Horoscope for the Week: Oct 17, 2014 http://ilovenelson.com/horoscope-for-the-week-oct-17-2014/ http://ilovenelson.com/horoscope-for-the-week-oct-17-2014/#respond Fri, 17 Oct 2014 06:59:32 +0000 http://ilovenelson.com/?p=187198 Sunstar Banner

Tip of the Week:

Before the Sun leaves Libra and enters Scorpio time some extra insight about Libra will serve to explain an important feature of Astrological practice. Libra is the archetypal principle of cultivating harmony, fairness, balance, mutual respect and love in any relationship. Beyond our more personal romantic, familial, sibling, relative, friend, neighbor and so on relationships, even business relationships could, in the ideal, foster all of the above.

Of course, cultivating a steady flow of such harmony requires ongoing effort and can well be deemed a true art. Invariably, due to the laws of change, this cultivation is a process and a diplomatic one at that. Any relationship therefore, between individuals as well as between larger entities like companies, institutions, cities, states, provinces and countries (each may deemed ‘persons’) implies a ‘political’ process.

Conflict is a common feature of relationships and of life. The level and magnitude of conflict varies from the minor to the extreme but no relationship is entirely free of it. What is ideal and important for harmonious and peaceful resolutions is increased objectivity.

There are two basic techniques used in Astrology to weigh and measure the quality of any relationship: Synastry and Composite. A Synastry Chart compares the ‘astrological chemistry’ between any two people. The principle of a ‘compound’ in chemistry lends a good example of this common approach. A Composite chart reveals the synthesis of the relationship. The principle of a ‘solution’ in chemistry supports a better understanding of this approach. There are also two types of Composite Chart, one that reveals the deeper purpose of the relationship and one that more fully illustrates the expression of that purpose.

In both Synastry and Composite charts, the reality of change can also be added to the perspective and it is measured as current ‘Transits’ (position of the planets in the sky in real time compared to the Birth Chart) affecting both each individual ‘persons’. The other is called Progressions’ which also represent flows of time representing change in both each individual person and the Composite charts they create together.

Altogether, these represent techniques that provide profound and valuable insights towards greater respective and mutual objectivity. With this increased level of insight and awareness beyond subjective biases and projections, mutual understanding and diplomatic resolution can be achieved. One may even gain awareness regarding the likely conflicts that will arise and may thereby decide not to enter into the relationship as a consequence.

In existing relationships, it ever remains important that both parties be committed to resolution which is itself an expression of sincerity and respect. The lack of such willingness reveals the otherwise concealed or unrealized lack of respect. Sincerity and integrity therefore are the basic foundations required for cultivating healthy relationships and Astrology can serve to activate these to higher than normal levels.

Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 20)

An important current cycle is your invitation and opportunity to integrate a whole new quality of relating and of creating relationship. Often we tend to ‘have’ relationships as opposed to the ideal of creating relationship. The result is the significant others in our life tend to feel ‘had’. When we create relationship we are present and respectful and a core feature of true success is the result. This is your cue.

 

Taurus (Apr 20 – May 21)

The act of creating balance in our life is the art of life. This refers to every aspect, arena and front. A golden key to this cultivation process is to recognize that the balance point is ever moving, ever changing… never static. So, every day is a new day and requires that we attune, adjust, and adapt with health and balance in mind. Now is the time.

Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)

A wave of creative inspiration is washing in. It holds the energy of individuality within it. Holding a vision of your own unique destiny to fulfill is implied. A variety of art expressions is likely. Creating optimal health is also ideal especially now. The biggest issue is scattering your focus. Engaging with and sharing the journey with others will prove inspiring and empowering.

Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Shifts and changes in your world continue to roll in. As is often the case, the old must make way for the new. Focusing upon long-term investments and/or relationship involvements is a core theme. Creating or inviting beauty in your home somehow is a source of inspiration. One way or another, this is a call to color your world.

 

Leo (Jul 22 – Aug 23)

Your world is changing and expanding. Meeting new people and making friends and other social connections is a new norm. Doing so will prove inspiring now and will bring opportunities in years to come. At deeper levels you are destined to overcome some core fears. To decipher what these are, outline your goals, plans and/or dreams and they will be brought into the light of day.

 

Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

A process of building upon new foundations continues. This is a necessary stage for future developments. This is a call to access and make use of some of your hidden resources. Deciphering what these are may require a bit of extra time and energy but will prove worthwhile. Take inventory of your gifts, skills and assets.

