I love, love!

Venus in the 12th: I fear love and will hide it from others, but I absolutely admire the idea of it, of all forms of love, Divine love. I want to serve and heal the world with my love. I want to dissolve into love. Constantly generating fictional romances in my head, I dream of Love. I just want to melt into someone and them into me

Pluto in the 5th: I want my romantic relationships to go beyond the material realm. I want it to penetrate my soul, to kill me and revive me. I wanna know all the mysteries of love.

Neptune in the 7th: I want to save someone and I want someone to save me. Astrologer Isabel Hickey describes this position as “Gives a constant yearning for perfection.” The 7th house is what we project because it’s what we wish to find in ourselves through others. I seek perfection of myself through finding the “perfect” and ideal partner. I seek completion and redemption through love, a celestial Union

Libra moon: I am a lonely person ok?? Nothing wrong with that! I daydream of love. Diurnal Venus, the part of Venus focused on connectivity, relationship and Union works through me so it’s a concept I find very important. The moon=emotional needs & Venus=affection/love; I genuinely feel like I need love. I want to experience joining into One with someone, sounds magical. I want to find someone who will complete my emotional hollowness

Gemini venus: I’m indecisive about love, but curious about it. I talk about it, I think about it, and I want to learn more about it!! The butterfly fitting from one flower to the next, tasting all the sweet nectar. What is love? Why is it like that? So many questions about it

Venus conjunct mercury: Love is always on my mind!!! I sing and speak the love principles!! I want to learn more about love

Venus conjunct mars: sooo passionate about love, I’ll fight for it. I value and appreciate Love as a whole. My adrenaline senses are stimulated by love, sparks that birth a flame in my heart

Venus trine moon: Love is internalized, it’s embedded into my soul. I’m emotional about love, it’s a beautiful thing. Love becomes an emotional need. I want love that brings me comfort and safety. I have midnight dreams about love

Venus trine Uranus: I want to spread love universally. I want electrifying and shocking romances. I want to innovate love in the world, to show that love comes in many forms and not only through conventional configurations

Concrete Houses in Buenos Aires

A robust concrete facade provides protection from traffic noise for these two houses squeezed onto a narrow plot in the Colegiales neighbourhood of Buenos Aires. Local architects María Victoria Besonías and Luciano Kruk developed the Two Houses Conesa project for a pair of families who own a site sandwiched between existing buildings in the residential district of the Argentinian city.

A ‘Forgotten History’ Of How The U.S. Government Segregated America

In 1933, faced with a housing shortage, the federal government began a program explicitly designed to increase — and segregate — America’s housing stock. Author Richard Rothstein says the housing programs begun under the New Deal were tantamount to a “state-sponsored system of segregation.”

The government’s efforts were “primarily designed to provide housing to white, middle-class, lower-middle-class families,” he says. African-Americans and other people of color were left out of the new suburban communities — and pushed instead into urban housing projects.

Rothstein’s new book, The Color of Law, examines the local, state and federal housing policies that mandated segregation. He notes that the Federal Housing Administration (FHA), which was established in 1934, furthered the segregation efforts by refusing to insure mortgages in and near African-American neighborhoods — a policy known as “redlining.” At the same time, the FHA was subsidizing builders who were mass producing entire white subdivisions — with the requirement that none of the homes be sold to African-Americans.

Rothstein says that these decades-old housing policies have had a lasting effect on American society. “The segregation of our metropolitan areas today leads … to stagnant inequality, because families are much less able to be upwardly mobile when they’re living in segregated neighborhoods where opportunity is absent,” he says. “If we want greater equality in this society, if we want a lowering of the hostility between police and young African-American men, we need to take steps to desegregate.”

Mallow Castle, County Cork, Ireland

Mallow Castle is a 33-acre site composed of gardens and parkland on which three buildings sit: the remains of a 16th-century fortified house (pictured above), a 19th-century mansion to the north, and the ruins of a 13th-century castle to the east. The fortified house is a long rectangular three-storey building, with two polygonal towers on the north-west and south-west corners. It is early Jacobean in style, featuring high gables, stepped battlements, and mullioned windows. The wings of the house project from the center of the south and north walls, with the entrance in the north wing. The design of the house was to provide a field of fire around it entirely.

The 16th-century  fortified house is believed to have been built by Sir Thomas Norreys before his death in 1599. Following his death, his niece Elizabeth and her husband Sir John Jephson inherited the house, with their family remaining in Mallow for almost 400 years. It was placed under siege by Richard Butler, Lord Mountgarret, in 1642 during the Irish Confederate Wars and did not fall. It was captured in 1645 by James Tuchet, Lord Castlehaven. The house was badly damaged by fire during the Williamite War and subsequently abandoned by the Jephsons. The Jephsons built the new mansion house on the site of the older castle’s stable block.

Cartomancy ABC Guide

What is Cartomancy?

Cartomancy is divining with playing cards.  Each card has a meaning and are interpreted by the reader who organizes them into certain spreads.  Spreads are the way that the playing cards are set onto the table and I’ll be talking about them more later.  Some readers integrate their spirituality into their readings, calling upon deities or spirit guides or connecting with their higher self.  Others may use their beliefs to explain how cartomancy works.

I use the joker to represent unlimited potential but I’ve seen various meanings.

Spreads

Here’s an example of a cartomancy spread:

A reader places a card on every rectangle pictured above.  They would then apply the meaning of the card to the situation it stands for.  A spread sets up the situation you are looking to divine about.   Here is a spread focusing on a person’s whole life but a reader could lay out a spread that’s centered on a person’s love, job opportunities, or present struggles.  

Cartomancy tips

  • If doing a face-to-face reading, it’s a good idea to ask the receiver to shuffle the cards.  This allows them to connect to the cards and engage in the reading.  
  • When you draw the cards, you can choose from the top of the deck or spread them out and choose whichever call to you. 
  • There is more to consider in cartomancy than the set card meanings.  A group of certain colored cards can be significant as can a group of court cards (kings, queens, jacks)
  • The more you know about the cards, the easier readings become.
… The layout of the high-rises was not optimal by any means, but this did not make the different between housing project 1960–a grungy place where not everybody worked for a living, best avoided after dark–into housing project 1990–the bloody “PJs” where most people did not work, best avoided at all times of day. The key here was the breakdown in earlier senses of propriety, that occurred in these projects and beyond throughout the sixties, as studies from the era clearly recall.

Have you ever, somewhere far back in your mind, felt just a little twinge when someone was mouthing the idea that poor blacks cannot be expected to live productive lives in tall, crowded buildings? I mean, a little twinge of the sort that we are trained, on the subject of race, to let pass? Well, attention must be paid to that twinge; go with it. Insisting that what created violent, smelly black housing projects was “concentration,” “density,” or even “root shock” is just shy of racism for whites, and in a black writer, suggests internalized feelings of racial inferiority.

Protective Tony x reader - part 2

A/N: Part 2 to “Protective Tony x reader” has finally arrive!!!!!!!

Warnings: Graphic descriptions and images of sex/sexual activities.


“Tony! Tony wait up!” I jog after him in the hallway.

“What the hell was that back there?” I pant out, once I’ve finally reached him.

 Tony sighs, turning around and looking at me.

“You’re my friend Y/N, I was just protecting you from Montgomery, that’s all.” He says. I look down, slightly in disappointment. Of course he’s just protecting me from Montgomery. That’s what friends do right? A little part of me wishes there was another reason behind why Tony acted the way he did in the cafeteria, but I know that the possibility is highly unlikely.
