magic 8 balls

anonymous asked:

What are the kinds of divination?

Divination means fortune telling, or telling the future through a device. So that could be crystal balls, reading tea leaves, tarot cards, oracle cards, and so on, all the way to Magic 8 Balls, cootie catchers, MASH, or guessing when the traffic light is going to turn green.

SEVENTEEN THEORIES (UPDATED! - S. Coups)

Okay, so my twin and I have come up with theories to Seventeen’s comeback.

We all understand that the concept revolves around the idea of fears and being alone. We see in all the videos an introduction to this fear and by the end of the trailer, they acknowledge these fear. 

So we think…

Vernon: His fear could be wandering aimlessly, unsure of his path. He just walks around, letting time pass by him. He acknowledges this fear by continuing to use that compass until he finds someone familiar to him.

Jeonghan: His fear could be his image or his image in front of the camera/media. It could be that he takes photos because he has an image in his mind of how things look to him, but the outside world may not view his perspective the same. Through media, that can be altered and it can shine a different light on an artist. By facing his fear, he leaves the comfort of the home. By doing this, he accepts how the world is going to view him.

Mingyu: His fear could be related to having this incomplete half to himself. We see him alone, but everything is in two like he once had someone who shared the same similarities and now he feels responsible for filling this void. We could take it another way. We also see a disconnect, especially in the scenes with a mirror. It may portray a disconnect between what he feels inside and what he sees on the outside. I can see this in Mingyu since he often feels uncomfortable with his body. Mingyu faces his fear by finally taking a step back and away from the mirror, almost saying that he will no longer let his physical features define him.

DK: His fear could be not improving. We see his running pace remain the same, and then he eventually drops the timer. DK would be the type of person to always strive to be better and to always work to improve, and not being able to accomplish that can haunt him. By dropping that timer, he allows himself to improve at his own pace without the stress of a physical and materialistic goal.

Woozi: His fear could be related to his talents, his brains. It looks as though he’s trapped in a library, like all this knowledge is kept inside, unable to be shown to the world or appreciated by the world. He may be afraid to share the world his talents.

Jun: He is surrounded by memories. His fear could be that this brotherhood he has with the others will eventually be lost and all he has left to fill this empty space are the memories. He’s afraid to get in touch when a long time has passed since we hear Jisoo’s voice from a voice mail. He faces this fear by finally going out and visit. 

Dino: We see him land on the space “turn to the first space.” This could signify his fear of starting from scratch when they have already put so much work into their team and their music. We see him continue to roll the die like he’s waiting for a new fate, but every time he ends up with the same number that landed him there. This correlates with the “seventeen project 2017” they are portraying, that they are starting over with a re-debut with this new and improved group.

Wonwoo: The fear shown in his teaser is boredom and disinterest. We see him at the beginning staring at a blank wall as he steps out in the hallway. He also see him looking out the window and often sitting and contemplating. He picks up the TV remote, but he just flips through the channels, unable to pick something that interests him. We hear cheering, like fans clapping and cheering but his facial expressions don’t change. He could be afraid of no longer finding interest in what he does, or he could be afraid of fans no longer be interested. But it looks to be resolved as the scene ends with him settling on a channel showing the very place where we found Vernon wandering to. 

Hoshi: Another hard one! He’s waiting for a phone call, but we don’t know what the other line of the phone is saying. The environment in the room changes to something cold when he answers the phone. But after he hangs up the first time, he calls the number on the piece of paper. His fear could be receiving and relaying bad news to others. We see him struggle when he opens the piece of paper with the phone number on it, but he continues to call anyways almost showing us the urgency and importance of the message he received. 

Seungkwan: Money. Money is anybody’s dream and nightmare. We see Seungkwan twirling a coin in his hand. This could signify fear of being greedy, or it could signify his fear of not being able to provide. Either one, we see him accept this has he leaves the coins on the counter of the laundromat. 

The8: Minghao’s fear could be being left. We see him arrive at this home with groceries. When he arrives, no one is home to greet him. We see a note on the kitchen counter where it is obvious for someone to see. When he reads it, we see devastation in his face. This could be that a significant other had left him. We don’t see much of a resolution of Minghao’s fear, but we see DK arrive in time to comfort him. We also see the spinning magic 8 ball, which is suppose to determine your luck, and Minghao happened to get the short end of the stick. 

Joshua: His was sooo hard omg. He could be afraid of betrayal. It could him betraying someone/the group, or it could be someone betraying him. We see in the water that one of the two people puts their hand on the other person’s shoulder and then walks away. He washes his face, almost showing discomfort and irritation and then we see him walking in the hallway only for him to turn back towards the camera. 

S. Coups: Coups fear may have to do with going in circles, or lacking direction in general. We see him walking and then he stops to turn around. He continues to walk around only with signs all around him saying “Wrong Way.” When he finally does decide to move forward, he keeps circling the block. This could signify his fear the team going forward, but keep going in circles, or not finding a path to improvement. 


