Advice for Beginners of Astrology

• Do a lot of research. Books are probably your best bet for learning astrology - the best astrologers have written books filled with information you probably won’t be able to find online.
• Take it one at a time. Don’t mix different parts of astrology together until you’ve mastered one part first. Signs > planets > houses > aspects is how I learned.
• Incorporate it in your daily life. Practice on your friends. Practice predictions on yourself.
• Keep a note journal/write notes in your phone. I do this because I usually find myself having random astrology related epiphanies throughout my day and forget them later. Keeping a log of how you feel under certain moon phases/signs is useful too.
• It’s okay if you need to google something when answering a question, doing an interpretation or if you just forget. No one really knows everything about astrology. We are all still learning. Don’t feel bad if you need to fall back into a resource, we all do sometimes.

Gravity Falls Journal 3 - download all pages

So, when I started this project one of the main objectives was to re-create hi-resolution version of all the pages to share with the internet since I wasn’t able to find any while creating my replica and I bet theres a couple crazy people out there that also want to make their own journals.

Once I finished all the canon pages I realized there were many awesome creatures and artifacts that never show up on the book within the show so I re-watched the series another 4 times and created new pages for every episode that was missing in the book.

Here I leave you a ZIP file on my download section where you can download them all. There are landscape pages Folio size in 300dpi.

Download here!

Download here!

As always It´s all for free, use them as you like, if you put a link back to this page, that´d be really nice, if not, its ok too. Enjoy!

And I will tell everyone yet again, if you have not watched this series, please do, it’s amazing.

silver-tongues-blog  asked:

you wanna know what's even worse? they were left with amenities that are slightly better than regular camping and STILL devolved into lord of the flies. Like, only upperclass rich snobs would devolve to lord of the flies so fast.

Well, I’m not personally there, but from what I’ve heard and read, the situation has sadly devolved into mass panic.  Even people with the clearest minds and ample resources can fall prey to mob mentality, no matter what their upbringing.  All it takes is a handful of opportunists to stir the pot.

Truthfully, it IS a scary situation - stranded on an island in another country, phones dying, passports and wallets being stolen, no confirmation of whether or not you’ll be able to go home, and not knowing if someone will do physical harm out of the blue?  That would be horrible to deal with!

Yes, they brought this on themselves, and yes, the decision they made to attend this event and pay SO MUCH for it was not a wise one.  Even so, the best outcome for everyone would be to return home safe and sound, and be more mindful after this venture.

We all make mistakes - some MUCH worse than others - but every mistake is a chance to learn.

As crazy as this Fyre Festival situation is, I hope everyone there gets home safely!

And before some jackass starts, that bullshit doesn’t just happen on anon. I’ve seen time and time again trans activists brush aside assault and rape as “acceptable risk.” It’s nice to know that male violence against women means absolutely nothing to such people

Tips for Newbies

I wanna give some tips for those people who are just starting to get into a relationship with a trans guy or trans person. My biggest advice would be to make sure you are strong enough for the task because whether we want to believe that this is a perfect world and everyone is accepting, they are not. You need to be able to stick up for your partner and that means against family and friends because someone will say something rude at least once. Do not tell anyone that your partner is trans unless they have gave you permission too and that means to family as well. Another piece of advice would be to make sure you communicate what each of you feel comfortable with in bed and pronoun usage (f there are places where you cannot use the correct pronouns). Make sure you know if your partner wants to be stealth or not, be patient with your partner in bed or situations that could make them uncomfortable because it is a lot harder to get over dysphoria than anything else. Be really excited for little progresses that they make in their transition because every little piece gets them that much closer to where they wanna be. Make sure you are 100% on board with their transition and don’t say you are but you don’t try to use correct pronouns! If you are not comfortable with their transition then that is ok and leave because they don’t need that kind of resentment from their partner. Finally, love them for who they are and make sure you and them are equally comfortable.

If you have questions regarding dating a trans person feel free to ask and also if you are a partner then make sure you have resources to fall back on when you need them.

Robert’s route release campaign MidCinJp

In this campaign, in each day, from October 9  till October 17, there was a short scene in which Princess asked the suitors about Robert. 

Unlike the Princess Lessons “All about Byron” from Midnight Cinderella English (offered before Byron’s EA was released), where we didn’t find out much about Byron from the other suitors, from the scenes here, we did discovered a few things, not only about Robert but also about some of the suitors.

my shitty star wars au chapter 8 aka Kylo Ren Needs to Chill

@juulna bae

Since leaving Jakku, Rey had learned and seen all sorts of things. Stuff she had never imagined or believed. 

The Jedi were real. She had the Force. Green places existed. There was more to life than scavenging and fighting for every scrap of food and sip of water. Stormtroopers could be good. 

But the one thing Rey hadn’t truly been prepared for was rain.

Thunder and lightning were common enough on Jakku, when it was humid, but rain was extremely rare and incredibly precious.Here, though, next to the ocean, it rained all the time. Rey could hardly believe it. Gallons upon gallons of the most vital resource, falling from the sky and soaking deep into the earth, rinsing everything on it’s way.

Rey danced in the waters, tasting it on her tongue, and she had never felt so clean.

The first time she saw it, she had tried to catch it in a bucket to save. Luke had stopped her, saying it was a common occurrence, and unnecessary. Rey hadn’t believed him. He seemed to understand.

Now though, it had been months, and while she would never get over how water just fell from the fucking sky here, she could certainly get sick of it.

For example, when it had been storming.

For three fucking days.

Like training hadn’t been bad enough when she could go outside. The temple was flooded and she and Luke were confined to the top floors. While Rey respected her Master and enjoyed her time with him (somewhat sort of not really), spending three days in the same few rooms with the man had been hellish.

