This month at Inklings Books & Things, join us as we read "Abarat" by Clive Barker for our Young Adult Book Club! Wonderfully dark, funny, and endlessly entertaining, Abarat is one of the employee's favorite book, which we'd like to share. "Welcome to the Abarat, a vast archipelago where every island is a different hour of the day. Candy Quackenbush from Chickentown, USA, the most boring place on earth, has a place in this extraordinary land: She is here to help save the Abarat from the dark forces that are stirring at its heart...She's a strange heroine, she knows. But this is a strange world. And in the Abarat, all things are possible." As always, book club titles are 10% off for those who want to join, so come into Inklings and pick up your copy today!
Location : Inklings Books and Things, Capitola Mall (next to Sears)

Santa Cruz Gives

A look at the organizations we’re asking you to support in our new holiday giving campaign


Simplicity Preparing for Thanksgiving

When we study and apply astrology in our daily lives, we are anchoring new Aquarian thinking. Study, application and use of astrology, understanding its language, builds the new world, the new culture and civilization. Astrologers are able to plan right timing and right action. Next week is Thanksgiving (Thursday, Nov. 26). It’s good to understand the energies influencing us in the days leading up to Thanksgiving. When we know these things we are able to make Right Choices, have Right Action. We link heaven and Earth, our minds with the starry energies that influence us. Let us consider the following influences. The North Node (point in space where sun and moon meet, representing humanity’s present/future pathway) has just entered Virgo. Virgo is about food, purity, cleanliness, service, detail, order and organization. What can we learn from this? Because these energies are available to us we, too, can have intentions and a rhythm of order and organization, purity and cleanliness. Sunday, the sun enters Sag, joining Mercury (we have high ideals, many goals). Tuesday, Mercury/Saturn (structured disciplined thinking) squares Neptune (thoughts, ideas, goals dissolve away). Wednesday is 3 degree Sagittarius solar festival (full moon). Sag’s keynote is, “We see a goal, we achieve that goal, and then we see another.” We might have many plans and goals for Thanksgiving. However, on Thanksgiving those goals may be dashed. Saturn (structure) squares Neptune. All structures and plans dissolve and fall away. What is our response to this? We simplify all that we do. We plan on everything changing. We don’t fret. We adapt instead. Adaptation is the behavior of the Disciple. Sagittarius is the sign of the Disciple.
