Please join Homeless Garden Project for a screening of "Not the Other," a 20-minute movie presenting first-hand accounts from homeless members of our community. The film is the result of a year-long project with interview from 40 people experiencing homelessness. This multimedia presentation, with videos, photographs, and text narratives, is designed to demonstrate the wide diversity, and the dignity, vulnerability, resilience, resourcefulness, struggles and strengths of the homeless. Homeless Garden Project (HGP), founded in 1990, provides job training, transitional employment and support services to people who are homeless. The programs take place on a 3-acre organic farm and related enterprises. The Project operates a vibrant community education and volunteer program that serves more than 1500 people each year. HGP Downtown Store features products made in HGP's training program and is open Friday and Saturday, noon-7pm and Sunday, noon-6pm. The event is free, but your purchases, and donations, support HGP's programs.

Libra's Two Choices

Libra (our last week) is the sign of creating right relations and values. In Libra we are asked to choose how to be, our identity in the world. We can maintain a hermetic sealed-off attitude (my life, my work, my money, etc.) or we can gain knowledge of world events and learn more about those in need. Libra is a group sign—self with others. Here are some events occurring in our world this week concerning food, poverty, spirituality, values and global realities. The UN (a spiritual experiment) each month places a “light” upon world problems. This week a light shines on Rural Women, Farms, Food & Poverty. Before we choose to respond we must have knowledge. “So we can each do our part.” Oct. 15 - International Day of Rural Women (unrecognized with few resources); Oct. 16 - World Food Day & Family Farming: Feeding the World, Caring for the Earth; Oct. 17 - Eradication of Poverty Day (international). During the month of Libra (with Saturn exalted), we pause, contemplate and assess what it is we know, don’t know, and need to know. Libra receives and distributes Ray 3 of divine intelligence, right relations, right choice and right economy (Venus). Use your intelligence “tips the Libran scales” in terms of being able to see and then choose between the two paths Libra offers (return to the past or step forward into Scorpio’s Discipleship). Libra (the oscillating light) prepares us for the great tests and conflicts in Scorpio. In Libra we are subtly tested as we learn the nature of polarized energies (s/he loves me, s/he loves me not). In Libra we learn more about ourselves through others. Libra’s Ray 3 asks us to become more adaptable and skillful. And then we are to teach each other what we know. In Libra, we all become teachers. In all these ways love is cultivated.
