The saturnian seagoat sees the world as against them, as a mountain blocking their way. "I am unlucky" they sigh, when it is only their consuming pessimism and self-doubt acting as the mountain.
  • ♒ Aquarius: Detached, arrogant, unsympathetic, frigid and erratic in action. Preaches open-mindedness yet expresses opinions in a dogmatic manner. Minimizes serious situations, breaks rules that do not make sense by their flawed standards, and fights for pointless causes.

  • ♓ Pisces: Overly sensitive, teary, and a habit of lying. An open display of indulgence in one's sorrows and misfortunes that reflect a victim complex. Unreliable, lazy and avoids responsibilities through escapism. "I sacrifice so much and get nothing" weeps the fish, who must know that it is not sacrifice if there is reward.

I don’t think a lot of people understand the Aquarius archetype or just like…. the sign of Aquarius…. at all. People think they’re not “supposed to” understand them because they are Aquarius; they’re weird, ruled by uranus, offbeat and eccentric. But the archetype itself is the water bearer: they are an air sign. The last air sign. They are here for the conscious collective mind; they rule the 11th house of social networking and friends, hopes & dreams/aspirations. They are the water bearer because they are here to nourish and use their knowledge to aid and help others. They want to shower the world with their knowledge and guidance. Uranus is the higher octave of mercury; it’s genius. Aquarius is the mastery level of thinking. He uses his knowledge to help and look out for others rather than themselves; they use what they know to better the world they live in. Which is why they are associated with rebellion and being advocates, they fight against the social norm of the blatant negativity we see everyday and use what they know to go against it to make it better for all. They represent the conscious collective all in one. They are the 11th sign, the sign before pisces. Pisces, being the last sign, rules the unconscious collective, everything we cannot see. Pisces rules every universal being, visual or not.

Aquarius watches over all of us, as we are all friends to aquarius. It’s like they know everyone somewhat personally, every time they greet someone it’s like they’ve met them in the past and they’re finally seeing them again after years. They are so friendly even if they cannot see it in themselves, and teach others how to be a friend. How to lean on them to help. How to help. It’s very easy to laugh and be yourself around them, they believe individuality is the best quality a person can have. They want to teach everyone most of all that being yourself, free and independent, against what others want you to be, is who you should be and deserve to be.

judithbuttplug  asked:

I don't think I really understand what the age of Aquarius means. I heard it has something to do with knowledge and technological advancement?

all these age of aquarius qs are weird cause i kind of had this intuiton or flash of thisarticle i wrote aboutthe aquarius age a few years ago and thought about it, that it needed updating or even deleting… lol, thank you angels, but i have some info on the aquarius age

  • rapid changes in technology we’ve seen in the last number of years (uranus rules astrology) was orchestrated by the universal forces or the divine to prepare us for the next new age
  • science (aquarius) and the collapse of the church (ending of pisces age)
  • the bible code and remote qantam possibilities have transcended, making the darkness very possible, but by living conscious and with intent, we can change reality with thought (air:aquarius)
  • preparation for leisure and creativity (11th house) to become the main facet of life when technology voids the need for manual labour 
  • the rise of the divine feminine 
  • divine forces raising collective elevation so we may become “spiritual beings having a human experience,” instead of human beings having a worldly experience
  • void of the religious patriarchy 
  • celebration of intellectuals 
  • age of reason
  • telepathy 
  • crystal power
  • rise of astrology and worship of cosmos 
  • fury of mother earth, esp through floods
  • progression toward equality 
  • the paranormal mind will become normalized; the loss of individuality to work for a collective conscious, the invisible and mental spear that will circle the earth where the world of lies and deception will fall to pieces
  • we are experiencing a conscious shift. with ultimate chaos results into synchronicity.

aquarius is a sign of uprising, rebellion, and revolution… these forces (mass displacement, rising right wing govts, attempts to separate by racism and war the collective nature of aquarius) are important instruments of powerful collective revelation, the agencies to protest, very primitive stages of the new age. 