She tried to pass the time, but after counting all the stones and imagining faces in the moss that grew here and there in patches, three times each, she was growing incredibly bored. 

Plus all the cloud cover in the electrical storm was screwing with her wifi, so she couldn’t even Spacetime Finn and Poe to whine to them.

Which was fucking bullshit, in her opinion.

Left with nothing else to do, she released a breathe and attempted to meditate the hours away. Luke had gone into a trance like state a few hours after the wifi went down, grumbling something about Moisture Farmville, and if he could get through this in an altered state of consciousness, then goddammit, so could Rey.

Closing her eyes, the padawan brushed the small braid behind her ear and concentrated her focus. Rey was used to activity, to moving around and working hard. Sitting still was a strange sensation, and she didn’t always like it. Today, however, with the rain rushing down and cool air flowing, it was easy. With a sigh, she slipped into the hypnotic flow of the Force.

She could feel everything. Leia standing tall, giving orders and managing her grief, every inch the General, every inch the Princess. The young jedi brushed against her, offering condolence and warmth. Leia brushed back with pride and support. Rey didn’t remember her mother, but hopes she was like her. 

Luke in the next room, effortlessly becoming one with the temple and the island and the people of the universe. He was talking to someone, a glowing man with a beard. Rey wasn’t about to push.

Poe, ever so slightly sensitive to the Force, sending back enthusiasm and love. 

Finn, sensitive as a non-force sensitive rock, but comforting in the fact that he was there, and alright. 

Maz, always aware of everything around her.

On the far reaches, she felt a flaming hungry presence, desperately calling out for attention. Kylo Ren.

Fuck that guy, she didn’t need his bullshit today.

Turning inwards, Rey felt herself tuning into the island and the spirit of the place.

Or should she say spirits.

They appeared all around her, those who had become one with the Force before her. Glowing faces with advice and stories.

Today one in particular stood out to her, calling for her attention in a not unfamiliar way.

He was tall, with long hair and a scar down his face. Huh. Now who did that remind her of?

“Hello, Rey.”

“Uh. Hi?” Clearly she was a master of eloquence.

“Do you know who I am?”

“A drama queen?”

“What? No. Look, my name is Anakin. Anakin Skywalker. Does that mean anything to you?”

“Not really. I kinda grew up on a remote desert planet forced to do hard manual labor for as long as I can remember.”

“Oh shit no kidding? Same here. I hate desert planets, they’re the worst. Just. Fucking sand. Everywhere. It’s awful. Sand is awful. It’s coarse and r- wait, you don’t know who I am?”

“Nah, but I feel you on the sand. I had fun with it though. I would slide down the sand dunes, and-”

“Yeah, that’s great. You seriously don’t know the name Anakin Skywalker?”

“Nope.”

The man sighed, disappointedly.

“My son’s a moron. Look, do you know who Darth Vader is?”

“Are you kidding? I have Kylo Ren ranting about how cool he is all the goddamn time. He was an asshole, and a total psychopath with some evil plan to take over the galaxy.”

Anakin raised an eyebrow.

“Oh, shit!”

“That’s fair. Look, I’ve been watching you train. You’re incredibly strong in the Force.”

Rey squinted suspiciously. This sounded incredibly familiar.

“You have amazing potential, and you could become someone great.”

Where had she heard this before? Oh, right. Kylo fucking Ren.

“Ok hold up. Are you about to try to make me your padawan and turn me to the Dark Side?”

Anakin’s face became shocked.

“What? Fuck no! I was just going to tell you to train hard and absolutely do NOT join the Dark Side! You will never live it down Rey. Even if, by some miracle, you get last minute redemption in your dying breaths, you still won’t live it down. All you’ll get is an eternity of your former master making fun of you because they named your grandson after HIM instead, and calling you on your shit, and the ghosts of all the Jedi you killed hanging around awkwardly. No one holds grudges like dead six-year-olds, Rey. No one.”

“Well, I mean, that’s great and all, but I wasn’t going to do that anyway.”

He nodded sagely.

“That’s what I said, but then a creepy old man seduced me.”

“What the fuck.”

“Not like that, dammit! He promised me power!”

“Huh. You know, that is exactly what happened to your grandson? Your family has a problem.”

Anakin winced.

“I know. That’s why I decided to warn you. We have a lot in common, you and I. The whole desert thing, the camaraderie with droids, the power, the piloting skills…”

“Holy shit. Ren is gonna be so fucking pissed when he finds out. It’s gonna be great.”

“Yeah, about that. Sorry my grandson’s an asshole. Kinda runs in the family. Look, if you ever want pointers, someone to talk to…” he shrugged awkwardly.

“You really suck at this.”

“I know.”

“I’ll keep it in mind.”

He nodded and faded away as Rey came back into herself. The rain had finally stopped. Luke looked at her, proud.

“You’ve come very far, padawan. That is the most focused I have yet to see you.”

Rey grinned, proud of herself.

“The wifi’s back on. Take the rest of the day off, talk to your friends. Oh, and I sent you a game request…”

Rey rolled her eyes.

“Yes, Master, I will help you out on Moisture Farmville.”

“Groovy.”

Peace settled upon the temple as two spirits watched.

“I’ve got a good feeling about this one.”

“You said that about Ben, Obi-Wan.”

“Yes, well, with my name, I had high hopes for the lad. Figures your DNA would go and cock it all up, doesn’t it?”

“OH, HERE WE GO AGAIN!”

“LOOK AT MY GRANDSON, YOU SAID. HE REMINDS ME OF MYSELF, YOU SAID. WELL YOU WEREN’T FUCKING WRONG, WERE YOU?”

Somewhere in space, prowling through the halls beneath a black mask, Kylo Ren sneezed, his ears burning.
