People born with natal retrodgrade planets can spend more time in self reflection, ensuring that the qualities of the sign have been satisfied on a deeper, more spiritual way. Retrograde planets take a backward step and spend longer in the sign and house. As the Earth passes the planet in orbit it appears to go backward. From the point of view of the horoscope, it does move backwards. Psychologically, this means the planet is going to reverse direction and go back over area it has just crossed.
Is this information valid?
Do my thoughts match up with my inner values?
Is this the right occasion to share my thoughts?
Do I need to be alone to figure this out?
Do I need to gather more information?
- Does this person reflect my value systems?
Did I react appropriately to the social situation?
Do my actions really reflect my morals?
Was how I acted fair?
Did I treat that person correctly?
- Was that the right outlet for my energy?
What am I really desiring?

I want to know more about this American house I supposedly belong to. What are the colors? I mean really. Is the mascot for Thunderbird an ACTUAL Thunderbird or is it a cockatiel? Tell me about famous witches and wizards from my house. Did anyone build a secret chamber of demonic house elves? Do the staircases move? Are there floors that are off limits? What is the password to my common room? Or is it called a dorm? I NEED MORE INFORMATION.
Often times, saying “Well you have OCPD, so of course you’re very neat and organized” is like saying “Well you’re severely mentally ill, so of course you’re emotionally stable and have everything figured out.”
Most of us struggle a lot with keeping out spaces organized because
-there’s so much we feel needs to get done that we get overwhelmed and end up being unable to do any of it
-we want to organize things perfectly, but since that’s impossible, we put it off or end up not doing it because we’re at a loss of what to do
If someone who has OCPD has a neat and organized space, chances are they worked really, really hard to overcome these things and have spent countless hours at it. Please be aware of this and don’t accidentally invalidate us by pretending like it’s easy.
“I have no knowledge of babies” - Sherlock Holmes x Reader
#9. Shopping for baby supplies. Yay some more Sherlock ! I fucking love that show…anyway, I really hope Sherlock isn’t OOC, I really tried to make it as in character as possible…AS USUAL, ANY FEEDBACK IS WELCOME :D…I really hope you guys will like it :
Before meeting you, Sherlock never thought about having children.
Hell, he never even thought about having sex at all ! It just wasn’t something that ever interested him. He always pegged such activities as a big waste of time, utterly useless. And yet, when he met you, all of his strong beliefs in the subject shattered. He already felt very strange when he met “the woman”, Irene Adler, but you ? Oh it was something else.
For starter, you were way smarter than Irene, and that was saying a lot. You often found solutions to problems before Sherlock, which he thought was infuriating…and yet which also made him extremely attracted by you. You quickly plagued his every thoughts, and he found himself craving for your presence more than once. When he confessed those weird things he was feeling to John, the ex-military doctor chuckled and told him :
-There’s nothing weird in what you’re feeling Sherlock, you’re probably just sapiosexual. Which would explain a lot.
-Excuse me ?
-You’re sexually attracted by intelligence. Only, so far, you never met anyone that was smart enough to take your fancy.
-My brother is more intelligent than me and I don’t…
-…Of course you had to make it weird. You know damn well what I mean, and you’re lying to yourself if you say you don’t feel something when (Y/N) is around.
-I feel things alright, I just don’t know how to explain them.
-Some feelings cannot be explain. They’re just there. In your heart, in your mind, everywhere in your being.
Artsy things in exchange for health fund donations ^_^
First of all, thank you for your help so far! ^_^ I’m blown away by your well-wishes and financial help. Thank you, thank you. You’re the bestesttt! :D
So here’s the update: I was able to get the scan I needed yesterday, and now we have more information about the mass in my lower abdomen. Apparently there is a mass on myovary. It is big enough (approx 5cmx4cmx3cm) to be touching my uterus. Here is my shitty drawing of the initial result of the CT scan:
Will post the official results when I get them (within 24 hours). But what we know so far is that the mass is twisting and untwisting, choking the ovary and nudging the uterus.
The OBs projected that the official results would that mass be surgically removed. So yasss imma need financial help for my future operation. The private hospital quoted $2000-$4000 for the operation (excluding doctor’s fee and meds), but we’re looking into cheaper options in public hospitals (which are not actually completely free).
If you donate $5 or more to my PayPal, I will make an artsy thing for you. You can choose from any of these:
My PayPal is email@example.com, and any help is appreciated! Once you donate, just send a screenshot of your transaction and your artsy thing of choice. Also send your url on tumblr or ig so I can give you a shoutout! :)
I would like to stress that, NO, you’re NOT required to donate. Just keeping me in your thoughts is enough. If you believe in a god, can you please say a prayer for me too?
