Even if you don’t believe in astrology, you cannot deny the powerful effect the Moon has; upon our tides, upon nature and upon the Human mind. For She lights up the night, so we in the dark may see.
As of my writing this, a New Moon has just occurred in the sign of the scales, Libra ♎︎ A New Moon marks the beginning of the lunar month, a cycle that lasts for between 29 and 30 days.
In my experience it is very beneficial to live by the rhythm of the Moon. This way we can work on our creating our future, the way we would like it to be, one month at a time. But how?
NEW MOON/ SET AN INTENTION:
Whilst the moon is lightless, crossing in front of the sun, set your goal, what do you want to have achieved in 30 days time?
Perhaps set one big goal, and several smaller ones, which may or may not be directly supporting the larger goal - just ensure you avoid spreading yourself too thin. The New Moon is the perfect time to decide to try something new for a month.
WAXING MOON/ WORK:
Now one day at a time, with your goals in mind, work towards making them a reality. Avoid expecting too much at once, and take each day as it comes!
FULL MOON/ CELEBRATION:
As this is the brightest the moon is during her cycle it is possible that one’s intentions can manifest at this time of the month, but in any case it is a point to recognise how far you have come over the last two weeks - if you have been working steadily towards your targets you will definitely notice your improvements since you began. This may also be the time in which you realise your vision, and see the potential final form your project might take! It’s a time to celebrate!
WANING MOON/ MANAGING:
As the Moon’s light begins to turn away from the earth, one’s focus shifts from building up towards the goal to maintaining the infrastructure they have already implemented. This is the time to make tweaks and ensure that the details are indeed all in place and as they should be; perform any trimming and pruning as you see fit to ensure your project’s longevity.
BLACK MOON/ CLEANSING:
Once the waning crescent disappears from the night sky, vanishing into the rays of dawn, we reach the end of our cycle. At this time we must review the past month, how did we perform, what was successful, where could we have improved? Through this process of review we can identify what held us back, and make the conscious decision to let it go, to banish it from us, so that we may enter the next cycle without baggage and doubt; cleansed and ready to take on the next month!
You may find it particularly beneficial to choose a project that is associated with the the sign of the New Moon, this month is ♎︎ Libra so subjects related to art, law, relationships and balance will naturally take focus in some way for the month. The next Full Moon will be in ♉︎ Taurus which is associated with ART, BEAUTY & NATURE ~ it really is the perfect time for Deviants to try out experimenting with a new medium, technique or subject for the month and really make use of the chance to kickstart some growth in your art form!
My third image in a series of Leyendecker studies where I replace the figures within with Sailor Moon characters. In this case I’ve added Rei and Minako, with their respective sports equipment of choice.
I’ve started creating stories in my head as I paint these things, and in this case I can’t decide if Minako has said something utterly brilliant or mind-mindbogglingly daft. Either way, Rei is giving her a not so subtle side-eye (or is perhaps looking at us, The Office style).
Is there a way (from reading a chart) to determine what someone's ideal mate may be like or how they would like them to be?
Aha sweet heart there’s sooo many intervals that go into that. I feel like as complex of humans as we are it’s so intricate knowing what it is that people desire or want a lot of the time some of the people we do fall for or desire are something entirely reminiscent of the shadow side of ourselves that we don’t even resonate with.
But astrology wise?
Your moon sign alone is the type of lover you crave on an emotional level. It’s the lover and or people you may cling too out of being reminded of the feeling of home and instinctual pleasure they bring. This is your raw and more heart felt needs and desires and you may prefer a lover with this qualities in the long term.
Moon signs aspects: go a little deeper on the little small nuances they’d prefer from their lover and qualities they might be naturally drawn to and accustomed too because they express these same emotional values.
House the moon is falling in-this shows the unconsciously desired mate. This is the mate you unknowingly cling or attach to. For example a moon in Aries wants a masculine and or direct and honest partner but if it falls in the 10th house they also find them selves unknowingly drawn and in need of more cautious and aloof/mature partners who may be dynamic and intense but have a level of reliability and a protective and ambitious aspect about them.
Venus sign alone: what brings out the romance in you-how you are in romance and also how you go about expressing your desires. The sign it’s in really explains your style and desires when an intimate relationship and the relationships you may crave.
Aspects further light up how you act in love and some nuances of how your behavioral patterns are aligned with the venus sign itself.
House that venus is in: says a lot. Like a WHOLE lot about what someone wants out of a lover. This is because venus is more of a receptive and u and I planet which means it’s not so much so focused on the “what I want” aspect than it is on the “how I’d like for us to be” the House venus is in projects venus need for the u and I in a more “what I desire and where I desire it” sort of energy. So for houses here’s what I’ll say they’ll give you a lot of insight into what they crave affection and relationship wise. A Venus in Scorpio in the 6th would crave intensity but also more than anything wants stability and consistency-someone serious about the relationship in a palpable way.
Mars: misconception. This is how we go about initiating and or expressing a desire for sex-as well as in a minor way how and what arouses us.
Aspects give future insight on how sex is expressed and how it goes about
The house it falls in goes into the way a person may crave to be sexually desired and what they desire sexually from a partner. A mars in Virgo in the 5th May be shy and nervous when it comes to it but will crave a partner who covers them with affection and makes their desires for them known. And despite their nervous energy sex with them might be intense if mars is square Pluto and so on.
8th house is about intimacy after the relationship has been defined or trust/time has passed and they take you seriously. The sign on someone’s 8th house can show what they desire for true intimacy and on a deep passionate level the type of partner they crave to bare it all too.
Aspects to this show deeper into the sex style after this point.
