A New Obsession

altFarewell to Obsessive Beauty, hello to The Penny Rose

Dear readers,

As you may have noticed, Obsessive Beauty has been on a hiatus for the last few months. That's because we've been working hard to transition the blog to the web. While Obsessive Beauty will still remain live on the Good Times' website, this will be our swan song. We say goodbye to its home here at GT and welcome its new incarnation at thepennyrose.com.

We hope you'll check out the re-vamped blog. The Penny Rose will cover more topics, reach a wider audience, and incorporate the talents of a handful of writers. While this new blog will continue to remain the only fashion/beauty/design media outlet in Santa Cruz County, we'll now be adding on coverage from San Francisco and New York. The new editorial has been inspired by a 2011 Atlantic magazine article which cited these as being three of the top five altartistic cities in America. At thepennyrose.com, daily posts will follow the adventures of a New York fashion insider, a San Francisco hipster reporter at large, Santa Cruz journalists, an eco-beauty junkie, a fitness buff and an international traveler. Most of all, it's a place to be inspired and discover beautiful things. We hope you will join us. Some upcoming blogs will include a New York beauty balm disaster, a "shop around" Santa Cruz feature, a look at some eco-beauty products, exquisite soap from Bonny Doon, the opening of Stripe for Men in Santa Cruz, where to shop and how to find beautiful things in our beachside town, and much more. Check it out at thepennyrose.com.

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.
