====================

Dear Parler Paris Reader,

A few weeks ago I spotted a lit poster on boulevard Beaumarchais that read:

“Paris dit NON à l’antisémitisme, au racisme, à toutes les discriminations!” signed, Mairie de Paris

Turns out, the posters are all over town and the city means what they say, down to the grass roots level. Following the celebration of Americanism sponsored by the Mairie of the 3rd arrondissement this past weekend as “Les Nuits Americaines,” it fascinated me to learn more about who’s at the helm of these bold events and ideas.

I see Mayor Pierre Aidenbaum (of the 3rd arrondissement) from time to time on rue de Bretagne, dining in Chez Omar, or officiating at local events. He seemed to be very much at the forefront of this very active community, especially on these issues — then I discovered that he is Jewish, born during World War II when his family fled to Au Puy to escape the Vichy government, and is the head of the International League Against Racism and Anti-semitism, a devoted socialist and radically left.

I set out to learn more and was graciously invited to meet with Mayor Aidenbaum and his press secretary, Cyril Egner. With the assistance of Pascal Fonquernie, long time resident of Le Marais and manager of several luxury short-term rental apartments (http://www.parismarais.com), we visited with them both in the Mayor’s grand office on the second floor of the Mairie de 3ème yesterday afternoon.

We sat around a large round table, spoke in French and posed many questions. Mayor Aidenbaum spoke openly and freely, particularly animatedly on the question of anti-semitism and the activities which have blackened France’s name, especially with the American Jewish community, from whom I hear regularly. He believes the media is guilty of not telling the full story and he confirmed our own feelings — the extremist aggressive behavior perpetrated mostly by youths from the suburbs are an extension of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. There is more anti-Israeli policy sentiment than anti-Jewish sentiment. There haven’t been any anti-semitic activities in the 3rd, and he doesn’t believe for a moment that the French are specifically anti-semitic — not any more than they are anti-anything, and their dislike of other religious or ethnic groups forms a hierarchy, one more profound than the other. He pointed out that Alain Menargues, head of news at the state-owned Radio France International, resigned from his post recently after he was accused of anti-Israeli bias from his own peers! (Promoting his new book “Sharon’s Wall” about the wall being built to separate Israel from Palestinian centers of population, Menargues more than once described Israel as racist, earning condemnation from the government as well as RFI journalists and Jewish groups.)

Aidenbaum’s not worried about the future of the Jewish community in France, or the tension we’re now experiencing between the U.S. and France — he has an optimistic outlook that there will be resolution thanks to this being a very multi-cultural society, evidenced by events organized and supported by the state such as Les Nuits Americaines, the annual Chinese New Year Parade and a host of others. The 3rd abounds with cultural centers, too: Swiss, Mexican, German, Swedish and many others — almost 30% of the “quartier” is Chinese and overall very “mixité” (like a melting pot). Pascal interjected that in his own building on rue Charlot, there are Germans, English, Americans, French, old and young, gay and straight, in newly redecorated apartments and 1948 rent-control apartments — very “mixité” indeed.

I’m certainly one of those foreigners living in the 3rd — and a full-fledged resident of Paris, now that I have my official plasticized carte de résident good for the next ten years. It’s a story worth telling — the trip my daughter and I made to the Préfecture yesterday morning with Jean Taquet at our side, doing everything we could to get them to bend the law to grant her full residency without having to renew her carte de séjour every year for five years! But I’ll leave it for another time…

In tomorrow’s French Property Insider, for those of you who subscribe, I’ll be writing more about what we learned from this very informative session with the Mayor of the 3rd related to property and housing. Getting to know the insider point of view is hooking me in even more than I already am! C’est la vie à Paris!

A la prochaine…

Verdi the Requiem concert

Le Choeur Européen de Paris joined by the Choeur Arioso led by Hugues Reiner will perform with the Orchestre Pasdeloup (a fine professional orchestra).

Known for his operas of course, Verdi wrote the Requiem in 1874 as a commemoration of the death of novelist and patriot Alessandro Manzoni. This is his only sacred work and its style is forthrightly operatic. According to a musician’s reference book: “The agnostic Verdi concerned himself not with the afterlife but with a humanistic and characteristically Italian memorial for the living” Once you have heard the well-known thunderous Dies Irae (Day of Anger), you will never forget it! Nor the rhythmically energetic ” Libera Me ” (Free Me, Lord) and much more.

Friday, October 22nd at 8:45 p.m.

Astro-Paris:
Aureas Adventure, and Eclipse Night
====================

By ERIC FRANCIS

Astro-Paris by Eric Francis

When I came to Paris, I arrived — quite miraculously — on Ile. St Louis. St Louis an ancient, tiny island, and it has a very nestled-in feeling. I soon began exploring its mysteries. One of the first I discovered was a rock shop at the head of Rue St Louis en l’ile. From the outside, it looks really good — until you go in and discover that it’s completely astonishing. It’s owned by Alain Carion, who is a specialist in meteorites. These are bits of space debris that actually manage to land on Earth. One of my passions in astrology is working with deep space objects, so I found a natural common interest with Alain, talking about the age of the solar system, the age of various planets and the asteroid belt, whether Mars rocks indicate that there was once life there, and lots besides. And apparently, unlike a lot of qualified scientists, he’s not prejudiced against astrologers. Alain is a Capricorn with Sagittarius rising (practical, but cosmic) and he has a Gemini Moon (highly diverse interests, communicative, good writer and likes people). He’s also really really good at picking out gems, and his shop has excellent items for as little as 5 euros or less and up to 1,200-plus for a huge meteor, or crystal matrix pieces, and so on. He has some excellent crystal balls. The shop is open from Tuesday to Saturday 10h30am – 1pm / 2pm – 7h30pm. If you want to meet Alain, go during the week. He speaks English, and his excellent pamphlet on meteors is available in both French and English.

As for the stars between now and next Wednesday, this is the week before a total lunar eclipse. It is a busy time, and an intense time. In the United States, desperate politicos are scrambling for power. The world is watching the developments leading toward the election, which happens two weeks from yesterday. The lunar eclipse occurs in the sign Taurus. It is the Taurus Full Moon. The exact event is at 5:07 am CED on the morning of Oct. 28. It will be visible from Paris low in the western horizon if there are clear skies. Before this happens, the Sun makes its annual ingress into the sign Scorpio on Saturday, Oct. 23.

Happy Birthday Scorpio!

You will find your way to the future through your most intimate relationships this year. I say this knowing that one-to-one contacts have been unusually challenging for you, particularly since the very unusual events of this past Spring, and even going back to your birthday two years ago. Yet if you look closely, you will see that these events have not been haphazard, and seemingly unrelated developments all fit together in some unusually sensible ways. My take on your charts is that by early December, you will have enough perspective to see the whole picture, and it will far exceed your expectations. For now, take some time and remember all you’ve been through, and thank yourself for your persistence and honesty.

Read lots more by Eric, or subscribe to his excellent weekly newsletter, at http://PlanetWaves.net/ Eric is also available for personal astrological consultations, classes and speaking engagements in Paris.
