house of finance

Every time a post on queerplatonic relationships makes its way around tumblr, the comments are inevitably filled with a flood of “IT’S CALLED FRIENDSHIP” or “WHY DO YOU NEED A WORD FOR THIS.”

Do you honestly think society regards friendship as an acceptable substitute for romance and marriage?  The thing is, most aros would LOVE if it could just be called friendship.

Because that would mean a world where:

  • Friendships are considered equal to or sometimes *SHOCK HORROR* more important than romantic relationships.  This is not an exceptional occurrence.
  • Romantic partners know that they might not be their datemate’s Most Important Person and are not bothered by this.
  • People commonly plan major life events around their friends up to and including housing, finances, employment, ect.
  • It is common for people to be in their 30s, 40s, 50s, hell even old age having lived with friends that entire time and no one has ever asked them why they’re not married.
  • It is common for people to have a committed lifelong partnership with their friend and no one bats an eye.
  • Having a life friend is considered something that can be regarded as equally close to marriage.  It is also taken just as seriously.

Until the day that those are true, friendship is unfortunately not an accurate word to convey the types of relationships we’re talking about. 

Not fake news. Just the facts.
A DAY IN THE LIFE OF JOE REPUBLICAN AMERICAN


Joe gets up at 6 a.m. and fills his coffeepot with water to prepare his morning coffee. The water is clean and good because some tree-hugging liberal fought for minimum water-quality standards. With his first swallow of coffee, he takes his daily medication. His medications are safe to take because some stupid commie liberal fought to insure their safety and that they work as advertised. All but $10 of his medications are paid for by his employer’s medical plan because some liberal union workers fought their employers for paid medical insurance - now Joe gets it too.


He prepares his morning breakfast, bacon and eggs. Joe’s bacon is safe to eat because some girly-man liberal fought for laws to regulate the meat packing industry. In the morning shower, Joe reaches for his shampoo. His bottle is properly labeled with each ingredient and its amount in the total contents because some crybaby liberal fought for his right to know what he was putting on his body and how much it contained.


Joe dresses, walks outside and takes a deep breath. The air he breathes is clean because some environmentalist wacko liberal fought for laws to stop industries from polluting our air. He walks to the subway station for his government-subsidized ride to work. It saves him considerable money in parking and transportation fees because some fancy-pants liberal fought for affordable public transportation, which gives everyone the opportunity to be a contributor.


Joe begins his work day. He has a good job with excellent pay, medical benefits, retirement, paid holidays and vacation because some lazy liberal union members fought and died for these working standards. Joe’s employer pays these standards because Joe’s employer doesn’t want his employees to call the union.


If Joe is hurt on the job or becomes unemployed, he’ll get a worker compensation or unemployment check because some stupid liberal didn’t think he should lose his home because of his temporary misfortune.


It’s noontime and Joe needs to make a bank deposit so he can pay some bills. Joe’s deposit is federally insured by the FSLIC because some godless liberal wanted to protect Joe’s money from unscrupulous bankers who ruined the banking system before the Great Depression. Joe has to pay his Fannie Mae-underwritten mortgage and his below-market federal student loan because some elitist liberal decided that Joe and the government would be better off if he was educated and earned more money over his lifetime.


Joe is home from work. He plans to visit his father this evening at his farm home in the country. He gets in his car for the drive. His car is among the safest in the world because some America-hating liberal fought for car safety standards. He arrives at his boyhood home. His was the third generation to live in the house financed by Farmers’ Home Administration because bankers didn’t want to make rural loans. The house didn’t have electricity until some big-government liberal stuck his nose where it didn’t belong and demanded rural electrification.
He is happy to see his father, who is now retired. His father lives on Social Security and a union pension because some wine-drinking, cheese-eating liberal made sure he could take care of himself so Joe wouldn’t have to.


Joe gets back in his car for the ride home, and turns on a radio talk show. The radio host keeps saying that liberals are bad and conservatives are good. He doesn’t mention that the beloved Republicans have fought against every protection and benefit Joe enjoys throughout his day.


Joe agrees: “We don’t need those big-government liberals ruining our lives! After all, I’m a self-made man who believes everyone should take care of themselves, just like I have.”

