Mind-of-Mirrors

Moon sign needs

🌕🌖🌗🌘🌑🌒🌓🌔🌕

The moon sign is your subconscious and emotions but it also shows what you need

Aries Moon: Needs autonomy, challenges, action, novelty and to be “first.” Wants to feel alive but can also be demanding of attention! Needs a challenge but also to be babied and attended to at times.

Taurus Moon: Needs stability, material comforts, affection, beauty, to feel that they’re building something lasting.

Gemini Moon: Needs constant communication, new ideas, stimulating conversation. Drawn to kindred spirits, a “meeting of the minds” and someone who can mirror or reflect things back to you.

Cancer Moon: Needs nurturing, safety, family and creature comforts (good food, nesting, cozy clothes). Can be fearful of abandonment and require lots of reassurance.

Leo Moon: Needs attention, glamour, affection, non-stop entertainment and playfulness. Craves excitement and a conquest. Strong sense of leadership that needs to be expressed.

Virgo Moon: Needs order, to feel helpful and of service, mental stimulation. Likes to problem-solve and analyze, but can be anxious or worrisome.

Libra Moon: Needs harmony, beauty, companionship, equality. Hates conflict and craves a peaceful and aesthetically pleasing environment.

Scorpio Moon: Needs privacy, intensity, soul bonding. Has a hard time trusting and opening up—the person who wins a Scorpio moon’s confidence will be rewarded with eternal loyalty.

Sagittarius Moon: Needs adventure, conquests, wisdom, variety. Attracted to worldly and open-minded people, loves to travel and have new experiences, meet people of all walks. Life should feel like a constant carnival and celebration—bores easily.

Capricorn Moon: Needs a long-term legacy and to feel like they’re creating something, needs firm boundaries and ambition. Craves solitude and time to recharge—can be depressive or melancholy at times. Can be emotionally distant.

Aquarius Moon: Needs friendship, collaboration, a common cause—but this rebellious moon soon also craves a strong sense of individuality and subverting the powers that be. Can lapse into people pleasing at times, they need lots of freedom and autonomy!

Pisces Moon: Needs fantasy, compassion, escape, creative outlets, security. This dreamy moon sign can be extremely hard to pin down and read…they’re not even sure how to explain or navigate their own depths. Can be powerful healers and drawn to artistic, sensual and spiritual pursuits.

Hi. My name was Sarah. Was? You heard right. You may not know me by that name, but I can tell you many do. I might know you, and you think you might know me from social medias or classes or passes in halls but the truth is that that is a lie.


Hi. My name is Transgender. What is transgender? Transgender, adjective: “Noting or relating to a person whose gender identity does not correspond to that person’s biological sex assigned at birth”. It’s the realization that I now have the word that acts as a glue for all of my questions, my musings, my thoughts floating in a void known as the internet asking “Am I broken?” and “What is wrong with me?” and giving them a rope to tether them to the ground.


Hi. My name is Dysphoria. Dysphoria. It’s a mirror that follows me, a mirror that does not require a reflection, but I still see myself in it in the forefront of my mind. I can see it, even feel it - it whispers in my ear, a little reminder almost like an alarm that goes off the moment I feel comfortable in my own skin. It says “Wow, you’re hardly passing today!” and “That shirt can clearly show your chest!” and YOUR FACE IS TOO FAT AND YOUR WAIST IS TOO CURVY AND YOUR VOICE IS TOO HIGH, AND, AND, AND -


Hi. My name is Chest Binder. A binder is one of the only reasons I feel comfortable most days, which I strange because this constricting tank top is one of the most uncomfortable things I’ve ever worn in my life. Wear it too long, ribs can bruise, even break - too little and you feel like you need ten more layers just to hide the visual that yes, my body doesn’t match my name and pronouns. It can be so dangerous just to squish too pieces of fat to your body for safely as high as eight hours a day - sometimes 12 on a bad day - just to come home, rip off the proverbial Band-Aid and stare at yourself in that aforementioned mind mirror and wonder, “Did anyone notice today on the street? Did they care?”.


Hi. My name is Pronouns. Let’s take a second away from this one actually - did you know the gender binary doesn’t exist? The gender binary is a system that says yes, this part is equal to that sex is equal to that gender is equal to those toys and those clothes and that appearance and this and that and this and - yes. It gets confusing unless you live by it and identify by it since the day you were born. But pronouns are one of those categories. Me? I use he/him and they/them. It’s okay to get tripped up, as long as you are actively trying to use them but the moment you just stop caring is a punch to the stomach that bruises and never heals cause it says, “You know what? Your comfort and preferred part of the binary that I live by as well is an inconvenience to me.” And of course, there is outside the binary and around the binary and under the binary - but I won’t get into that. This isn’t a Psych lesson.


Hi. My name is Bathrooms and HB2. Hi. My name is Top Surgery. Hi. My name is Testosterone. Hi. My name is Crying and Packing and Expensive As Hell and Being Told I Am Nothing and I’m Really Fucking Scared Of Bigots.


But those aren’t my names. That’s my life. Hi. My name is Alexander. Let me reintroduce myself.

—  An essay/prose that I decided to write.
The Lovers Cloud

 The night is still young and Shawn is laying on the bed. His head is propped up on the pillow with his arm laying behind it. His chest rises up slowly and evenly while he stares up at the ceiling. A week before he starts he North American Leg of Tour. This is the only time I have left with him before he returns to Pickering. A day that’s all I get with him until he comes back in August for my birthday and his. 

 I stare at my reflection in the foggy mirror after Shawn took a long hot shower. My hair is in a Dutch braid which reaches my mid back. The shirt that rests on my body looks like a dress compared to an actual shirt. My fingers start to undo the braid while I stare at myself in the mirror. A light red matte lipstick is added to my lips. I should never be around him when I need him the most. When I’m around him all I get is wild thoughts. 

