All the decor inspiration you need to revamp just about any room. From Good Housekeeping
On February 28, three celestial bodies will meet in the sky to form a Grand Earth Trine: the moon in Virgo, Pluto in Capricorn, and Mars in Taurus. If it sounds fancy to you, that’s because it kind of is — a grand trine is a rare aspect that occurs when three planets are all equidistant from one another, creating an equilateral triangle. Grand trines are often seen as a time of harmony and good fortune. This aspect only happens in one zodiac element at a time, and this weekend’s grand trine will occur in grounded, stable earth signs. “A grand trine represents something different in every element,” Lisa Stardust, an astrologer based in New York City, tells Refinery29. “In earth signs, it shows growth, creativity, wisdom, pride, and sensuality.” This is a big moment for us to break free from what no longer serves us. Thanks to the powerful full moon in Virgo energy happening the day before this grand trine occurs, this letting go energy is even more potent. Together, these two planetary events are pushing us to move forward and embrace growth. “Pluto wants to rebuild, Mars wants to take action, and the moon is our security,” Stardust explains. “So, it’s a time to think about change and growth.” Think about where you are in your career and in your relationships — is there anything you want to change, or get better at? The energy of this transit is what will inspire you to bring in the new and start things fresh. Now’s the time to commit to making real, tangible change to help things move forward. “This aspect can really help us center as well as make considerable steps towards a desired goal,” says Narayana Montúfar, senior astrologer for Astrology.com. “Since the zodiac signs involved are very smart at making money, for example, this is a day for asking for a raise or coming up with an ambitious financial plan.” You hear her: Open that savings account, set up a meeting with your boss about your compensation, and take control of your situation — the power of this transit is behind you. The major mistake to avoid making during the Grand Earth Trine this weekend is to ignore it. Letting this energy pass you by may deter your forward progress in the long run, according to Stardust. “The only downfall is that grand trines can become lazy when the energy isn’t applied properly,” she says. “They can give up early, as the flow of energy can become hedonistic, indulgent, and selfish.” You may feel pulled to lay low and indulge in your sloth, but we’re warning you that you’d be missing out on some powerful energy. Leslie Hale, psychic astrologer for Keen.com, agrees, and says that the most important thing to remember about a grand trine is to not take its luck for granted. “If complacency or passiveness occurs, you lose the opportunities for growth and fulfillment of the positive energy the grand trine brings,” she warns. So, don’t be stagnant. Have a plan of action or list of goals in place this weekend aimed at creating change and fostering meaningful growth. As we’re inching closer to our one year anniversary of the pandemic hitting American soil, we may all be collectively feeling like we’ve hit a wall. But with the Grand Earth Trine behind us, we’ll be strong enough to push through. Like what you see?

When Wyoming U.S. Sen. John Barrasso snapped at Deb Haaland during her confirmation hearing, many in Indian Country were incensed. The exchange, coupled with descriptions of the Interior secretary nominee as “radical” — by other white, male Republicans — left some feeling Haaland is being treated differently because she is a Native American woman. At Wednesday's hearing, Barrasso wanted assurance that Haaland would follow the law when it comes to imperiled species.

On Thursday, Former USA Olympic Gymnastics coach John Geddert died by suicide hours after being charged with 24 felonies. The human trafficking charges followed accusations that he abused gymnasts in his care. Police found Geddert’s body at an interstate highway rest stop hours after he was criminally charged in Michigan for his ties to the disgraced former USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar, who pleaded guilty to sexually abusing 10 minors in 2018. Geddert had agreed to surrender to the sheriff’s office on Thursday afternoon before a scheduled 2:15 p.m. arraignment, but he never showed, ESPN reported. Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel called Geddert’s suicide “a tragic end to a tragic story for everyone involved.” A spokesperson for Nessel told ESPN, “We had no indication that Geddert intended to flee or hurt himself or others. We had been in contact with his attorney and were assured of his cooperation.” The investigation into his death is “ongoing; no further details will be released at this time,” police said in a statement. Of the 24 felonies Geddert was charged with, 20 counts were for human trafficking and forced labor; one was for first-degree sexual assault; one was for second-degree sexual assault, racketeering, and lying to a police officer. Geddert, who led the U.S. women’s gymnastics team at the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London, was accused of “sexual penetration” of a girl under 16 in January 2012, according to the complaint. The Michigan Attorney General’s office also said Geddert was aware Nassar was sexually abusing gymnasts, and both men lied to police about it during the 2016 investigation. Nessel also said that victims of his abuse “suffer from disordered eating, including bulimia and anorexia, suicide attempts and self-harm, excessive physical conditioning, repeatedly being forced to perform even when injured, extreme emotional abuse and physical abuse, including sexual assault. Many of these victims still carry these scars from his behavior to this day.” USA Gymnastics came under scrutiny in 2016 as 332 survivors of sexual assault came forward with allegations that they had been abused by Nassar in one of the biggest sexual violence reckonings in sports. Many athletes spoke out following the news of Geddert’s suicide, including Olympic gold medalist Aly Raisman, a survivor of Nassar’s abuse who was vocal about her experiences. “Sick to my stomach,” Raisman wrote on Twitter. She added, “Thinking of the survivors out there. Wish there was more I could say to ease the pain & suffering.” Sarah Klein, the first-known survivor of Nassar’s abuse, blamed officials at top gymnastics organizations for “enabling” Geddert, whom she described as a “narcissistic abuser,” CNN reports. Klein was one of the 150 survivors to speak up about Nassar’s abuse in 2018. “The bravery of Geddert’s many victims will stand for all time in stark contrast to his cowardice,” she said Thursday. “As a survivor and a mother of two young girls, my only comfort is in the knowledge that I can rest my head on the pillow every night knowing that John Geddert will never terrorize and abuse another child.” Like what you see?

In the spring of 2015, I found myself being politely, but firmly, asked to leave Bonhams auction house in London. It doesn’t happen every day, and I do not have the manner or personality of an anarchist. I had just overstayed my welcome and taken far too many notes. The auctioneers did not approve. The letters I had lost myself in were by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. They were to the chief of Staffordshire police, Captain George A Anson. They dealt with the infamous George Edalji case. As an author, I have always enjoyed uncovering the forgotten stories of history, particularly those that link Britain and India during the days of the Raj. In 2017 my book Victoria and Abdul, about Queen Victoria’s relationship with a young Indian attendant, was made into a film starring Judi Dench and Ali Fazal. George Edalji had been on my to-do list even before I wrote that book. In 1907, he became a sensation, when Conan Doyle rose to his defence. It was fascinating for me that the only case investigated personally by Conan Doyle was that of an Indian. I put the project on hold in 2005 when Julian Barnes published a novel based on the case, Arthur & George, but the story continued to grip me and when I heard about the forthcoming sale of previously unseen documents at Bonhams, which included not just the letters from Conan Doyle but police files on the case, I took it as a sign. Here, finally, was the chance I’d been waiting for to tell the real history of the case. And what I discovered cast proceedings in an entirely new light. Conan Doyle, it transpired, was nowhere near as smart as his fictional creation, Sherlock Holmes. He was, in fact, led a merry dance by a corrupt police chief – Captain Anson – who completely outfoxed him.
