change like the seasons

anonymous asked:

hello! Can you talk about december 3rd full moon?

With the sun in Sagittarius and the moon in Gemini, this full moon illuminates knowledge itself. Discoveries of all kinds will be made. Throughout the Gemini moon transit, it will aspect many planets – at scattered points in time, it’ll oppose the sun, Venus, Saturn, & Mercury, it will sextile Uranus, and it will quincunx Jupiter & Pluto. This brings about a monumental stirring of energies. We will learn a lot about our path & direction, our circumstances, ourselves; we may have an epiphany of some sort, feel a burst of intellectual vigor and inspiration and wisdom; we’ll uncover secrets which Pluto can no longer conceal from the curiosity of Gemini and which Jupiter in Scorpio willingly exposes under a harsh microscope, we will dig into unknown territories and explore possibilities that may have seemed insane to us earlier this year. We may be able to assert parts of ourselves that we have always tried to keep hidden, to liberate a new aspect of our identities and bring sensitive subjects into light with bravery, to pave a new path for ourselves. We may also be exposed unwillingly and crucified for what is revealed. We may go our separate ways with people we thought would be with us for a while, after discovering or coming to terms with an irreconcilable difference or unhealable wound. The inner self goes to battle with many strong outer forces so it’s more likely that we’ll all be faced with an unbearable choice and be at odds with our surroundings (people & situations alike). It’s probably one of the most intense full moons I’ve seen in a while, actually. I get the sense that there’s going to be a chaotic event that spurs an imperative decision.

im sentimental. i sleep a lot. sometimes i cry a little on public transport. when my friends tell me they love me, i feel as though my heart will burst. i take pictures of nice dogs i see on the street. i notice the changing of the seasons, and i get excited. i like fresh fruit. little things make me happy, and i hope i stay this way.

that small moment of sadness because even if you miss being Voltron’s leader you are immensely proud of what Keith has become

bonus: Keith not having any of it because he knows Shiro belongs with Black

WHY I LOVE U

Venus in Aries: I heard your laughter before I saw you. And then I couldn’t take my eyes off you. And after everyone had gone home we were still running around, or you were running I was just trying to keep up. You work hard, play hard and love even harder, but you like to try on a couple of sizes before you find the right fit. It’s the way you make me laugh at the most ludicrous things, the way you know exactly what you want and are not afraid to go and get it. You make me feel like anything is possible. Our love was like a tickle war turned makeout session, and I still remember the heat when our skin touched. There will never be anyone like you. 

Venus in Taurus: Being with you is like coming home. Like a perfect dream. Like lavender candles and cuddling up to a marathon of our favourite show. You kissing me between every episode. You don’t like playing games and you don’t like being rushed when falling in love. You take your sweet time, worshipping my body and my mind so my heart can’t help but follow. I remember those lazy Sundays, strolling through the furniture store, your hand in mine and we would pretend to decorate our future house. But all we came out with were more lavender candles and a burning lust for each other. You turn the mundane into something truly magical. 

Venus in Gemini: You drive me crazy, I never know where we stand. We spend the most incredible nights together and then I don’t hear from you in forever. Maybe that’s your style, you wanna look me in the eyes and not read my words on your phone. We sit for hours and people watch, making up backstories for them. When I’m with you I have no sense of time, all I can think about is your mischievous smile and the way you play with my hair. Your love is all-consuming, like nothing in the world matters to you more. With you my sense of reason is completely clouded, I’m yours for the night and every other night. If you’ll have me. 

Venus in Cancer: My hero, my sensitive babe. Your heart on your sleeve, that look in your eyes and I was yours forever. When you kissed me I could see our lives flashing before my eyes. Sitting on opposite sides of the sofa. Your nose in a book but your hand on me, like you needed to be connected to me or else you’d die. Every time you catch me staring at you I can’t help the grin on my face. You are fragile and strong, creating this protective space around us where we can just be together. I love how you’re not afraid of your feelings, and how you already named our kids even though we need to discuss it lol. You make it feel so real, like you are the missing piece of the puzzle. 

Venus in Leo: I remember the first time I met you, it all happened so fast. At a party, my friend introducing you and before I knew it your arms were around me. I remember melting into your hug, and the electricity in the air when we finally let go. Everyone else thought it was weird but we both knew, there was no turning back. Being with you feels like running through a field of flowers, faster and faster. Your laughter and your moans echo in my head. My legs feel like giving out but your hand refuses to let go of mine. It’s that smile after you say something clever, and they way you make me feel like it’s just me and you versus the world. I don’t think I’ve ever felt this loved. 

