Blocking access to UCSC

Blocking access to UCSC

Do you think blocking access to the UCSC campus is an effective form of protest? Why?


Yes, it's an effective form of protest because it gets attention, and that’s what they want.

From the Editor

From the Editor Stop what you’re doing. Sit still for a moment and just ... be. That might prove challenging for some of us. Regardless, there’s no telling what you might observe when you’re not busy paying attention to all the busyness in your life.

Something I noticed: A fundraiser for 7-year-old Ishmael Gomez.

From the Editor Plus Letters to the Editor 

Few would argue that these days, coffee has become more than just about drinking the beverage itself. Especially if you’re out ordering coffee at a local coffeehouse. From the wide range of specialty drinks to the time we actually spend at a coffeehouse—socializing, working and, of course, drinking coffee—our “coffee experience” has become just that—an experience.

Pisces Light, Ends The Darkness

Pisces Light, Ends The DarknessWe are living within the Light of Pisces, the “Light of the World that ends forever the darkness of matter.” Potent words for the two fish, one facing downward toward matter and the other facing upward, yearning for the Path of Return. Connecting the two fish is a silver cord. The Pisces glyph represents the life of humanity – leaving our Spiritual home, entering Earth (form and matter), experiencing passion, suffering, attachments, separations, and eventual liberation and redemption (upliftment of all matter into the Light).

The longer you live here, the more likely you are to develop certain habits. You may like your sushi prepared a certain way, so suddenly you’re frequenting that one sushi spot that totally satisfies you. Perhaps there’s a particular bike spot that just has the right vibe, or a local bookstore whose dedicated efforts to reaching out to the community is something you truly value. Individually, these portals may seem like just another thing that is in your life, but really, they are much more.

Leo Sun; Full Moon, Venus Retro in Leo; Saturn Direct

It’s a complex week of planetary movements, challenges, demands and callings. We’re in the time of the Leo Sun. Leo—fixed fire, gold, the heart, generous, strong, noble, the king/queen—needs appreciation and praise from everyone in order to move forward. During Leo we gain a greater sense of self-identification by recognizing our creativity. It’s therefore a perfect time for Venus retrograding in Leo. In Venus retrograde we review and re-assess values. Venus retro in Leo concerns our self as valuable, acknowledging talents, gifts, abilities and offerings. Friday, Venus re-enters Leo (29 degrees, a critical degree) continuing the retrograde to 14 degrees Leo on Sept. 6. Friday (Full Moon) is also the (8 degrees) Leo solar festival, Festival of the Future. Leo is the heart of the sun, the heart of all that matters. When attuned to this heart, we have understanding and inclusivity. The heart of the Lion is Mitra (think “Maitreya,” the coming World Teacher). Leo prepares humanity to receive divine love from subtle sources and later to radiate that love to the kingdoms. Sirius, Ray 2, where love originates, streams through Regulus (heart of Leo), into the heart of the sun (Ray 2) and into all hearts. The heart of Leo is Regulus. Joining Venus, the love underlying all of creation appears. Saturday is Sun/Neptune (confusion or devotion) with late night Saturn turning stationary direct. Ideas, plans and structures held long in abeyance (since March 14) slowly move forward. (Read more on Leo and the week at nightlightnews.org and Risa D’Angeles’ Facebook page, accessed through my website.)
