🌕🐇🥚 The Grand Cross of #easter 2019 "This full Moon is important in the western calendar as it marks the first one after the #vernalequinox, which designates the date Friday just before Easter Sunday. The formula for Easter is the first Sunday after the first #fullmoon on or after the vernal equinox. The Western church uses the #gregoriancalendar to set the date, but the Orthodox Church uses the older #juliancalendar. Therefore they generally occur on different dates.

It is truly an honor to receive the State of New York Legislative Resolution by @senatorannakaplan Senator Anna M. Kaplan Memorializing Governor Andrew Cuomo’s to proclaim March21, 2019 as Day of Nowruz in the State of New York! It was so surreal to be at the Senate chamber to witness history! This entire resolution was read at the Senate floor describing Chaharshanbeh Souri, Nowruz and Sizdebedar!!! Many many thanks to Senator Kaplan for this historic event and sending me the actual document! This one is for sure for the books!!! #nowruz#persianpride#parade#vernalequinox

Science + Woo-Woo ⚗️🔮 I’ll admit - when I first started yoga, I’d roll my eyes at the spiritual stuff. I only wanted to know what was proven by science - anatomy, physiology, neurology, etc. I wasn’t going to get caught up in empty fluff or vague concepts like “energy.” If it couldn’t be measured and reliably repeated, I didn’t want to hear it. I would’ve never thought that this insistence on facts would be the thing that made me open to mystery. I started realizing that so many scientific discoveries are obvious in hindsight, it just took the right tools and experiments to see them. It made me wonder - what else is right in front of our eyes that we just don’t have the tools to see yet? For example, insects are able to see UV, and reptiles can sense infrared. Just because we didn’t have the instruments to see UV and infrared light for thousands of years, doesn’t mean they weren’t there all along, or that we didn’t observe its effects (ie: sunburns & body heat). ⚛️ Just because something is beyond our current understanding or perception doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. ⚛️ All science is is educated guesses about the nature of reality based on what we can observe, until we develop the tools to see things more clearly. ⚛️ Science will always have another mystery to be solved, another observation where we have yet to discover the cause - and to me, that’s truly humbling and awesome. If you haven’t yet, I really recommend reading up on the new black hole images this weekend & the 29-year-old computer scientist who helped make them possible! Talk about being able to see science - these images have been compared to being able to taking a pic of an orange on the moon from a smartphone! 🍊👀 I overheard a mother explaining the news to her child the other day, and it was so adorable and admirable - get those kiddos into STEM, stat! 🌟 If this gets you
***HAPPY OSTARA*** #repostplus @ - - - - - - Rabbits are curious little beings by nature 🐰 Much like humans, rabbits become easily bored if their environment remains the same. They need opportunities to socialize, space to run around, and toys to keep them entertained. If they are left alone in a cage without any form of entertainment they can become withdrawn or depressed. ▪️ Rabbits in laboratories and testing facilities are denied of all of this. Since rabbits are mild-tempered, easy to handle and breed very quickly they have become common victims of animal experimentation. ▪️ Despite there being more humane and effective alternatives to animal testing rabbits are still tormented in various tests. One of which is the Draize eye irritancy test where cosmetics, dishwashing liquid, drain cleaner and other substances are dripped into the animals' eyes which causes extreme discomfort. Once the data has been collected the rabbits are killed 💔 ▪️ Please do not support companies that test on animals. It is easy to choose cruelty free. Read the label, check online or get in contact with the cosmetic company if you're not sure 💛 What are your favorite cruelty free cosmetic brands?
