5 Thought-Provoking Quotes to Ponder Before the Week Commences - David Domzalski. So, I’m reading John Maxwell’s The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth right now. I basically just started today with Chapter 1 and I wanted to share a few thoughts about it thus far. A few quotes Maxwell uses throughout this first chapter titled “The Law of Intentionality” really resonated with me. The first is from “The Boss” – Bruce Springsteen. “A time will come when you need to stop waiting for the man you want to become and start being the man you want to be.” The second quote Maxwell shares is called the Law of Diminishing Intent, which states: “The longer you wait to do something you should do now, the greater the odds that you will never actually do it.” Robert H. “What would you attempt to do if you knew you wouldn’t fail?” The fourth quote comes from author and professor Warren Bennis: “A mistake is simply another way of doing things.” Finally, the fifth quote I want to share with you comes from the legendary Jim Rohn: How do you feel after reading these quotes?

Read your rising-sign horoscope instead. - Do you read your weekly or monthly horoscope? If you do, I want to explain why you should consider reading the forecast for your rising sign in addition to (or perhaps even in place of ?!) your sun sign. You don’t need to change the horoscope you read, say, Rob Brezny’s Free Will Astrology, Astro Barry, or Susan Miller’s monthly forecast. I know, I know! I will try to explain how sun-sign columns are written in as un-jargony terms as possible. The horoscope is broken down into four important pieces. 1) signs 2) planets 3) houses 4) planetary aspects the examples given below are crude examples to illustrate pieces of a horoscope and are not complete interpretations. SIGNS, like Aries, Taurus, Libra, etc. Signs describe a style. PLANETS, like the Moon, Mars, and Jupiter. Planets describe the parts of who we are: The Moon: our needs, Mars: how we act, Venus: what we enjoy, Saturn: what we fear. HOUSES, when you look at a horoscope, are the things that look like pieces of pizza.

Neptune in Third House by Aleister Crowley A great many of the remarks which were made about the first house are applicable to the third, but in a somewhat secondary sense. The tendencies which we have noted there are deep-seated and pertain rather to the ego itself than to any of its embellishments, but the third house dealing with the mentality must be considered as indicating the development of the mind through education and environment. This distinction is not so subtle as it seems. These qualities will naturally react, perhaps in a very marked manner on the social relations.

Earth Wrapped In 'Star Trek Force Field', Scientists Discover The Earth is encased in an invisible force field that scientists have compared with the "shields" featured in iconic TV show Star Trek. An American team discovered the barrier, some 7,200 miles above the Earth's surface, that blocks high energy electrons threatening astronauts and satellites. Scientists identified an "extremely sharp" boundary within the Van Allen radiation belts, two large doughnut-shaped rings held in place by the Earth's magnetic field that are filled with fast-moving particles (see graphic below). Lead researcher Professor Daniel Baker, from the University of Colorado at Boulder, said: "It's almost like these electrons are running into a glass wall in space.

www.dessertfortwo I haven’t talked much about living in St Louis, have I? After living in 3 different states in the last 3 years, we struggle to put roots down and get ‘too comfortable’ in any one place. As I write this, we never know where the future will take us. It’s not that we’re not happy in St Louis at all! There’s a huge food scene here, but to be honest, I cook at home. There are TWO food magazines in this city.
