Aura/Energy Color Meanings

This list is based off of resources I have found as well as my personal experiences.

As with all correspondences, this is a place to start from, not the end-all be-all of color meanings.

This list generally assumes that brighter colors are healthier and more positive, while duller colors are negative and less positive. Use your intuition to determine the true role a color plays.

Interpreting Colors

OVERLAYS If one color is covering another, this can indicate outer appearance, how others perceive them, or a blockage that is preventing the inner color from shining.

COMBINATIONS If one color is mixed with another in stripes, lines, or spots, the person presents both qualities in equal or similar measure.

MIXING If two or more colors appear to blend together, this can indicate strong balance and intermingling of personal energies.

SOLID If a person primarily presents only one color with no overlays, they are honestly projecting their inner energies.

Mabel Pines vs. The Laws of Narrative Causality

[Ao3]

Once upon a time there was a man who loved his family so much that he lost them, and then he lost himself.

Once upon a time there was a man who was so frightened to admit how much his family mattered to him that he refused to accept it until it was too late, and he spent the rest of his life regretting it.

Once upon a time there was a boy who loved mysteries until he grew into a man who dreaded them.

Once upon a time there was a girl, and then she turned into a woman and was never happy again.

This is the story you’re in, said a voice in her head. You chose this. You chose to leave your paradise and grow up. This is what growing up is. It’s losing people. It’s having your heart broken. It’s watching the things you love fall apart. This is what’s supposed to happen. It’s supposed to be poetic and tragic. This is how the world works.

They stood there in the clearing: the old man writing his own Greek tragedy in his head clinging to the man with nothing in his head at all. The boy whose head was full of conspiracy theories and bad ends.

And Mabel Pines.

She could feel the shape of the story building like a wave, trying to wash her and her family away with it. She could feel the tragedy trying to sink its fingers into them, trying to tell her that the old men would only ever be a cautionary tale, that she and her brother would only ever be a tragedy waiting to happen. It was the shape of every story they read at school, stories that were supposed to be important and serious but only ever felt sad.

(“Why don’t we read books where good things happen?” she’d demanded, and her teacher had smiled and said, “That’s just not realistic, dear.”)

She’d chosen reality. She should have known what that meant. She’d chosen the end of childhood, the end of innocence and happiness and hope. It was time to grow up. Time to accept what a realistic life looked like. Time to accept that you couldn’t save the world without losing something just as important. Time to—

No.

Here is a fact about Mabel Pines: she is selfish. She is the sort of selfish that makes her stand up against the things that try to break her and say: No. This is my family. This is my world. I will not let you take it from me.

The others all bent their heads, ready to be washed away by the unforgiving tide of the story, by the inevitability of it all, but Mabel Pines braced herself against the current and stood tall and let it break over her.

Mabel Pines ignored her uncle’s protests, ignored the hopeless look in his eyes, and picked up the book she’d made and started to read. The man who wasn’t her uncle anymore seemed frightened when she climbed into his lap, but she knew that she fit there, knew that the whole family fit together like a puzzle, like one of those sculptures where every piece balances the others so that if you remove one the whole thing falls apart. They’d been apart for so long, but they didn’t have to stay that way. They just needed to find the right way to slot together, and they were so close.

They were so close to a happy ending.

She knew the world was more selfish than she was. She knew she couldn’t fix everything. But she would fix this.

Mabel read. She read from a pink glittery scrapbook and she fought the story that was trying to catch her up in it. She battled back with her words and her stickers and her crooked photos and her love, weaving together hundreds of lace-weight threads into a net so strong that when the story got caught up in it instead of pulling her away it bucked and struggled and finally changed its course.

This is my reality, she told the universe. This is my story and my uncle, and you cannot have him.

And the universe reshaped itself around her.

The Twelfth House

Originally posted by imkindof

Natural Sign: Pisces

Natural Planet: Neptune

Comfortable Planets: Jupiter, Venus

What It Represents:

  • the unconscious 
  • self-sacrifice
  • sorrows and anxieties
  • dreams
  • escapism and addictions
  • self-undoing 
  • karma
  • hidden enemies
  • betrayal
  • grief 
  • unwilling (most of the time) restrictions, whether physical or mental 
  • coping mechanisms
  • loneliness

Given it’s themes it is naturally as hard to grasp as magnetic.

Everything in this house is hidden from us but still there somewhow. Like a tv left on mute; you still know it’s there even if you can’t hear it. 

It shows things that happened or were felt before we were even born, just before the first house (who we are, how we came to this world).

Where we feel unable to keep going so we run. What we are willing to sacrifice for others and the greater good. Things we push to the back of our minds until we explode, ending up as surprised about it as those around us.

Things that don’t even feel real.

But it isn’t necesarilly bad at all. In order to advance we must pay and overcome our karmic debts. And once it’s done, it gives incredible power, planets in the twelfth house are tainted with unique traits, no other house could give after all.

Twelfth house planets feel lonely and isolated from the outer world, but if mastered they are energies we don’t even have to express for others to notice them, they blend with the mind in an exquisite way, giving this house dreamy nature a direction and use.

