Winds of Change, Uranus in Aries

RisaNewSUranus (revolution, new culture and civilization) entered Aries last Thursday, just after the Gemini/Sag full moon Festival of Humanity. The last time Uranus was in Aries (1927-1936) we had the Jazz Age, the Harlem Renaissance, the Depression, the Roaring Twenties, Roosevelt’s New Deal and the discovery of Pluto. What will happen this time? Sunday morning Jupiter (great expansions) enters Aries (all things new). Tuesday, June 8th, Jupiter and Uranus conjunct (join) in Aries. From now on humanity will be on a journey to a new and unusual place. It could be rebellious and filled with uprisings (Aries, Uranus). The world we begin to live in will make us pioneers, embarking upon a new world, one we must create ourselves. It’s called the “new culture and civilization” and humanity, along with the New Group of World Servers, is being called to create and build this new world. In the times to come not many will be comfortable, some will be called to adventure, others will seek wide open spaces, a better life that goes beyond the bounds of what we’ve known before. We’ll see wild (Uranus) expansion (Jupiter), unpredictable behaviors, entrepreneurial expansions, political and financial unrest, natural disasters, and an action-oriented (Aries) spirit come alive in humanity. Quietly last week Saturn turned direct in Virgo. Saturn enters Libra July 21st. Libra is the sign of balance and poise. Saturn in Libra may safeguard us by restricting, confining and, limiting the energetic boundlessness of Uranus and Jupiter in Aries. We hope this is so. Otherwise, the sky may fall.

Esoteric Astrology as News for the week of June 3–June 9, 2010 For Sun and Rising Signs

ariesAries-March 21–April 20
You’re known for individuality. Only Aquarius rivals you in this. In the weeks, months and years to come this urge for individual creativity and freedom becomes extreme. Because you must initiate changes needed in the present culture, the planet Uranus will radicalize you even more so that at times you’ll feel you have no control. Expect unexpected changes—the Divine Plan to “make all things new”—for which you’re partially responsible.

taurusTaurus
April 21–May 21
You need to be out and about most of the time because you feel at times a certain claustrophobia. Sometimes you find must be and work alone so your intuitive and investigative gifts can be fully accessed. As usual you avoid anything that feels like an opposition, attempting instead to flow with the accepted reality. Something or someone shatters this calmness. It is not comfortable, yet it’s needed.

geminiGemini
May 22–June 20
Your hopes, dreams, wishes, friends, groups and associates seem to go into a tailspin either in your mind or in real life. This is because your life’s goals and ambitions suddenly changed, an unplanned unpredictable event. Your mind moves into confusion and you become unsettled. As your life twists and turns you find yourself becoming liberated and more forward thinking. You didn’t think that could happen.

cancerCancer
June 21–July 20
Flashes of intuition and insight help you make quick decisions that are authoratative, leading others to understand situation often cast in fog, miasmas and illusions. Maintain independent at all costs. However, begin to explain your actions to others so they can understand step by step the why and how of your choices. This makes your endeavors more professional.

leoLeo
July 21–August 22
In the coming weeks and months, even years, notice an advanced philosophy of life that creates a utopian view of how to live your life with others. You may (help) create or join a community with like-minded people who realize the ideas of the past need updating in order to build the new culture and civilization and adopt the Aquarian Laws & Principles. There will also be more travel, to unusual places far and wide.

virgoVirgo
August 23–September 22
Do think about your investments and resources held in common with others. They may begin to behave erratically, with sudden ups and downs. Look into all things financial, attempting to stabilize them. A suggestion is to invest in gold and silver even when the market shifts and changes, maintain these precious materials in safekeeping for coming times. You are intuitive enough to understand.

libraLibra
September 23–October 22
Relationships, marriages, partnerships, close intimate connections may experience sudden change and spur of the moment decisions, the consequences of which last far into the future. Tend carefully to the development of stability through the ability to communicate and thus absorb unexpected upsets. Everything in our lives is turning upside down in order to create new values and the new materialism. This will create new relationships.

scorpioScorpio
October 23–November 21
Nothing routine will occur in your work or health areas of life. The changes that come forth will help develop your ability to express original ideas for the work place. Try not to become too nervous. Instead focus your energy into inventing things. As you upset the apple carts wherever you are, you become the change maker, which is greatly needed everywhere. Tend to you health in between times.

saggSagittarius
November 22–December 20
Within your great level of creativity you find the need for more self-control, which would also provide you with more self-knowledge. This is interesting. Through discipline you come to know yourself, your needs and a new level of creativity. Don’t speculate. That’s costly. Instead focus on independent thinking and how to break with all that old and crying for liberation. What would that be?

capricornCapricorn
December 21–January 20
You attempt to bring constancy and calmness to your home. Know that sudden upsets may occur there along with your seeking more freedom. Attempt to balance your needs with family needs. Give them more responsibilities (teach them first how to perform tasks) and inform them of the astrological energies bringing change. They’ll

aquariusAquarius
January 21–February 18

Be aware that your thinking, communicating and interacting with others will become so spontaneous that changes will begin to appear everywhere. You will unexpectedly strike out in different directions, going here and there. A sort of rebelliousness erupts, an aspect of advanced and new thinking. You will become interested in science, technology and sources of light. And will begin to think more and more about community. It’s where you belong.

piscesPisces
February 19–March 20
You experience your income and finances are not stable. This isn’t a criticism or judgment. It’s simply a fact. And so in the coming times, this will continue. Material things will come and go, unforeseen events will upset plans. This is not due to anything you’ve created. All conditions in our world are changing, even the waters you swim in. The new world is being created. It’s not here yet. We’ve just begun. Stay behind the ferns and rest for a while.

Sugar: The New Tobacco?

Proposed bill would require warning labels on sugary drinks Will soda and other saccharine libations soon come with a health warning? They will if it’s up to our state senator, Bill Monning (D-Carmel). On Feb. 27, Monning proposed first-of-its-kind legislation that would require a consumer warning label be placed on sugar-sweetened beverages sold in California. SB 1000, also known as the Sugar-Sweetened Beverages Safety Warning Act, was proposed to provide vital information to consumers about the harmful effects of consuming sugary drinks, such as sodas, sports drinks, energy drinks, and sweetened teas.

Best of Santa Cruz County

The 2013 Santa Cruz County Readers' Poll and Critics’ Picks It’s our biggest issue of the year, and in it, your votes—more than 6,500 of them—determined the winners of The Best of Santa Cruz County Readers’ Poll. New to the long list of local restaurants, shops and other notables that captured your interest: Best Beer Selection, Best Locally Owned Business, Best Customer Service and Best Marijuana Dispensary. In the meantime, many readers were ever so chatty online about potential new categories. Some of the suggestions that stood out: Best Teen Program and Best Web Design/Designer. But what about: Dog Park, Church, Hotel, Local Farm, Therapist (I second that!) or Sports Bar—not to be confused with Bra. Our favorite suggestion: Best Act of Kindness—one reader noted Café Gratitude and the free meals it offered to the Santa Cruz Police Department in the aftermath of recent crimes. Perhaps some of these can be woven into next year’s ballot, so stay tuned. In the meantime, enjoy the following pages and take note of our Critics’ Picks, too, beginning on page 91. A big thanks for voting—and for reading—and an even bigger congratulations to all of the winners. Enjoy.  -Greg Archer, EditorBest of Santa Cruz County Readers’ Poll INDEX
