Is Burning Man a cult?

Is Burning Man a cult?

People who come back seem to have their own little in-jokes that no one else gets. I still don’t get it, and I don’t think it’s a cult.

Leo Solar Festival Full Moon

Leo Solar Festival Full Moon

We continue in Leo, the sign where humanity begins to recognize itself through creativity and love. Leo flows through the sun, absorbs the heart of the sun and streams into earth and her kingdoms. Love comes directly from Sirius to the heart of the sun into our hearts and minds. Combining the inner esoteric influences of Leo this month, we see great amounts of love and wisdom attempting to penetrate into the earth, providing us with a great opportunity to radiate goodwill, the primary component needed for peace on earth. Sunday is the Leo solar festival at the time of the full moon. The New Group of World Servers will be calling to recognize their gifts so they can turn to the world and offer their gifts. This assists in restoring the mysteries on earth and helps to “seal the door where evil dwells.”

In The Time of Leo: Our Creative Efforts

In The Time of Leo: Our Creative Efforts

In this potent time for planet earth, when missiles are downing passenger planes, humanity seems poised on the edge of World War 3. In this time of Leo, as world leaders are called to display true leadership (power, wisdom, love, intelligence) the New Group of World Servers are called to creatively visualize dialogue and open communication in order to bring about harmony from the present conflicts. Leo is the sign where the forces of light and the forces of materialism meet. Leo is the lion of the zodiac, a fiery and dramatic being, always creating in order to reflect self. Emerging from this creative effort is an awareness of gifts and talents that must be brought forth into the world.

Mars Enters Scorpio: The Nine Tests

Mars Enters Scorpio: The Nine Tests

Over the years I’ve mentioned the nine tests of Mars and Scorpio. The tests are given to everyone—unawakened, beginning to awaken, and the awakened. The purpose is to test our strength, courage, ability to adapt, discriminate and have discernment. To see if we are deceived by illusion or are “warriors triumphant, emerging from the battle.”

Best of Santa Cruz 2015

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
