Castiel Imagine

Imagine: Castiel telling you that you are the most beautiful thing he has ever seen (ft. the Winchesters).

(not my GIF)

You watched Dean’s lower lip twitch in the faint light, envying his serene expression and easy slumber. It seemed he could turn the mess that was a bad hunt off like a light switch - the gore, the fear, the failure. You could hardly blink without picturing the bloody disaster.

Sam whistled under his breath, “Nice one!”

You rolled your head toward the younger Winchester, “Missed it.” Frowning, your gaze turned back to the sky. It was the peak of the annual Orionid meteor shower on a perfect fall night and you could hardly focus on an event that usually brought you joy.

Sam knowingly squeezed your knee, “Don’t be so hard on yourself.”

You rested your hand on his arm in acknowledgment. Sam understood the blame game - he played it almost as frequently as you.

Dean mumbled something mostly incoherent about clown noses and began to snore lightly.

You stared at Sam, biting your lip, catching an amused twinkle in his eyes, unable to stifle your laugh.

“It’s the big red shoes, what?” Dean bolted awake, uncrossing his arms, warily blinking at you and Sam, “Did I miss it?”

“The circus?” You arched an eyebrow askance.

Sam sniggered.

“What? No,” Dean’s lip curled up in confusion, “The shooting stars. What circus?”

Your ears perked up at the familiar flutter of angel wings.

“What are you doing on the roof?” Castiel searchingly glanced around before settling his gaze on the three of you huddled shoulder to shoulder against the wall.

“Getting a stiff neck,” Dean grimaced and stood up, stretching.

“Why?” Cas took a step forward, squinting in puzzlement.

“We’re watching the meteor shower,” you offered.

“Were watching,” Dean countered, “I’m going to hit the sheets.”

Cas’ head tilted in bewilderment, “Have they done something wrong?”

Dean held up a finger, mouth gaping and unable to form a reply.

“Good idea,” Sam hopped up, dusting off his jeans, “you good Y/N?”

“I will be, thanks guys,” you put on a smile to reassure them, “Goodnight.”

“Don’t you kids stay up too late,” Dean mockingly chided.

Sam punched his brother in the arm and pushed him through the door - knowing your secret affection for Cas, he gave you a parting wink.

Grateful for the dark, your cheeks flushed pink under the intense scrutiny of the angel.

“May I join you, Y/N?” Cas ceased staring at you and cast his eyes to the sky.

“Yeah,” you nodded and gave him a weak smile, “I’d rather not be alone, bad day.”

He sat beside you, taking a moment to gauge the appropriate social response before speaking, “Do you want to talk about it?”

“Not really,” your gaze returned back to the sky, observing the streak of a particularly splendid meteor, “just a lot of ugly in the world. Sometimes it’s hard to see the good.”

“I understand,” he said, voice low.

Even if he didn’t truly understand, the words and his presence were enough to bring you a small measure of peace. You sat in comfortable silence for some time before you sensed his overt contemplation of you. “Cas?” You quietly murmured, continuing to observe the sky, hoping to dispel the awkwardness, “What’s the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen?” The air became so still you thought perhaps he’d flown off and turned to see if he was still beside you.

He regarded you, wide-eyed, as if caught by surprise.

“It must be hard to choose,” you nervously prattled, unsure of how to interpret his reaction, “you’ve seen so much, been so many places.”

“It’s not that,” he spoke sincerely, “the answer is simple. It’s you.”

You gaped at him, “What?”

“You,” he reiterated, “you are the most beautiful thing I have ever seen.”

You continued to glare at him, heart bounding in your chest, stupefied by his response.

He glanced away, abashed, brow furrowing.

“Me?” You finally managed to croak, still disbelieving.

“You said most beautiful,” he hesitated to meet your eyes again, “I can choose a different answer if you prefer. Perhaps the Atacama Desert, in bloom with pink mallow flowers after an 18-year drought.”