 Nothing helps pretending to be angry or avoiding his gentle gestures when he comes back from tour. He’s irresistible he knows it and I know it. Shawn loves to see the affect he has on me every time he returns from tour. But I love the affect I have on him also. While his eyes roam my body as if it was the last time we would see each other. The ways his pupils dilate and his lips emit small pants of air. The walk to the room is short causing my nervous to heighten. 

The cold breeze from the open window causes my nipples to become erect. Shawn has his eyes closed his fingers play with the hem of his shorts. I’ve never been one to be sexy or be seductive, but with Shawn my shyness turns him on. I stand at the foot of the bed looking at Shawn as I nudge his foot with my fingers. He looks up quickly before casting his eyes back to the ceiling. His eyes close momentarily before he opens them once again in a slow motion. I watch carefully as I nudge him again hoping to gain a fraction of his attention like the ceiling is. 

 I stare up at the ceiling to see what is fascinating about it. A small gasp escapes my now parted lips as I see a mirror mounted to the ceiling. The first thing that comes to mind is fifty shades of grey. A small laugh is heard from Shawn causing my eyes to look down at him again. I tilt my head in confusion before my eyes drift back to the ceiling. 

 "Wondering how that got there?“ His raspy voice asks which is the sound I hope is only reserved to me. I nod before kneeling in between his parted legs on the bed. Shawn leans up on his elbows to watch my every movement as my eyes flickering between him and the mirror. The shirt I’m currently wearing rides up my thighs giving Shawn a perfect view of my black lace panties. The thought of me trying to seduce Shawn in any way has completely escaped my mind. Small creaks are heard from the bed moving near, but I don’t pay no mind to it all. 

The mirror portrays something more then innocence. Memories flashback when Shawn’s European tour kicked off. He bought the mirror to relive the passionate, yet heated moment in front of the mirror in his Amsterdam hotel bathroom. It was the second day for the shooting of “There’s nothing holding me back.” A smile makes its way onto my face as I look back at the memory 

 ************ 

 The hot shower steamed the whole bathroom making it hard for me to see. The lights which illuminated the room made it worse to see and I ended up missing my footing. 

 "Oh” I let out a small squeal as I felt strong arms wrap around my bare waist. Shawn’s face appeared as the steam started to disperse with the open bathroom door. His hand tilted me in a standing position before reaching over me and clearing the mirror. The muscles in his biceps flexed under his shirt with his rapid movements. Sweat was dripping down Shawn’s face indicating he did a hard work out with Andrew and Geoff. 

 His hair fell flat against his forehead losing his fluffy curls. My hand instinctively grab his hair trying to make it curl again, but finding it useless. A low whine escapes my lips as I let go of his sweaty hair. A low growl is heard from Shawn’s parted lips as I let out another low whine. 

 "What’s wrong?“ He asks his hands tightening their hold on my bare waist. Shawn’s eyes are glued to my breasts which move up and down with each breath I inhale and exhale. 

 "Hmm…. There’s nothing there to….” my sentence trails off as I see him looking down at me with lustful eyes. My breath catches in my throats when Shawn lifts me and sets me down on the cold counter. 

 "Ohh" a gasp and a moan leave my lips as I get the sensation of the cold granite top connecting with my heated core. The new sensations cause Shawn to emit another growl before capturing his lips with mine. Our lips move rhythmically together and my legs wrap themselves around his waist pulling him in closer to my bare body. He shudders with the sudden closeness as his bulge touches my inner thigh. Goosebumps rise all over my body, Shawn takes notice and smirks into the kiss. 

 "Need to feel your skin on my m-mine" I tell him as his lips start to leave open mouth kisses down to my neck. My fingers grab the hem of his shirt before letting my fingers trace his abs. Shawn’s body is quick to react to my pleads and takes off his shirt in a hurry. His pants and his boxers are the next thing to go. I stare head to toe memorizing his body just like it was the first time. It’s in these rare occasions that I stare even though I know his body in and out. I can’t help it….. 

 "Are you going to keep staring or actually do something?“ Shawn asks his voice barley above a whisper. His hands pull me close once again which allows his member to tease my entrance. Without another word Shawn flips me over so I’m facing the mirror. My breath grows shallow as my bare stomach touches the cold granite top. His fingers trace down my spine causing more shivers to arise. His hand makes it to the curve of my bum before sending a gentle smack making my arouse grow. The mirror cleared up a bit giving me a perfect view of Shawn. His hands gripped my shoulders hard before moving his hand to my throat. In one swift movement Shawn pulled me back his hand still around my throat putting light pressure on it as his breath fans over my ear. He squeezes my throat a bit before biting down on my earlobe. My fingers wrap themselves around his wrist. 

 "Wouldn’t you want to know how you look like while I thrust into you gently or roughly. Huh? The way your eyebrows scrunch together when I hit your g-spot. Or the way your lips shape into a perfect ‘o’ when you come down from your high. The way those fingers grip onto the bed sheets on the first thrust. So tell me baby, do you want to see what I see every time I make you mine over and over again?” Shawn whispers roughly into my ear with a raspy voice. Our gazes stare at one another through the mirror. His eyes never leaving mine as he let’s go of my throat again. I stay close to his chest moving slightly to look up at him. 

 "S-Shawn I-I a I need a …..“ the words don’t come out as I see Shawn’s eyes darken with lust. 

 "What do you need darling?” Shawn uses the word that has me at his mercy. I won’t be getting gentle Shawn in anyway. His eyes never leave my eyes as I try to breathe in and out. 

 "K-kiss" the next thing I feel is Shawn’s lips smashing onto mine. He licks my bottom lips to gain entrance, but me being a tease I decide to keep denying him access. A growl is heard before Shawn grabs a hold of my throat again and squeezes a little harder than normal. I gasp out which allows Shawn’s tongue to enter my mouth. In an instant he pulls away leaving me whimpering with the loss of his plump lips. His hands push me back flat against the granite top and giving me a gentle kiss. 

