Happy Ash Wednesday.
I read in the paper today that the Moon recently entered Pisces. And just by looking at what is ahead for weekend activities, that makes a lot of sense to me.
As the zodiac sign Pisces is associated with all things creative, spiritual, healing and phychic… so it is safe to say that this weekend is heavily influenced by the earth’s gravitational pull.
Not falling short of things to do, the Coachella Valley is offering activities such as art gallery opening recepetions, classic car shows, wildflower festivals, Greek food festivals, and much more. Bike rides, hikes, and music shows are all in favor this weekend as well.
Sounds fun? It is.
Make sure to see what the valley has to offer this week in terms of community organizations and make sure to revisit the blog here within the next couple of days to see what teh smaller organizatiosn are up to around the valley. More art, theater and music will be highlighted.
Safe to say this week in the 760 is a art scene blogger’s heaven… jam packed.
