What’s the most scared you've ever been?

locot_jenniferWhen I was little my uncle used to go outside of our bedroom window when we were going to sleep and he would start to scratch on the window. We'd think that somebody was trying to get in. I literally connot remember being more scared, it was petrifying. And then after a while we realized it was him.

My son was a pound and a half when he was born, he was 27 weeks premature and we were quite sure he wasn't going to make it. The emergency
C-section and he's 6 and a half now.

When I crashed during a week-long beginner’s hang gliding class. I had a 45 pound kite strapped to my back and I was running as fast as I could down a hill, and a road approached faster than it was supposed to. I have a crushed ankle bone, but I survived.

We were driving along this road in Nepal in a very rickety bus, and we come to a place where we pass this big cliff and it was really scary because we saw about five or six of the same kind of bus we were in about 3,000 feet down at the bottom of the cliff smashed into a thousand pieces.

Leo Sun; Full Moon, Venus Retro in Leo; Saturn Direct

It’s a complex week of planetary movements, challenges, demands and callings. We’re in the time of the Leo Sun. Leo—fixed fire, gold, the heart, generous, strong, noble, the king/queen—needs appreciation and praise from everyone in order to move forward. During Leo we gain a greater sense of self-identification by recognizing our creativity. It’s therefore a perfect time for Venus retrograding in Leo. In Venus retrograde we review and re-assess values. Venus retro in Leo concerns our self as valuable, acknowledging talents, gifts, abilities and offerings. Friday, Venus re-enters Leo (29 degrees, a critical degree) continuing the retrograde to 14 degrees Leo on Sept. 6. Friday (Full Moon) is also the (8 degrees) Leo solar festival, Festival of the Future. Leo is the heart of the sun, the heart of all that matters. When attuned to this heart, we have understanding and inclusivity. The heart of the Lion is Mitra (think “Maitreya,” the coming World Teacher). Leo prepares humanity to receive divine love from subtle sources and later to radiate that love to the kingdoms. Sirius, Ray 2, where love originates, streams through Regulus (heart of Leo), into the heart of the sun (Ray 2) and into all hearts. The heart of Leo is Regulus. Joining Venus, the love underlying all of creation appears. Saturday is Sun/Neptune (confusion or devotion) with late night Saturn turning stationary direct. Ideas, plans and structures held long in abeyance (since March 14) slowly move forward. (Read more on Leo and the week at nightlightnews.org and Risa D’Angeles’ Facebook page, accessed through my website.)

Bargetto Winery

A much-anticipated annual event at Bargetto Winery is the release of their very special La Vita red wine. June 7 was the day to be heralded this year, and I happily squeezed my car into their overloaded car park in eager anticipation of tasting the new La Vita nectar.
