Being a Libra moon can be infuriating.

The moon represents our emotions, our inner selves, our intuition, and some our most personal desires.

Libra is the only zodiac sign represented by an object. Objects are inherently lifeless, they do not have thoughts or feelings and cannot take action. All objects exist only to serve, to benefit others. Their purpose to be used. Objects are created by life forms and used by life forms. An object does not exist just to exist as the way people do. They cannot fulfill their purpose without other’s interactions and influence.

So, in combination, this sign does not feel the way other moon signs do. In the realm of emotion, a lifeless object such as the scales is uncomfortable under the moon’s position. Here, the celestial body that rules emotion has no natural life force to work with. The scales are born impartial, objective, and devoid of feeling.

This lack of feeling where there should be is what causes many Libra moons (and to a lesser extent Air moons) to feel hollow. There is an emptiness that rages inside. The emptiness may come and go the way the moon pulls the ocean tides back out to sea, but it is always there. Think of emotions as the sea, vast and ever changing. The Libra moon sails its small ship at night, alone. The water is dark and calm on the surface but underneath lies a turbulent current. The Libra always feels the nagging of the whirlpool underneath and struggles to sail against it. It is only when the Lunar Libra finds a match to sail with do they feel like they have a chance to conquer the undercurrent. It is only when the Libra has found companionship are they able to sail under the warmth of the sun, feel the spray of the sea, and enjoy what life has to offer.

Lunar Libras logically know they have the power to be independent, to sail their ship alone. But doing so would mean facing the sinister undercurrent by themselves. Having a partner fulfills their ancient need to be of service, of use. Others influence, create, and mold Libras: something they cannot do on their own. An object cannot create itself. It needs the touch of another.

A Libra without love is an object who’s creator has thrown them away. Libras need to be desires and loved in the same regard a sailor takes care of his ship. An unloved Libra is a ship forever docked, never taken out to see the world.

The moon in Libra needs other’s influence to develop themselves. They can learn how to behave, how to respond, how to feel, how to live. The Lunar Libra must always try harder to access their feelings than other signs. They must build their own personality from what they’ve learned along the way.

There are two parts to the Scales. Lunar Libras come into this world trying to keep them level and balanced by themselves, but always one side is heavier than the other. Having a partner means that Libras have help to keep the Scales even. They can finally lay down in a dish to rest, their partner in the other keeps them balanced and safe.

Please be patient with the Scales for they are still learning how to sail.

Cutting it close to the deadline, this is for the Gemsona February prompt. Obviously, I chose the “classroom gems” prompt and had the Astro Gems chibified and teaching a lesson based on their personalities and interests. I didn’t think it would take too long but my coloring habits proved me wrong.

EDIT EDIT: I realized I made an embarassing grammar typo. It’s supposed to be who instead of which… but it’s the obsidians, they’d probably make grammar errors. smooth, nerida. smooth

Anyone remember this?

Time to talk about one of my favorite underrated movie, which is Astro Boy 2009 (based on an old anime that came out in 1960). I’ll begin by admitting that the film has flaws, but they’re easily ignorable because of the kindhearted story and especially the kindheartedness of Astro himself. The story is about a scientist who lost his son and tries replacing him with a robot that looked like him, but ends up abandoning it, Aka Astro. The film is about him trying to find his place in the world. I want to talk about the film because of the character.

The character of Astro is perfect, he’s smart, strong, kind, wise, powerful and so on, which could be considered as cheap, as bad writing, but what makes this work is that the film addresses it. Because of him being so kind and smart, people loved him, but as soon as they found out that he was a robot, he got treated as if his qualities weren’t real and that it was all programmed, making him feel fake. The characters even feel betrayed for him tricking them into treating him like a human, which is really sad. Then that leads to his friends treating him like an item and as a slave even, but what does Astro do? He forgives them all, his father for throwing him away and his friends who had him as a slave. His story is about rejection, forgiveness and acceptance, which are tough topics for a kids film, but that’s what makes it so great. This film perfectly balances the character thanks to how the world is written around him, and i really felt like i needed to talk about that at least once. 

That tragedy then really helps the character grow, he feels even stronger for being so emotionally broken and still being able to smile and makes his every decision of his feel powerful. After watching this film when I was little, he helped me grow. I wanted to be as strong as him so I became more forgiving and open-minded to different views, so thanks movie.

