The Great Awakening Proceeds

RisaNewS

New energies and impulses from the heart of the Universe are beginning to critically influence life on Earth (and on all the planets circling the Sun). These energies are accelerating all events, creating a trajectory of force and of progress directed only toward the creation of the new age.  A stream of Love (a golden light) from Sirius into the heart of the Sun and into all hearts is preparing humanity to meet these new impulses with inner strength and courage. As three great life cycles end (Dec. 21), humanity is called to break free from old forms and break out into new forms of creative self-expression and communication. This time on Earth, planned since the “night of time,” is preparing humanity to take the First Initiation. Assisting in this is Wednesday’s Mars/Saturn in Libra. Pushing (Mars) humanity forward into a new state of discipline (Saturn), informing humanity that we are the “World Disciple.” There will be a tug-of-war, between the old and the new realities. Notice this in all relationships. Mars and Saturn - destroying crystallizations in order to rebalance (Libra). This evolutionary force is directing humanity to the Path of Return, providing humanity with a choice (Libra). All realities obstructing or denying the new energies will eventually cease to exist. There is no longer any lifeforce supporting them. With Leo and the Sirius force, we become sensitive to being free from the past. Knowledge of these things creates the Love that liberates us. And so, as the Lords of Flame (Leo Hierarchy) lead humanity forward into the new world, Earth’s electromagnetic field lessens (moving toward zero-point) and polarities increase. In the difficulty, stress and crisis, the great awakening proceeds.


Esoteric Astrology as News for the week of Aug 9–16, 2012 For Sun and Rising Signs

ariesAries-March 21–April 20

There may be that tug of war in all interactions, with intimates, close family and friends. A new cycle begins in all relationships. Equality will be demanded by everyone. You can help this to occur, offering them freedom that comes with unconditional love. With children this love is offered through loving structure and intelligent discipline. Always I write for you to ask, ”How do I love more?”



taurusTaurus April 21–May 21

You begin a new cycle of planning new structures and realizing a new and higher level of service—your health, daily work and those you work with are significant in this. Articulate that everyone is always in service so that everyone understands. Also, new skills will need to be developed as new opportunities come forth. There is something about family resources that needs tending. You must lead in this endeavor.



geminiGemini May 22–June 20

During this Mercury retro the subject has been creative self-expression and offering others important information for the future. Now this self-expression includes enjoyment, playfulness and pleasure. What would that be for you? In Mercury retrograde we assume the qualities of Virgo. What are you pondering upon so deeply? Is it about the past? Your family perhaps, how to lead or something in your relationship?



cancerCancer June 21–July 20

You think about your home and family, especially about one of your parents. You wonder what you are doing in the place where you live and if you are to move. You want a new foundation from which to live, work and garden in a true and sincere community. You need a Gate to walk through, a sense of leadership to lead with. Pray for these with dedication.



leoLeo July 21–August 22

It’s good to look at your outer environment. Does it need tending? It’s good also to walk through the rooms of where you live to see what care and upkeep they need. It’s also good to be in touch with your siblings, creating a newer deeper level of communication. If it’s your birthday this week, communication with your angelic protectors will help you navigate the new intelligent disciples needed to enter the Raincloud of Knowable Things.

 


virgoVirgo August 23–September 22

If you listen quietly to your heart and mind and observe carefully your daily life, and if you ask yourself about your values, you will realize, if awake, that they have changed over the years. It is no longer viable to maintain previous values. In order to evolve, move more closely to the Path of Return, your values will need to expand into greater, more mature and responsible levels of harmony toward all.

 

libraLibra September 23–October 22

Something new is occurring in your physical body. Perhaps it’s a health-discipline that will change the shape of your body. Perhaps it’s your self-image, where you begin to value family more and understand your purpose within the family. Perhaps you’re forced to adopt newer disciplines to maintain the quality of your life. Whatever is changing, it’s good and purposeful. It’s also to go back in time and forgive.



scorpioScorpio October 23–November 21

Something in your life is being gathered into a harvest. Perhaps great sorrows or death experiences, perhaps realizing all you’ve done in the world and there is a gathering of gifts offered to those in need. A great compassion falls upon your heart. You realize life isn’t a movie or a film. It’s real and you play the leading role and this life determines your next. A ponderous thought.

