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!

Two Fish Bound by a Golden Cord

Until March 20, (Spring Equinox), Earth and her kingdoms (mineral, plant, animal, human) experience the influence of Pisces, sign of the World Savior. Whereas the task of Aquarius is as world server, the Pisces task is saving the world—tasks given to the two fishes. Pisces never really enters matter, and as the last sign of the zodiac includes all the signs. During Pisces, having gathered all the gifts of the previous 11 signs, it is a good time to prepare for new initiating plans when Aries (sign of beginnings) begins. No wonder Pisces, like Scorpio, is so difficult (both are ruled by Pluto, planet of death, new life, regeneration, transformations). Both signs (with Scorpio drowning in dark and deep waters) find life on Earth a hardship, disorienting (from the spiritual perspective), at times feeling betrayed. Life is a paradox, especially for Pisces. Each zodiacal sign represents and distributes a different phase and facet (12) of the Soul’s diamond light, Pisces is the “Light of Life itself, ending forever the darkness of matter.” It takes two fish to complete this work (creating eventually an extraordinary human being). One fish turned toward the material world (in order to understand matter), the other fish toward the heavenly world. Around the two fish is a silvery cord binding them together. The two fish are forever bound until all of humanity is redeemed (lifted up into the Light). This is the dedication of all world saviors (Buddha, Christ, the NGWS). Thus the sacrifice and suffering experienced by Pisces. Knowing these things about Pisces, let us help them all we can. Sometimes all of humanity is Pisces.
