The furry scales on air plants are called trichomes. They help to reflect sunlight and collect moisture from the air. They close upon getting wet and re-open after a few hours. The Tillandsia tectorum species is prized for its highly pronounced trichomes.

1st House - your Ascendant, your worldwide persona

Aries Ascendant - outspoken and very sensitive. They are called warriors of the zodiac and for a good reason. They always fight to the end for the cause they believe in and will do everything what it takes to win (literally). They are really smart and inventive. They like to instigate things and cause drama. They never take your advices. Honest and stubborn. They tend to take things to their heart (except advices) and they easily get offended. They crave romance and true love but they are way more shy about those things than people think. They really can get shy in love! But they want to be always considered strong so it is hard to see that side of them. They have a tendency to delete people from their life too fast, without giving it a second thought. Strong minded. Helpful. Sassy. They easily get jealous of others.

Taurus Ascendant - protective and sexy. Their presence is not that intense like Scorpio but still they are visible and hard to miss. Very sensual people. Their sexiness is more subtle and their beauty is very earthy like. They go back and forth with being economical and  impulsive with spending money (they might buy things they think they need when they really don’t).

Scorpio Ascendant - passionate and watchful. The infamous “mysterious and intense” ones. They definetely bring a lot to the table.

They make a conscious effort to be funny (they prefer things be kept this way) but they can get serious very fast and when they do they become scary. They have short temper and sharp tongue. They will not tolerate any baloney. They will scream about it to the world if they have to. They will make a fuss about something but five seconds later they will act like nothing happened.

They like affection and compliments especially about achievements, less looks. They are constantly misunderstood and people try to simplify them to being heartless workaholics but they are way more complex. They tend to be more confident when they got older, they need some time to asset themselves in the world but when they do they become ultimate bosses.

Aquarius Ascendant - serious but charming. They are a unique blend of a social butterfly and strong individualist. They like people and spending time with them but they also need a lot of solitude. They often feel outcasted because of their contrasted personality and are considered weird. They are not weird - they are just unapologetic about who they are and you have to deal with it, whether you like what you see or not. Aquarius will not change anything about themselves to make things easier (even when they crave to be understood they will stand still with who they are)They are very curious and have many interests. They need some time to really open up but when they do you can see their passionate, vulnerable and caring side. They really like and need affection. They are smart and blunt. They appreciate unconventional forms of romance. 

Pisces Ascendant - smart and incomparable. People see them as this weird, sad guys, who do not comprehend a normal human language. This is not true - they are complex and have many sides to them to show to the world. They easily get inspired by everything around them. They think they know how to blend in but the truth is that somehow they always stand out. They are intelligent, have unique sense of humour and way of looking at the world. They are brave, can get very argumentative when someone is talking about things they are passionate about. They can be both very logical and emotional, serious and goofy, loud and quiet. They are never one thing, they could never choose to be one.

Laurel’s Easy Sabbat Planning Guide

For all of the witches who struggle with Sabbats sneaking up on them, here is a guide to help whip up an easy celebration so you never have to miss out on Sabbats again!

A Sabbat is a seasonal festival mostly celebrated by Pagans and Witches. Sabbats are like any other holiday, except these are normally celebrations of the changing of the seasons, or the “turning of the wheel.” Each person will celebrate each Sabbat differently, as each season is completely personal to you.

⛤ The First Step

The first step I recommend to planning a Sabbat celebration is to figure out exactly what the Sabbat is to you. Figure out how you feel about the sabbat and what you naturally associate each one with. This can take some time to work through, especially if you are new to sabbats or if you tend to avoid nature at all costs.

⛤ What to ask yourself:

- What does this Sabbat mean to you?
- What is the Earth doing right now? What does it look like outside your window?
- What is in season (this includes foods, herbs, flowers and decor)?
- How do you feel this time of year? How does this particular Sabbat make you feel? Is this normal?
- What sort of things make you feel “witchy” or connected to this Sabbat?
- Why is this day special to you?

⛤ Things to Do:

- Perform a ritual. Rituals can be as elaborate or as simple as you want them to be. Sometimes all you have to work with is a tealight candle and a week old pack of cookies.

