The Perfect Black Heel

blog_beautyshoeAll I want for Christmas is … a lot of stuff—I have to admit it. If you’re a fashionista, you know what I mean. If you’re a scrooge, you’re judging me. But then, scrooge types probably don’t read this blog. As the holiday season quickly counts down to Christmas, the Obsessive Beauty writers are going to make our secret wish lists known to the readers out there.

So this year, for Christmas, I’d really like a pair of Melissa Temptation high heel shoes. They’re currently on sale at Stripe in Downtown Santa Cruz, and you can also find them at karmaloop.com. The style has been out for a while, so it’s being marked down everywhere. Now, if only someone would give me a pair for Christmas.

The black, shiny, plastic shoes have a four-inch heel and are remarkably comfortable for conquering new heights. By the way, this is the way it goes with any Melissa shoes—they’re made out of recyclable plastic, and in fact the shoes themselves are recyclable. They’re cozy, comfy, and smell like bubble gum.

I’ve been hunting forever to find this type of shoe—something that will boost me up a few inches, be remarkably adorable, and exquisitely comfortable. I found them—online and at Stripe. Now, what else do I want for Christmas?

Libra's Two Choices

Libra (our last week) is the sign of creating right relations and values. In Libra we are asked to choose how to be, our identity in the world. We can maintain a hermetic sealed-off attitude (my life, my work, my money, etc.) or we can gain knowledge of world events and learn more about those in need. Libra is a group sign—self with others. Here are some events occurring in our world this week concerning food, poverty, spirituality, values and global realities. The UN (a spiritual experiment) each month places a “light” upon world problems. This week a light shines on Rural Women, Farms, Food & Poverty. Before we choose to respond we must have knowledge. “So we can each do our part.” Oct. 15 - International Day of Rural Women (unrecognized with few resources); Oct. 16 - World Food Day & Family Farming: Feeding the World, Caring for the Earth; Oct. 17 - Eradication of Poverty Day (international). During the month of Libra (with Saturn exalted), we pause, contemplate and assess what it is we know, don’t know, and need to know. Libra receives and distributes Ray 3 of divine intelligence, right relations, right choice and right economy (Venus). Use your intelligence “tips the Libran scales” in terms of being able to see and then choose between the two paths Libra offers (return to the past or step forward into Scorpio’s Discipleship). Libra (the oscillating light) prepares us for the great tests and conflicts in Scorpio. In Libra we are subtly tested as we learn the nature of polarized energies (s/he loves me, s/he loves me not). In Libra we learn more about ourselves through others. Libra’s Ray 3 asks us to become more adaptable and skillful. And then we are to teach each other what we know. In Libra, we all become teachers. In all these ways love is cultivated.
