Astrologically speaking, our celebrity celestial diviners, such as Susan Miller, have predicted a month of emotional upheaval and revealed secrets. This April is going to see both a solar and a lunar eclipse, which supposedly means that difficult truths will be revealed and old emotional attachments will be purged. Irrespective of your astrological beliefs, the GCI will see to it that at least some of us face some difficult truths. Indeed, I take it as a tenuous blessing for our upcoming Green Week.
Green Week is a time of festivity, celebrations, picnics, and live bands on Jammie Plaza. But it is also a time of remembering the importance of these events. Certainly, their purpose is fun. But that is only one side of the coin. The other side is awareness – our aim is to remind the people of UCT that the world needs to change. With growing interest in matters of environment, ecology, and sustainability, we also take it as an opportunity to celebrate the involvement of good-hearted people in this cause that directly affects all of us. All the logistics can be found on the Facebook page, and a nice summary of the essence of our year’s main event can be found here.
