Awakening the Savior: Uranus Retros Back to Pisces

RisaNewSTo my readers: I am seeking a place to live with others in community by the end of August. Is there a community or community house (young and elderly, children, adults, teens, etc. with gardens) in Santa Cruz County? I’ve been looking and haven’t found it yet. Is it yet to be created? Please email me: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

The week: After intense planetary activity, including solar flares (Shamballa force) from the Sun and the magnetic field impacted Earth in previous weeks, the energies slowdown. Friday, Uranus (planet ruling the Aquarian Age, where community flourishes), retrogrades (till March 2011) back into Pisces (sign of saving the world). Uranus stimulates revolution, inventiveness, freedom, new archetypes.

When retrograde, the liberating energy of Uranus builds internally until it explodes! In Pisces and retrograde, Uranus is potent, deeply psychological, analytical, with intuition and revelations occurring at the speed of light. Freedom is re-awakened (think 1960s which our present times reflect on a higher dimension).

Realizing what confines us we radicalize, rebel against obstructions to freedom and the future. Before our external world can change, we must first change (our perceptions, beliefs) from within. Uranus retrograde therefore provides us with time (retrograde) to internally reflect & assess before outer changes manifest. Uranus awakens us from our deep slumber within and thralldom of materiality (excessive). Uranus, the planet of new archetypes for the Aquarian Age, calls us to stand between revelation and revolution, so we can eventually begin become aware of, revel in and reveal both. Humanity together. (More at nightlightnews.com.)

Esoteric Astrology as News for the week of Aug 12–Aug 18, 2010  For Sun and Rising Signs

ariesAries-March 21–April 20
Things unconscious and habitual come to consciousness to be released. All things private will be review, especially your feeling about religion, spirituality, helping others, how you feel when anonymous and behind the scenes instead of being front and center initiating world realities. Anything secret, already somewhat exposed, may have more light shed upon it. Nothing’s private anymore because it’s the past. And that needs shaken up, through interesting coincidences that occur.

taurusTaurus
April 21–May 21
Your circle of friends, groups that surround and love you, accept and listen intently to your carefully researched information. They begin to study what you are teaching for they are devoted to creating all things new. However, a review beforehand is necessary so that the successes of the past can provide a foundation for what is yet to come forth. This is based on visioning, needs, and the requirements of the Aquarian Age. What are they?

geminiGemini
May 22–June 20
There’s a feeling of “been here, done that” and that “isn’t it over yet?” I guess not. There’s a review occurring with your career, how you as an authority relate to others, and toward those in chart. You want to be free of the past. However the past hasn’t revealed all of its secrets yet. More of your talents along with how to approach your work in the world with a dedicated and fully conscious sense of serving need more self-discovery. When you appear, everyone’s liberated. Why would that be?

cancerCancer
June 21–July 20
Will you be traveling unexpectedly? Perhaps travel is already planned. Know something unexpected will occur providing you with a sense of freedom, liberation from difficult feelings, past beliefs, and that ongoing sense of limitation. Notice as you think differently, those that you meet are also different. Tradition is cast to the winds as you begin to cherish and welcome the unconventional. It’s time to study something (unusual).

leoLeo
July 21–August 22
It’s a good idea to tend to money and resources with extra care as something could occur that’s unexpected (again?) especially with shared resources. Keep up with all legal deadlines and matters – taxes, loans, debt. If not taken care of pleasure and ease could be limited and expenditures multiply. Something experimental and unusual will take place. Expect this and maintain balance each day through intentional Right Relations.

virgoVirgo
August 23–September 22
If interactions or relationships seem confusing or difficult, you’ll quickly walk away thinking the situation too hard to bear. Cooperation is needed to understand what actions are appropriate and how to respond if everything feels limiting. Explore ways with those you love that bring about wonder instead of boredom. Explore the impossible, impractical, the unattainable and the unachievable. The outcome is interesting.

libraLibra
September 23–October 22
The habitual, regular, normal, consistent, orderly and routine in daily life, work and relationships unexpectedly change. Anything confining will be liberated, including people, places, things, ideas and beliefs, especially what creates separations, blocking love, in your life. You might feel restless, and so a new rhythm will be found. Unusual methods of healing - laser light, energetic medicine, homeopathy, acupuncture – are of interest. Eventually only the unconventional (read holistic) will make sense.

scorpioScorpio
October 23–November 21
More and more you find yourself thinking unconventional thoughts, doing out of the ordinary activities that actually begin to describe who you really are and provide you with freedom of expression. It would be good to tell close friends and family that you’re moving into an unusual, original, perhaps eccentric period of creativeness. It’s also a time of seeking more play. Unusual attractions occur, too.

saggSagittarius
November 22–December 20
You’ll return to an earlier interest, work, theme concerning family and home seeing how your history and early life interface with and influence your present. Don’t be surprised if home life is somehow disrupted, if time speeds up and slows down (like the tides), if routines keep changing, if decisions are quickly called for while patience dwindles. Hold all these things within a spirit of understanding that there’s no more normal, anywhere. For all of us, this is preparation.

capricornCapricorn
December 21–January 20
A return to a previous place with people previously known has, is or will be happening. You return to a neighborhood from long ago, or think about it to better understand that time in your life. You need new realities, ideas, fields of study, concepts that expose you to the future. Seeking new routines, you might dress, think, relate and express yourself differently. A new life-pattern comes forth. Read Christopher Alexander’s “A Pattern Language.”

aquariusAquarius
January 21–February 18
You are awakening to the fact that you are of great value, something not realized before to such depth. As your thoughts of self as valuable grows, all that you value will change. I have found that without a sense of self-confidence firmly established there is less forward movement because the self doesn’t know what to choose or how to take action. This will change. Watch your finances. Always ask if your choice and actions are practical.


piscesPisces
February 19–March 20
In the next several months you’ll break from the past and all things (people, ideas, beliefs, fears) that have hindered your freedom, self-identity, creativity and self-expression. You trusted others to have your interests at heart. However, you found this wasn’t possible. An awakening is occurring informing you to be strong and make decisions about and for yourself, and to change your image to that of success. You can do this.

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
