Human-Angelic Communication

RisaNewSWe are in the month and sign of Cancer (crab, scarab, tortoise). On the personality-building level, Cancer is about mother and nurturing, birth and nourishment of all life. On the Soul level, Cancer is about developing intelligence (Ray 3), intelligently working with all the kingdoms, and thus creating a new world (Ray 7).
Because Cancer is the sign of humanity (the masses, ruled by the moon) and the sign where Spirit enters matter (the Gate), during the month of Cancer humanity reviews life and world events for the purpose of preparing for the coming year (autumn, winter, spring).
As of this writing, Arizona and New Mexico are burning from wildfires and many states if not experiencing record triple-digit heat have flooded farmlands. We can help. Humanity has the ability to communicate with and ask assistance from the elements (earth, air, fire, water) and the devic/angelic kingdoms who live in a world parallel to yet within the world of humanity. We can invoke (ask) the water devas to bring rain and cooling temperatures and the fire devas to assist in extinguishing the fires and lowering the temperature.
This work of human and devic/angelic communication calls for a deep connection with nature, a contact that releases love and assistance to humanity. We knew of these things long ago. We haven’t forgotten. In our world today, as all realities are breaking down, let us begin again to interact with the nature kingdom. Actually, in the Aquarian Age, to build the new culture and civilization, humanity will need to work directly with the devic/angelic kingdom - the builders of form. This was the purpose of the founding of the Findhorn community in northern Scotland and this purpose remains for all of us today.

Esoteric Astrology as News for the week of Jul 7–Jul 13, 2011 For Sun and Rising Signs

ariesAries-March 21–April 20
Your focus needs to be on home and family. A new reality must occur there and you are called to bring this about. You must have as tools loving intelligence and intelligent love. You might also take the reins in the kitchen, nurturing others through food. Aries’ cooks need everything fast and quick or interest and energy are easily lost. Don’t give up. Make contact with family far away. Build, tend to and fix a gate.

taurusTaurus
April 21–May 21
You’ll have family memories especially about mother. Perhaps your memory will serve as a way to better appreciate your origins. You may also recognize that although you’re still influenced by childhood patterns a new sense of self-liberation is also occurring. You may find yourself in a car driving somewhere far away, perhaps seeking a new sustainable way of life. Keep driving.

geminiGemini
May 22–June 20
Are you needing to make financial decisions? Although, you already know what you’ve done in the past, new ideas are coming forth on how to use resources more wisely and for a future goal. An interesting idea is a visualizing journal. Write down that each day you make one thousand dollars. Each day you must spend half of that. What would you do? While teaching Montessori I taught the children to tithe. Are you tithing?

cancerCancer
June 21–July 20
Furthering our self-esteem is something we must consider now and then. What would further your self-awareness and self-esteem? Do you need new clothes and shoes? Does your home environment need cleaning, clearing and reorganizing so you can initiate a new phase of life? When our environments are ordered we create a fertile field where spirit enters matter easily. Plant flowers. Happy Birthday, too.

leoLeo
July 21–August 22
You may enter into a sort of solitude. As you attempt to forgive separations you must realize your need for closer contacts with others. A seed is being planted within concerning goodwill toward others, something that’s in your heart but not always in your actions. Allow yourself a little phase of moodiness and non-discipline. Then be willing to activate Love/Wisdom. That needs an open heart.

virgoVirgo
August 23–September 22
Are you busy with ideas impressing your mind with possibilities? Remember to balance your mind’s activity with physical activity. After your long daily walks, consider a change in appearance - clothes, hair, shoes. Don’t forget the apparel no one sees. Find the finest, the most well-made, the best and most comfortable. This is a part of your new, well-dressed creative self.

libraLibra
September 23–October 22
There’s much to do behind the scenes. Take each day and accomplish one difficult task at a time. Eventually everything will be completed and you’ll feel pride of accomplishment. You’re so busy; travel may be an unavailable luxury. However should you take to the roads, gather information, photograph, write about what you see, experience, discover and the foods you eat. Everyone’s interested.

scorpioScorpio
October 23–November 21
Deep within where no one really sees or understands, you have a perennial question. You wonder where and what your purpose and place is. As you observe others they seem to know something you don’t know. Is there someone in your life who listens? Now is the time to speak with them. It’s a good time to travel and absorb new ideas and cultures. You find answers there.

saggSagittarius
November 22–December 20
Careful with spending as you could assume a debt or overspend very easily. On the other hand you may finally begin to be more practical concerning how to use money and resources. When you do so a lifetime after lifetime lesson will have been learned. At first we simply overdo things. Then we finally learn how to balance and harmonize all that we have. You’re in between, slouching toward harmony.

capricornCapricorn
December 21–January 20
Your life’s focus, as you most likely realize, is on those close to you. They influence you and you them. It’s most important now to bring forth greater nurturance, kindness and care but within a practical discipline. You’re also to ask for this in return - from everyone in your life including children, family and especially friends. Sometimes others don’t know how to nurture. Well, then, you are to teach them. One more task, yes?

aquariusAquarius
January 21–February 18
Your life is most likely very unusual with a unique sort of reality and different ways of doing things. You’ve taken the road less traveled, which is courageous to some, but for you it’s your only choice. While freedom is your priority friendships give significant meaning to your life. They’re your resource and when giving to them, you’re nurtured. It’s good to nurture this. Goodness creates your light.

piscesPisces
February 19–March 20
Ask yourself what plans make the most sense concerning your future care and safety. You will experience much change in the coming month, meeting and seeing different people and places. In the meantime you need a daily environment that includes stability, beauty and regeneration. Careful with all interactions and relationships. Learn how to disagree with goodwill. A difficult task you can accomplish.

The Thought Form of Solution

It’s our last week of Leo before the sun enters Virgo (next Friday/Saturday). The planets this week make complex patterns and relationships (vibrational cadences and rhythms) with the outer planets, mainly Neptune—the planet that veils, obscures, protects and finally refines us. Neptune offers us entrance into a deeply spiritual sense of comfort and solace. Neptune is the personality ruler of Pisces (saviors of the world) and soul ruler of Cancer (world mother). “The fish goddesses who leapt from earth (Virgo) to water (Pisces) unitedly give birth to the Fish God (Christ, the Soul) who introduces the waters of life  (Neptune & Aquarius) into the ocean of substance (matter, mother bringing light to the world. Thus does Neptune work.” (Esoteric Astrology).

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

 

Have Mercy!

Looking for a frisky summer wine at a reasonable price? Look no further than Mercy Vineyards’ 2013 Sauvignon Blanc ($20). Richly textured “with an exotic flavor profile,” the wine reveals aromas of honeydew melon and honeysuckle, with anise appearing as a star attraction. Smidgeons of pineapple and honeycomb add a touch of sexiness to this well-balanced, easy-drinking wine, which pairs well with a variety of cuisine —especially ceviche, calamari and other not-too-heavy foods.