House placement of the ruler here gives further insight into the projection of this energy and the requirements of earning this trust and what might be a given test before they open up to you in this way.
A sag 8th house with Jupiter in the 11th will probably have to feel like you have their back and are easy to talk to in a supportive and loving way first before they show you that side of themselves. They have to know you want them but more importantly they want to feel at ease and In a way like you’re they’re friend and they’re lover.
5th house and 2nd house deal more with physical desires. So the sign on the cusp is exactly what is sounds like, someone who exudes those qualities we tend to find sexually and sensually alluring. Libra 5th house cups might find the buttocks on someone fascinating. Someone with manners and who is kind and lets them speak and treats them gently might be erotic sexually to them while someone with these qualities might turn on someone with libra on the 2nd in a physical and sensual way.
The houses the house ruler falls in for these two houses is so important because this is the 2nd layer and shows what they desire to take you “seriously” this can change a lot and if someone 2nd house or 5th house ruler touches a lot of your planets they find you deeply physically and sensually arousing in a big way.
Common aspects used constantly in the “desired mate” conversation.
In truth the house they fall in is a lot more important than the sign they fall in mainly because the sign is layer one and the house is layer two and talks more about what they may seek out in a lover rather than what turns them on individually. A sag in psyche wants to be incontrol when in love but if it falls in the 7th house they desire a compassionate and understating partner who doesn’t mind compromises.
Juno is long term love and it’s important to see what house it falls in as this will be what makes people seek out their lover. It’s the qualities we need them to have rather than want them to have. Someone with Juno in the 4th but in libra wants a charming and good looking lover but needs a lover with emotional backing and one who is tender and soft above all else and will often forgo a cutie pie if said cutie doesn’t understand them emotionally-this is soooo important to understand his difference.
Amor and Eros are gratification and adoration so the sign and house relationship here are mainly for knowing what someone craves to be truly adored and loved. The house it falls in can tell you what they crave from a lover in terms of this adoration.
Lilith and Pluto the true sex planets and sexual compatibility.
Where Pluto and Lilith fall and their houses is what someone might seek in a partner on a deeper more “I’m scared but I’m drawn to you” type of way. Something intense and unconscious. Where these planets fall can say a lot.
Someone with Pluto in the 7th crave a deep and intimate sexual union and may look for someone who is gorgeous physically as well as someone who is charming and a tad mysterious someone who isn’t overbearing but someone who has a perceptive and warm nature about them. (They’ll still be Plutonian but a more libra meets Scorpio taint)
While someone with Pluto in the 9th or Lilith in the 9th want someone who’s passionate and mischievous and a bit daring. Someone with a free yet dark edge about them.(they’ll have a sagittarian meets Scorpio flare)
Jupiter and it’s house-what mate inspires you and what qualities you look for in someone you want to admire
Neptune-what qualities you look for in someone to let your guard down with and be deeply sensitive with. Someone with the qualities of the house your Neptune falls in will be extremely magnetic and irresistible to you.
Saturn-someone you can build with and see a future with. The house your Saturn falls in will give you insight of what qualities you need this person to have.
Saturn in the 11th-someone whoes realistic yet honest and a bit of a loner. Someone who has a way of separating themselves from a crowd and being naturally confident and self assured. Someone who’s strong alone with out others. May be who you want to see a future with.
While Saturn in the 12th would crave a elusive and deeply sensitive partner. Someone who is mysterious yet complex and deep. Someone who sees through your facade and someone who isn’t afraid to express themselves to you.
Lastly 12th house/4th house cusp and rulers give insight into the qualities unconsciously sought after In others and the houses of the house ruler give insight into the types of qualities you crave expressed in a partner.
This is all I can think of for now!!! I would say sun and mercury but I would think the more feminine and generational planets play a deeper role in that unless mercury or sun are your dominate planets.
Project Smalltown (a.k.a. Stars Hollow) - Town square shops tour (1)
In the next few posts, I’ll give you a tour of Smalltown center. Today, I’m focusing on the town square shops. It’s 4 shops in total, all of them located in the same lot, next to the library and the gazebo. These will be my NPC-run stores, since they are types of stores that I don’t like to actively manage, but that I like my sims to visit.
In the pictures, you can see the first two shops: the corner store (loosely based on Doose’s market) and the florists/herbs store. As you will see, they are not very “fancy” but I wanted to keep true to the “small town” feeling, so nothing too over-the-top, etc.
Since Tumblr is acting out today I divided this post in two parts. In the next post, I’ll show you the other two stores: the antique shop and the baby store!
Imagine if all the metals, factories, man power, and organization of the military was used to empower human beings rather than prepare for their annihilation. All the fundamental necessities of life including food, water, shelter, energy, transportation, could be ubiquitously accessible to everyone on earth, with high efficiency and sustainability. The technical means of this are already here. This could usher in a new level of freedom and possibility never before experienced in history. No longer would humanity waste most of it’s effort on simply trying to survive, but rather to fully explore its previously hindered and vastly unrealized potential.
I watch a lot of documentaries. I think they are incredible tools for learning and increasing our awareness of important issues. The power of an interesting documentary is that it can open our minds to new possibilities and deepen our understanding of the world.
On this list of mind expanding documentaries you will find different viewpoints, controversial opinions and even contradictory ideas. Critical thinking is recommended. I’m not a big fan of conspiracy documentaries but I do like films that challenge consensus reality and provoke us to question the everyday ideas, opinions and practices we usually take for granted.
Watching documentaries is one of my favorite methods of self-education. If I find a documentary inspiring, I usually spend more time researching the different ideas and interesting people interviewed in the film. I hope you find these documentaries as enlightening as I did!