 

Libra (Sep 22 – Oct 22)

A pioneering cycle continues. In addition to exploring new people and places, you are also destined to explore yourself anew. A process of re-discovery and possibly of re-invention is implied. New jobs, relationships, lifestyle rhythms and modes of creative self-expression are all possible features. Reach within and without.

 

Scorpio (Oct 22 – Nov 21)

Merging your talents and resources with those of others is a central theme these days. During this cycle of expansion in your public and professional life, this focus is extra important. Call it creating communion or inviting imagination…, either way a weave and synthesis of collective talents is a key to your success at this time.

 

Sagittarius (Nov 21 – Dec 21)

Reaching out to participate in the world with purpose and passion is a steadily emerging theme. In the short term, your main task may simply be to get comfortable with the prospects. Generating ideas and tapping your deeper destiny is also ideal. This new cycle will especially get underway in 2015. For now, focus on seeding dreams.

 

Capricorn (Dec 21 – Jan 19) 

Your public and professional world is on a roll. Success has required that you step out of your comfort zone. With your ambitions on a steady rise, simply relaxing would prove ironically stressful. Reaching out to be seen and heard is important. The window of opportunity is now open. Hopefully you have acted upon it. If you have not yet, do it now!

 

Aquarius (Jan 19 – Feb 19)

A social, cultural and artistic cycle continues to spiral upward. This is leading you to meet new people and make new friends. Professional affiliations are woven in this mix. In fact, this will become your next major focus over the coming weeks. Especially if you have been diligent, practically wise and sincere, your efforts will be well rewarded soon.

 

Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

A process of clearing the old to make way for the new continues. Yet it may also be that in making new associations old involvements are steadily fading away. Either way, change is in the air. This will lead you to new levels of power and responsibility. Creating a healthy lifestyle rhythm and practice is important to your success now and later.

Tip of the Week:

Libra is a much more important and interesting sign than may at first be realized. It holds the distinction of being placed on the 7th House Cusp, what is also regarded as the Descendant. This is the Sign of relationships or the natural and invariable reality of relating with others, people, life.

I like to on occasion remind people that the scales that are used to symbolize Libra are the only ‘object’ in the Zodiac. We have 1 set of twins, one virgin (but who isn’t really), one water bearer symbolic of Aquarius, (but which is an air sign), a centaur who is half man and half horse or beast if you like, a ram, a bull, a crab, lion, scorpion, goat and 2 fish, who are not necessarily swimming in opposite directions but can be understood to be swimming in a circle together. Each of the 12 Zodiac totems or symbols are rich and complex and possess many levels of meaning, as is the case with any actual symbol.

One of the principle features of the scales is their incredible sensitivity to even the slightest touch or influence. Another key feature is like the ever moving tides and waxing and waning Moon, the scales and more importantly, the principle of balance, is always in a state of motion and thus of change. This is a hint to the fact that the balance point is ever moving.

The balance point is in motion because everything in existence too is in a process of motion as well, and this is true from the cosmic to the quantum field. The main point is that for each of us to maintain balance and equilibrium we too must continually ‘move on’. It has been said many times and it is very apparent, change is a fundamental feature of reality. It certainly is not always fun or easy. But, it would be worse if there was no change, at least in this dimension. This change is most evidently linked to our relationships and not only our personal ones but those at a social, national and political level. The key is to cooperate with the flow of change and perpetuate a state of balance. This is a hint at the deeper meaning and purpose of Libra.

Although the ‘primary relationship’ in life is always with our ‘selves’ our body, mind, heart and soul, life is also largely about our relationships with others. Astrology provides profound insight which is deeply affirming to our core sense of authenticity. Sounding these depths is the best first step to take with Astrology. Doing so can prove deeply healing in that it allows us to be more objective about our core nature, character traits and destiny. Then from there one can begin to more fully enter into future turning points and destined changes. Unfortunately, people all too often stop there as though that is all that Astrology has to offer. In this regard they basically miss out and indirectly assume just how deep and far Astrology can go.

Cultivating a healthy relationship with our selves is actually a lifetime process and if we take the opportunity to look at our ‘life map’ from time to time, then we can really remain on track and therefore healthier, especially at the deeper levels, and thereby achieve a more genuine state of success, the kind that you can actually take with you when you finally leave after completing this round.

 www.sunstarastrology.com (250) 352-6871 sunstarastrology@gmail.com 

Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 20)

With each new day the importance of creating ever greater harmony in your most significant relationships becomes crystal clear. Sometimes it is the lack of the above that communicates loudest. You may soon realize that saying what others want to hear may work for a while but does not satisfy. Speak from the heart and support your partner(s) to do the same.

