Horrorscope

Find out the scariest moment of your life (that has yet to occur) based on your star sign!

Aries: Glowing lavender eyes blinking at you from the ceiling of your unlit bedroom.

Taurus: You wake up to the sound of someone breaking into your house in the middle of the night. You call the police, and in your voice they answer, “You are wrong. There is no one there. There is no one anywhere.” You hang up and decide to make a run for it. On your way out, you crash into someone who looks exactly like you. “What are you doing in my house?” they scream. You catch a glimpse of your reflection in a window.  You are not who you thought you were. 

Gemini:  An amorphous tentacled creature lurching toward you from the opposite end of a dark alleyway.

Cancer: Wickedly sharp claws attached to the had of a close friend. She swears it’s just the latest trend. You swear this “trend” is drawing much more blood than it should.

Leo: There is a black hole in the bottom of your mug. It is small. It is strong. It is growing.

Virgo: A package has arrived on your doorstep. You didn’t order anything. You open the box and your own eyes blink up at you.

Libra: A rustic mirror, perhaps hundreds of years old. You swear that your reflection is moving just a touch slower than you are…

Scorpio: You enjoy singing along to the radio.The radio enjoys singing with you. It has fallen in love with you and resolved to destroy anyone who may get in its way. Violently.

Sagittarius: A white, unmarked van. The man at the wheel offers you a wolfish grin and promises there’s candy inside. You enter the van and it is, indeed, filled with candy, but every piece is filled with coconut. Even the lollipops. You scream.

Capricorn: A Tuesday. This particular Tuesday is accompanied by the realization that melancholia will eternally color your life. You are fine. You are fine. You are fine.

Aquarius: One day, while you are swimming, something brushes your leg. You don’t see anything, but whatever it was chills you to your core for reasons you can’t explain. You never do find out what it was, but you often wake up in a cold sweat from dreaming about it. You can almost see it… it’s hungry

Pisces:  A train. Unmoving. But for some reason you can’t explain, you are hurtling towards it rapidly.

anonymous asked:

I want to live by myself when I move out of my parent's place but I'm really afraid of money problems? I'm afraid that the only place I can afford will be in the ghetto and it'll all be torn apart and I'll only be allowed to eat one granola bar a week. I'm really stressing out about this. I don't know anything about after school life. I don't know anything about paying bills or how to buy an apartment and it's really scaring me. is there anything you know that can help me?

Asks I’ll Probably Need to Refer People to Later

Adult Cheat Sheet:

Once you’ve looked over all those cool links, I have some general advice for you on how you can have some sort of support system going for you:

Reasons to move out of home

You may decide to leave home for many different reasons, including:

  • wishing to live independently
  • location difficulties – for example, the need to move closer to university
  • conflict with your parents
  • being asked to leave by your parents.

Issues to consider when moving out of home

It’s common to be a little unsure when you make a decision like leaving home. You may choose to move, but find that you face problems you didn’t anticipate, such as:

  • Unreadiness – you may find you are not quite ready to handle all the responsibilities.
  • Money worries – bills including rent, utilities like gas and electricity and the cost of groceries may catch you by surprise, especially if you are used to your parents providing for everything. Debt may become an issue.
  • Flatmate problems – issues such as paying bills on time, sharing housework equally, friends who never pay board, but stay anyway, and lifestyle incompatibilities (such as a non-drug-user flatting with a drug user) may result in hostilities and arguments.

Your parents may be worried

Think about how your parents may be feeling and talk with them if they are worried about you. Most parents want their children to be happy and independent, but they might be concerned about a lot of different things. For example:

  • They may worry that you are not ready.
  • They may be sad because they will miss you.
  • They may think you shouldn’t leave home until you are married or have bought a house.
  • They may be concerned about the people you have chosen to live with.

Reassure your parents that you will keep in touch and visit regularly. Try to leave on a positive note. Hopefully, they are happy about your plans and support your decision.

