Watch on sagansense.tumblr.com

It vexes me when they would constrain science by the authority of the Scriptures, and yet do not consider themselves bound to answer reason and experiment.

Nature is relentless and unchangeable, and it is indifferent as to whether its hidden reasons and actions are understandable to man or not.

By denying scientific principles, one may maintain any paradox.

Facts which at first seem improbable will, even on scant explanation, drop the cloak which has hidden them and stand forth in naked and simple beauty.

I think that in the discussion of natural problems we ought to begin not with the Scriptures, but with experiments, and demonstrations.

Intuitive readings available at Second Reverie

Hi there! Most of you who follow me know I do intuitive readings, so this may not come as a surprise… but I wanted to make an official, fancy post!

One Card Reading - ideal if you’re looking for a very simple, very quick message. Great option if you have a specific topic in mind or just want to know what you should be focusing on at the time.

Silver Lining - this reading is based off of the "I am, I have, I do" spread I created. Often, when life gets crazy, we sometimes need reassurance about the things that are already going well, before we are ready to deal with anything else. This reading focuses on being empowering and uplifting (so it’s like a divine hug).

Quick Reading - this reading is best for folks who have a specific situation in mind and want to know what they can do to get their desired outcome. (This is a more detailed version of the One Card Reading, and a less detailed version of the Celtic Cross.)

Spiritual Path Reading - this one focuses on spirituality/religious questions. If you’re struggling spiritually, or feeling like your religion isn’t working out for you, this reading can help you re-connect with your spirituality. It will also guide you towards finding religious practices that are more suited to you and what you need right now.

Celtic Cross - If you want a little more info about your situation than just the situation, challenges, advice, and outcome, this spread expands upon those 4 areas and weaves them together into a helpful narrative. This option works for most areas of interest, including relationships (including friendships and romantic relationships), career/job options, home life and family, and more.

Life Spread Reading - if you want to know about EVERYTHING and you want to have a mini book that you can consult for the next year, this is the reading for you. At $75 it’s the most expensive reading I offer but it’s consistently the BEST reviewed reading I’ve ever done. (So consider getting it!)

Saturn: Moons

Saturn has a great many more moons than our planet – a whopping 62. A single moon, Titan, accounts for an overwhelming 96% of all the material orbit the planet, with a group of six other smaller moons dominating the rest. The other 55 small satellites whizzing around Saturn make up the tiny remainder along with the gas giant’s famous rings.

 One of the subjects of this Cassini image, Rhea, belongs to that group of six. Set against a backdrop showing Saturn and its intricate system of icy rings, Rhea dominates the scene and dwarfs its tiny companion, one of the 55 small satellites known as Epimetheus.

 Although they appear to be close to one another, this is a trick of perspective – this view was obtained when Cassini was some 1.2 million km from Rhea, and 1.6 million km from Epimetheus, meaning the moons themselves had a hefty separation of 400 000 km.

 However, even if they were nearer to each other, Rhea would still loom large over Epimetheus: at 1528 km across and just under half the size of our own Moon, Rhea is well over 10 times the size of Epimetheus, which is a modest 113 km across.

 As is traditional for the earliest discovered moons of Saturn, both are named after figures from Greek mythology: the Titan Rhea (“mother of the gods”) and Prometheus’ brother Epimetheus (“after thinker” or “hindsight”).

This image was taken by Cassini’s narrow-angle camera on 24 March 2010, and processed by amateur astronomer Gordan Ugarković. A monochrome version was previously released by NASA as PIA12638: Big and Small Before Rings.

in case ppl care, the first song that came up on my search for those lyrics was actually a song by that exact title, including the “it” and the ‘s”

"It All Comes Out In The Wash" - by Self

Miracle man - such pitiful hands
Undermining my plans and truths
Don’t need no television
Telling me what should be done
Neither should you

All I want from life
Is a car that I can drive
Home from work - late at night
From my 9 to 5
And If I don’t survive
I guess all I want from life
Is to know that I tried before I died

Setting the scene
Ripped from a magazine from the day before
Such pointless info
Over and Over and Over again
Your fumbling to make amends
Just let it go
Now it’s in the way that you shake your head at me
Now it’s in the way that you make your bed for me

(So there are two songs and the general saying for those who like to analyse :)

Healing with Carnelian

Color: Red, orange, pink, brown

Appearance: Small, translucent pebble, often water-worn or tumbled

Rarity: Common

Source: Britain, India, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Peru, Iceland, Romania

Healing: Carnelian is full of the life force and vitality. It stimulates the metabolism. Carnelian activates the base chakra, influences the female reproductive organs, and increases fertility. This stone overcomes frigidity and impotence, heals lower back problems, rheumatism arthritis, neuralgia, and depression, especially in those of advanced years. It regulates bodily fluids and the kidneys, accelerates healing in bones and ligaments, and stanches blood. Carnelian improves the absorption of vitamins and minerals and ensures a good supply of blood to organs and tissue.

