Venus Signs

Venus in Aries: Emotional, enthusiastic and impulsive, you like to take yourself for a romantic adventurer. You fall in love with impetuosity and at first glance - and you just as quickly fall away. More demanding than you realize, you are affectionate, ardent and easily excited. Though you ultimately need a mental compatibility, what stimulates you in the first place is the physical appearance.

Venus in Taurus: Mistress of Taurus, Venus feels herself completely at home here. It makes you loving, charming, sensual to the extreme, and gives you a great artistic sense. All the pleasures of life attract you, starting with rich foods and ending with long and voluptuous sexual encounters, with the same person preferably. You appreciate constancy, and although you are capable of infidelities, these do not represent your natural mode. You need security, comfort, hugs, magnificent objects, someone who stimulates you, and an attentive partner.

Venus in Gemini: The planet of love in the sign of the inconstant mind produces witty jokes, many hours of happy conversation and strolling in bookstores, as well as an irresistible attraction towards intelligent and fast people. You are quite capable of maintaining a love story by fax. But in the absence of mitigating factors, your affections are easily influenced, and it is difficult for you to distinguish between what should be a great adventure and true love.

Venus in Cancer: A true nest builder, you get the deepest pleasures of your home and family. You are kind, sympathetic, sentimental, loyal, devoted, loved, and great cook (or at least you would like to be one). But even if you give the impression of having complete confidence in yourself, you need more than a little emotional encouragement. Your fear of being rejected may be hidden, but it is real. This may well be the reason you hang on too long, both to friends and the person you love. When you love someone, you want it to be forever.

Venus in Leo: Warm, open, loyal, in love with luxury, you have artistic sense, you are creative, you have theatrical attitudes, and you are in love with love. You feel passionate and express yourself flamboyantly. Love is an essential part of your nature, and you tend to define yourself through it. You also love the arts. But you are not about to run away with an unpublished poet, at least not if the artist in question does not have substantive financial reserves. You are happy when the money comes in well.

Venus in Virgo: When you are in love, you devote all your attention to it, analyze each interaction, reread your letters of love and listen to your answering machine to be sure that you have grasped the slightest nuance. You would do anything to be loved. But you can also criticize and control, have lots of opinions on how others should behave. Some natives with this position have noisy personalities. If you are one of them, people think that you are a wild beast of sex. In reality, most natives are modest, or even a little shy in bed.

Venus in Libra: You are affectionate, kind, warm and eager to please. True romantic, you idealize love and often have problems adapting to a real relationship. When the disappointment settles, it is hard, but you do not stay at home to mop. You are very seductive, and there is usually always someone on your track. This position also brings a high aesthetic sensitivity.

Venus in Scorpio: Thanks to the outrageous eroticism of the Scorpion, this position promises a ticket for ecstasy. And sometimes it is. The presence of mystery, intensity, and even a subtle suspicion of darkness excites you. Proud, passionate and seductive, you are predestined to deep desires, both sexual and emotional, and your love life tends to be tumultuous. In the best case, you are deeply devoted and deeply intimate. In the worst, you can be jealous and vindictive. But despite your reputation, you are also able to withdraw from social interaction and isolate yourself behind an invisible screen.

Venus in Sagittarius: Demonstrative, ardent and emotional, you consider love as an adventure, and not as a means of fixing a secure future. You enjoy your freedom, and your ideal partner is a person who helps you see the world and live even more aspects of life, not someone who restricts your activities. You have high ideals and you are attracted by highly committed people. You are also intrigued by people who come from backgrounds totally different from yours. You do not mind shocking people.

Venus in Capricorn: You are sensual in your sexual relations and constant in your affections, but cautious when it comes to reveal your emotions. You appreciate stability, ownership and righteousness, and you do not want to lose control. The disorder and the mess of emotional brawls frighten you, that’s why you do not reveal your feelings. Serious and sophisticated, you admire everything that is classic. In art as in love, you understand the need to control.

Venus in Aquarius: Open-minded, friendly and idealistic, you are attracted to anti-conformists and rebels, and you have a multitude of friends. But you are not the most passionate person on this planet, and you tend to prefer an intellectual camaredery to a romantic bond. You also need time for yourself, and you tend to take sex casually. The new techniques interest you, but not the display of passion. In the end, you are of the independent type and your heart is hard to catch.