in the aquarius water bearer we have the image of a pail titled downward from the sky. this symbolizes the release of knowledge and wisdom from higher planes, streaming onto earth like holy water. this is happening at all moments, ready for us to bath in. pisces was the sign that symbolised jesus, but uranus is the planet that symbolises christ consciousness, luke 22:22 says ‘Jesus told them, ‘Just after you go into the city, a man carrying a jug of water will meet you. Follow him into the house he enters.’”
Luke 22:10‪. christ consciousness is available to each individual, for the sake of social and soul repair, collectively. we are so distracted by the outer world that we no longer listen to the treasures of universal knowledge within us. this is the the annihilation of the ego, the end of duality, the peruivan prophecy where the 3 cosmos the over/under/everyday world the golden age when we meet ourselves again

Physical Appearance and Astrology
  • I decided to make this so it's an ~actual~ post and it might make it easier for you to understand your chart. Before I start listing placements I want to make clear that our dominant sign and planet has a strong influence no matter what. As well as the 1st house, Sun and Moon; as they all have an affect on our looks in an overall way - especially Sun. It is also important to remember that astrology and rulership isn't something that is stilted or 100% clearly defined, it all works together and flows together - like how Leo rules the heart but Aquarius rules the circulatory system (therefore veins). Another important thing to note is that you do have to take genetics into account. For example, if you realise your chart says you're supposed to have thick hair and yours isn't, it's probably just thicker in relation to your other family members:
  • What The Houses and Signs Represent:
  • First House/Aries/Mars: Head, whole face
  • Second House/Taurus/Venus: Neck, collarbones, also influences some facial features such as: mouth, ears and chin. Weight.

  • Eleventh House/Aquarius/Uranus: Calves, ankles, veins. Also note that Aquarius rules genetic mutations such as blue eyes, dimples, heterochromia iridum etc.

  • Pisces: The fish, full lips, big eyes, full cheeks
Mars in Aquarius

The rebel and the lone wolf, a Mars in Aquarius is anything but ordinary. They stand out one way or the other. Much mental power is typical for this placement because they have a unique and broad perspective of the world and humanity. Because they are so intelligent and eccentric, they are aware of this and can be arrogant about it. They may develop a God complex and do more harm than good. For the most part, an Aquarius Mars is chill and laid back. They are tolerant and they aren’t bothered by much. Having them truly get angered is pretty rare; but not impossible. Aquarius Mars, when truly angered, can fight back harsh verbally. Since they are intellectuals, they will question your intellect, where you stand, your morals and your ideas. Often times putting you to shame and belittling you. They can be extremely cold and calculating after. Aquarius is an emotionally distant sign and this emotional distance only increases when they’re angered towards you. The emotional detachment will be so icy cold that it will feel like they are collectively ignoring your entire existence. And they might be…

Since Mars in Aquarius are rather inventive and creative people, this is true when it comes sex. They don’t have the highest sex drive, they are more turned on by the idea of it. Which is why they tend to gravitate towards partners who don’t care for an emotional connection during sex. The experience should be fun for them and creative even. They are down to try new things, are experimental and have an open mind in the approach of sex. A Mars in Aquarius is so “out of the box” that you can never possibly be bored with one. They have a stable approach to life, but not without a few unusual surprises and experiences. They are adventurous and progressive. They are freedom loving and curious. A Mars in Aquarius is the perfect blend of madness and genius. Even if at times they forgot to draw the line between the two.

The walks of the signs

Check your rising (the sign acquaintances see) and midheaven (the sign work bosses/employees and strangers see). Also check your sun and dominant.

Based on experience with others’ sun/rising/midheaven

The walk of an Aries:

When the Ram walks, they do not swing their hands. Their walk may seem quite sloppy, but it is just straight to the point. They stand tall, but not completely upright, and their shoulders are quite relaxed. Aries do not take quick paces, but instead long strides. They are the one mindlessly fixing their hair as they walk. Eyes exploring their surroundings, sometimes Aries seem lost, even when they know exactly where they are going. 

The walk of a Taurus:

They keep their body straight, with their shoulders slightly hunched down. Often, they are fiddling with their belt or sweeping their hair to the side. Their strides are big, and they walk fast. The walk of a Taurus almost seems mechanical. When walking, they are looking at their destination, or whoever is with them. They are the ones to turn around in the middle of a busy hallway, without noticing it is packed, just to tell you about a movie.

