu when he spoke of the boasting of thieves after a looting . . .

Where did the saying come from that says power corrupts
but absolute power corrupts absolutely?

Does this belief stem from a projection by those who have
never experienced the dimension of
standing in an authentic position of personal authority?

Yeah, darker days might be getting you down . . .

But if you can look at the bright side, remember that we will start
coaxing back the light after the Winter Solstice on December 21

A Full Cold Moon comes out of its Bear cave this Sunday . . .

Dimming lights are slowing us down
Winter is coming soon with Winter Solstice later this month

Mercury in Retrograde amplifies darker days ahead
Shadows of old selves are shedding light onto your awakening new self

Do you see reflections of who you used to be into your mirror today?

Are they aspects of your soul revisiting you to help you
transition into a new season in your consciousness?

See this reflection as inspiration to become the changing you
and let yourself let go of who you were in relation to yourself and others

Picture yourself becoming the new self that you want to see in the world
Imagine a New Earth flowering in your Dreamtime . . .

When you acknowledge that we live in a Matrix that has programmed us with
repetitive and controlling old mental tapes . . .

We open up to imagining ourselves creating novel stories

There is a collective belief that the Earth is a hellish nightmare,
with winners and losers, that’s just the way it was, is and always will be

But Bear reminds us that Life should be sweet like honey!

We are equipped to Intuit wisdom from the Heavens of the Dreamtime
to bring it back into our material world with the grounding power
of wise old trees with roots reaching deep into the Earth . . .

In this space, we are building a new dream for ourselves and our planet!

Last week’s Full Beaver Moon fades into darkening skies . . .
Our clocks turned back yinward

Days are getting shorter in the Northern Hemisphere,
while temperatures are dropping dramatically

Veils are thinning . . .
Making it more challenging to distinguish between physical/spiritual reality

We passed the Samhain – the approximate mid-point
between Autumn Equinox, and Winter Solstice

Now we are moving away from Autumn,
in the direction of Winter . . .

The holiday season is arriving –
Signaling mixed feelings for many of us

It can be seductive to get caught up in
the perceptual reality of lack

Picture a raccoon to help you awaken abundance . . .

Can you see yourself receiving everything you need?

Nature gives us a good opportunity to nurture our relationship
with darker emotions now, if only we come down into our souls

But it is tempting to avoid this process through
chronic distractions and resistances . . .

Consider consciously putting on various masks and exploring
diverse, and hidden aspects of yourself

Sometimes emotional blackness carries venomous bites . . .

But allowing a feminine position of vulnerability
is part letting go of their energetic grip

Do what you can to relax your attachments to the bitter
digestion that can accompany traversing through murky emotional waters . . .

Groundgog Day arrives this week . . .
A passing New Moon, and waxing Full Snow moon is coming soon

The energies of February eclipse season are stirring seeds of change in our world
These rising tides of changes in consciousness are not met without resistance

Just yesterday, Father Time delivered the birth of the
Chinese-Lunar New Year of the Rooster into our Mother Earth

It is also the traditional Imbolc, a time when our ancestors honored
Nature’s halftime celebration between Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox

So whether or not Groundhog sees his shadow,
Groundhog medicine awakens underground forces

May the Goddess Brigid be the fiery light at the end dark tunnels . . .

Meditate on Groundhog’s spiritual guidance on death without dying . . .
What old self needs to die, what New Self wants to grow?

If you are willing to take a deeper and higher responsibility in life,
then you can transcend cause and effect

You can let go of your suffering, and be free from that kind of slavery

In spite of cold weather, and darker days

Groundhog reminds us that the seeds underground
are contemplating the waking up process to blossom in the Spring

Are you ready to tunnel into and examine the catacombs of your soul
to recycle that compost so that it will blossom in the Springtime?

If you take issue with some else’s perceived transgressions . . .
Are you able to express your feelings without going straight outta woodland?

Just because you might feel justified in your emotional expression through
provocative and aggressive language does not make your delivery OK

Love always wins in the long run,
never the dark forces of hatred and bigotry

Part of being human is learning to differentiate and individuated from our
emotions without becoming our emotions

What matters is how we express our emotions
We are more likely to get respect when we give it

Or you can be a victim and continue to live in hell

This requires us to hit the pause button, and stop, think and relax before
responding to the situation at hand . . .

Be the Aquarian New Age transformation you want to see in the world!
