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,

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!

See you further on up the trails,

Loon kicks off a deep plunge into dark, mysterious waters of a Full Cold Moon
May Yang’s rising light warm you, beneath your blanketed Dreamtime covers

Last week, the energy of Groundhog tunneled through mid-field,
digging further into Spring Equinox, where light and dark are equal again

And then sunlight will peak on Summer Solstice in June
Picture a summer of love, and let cruelty relax our field of vision

May Loon help you scuba dive into the creative waters of transformation . . .
Reawaken old dreams, while envisioning novelty within everyday doings

Time to let go of old stories, and deeply engrained behavioral patterns
that no longer serve –

What pearls from the oysters can you retrieve from your scuba dives?

Yes, it’s a wild world out there . . .
But it is also a beautiful world!

Remember the mystic swims in the waters that crackpots drown in
Be mindful of your thoughts, and examine them through a gentle deer’ gaze

Loon signals a mysterious horn that lifts the fog if you let it
Be guided through the shady grey areas so they become clearer in your mind’s eye

At the end of the day, alternative energy starts with you!

See you further up the trails,

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!

See you further on the trails,

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,

As a suicide loss survivor, I understand how tragic and painful it is to
lose a loved one to an untimely and unexpected death

Many souls have left our planet at this time of year . . .

Regardless of how our loved ones die . . .
There is a deep hurt from the great void that follows

It can be challenging to hear the flat musical dirge of the funeral procession . . .

Sometimes, we are left with regrets about unfinished business . . .
Revisit those relationships, and picture them now with love and light

It takes letting go of old wounds to
expand personal identity and boundary development . . .

It can be hard to understand how not to take the pain of another personally . . .

This world can be a hard place to live,
especially when you are a sensitive person . . .

It is possible to remain your authentic sensitive self,
without slaying the dragon that breathes fire into your natural entity

But it is not always easy, nor does it always feel good or graceful . . .
Part of healing, is getting scorched

May the light of Christ Consciousness enter your being,
and allow you to feel the joyous spirit of Christmas . . .

Are you following your bliss?

May we see the light beyond our grief and loss . . .

Even in darkness, we all have an awakening light within
that wants to express itself in the outer world

Look at the bright side of Standing Rock,
There is an expression of a powerful solidarity in our common ground . . .

Everyday people are standing up to the Powers That Be . . .
Wounded soldiers, and common folk alike

Look back on the old story of gentle Deer gazing into the eyes of a
powerful Demon blocking the trail on the mountain en route to Great Spirit . . .

Remember that Deer did not back down out of fear . . .
She asserted Her right to climb the mountain to connect with Great Spirit

The way, the truth and the light is listening to Kingdom of Heaven within,
and welcoming the Divine Light of our Being . . .

We all have it, even if we have forgotten

Brighten your spirits by firing up the lights of your inner Tree of Life . . .

Climate Change is an inevitable part of a seismic shift in our
collective consciousness or Great Awakening . . .

It will blow your mind, and shake your soul to its core . . .

See you further on up the trails,

Ari
