it varies from person to person

anonymous asked:

hi! If you dont mind could you explain what exactly the phrase 'fe-/male aligned' means? I keep seeing it around, but does it mean you identify partly as that gender or that you just somewhat relate to it, or...?

Kai says:

it’s however the person feels - I’m sure it varies from person to person. For me, I interpret it as a sort of “the way I am aligns with how people see ‘masculine’ folks” especially in my gender presentation and how I feel ‘masculine of center’.

Some other people might define male-aligned as “identifying as partially/mostly male” but I personally do not.

I think it’s totally up to the individual, honestly.

Followers, how do you define it in relation to yourself?

anonymous asked:

Hi! Can I ask you about sigils? What are the ways to charge them? I know it's varies from person to person but which one do you think is the most powerful? Thank you!

Either by drawing them on paper and burning them, drawing them on paper and adding a drop of blood (please don’t do this unless you have a sterilised needle and you are 100% sure you percent want this sigil to be permanently bound to you), running the sigil through incense, burying it, drawing it on your body, putting moon or solar water on it (or any sort of magickal water/oil), meditating on the sigil, releasing the sigil through fear or orgasm (chaos magick). I personally prefer just burning it because it’s the simplest and quickest way to do it, and it always works.

Communicating with autistic people

In light of April & autism acceptance month I thought I’d make a post about how autistic people communicate, because understanding and accepting our communication styles is one of the most important parts of autism acceptance. The things listed here are from my own experience and from information I have gathered from talking to other autistic people, it is by no means exhaustive. If you want to add something on I have missed feel free :+)

  • Lack of eye contact doesn’t mean we aren’t engaged, oftentimes maintaining eye contact is actually more distracting than not. 
  • Our body language is different. Trying to assume how we feel from your knowledge of body language will often lead you to wrong conclusions.

  • Our tone does not always indicate our feelings, it’s often more telling to listen to the words we are saying themselves then try to guess what our tone means
  • We will likely have difficulty reading your body language and tone. The subtleties of communication don’t come easy to us, if you want us to understand what you are feeling or offer support it is most useful to communicate your feelings thoughts and needs directly.
  • Things we say may come off as rude or overly blunt, even if it is not intended this way.
  • We have varying degrees of understanding sarcasm. Some of us struggle to understand any of it, some of us actively understand and employ it and everything in between. We are also prone to literal-mindedness in general meaning we may have trouble with taking other forms of jokes or figurative speech literally. 
  • Our communication abilities often vary with things like stress and sensory input. For example, under little stress or a good amount of sensory input I can communicate enough to explain detailed thoughts as in this post, form sentences and employ tone and cadence to my speech. At varying levels of sensory input I may begin to speak in monotone, take several minutes to put together a single sentence, or be unable to access most of my vocabulary aside from sounds and simple words like “yes” and “no”. 
  •  It is very common for autistic people to empathize by comparing similar experiences. (for example: person a: “My dog got sick, I’m worried about him.” autistic person: “Oh, my cat got sick last year too.”) People who do not empathize like this often see it as ‘one-upmanship’ when the intent is only to empathize or express sympathy. 
  •  We may interrupt you before you’re done speaking. It’s very common for autistic people to have difficulty telling when other people are finished speaking. If we interrupt you it is almost never out of rudeness but we genuinely cannot tell when is the right time to speak.
  •  We may occasionally take over the conversation especially with info-dumping. When I info-dump I’m very excited and I feel like I can barely keep the information I want to talk about down. Being so excited, I tend to ramble for a long time, elaborating unimportant details as I am unaware to whether the listener is bored or even listening. I’m not saying you have to stay completely engaged and remember every detail but at very least don’t get angry with an autistic person for their infodumping.
  •  A lot of autistic people also have auditory processing problems. This means that what you say might not register for a few moments or you might have to repeat yourself. Please be patient with somebody who has poor auditory processing, as it’s not really something we can help. 
  •  If you are asking the autistic person to do a task or activity of any sort (giving them directions to somewhere, asking them to come to a party, asking them to help you fold your laundry) we usually need very clear and precise instructions or plans.

These are all common parts of autistic communication styles but it’s important to remember not every autistic person is the same or will have all of these traits. We are as varied in personality, thoughts, and behaviors as allistic people, but we are tied together by shared experiences. Being aware of these traits and unlearning them as inherently bad communication styles is helpful to autistic people as a whole, but if there’s a specific autistic person in your life you want to better communicate with, the best thing you can do is ask them how you can do that and honestly discuss differences in communication and needs to best understand each other.

