animal-guide

anonymous asked:

I've been reading through a lot of animal spirits/guides stuff, and horses have been big symbols of motivation, personal drive (one site said: "A driving force, what you thrive for or carries you in life"), freedom of expression, practicality, and all of that just screamed "Shikako" at me lol. (Random thought that I wanted to share, hope you don't mind haha))

:) I’m guessing this isn’t a prompt for the fake fic titles ask box event, though I did briefly consider something like:

What You Thrive For

In order to improve Nagaoka the fawn’s battle ability, Shikako sends him to a place where ungulates have schools of magic.

Equestria will never be the same again.

Except… I don’t really know anything about My Little Pony so I can’t follow up on this.

Anyway, thanks for sharing, anon, and I hope you found this fake fic summary amusing. :D

ACNL AMIIBO BREAKDOWN

Hello everyone! 

So after updating, I was super confused about which amiibos are compatiable with the new Welcome Amiibo update and what each one can do, so here is a *hopefully helpful breakdown of each type of amiibo and how to use it in the new update!

Regular Animal Crossing Villager Amiibo Cards (Series 1-4)

  • Regular villager amiibo cards are all of the cards you get in a regular amiibo pack (series 1-4) excluding the sparkly “special” NPC card. (So not including Isabelle, Tom Nook, KK Slider, etc). These are your typical villagers (Marshal, Rosie, Fauna, Julain, etc).
  • You can scan these into your game using a new NPC, Wisp! Wisp is unlocked at random at least one day after you update your game.
  • Using Wisp in your mayor’s home, you can tap an amiibo card to the screen.
  • You CAN ask the villager to move in.
  • If you have 10 villagers, they will offer to kick someone out for you! (yay!)
  • You CANNOT ask them to visit the campground. Unfortunately, the hundreds of previous amiibo cards do not have caravans designed for  the characters and cannot utilize the new campground. 

NEW Welcome Amiibo Cards (Released December 2)

  • Nintendo is releasing 50 NEW amiibo cards in December called Welcome Amiibo! These cards are DIFFERENT from the series 1-4 cards.
  • These cards are horizontal and each villager comes with their own unique caravan!
  • You CAN invite them to visit your campground!
  • At the campground, you can purchase their exclusive content, including things not available via the Nookling stores, using meow poitns.
  • You CAN invite them to move into your town!
  • These characters include villagers from older Animal Crossing games, as well as some crossover characters with other Nintendo games, such as Legend of Zelda and Splatoon.
  • There will be special Sanrio crossover cards released, as well (EEE!)
  • You may see some promotional images of people using these cards, but they will not be on sale in the United States until December 2nd. I’m sorry, I’m unsure about the release date in other regions!

Special Non-Playable Character Amiibo Cards

  • Special NPC amiibo cards (the sparkly *special* card you receive in each amiibo pack) such as Isabelle, Tom Nook, KK Slider, etc, can also be scanned in using Wisp!
  • They CANNOT move in to your town.
  • They may offer you a special item, such as their picture.
  • You CANNOT invite them to the campground, therefore you cannot purchase their exclusive items via amiibo card + Wisp.

Special Non-Playable Character Amiibo Figures

  • So there is a HUGE difference between the NPC cards and figures. Though you can scan the cards and interact with them via wisp, having the figure will allow you to invite them to the campground and access their exclusive items and purchase them with meow points.
  • For instance, I received a Lottie amiibo card when I purchased HHD, thus I didn’t feel the obligation to purchase her amiibo figure. But if I want her to visit my campground so I can purchase her exclusive items, I need to run out and get the figure. Which I may or may not have just done.
  • They CAN be invited to your campground, where you can purchase items.
  • They CANNOT move into your town.

I hope this helps you out! There is  A LOT of new content with the update and plenty to learn. If you have any questions about the update, feel free to message me and I can try my best to help! Happy crossing!! 

Spirit Guide Spread

I developed this spread first for my own use, in an effort to let me communicate with my spirit guide when I was not able to find the peace I needed for proper meditation, and could not reach them through dream. This deck can be used to communicate with your spirit guide (or animal familiar), or to try and meet them for the first time.

1. The Head. This card represents your Spirit Guide. If you have not met them, it can hold insight into what form they might appear to you.

2. The Hand. What they hold highly. This card represents qualities or attributes your spirit guide consider of great importance at this time.

3. The Fist. What they disregard. This card represents an issue you may be paying too much mind to, or something your spirit guide wants you to ignore.

4. The Heart. What is inside you. A hidden strength your spirit guide applauds, and wants you to focus on fostering at this time. If reversed this can indicate a festering issue your spirit guide is concerned may be harming you.

5. The Heels. A last word. This card represents any last pressing messages or warnings your spirit guide may have for you.

I hope this spread assists those of you who, like me, struggle in forming spirit connections in a busy, mundane, world. If you try this spread and like it, please consider liking this post, as a vote for the #Craftaspread challenge.

Landscaping Tutorial: Awkwardly Placed Villagers

I was asked to do a tutorial on how I would landscape around villagers who plotted in either an awkward or just downright horrible place, and thankfully I had just the villager to use to do this. Hopefully this helps! As always, all information will be under the cut!

