how to be rich

jupiter-saturn aspects ♃♄

i’ve always loved how the glyphs for jupiter and saturn seemed to be inverses of each other; jupiter is lady luck, wherever it occupies comes naturally, it does not need a ton of focus on its own, but for that reason, it is lazy. putting energy toward your jupiter is how you can truly unlock its riches. saturn, on the other hand, is a looming threat. it requires great focus and is quite emotionally taxing, since it teaches you important life lessons. jupiter expands, saturn restricts. 

jupiter conjunct saturn: success seems to come slowly, but then all at once. may perceive oneself as a late-bloomer, but reap lasting gains for waiting. individuals with this placement might try to balance over-achieving with exerting the lowest possible effort, and the two playing on each other can be quite confusing and stressful. 

jupiter square/opposite saturn: grapples endlessly between the ends of optimism and pessimism, faith and dismay, ambition and skirting by. as saturn is the malefic, it can tend to hold more control of a square, necessitating the native to work hard to access jupiter’s potential rewards. i notice certain emotional shortcomings with the square, whether it be depression, anger, or other mental problems. this can be strain from these two entities battling. the square aspect embodies more of the struggle, while the opposition may embody more going back and forth between the two, embodying the extremes of each.

jupiter trine/sextile saturn: when these two planets are working well together, this may indicate a greater ability to put effort towards the future than the previously mentioned aspects. this might indicate the assistance of others in achieving your goals, like luke skywalker had obi-wan. those with this placement may not feel so strongly the limitations of time, and the fleetingness of it; rather, they may appreciate that things come in time and plan/invest accordingly.

jupiter inconjunct saturn: your greater benefic and malefic are completely at odds, indicating a vast struggle between the two archetypes. this will be exacerbated by their house placements. this can indicate a propensity for overexertion, swamping yourself with responsibilities and then realizing too late that you have bit off much more than you can chew (squares too, to an extent). this is because there can be over-confidence with this placement, a feeling of “only i can do this” in regards to a task. 

“Wow I can’t believe you let your family eat GMOs don’t you know how dangerous they are?”

Listen Carol I know its nice, being so rich and disconnected from reality that you can happily pay $8 for a bag of apples because of a sticker they slap on it but I’m on a fucking budget here so $5 for a bag is fucking plenty for me, you scientifically illiterate fuck. I’m just fine and dandy paying $4 for my gallon of milk, fuck off with your “b-but GMOs!” bullshit. You’d know full fucking well the mice they used in the study you flash around are Sprauge-Dawley rats and they’re SUPPOSED to grow tumors if you bothered to read the study, Janice. 

Retired Lt. Col. Ralph Peters called President-elect Donald Trump’s nominee for secretary of defense, Gen. James Mattis (ret.), a “man of intellect” on Friday.

Peters is a strong supporter of the “Warrior Monk,” as Mattis is known by to some.

After describing his past with Mattis and saying that the retired Marine general has a “deep, rich strategic understanding of how the world hangs together,” Peters said that he is a “man of noble spirit.”

Fox Business Network host Stuart Varney asked Peters if it is true that Mattis is an “intellectual.”

“He’s a man of intellect,” Peters said. “An intellectual is somebody who never does anything with his life except criticize others.”

Peters addressed the controversy surrounding Mattis’ confirmation process because the general will need a waiver from Congress to head the Pentagon since he has been a military officer within the past seven years, arguing that the country needs a general right now.

“Any nonsense from the left about, ‘Oh, the man on horseback,’ ‘we don’t want generals,’ look, for 16 years, civilians with no military experience have gotten us into one disasterous conflict and impetuous intervention after another,” Peters said. “Maybe it’s time to have a leader at Defense who’s seen his Marines die, who’s seen them be gravely wounded, who knows the cost, who knows the Middle East, who knows the world as it is, not seen through rose-colored glasses or a partisan lens.”

Peters concluded the segment by calling Mattis a “noble man.”

Surely you can afford to take time off work? You're the corporate heir, son of the chairman and you're rich as fuck, and yet you speak as if one missed day will kill you. I never thought I would see the day you abandoned family in favour of a job.

