Finale Fiesta

blog rene2Santa Cruz invited to support Chris Rene at The Catalyst’s ‘X Factor’ Viewing Party

Who needs tickets to the live taping of “The X Factor” finale episodes this week, when you can be a part of the magic right here in Santa Cruz? On Wednesday, Dec. 21, the community is invited to cheer on local singer/songwriter and show contestant Chris Rene at a special viewing party at The Catalyst.

While Rene will not be present at the event, which kicks off at 5 p.m.—free tickets will be available on a first come, first serve basis at the venue, beginning at 2 p.m. Wednesday—attendees will get to watch the episode on a big screen. The best part? “The X Factor” film crew will be onsite to record the crowd, for a live segment of the episode that highlights Rene’s hometown supporters.

During Wednesday’s show, the top three finalists—Rene, Melanie Amaro, and Josh Krajcik—will battle it out, then the winner will be crowned during Thursday’s episode.

Make sure to get to The Catalyst early to score tickets, then come armed with posters, T-shirts, cowbells (?), and a whole lot of hometown pride. Let’s show the world what Santa Cruz is made of!

Can’t make it? Tune in to FOX at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 21, and don’t forget to vote.

Altars of Remembrance, Forgiveness & Rapprochement

We’re in Scorpio now—things mysterious, ageless, hidden, sometimes scary. Friday is Halloween; Saturday, All Saints Day; Sunday, All Soul’s Day. Sunday morning at 2 a.m. (after midnight), Daylight Savings Time ends. Clocks are turned back. Tuesday is the General Election. Our vote is our voice. Each vote matters. Applying freedom of choice—Libra’s teachings. It’s time to build Halloween, All Saints and All Souls altars—with marigolds, pumpkins, sugar skeletons, copal (incense), pomegranates, persimmons, candy corn and cookies, orange and black. It’s so Saturn (now in Scorpio). Saturn is the dweller on the threshold (like St. Peter at the gates of heaven). Saturn can look like a Halloween creature—a gargoyle—a fantastic dragon-like creature protecting sacred sites. The dweller (Saturn) stands at the door or threshold of sacred mysteries, wisdom temples, inner sanctums of churches, offering protection, scaring evil away. The last day of October and first two days of November, when veils between worlds thin and spirits roam about, are times of remembrance, forgiveness, reconciliation and rapprochement. These actions liberate us. At death, when reviewing our lives and the consequences of our actions if we have forgiven, then we are free, less encumbered with grief and sadness. We place forgiveness on our altars. Happy Halloween, everyone! It’s good to dress up as what we’re afraid of. Or whom we would mentor. Then we become one with them. Note to readers: by Thanksgiving I will need a place to live (with purpose). Please contact me if you know of a place where I can rest for awhile. Teach and build community. [email protected] I will be leaving my mother’s home for the last time.