Venus in Pisces: You are sentimental, you have the taste for art, you are devoted and ready to do anything for the beloved. You idealize your partners and sincerely seek union with them, but you have no idea what is reasonable and what is not. Other people find it easy to influence you, partly because you shrug your shoulders as a sign of impotence and accept that you are left with the crumbs. In the end, it makes you angry and explains that you are sometimes offensive emotionally, usually passively and aggressively. You truly know how to love, but you are sometimes too willing to sacrifice your own needs to satisfy those of your partners.

How to Live a Meaningful Life

1. Have a sense a purpose – That is, something which gives you a reason to get out bed, and meet each day with expectancy.

2. Prioritise meaningful relationships – These are relationships with people you enjoy, who accept you as you are, and who make life feel worthwhile.

3. Build into the lives of other people – Through being helpful, warm and interested in others, and their needs.

4. Be authentic, genuine and express yourself – We need to have the freedom to be who we really are, and to enjoy being natural, and to discover our true self.

5. Be adaptable and changeable – For nothing stays the same. That’s part of the adventure, and it helps us stretch and grow.

6. Accept that life’s a journey, and we need to be courageous, to be patient, open, hopeful and resilient.

Tragedy of Ignis

I feel like I already have a post like that. Well I’ll have two then. But you know what’s really sad? Ignis is a function character. It’s not me shitting on the story, there are actual real life people who live like that, molding all their lives around someone else. Typical thing for mothers, maybe that’s one of the reasons why fandom thinks about him as a mom-friend despite the fact that he is adventurous pun master dork. But really all his life since the early childhood was dedicated sorely to Noctis. There are Gladio and Luna who are quite literally live for Noctis to fulfill his role but still, Luna has her oracle shebang, Gladio expresses characteristics that has nothing to do to Noctis: he loves his sister, likes reading, hiking, getting stronger, even those cup noodles. 

Every habit or quality Ignis exhibits is there for Noctis. He may enjoy cooking but he got into it to lift the prince’s spirits after the Tenebrae attack. His knowledge, his manners, his skills at fight all were developed to guide a young king to his fullest potential. And not once he shows even a trace of resentment toward Noct, even having every right, even after this quest leaves him fucking blind. The depth of his devotion and selflessness is truly mind-boggling. 

And the saddest part? It’s all for nothing. He dedicated every second of his life to make Noctis a perfect ruler he never meant to be. 

King Regis never pressed his son to be a great leader because he won’t be, it was good enough if he lived happily for those short years he had. But Ignis didn’t get the memo so he kept on trying.  

I mean even the fact that each bro gets an episode to dive into their character, lives and motivations exclude Ignis. Because “his” episode is still emotionally Noct’s story of coming to terms with his father’s mortality and his own role as an heir.     

This life that we currently have won’t last forever, so enjoy every single second of it. Have fun during the ups and let the downs help you to grow. Life’s a journey; embrace it.

No please...not another Moon Sign post.

I know that moon signs are easily accessible these days, but I made this post solely for refreshing my memory on the moon signs, and to try and get a better understanding of them. 

If you’d like, i’d be very interested in getting to personally know how the moon signs work. If you could answer any of these questions of your choosing, or all, I’d really enjoy reading them. Just make sure to let me know what your rising, moon, and sun sign are. Please send them in an ask :)

Questions:

1. When conflicted with trying to express yourself to someone, how do you approach the issue? For example, if you have feelings for someone, how would you tell them?

2. When you are feeling sad but are bombarded with reality such as being at work, going to school, or being around family, how do you deal with your emotions? Do you let everyone know that you feel a certain way or do you put it in the back burner and deal with it later?

3. Do you tend to manipulate people? If so, how and why?

4. When are you most happy? When are you most sad?

5. Do you deal with negative energy or do you cut the bullshit right away?

6. Are you possessive of your loved ones?

7. Would you say you are social and friendly, or shy and quiet? Or a mix of both?

8. Do you prefer the comfort of your home or out being productive?


MOON SIGNS

How can we even begin to explain the beauty that is the moon sign? It’s who we are at a personal level, when we feel vulnerable, and how we deal with our emotions. It’s a tricky sign because having the same moon sign as someone can suggest you are similar to that person, but the combination of your sun sign with your moon signs says SO much about you. It already sets you apart from the rest of the people with the same sun sign as you. Your moon sign gives you individuality and shows who you are…at heart. 

Moon in Aries: You are so full with emotion whether it be happiness, rage, sadness, that when it comes to this placement, the Arian qualities are even stronger. You are very impulsive and can act on whatever you’re feeling right then and there, without question. If you find yourself letting your heart rule your head this placement would be why. The fact that you can be impatient and get bored easily is actually beneficial for you because it makes you achieve things that most people would be afraid to do. 