The walk of a Gemini:

With almost a swagger in their step, their shoulders are down and back in confidence. Their thumbs may be in their pockets, or hands playing with an object. They walk at a quick pace, with usually quite small steps. Their eyes are usually fixed on the destination, even if talking to someone on the way. The walk of a Gemini almost looks unbalanced, as they may sway slightly come side to side. They are the ones who blindly stop in a crowded doorway.

The walk of a Cancer:

Their walk seems to be in slow-motion, and is usually quite humble. They have relaxed shoulders and an air of softness in each step. They are usually talking to someone when they are walking, but if alone will be minding their own business; maybe playing with their hair. Often their hands have to be still, but doing something; like being in their pockets, or holding a book. In busy hallways, they are snaking through the crowd.

The walk of a Leo:

Very proud. Their shoulders are down, their back in straight, and their chest is puffed out. Their movement is bold, with short steps. Often, they are carrying a folder under one arm. Leo will be set on their destination until something breaks their focus, and their eyes start darting around their location. A Leo may swing their free arm swiftly, their palm faces either up or down. They are either the ones blocking the path, or the ones grumpily trying to get past.

The walk of a Virgo:

Their hands have to be busy; fiddling with a tie, holding books, or holding their hands together. Their steps are short, but their pace is quite quick. They are often looking to the ground and glancing down, only looking up to appreciate the scenery around them. Their shoulders are always relaxed, but either enclosed on themselves or open, depending on how confident the Virgo is in a space. They are the ones navigating through crowds.

The walk of a Libra:

Their walk can be seen as sloppy, but usually it is just because they are very chill. They talk soft-footed small steps, and do not walk very fast. A Libra believes they have all the time in the world to get to their destination. Often engrossed in conversation or thought, Libra is looking around, but never as anything specific. They are the ones who block doorways as they are unaware of their surroundings.

The walk of a Scorpio:

The movement of the Scorpion is swift. It is almost like they have perfectly rehearsed every single movement. They usually have their hands in their pockets or a bag around their arm, with the feet pointed out like a penguin. Watching people, their eyes often fix on individual things, then move onto something new. Scorpio walks at a fast pace and is often conscious of those around them; opening doors and standing to one side in order to not be in the way.

The walk of a Sagittarius:

They are fun and sloppy, often stood straight backed in contrast. The Archer is usually find standing tall, with their chest puffed out so slightly. They use their bodies and gestures boldly, maybe their shoulders move up and down when they laugh, or their whole side turns as they open doors. Blissfully unaware of those around them, Sagittarius may fall into you or stop in front of you quite often.

The walk of a Capricorn:

They have a natural swagger. They may have their fingers curled with one palm pointing to the ceiling, or their feet slightly pointing out. They are very active walkers in this way, as they are always doing something with their hands. Capricorn is notorious for fixing or mindlessly playing with their hair. They may sometimes seem fierce or scary, as they stand and walk quite boldly. Sometimes they block the halls, but this is because if you don’t say “excuse me”, why should they move? 

The walk of an Aquarius:

Aquarius is blind to those around them, merely enjoying those they walk with or any plans they are thinking up. They lean back slightly and walk with a group of friends whenever possible. Often, you will see them subtly swinging an arm back and forth. The Water Bearer often walks with a smile on their face. They may be in the way of people, but they don’t particularly care about that, as you could probably find a different way around.

The walk of a Pisces:

They do not draw much attention towards themselves. They walk alone in peace, or often take a back seat in larger groups. The Fish may have their head to the ground as they take quick and small steps. This individual can often be stopped as they tend to swing their arms. If a Pisces isn’t looking at the ground, they may be seeing looking out to the distance, or examine an on-coming crowd.

the darlings of atlantis

aquarius walks a borderline between genius and madness

pisces teeters between mystic and psychotic, inspiration and insanity, in their own delirium

the water bearer is god in human form

the unbound pisces is formless, omnipresent god. 

the aquarius has an intellectual creativity, they can be drawn to the invisible vibrations of music and sounds, they can make unusual orchestras, 

pisces is taken away, far away, as their fingers hit the keys or their fingers grip the pen, awash with watery creative invigoration, saturating and sensual. neptune is a planet of mist, like you could fall right through it, it’s sometimes like how the pisces seems of vapor and non substance, a ghost walking through walls. the discovery of neptune was clouded with confusion, to this day there is an international dispute about who exactly found the planet

uranus spins on its own axis, orbiting in the unusual aquarius way, the glaring misfit of uranus as maverick as aquarius. uranus is raw individuality, sculpted in crystal eyes, an inspired catalyst

pisces is glamour and illusion, neptune wants to see how much she can fool you, even for a brief moment. from the sea and the sky

aquarius and pisces are floating toward greater ideals, freedom and love and communion for all of humanity. peace and protection. 

