8th-c

the 8th house concerns itself with invisible mystique… sometimes people with uranus in the 8th house can have a prophetic knowledge of when death will occur, and pluto in the 8th is inherently bonded with their own immortality, the infinite continuation of their spirit, the continuation of light 
they are sort of karmic lords. neptune in the 8th mysteries surround the dead and their seamless voyages from consciousness to obliteration, as if they imitate a death like state
saturn in the 8th house seems to have spiritual debts to pay in the material world. the dream state here can be quite profound, however terrifying. jupiter in the 8th is drawn to the lustre of spirituality, the symbolism of religion, they seem to celebrate the idea of death in the way they revere the gift of life 
mars in the 8th house is on a crusade through invisible battlefields. this is psychic power. venus in the 8th evokes them mysteries of love, the continuation of bonds once the spirit has crossed over, til death do us part. and moon in the 8th house wanes into a spiritual sensitivity that is rich with ancestral guardianship, passed love ones speak through them, and those who stood before them. mercury in the 8th plan and do everything in secret. everything about them is a mystery. they communicate with unseen forces, mostly unwillingly. sun in the 8th turns inward, using solar light to illuminate 8th house shadow, to turn a lantern on the eternal source that resides deep inside

Crush Imagine #23

“Hey remember that pact we made in the 8th grade?” y/c asked me. I frowned, I had no clue what he was talking about. “the one about prom…” he hinted. It clicked. 

“Of course, if we don’t have dates, we go together” I grinned. “But you have a date” I pointed out. 

“No I dumped her last month” y/c cringed. 

“What?! Why didn’t you tell me!” my jaw dropped. Y/c and his girl friend were very low key, after all she went to a different high school. 

“I thought you and y/f had a fling so I didn’t want to guilt you” y/c admitted. 

“That is so sweet, but y/f and I are just friends. Always have been. Besides, he has a date” I giggled. 

“Well, that means it’s not you then. Come here” he put a blindfold around my eyes and led me somewhere. 

“Am I about to be promposed to?” I asked excitedly. 

“Would you just walk” y/c chuckled. “Alright stop” he let go of my hand. “Take off the blindfold” he shouted. I took off the blindfold and laughed. Y/c and his soccer teammates were lined up on the field. His friends had “P-R-O-M-?” written on their chests, and y/c was fully clothed a teddy bear. I ran towards y/c and leapt into his arms. 

“Yes, a million times yes” I laughed. 

“Well then my date, I guess we better make us official” he dipped me, and kissed me.

So tomorrow is my last day of high school and I’m writing W’s letter tonight and no lie, I’m freaking out a little. I’ve been in contact with C (my 8th grade math teacher that I became very close to) lately and I invited him to come to the graduation ceremony next Saturday. He said that he’s never been invited before and he seemed really happy. I am going to give him his ticket Friday after he gets off of work and I’m pretty pumped. So this is what C wrote in my 8th grade yearbook…it sure was different from what W wrote in my yearbook this year.

Constellations Weekly Q&A

W/C 8th May 2017 
Question: If you could learn any language fluently what would it be?

I wish I could know every language that’d be so cool. For now though, I just need to stop blending French and Japanese OTL

I spent a few years studying Spanish but never really got anywhere close to being fluent. I’d like to pick it up again and learn more because it’s such a beautiful language.

Japanese if I had to pick one. I’m trying to teach myself it and I’m currently doing German at school.

I’d really like to speak Korean fluently <3

The ones I’m currently learning. I’ve taken Japanese, Chinese, French, and German and started self teaching Korean, Thai, and Indonesian. I’d like to become fluent so that I can speak to everyone and reach a wider audience when I do a variety of activities. I also think it’d be a great skill if I ever decide to go to acting classes in order to become an actress.

All languages. They’re fun to learn ^^
