EarthSky News: What is retrograde motion?
Sometimes as seen in Earth’s sky the planets seem to move backwards. Astronomers (and astrologers) call that reversal retrograde motion.
Typically, planets shift slightly eastward from night to night. From time to time, they seem from our viewpoint on Earth to change direction, and for a few months they’ll seemly head west before turning back around. Though it baffled ancient stargazers, we know now that retrograde motion is an illusion

Inner Journey: Labels limit us
“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.”
— Lao Tzu
How do you define yourself, to yourself and others? Are you first and foremost a husband/wife? A mother/father? A bus driver, dentist, musician … ? A Christian, Muslim, Jew …? A nag, joker, dreamer …?
Be aware that any label puts limits on you. Today, experience how it feels to let go of the labels to rest in ‘I am.’ Feel the freedom, the spaciousness, the infinite potential of simply being.
“With every breath, the possibility of a new aspect of self arises.”
— Wayne Muller
“As long as I am this or that, I am not all things.”
— Meister Eckhart

Today’s Recipe: Ricotta Pineapple Upside-Down Cake
A combo of sweet, fresh pineapple paired with a tangy ricotta cake makes for a deliciously decadent flavor combo. Don’t use skim ricotta for this—it’s too watery, and won’t provide the flavor that makes this cake so good.

“Life does not consist mainly, or even largely, of facts and happenings. It consists mainly of the storm of thoughts that are forever blowing through one’s mind.”
Isn’t it amazing how we can each see the same thing in an entirely different way? It’s because of our perceptions. Our past experiences help us to formulate some kind of definition to our current experiences. Yet we can change the way we look at things. We can choose a different perspective, see things from someone else’s point of view, or from a higher vantage point. And when we broaden our scope and look at the “big picture” then we can see more clearly what is real.