Astro Insecurities

Every one of the 12 zodiac signs has a visceral uncertainty that is burrowed behind their carefully constructed camouflage. Whether they are overconfident, overprotective, overly shy, or just plain guarded, here is a list of what the zodiac is trying to hide…

Aries: What If I’m Not a Superhero? Aries feel compelled to verify their bravery with daring acts of recklessness. But the seemingly confident Ram uses heroism to hide the gnawing anxiety that maybe they will never be important enough to make a lasting impression on the world.  

Taurus: Will I Ever Have Enough? Taurus dreads the idea of destitution and emptiness, because being barren makes them feel lonely and inadequate. So the passive Bull seeks out ways to curb the inner hunger for completeness. Still, they wonder if their happiness is entirely quantifiable.

Gemini: Why Can’t I Finish What I Start?  Determined to get a broad understanding of their world, Geminis change course on a constant basis. But the Twins privately chastise themselves for their unfinished business, and ask why the finish line is so hard for them to reach.

Cancer: When Will I Feel Safe? Cancer aches for the day when he or she can overcome their shyness. Crabs hide inside their shell because in it they are out harm’s way. Secretly they hope for a time when they can confidently crawl into the limelight.

Leo: Am I Just Hype? Like a good leader, Leo never lets their morale fade. Instead, the Lion covers up his or her self-doubt with boastful bragging and faithful confidence. But they wonder if underneath it all, they are just one big fat fake self-promotion.

Virgo: Can I Handle It All? Provoked to prove their worth, Virgos take on many overwhelming odd jobs and responsibilities. But the fear of failure, and of never being enough worries the Virgin, who never wants to let down the loved ones who rely on them.

Libra: Why Can’t I Say No? Libra wants total agreement between friends and family to avoid argumentative confrontations. But catering to the needs and wants of others, and attempting to appease everyone in order to gain love leaves the Scales unsure of who they really are.

Scorpio: Am I Going to Get Hurt? Scorpio wants to love and be loved unconditionally in spite of all their eclipsed emotions and dark qualities. So they arm themselves against potential threats that might pierce their defensive armor and fatally wound the naturally untrusting and self-protective Scorpions.

Sagittarius: What Am I Searching For? Sagittarius aims to amass tons of knowledge and experience. But amidst their goal chasing, Centaurs are faced with the reality of their nomadic ways. They know they are meant for something more, but for once, aren’t certain what it is.    

Capricorn: Will I Leave a Legacy? Capricorns stay quiet and concentrated on their concrete goals in hopes of building a respected empire and retiring early. Deeply desiring to contribute to the world, Goats wonder if money and materials are the things they will be remembered for.

Aquarius: Why am I so Different? The world applauds Aquarians for their distinctiveness and detachment. But it is the cause of much shame and embarrassment for Water Bearers who secretly long for a day when they won’t be considered a modern day mutant without a heart.

Pisces: Will I Always Feel Lost? Pisces tries to go with the flow in hopes of being swept away to their higher purpose and true self. But adaptability has Fish questioning whether they will find their own way in this world without the influence of others.

Venus in Aquarius

Unique, Rebellious, Friendly

When Venus enters the free spirited Aquarius, the person is blessed with a friendly and open minded nature. These individuals love to go out and make the world a better place, they are humanitarians after all. However, they posses a sense of quiet confidence. They’re chill and detached.

Even though Venus in Aquarians are emotionally detached, this doesn’t necessarily mean they don’t care. They do have emotions, they just rather not show them. When it comes to relationships and friendships, they never really become too attached to the person. They want someone who can stimulate their mind. They love to explore and share new ideas.

