Win It and Wear It—Nov. 3

blog_beauty_rosenecklaceIn last week’s Win It and Wear It contest, Baylily won a free facial with Beauty 360 Santa Cruz, and Maria G. won a free ring from August Mae. Up next are a T-shirt from Idle Hands and a necklace from its next-door neighbor Wallflower Boutique. The side-by-side stores offer a collection of unique clothing and accessories. Wallflower specializes in the hippie chic look, while Idle Hands makes a nod to Western-inspired wares. The T-shirt here says it all: “I Don’t Wanna Play House.” And for those obsessed with all things floral, there’s a lovely  “red celluloid rose” necklace up for grabs. All you have to do is leave a comment here at this blog and tell us about something that you’re obsessed with. Deadline is Tuesday, Nov. 9, and the winners will be announced on Wednesday, Nov. 10.

I'm obsessed with beauty. I see it all around me. It's a design in nature, in food, in people and what people wear. I love nature inspired creations. In food and in what people wear.

Hey all! Just moved here from sc as a natural chef student! I love wallflower and idle hands:) I wear my wallflower beanie at school sometimes in lieu of my chef's hat. Definitely could use some more merchandise to show off!

Smells Like Team Spirit

The organizers of TEDx Santa Cruz don’t just talk about this year’s theme, ‘radical collaboration’—they live it

 

Pluto Retrograde, Aries New Moon, Lyrid Meteor Showers

As the Lyrid meteors, radiating from the star Vega in the Harp constellation, begin showering heaven and earth with light, Pluto, planet of transformation (or die) turns stationary retrograde (Thursday, April 16), 15 degrees Capricorn. Retrogrades have purpose, allowing humanity time to review, reassess, research and reinvent while returning to previous situations. Retrogrades are times of inner activity, seeds sown in bio-dynamically prepared soil. Pluto retrograde is the most serious and resolute of retrogrades—a pure tincture, or, as in homeopathy, a “constitutional” touching the essences of all that matters. Pluto offers deep insight into confusion or puzzlement and areas where transformation is still incomplete. It’s valuable to have one’s astrology chart to follow what area of life the major planets— especially Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto—are influencing. These outer planets have long-term and lasting effects on our psyche, inner/outer life events, how people see us and how we see and process our world. Pluto, retrograde for five months (until Sept. 24) offers deep earthquakes of change, awakens humanity to the task of building (Capricorn) the new culture and civilization, flailing our inner world about, deepening us until we transform and do things differently. Pluto is an unrelenting teacher. New moon (29 Aries) is Saturday, April 18. With the personality-building keynote, “Let form again be sought.” Mars anchors the new creative fires of Aries into our world. The New Group of World Servers participates together in the new moon festival, while also preparing for the Taurus Wesak, Buddha Full Moon Festival (May 3). Join us everyone.