- Cook. Some of us feel connected to the world around us when there is food involved. After all, it’s not a party unless there is food. Try out a new recipe with in-season foods, or make your favorite comfort food dish.

- Go outside. The easiest way to celebrate the changing of the seasons is to go outside and experience them. Even if it’s a short walk (because not many people want to go for long strolls in the dead of winter), take a moment to step outside and experience nature and observe what it’s currently doing. If you are able, plan a day trip to somewhere special or new to explore.

- Decorate. Nothing gets me in the holiday (or Sabbat) spirit like decorating. As a child decorating for Christmas was the best because that was the only time we put up decorations. Now, as an adult, I use whatever I have handy to decorate for every Sabbat I can to make me feel more festive.

- Offerings. If you work with spirits of deities, you may wish to put together some sort of offering for them when you celebrate. This can be food, special rocks or flowers from outside, or something you’ve made yourself.

- Spells. Sabbats are prime times to do spells for me. The spells I cast are reflections of the coming season and what I want from them.

- Crafts. There are a ton of different little projects for Sabbats floating around on the internet. Get creative and make something! If you are on a budget, make something with what you have, or modify a craft to include what you have. I like to make something new each year for the Sabbats (it’s an easy way to get “decorations” too!)

- Divination. Nothing says celebration like a good old fashion look into the future. Choose any form of divination that you’d like and do a reading for yourself. 

- Journaling. Sometimes the easiest way to celebrate and connect is to get into your own head. Let the Earth inspire you. Stare out a window (or sit outside if you can) and just watch what happens around you. Let it inspire you to create. Journal about your own feelings, write a freestyle poem or sketch and paint what you see.

⛤ Creating a Ritual

Not all rituals have to be long and elaborate. Some of my favorite rituals are just sitting around in sweatpants with a hot cup of cocoa and my journal, reflecting on the season and my life. Ask yourself these questions to help piece together how a ritual would be best done for you.

- What am I celebrating? How can I celebrate this?
- Who am I worshiping?
- How much space do I have?
- How much time do I have?
- Why am I celebrating this Sabbat?
- What do I/can I buy for my celebrations?

The important thing for Sabbats isn’t how grand your ritual is, it’s all about gaining something from it, whether that be a nice warm fuzzy feeling or a great insight into your life. 

⛤ Reflection and Meditation

After each Sabbat day, I find it helpful if I reflect upon what I did that day and how my celebration went. This is when I do most of my journaling, but you don’t have to write anything. You can simply sit and rest and meditate on the day if you wish. Use this time to unwind.

- What did I do today? How do I feel about it?
- What ideas do I have for next year?
- What did this year’s Sabbat teach me?
- What was my favorite part of today’s celebration?
- What was my least favorite?

Happy Celebrating!

10 Things To Add To Your Self-Care Routine Today

1. Be kind to yourself - our words create our worlds. Use words that empower you rather than those that limit you. Instead of saying “I’m suffering” you can say “I’m in the process of healing”.

2. Treat yourself - you deserve it. Take yourself out on dates and spoil yourself with your favourite foods, movies & whatever else you love to do. This strengthens the relationship you have with yourself & invites more love into your life.

3. Spend time with those you love - surround yourself with positive energy. It’s pretty difficult to show yourself love when you’re surrounded by negativity. Spend time with those who make you forget to check your phone.

4. Be present with yourself - listen to your self-talk. Pay attention to the thoughts that run through your mind and observe the effect they have on your emotions.

5. Exercise - move into the body. Neglecting the body will result in poor physical & mental health over time - move into it to release energy that has been suppressed.

6. Healthy food - nourish your body & mind. The foods we eat will determine how we feel, both physically & mentally, choose the foods that will make you feel good.

7. Creativity - express yourself. Creativity is expression of the soul and can release built up energy that has been repressed inside of us - this is extremely important for self-care.

8. Nature - reconnect with yourself. When in nature observe how the animals & plants behave and see yourself reflected in them. The flowers are patient when waiting to bloom & the animals are totally present in the now.

