Sunday is Palm Sunday. Symbolizing victory and triumph, paradise, sacrifice and martyrdom, the Pisces World Teacher entered Jerusalem (City of Peace) on a donkey (signifying humility).

Hello again, Santa Cruz! By now, you’ve probably heard about the merging of Good Times and Santa Cruz Weekly, and I’m thankful to have heard best wishes, suggestions and concerns from so many community members in the last week. It’s been both exciting and humbling, and I’m set for all the work there is to do to carry on the legacy of alt-weekly journalism here.
When you hear the words “vinyl flooring,” what words come to mind? Industrial? Practical? Boring? Maybe that was true in the past, not anymore. Over the years, vinyl flooring has undergone a glamorous makeover, and the outcome is a new product called luxury vinyl tile (or LVT for short). Luxury Vinyl has been around for years. The newest edition to this type of flooring, LVT, has been receiving a lot of attention recently in the design industry because it not only has wonderful aesthetics; it has many other benefits.
Sun squares Pluto Thursday, 2:22 a.m. West Coast time. A challenging and potent transit for the day. Transformative. Summoning Persephone from the underworld. Gemini moon follows. Persephone has lots to say about things hidden, in darkness, seeking the light.

Somebody wise said that when you need a sign from the Universe to help you through life’s more curious moments, you can always find it in sentences that contain three words. There’s “Don’t freak out.” Or “Get over it.” And, of course, the durable “Let it go.” (We could all use a little guidance with that last one perhaps.)
I feel like it would ruin the small old-town feeling of Santa Cruz. It wouldn’t be the same Surf City kind of vacation town that it is.

Home prices have been rising slowly and steadily this year, but according to a recently published analysis from Trulia Chief Economist Jed Kolko, homeownership is still cheaper than renting nationally. Of course, the gap between renting and buying depends on location.
My favorite street performer goes back a few years, when I first moved to Santa Cruz, it's Tom Scribner. And a relative of his was a student in one of the classes I taught maybe 15 years ago.

Last week, Sun entering Aries, the new spiritual year began. Archangel Raphael assumed protection of the Earth. Raphael is the Archangel of Healing. During Aries, Raphael and the Forces of Restoration work together streaming new light and life into the Earth. They come in on the wings of the Spirit of Resurrection.
Aries is the Initiating Will-to-Be, a continuous pulse of the Life Force. Aries’ fiery aethers move through the cosmos seeking where to anchor in form and matter. Mars, presently retrograde, is the personality-ruler of Aries. Mars presents humanity with Nine Tests of the personality. With Mars retrograde our experience of Spring may be subdued, intent as we are on inner tests.

It’s spring and the time is ripe to unleash some good. “Spring cleaning,” too, which is always “good,” but what about spreading some more good juju out there? True, it sounds rather California Woo Woo, but look around—we happen to be in a kind of Mecca. Besides, you’re reading a newspaper with the word Good in its title, so there’s that.