“No,” you shook your head, dropping your chin, “I mean, I.” Your mind raced. Your stifled feelings for the angel bubbling over, tongue stammering, unable to articulate a response, finally exhaling his name with a heavy sigh, “Castiel.”

His hand cupped your cheek, soothing you. Angling your face back to his, he tenderly traced his thumb over your lips, an unspoken question in his blue eyes as they flitted from yours to your mouth.

You found yourself leaning forward, lips delicately ghosting over his, the kiss naturally deepening as though you’d kissed a thousand times before.

What’s Up for November 2016

What’s Up for November: Venus at sunset, Jupiter at dawn, your last evening glimpse of Saturn until spring, and more meteors!

Through November 3, catch glimpses of a gibbous Venus, a crescent moon and ringed Saturn in the southwest sky just after sunset.

Wake up before sunrise every day this month to see Jupiter just above Spica, the brightest star in the constellation Virgo, shining in the east-southeast sky.

Just before dawn on November 23-24, see the waning crescent moon just above Jupiter.

November is a great time to see the constellation Ceres as it glides past Cetus, the Whale and you will be able to see the dwarf planet move relative to the background stars, but you’ll need a telescope for this one.

This month, just like last month, there will be three meteor showers–the Northern Tuarids, the Leonids and the November Orionids.

Orionids Meteor Shower Magick 🌠

Originally posted by tvdads

The Orionids Meteor Shower is to take place on October 20th through October 22nd, with its peak being on October 21st. The Orionids Meteor Shower is named for the constellation Orion and is produced by debris that breaks away from Halley’s Comet.

The constellation Orion is associated with self-confidence, strength, victory, and winter storms, therefore magickal workings having to do with such things would be appropriate to perform during this time.

Associated herbs:

  • Allspice 
  • Basil
  • Bay leaf 
  • Cinnamon 
  • Cinquefoil 
  • Coffee 
  • Dragon’s Blood
  • Ginger 
  • Grapefruit 
  • Heliotrope 
  • Marjoram 
  • Neroli 
  • Nutmeg
  • Parsley 
  • Red pepper
  • Rosemary
  • Sage 
  • Sunflower
  • Tangerine
  • Tobacco 
  • Vanilla

Associated crystals:

  • Agate
  • Amethyst
  • Aquamarine
  • Aragonite
  • Bloodstone
  • Bronzite
  • Chrysocolla
  • Cuprite
  • Diamond
  • Dioptase
  • Garnet
  • Gyrolite
  • Lapis Lazuli
  • Lepidolite
  • Onyx
  • Quartz
  • Richterite
  • Sardonyx
  • Serpentine
  • Sodalite
  • Sunstone
  • Variscite

Associated Colors:

  • Gold
  • Orange
  • Red

Magickal Ideas:

  1. Make Star Water with a pinch of gold, orange, or red glitter
  2. Create the constellation Orion out of crystals
  3. Carve the constellation into a wax cube or candle and let it melt 
  4. Use the constellation pattern as a symbol of power
  5. Burn a blend of corresponding incense
  6. Brew up a self-confidence potion (your favorite coffee or hot chocolate, perhaps) and drink it under the stars
  7. Make offerings to Orion
  8. Go outside, locate the meteor shower in the sky, and harness energy from it 
  9. Use the energy from the meteor shower to charge various items
  10. Summon the spirit of Orion to aid in your spellwork for the evening of the meteor shower

Solar System: Top 5 Things to Know This Week

Here are five things you need to know about our amazing solar system this week: 

1. Perpetual Pluto-palooza

The New Horizons spacecraft continues its ongoing download of data and images from the July 14 flyby of the Pluto system. In the latest weekly release, the new images don’t disappoint, showing fine details in an exotic landscape. The New Horizons team has also described a wide range of findings about the dwarf planet’s system in its first science paper. Learn more HERE.

