Horoscope for May 6th, 2016
  • Aries:The opportunity to travel, perhaps with friends or a group you belong to, could come your way today. Discussions with others could lead to the confirmation of practical arrangements. You might also seek to advance your education, as your intellect is especially active now. Whatever new experiences come your way could lead to new paths, interests, and opportunities. Don't let doubts or fears get in your way.
  • Taurus:An increased focus, clarity of mind, and sense of concentration could lead to success in career matters and increased income. Intuition can provide practical guidance to help you advance. A male friend might give you some good advice with regard to savings plans, investments, or a more efficient use of resources. This could be a fruitful day that opens new doors for you. Make the most of it!
  • Gemini:Invitations to attend social events, perhaps business related, could bring surprising results. You might meet more than one person who shares some of your interests, and these people could become friends. Expect some interesting practical and philosophical discussions. An opportunity to travel abroad or to a distant state might open up for you. This could prove to be a most exciting and stimulating day. Make the most of it!
  • Cancer:While you may not have been feeling quite your usual self over the past day or two, today you're likely to be feeling mentally and physically stronger and more focused. You could discuss new ideas for future projects, either personal or business, and formulate plans of action. Your financial future could be on your mind. This is the day to look into ways to ensure it. Enjoy your day.
  • Leo:A date with a significant other could bring up discussions about plans for the future. Talk could run the gamut of all your concerns, from the practical to the artistic to business to philosophical matters. The overall impact of this might be that it brings the two of you closer together. You might decide to partner on some kind of creative project.
  • Virgo:A number of visitors could come to your home today, and a number of fascinating subjects could come up in the course of your conversation. Some interesting ideas might come directly or indirectly from these discussions. You might want to put them to use formulating plans of action to make your future more fulfilling. Professional, financial, and spiritual opportunities could all open up for you. Go for it!
  • Libra:Some short trips in your neighborhood and contact with neighbors or visitors to your community could bring some interesting information your way. It gets you thinking about ways to improve your socioeconomic status and probably your professional standing. Spiritual and philosophical discussions could also take place. In addition, your insights can prove as valuable as any outside information. Trust your intuition and follow your heart.
  • Scorpio:A talent for interior decoration that you may or may not have been aware of could inspire you to do some work on your home. You'll probably consider a lot of different options and make long lists of possibilities. Discussions with friends and family members can bring new ideas to mind. You might want to take a chance and try something a little different. Go to it and have fun.
  • Sagittarius:Spiritual and intellectual matters may be very much on your mind. A lot of ideas could have come your way, although until now they may not have been very focused. Today, however, your mind should be clear enough to write down your thoughts and read the works of others in order to gain more insight. The possibility of a short trip out of town could also arise. Enjoy your day.
  • Capricorn:Although your mind may have been a bit clouded over the past few days, today the fog should clear and you'll feel more focused. Money matters might need some attention, and you're in just the right space to dig in and take care of them. Once practical matters are settled, however, this is a great day for spiritual studies or meditation. Creative projects can also benefit from your increased concentration.
  • Aquarius:Stimulation that you could receive today from group activities might open doors to a wealth of rich experiences. Your innate organizing talents may be called upon. Discussions with others lead to a new understanding of social, spiritual, or political philosophies and expand your intellectual horizons. An increased ability to concentrate can lead to success with whatever you try to accomplish. Go for it!
  • Pisces:Uncertainty about professional matters can lead to an increased determination to get ahead, despite confusion as to how to do it exactly. It might be wise to do some research, organize all your information, and use that to formulate a plan of action. The resulting advancement may be slow moving, but it's sure and steady. A wealth of experience that enriches your life should follow.

When Hewlett met Abe — wigs off! — in the dead of the night to make the agreement, he pressed Abe to tell him the names of his co-conspirators. Abe retorted: “why do you care?” Hewlett responds: “I don’t. But there is something that I care very deeply about.” Someone: Anna. Hewlett, deep down, we believe, expects that she might be a spy. He desperately just doesn’t want to know.

It’s hard to know what the future holds for Anna and Hewlett. Does she love him? Or does she love that he loves her, in a deep, abiding, equitable and respectful way that Abe seems to find difficult. Note that Abe cannot even thank Anna appropriately for an excellent plan, while Hewlett frets: “I thought you would be more pleased that your trap has been set” The contrast is stark. Hewlett grants Anna ownership of her ideas and intellect, Abe can barely grasp at that.


Great recap from TheDeadDrop! (

This is a REALLY interesting theory. I like the idea that Hewlett suspect her, because it may make it easier if and when he does find out.

anonymous asked:

There seems to be some push-back recently against "posing" as 'masc' or 'straight-acting', but it seems just as dismissive of those who are gay and also just are naturally that way (or are more comfortable being that way for now, and might evolve in their own time). There's such judgment both ways. I honestly love you and your friends b/c you challenge the idea that physical appearance has anything to do with mannerisms, speech, intellect, etc.

i don’t think the recent push-back is against ‘masc’ as much as it is a push-back against the concept of masc being more superior to guys who are more fem. that concept is so tired to me.

nobody has a problem with a homo who enjoys things that society deems as being traditionally masc, but when a guy uses those masculine interests to belittle a guy who perhaps enjoys make up or enthusiastic hand movements, well i’m not here for that.

Headcannon: Remus knew that he couldn't bite Sirius, obvs, so Sirius takes advantage of that and just. bites him. Whenever he wants. At the Great Hall for breakast, when Remus falls asleep in class, in the middle of his studying. In bed. And Remus gets super frustrated that he can't retaliate properly so he punishes Sirius by teasing him constantly. James and Peter roll their eyes constantly at these nerds.

remus utilizes his mastery in hardcore, deadpan sarcasm to completely own sirius all the time. 