I want to see a world that’s… well, let’s start like Harry Potter, with the secret magical and separate muggle worlds, with muggleborns and halfbloods and purebloods, and kids who make a surprise discovery one day.  Only, I want to see a world where the most powerful magic users, consistently, are the muggleborns.

It’s not a guarantee, it’s not like every muggleborn is stronger than every pureblood, but there’s a definite pattern, and everyone knows it.  Because magic is power, but it’s also wonder; magic is the impossible made real and the awesome spread of all that could be.  And there is no moment in any life more magical than the moment a muggleborn child discovers magic is real.  They will go through their lives forever in the echo of that moment, that knowledge that magic can do absolutely anything and they can do magic.

The purebloods keep up, because they have milennia of history and tradition behind their spells and rituals, and belief is a kind of magic too.  Their magic is dependable, reliable, easy to predict, and that’s useful.

But the big magic, the magic that rips the world apart and puts it back together, the magic that warps time and makes legends, that is the realm of the muggleborns.

Because purebloods view magic like clouds; sometimes they’re pretty, sometimes they’re powerful, sometimes they’re just “ugh I hope it doesn’t rain today, I planned a picnic.”

Muggleborns look at magic and they see wonder, potential, power; they see magic.

Tips For Those Who Are Considering Witchcraft

Deciding to practice witchcraft and magick can be equally daunting and exciting.  Here are some tips about what to do if you are thinking about becoming a witch!

—————————————————————-

First, a few things that you should NOT do:

1.    Do not do anything that makes you feel uncomfortable, period.  Trust your intuition, and always stay true to yourself.

2.    Do not do anything that puts you in danger.  This includes casting a spell without protection, or opening yourself to spirits before you know what you are doing.  This also includes running out in the middle of a storm to collect rain water, or agreeing to meet a witch that you met online, alone.  Use common sense in all matters of your craft; your safety and health, both physical and mental, must come first.

3.    Do not do anything that contradicts your own personal, spiritual, moral, ethical, or other beliefs.  Unless you plan on changing what you believe, just don’t do it.  It doesn’t matter if everybody and their familiar is doing something; if it doesn’t agree with you, walk away from it.

4.    Do not start actually practicing anything witchcraft-related until you have researched it.  Do not do a spell until you have a working understanding of magick, as well as all of the ingredients involved in the spell – even ones you intend to substitute (especially the ingredients that you intent to substitute, actually).

5.    Don’t take witchcraft lightly. Your craft doesn’t need to be all serious spells and spiderwebs, but you do need to have a healthy respect for the energies and powers that you will be working with.  You shouldn’t fear them - never work with anything that makes you afraid - but you should respect them.

6.    Don’t take your studies lightly. Put yourself through witch school. Research everything; ask yourself questions and give yourself homework.  Ask others questions and ask them to give you homework!  Be creative in your studies, but still take them seriously.  You don’t have to be hunched over spellbooks all day, but you should make an effort to at least mentally review your existing knowledge, on days that you can’t find the time for more.  

7.    Do not be afraid to ask questions or for help – but do not automatically assume that everybody actually knows the answer.  Most witches around here will do their best to answer your questions, but they’ll also usually straight tell you if they don’t know something themselves; you should respect that, whether or not they point you in the direction of somebody else.  On the other hand, if something sounds wrong, trust yourself and double check.  Get a second opinion, if need be.  

—————————————————————-

Next, a few things that you should know before you enter the world of witchcraft:

1.    Witchcraft is real, and magick is real.  Whether or not you believe in it, it believes in you (as the saying goes).  Approaching magick as if you were cosplaying Harry Potter is an attractive but ultimately unwise idea.  Approaching magick as if you were learning to operate a highly beneficial but potentially dangerous piece of machinery – now, that is a wise idea.

2.    Witchcraft isn’t inherently evil, but neither is it inherently pure good.  Witchcraft is power, plain and simple.  It is what one chooses to do with that power that gives it such meaning, and even then, the concept of good and evil is an ethical and spiritual one, and thereby tends to vary from person to person, and from witch to witch.  You have to use your own morals to guide you.  The only type of magick that should be in your witchcraft is the magick you intentionally choose to put there.  On a related note: I personally don’t agree with classifying magick as ‘black magick’ or ‘white magick’, period – not because magick can’t have precise descriptors, but because there’s no need to use terms that have such negative racial undertones.  Light can be harmful and ‘evil’, while darkness can be protective and ‘good’. Your intentions aren’t “to do dark” or “to do light”, anyway.  Your intentions are “to do harm” or “to do healing”; your intentions are “to take away” or “to give”.

