Santa Cruz Restaurant Week

Santa Cruz Restaurant Week

A huge part of Santa Cruz Restaurant Week has always been about offering a great dining experience for an affordable price. For some locals, the $25 flat-rate cost has provided the opportunity (or the excuse!) to try new spots, and indulge in Santa Cruz fine dining in a way they might have thought too pricey before.

Understanding Sagittarius and its Symbols

Sagittarius is the sign of direction. The arrows of Sag are sharp, and pointed in a specific direction. The archer guides the arrows toward a specific goal. The goal is truth and justice—the virtues of Sagittarius. The sun transmitting Sagittarius light to Earth has a specific goal—that of justice, truth and right judgment. The sun is the father aspect. Each of us, son/daughter of the father, is to follow the father’s (sun’s) direction each month (different tasks provided in each sign). In Sag we set goals through our imagination (mind). We gather all energies and previous experiences (the food of life) and aim the arrows of our imagination toward our goals. Our imagination releases a light from our head center. In meditation, Jupiter, the lord (ruler) of Sag, provides direction, guidance and expansion. When a sense of direction is rightly developed, purpose comes forth and the personality aligns with the divine plan (God’s thoughts). We are not to look hither and thither for direction. We follow the direction (arrows) set for us by the Soul. Thought has power. When the imaginative mind releases (like arrows) such power in a given direction, the goal is reached. Arjuna, a Sagittarius student, was given right direction by Lord Krishna (the Teacher). Consequently Arjuna fulfilled the plan. In the Bhagavad-Gita, Krishna (the Teacher) of warrior-student Arjuna, says “I am the month of Sagittarius. I am the Teacher and the Teaching.” Artemis/Diana are the female Sagittarius deities. Sag is the photographer. Sag’s focus brings forth expanded awareness and consciousness through Jupiter, the planet of great generosity and love (Ray 2) leading to wisdom. We focus on what presents itself. Sunday, Uranus squares Pluto again (sixth time). It’s the revolutionary transformative agent initiating us into the Aquarian Age.
