Father, Summer & the Oil Spill – One Hot Summer

RisaNewSFather’s Day is Sunday. Libra moon trine Mercury in Gemini creates opportunities for Right Relations (Libra), communicating with feeling (moon) and intelligence (Mercury in Gemini) to our fathers. The sun is high in the heavens now (Tropic of Cancer). Summer, the longest day of light, begins Monday morning (4:28 a.m. West Coast). Soon the sun will begin to move southward, the light gradually decreasing each day. Within the most brilliant light there is also darkness. Duality is presented to us by Gemini. Uriel is the archangel guarding Earth during summer. The fairy world (devic builders) begins to rest, their work creating the plant kingdom complete for the year. Jupiter’s the morning star, brilliant Venus at night.
Oil spill questions: Is the Gulf oil spill the final event that brings down our economy? Was it created intentionally? Is the floor of the sea fractured? Are there eighteen other sites spewing oil. Are two million-plus gallons a day flowing into the sea? Is there a media blackout? Are there 20-mile wide plumes of fire? Is the oil dispersant (Corexit) placed on the waters (the toxic fumes falling from clouds) creating illness? Are geographic areas around the Gulf on lock down? Is this a massive cover-up? Are photographers being threatened? Will nuclear weapons be needed to cap the spill as Russia once had to? What and where’s the truth? And who’s really responsible? Is this a “false flag” event that is now out-of-hand? What will the consequences be on the economy and food supply?  Will there be unrest, will the market fall, and will a massive migration occur? Our world and lives are changing rapidly. There’s an eclipse next seek, seen in parts of the Americas. Astrology provides guideposts for humanity. The heavens tell us we’re in for one hot summer of enormous disruption and unprecedented unrest. Is everyone prepared? Esoteric Astrology as News for the week of Jun 17–Jun 23, 2010 For Sun and Rising Signs

ariesAries-March 21–April 20
You will now feel there is more than enough inner strength and energy to meet all the expectations and demands of work and the world, both self-imposed and from others. You will work till you drop, with something very unusual – detail, order and organization. These you will demand from others as well. Careful. They don’t have your same chart.

taurusTaurus
April 21–May 21
It’s time to come home now. This means from either far away or to simply spend time where you live in order to order and organize it. It’s been a long long time (years?) since you’ve been able to assess needs in your personal life. Since you’re been focused outwardly, saving the world, things at home could be quite in need. Is your home safe from fires? Seeking assistance is practical.

geminiGemini
May 22–June 20
Consider yourself seriously for a while. Allow yourself to think of all the things you need in all aspects of your life. Consider the state of your home and family, your relationships and money, your communication and sense of well-being. Are all these as they should be, do you bring comfort, calmness and ease? Do this life assessment quietly over time. Allow anger to be acknowledged should it appear.

cancerCancer
June 21–July 20
It is good for you to assess the truth, which you glean from your feelings and senses. Then it is good to tell people what it is you feel about everything, even themselves. When we speak the truth about something, fresh air is able to come into every relationship. When speaking the truth, be neutral, ask questions, be kind and courteous. Truth sets everyone free. Thank you.

leoLeo
July 21–August 22
You are being very responsible. You are taking your creative endeavors and applying them to daily life situations. I think actually that you would like to be doing something else in your life that gets you out and about into the wilds, that serves the animal (or bird or fish) kingdom by giving it food, shelter, medicine and comfort. You want to be elsewhere. However, you are here. We need you, too.

virgoVirgo
August 23–September 22
You have new energy, you’re active, self-confidence becomes you, you’re happy, you’re enthusiastic (filled with God), you’re busy, there’s no time for relaxation. When you’re not working night and day, you’re counting your money (or feeling its lack). In terms of money a famous teacher said “don’t’ worry, be happy.” The “happy” brings the resources closer to you.

libraLibra
September 23–October 22
A spiritual essence begins to tincture your daily life. This is good. It will alleviate any sort of judgments you may be carrying since childhood. Those judgments permeate your present life and although you may think you’re happy, if judgments about others persist, they are eventually projected upon all those around you. Even the best of relationships. There is such a thing as forgiveness. It releases us in the same way truth does.

scorpioScorpio
October 23–November 21
What revolution is beginning in your everyday life? What expansion is also simultaneously occurring? What new direction is being taken along with your new self-identity, focus and activities? Everything’s changing for you. It’s not just your perception. Things you’ve waited for will eventually appear. Now all you have to do is begin to organize it all without feeling overtaken, overwhelmed and dissolved. Hang on.

saggSagittarius
November 22–December 20
Remember to do your work and your job with composure, inner poise, exhibiting no pressure toward self or others. You are being watched (scrutinized) as to your ability to create Right Relations, balancing leadership with friendship, keeping the two separate with finesse, elegance, grace and skill. This is quite a job. You most likely already display all of this. Now more is called for.

capricornCapricorn
December 21–January 20
Many days, weeks and months of work reach a summit. If you look back on the autumn of last year, something began. Now it has reached a point of manifestation, of being seen in the world. Perhaps this is you, who is presently always in a state of transformation and transfiguration. There are perhaps lots of thoughts concerning travel, going far away, experiences new cultures, foods, people. Yes, go. There’s a place for you.

aquariusAquarius
January 21–February 18
Tend to money carefully. Put money away for future needs. Always do this second, when money comes in. Tithe some of it first. This assures you a constant supply in terms of your life needs. When we give, more is returned. Humanity is yet to learn this. That the new materialism is the sharing society. You should be leading humanity in this endeavor.

piscesPisces
February 19–March 20
You shift between pain and wounding and comfort. It’s such an interesting polarity. Both can be felt as extremes. However, you are seeking the way in between, the point of poise and you find it a “razor’s edge.” Yes, it is. A crossroads is coming up. A decision, too. You need sensitive handling. Tend to yourself, your money and resources with great care. Talk with family.

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
