The Signs as Mermaids

Aries:Born in an underwater volcano, their scales are made of freshly formed stone, their heated bodies glowing a brilliant red and orange. The fastest swimmers, and some say the oldest lineage of mer. They have no natural enemy, as nothing can bare the heat of its touch. When too many gather in one place, the water may boil and kill any living creature too close.
Taurus:Guardians of the strait, their bodies decorated with tribal tattoos and scars. Some bare spears and brilliant gold armor, others wielding nets and dawning decorative gems and shells. The strongest of the mer, no man has ever passed their lands to learn their secrets.
Gemini:When the sky over the sea turns black and the storms take ships by surprise, these mer rise. The tricksters and shapeshifters, they thrive in the chaos. They board the confused ship, throwing over and assuming the forms of shipmates. From there they slowly overthrow from the inside, until they can crash the ship itself into to sea for the mer to reap their rewards.
Cancer:The rarest and most beautiful of the mer. Hiding in springs and rivers nestled deep in the mountains, they live their lives as one with nature. They teach the birds their songs, and bring fish for the bear and deer. They help the beavers build their dams and show lost turtles the way. On the full moon they must hide, for man seeks them for their own selfish gain.
Leo:These mer are known for their hunting prowess. Living in saltwater and decorated in bright vivid greens, blues and purples, they dominate entire lagoons and coasts. When they are full from the hunt, they lay their bodies out on the rocks and bathe in the sun. By nightfall, they are glowing and can light up the murkiest parts of the water to find their prey.
Virgo:In unsuspecting ponds across the world, a fisherman may meet his brutal end at the hands of these mer. Rich brown, thin and boney, their bodies are perfect creating elaborate underground tunnels and rooms. They eat their prey, and take their treasures back to their secret lairs. Here they trade and barter with one another in one large room. Lore says this is the world’s oldest market place. Their unspoken diplomacy is unexplained.
Libra:Living by a tall sharp cliff nested full of harpies, these mer have developed a symbiotic relationship. Storms bring ships off the sea, where the harpies kill the crews leaving the ships to crash into the rocks and sinking. These mer seize this chance and collect every jewel and gold they can find. They construct elaborate jewelry, crowns, spears, and more. Once a year they gift beautiful pendants to their partners in the sky.
Scorpio:Baring a striking resemblance to a shark with long pointed fins and sharp sandpaper like skin, this mer lurks in dark lagoons and swamps. They have a reputation as ‘evil’ and were once almost hunted into extinction. Ever since they have lived solitary lives in the waters man dare not tread. In all reality, they are herbivores, and pose no threat to man or beast. Contrary, they will do anything they can to save a lost or wounded soul.
Sagittarius:Every year thousands of humans gather to watch the mass migration of mer up the rivers of South America. Their scales are a radiant Grey that reflects the rainbow in the light. The light show that they create as they jump hundreds of feet to scale waterfalls is an equal match to the aurora borialis. Once they reach their goal, they find their mates for the first time, hand in hand one week later they dive off the falls back into the sea.
Capricorn:Deep in a trench lies a civilization of the most technologically advanced mer to ever live. While man was discovering fire, they were cresting technology to leave the ocean and fly through the skies in water filled disc ships. They have no need to leave, they as a race have reached a point of enlightenment. Fitting for their gold scales and glowing white eyes. Sightings of these mer are often equated with meeting a God.
Aquarius:Sewer mer are the most unique of the species. They have no eyes, instead they navigate with echo location making clicking noises. Their skin can blend into its surroundings, so they can catch humans unsuspectingly passing by. As evolution has taken its course, they have gained an immunity to disease, poison, and a skin impenetrable by most mortal means. They will not always live in the dark and dank, the future will be theirs, and man will fall to their power. All in due time.
Pisces:The most well known mer are the oasis born. Why? Long ago, a prince found himself lost in the desert, he and his two men pulling a giant box of gold. With their mortality in front of them, an oasis appeared on the horizon as if a gift from the heavens. Perched on a rock in the very center, braiding her hair and humming to herself sat the most beautiful half woman half fish. This was the first time one of his people had seen any mer. He asked her to come back with him, pouring all his gold into the oasis and filling it with water so she could make the journey home with her guidance. She agreed. He died the first night they were wed, and so did his father both of a mysterious disease. She ruled the land with a fair but iron fist for 146 years until she once day dissappeared, some say to return to her gold filled oasis.