This film is being forgotten and it saddens me, because this is a wonderful film for kids to watch. It treats the young viewers with respect, gives a harsh yet heartwarming story, beautiful soundtracks (seriously, they’re amazing) and some really nice action scenes.

If only more people cared about this film, because I have so much more to say about it.


ASTRO as cinnamon rolls [x]

The lingering possibility of a Pluto anime.

Masao Maruyama, co-founder of Madhouse and founder of MAPPA, has on a few occasions expressed interest in producing an anime adaption of Naoki Urasawa’s manga Pluto. The first time I could find was in an interview in 2012. He said that he was very interested in animating it, actually. And that the only problem was that to do the manga justice, they would need to make it eight hours long and it would require an unusually large sum of money.

In 2014, there was another interview where he was asked about it. He said that Pluto is important to him because it’s based on Astro Boy, and that he feels like a son of Tezuka’s. Though he also said that Naoki Urasawa is a good friend of his. He said that yes, they want to make Pluto together. Though the only problem is, again, that they need to secure enough funding for it first. And that they estimated it would require 800 million yen, presumably 100 million per hour-long episode. He said that it’s a project that he has to do before he dies, and that for that they have to find the money necessary as well as the best people to carry it out. And that it’s in a similar position as Satoshi Kon’s unfinished Dream Machine.

There hasn’t been any actual news that I could find since then. Fast forward to the present. I saw that Masao Maruyama was to be a guest at my local anime convention Animazement. It’s not exactly a small convention at this point, though it’s also not comparable to the big ones like Otakon and Anime Expo. Animazement was back in May. There’s no media or anything like that there and a lot of the time, people don’t even record the panels there. I’m only able to relay what happened with my words. I went to Maruyama’s panel and got a chance to ask during the Q&A if Pluto still had the potential to happen, and that if so, when it might.

With a smile on his face and a quick nod, his response was “Before I die.” and there was a lot of laughter in the audience at his strangely morbid answer. He then elaborated, saying that it’s a project he still really wants to do. And that his life expectancy is only a couple more years…which only made things more morbid. He said that Pluto was something he definitely wants to do before then, and that he’s planning to hopefully have it finished before the Japan Olympics. He then said that this shouldn’t be taken as an official announcement of any sort, and that it’s just him speaking off the top of his head. Making a guesstimate, if you will. But it’s very clear that they’re actively thinking about and looking into making Pluto happen. And it seems like it’s only a matter of time. It’s a wonder that he’s still working so hard despite his age, he truly values his work. Let’s just hope he doesn’t work himself to death.

draconic vs. natal chart

the natal chart is the chart you probably have the most access to; it’s the chart you drew up on, astrotheme, astro-charts, or wherever based on the exact moment of your birth. 

getting more into the draconic chart lately, we’ve really been having a field day with how much it can tell you about your development, i feel especially in your childhood? many interpret the draconic chart as what you were “supposed” to be, before events in your life altered your perception, and that’s what your natal chart is: your current perception of the world after you got to earth. 

the draconic is called the “soul” chart, and provides major insight into your destiny/purpose- as kayla says, your NN on crack lol. so comparing the draconic chart to your natal chart can tell us a lot about what has happened since coming to earth to alter your perception of the world, and yourself.

so since we mentioned the NN (north node), i’ll reiterate its significance in the draconic chart. the draconic chart is your natal chart, with every placement dialed back accordingly until the north node is back to 0 degrees aries. sometimes, there may not be HUGE changes, but if a planet changes sign it will be a significant thing to consider regardless.

that’s why i kind of feel like libra NN gets the short end of the stick on this. it’s common for us to have a ton of draconic placements that are almost opposite our natal placements. i feel like in general libra NN’s have such a weird disconnect, because like you’re not supposed to identify with your draconic chart really, because your natal chart is the now. it’s what you have become and what you are continuously becoming, give or take progressions or whatever.

so this is just a brainstorm, just something we’ve been doing that i’d like feedback on. what we’ve been doing is literally the least technical thing we’ve ever done with astrology but i feel like it’s an interesting.. ‘exercise’? literally we’re just comparing my draconic placements to the natal and saying like “i went from desiring/embodying/needing x to desiring/embodying/needing y, i wonder what happened” lol 

for example. my draconic venus is in capricorn. my natal venus is in leo. so i’ve literally been thinking about it like, “my soul might have wanted this mature, controlled, less passionate more committed sense of romance, but now all i really want is to be adored completely and show it to everyone. i wonder why i became this way?”

i’m not really that good with draconic stuff, we are just trying to immerse ourselves into learning about it more so these are just thoughts and ways we’re trying to think about it as we learn. if you guys have any insights, comments, feedback, please give us all of it! we want to learn from you all as well!

