Be Still My Heart

blog_cosabella_fashionValentine’s Day brings scores of sultry, skimpy lingerie to the racks in an attempt to lure men into making a purchase for their sweetheart. But ladies, if you have received a bra and panty set of this caliber you know that you wear it once before it becomes forever banished to the back of your underwear drawer for all time. It’s not that it’s not a gorgeous gift, but the comfort factor on these slinky get-ups is slim to none. What you need to do is educate your man on how to buy sexy lingerie that is actually comfortable to wear. Enter Cosabella, the chic and super comfortable Italian brand that has garnered accolades the world over since its introduction in 1983. I recently purchased two Cosabella bras—lacy yet suitable for everyday wear—from Camouflage, and have nothing but praise for the sexy little numbers. Supportive and soft with pretty straps and a construction that does not squeeze or pinch? Sold. With this little secret making you both happier on a day-to-day basis, who needs Valentine’s Day?


Find Cosabella lingerie at Camouflage, 1329 Pacific Ave., Santa Cruz.

Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius

The magical time of Mercury’s retrograde cycle is here once again, until Feb. 11, and then some. The Mercury retro cycle actually lasts eight weeks when we consider its retrograde shadow, giving us six months a year for review. We know the rules of Mercury retro: Be careful with everything; cars, driving, money, resources, friends, friendships, groups, interactions, thinking, talking, communications. Avoid big purchases, important meetings and important repairs. Mercury retrograde times are for review, reassessment and rest. Our minds are overloaded from the last Mercury retro. Our minds need to assess what we’ve done since October—eliminating what is not needed, keeping what’s important, preparing for new information in the next three months (till mid-May). Mercury in Aquarius retrograde … we reinvent ourselves, seek the unusual, we don’t hide, we’re just careful. We live in two worlds; outer appearances and inner reckonings, with both sides of our brain activated. Yet, like the light of the Gemini twins, one light waxes (inner world), the other (outer realities) wanes. Like Virgo, we see what’s been overlooked—assessing, ordering and organizing information. It’s an entirely inner process. When speaking we may utter only half of the sentence. We’re in the underworld, closer to Spirit, eyes unseeing, senses alerted, re-doing things over and over till we sometimes collapse. Because we’re in other realms, we’re wobbly, make mistakes, and don’t really know what we want. It’s not a time for decisions. Not yet. It’s a time of review. And completing things. Mercury retro: integration, slowing down, resolution, rapprochement.