Moon in Taurus: You are what home feels like. You want security, comfort, and financial stability and are willing to give this to the people you care most about. You are loyal and it shows. Although you can be the most stubborn one of the group, there’s a reason why you like things a certain way, you just know what works for you. You can be materialistic, often times taking great pride in your luxurious possessions which can put pressure on your friends to live the same way as you. Not everyone has to or wants to live as lavishly as you so try not to compare others to you. 

Moon in Gemini: You are witty, clever, funny, and always want to be mentally stimulated. Since the moon sign is about emotions, with this placement you may find yourself over analyzing your thoughts to the point that you try to rationalize your emotions in a logical manner instead of just feeling. There’s a lot going on in your mind, as most air signs, but since you carry the twin personality, it can be more intense for you. Take a breather and remember that everything will be okay. There’s nothing a good conversation can’t fix.

Moon in Cancer: Very in tune with your emotions, you can soak up any feeling, whether good or bad, like a sponge. Because of this you can become irritable to those who do not understand your emotions because you wish people would be just as understanding as you. However, manipulating people to get what you want out of them is not the greatest idea. Try to be more vocal about your feelings instead of just soaking it all in. You are a very caring person, who is loyal to the end, and because of this people feel very safe and loved around you. 

Moon in Leo: Yes, you thrive off attention, what Leo doesn’t? However, because this is the moon sign, you prefer attention in mainly comfortable situations. At home you are the entertainer and very theatrical in your ways. Very domineering and bossy, you are good at leading others while knowing the importance of being fair. Your appearance is very important to you so you’d rather fake it until you make it instead of showing people how you really feel. A stubborn lion, you do not like to take advice from people but can give it very well so try not to let your ego get the best of you.

Moon in Virgo: You can be your own worst enemy since you criticize yourself the most. Having a low self esteem can bring you down, but don’t be so hard on yourself you are doing the best you can. Living a life of routine makes you happy and feel secure and there is nothing wrong with that. You show your love through action and have an undying love for those you care about. So much so that you voluntarily go the extra mile for them. People admire this about you, but don’t let them take advantage of you either. Learn to take care of yourself the same way you do for others. 

Moon in Libra: Dependency on another person is what you crave. This is not a bad thing, but it leaves you feeling very lonely when you’re not around someone you care about. Very indecisive, you never know what you want often looking for answers in other people, but remember that you know what is best for yourself. You are social, charismatic, and bring peace to those around you. People feel comfortable around you because you have the skill of changing yourself for the benefit of the other person. You can be flirty with just about anyone but at the end of the day intellectual conversations stimulate you best. 

Moon in Scorpio: Emotions are felt very intensely with this placement.You either love something or hate it. Like Aquarius you find interest in the odd and eccentric. Your intuition can be very strong and you show this by picking up the emotions of others. Your life can be all over the place because you aren’t happy living a normal life so you thrive in drama and chaos. You can be intimidating because what Scorpio isn’t? Stubborn but loyal and passionate, when you want something, once you get it, you will never let it go.

Moon In Sagittarius: Upbeat, happy, and optimistic, you believe there is a bright side to everything. You have the power of chilling everyone out so people enjoy your company because it’s full of good energy. An adventurer, you love exploring and getting to know the great outdoors. You can be quite athletic since you are for the most time on your feet doing something active. You are not afraid of commitment but refuse to settle down because you know life has so much to offer and you don’t want anyone or anything holding you back. Freedom is your happiness.

Moon in Capricorn: Handling emotions is not your greatest forte. In fact you specialize in hiding your emotions which can be unhealthy and put you in more stress. Try to talk things out with a loved one and you will see how much it can benefit you. Cold and reserved, you are not an affectionate person but show your love by being useful to those you care about. You seek validation through your hard work, possibly becoming a workaholic. Productivity is important to you so you don’t let emotions stop you from achieving success.

Moon in Aquarius: Emotions? Come again? It’s not that you don’t have emotions it’s just that you have mastered the act of not letting them affect you. If something needs to get done it is going to get done regardless of how you feel. However, you must come back in tune with your emotions every once in a while. At your best, you are observant, curious about human nature, and want to learn all their quirks. Because of this, you might give off a superiority complex since you think you know more than others. Being different and going against the norm, in the end, is all you could care about. Optimistic, friendly, and revolutionary, you attract a lot of friends this way.