 "Mirror! Look at the mirror" Shawn growls out as I waiting in anticipation while staring down at the granite top. My eye lift up to watch his movements. 

 "So wet….. All for me" Shawn whispers before aligning his erect member to my entrance. “Sh-Shawn! Do something!” I scream out as I see he is taking his damn time. A smack is felt as my body pushes forward away from his hands. The pain to much to bare, this is punishment. 

 "Darling you know how I don’t like to be rushed-aww" Shawn’s smacks my bum again harder then the last one. “Don’t you?” I nod my head in quick motion as I watch his piercing brown eyes through the mirror. 

 "A nod isn’t helping your case" Shawn says before another smack is left side on my bum. 

 "Yes" I whimper out as he massages my bum. Shawn’s tip is at my entrance and he enters slowly in which I tense with the new sensation. 

 "Y/N, baby, you need to relax….“ Shawn says while caressing my side. 

 "I-I can’t…. I-I’m trying too” I whimper back an answer. He pushes all the way not taking any of my protests into consideration. His thrusts are slow as he watches us through the mirror. The fog starts to cover the mirror once again. Shawn’s hand reaches out towards the mirror to clear it up and he stops thrusting inside of me. My face becomes visible once again and just like Shawn said ‘The way your eyebrows scrunch together,’ the scene take any breath away as I watch Shawn through the mirror eyebrows furrowed into concentration. I involuntary clench around him arising a deep moan within his throat.

 He stays still without moving and I’m losing all my patience. My hips move forward causing him to awake from his daze. I move back on to his erect member. Swirling my hips in a circle motion and fucking myself on his erect member. A low main escapes my parted lips as I gaze at Shawn’s blurry form through he mirror. His eyes are closed a hand runs through his hair over and over again. Shawn’s eyebrows furrow together and he connects both his hands behind his head. My movements still as I try and catch my breath from looking at the sight. 

 His eyes open slowly looking at me and the place we’re we connect as one. Shawn moves his hips slowly before increasing his pace. I try my best to keep my eyes on the mirror, but fail miserably as the pressure building in my abdomen is rising. Shawn’s breaths turn to breathy pants as his thrusts start to get sloppy. Suddenly my head is being pulled back by Shawn’s hand wrapped around my hair. He left sloppy kisses along my jaw as he stopped thrusting inside my body aching for a release. 

 "I want you to look! I said look at the mirror Y/N!“ Shawn growled out as he gripped my chin to look at the now foggy mirror. My eyes are trained on the mirror waiting for Shawn to begin thrusting again. 

“Keep your eyes on the mirror. Don’t blink and don’t look down for any reason, you got that? I want you- No, I need you to see what I see every time we make love, angry sex, goodbye sex, late night sex and the list goes on Y/N…. the way I see you in complete and utter bliss as you come down from your high. Eyes barley open enough to keep them trained on me. Sweat running down the valley of your breasts. Hair fanned out, when we’re on the bed, your chest rising at a rapid and slowly going back to normal once your orgasm is done. Need to see you watch yourself, can you do that for me Darling?” I only nod and Shawn begins to thrust again. 

 "Shawn! I-I’m c-cl-“ the sentence is never finished as a load moan makes it way through my parted lips. My eyes want to close so badly, but I can’t as I watch Shawn come to his own high. I clench around around over and over again from the overstimulation. 

 "Fuck!” A loud moan is heard and I train my eyes on the mirror again. Sweat runs down his forehead and his hands tighten their hold on my waist. Moans keep coming from Shawn and he wants to silence them, yet he can’t seem to find a way to. A piercing pain is felt in my right shoulder, for Shawn is biting down as he rides out his orgasm. He soon slumps against my now sweaty body catching his breath as best as he can. 

 "You saw it right? What I see?“ Shawn whispers out his voice raspy and groggy. I giggle at his question as I simply nod looking at him through the cleared up mirror. Shawn removes himself from inside me grabbing a towel on the rack. His arms turn me around and lift me on the granite top. I watch him as he cleans me up and himself as we are surrounded by a comfortable silence. Shawn stands between my legs pulling me close to him. 

 "I love you Shawn” I tell him nerves are heard within my voice. It doesn’t matter how many time we’ve exchanged this three words which hold so much emotion I still get nervous every time I tell Shawn. 

 "I love you, Y/N” Shawn whispers back placing a gentle kiss on my forehead. We stay like this for sometime before retiring back to the the hotel bedroom. *************** 

 "Y/N? Baby?Where did you go?“ Shawn directly in front of me a worried look on his face. His arms gently cup my face as he looks for any sign of discomfort. I blink a few times pulling myself out of the daze. Shawn’s legs are tucked under him giving him a child’s like innocence. Almost. A smirk makes way into Shawn’s face as he looks up at the mirror again. 

 "Pretty right? Thought we could keep reliving the memory from Amsterdam.” Shawn says pulling and siting back down on the bed with his legs crossed. 

 "If you think this mirror will make anything happen tonight your so dead wrong Mendes" I tell him trying to keep a confident voice, but it shakes at the end. “Is that so Darling?” Shawn says leaning on his elbows once again. I lift up Shawn’s shirt which leaves my chest bare and in plain sight along with my black lace panties. I maneuver myself so I’m sitting on his lap. Shawn’s breath hitches a he stares at my breasts licking his lips as his eyes land on my face. 

 "Thought you said 'if you think this mirror will make anything happen tonight your so dead wrong’ “ Shawn mimics my voice and adds a high pitch to add dramatic effect. Arms in circle my waist pulling me closer into his bare chest. I humm as my arms link themselves behind his neck. 

 "The mirror is an added bonus, but I already had something planned for tonight” I tell him as I kiss his jaw over and over again. 

 "I like the way you think baby" Shawn whispers before capturing my lips with his. The sparks fly as I tangle my fingers into his fluffy hair. Tugging at the roots which make Shawn moan out once in a while. His lips pull apart from mine as he trials kisses down my neck. Shawn’s breath feathers above my collar bone lips barely touching my skin. Soon enough his lips attach to my collarbone as he shapes them into a circle and starts to suck. I can feel the blood rising to the area where Shawn’s lips are attached. Whimpers leave my mouth as Shawn bites the area and licks the freshly made hickey. 