Women with Venus in Aquarius are never afraid to try out different styles that may seem strange or different to others. Venus in Aquarius’ are always the ones to rebel from society’s standards. They have strange interests and they love new music and art. They really are fun, vibrant and extraordinary individuals.

Venus in Aquarians are generally friendly people, but since they are so emotionally distant getting on their bad side is never a good idea. They can become icy cold. To others, they may come off as weird, but there’s a fine line between madness and genius.

"People" Signs

Virgo & Aquarius:

As these two signs are made up of people (The Virgin and The Water bearer) they seem to make up what “humanity” is. Virgo, a healer, and Aquarius, a humanitarian.

Virgo is a healer. Someone who sets standards and begins traditions. Exists in order to bring order, to heal others. They want to help, and so they are capable of helping and aquatinting with anyone.
Aquarius is a humanitarian. Someone who sets out to push those standards set by Virgo and make sure they’re for the benefit of everyone. While Virgo focuses on the Individual, like their detail oriented selves, Aquarius focuses on the big picture, and hopes to make the world a better place for everyone.

A Little Witchy Guide of Candle Magick

I’ve gotten a few questions about candles and candle magick here and there, so I figured I’d make another Little Witchy Guide! If I have left anything out, please let me know! :)
I really hope this helps you and please feel free to ask me any questions of any kind! :D

Candle magic is an ancient art and it is the most widely used magic practiced today. The candle itself is a very powerful magical tool it contains all the basic elements earth, wind, fire and water, earth is represented in the wax, water the melted wax, the flame fire and the air is the smoke. The colour of the candles is very important as the different colours will bring with it its own energy and power, green for healing, red for empowerment etc. Each of the elements has with it its own single coloured candle, green for earth, yellow for air, blue is for water and red is for fire. The different colours also represent either a yin female or yang male energy, yellow is yin, green is yang, blue is yin and red is yang.

A candle is believed to have its own vibration and can be used in meditation and divination, pink or violet is a calm and soft light where as red is strong and powerful, when a candle is lit its colour is released into the surrounding area which will bring a nice energy into the room. If during your ritual you need a lot of power, light multiple candles. By rubbing oil over a candle before your ritual this will charge the candle with your own personal energy.

Magical tips on candles:

  • It’s always a good idea to clean candles, this will strengthen their power.
  • Candles prefer not to be blown out, but to be put out using a toll or wet fingertips, blowing out the candle may insult the element.
  • It is best to use a different candle for each magical purpose, if you are using a red candle for love and a white one for healing, keep them separate.
  • A white candle is symbolic of purity and can be used in place of any other colour.
  • Any candle can be used in your magic, but beeswax candles are more powerful.
  • Engraving a candle is a good way to bring about your wish and by adding a letter of the magical alphabet you will bring mystery and connection to the ancient art of Wicca. A simple example could be to engrave a heart for love and a dollar sign for wealth in your ritual.
  • If a candle goes out whilst you are practicing doing magic, this is a sign, a message.
  • On your birthday when blowing out the candles you perform an act of candle magic. No one really knows where the idea of placing candles on a birthday cake came from, the main possibility is from the ancient Greeks who would bake round cakes in honour of their Moon goddess Artemis, it is said that the Greeks placed candles around the cake to resemble a glowing Moon.
  • Using your own homemade candles will greatly increase their power, candles are very easy to make, you only need to heat wax, add the wick and leave it to cool down then place it into a fire-safe bowl to burn the rest of the way down.
  • Looking into the flame of a candle is the perfect way to regain or strengthen focus .
  • A simple candle ritual is to sit in a darkened room facing a mirror, place the candle in front of you and look at your reflection, let your eyes relax and after a few moments your face will begin to change. Your reflection will reveal what you looked like in your past lives. This magic ritual can also be done with a friend. Both of you sit in a darkened room with a candle between you, and as you look at each other letting your eyes relax, you will see what your friend looked like in their past lives.
  • Some simple yet powerful candle magic is to write your wish on a piece of paper and fold it in half, light one corner with the candle flame and hold the paper as long as you can before the flame reaches your fingers.
  • To charge your candle you can rub essential oil into it, this will add power to your magic, any oil can be used it’s a personal preference.
  • Each of the twelve astrological star signs has a specific colour, you may wish to burn the candle for your star sign to empower yourself and enhance your strengths, or you may like to burn a coloured candle associated with another zodiac sign to empower yourself with the strengths of that sign. You may decide to use the strength, determination and wisdom of Scorpio the scorpion  before an important business meeting.