Venus in Virgo: You make me feel whole. Driving down the freeway blasting our songs, I can’t sing but you don’t care. Your hand on the stick shift and for some reason I got all hot inside. It’s the way you wrap your arms around me at the checkout line, like I’m yours and you don’t care who knows. You’re thoughtful and observant, you make me feel like I matter to you. And it’s not an act, you are actually that kind. I’m trying so hard to describe you, but all I can think about is that night when my family fell apart. You drew a bath with bubbles and you held me until the water went cold. Then we ate raspberries (my favourite) and watched Modern Family. And then you loved me until I didn’t feel like I was falling apart anymore. I think that describes you more than words ever could. You’re the one I see sitting next to me on our porch doing a crossword puzzle, in our old bodies. But it doesn’t scare me because your spirit is forever young. 

Venus in Libra: Being in love with you is so easy. Our first date was to the movies. You gave me a red poppy and held my hand the entire time, gently playing with my fingers. My heart was about to beat out of my chest but somehow I was calm, because you were. I love the way you talk so easy, with that breezy confidence. Like you’d never tell me a lie. The way you were charming and kind to everyone from the bus driver to the server at the pizza shop. After talking to each other all night in the park, it was the only place that was still open. My mum still asks about you. I think she loved you more than I did, and that’s saying something. 

Venus in Scorpio: God, the way you tear me apart and then put me back together. Over and over again. You of all people know that life isn’t always chocolates and roses. You’re not afraid of the ugliness of human nature, instead you try to find the silver lining, the beauty in the madness. You demand that I’m honest with you, and in turn you trust me with your own secrets. It created a bond beyond love, or maybe it was love. It just felt different, like it was based in reality and not a love story. You’ve seen me at my worst and still think I’m beautiful, because you see people’s souls. Nobody can hide their true nature from you for you are an expert of reading between the lines. Your animalistic passion penetrates deep, and everything becomes a haze of lust and obsession. Because if you’re not obsessed it’s just not worth it. I would trust you with my life, because you would sacrifice your own for the one you love. 

Venus in Sagittarius: We had just gotten comfortable on the top of the mountain we climbed when you hit me with “Do you think out of seven billion that some people have the same personality?” And you packed my favourite sandwich, tomato, mozzarella and basil. A moment of breathless kisses and triumph. Your strength made me feel strong too, and your devotion made my heart swell. You never stand still but it doesn’t matter, because you take me with you and always make sure I’m alright. You make me feel included, showing me off and introducing me to all your friends. I’ve never felt more proud than when I’m standing next to you. When you told me how much you loved me I knew it was true. 

Venus in Capricorn: The true romantic. What drew me in was that calm stare, you looked like trouble I swear I was gonna faint on the spot. You could keep up with me, and when you took my hand and said “Trust me?” I somehow believed you. But what made me fall for you was how you kept all your promises. Your presence is honest and true, the way you make me feel like I would never be alone, like I would always have a friend. I love falling asleep in your arms to your heartbeat. You’re gentle with me, I can feel your love in every touch. Your love made me believe I could do anything, because I knew you would stick by my side. If I asked you to. 

Venus in Aquarius: Keep it cool, that’s how you roll. Almost untouchable, but you let me touch you. It was like the seasons changed in seconds. You finished that last drop of champagne and said “Let’s get wet”, then we jumped in the pool. And then you kissed me. It felt like breathing underwater, I don’t even think you live in the same world as the rest of us. I texted you at 2 a.m. and you didn’t hesitate. Trapped between your body and the wall, your lips on my neck and I was already in heaven. I never thought you loved me back, until you showed up on my doorstep, whiskey on your breath and tears in your eyes. After that I never doubted you, because I knew then that your love was more than words. 

Venus in Pisces: With you it’s all about the moment, and moments with you are plush and whimsical. Like sitting on a cloud. You are still the only person to ever write me a poem. And when you asked me if I liked it, how you let me see your vulnerable side even though the look in your eyes was sheer terror, you were brave. I was at loss for words so I just kissed you deeply. You see the beauty in the little things, like asking me about what I dreamt last night or giving me cupid earrings so they could whisper sweet nothings in my ear when you’re not around. Your love is poetic, you actually think of me and what makes me happy. Whenever you see something that reminds you of me you always let me know. I can’t help but think how lucky I am to be so cherished.

tldr: Lance is perfect for the Red Lion because he fills Red’s role as the right-hand for Keith in a way Keith never did for Shiro.

I always wondered why The Black Lion’s wings were red, but after seeing Lance as the Red Lion and Keith as Black it makes a lot more sense to me now. 

As we know, Red becomes the right arm/hand of Voltron. However, it wasn’t until this season that Red’s placement held much significance (at least to me). Originally, I believed, and it was pretty much implied, that Lions chose their pilots based on their personalities. Here’s Allura describing Red:

“It’s faster and more agile than the others, but also more unstable. Its pilot needs to be someone who relies more on instincts than skill alone.”