Pluto Through the Houses of Astrology

Pluto is a generational planet, it takes a long time for it to transition into a different sign, it takes somewhere from 14-30 years, so it doesn’t take part in our daily life. Although, where it’s placed in the houses is far more important than the sign, because that changes by the hour. I will start off by explaining what exactly is Pluto? Well, Pluto is the co-ruler of the sign Scorpio. Now, we all know something about Scorpio ;) (hehehe) There are 5 main themes of Pluto. One is transformation, two is destruction, three is intensity, four is rebirth, and five is obsession. Pluto is also known to be the ruler of the underworld which can be very intimidating and powerful. He’s mentioned in many books, and my favorite mention of Pluto is Inferno by Dante Alighieri, where Plutus is the lord of the 4th Circle for those who are the Miserly or Prodigal, which means people who sinned by trying to control money and fortune were to be in the 4th Circle. As many of you may know, the 8th house rules other people’s money, due to Pluto being the ruler of that house along with Mars. Now that we’ve learned a few things about Pluto, I will explain what it means when it goes through each house!

Pluto in the 1st house: The 1st house is the house of your identity, public persona, first impression, personality, and physical appearance. So when Pluto is placed here, you can be a bit of an intense person because you come off as different from society, you don’t mind hanging in the shadows. Being in the public eye and having everyone know about you can annoy you a little. You change a lot, whether it’s weight, height, style, personality, so on. Each person thinks of you differently because of that. You can have a bit of a dark atmosphere hanging around you, and your eyes are hypnotic, demanding, and very powerful. You can seem a bit power hungry yourself, always trying to be in control. 1st house also represents the story of your birth, and early childhood. Your birth could’ve been painful, intense, and transformative for your mother. In your early childhood, there could’ve been a war in your birthplace, or some sort of deep conflict that later brought enlightenment.

Basically, what you do is you figure out which sign is in each placement. For instance, I am a Sagittarius Sun. Sagittarius is a Fire sign, and Gryffindor’s corresponding element is Fire.

The Houses in Astrology

The Houses in astrology are the areas of your life and they are divided into 12 Houses to fit one of each 12 Zodiac signs. Each House, as mentioned previously, represents one specific area of your life or of yourself. Some Houses can be personal, some can deal with relationships and others can deal with your community as a whole.

The 1st House
The 1st House deals with the self and the physical body. It is not only what you choose to identify with, but it’s also how people can perceive you to be. First impressions are everything and how you come off to people and qualities that you can possess are all located in the 1st House.

The 1st House is also known as your Ascendant or Rising sign.

The 2nd House
The 2nd House deals with value and your possessions. Now value doesn’t have to be something physical, if the 1st House deals with our physical and outer self, the 2nd House dives in a little deeper. This is where our sense of self stems from. It’s the area in our lives that show us what we find value in to fulfill our basic needs. The 2nd House is what we own and find ownership in as well.

The 3rd House
The 3rd House deals with communication and your immediate surroundings. On a far deeper level, the 3rd House deals with siblings. The 3rd House shows us how we communicate, how we speak and how we write. It is how we process things and how we may go about our days and interact with our surroundings (what is familiar to us).

The 4th House
The 4th House deals with your home and your roots. On a deeper level, the 4th House can be known as your soul. The 4th House has everything to do with your family, how you may have perceived your situation at home as well as who you are when you’re alone.

The 4th House is also known as your IC sign (Imum Coeli).

The 5th House
The 5th House deals with self expression and pleasure. It is where our joy stems from and what we find happiness in doing. The 5th House also deals with romance and casual sex since it’s the House where we find pleasure in. On a deeper level, the 5th House can also deal with children.

The 6th House
The 6th House deals with our daily routine and our health. It shows us how we may approach our daily life, what can affect our health and also how we go about personal hygiene as well as the kinds of workers we are. The 6th House can show you how you may deal with sickness.

The 7th House
The 7th House deals with relationships of all kinds as well as marriage. It is where we look to for partnership, the people that compliment us the best. The 7th House does not deal with casual relationships like how the 5th House does, instead it deals with long-term relationships. Look to this House to also find out how you would much rather cooperate with others and/or your cooperation skills.

The 7th House is also known as your Descendant.