The signs in the middle of the night aesthetic
  • Aries: Walking down a dim street with the few people clearing out of work, you can hear far away chatter and music from bars, the feeling of being alive and human is so prominent you feel like dancing in the street, in the silence and far away background noise.
  • Taurus: Laying on a picnic blanket with a pet of some sort, watching the stars twinkle above, hearing the crickets all around you the way the trees are softly blowing, there is not a care in the world in your body at that moment.
  • Gemini: Eating ice cream at a 24 hour burger joint, watching the few people trickle in and out, the heaviness of night upon you, a flickering light across from you and the sweet giggles of a couple next to you, you've never felt happier sitting outside eating ice cream.
  • Cancer: At the beach, your feet dip in the sand and the stars lighting the world up, you can hear the ocean so clearly as though it got louder for you, every now and then it brushes against your toes and leaving you warm and content in this world.
  • Leo: Out with friends, standing outside of a club or a party, with the streets bright with lamps and the folk around outside drinking and talking loudly, the music indoors trickles out and the fresh cool air feels soft and sweet, and you feel entirely at ease.
  • Virgo: Perched on a rooftop with the wind blowing your hair everywhere and the coolness of night taking your whole body over, you can hear a wolf howling in the distance, but otherwise the world is silent and for once you feel so quiet and peaceful.
  • Libra: On a boat with a lover and the water is still and the moon is bright and heavy over you, you feel dewy and new and the air is moist and yet cold, you can smell the last rain and the world feels so clear and beautiful.
  • Scorpio: Laying in the middle of an empty road, music buzzing around somewhere far off and your eyes glued to the deep blue sky, feeling the hard ground below and the chill in your body from the delight of being out in the night, immersed in the sky.
  • Sagittarius: Sitting on a patio with a friend, wrapped in a giant blanket swapping crazy stories back and forth and feeling the warmth in the pit of your stomach from friendship, the moon lighting your faces and giving you the feel of eerie peace.
  • Capricorn: Sitting in a soft chair letting the moon light your face, feeling the relaxation of not doing anything, the sweet crisp air coming in from your open window and the absolute peace that flows through your body.
  • Aquarius: Drawing with glow in the dark chalk, on the middle of an empty road, creating a masterpiece for the world to see, humming along with crickets in the bushes and feel ease and comfort and loving to have a little time alone, and not caring a bit about what the rest of the world is doing.
  • Pisces: Snuggled in bed with a giant pillow and unable to sleep because the moon is so wide and bright and your eyes are glued to it, the beautiful stars winking at you and the happy feeling of being included in the night, of almost being a part of the skies show. The dancing stars and the glowing moon, and there you are included in it all.

For two weeks each year, the termite mounds on the Brazillian Cerrado light up the night. The source of these lights are not the termites, but headlight beetle larvae. The larvae live inside the outer part of mound, only emerging during the few weeks each year when male and female termites take flight. The glowing bodies of the larvae draws the termites like moths to a flame, allowing the larvae to grab and devour them. The larvae collects as many termites as they can and place them in their larder within the mound, which needs to last until the next flying season. This very limited availability of food means that it takes two years for the larvae to turn into adult beetles.

Maneuvering Around Negativity: a Visualization Exercise

Witches, we all deal with the stress of negativity in our lives.  Whether it be criticism, bullying, hurtful opinions, or even our own toxic outlook–all of these things make up a dark sea of negativity.  How do we maneuver through through the barbs and stings, and come out undamaged?

This is a technique called outcome visualization.  It involves envisioning yourself achieving your goal. To do this, create a detailed mental image of the desired outcome using all of your senses.  You can use this technique to help aid in you many of your goals, but for this one in particular, we are focusing on bypassing all the negativity in our lives.

YOU’LL NEED:

–3 minutes

–a quiet place

–this song (”To the Order of Night” by Balmorhea)

1.  Find a quiet place and get comfortable.  I suggest laying bed to give you the sensation of floating.  I have also used this visualization exercise in my bathtub.  Grounding isn’t important here.  Just make sure you are centered and shielded.  Draw in a few deep breaths.  Turn on the music.

2.  Shut your eyes and say aloud:  Endless sea allow me to see only joyful positivity.  Repeat it.  I usually chant it around 10-15 times.  As you are chanting, imagine yourself being submerged underwater.  Don’t be afraid.  In this sacred space, you are in no danger.