Position: Use as a pendant or belt buckle, or place in contact with the skin as appropriate. Carnelian near the front door invokes protection and invites abundance into the home.

srslycris replied to your post: It’s been 100 years since both of …

A gay man who thinks Harry tops explained the 1st one as Harry having a sudden chill or something (??). I do not participate in the “who tops” debate, but I thought that explanation of the moment was about the nuttiest I’ve heard.

itiswhatitusedtobe said: 

i’ve heard that harry was about to sneeze in the first one, it still doesn’t explain louis’ smirk. He looks so proud of himself

I read that same post with the ‘he was about to sneeze’ explanation from the gay blogger and I’m sorry, but it makes absolutely NO SENSE. 

When you sneeze, or are fighting one off, the action starts at your head; you end up pulling that contorted face and scrunching your neck up and twisting away, or into yourself

On the other hand, in the butt stuff gif, Harry starts moving from below the waist first and it travels up to his face in reaction. I’ve never known anyone to ‘clench’ their lower body first because of an oncoming sneeze.

Plus if nothing else, the look on Louis’ face clearly shows that he is the smuggest motherfucker out there and there’s no denying that he was absolutely up to no good at that exact moment. 

Clearly it’s butt stuff.

shadowofdragonstone said:

What about Stannis, Thoros and Selyse doing the Ice Bucket challenge?

Stannis straight up refuses.  He donates instead.  Nothing anyone says changes that, though he almost wavers with Shireen.

Thoros does the challenge surrounded by the Brotherhood without Banners, who each insist on poring a separate bucket on him.  He nominates Beric Dondarrion, Anguy, and Tom of Sevenstreams.

Selyse Baratheon gets dunked by Mel and she starts streaming almost as soon as the water hits her.  She nominates Robert Baratheon, Cersei Lannister, and Renly Baratheon, because she believes in targeting enemies.

SYMBOLISM

ALCHEMY SYMBOLS:

PENTACLE

Quite the opposite of its unfortunate reputation, the Pentacle is a symbol of harmony, health and mystic powers. The Pythagoreans adopted it as a sign of health and the marriage of heaven and earth. As a sign of heaven, earth, as well as human body and mind, the Pentacle holds great power. So much so, that it was used as a protective emblem among alchemists and magicians alike. Specifically, alchemists would press this symbol on Hermetic Books to emphasize the knowledge within as being protected and sacred.

In Wicca, the five points represent the five elements and their metaphysical aspects. The element of earth represents physical endurance and stability and is the symbol of the lower left point. The lower right point is symbolic of fire, which represents courage. The element of water represents intuition and emotion and is the meaning of the upper right point. The upper left point symbolizes air and represents intelligence. The fifth point is symbolic of the element of spirit, and represents the divine. The meaning is basically similar to the old saying “mind over matter,” which means the ability of one’s spirit to control the lower aspects of our being.

Tanzanite

Primary Chakras: Throat, Third Eye, Crown, Higher Crown
Astrological signs: Gemini, Libra, Sagittarius, Pisces
Vibration: Number 2

A relatively new gift from Mother Earth, Tanzanite was first discovered in 1967 in Tanzania, Africa. Tanzanite is the bluish-purple variety of Zoisite.

Tanzanite increases communication with the Spiritual world and facilitates access to ancient wisdom, especially to the spiritual knowledge of ancient indigenous tribal cultures. Tanzanite opens the Crown Chakra to show visualizations of higher spiritual realms. Good for spiritual exploration and inner journeys, Tanzanite aids visualization in meditations. Use Tanzanite to deepen guided group meditations. The Throat and Third Eye Chakras are also activated by Tanzanite. Tanzanite facilitates integration between these two Chakras, simultaneously boosting psychic powers and communication, making it easier to communicate visions.

The glow of Tanzanite increases your inner light, increasing health and vitality. Tanzanite also reduces stress, helping you to slow down. In the stillness that is created, quieter sides of your personality can emerge, allowing a more balanced state of being.

Physically, Tanzanite is a wonderful stone to use in soothing depression, anxiety and panic. Use to aid the immune system and ease inflammation.