Moon in Pisces: You are pretty intuitive with not only your emotions, but of those around you as well. You might feel like you can sympathize and literally understand every emotion a person has ever felt. This can cause some sort of psychic ability. As compassionate as you are, people might walk all over you so be cautious of who you open up to. You may find yourself drifting away or day dreaming because you are in awe of all the things the universe has to offer. Lastly, you are a great friend because you can understand everyone’s side and you always try to put yourself in other people’s shoes. 

I honestly just want someone:

to make breakfast with and to enjoy the first cup of coffee with each morning.

to cuddle up with each night and rainy day.

who is down to take part in all of my spontaneous adventures, going wherever the day takes us.

who shares in my desire to live in a van so we can travel the world together and live simply.

who loves me, my dog, my family and my friends; doesn’t get mad when I share some of my love and attention with them.

who is strong, passionate about their beliefs, and confident in who they are, yet lets down their walls for me.

who understands and appreciates how difficult it was for me to fully let down my own walls and give my heart to them.

who trusts and believes in me and gives me no reason not to have the same trust in them.

who makes me proud to say “yepp, that’s my girl!” every time they accomplish something in life or even just do something adorable.

who isn’t afraid to be exactly who they are, even if it makes me laugh and shake my head because they are the world’s biggest dork.

& lastly,
to be my partner in crime and best friend.

Is that so much to ask?

M/M romance recs

Here’s a list of my favourites! Organised by genre, with very broad summaries. All of them have HEA, all the m/m romances are the central ones. 

Names in bold have POC protagonists, names in cursive have disabled protagonists (be it physical disability, mental illness or chronic illness). In series with multiple couples, it’s usually one or more.

Feel free to ask me about triggers for any of them!


Historical:

  • Soldier’s Scoundrel by Cat Sebastian

Disabled regency war vet aristocrat decides to hang around a self-proclaimed ex-criminal helping those who need help. Said ex-criminal tries not to be charmed, ends up catching feelings instead

Trilogy set in victorian London, during the horrible London Fog of 1873. Three wonderful and diverse couples (one is half-indian with dyspraxia, one is non-binary, one was born with partial arm, one is near-sighted), murder mystery, fake mediums, lost earls, intrigue! It’s so good 

  • Wanted, a Gentleman by KJ Charles

A Society of gentlemen who like other gentlemen, centered around Lord Richard Vane and his friends and acquitances.

This trilogy is honestly my favourite thing EVER.

  • A Charm of Magpies by KJ Charles

Filthy-mouthed dominant earl falls in love with a stubborn and heroic wizard, together they create magic. A lot of people want that magic though, and it gets ugly. First KJ book I’ve ever read and I fell in love instantly. Has two more books set in the same universe with different protagonists and those are also amazing. (Rag and Bone is the one with black protagonist)

You will be a mess whenever you think of the book and you will enjoy every second of it.

Set in the world of The Secret Casebook of Simon Feximal. Only few years after WW1, Britain is still recovering from the war. Having lost an entire generation of youth and most of the sorcerers the country had, those left are completely unprepared for what’s to come.

  • Cut&Run by Abigail Roux and Madeleine Urban

The incredible adventures on an unlikely pair of FBI agents go from enemies to lovers. Includes serial killers, undercover luxury yacht trips, tiger trafficking, drugs, marine buddies and one of the genuinely best character developments I’ve read. Warning, the first book is a bit shit. The rest is absolutely incredible though.

The adventures of Lynn the Kraken shifter and Anderson the unicorn shifters, their detective careers, and their life together. Honestly adorable. And when I say adorable, I mean sparkles-on-rainbow-filled-cupcake kind of adorable. Also, Lynn’s gender-presentation is fluid and it’s absolutely wonderful.


FANTASY

  • Captive Prince by C.S. Pacat

Prince gets betrayed and sent as a slave to his sworn enemy, they end up working together to save their countries and fall in love. The best enemies to lovers example. Has amazing and complex politics, unreliable narrator and great worldbuilding. You’ve probably already heard of this book, but if you’re worried about triggers, please ask someone who actually read it, because there’s a lot of misinformation flying around.

  • Nightrunner series by Lynn Flewelling

“Harder!” Stark yelled, causing me to groan. “I’m punching as hard as I fucking can, it’s unfair that you’re using your glove!” 

“Bucky, your arm is metal. You should be able to punch a hole through the damn thing.” Tony was showing absolutely no mercy today, and I couldn’t fucking stand it. Everything about him annoyed the hell out of me, and the fact that we were paired for training just frustrated me even more. 

I clenched my fist as tightly as I could and swung forward with as much force as I could muster, sending the punching bag off of the chains that held it to the ceiling and taking Tony down with it.
