On August 16 and 17th, the newly redesigned Burlingame Avenue will play host to the totally revamped free summer festival, "Burlingame on the Avenue." Formerly billed as the Burlingame ArtzFest, Burlingame on the Avenue takes place August 16-17 and will feature hundreds of artisans showcasing original works of art, photography, sculptures, jewelry, clothing, decor and more. Attendees can stroll rows of booths, speak directly to the artists and enjoy an array of delicious foods and drinks. According to Georgette Naylor, President of the Burlingame Chamber of Commerce, the chamber wanted to get back to the roots of what initially inspired the event: a celebration of community. "The Burlingame Avenue Streetscape Project has been a huge accomplishment for us and for our community," said Naylor. "With the re-branding of this event, we know this will solidify Burlingame Avenue's place as THE premiere shopping destination on the Peninsula." The event will feature many of the favorite components from years past, including an area featuring interactive children's activities, a Home, Garden and Green section, and an eclectic mix of entertainment and live music from bands, including Group Therapy. On Saturday from 11am-2pm, local community performers, including winners of the Burlingame Idol competition, will showcase their talents. Burlingame on the Avenue hosted by the Burlingame Chamber of Commerce and is free to the public.

This ain’t no Burning Man—the MAH’s GLOW festival flames on


Mercury Direct in Libra, Columbus Day, Libra New Moon

Mercury completes its retrograde Friday, poised stationary direct Friday evening at zero degrees Libra. Mercury begins its journey through Libra once again, completing its retrograde shadow Oct. 12. Things should be a bit less complicated by then. Daily life works better, plans move forward, large purchases can be made, and communication eases. Everything on hold during the retrograde is slowly released. Since we eliminated all thoughts and ideas no longer needed (the purpose of Mercury’s retrograde) during the retrograde, we can now gather new information—until the next retrograde occurs on Jan. 5, 2016 (1.3 degrees Aquarius), retrograding back to 15 degrees Capricorn on Jan. 25. It’s good to know beforehand when Mercury will retrograde next—Jan. 5, the day before Epiphany. On Monday is Columbus Day, when the sailor from Genoa arrived in the new lands (Americas), Oct. 12, 1492. This discovery by Columbus was the first encounter of Europeans with Native Americans. Other names for this day are “Discovery Day, Day of the Americas, Cultural Diversity Day, Indigenous People’s Day, and Dia de la Raza.” Italian communities especially celebrate this day. Oct. 12 is also Thanksgiving Day in Canada. Monday is also the (19 degrees) Libra new moon festival. Libra’s keynote while building the personality is, “Let choice be made.” Libra is the sign of making life choices. Often under great tension of opposing forces seeking harmony and balance. There is a battle between our lower (personality) and higher selves (soul). We are tested and called to cultivate right judgment and love. When we align with the will-to-good, right choice, then right judgment and love/wisdom come forth. Our tasks in Libra.
