In the context of astrology, the term “Masculine” refers to a sign whose energy is naturally projected outwards. “Feminine” means a sign’s energy is naturally tuned to receiving and turned inwards.
“Masculine” (+) signs express their energy positively when projecting it outwards, onto the world and other people. “Feminine” (-) signs express their energy positively when turning their focus inward.
Aries (+) : you are at your best when leading/initiating projects with others instead of just going off and doing things on your own
Taurus (-) : you are at your best when you work on being self-possessed, instead of trying to possess things and people outside of yourself
Gemini (+) : you are at your best when you communicate clearly and directly with others, instead of hoarding/manipulating information for yourself to meet your own ends
Cancer (-) : you are at your best when you nurture your own insecurities and take care of your own emotional needs, instead of expecting others to nurture you or taking care of others’ needs in hopes of creating dependency
Leo (+) : you are at your best when you shine the spotlight on other talented people and make everyone around you feel special, instead of trying to get attention and recognition for yourself (note- if you make someone feel special, you automatically become special/beautiful in their eyes; you get love by being generous with your own love, so this is a good way to go about it, and leos are all about getting love; just be genuine)
Virgo (-) : you are at your best when you are self-critical and strive to improve your own perceived flaws, instead of pointing out others’ shortcomings
Libra (+) : you are at your best when you bring/match other people together, instead of trying to attract them to yourself to meet your need for attention, admiration, and partnership
Scorpio (-) : you are at your best when you practice self-control and deal with conflict quietly, instead of trying to control others and bringing hidden issues out into the open (it’s best to let people figure out and resolve their problems on their own, as hard as that might be to watch)
Sagittarius (+) : you are at your best when you escape and find freedom in the external world, with other people, instead of by withdrawing into yourself or using drugs/alcohol/addiction as a means of escape
Capricorn (-) : you are at your best when you isolate yourself to get work done and depend on yourself, instead of trying to isolate others and getting them to depend on you to assuage your fear of abandonment (each sign carries traits of the preceding sign; sags actually have the mother of all abandonment issues, and it is passed on to capricorns; the difference is in how these two signs deal with it- sags avoid dependence of any kind, while caps try to force it from others)
Aquarius (+) : you are at your best when you use your image/status to help others and improve the world at large, instead of using external things/people to improve your own reputation
Pisces (-) : you are at your best when you keep your internal fantasies separate from external reality, instead of projecting them onto other people/the world at large, creating delusions
What would Yuri do if Beka had to go away for a week for another job in Mafia AU? 👀
This actually does happen, especially the more respected that Beka becomes within the Bratva, they see him as someone capable and level headed (after all, he deals with Yuri day in and day out), so they call on him from time to time to deal with more… difficult people. Yuri tries to put up a bratty fight that Beka can’t go and do this job because he needsto be here, but Beka just looks at him and says “Yura” in that voice that makes Yuri shut up.
So, Otabek would have to go off on another job for that week – boss’s orders. Yuri thinks he can handle it, as long as he can text Beka the entire time. The first day is okay - Beka replies quickly, tells Yuri he’s pretty in all his selfies he sends and says he misses Yuri. He warns him not to give his temporary guard much trouble (To which Yuri just sends him
😈 in response, which makes Otabek groan in his taxi to the airport, and replies “Hellcat.”)
But each day that passes Otabek is talking less and less to him, and it worries Yuri. At first, he just was annoyed because he wanted attention – when he didn't’ get the automatic replies of “beautiful, yura” when he sent a seflie, and instead got them minutes, if not hours later, he was furious. But then Otabek wouldn’t even tell him what he was doing, or where he was. On the third day he didn’t hear anything from Otabek until finally, lying in his bed, fighting back a panic and calling him repeatedly, Otabek picked up on the twentieth ring. He sounded tired and exhausted, his voice strained, and Yuri was scared. Yuri’s voice softened, his complaints dying in his throat, all his anger gone and he just quietly asked daddy what was wrong. But Otabek said nothing, promised he was fine and told Yuri not to worry - then ordered him to tell him about his day, down to every mundane little detail. Yuri laughed – Otabek was so weird.
The fifth day was a lot like the third, but now Otabek didn’t even read his messages. Now, he had an added worry though of watching Yakov and Grandpa pace and worry about the house, talking in hushed voices behind doors. Yuri would try to listen in but would scamper when he heard footsteps coming down the hall, retreating to his room to play on his phone, checking all of Otabek’s too ignored social media but finding not a single clue. He wasted his entire day in there, under his silky sheets with his cat by his side, lunging at his phone anytime it went off and pouting when it was anyone but Otabek. Georgi tried to bring him tea and was chased out of the room with vase thrown against the wall – which got him a lecture from Yakov about breaking priceless family heirlooms, but he didn’t care, especially when Yakov refused to tell him anyhting about where Otabek was or when he’d be back, if at all.
