EarthSky News: Moon and Gemini February 23, 2021

On the evenings of February 23, 2021, the waxing gibbous moon is bright enough to erase many stars from the blackboard of night. But you’ll likely still see the two bright Gemini “twins” – the stars Castor and Pollux – in the moon’s glare. Another bright star is nearby; it’s Procyon, brightest star in the constellation Canis Minor the Lesser Dog, also known as the Little Dog Star.

Inner Journey: FOCUS ON WHAT YOU WANT

“A good intention clothes itself with power.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson

Our minds are incredibly powerful. We put that power to work for us when we consciously set an intention to be or do something. Get into the habit of consciously setting an intention for activities throughout your day.

Your intention might support efficiency – for example, to complete a job or project by a specific time. Your intention might support your personal growth, e.g., to undertake a task that scares you. Or it might support more soul connection, e.g., to be grateful for gifts we take for granted.

When we take the time to set an intention, no matter how trivial, we are consciously choosing what we want for ourselves. With consistent attention, your intentions will come to life!

“By becoming a conscious choice-maker, you begin to generate actions that are evolutionary for you.”
— Deepak Chopra

Daily Wisdom

Failure
“People fail forward to success.”

-Mary Kay Ash, 1984


It’s a matter of attitude. Some baseball players say that after they strike out they feel relieved, because it just means that the odds are better for them the next time they go up to bat. The important thing is that they do get back up there and have another go at it. Failure doesn’t have to be an obstacle, it can be a stepping stone.

Daily Tarot: The Magician

It may be hard to be serious and stick to those dull but crucial tasks that keep the day running smoothly. Be systematic, cheerful, and don’t let it show if you feel undervalued or underappreciated. Save your sharp wit and cleverness for another time and place. Time spent with younger people or children can lift your spirits and keep things in perspective for you
