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?

LT jessicaI hope she knows how to rain dance.

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. :)

Two Fish Bound by a Golden Cord

Until March 20, (Spring Equinox), Earth and her kingdoms (mineral, plant, animal, human) experience the influence of Pisces, sign of the World Savior. Whereas the task of Aquarius is as world server, the Pisces task is saving the world—tasks given to the two fishes. Pisces never really enters matter, and as the last sign of the zodiac includes all the signs. During Pisces, having gathered all the gifts of the previous 11 signs, it is a good time to prepare for new initiating plans when Aries (sign of beginnings) begins. No wonder Pisces, like Scorpio, is so difficult (both are ruled by Pluto, planet of death, new life, regeneration, transformations). Both signs (with Scorpio drowning in dark and deep waters) find life on Earth a hardship, disorienting (from the spiritual perspective), at times feeling betrayed. Life is a paradox, especially for Pisces. Each zodiacal sign represents and distributes a different phase and facet (12) of the Soul’s diamond light, Pisces is the “Light of Life itself, ending forever the darkness of matter.” It takes two fish to complete this work (creating eventually an extraordinary human being). One fish turned toward the material world (in order to understand matter), the other fish toward the heavenly world. Around the two fish is a silvery cord binding them together. The two fish are forever bound until all of humanity is redeemed (lifted up into the Light). This is the dedication of all world saviors (Buddha, Christ, the NGWS). Thus the sacrifice and suffering experienced by Pisces. Knowing these things about Pisces, let us help them all we can. Sometimes all of humanity is Pisces.
