Does evil exist?

Does evil exist?  Unfortunately, I believe it does. I think when the Universe was created there was no evil. Human beings are greedy, and I think that that’s where evil comes from. I think that religions try to prevent evil, people but they also reinforce it by saying dont be evil or you'll go to hell. I believe that we have to teach people not to be evil, which is sad.

The Light of Life Itself in Pisces

 The Light of Life Itself in PiscesWe have a week of planetary shifts, celebrations, a new moon and a secret birthday. Thursday, Mercury and Chiron team up in Pisces, the sign of compassion and saving the world. Late Saturday night Sun enters Pisces, showering the Earth with the “Light of the World.” “Pisces light reveals the Light of Life itself, ending forever the darkness of matter (ignorance).” All of Earth’s kingdoms absorb this “saving” Pisces light.

From the Editor Plus Letters to the Editor 
I’ve said it before: Santa Cruz is full of inspiring locals. Bill Veltrop is one of them. In this week’s cover story, Veltrop says that he sees the next age to be “a conscious evolution of our social systems.” Those are but a few of the compelling words from the 82-year-old, considered to be the leading architect of organizational design.

What is your idea of a romantic date in Santa Cruz?

What is your idea of a romantic date in Santa Cruz? A bike ride along West Cliff with a stop at Kelly’s Bakery to grab some food. Then continue on to Wilder Ranch to enjoy a sunset picnic.

There’s a Path From Me to You…

There’s a Path From Me to You…We begin the week on Thursday, with Venus joining Uranus in Aries. Venus represents money, resources and values. Uranus “creates the revolution” and needed new archetypes. And Aries initiates “all things new.” The energies are building for a showdown (breakdown) in March. The keynote at this time is preparation.

From the Editor Plus Letters to the Editor 

I like this week’s Quote of the Week. Perhaps we’ve seen each other in the “in between” place? (Yes—that was you.) Clarity, balance, fun. So, how do we embrace all of that effectively in 2012? With Facebook, Tivo, Xfinity on Demand, Twitter, and a slew of other media offerings, sometimes finding that balance is not as easy as we’d like it to be. But, we’re Santa Cruzans, after all, and we don’t need to look far for some guidance and inspiration.

Where do you see media/journalism heading in the next two years?

Where do you see  media/journalism heading  in the next two years? I think that media outlets’ agendas are only going to get stronger, and the way they report the news will be more influenced by those agendas rather than truth.

Neptune Enters Pisces, Aquarius Solar Festival, Saturn Retrograde, Candlemas and the Groundhog & His Shadow

Neptune Enters Pisces, Aquarius Solar Festival, Saturn Retrograde, Candlemas and the Groundhog & His ShadowThursday is Groundhog Day (will the groundhog see his shadow and return to his burrow?). It’s also Candlemas Day, a day of significance astronomically and religiously, signifying a time in between winter solstice and spring equinox. In the Catholic Church Candlemas is 40 days after Christmas. The holy child and Mary are presented in the Temple. Beeswax candles are blessed. Friday, Feb. 3, after 14 years in Aquarius, Neptune enters its own sign of Pisces (after 164 years), remaining there until 2025.

From the Editor The new year is here—the Chinese New Year that is. Yes, the Year of the Dragon officially began earlier this week, and those who are drawn to Chinese astrology may be happy to know that the Year of the Dragon promises to hold great transformation. According to one report, it’s also The Year of Journalism. That’s a good thing, considering what journalism, and journalists, have gone through in the last five years.

Desalinization issues continue. What are your thoughts?
I’m thinking it may be a good idea. I’m concerned with the cost but our need for fresh water is only growing.

We Hold These Truths to Be Self-Evident

Saturday, July 4, is the 239th birthday of the United States, commemorating the signing of the Declaration of Independence (the U.S. astrology chart has Aquarius moon—freedom for its people, by its people). Cancer, a liberating and initiating sign, is the “gate” where Spirit enters matter. Cancer receives and distributes Ray 3 (Divine Intelligence) and Ray 7 (new rules, new rhythms, new free nation under God). Cancer represents an intelligent freethinking humanity that can and must create right economics for the world. This means a policy of sharing, an opportunity for the U.S. when Venus (money, resources, possessions, etc.) retrogrades July and August in Leo (the heart of the matter). The United States has a unique spiritual task for the world: to lead humanity within and toward the light, accomplished by its people who must first awaken to this task, learn discrimination and be directed by the soul to assume the Herculean task of spiritual world leadership. Let us review the first words of our Constitution: “We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union, establish justice, ensure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this constitution for the United States of America.” Let us form that union together. The following is a review of the spiritual tasks for each sign. Read all the signs. They all apply to everyone.