Pls pls pls signal boost! :) Thank you! Maraming salamat! :)
So I felt the need to make this post because I’ve been getting a lot of emails asking me for collabs but there are a lot of things that are a bit off in these emails so I wanted to clarify for yall how to ask someone for a collab.
1. BE PROFESSIONAL. NUMBER ONE RULE.
Write these emails like you’re writing a school email. I’m not super picky about formatting or “dear star” at the top or something, but you can’t send me an email that just says “u want to collab? I need voice for fandub” Or something like that. 100% of the time if you send me an email like this, I will not reply. I simply dont have time to email back and have an email chain figuring out what you mean. Try to use complete sentences, and spell words correctly. Also stay away from “u” and stuff like that, because it doesn’t look professional at all.
2. INCLUDE INFORMATION ABOUT THE PROJECT
This is the biggest one I have an issue with. If you don’t have a previous channel or any other previous work, that’s completely fine. I am perfectly open to working with people who haven’t done anything online before. However, you need to show me something. A preview, a sample of the voice acting, a demo of the game, something like that. Also, include information about what you precisely would need from me. “I would like you to voice this character, in this particular voice, and here is a sample of the lines I would need.” is a good example. If you’re not set on the lines or what kind of voice you need that’s fine, I dont need something really specific, just a rough estimate or more information about the project.
3. IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO JOIN OUR CHANNEL AS A POSSIBLE VOICE ACTOR, SEND A DEMO REEL. IF YOU DO NOT INCLUDE A DEMO REEL IN THE ORIGINAL EMAIL, I WILL NOT RESPOND BECAUSE I SIMPLY DO NOT HAVE TIME.
I get about 4-5 emails daily asking if someone could join the channel as a possible voice actor. I’m completely open to adding people as possible voice actors, I’ve done it many times before, but you NEED to send me a demo reel if you’re looking to join or have an established channel or work that I can check out. It’s as simple as that. Remember, your voice is your trade. You need to showcase your trade.
4. DO NOT BE SELF-DEPRECATING IN THESE EMAILS.
Nothing makes me want to delete an email more than reading the words: Here’s my demo reel, it’s so bad don’t look at it. I’m not saying you should send me an email saying “I AM THE BEST VOICE ACTOR IN THE WORLD HIRE ME”, but try to remember that when you’re sending me a demo reel or something like that you’re sending me an audition. If you walked into any audition and told the director not to listen to you, they would send you out of the room. I’m going to do the same. You’re an actor, you’re selling yourself. A better way to word it if you’re not sure about your audition is to say: “I’m still working on it, could I get some constructive feedback?” That right there is WAY better than “this is so bad.” I know this is a weird thing to be picky about, but I get a lot of these types of emails and it weighs on me.
5. DONT SEND ME “CAN YOU CRITIQUE MY UNDERTALE AU?” just dont do it. I’d love to check out a comic or something, but I know nothing about creating AUs.
AND THATS IT! I know I was a little strict in this post, don’t let that stop you from sending me an email! I love what I do and I love meeting new people through the internet, I just felt the need to share with you guys the best way to send emails because then you have a better chance of getting in contact with me! Plus this is helpful for people who don’t really know how to send these types of emails, and don’t beat yourself up if you didn’t know. Also just because why not, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Augmented Reality Sandbox at Concord University
Today was the first time since its update (and first time at all for us) that we have gotten to play with the AR Sandbox.
An Xbox 360 Kinect Sensor captures the image of the sand in a live feed. It links to a projector that projects images (contour lines/colors/etc) onto the sand. It uses a software (I’m not sure the name off the top of my head, but it is free) that is responsible for the projections. Though the software itself is free, it requires very specific components to work properly (only runs on a certain version of Linux, requires a specific version of Kinect sensor, graphics card, etc). I can get more information if needed :)
This nifty tool provides students and others an opportunity to build mountains, valleys, and other structures and see contouring in real time as well as how structures affect the area in general. By holding your hand over the map, you can also generate rainfall!!
It was the big hitter of the geology department today.
(I’m trying to upload a video but it is not wanting to go up.)
Hey Cap! Could you possibly do a fix it of Alex and/or Maggie going with Kara to the restaurant? So mad we only got like 15 secs of Alex and no Maggie... Thank you!
“Maggie, what – what are you doing here?”