9. Sleep - recharge your batteries. The most important aspect of self-care is knowing when you need to rest, sleep is vital for recovery of the body and our mind. You cannot feel well if you’re sleep deprived.

10. Mindfulness - be in the now. Looking after yourself means not missing out on life - when we spend any time outside of the present moment we waste our lives. Catch yourself when you project into the past or future and ground yourself in the now using your senses.

The root of all suffering is a lack of self-love.

Peace & positive vibes.

Ways to Celebrate Pretty Much Every Pagan Holiday

(And most of these work no matter how discreet you have to be!)

  • Food- No holiday is complete without a feast! Have a potluck, try a new recipe in the kitchen, or just contemplate your usual dinner and be thankful that you have food. Lots of sabbats have popular recipes or ingredients that you could try making, or incorporate those types of foods into your meals.
  • Spend Time Outdoors- Have a picnic, go on a walk, or just sit on a chair and observe nature for a little while. Feel the air and observe how the seasons have changed.
  • Pay it Forward- Celebrate family, do something nice for your friends, or volunteer in your community.  Go out and help people. ‘Tis the season!
  • Clean and Cleanse- A lot of holidays focus on some type of new beginnings. Clean your space and cleanse yourself of any residual energies you may be holding onto. Getting everything tidy and organized is a great way to give yourself a foundation for the coming year, no matter when that year begins!
  • Self Reflect- Think about where you were 365 days ago. How much you’ve grown, what you’ve gained and lost, what lessons you have been taught. What are your goals for the future? What is your next step?
  • Regular Worship- If you have any deities that you regularly interact with, consider giving them an offering and thanking them for just being a part of your life.

8 Ways You Can Create A Positive Life Today

The ultimate form of self-love is creating a positive way of life for yourself, regardless of what has come before you can create a better tomorrow.       

Here’s how:

1. Be selfish - create the life YOU want to live. Forget about what everyone else wants for you and think about what makes you happy. What excites you? What are your dreams? Pursue them without regard for anyone else’s opinions or feelings - this is YOUR life, live it for yourself.

2. Love - centre your life around what you love. A positive way of life comes from positive thoughts and positive thoughts are created from positive actions. Positive actions are those that move you toward what you love to do, so paint, dance, sing - doing what you love will fill today with positive experiences & thoughts.

3. Negativity - has no room in your life anymore. You have to make a commitment to getting rid of negativity in all forms. Whether that’s people, habits or activities you’re involved with - you cannot hope to have a positive life if you’re surrounded by negativity. Negative surroundings = negative thoughts and negative thoughts create a negative life.

4. Nature - observe the natural flow of life. Make time to be with the natural energy of the planet - observe how there is no stress, no expectations & no time. When we immerse ourselves in nature it’s clear to see how much we can learn from the environment we came from.

5. Fresh start - every day is a new day. Each sunrise is a reminder that yesterday has gone - today brings thousands of opportunities for us to create the life we love. Living in the now allows us to make the most of the time we have on this planet - a second lived outside of the present moment is a second wasted.

6. Time with yourself - reconnect with who you truly are. We can become consumed by negativity when we identify with our struggles, hardships or the opinions others hold of us. This is why it’s absolutely essential for us to spend time with ourselves to gain perspective on our lives - who we are & what we came here to do.

7. Authenticity - be yourself. If you’re living a lie - it will be very difficult to live a positive way of life. Ask yourself why you aren’t being true to yourself and what you want from the time you have left on the planet. When you behave in a way that makes you happy you will begin experiencing a truly positive life.

8. Gratitude - the best attitude. Be grateful for everything you have in your life right now. Thank the universe for the fact that you have life right now, here are things I thank the universe for every day - thank you for my sight, hearing, creativity, ability to walk, speech, the people in my life, my dogs & for allowing me to experience this reality as a human with a functioning body.

You can’t live a positive life with a negative mind.

Peace & positive vibes.

