The truth about narwhals... 😂 Actually, thanks to new drone footage, scientists have finally figured out the purpose of the narwhal's tusk (and, nope, it's nothing to do with unicorns!) Turns out they use their tusks to hit and stun Arctic cod, making them easier to eat. ✏️: freackypaul.deviantart.com #narwhals #unicorns #cartoons #funny#science #ocean #sciencealert #narwhal

🌒🌓🌔 What causes tides? 🌖🌗🌘

The gravitational pull of the Moon “lifts up” the oceans. This liquid bulge is constantly drawn toward the Moon. Because the Earth rotates, alternating high and low tides are observed. The Sun also influences the tides, though to a lesser extent due to its distance. If it is aligned with the Moon, stronger tides known as spring tides are observed. This phenomenon coincides with the full moon and the new moon. Conversely, when the Sun and the Moon are perpendicular, we observe neap tides. This phenomenon coincides with the first and third quarters of the moon. 🌜🌝🌛

In modern terms, it is a time for owning one’s shadow, so as to transform any negative energy associated with it into the energy of creation and psychic ability. We must accept and know our Darkness before we can fully know our Light." _Use this time for manifestation of your goals, dreams and ambitions for the next 6...