Harvest Festival Guide

Alright lovelies! It’s that time of year again to start hording up fruit, shrooms, and fishies. I don’t know about you but i prefer to start stocking up early to give me plenty of time, but since the update I remembered we may have some new players so let’s start! 

I found this very lovely and helpful guide on google. If you know who made it let me know so I can credit them because it is a huge life saver :) 

Happy Harvest Everyone!

Build a Relationship with Your Guides Tarot Spread

1: The Guide

2: What you can do to build the relationship

3: What they will do to build the relationship

4-6: Feel free to set the intention for these cards before you begin. For example, 4-6 could be the steps you should take to find an avenue of communication that works well with this guide.

Or it could be three things about your relationship with them.

Or, it could be three ways that they have reached out in the past.

I highly recommend that you use your intuition here. If the only thing that strikes you about a card is a small symbol or animal, then pay attention to that. 

I think you want to work outside the traditional tarot/oracle meanings that are available to really get some good information.

How to find your Totem Animal

Everyone has an animal, bird or fish which holds a special meaning for them. This is not necessarily a pet or even a domestic animal; it could be foreign or even mythical

1. Take a walk in the woods just before dusk. Take the time to look at the trees and plants, to inhale the scent of the woods and listen to the sounds around you. 

2. Find an old tree and sit down beneath it. Close your eyes and lay your hands flat on the soil on either side of you and take a few deep breaths. 

3. Ask the Goddess to send you your Totem animal. 

4. Open your eyes and pick up the first thing you see lying on the ground near you. Take this home and place it under your pillow for three nights and your Totem animal will come to you in your dreams.

5. When you know what your Totem animal is, remember to look out for it in the world around you and to acknowledge this gift of the Goddess each time you see it

FOOLPROOF WAY TO GET PWP REQUESTS (fast)

After spending quite a bit of time googling how to get pwp requests, I’ve come up with (almost) the perfect strategy. I’ve combined other people’s techniques along with my own and this is what I’ve come up with. This is also known as the diving trick, but as I stated before I’ve added and replaced some techniques that, in my opinion, make it better. Also note: I tried doing this without any other pwp’s built and I did not get a single request, after I built two pwp’s I started getting requests.

Items you’ll need:

- wet suit

- flowers

- timer and shovel (optional)

Step one (optional):

Trap the villagers that you don’t want pwp’s from by digging holes around them. What I typically do is I separate the villagers, if I want pwp’s from peppy and uchi I’ll have my peppy and uchi villagers in the top portion of my town and I’ll dig holes so they can’t cross the bridges. OR an easier way would be to dig holes around the villagers so that you know where all of the villagers are, so you’re not chasing them around town and pinging villagers you don’t want to ping.

Step two:

Empty your pockets of bells and items then fill them up with flowers!

it’s important to note that if your pockets are empty then villagers can ask you to buy stuff from them, if your pockets have items in them then villagers can ask to buy those items, they can also ask you to run them errands, or they can even give you items for free; which is nice but that isn’t our goal here. You don’t want more than 500 bells on you. I usually carry 99 bells. Also, by filling our pockets with flowers we will eliminate a lot of possible outcomes of a ping!

Step three:

Put your wetsuit on and swim to the far bottom right or far bottom left corner of your ocean. The idea here is to be completely out of sight from your villagers. Sit in the bottom left or bottom right hand corner of your ocean and wait for 5-10 minutes. This is where the timer comes in, you can time yourself using the timer or you could always set a timer on your phone. I personally set a timer on my phone. While you’re waiting you can watch tv, do homework, do chores, or whatever you’d like to burn time!

Step four:

After the you spend 5-10 minutes chilling in the ocean swim back to your town and walk, I repeat, walk by the villagers you want requests from. More often than not you’ll find out that villagers will want you to change their catchphrase, greeting, nickname, etc. I usually change these when asked. Why? Because I don’t want them to ask me to change it again. I usually only change it slightly though by adding an exclamation point or pluralizing it. You should get a request within the first five times.

Step five:

IF YOU RANDOMLY STOPPED GETTING PINGS THERE’S A REASON WHY!I found this out the hard way, but if you randomly stop getting pings it’s because you’re “tired”. Talk to your villagers and they’ll say something like “Wow…you’ve been playing awhile you should take a break!” right after that dialogue it’ll reset and you’ll start getting pings again. You’ll get a ping right after you talk to a villager about this so don’t talk to a villager you want a ping from. This will happen about every hour or so.

Step six:

It’s said that you can only get one request a day! I don’t know if this is true, but I surely don’t want to take the risk. After I get a request I’ll time travel a day in time to continue grinding for pwp’s. I have never gotten two requests in a day.

Summary:

- Empty your pockets of bells/items

- Fill your inventory of flowers

- Trap villagers you don’t want pinging you (optional)

- Swim to the farthest edge of your ocean and wait for 5-10 minutes

- Walk by villagers to get a ping

- Change catchphrases/greetings if possible.

- Talk to villagers if you’re not getting pings anymore (typically after an hour)
