Win It and Wear It?—Dec. 16

Blog_obsessivebDear Readers, With you in mind, we’ve been hosting Win It and Wear It contests for the last few months, but lately, it seems that interest in the contests has waned, so we wanted to get some feedback from you. Would you like to see the contests continue? If so, what were some of your favorite things that we gave away that you’d like to see come back? An August Mae ring? Jewelry from Stripe? Accessories from Idle Hands and Wallflower Boutique? Leather from Nuala or a T-shirt from Lex Designs? Beauty products and a free facial from Beauty 360 in Santa Cruz? Lingerie by Manu? What other stores would you like to see us partner with to bring freebies to our readers? Give us your feedback and if it seems like you, the readers, are still interested, then we’ll pick the contests back up.

Thanks for reading, Christa and Leslie

Please bring these back! I so look forward to them and have found new designers and shops because of it! I adore Stripe and t-shirts from Lex. There are so many independents in Santa Cruz Co that could benefit from the publicity. Some faves include Pacific Trading Co, Saffron and Genevieve, Stripe, Rouge, Warmth Company, Outside In...the list could go on and on!

Thank you for the blog, I'm an avid follower!

Santa Cruz Gives

A look at the organizations we’re asking you to support in our new holiday giving campaign


Simplicity Preparing for Thanksgiving

When we study and apply astrology in our daily lives, we are anchoring new Aquarian thinking. Study, application and use of astrology, understanding its language, builds the new world, the new culture and civilization. Astrologers are able to plan right timing and right action. Next week is Thanksgiving (Thursday, Nov. 26). It’s good to understand the energies influencing us in the days leading up to Thanksgiving. When we know these things we are able to make Right Choices, have Right Action. We link heaven and Earth, our minds with the starry energies that influence us. Let us consider the following influences. The North Node (point in space where sun and moon meet, representing humanity’s present/future pathway) has just entered Virgo. Virgo is about food, purity, cleanliness, service, detail, order and organization. What can we learn from this? Because these energies are available to us we, too, can have intentions and a rhythm of order and organization, purity and cleanliness. Sunday, the sun enters Sag, joining Mercury (we have high ideals, many goals). Tuesday, Mercury/Saturn (structured disciplined thinking) squares Neptune (thoughts, ideas, goals dissolve away). Wednesday is 3 degree Sagittarius solar festival (full moon). Sag’s keynote is, “We see a goal, we achieve that goal, and then we see another.” We might have many plans and goals for Thanksgiving. However, on Thanksgiving those goals may be dashed. Saturn (structure) squares Neptune. All structures and plans dissolve and fall away. What is our response to this? We simplify all that we do. We plan on everything changing. We don’t fret. We adapt instead. Adaptation is the behavior of the Disciple. Sagittarius is the sign of the Disciple.
