Word on the Street

blog_beauty2Don’t you just love when you are walking down Pacific Avenue and see
some smartly dressed person, who just “works” their amazing outfit? Okay, so this may not always be a daily occurrence in Santa Cruz, but
it can be! How, you ask? Well, let me tell you about the amazing blogs
you can visit for your endless inspiration and viewing pleasure of people
rockin’ their look on the street. They may not resemble folks on our particular streets, as
these are images culled from fashionable trendsetters worldwide.

blog_beauty1Hopefully, you
 are already reading The Sartorialist (thesartorialist.blogspot.com) aren’t you? If not, log on immediately to see gorgeous shots of people on the street, who just
happen to dress as though they are taking a break from an editorial
photo shoot. The Sartorialist’s fashionable girlfriend shoots similarly beautiful people on the
street, and you can see her glamorous images at Garance Dore
(garancedore.fr/en). Another place for inspiration is Jak and Jil
(jakandjil.com/blog/), which is again, a fabulous dose of style and
inspiration. So go soak in the style, find your muse, then get out there and provide some real life outfit inspiration for 
the style-philes of Santa Cruz.

Giving and Giving, Then Giving Some More

2014 is almost over. Wednesday, Dec. 17, the Jewish Festival of Light, Hanukkah, begins. We are in our last week of Sag and last two weeks of December. Sunday, Dec. 21 is winter Solstice, as the sun enters Capricorn (3:30 p.m. for the west coast). Soon after, the Capricorn new moon occurs (5:36 p.m. for the west coast)—the last new moon of 2014. Sunday morning Uranus in Aries (revolution, revelation) is stationary direct (retro since July 22). Uranus/Aries create things new and needed to anchor the new culture and civilization (Aquarius). We will see revolutionary change in 2015. Capricorn new moon, building-the-personality seed thought, is, “Let ambition rule and let the door to initiation and freedom stand wide (open).” Capricorn is a gate—where matter returns to spirit. But the gate is unseen until the Ajna Center (third eye), Diamond Light of Direction, opens. Winter solstice is the longest day of darkness of the year. The sun’s rays resting at the Tropic of Capricorn (southern hemisphere) symbolize the Christ (soul’s) light piercing the heart of the Earth, remaining there for three days, till Holy Night (midnight Thursday morning). Then the sun’s light begins to rise. It is the birth of the new light (holy child) for the world. A deep calm and stillness pervades the world.The entire planet is revivified, re-spiritualized. All hearts beating reflect this Light. And so throughout the Earth there’s a radiant “impress” (impressions, pictures) given to humanity of the World Mother and her Child. The star Sirius (love/direction) and the constellation Virgo the mother shines above. For gift giving, give to those in need. Give and give and then give some more. This creates the new template of giving and sharing for the new world.