3.    Witchcraft is a personal practice. You do not need to follow any one specific path, spiritual or otherwise, in order to practice witchcraft.  There are many different types of witches, and many different types of magick.  If there is not one specific path that you feel is absolutely perfect for you, don’t choose one that feels ‘close enough’ – walk your own path and mold your witchcraft into something that is uniquely yours.  

4.    Witches worship in varying ways.  Some do not worship at all, and are purely secular witches.  Some are simply spiritual and do not follow one set path. Some are polytheists and worship many gods; some are monotheists and worship one.  Some are atheists and worship none!   Some are Wiccan.  Some are Christian.  Some are Satanists.  Some worship ancestors.  Some worship the stars.  Witchcraft is a personal practice, and should co-exist with all other aspects of your life.

5.    You don’t need a whole lot to get started.  Twigs can be used as wands; rock quartz can be used as a crystal.  Tea mixes contain herbs, and your spice cabinet is basically a magick cabinet.  Most of what is in your house can be used for magick, for that matter.  While it is definitely helpful to have the proper tools and ingredients when performing magick, it is possible to DIY your way through witchcraft until you can afford otherwise.  Also, it is probably smarter to wait a second before you run out and purchase anything, anyway.  As you learn more, you’ll start to see which tools you really need, which ingredients you’ll likely be using the most, which items really call out to you.  If you run out and buy everything that you see right away, you risk wasting money on things that just don’t work for you, or that you don’t even need.

—————————————————————-

Lastly, here are the things that you DO need to do, no matter what:

o    Be true to yourself.  Do not compromise yourself or your beliefs.

o    Be safe.  Don’t do or use anything that you do not have a working knowledge of.

o    Be educated.  Never stop seeking out new knowledge; try to learn something new daily.

o    Use common sense.  Don’t get caught up in things; think before you take action.

o    Trust your intuition and instinct.  We often know more than we consciously realize.

o    Be creative.  Write the spell that you’ve been looking for.  See what is laying around the house that you can use for your witchcraft.  Be inventive!

o    Have patience.  Learning takes time; magick takes time; developing your craft takes time.

That’s it for the moment!  Tune in tomorrow for a post regarding more tips and information on what to do when you do decide to go ahead enter the world of witchcraft ^_^

And so much more! Please, guys, we need more variations! We can’t get stuck in an ocean of stale, overused urban fantasy stories! We need to improve upon the genre!

If you have any more ideas, please add on! :)

honestly i have no problem with ‘queerplatonic’ relationships as a way to define a unique type of friendship In Theory (if they changed the name to something without the q slur bc theres nothing ‘queer’ about it) but like…

no offense but literally all this is when it comes down to it is just a close friendship that bends a couple social norms and blurs the lines into roles generally considered to be involved in a committed couple relationship. theres really no absolute line that separates ‘friend’ and ‘lover’ that can be applied to all relationships. most of us have that line in our personal lives, but what constitutes that ‘line’ will vary from person to person. theres no universal distinction.

so basically its just Advanced Friendship or a way to label an unconventional committed relationship. but unfortunately since years of MOGAI politics have overlabelled everything and pretty much set back tumblr’s collective critical thinking ability by decades, its treated like something unique that could be identified cleanly outside the lines of “friendship” or “relationship”.

so now youve got people acting like Advanced Best Friendship is “queer” and going as far as to say its “radical and progressive”, and inventing a nonexistent normativity (’amatonormativity’) that it supposedly challenges when, in the real world, it barely matters at all and doesnt really exist. its honestly a mess

Dancing. [Prince Adam Oneshot.]

We are all sinners and are gonna go to hell but you know as long as we have fanfics there I’m okay.

Title: Dancing.
Pairing: Implied! - Prince Adam x Female!Reader.
Words: 3,361.
Rating: T.
Summary: Haven’t you ever wondered what would happen if you called out a Prince who constantly acted like the world revolved around him?


You had quite a difficult time processing how you had gotten to the moment of standing only a few feet behind Prince Adam, with a silver trimmed and tall stout glass of champagne sitting in your right hand. The ring on your middle finger clicked against the glass shivering out a rather satisfying sound, one of wealth that demanded the most absurd amount of respect. Strangely enough, he hadn’t found any interest in you until this evening despite being invited (more like severely persuaded you come) to many of his parties. They were all the same. The same type of physically appealing people, the same stuffed up atmosphere, the same petty chat from person to person, the same typical dances, and the same type of carefully picked attire.

The Prince, with his naturally strawberry blond hair covered by a long haired wig that twisted into rather exquisite curls near the end, only seemed enthused by the aesthetic of the situation. He himself seemed to be the only thing that changed from event to event. The shades and colors of his face would change, varying in vibrancy depending on the clothing he donned that evening.

