EarthSky News: Meet the Chamaeleon, a southern constellation
The constellation of the Chamaeleon lies deep in the Southern Hemisphere sky. You have to be south of the equator to spot it. As a south circumpolar constellation, it circles closely around the south celestial pole and, therefore, does not set. Thus, if you’re in the Southern Hemisphere, you can see it on any evening of the year.
Patheos-Pagan: The Two of Swords – Choose Wisely
APRIL 19, 2022 BY JOHN BECKETT
Last week I did a series of Tarot readings, looking for clarity on several issues of some importance to me. The Two of Swords came up in every reading except one, and in that one the Seven of Cups was the first card I drew.

FOLLOW THROUGH ON YOUR COMMITMENTS
“Our high resolves look down on our slumbering acts.”
— L.E. Landon
How do you put things off, make excuses, or let anyone or anything get in the way of your commitments?
What are you saying to yourself and your subconscious mind (which records all of your patterns) when you do not complete what is important to you?
Pick a task or new habit to which you will re-commit. Show yourself and your inner programming that you CAN complete and that you are serious about what you say.
“Nothing is so fatiguing as the eternal hanging on of an uncompleted task.”
— William James
“Procrastination is the thief of time.”
— Edward Young

The best way to find “love”, which, incidentally, is just as true for finding money, is to focus less on these by-products of a life well lived and more on a life well lived.
Simple is as simple does,

“The man [or woman!] who does not work for the love of work but only for money is not likely to make money nor to find much fun in life.”
-Charles M. Schwab
That’s quite some advice from one of the top businessmen in American history! Yet how many of us really take this to heart? I’ve heard so many times from people who say that they are working just for the money and that what they REALLY want to do is something else entirely. This isn’t productive. So our choice is to either find a way to love the work that we are at least temporarily required to do, OR find a way to make money doing what it is that we love to do. Both of these are valid options. Work can be a ministry. No matter where you are or what you’re doing, there are people you can reach, people you can help. And we also know that when you truly love what you are doing, nothing can stop you from doing it!