3.  Begin to visualize sinking deep into the depths of the water.  It is first murky, then dark, turning pitch black.  Every limb grows cold; muscles spasm and then freeze.  There is nothing around you, except this feeling of weightlessness.  This is the negativity you allow to surround you. 

Then, there is a spark of faint pink light.  Slowly, as if blooming over a horizon, more specks of that light grow.  You can see what they are as you swim closer.  Jellyfish, hundreds of them, illuminate the darkness that surround you.  They are beautiful, but they are dangerous.  These represent the words, opinions, criticisms, and thoughts that sting you.  These creatures gracefully swim around you and every time you move, you bump into them and you can feel their paralyzing barbs.

Above you, the sun is shimmering.  It’s calling you to the surface, but you know if you try to kick and swim your way to the top, you’ll never make it.  All the jellyfish are in the way.  You feel your lungs tighten.  You become nervous.

But then you remember, as long as you don’t touch them, they can’t sting you.  Much like the negativity from others, if we ignore it, it cannot harm us.  If we don’t allow it inside, it cannot plant seeds of doubt and insecurity.  We will wade our entire lives in shores of both negativity and positivity; it is the natural balance that is struck by the universe.  The time is now to decide if you will sink or swim.

You watch the jellyfish move.  They dance in the water towards one another in an endless parade of flourishes and spins, creating holes where you can slip through.  You avoid their barbs.  You feel the rush of maneuvering around their glowing bodies.  For every foul word spoken about you or to you, you remain unaffected.  You share this space with them, but pay no mind to their own goals.  Among the jellyfish, you rise.

Break through the water’s surface.  Take in your first deep breath.  The sun greets you, the water embraces you, and below you, in those murky depths lies all the dwellers of the dark deep that don’t care to face the sun.  Leave them behind and rise.  The current has other plans for you.

4.  Take ten calming breaths and release yourself from the visualization.  You’ve now maneuvered through the negativity.  You can let go, you can move on.  And when you feel yourself start to slip under the water, remember that you can always find your way back to the surface.

One day you will wake up and everything, the stones by the driveway, the brick houses, each brick, each leaf of each tree, your own body, will be glowing from within, lit up, so bright you can hardly look. You will reach out in any direction and you will touch the light itself.
—  Margaret Atwood, from Murder in the Dark: Stories; “Instructions for the Third Eye,
Honestly? I can’t wait to have kids.
I can’t wait to watch my wife try and slowly manipulate her glowing body out of my car as we make our way to the ultra sound appointment.
I can’t wait to pull a small piece of paper out of my pocket that has about 300 questions I have to ask our doctor.
I can’t wait until the doctor tells me google exists and I will be just fine.
I can’t wait to stand in the book store carrying more “how to” books than necessary to the cash register. Looking both bewildered and enamoured as my wife shakes her head with embarrassment at my intense excitement.
I can’t wait to hear her tired voice ask me for Pringles and peanut butter.
I can’t wait to be laying on her belly and feel a small foot on the side of my head.
I can’t wait to see my beautiful wife standing in the mirror rubbing me stomach slightly concerned.
I can’t wait to reach my hands around and pull her in tight and whisper how utterly stunning she is. How unbelievably lucky I am. How unbelievably lucky our “little guy is.”
I can’t wait to discuss who’s genes you’re going to get. Argue over who’s nose we hope you have.
I can’t wait to hear the “it’s time.”
I can’t wait to be next to her, holding her hand. I know she’ll tell me she can’t do it. But I damn well know she can. She will be the strongest bravest person I know.
I can’t wait to hear your cries as you breath into this world.
I can’t wait to look down at my wife, exhausting, but glowing. She’ll be looking at you. But I’ll be looking at the two of you. No moment will ever match this. No moment will ever feel so accomplishing. So important. As to when I see my family together for the first time.
Honestly? I can’t wait to have kids.
I’m so excited to hear uncoordinated footsteps fill the hallways of my home. Followed by high pitched laughed filled screams and the voice of my wife shouting “I’m gunna getcha!”
I can’t wait to pull you both close onto my lap as I read the same bed time story I’ve read every single night for the past month.
Watch both of your chests rise and fall together as your breath becomes rhythmic.
I can’t wait to sit on that couch with you both asleep in my lap not wanting to move because no matter how tired, how uncomfortable I am. For god sakes I couldn’t look away if I tried.
There are so many things in this world I look forward too. But this lifetime I’m going to get to create? I am so excited for.
—  I can’t wait to meet you.