This evening—you thought to yourself and scaled your eyes upon the Prince, a few feet in front of you. And yes, this evening he was wearing velvet as usual; A dark purple, or so it appeared in the light of the room. It sparkled if he he caught the candlelight just right and for a split second, Prince Adam looked approachable, as if you wanted to sink into his arms because he closely resembled the shine of the stars. The embroidery on his waistcoat was nothing less than perfection and played along with the fabric as if they were swirled in a dance together. Purple and silver detailing hung closely to the trim of his coat and expanded into flourishes of metallic silver flowers spilling onto the breast of the jacket. Speckles of jewels hit sporadically around the jacket, and down the right and left side clung silver buttons that served no purpose other than appeal. And oddly enough, his jacket looked like the softest material imaginable if you dared to reach out for him.

life has gone to shit in the past few weeks and so i decided to start waking up early and taking charge of my life. it’s going ok so far. i am a night owl, though, soooo listen to me my tips work y’all

getting ur sleep hours

  • okok so iK that this is not always possible n u stay up late doing crap for school or smthing BUT
  • waking up early becomes so much better and easier and calmer when u get ur hours ok
  • find out how many hours u need (varies from person to person; me it’s 8 hours which kills me bc so much frigggging time)
  • depending on what time u want to wake up at, calculate it backwards and this new hour is ur hour that u absolutely cannot stay up past*
  • (* unless u absolutely absolutely have to. i understand that sometimes u just have too much stuff to do and u gta get it done. so in that case u would have to go to sleep as early as u can - meaning after ur deadline has passed, u focus focus focus n don’t do shenanigans.)
  • the idea here is u want a routine ok bc ur body likes routines ur brain likes routines and eventually it’ll wake up naturally at the time

ur alarm

  • this can either go both ways, whatever works 4 u:
    • make it RLLY RLLY shrilly n hella annoying that u hate it and u go and turn it off
      • warning: this can backfire bc u just turn it off and don’t actually wake up
    • or u make it like soft and happy and pretty
      • warning: similarly this can backfire bc u r still sleepy bc soft and happy and pretty
  • either way!!!!!!! DO NOT HIT THE SNOOZE
  • u made the promise to urself to wake up early, honour it. don’t be a shitty person who can’t keep their word. (look @ me guilting u)
  • some ppl like their alarms far but i don’t have enough self control for that lol like my alarm is my phone n getting out of bed b4 sleep to put my phone across the room eh

ur awake. now what?

  • ur probably still sleepy af bc ur a sleep-deprived person who would ideally be sleeping but u persevere my friend
  • ok first thing u do is get out of bed bc the bed is ur enemy and it distracts u ok it sucks!!!!!!!!!
  • couple things to stay awake:
    • in the winter especially i blast light in my face 2 tell my brain “yooo it’s like the day now can u wake the hell up” and then serotonin comes in and it’s like “yooo ty
    • wash my face w/cooold (diduthinkiwasgnasaycool) water bc that wakes u up !!! if u’ve ever been woken up w/water!!! yes it works !!!
    • some ppl r like exercise but be warned: this only works if ur body is somewhat used 2 exercise like mine is not and so exercising in the morning just makes me tired tbh
    • stimulate ur mind ya ok some ppl r against electronics in the morning but idk watching a funny vid or smthing cheers me up a lot (laughing!!! important)

rewards

  • bc we r humans driven by desires
    i make like a nice breakfast that i like w/like fruits and like good things and it makes me feeling nice n it’s usually rlly tasty
    • things i like to eat: berry smoothies, burrito wraps, congee, dates lol i’m obsessed w/dates rn

  • i rlly want a burrito rn
  • ur a superstar u can do it also wtf is sleep who needs that???
  • <3
Questions for Tarot Reading

Sometimes it is very difficult to come up with questions for tarot readings on the spot, whether you are giving the reading to yourself or if you are getting it done by another. Here is a small guide to hopefully help you with better wording your questions.

What shouldn’t you ask?