Pothos ‘marble queen’ - when a pothos becomes floppy, it is crying out “I’m VERY thirsty!” and should be watered immediately. As you become more familiar with the plant, you can get to watering before getting yelled at. The time between watering is mostly dependent on the amount of light the plant receives. There’s so much more to light than just “the sun”. I could write a whole chapter just on indirect light - actually, I will! FAQ: planter/stand comes from @ivymuse_melb - thank you!

Blue sky of Pluto

The Pluto Mist layer shows its blue color in this photograph taken by the New Horizons Ralph / Multispectral (CMVM) visible image camera. The high altitude haze is thought to be similar in nature to that observed on Saturn’s moon Titan. The source of both mists probably involves chemical reactions initiated by sunlight from nitrogen and methane, which leads to relatively small particles of soot (called tholins) that grow as they settle toward the surface. This image was generated by software that combines information from blue, red and near infrared images to replicate the color of a human eye perceives as much as possible.

8th house Through the lens 🌺🌑


* Aries cusp: dynamic, blunt and independent at heart-stubborn and contemptuous when it comes to their intimate nature. Once you get past the calm of there Pisces 7th house you enter a realm of passion and intensity. They can seemingly be an entirely different individual once you’ve known them for quite sometime or achieve intimacy. They can be overwhelming and constantly pouring energy into their understanding of what it means to connect on a soul level. Death may be something all to familiar to them and often in a gritty and visceral way as with the nature of mars. Inheritance can often either be a battle or a passed lineage of sorts-martial money can be a source of agitation in the marriage and also be a source of the biggest lose due to the axis of libra/Aries. The occult is of interest for these individuals but there is a danger of being overly aggressive towards the world of the dead and attracting negative spirits. Sex is often rough in nature but deeply giving and passionate. Albeit they say these natives(depending on where mars is located) don’t always like prolonged sex.


* Taurus cusp: endearing, charming yet willful at heart. Once you’ve survived the more aggressive and in your face Arian 7th house and have known these natives for some years you often get to meet there move slower and down to earth side. There more cautious and easygoing nature whom seems to see life as a bag of chocolates both litturly and figuratively. There more passive and bullheaded nature may surprise you and what’s even more there realistic amount of patience may have you a loss for words from their earlier Arian dc. Often times the energy towards the occult is peaceful and often times experiences with the afterlife and paranormal activity remain benevolent unless mars or Pluto and maybe even harsh Uranus and Neptune are involved. Sex unlike there Aquarian/or Capricorn 5th May suggest will become much more sensual and tender in its expression as well as their more innate possessive nature


* Gemini cusp: sharp in wit and penetrating in their thoughts and observations. Unlike there more body based 7th house whom often read things in a more physical sense-once you really get to know these individuals you not only will be in for a change in their usual routines but a more probing mind behind the pleasing and sensuous demeanor. There fascination can fly from topic to topic at an almost alarming rate as well as what stimulates them on a physical and mental compasity. Many of their true feelings reside in the unseen and the unspoken in human nature be it astrology be it psychology be it the lime light of religion or the dim light of death. Their thoughts can be dark but it never consumes them. Sex here is seen as a concept rather than an ideal and often times they detach from the act itself and have a hard time opening up to intimacy out of a fear of truly letting down the invincible Barriers and chains they’ve shackles themselves too. Money here is often a game of wits and these natives often have to play their cards right in terms of investments and settlements-“play the game before it plays you”


* Cancer cusp:deeply feeling and worldly compassionate-a heavy chasm of emotion and sensitivity lie in wait once you get past the meager mask of the wordy banter and intellectual sparing that is their 7th house. You’ll often be overwhelmed by their true natures-whom are strong in their emotional presence but even stronger in their resilience and spiritual backing. These are the people whom I like to call the trauma fighters! They often deal with hardships and even harsher relationships with their mothers and even on an emotional level in general and walk through the fires without a trace of defeat. Albeit there is a pronounced sensitivity much of it comes from their need to belong and make a home-one that cannot be taken away. Sex here is very melding and very turbulent. These people have to be emotionally “ok” before they engage in it and sex takes on the energy of what their feeling-anger-sadness-joy- and so on. Their could be trouble with money in relation with women and inheritance may stem from the women in the family. Death could be a result of diseases in the mothers side as similar with moon in 6th or cancer on 6th. High receptivity here and even intuitiveness bordering on the psychic.