“Sorry, Little Danvers – Alex sent me, she’s working late but she forgot her jacket last night – “
“Yeah, it’s by the door – “
know. Listen, um… Lena called. I let it go to voicemail, didn’t want
to be intrusive, but I couldn’t stopper my ears – said something about
wanting you to talk her out of going to dinner with some Jack guy?”
Kara groans and runs her hands over her hair, frowning.
“Come on,” she says suddenly, tugging at Maggie’s arm.
“Um, okay, where are we – “
“You’re a cop. And I’m a reporter. And I think Jack’s little robots are a big problem. Plus Lena needs me to save her.”
save her.” Maggie’s tone managed to be bemused, even as she’s being
dragged out the door by Supergirl in a blue sweater and deeply gay
Kara flushes. “From her date. With her ex. Jack. Jack’s her ex. They used to date.”
“I know what an ex is, Sunshine.”
Kara turns and squint-glares at her sister’s girlfriend before continuing.
I have to save her. He forced her to choose – him or L Corp, I mean,
who would do that, right, why can’t she have both, I mean sure he seems
like a nice enough guy, and he’s certainly handsome, but making her
choose, I mean come on, right, that’s not okay, and now he’s back in
town just to, what, get her back? – and now he’s taking her to dinner,
and ughhh, I should have been there to take that phone call – “
“Slow down, Kara,” Maggie says, tugging Kara away from the driver’s seat of Maggie’s own car. “You’re spiraling. I’m driving.”
Kara grimaces and shuffles to the passenger’s seat.
Maggie stares at her thoughtfully as they both get in.
“Kara, you um… Does it bother you? That Jack and Lena used to date?“
She keeps her voice deliberately casual and her eyes deliberately on the road as she starts to drive.
me?” She can practically hear Kara fidgeting with her glasses,
practically see the disbelieving – denial – grin of incredulity on her
face, even though she’s keeping her eyes carefully ahead. “Pfft. No!
Why… why would it bother me? Lena can date anyone she wants! In the
past and future, and… and present… Lena’s her own woman, she can do
what she wants!”
“And it doesn’t bother you. At all.”
“Are you implying something, Maggie?”
There’s an edge to Kara’s voice, a slight bite, and Maggie retreats, because god, god, god, Alex’s kid sister can’t hate her.
“Nope. Sorry Kara, just… just making conversation. So tell me about your suspicions about Biomax.”
settles and fills Maggie in along the way, and when Maggie suggests
that maybe Kara should text first to tell Lena that she’s about to crash
her date, Kara splutters.
“She needs rescuing, Maggie. It’s part of my job. And yours, too. And I need more information from this Jack character.”
just grimaces, and remembers the days when she thought Kara was too
polite to get what she wanted. She almost chuckles to herself, but
suddenly she’s finding herself face-to-face with a woman she’s arrested,
and god, does the woman look arresting.
“Lena,” she offers, an
apology in her eyes, and Lena’s are wary but mostly fixed on Kara.
Maggie watches the two of them, even as she introduces herself to Jack,
apologizes for the intrusion, congratulates him on his press conference,
because even if Kara wants to dive straight into vaguely accusatory
questions, Maggie prefers a different approach. In this context, anyway.
So she listens quietly as Kara asks Jack questions.
sits back and lets her eyes flit between Lena’s teary ones and Kara’s
uncharacteristically hard to read ones – but Maggie thinks she sees
jealousy in them, or maybe fear of loss, or maybe, she thinks, they’re
the same thing – while Jack weaves some poetry about a sunrise and
starlings and Lena this and come back to me that.
silence and Maggie’s heart hurts for Lena, for Kara, but Kara is leaning
forward, and she’s shattering the silence with an ice pick.
“Anyway, I was also wondering – ”
“Another time,” Jack says, his eyes never leaving Lena’s face.
Kara splutters, and Maggie thinks this Danvers might be even harder to get out of the closet than her sister.
“Lena, are – are you… uh…”
“Yeah, I think Jack and I need to talk.”
“That’s… fine,” Kara is almost squeaking, and Maggie is grabbing her knee under the table.
course. Lena, it was good seeing you again, under… better
circumstances. Jack. Kara, come on,” she adds softly at the end,
standing and putting her hand on Kara’s shoulder and hoping Kara doesn’t
heat vision it off her body.
“Lena, I’ll… I’ll see you soon, then?” Kara asks, hope in her voice.
“Yes, yes, of course, Kara,” Lena breathes, her eyes still on her ex, and Maggie thinks she knows those eyes.
Those eyes that are still so scared by the past that they’re more ready to go back into it than dive ahead into the future.