Tips for a successful move

Tips include:

  • Don’t make a rash decision – consider the situation carefully. Are you ready to live independently? Do you make enough money to support yourself? Are you moving out for the right reasons?
  • Draw up a realistic budget – don’t forget to include ‘hidden’ expenses such as the property’s security deposit or bond (usually four weeks’ rent), connection fees for utilities, and home and contents insurance.
  • Communicate – avoid misunderstandings, hostilities and arguments by talking openly and respectfully about your concerns with flatmates and parents. Make sure you’re open to their point of view too – getting along is a two-way street.
  • Keep in touch – talk to your parents about regular home visits: for example, having Sunday night dinner together every week.
  • Work out acceptable behaviour – if your parents don’t like your flatmate(s), find out why. It is usually the behaviour rather than the person that causes offence (for example, swearing or smoking). Out of respect for your parents, ask your flatmate(s) to be on their best behaviour when your parents visit and do the same for them.
  • Ask for help – if things are becoming difficult, don’t be too proud to ask your parents for help. They have a lot of life experience.

If your family home does not provide support

Not everyone who leaves home can return home or ask their parents for help in times of trouble. If you have been thrown out of home or left home to escape abuse or conflict, you may be too young or unprepared to cope.

If you are a fostered child, you will have to leave the state-care system when you turn 18, but you may not be ready to make the sudden transition to independence.

If you need support, help is available from a range of community and government organisations. Assistance includes emergency accommodation and food vouchers. If you can’t call your parents or foster parents, call one of the associations below for information, advice and assistance.

Where to get help

  • Your doctor
  • Kids Helpline Tel. 1800 55 1800
  • Lifeline Tel. 13 11 44
  • Home Ground Services Tel. 1800 048 325
  • Relationships Australia Tel. 1300 364 277
  • Centrelink Crisis or Special Help Tel. 13 28 50
  • Tenants Union of Victoria Tel. (03) 9416 2577

Things to remember

  • Try to solve any problems before you leave home. Don’t leave because of a fight or other family difficulty if you can possibly avoid it.
  • Draw up a realistic budget that includes ‘hidden’ expenses, such as bond, connection fees for utilities, and home and contents insurance.
  • Remember that you can get help from a range of community and government organizations.

Sun through the houses

Sun in the 1st house:  With the sun in the first house, great effort is put into creating and maintaining a good self image. The way you are perceived by others is paramount to first-house sun people. Accept that you need to be a leader or an innovator, and go for it, but be careful not to be overbearing with others. A sunny disposition is generally attributed to this placement and a positive confident attitude is normally displayed. 

Sun in the 2nd house With a second-house sun, a person’s identity is developed and expressed by defining personal values and accumulating objects of value. You have the ability to attract money and resources, but you can’t always hang on to it or it doesn’t bring you the happiness you expected.   Avoid over-identifying with what you have. Take pride in the solid and secure foundations that you build, as well as the lasting relationships you aim to maintain, while being careful to avoid possessiveness.

Sun in the 3rd house: Gemini, the natural ruler of this house, gives Geminian overtones to all traits. You is driven to learn, explore and enjoy their immediate environment.  You have an uncontainable desire to acquire knowledge. You relish in taking various pieces of knowledge and putting them together like puzzles that need solving. You’re observant, optimistic, flexible and you’re a superb communicator, able to relate ideas clearly to others. You would make make an excellent teacher, lecturer or writer.  

Sun in the 4th house: The chart holder with a fourth-house sun is not happy unless their home life is happy. Because the fourth house can be deep and emotional, the sun here has to work extra hard to liven and inspire things. They thrive and excel in a home that is active, alive, open and loving. If they aren’t in this type of home environment, they will not feel invigorated about their life. They will strive to make the changes necessary to give them the home and family life they need. 

Sun in the 5th house: The sun is comfortable in its own house. In fact, it is driven to shine here. At its best, it creates a chart holder who is confident about who they are and how they affect others. You want to be noticed for your unique and special qualities and your creativity. You are happiest when you are expressing yourself in a special way and attention comes your way as a result. You have a flair for drama and/or sports. You are proud of your fun-loving attitude towards life. As you demonstrate your ability to shine, avoid grabbing center stage all of the time.

Sun in the 6th house: The work that you do, and the services that you offer, are very important to your sense of identity. In order to feel good about yourself, you need to be busy with daily activities and to produce work you can be proud of. Focus on finding a suitable and rewarding avenue for expressing this part of you, being extra careful to choose an occupation in which you can express yourself. You are sensitive to criticism about the work you do, and you work best when you can create your own schedule.