2. Encounter at Enceladus

The Cassini spacecraft has returned the closest images ever showing the north polar region of Saturn’s intriguing ice moon Enceladus. Scientists expected the area to be heavily cratered, but the new high-resolution Cassini images also show a landscape of stark contrasts, crisscrossed by a spidery network of gossamer-thin cracks that slice through the craters. The robotic spacecraft buzzed by the moon during the first of what will be three close encounters this year – the last of the long mission. Next up: on Oct. 28 Cassini will deep dive right through Enceladus’ famous ice geyser plume! Learn more HERE.

3. We’re Giving You the Whole World, Every Day

We have worked with NOAA to launch a new website that shows the full, sunlit side of the Earth on a daily basis. The images come from our camera a million miles away aboard the Deep Space Climate Observatory (DSCOVR). Each daily sequence of images shows the Earth as it rotates, revealing the entire planet over the course of a day. Take a look HERE.

4. Going Big at Jupiter

We have large, new maps of Jupiter, thanks to data from the Wide Field Camera 3 on our Hubble Space Telescope. The big images provide a detailed look at how the giant planet’s features change over time. In fact, the maps are just the first in a planned series of yearly portraits of the solar system’s four outer planets. The views come as we prepare for the Juno mission to arrive at Jupiter in little less than a year. 

5. Catch a Falling Star

Meteors aren’t really falling stars, just dust and rock from deep space meeting a fiery end in Earth’s atmosphere – but they’re a sight to behold if you can catch a glimpse. The Orionid meteors appear every year around this time, when Earth travels through an area of space littered with debris from Halley’s Comet. This year the peak will occur on the night of Wednesday, Oct. 21, into the morning of Thursday, Oct. 22. Find out how to watch HERE

There’s going to be an Orionid meteor shower tonight — but it might be hard to see

Bad news for stargazers: Although the Orionid meteor shower is usually one of the best annual light showers of the year, 2016 will be a different story. According to Space.com, the shower will be offset by the glare of the waning gibbous moon. But there is one time you should be able to see it.

Solar System: Things to Know  This Week

This week, we’re looking at MAVEN’s exploration of Mars, the Orionid meteor showers, Mercury’s “great valley” and more.

1. Celebrating MAVEN

MAVEN, the Mars Atmospheric and Volatile Evolution, was the second mission selected for our Mars Scout program and the first to explore the planet’s upper atmosphere . It launched on November 18, 2013 and entered orbit around Mars on September 21, 2014. 

+ MAVEN Quick Facts

2. Jupiter Moon Dance

This time-lapse sequence of Hubble Space Telescope images shows Jupiter’s moon Europa as it moved across the planet’s face over the course of 19 minutes. Europa is at the bottom center on Jupiter’s disk, the Great Red Spot to the left and Europa’s shadow to its right. The video was created by combining six snapshots taken in ultraviolet light with Hubble’s Wide Field Camera 3.

+ Learn more

3. The Orionid Meteor Shower

Orionid shower peaks November 28. Look for the constellation Orion in the Southeast sky by 9 p.m. Using binoculars, look for the Orion Nebula. 

4. Comet Warming Up!! 

Comet 45P/Honda-Mrkos-Pajdu áková will brighten to expected stunning binocular visibility in mid to late December, but is near Venus on November 23rd.

+ Track the Comet

5. Mercury’s “Great Valley”

A newly discovered “great valley” in the southern hemisphere of Mercury provides more evidence that the planet closest to the sun is shrinking. Using stereo images from our MESSENGER spacecraft to create a high-resolution map, scientists have discovered that revealed the broad valley – more than 620 miles (1,000 kilometers) long – extending into the Rembrandt basin, one of the largest and youngest impact basins on Mercury. About 250 miles (400 kilometers) wide and 2 miles (3 kilometers) deep, Mercury’s great valley is smaller than Mars’ Valles Marineris, but larger than North America’s Grand Canyon and wider and deeper than the Great Rift Valley in East Africa.
