There are great secrets behind the terrifying thinness of Angelina and the story of Brad Pitt delighted and touched many people right in the heart.

“My wife is very ill. She was very nervous for the problems that she had at work, and even in private life, along with the children. She lost so many pounds. Yes, she is too thin. And all of that is due to her crying.

She suffered from severe headaches, heart, and lung and spine pain. She was very tired. She barely slept. And our marriage nearly collapsed.

From the beauty of my wife remained only a dull shadow. She had big dark eye circles and she simply stopped taking care of herself. I thought that this would separate us. I lost every hope.

But just when I was about to give it all up, I got the strength and decided to try to make things right, because beside me I still had the most beautiful woman in the whole world.

Once she was the idol of beauty in the whole world and I am very happy to be the one that could hold her and sleep beside her.

Then I started to give her beautiful flowers and kisses and nice compliments all the time. I was trying to please her in everything and gave her nice surprises every single day. I lived and I live for her. I deliberately talked about her in public and it really worked!

She blossomed and really loved me more than ever. I never knew that she could love so much. And then I finally realized – A woman is a great reflection of each of us, every man.

If you really love her crazy, she will most certainly love you back” said Brad Pitt and made cry millions of people.

Rare Close Encounter of Venus & Jupiter Tonight Won't Happen Again Until 2065

By Calla Cofield, Staff Writer

Tonight (Aug. 27), look toward the western horizon to see a rare celestial event and a parade of planets — no telescope required.

Just above the horizon, Venus and Jupiter will appear so close to each other that, from some locations, the two planets will almost seem to touch. The next time Venus and Jupiter will get this close will be in November 2065.

In addition to keeping a look out for this planetary conjunction, look higher up in the sky to see three other planets on parade: Saturn, Mercury and Mars. [Venus-Jupiter Conjunction 2016: When, Where and How to See It]

Venus and Jupiter will share a rare super close encounter in the night sky on Aug. 27, 2017 during a conjunction that is also known as an appulse. Such a close celestial rendezvous between the two planets won't occur again until 2065.

Where and when to see it
Viewers all over the globe should begin looking for the two planets shortly after sundown, just above the western horizon. Be sure to find a viewing location where the horizon is unobscured by buildings and trees.

For viewers in the northern U.S. and Canada, the planets will appear only about 5 degrees above the western horizon. A clenched fist held at arm's length is about 10 degrees wide, so look for the two bright spots of light about a half a fist above the horizon.

Going south, the planets will appear higher and higher above the horizon: about 10 degrees from Florida, and about 20 degrees from Rio de Janeiro.

The best views of Venus and Jupiter will be from the East Coast of the United States and Canada. Unfortunately, the planets' closest approach will take place before sunset, at about 6 p.m. EDT (2200 GMT). But about 30 minutes after sundown, the light should fade enough to make the two planets (which will still be quite close together) visible to skywatchers. (The sight of these two bright planets apparently converging is so breathtaking that some people think it could explain the Star of Bethlehem story from the Bible.)

At their absolute minimum, the two planets will be separated by 4 arc minutes, where 60 arc minutes equals 1 degree. To get a better idea of how to measure celestial distances, use the Big Dipper for reference: The middle star in the handle of the Dipper is called Mizar, while the faint star just above it is called Alcor. These two stars are separated by 12 arc minutes.

On the East Coast, some viewers may be able to catch the planets separated by as little as 5 arc minutes. On the West Coast of the U.S., the planets will be separated by between 6 and 12 arc minutes. Viewers in North and South America will see the planets grow farther apart as the night progresses.
Viewers in Europe will see the two planets moving closer together, and separated by 12 to 13 arc minutes.

Viewers in Japan, Australia and eastern Asia will see them appear on Sunday night (Aug. 28) local time, separated by about one half a degree (30 arc minutes) — which will still make for a gorgeous sight.

This NASA graphic shows how Venus and Jupiter will be positioned in relation to Earth during their Aug. 27, 2016 conjunction and appulse. While the two planets may appear close in the night sky, Jupiter will be 416 million miles away from Venus at the time.

A special event
Venus and Jupiter will come so close together Saturday evening that they will create a special kind of conjunction called an appulse, when two objects approach each other so closely that they reach (or very nearly reach) the absolute minimum separation.

As a bonus, Venus will be nearly "full" — Earth's sister planet experiences phases, as the moon does, so it can occasionally appear as a crescent in the sky. But on Saturday, 93 percent of the planet will be illuminated, according to NASA.
Telescopes and binoculars are not required for skywatchers to see these five bright planets, but these aids can certainly enhance the experience. Venus and Jupiter will be close enough together to be visible in the same field of view in a telescope. If you live in a big city with lots of light pollution, consider making a trip to a darker location.