The 8th House
The 8th House deals with intimacy and transformation. It’s the House we look at when it comes to knowing how we go about intimate relationships/sex and it is also the House we look at to see how we go about other people’s property. The 8th House deals with inheritances, investment, finances, death and birth.

The 9th House
The 9th House deals with higher education and travel. Normally, this is the House we look at regarding our beliefs, where our morals stem from and usually, how we go about university. This is also the House of travel and it may be an indicator of how you go about travel or simply leaving a familiar environment and going into unknown land.

The 10th House
The 10th House deals with your career and public image. It is the House we look at to show how we display our achievements and also the kind of person we aspire to be. It can also be the kind of people or qualities we admire. On a deeper level, this is who we are in our career field.

The 10th House is also known as your Midheaven and/or MC (Medium Coeli).

The 11th House
The 11th House deals with your community and your friendships. It is how we go about friendships or what we may look for in friends. This is usually how we can go about teamwork and also what we may do or how we get involved in our community. This is also the House where our dreams and goals lie in.

The 12th House
The 12th House deals with the subconscious and endings. Things in the 12th House are hidden from others and it can be things that you can’t access. This is where you are free to dive into your imagination. It is how you are when you’re alone, late at night.

Hey. So I’m starting college in october, a year and some program. 
While in school Im currently stuck staying in a toxic household, which has already sent me to the hospital about four times, and close many more, in the past three months. 

I’m getting student loans, as of this moment I havent been accepted for any loan though, and I’m unable to get a job (because of school ((my classes are every day, sat-sun)) and Health Issues). 
But I’m also hoping to get out of this house. I cant stay for my own physical safety, mental safety, and to be able to get through school successfully so I can get a career in the field. 

I have an eye on the housing situation around my school and the Student residence and rent seems to be from 690-900$ a month. (the economy in my area is fucked trust me this isnt a scam.)

I have absolutely nothing and I’m in… desperate need to leave. While staying in this home any cash I have is at risk of being used to buy alcohol by my addict parents. 

Please if you can help me out, even just a little, Donate here > XX
Or if you’d like a little something for your cash, my commissions are open > XX

If you can reblog this and spread the word that would be great too. I didn’t want to do this but I cant stick it out without falling hard.

Hey Cherry! Im trying to understand how the houses work. Could you explain/ guide me somewhere where I could understand it better? Thanks!

Hey, the houses are the experiences and life themes we direct the sign and planet through. The four angular houses are the most significant:

The First House/First house cusp - Ascending: My instant, environmental responses
The Seventh House/Seventh house cusp - Descending: Who I attract
The Tenth House/Tenth house cusp - Midheaven: Who I want to be/who the public thinks I am/success story
The Fourth House/Fourth house cusp - Imum Coeli: Where I came from, mother, psychological base

Second House: Values, Finances, Sensuality, Body
Third House: Immediate perception, Communication, Expression
Fifth House: Pleasure, Play, Children, Creativity
Sixth House: Service, Health, Daily Living
Eighth House: Transformation, Magic, Death, Joint Finances
Ninth House: Awareness, Spiritual Search, Philosophy, Pilgrimage
Eleventh House: Friends, Social inclusion, Dreams
Twelfth House: Sacred space, Privacy, Alone time, Infinity

Each of the houses is ruled by its corresponding sign on the zodiac, and you can see how they reflect the theme of the sign, like Aries ruling the 1st house of self expression and identity, and Pisces ruling the 12th house of dream and delirium. The houses bring the signs and planets to life. These are the places on the atlas we express the qualities through. Does your sun Leo dance through the joy of friends in the eleventh house, or is his lion heart put to work and used to serve others in the sixth house? This is one of the great joys of astrology.

CAREER IN ASTROLOGY

Seeing as a lot of people find astrology useful in terms of guidance with careers and such, I decided to make a post pointing out some of the best places to look for suitable career paths in the natal chart!

The Midheaven/10th House Cusp: Not surprisingly, this is a good place to start. As the highest point in the chart it shows us who we grow to be and further more careers that we would excel in. Looking at the planets and aspects here can show us the nature of our career lives.

Moon Placements: Of course we all want careers where we feel happy and nourished, looking at where the Moon is in our chart will show us what’s necessary for us to truly content, inevitably telling us what we will and won’t appreciate in our careers.

