What is your advice, or hope, for the new City of Santa Cruz Water Director Rosemary Menard?

LT allisonI hope that she, when thinking about it, thinks long term.

LT jeniferMy hope is that we can find a way to make sure that clean water is available for everyone, and I would consider a tertiary  water treatment to recycle the water that we use.

LT jenniferPGet people to stop watering their lawns. Don’t flush your toilet when you just pee in it. Be more conscious of how long you take a shower. Reuse your pasta water.

LT hankMaybe we should have two systems of water so we don’t use our drinking water to flush our toilets. And how can we totally recycle our water? How can we reuse it again? Can we do it in a permaculture environment where we bioremediate it? How can we effectively bioremediate our water and reuse it?

Best of luck, Rosemary!

I hope that under your leadership we can create more awareness in the community on wasteful water habits around the home. From what I've seen, sharing ideas on how to conserve waters really shows people that conserving water really isn't much of a hard effort. :)

Aquarius Calling, Humanity Rising

Aquarius (11th sign after Aries) is the sign of service—serving one another, building community. Aquarius is fixed air, stabilizing new ideas in the world. When new ideas reach the masses the ideas become ideals within the hearts and minds of humanity. Air signs (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius) are mental. They think, ponder, study, research, gather and distribute information. For air signs, education and learning, communicating, writing, being social, tending to money, participating in groups and creating sustainable communities are most important. One of the present messages Aquarius is putting forth to the New Group of World Servers is the creation of the New Education (thus thinking) for humanity—one based not on commodities (banking/corporate values) but on virtues. Humanity and Aquarius Aquarius is the sign of humanity itself. We are now at the beginnings of the Age of Aquarius, the Age of Humanity (rising). The “rising” is the Aquarian vision of equality, unity, the distribution and sharing of all resources and of individual (Leo) creative gifts for the purpose of humanity’s (Aquarius) uplifting. This is the message in the Solar Festival of Aquarius (at the full moon) on Tuesday, Feb. 3. We join in these visions by reciting the World Prayer of Direction, the Great Invocation.Tuesday’s solar festival follows Monday’s Groundhog Day, or Imbolc (ancient Celtic fire festival) the halfway mark between winter solstice and spring Equinox). The New Group of World Servers (NGWS) during these two days are preparing for the upcoming Three Spring Solar Festivals: 1. Aries Resurrection/Easter Festival (April); 2. Taurus Buddha/Wesak Festival (May); and 3. Gemini’s Festival of Humanity (June). Aquarius and the new and full moons together are the primary astrological influences behind all of humanity’s endeavors. The NGWS are to teach these things, calling and uplifting humanity. Join us everyone. (301)
