supermoon in gemini is full of energy: a moon of communication / listening, illumination of our consciousness, synergy, expressing & transcending emotions or energies that have been floating within you, & healing with the airiness of gemini.
the sun is in sagittarius (sign polarity); sagittarius is of the higher mind–the spiritual & intuitive self–and gemini is logical & instinctual. this is a good time to balance the self, to connect to yourself deeply with non-judgment. when you’re mindful of feelings, both logical & spiritual, you can express yourself effectively. the full moon opposes saturn (fear / control) and squares with chiron (the wounded healer); explore deep emotions, not to incite suffering, but to enlighten yourself on the need to release them & let go–versus controlling them–in order to let light in. other planetary positions in libra (balance) & aquarius (the future) offer peacefulness.
this is the last full moon of the year & it is the most opportune time to connect deeply to oneself, heal & detach from that which no longer serves you, let go of negative emotions & energy, express oneself, connect with others, find balance, & focus on the future with positivity 💫
‘Why do Feysand and Rowaelin not get treated exactly the same way in the narrative/look exactly the same/why does Rhys do some things Rowan doesn’t/why is Rowan allowed to do some things that the narrative addresses with Rhys and points out that they’re not good’? repeat forever.
Because there is not one model of a good/healthy relationship. It does not work Feyrhys = healthy; everything else = toxic.
Because women are not carbon copies of one another. We have different tastes. We have different likes. We have different needs in a relationship. We are our own individual people and we need our partners to respond to our personal preferences, likes, and dislikes and not simply have someone behave exactly the same way to every single person they’re with.
Feyre dislikes feeling smothered or not having her full freedom and independence. As such, when the mating bond snaps into place between her and Rhys, Rhys carefully explains to her why he feels protective and territorial and that he is working to stop doing that. Because she has been in an abusive relationship before where someone has done these things to an unhealthy leveland is uncomfortable with any minor repetition of them. Rhys addresses her personal concerns and her personal needs and that is why the narrative picks this out and unpicks it and explains it with Rhys but not with Rowan.
Aelin is a completely different character with a completely different backstory, a completely different set of insecurities and a completely different set of needs and Rowan responds to them. Aelin does not have a problem with Rowan being territorial or protective over, not in the way Feyre does. It might be a vague annoyance sometimes (AT THE VERY MOST) and even then she’s dismissive of it and it amuses her and it is never taken too far to the point that it restricts her freedom/the choices she can make/the things that she can do. And she is not in any way triggered by it as she has not experienced the same kind of abuse that Feyre has.
Territorial behaviour of the kind that comes natural to the fae is not in itself abusive/unhealthy. Protectiveness over the people that you care about is not in itself unhealthy/abusive. What would be unhealthy would be to expect men to treat every single woman he meets/is with exactly the same way because it suits one single woman. That is reductive and frankly insulting.
I have no doubt that Rhys would behave differently with Aelin and that Rowan would behave differently with Feyre because they are individual people with individual needs and desires and expecting Aelin to be treated the same as Feyre because this is apparently the only standard of a healthy relationship is frankly a little bit misoygnistic because, shock horror, not all women think the same/feel the same/like/dislike the same things. Isn’t that amazing? It’s as though we’re real people who know what we like and don’t like and expect the people closest to us to respect that and respond accordingly. Incredible.
TL;DR Stop comparing Feyrhys and Rowaelin. Especially if the purpose of this is to say ‘Rhys does x, this is good for Feyre and makes their relationship healthy. Rowan does not do x, therefore this is bad for Aelin and makes their relationship unhealthy’ because, newsflash, that’s not the way it works.
There is no one way to have a good, positive relationship. In fact that thinking in itself is unhealthy. Different people have different needs and their partners should therefore behave differently so suit those needs, not just mirror another’s behaviour because it has been deemed ‘The Most Healthy And Appropriate Way To Behave With Women’. Because. Guess what? Not all women are going to want/respond well to that and you ignoring their needs and wants in order to try and fulfil this idealistic idea of a perfect relationship is not healthy. Rowan is responding to what Aelin personally wants/needs/feels comfortable with. He is not Rhys, he does not behave like Rhys and that is completely okay because Aelin is not Feyre and does not need him to do that for her.
When I was younger, my mind was always inexplicably dark and melancholic because I couldn’t stand myself. I craved visual beauty, and looking at beautiful art was a way of healing myself. Design, architecture, art, etc - all of these beautiful things lit up my eyes, mind and soul. This has always been true: art heals me, revives me and keeps me alive. Art gives me a motivation to persevere.
It has been said, ‘time heals all wounds.’ I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone. ― Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy
this is just a little spec fic I wrote after tonight’s episode. i’m very sleepy and this is very un-beta-ed, but enjoy!
This wasn’t the first time.
The first time someone had tried to break him.
Physically, mentally, emotionally, he had endured so much in
his life, by now he should be numb.
How much easier would it be for him if he just didn’t feel
He had lost track of the days he had spent chained up in
this cold, dark room. The hours he was alone were almost harder than Adrian’s
visits because the only company he had was the words of his captor echoing in
his mind, imprinting themselves as truths, continuing his torture.
Old wounds that had never fully healed had been reopened,
not just the ones currently dripping blood all over the concrete he was laying
on, but deep emotional ones that had been hastily patched up underneath
whatever crisis was more of a priority that year than giving them time to heal.
Adrian knew everything about him, knew where to twist the knife to make him
scream, to haunt him with memories he had tried to forget.
He knew his teammates were looking for him, knew they
wouldn’t stop until they found him, but every minute he spent here made him
more afraid that time had run out, that Adrian had gotten to them, one by one,
before they got to him.
The sound of the metal door scraping the floor caused every
muscle in his body to tense up in preparation for whatever blow would be
delivered to him this time. Would it be the one that finally shattered him?
Lifting his head ever so slightly, he saw in the dim light through
his blurred vision a sight that made his breath catch in his throat.
She rushed forward, collapsing to the floor beside him and
gently cradling his head in her hands.
“We need to hurry,” John’s voice reached his ears. “Adrian
could be back any minute now and we need to get you two on your way.”