“oh nice, i got exemplary marks on our last transfiguration essay”

“well we all know it obviously wasn’t because of your intellect. how many galleons did u slip mcgonagall?”

'i support logic' nah, u wouldn't know logic if it drilled a hole thru ur bloated, nightmare-inducing,frothing face (to go with ur sickening personality and subpar intellect. no wonder u're friends with narusasuprevails) with a jackhammer. whoever traumatized u by shitting on ur feelings,turning u into this miserable joke still spreading their anti nar garbage around (do suffer more:) can't have been completely wrong. doubt they'll be the last, either.

NH has no logic

@narusasu-prevails get a load of this guy

But you must not take this warning of mine to mean that I propose to give you dogmatic lectures and to insist on your unqualified belief. Such a misunderstanding would do me a grave injustice. I do not wish to arouse conviction; I wish to stimulate thought and to upset prejudices.

If as a result of lack of knowledge of the material you are not in a position to form a judgement, you should neither believe nor reject. You should listen and allow what I tell you to work on you. It is not so easy to arrive at convictions, or, if they are reached easily, they soon turn out to be worthless and incapable of resistance.

The only person who has a right to a conviction is someone who, like me, has worked for many years at the same material and who, in doing so, has himself had the same new and surprising experiences.

What is the good, then, in the sphere of the intellect, of these sudden convictions, these lightning-like conversions, these instantaneous rejections? Is it not clear that the ‘coup de foudre‘, love at first sight, is derived from quite another sphere, from that of the emotions?

We do not even require of our patients that they should bring a conviction of the truth of psycho-analysis into the treatment or be adherents of it. Such an attitude often raises our suspicions. The attitude that we find the most desirable in them is a benevolent scepticism.

So you too should endeavour to allow the psycho-analytic view to grow up quietly in you alongside of the popular or psychiatric one, till opportunities arise for the two to influence each other, to compete with each other and to unite in leading to a conclusion.

Kendrick gets to be as superficial as he wants with his Kunta Kente aesthetic and his intellect and “pro blackness” doesn’t get questioned but Beyoncé has to constantly prove herself ?

What is this mind? Who is hearing these sounds? Do not mistake any state for self realization. But continue to ask yourself even more intensely. What is it that hears?   Who is hearing? Your physical being doesn’t hear. Nor does the void. Then what does? Strive to find out. Put aside your rational intellect. Give up all techniques. Just get rid of the notion of self.

(Bassui Tokusho. Rinzai Zen Master. 1327-1387)

You value intellect and place it above all else. You have difficulty expressing your emotions in relationships and have trouble forming intimate connections. You have high expectations for not only yourself but others as well. You are creative and resolve conflicts easily but aren’t as receptive to other people’s emotional needs.

You seek out long-term relationships however find it hard to leave toxic ones. You tend to be a little reserved and need the right person to open up to. You will make a great parent one day.

Jin Palm Reading

Last, but not least, handsome Jjin!!! Many have had trouble understanding what he said, so as requested, I’ve written it down. He slurs and mumbles a lot so there might be some missing/omitted words lol.  He uses terminology that is common in palm reading, so I suggest try looking them up.

For the other members, follow the bts palm reading tag :)

“Here is a request from ______  for South Korean singer BTS Jin.

Now his hands… tells me his talent. Because of the length of the fingers. His hands also tell me that he’s good at not always telling the truth. He could flip things to the way he wants it. And this comes from the little pinky finger. Anybody with a bent pinky finger or twisted pinky finger.. this is the Mercury, this is the intellect,  to turn things around. You’ll probably find a lot of politicians that’s got that same thing.

Anyway, he’s got a nice square hand. Hardworking hand, his thumbs are low-set. I think he’s lived a lot a lot of lifetimes. Has a lot of different personalities. Has great wisdom in the lower thumbs. He’s like a mystic in so many different ways. And the flexibility of his will leads him into anything he wants to do and he sees everything as being okay. 

The balance of his fingers are beautiful. And the length of his fingers, as I’ve said before are very very beautiful. And the finger itself, tells me has confidence in being who he’s being. But he likes to be patted on the back, he likes to be recognized. He likes to seen as somebody very very special (You are special to me, Jin ;o;) These are very important to him to have this ego thing working for him. 

Now the finger of Saturn here, that’s his structure of life. The Karma.. and the purpose. And the purpose here, is coming into thinking, the being and the doing. He has a very little line of love which he’ll learn later on in life, but the line, at this time, his head line is very very strong. 

Again, I see some movement coming down here, out of Apollo, which means he’s got more talent than he really knows(cries ;A;) and more stuff is gonna come out of him. I really think he’s gonna be an independent and do very well for himself.“

That’s it! It’s all complete~ Thanks for following this tag ;)

“To begin, I would ask you to call to mind a symbol for the word magic, to consider this for a moment. Now choose a symbol for the word intellect. These are yours, and you must hold onto them. […] Now I would ask you to take the two symbols you have chosen, one for magic and one for intellect, and that you paint these above a portal within your mind. Placed together they now form a new word, and that work is: IMAGINATION. Reading this word we know we are about to enter a room that is likely to be playful, provoking, perhaps astonishing; a room of wonders. Perhaps it will offer a glimpse into the restless and rebounding nature of the creative imagination. In that room it is likely that nothing is tethered to the floor. We enter as if entering a dream.”