A good place to start is with what you probably should avoid. This does change reader to reader so this is not always true, but some typical things are:

  • Avoid Yes/No questions, these may be fine for pendulum readings but they are very difficult for tarot reading which gives you more details than a simple yes or no. Limiting yourself to yes/no questions can make the reading more difficult to interpret and even in my case when I get yes/no questions I am sometimes left baffled at what the card could mean.
  • Avoid questions that dig into another’s life. This could vary between readers, though such questions can be rather rude such as asking how two other people’s relationship is going or asking about a person’s secret life like “what is K keeping from me?”. these are generally avoided because well, they are rude and can make readers uncomfortable. Instead try to reword these questions such as “How could I improve my relationship with K, i feel like we are distant?” It is much more proper and involves you showing more appropriate interest in this person’s life
  •  Try not to ask outrageous questions. This should be a bit obvious but asking a tarot reader “how will the world end” or “when will WW3 happen” etc may seem funny but again, it is a bit rude. It is very mocking to us, try to ask questions we can actual try to answer. 
  • Don’t ask about your own death or when/how you will die. Though this is not agreed on by every reader, I know myself and many are uncomfortable with this question and will not answer for numerous reasons, including that we don’t want to scare or panic someone.
  • Health and Medical Advice. many tarot readers are not comfortable answering questions about your health or the health of others. We are not doctors or medical professionals, go and ask these questions to someone with knowledge in the subject, not us
  • Mental Health/Illness questions. Many tarot readers will not answer these questions because again, we are not professionals. Please seek professional help about your mental illnesses.
  • Always ask the tarot reader what questions they are not comfortable answering. This varies so much between person to person, so if they are doing free readings or event readers, check their FAQ if they have one or ask them what questions they are uncomfortable in asking. They will appreciate your courtesy and it can also ensure you don’t end up asking things that they won’t want to answer.

How can I come up with good Questions to ask?

This is a bit more difficult than what you can’t ask for it, again varies person to person. But as a general list of suggestions, here are some common questions that many don’t mind answering and can be nice for you too:

  • How will my week/month/year go? Simple but good for a general overall reading
  • How can I improve my relationship with _____? Not too nosy into the other person’s life and also gives you some information you can work with
  • How will my schoolwork/career go this month/term? 
  • I feel distant from _____ how can we best approach this problem?
  • What should I focus on this month?
  • What is holding me back? What can I do to improve myself?
  • What energies are around me today/this week/month?
  • What should I be more aware of in my life?
  • What is something i have been blind to recently?
  • I want to improve my ____, how can I approach this?
  • What are some good things coming my way?
  • What are some bad things coming my way?

There are many other questions you can ask but these ones above are some good general ones to start with.

When asking questions, try to make them about you rather than others. This is because you are the one getting the reading, not the other person. Plus, again some tarot readers may have personal preferences not to answer questions relating to another person’s life without their permission.

Remember not all tarot readers will do the same things! Always ask, if they don’t mention it in their FAQ if they are comfortable answering the following:

  • Love/Romantic Readings: I know other tarot readers who will not answer questions related to whether your crush likes you or how another person’s relationship is going. It makes some people uncomfortable due to lack of consent in some forms of these.
  • Communicating with Spirits or the Dead: not all tarot readers work with spirits so they may not wish to try to communicate with them
  • Questions about the Deceased or Death: again, some people are really uncomfortable with these types of questions
  • Deities: not all tarot readers are willing to communicate with your deity for you or see how your deity feels, especially when they are not connected to that deity or have a very different religious standing. Please respect that
  • Past Life Readings: not all tarot readers believe in past lives so not all will be willing to do a past life reading
  • Spreads: Not all tarot readers if they are offering you free readings will be using spreads. Spreads take time and a lot more energy 
  • Entity Communication: these would include communication with fae, merfolk, dragons, angels, demons, guides/guardians, and many other things. Not all tarot readers are willing to interact with these entities for you, especially if they are inexperienced with them or uncomfortable.
  • Revenge Readings: these would include questions related to how you can get someone back for something they did, if they will get punished for it, etc. Again, many readers may not be comfortable with these types of readings due to how aggressive and the wish of harm to come onto another can put people off.

Please always remember that tarot readers will be doing the absolute best to give you a clear, accurate reading. But, take readings with a grain of salt, things change all the time, so the reading may not always be 100% accurate. Don’t attack the reader for this, for they are trying their hardest to give you a good reading. Things aren’t always accurate, though we all try to be as accurate as possible to give you good advice. Sometimes the reading may seem like one thing will happen but something else happens, we readers make mistakes too. We are human. And the future is ever changing. Just remember that a reading you are given is never carved in stone.

I hope this has been helpful to you all and has aided you in understanding what questions to ask when getting a reading done. Have a wonderful day all of you!

Gemini Sun- Flexible base personality, has a vibe of duality, is observant, a quick learner, and is typically communicative. Their duality is based in the ego. They might change trends frequently, friends, or even personality traits.

Gemini Moon- Highly ruled by intellect, curious about but detached from emotions, huge desire to connect, and wants to be supported and understood. Duality is in emotions, they change opinions and decisions often. Their mind can feel split and they might have a slight indecisive side.

