Obsessive Beauty

blog_fashionGood Times introduces a new blog to its website, "Obsessive Beauty"
We're slightly obsessed with all things chic, fashionable, and beautiful. Be that a gorgeous trench coat from Anthropologie, a pair of Chanel shoes, a bolero shrug from Target, an indie designer's blouse at Stripe, House of Harlow jewelry at Cameron Marks, beauty  products, fashion magazines, the perfect blow out, well, you get the picture. We're obsessed. We are Leslie Patrick and Christa Martin. Leslie is a long-time freelance writer for Good Times newspaper. You can learn more about her at lesliepatrick.com. Christa has been the features editor at Good Times for the last 10 years. Learn more about her at christamartin.com. Together, we have spearheaded several fashion issues for the newspaper over the years, and now, instead of Good Times covering beauty and fashion merely once a year, we'll be gushing about our obsessions several times a month. Obsessive Beauty is an ongoing blog, written by the two of us.

In 40 years of publishing, Good Times has seen a lot of “bests.”

 

Spring Triangle: Three Spring Festivals—Aries, Taurus, Gemini

The Spring signs Aries, Taurus and Gemini constitute a triangle of force that sets the template for the nine signs that follow and the template for the entire year (Spring 2015 - Spring 2016) ahead. Aries initiates new ideas, Taurus stabilizes the new thinking of Aries and Gemini takes the initiating stabilized ideas of Aries/Taurus and disperses them to all of humanity. It is in this way that humanity learns new things, with the help of Mercury, the messenger. As Spring unfolds, three elements emerge: the Fire of Aries (initiating new ideas), the Earth of Taurus (anchoring the ideas of God through Mercury) and the Air of communicating Gemini. These three signs/elements are the Three Spring Festivals. They are the “triangle of force” forming the template (patterns) of energy for the upcoming new year. After these three we then have the soothing, calming, warming, nurturing and tending waters of the mother (Cancer). Cancer initiates our next season under the hot suns of summer. Planets, stars and signs create the Temple of Light directing humanity towards all things new. March 29 is Palm Sunday, when the Christ, World Teacher, was led into Jerusalem (City of Peace) on a donkey (humility). Palms waving above His head, signified recognition of the Christ’s divinity. Palm Sunday is the Sunday before the Easter (Resurrection Festival). Palm Sunday begins Holy Week, the week of capture, imprisonment, passion, sacrifice, crucifixion, death and resurrection of the christ. All events in the Christ’s life represent events (initiations) that humanity experiences through many lifetimes. We turn our attention to these holy events this week. Their concepts portray and reveal to us greater spiritual understanding. Then, Aries, the “light of life itself” shines through us.

What’s your favorite most recent outdoor discovery in Santa Cruz?

A hike that’s across from Waddell Beach. I didn’t realize you could go across the highway and do a super simple loop, and it’s beautiful. You can see the coastline. Liz Porter, Santa Cruz, Community Outreach