 "Shawn" his name comes in short breaths as his fingers trail down to the hem of my panties. He looks up with a teasing smile and resumes his journey to slide his fingers under the lace fabric. His makes contact with my bundle of nerves sending a burning sensation to arise in my abdomen. My hands grip onto his shoulders as he roughly draws figure eights on my clit. Shawn’s lips connect with mine in a slow and passionate kiss. Whimpers leave my mouth as Shawn removes his fingers and trails to my entrance. His two fingers start to thrust in me at a steady pace. One of his hands rocks my hips against his fingers. I rest my head on Shawn’s shoulders as he adds a third finger. 

 "Your doing so great, baby" Shawn whispers into my ear as I rock myself on his fingers. His head looks up which also causes me to look up also. His eyes are trained on the mirror as he watches my movements halt. 

 "Keep moving Y/N" Shawn demands and I do as he says. And then stop again Shawn lifts me up before throwing me on the bed. The bed creaks at the sudden movement. Shawn gazed down on me with darkened eyes as he removes his fingers. He raises them up to his lips as he sucks them clean a hum coming from his mouth. I watch as he finishes sucking his fingers slowly opening his eyes. My chest rises at a rapid pace. His hands make there way around my neck pulling me in closer to him. 

Our lips barely brushing against each other causing a crave for his plump and soft pink lips against my own. Shawn’s eyes bore into mine without inching his lips closer to mine. My hand makes itself its way around his neck pulling him closer so we can indulge in a much needed kiss. Our lips move in sync as he pulls me completely onto his lap. He wraps my legs around his torso as his hands lower themselves on my body. He lifts me up turning us slowly as we still indulge in a heated kiss. Shawn lays us down gently before pulling away from our now swollen lips. His hands reach the hem of my panties pulling them down mid thigh as he blows cold air on my heated core. I shudder in reaction to the air clenching my hands onto the bedsheets. 

 "So beautiful and all for me" Shawn mumbles as he continues he torturous journey pulling my panties down my legs. Once they are removed Shawn trails open mouth kisses up my legs switching between each kiss. 

 I was in the bed while Shawn lay on top of me. He mumbled something as his face was on breasts. I felt his lips pucker up then he kissed one breast before moving to the other. I found it weird always. I nudged Shawn’s face away from chest. He wouldn’t budge and continued peppering kisses. 

 "Shawn. Baby. Shawn!!“ I tell him nudging his shoulder over and over again. He pulls away his face red and his breathing ragged. 

 "What? I in the middle of something” he said as he lay his head back down but was still able to see me. 

 "Baby why do you always kiss each breast. Or each hand" I ask as my fingers run through his fluffy hair. He hums in response before looking up at me. 

 "Can’t have one side of your body thinking I don’t love them because I don’t show them the same affection as the other part" he says placing a kiss on my lips. 

 "You are an idiot Mendes" I say in between giggles as I place a kiss on his lips. “True but at least I’m yours right? Your idiot” Shawn says before resting his head on my chest once again. 

 I snap out of my daze as I feel Shawn’s lips sucking on my bundle of nerves. My hands instinctively go to his hair tugging on it and before I know it Shawn’s lips are removed. 

 "Had to get a taste" he says before removing his shorts and boxers in one swift movement. He kneels in between my parted legs resting one of them on top of his shoulder. 

 "N-no condom?“ I ask looking at his erect member and then his face. He looked at me then the dresser moving towards it. I catch his wrist as he reaches the top of the dresser. I give a nod before releasing his hand. Shawn settles himself between my legs again. The only other time we’ve went bare was in Amsterdam in the hotel bathroom. Shawn looks at me once again and kisses my lips as he pushes into me slowly. I grab his hand which is near my head interlacing our fingers together. I squeeze his hand and Shawn starts thrusting into me. 

I gasp at the sensation reaching anywhere on the bed to get a good grip on something. Shawn groans above me as his eyes stay locked on the area in which we connect as one. His eyes go dark and he bites his lip hard as his eyes trail up my body. They land on my breasts which move with every deep thrust he makes. Strings on moans live my lips as I feel Shawn lower my leg towards the mattress. In once swift movement I’m on top of Shawn as he lays down. I let out a small squeal at the change of position. 

Shawn’s fingers dig into my skin as he lifts me up and slams me down on his erect member. My hands rest in his chest as I raise myself up and start to bounce on him. He removes his hands running them down his face. Sweat starts running down his chest as he looks up at me giving me a lazy smile. I smile back closing the space between us and kissing his swollen lips. Shawn lays me down on top him holding me down with his hand around my neck giving it a small gentle squeeze. His hips jerk upwards in fast pace as I clutch onto the mattress. 

“Uh ah oh S-Shawn” I moan out as he hugs me closer into him his pace becoming sloppy and slow. A quick change of position again and I’m underneath him clutching onto him for dear life. My orgasm a few thrusts away as I wrap my quivering legs around his waist. Shawn picks up his brutal pace again although it’s sloppy, yet still deep. He groans into my neck biting down on it as I clench around him. 

 "Let go… I know you want to Y/N. just let go princess” Shawn whispers into my ear. I nod in response unable to form words as my orgasm reaches its peak. 

“Ahhh. Shawn” his name leaves my lips repeatedly like a pray of some sort. Shawn’s close his heart beat is beating rapidly and his legs are starting to give out on him. 

 "Baby- fuck Y/N" Shawn let’s go my name leaving his lips in a small chant like prayer. I bite in his shoulder as I feel him release into me. As soon as he rides out our highs he leaves kiss on my shoulder. Shawn looks up at me opening his mouth, but I beat him to it. 