Or, in this case, into Kara Danvers.
know, if you want to get into Jack’s office, I can get you a warrant,”
Maggie mutters to Kara on their way out of the restaurant.
“So you didn’t believe him?” Kara perks up.
I believe him, alright. But something’s also… off. About him. About
this whole… thing. Two men being killed in an attack like this? The
whistleblower, someone who was corroborating his story to your boss?”
“Ex boss. Something’s going on. It’s enough to go on, Kara.”
They pile back into her car and Maggie stares at her sister’s girlfriend for a long moment before starting the ignition.
“Don’t give up on Lena. She hasn’t given up on you.”
“How do you – ”
“I’m a detective, Little Danvers. I detect.”
“Does Alex – ”
“Kara, please, Alex barely knew she was gay herself until it punched her in the face.”
“I’m not – ”
so bi. Ace. Both. Either way. Your girl crush is safe with me until
you’re ready to come out. But Kara, listen: just don’t let her go, okay?
Life is too short to… just don’t give up, alright?”
Kara fidgets and her cheeks go bright red and she looks like she’s about to panic, about to cry, about to scream.
“Let’s get that warrant, Maggie. I can worry about getting the girl after we make sure she’s not in any danger.”
“That’s the spirit, Little Danvers. That’s the spirit.”
Kara returns the grin despite herself, because maybe, just maybe, everything isn’t ending after all.
Guys! I just had this crazy idea. Hamilton is set in such a long time period, that if a movie should ever come out, it might be hard to make very great. But what about a historical TV show?
We all know and love these historical shows, like The Borgias, Reign and Tudors, to name a few. Hamilton would make an awesome TV show that would teach us about the American Revolution.
The show could for example have two or three seasons. Either act I and act II or like season one: before the war, season two: during the war and season three: a-after the war. Every episode could represent one song from the workshop?
I mean, we need more information. We want flashbacks to the Caribbean. What about Burr, sir’s family and Theodosia sr? Valley Forge? Jeffersons’ time in Paris? Ben Franklin?
What do you think? Is this idea completely stupid?
how do i create characters that feel clearly different from each other, but while still making sense as to why they get along?
Thanks so much for your question, love! I’m gonna have to clarify on something, but I’ll give you a few different takes to hopefully help you :)
Reading your question, I wasn’t quite sure what to make of the idea of “feeling different from each other,” as that can mean a few different things. It could be anything from feeling differently about wanting children to disagreeing on the death penalty, and those are two very complex situations. So you’ll need to identify on what level your characters disagree: situational, moral, or personal. I covered this very briefly in this post, but I’ll expand here.
Situational Conflicts – These conflicts are the easiest on relationship as they’re usually short-term and less personal than other conflicts. The disagreement arises from a current situation – the two characters may disagree on a course of action or how a problem will play out, putting them at odds with each other. The more important the issue is (or the more frequently it comes up), the more awkward or even contentious interactions can be. Discussion, compromise, or altogether ignoring the issue/allowing someone else to make the decision will reduce tension.
Moral Conflicts – These conflicts are much harder on a relationship, as they have more to do with the people involved.
This involves beliefs on religion, ethics, politics, etc., and can be spurred by situational conflicts. Moral disagreements can weed their way into many situations, so they have to be either purposefully avoided/ignored or resolved in order to maintain “normal” interactions.
Personal Conflicts – Lastly, the deepest and most difficult conflict in a relationship – personal conflicts, including past hurts, different desires for the relationship, different methods of emotional expression, and so forth. While these disagreements can be ignored day-to-day, they color how two people see each other, and can prevent further relationship development. The more emotionally-charged these disagreements are, the easier it is to hurt each other. Personal conflicts can only be ignored for a short amount of time, and rarely can two people “agree to disagree” on them.
Overall, situational and moral conflicts can reach a point of mutual disagreement without being contentious. Many people navigate those differences through humor and teasing each other, engaging in respectful (or sometimes heated) debates once in a while, or completely avoiding the topic. But personal conflicts can only be ignored on the surface. If your characters disagree on something major, it’ll be difficult to “get along.”
Just remember to have some areas in the characters’ lives where they do connect, so they have something else keeping them talking. No two people disagree on everything and still want to hang out!
Anyway, that’s all I can give you without more information. If you need further help, be sure to let us know in the future :) Thanks again!
so we got a little peek at major’s family, which reminds me… where the fuck is liv’s??? like the s1 cliff hanger was literally her brother dying and then we just never see him or liv’s mom again?? like i know her mom was PISSED and told liv to leave them alone but? it’s like they never existed?
