Florence Violet McKenzie

(1890–1982) Electrical engineer

Florence Violet McKenzie was the first female electrical engineer in Australia. Her focus was wireless radio and she was the first Australian woman to have an amateur radio operator’s license. She was a lifelong advocate for women’s technical education and founded the Women’s Emergency Signalling Corps in 1939 so women volunteers could replace men in civilian communications when they joined the armed forces during World War II.

  • She has a thing for toys/electrical implements; violet wands, fucking machines, tens units, wireless toys. Remember anything can be hacked
  • Asking her for permission for things is HELL. She’s big on denial until you feel like you’re about to break. She’ll say she hasn’t heard you and make you beg and beg and beg until you are on the brink of tears
  • She is big on dressing her partner, I mean have you seen this woman’s style? Of course she is going to make sure you look good. That being said, the woman has clothes that can be hacked into. You don’t know how or where, but she has them and she uses them to her advantage
  • One of her fave things to do is bind you up, no blind folds and tease you only to disappear and touch you intermittently, just leaving you confused and overwhelmed
  • She’s not big on slapping but she loves grabbing your face and making you look at her. She’ll make you tell her what you love about her all while smiling and occasionally making you repeat things she really likes
  • That being said for all her teasing and goading, she is a very very cuddly and hands on person. Aftercare is all cuddles and praises and quiet teasings for the sounds you made
  • She has vids/sounds of ya….she sometimes reveals them to you just to mess with you

((hope that is good anon!))

Did you know that each zodiac sign has its own color? So what do each signs’ colors mean?

Aries [RED: root chakra] - a sign of passion, high energy and enthusiasm; Aries rolls out the procession of signs, and red corresponds with that essence of initiation. For Aries, red ignites, it sizzles. Red for your sign is all about action, pleasure and even love. Red is aligned with the root chakra, which means you have remarkable abilities to light and kindle your fire even under the most depressing circumstances. It also means you can easily give your fire to others. 

Taurus [GREEN: heart chakra] - Considering your sign is grounded in earth energy, it’s no surprise your governing color is green. Green is a springtime, youthful sign. Your color meaning suggests you are a kid at heart. Even so, you love to see things grow up and thrive. Green is symbolic of family and unity. Hearth and home are of prime importance to you. Green is aligned with the heart chakra. This means matters of the heart (close relationships…family, friends, sentimentality) are at the forefront of who you are. Green indicates you are a sensitive soul with ‘evergreen’ capacity for growth.

Gemini [ORANGE: sacral chakra] - orange is the color of diversity, sociability and inspiration. Your color meanings imply a high level of engagement with other people and a strong sense of your place within a close-knit community. The color orange is symbolic of harmony. Orange is aligned with the sacral chakra. That means you are likely designed for discovery and exploration. This color will inspire you to be more adventurous.

Cancer [VIOLET: crown chakra] - Violet: You can go very deep….deep within yourself, within the realm of dreams and emotions. Violet will pull you out and energize you when you feel overwhelmed. It’s a perfect color match for Cancer zodiac signs because it symbolically reflects idealism.Tapping into the color meanings of violet will help you manifest your ideas and expectations. Simply consider a lovely twilight scene. Get fluid with that dreamy violet realm of twilight. Doing so will engage your intuition which, in turn, will allow you to see your visions into reality. Violet is aligned with the crown chakra. This means you have massive potential for higher consciousness, deep understanding and spiritual growth.

Leo [YELLOW: solar plexus chakra] - Leo zodiac signs are absolutely radiant, so it’s a no-brainer their color mimics the light of the sun. Like the rays of the sun, you’ve got this energy that just doesn’t quit. Yellow is symbolic of humor, intelligence, courage and strength. It’s also a very positive color. If you are feeling low, consider focusing on the energy of yellow. Yellow is aligned with solar plexus chakra. This implies you’re accustomed (and maybe even enjoy) being the center of attention. After all - that yellow sun is central to our solar system. 

Virgo [BLUE: throat chakra ] - Blue for Virgo’s has a very calming, tranquil energy to it. As a result, you rarely have (too much) of a problem finding your “happy place”. Because you are skilled at tapping into peace and balance, others are attracted to your easy-going demeanor. You genuinely care about the well being of life around you. Blue is aligned with throat chakra. This means you can effectively communicate your feelings without coming off as abrasive or sharp. You can be naturally eloquent and diplomatic with your expression. 