 "Pill" is all I say as Shawn relaxes once again removing himself from me. He snuggles into my side resting his head on my chest. He breathing starts to even out a bit. 

 "Not that I don’t want have kids with you. Like the song says “first comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby in the baby carriage” I want to do it right, because your special and the love of my life Y/N" Shawn tells me pulling me in closer to his body. I smile as I kiss his forehead looking forward to the future with Shawn. He mutters a whispered goodnight snuggling in closer to me. 

 "Goodnight baby" I whispers back running my hands through his hair as sleep slowly consumes me. 

🔮A Huge Tarot Master-Post🔮

Hello~ I figured I’d make my first master-post about Tarot! This is my interpretation, so I don’t ask that you just go by my word. It’s your path! I’m just here to try to help.

This will be VERY in-depth. So I apologize in advance for the lengthy post, but I hope it will help. 


What is “Tarot”?

Personally for myself I see Tarot as a tool. I use it to help myself and others with some guidance with their lives; however, when it comes to Tarot, don’t let it rule over your decisions in your life. It is a tool but that does not mean that you should only go by what it says.

Types of Readings

There are two types of readings when it comes to Tarot: Question readings and Open Readings.

Question Readings

Just as the title says Tarot involves answering questions. Yes or No questions aren’t meant to be answered by Tarot. When it comes to Yes or No questions pendulums are used with their corresponding charts. Like I stated before, you shouldn’t use Tarot to make decisions but to guide you to help you make the decision yourself. The way a question is stated is important for Tarot readers. Here’s a few tips on what you should look out for:

🔮 Keeping your options open: If you already have an answer for your question, then you’re not really letting yourself allow the cards to guide your decision.  Asking how you could encourage your mother-in-law to move out, as opposed to asking how you can get along better with her, is narrowing the scope of the true question by answering it before you even get started.

🔮 Details: Your question should be focused, but not overly detailed. Rather than looking at one particular aspect of a problem, find a way to look more broadly at it. For example, rather than asking how you can make your home life less chaotic, ask how you can better balance work schedules and school schedules. That is a focused question. But do not go so far as to ask how you can coordinate baseball, soccer and karate schedules and still have family time – that’s too detailed. Only include the minimum level of detail needed in order to express what you want to learn from the cards.

🔮 Focus on Yourself: If the reading is for yourself, make sure your question focuses on you rather than on someone else who you think may be the root of your problem. If you’re wanting to help someone, for example, ask about what you can do to help them.

🔮 Stay Neutral: Basically be unbiased. Don’t come off with the notion that your POV is the “right” one. Asking why you’re always the one getting yelled at between you and your parent(s) isn’t neutral; instead, ask how you can prevent future arguments with your parent(s). That’s neutral!

🔮 Be Positive: When it comes to Tarot, and anything really, you’ll want to always try to be positive. Instead of asking why a specific event didn’t happen, ask about what you can do to make that event happen. Positivity is always great!

Open Readings

These are also known as “General” readings. They address the larger aspects of life rather than a question or a specific area. I’ve found that Past, Present, Future readings are very popular since it talks about people’s lives. They’re always eager to see if the cards can truly tell about their life! You can also direct the General readings towards a basic “genre”. Career, Health, Finances, Love, etc.


The Tarot Deck

There are many varieties of Tarot decks, and there is no standard number of cards across all decks. While the types of cards, the suits and their meanings are the same, the illustrations vary greatly. Decks are based on various themes such as nature, animals, fantasy, dragons, etc.

When it comes to finding a deck of your own, don’t just choose one based on the design. Focus on the connection between you and your future tool, your future guide. I have the Tarot Draconis Deck that called to me. It’s a beautiful dragon based deck that has connected with me. The bond we have today is inseparable!

I say “bond” because each deck has it’s own personality. That’s why Tarot readers do interview “spreads” to help them get to know their decks a bit better. I’ll explain spreads more thoroughly later on in this post. When it comes to their personalities, some decks are blunt, some are meant for giving other people readings and others could be laid back.

The Major and Minor Arcana

When you look through a Tarot Deck, there will be two different sets of cards: Major Arcana and Minor Arcana. Let’s look at the Minor Arcana first. You’ll find that like regular playing cards there are four suits; however, instead of hearts, spades, diamonds, and clubs there are Wands, Pentacles (Circles), Cups (Chalices), and Swords. Each of these represents an element.

Each suit has meaning regarding a specific approach to life. The cards within these suits are numbered one through 10 and also include the court cards – the king, queen, knight and page (knave). The Minor Arcana cards represent the more minor, practical daily ups and downs in life.

The Major Arcana are not associated with the suits. They include the picture cards that represent principles, concepts and ideals. They are numbered one through 21, with the 22nd card (the “Fool”) marked as zero. The Major Arcana cards represent strong, long-term energy or big events in some area of life.

Minor Arcana and the Four Suits

As I stated before, each of the Suits represents an element. Let’s talk about each one and break down what they mean, as well as the cards within them. Then we’ll move on to the Major Arcana!

When it comes to the different cards, there are negatives and positives. When a card is upside-down, the term being “reversed”, then it represents negative attributes of that card. When it’s upright then it represents positive attributes.

For myself, I don’t read reverse cards. I base it on my intuition. I’ll explain how your intuition is used with tarot later on in this post.


Suit of Pentacles

🌱Also known as Coins, Disks, or Circles.

🌱Represents the element Earth.

🌱Covers material aspects of life including work, business, trade, property, money and other material possessions.

🌱 Pentacles deal with the physical or external level of consciousness and thus mirror the outer situations of your health, finances, work, and creativity. They have to do with what we make of our outer surroundings – how we create it, shape it, transform it and grow it.

🌱 On a more esoteric level, Pentacles are associated with the ego, self-esteem and self-image.

🌱 The positive aspects of the Suit of Pentacles include manifestation, realization, proof and prosperity.

