Love/Wisdom, Ray 2, Streams to Earth

RisaBoth Venus and Mars are in Gemini, sign of duality. If we observe our lives we will see duality come to life. Venus and Mars are also the lovers Psyche (feminine) & Eros (masculine). Gemini’s energy, although dual at first (the two parallel lines indicating two realities, also the World Trade Center buildings) thus always providing humanity with choice, eventually synthesizes as the two lines (brothers) form a triangle with love at the apex. This is the secret of Gemini energy, people, events, times and a certain area in each of our astrology charts.

We are now in the month and sign of Leo. Leo (and Rays 1 & 5) flows through the Sun, absorbs the heart of the Sun (Ray 2, Jupiter) and streams into Earth and her kingdoms. Love comes directly into our hearts and minds. Combining the inner esoteric influences (Love/Wisdom, Ray 2) of Leo and Gemini (Ray 2) this month, we see that great amounts of Love/Wisdom are penetrating the Earth providing us with a great opportunity to radiate Goodwill, the primary component needed for peace on Earth (allowing the Christ to reappear as the Aquarian Teacher). Thursdays are dedicated to the Reappearance Meditation/Invocation. (Read more at nightlightnews.com.)


ARIES (March 21-April 20) Do you feel as if you’re on a cross, divided intensely between four ways, standing in the middle wondering which paths to conquer next? There are some past issues that need tending and bring to a close before you will know how to proceed. They are being illumined for you now so look around, assess, ponder, pray and have the intention to complete all things unfinished. Then the next page of your life turns.

TAURUS (April 21-May 21) Keep going into the future even though many pressures pull you backward. The new realities must be brought forth and they are to be done through each of the signs. You being Taurus have the illumination needed for others to understand just what plans and purposes the future will bring. You have a model to construct, things to build, expansions to bring forth so that others will be saved. The God of the waters will help.

GEMINI (May 22-June 20) Truly you are experiencing much duality; a confusing here and there-ness unless you don’t stand directly center. Why do this? So you can see both sides, so you don’t choose yet (observe instead), so you can understand how to create triangle of synthesis. There are two paths outlined for you, yes? Choice and knowledge of which path is revealed through revelation (through symbols). Ponder upon, draw and visualize these – the seven pointed, six pointed, five pointed stars, a triangle and the Cross. More next week.

CANCER (June 21-July 20) A duality is being presented to you in terms of your religious or spiritual practices. Perhaps there’s a fusion occurring between what you were taught and what you know or seek now. Are money concerns of concern? Past practices must give way to new banking practices. Is your communication sharp, harsh, possibly critical? Careful. You may not realize your tone of impatience. The homeopath Aconite neutralizes impatience (an excess of electrical energy). Stay out of rainstorms.

LEO (July 21-Aug. 22) Tend carefully to finances; ask for assistance if puzzled, embrace the future by banking locally and investing money in tangibles and goods that will sustain you for two years. Plan on others joining you. Remember the animals and their needs, too. Past memories may appear. It’s good to ask, “Did I love enough?” If not, there’s still time. A group offers two suggestions. Relationships fall sideways.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) There may be some ongoing self-criticism and your heartaches with these beliefs. It’s important to know these critical thoughts are not true. They’re simply old remnants from childhood. It’s good to turn toward words of praise creating a journal of true identity focusing upon self-praising while identifying gifts and abilities. This neutralizes mental and emotional illusions and distortions. Chiron, Neptune & Jupiter are attempting to purify all maya.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Something profound, transformative, different and new will occur to your home situation or perhaps it’s the foundations from which you live your life where the changes will occur. By autumn you’ll know what these are. In the meantime so much has shifted about with work and your professional life. Are you feeling somewhat out to sea? Are you doing what you love to do? Do you know what this is? Are you thinking about and able to travel? Tend with care and kindness to all relationships. They sustain, nourish and fortify you.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) As your home life tumbles and bobs about here and there (expansion then wounding then a sense of dissolving) you could feel a bit of despair along with exhilaration. Both are occurring along with a shift of friends (are you feeling somewhat alone?) and new information coming in about work and your professional life. Tend to money carefully. No excess expenditures on baubles. Things in matter are disappearing quickly. Do you have emergency supplies?

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 20) It’s time for something new in terms of relationships. It’s also time to travel somewhere you’ve been before to assess it with new eyes. Do be aware of how much work you’ve done, how hard and where you are today. In the next seven years your usual ways of thinking and interpreting will change into a profoundly new way of assessing the world. Your creativity alters too. Some of this is already occurring. As you hover forever at the razor’s edge, inch closer to the middle.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 21-Jan. 20)  Money. You stand between two themes. You have enough. You don’t have enough. In between is a wound. Perhaps you grew up with very little money or perhaps you grew up with enough to too much money. Either gave you a certain lens concerning money. But here we are today and all around us the monetary world as we’ve known it is collapsing. Don’t fret or be fearful. From the ashes emerge great opportunities. Ponder upon priorities considering the world situation. What must you do now? You’ll come to true answers.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 21-Feb. 18)There is and will be a breaking away from your usual ways of being. What’s normal will be upside down for a while. This gives you time to assess who you are, what you value about yourself and how you would like to change. Increased social interactions lead to increased social successes. You are accomplishing life’s tasks on your own, in your own timing and rules. This is good. Finally you had the freedom to step into your dreams. Remain there.

PISCES (Feb.19-March 20)Things feel very complex. And so you’re in a state of solitude and all your expectations are surfacing, providing information previously not known. Clearly you see that disappointments and sadnesses, those that lead to despair, are/were based upon unrealized hopes, dreams and wishes. These were not incorrect. Now you are aware of them. What will you do next? This question isn’t answerable yet. Keep observing and defining yourself.

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