The Tragically Heartbreaking And Uplifting Life Of Keanu Reeves Revealed

In 1999, Keanu Reeves became most famous for his role in the groundbreaking science fiction film, The Matrix. It earned an impressive $463.5 million at the box office and was nominated for and won four Academy Awards. The Matrix is a happy story in a lot of ways, but the life of its star wasn’t always.

Now 50 years old, Keanu’s life has been full of more tragedy than you would expect from a movie star. Despite each setback, he’s kept pushing forward. It’s helped develop himself into the awesome person that he is on and off the screen. At the age of three, his father left their family. They stayed in touch for a few years, but after the divorce and moving from city to city, they fell out of contact. Keanu attended four different high schools and struggled with dyslexia, making his education more challenging than it is for most. Eventually he left high school without earning a diploma, though through sheer will, he is an avid reader now. At the age of 23, his closest friend River Phoenix died of a drug overdose. During a Reddit AMA last year, Keanu said: “He was a remarkable human person and actor. We got along very well, and I miss him. I think of him often.”

In 1998, Keanu met Jennifer Syme. The two fell instantly in love and by 1999, Jennifer was pregnant with their daughter. Sadly, after eight months, their child was born stillborn. They were devastated by her death and it eventually ended their relationship. 18 months later, Syme would die in a car accident. In 2006, Reeves told Parade Magazine, “Grief changes shape, but it never ends.” It’s a lesson that we’ll all likely learn. Even with those incredible tragedies, Reeves would push on. He’s starred in a variety of blockbusters and has become a wealthy man, but the pain of his losses has changed how he thinks about money. He’s well known in Hollywood for being among the more charitable actors. After the successes of The Matrix and its sequels, Reeves gave $80 million of his $114 million earnings to the special effects and makeup staff of the films. He also took pay cuts on the films The Replacements and The Devil’s Advocates so stars like Gene Hackman and Al Pacino would agree to be in the film while keeping casting within the designated budget. There are some incredible personal accounts of his kindness as well.

Redditor Kahi made the following comment about the Sad Keanu meme: “A family friend builds movie sets, doesn’t design, is one of the poor dudes that just builds. Anyways he worked on the set for the Matrix and Keanu heard about family trouble he was having and gave him a $20,000 Christmas bonus to help him out. He also was one of the only people on the set that genuinely wanted to know people’s names, would say hello and mean it, and would talk to people as if they were his peers and not below him just because they were practically making nothing to build a set. I’ve never heard anyone say Keanu is a douche, seems like the nicest person in Hollywood from a second hand experience.” In his AMA, he told fans that he likes to keep it simple. In 2003, Keanu told Hello! Magazine: “Money is the last thing I think about. I could live on what I have already made for the next few centuries.”

Even though he’s likely worth $100 million, the man still rides the subway. And he’s super nice about it too.

So in the end, I think we can all pretty well agree that even in the face of tragedy, a stellar person can thrive.

You have experienced the first and second Wave of intense energy in the last 12 months.

Now you are getting ready for the third wave of energy that will give you profound support for your Ascension journey.

Each of these waves are clearing old vibrational patterns in your cellular structure, DNA, emotional body and spiritual body.

Then, new light codes are being disbursed on your planet to lift you up into a higher dimensional reality.

At the same time, these powerful energies and shifts might cause some of you to get thrown off balance emotionally, spiritually and physically.

As you are preparing for this upcoming wave, it is of utmost importance that you tend to your vibrational frequencies, emotional and physical state on a daily bases.

Most importantly, the amount of light codes you will receive, depends on your permission and choice to receive the highest, yet appropriate amount for your individual journey.  

Are you ready to accelerate your ascension and with it a higher dimensional experience?

We recommend that, each morning, you take time to meditate, to set your intent for what you wish to experience and create, that you nurture your physical body with high vibrational foods and clean water, plenty of rest as well as exercise.

You can imagine this time period like a training ground, before the initial wave comes to your planet. (September 9th - 11th)

During the initial wave you will already experience the energies and the more you can tend to your physical, emotional and spiritual body, the better.  

Starting on September 26th, the third wave will arrive at your planet and will continue for several weeks. 

The duration of this wave depends on the level of integration of the collective mass-consciousness of humanity. 

Remain in your emotional, spiritual and physical center as much as you can. 

Together with Adama of Telos and Archangel Michael we will keep you updated during this profound and important time.

5 Techniques to Quiet Your Mind

“Peace does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble, or hard work. Peace means to be in the midst of all those things and still be calm in your heart.” – Unknown

In many ways, the uncontrolled mind resembles a five year old child wanting to run amok through the city streets, only able to sit still for a few seconds before getting the urge to jump up again. If you allow your brain to continuously run a mile a minute without ever interjecting, it will only press on with the madness until you discover that your mind has slowly become a prison.