* Leo cusp: arrogant, above and powerful. A raging lion hides behind their more sensitive and calming sensibility that is their 7th house. Often times this is a escalation rather then a duo personality. Often times you see the nurturing and the intimate aspects of them but the Leo hides beneath these displays and shows itself as attention seeking and subtle manipulation as a way and means to receive admiration to fuel their inner personality. They love-they romance-they dance-they shout their loud but they’re youthful and pleasure seeking-the truest form of daredevils who challenge themselves in the darkness. The have an insatiable need for chaos in there intimate lives and can often attract it unconsciously as a means to have a better understating of their truest selves! Hence the(sun). Money matters are deeply rooted to their self worth and inheritance can come from males-that being said it may be something that has to be earned. Also once more like the moon-fathers side of the family could be what and where illness related to the death might occur. Sex here is passionate and authentic! They pour their love onto those they love and can be a bit tyrannical and dominate but I wouldn’t say the “I” aspect present in Leo mars is visible here with having Leo on the 8th house cusp! It’s more protective and “they” oriented.


* Virgo cusps: meticulous and cautious-innocent and nervous unlike their more outspoken and confident persona in their 7th house. They may surprise you with how shy and quiet they really can be deep down! They can seem like night and day at times and once you get to know them intimately they fluctuate between moments of confidence and moments of hubris. They’re immensely calculated and have a very focused and watchful nature-often preferring to observant rather than action oriented. They feel extremely homey these people and can have a very serene and peaceful energy about them that you wouldn’t expect. They can have a narrow minded view towards the occult and often avoid it. Inheritance is something that is planned out and well versed here. Sex here takes on a more sensuous yet pleasing disposition-unlike virgo mars the theme of service plays out in sex more often but the give and take of satisfaction colors sex here


* Libra cusp: passive, noble-and an internal lover at heart. Due to the nature of venus being in the 8th here unlike Taurus there are some variances-while the Tauren cusp natives may-oscillate between obsession and compulsion those with the libra cusp oscillate between desire and lust. Unlike their more critical 7th house they’re often more on the laid back and welcoming side of things and seek honest and open communication with those they care for-they’re immensely forgiving of the flaws of others and even implore the qualities one may see as a burden, because to them every aspect of human nature even in its ugliest nature is beautiful. They often see the beauty in chaos. Inheritance is usually simplistic and without much trouble and they’re often lucky in these endeavors. Relations with the occult are also pleasant although these people are more interested in the familial aspect of the afterlife and much like cancer on the 8th May seek communion with lost family members or lovers. Sex here is deeply intimate and an ideal union! They seek mutual stimulation of their partner and in turn them! Many people say these people prefer classy sex as opposed to messy and raw sex but I beg to differ this is the libra/Aries axis so they often fluctuate between the lusty side and the innocent side.


* Scorpio cusp: brooding, volatile-intense and deeply complex. Unlike they’re more sociable and superficial libra in the 7th once you get to really know these individuals you’ll meet an entirely different beast. There is a noticeable shift once time passes with these guys and gals-I wouldn’t say they become scary or anything but they do show they’re more serious and darker sides-the parts of them that are on the fringe-the sides of them that are weak and unsure-the sides of them searching for meaning and deep beyond what words can convey. They are powerful immensely yet they live in the dark and often times they’re unaware of there attraction to the world where light looses its power. Yet these are some of the purest and most compassionate souls you’ll ever meet. Inheritance is usually a landscape of manipulation and power plays but since Scorpio is in its own house these natives usually come out on top. Sex can be overwhelming to say the least and can easily become a fixation! They want to consume and desire to be consumed. They want an exchange of souls and to die nothing more and nothing less-if they come back then the odds where in their favor.