Sun in the 7th house: Libran traits are accented with the Sun in this house. You take pride in your ability to negotiate, and to establish harmony in your relationships. It is important to you to have a partner, as you feel incomplete without one. You can be fickle about partners because new partners inspire them and allow them to see themselves in new ways. You’re self-confident, popular and have favorable dealings with your superiors. You’re good at public relations, sales and promotions.

Sun in the 8th house: You have a great urge to go farther or deeper into life every step of the way. You want to experience more, and your desires are both powerful and intense. It is hard for you to find satisfaction in common experiences, and you have magnetic power if you choose to use it wisely. You are fascinated with what lies under the surface, and at some point in your life, self-improvement is a big interest. You are attracted to unexplored or taboo areas of life, and you avoid all things superficial.

Sun in the 9th house:  You have a deep need to understand the world around you. You have high ideals and you have your eye on what’s on the horizon. You are looking ahead, and at times can seem quite restless. You are proud of your knowledge and of your morals. Be sure to avoid self-righteousness in your enthusiasm to share your knowledge. When used correctly, you are a tolerant, adventurous, and curious person, and you want to see the best in people and in life

Sun in the 10th house: The traits of Capricorn are much in evidence. Your career takes on greater than average importance. You feel the need to improve your career and is usually successful and involves your whole personality, possibly at the expense of your marriage and friendships. You’re ambitious and intrigued by power, which may make you too authoritative and dictatorial. You’re a leader in whatever you do and people pay attention to you. You may become arrogant or rebellious if you let that attention go to your head.

Sun in the 11th house: The Aquarian traits are stressed here and you simply want to do your own thing. You have many clear-cut objectives and usually achieve what you set out to do. You have a strong desire to gain recognition through mental achievements and inventions. You have strong organizing abilities and are usually a leader in any group you are involved with– societies and groups are an important part of your life. You’re apt to be a humanitarian with concern for universal human dignity and brotherhood

Sun in the 12th house: You have a tendency to be introspective and need some space and seclusion in order to pull up your strength. You may avoid the spotlight, and if you do find yourself in a public role, you tend to hide your true self behind that role!  However the sun sheds his light on this house giving the native zero worries under stressful situation. No matter what the problem is, the native will sleep sound, and will be able to see all the secret dealing happening behind or against him or her. This also can take a native to foreign lands.

Fairy Tail "One Magic”theory and Capricorn ??? (sorta)

~~this is kinda just for fun, super short, has no conclusion because I’m a horrible writer (like shit I, myself don’t even know where I’m going with this) but if you read this and see where I’m coming from feel free to take this info and make a real theory on this!!! cuz I suck!!!!~~

So let’s cut right to the chase 

I believe that Capricorn, Lucy and the One Magic are all somehow are all going to come together/or connected. and maybe lucy might save the day

Just going give some bullets~

  • Lucy’s mom, Layla Heartfilia believes that The One Magic is love and told that to Lucy as well. (Mavis also believes this)
  • Capricorn and Lucy talked about this during training for the Grand Magic Games


  • Capricorn afterwords smiles at her and tells her he likes her idea.

SPEAKING OF CAPRICORN, who haven’t we seen in this entire arc ??????

We haven’t even seen her star dress for it yet (which I’ve said a million times that I’m dying to see it like just imagine her kicking ass in a lil suit) 

Anyway call me annoying, crazy whatever but there has to be a reason Mashima hasn’t showed us yet.

THE FACT THAT SHE BELIEVES ONE MAGIC IS LOVE


The fact we have yet to see Capricorn and Lucy’s last star dress, that Lucy has only talked to Capricorn about One Magic, that Natsu’s awake now and that one universe is undone and Team Natsu is now heading to the guild where ZEREF is

I don’t know I just feel like Mashima is planning something big… 

or I could just be completely wrong and off but I mean it’s fun to guess :p

ANyway I’m done sorry if this was shitty and made no sense or if you’ve already read a theory similar but please comment if you have more to add or just anything to say<3 

On a weekly basis, you do so many things that should make you proud. You get out of bed on the days that are hard, you smile through the bad days, you go to work even though you hate it. You do a extremely large amount of things that you don’t want to do, or that you find difficult. You are so brave for living your life, you should be proud of everything.