Keith epitomizes that description completely, so it initially makes sense that he would pilot the Red Lion based on the information we were given at the time. Keith, however, was only ever Shiro’s right-hand in the physical form of Voltron. In all other circumstances, Shiro never really had a right-hand or second. When Shiro was the lead paladin, the team dynamic was more along the lines of Shiro being the leader and the other four following equally. Yes, his bond with Keith is clearly the strongest, and they depend on each other. But often, Keith would make irrational decisions and Shiro would just let him do what he wanted to do, which isn’t something a leader should do. And there was never any guidance or logical support coming from Keith to Shiro. A right-hand/second has the role of not only supporting the leader but of guiding and questioning the leader to keep him on the right path for the team, which is a role Keith almost never filled.

When Alfor created the Lions, he let Zarkon take Black claiming that he was better as Zarkon’s right hand, basically Zarkon’s second:

Since Alfor designed and built the lions himself, I have a feeling that it was intentional that the Red Lion be a second to Black. This brings me back to the wings. 

Considering the aesthetic of the Lions, the wings should be either black or white. It’s even logical that they could be purple, as that’s the color of Black’s light trail. But they’re red, which only makes sense when you consider the symbolism of the wings themselves. Wings support flight. Therefore, I believe that Alfor made the wings red to symbolize the support that the Red Paladin gives the Black Paladin as Black’s right-hand. And as I mentioned previously, there is a responsibility on the right-hand that Keith doesn’t fill. However, while Keith is Black and Lance is Red, Lance very much fills that role, and technically he has since the beginning of the show.

Lance is a thinker. He’s goofy, yes, but his antics seem more and more to be about concealing doubt as we learn more about him. Often he shows doubt in himself like we see when he goes to Keith’s room to talk after Shiro returns, but he also second guesses pretty much everyone’s motives and decisions at one point or another. This is especially seen with Keith. Since the beginning Lance has challenged Keith, at first it seemed to come from a place of immaturity/insecurity:

But later we see him challenging Keith’s choices. Like in this scene from season 2:

While I am sure some of this is still coming from Lance’s insecurities around Keith, he makes a very valid point about Keith’s rationale. As we see here, and in other instances like this, Lance is putting a lot more thought into the choices that Keith is making and calling him out when he truly believes Keith is making a bad decision. This is a quality that a leader wants and, more importantly, needs in a second. And this quality really shines in season 3 when Keith is the leader. Throughout the season, Lance often challenges Keith’s decisions which influence Keith to do better. There are several instances where everyone on the team disagrees with Keith, but it is only once Lance gives his opinion that Keith changes his decision. Like in this scene from season 3 episode 3:

At this moment, everything in Keith is telling him to move forward, but Lance was able to sway his decision. Which leads to the very common Klance tagline that Lance is Keith’s impulse control. Which is true! Lance really is Keith’s impulse control! Although I am sure Keith does not realize it at all because let’s be honest, he’s probably about as self-aware as Zarkon. But it’s not just Lance questioning Keith’s decisions that makes him perfect as Keith’s second. For every bit of doubt that Lance has, he is also just as supportive.

There are so many instances of Lance supporting Keith throughout this season that it is really hard to choose one. For example, when Black first chooses Keith and Lance says he respects Black’s decision or when they are in Keith’s bedroom and Lance claims he came to Keith because “you’re the leader now, right?” But there is one scene that stands above the rest in terms of showing Lance’s support of Keith. From the same episode as referenced before, season 3 episode 3. When Keith finally realizes his mistake of leading the team to Thayserix, Lance doesn’t say “I told you so,” like maybe we might have expected from him in season 1.

Instead, he acknowledges Keith’s mistake, but he doesn’t take the time to scold him about it. He moves on and motivates Keith to go and fix his mistake, which Keith then does. Without Lance, Keith might have destroyed the team as their leader, if not in Thayserix, then eventually. But with Lance’s support, Keith’s leadership becomes much more competent. Lance fills the role of the Red Lion and of the red wings better than anyone else on the team could, and that’s why he’s the best for the Red Lion.

LANCE IS LITERALLY KEITH’S WINGS OKAY LIKE THEY ARE MADE FOR EACH OTHER JFC THESE BOYS WILL LEAD TO MY DEATH HONESTLY

i was eating a banana and then i had a revelation 

ok so

the paladin suits are canonically able to morph into whatever size the paladin who wears them is, as shown by hunk in episode one

alteans are canonically able to shapeshift as we find out in episode ten

so do u think that they gave the suits the ability to shift with the paladin’s size so if they ever had to shapeshift for a mission, their suits would be able to shift in size with them?