Do you people even know how jobs work? Is this how commoners believe rich people live? That I can just shed my responsibilities and that it’s just about money?

You don’t know anything, so don’t pretend like you do.

Last chance for Game Awards predictions. Will we finally get the Bloodborne PC port? Will Nintendo give us a single reason to buy their next console? Do you think we'll get to hear about how five rich white kids whose parents pay for them to live in Japan represent diversity in the medium again?

No, No, Maybe.

fuckin’ backpackers taking our jobs we don’t want to do


the dishes are piled in brown December light
the faucet pants and drools over the cracked refuse
that lays leftover from yesternight
i would clean them, but what’s the use?

how many sinks before have laid to rest
in rich household fecundity?
and how many after shall be washed and dressed?
circular pans hint at infinity

Hi! I was hoping I could have a little insight, because I've done some research but I'm still not totally sure how to do this. One of my characters is Super Rich and spoiled, and in this particular moment, he's getting super high with his FWB. Anyway, the drugs totally mess him up and he ends up stabbing FWB mid-hallucination/paranoia. Is there a drug that can do something like that? I had previously settled on PCP, but I'm not too sure about accuracy; can this happen at all? Thanks in advance!

Sure, paranoia is possible with a lot of things, especially hallucinogens. Research PCP, LSD and ketamine for starters. There’s a really good book called Buzzed! that’s helpful for reference on various drugs.

Good luck with your story! Disclaimer and all that.

There’s one big difference between the poor and the rich,” Kite says, taking a drag from his cigarette. We are in a pub, at lunch-time. John Kite is always, unless stated otherwise, smoking a fag, in a pub, at lunch-time.
“The rich aren’t evil, as so many of my brothers would tell you. I’ve known rich people – I have played on their yachts – and they are not unkind, or malign, and they do not hate the poor, as many would tell you. And they are not stupid - or at least, not any more than the poor are. Much as I find amusing the idea of a ruling class of honking toffs, unable to put their socks on without Nanny helping them, it is not true. They build banks, and broker deals, and formulate policy, all with perfect competency.
No – the big difference between the rich and the poor is that the rich are blithe. They believe nothing can every really be so bad. They are born with the lovely, velvety coating of blitheness – like lanugo, on a baby – and it is never rubbed off by a bill that can’t be paid; a child that can’t be educated; a home that must be left for a hostel, when the rent becomes too much.
Their lives are the same for generations. There is no social upheaval that will really affect them. If you’re comfortably middle-class, what’s the worst a government policy could do? Ever? Tax you at 90% and leave your bins, unemptied, on the pavement. But you and everyone you know will continue to drink wine – but maybe cheaper – go on holiday – but somewhere nearer – and pay off your mortgage – although maybe later.
Consider, now, then, the poor. What’s the worst a government policy can do to them? It can cancel their operation, with no recourse to private care. It can run down their school – with no escape route to a prep. It can have you out of your house and in a B&B by the end of the year. When the middle classes get passionate about politics, they’re arguing about their treats - their tax-breaks and their investments. When the poor get passionate about politics, they’re fighting for their lives.
Politics will always mean more to the poor. Always. That’s why we strike and march, and despair when our young say they won’t vote. That’s why the poor are seen as more vital, and animalistic. No classical music for us – no walking around National Trust properties, or buying reclaimed flooring. We don’t have nostalgia. We don’t do yesterday. We can’t bare it. We don’t want to be reminded of our past, because it was awful: dying in mines, and slums, without literacy, or the vote. Without dignity. It was all so desperate, then. That’s why the present and the future is for the poor - that’s the place in time for us: surviving now, hoping for better, later. We live now - for our instant, hot, fast treats, to pep us up: sugar, a cigarette, a new fast song on the radio.
You must never, never forget, when you talk to someone poor, that it takes ten times the effort to get anywhere from a bad post-code. It’s a miracle when someone from a bad post-code gets anywhere, son. A miracle they do anything at all.
