“Do not. I repeat. DO NOT ignore someone’s rules page. If I have the dark themes clearly listed out in bold letters on my rules page and you still follow after that, do not get pissy with me for posting said dark themes. It’s your own fault for following. I am not here to serve you, I am not your safe space. Make that safe space on your own. Be proactive and choosy with who you follow. Do your fucking research on someone before you follow them. Oh. My god. I thought this was obvious.”

Feline Deities of Ancient Egypt

So, if you’re in the market for a new deity who is a lion or otherwise feline, I’d like to suggest any of the following fine gods and goddesses.

From Richard Wilkinson’s Complete Gods and Goddesses of Ancient Egypt (he actually has an entire section on feline deities!  So cool!):

Aker
Apedamak
Bast
Bes
Mahes
Mekhit
Menhyt
Mestjet
Mut
Pakhet
Ruty
Sekhmet
Seret
Shesmetet
Tefnut
Tutu

A few of these are pretty well known, but others aren’t so much.  I’m not including informational links because a) I’m lazy and b) the research is good for you.

jesus can everyone just STOP bitching around, bitching at each other and whatever else?

If you don’t like a person, don’t get along with them, just leave each other be. Ignore each other and live your own, hopefully, happy lives. 

I’m sick of seeing all the drama on my dash and I don’t want to start unfollowing blogs I actually enjoy following because of that god damn reason.

A Basic Introduction to Pyromancy

Originally posted by spaceeblack

Hello! After receiving many questions about the topic, I thought it would be a good idea to take a moment and create a basic guide on pyromancy, my preferred methods of divination.

To start, you should know that pyromancy is the term used to describe any form of divination by means of fire; ‘pyro’ coming from the Greek word ‘pyros’ meaning fire. I consider pyromancy to be a blanket term for a variety of different fire-based divination practices. I.e., lychnomancy can be categorized as pyromancy.

                                                         ~~~~~

“Due to the importance of fire in society from the earliest of times, it is quite likely that pyromancy was one of the earlier forms of divination. It is said that in Greek society, virgins at the Temple of Athena in Athens regularly practiced pyromancy. It is also possible that followers of Hephaestus, the Greek god of fire and the forge, practiced pyromancy.

In Renaissance magic, pyromancy was classified as one of the seven “forbidden arts,” along with necromancy, geomancy, aeromancy, hydromancy, chiromancy (palmistry), and spatulamancy (scapulimancy)” - From the Wikipedia page on Pyromancy.

                                                        ~~~~~

Now, what exactly is pyromancy and how does one practice it? Well, the most basic form of pyromancy is done when the diviner observes flames from a sacrificial fire, a candle, or another source of flame, and interprets the shapes that they see within them. However, this is not the only way to practice pyromancy. 

In fact, there are several different kinds of divination that all stem from and fall under the category of pyromancy or use pyromancy. Such as:

  • Alomancy:, divination by salt, one type of which involves casting salt into a fire.
  • Botanomancy: divination by burning plants.
  • Capnomancy: divination by smoke; light, thin smoke that rose straight up was a good omen; otherwise, a bad one.
  • Causinomancy: divination by burning (non-specific as to the object burned).
  • Daphnomancy (also, Empyromancy): divination by burning laurel leaves.
  • Lychnomancy: divination by reading the flames of three candles set in a triangular shape.
  • Osteomancy: divination using bones, one type of which involves heating to produce cracks.
  • Scapulimancy:, divination by scapulae; in Asia and North America, this was done pyromantically.
  • Sideromancy: divination by burning straw with an iron.

                                                       ~~~~~

I hope that this small introduction intro pyromancy was able to answer some of your burning questions! If you are still curious about anything or want to know more about something specific, please feel free to send me a message or to respond to this post. I don’t guarantee that I’ll have the exact answer, but creating a discussion and opening it up to my other followers might help you find one.

                                                                                       Practice safely!

anonymous asked:

is it rude to ask someone to pray for me even though i'm not religious? i'm from one of the least religious countries in the world, so there's not really anyone i know i could ask). even though i don't have a god, sometimes it can feel like prayers and extra thoughts can help you know? but i don't wanna offend anyone, and i don't know how religious people would feel for praying for specific things (that aren't like 'make them find god' bc i don't really feel a need to)? do i make sense?

No its not at all if someone that’s religious thinks so then they obviously don’t even know what they are religious for. I’m sure most people you ask would love that. I will and am happy to pray for you whenever you need it anon and I’m sure many of my followers feel the same. 🙏God Bless

“i think i lost my fidget cube. that, among other things, has made this…”

this has got to be some sort of irony, right? losing the thing that helps you cope with your ADHD

ironies i love to deal with:

  • losing the thing that helps me cope with adhd
  • having too much anxiety to call the pharmacy in order to get meds to help with my anxiety
  • having adhd too hard to request the refill for my adhd meds on time
  • having to contact student disabilities services and follow up all the god damn time so they can help me tell teachers to accommodate me for anxiety and adhd but being TOO ANXIOUS AND ADHD to do so

does having adhd in general just count as one big “fuck you” because that’s honestly what it feels like. anyways i’m in a much better mood but i’m still tilted about this whole mental illness thing

Couldn’t attend the nearest Women’s March the other day and I’ll forever mourn my own loss but that only means more purpose for me to draw my faves obviously having been there. In this case, these cuties were travelling their way from their barnz to the city lyfe to march alongside. Country folk getting lost/explorin’ city vibe much??

A quick lil’ shoutout to Thomas @thatsthat24 for creating such a beautiful phrase that’s on Peri’s shirt that will be featured in another piece soon because what a godsend of a phrase. 

Who has the most dangerous Girlfriend/boyfriend?
  • Percy: Annabeth judo-flipped me once and tried to kill me a few times.
  • Carter: Well, Zia once tried to set me on fire.
  • Will: Nico can summon zombies. I think I win.
  • Magnus: Alex cut my head off once.
  • Others: *stunned silence*
  • Magnus: I win, bitches.
