A Splash of Spring

blog_beautySEven though it's nearly sandals season, and we've made it through the bulk of April's showers, May and June sometimes bring along a dash of cold weather, blustery afternoons, and chilly evenings. So what better way to celebrate a crisp spring day than with a pop of color and a fashion-forward trench coat. Obsessive Beauty has long been obsessed with this drool-worthy trench coat by Leifsdottir. We first saw it on the Anthropologie website, now it's on sale at Leifsdottir.com, and locally, Pacific Trading Company in downtown Santa Cruz has one more coat like this in stock. With a primary yellow color that's sure to complement most skin tones, this chic trench is a smart choice for covering up on a breezy day, and doing so with aplomb. Dubbed the "Ringmaster Twill Trench," this stunning piece is one-of-a-kind, with exquisite tailoring, a double row of gorgeous buttons, and a figure flattering belt. Pair it with virtually anything for a finished, classy, delicate, feminine look.


The Ringmaster Twill Trench, in primary yellow, is available locally at Pacific Trading Company, 1224 Pacific Ave., Santa Cruz, 423-3349, or at leifsdottir.com (sale section).

Leo Sun; Full Moon, Venus Retro in Leo; Saturn Direct

It’s a complex week of planetary movements, challenges, demands and callings. We’re in the time of the Leo Sun. Leo—fixed fire, gold, the heart, generous, strong, noble, the king/queen—needs appreciation and praise from everyone in order to move forward. During Leo we gain a greater sense of self-identification by recognizing our creativity. It’s therefore a perfect time for Venus retrograding in Leo. In Venus retrograde we review and re-assess values. Venus retro in Leo concerns our self as valuable, acknowledging talents, gifts, abilities and offerings. Friday, Venus re-enters Leo (29 degrees, a critical degree) continuing the retrograde to 14 degrees Leo on Sept. 6. Friday (Full Moon) is also the (8 degrees) Leo solar festival, Festival of the Future. Leo is the heart of the sun, the heart of all that matters. When attuned to this heart, we have understanding and inclusivity. The heart of the Lion is Mitra (think “Maitreya,” the coming World Teacher). Leo prepares humanity to receive divine love from subtle sources and later to radiate that love to the kingdoms. Sirius, Ray 2, where love originates, streams through Regulus (heart of Leo), into the heart of the sun (Ray 2) and into all hearts. The heart of Leo is Regulus. Joining Venus, the love underlying all of creation appears. Saturday is Sun/Neptune (confusion or devotion) with late night Saturn turning stationary direct. Ideas, plans and structures held long in abeyance (since March 14) slowly move forward. (Read more on Leo and the week at nightlightnews.org and Risa D’Angeles’ Facebook page, accessed through my website.)