They’re alone to show how each member has their own, unique fear. They all experience it differently. With members shown at the end of the clip, it suggests that no matter how often their fears come and no matter how small they may be, “even though you’re being alone, remember we are on your side and don’t be afraid of all the fears you have.”

We see a cycle through the thirteen boys and it finally ends with leader S. Coups. His lines at the end of his video are more special. 

“I was afraid and anxious since I was all alone.” This is representative of all of the boys’ fears because we see them all tackle these fears alone. 

“Nevertheless we met on thirteen paths and eventually.” This ties in why the all showed up in each others videos. It shows that though they came from different places, different worlds, different opportunities, all of their paths eventually crossed. 

“A complete bond has formed leading us to our brightest moment.” We see that S. Coups finally meets with Jeonghan, bringing all of the videos in full cycle. This shows that together, they will be their best. 

A List of Witchy Android Apps:

There will probably be overlap with other app posts. I’m not trying to say I’m the first to discover these apps or anything of that nature. I’ve included some brief descriptions of why/how regularly I personally use them/how they could be useful and how the app functions.

Amazon Kindle: I have some digital witchcrafty books.  If you have your own amazon account, it may be an especially good idea for the discreet witch. Digital versions of encyclopedias are also much easier to carry in-pocket this way.

Angel Cards: The free version only has 2 options, “Message of the Day” and a “Past, Present, Future” spread.  The app’s cards are splayed out (face down) for you to scroll through and choose from when you do a spread, and that’s why I use the app despite its lack of free features.

Angel Tarot: The free version of this app is much more substantial than the previous app mentioned.  It has a card of the day function as well as 5 spreads built into the app. This app’s divination function also has a user input into the randomization through tapping the touchscreen to shuffle the deck and then choosing the top card with a slide whenever you’re ready.  It also allowed you to save your spreads/results to review at a later through a “Journal” function.  It does not allow you to take notes on the spread, just archives the result itself.

Cards of Courage: This is a free app that doesn’t offer the entire deck until purchased.  There is a Daily Card function, and 1 card, 2 card, and 3 card spread functions. With this app, it chooses a card without any user input (no shuffling/scrolling through cards), but it has not negatively affected its accuracy in my personal experience.  This app also has four guided meditations I have not tried to use for it does not interest me.

Crystal Oracle: This is a free app that sort of functions as a magic 8 ball. It takes user input to begin ‘pulling’ an answer.  The answers vary from the typical yes/no/ask later.  I’ve had varied success with this app.

Galaxy Tarot: A free app with an upgrade option that adds a journal and additional card associations among several other things.  This app does not utilize user input for the daily card, but it allows the option for the 6 spreads available.

GardenAnswers: A free app I feel would be very useful for identifying local flora.  If a photo of a flower is input into the app, it attempts to match it from a database.  It also has a function to ask a horitculturist for advice identifying a plant or treating a plant issue.  I have not used this app much, so I can’t vouch for or against it.

Golden Thread Tarot: Cards are generated without user input.  The app has a physical deck that can be used in companion.  The app offers a journal function that allows the user to input how they feel about the result of the reading when they save it.  The app has a daily card function, and offers three spreads for various categories (ex. Love, career, general).

Horoscopes: A horoscope app I use mostly for entertainment.  The app has a sign compatibility function that only has m/f options.  It also has decent graphics of the constellations which could function as a nice reference.

Inkboard: A simple drawing app I use to create sigils.

Labyrinthos Academy: A fun app that teaches Tarot.  The user is allowed to pick between a girl, boy, and nonbinary option for their “player character.”  I’ve heard it is very useful for learning the Tarot card meanings, but I have yet to try it much.

MagicBall: An app that requires users to shake their phone to get an answer.  It seems about as accurate as the Crystal Oracle app.

Memo: Any note-taking app will do.  I’m pretty sure all phones come with one pre-installed. I’ve heard Evernote works well, too.  Basically anything that you can use to save your notes even when you’re on the bus or otherwise on the go.

myNoise:  This app is made by the same person who has the myNoise website! I 100% recommend this app (and the website which is fairly mobile-friendly) for anyone who needs background noise during spellwork, meditation, divination, or even sleep. Truly amazing stuff.

Phases of the Moon:  An app that tracks the moon phase and what sign it’s in.  It also has a (relatively unstable) function to set the moon phase as your lock screen/background that is useful for keeping a constant eye on the moon phase.

Planetary Times:  An app that tracks the astrological time.  It explains what planet’s time it is at the moment and also supplies some horoscope capabilities.  It also explains the correspondences and associations of the planets.

Spellcaster:  Offers a few basic tarot reading options that do not take user input for card choice (bar selecting a reading).  It also has a few spells from the creator’s grimoire, and a daily horoscope.  There are more features, but the ones I’ve listed are the free ones.  I honestly don’t find myself opening this app much.