* Sagittarius cusp: spontaneous, daring, intense-yet playfully young. Unlike there more serious and demanding Scorpio 7th house once you get to really know them they’re truly children at heart-obnoxious and curious of the body and the realm of the soul and it’s departure. Much like Leo I dare say most times with the water dc and fire 8th house there is a tug of war dynamic where the water house is the leader and the 8th house is the underground influence. Often times they’re intensely propelled into their desires so much so that the grand nature of Sagittarius seeks to completely engulf it yet the sagittrian influence often grows frightened of their needs for utter and complete devotion-it clashes with their sense of exploration yet it’s the driving force behind their truth. They’re eager and forever energetic but have an exaggerative and “jump before leaping” personality. Inheritance is a blessing for them and usually marriage is a happy and beautiful thing for them and their bank and not in a shallow way either it just kinda is! Sex wise they’re passionate and insatiable! Once they’re in love they want it all the time and wherever they can! Anywhere knew and even if it’s the same place they don’t mind so long as they get to completely enjoy they’re lover in totality.


* Capricorn cusp: heavy, structured-reserved and erotic. Unlike their more bubbly and on the go 7th house in sag they really tend to be quite worrisome and somber deep down-many have a fear of true intimacy and avoid it at all cost or project this insecurity in strong sexual escapades as coping mechanism-unlike sag 8th house cusp who feels torn between commitment and freedom these natives are torn between intimacy and isolation. They unknowingly distance themselves from others who try to get close and often this becomes apparent when you truly get to know them-the walls begin forming and the person once bubbly begins to grow rather serious and cautious of both your feelings and you as a person. They are often wise beyond their years and extremely devoted despite their sag qualities projected earlier. Inheritance can be a hard fought battle and often money is scarce in early years but after the age of 30 things start looking up! Sex here is either done without feeling or is done deeply and with all of the soul. These people tend to hold of sex till their later years and don’t emphasize on it unless it’s with someone whom they love-but I suppose if you’ve brought out their 8th house you’ve made it right?


* Aquarius cusp: eccentric, electric, chaotic and completely out of reach. Unlike their more somber and reserved Capricorn dc these natives tend to be a bit unified with their Capricorn and their Aquarian energy-both of these signs being ruled by Saturn here creates a quiet and seeming-less transition that you don’t catch yet something that’ll leave you confused down the road. They can be serious and stern one moment and then childlike and far away the next. Something about them seems so eerie yet like a electric current constantly fluxing in its velocity. They’re both captivating and open and have a very unique yet detached view towards intimacy that becomes very prevalent upon getting to know them. They’re far more flexible then their cap dc suggest-yet their also far more emotional and intense then their Aquarius 8th suggest. They often cherish the chaos in their minds and live of it-there madness is their greatest source of change! These people often handle their turmoil in a detached way and I refer to this placement as the “dual psyche” placement as often times they handle their pain as if they’re a stranger looking in. Inheritance and money for that matter is a random occurrence and usually comes and goes but what’s amazing is that they’re never bad off money comes back just as quickly as it goes. Sex here is INTENSELY felt for these natives! I wouldn’t say they’re detached-especially when in love they lose themselves in their partners but there is an aspect of them that’s always watching from above never truly “there” sex comes in burst for them and there sex drive is fairly high but that’s more of a idea than a concept.



* Pisces cusp: evasive, fluid, synergy and the big yin and yang. Unlike their more detached personal image of their aqua dc there is a pronounced depth and emotional receptivity that’s often surprising to those who get to know these individuals. They’re huge music lovers and even bigger lovers of the world we call purgatory-they often never truly exists among us and constantly shift and phase in and out of reality and the world lying just beyond our own consciousness. They often project their more detached and rational front as a means to protect their more vulnerable side-inheritance wise their must be caution to those who may try to scam or seduce you out of what’s yours-this includes your spouse. The occult is a danger here as your grasp in the world of the living is already thinly held so it’s very easy for spirits to be drawn to you for that matter and of a more malicious intent. Sex here is often a means of completely losing oneself and even disappearing all together. They so sensitive sexually and often times sex feels like the first time always with them due to the depth of their feelings-sexual addictions and drug addictions are a possibility if taken to far.
