house-of-lords

anonymous asked:

What do you think are placements that encourage an “I’m going to do something because someone told me not to” mindset?

from the top of my head:

  • any fire (especially Sagittarius)/Aquarius placements
  • strong mars/fire
  • Aries/Sagittarius/Fixed mars
  • strong 5th/1st house
  • Mars as the lord of the 7th house
  • Moon tightly aspecting Mars/maybe Uranus or Jupiter
  • Luminaries/Mars/Uranus in a fire house (the 9th not as much)
  • little Libra/Pisces/7th house/Venus influence
  • strong Capricorn only in cases where it’s about them supposedly not being able to do something

How the aristocracy preserved their power
After democracy finally shunted aside hereditary lords, they found new means to protect their extravagant riches. For all the modern tales of noble poverty and leaking ancestral homes, their private wealth and influence remain phenomenal
By Chris Bryant

This is long but great

Preliminary designs for ceiling panels in the Lords Chamber of the New Palace of Westminster (Houses of Parliament) by A. W. Pugin.

The medieval Palace was destroyed by fire in 1834 and rebuilt in Gothic Revival style by architect Charles Barry during Queen Victoria’s reign. Pugin designed most of the interior decoration and furnishings, including these designs for ceiling panels in the House of Lords. Each panel is made up of four interlocking tiles decorated with various heraldic symbols, including lions, unicorns, roses and crowns. Some of the designs include Queen Victoria’s “VR” (Victoria Regina) monogram or banners with “Dieu et mon droit” (God and my right), the personal motto of the sovereign written on them.

None of the preliminary designs were ever carried out.

SUPPRESSION IN EXPESSION

The sign ruling the 7th House and the planets in it show parts of our self-expression that we suppress to co-exist with others. The 7th House represents one-on-one interactions. In order for these one-on-one interactions to run smoothly, the egos of two people must be shared in harmony. With that in mind, parts of your ego will be hidden for the sake of compromise. Whatever is hidden will be shown in your 7th House. The lord of the 7th House will show why or how you suppress yourself.

For those with an interception in the 1st and 7th House, there is often a struggle to suppress your self-expressions, meaning that it can be difficult for you to blend in with others and co-exist. If there is a struggle to handling the self, there will definitely be a struggle in handling the other.

I think it's a rather lucky coincidence that creating Horcruxes makes you look snake like, instead of like another houses mascot. Lord Voldemort as a half man half honey badger hybrid would have been decidedly less terrifying.

you have very clearly never seen a honey badger

GRYFFINDOR: “Sons of Gondor! Of Rohan! My brothers! I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me! A day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship. But it is not this day. An hour of wolves and shattered shields when the age of Men comes crashing down! But it is not this day! This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good Earth, I bid you stand! Men of the West!” -Fran Walsh + Philippa Boyens (Aragorn: Lord of the Rings: Return of the King)