14 Different Methodologies of Mind Control

These are the most necessary to understand because they are the most influential over mass consciousness.

1) Obfuscation: Just basic confusion of one thing for another- a smoke and mirrors game.

2) World View Poisoning: Conditioning the way people view human nature and their own self-value.

3) Conditioning of Primal Fear: The exploitation of primal fears.

4) Divide and Conquer Strategy: Highlight any perceived differences between people and then exploit those differences to create infighting so they are easier to control and conquer.

5) Indoctrination of Education System: A left brain form of Nazis called it mastery learning. grade school, HS and university. Trivium and quadrivium education could counteract this.

6) Controlled Opposition: Basic dialectics - dialectical mechanics or Hegelianism Creating conflict that you already have an outcome management system for. Create the conflict and wait for a type of reaction to the conflict (usually chaotic that demands a resolution) and then you step in and resolve it. Artificial conflict resolution.

7) Monetary System of Control: Debt based fiat currency fractional reserve banking a system of illusion that we call money yet people believe in it like its a religion or god. People seem to be the most powerless to come out of. It exists purely in the mind.

8) Control of Mass Media: If you can control the info that people get to see hear and read you control their perception of reality. If you limit the scope of what they can take into their minds and awareness you limit their possibilities of solutions. Human perception management.

9) Food and Medicine: attack on the physical aspects of the body relates to how our brain development goes. You affect thought and consciousness you are what you eat. Use techniques that are damaging to consciousness through the modern medical system

10) Illusion of Time: Very important for people to grasp. Play on people’s seeming inability to live in true present moment awareness– getting people to live in regret over the past or anxiety over the future. Its a fear based technique. Takes us out of true present awareness. Being fully present now to take on what is happening now. If our consciousness can be manipulated into always looking into what has happened. It takes away effectiveness of dealing with the current situation.

11) The DHR Factor: Denial, Hassle, Ridicule: What other people perceive about you. Denial, hassle ridicule factor. Things are fine the way they are I don’t want to rock the boat because I may have to deal with hassle of other people. The hassle free zone is– I don’t want all the uncomfortable aspects of life that come with standing up for truth. These are all fear based. Heightening those three forms of mental instability. Trap of inactivity and not really doing anything to make things better.

12) Religion: We need to understand these last three the best. Religion is a form of binding. To tie back Re-Ligare tying back. Forms of modern religion are mind control based on astro-theology. Giving people an exoteric version of something that was once esoteric or internal. Government is the binding on the left brain… religion is the binding of the right brain.

13) Use of Subversive Symbolism: Based on ancient sacred symbolism. Based on symbols that have been with us from antiquity. Solar symbolism, life force symbols, energy, blood, or anything we need for existence and life. They use these in modern institutions— banks, police, media, stores. We’re drenched in it. Basic symbols have a powerful psychic influence. They can speak to us without words. A wordless form of communication. Connects to occultism.

14) Problem-Reaction-Solution (Chaos Sorcery): A mass demonstration or a public display of the dark aspects of the Hegelian dialectic. Hegelian dialectic can be used in a positive or negative sense. Chaos sorcery or false flag terrorism. This is ritual magic being used openly in the light of day. You are creating a chaotic situation in the light of day and you know it will elicit an extreme reaction of fear and chaos that demands order be brought as soon as possible. You are manipulating the fear in the limbic system– people are not in a state that they can reason. They are demanding solutions purely out of emotions. They are in a reactive mode of consciousness. They want the outcome of the game known before the game is played. Interject chaos, you know the reaction its going to cause and you know. A leap in consciousness will subvert this technique. This technique works over and over again. Humanity won’t wake up. 9-11 was chaos sorcery.