🌱 The negative aspects of the Suit of Pentacles (i.e. when the Pentacles cards appear reversed) include being possessive, greedy and overly materialistic, over-indulging and not exercising, not effectively managing one’s finances, and being overly focused on career to the detriment of other life priorities.

Often what is required to counteract these negative aspects is a return to nature to ground oneself and rediscover what is truly important. In addition, there may be blockages in being able to manifest ideas and plans resulting in a lack of success. Better goal-setting and planning is required.

🌱 When referring to timing in a Tarot reading, the Suit of Pentacles traditionally represents Winter or years.

🌱 In a deck of playing cards, Pentacles corresponds to Diamonds.

Suit of Swords

🌫️ Represents the element Air.

🌫️ Associated with action, change, force, power, oppression, ambition, courage and conflict.

🌫️ Action can be both constructive and/or destructive, sometimes resulting in violence.  This suit can also mean hatred, battle, and enemies, and of all the suits, this one is considered to be the most powerful and dangerous. 

🌫️ The Suit of Swords deals with the mental level of consciousness that is centred around the mind and the intellect. Swords mirror the quality of mind present in your thoughts, attitudes, and beliefs.

🌫️ Swords themselves are double-edged and in this way the Suit of Swords symbolises the fine balance between intellect and power and how these two elements can be used for good or evil. As such, the Swords must be balanced by spirit (Wands) and feeling (Cups).

🌫️ The negative aspects of the Suit of Swords (i.e. when the Swords cards appear reversed) include anger, guilt, harsh judgement, a lack of compassion and verbal and mental abuse.

🌫️ When referring to timing in a Tarot reading, the Suit of Swords traditionally represents Autumn (Fall), or months.

🔮 - If a Tarot reading is predominantly made up of the Minor Arcana Tarot cards, you are dealing with day-to-day issues which will not necessarily having a lasting influence on your life. 

These issues are passing through, presenting you with an opportunity to learn from these experiences (look to any Major Arcana cards to identify and understand these lessons and how they may impact your life in the long-term).


Major Arcana

The Major Arcana Tarot cards (also known as the trump cards) form the foundation of the Tarot deck and consists of twenty-one numbered cards and one unnumbered card (the Fool).

They represent a path to spiritual self-awareness and depict the various stages we encounter as we search for greater meaning and understanding. In this way, they hold deeply meaningful lessons.

The Major Arcana Tarot card meanings illustrate the structure of human consciousness and, as such, hold the keys to life lessons passed down through the ages.

Tarot Spreads

Now that we’ve talked about the Minor and Major Arcanas, let’s talk about Tarot spreads! Before any Tarot reader does a reading, they shuffle their cards. This allows them to transfer their energy into the deck.

Once the cards are shuffled and the deck has been cut, the reader lays out the cards in a pattern called the spread. Each position in the spread has a meaning, and there are many different types of spreads, ranging from those that incorporate a single card to spreads that include all 78 cards of the deck. Which spread is used is up to the reader and the specific type of question or reading. Some spreads focus more on a specific type of information. For example, one spread might focus more on emotional matters, while another might bring in more information about the influences of others. One of the most common spreads is the Celtic Cross.

Interpreting the Spread:

Once the cards are laid out, their meanings are interpreted based on their positions and their neighboring cards. Let’s look at the Celtic Cross spread:

  1. Begin by looking at the Circle/Cross section. The cards in this position represent what is happening in your life at the time of the reading.
  2. Next, look at the first six cards in pairs. These cards paint a picture of your immediate situation. The cards in position 1 (the central issue) and position 2 (the secondary issue that can either be opposing or reinforcing) will identify the central theme of the reading. The cards in position 3 (the root cause that can be an unconscious influence or deeper meaning) and position 5 (your attitudes and beliefs, a conscious influence, your goal or an alternate future) represent things that are going on within you at different levels. And, the cards in position 4 (your past, a receding influence or something that has been resolved) and position 6 (the future or an approaching influence or unresolved factor) represent how people and events are flowing through your life.
  3. Next, look at the Staff section of the spread, again considering cards in pairs. Looking at the cards in position 7 (as you are, as you could be, as you present yourself and as you see yourself) and position 8 (your outside environment, someone else’s point of view and you as others see you) tells you about your relationship with your environment.
  4. Finally, look at the card in position 10 (the outcome-overall, your inner state, your actions or effects) to see the projected outcome.

Ask yourself how you feel about the projected outcome. What does it say to you?

  1. Go back and review the cards that led up to that outcome, and see if there is a card that stands out as they key to that outcome. Then, look back at card 5 to see if the projected outcome is also shown as an alternate outcome there. Look at the card representing the near future in position 6 to see if it supports or contributes to the projected outcome. Finally, look at the card in position 9 (guidance, key factors, hopes and fears or overlooked factors) to see there is any relevance there.

This is one of many different spreads. You can even make your own spreads! Ultimately, start small and learn as you go. Spreads are very easy once you get the hang of it.


Intuition

Last but certainly not least, we’re going to talk about Intuition!

What is intuition?  A thing that one knows or considers likely from instinctive feeling rather than conscious reasoning.

When it comes to Tarot cards, and giving out readings or doing one for yourself, intuition is key. Witchcraft in general involves intuition 9 times out of 10! For example, when I do my readings for people, I don’t just go by what the cards mean. I trust my intuition about what it means, with my gut feeling. If I feel it’s something to do with family, I go with it. If it has something to do with an important event coming up in the future, I trust it.

You may not get it down right away, and that’s perfectly okay! It’ll take some time to get it down pat. Just don’t forget to listen to your gut!


There you go! I hope this Master Post helps you guys learn a little more about Tarot. I’ll be posting another one later for in-depth descriptions of all the cards!

Brightest blessings!

Half-Blood Princess (Part 3): This Time Around

Characters: Dean Winchester x Sister!Reader, Sam Winchester x Sister!Reader, Hannah (Twin Sister)

Length: 1150+ words

TW: Nothing of any sort! Just all the fluff~

A/N: Someone asked about writing a Part 3, and I seriously wasn’t going to write one, but this just came out of nowhere, and now I just had to write it. I hope this was somewhat believable, and true to character! I hope this gives you some comfort after Angst Appreciation Day yesterday! Feedback is encouraged!

