When it comes to relationships, what is super attractive? What is a deal breaker?

When it comes to relationships, what is super attractive?  What is a deal breaker?What’s super attractive to me is confidence and an independent life. The deal breaker would be using the relationship as a distraction from your own life.

What are your thoughts on Occupy Wall Street?

What are your thoughts on Occupy Wall Street?

I think it's wonderful what all the people are doing in all the cities around the country right now in reference to the Wall Street crash and all the problems. And I also think they should take that and take it to the banks and the mortgage companies. I think it's wonderful and I'd like to see more of it.

What will it take to get our representatives to favor the needs of the citizens before the interests of big business?

What will it take to get our  representatives to favor the needs of the citizens before the interests of big business? I think it will take a lot of compassion and an uprising on the citizens part to address that to our leaders. I don’t think we’re involved enough. We don’t care enough to actually take action.

Life-aboard in the harbor. The tsunami and the recovery have been a big issue for a lot of people down there. I think it would be a fun one.

They say the recession is over. Is it?

They say the recession is over. Is it?
I've definitely seen a pick up in spending in the store and I think people are less careful with their disposable income, and there seems to be a general feeling of optimism. We're up in our sales.

Libra's Two Choices

Libra (our last week) is the sign of creating right relations and values. In Libra we are asked to choose how to be, our identity in the world. We can maintain a hermetic sealed-off attitude (my life, my work, my money, etc.) or we can gain knowledge of world events and learn more about those in need. Libra is a group sign—self with others. Here are some events occurring in our world this week concerning food, poverty, spirituality, values and global realities. The UN (a spiritual experiment) each month places a “light” upon world problems. This week a light shines on Rural Women, Farms, Food & Poverty. Before we choose to respond we must have knowledge. “So we can each do our part.” Oct. 15 - International Day of Rural Women (unrecognized with few resources); Oct. 16 - World Food Day & Family Farming: Feeding the World, Caring for the Earth; Oct. 17 - Eradication of Poverty Day (international). During the month of Libra (with Saturn exalted), we pause, contemplate and assess what it is we know, don’t know, and need to know. Libra receives and distributes Ray 3 of divine intelligence, right relations, right choice and right economy (Venus). Use your intelligence “tips the Libran scales” in terms of being able to see and then choose between the two paths Libra offers (return to the past or step forward into Scorpio’s Discipleship). Libra (the oscillating light) prepares us for the great tests and conflicts in Scorpio. In Libra we are subtly tested as we learn the nature of polarized energies (s/he loves me, s/he loves me not). In Libra we learn more about ourselves through others. Libra’s Ray 3 asks us to become more adaptable and skillful. And then we are to teach each other what we know. In Libra, we all become teachers. In all these ways love is cultivated.