Uni Tarot:  This app has several decks from which to choose, and the user “stirs” the cards with their touch screen before selecting a card or cards for the spread.  It has a large amount of information on the cards, and has a journal function.

Viridi:  A calming, meditative digital succulent gardening app (there is also a viridi for the computer) where you weed and water a potted arrangement of succulents.

White Noise Generator:  The one I have is an actual stream of white noise.  Could be useful for drowning out loud surroundings for meditation or ease in hearing spirits.

anonymous asked:

SEVENTEEN'S COMEBACK IS SO CLOSE! I was wondering if you had any theories? I read a YouTube comment that said the trailers could represent each member's fear... What do you think their fears are?

S.Coups: His fear is losing direction. Seungcheol is seen running around the city, but he just keeps going around in circles, as proven when he’s seen passing by the same 17 sign over and over. As the leader of Seventeen, the members are depending on him to lead the way. He fears leading them in the wrong direction—failure—rather than the one they’re all hoping for—success.

Jeonghan: His fear is forgetting. In the trailer, Jeonghan is seen taking pictures with his object, a camera. Pictures are usually linked to memories, and people take pictures to remember precious moments. He’s afraid of forgetting all these moments spent with the other members. He takes pictures so that he can always look back at them and remember.

Joshua: His fear is people walking away from him. In the water, two people’s silhouettes can be seen, but one walks away, leaving the other all alone. Jisoo splashes water on his face to try to “wash away” his worries, but his worries can’t disappear so easily, and he knows that.

Jun: His fear is keeping his feelings inside, unable to express them. Junhui is seen holding letters, but they’re all from the sender and it’s unknown if he answered any of them. He’s afraid of keeping things bottled up inside, or that he will never be able to give an answer to questions he should be able to answer.

Hoshi: His fear is being unable to reach those he loves. It could be being so busy that he can’t find time to contact his family, or even fearing that he’s unable to express his thankfulness to us Carats. In his trailer, we see him pick up the phone, only to find out that there’s no one on the other side. Then he calls the number on the piece of paper he has with him, waiting for someone to answer. We don’t know if he was able to reach them.

Wonwoo: His fear is being unable to finish what he started, fear that he’s going to be interrupted. Wonwoo is seen flipping through channels, but each show is interrupted by static. He’s afraid that something might go wrong and ruin what they’ve all worked so hard for. The static is usually interpreted as disconnection, so he fears that a misunderstanding might happen between them all, resulting in separation. In the end of his trailer, we see the screen all clear again, which could mean that things would have to be cleared up so that everything can work again.

Woozi: His fear is being unable to find the answer no matter how hard he tries. Jihoon is a hard worker who puts his all into his work. As Seventeen’s song writer/producer, the members are all counting on him to create songs that would appeal to the public and their fandom. He fears that one day, he won’t be able to get the results he’s hoping for.

DK: His fear is feeling like he will never be good enough. In the trailer, Seokmin is seen running, but every time he checks his stopwatch, his time remains the exact same. This could represent how he feels that no matter how much he practices, he will never feel satisfied with his results. He feels like that’s the best he can do, and he will never get better.

Mingyu: His fear is falling behind. While his trailer can be interpreted as him feeling like he’s missing something, I think it goes much deeper than that. In the trailer, Mingyu looks up to see two clocks; one is pointing at 2:00, while the other is at 2:01. This is a very subtle detail, but it could possibly mean that he’s afraid of falling behind. No matter how hard you try to synchronize clocks, one is always slightly ahead of the other. Mingyu fears that the other members will show improvement except for him. The mirror could represent him fearing that his visual is all he’ll ever be known for, and not as a rapper or hard-working member of the group.

The8: His fear is the unpredictable. A Magic 8-Ball rolls out of the bag of groceries, and while this object is mostly linked to fortune-telling, it can also represent unpredictability as the user never knows what answer they will get. Minghao is afraid of what the future holds because he’s unsure if it’s a good one or a bad one.

Seungkwan: His fear is being trapped in something that feels never-ending, and impatience will be his downfall. In the trailer, Seungkwan is seen waiting for his laundry, but as it takes too much time, he gives up on waiting and dumps what he owes on one of the machines. His wash cycle would eventually come to an end, but he won’t be there to see it. He fears giving up too easily because of the thought of wanting quick, positive results. He’s afraid of getting himself into something so difficult that he doesn’t want to continue it, not knowing just how close success is.

Vernon: His fear is not knowing where he’s going, not having a specific goal in mind. Hansol is seen walking around an open field, looking in every direction, hoping it would help him find a way out. He fears feeling lost and completely hopeless, unable to find his way and decide which path to take on his own.

Dino: His fear is being unable to advance. In the trailer, Chan rolls his dice over and over, but no matter what, the sum is always the same. This number leads him right back to square one. He’s afraid of not being able to change his course, and that he’ll forever remain in the same place.

thank you for your request!!