However, you can actually free your mind, even if it seems impossible in the beginning. Humans are very adaptable creatures, and pick up on new habits throughout their lives. So, in this way, our brains become rewired because we have installed a new operating system in our minds: chaos. To create a peaceful mind, you just need to revert back to your original nature of harmony and balance. Sound difficult? Well, here are some effective techniques to help you regain control of your mind again.


In short, we have collectively created the mass disorder and confusion we observe around us on a daily basis with our thoughts. We have all allowed negative thinking to prevail for many millennia, so the physical world is merely a product of our thoughts. By simply shifting your focus to what makes you happy, or what you’re thankful for, you can start to retrain your mind to think more positively. Consequently, you will start to feel more peaceful since you no longer put so much emphasis on the negativity you perceive within yourself and elsewhere.

Remember, energy flows where attention goes – you can achieve peace by creating awareness behind your thoughts.

Pay attention to your brain at this very moment…what kinds of thoughts do you observe? Most likely, you will notice that the majority of your thoughts center around what you have to do today, or what someone said that made you angry, or even degrading thoughts about yourself. Don’t feel bad, though; with so much negativity around us, maintaining a consistent positive mindset isn’t always easy. However, you can actually counter the negative, stress-inducing thoughts with simple, peaceful words.

Anytime you feel a bout of anxiety coming on, introduce calming words into your awareness, such as: Tranquil. Calm. Peaceful. Serenity. Light. Love. Relaxing. Breeze. Beach. The last two words in the sequence describe scenery, which you can do as well if it makes you feel peaceful. Words carry a lot of meaning and power, so use them to your advantage whenever you feel stressed out.

We suggest meditation a whole lot on our website, but for good reason. When you meditate, you stop the flow of thoughts bombarding your consciousness every second, and instead move into a space where stillness takes precedence. While you don’t have to turn off your brain to meditate, many people feel that their thoughts slow down incredibly, and they can observe themselves much easier with controlled breaths and closed eyes. Meditation simply brings awareness into the body, and makes it much easier to cope with daily challenges.

If you want to cultivate more peace in your mind and life, start meditating, or sitting quietly focusing on nothing but your breath for at least ten minutes a day on a daily basis. You will find that adopting a more peaceful mindset becomes much more attainable.

Forget about the errands you have to run tomorrow after work, or the bills you have to pay next week, or the uncertainty of your future that you haven’t even gotten to yet. When you let thoughts like these ruminate, it can cause great dis-ease within the body, and even lead to anxiety, depression, chronic stress, and other serious problems. Most anxiety is caused by simply living in a time other than the one we have right now, so bring yourself back to the present whenever you feel your thoughts taking you elsewhere.

By allowing yourself to flow from one moment to the next, just as you did as a child, you will recapture what it means to feel true peace.

This could mean going on your lunch break in a nearby park, or going on a vacation to get away from the stress of daily life. Anything you can do to strengthen your bond with nature will greatly benefit your mind, and help you remember that we create most stress we feel in our mind and body. We originated in a place of pure harmony, and most of what we see around us is just a very persistent illusion. Remember that nature doesn’t struggle through life, and you don’t have to, either. Don’t get too caught up with the trivial matters of the material world, because you won’t find peace in numbers or possessions.

Truthfully, peace resides within your heart already, but Mother Earth can help you remember this by providing solace from the strains of modern society.

Astrology in August 2016 - Mars Conjunct Saturn at 10 Sagittarius

by Robert Wilkinson

Mars conjuncts Saturn at 4:27 am PDT, 12:27 pm BST on August 24. These conjunctions occur every two years, and initiate a new set of responsibilities and activities wherever they fall in our chart.

As I promised in part 1, today we’ll take a look back at previous Mars-Saturn cycles and their qualities.

The 2012 conjunction happened at 25 Libra in August 2012, and the one before that happened at 1 Libra July 2010. These activated the house where they happened, and set up major themes during each two years period in all of us. We now begin a new cycle of these important planetary energies.

The house where these conjunctions happen shows us where major activities and responsibilities get focused for the two years after the conjunction. Think back on the house affairs activated by the one at 1 Libra and reflect on how there were new initiatives and responsibilities in that area of your life between Summer 2010 and Summer 2012. Use the same principle to the house affairs activated by the one at 25 Libra, and see what fulfilled itself between Summer 2012 and now.

The Mars-Saturn cycle that began in 2010 was a period when we learned to express a new archetype of our Being. Many were “made sacred” through a symbolic “crucifixion” that was an initiation into a vaster spiritual reality and wisdom. Many experienced “sudden awakenings” and a desire to contact and demonstrate our inner Light.

