What’s the best thing that happened in Santa Cruz County this year? And the worst?

Definitely the worst thing that has happened over the last year in Santa Cruz has been the rise in gang violence. The best thing would have to be the increase in community activities and involvement.

The best things that happened this year in Santa Cruz were that Jozseph Shultz re-opened India Joze and my daughter

Alex became an adult. The worst were the Vets hall closed down, and my daughter Isabella will be a teenager in January.

Worst thing to happen in Santa Cruz this year would be the senseless murders of Tyler Tenorio and Carl Reimer earlier this year. The best thing to happen in Santa Cruz this year was the collective efforts of our community to combat gang violence and street crime through groups like Take Back Santa Cruz.

I think the worst thing to happen in Santa Cruz was the misguided May Day riot. It harmed local business, made a mess and did more harm than whatever good was supposed to come from the message. The best thing? I'm really glad that India Joze is back!

Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius

The magical time of Mercury’s retrograde cycle is here once again, until Feb. 11, and then some. The Mercury retro cycle actually lasts eight weeks when we consider its retrograde shadow, giving us six months a year for review. We know the rules of Mercury retro: Be careful with everything; cars, driving, money, resources, friends, friendships, groups, interactions, thinking, talking, communications. Avoid big purchases, important meetings and important repairs. Mercury retrograde times are for review, reassessment and rest. Our minds are overloaded from the last Mercury retro. Our minds need to assess what we’ve done since October—eliminating what is not needed, keeping what’s important, preparing for new information in the next three months (till mid-May). Mercury in Aquarius retrograde … we reinvent ourselves, seek the unusual, we don’t hide, we’re just careful. We live in two worlds; outer appearances and inner reckonings, with both sides of our brain activated. Yet, like the light of the Gemini twins, one light waxes (inner world), the other (outer realities) wanes. Like Virgo, we see what’s been overlooked—assessing, ordering and organizing information. It’s an entirely inner process. When speaking we may utter only half of the sentence. We’re in the underworld, closer to Spirit, eyes unseeing, senses alerted, re-doing things over and over till we sometimes collapse. Because we’re in other realms, we’re wobbly, make mistakes, and don’t really know what we want. It’s not a time for decisions. Not yet. It’s a time of review. And completing things. Mercury retro: integration, slowing down, resolution, rapprochement.