pisces is represented by the two fish and rules the feet. neptune, the ruler of pisces associates with sedatives and intoxicants. jesus fed fish to the disciples. the 12 disciples (12 zodiacs). we see the fish as a token of christianity - it’s everywhere .. on churches and the back of cars
jesus washed the feet of the poor, ate fish after his resurrection
jesus turned water into wine, and wine is the liquid of pisces/neptune. the correlations go on and on, books could be written about this. this was during the astrological ‘age of pisces’

there is a line in the Gospel of Luke: “A man will meet you carrying an earthen pitcher of water; follow him into the house where he goes in” 22:10. the current aquarian age is symbolised by a water-bearer, it’s like a preparation for jesus to enter the astrological house of aquarius for the new age

the Masonic secrets in symbolic form are reflected through the architecture on the Chartres cathedral. The four Fixed signs of the zodiac encircle the Christ figure at the entrance. it represents the acclaim once directed toward astrology.

Saturn & Uranus Brotherhood

Traditionally, Capricorn & Aquarius were both ruled by Saturn. Later on, once the outer planets were discovered, Aquarius earned its own ruler, Uranus; Pisces and Scorpio also became ruled by additional planets, but the original rulers were associated with these three signs for a reason. Those connections didn’t suddenly disappear after Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto were astrologically acknowledged. Aquarius is still closely tied to Saturn both archetypically & energetically, and since Saturn & Uranus are so different at face value, the “brotherhood” between them is very revealing of deeper meanings.

Saturn is limitation, pain, trials, karma, an endless nightmare of emotional and psychological toil that will teach you and make you worthy; Uranus is the breaking of rules, the crumbling of structures, rebellion against confinement, a vision of boundless emotional and psychological liberation.

Limitation comes before liberation. Saturn is the lifelong explanation, while Uranus is the eureka, a euphoric realization after grueling mental labor. Saturn is the structure, feeling like the four walls of a cell or cage; Uranus is an unfathomable hundredth dimension, making four walls seem like a cattle pasture, not fully enclosed. If we are broken by Saturn, madness follows; but if we learn from Saturn & gain his wisdom, unique creative genius follows. The point is, these planets and their concepts do not exist separately.  Saturn is the jug (solid, hard, heavy) and Uranus is the water (creativity, spirituality, the lifeblood of innovation) which Aquarius, the water-bearer, pours from it.  Saturn came first so it is the structure of Aquarius’ energy, even though Uranus is the purpose, the progress which extends upward from the foundation.

This represents an important development most of us need to make in our own lives, particularly if Aquarius, Saturn, or Uranus are strong in our natal charts. Whether or not Saturn contacts Uranus, they usually present a shared monumental challenge for us to overcome & grow through. Saturn always comes first – we encounter the trial, the lesson, the wound. There is no way around the barrier, we simply have to climb for what can turn out to be our whole lives, trying to reach the top to see what we are meant to be seeing on the other side. Uranus is on the other side. So in the natal chart, Uranus often represents where we must learn to break free rather than where we are already liberated. It’s something that has to be earned and unlocked before it can bear its fruit. We generally have to work & search for Uranus, to make room for it, because we will feel limited, confined, exhausted, terribly punished by having to shrink our originality or expansion in the realm of what Uranus touches until we learn Saturn’s lesson. Saturn’s hardships are trying to break the geode Uranus is trapped within so it can shine. Freedom always has to be fought for; so just as Saturn & Capricorn come before Uranus & Aquarius, the pain of imprisonment will come before the pleasure of prison break.

Moon in Aquarius

Detached, Intellectual, Humanitarian

The Aquarius Moon gives off an intimidating vibe. The most obvious trait about the Aquarius Moon is their emotional detachment. They are always thinking about the greater good for the people and have an unbiased way of thinking. This way of thinking is good… if you’re not on a personal level with them, but for their loved ones, this can be irritating. They are able to differentiate what’s right and what’s wrong, but they’re not able to connect on a personal level. Aquarius Moons need to understand that what’s benefiting others, does not mean it benefits them personally nor their loved ones personally.