Part 1     Part 2     Part 3


It was a few days later, and Y/N wasn’t sure what to expect when Dean made the promise. Everyone seemed so sure they were going to start treating her differently, but she wasn’t sure how they could change so easily like that. She decided early on that she would give her siblings another chance. It takes two to make a relationship so she would try her best to form a bond with them, and see how it goes. Though, she was pretty wary of them still, she wanted to give them another chance. 

“Hey, kiddo,” Dean greeted, seeing her already in the kitchen making breakfast. “Need any help?”

She was about to shake her head when she paused. “Sure. Wanna help me make the eggs?” She was already halfway in making the pancakes, a pile already stacked beside her. 

“’Kay.” He grabbed another pan from the cabinet, and the carton of eggs along with the bacon. “What’s eggs without bacon, right?” he joked with a wink.

She laughed at his antics, shaking his head. “If you want to get high cholesterol, and die early- then knock yourself out.”

“Sounds like someone’s been spending way too much time with Sam.”

Y/N scoffed, but it came out more like a snort causing her to slap her hands to her lips in embarrassment. Dean looked at her for a millisecond before an evil grin formed on his face, reminding her of the Grinch. 

“Did you just snort?”

“Nope. Didn’t happen.”

“Yes, it did!” Dean threw his head back in laughter before bumping her hips with his. “Don’t worry, I won’t tell. Your secret is safe with me.”

“What secret?” Y/N said, playing dumb.

OK, so this afternoon I was in voice lesson, just blasting ‘Sebben Crudele’ like a pro to revise italian pronunciation and overall style and all of a sudden the room got super chilly. I got a shiver down my back. My teacher’s cats just suddenly woke from their nap and looked up, ears perked, to somewhere behind my back. Mind you, there was a mirror in front of me and I couldn’t see anyone behind me, then I FELT A FREAKING FINGER RUN OVER MY BACK.

So I kind of panicked, messed up my singing, my teacher stopped me, began to correct me, and I heard something shuffling in the corner, so I turned around. Still nothing. Teacher saw me turning around to look at the corner so he went “What are you looking at?” and I just shook my head and looked ahead again. He then calmly looked at the corner and went “Sácate a la chingada, pinche cabrón!” (Losely translated= Go fuck yourself, son of a bitch)

I kid you not, the room got cozy again immediately after he did that and he continued the lesson like he hadn’t just cussed a ghost outta the room.

Weiss Character Trailer - 'Path to Isolation' Song Lyrics

It Starts
With the unexpected loss
Of something dear

The Warmth
That comforted and cradled
Just disappears

And in its place
there’s nothing
Just an endless, empty hole

The light that showed the way is gone
And darkness takes control

Bitterness and anger
Are quick to fill the void
The path to isolation
Is made, from the dreams that they destroyed

The Cold
seems to grow in my soul
It’s consuming me

Confused
Am I losing myself in the storm

Growing jaded
Being pushed, being pulled
I’m unraveling

Can’t find my self when I’m constantly pushed to conform

Enemies surround me but the worst appear as friends
Liars and pretenders
Only seek to reach their ends

Everything is breaking
Right before my eyes
Looking in the Mirror
I see someone that I don’t recognize

Mirror what’s this thing I see
Who is staring back at me
A stranger to my heart has filled my mind

Mirror,
help me,
Who
Am
I

Book Of Mormon Theory:

So Kevin Price is constantly going on and on about how he’s gonna do “something incredible”. In fact, his exact words are:

“Something incredible
I’ll do something incredible!
I want to be the Mormon
That changed all of mankind
I’m something I’ve foreseen
Now that I’m nineteen
I’ll do something incredible
That blows God’s freaking mind!”

And the only time those lyrics are mirrored are when Kevin is in the hospital and the maggots-in-my-scrotum guy who’s name i do not know and am too lazy to search up says:

“Something incredible
You’ve done something incredible!
I have never seen a rectal blockage
Of this kind
I’ve seen patients in the past
With rodents or bottles in their ass
But this is something incredible
That blows my fucking mind!”

Now, it mirrors Kevin’s original lyrics (more or less), but translates Kevin talking about himself to scrotum-guy taking about Kevin. However, the only words that don’t line up are “God” and “my”.

So, in conclusion: scrotum-guy is God 

libra is a great thinker, those minds have wings. they can think things in hundreds of ways, they can think what you are thinking and they can think what the person next to you is thinking, that mind can be an enchanted mirror, glossed in serenity and equality 

A Princess’s Wedding Night

I stood waiting in my new quarters. I had nothing to do by then except wait anxiously for my husband to join me. I knew what lied ahead of me that night, and I felt a light blush come across my features as I glanced at the bed.

I took the time to look around at the rich furnishings that surrounded me; anything I could do to calm my preoccupied mind. A large mahogany mirror stood opposite of me as I inspected the slip my handmaiden had placed on me as my attire for the night. It’s purpose was to allow my new husband to quickly undress me, my lady-in-waiting had informed me.

I was fidgeting with the button on my clothes when I heard a knock on the door. I stood there awkwardly for a good moment before I tentatively spoke out. I already knew who it was as there was only one person who had business with me that night.

I know Anti’s not part of this but I have to

I just thought of something.

What’s Antisepticeye’s signature line?

“His body was weak.”

And what does Anti say to Darkiplier when they meet face-to-face?

“You’re weak, just like him!” (‘Him’, referring to Jack.)

But how does Dark react to our favorite little glitch b*tch’s threats?

He’s calm. Standing totally still, looking at him and knowing any attempt to unseat him would fail.

It just hit me why.

Dark is not at all intimidated by Anti’s threats because every threat Anti has ever made involves possessing his victim mind-first so that he can wreak havoc on their body.