 

Taurus (Apr 20 – May 21)

It is said Prince Siddhartha, who achieved Buddha consciousness, had six planets in Taurus – a stellium. His main teachings since have emerged as the wisdom and virtues of following the ‘middle path’. He was basically referring to moderation and balance in all things. This represents an important theme for you with extra special emphasis now.

Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)

For many people the very existence of beauty is proof of a higher power behind existence that is good and loving. Creative self-expression that produces is a joy to do, experience and behold. You have entered a window of opportunity to engage your own artistic talents and inspirations in this creative process. If you have not already, begin it now.

Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Creating beauty close to home is a source of joy now. It may be that circumstances are doing it for you. However, you will have to do your part. Key investments are implied. These could come in the way of new furniture and may be the consequence of renovations and/or home improvement projects. However it is happening a fresh spark has been ignited in your hearth.

 

Leo (Jul 22 – Aug 23)

Jupiter in your sign indicates that you are in an expansive cycle. It will continue through to July 2015. In the short-term you have entered a very social cycle. This will continue all month. It includes a playful and sporting mood. Given Jupiter has a way of expanding things, balance social activity with exercise so it does not all go to your waistline.

 

Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22)

The process of building upon new foundations continues. A diplomatic approach and process is likely and ideal. Taking a stance where you are firm in your resolve yet flexible in approach is ever wise. Whatever is happening, owning you power means assuming full responsibility for your part in any and all involvements. Look to the future and focus to build as opposed to burn bridges.

 

Libra (Sep 22 – Oct 22)

One way or another you find yourself in new territory. Making sincere efforts to produce an atmosphere of harmony feels important. With your energy levels running high this is a good time to catch-up on things. It is important that you be the one to take the initiative. Forging new friendships and other collaborations will prove popular and successful over time.

 

Scorpio (Oct 22 – Nov 21)

A busy time behind the scenes continues. You are determined to be productive and to establish promising new momentums. You are in an ambitious mood yet do not want to spend more energy or money than you have to. Initiating clear and honest communications is the key. Unraveling misunderstandings and sending a new and more effective message is featured.

 

Sagittarius (Nov 21 – Dec 21)

The light of a new day has begun to illuminate your world. There is a silver thread of new beginnings woven into it. Yet there may be a lingering fog in the air producing some measure of uncertainty. Have faith that it will burn off and proceed with confidence that there is a blue sky above. The pace is poised to accelerate so get ready to engage.

 

Capricorn (Dec 21 – Jan 19) 

A whole new level of responsibility is set to begin. Your public and professional life will be affected. Relationships close to home will also be directly influenced. This is a time of returns, one way or another. Positively, you will feel rewarded for past efforts. This is especially true now but will linger for about the next six months.

 

Aquarius (Jan 19 – Feb 19)

Your world continues to steadily change, grow and expand. This momentum began in the earlier part of the summer. Yet, you can probably trace influences to this time last year. It probably has and continues to have its trying moments. Yet overall you feel stronger and more confident. Acknowledge this progress to instill more confidence and strength; you will need it.

 

Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Making sincere efforts to improve on all fronts is now in focus. You want to be healthier and experience more successful professional experiences and relationships. Altogether you want greater returns for the efforts you are making. To succeed, it is important that you focus to make a few changes and increase the overall quality of your approach.

NELSON CIVIC THEATRE SOCIETY (NCTS) ANNOUNCES ELEANOR STACEY AS EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR http://ilovenelson.com/nelson-civic-theatre-society-ncts-announces-eleanor-stacey-as-executive-director/ http://ilovenelson.com/nelson-civic-theatre-society-ncts-announces-eleanor-stacey-as-executive-director/#respond Thu, 16 Oct 2014 23:25:01 +0000 http://ilovenelson.com/?p=187183 unnamedNelson, October 10, 2014 | The Nelson Civic Theatre Society (NCTS) announces the appointment of Eleanor Stacey as Executive Director.  Ms. Stacey brings more than 15 years of professional experience as a fundraiser, program developer, arts administrator, and consultant in the non-profit cultural sector.

Ms. Stacey joins the Civic Theatre in October 2014, and be responsible for guiding the organization into its next phase of development and operations.