The two year Mars-Saturn cycle that ended in August 2014 began at 25 Libra, and promised us forms of wisdom after our intellect wearied of its games. Those two years we did a lot of repair or reconstruction work on the social, emotional, or cultural level, and seen hidden meanings in what ended.

Those years were a period of discovering deeper wisdom after the end of things, and we experienced growth through becoming aware of basic meanings. Our imagination and inner experience gave us efficient means to assist the welfare of those in our lives through understanding the interdependence of the world and the individual.

The Mars-Saturn cycle that just ended began at 18 Scorpio, promising us all new initiatives and duties in the house where it occurred. We intensified our focus and went beyond old forms, and navigated several important forks in the road of our destiny relative to the larger events shaping our options. Every one of us has been purified and transfigured in ways that changed our lives at some point in the past two years, and are now freed to move into the next phase of our evolution.

There were many interpersonal gear grinds these past two years, and we had to learn to reduce everything to simple terms, issues, and solutions while figuring out what we needed to do to enjoy life more. All of us were searching for a bigger picture, a greater sense of community, a sense we were fulfilling our goals, and leaving behind egocentric people who didn’t care who they hurt.

The last on fell at 18 Scorpio, indicating that we have all been assisted by Nature in sensing “eternal and illimitable resources” to further our ideals. We fulfilled a lot, and found success in areas “of true self-interest.” We eliminated many obsolete and/or destructive things these past two years, and went deeper into our faith and magnetism. That has now has left us in a transfigured state in the Scorpio area of our life, and we stand on the threshold of the next one that begins at 10 Sagittarius.

In general, Mars conjunct Saturn fuses the influence related to houses and planets ruled by Aries, Scorpio, Capricorn, and Aquarius. This fusion is focused through the house where we have 10 Sagittarius. This is a major renewal and rebeginning for those born in late November and early December, and brings together areas involving finances, resources, ideas, communications, creativity, and motivation.

It is a point of critical emergence for those born in late August and early September. It involves areas related to the immediate environment, sibling relations, neighbors, communications, creative self-expression, children, work, health, service, loss, regeneration, legacies, and magnetism.
For those born the end of May and beginning of June, this is a time when partnerships will be the focus, and it will bring together areas involving health, work, service, loss, legacies, magnetism, truth, higher education, spiritual-philosophical inclinations, ambitions, friendship, and group work. For those born the end of February and beginning of March, it is the fulfillment of many years of striving, and should bring professional promotions and high recognition. It brings together areas involving money, resources, values, truth, future, higher education, goals, ambitions, friendships, group work, and motives.

Those born in late March and early April, late July and early August, late September and early October, and late January and early February will find many harmonious, productive, and stabilizing activities over the next two years in the area this conjunction falls in the chart. There will be major adjustments and expansions through sacrifices for those born in late April, early May, late June and early July. Unique gifts will be found by many due to the many quintiles in this chart, with a special focus on late September and mid-February.

Of course, if you’re not born during the times of the months I just mentioned, you also are highly affected, but in different ways than what I’ve just outlined. Entire generations with outer planets in certain parts of certain signs are also profoundly affected, but to go into all possibilities would be cumbersome here.

For a brief example of generations affected by this, people born between 1942 and mid-1951 have their Pluto trined by this conjunction. People born between late 1959 and mid-1966 have their Pluto squared by this conjunction. This Mars-Saturn conjuncts the Neptune of those born between late 1971 and Autumn 1980, conjuncts the Uranus of those born between 1982-1985, and conjuncts the Pluto of those born between 1996 and 2003.

Of major importance is that it falls on the Saturn of those born November 1956 through October 1958 and December 1985 through November 1987, marking in each case the Saturn return. These groups will experience "forced growth" in the areas where they're most fearful or rigid, though there are major rewards to be gained by taking responsibility for expressing a truth or higher awareness. This is one of the most important events in a human life, which is why I’ve devoted an entire chapter to it in my new book on Saturn coming out in a few weeks. You can also find out more by consulting the related article in the site archives.

So check out the house it falls in and the aspects it makes to all your planets, since even those without 1o Sagittarius active can be profoundly affected. For example, while I don’t have anything in Sagittarius in my chart, the conjunction falls exactly trine my Sun and Ascendant, sextile my Moon, triseptile my Venus, sesquisquare my Mars, quintile my Saturn, biquintile my Uranus, septile my Neptune, and trine my Pluto. These indicate which parts of my life will be affected, and how.

It’s safe to say that everyone on Earth will be affected in important ways via the house in which it falls and the houses Mars and Saturn rule in your charts. And it seems that we’ll all wind up being spurred to some form of social or emotional growth that will yield huge rewards these next two years. And away we go!