Gemini Rising- Adaptable and varied mask.

Please repeat after me:

There is no right way to have trauma

Your trauma is valid even when it presents in less common or embarrassing ways

You don’t need to be the perfect trauma patient to still be affected by trauma

You can have steps forward and steps back while dealing with trauma

Trauma and its experiences vary greatly from person to person and not everyone reacts to the same trauma in the same way

Your trauma and your feelings matter

Trauma does not make you crazy or less of a person

Asteroids in retrograde, just as with planets, symbolize Karma that needs to be worked on for a person in this lifetime.  The nature of Retrograde shows the internalization of the traits of the Asteroids.  This can be done so the person learns to deal with the nature of the asteroid that they struggled with a prior incarnation.

Retrograde asteroids can have an impact on the a person the same way Retrograde planets have.   This can result in varied effects on the expression of the asteroids nature for a person.  Sometimes i can help the person be more aware of the asteroids presence and effects, sometimes it can hinder them. The deepest impact felt by asteroids in retrograde come from the asteroids of Chiron, Juno, Vesta, Ceres, and Pallas.



As with all retrograde occurrences the Chiron’s nature is more internalized into the consciousness.   In this life the wounding occurring from Chiron is attaching deeper into the conscious level making the wounding more apparent. Chiron in Retrograde can create a scenario where a wounding during the life is so deep the person is always conscious is always aware of it.  The individual most likely will have troubles moving forward from the pain they received causing psychological troubles..  

The house Chiron is in tells where the wound most likely occurred along with the traits affected in the person’s life.  This house may have trouble expressing itself due to the severe wounding received attached to the consciousness.  In a sense Chiron in retrograde acts like a second Saturn in the chart limiting the person potentially in the house it sits in.  However where Saturn offers lessons and the lifting of Karma, Chiron’s effects can be constant.

Chiron in Retrograde can be a karmic lesson that teaches the person about pain not dealt with in a past life.  Another possible scenario from this retrograde is the person is dealing with acknowledgment of wounding and pain they inflicted upon others.  For the person to move forward in life this position forces them to get of of their comfort zone and seek the aid of others to cope and move forward.  Once the native learns how to do deal with Chiron’s wounding, he is stronger and more able to repay karmic debts and help others in the way the wounded healer likes.

If the person chooses to drown in their pain instead of moving forward it may always be difficult for them.  This can set the tone possibly to relive this same karma in another incarnation.  The person must take responsibility for finding how to cope with the deepest wounds the feel.  Whether it’s through soul searching or by  opening themselves up to help from others.  Whichever way the person must face their deepest wounds of their own accord.



With retrograde Juno in an individual’s birth chart a person can internalize and think more about marriage and partnerships in general.  Juno in retrograde may make the individual possess a Libra-like attachment to relationships in their life. This comes from their constant internal contemplation of relationships in their life.  An individual here with this retrograde can think a lot about the fairness, equality, sacrifice, and overall commitment a union.

A system of checks and balances internally can be in play over how relationships are valued.  With Juno retrograde the person can possibly have struggles committing to a union due to thinking about their complexities.  This can make them come across as shy and potentially have issues approaching suitable partners.  Conversely the person can consider the benefits of forming a marriage of business partnerships.  Relationships may be so important to them they are more aggressive in pursuing them after seeing their benefits.

In some cases the individual may internalize the things they like or dislike so much they have struggle achieving balance in a relationship.  Internalizing issues they face in their partnerships can have a tendency to cause resentment.  Partnerships in general may carry an unhealthy nature and lack of balance to them.  Power struggles can be a possibility due to potential communicating issues with Juno in Retrograde.  In a marriage union peak intimacy moments may be hard to come by with the struggles of expressing internalized thoughts.  

A Juno retrograde person may find themselves attracted to passive aggressive partners whom don’t want to deal with conflict.  This can serve as a basis to agitate partnerships that face troubles.  The structure of the relationship in this case can be prone to long term failures.  This can be attributed to the fact that neither partner wants to come out and deal with the reality of issues surrounding the partnership.

The Juno in retrograde person can be very sensitive to the overall condition of a partnership.  Partnerships in trouble can make them think about the imbalances more.  Despite the imbalance the internalized nature of thinking about partnership may also lead to good things.  They can identify the problems in a union that need to be solved.  This person can be more consciously aware of what needs adjustment.  

A person with Juno retrograde just might have a karmic position here of having to step outside themselves to re-balance the union by taking the initiative. Karma through the retrograde Juno can be tied to a past life when the person didn’t consider the value of relationships.  Perhaps they were too eager to get into relationships and were in them just out of fear of loneliness or societal pressure.  Another possibility can be in a past life they avoided relationships altogether and were reclusive.  Whichever avenue occurred the person with Retrograde Juno now is forced to consider internally over relationships due to the nature of a retrograde.



