Saffron and Oak

blog_beautyaObsessive Beauty just stopped by the store, Saffron and Genevieve, on Soquel Avenue, for the open house to introduce its three-month pop up shop, Oak and Co ( This was (how embarrassing) our first time ever visiting the lovely Saffron and Genevieve lifestyle store, owned by Scarlett Reed. The store offers an array of goods: candles, Tokyo Milk lotions and perfumes, charming journals, jewelry, antiques, and more. It has a French Country aesthetic, blended with a rustic vibe. Also being featured for the next three months are clothing and shoes from Oak and Co., a local “green” online retailer spearheaded by Deirdre Holbrook. In addition, all of the cowboy boots that went missing when Scout disappeared off Pacific Avenue have now appeared in this store. Combining lifestyle and clothing together in this beautiful retail space presents a store that you should definitely check out. You’ll enjoy all the treasures inside.

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.