🌹get under the covers. turn on something - tv, a movie, music, anything distracting. or consider calling a friend or talking to anyone nearby, even your sibling the next room over!!

🌙know that you are loved. you are important. you mean more than you know right now, more than you will maybe ever know. you are worth all the stars in the sky. you deserve to feel good. 😘

Bearded fireworm (Hermodice carunculata)

The bearded fireworm is a type of marine bristleworm belonging to the Amphinomidae family, native to the tropical Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. Bearded fireworms are usually 15 cm in average length, but can reach up to 30 cm. At first glance, this fire worm looks like a centipede with its elongated and flattened appearance, multiple segments, white silks, and parapodia and gills located on the side of its body. Its colors are varied and range from greenish, to yellowish, to reddish, grayish through white with a pearly glow. The body consists of 60 to 150 identical segments separated from each other by a thin white line and protected by cuticles. Each segment has a pair of parapodia, a structure for locomotion, clusters of stinging white bristles, and red or orange gills all in bilateral position. The bearded fireworm is a voracious predator and feeds on dead or decaying organisms and coral polyps.

if you can't handle the heat... | m

◇ if you can’t handle the heat, get out of the kitchen… or stay to watch~

◇ Wonwoo x reader x Mingyu

◇ werewolf!au

◇ requested by anon; Can I request a werewolf!AU with poly meanie? I am honestly down for those at any time and absolutely in love with the fics that you have written!

◇ so I finally decided to do a poly!wolf!meanie that wasnt angst!! Amazing!!! Also i found that my past fics were somehow more wonwoo centred for some reason (i know the reason, I’m a wonwoo hoe), so i made this one a lil more mingyu centred // its abit short too but i hope u guys still enjoy!!

◇ So this has some characteristics of a/b/o, such as heat, but its different in that while there are alphas betas and omegas, not every wolf is one of the three. So basically a regular werewolf au just with the added heat!

◇ Warnings bc i always forget: voyeurism, knotting, kitchen sex, overall smuttiness????

•••

Summer meant lots of things — it meant rainbow popsicles and sand sticking to your legs and the blistering heat pressing against your skin like the weight of the world.

It meant taking a day away from the world and driving to God knows where just to drive — it meant running out of sunscreen within a day because Mingyu needed adequate skin protection, or walking halfway across the city to get Wonwoo’s favourite ice cream even though you feel as if you’re about to melt onto the sidewalk.

And, unfortunately — or fortunately, depending on your mood — for you, it also meant a week long heat that included feeling light-headed, cranky, sick, and aroused in waves 24/7 — well, until your needs were fulfilled and you were knotted.

Your heats started at around 16, just a few years ago, and up until you met Wonwoo and Mingyu, you had just let the stomach aches and constant dizziness and arousal pass and fade. But as time passes, the waves of symptoms get stronger and more painful until you literally couldn’t function — which is why you were particularly lucky for having Mingyu and Wonwoo.

Your first wave takes you by surprise, because it’s early.

Grounding Method for Cosmic Witches

Originally posted by saliechelon255

🌙 Figure out your intent or goal and what corresponding planets, stars, constellations, etc are to your intent/goal. You may also use herbs, crystals, essential oils, etc along with the celestial bodies of your choice. Choose which ones you think or what your gut thinks is best for you. If your gut says you don’t need that, then don’t use it.

🌙 Get in a comfortable position. Normally sitting criss-cross or laying on your back. Surround yourself with the herbs,essential oils, or crystals of your choice.

🌙 Close your eyes and take deep breaths in and out. Try your best to clear your mind.

🌙 Now for visualization, a large hole in the ceiling appeared or the entire ceiling is gone. Your celestial body(bodies) glide over the open hole or ceiling. If you chose more than one CBs, they can glide over in one at a time, in small clusters or one large cluster. Imagine that the CB(s) stop directly over you and that they start to send down their energy in a beam of light. Now, your body starts to fill up with light near the third eye chakra (in between the eyebrows) and the crown chakra (the top of the head) then from those chakras, energy starts flowing through your body, making your entire body glow brighter and brighter over time. While all of this is happening, thank the CBs for their energy,

🌙 This next step of visualization is imagining what would happen after your goal. What does it look like? What does it sound like? What does it feel like, emotionally and/or physically? What would it smell like? You can think of any smell that fills your intent. What would it taste like? You can think of any flavor that fills your intent. After you’ve visualized all of your gaols’s five senses, you can stop meditation.

🌙 You’re ready to use your energy for divination!