When Vesta is retrograde in a natal birth horoscope the person can be seen as born from another lifetime when devotion and dedication was underdone and left bare.  It can also indicate an opposing scenario where there was obsession with dedication and service which caused issues.  Whichever occurrence happened the individual’s soul felt an imbalance between their service and dedication, and the rest of their life.

With Vesta in retrograde the energy from the areas of desire for dedication and devotion are merged with the internal consciousness.  These areas of life are contemplated often since they are a part of the consciousness and the person is forced to acknowledge it.  This can force a person to make up for their mistakes of imbalance in a precious incarnation.  The key is patience with Vesta in Retrograde.  Avoiding obsession or neglect so they person can live a more balanced life.

With this retrograding of Vesta in the birth chart it can be seen as a soul lesson from the universe.  The universe is teaching the value of service but at a steady rate.  If too much or too little dedication is employed the person’s quality of life can suffer.   If too much dedication is employed the same effect can be felt as the overall well-being can be compromised.  

The basic nature of Vesta is to take a break from obsessions at times. With the internalization and increased awareness of how the person dedicates they can see the need to make adjustments in this area.  They can understand on a conscious level that too much devotion can hurt the balance of their partnerships, working on their own growth, and take away from the family life. In the same token they may see that not enough devotion and dedication can leave a person feeling void and empty without any direction.  Potentially this can lead to struggle with partnerships or supporting a family financially as example.



With Asteroid Ceres retrograde in a natal birth chart the person can have struggles with nurturing received.  The nurturing could have been void in their life or some cases were inconsistent.  The mother or nurturing parent specially could have factored significantly into this issue; though it can be any form of nurturing and love that should of been received.  The nature of Retrograde Karma shows the energy the Ceres asteroid represents becomes internalized and part of the conscious awareness.  

Internally the person may sense a part of the human experience is missing for them.   The internalization of ceres’ energy may lead an individual to struggle to express nurturing.  It could be that they do not understand how to nurture or they feel insecure about it since it is distant to them.  This can be because it was not stressed as appropriate behavior in their upbringing.  With this the person may possibly have issues with seeking relationships or allowing someone to assist or in some cases even love them.

This can all stem from past life karma where the person may of been dependent upon others to bolster them with nurturing.  They may of sought nurturing and love from others instead of learning how to take care of themselves.  Now with retrograde Ceres there is an internal need to learn how to nurture themselves and not rely on others.  By taking care of their own needs they can fill a void missing inside of themselves.  In the process they can learn the value of nurturing so they can learn how to nature others better as well.  The sign and house position of Ceres can give indications of the area nurturing was problematic for them.



With Pallas retrograde in a natal birth horoscope we see where a person becomes more consciously aware of the traits of Pallas internally.  In this case the person thinks and considers their creative intelligence, overall wisdom and ability to stand up for one self-more.  This is due to the true nature of retrograde celestial bodies which shows the internalization of the traits of the retrograde body.  Retrograde Karma is working to make the person more aware of Pallas traits so they can help develop them better.

In a past life the person may have struggled with rushing in before thinking things over.  There could’ve been issues with desire of protecting what they thought was valuable.  Struggles could have existed with developing a sense of wisdom through experience.  Standing up for what they thought was fair and showing confidence in their beliefs may have been an issue for them.  Being fair to themselves and others may have been a recurring problem potentially they dealt with.

Coming into this life Pallas in retrograde can serve the purpose of burning the traits of Pallas into the conscious thinking to correct these issues.  This can help by making the creative intelligence always active and in motion internally. The value of taking action becomes a part of their regular thinking.  They can become a better strategist and consider their moves more.  This can help a person develop patience and consider their moves more in life.

The conscious side of a person can also consider more the value of applying what they learn.  Developing more wisdom and understand internally the value of what they learned is a karmic lesson here.  The Pallas retrograde can help the person think about what they find value in.  This can be from karma moving the person to develop and understanding of the importance of their beliefs. Now an understand internally may develop of what is worth fighting for.

Third Eye Sigil

So, I have the psychic abilities of a very dull rock. I sometimes read about all of these talented people astral traveling, lucid dreaming, dream-walking, spirit-talking…and I’m just sitting there like “MY FACE IS TINGLING IS THAT A GHOST OR A MIGRAINE INCOMING?” It’s always a migraine.

Honestly, nothing is going to work as well as meditation for developing your psychic abilities. But, might as well use everything in your arsenal to help out, right?


