Before I begin my list, I want everyone to know it is possible to practice and fine tune all of these abilities. Every person has the ability to open their third eye, aka decalcify the pineal gland, which then can help open up your 6th sense as long as you practice at it.
Aries - Clairvoyant: This type of psychic ability is best suited to Aries, who has to see it to believe it. Feeling things and communication isn’t normally your forte, but when you can physically see something, it is much easier for you to work with. Auror reading falls under this category, almost anything that you can see falls under this category.
Taurus - Psychometrist:Reading information contained in the energy of objects would best be suited to Taurus, who rules over the physical plane and material objects. Not to mention your affinity for material possessions and pretty objects makes you more inclined to be able to sense and read information contained inside of objects. These are the type of psychics that are brought into the evidence room
Gemini - Psychographer:This is the practice where you translate non-physical consciousness through “psychic writing”. This is where you tune out and just write on an unconscious level while tapping into otherworldly energies and just write what ever comes to your hand. And since Gemini rules the house of writing, this would be the more natural ability for you to develop.
Cancer - Clairsensitive:This ability is all about feeling. It is sometimes confused with intuition, which is slightly different on a few levels. Cancers are deeply sensitive and connected to their feelings, so it is only natural that you have the ability to feel surrounding energies and thing on a non-physical conscious plane.
Leo - Precognition:This is the ability to read all the possibilities of the future, and Leos have such a great imagination and desire for a positive future, that you often find yourself imagining what your own future would be like. And this ability can be translated to other people if you learn to use your imagination to sense out what possibilities someone has in their future. Though future readings are never easy and always have different possibilities, because nothing is ever set in stone and human beings have the gift of free will.
Virgo - Psychic Surgeon:There is no one better for this type of job than the ruler of health and service. When you see someone in pain, it is your instinct and natural desire to do anything you need to do to help them. And as a psychic surgeon you can operate intraphysically on non-physical trauma.
Libra - Telepath:This is the ability to read information mind to mind, and as a Libra with wonderful social grace that comes from your ability to connect with people and form partnerships, this seems like the best option for you.
Scorpio - Lucid Dreamer:This is the ability to consciously know that you are dreaming and to access the dream world, Dream Controlis also another step into this world, and what better ability for Scorpio to master than the ability to control your dreams, since you get an odd satisfaction from having power and control.
Sagittarius - Astral Traveler:Sagittarius rules the house of Travel and exploration, and when it comes to astral projection no one is more fearless and eager than you are to leave your physical body and traverse all physical and nonphysical planes.
Capricorn - Retrocognition:The ability to look into past lives is a very sought after gift that many people seek readers out for to explain parts of their personality or fears that are unexplainable. And I think Capricorn would do well with this ability with an affinity for being sought after for advice and a connection to the past.
Aquarius - Psychophoner:This ability allows a nonphysical consciousness to speak through you, and I think this would go well with Aquarius who rules communication on a much larger scale than either Gemini or Libra. Aquarius rules over the tarot card “The Star” because she symbolizes the communication and transferring information from the heavens to the earth.
Pisces - Intuitive:This is an intimate and clear knowledge about a situation, and it is more based off of instinct and immediate reactions and feelings to something. It is the immediate and instinctive part that separates this from clairsensitive, and I think pisces works well with this ability because they are so sensitive and rule over the house of mystics and self undoing.
I’m completely in love with the new season of Samurai Jack. Drawing this guy feels so natural, for some reason. Damn, this show reminded me why I love animation and I just wish I could direct a series like that someday.
Can you tell me why we’re cursed with this feeling that feels so natural, and good? When we’re together, God seems to sit in the room with us. And when you’re away, I manage to forget you. And then…one touch of your hand and God comes rushing back.
lance comforting shiro during panic attacks and helping shiro feel at ease during the night, and eventually that leads to shiro slowly getting more sleep. unfortunately as the war progresses, lance can’t cope with his own fears and can’t seem to really find comfort in anything. shiro decides to help lance, and (after many awkward attempts) he discovers that lance gets to most restful sleep when he is sung a few songs.
shiro likes that he has been able to help lance, and likes that he can go to lance with concerns and his fears because he is able to just vent.
one night lance crawls into his bed after a nightmare, and that’s when they started cuddling each other. lance forces shiro to wear pjs, and some time after awhile shiro suggests that lance might as well move some of his night things into shiro’s room.
