On April 22, 1970, millions of people took to the streets to protest the negative impacts of 150 years of industrial development. In the U.S. and around the world, smog was becoming deadly and evidence was growing that pollution led to developmental delays in children. Biodiversity was in decline as a result of the heavy use of pesticides and other pollutants. The global ecological awareness was growing, and the US Congress and President Nixon responded quickly. In July of the same year, they created the Environmental Protection Agency, and robust environmental laws such as the Clean Water Act and the Endangered Species Act, among many. One billion people Earth Day is now a global event each year, and we believe that more than 1 billion people in 192 countries now take part in what is the largest civic-focused day of action in the world. It is a day of political action and civic participation. People march, sign petitions, meet with their elected officials, plant trees, clean up their towns and roads. Corporations and governments use it to make pledges and announce sustainability measures. Faith leaders, including Pope Francis, connect Earth Day with protecting God’s greatest creations, humans, biodiversity and the planet that we all live on. Earth Day Network, the organization that leads Earth Day worldwide, has chosen as the theme for 2018 to End Plastic Pollution, including creating support for a global effort to eliminate primarily single-use plastics along with global regulation for the disposal of plastics. EDN is educating millions of people about the health and other risks associated with the use and disposal of plastics, including pollution of our oceans, water, and wildlife, and about the growing body of evidence that plastic waste is creating serious global problems. From poisoning and injuring marine life to the ubiquitous presence of plastics in our food to disrupting human hormones and causing major life-threatening diseases and early

WHAT ELSE CAN WE EXPECT FROM TAURUS SEASON? - 7 of Pentacles, The Lovers Rx & 2 of Swords - Taurus season will mainly be focusing on us cultivating our goals and slowly building up progress, self love and decision making. We know now that there's not really any way to make short cuts when it comes to what we're working on, and the only thing that will get us to where we need is our time, effort and investment. We know that if we put our determination into it every single day and focus on making it what it is, then we'll get to exactly where we dream on being in the future. The journey you travel will be a long one, so you've got to learn to enjoy it along the way otherwise you will lose passion very fast. But like they always say, its about the journey not the destination, and this path will grow you into the best person you could possibly be and you will learn and achieve so much while you walk it. So keep in mind, the effort and resilience you show while tackling your goals will lead you to success. We'll also be taking a way deeper look at how we love ourselves and see our own value in this world. This is something we've been working on heaps lately, and we've made so much progress, although we're not completely there yet. We'll be realising our own strengths more and seeing what we really do bring to the world and that we wouldn't want to be anyone else but ourselves. Try not to let yourself fall back into the habit of avoiding responsibility for how you act, because this is the opposite of self love. You can't avoid things anymore, especially when it comes to how you perceive yourself, so take that blindfold off, own up to who you really are and learn to love yourself anyway! Don't be ignorant to the truth that is right in front of you because you feel like it's too much to process. Nothing is going to resolve itself or make anything happen out of pure magic, so your effort is needed in all aspects of your life. It's time to be shown how important that is.
'Keep pushing forward no matter what, we see you, we love you.' What a wonderful surprise, can't explain how thankful I am and what good timing this was. No other words needed, I have the best support in the world. 🛸🌙