                                         “ MY THIRD EYE IS OPEN.”


In order to charge this sigil. I decided to do something a bit more intricate than the usual burning routine.

NOTE: The following steps are completely optional.

Materials: 

  • Pen
  • Paper
  • 1-2 Lemon slices
  • Bay Leaf 
  • Rosemary
  • Salt
  • Rain Water
  • Anise Seed
  • Mint
  • Cleansed container

Procedure:

  1. Draw the sigil on a small piece of paper. Focus on your intent. 
  2. Pour  the rainwater into your cleansed container
  3. Add some salt
  4. Place the sigil in the rain water, still focusing on your intent. 
  5. Add lemon slices and other herbs
  6. DO NOT DRINK THIS GUYS. DO. NOT. DRINK. IT.

Sleep with the container nearby. The water and acidity of the lemon should  eventually destroy the sigil. Paired with the herbs, it should be nicely charged. 

Results may vary from person to person. Good luck!

Dragon Personalities (Not All Chromatic Dragons Are Evil...)

By vampirestookourscience:

All dragons in Dungeons & Dragons are depicted as intelligent beings, and most of them exceedingly so…

Dragon personality varies from dragon to dragon, but dragons of the same subrace tend to have similar mindsets.

This is not always true; several exceptions exist in official D&D material. In the Forgotten Realms a good-aligned red dragon is involved against his will in the Fall of the elf city of Myth Drannor.

Dragon subraces encompass all D&D alignments, going from lawful good paladin-like gold dragons to the cruel and very greedy chaotic evil red dragons.

All dragons share a common desire to collect treasure, be it precious, beautiful, magical or just shiny - indeed, the treasure in question needn’t always be gold, and may sometimes be aesthetic in nature, ranging from popular artwork or sculptures or even rare books and tomes that might otherwise have an overwhelming monetary value.

For evil-aligned dragons, this generally directs a greedy attitude to achieve such wealth by whatever means suit them.

For good dragons this lust for treasure is tempered, although they are certainly not averse to earning such wealth, and still appreciate gifts (while being insulted if offered an obvious bribe).

Being stronger, faster, generally smarter, and possessing longer life than humans and most other races, dragons tend to consider themselves superior creatures.

For good-aligned dragons, this may only mean they often consider humanoid races as children, trying to take care of them and educate them; for evil-aligned dragons, they consider humanoids as mere animals, or as toys to play with; at best, they are minions and slaves.

The longevity of dragons is evident in their often lackadaisical attitudes.

Good-aligned dragons, while concerned with defeating evil, are able to see a much broader scope of the world, and although certain crises arise that may seem extremely important to good-aligned humans, their dragon counterparts are able to see the event as an unimportant hiccup that will pass in mere centuries; even those that adventure with others tend show a sense of incredible patience, even in situations where all others feel they’ve not a second to lose.

Similarly, evil-aligned dragons that are crossed by belligerent adventurers may plot for dozens of generations before exacting revenge on the trespasser’s line - it is not uncommon for those descended from the mentioned adventurer to find themselves the target of a dragon based simply on their lineage.

Deeper Than Ink | 01

P R E M I S E ⇒

Should you fall in love with someone, even in the slightest, your skin becomes marked with vibrant colors that depict the story of your emotions. A tattoo, per say. However, should they or you fall out of love, the bright hues dull to black and the feelings you once had for each other melt away. To many, it’s a blessing to not have to live with the pain of your past. But what’s the point when you have too many reminders–say 27?

Pebbles bounced against the sidewalk, caught between the concrete and the rubber soles of boots dragging across the pavement. The movement was slow and the sound was reminiscent of a modern romantic defeat, another tally to add to the chalkboard. Another inked reminder that would be incomplete on a pale skin canvas.

A single finger rose to itch at the back of a studded ear, scratching just above the intricate black swirls of patterned water that was splayed over a neck. The owner of this design–and the 27 others cluttering his skin–wasn’t a lost cause or a serial romantic as many had come to believe. But potentially the most unlucky man in the world.

There were many others like him, decorated in dozens of these brandishes to signify their accomplishments in a manner akin to a trophy shelf. Their skin was littered with these marks of past lovers who were only intended to become blackened symbols. However, hoarding tattoos of ones he adored was not a game to him like it was to others; he feared the attention and judgment that his ink gave him.

He was enamored by people and their stories, the things they had to say and the words that they would whisper to him. Falling for them was simply a side effect of his own curiosity that he had no control over, as the patterns would only appear when the emotions were mutual. People were drawn to him, not for the art etched into him, but for his elegant thoughts and charming words.