 


saggSagittarius November 22–December 20

You may soon find yourself going to and fro between old sets of friends, groups, hopes, wishes and dreams and new ones. The latter will be gathered slowly. But some have already appeared. You will also consider what new goals, ambitions and views of the world are changing your ways of thinking and relating. How is your heart lotus? How are your finances?

 


capricornCapricorn December 21–January 20

In the public eye you are a rareness of many gifts often not fully understood. You bring both force and stability to all you do in the world. A new cycle begins with your work, profession or who you are in the world. You can expect more responsibilities, praise, recognition, perhaps a promotion. This will positively affect your family and loved ones.

 


aquariusAquarius January 21–February 18

There are many possibilities for Aquarians in the coming months based upon their states of awareness. Influenced will be new cycles of learning, possible teaching, long and adventuresome journeys and for the very few, the building of the new- era community and culture. For all Aquarians a wider view of reality emerges and this propels you into new areas of work and a different daily life. One you hoped for.

 


piscesPisces February 19–March 20

It’s good to begin to eliminate all that is unnecessary in your life, especially what in your environments has not been used in the past many months. This will allow newer, finer energies and resources, infinite and abundant, more appropriate to the coming times, to be available. Be prepared for unexpected losses. But this has been occurring for a while now and you have become somewhat adaptable. Take Ignatia Amara (homeopath) for grief.

Best of Santa Cruz County 2014

The 2014 Santa Cruz County Readers' Poll Come on in, and have a look around. There’s a lot to see—hundreds of winners selected by thousands of GT readers across Santa Cruz County. So if some of this looks familiar, it’s probably because you helped make it happen. But there are always new things to discover, too—you could go to a different winner or runner-up every day in the Food and Drink category alone, and you’d be booked just about until next year’s Best of Santa Cruz County issue comes out.

 

Something Essential Disappears

Lunar and solar eclipses follow one another. Lunar eclipses occur at full moons, and solar eclipses at new moons. Two weeks ago at the full moon we had the blood red moon—a total lunar eclipse (the next one is Oct. 8). On Monday night, April 28 (new moon), as the Sun, Moon and Earth align, a solar eclipse (Sun obscured) occurs. Eclipses signify something irrevocably is changed in our world. The Sun is our essential life force. Monday’s new moon, 9 degrees Taurus, is also an annular solar eclipse when the Moon moves centrally in front of the Sun, yet does not cover the Sun completely. The Sun's outer edges, still visible, form a “ring of fire” around the Moon.

 

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.

Palate-Stretching 101

A wine education with Soif’s experts As a veteran of many weekend wine “seminars” at Soif, I have to confess that I’ve never known less (going in) and learned more (coming out) than I did last week at the Spanish Wine Tasting with ace rep Brian Greenwood. These are classy, casual events and it’s hard to imagine having this much flavor fun anywhere for $20.

 

Martin Ranch Winery

Sauvignon Blanc 2011 One of my favorite wines is Sauvignon Blanc, and this one made by Martin Ranch is particularly lovely. Bright, crisp and refreshing, it’s perfect to pair with fish and shellfish—and good for picnics as it has an easy screw-cap bottle. There’s nothing worse than setting down your blanket, pulling out your sandwiches—and then realizing you don’t have a corkscrew.

 

Foodie File: Red Apple Cafe

Breakfast takes center stage at Gracia Krakauer's Red Apple Cafe Before they moved to Aptos, Gracia and her husband Dan Krakauer would visit friends in Santa Cruz County and eat at the Red Apple Café all the time. Then they moved up here from Santa Monica five years ago, and bought the Aptos location (there’s a separate one in Watsonville) from the family who owned it for two decades.

 

How would you feel about a tech industry boom in Santa Cruz?

I feel like it would ruin the small old-town feeling of Santa Cruz. It wouldn’t be the same Surf City kind of vacation town that it is. Antoinette BennettSanta Cruz | Construction Management