On the sixth day, Mila came in and told him she had tracked Otabek’s phone and it was still moving. Yuri reminded her that meant nothing, because someone could just have his phone, hag. That led to a fight between the two of them that Yakov had to break up, Mila reminding Yuri with a sour look she was only trying to help.
He didn’t want their pity, though.
On the seventh day, he woke up at 3 am from a text from Otabek that just read: “Coming home.” He said nothing else, and he didn’t answer any of Yuri’s hundred follow up questions, leaving Yuri to pace his room all day, chain smoking with shaky hands until late in the evening when he finally hears the door open and turns to see his Otabek there, bruised eyes and scabbed. Yuri whimpers, and leaps at Otabek in his silky little robe, throwing his arms around him. “You smell like smoke”, Otabek scolds him, and Yuri scoffs, his face buried into Otabek’s chest, breathing in deeply. “And you smell like blood, asshole.”
For whatever reason, imagining an AU where Ethan is a fallen angel really makes me happy? Like Ethan waking up cast down from the sky and he has no idea how to live on Earth, but he bumps into Mark n Amy n Ty n Kat and he ends up just following them around and asking questions about everything?
Ethan with fluffy wings and eyes that glow white when he’s angry? Speaking of wings, Ethan hiding behind his wings when he’s embarrassed or using them to flutter up when Tyler calls him short? Plus everyone automatically finds him beautiful at first sight and Mark has used the “Did it hurt when you fell from heaven?” Line several times because he finds it funny
Angelic Eth not being able to lie? Ever? Which leads to him confessing a lot of things he doesn’t want to, like how he ate the last of the waffles and he doesn’t actually think that hat looks good on Mark and also he’s in love with like everyone on the team, etc.
Plus since it’s really common in mythology for angels to have healing powers? Eth lying in bed with Ty and asking about his kidney, Ty tells him and E just gets really sad and curls up against Ty’s chest? And Ethan is like “you’re okay now” and Tyler doesn’t know what that means but his health has completely improved at his next doctor’s appointment
Or if the first time Eth heals someone is when the rest of the team is super sick and struggling to make videos, Ethan goes to snuggle with them since they’re all sitting in a miserable sick circle on the floor, editing videos. Everyone is immediately like “dude no! We’re gonna get you sick” but Ethan just does it anyways because he’s a cuddle monster and heals them in the process
Bonus if Mark still has red hair when Ethan falls and Eth sees it and get super excited because he wants his hair to look like that! So after a few weeks he finally convinces Mark to take him to the hairstylist but he catches a glimpse of a girl with blue hair and changes his mind? So he comes out of the salon with bright blue hair and angel wings puffed out in happiness, Mark tells him he looks like he’s going to a costume party.
I don’t know why this is specific to this AU but Amy and Kathryn exchanging Eskimo kisses with Ethan? Because they love their blue boy
Plus any time they see a bird in public someone will point to it and say “Look Ethan your mom came back for you”

“Okay sweetheart, we have the perfect plan for yours and Seth’s date tonight.” My dad told me in the way to Monday Night Raw.
“What is the plan?” I asked both my parents who just so happens to be the power couple of WWE, Triple H (Hunter) and Stephanie McMahon.
“ Well once Raw is over, a limo will pick you both up from the arena and will take you to most extravagant restaurant in the city then afterwards you 2 lovebirds can do whatever you want,” My mum told me with excitement in her voice, however, despite the happiness and excitement in my mum’s voice, I felt sick to my stomach when she called me and Seth “ lovebirds”.
See the problem is I don’t love Seth, I mean he is apart of the authority therefore we have made a friendship but that’s all it will ever be, also he can be quite nasty and harsh to people without a strong enough reason. Plus I am in a relationship with Finn Balor. It hasn’t be for long, just over a few months and it has been the most happiest few months of my life. He treats me so well and seems to care for me, very deeply, just as much as I care for him. But as evident, my parents have no idea about our relationship and are trying to force a relationship with me and Seth and it is just plain annoying.
“Okay mum,” I sighed as the car pulled into the arena.
What are the things that obscure our inner beauty?
There are three principal things that
obscure our inner beauty: lack of clarity in the mind, lack of purity in
the vital and lack of sincerity in the body. If the body-consciousness
is sincere, the vital pure and the mind clear, then we automatically get
inner beauty. In the absence of these divine qualities, we see ugliness
