The stars are a database of information, from overcoming struggles, to forming healthy relationships, to improving your character, and so much more. This knowledge has been used since ancient times in various cultures, and now it has been passed to you.
NASA Updates Star Signs for the First Time In 2,000 Years
The stars have shifted due to the wobbling effect of the Earth caused by the sun and the moon over the last two to three thousand years.
The sky is different than what the ancient astrologers viewed. Now, the constellations are off by about a month.
Therefore 86% of people are living under the wrong horoscope. (1)

After a long enough time together, your relationship with your significant other might feel stagnated or having lost some of the ‘spark’ you once had.
This doesn’t necessarily mean you love each other any less, but it could be a sign that you need a fresh boost of energy individually and as a couple. A spiritual and dietary detox might be just what you need to help your relationship recapture the magic of the past.
A spiritual detox is a great way to clean and refresh your mind, body and soul as each is affected by the other.
It is rooted in the idea that everything is energy; humans, animals, plants, thoughts, emotions, etc. and that you carry this energy with you at all times.
It’s recommended to do this cleanse at least once per season so you both are continually refreshing yourselves and each other.
The entire purpose of this cleanse is to replace negative energy with positive so always keep an open mind and stay upbeat with your partner!
1. Visualize your aura
- Sit in a distraction-free area of your house. You can do this together, but it’s important to not let each other become a distraction during the exercise.
- Relax for 15 minutes by controlling your breathing and de-stressing
- Visualize a white light in your mind and have it surround you. Allow it to flow through you as you visualize it moving up and down your back and spine. Continue reading
If anyone has ever told you that they’ve just seen your double, or if you’ve ever seen a double of a friend or family member, you’ll be familiar with the odd sensation that accompanies this revelation. It’s a scenario that can suddenly strike doubt into your day and make you question reality a little bit. Your identity suddenly not so unique, an imposter in your midst!
One artist, Francois Brunelle, began a project exploring this weird phenomenon. Find some of his work in this article, and more here!
A Brief History of Doppelgängers
In traditional folklore, a doppelgänger is somebody’s double, sometimes considered an evil twin or even a harbinger of bad luck.
From the German words Doppel (double) and gänger (goer or walker), the doppelgänger is a concept that has been seen time and again in different stories and myths from many cultures around the world. However, a mid-19th-century book called ‘The Night Side of Nature’ by Catherine Crowe, which dealt with paranormal phenomena, popularized the German word and brought it to mass consciousness.
Typically, in many tales involving these apparitions, seeing a doppelgänger of a friend or relative is thought to mean that ill health is about to befall them. Seeing one’s own doppelgänger is an omen of death. Continue reading
Science fiction has been warning us about the dangers of ‘playing God’ ever since Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein in 1818. However, in the past two months, there have been two separate scientific studies published about biohybrid robots; machines made from living cells.
Although the surface implications of such research initially appear to be little more than an attempt by a group of scientists to tamper with the laws of nature, there are practical reasons behind the research.
The traditional image of a large metal robot has serious practical issues. A bulky robot presents serious safety risks for any people working with it, as the slightest malfunction could cause injury or even fatality. Animal-like machines will (in theory) be able to perform tasks with an increased level of intricacy.
The scientists involved in both studies, Case Western Reserve University and Harvard University, believe that these biohybrid robots will ultimately prove to be less harmful and destructive to both people and the environment. However, creating such complex ‘machines’ is no easy task. Continue reading
It’s happened to us all at least once before; you just bought your new favorite shirt, wore it once and threw it in the wash. When you pulled it out of the dryer it somehow shrank so much it may as well be a crop top. Wouldn’t it be great that were just a thing of the past? Well, you may not have to wait as long as you might think.
No Heat, No Problem
Scientists at the US Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory together with General Electric Appliances have developed a new dryer that uses vibrations of a high frequency to wick away the moisture from clothes.
The machine utilizes piezoelectric transducers, no bigger than a silver dollar, wired to an amplifier that rapidly expand and contract to separate the water and the fabric.
As a result, it doesn’t use heat like a conventional dryer, producing a cool mist instead of hot air which as we all know leads to the dreaded shrinking shirt problem. The Department of Energy says current dryers are responsible for 1% of America’s total energy consumption, costing roughly $9 billion a year. So a technology that makes drying 70% more efficient and completed in roughly 20 minutes would be a game changer. Continue reading
“If you think about it, photosynthesis is amazing. It takes sunlight, water, and air — and then look at a tree. That’s exactly what we did, but we do it significantly better because we turn all that energy into fuel.” ~Daniel Nocera
Photosynthesis powers nearly all life on earth. The evolution of photosynthesizing organisms 3.4 billion years ago was the beginning of natural processes that have led to plants, animals and ultimately us. It is one of the most efficient energy creation processes in the natural world. However, two teams at Harvard University, led by a chemist and a biologist, may have finally created a manmade improvement on this fundamental process.
The Bionic Leaf
Together Daniel Nocera and Pamela Silver and their teams have invented a bionic leaf that produces energy ten times more efficiently than photosynthesis in plants. The ‘leaf’ is more accurately described as a living battery, although it was called a leaf as a tribute to the perfect marriage of chemistry and biology that created it.
The device uses solar energy (like a plant) from a photovoltaic panel to power the chemical reaction, which splits water from a compound into the individual elements oxygen and hydrogen. Once this reaction has occurred, microbes within the mechanism feed on the hydrogen and convert carbon dioxide into alcohol, which can later be used as fuel.
Although the system has been proven to be able to create fuel Silver sees the uses of the ‘leaf’ as much farther reaching. ‘The beauty of biology is it’s the world’s greatest chemist — biology can do chemistry we can’t do easily,’ she said. ‘In principle, we have a platform that can make any downstream carbon-based molecule. So this has the potential to be incredibly versatile.’ Continue reading