We know he goes after their mind first because he plays visual and auditory tricks– just like he did on Jack in the pumpkin video, deceiving him into thinking he’s hearing things. Anti was testing Jack’s mind strength one more time before actually taking him over.

If Dark really is what we saw Damien become, he has been through such emotional turmoil that his mind is unbreakable.

That mirror?

That was the first and only time Darkiplier ever broke.

No more.

Never again.

Foodies: Ice Cold Deliciousness

A/N: So this is my first Supernatural reader-insert oneshot series.  Well idk if you called it a series, you can read each part separately without getting lost so… So anyway this new series is about Lucifer trying different foods for the first time and exploring the relationship between you and Luci.  This is in first person btw because I don’t really like writing in second person.

Pairing: Nick!Lucifer x Reader

Word Count: 1031

Warnings: Well, it’s Lucifer. implied smut, mild mild smut? it does get pretty steamy, food, ice cream, bacon, embarrassment? fluff, sarcasm, Stranger Things mentioned, swearing, a bit of foreplay? Dean interrupting, crappy writing as always, message me if I missed any… 

I do not own you or any characters in Supernatural

Hey do you know any good dark fics?

Hey there - depends on what you consider a darkfic. I’m assuming you mean destiel since that’s all I read, so that’s all I can really rec.

I don’t read anything that has MCD or unhappy endings (where Dean and Cas end up apart) so I can’t rec anything like that. But below you can find some of my dark(ish) faves. Mind the tags!

In a Mirror, Darkly
(slave AU, dom/sub)
We know good people go to Heaven and bad people go to Hell, but where do the medium people go? Welcome to Limbo, a fourth plane of existence, ruled by angels and built upon the servitude of the humans enslaved to them. While on a routine salt n’ burn, the Winchester boys encounter a garrison of angels. Sam ends up being taken to Limbo; leaving it up to his brother, Dean, and the angel, Castiel to infiltrate the plane in order to rescue him.

Gravitation
(serial killer AU)
It’s been months since FBI Agent Castiel Novak found out his lover, Dean Winchester, was a serial killer using Castiel for access to the FBI investigation into his crimes. At their last meeting, Dean thought he had killed Castiel, but Castiel survived and has been hunting Dean ever since.

When Your True Destiny Is To Lead (deancasjimmy)
(endverse AU)
In 2017, Henry’s grandsons; Sam and Dean, struggle to survive in a world where Lucifer walks the Earth, demons and victims of the Croatoan virus destroy everything in their path, and angels are selfish and frightened.
It’s been eight years since the Winchesters formed Camp Salvage. Eight years of hunting, fighting and protecting those around them. Dean is tired. He’s tired of being responsible for so much. But there isn’t an end in sight. The Devil toys with the world, and it won’t be long until the Croats kill them all. Dean is done. He’s had enough of fighting losing odds. Then—they hear word of an angel. Dean puts his game face on once more, leading a team in search of answers, help, or simply retribution. What they find instead, sends them into a tailspin that can only end two ways; wholesale destruction, the final, true end of all things, or the longest of shots; they win. With some unexpected tactical advantages, maybe Dean finally stands a chance: not just to survive, but to find a reason to want to.

The Face Behind A Mirror
(ABO)
Castiel, a lone alpha wolf, would like nothing more than to be left alone in his house to die. He wants nothing to do with the outside world and doesn’t have anything to offer to anyone. Then, one early morning, a black car crashes into a tree right beside his house. The driver is rendered unconscious and doesn’t remember a thing after he wakes up. He is also an omega, but there’s something very wrong with him.

Poisk Istiny (Finding Truth)
(mafia/gangster AU)
A rival family is stealing the Patricolo Family’s Boston shipments and collecting a neat payday five hours away on the streets of Brooklyn and Manhattan. Their Don, Dean Winchester, is wary about reaching out to a long-time New York ally. The Russian Bratvas do things differently. The young Pakhan, Castiel Krushnic, is hard-nosed and violent and while violence is mainstay in any underworld family, this boss has a special flair for it. It leaves an uncomfortable taste in Don Winchester’s mouth. Encouraged by his Consigliere, Bobby Singer, he finally relents. The Pakhan is quite different from what he was expecting. Dean learns the man’s secret by accident and decides to keep it to himself. They have bigger fish to fry as they discover traitors in both of their organizations while their enemy ups the stakes for each of them. After members of each family are kidnapped, the stakes get even higher.Betrayed from within leads to exposing long held secrets and when long denied desires are unleashed it puts each of them on a path that will change their lives forever.

Red Right Hand
(serial killer AU)
It all starts with the mysterious note left on Dean’s chair.
It all ends with Dean coming to terms not only with what he’s capable of, but how much that knowledge doesn’t bother him.

It Satisfies, It Is Great
(this isn’t really dark, more super angsty)
All Castiel Novak ever wanted was someone to love him, really love him. When Sam Winchester comes into his life, that void is finally filled. He is beautiful and kind and Castiel falls for him quickly. But when Castiel meets Dean, Sam’s older brother, Castiel is forced to re-examine everything he thought he knew about life and love.This is a story about the struggle to make the right choices, a story about self-loathing and self-sacrifice. It’s a life long journey of soul searching and coming to terms with the life you have, and the life you’ve always wanted.

I haven’t read this one yet but it’s on my to-read list:

With Understanding
(kidnapping/Stockholm/Lima syndrome AU - kinda)
Winchester takes a deep breath. “I’m your soulmate.”
Castiel should be saying something reassuring, something to convince the psychopath in front of him that he can be molded and should be kept alive. He is a trained FBI agent that has been in the Behavioral Analysis Unit for nearly a year. He knows what to do when kidnapped.
Instead, “What the fuck is wrong with you?” comes out.
(Supposed serial killer Dean Winchester kidnaps his soulmate, FBI Agent Castiel Novak. What ensues is a battle of wills – one determined to be loved, and one determined to be free.)
