MNN: 36 random animal facts that may surprise you

Earth is home to more than 1 million known animal species, each one representing an ancient tome of biological trivia. Much of this random knowledge gets lost in the ether, leaving us to speculate about things like dinosaur divorce rates or amphibian dance moves. But we still catch an awful lot, providing us with plenty of interesting — if not always actionable — facts about our fellow fauna.

Depending on where you live worldwide, the planets Mercury and Venus will pair up most closely for the year on May 21 or 22, 2020. These two words will pass within one degree of one another on the sky’s dome. Incidentally, one degree is approximately the width of your little finger at an arm length from your eye.

Inner Journey:

Open to the new

“The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.”
— Alvin Toffler

How willing are you to learn something new? How open are you to new perspectives?

When we are open, we are willing to move to places we’ve never been before. We are willing to continually review our belief systems so we can test out new ideas.

Be open to seeing things:
– from another’s point of view,
– from a higher and more inclusive perspective
– with a beginner’s attitude of wonder.
“I am always in quest of being open to what the universe will bring me.”
— Jill Bolte Taylor

A Note from the Universe

When you think a new thought, entertain a new dream, or mentally choose a new goal, your thoughts “leave” you and go out — in every direction — to the farthest corners of the planet. They carry a life force all their own, like ripples created when a pebble is tossed into a pond.

You can’t change this,  but you can totally use the heck out of it.

Think good thoughts,

The Universe

Daily Wisdom
May 21, 2020 
“Few people think more than two or three times a year; I have made an international reputation for myself by thinking once or twice a week.”

-George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950)

Shaw was a prolific writer, and so funny! He shows us how to laugh at ourselves. It is truly amazing what we can do when we put our minds to it. Whether it is writing plays like Shaw, or theory like Einstein, or music like Mozart – there are examples of brilliant ways to use our minds to create, and to change the world.

-Lissa Coffey


Daily Tarot: The Star

Despite any confusion of the day, you’ll be the calm and serene center of any activities. Your calmness will be contagious, too, so look forward to being surrounded by people who want to cooperate with you and be helpful before being directly asked. Take your calm state of mind into the evening, rest well, and see how much you can take with you into tomorrow.