Lunar Aquarians are the most detached of all the Moon signs. This is because they view emotions as bothersome and unnecessary. They may not be the most comforting Moon sign; if your emotions do not make sense, Aquarius Moon will be quick to dismiss them.

Aquarius Moons are humanitarians and although they are out of touch with their emotions, they are also very kind people. Funny though, they treat strangers much more nicely than they do people who are close to them. They do love their friends very much though! Friends are practically family to them.

The star-signs in nature
  • {I've had writer's block lately, so I decided to have a go at fixing it by writing a short description of what each star-sign makes me think of}:
  • Aries: Spring. Flowers bloom – a burst of colour splashed across the landscape – and new life springs forth into the world. This is where the ram belongs; the open fields of the rural world, where lambs bleat and foals take their first steps on too-long limbs, where rolling hills of green fill the horizon and new-born life sees the world with fresh, wide eyes.
  • Taurus: The foals, though still so young, take to the wind, galloping and jumping so fast and high they could take flight, the lambs play in their flocks, and the calf with its wet nose and big, lovely eyes chases its brothers and sisters through the field. This is where the bull finds solace; the electric excitement of the wild, fresh life that leaps and bounds around them.
  • Gemini: The twins have hearts of two halves. The sun in all of its blistering heat warming the golden sand beneath your feet as you pad along the beachfront is home, but the twins long for the cool of the night beneath clear skies. They are both the love of a lush light blue of the day and the adoration for the royal velvet blue of the night.
  • Cancer: Summertime in the sun, with waves lapping against white, perfect sand and erasing the footprints in the sand as the crab pads barefoot through the shallows. Everything is lovely and bright, even the sea itself glistens like the richest tanzanite stones – a billion gems shining in the waves – and the sun warms their soul with their every step.
  • Leo: There’s something of a quiet awe found in the sudden burst of a sunrise that, for the lion, can only be rivalled by its sweet, silent sister; Dusk. When the world is wrapped in soft reds and light purples and the birds sing their evening lullabies, the lion’s great heart finds its home.
  • Virgo: A virgin ship christened with a shattered bottle of champagne, a world seen from a new, fresh angle. This is where the Virgo finds the peace they long for: rolling waves and dawns reflected in a billion shattered pieces over the water’s surface. The open air of the ocean and the leaping of dolphins as they escort the ship through the sea. This is where Virgo finds love.
  • Libra: Balance can be found in many things. It can be found in the circle of life and in the stark contrast between day and night. This is where Libra is at home. In the mountains, where the sun glistens over the snowy peaks, or in the woods where beautiful wildflowers bloom only in the dark.
  • Scorpio: There’s a sort of perfection that Scorpio can find wrapped in burnt orange blankets and watching as pink marshmallows melt into their hot chocolate. Long, cosy sweaters and fur-lined boots cradle the soul of the Scorpio as they listen to the leaves crunch underfoot and see the world become a sunburst of reds and oranges around them.
  • Sagittarius: The archer finds peace in the wilderness. Peace is in the trees stretching their ancient limbs up into the air and bats flapping their leathery wings and singing their strange lullabies to the darkness. To the archer, life is breathing cool, crisp night air beneath whorls of stars and galaxies smattered like paint across the night skies.
  • Capricorn: Capricorn is the heart of winter, finding love in the freshly fallen snow and delight in the crunch of boots through the carpet of white. They are the clouds of breath in the cold, the feel of wool wrapped around you, cocooning you from the icy weather and thermal socks that make your feet look like little arctic foxes.
  • Aquarius: Like atlas holds aloft the sky with his mighty strength, the water-bearer carries a weight of their own. They too feel the chill of the season, but their soul longs for the icy waters of the ocean where the waves whip and lash like wild horses against the bit and the foam is the soul of the beasts that dwell below.
  • Pisces: Where one takes solace in the wide open spaces of the ocean, Pisces’ heart lies further inland where the rivers are nothing more than a rapid, rippling brook where the water flows over stone and shapes the very land around it. Where fish leap and birds flit and deer dance in the shallows. That’s the soul of the Pisces.