shiro likes seeing the variety of skin care and shower items that lance has collected and made. sometimes lance brings him breakfast goo in bed. lance encourages shiro to get souvenirs, and after a few months shiro’s shelves and walls have many small crystals and pictures. he even gets his own skin care things and sets them next to lance’s.
they are just a little married, to be honest, and shiro just likes how domestic they feel behind closed doors.
the team notices it, the way lance and shiro are closer, and the way the bags are slowly moving from under shiro’s eyes. the way shiro rubs lance’s back reassuringly when lance is too fidgety, and sometimes even catch the pair laughing at some inside jokes.
when they finally kiss, at a diplomatic ball, it feels so natural for them to be swaying on the dance floor like that, in each other’s arms. they don’t really have a label for themselves until, after several weeks, lance makes the two of them ‘boyfriend bracelets’. black and blue threaded together, it’s simple and durable and shiro is never seen without his bracelet on.
With all of the people around them, there might as well only be two. The fancy decorations and loud music are only a faint distraction; the chaperons standing on the edge, everyone else surrounding them on the dance floor. It’s all background noise for Mike.
“El.” He says it once he’s sure he can trust his voice again, when his head has (mostly) stopped spinning after he feels what it’s like to kiss her again, the way it feels like the first time every time.
She looks up, her eyes questioning for only a split second. Her lips are parted in an almost smile and Mike sends a prayer he won’t have to wait 353 days to kiss them ever again.
It starts as a joke. The auror department considered Newt Scamander one of the most adorable creatures that they’ve met. But after a few weeks of him being their consultant it became clear he was only for their boss.
At least that’s what it looks like. Because they’ve never seen Percival Graves act like he does when Newt is around. And before they notice they start to call him Graves’ darling. But it’s just a joke.
And, in their defense, that begins because Director Graves behavior changed after Scamander’s arrival.
He is less angry and grumpy when Newt’s around. He uses to carry the magizoologist in his arms when he falls asleep (and Newt falls asleep anywhere if he’s tired; cafeteria, garden or even over an auror’s shoulder). Graves takes him to his office and close the door, warning anyone near by what would happen to them if they dare to wake him up.
Director Graves also likes to take Newt out to eat or he brings him food himself, making sure the reddish hair wizard eats properly and he doesn’t miss any meal. Newt argues with him sometimes, assuring him he can take care of himself, but Graves prefers to ignore him.
And he has good reason to do it.
Because one day Newt scared the hell out of them.
It was almost New Year’s Eve, the magizoologist was talking with auror Goldstein about maticore’s venom. They all knew he wasn’t sleeping well because of the dark shadows below his eyes, but they had no idea he had forgotten to eat. They didn’t know he was that weak until Goldstein yelled his name, scared when Newt’s eyes closed. Fortunately, Graves was near them, speaking with Picquery, but he was keeping an eye on him (their boss was always looking at Newt) and appeared next to him just in time to catch him in his arms before he fell to the ground.
The healers told them he was going to be fine, he just needed food and sleep. They all were to see him when he finally woke up, just a quick visit to make him know they cared. They left eventually, when the healers insisted, but Director Graves… He didn’t leave Newt’s side and even growled at the few people who were brave enough to try to convince him otherwise.
They weren’t successful of course. He looked angry because ‘It seems, Mr Scamander, you don’t care about your own health. How could’ve you forgotten to eat?’ but they knew better to see all that attitude was just to hide the fact that he was deeply worried.
Another thing they start to notice is their boss seems awfully incapable of keeping his hands to himself when Newt’s around. There’s always a hand touching the wizard’s shoulder, fingers ‘fixing’ the magizoologist bowtie, hands cupping a face full of freckles, arms around a waist just to prevent the other one from 'falling’. 'Be careful, Newt, this path is particularly slippery,’ which is a total lie and they all know it, but their boss looks happy and Newt doesn’t seem to mind.
And don’t let them start about his boss jealousy, because boy he is jealous. He can’t help but to get involved in any conversation Newt is in, because he can’t stand the magizoologist paying too much attention to someone that’s not him. Nor he can’t help but glaring and snarling at anyone who looks at Scamander like they’re interested.