Libra [GREEN: heart chakra] - You inherently know how things equate, balance and come together to bring about perfect harmony. Nature is a big necessity for you.  Your instinct for survival is super-keen. You know what it takes to be healthy and well. You also know what it takes to get a job done, and you’re usually fearless about taking chances to achieve your goals. Green is aligned with the heart chakra. This is symbolic of healing and mastering the heart’s calling. In Gemini’s case, this means delving into matters of the heart with that amazing power of discernment you possess. In your case, you’ve got incredible ability to get to core issues, find solutions and tip the scales to heal and restore balance. Unleash your power to facilitate growth, understanding and healing in the world.

Scorpio [RED: root chakra] -  red goes deep, like you do. Visualize a volcano. I can’t think of a better metaphor for Scorpio-red. Deep within you is a passion that stirs and churns. That lava-love within you is sometimes very calm….sometimes bubbling at the brim, aching to spring forth with startling power. Red is a color of sensuality, love, potential, magic and manifestation. You can burn brighter than most. You know your furnace is always on, and you have the wits to know when to let yourself run or when to idle. Red is root chakra energy. That substantiates the whole volcano imagery. Way deep within you is a magnificent fire. You can kindle that fire by knowing your value, feeling acceptance and embracing your power. 

Sagittarius [VIOLET: crown chakra] - There is an electric quality to violet that matches Sagittarius zodiac signs’ energy. Enthusiasm is the watchword for your color aligned with your sign. On the end of the color spectrum, violet implies temperance too. This is a lovely juxtaposition. It suggests a hefty sense of adventure while still having the ability to be intellectual. In fact, Sagittarius-violet is a heady color. Violet energy is excited when it comes to adventures in understanding and wisdom. Violet is also a color of spirituality, and your explorations may often revolve around spiritual themes. This color is aligned with the crown chakra. That means you set your sights on higher understanding and intuitive evolution. You’re always aiming further - looking to hit that bulls eye of wisdom and truth. 

Capricorn [INDIGO: third-eye chakra] -  Color meanings of indigo for Capricorn zodiac signs deals with depth of perception. You have the ability to pierce the darkness and see clearly through confusion.  People depend on your consistent display of cool action. Indigo can pose a realm of unknowns, which may make you uncomfortable. Because you are gifted with intellectual alacrity, you like facts. Taking risks or delving into the unknown isn’t your bag baby. Nevertheless, indigo implies you have tremendous instinct. You’ve got the perception, confidence. Indigo is aligned with the third-eye chakra. That’s mighty powerful intuition coming into play.

Aquarius [VIOLET: crown chakra] - You have a keen sensitivity that has the color violet written all over it. This sensitivity shows itself as high creativity. As an expressive color, violet implies you find great joy in expressing your depth through art, music, writing. You have incredible ability to take ephemeral concepts, and weave them into meaningfulness with style. Violet can be a very internal color. Meaning, sometimes you are pulled into your own dreamy whirlpools of thought and sensitivity. Thankfully, violet can be very energizing too. This means you can activate the high frequencies of this color to draw you out of seclusion if you feel you’ve got too far into the depths of yourself. . Your understanding of the world is broad and unorthodox. You strive to bring forth your unique understanding so that others might see your colorful angle on life. Violet is aligned with the crown chakra. That means you can easily succeed in canvassing your vision for the world to see. You’ve got heady insight and high ideals. It’s vital you bring forth the waters of your unconventional views and discoveries.

Pisces [INDIGO: third-eye chakra] - Your indigo-colored waters run deep, Pisces. Some of the emotional waters you swim in are very dark - but very little escapes your perception. Indigo is all about moving deeply…especially in matters of emotion. You don’t even have to see what’s going on around you. You can just feel the energetic waves of emotion. This makes you highly sensitive to external influences. Luckily, indigo can be a very insulating and protective energy. Wear indigo when you need to be shielded from the psychic clatter of the world around you. Allow yourself to swim deeply, Pisces, but don’t hide yourself from the world. We need your sensitivity, your intensity and your powerful perception to remind us how profoundly connected we all are. Indigo is aligned with the third-eye chakra. That means your psychic abilities are extraordinarily keen. You can spend a lot of time in contemplation and meditation. When you come out of your ruminations, you’ve usually got some kind of impression. Often, your instinct is correct. Indigo is a gift of growth and vision. Your gifts of perception can help others in advancing their dreams, and realizing their greatest potential. You can use your gifts to give yourself the same lift.