For this we must find our sixth house energy.

Planets 

**You can use the planet’s ruling signs if you don’t have any in the twelfth house but take into account that the effect will be obviously less powerful.

Sun (Leo): creates a selfless and dreamy personality with strong instincts. There’s a constant search for who they are, tiny pieces of their personality slip through their daily life and dreams, but they feel as if the left just as quickly. Their giving nature can often become martyrdom used to fill that idealized idea they can have of themselves, feeling like some sort of “saint” or saviour. At their best they can become wise and at peace with life, teaching others to give more to others. They dream to shine and be recognized.

Moon (Cancer): there’s a powerful need to escape and be alone for a while. They can be easily drained because of their absorbing emotional nature, creating a need to be alone in order to recharge. Can feel abandoned by their mother and somehow helpless when it comes to how they feel. Emotions can be often misunderstood and this people can even ignore them to the point they explode (usually with no one around), suddenly realizing what they were feeling. Dreams of taking care of others and being taken care of.

Mercury (Gemini/Virgo): inner restlessness affects the native, they can feel they lack intelligence and get lost in their heads, which makes them immensely creative. Can have trouble with thinking process and expressing themselves verbally. They’re the type of people that think with their hearts even though they try to hide it. Dreams to share their thoughts. 

Mars (Aries): unable to actively express their doubts and fears. Selflessly protects the helpless and is a fighter at it’s core. Prone to self victimization and bottling up anger due to fear of losing control and hurting others in the process. There’s an inner restlessness and desire for action and excitement but energy seems lost to them. A past of physical abuse can be common. Dreams to become a hero.

Venus (Taurus/Libra): it’s one of the most beautiful placements for the twelfth house, it creates a beautiful subconscious and when this people love, they do it with all their heart, they are willing to die for those they love and preserve that dreamy and sensitive quality only the twelfth house can give. Dreams to be loved and to love. Must be careful not to become dependent.

Jupiter (Sagittarius): there’s reluctance to expand in the physical plane, but infinite opportunities to grow spiritually. Optimism feels out of reach as well as beliefs. Is willing to sacrifice for what they believe in. Dreams to become some sort of teacher and accumulate wisdom. Meditation would be ideal for people with this placement. They are the type of people that like to do good for others behind the curtains.

Saturn (Capricorn): they may feel trapped somehow, there´s a sensation of hardship in their lives, as well as unexpected betrayal from others. The father figure may have been absent or involved in some kind of addiction. Structure is blurry in their lives and they may feel as if things are bound to fall apart at some point. Dreams of success, even though dreaming and imagining can be difficult for them.

Uranus (Aquarius): revolutionary desires are supressed or not even considered to exist in their psyche. Erratic actions and detachment can be used as a way of self destruction, but once mastered this people are willing to sacrifice for their freedom and the well being of others Just like with mercury there may be inner restlessness and eccentric dreams that are hard to find a meaning to. Dreams of change. Prone to feeling trapped.

Neptune (Pisces): this natives have great sensibility and compassion which can lead them to addictions in order to escape, so they must be extremely careful with how they deal with everything. Reality does not cage them, gifting them with immense intuition and creativity. Dreams can be prophetic or somehow psychic.

Pluto (Scorpio): grudges are swallowed and kept in the subconscious. There’s a lot of darkness within. that can be used either to heal or destroy. Infinitely complex subconscious. Need to explore the darkest side of their psyches, but reluctance to do it. This people keep many secrets and can be very unstable. There could be a past of psychological abuse. Dreams of power and transformation.

Jupiter was the supreme and he was wise as well. It’s no wonder this ginormous planet is the ruler of Sagittarius and co-ruler of Pisces. He was the personification of divine authority. In a way, he can teach us to lead in a spiritual way because not everything is about power. Come to think of it, it was both Jupiter in Roman mythology and Zeus in Greek mythology that overthrew their own fathers: Saturn/Cronus because they believed they overused their powers.

I am a Christian

When I say this, I’m not just saying:

  • I have a different worldview
  • My parents were Christians
  • I’m spiritual
  • I try to hold good morals.

Those are all part of it for me, but that’s not the sum of it (I’m not saying all Christians have to grow up Christian with Christian parents, I just included that because lots of people call themselves Christians simply because of this)

Christianity is about being close to God, it’s about belonging to Him, loving Him and letting Him love you. 

It’s so simple. It’s painfully simple. 

But it’s everything. 

Sometimes it’s necessary to sit all by youself and self reflect, maybe step back a little to see if you’re actually moving forward in the right direction. It’s important to look within yourself and see if you’re really doing fine. Ask yourself “Is this helping me grow emotionally, mentally and spiritually?” Anything that is stopping your growth, anything that is preventing you for living your life, anything that is delaying your process of healing and disturbing the calmness of your heart and soul, you need to recognise that force, that reason and let it go. Start improving your life by helping yourself first. Be kind, be there for everyone as much as you can but don’t forget that You need yourself too. Nobody deserves your love more than you. Take care of your heart, mind and soul.💛
