What are the most important issues to you in the upcoming local elections?

 

lt jamesWhat I'm concerned about right now is water. I don’t know how that’s going to be resolved as far as the election, but I was told we have to cut back on water. I'm really into my plants, so that’s my latest concern.

lt andreaI would say job wages. California is supposed to get a wage increase in July, but, from what they are saying, it's not going to be enough. Because of the cost of living, most of us have to have two jobs in order to survive. And so I'm thinking that San Jose is cheaper to live, and they are getting a higher rate paid for minimum wage.

lt athenaRespecting and honoring the water is really important to me, and finding more ways we can do that and incorporating that into the framework [in which] we’re living our lives would be amazing.

lt leandraGang violence. I'd like people to look into that more. It's not just an issue of people being bad, it’s an issue of economics. I think that it needs to be looked at more closely instead of just labeling people and categorizing people as bad.

We Hold These Truths to Be Self-Evident

Saturday, July 4, is the 239th birthday of the United States, commemorating the signing of the Declaration of Independence (the U.S. astrology chart has Aquarius moon—freedom for its people, by its people). Cancer, a liberating and initiating sign, is the “gate” where Spirit enters matter. Cancer receives and distributes Ray 3 (Divine Intelligence) and Ray 7 (new rules, new rhythms, new free nation under God). Cancer represents an intelligent freethinking humanity that can and must create right economics for the world. This means a policy of sharing, an opportunity for the U.S. when Venus (money, resources, possessions, etc.) retrogrades July and August in Leo (the heart of the matter). The United States has a unique spiritual task for the world: to lead humanity within and toward the light, accomplished by its people who must first awaken to this task, learn discrimination and be directed by the soul to assume the Herculean task of spiritual world leadership. Let us review the first words of our Constitution: “We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union, establish justice, ensure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this constitution for the United States of America.” Let us form that union together. The following is a review of the spiritual tasks for each sign. Read all the signs. They all apply to everyone.