And that poor poor soul that tried to flirt with Newt that day. It was one of the British aurors that came to discuss of international security with Madam Picquery. He recognized Newt because he was Theseus’ colleague. He asked about Newt’s work and they all know the magizoologist gets very excited when someone asks about his creatures. And he smiles and giggles with the British auror and the man looks charmed (because why wouldn’t he be, Newt’s truly adorable).
“Theseus didn’t tell me you were so cute,” he comments and Newt blushes prettily.
And that was the last thing they heard him say because he died that day.
Okay no, he didn’t, but it was a close call.
“Newt, I think Miss Goldstein is looking for you,” Director Graves says and the magizoologist nods and walks away quickly. The British auror wants to follow, but is stopped by Graves.
They don’t know if was something their boss said or just the murderous look on his face, but the auror paled suddenly and he never tried to talk with Newt again.
The poor guy.
So their joke begins, they don’t even remember who came up with it, but they don’t care, because somehow it feels so natural to call Newt the boss’ darling that some days they even forget it’s a joke.
But then some messes up and does it while Graves is still in the room with them. They all get petrified, while watching their boss blinking in surprise.
“What did you say?”
Kenneth looks up in horror, realising his own mistake.
“I’m terribly sorry, Sir.” He mumbles.
“You called Newt my 'darling’?”
“I didn’t mean… It was a-”
But Director Graves doesn’t seem to care, he looks like he’s forgotten they’re more wizard in the room with him because he starts to smile to himself.
“It’s okay. No harm done,” he assures, shocking everyone. “Now… Where were we?”
So… The rumor spreads and they all start to think that maybe Newt is, in fact, Graves’ darling.
Until Queenie tells them the truth.
“No, they’re not dating,” she informs.
And honestly it makes them feel disappointed because now they’re sure that their boss is pining and Newt is completely oblivious to everything.
Well… there must be something they can do about it.
So they tell Newt and hope for the best.
The magizoologist face turns completely red and he looks like he doesn’t quite believes them. He’s about to argue when Percival Graves walks in the room.
“What’s going on here?” He frowns at them, but his irritation changes to worry when he looks at Newt. He approaches him and cups his face in his hands. “Are you okay?”
They’re not sure if is something in the way he looks at Newt or in his voice, but suddenly the magizoologist eyes’ wide with realization right then and there.
So he smiles at Graves, a beautiful soft smile, and leans in to kiss him. The kiss is quick, because Graves is still in shock to respond so Newt steps back, thinking he’s made a mistake.
Director Graves grins like he just finished all the paperwork for the next ten years and tooks Newt by the waist and kisses him with all he has.
But he stops after a moment, suddenly remembering his aurors are still in there. Newt must have remembered it too, because he hides his face in Graves’ neck.
“Will you be standing there all they? Are you planning on returning to WORK anytime soon?”
That’s their cue to leave and they do with pleasure because their mission is accomplished and honestly they both look so cute together.
So they leave Director Graves and his darling alone.
12th house people tend to absorb & reflect the personalities of who they’re surrounded by, partly because synastry’s activation of different parts of their chart doesn’t have a solid identity or internal core to be stabilized and filtered by. Interpersonal material is not properly processed, and there are no levels of experience – everything happens all at once, so it can be hard to sort out what is intrinsically possessed and what has been adopted, observed, & shared. 12th house people aren’t linear, they don’t compartmentalize, nothing is clear, so they can get into habitual patterns when they spend a lot of time with certain people, tending to put a lot of energy into the parts of the natal chart which those other people are present in. For example, I know someone with a 12th house stellium, and they’ve befriended a Capricorn whose sun falls into their 9th house and Mars into their 11th; the 12th house stellium individual tends to adopt the Capricorn’s cynical worldview and pessimistic humor, while typically (due to their Gemini Ascendant) they’re a jovial, optimistic person.
This is not to say that “adopted” or “absorbed” traits/interests don’t belong to us. Output shapes who we are just as much as intake does. This is also a big part of having a lot of 12th house energy; growth, change, and transformation will happen very frequently within you, but it feels so natural that you won’t see how different you are from the person you were a year ago, even a week ago. The paradox of the 12th house is constant adaption that (when unhealthy, which it usually is) inevitably leads to maladaptive complexes. There’s such a sensitivity to others & the rest of the world that the overwhelm can turn to insensitivity – being so tired of the psychological/personal stimulation that you can begin to drift, learning how to let your experiences evaporate into nothing, when they used to compose your everything. I find that a lot of 12th house people experience this as they get older.