NCTS Board President Marilyn Mint: “We are very pleased that Eleanor is joining our team.  We are indeed fortunate to have found someone with her experience and capabilities.  Eleanor is ideally suited to lead us towards our goal of converting the Civic into a state-of-the-art multi-screen, multi-purpose community facility.”

Ms. Stacey is originally from Nelson.  Growing up here, she was very familiar with the Capitol Theatre, where her mother, Margaret Stacey, was the General Manager for 18 years.  During that time, she gained experience as a volunteer, designer and director.  Inspired by the template used by the Capitol for its annual summer shows, Ms. Stacey founded the Apple Summer Youth Theatre Program in Anguilla, British West Indies, which she administered from 1998-2003, and again in Summer 2008.

Ms. Stacey holds a BA from Mount Allison University (New Brunswick) and an MFA in Performing Arts Administration from Brooklyn College (City University of New York). As a student, she gained professional experience with Landestheater Tuebingen (Germany), New York City Opera, and The Roundabout Theatre.

In New York City, Ms. Stacey has held the positions of Development Associate at Theatre Communications Group—North America’s largest professional theatre association and the producer of American Theatre Magazine—and Director of Development at Classic Stage Company. In 2005, she returned to BC and joined The Cultch as Director of Development, managing a multi-faceted fundraising program, an array of special events, and the selection process for the Rio Tinto Alcan Performing Arts Award.

Most recently, Ms. Stacey was the Executive Director of the Greater Vancouver Professional Theatre Alliance (GVPTA), where she expanded professional development programming for theatre makers, deepened membership value, and established Western Canada’s only Unified General Audition process for theatre companies and actors.

Ms. Stacey returned to Nelson over a year ago, hoping that she might see professional opportunities to stay and raise her young family here.  Upon accepting the position, Ms. Stacey stated: “It is a tremendous pleasure to join the Civic Theatre at this pivotal moment in its development as a cultural entity and community service.  I look forward to working with the board, staff, membership, and greater local community to continue to grow and shape this unique organization.”

TOUR OF AFFORDABLE SENIOR’S HOUSING OPTIONS IN NELSON http://ilovenelson.com/tour-of-affordable-seniors-housing-options-in-nelson/ http://ilovenelson.com/tour-of-affordable-seniors-housing-options-in-nelson/#respond Mon, 06 Oct 2014 23:12:25 +0000 http://ilovenelson.com/?p=183836 NCOH HAW Bus Tour Poster

 It’s full now! We topped 36 people! Thanks for your support!

As part of our 2014 Homelessness Action Week (HAW), October 12 to 18th, the Nelson Committee on Homelessness (NCOH) is excited to invite you on a bus tour of Nelson’s affordable housing options for seniors on Tuesday, October 14 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.

 

The tour hopes to introduce riders to the range of housing choices seniors have now, the challenges facing low-income seniors, and the work both community groups and the private and public sector are undertaking to address the coming baby-boomer tsunami of demand for affordable seniors housing.

 

This year NCOH is focusing on seniors-at-risk and homeless.   There are over 2200 people over 60 years of age in Nelson alone, and some struggle to try and maintain their health and their housing, some in isolation.  This puts them at risk.  Without adequate support services, seniors can end up in hospital or be moved into assisted living or residential care before they otherwise would need or want to.  Other seniors are looking to downsize to relieve themselves from the upkeep of a single family dwelling and grounds.  Still others are hoping to save money by down-sizing as they move from employment to pension incomes.  Many will face a rude awakening.

 

Advertised One-Bedrooms in 2013 went for over $770, yet to only pay 30% of one’s income for housing would require an annual income of $30, 800.  Most seniors’ pensions come nowhere close to this.  Those on basic OAS and GIS have to get by on about $13,400 per year.  Rent supplements for seniors haven’t been increased in years and are problematic, given higher rental rates.

 

As baby boomers age, demand for supports to keep them at home and for affordable, appropriate housing will increase dramatically.

 

NCOH invites you to BE ON THE BUS, NOT OFF for affordable seniors housing. Find out the facts on seniors housing options.  Meet housing and care providers who can answer your

questions.  Meet seniors who can tell you what affordable housing has meant to them.  Find out what demands there are for this housing and supports… and what the future may hold.

 

A draft itinerary is attached.  (This may change slightly on the day.)  We urge you to take some time and come on the ride!  Refreshments and lunch will be available (lunch by donation where you can).