Saturn Placements: Not only the ruler of the MC, Saturn shows us where we work hard, where we need to push ourselves to the limit. While it’s not always necessary of course, by choosing a career path that appeals to our Saturn, we’re more likely to make peace with our Saturn issues (having to actually work with them) and as a result, reap more benefits when the Saturn return comes around. 

2nd House: The 2nd House while not the house of career, is the house of finance. We can combine the information we learn from our 2nd House with that of our 10th House to understand where we’re good at making money (2nd House) and applying it to what we’re talented in (10th House)

6th House: While this is more so the house of menial work, or serving others, it shows us how we can help others and what we’re skilled in. This can also help us choose a career that plays to our strengths. 

Midheaven Persona Chart: While Persona charts are more advanced and I would recommend them to people who are already comfortable interpreting charts, they’re very helpful when looking at a specific placement. They put the placement under a microscope and help us interpret the ins and outs of the 10th House Cusp more accurately.

a different look at stellia

do any of you actually feel like, rather than “being good” in the area of life indicated by a house stellium, you struggle way more than others? i feel like it’s because there’s so many planets in the way. we have to work through them first before we can take care of that life area. i think kayla from @astrologanize feels like this about her 3rd house stellium and i feel like that about my 11th house stellium… having an empty house may be a blessing after all because it makes it a lot more simple to approach that area of life. however, stellia do show a huge potential for growth and development.

  • 1st house stellium: identity crisis
  • 2nd house stellium: struggle with finance and self-worth
  • 3rd house stellium: problems expressing thoughts and opinions
  • 4th house stellium: family problems, crisis at home
  • 5th house stellium: struggle to find passion (regarding hobbies or sex)
  • 6th house stellium: health problems, struggle to organize daily life
  • 7th house stellium: struggle with relationships
  • 8th house stellium: struggle with intimacy and sharing secrets
  • 9th house stellium: struggle to find a belief system
  • 10th house stellium: indecisive about career, struggle with authorites
  • 11th house stellium: struggle to find belonging and fit in
  • 12th house stellium: struggle with alone time and selfless service

anonymous asked:

my moms trying to guilt trip me into living with her after graduation. I already made up my mind and I'm moving out. I'll probably stay with her for like a year so I can work and get money but that's it. she's thing to scare me into staying and it's working... how the fuck am I supposed to pay for insurance, food, medicine, house shit, an actual apartment? I can't do it

Hi darling, xx

I totally understand where you’re coming from. As someone who’s trying to move out, I feel your pain about feeling like parents are attempting to guilt trip you into staying at home. 

Moving out is a scary thing to do, my brother was actually kicked out because of anger and other reasons. & from what I’ve gathered from him, he wishes he would have stayed at home and make the best of living at home. My brother is 21 and he has a job and he’s also going to school. He’s got his own apartment and such. 

I personally struggle with the whole thought of moving out, I mean, I may not like living at home but I think about the following things and it makes me feel a tad bit better.

  • Your parents go grocery shopping
  • You have a washed & dryer that you can use for free (plus you’ll always have clean clothes.)
  • You’ll get to see your pets all time (if you’ve got pets that is.)
  • Benefits such as being on your parents healthcare and insurance
  • Rides to places if you don’t drive yet
  • Help with anything you’re going though
  • FREE RENT!
  • Your own room where you can do what you please
  • You wont have to pay for your own internet/cable or phone bills (well, at least I don’t)

Hun moving out is something that you need to be ready for and from your ask, it doesn’t seem like you’re reading yet and that’s totally okay. I can admit I’m not ready to move out, even though I would love to. I know that I’m not going to be able to take care of myself without my mom. As hard as it was to say that, its true.

Once you’ve checked out those links, I have some general advice for you on how you can cope with how you’re feeling.

  • Talk to your parents. Let me know how you’re feeling & what’s going on.
  • Give them examples of how you’re feeling
  • SHOW your parents that you’re ready to move out by being more independent  
  • Allow yourself to express how you’re feeling in a healthy manner
  • Ask your parents for more freedom around the house or even just small things such as saying you’ll do the dishes tonight because you love your parents.
  • Do some kind things for your friends and family, show them that you’re ready to be on your own :)
  • Keep an open mind about everything, being an adult isn’t the funnest things I’ve done.

Keep me updated? x
